The boys, both in the r.ri-ne of con

10:30 and cheer after cheer rent the
air. Mandot was first to appear, ac
companied by his brother. Harry Cole
man, his manager, and "Hobo" Dough

crowd went, wild when the little
southerner climbed into the ring and
the cheering hardly quieted down
when Woleast wa lifted into the ring

Mundot at times seemed the better j
man, even though he didn't land the

a vicious left, which time and again'
stung the champion when they came
out of a clinch. Most of his blows,
however, lacked steam, for they did

to spur him on to greater effort. 1

It's a tale of the Civil war and is per
fectly acted. It is in the hands of
seusoned players and the dialogue
sparkles with homely witticisms. The
scene is the home of a woman widow
eel by the war, her husband having
gone as a substitute for another by
v horn he was paid to take the hazards
of battle. The latter seeks the hand
of the widow, but he loses aim the
old friend of the departed, who had
none the cnores and cheered the
widow .lining her lonesome days, wins
out. despite that he is the poorer of
the two. The College City quartet is I
to land with his old-time ability ex
, cept in clinches. He had much the
j better of this sort of milling.
At the Mart it was sc. n that the en
counter was to be a slam bang affair,
for the two immediately started baii
' ir.g away. The first three rounds were
, even and Wolgast finished round four
; with a slight, shade, due to his afcil
j it y to box in clinc hes. The sixth
I round also was in favor of the cham-
p:on. while Mandot regained some of
I his lost confidence in the sixth and
lit hi Wolg ist to a draw,

Wi.h new born confidence he started
the eighth round with a rush, and
aain shaded his rival, his speed
dazzling the title holder. Again in the
rinth the New Orleans boy landed a
number of telling blows on Wolgast's
body and at. the close of the round
Ad was swinging wild, while Mandot
danced away from the conquerer of
Nelson and bothered his man with a
number of jabs to the face, varying
ith a left to the body.
At the end of the tenth round when
the newspaper poll was in favor of
Mandot the crowd gave a 10-miuute
demonstration, while the local boy
was being carried out of ths ring on
the shoulders of his admirers. Neutral
c-ritiiH at the ringside decided that the
battle was a good draw.

IIE LEADS INDIANS
TO MANY VICTORIES
Jim Thorpe, the wondeful Indian,
who carried off the highest honors at
the Olympic games this summer, is
hading the Carlisle Indians to many
gridiron victories this fall. The In
dians have beaten every team they've
played by big scores. They are be
! lieved to be stronger than Yost's
Wolverines, for they defeated Syra
cuse, which team won a decisive vic
tory over Michigan.
Mr. Brady established this
precedent at the Princess during the
run of "Bunty Pulls the Strings" last
s ason. and 'he Plan worked out w ith
sut'h excellent results that
he is fol
lowing suit with "Bought and Paid
For." The Thursday matinee is be
ing received with favor in Chicago,
as the large audiences at "Bought
and Paid For" testify. The company
has been highly praised for its fine
acting by the Chicago dramatic crit
ics. It came to Chicago seasoned
by participation in 171 performances
of the all-season run of the play in
New York. Among the principals are
Frank Mills, Kathlene Mc Donnell, Frank
Craven and Helen Lackaye. Frank
Craven has scored the comedy hit of
the Chicago season with his charac
terization of Jimmy Gilley, the am
bitious shipping clerk.
"THE GIRL AT THE GATE."
A re-review or "second notice" of
"The Girl at the Gate." the current
hit in the La Salle opera house, by
the Chicago newspapers results in
an unanimous verdict to the effect
that the new piece is "the best of 'era
tall," meaning thereby that it sur
passes in play, music, cast and pro
duction all of its many predecessors
in the way of musical comedy in this
intimate, cozy little theatre, with its
policy of c'.ean fun and fresh, whist
ley music. Manager Askin has placed
seats on sale this early for Thanks-

"Louisiana Lou" in this respect; and
the Tuesday and Thursday afternoon

The Moline West Ends who are to I

Sunday at Island City park, while pos
sibly not as good as their predecessors
of the same name, are nevertheless a '
good team, at least on paper. Mana
ger C. E. Hallgren has lined up a'
goodly bunch of players and they have :
been working quietly but steadily for i
three weeks past under the direction j
of "Ud" Johnson, fullback on the West '
Ends for many years and an unusually
good player. The new West Ends'
average close to 170 pounds to the i
man and all are experienced players. ;
They will be able to give the local,
segregation a run for the money.
