ETW YORK, Nov. 24. Tex Rickard,
world famous fight promoter, the
wizard who overcame apparently In
superable obstacles to put on the Jef
fries - Johnson, Willard - Dempsey and
Dempsey-Carpentier fights, is now fight
ing a harder scrap than any champion
ever fought in any of his many arenas.
Two trusts are trying to smash Rick
ard. One wants to throw him out of
the fight game,, which he has elevated
in New j ork from the plane of an
almost exclusively gunman's entertain
ment to that of a spot thickly patron
ized by the ladies and gents of the

CHAMPS TURN OTT HIM
Benny Leonard and Jack Britton,
lightweight and welterweight cham
pions respectively, will not fight for
Rickard. Johnny Wilson, the technical
middleweight champion, than whom
there is none more awful and never can
be, is' barred by Rickard, but has joined
Leonard and Britton. '
A great many non-champion fighters.
but good cards just the same, are re
ported to be stringing with these cham
pions to break Rickard for various
personal reasons. That's one trust.
.Then there is the wrestling trust.
1'IBST BOTTT A JOB
Monday night somebody "Bent In" a
faker to make a farce of Rickard's first
attempt at promoting in the wrestling
game in New York. John Pesek, the
Nebraska farmer, former comrade of
Strangler Lewis and other trust
wrestlers, entered the ring to wrestle
Marvin Plestina, the Italian, with a
lame elbow and without any training
at all. Pesek knew he couldn't wrestle
for a fall, but said he might be able
to make Pleetina quit by roughing him.
Pesek was disqualified three times for
gouging and resorting to other atro
cious tactics, and the last time the dis
qualification "took because the referee
jumped out of the ring and refused to
be further connected with what had alj
the characteristics of a trust enterprise.
CURLEY HEADS OJfE TRUST
Rickard's show j-as ruined and the
promoter might have been disgraced but
for the fact that thousands of people
suspected that Pesek had been "sent in
to sour the exhibition.
The head of the wrestling trust is
Jack Curley, promoter of the notorious
Gotch-Hackenschmidt fake in Comis
key's ball park. Chicago, years ago.

Recruit Gets Bigger
Check Than Coach
rrHREE out of the four Inter-club box-
X lng and wrestling bouts between the
Olympic club of San Francisco and the
Multnomah Amateur Atbieuc club rep
resentatives in the "Winged M" gymna
sium Wednesday night were recorded
as victories for the PorUander. The
whole card was above the average
amateur production, two of the goes end
ing In knockouts.
Olympic club s lone victory came in
the 135-pound boxing class when
Don Smith of Multnomah stopped one
too many with his Jaw and he was
forced to the canvass twice before .Ref
eree Ollie Dranga decided that the local
boy was through. Walter Dellamore was
the victor, and he clearly demonstrated
his superiority over the Multnomah
lightweight. The other boxing main
event was in the 145-pound Class. Clay
ton Frye being awarded the decision
at the end of three rounds with Herman
Alpers. Frye continually kept his left
hand in the Californian's face and only
Alpers' recuperating powers saved him
from taking the count
HAM LIT. GETS EYETf
Virgil Hamlin of Portland and Nathan
Sosnovsky of San Francisco are even
now. The two met in the 135-pound
wrestling division during the A. A. U.
championships at Los Angeles last
spring. Nate being awarded a decision
which Hamlin believed should have come
to the Oregon end of the program. The
twe star matmen met again Wednesday
night and Hamlin started right out to
even the score. He did. At the end of
the 15 minutes of hard work ie was
given the decision by Referee B. F.
Loom is. Sosnovsky made a desperate
effort to overcome Hamlin's aggressive
ness In the last three or four minutes
of the bout, but his spurt was too late
to bring him the call.
In the other wrestling number on the
nter-club card. Frank Bolln made quick
work of Ed Roper of San Francisco.
Bolin won the fall In 4 minutes and 14
seconds. The surprise of the night was
the defeat of Carl Freilinger of Multno
mah by Paul. Wilkinson, also of Mult
nomah, and formerly of the Washington
high wrestling team. Freilinger took
things easy for about seven minutes, and
then he evidently did something that
he shouldn't, for It put him on the de
fensive immediately. In the next minute
his shoulders were touching the mat and
he was the loser. Freilinger entered the
ring with a weak ankle, and he forgot
it until Wilkinson came upon him unexpectedly.
STENGEL IS WITT TTER
Bud Stengel, Multnomah's 125 pound
Northwest boxing champion, was award
ed the decision over Joe Blank of the
B'nal B'rith Amateur Athletic club, after
three hard rounds. Stengel boxed in
great form, but he found Blank a
tougher customer than he had antici
pated. Frank Sullivan of the Armory
Amateur Athletic association knocked
out Meyer Richenstein of the B. B. club
In the second round.
All the contestants will be guests of
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club at
the annual Thanksgiving day football
game against the University of Oregon
on Multnomah field this afternoon.
