Valgar Faces Fox
lu Newark Rini*;
Tunney vs. Roberts
Tho Newark Sportsmen's Club has
four feature bouta on its program for
to-night. Tho principnls include fea
therweighta. lightweights nnd liirht
heavyweights. The matches nre as fol?
Bcnny Valgar vs. Joey Fox; Eddie
Fitzimmons vs. Jimmy Duffy; Battllng
Reddy vs. Charlie Beechor; Gone Tun?
ney vs. Al Roberts.
Considerable interest attaches to
Valgar's bout. with Fox, as the Newark
club is negotiating vvith feathorwcight
champion .lohnny Kilbane to mecl tho
"French Flash" at its next show in the
event that Valcrar scores an impressive
victory over the Englishmnn
Eddie Fitzsimmons, tho new "knock
out king" of tho lightwcight . <? k
ing his first local appearancc. Under the
mnnagement of tho aatuto Dan .Mor?
gan, Fitz, in tho last year, has devel
oned a lathal punch which has
him t.o the foromost ranks o
pound division. Ho and Duf:
g.ifcing in a return match.
several years>ago at ono of
shore clubs in New Ycrk and the
Side lrishman gavo Eddio a thorough
trouncing, knocking him down sevoral
times and all but stoppit.g him. Fitz
simniona was not us prominent a factor
in his class then as ho is now.
Tunney, one of the most prominent]
of the boxers doveloped ln tho army, |
is receiving tho severast. test he has
been subjectod to sinco his dischargo
from service. Although hia opponent,
Roberts, has been defeated, the Staten
Island neavyweight is n *ough trial ]

t'ion of the A. E. F. Ho is moro formid- j
I ablo than tho class of men Tunney has
! been meeting.
i Battllng Reddy, who meets Charlio '
j Beechor ln the fourth number of tho i
I card, is a newcomer on tha program. '
He haa been substituted for .lohnny '
Murray, who ran out. of the match with
tho ex-amateur bantamwoight cham- (
pion. Murray offered no excuse for i
declininp; tho test, bcyond saying that
I he could not box Beecher again. Beech?
or defeated Murray in one of his first

The large representation of college
athletes ln tho Brooklyn College in
door carnivnl at tho Mth Rcgimcnt,
Amory, Brooklyn, last Saturday eve?
ning, was one of the pleasing featres of
the games. ln former years the colleges
wero roluctant to enter their runners in
all of the big moetinga ln thc East The
pnncipal reasons advancod wero the
expenso and the fact. that students were
taken away from their studies.
Lawson Robertson, of Penn, showed
a quartet of runners in the special one
mile mtercollegiate relay race that ap?
pears most ormidable. Five colleges
opposed the Philadelphla men, but al?
waya trailcd far back after the first re?
lay. Frank Davis, who ls going far out
of his distance when attempting 440
yards, however, covered in 54 seconds
while Maxam, Smith and Gustafson
wero all under 63 seconds, Maxam's
elTort being 61 2-6 aeconds.
Rutgers did well in finishing third
about ono yard back of Georgetown,
which was second, and thirty-tjve be?
hind Penn. Carl Anderson, the Rut ?
gers' coach, was exceedingly plcascd
at the smart performanee of his men,
who havo not yet rounded to form. An?
derson timed his team in 3:36. and hc
believes that in a short time he will
have his athlctes within the 3:30 circlc.
Mike Devaney's defeat in the Brook?
lyn College Thousand was attributed
by many spectators to the absence of
his well-known finifihinp spirit. His
carelessnesn in permittin-; Homer Baker
to steal a big advantage on him also
aided in his downfall. When Devaney
had cut down Baker's lead to five yards
on the final turn many expected the
Millrose man lo overtake the leader,'
but the task was too great.
Alvah T. Meyer, the former Trish
I Ameriean runner, after four years in
i retirement. failed to come throuirh in
i the 70-yard handicap sprint race. Meyer
will doubtleBS come into his own soon,
j and it is almost a certainty that he will
I join the Loughlin Lyceum.
Billy Queal, coach at Yale, expects
much from Eddie Driscoll, the middle
distance runner. Dmcoll did not start
in the special 1,000-yard run, as he
arrived too Iate at the armory to ob- !
t-am the raucb needed warming up '
jaunts prior to the race. Driscoll later |
started in the>l,uOO-yard handicap run. I
but was unable to show at his best ,
against the big field.

Captain X had taken with him a liberal
supply of his favorite PALL MALL,

began smoking the popular, round cig?

Back in America once more, the Captain
came and gave us his idea?a big idea.
He suggested that we make PALL MALL
cigarettes round in shape, loosely rolled,
?a cigarette that does not have to be
