THB PA1XA8 EXPRESS, DALLAS, TEXAS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1022.
I'Af.K TEIntTK N WORLD of SPORT OFFERS JIB DEMPSEY 100,0110 TO FIGHT HARRY WIUS MASON OF P. V. PICKS TEXAS ALL STAR ELEVEN. The custom of selecting all-star teams in various phases of athletics -which has obtained among white . colleges in beginning to find way with the Colored athletic promoters and followers. It is Just in very recent years that sufficient interest prevailed among Colored people to warrant the maintenance of an as sociation of any sort. But now that there is an interest it is appropri ate that some such custom as has pevailed among the whltesc in nam ing and publishing all-star terms should be adopted among Colored people. In keeping with this idea, therefore. I am submitting herewith a team, which has been selected after careful consideration of all this year's participants In the sport of foot ball within the conference. Line-up. Ends Owens, Prairie View; Hines, Wiley. Tackles Morgan, Paul Quinn, Pollard, Prairie View. Guards McFarlan, Wiley; Green, Paul Quinn. Center Dillon, Prairie View, Half Backs Carroll, Prairie View Shepherd, Paul Quinn. Quarter Back Western, Wiley. Full Back Sedberry. Paul Quinn. When it comes to getting down the field on punts, stopping your man and being generally in the play, Owens and Hines, as far as we have been able to see have measured up to the fullest requirements as ends both on the offensive and defensive. Their ends could not be turned. Tackles have a great responsibil ity imposed upon them and really have more to look after In taking care of the man with the ball than any other position. But Morgan and Pollard were ever present to an account of the man with the bill. They tackled with a vehe mance that struck terror in the hearts of their opponents and had the effect of discouraging the man whose business it was to carry the pig' skin. McFarlan and Green appeared as impregnable as a stone wall. There was no opening where they stood at any time; and whenever the play followed them, it simply meant a gain. They were as methodical in their work as a machine, never failing to perform' just what was expected of them. They certainly did guard duty. Dlllion, Prairie View's centra easily stood pre-eminent over other contenders for this position both bets because of his experience and because of his remarkable execu tion of the responsibility developing up one In that position. Half backs are men who can take a direct drive into the line with a determination that spells progress without regard to the opposition; and in the fulfilling of these re quirements, you could not find two half backs that perform these du ties more satisfactorily than , Car roll of Prairie View and Shepherd of Paul Qulfin. Both these men are hard in every sense of the word. But with all this, it takes gen eralship. No matter how smart the individual units, there must be some One Governing that can no co-ordinate, and control those units as to make of them a perfect Thole. No body who watched Western, Wi ley's quarter back, maneuvering, could doubt his ability as a gen eral. Sedbury, Paul Quinn, has but gg . i BIRTHS I DEATHS ? !.. ... $ BIRTHS. Mr. and Mrs. R. B.

Your son and daughter are per haps attending some school or col lege; they really enjoy reading the Dallas Eatress; their home paper; among yc ir new resolutions let this be your first one; "I will send to my snn or my daughters ad dress, a Dallas Express for six months." This will no doubt com fort them in their hours of lone somnesa. Miss Lucl'j Williams, State street, was given a three, months subscription to the Dallas Express By International News Service. Denver, Col., Jan. 6. Now that a heavweight championship fight be tween Jack Dempsey, the tltleholder and Hary .Wills has. again been brought to the front. Jack Kanner, Denver's midget boxing impressario, is out with a proposal to stage the match in the Mile High City. Kanr ner declares he is ready to hang up a purse of $100,000 for a twenty round decision battle. While the majority of recent fights staged in Denver have been fifteen rounds or less the Colorado state law permits bouts of twenty rounds duration. "As matchmaker and an official of the National Athletic Club of Denver," Kanner said, "I am ready, even anxious to put on a Dempsey Wills battle for the heavyweight championship. I have sufficient financial backing for such a bout and our club has a lease on the Stockyards Stadium, where the fa cilities are the equal of anything anywhere in the United States. The Stadium has a seating capacity of 15,000, with space for sveral thou sand additional temporary seats available. "I have opened negotiations with the managers of both , Dempsey and Wills and already have received assurances from Paddy Mullins, Wills' manager, that his fighter will meet Dempsey here on any terms that may be arranged. "I have seen both Dempsey and Wills In action many times, and, along with the opinion of many fol lowers of boxing, I believe that Wilis is the only man in the ring today who can be classed as a worthy oppoent of the world's cham pion." Kanner has been interested In pugilism for the last fifteen years, and for the last twelve years he has been following the sport as pro moter and manager. Here In Denver, .he promoted suc cessfully a number of the biggest Imttles staged within the Rocky Mountain region. I have never staged a heavyweight championship battle," said Kanner, "That is one reason why I am es pecially anxious to put on a Demp-sy-Wills contest. Another reason is that I believe it would be the big gest fight ever staged In the world certainly a better and more even fight than the "battle of the .cen tury between Dempsey and Carpen tier last July. Dempsey as every one knew, outclassed the Frenchman, but should he get Into a ring with Wills he would meet a man who not only would be his equal in every way, but who also might de feat the champion." Colored League May Hold First Meeting at San Antonio.
