Peanuts Schieberl of Rock Island
and Andy Dans of Monmouti fought
10 fast rounds at the Empire theatre
last eight before a crowd of 00 en
thusiastic fans and the Maple City lad
earned a slight shade. Although, the
hoys traveled at top epeenl all through,
the mill, the affair developed into a
wrestling match after the fifth round,
which was largely Dans fault. Pea
nuts outpointed his opponent witn
lone range jabs, while Andy had the
better in the inflghtinic.
The Monnwuth lad is considerably
stockier than Schieberl and used his
superior strength to wear Peanuts
down in the clinches and succeeded
in this respect. Peanuts staged the
bout to give his local followers a scien
tific exhibition, but Dans would not
permit this, resorting to the clinches,
where he obtained an advantage in the
infighting. Dans ued a wicked lef'.

I'ntil the eighth round Peanuts held
a slight shade, getting in more clean
blows than Andy, but Schieberl seem

10th round hung onto Dans, thoroughly
tired out. Peanuts drew the first
blood from Dans in tile third round
with a hefty blow to the mouth, and
Andy drew blood from Peanuts in the
fifth with a wicked uppercut. cutting
Peanuts just above the eye. Peanuts
again drew blood from Dans in he
seventh round, cutting his forehead
with a swift left.

one of the New York National league
club's trio of leading pitchers, has
signed a contract to pitch for the
Brooklyn Federal league baseball club,
according to an announcement made
by President Robert B. Ward of the
Ward stated that Marquard had
signed the Brooklyn Federal contract
in triplicate, in addition to making an
affidavit that he was a free agent in
a baseball sense, and had received and
receipted for an advance payment un

Sec retary John P. Foster of the New

tracts, which covered his playing ser
vices for 1 i 1 5 and li)l and gave the
New York club an option on his ser
vices in 1017. Still another contract
gave the New York club special rights
in regard to Marquard's playfjig ser

of covering any loopholes which might

Takes a Great Deal of
Football Upset at Penn.
Philadelphia. Pa.. Dec. 5. The usual
action of the majority of the Univers
ity of Pennsylvania football players in
voting against the retention of George
H. Brooke as head coach next year and
the stand taken by nearly all of the
freshmen team in expressing their
"utmost confidence" in him. have com
plicated the athletic situation at the
university to such an extent that no
one will venture a prediction as to
what Is in store for the football squad
St- Louis. Mo., Dec. 5. Charley
White of Chicago last night met and
defeated Frankie Callahan, the much
touted Brooklyn lightweight, in a bat
tle over the eight round route. Inci
dentally the Chicago boy gained con
siderable revenge for the White family
for the beating that Callahan handed
out to his brother Jack at Memphis
several days ago.
The boys went a fast pace for the
entire route, but there was not a sin
gle round that might be given to Cal
lahan. In every session White was
after his man and he landed the most
blows. White's blows also carried
more force behind them than those
landed by Callahan.
The only credit that could be given
the Brooklyn boy was earned for
gameness. He took all that White
sent and always stood up to the work
in front of him. Callahan was out
boxed and outfought, and it could be
seen after the bout was only a couple
of rounds old that White would be the
Callahan tried many times to land
a knockout punch, but he was wild and
several times missed by wide mar
gins. White May Fight Shugrue.
St. Louis. Mo.. Dec. 5. A fight be
tween "Young" Shugrue and Charley
White probably will be arranged for
the middle of December in New York.
Nate Lewis. White's manager, has re

Cincinnati. Dec. 5. That Walter
Johnson, the Washington American
pitcher who Jumped to the Chicago
Federals, will never play a game in a
Federal league uniform was the opin
ion expressed yesterday by Chairman
Garry Herrmann of the national commission.
rrom Hermanns talk It appears
hardly likely that the commission will
take a hand in the Johnson matter.
"It is a matter for the American
league to handle," said Hermann. "I
feel confident, however, that the
courts will prevent Johnson from car
rying out his contract with the Federals."
