Loughran in Best Fighting Trim of Long Career , His Manager Declares N. D. Eleven May Attain Crowd Mark Many Feature Games Gives Irish Chance at Attendance Record. >/ Times BveeUil SOUTH BEND, Ind.. Sept, 24. Attendance records for collegiate football are almost certain to be shattered this season by Notre Dame in its schedule of nine games. The Irish will perform four times at Soldiers’ field, Chicago, because their own Cartier field is torn up in the process of construction of anew stadium. On two past occasions Notre Dame has drawn more than 100,000 spec tators. The Southern California- Notre Dame contest in 1927 drew 115.000 persons to Soldiers’ field, while last year 122,000 spectators watched Knute Rockne's team de feat the Navy, 7 to 0. When the Irish meet Southern California this fall in Chicago, they may play to their greatest crowd yet, while the Wisconsin and North western games also will find them packed in. The game with Drake on the Soldiers’ field gridiron also is expected to attarct a fairly large crowd. Away from home, Notre Dame will play before crowds of from 25,000 to 85,000 with Indiana at Blooming ton, Navy at Baltimore, Carnegie Tech at Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech at Atlanta and Army at New York.

BY JOE SMITH Mtnat'r of Tommy Loaghran (Written for the United Press) HARVEY’S LAKE, Pa., Sept. 24. —ln his final boxing workout here for his heavyweight match against Jack Sharkey in the Yankee sta dium, New York, on Thursday night, Tcmmy Loughran supplied an ex ample of the sort of a battle he is going to wage against the big Bos tonian. Tommy was tough in his three round tiff with Frankie Caw.ey. Loughran is going to be that when in the ring with Sharkey. The strenuous workout. Monday, in addi tion to boxing, included calisthenics, bag punching and rope jumping eight rounds in all. When Loughran is right he al ways has a keen, burning desire to win. That’s why I know he is right for this fight. Loughran is in the best condition of his fighting career. He went through his final boxing workout Monday afternoon, follow ing a four-mile jaunt on the road. He has been doing road work every other day since he came to camp in addition to other exercises, to toughen and harden himself. So, when he stepped on to the scales at the end of his workout Monday afternoon and weighed 185 pounds, I was satisfied. At that weight, a man should be big and strong enough to lick any one else, no matter whether his opponent is a giant—that is, providing the smaller has the class, and Tommy has the class.

Thirteen of the eighteen collegiate elevens will get into ac tion Saturday. Butler will dish out its first and only early season game at Butler bowl, with Illinois Wesleyan as op ponents.

And when the lanky Ehmke has hurled the final ball In that Contest he will announce his retirement. He will never pitch another game. Connie Mack’s aging moundsman has never pitched in a world series. Many a fine ball game has been hurled by the ancient Ehmke. In 1923, while a member of the Boston Red Sox, he entered baseball’s hall of fame by setting down the Ath letics hitless and runless. A few days later, In his very next start, he twirled a one-hit game against the league-leading Yankees, being robbed of a second successive no-hit game by a bad bounder that squirted through the infield for a safety. In Connie Mack’s quest for right handed pitching, which, the experts declare, will be necessary to with stand the attack of those right handed Cub batters, the tall pilot may select Ehmke to start one of the games if his southpaws fail him.

There is anew featherweight cham pion of the world today—a hitherto rather unknown Italian youngster of 21, Bat Battalino of Hartford. Christopher Battalino, whose pre vious claim to professional fistic fame was a victory over A1 Brown, world's bantamweight title claimant, now wears the 126-pound t-oga by virtue of a fifteen-round victory over Andre Routis of France at the Hurley stadium here Monday night. Routis, managed by Joe Jacobs and disqualified in New York state, risked his championship here against the rugged Connecticut Italian, and was decisively defeated. Battalino won ten of the fifteen rounds easily. Unknown to most fight fans until recently, when he defeated Brown, Battalino proved the little French man’s master throughout the fight. The referee’s count gave him a per fect score, although Routis, battling gamely, actually won a round now and then. Battalino weighed 124’i, Routis, 125%. The new champion has been fighting as a professional for only two years. He won the national amateur featherweight champion ship at Boston in 1927. PHILLIPS SHADES CROWLEY Bu United Press PITTSBURGH.
