CHICAGO, March 24. - Walter
Herbert Eckersall, one of football's
immortals, is dead.
Death, caused by a heart attack,
>vertook the famous streak of the
;ridiron suddenly at 2:30 p. m. to-
day in his room at the Chicago
Athletic club where he has been
bedridden for only a few days. He
was 46 years old.
Eckersall had been in failing
health for the past year but not
2ven his most intimate friends
realized that the end was so near.
Last fall, he jeopardized his health
by leaving a sick bed and continu-
ing his duties as football referee
and sports writer for the Chicago
Tribune for which he also became
famous. He never seemed to re-~
gain his old-time spark after that.
The death of his mother last fall
nearly broke his heart and his will
to live was hardly that of the 145
pound football player who used to
blast through ponderous lines way
lack in 1903-04-05-06.
Charles Dunkley, sports writer.
for the Associated Press and his
close friend for 20 years, was 'the
only one with Eckersall when he
died. Dunkley came to make his
daily call and found him dying. He
said Eckersall mumbled something
about a 20 yard gain and died
Football stars have beamed and
faded but very few gained the
fame that came to Eckersall, a slip
of a youth weighing about 135
pounds. He first attracted attention
while playing on the Hyde Park
high school team in Chicago. Re-
cruiting was not considered an ath-
letic sin in those days and several
universities and colleges learning
of his remarkable speed sought his
services. But he decided on the
University of Chicago where he
-ombined his natural speed and
talent with advice from Coach
Amos Alonzo Stagg, and startled
the football world which then was
used to the slam bang type of
game. Almost single handed, he,
crushed heavier and greater teams
than Chicago with his triple threat
artistry. His kicking was accurate
and dangerous, his open field run-
ning was a revelation.
"Ecky" as he was known to foot-
balldom both as a player, writer
and official, played two years as
an end. His first year 1903 he star-
red and in 1904, he gained a berth
on Walter Camp's All-American
team and became a fixture on that
mythical eleven, membership of
which was usually confined to the
East, for the rest of his college
2areer, 1905-06. The last two years,
he directed the Maroon at quarter-
back, meanwhile increasing his
weight to 145 pounds.
Johnny Risko Awarded
Decision Over Campolo
MADISON SQUARE GARDENS,
NEW YORK, March 24.-By a split
vote of the judges and referee
Johnny Risko, the Cleveland baker
boy, won a ten-round victory over
Victorio Campolo, tonight in a
vicious slugging battle.

"The country generally and she
Middle West in particular has lostl
one of its best and most colorful
athletic figures and one of the

cause of my friendship with and

WASHINGTON, March 24- With
a sovereign state challenging for
the first time the authority of the
Federal government to say who
shall operate a radio station, the
long distance quarrel between Gov-
ernor Green of Michigan and the
Federal Radio commission was re-
newed both here and in Lansing
The commission touched it off
with an announcement that it had
asked the department of justice to
to instruct its agents in Michigan
to arrest anyone who started work
on the state police radio station,
which Gov. Green had said wouldI
be built without a permit from the'
This brought an immediate re-
ply from the Governor, who declar-
ed "regardless of federal arrest the

that a station be established and
appropriated funds for its construc-
tion," he said. "We expect to car-
