his feat being regarded as marvelous.

fe " FIGHT DOPE
ML By Hardy K Downing,
7EK few bouts of any prut lin-
portance have been staged the
I past month as I he promoters have
'learned that the holiday season is not
: a good time to stage high priced at
tractions and th- champions are none
too keen for encounters during that
time, a they realize they will draw
1 more money In tho gate at any other
! time and as n consequence prefer to
! rest up a little at this time of tho
' year nd let the little fellows get some
I... only championship bout staged
i in the east the past month was the
I Joe Lynch -Mtdxct Smith encounter for
1 tho bantamweight title, which Lynch
.maintained although the Midget guv
i him a pretty good run for the money.
Probably another reason why no
I championship bouts have been sign"-. I
I up for New York Is the uncertainly
' about the New York boxing commiv
I slon after the first of the year. Rumor
I still has it that Chairman William
j Muldoon la slated for the ax and If
' he Is removed the man who takes his
I place will be expected to remove the
ban on saveral of the champions who
have been barred by Muldoon for fail
ure to defend their titles when called
upon to do so by the commission or
other infractions and as a consequence

waiting to see Just what Is going to
MYERS TO INVADE EAST.
The continued success of Lou
Paluso in the east has probably eil
Spug Myers to believe that he Is losing
time and money by remaining In this
nbek of the woods and a report from
Pocatello th'- other day stated that
he was going east Immediately after
his bout with Al Piddle. whh h is
slated for Pocatello on January sec
ond, but he will probably take part
Jn at bust one more bout in his home
town before departing for th" Hre.i,
White way and Eddie Handley of San
Francisco will more than likely be nis
Handley was brought to Pocatello a
little morn than a year ago to meet
Myers, and although ho was Just a
youngster in mo game n Have inu
Pocatello boy tho toughest twclve
roun battle ho ever had there and
many of tho fans have been Insisting
upon Promoter Stoneclpher bringing
him back lor a return match and 1
tirts are now being made to OCUrs
Handley's services. If Handley bas
Improved during tbe past year, whlc 1
he more than likily has, for ho hal
only had about one year's ring ex
perience when he met Myers the othor
tlfne. he should give Myers a mighty
tough battle. Of course all these plans
hinge on the outcome of the bout
between Myers and Uiddle next TUSS
; day night and although Myers i ex
pected to win. Uiddle Is reputed to
be a mighty tough boy with a terrific
wallop and might upset the beans.
Probably the longest and greatest
"All Star" boxing cards to be pre
sented in this part of the country In
many years will be hefd in the Al
hambra theatre In Ogden January 5,
during the Stock Growers' convention
and which Is being sponsored by the
Ogden Chamber of Commerce.
The entertainment will consist of
40 rounds of boxing. In which three
state championships will be at stake
In bOUtS of ten rounds each.
rranklfl Darren, of Logan, and
w elterweight champion of I 'tab. will
bo called upon to defend his till -against
Joe Black of Denver In one
of the 1Q. round feature bouts, while
Ed Shopard will make a dotormln 1
effort to regain his middleweight
crown In a 10-round battle with
Mickey Bockaon ol Eolse, Idaho, who
bas recently jumped to tht lop rung
of the middleweights.
I Midget Smith, of Mldvale, feather-
weight kingpin of the lntermounta n
country, will also have a battle on his
hands to maintain his place at tho
top of tho heap when ho meets Kid
Duvlo. former featherweight cham
pion, and one of the classiest an 1
crafltlest little fellows that ever
stepped Into a L'tah ring. In the oth r
feature even! With a good six-round
preliminary and a four-round ccrtalu
ralscr to round out the card It looks
as thouglF the Ogden Chamber of
Commerce will give the visiting ex
hibitors and their friends something
to talk about when they go back
KEEN iKD HERE.
The fans of Salt Lake arc taking
1 a mighty keen Interest In tho outcome
of the six-round bout tomorrow nlgnt
j at the Hippodrome theatre between
Herman Auerbach and Frankle Buf-
flngton. While neither of these bovs
are champions as yet they are two
of the most promising youngsters de
veloped here the past year and It will
be a case of one climbing tnrther up
the ladder and the other one shove J
down u little.
In their first meeting a couple of
1 months ago the verdict was awarded
to Auerbach by the writer, who was
the referee, and while I still maintain
I the decision was earned there la DO
denying tho fact that It did not mo;t
with the approval of many of the
' funs and they did not hesitate to voire
I their disapproval and they have been
I re-matched In hopes of one or the
other winning decisively enough so
that there will be no question which
, is the best boy.

11 great Impressions, perhaps the
greatest impression, which the writer
received at the recent convention In
I this city of the National Collegiate
Ithletlo association was tho serious
'demeanor of all the delegates. They
.were a- men who believe they were
custodians of a sacred trust. The Idea
that they were representatives merely
of a system of play or diversion did
not enter Into their minds, apparently.
They accepted their guardianship of
intercollegiate sport as a duty Involv
ing serious responsibilities. At least
Ithls was the Impression the writer
taught . And he feels certain that h

I No close student of tho trends of
youth and the various manifestations
of our nutlonnl growth lias any idea

legiate sport system has attained sig
nificance beyond the realm of athletics.
It Is not only playing a valuable part
In our social system, but Is accepted
as going hand In hand with our pro
icisscs of general education.
The character of tho men who par-,
ticlpated In tho recent convention
1 should give assurance to all who have
'teen wondering whether Intercolle
giate athletics are being carried too
far. Each of tho nine districts was
represented by a professor of stand
ing, while technical subjocts were
handled bv roaches and physical di
rectors of stature such as St. John of
ohio State; Heylan of Columbia Brred
Luehrlng of Minnesota. Keycroft of
Princeton and other men whose names
are synonymous with clean and selen
1 porl and Idealistic tendencies'. No
one could have attended the sessions
of this recent convention and not car
ried away an Increased respect fr
amateur sport and the part it is play
ing m the upbuilding of tho nation.

'Eight Major Grid'
Eight major football teams escaped

I Not all of them won all the games
played, but all escaped defeat. Bai -oral
tlo games resulted.
The undefeated football teams of
1922 are California, Vanderbllt, Mich
igan, Iowa. Cornell, West Virginia,
Princeton and the Army
University of California heads the
jllst of undefeated teams. Tho Bears
j havo played consecutive games
.without suffering a defeat
Included In tho long list of vic
tories Is only ono tie game tho
scoreless affair with W. & J., played
January 2, 1922.
Date in 1919 Washington univer
sity beat California 7 to 0. Since
that game, not a defeat has been suf
fered, the winning streak extending
over three full seasons and part of
Vanderbllt has played 19 straignt
games since last defeated. Three of
the games resulted in ties.
Iowa has played and won 17 straight
games slnco last going down to de
feat. Cornell ranks next with 16 straight
wins to Its credit.
