\ glance at the entry list shows
,h‘ere will be more action in the 135
' „ anti novice divisions, the 126

'jer . , . 'hll of which should be to
liking of fistic ■ fans. Generally

llutie boys of fairly good size, than
thee is in the heavier weights.
The open welterweight has the
fewest entries of any class but
Ihe-e is a possibility Red Beard, col

of Lumberton, and Tiny Taylor, of
Carrboro, reputedly the possessor of
dynamite in either mitt . . . have
already entered the lists officially
and it is anticipated there will be
three more to enter before weigh

lads do sign on the dotted line the
division will have more entrants
than ever before in GG history here.
Daily the mail is bringing the GG
cummittee in more and more offi

there is the usual last minute rush
of entrants the GG committee is go
ing to find it difficult to get all the

Meanwhile the Senior Fraternity

an unusually fine reception for the

TEN BALLPLAYERS
GET UCC BENEFITS
One, Whose Salary Is Be
tween $8,000 And $9,000,
Is Among Them
JEFFERSON CITY, JIo., Jan. 27
—(iP)—Ten. professional baseball
players—some of them major leag
uers—are collecting unemployment
insurance in Missouri, state records
disclosed today.
Several players from the roster*
of the St. Louis American league and
Kansas City American association
clubs have been admitted to the
rolls.
A member of the St. Louis
Browns, whose salary is between
$8,000 and $9,000 for the baseball
season, is among them.
Identy Hidden
William O. DeWitt, vice-president
and general manager of the Browns,
declined to identify his players col
lecting benefits.
"I tried my best to stop them,”
DeWitt said, "but was unable to do
so. And one of them is receiving a
salary from us of between $S,000 and
to nnn ”
Roy Harney, secretary of the
Kansas City club, a New York
Yankee farm, expressed indignation
that six of his players have applied
for the payments.
“Not only is it shameful, I think
it is illegal,’’ he said.
“Our contract reads that the play
er ia employed by us from March
1 to March 1 although they are paid
only during the playing season.”
Harney asserted the club manage
ment has protested with the com
mission against allowing the claims.
He said the six applicants includ
ed: AI Piechota, a pitcher soid to
the Boston Nationals, Clyde McCul
lough, a catcher now with the Chi
cago Cubs and William Matheson,
outfielder recalled by the New York
Y'ankees.
The players collect the maximum
of $15 a week as long as they are
idle—up to,a maximum of 12 weeks.
But if the employment service finds
them a job they’ll have "to take it or
get off the rolls.
Their right to benefits during the
off season was upheld in a ruling
by former Attorney Generla E. C
Crow, now a member of the state
unemployment compensation com
mission.
"It doesn’t seem right to me thal
ball players—some of whom make
more in a few months than a com
mon working man does in a year—
should be given job insurance', bul
under the law there’s nothing we
can do but give it to them if they
qualify,” said Andrew J. Murphy
the commission chairman.

