WORD OF PRAISE FOR THE UNDERDOG The pitiable showing of George Hactenscliraiclt against ['Tank Gotch, Labor Day, lias urnllglit an avalanche oi harsh criticism ilmvn upon the head o! the hnrly Russian. While it would be folly to deny that Hack displayed a prominent yellow streak, and as a wrestler of cham- pionship class he casts a reflection on the title, still let it he remem- bered notwithstanding that the for- eigner stanris equal, if not above, his cnniincror intellectually, popularity anil" respectability. Let us he gener- ous to the under-dog amy give him praise on the merits which have won him such great popularity in this country previous to his defeat. G-ao. Haclicnschmldt acknowledges to 3-1 years of life In nearly 34 coun- tries. He lived ill Russia 20 years before he made up his mind to see a bit' of the world. Of good education the Russian tongue, he easily adapted himself to foreign climes and rapidly became familiar with foreign ways. He is master of several lan- guages other than Russian.

American Style .Hard Passing over his e.irly life, we find him three years ago on an invasion of this country, acclaimed the greatest wrestler living.

Me found the going rough and refused to con- tirwe the match under the conditions, claiming in his ciuiet way that he had been fouled continually and that fair means had been resorted to in nu effort to kill him at least in spirit. That was as far as he went In charges. r Hackensohmidt is not a Rarely does he take a drink of in- toxicating liquor, and then only in a .social way. lie has none of the de- ficiencies that have ruined so many athletes. The glare of red lights has no attraction for him. What he likes is to follow a quiet life, one away from the strife and noise. Home-loving Man His highest wish is to remain home. He is unmarried, claiming he never felt in the humor, but there is always that longing for a home that probably will cause him to get in the humor. The big. hearty wrestler is quiet in his conversation, in tact, so much so that a person must be quick of hear- ing and attentive to catch everything he has to say. He never "butts" into a conversation, unless some question Games in the Big Leagues NATIONAL Chicago 100 020 5 4 St. Louis 000 010 8 1 Prowii and Needham; Harmon and miss.
