Talking It Over BY JOE WILLIAMS NEW YORK, Nov. s.—They've 81 ways said that Billy Petrolle was worth his weight in gold as a battler. Well, Friday night, In a fight for the lightweight championship of the world agalast Tony Canzoneri, Billy Petrolle went off the gold standard. He tried to pull himself down from 145 pounds to 135, and it was no dice. Canzoneri won off by himself. He slowed the man they call the Fargo Express down to a local In a hard, bruising, bitter fight that left the customers gasping at the durability of the beaten fighter from the mid west. There wasn't a dissenting squawk at the end of the fifteenth round when the Brass throated lark of Tenth avenue, Joe Hum- Ehrles, walked over to Canzoneri’* corner, fted hi* soggv right mitten and bellowed: “The winnah. and still champion!" It was an earnest, honest fight between two littla men who were in there swing ing from gong to gong. There wasn't a knockdown in the fight. Once or twice Petrolle seemed to be going but he always managed to fight back to even keel. Canzoneri tried energetically for a knock out but there was no dynamite In his flats. ■ , The end of the fight left no doubt as to the clasa of the New Orleans Italian. It was conceded In advance had no opposition In the lightweightTllvision, save Petrolie, Canzonerl'a convincing victory leaves him In complete command of the division. He was three pounds under the class weight, coming In at 132 He would have been a star back In the old days when the beyo had to do 133 ringside. 0 0 W THETHER Petrolle at his best W could have whipped Canzon eri Friday night is sheer specula tion. But I think even Canzoneri’s warmest enthusiasts tvill admit that the business of making weight didn’t help Petrolle. While It is true he seemed to make it easily, the ordeal most cer tainly must have taken something out of him. I noticed that as early as the sec ond round Canzoneri was bathed in perspiration, an unfailing symptom of physical perfection r.nd physical reserve. Though the pressure, physi cal and nervous, was heavier on Pe trolle, he never once broke out in a coating of dew. He had used up all his surplus fire getting ready for the test. The fight goes In my'book as one of the most stlinng 1 ever saw, in spite of the fact that there was not a knockdown, and that after the tenth It was a foregone con clusion. The sixth round was typical. The men stood toe to toe and ripped punrn I after punch—cruel, jolting, whizzing blows—to head and bodv in a stead'. ; stream. Had you tried you couldn't have i counted them. Whatever chance Petrolle had to win by a punch faded after his enormous exertion In the sixth. You were able to tell that ■when he caught Canzoneri with a roaring right hander to the jaw early In the seventh, an exact counterpart of the punch which had sent Jimmy McLarnin head over heels in the same ring two years ago. If Petrolle was to win, here was the punch that would win for him. But it didn't even kjiock Canzoneri out of stride. From that moment on the boys who had bet on the champion had nothing to worry about. / 000 PETROLLE worried Canzoneri most with his body fire. "Give it to him downstairs" shouted handlers. “He can’t take it. Petrolle gave him plenty downstairs and it soon be came evident that the champion didn’t like it in the body—but as Charley Harvey remarked: “Who does?" Petrolle had Canzoneri bending over double at times to get away from his raking blasts to the belt line but he lacked the speed and the power to carry on a sustained offensive. Always Canzoneri managed to squirm loose, settle himself, and come rushing back with a counter drive. A capacity crowd saw the fight. Can zoneri’s next opponent will be McLarnin here In December. BY CHRISTY WALSH Member, All America Board of Football (Reg. U. S. Pat Office) NEW YORK, Nov. s.—Paul Moss, great Purdue end. ■made All-America Raitngs this week for the second time this fall and Heller, half back, of Pittsburgh, also repeated.

WILDER Columbia—Lewis Burton, New York American, rates Wilder the best center at Columbia in many years. He passes the ball consistently, backs up the line savage ly and against Cornell made many tackles behind the line of scrimmage. , BERNARD Michigan—Another great center and rated this week by Fritz Crisler, Prince ton coach.