Edmund McLaurin
Walk down the firing line at any
important smallbore rifle match and
you will invariably find almost as
many different brands of .22 cali
ber ammunition represented as there
are competitors, and it is, therefore,
not surprising that a newcomer to
the shooting game, in possession ot
a new target rifle of the latest de
sign, and seeking the shortest road
to success in the sport, will even
tually ask of the expert, “what is
the best ammunition for competi
tive shooting?”
Unless the expert is approached
during an idle moment, or is natu
rally a helpful soul, interested in
seeing his fellow-man develop into
a good shot, the chances are good
that he will answer the question by
simply recommending the particular
brand of ammunition of his own
choice and use.
Variety Of Results
It so happens, however, that a
certain brand of .22 caliber ammu
nition which performs brilliantly in
one make of target rifle may give
erratic results when fired from oth
er rifles of known accuracy. In
fact, two guns of the same manu
facture end consecutive serial num
ber, made on a single machine and
under identical conditions, will pos
sibly give altogether different de
grees of accuracy when tested with
one particular brand of ammuni
tion. Briefly, you cannot tell which
make of ammunition will shoot best
in your rifle until you have tested
several of the leading brands by
firing at least 50 test shots of each
brand from either the prone posi
tion or from a sandbag or bench
rest. When you have found a par
ticular cartridge which gives uni
form accuracy in your rifle, then
stick to that make of cartridge as
the chances are good that you have
the right combination of rifle and
ammunition, and that your future
success is merely a matter jof meas
uring up to the possibilities of your
equipment.
Regardless of manufacture, the
proper cartridge for the .22 caliber,
rim-fire, target rifle is the .22 cali
ber long rifle cartridge, which can
be had in a variety of velocities and
priming mixtures. From a ballistic
standpoint, the .22 long rifle cart
ridge is a 40 grain lead bullet with
an average muzzle velocity in the
neighborhood of 1,100 feet per sec
ond in the low-speed variety, and
1,400 feet per second in the high
speed loads. When the rifle barrel
is elevated to an angle of approxi
mately 30 degrees, the extreme range
of the .22 long rifle cartridge is
about 1,400 yards for the regular
velocity loads and about 1,600 yards
for the high speed combinations. At
such ranges it is fully capable of
inflicting serious damage in spite
of the fact that it has lost consid
erable velocity during its flight.
Last year, according to figures
furnished me by the Sporting Arms
& Manufacturers’ institute, of New
York, which compiles such statis
tics, four and one-half billion as
sorted .22 caliber cartridges alone,
were sold by alb^combined brands
on tlio market! Such popularity has
brought about many new competi
tive developments by the various
manufacturers, and today the best
of the .22 caliber ammunition of the
low-speed, lubricated variety, can be
reasonably expected to make one
inch groups at 100 yards, and some
of it will do better than that un
der ideal conditions.
First developed by the J. Stevens
Arms company, and subsequently
marketed for the first time by the
Peters Cartridge company, the pres
ent day .22 caliber long rifle cart
ridge is far removed from the old
type, highly corrosive rim-fire am
munition of years ago. Not only is
the 1040 cartridge far more accu
rate, but the old-style primer, with
its ground glass content—a most
destructive agent—has been replac
ed with a modern, non-mecuric prim
er which now deposits a residue in
the rifle barrel that is actually good
protection against corrosion. Conse
quently, the average life of an un
cleaned rifle barrel, when one par
ticular brand of modern ammuni
tion is used exclusively, has been
given an unbelievable life span
against an average life in the old
days of 1,000 to 1,000 rounds. Rem
ington, one of the leading manu
facturers of sporting arms and am
munition, once made a most inter
esting test of the protective as well
as wearing qualities of modern am
munition by selecting a .22 caliber
rifle from its general stock and
then proceeding to pour the equiva
lent of nine miles of late issue lu
bricated, low-speed ammunition
through the barrel of said rifle with
amazing results; so unusual, in fact,
that I am sending a copy of this
article to Frank Kahre, former edi
tor of the American Rifleman and
now shooting promotion manager for
the Remington outfit, with the re
quest that he kindly furnish me
with some accurate figures on the
test, which facts I will pass on to
my readers as soon as received.
While most .22 caliber rifles cham
bered for the .22 long rifle cart
ridge will also handle the .22 short
and the .22 long varieties, the accu
racy of the two latter sizes will not
compare with that of the long rifle.
If used in a rifle chambered for
the long rifle cartridge, both the
.22 short and tile .22 long will first
be forced to jump, across the re
maining smooth portion of the cham
ber before taking the rifling at the
time the shot is fired. On the other
hand, the .22 long rifle ■ cartridge
fills the smooth chamber entirely,
and, when fired, immediately takes
the rifling without any objection
able jump between chamber arid
rifling. Consequently, the serious
marksman will use only the .22 long
rifle cartridge, and that preferably
in the low velocity or semi-high
speed varieties.

Tabernacle And Calvary Con
tinue To Race Through
Second Half Schedule
Tabernacle and Calvary continued
to race through the second half
schedule of the Friday Intermediate
Church School basketball league
undefeated by trimming their op
ponents on the “Y” court Friday
night.
Tabernacle doubled the score in
taking Fifth Avenue for a 32-16
ride while Calvary, meeting stern
opposition from St. Andrews’ boys,
triumphed by 22-8. Meanwhile,
Southside hopped on the rejuvenat
ed Immanuel quintet for a 40-16
decision.
Although the Immanuel team
showed a surprising spirit and put
up an unusually good game, the
sharpshooting of Olipliant and
company piled up the largest score
of the evening. The losers must bo
given credit for a scrappy perform
ance but in size and polish were
no match for the Southsiders. Oli
phant alone tallied 24 points, while
Parker was high for Immanuel with
S.
Fifth Avenue also put up a good
fight against Tabernacle’s first half
champions, holding them to one of
their smallest scores of the year.
The Methodists never seriously
threatened Tabernacle’s record but
made them fight for every point.
Evans' 14 points led the scoring
with Bell of Fifth Avenue in the
runner-up position at 10. Markiton
got eight for the winners.
St. Andrew’s played its best
defensive game of the year against
Calvary’s vaunted eagers. Boasting
one of the largest teams in the
loop, the Presbyterians used their
height to good advantage in taking
the bail off the board and. with a
little better marksmanship could
have made an excellent game of it.
As it was, Calvary’s superior floor
work and shooting gave them a
comparatively safe lead throughout.
L. McKoy got eight points to bet
ter Mathis’ seven for St. Andrew’s.

The Columbus lads defeated the
Wildcats last year in two matches

Coach Howard McDonald has been

hopes to show off some of his lads
who have been training all year for
