NEW YORK, March C "One-round"
Hogan's poor showing In his tcn-iouud
encounter with Packey Mc Par I mid Inst
night was a matter of much gossip
today anions the hundreds or fans Mho
witnessed his disappointing cxhlblt'on.
Many held that Hogan was afraid to
mix matters with the stock yaids
champion, while others were of the
opinion that he was bewildered by the
wonderful footwork of his opponent.
Yesterday Hogan announced that he

start, but he evidently chanced his
mind the minute he (Merer! the ling
Mo failed to land more than ton good
punches and contented himself with
covering up and trying to evade pun
ishment In nearly every round.
No boxer that Packey has met re
cently was as cas for him to solve
as Hogan. The Chicagoan landed al
most at will, and many believed In

the end of the bout had ho been no

fornlan was dazed and reeling, but
Packey evidently did not cam to win
by the sleep loute, knockouts being
frowned upon here as tending to dis
credit the game.

The Washington Motor Car Corpora
tion will b? represented In the leading
track events this season by two racing
carB. The four-cylinder model will bo
driven by W. D. Arrlaon, while II. O.
Carter will pilot tho slx-cy Under racer.
"The thrills and sensations of driving
a racing automobile seventy-live or
eighty miles an hour no longer Interest
me," says Harry Cobe, tho famous pilot.
In discussing tho 1912 racing season, "i
am through with the game for good, and
unless some maker foolishly offers me
an unheard-of price to drive his car in
a race I will never start In another con
test. "Nowhere in the world of sport does u
man's nerve, his endurance, hla confi
dence, count for so much as In automo
bile racing. Tho strain of a steeple,
(base Is nothing compared to that of a
man riding at the speed of an express
train In a light and specially built auto
mobile, where the slightest miscue
means death to hlmbelf and possibly to
a hundred spectators. This Is tho exact
situation a man driving In a race must
face every time he crosses the tape at
the signal of the starter's gun.
"The racing situation has become so
commercialized that today It affords
very littlo reward to the man who
places any value on his life. In the flibt
place, manufacturers engaged In auto
mobile racing have been besieged bv
applicants to drive their cars In spetd
contests. Jlost of the applicants ar?
factory men or chauffeurs, or, In anv
event, they are men Inexperienced in
the handling of a racing machine. The
result has been that half the men en
gaged In racing are risking their lives
for practically a song. Not for me. 1
have been in tho spotlight when Its re
flection meant money and glory; but as
the slftatlon Is today. It la all glory and
no money, and that ar.gla does not ap
peal to me."
A' statement like this, coming as It
doe? from a man who has passed
through all the rough spots of the game,
has considerable significance, for Cobe
has made his reputation as one of thn
best and headiest racing drivers that
ever started In a contest. His with
drawal from racing will no doubt be
received with surplrso by lovers of the

continued driving until the spring of