HELLER Pittsburgh—Against Notre Dame this speedy player made the experts forget his marvelous ball carrying by reason of his amazing defensive play.

A Tony Canzoneri squarely at his peak—a Canzoneri conditioned, so beautifully attuned that even the at the ringside admitted he was worthy to stand alongside the lightweight giants of the past. The nearly 20.000 customers who jammed. Madison Square Garden for the bout Friday night, went there to see a fight that had been bally hooed as the best lightweight scrap of the decade. For ten rounds it was about that. Then Petrolle, the old Fargo Express, reached the end of the line. Up until that point he had roared along at top speed, throttle open, w'histle down. The derailment came in the eleventh wherfs without warn ing, his speed, his punch, his stamina—in fact everything but his will to win—left him. From there on out, the old Fargo Express was just a milk train trying to finish out the run. Still King M He Tony Canzoneri Still the champion—and from the form he exhibited in punish ing Billy Petrolle Friday night, it will be a long time before any body topples that lightweight crown off the wolthy brow of Tony Canzoneri. He’s a fight ing champion, and a popular one, too. Oaks Capture First Victory By Times Special OAKLAND CITY, Ind., Nov. 5.

St. Mary’s Can’t Lose—Peter (Sanitation Department) Coyle on Hand By Vnitcd Press NEW YORK. Nov. s.—St. Mary’s Galloping Gaels are a good bet to defeat Fordham today, principally because Peter Coyle—of the New Haven Sanitation Department Coy les—will be on the bench alongside Obach Slip Madigan. By the same token, all thg other Notre Dame-coached elevens throughout the country are in danger of losing because Peter Coyle will not be on hand to grace their benches and shout words of wisdom and encouragement. Coyle is the two-eyed Connolly of Notre Dame football. He has held this position for some ten years, or ever since that day when he, by some mysterious means, attached himself to the late Kaute Rockne. There were times in those last five rounds when it didn’t seem Billy could make it. For the champion was just as strong as Billy was weak. Tony rated himself perfectly. Rocks Petrolle in Eleventh Canzoneri’s handlers must have sensed Petrolle was about ready to be flagged. The round was not half over when two stinging rights all but drove Petrolle to his haunches. The champion’s stinging left jabs, delievered as he moved in and out like a cat, began to blind Billy in the twelfth. Petrolle, his legs rubbery, his eyes nearly closed, and with blood trick ling from his nose and mouth, was little more than a target in the thirteenth and fourteenth. Time and again Tony rocked the chal lenger with whistling lefts and rights to the head, but J3illy, as game a battler as ever pulled on the gloves, took it without a change of expression. Whipped to a frazzle, Petrolle summoned his last bit of strength at the start of the fifteenth, and for a few seconds, actually forced Can zoneri to beat a retreat. This flurry was a dying gasp, for before a minute was gone the champion was once again hammering away at his man with every shot in his kit. Weight Loss Hurt After the fight Petrolle and his manager, Jack Hurley, made no sort of alibi. Those who expected to hear them say the task of making the 135-pound weight robbed Pe trolle of his strength, were dis appointed. But it’s true that chopping off those ten excess pounds did draw Billy too fine. But even if he had been allowed to come in at his best fighting weight, it’s doubtful if he could have whipped the Canzoneri of last night—a Canzoneri who had everything it takes and more. • In his dressing room the cham pion said he could have set a hotter pace in the early round had he not elected to wait until Petrolle soft ened up a bit before cutting loose. “And,” Tony said, “if you knew how that Billy can hit, you’d know just how wise I was to wait until some of the juice went out of his punches.” , <4G?t e .° r S e Washin ßt°n, 30; North Dakota Pacific, 18; Albany, 0.

