who greeted him with an invitation to
SO out to a ball game.

for photographers. Jeffries put in an
appearance clad in violet trunks. He
was bare bodied and bare limbed and
as swarthy as an Indian, he chewed gum
and tried to look unconcerned as the j
crowd applauded. It was evident that
he would have been more at home if
the spectators had been confined to
the -members of his training staff.
First of all, the big fellow used a

himself open and Joe got in a few light

Choynsky. While boxing with his
brother, Jim was almost entirely on
the defensive. In the second round Jim
rushed repeatedly to close quarters but
did not leeap out when he got there. He
swung Jack around considerable and
gave evidence of the immense bodily
strength he possesses, but he was never
rough. At one time he looked as if
Jack had become slightly nettled at his
inability to land.
Sam Berger then boxed two rattling
rounds. Berger stood right to his work
