By PAUL PREP
Only cool and heady work by Speedy
Vanderberry enabled Frank Corry, the
noted Australian motor-paced bicycle
rider, to escape oerlous injury last even
ing at the Point Breeze Motordrome. As
it was, Corry was extremely fortunate
to receive but several minor injuries and
a scarred left side.
Corry was one of the four competitors
In the main event of the evening's pro
gram, the forty-mile motor-paced race.
With second choice in the matter of se
lecting his pacemaker, he asked for
Peerless Jimmy Hunter. AH four riders
got away to a fine and equal start with
George Wiley, paced by the famed Rody
Lehman, setting the pace. On the third
lap Corry started a sprint to overtake
the leader.
Happened ton Fourth Mile
As they were passing in front of the
crowded grand stand Corry's front wheel
sunk into a small hole In the wooden
track, which the attendants had just
started to repair. Corry and his ma
chine were thrown into the air and
landed on the track fully fifteen yards
away from where the accident had taken
place. His momentum was so great
that he was unable to come to a rest
until he had slid twenty yards more
on the track.
At the time of the accident Speedy
Vanderberry, pacing Menus Bedell, was
only thirty yards or so behind Corry.
When Corry and his machine landed on
the track again directly in Vander
berry's path, "Van" wag only a small
distance away. To escape running over
and probably killing Corry, Vanderberry
had to swerve suddenly to the right. This
he did successfully and Corry was safe
by a margin of Inches Willing hands
then rushed to the helpless Corry, while
the spectators gae Vanderberry a great
ovation for his presence ot mind.
Wiley and Lehman Win
George Wiley, the veteran six-day
rider, was fortunate In the draw for
pacemakers and had first, choice. He
selected Rody Lehman. They took the
lead at the start of the race and held
their advantage until the end of the
event. They crossed the line a winner
by three laps over Menus Bedell, the
second man, who in turn was a lap In
front of Pete Drobach, of Boston. Dro
bach substituted for Madonna, who was
Injured in Boston Wednesday night.
Wiley was In great shape last night
and fully deserved to win. His victory
over Menus Bedell In the excellent time
of 66 minutes 24 2-5 seconds places him
among the favorites who will compete
in the annual American championship
motor-paced race at 100 kilometers, or
sixty-two and one-halt miles, next Mon
day at Point Breeze.
Maggiy Taylor Impressed
Among the clubmen at the races last
night who were enjoying their first look
at the various speed kings were Bobby
Gunnls and "Muggsy" Taylor, the pro
moters of the'all-star boxing show which
will be hId next Tuesday evening at
Shlbe Park. Taylor was deeply im
pressed by the splendid condition of the
motor-paced riders, but he was some
what skeptical at first.
"Say, let me tell you something," said
Muggsy, as he watched the men speed
around the bowl. "Those birds won't laBt
the forty miles. I've seen boxers start
oft like a house afire, only to take the
count before the sixth round. It'll be
the same with" these fellows. I want to
be around when they carry them off at
the end of the race."
The boxing promoters and "Doc."
Kotch stayed around until the end of
the race. "Here's where I get a close
up look at one of these guys," said
Taylor as he started for the judges'
stand, "I think they'll need assistance."
But the youthful matchmaker was
wrong and very much surprised to see
the veteran Wiley, after riding an extra
lap after the race was over, hop eft his
machine and walk steadily away to his
dressing room, without so much as tak
ing a deep breath. Wiley looked as
though he could have ridden forty miles
more without any great effort He will
bear watching In Monday night's cham
pionship race.

