It Over

was worth his weight in gold as a
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
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
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,

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
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. /
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

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

back with a counter drive.

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. Roy
Hflrstmann, Purdue full back, also
is mentioned for his fine play
against N. Y. U. last Saturday.
Com petition is becoming keener
and Weekly Ratings at this time
and from now on are important and
doubtless will indicate the warriors
selected will have an excellent
chance to survive the final test.
The ten stars selected for out
standing performances in games of
Oct. 29 by the manager of the All-
America Board follow:
Princeton—Here's the one bov Michigan
could not stop. With the help -of great
blocking he showed one of the finest
bucking performances of the year.
Michigan's possession of the ball was
limited to nine plays in the first half,
and James of Princeton, received most
of the credit.
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.
Michigan—Another great center and
rated this week by Fritz Crisler, Prince
ton coach. He made nearly every tackle
in the line and according *o observers
Princeton would have marched right
down the field but for the powerful
Bernard. Coach Crisler pronounced
Bernard the most valuable player in the
Michigan line-up.
St. Mary’s—Rated by Milt Phinney,
Oakland Tribune, as one of the best tackles
on the Pacific Coast. He played a smash
ing defensive game against Santa Clara
and his tackling’ featured St. Mary's one
point victory.
University of California (Los Angeles)
Pop Warner, member All America Board
of Football, calls him one of the great for
ward passers of the Pacific coast. Against
Stanford he showed all around ability, no
matter which side Tad the ball.
Vanderbilt —Coach Alexander. also a
member of the All America Board of Foot
ball. rates Roberts as one of the best all
around players in Dixie and calls him the
hardest running back he has seen this
year. Roberts is a wizard on passes, a
fine kicker, a vicious blocker and a power
on defense.
Brown—ln this upset game It was Bill
Gilvane's magnificent blocking, his great
defensive play and aggressive work on
offense that brought victory to Brown over
Harvard, according to Eddie Casey of the
All America Board.
Pittsburgh—Against Notre Dame this
speedy player made the experts forget his
marvelous ball carrying by reason of his
amazing defensive play. His consistent i
tackling behind the line of scrimmage
was the chief factor in wearing down No
tre Dame and eventually in breaking tbe
Irish morale.
Purdue—This flashy player from the
middle west gave the east a stunning ex
hibition of end play. Moss and his team
mate Rov Horstmann. full back, were the
big Berthas against N Y. U. and between
tham seored lour touchdowns.
Tale—This whirlwind half back from
Dixie earn# into hts own against Dart
mouth. Lassiter played almost the entire
game, was a power on rushing the ball
and a bulwark on defense. When Crowlev
was injured. Lassiter added some great
kicking to his versttile performance.

Tony Flashes Unbeatable Form to Flag Fargo Express in
Sensational 15-Round Tussle Before 20,000,
Fans; Challenger Whipped to Frazzle.
United Press StafT Correspondent
NEW YORK, Nov. 5-. —lt just wasn’t in the cards for Billy Petrolic
to win a championship.
1 After eleven long years of campaigning, during which time he never
once got a shot at a title, fate handed him a crack at the .lightweight
crown. \
4nd what did Billy draw 7 for an opponent? 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.

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

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
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.” ,

Company three games during the City
League play on the Hotel Antler drives,
their games being 1,063, 1,093 and 1,165.
Jess Pritchett led the team to this total
when he hit for counts of 215, 255 and 277,
a season's record of 747. Johnny Fehr
also found his stride that featured his
play last season, rolling games of 245, 247
and 227 for a total of 719. Hueber had
679, O’Grady, 593, and young Johnny
Murphy 583. 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

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

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
