years, but hopes for good results.
Fred Fulton, the Rochester, Minn.,
giant, and Andre Anderson, the local
heavyweight, will meet in Milwaukee
the night of Nov. 17 in a ten-round
milL Anderson's showing will be
awaited eagerly. He left New York,
according to his manager, because
the big fellows of that neighborhood
did not care for his game.
There is a new Rivers in the boxing
game. His first name is Ray. He is
a Mexican and was raised in Los An
geles, but despite all these things is
not related to Joe Rivers, who was a
candidate for the featherweight and
It is said of the new Rivers that he
not only fights with both hands, but
with his head. He is in the east look
ing for trouble among the feather
weights. The dash of Tom Snerlin across
the country to straighten out things
at Yale, where the eleven has been
walloped three times, recalls his
. work in 1910. Yale had been beaten'
9 to 2 by West Point and 21 to 0 by.
"Now let's go and get 'em in the
old Yale way," said Shevlin, as he be
gan whipping the team into shape.
Yale walloped Princeton 5 to 3 and
held Harvard to a scoreless tie.
Utah Agricultural college started
the football season with fine pros
pects. Five veterans were back
Capt. Johnson and Willey, ends;
Rigby, quarters; Luke and Peterson,
backs. All are married and friends
were proud of the prowess of the
benedict on the gridiron.
Then a couple of Capt. Johnson's
ribs were broken. His wife forbid
him to play again. Luke was made
captain, but one day he turned in his
uniform. He gave his wife as the
cause. Soon afterward Wiley .and
Rigby turned in theif suits. Their
wives did not want them to play.
A new captain had to be picked.
Peterson was the logical man, but the 1
players refused to again select a
married man. So the captaincy was
voted to Cy Owens, a big tackle. Be
fore a week had passed his engage
ment was announced.
That was about the last straw for
Coaches Teezte and Stamp, former
Michigan stars. They were already
tearing their hair trying to fill the
positions made vacant on the orders
of players' wives.
News of the disruption of the
eleven by Cupid spread north to
Utah University. Fearing they might
meet the same fate, Coaches Norgren
and Breathed issued an order bar
ring all members of the Utah Univer

functions where girls were to be pres

A kidding match.
Now two men, one a millionaire,
the other a Russian prince and one
of the most famous of sculptors, will
risk their lives in an auto race.
The millionaire is Harry Harkness,
president of the new Sheepshead
Bay speedway, the biggest in the
world. The sculptor is Prince Paul
Harkness and the member of the
Russian royalty, with friends, were
having tea in the Biltmore hotel, New
York, when a kidding match arose
over the ability of the prince to drive
a motor car. Defending himself, the
prince issued a challenge to Hark
ness. and offered to bet $10,000.
Harkness insisted that before the
race was held the prince should show
a speed of 80 miles an hour in trials.
The prince bought a racing car
that had been used in the Astor cup
races. When he appeared for his
speed trial he found his legs were so
long he could not get into the seat
and steer properly. He opened ne
gotiations for another car.
So these men have agreed to whiz
around an auto track at 80 miles an
hour, or faster, a feat heretofore left
to the daredevils of the auto game,