pride of Port Richmond, are ready for

Promotors fall to protect themselves.
At least, the Quaker City boxing mag
nates have neglected to take the trouble
to guard their shows. The out-of.town
boxers who engage In battles right up
to the minute they apepar here are
taking a chance at getting Injured, and
oftentimes forcing the promoters to put
on substitute bouts.
Willie ackson was signed more than
a week ago to box here on Tuesday
night. Last Wednesday he went twelve
rounds against Frankje Brltt, in Bos
ton. Jackson won the bout, but If he
had been beaten or Injured. Promoters
Taylor, Gunnls and Hanlon would be
forced to look up new talent to oppose
Irish Patsy Kline. Cllne was due to
box In Jersey, last night, but doubtless
was persuaded at the last minute not
to do so. According to the agreement
between fighters and promoters for this
show .the combatants must be In the
city at Jeast forty-eight hours before
the night of the battle. This should
be sufficient to prevent any more pre
vious engagements.
Speed Essential
Most of the boys who are accustomed
to engaging in the ten-round game seem
to belittle six-round contests, and believe
that little training is necessary. In
most of the big bouts here the battles
have been fast, and the contestants ad
mitted later that condition counts, even
In a short bout, If the pace Is a speedy
one. And to make an Impression In
these limited battles It is speed that
tells. As a result, the principals must
be in perfect trim.
Five of the eight boys who box' at
Shlbe Park Tuesday night are concen
tratlng for the big show. Battling Le
vlnsky and Harry Greb, Sam Langford
and Thompson, flrot and second bouts.
respecth ely, are going through the reg
ular training course. Soldier Bartfleld
shows that he respects Brltton by arriv
Ing here early for the encounter.
It now Is up to Jackson, Brltton and
Cllne to make ready. It would be unfair
to the boxing fans to have anything
happen to the principals due to the
negligence of the promoters.
Fulton-Dempeer Ready
Jack Dempsey and Fred Fulton finish
ed training today for their eight-round
encounter at Harrison, N. J., tomorrow
afternoon.
The stage Is set at last for their
often postponed meetings. The last ob
stacle was removed when Fulton settled
his differences with a New York draft
board which had ordered his apprehen
sion and arrest on a charge that he
failed to respond to a summons for ex
amination. , The only thing that possibly can
block their meeting now Is the weather.
The bout Is to be staged in the old
Federal League ball park at Harrison.
The men will anoner the gong at 6:30
o'clock.
Both fighters are In the best of shape.
They have been examined by members
of the New Jersey Boxing Commission,
which is satisfied aa to their physical
fitness.
Speculation on the outcome here to
day strowed a trend toward Dempsey
as the probable winner, though $he short
route eight rounds is considered a bit
brief to bring out the very best there
is In the big rivals.
Fulton will enter the ring holdlnsr a
decided advantage over Dempsey In
height, weight and reach. Critics point
out that Dempsey must overcome this
handicap with his speed.

MINOR LEAGUE TO CONTINUE
New International Expects to
Play Baseball for Full Season
New York, July 26. The club owners
of the new International League met at
the Biltmore last night 'to take action
about the future of the circuit In the
event of the enforcement of the work-or-flght
order for baseball players. Pres
ident John H. Farrell stated that no ac
tion would be taken until Secretary
Baker made a decision on the brief re
cently submitted by the major leagues
to the Provost Marshal. The Interna
tional will continue with players under
and over the draft age, If such a plan
meets with the Government's approval.
President Farrell submitted a letter
from Manager Clark Griffith, of Wash
ington, thanking the league for making
the largest contribution of any organi
sation in baseball. The International
raised $8680.08 for the Clark Griffith
Bat and Ball Fund for the soldiers In

Wilmington, Del, July 26.
THE hills and dells of Bellevue, a
quiet, placid spct a trifle over five
miles from this city, reverberated the
sound of many guns yesterday aa more
than half a hundred 'enthusiasts of the
"sport alluring" biased away In the
opening event of the Powder City trap
shooting tournament. It waa classifica
tion day, the gunners being divided Into
three, groups, A, B and C, for each of
which a trio of trophies were provided.
Frank Troeh, a Washington State
entry and' one time national amateur
champion, gathered In the A class
laurels by smashing 173 out of a possi
ble ITS targets. The marksmanship he
exhibited made many of the contestants
gasp, and yet such was the class of the
entrants that the score was tied. How
ever, L. S. German, who also broke all
save two clays, Is a professional, and
each, therefore, took the high honors In
his respective class.
Two Wilmington shots. George H.
Simon and W. M. Foord, finished second
and third to Troeh, the former earning
a 'score of 172 and the latter 170. The
shooting In this class was by far the
best and closest of the day, for while
the winners were also bunched In Class
B their records were on the average of
five targets poorer. It was here that
Phlladelphlans came to the fore, S. E.
Clarke, H. C. Hoffman and H. W. Lodge

Clarke's mark was 1S8; Hoffman's, 167,

rassing than "that"? The word meant this,
that the Allentown squad which traveled
down to the Quaker City to meet Phlladel

own alleys, which caused the remark. The
Pennaylvanlans not only defeated the Quaker
boya, but ran up aome remarkable scoring.
Mann, of the up-State team, sent the big ball
swiftly down the maple alleys, 'tossing the
pins for the high score of 260. This scoring,
along with Selger's 204, and Erdman'a 191,
!sslsted by Bherer with 1ST and Flahart with
T8. gave the visitors a score of 1080 pins
anlnst the "stare" " BTO. However. Cook,
rolling on the local team, also showed rare
form when ho tallied 2T8 pins.
William Zler. with the large pjna, rolled
a perfect score of 800,. the, object of the
