PAGE SEVEN 1 4 4 IRAO'NEIL AND RALPH PEM GO TEN ROUNDS TO A DRAW DECISION BY ED HARRINGTON Ira O'Neil had Ralph Pena ready lor the long sleep several times last night, but his mitts got ahead of his think tank and he couldn't remember vhat to do next. By the time his thoughts recovered so had Pena and the, crafty Mexican went the ten rounds to a draw. The draw was more of a gift than a verdict, as Ira took practically every round from Pena. Ralph was the aggressor at every stage of the fight, but Ira made tip lor his shortcomings In that re spect by pounding Pena'a face to a DriUiant hue with a kayo looming In every round. Ira injured his left hand In the firm round and was handicarmed during the rest of the fight, but the Injured hand was no alibi for Ira's siow reasoning power. Pena has an Iron Jaw and a won- Cerful ability to assimilate punish Bient. In the third round Ira missed his chance when he allowed Pena to weather through the bout. He had Pena wobbling, and hanging on the ropes and stood before him with his arms at rest waiting for Pena to either drop. or right. Pena took ev erything Ira had to offer and came back fighting. He held his own In the fourth, but slipped back in the fifth and sixth and in the seventh Pena raced Ttround the rinp faster man JJe i'alma a Ballot. He -out- boxed and outgeneraled Ira, but was r.ot up far enough to win a draw ver dict. The fight was good from the spec tators' point with both millers ready and willing to fight all the time. Ihe announcer gave Iras weight as 156 pounds and Pena tipped the beam at 148 Mi. Ira forfeited his weight bond when he failed to make the 150 pound limit, but Pena gamely consented to go through with the bout and deserves credit for his showing. In the semi-final Toung Rivers took a brodie after taking a beating from loung Mike tor almost two rounds. Rivers is a game lad ordi narily, but he dropped from grace last night when he quit to Mike. Young Mike hammered Rivers to the ropes and had the boy in a bad way, but far from out. Rivers stood it for a few seconds and went down for the count. He got up with a sickly smile and walked from the ring. Rivers didn't wait for the armistice to be signed he quit early in the game and saved himself from punish ment. Frank Williams of San Diego had nothing but a nice head of hair and a pair of fighting trunks, but he forced Soldier Brown to quit in three rounds. Tou never can tell a fighter by the expression on hia face. Williams looked the part of a favorite son and Soldier Brown would never take a prize at a beauty show. But his fight was all in the looks and the spinal column failed to back up the boy who wore the gloves. In the first round Brown gave Williams a bad beating and faded his blonde complextion to a crimson. The fans fell sorry for Williams and figured Brown an easy winner. Williams knew nothing of fighting, but he was game, which is more than ean be said for Brown. The first blow was the finishing blow and after that it was Just a question of when Brown would quit. A right cross to tle Jaw sent him down for the count of three In the second round and when he recovered he went down for eight. In the third round a series of rabbit punches sent him down for nine with Brown anxious to quit. The Mexican regained his feet Ml 10 III and V; m "V" '''' zora Back again in the front linebiggest cigar value we know.

He took the count of 10 and, like Rivers, walked from the ring when the verdict was given Will iams. Speedy Flynn lost to Wildcat Johns but he made a whirlwind finisli that earned him a draw and brought the fans to their feet in the four-round special. The Wildcat was wild last night nd pummeled Flynn with everything for three rounds. Flynn took the worKs ana opened in the last half of the fourth after a right hook that staggered Johns. Flynn had Johns ready for the count when the bell sounded, wo argument on the gameness of either Johns or Flynn and they put up a good fight. In the curtain raiser Rufus the Two lost another decision to Kid Romo, but to the ringside fans it ap peared that Rutus was eniiuea to the verdict. Rufus woreea ramo lor a marathon and forced him to cover in every round with Romo taking the last session by a clean margin. They fought hard ana wcm in wnn a de termination to settle the long stand ing argument which remains as far from a decision as before they started. . The cold, chill air aampenea tne spirit of the fans who held down the arena seats, but all who attended the card received full value for both time and money. Matchmaker Shomo failed to enrich the legion treasury to a great extent, but he put on a good card and the fans had a lot of fun. FOOTBALL CLASSICS HOLD CENTER STAGE IN THE EAST TODAY fRenubllcan A. P. Leased Wire! . NEW YORK. Nov. 11. Football classics of major and minor degree hold the center of the Eastern grid iron tomorrow afternoon. or tne first time this season inter-seetlonal ism is almost lacking and interest will hinge on the struggles which, in some cases date their initial conflict back three or four decades. Overshadowing ail other battles is the YalePrinceton game at New Haven, although the Navy-Penn State, Syraeuse-Colgate, Pennsylva niaDartmouth, Harvard-Brown, Am herst-Williams, Washington and- Jef-Jerson-Pittsburg. Wesleyan-Union and Villa Nova-Army clashes are all of more than passing football in terest. IntPrinceton the undefeated Yale eleven laces its lirst real opponent. Notwithstanding the string of vic tories accumulated by EH this fall, including the 14 to 7 triumph over the Army, the fact remains that in none of these games has the blue been opposed by a team of the Tigers' caliber. A triumph over old Nassau would eliminate any doubt regarding the re juvenating of the bulldog. Yale possesses a remarkable amount of gridiron material, much of exceptional merit, but the majority of the players are young, both in years and experience. More tnan half the players who will line up against Princeton have yet to win their first varsity letter. In Jordon, Aldrich, Mallory, O'Hearn and Becket the blue has an all around back field capable of pur suing every style of modern as well as ancient offense. In forward pass ing, punting, drop kicking, end run ning and line buckig these players form the best combiatlon that Eli has had in years. The line is heavy and fast, with perhaps more power in its charge than in its defense. Against this really formidable CAN EAST BEAT WEST?

BY ROY GROVE Can the west again put the damper on the east in collegiate football as they did last year when California kicked Ohio State from the Sunkist plant back to the land of the buck eyes? Coach Bezdek's band of Penn State warriors will furnish the answer on Dec 8, when they Journey to Seattle to play Washington University, a team that under Enoch Bagshaw Is coming rapidly to the front on the coast. All the Pacific coast teams are stronger this season than they were last, and Pacific coast conference games are ho exhibition matches. Penn Primed But Bezdek's men will be primed for the Bakshaw post-season battle by the experience of a season, the schedule of which calls for games with Lehigh, Harvard, Georgia Tech, Navy.

Cornwall starred with the Freshies eleven the Tigers will send a veteran team, .tried and tested in both vic tory and defeat. The orange and black lacks a plunging back of the power and weight of Jordon, but is likely to make up for this by a fi nesse' in delayed and concealed ball offensive which probably will prove puzzling to the blue first and second ary defense. There appears to be little choice in the lines and it is likely that unless Yale is over-awed by the camou flaged attack of the Tigers the game will settle down to a bitter, long drawn out battle in which the breaks of the play will decide the winner. A struggle of no less interest, but lacking the eame traditions, will be the meeting of the Navy and Penn State on neutral ground at Philadelphia-Harvard is expected to use a sec ond string combination against Brown, which should make that con test more even.
