London, Jan. 12—(By A. P.)—
Georges Carpenticr, heavyweight
champion boxer of Europe won his
mutch here tonight against George
Cook, the Australian heavyweight.
He knocked Cook out in the fourth

right to the jaw floored Cook for the
W)urt. Ife was up on one knee when
the referee, Jack Smith finished the
count. He was up on one knee when
Tl'.e weights were announced as
Cook ISO pounds and Carpenticr 170
In the opening round Carpenticr
was the first to lead, scoring with
both his left and right without a re
turn. Cook tried lor a right swing,
but missed. Considerable in-fight fol
lowed in which neither man had any
marked advantage. Cook took a
nasty blow on the ribs, hut himself
scored well toward the close of the
Both men sparred cautiously at
the beginning of the second round.
Carpenticr landed a left hook to the
Jaw and easily evaded un attempt at
a counter. The Australian had the
better of the in-fighting which en
sued and twice sent home hard lefts
which surprised Carpentier, who
continually failed to find openings for
his right.
In the third Carp, landed a light
left to the chin, but at close quar
ters Cook fought hard. Carpentier’s
best work seemed to be at long
range. Near the end of the round
the Frenchman scored well with
lefts and rights to the head and
body, and it was easily his round.
The Australian caught Carpentier
with a blow to the jaw after the bell
had sounded and was cuutloncd by
the referee.
Early in the fourth round the
fighting was mostly at close quarters.
Carpentier twice landed lefts to the
head and Cook scored to the chin.
The Australian then rushed Carpen
tier but only to meet with a straight
left to the jaw and two rights to the
same place, which ended the bout.

Over Forty Hebron
Boys Out For Track
Hebron, .Mo., Jan. 12—(Special)—
The opening of tho track season at
Hebron has brought to light several
new men who have possibilities of
making good athletes. Wednesday
afternoon Coach Charley Dwyer held
the first trials in the cage of the
Cook Gymnasium. Ail the candidates
(or the relay team were put through
fast practice. The first- tryouts for
the running broad jump revealed at
least ono new man who has the mak
ings of a good broad jumper, Jimmy
! Cotter of New Haven. He was sub
I stitute half back on last fall’s cham
F pionship football team where several
j touchdowns were due to his speed.
| Although Cotter lias never broad
J jumped in any meet, lie shows good
form and with due coaching lie ought
i to be worthy to represent Hebron.
Tho interest that Hebron men are
taking in the. track this year seems
to be increasing. When tho call was
sounded by Coacli Dwyer only a week
ago, there were only 3<i mf*Tb out.
Tills number lias now increased un
til the number is well above 40.
The boys are training hard and will
attempt to go to Bowdoin on March
4 in the best possible physical condi
tion. They will probably have to go
up against Exeter and Huntington
as well as the Maine schools
In a speech before all the boys of
Hebron Wednesday night. Headmas
ter Howlctt spoke of athletics at
Hebron and expressed tho wish that
iliey might always have a prominent
place in the life of the school.

