second formation. On the first play
the left tackle comes around on the
signal, takes the ball from the quar
ter and bucks through tackle. The
backs, 3, 3, and 4, move from their
positions to the right side of the line,
as shown in diagram 2. As soon as
the tackle is downed he lines up
over the ball as a center and without
a new signal passes the ball back to
No. 1, who shoots it as indicated to
No. 4.
If worked properly this play will
take the opposing team entirely, by
surprise. The play should be start
ed before they have a chance to line
up for defense.
Battling Levinsky upset all dope in
Boston last night when he decisively
whipped Jack Dillon and took the
title of light heavyweight champion.
The Hoosier was good for five rounds
and did some execution with a vigor
ous right, but thereafter it was all
ihe New Yorker. Levinsky circled
his opponent, delivered punch after
punch, and went away without a re
turn worth noticing.
At times Dillon seemed to be tak
ing a boxing lesson, some of his well
intended punches going ridiculously
wild. There was not a single kick
when the referee awarded the deci
sion to Levinsky.
Young Ahearn of New York and
Len Rowlands of Milwaukee fought
ten rounds to a draw in the Cream
city. Ahearn was in the lead until
the seventh, when the Milwaukee
man steamed out and evened mat
ters. The fight was not as classy as
wind-up affairs should be. In an
other bout of the show Frankie Cal
lahan beat Matty McCue in ten
rounds. I

WHY I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR
PRESIDENT WILSON
By Mrs. Felix Adler
(Wife of Lecturer, Writer, Founder
of Society for Ethical Culture.)
I am for Woodrow Wilsqn because
he has kept the nation out of war
with honor, because he has shown
forbearance and generosity toward
a weaker state Mexico and has
saved our young men from a bar
barous war with a backward foe, be
cause he has carried out in spite of
powerful opposition the most pro
gressive social legislation that any of
our presidents has accomplished, the
freeing of our workingmen from
wage slavery and the freeing from
economic slavery of the nation's chil
dren. He has put laws on the stat
ute books that are an honor to the
nation in spite of the pressure of
special privilege.
