it carries more sleep producing power
than Packey's. If Jack can penetrate
McParland's defense with one of his
haymakers the fight is liable to end
The fight will bea contest between
a wonderful defensive man with a de
cent punch and a fair defensive man
with a wicked wallop. The result
hinges on whether Britton can get
home one of his smashes. And no
battle of such a nature is a 2-to-l
proposition. There is too much
chance that the walloper will con
nect National League club owners be
gan arriving in New York this morn
ing for the annual meeting of the
organization. The two big topics of
conversation were the election of
Gov. Tener of Pennsylvania to head
the circuit, and the disposal of Joe
Tinker, deposed manager of the Cin
Garry Herrmann, president of the
Rhinelanders, and, according to his
own statement, the real manager,
said he wanted $20,000 worth of
players in exchange for Joey. Along

among the quintet is unknown. No
one at the offices here has authority
to talk, and the whereabouts of Pres.
Murphy remains a mystery.
Just get this. It wouldn't be sur
prising to see C. Webb walk down the
gangplank of some gteamer from
England before the National League
meeting is over.
Bombardier Wells and George Car
pentier are to fight twenty rounds in
London tonight for the championship
of something or other. Wells, who
was knosked out in four rounds by
Carpentier last June, and who took
the count from several American
mittmen, is a. 3-to-2 favorite.
This Battling Leyinsky, who has
been creating some stir in New York
heavyweight circles, will have a real
test tomorrow night when he goes
against Pueblo Jim Flynn for ten
rounds. Levinsky is a rugged, willing
rough-and-tumble fighter, but Jim's
experience may prove too much for
him. One thing can be said for Le
vinsky, he is not -afraid to fight. He
has done more work in the last two
months than all the other heavies in
Prospects for a football game be
tween Harvard and Chicago decided
ly bright, though Maroon authorities
have not declared in favor of the pro
posed clash. President Judson of the
Midway school says a meeting will be
called soon to consider Harvard's
challenge. vIt is not likely that action
will be taken before Coach Stagg re
turns from Pinehurst, N. C, where
he intends to remain until Jan. 5.
Charlie White is surely one trust
ing and optimistic guy. He has start
ed training for a fight with Ad Wol-
gast in Milwaukee, Dec. 19. Ad does
not believe he will shatter any ribs
between now and the date of fight.
Don't entirely ..overlook Harlem
Tommy Murphy in his championship
fight with Willie Ritchie on the coast
tomorrow night. Conditions are

history shows that he does his best
work on the coast, no matter what
his failing in the East.
