A real live opponent for Johnny
Kflbane and a chap entitled to a
chance at the featherweight crown
can be found in Baltmore, Md. He
is George Chaney, an awkward little
rascal who fights with his right hand
and foot forward, but is game and
fast and hits a terrific punch.
Chaney is without doubt the best
of the boys, not counting the cham
pion, who can really make 122
He is built close to the ground. He
has the shoulders and arms of a
wrestler. His left hand, the one with
which he deals out the sleep potion,
is abnormally developed, being much
larger than his right.
Cheney's record shows how deadly
Is his punch. He has had 58 bouts.
Ten were no-decision affairs. Of the
remaining 48 he scored knockouts
At one time Chaney scored knock
outs in six consecutive fights. Twice
he has scored five consecutive knock
outs. More than half of Chaney's knock
outs have been scored in five rounds
or less. He scored six in one round,
four in two, seven in three, eight 4n
four and four in five.
Chaney is a better hitter than the
champion himself. His last fight was
a one-round knockout victory over
Carranza, new ruler of Mexico, will
substitute America's national pas
time, baseball, for bullfights when
the southern republic is pacified. t
Carranza, then, would silence the
cry of "Bravo toro" (brave bull) and
make the sport cry of the nationi

Effort to replace Mexicans' faVor-t
ite sport will be interesting to watch
The Mexican is born with a passion'
for bull fights. It remains to be seei
if the crack of a base hit will excitef
him, as the bull fight has intoxicate
him to such a degree that only sight
and "sangre" (blood) will appeasef
the tension to which his nervous sys-
tern is wrought.
The Mexican, like the fan who wilP.

The arena in which fights are held
has two sections, "soil" and "som-
bra," like the bleachers and grand-
stands of ball parks. "Sol" is the part1

cost $2. "Sombra" is the shaded part'
where seats cost from $5 to $10. -
It will be interesting to see if Mex-
icans will idolize the Sons of SwaF
as they have idolized "matadors."
The "matadors" are paid from $750r
to $2,000 for each fight and makeT
from $35,000 to $50,000 a year. A?
ballplayer who gets $10,000 is high-:
