Gymnasium endeavors keep the bel
ligerent person busy in the after
noons. With the postponement of hostili
ties Moran decided to remain at Sar
anac two weeks longer and adhere
strictly to skattagr-vgnow shoveling
and wood-chopping. This combina
tion of labor and pleasure brings into
play every muscle in the fighter's
make-up.
After ten miles of speed skating in
the morning Moran rests his breath
ing apparatus while the rubber mas
sages the kinks out of ifttmk's under
pinning. Luncheon over, Moran lolls
about his quarters an hour before go
ing to the woodpile. There, armed
with a regulation forester's as, the
red-head proceeds to make tooth
picks out of Giant trees. When the
ax-wielding become monotonous
Prank goes for something else.
Friendly wrestling matches with his
trainers otten enliven the program.
As a fireman on one of the sea-going
battleships years ago Moran learned
the fine points of shovelling. He
hasn't forgotten how, either, and the
way he clears paths for the neighbors
at Saranac lake after a heavy snow
fall is the talk of the town.
Moran proposes to stick to the open
air training until ten days before he
is summoned to the ring. The last
stretch of conditioning will be done
in New York, where Moran is a great
favorite, by virtue of hte two jig
time conquests of Jim Coffey, the
Dublin Giant
A yarn from New York has it that
Joe Wood, champion speed ball pitch
er of the Boston Red Sox for several
seasons, is due for release and will be
disposed of in the near future. This
report can be taken with a grain of
salt until it is actually pulled off, for
Wood showed some signs of return
ing to form last year. Wood will not
be allowed to get out of the major
leagues.
He has had trouble at various times
with the Boston management and
once became much disgruntled. This
may have something to do with the
determination to get rid of him, if
there is such an intention. Manager
Carrigan is well fortified with boxmen
and can get along without Wood in
the interest of harmony.

Add to the file of grand old sport
ing men the name of Jack Moakley.
He has just signed to coach Cornell
track athletes ten years longer. Like
Geers, of the harness realm, the vet
eran Moakley, who recently celebrat
ed hi3 52d birthday, seems destined to
enjoy perpetual youth. Of his 35
years as runner and track tactician
17 have been spent at the post he now
fills.
' Moakley first gained prominence in
Boston where for 12 years he was in
active competition.
Coached by Moakley. Cornell in
3,905 won' the inter-collegiate title.
Under his teaching the Ithacans have
since added five more victories. Two
years ago Cornell captured the L C.
A. A. silver cup which had been com
peted for during 11 years. Last sea
son his team took the first leg of a
new cup.

OH, EMMET!
Emmet Block, the bachelor thresh
erman, has been looking unusually
handsome for the last few weeks in

something is going to happen to Em
met when the wheat is threshed.