The little veteran of the turf, who recently announced his retirement from the saddle to devote full time to training, was stricken suddenly Friday. INDIANS TIE TEMPLE By Times Special PHILADELPHIA. Nov. s.—Sen sational runs of seventy-eight and fifty-one yards by Swift Bird, gave the Haskell Indians of Lawrence, Kan., a 14 to 14 tie with the strong Templ& university eleven here Fri day night. Legend has it that Knute, look ing up and down the bench one day just before an important game, spied Coyle. “Who is that and throw it out of here,” thundered Knute. Whereupon. Coyle moved three paces closer tp Rockne, told him to "watch those ends” and stayed put. Notre Dame won, and after that Coyle was Rockne’s shadow. And "Rock” would not consider starting a game until his good luck charm was safely on the bench, Peter’s sidelines pass dangling from his coat. Rockne even put up with Peter's coaching, allowing the New Haven vagabond to advise him what plays to run, when to take out players, THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES Southport Winds Up Successful Season i V i an* Thu - a, .

It brought the record of Coach Pitcher’s Car dinals to six victories in eight starts, and the football campaign at Southport high school was voted a huge success. The Cards ran wild against Greenfield in the closing tjlt on the Southport field, and the visitors were outclassed from the start by the welLconditioned winners. Coach Pitcher’s team played a spirited arid aggressive game all season. 23 Juveniles in Rich Race By Times Special BALTIMORE, Nov. s.—Twenty three stellar 2-year-olds, the best in training, were scheduled to par ticipate in the twelfth renewal of the $40,000 added Pimlico Futurity over a mile and sixteenth route here today.

Jess Pritchett led the team to this total when he hit for counts of 215, 255 and 277, a season's record of 747.

The 1,165 game was scored despite a 169 by O’Grady. Fehr having 227, Murphy, 237; Hueber, 255, and Pritchett 277 in the final. Seven Up rollers may as well make up their minds to get the wood during their match with Barbasol that opens on the Uptow'n drives Sunday at 8 p. m. The Barbasols are at the peak of their game and every member is a veteran tourna ment and match game bowler. The Bar basol total Friday night picks up' the five pin per game edge that Seven Up had, both teams now boasting a season's mark of better than 1,015 pins per game. Tickets for the match are on sale at the Pritchett Recreation, and Uptown alleys, and an early sell-out seems sure, as the seating capacity at both places is limited. Don Johnson has been on the sick list recently and may not appear in the first half of the match. .Johnson Chevrolet again won three gan es, the Rose Tire team being their latest victim. The Johnson boys totalled 3,057, George Meeker leading the way with a total of 679. Burnett had 663 and Coble. 629. F. Hare and R. Fox had scores of 693 and 657 for the losers.

City Candy had Schwegman. Lindamood and Werner rolling totals of 660, 658 and 623 to give this team a three-game count of 3,055 on games of 1,020, 1,031 and 1,004 that was good for a triple win over Wheeler Lunch, who was also getting a few pins, Wimberly.

Top Elevens Wage Action Against Strong Opponents on All Fronts BY JACK CUDDY • United Pres* Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Nov. s—Two un beaten football teams were expected to be blotted out of the eastern championship picture today as lead ing teams launched the season's biggest drive for sectional honors on all fronts. Pittsburgh tackled Pennsylvania at Philadelphia, and only Holy Cross invaded Brow r n’s stronghold at Providence, R. I. With these four unbeaten elevens primed for heroics, there seemed little chance of tie scores. Jock Sutherland’s Pitt Panthers were favorites to eliminate the Pennsylvania Quakers because of the Panthers’ formidable showing in trouncing Notre Dame. But Penn sylvania, after-several secret ses sions, approached the encounter with confidence. Brown, conqueror of Harvard, held the edge over Holy Cross, the “Mystery team” of the east. Pos sessing the newest of football’s of fensives the triple wing-back system of attack —the Iron Men of Providence have acquired an en viable reputation this season, turn ing back opponents far more for midable than those which met the Holy Cross Crusaders.