tlon. It consists of aU recently pub
lished books, each of which has some
special quality of value and Interest.
The “Biography of Queen Victoria"
by Lytton Stretchy stands high
among the publications of the past
year, reviewers asserting that It is
the best biography in the English
language. It Is an expensive hook
and library Is fortunate In acquiring
it. Another valuable work Is "Father
Duffy's Story." A tale of humor and
heroism, of Ilfs and death, with the
Fighting Sixty-ninth and other unite
o fthe Rainbow Division. Someono
has said: “This living record of
‘gray days and gold' will be read and
remembered wherever courageous
youth is known and loved.” "Won
ders of War in the Air.” by Francis
Roife-Wheeler is a realistic story of
the “Fighters of the Air" with «2
illustration* from war photographs
and sketched. It is a book that will
interest men as well as boys. Mr.
and Mrs. Stott recognised the rlslms
of the younger readers, completing
their gift with the Thornton Burgess
“Wishing-Stone Series" In three vol
umes; ‘Tommy and the Wiahlng
Stone.” “Tommy’s Wishes Come
True,” “Tommy’s Change of Heart.”
These books have many colored pic
tures and are among the most attrac
tive of the stories by the children’s
favorite author.
Many valuable additions were
made to the library during Decem
ber; Miss Clarissa Wheeler pur
chased expressly as a Christmas
present to the Oakland Public Libra
ry one of the most attractive and in
teresting of the 1921 books for girls
entitled “Then Came Caroline,” by i
Lila Richards Howe. This- Is a !
kindness that will glvs pleasure to
many girls front 12 to 16 years.
Lawrence Leavitt hae also shown
generous thought of others In giving
three of the Thorton Burgess “Bed
time Stories,” of which the children j
never tire. "Adventures of Reddy
Fox,” “Chatterer, the Squirrel,” i
"Jerry Muskrat.” A new Story of
California, “The Pride of Palomar,”
by Peter Kyne, has been received
from Mrs. Lester Andrews. It |
touches upon the Japanese peril and
ranks high among recent fiction. ;
Mrs. Guy Buleier gave a new copy j
of Bertram Sinclair’s popular story,
"Big Timber.” Miss Marlon Brown I
has again remembered the library
with an interesting book. “Richard
Chatterec,” by Ruby Ayres. From ;
the same good friend who in No- i
vetnber gave 610 to the librarian to ;
use for children's books, has come
another present, “Sister Sue," by
Eleanor Porter, and “Old Rose and j
Sliver,” by Myrtle Reed. Mr*. An
drew Knox, who has in the past
given many desirablo books to the
library, has shown her continued in
terest by the gift of 12 volumes.
These are books that Mrs. Knox
has read and desires to pass on to !
to other readers. They are all In ;
pood condition and are ny wen
known authors such ns Zane Grey.
Joseph Lincoln, Grace Richmond,
John Fox, Jr.. Bertrand Sinclair, etc.
A charming little book for children
from five to seven has been con
tributed by Mrs. Frank L. Given.
It Is “Bobby and the Big Road," by
Maud Lindsey, and tells how Bobby
and his father follow the “Big Road"
that leads to ft delightful acquaint
ance with Nature and to very pleas
ant friendships. These gifts to the
Oakland Public Library are warm
ly appreciated and gratefully ac
knowledged by the librarian.

being exerted by the papers in ths
several counties, counted for as much
as it docs today and there are very
few of you gentlemen present today
who realize the power to mould public
opinion that is within your grasp.
During the unofficial meetings of the
Press Congress of the World, which
I attended, It was discovered that the
papers which exerted the most In
fluence In any community wera not
ilm “big" dallies, so called with ths
circulations mounting into the thous
ands that wars moulding publls Opin
ion, but the smaller ones in cities of
25 to 50 thousands, whose editors were
known personally to the great ma
jority of its readers that wars ths
power of the communities, rather
than the huge papers like the New
York Times, the Chicago Tribune and
others of a like nature. These larger
papers are read more for the "news"
than for any Interest that tha reader
might have in knowing or caring,
what the editor might think person
all v, for the most of the large dalllea
referred to etbove are conducted by
corporations Which are organised
more for the purposes of giving fair
returns to ita stockholder! than for
any personal interest in the psople
or the towns and cttles In Which they
circulate and what is true of the
smaller dallies la squally a# true of
the weeklies for they held the same
relative position to the peoplp where
they circulate. The large dailies are
doing#perhaps more for their sub
scribers than the smaller papers are,
but the personal element is missing
and that perhaps Is one of the rea
sons why the representation of the
larger papers at the prese congress
was not aa large as ef tbs smaller
papers. The representation di pagan

Never before has the financial con
dition of the editors and printers
been as good as during the pnst year,
for all those who survived the hard
ships Incident to the war, have com*
to realise that the printer whether ha
be one producing Job work or pub
lishing a newspaper Is entitled to a
profit of his labor and material Just
the same as a grocer, clothlor or any
other merchant and It la only when
a man in the printing business com
mences to learn something of big
overhead costs and the percentage of
productive time, in relation to his
chargeable time, that be will com
mence to see that in order to live and
pay his bills be must take In more
money than he pays out. This condi
tion can only be brought out by a
thorough system of education whlch^
may be obtained by studying trade
journals, joining press associations,
etc., and coupled with a good atlff
■pine, enabling him to charge a fair
profit for his output.
