who could not beat any one of

period, came to this country and
was boosted into more money in
a year than the average Amen-'

second to at least six American
featherweights, is to be brought

Luis Firpo. an Argentinian,
fame to America, defeated three
or four comparatively unknown
men, and is talked of as an op
ponent for Jack Demnsey.

WALTER CAMP now selects I
his All-American football
teams with great territorial dis
cretion. In his latest he covers
North. South. East, West. No
section of the country can grum

In other years Mr. Camp's
All-Americans centered about
Yal?. Harvard and Princeton.
>!r. Camp has since discovered
that football is played elsewhere.
A wise man is always open to
conviction. Mr. Camp proves
his wisdom by broadening the
scope of his selections.
DID we consider Mr. Camp's
selections of any more im
portance than the selections of
any other well-halanced football
expert, we might seek a quarrel
Our quarrel would be on his
failure to place George Owen,
of Harvard, on his first eleven.
Owen, on accomplishment, is
one of the greatest football
players of the past ten years.

Watching the Harvard team
through the glasses in differ
ent games, it struck us that
Hubbard was somehow always
in every play. The an.iouncers,
who notify the newspaper men
high up in the press stand of
the details of a maneuver,
never mentioned the name of
ilubbard. in a manner of
speaking, was the silent mem

while his more spectacular
partners got the advertising.
We were afraid no one else
was watching Hubbard.

No announcement was forth
coming today from Naval

for next year's Army-Navy foot
ball game, -despite -the statement
from representatives of West

staged in the New York Yankees'

affirm nor deny that the 1923 game
will go to New York, merely stat
ing that the entire matter will
have to go before the executive
committer of the athletic associa

ment will be made. This probably
will be within the next few day*.
Like action will have to be taken
ss far as West Point is concerned.
It also was said here today thst
