The I'enn basketball team will be
weakened considerably for tho final trip
of the reason which starts tomorrow
night and Includes the last two games of
the cago year. Tho Quakers will bo
forced to play without the services of
Lardle Davis, the lanky center, who Is
suffering from grip.
Coach Jourdet ranks Davis as tho best
in the Intercollegiate League nnd de
clares that this seaon his record Is one
of the best that ecr has been mado by a
collegiate Jumper. Davis tallied twenty
three Held goals In nine league engage,
ments nnd only two goali havo been
scored against him. Both of these were
mado by Alexander, of Columbia.
The loss of Davis Is moro severe In
view of the fact that the Quakers plav
hyracuso and Syracuse means .Toe
Schwarzer, perhaps the best center de
veloped In collegiate ranks within recent
years. Syracuse beat I'enn on the
Weighting.!! Hall court this year and
Coach Jourdet Is particularly anxious
for revenge.
Dutch Teck, the big guard, who was
out of tho r-rlnccton game last Saturday
with tonsillitis, reported for practice las!
night, and ho win bo in condition for the
trip. It Is probable that Jourdet will
send him to center and move Stannard
back to- guard. Uabhit Romanat will fill
In at forward with Sweeney.

Dr. Joseph Kalbfus. secretary of tho

Pennsylvania will expire this year.
Moorestown Is leading the West Jer

points to its credit.
Many I'hllly wing shots are oiling
their guns for a trip out of town next

MISHE ADMITS
HE'S CHAMPION
Claims He Is the Only One
Really Entitled to
Meet Willard
HERE'S HIS RECORD
Hilly Mlbke, of St Paul, a fighter of
toughness, wants to know where he gets
off In this WIll-rd-Kulton-Dempsey
thing.
In a letter today Penrl Smith, man
ager of Mlske wants to know why Billy
Isn't belnij given (onin consideration.
"Although Fulton nnd Dcmpsey are
first-class men, 1 can't peo why pro
moters overlook Hilly Mlske, who lias
defeated Fulton twice." Kmlth remarks
under a letterhead which proclaims Hilly
the world's heavyweight champion.
Sliske Outclasses Them
"In seventy bouts." Smith nmbles on,
"Mtsko has noer been knocked off his
feet, whereas Dcmpsey nnd Fulton havo
been knocked out. t have been trying
to get Dcmpsey to meet Mlske, but to
date have not succeeded.
"BUI may bo lighter than these other
two, but he, llko Hob Fltzslmmons, has
tho goods. I think Mlske Is n second
Hob In both build and lighting cipalltles."
Mlske Is the tlrst man iccalled Just
at present who ha.i designated Hilly
Mlske as the world's heavyweight
champion, lie claims It through Mlfko's
victory "oer Fulton In St. Paul." The
bout was ten rounds, went tho limit nnd
no dtclslou was tendered. As a matter
of fact, Fulton and Mlske should nettle
their troubles and Jack Dempsey really
should eliminate Mlsko beforo setting
himself up as the equal of Fulton. A
Mlske-Denipjcy bout would be worth n
big gate.
Fullon-Dcmpscy Dout SuRccstcd
Although Fred Fulton and his man
ager are headed for a Willard gnhfest
In Kansas; City tnday. they are consider
ing offerings for another light In tho
near future. The slamming given the
mighty planter by old Tom Cowler
caused ono Chicago promoter with u
tpnro $30.0110 to offer that amount for
a match with Jack Dempsey.
If Is believed Jess Willard will argue
that Dempsey should have 11 tlrst shot
at Fulton. Dempsey and his manager
wnnt It becnuso they believe such n
meeting will mean tho westerner would
take Fulton's place as Wlllard's oppo
nent for the title.
Dcmpsey Is Willing
Jack Kearns sent up a wall of an
guish today over tho efforts of pro
moters to match Fulton and Willard.
Jack, manager of Jack Dempsey, an
notineed he Is after Fulton for Dempsey.
"We nre not after Willard." he de
clared, "but certainly know that Demp
sey can whip Willard and do it de
cisively." GREAT JAP WRESTLER
RETIRES WITH FORTUNE
Tachlyama. Japan's createst minm
wrestler, has retired from the game,
witn plenty or money to tide him over.
He was tho John U Sullivan of Japan,
except that he saved his coin.
From n poor son of ono of the poor
est farmers of his native land to tho
greatest landowner nnd wealthiest sub
'ect of the same Ullage Is the story of
tho rise of Tachlyama. When he re
tired from rctunl competition he had
amased a fortune of 250.000 veil,
equivalent to $100,000 In 'American colli.
His last appearance In public was In
ICudan, Japan, last month, end 20,000
fans were on hand to see him In his
last match.

Uses Clubs Two Feet Longer in Shaft and Has

By PETER
F3U years George Sutton, tho armless
bllllardlst, has been a feature of
billiard exhibitions In this mid other
cities. His work with tho ciio places him
among the top-notchers In any sort of
balk-linn billiards. Spectators havo
marveled at the skill he has shown,
handicapped as ho Is. Ho demonstrated
years ago that despite his handicap ho
can hold lil own against many of tho
best players III the country.
Not only Is he an excellent billiard
player, but ho Is an expert with lire
arms, ho can write and draw with mar
velous dexterity and there Is hardly any
thing u man can do with two good arms
and hands that ho cannot do almost as
well and In some cases even better.
Has a 77 to His Credit
Hut while all thesn things which ho
does seem very much out of tho ordi
nary It will be news to many who havo
seen him In local exhibitions to learn
that he also Is a golfer. And he Is not
in the dub class by any manner of
means, for ho has made a score of 77
for eighteen holes over one of tho Chi
cago courses.
Handicapped as ho Is by arms cut off
Just two feet longer than those used by
the average player. There arc no thongs
to bo attached to the arms and there Is
no artltlclal contrivance of any kind to
aid him In making his shots.

Facts
There is a steadily increas
ing demand for automobiles
as Spring approaches.
The transportation problem
is serious nnd because of inter
ferences in nroductive canaci-
ties there will not, be enough cars to meet the demand.
It' might be good merchandising, for us to hold
such cax-s as we are getting for the higher prices which
are certain to cone as a result of scarcity. Neverthe
less We are not forgetting our friends and patrons,
and we urge you who are contemplating the purchase
of a car to secure it without delay.
