Don't hesitate to call The Re publican 4331 for aervice. Arizona takes the field against one of the greatest football teams n the country at 'San Diego this afternoon. Centre College trained nation wide recognition by defeating Harvard this season and the name of "Bo" McMil lan means as much to football fans as Babe Ruth does to the followers of baseball. Every college in the United States Is watching this frame 'With interest due to Centre's gridiron prominence and the fact that a. practically un known educational institution will face the Praying Colonels in a tilt for national honors.. Centre College was unknown to few outside of Danville, Kentucky a few years ago. but the Colonels held the Crimson line to a narrow margin last year and came back with a victory this season with the famed "Bo" Mc MiUan carrying off high honors. Wildcats Game Today Arizona sends a team of gridiron warriors to meet Centre and the Wildcats may deliver at least the loyal fans of the baby state are pull- in? for the home boys to beat the plunging athletes from the blue grass hills of Kentucky. Centre College is a heavy favorite. but Arizona fans are placing their confidence in the greatest team that ever represented our university. Arizona's greatest team gave all the dopesters heart failure early this sea son when they journeyed all the way to College Station, Texas, got off the train after a 48 hour trip and fought the great Texas A. and M. team to the last whisper, losing by a score of IT to 13. . When the final whistle sounded the Red and Blue team was fCill fighting to majce that other touchdown which would mean victory in spite of all their handicaps. Time after time the big Texas team took the ball almost to the Wildcat goal ana then failed to put It over because the Arizonians fought them to standstill. Beat Texas A. and M. Texas A. and M.has been scored on only twice in the last seven years on their home grounds and Arizona was the second team to do it. Kot only did they cross the Texas goal once, but in the last quarter they carried the ball over again to show that the ' r m '- r ELEVEN FOR ONE The St. I.oiiis Hhvats r-ive 31 jilnycrs in trade for Dnve Dunforth, pitcher of the c'oliiiutas team in the American as sociation. Columbus receives four pitchers ami a second tiateman im mediately, thre players next spring, two more in 1923 and one in T'srforth ritched for the AVhito Sox in 1917. J ,4 7 f I ED Will Bulletin Reports On first touchdown was no accident. The squad numbered only IS men and had stood a. 48 hour train trip, which fact alone is equivalent to giving the Texan two touchdowns., Against the small band from Arizona, Texas bad three 'full teams on. the Bide lines and could put in a fresh team at any mo ment to stop Arizona and push or start an offensive of their own. They did this in the last few minutes of the game and the travel-weary Wild cats had to give up a precious touch down. The Wildcats were outweighed fully 13 pounds to the man by the Texas team. Beat Whittier Poets In the Whittier game the Poets had the ball within a few feet of Arizona's goal on several occasions, but the fighting Wildcats held ground and forced California to give up the ball. The T-0 victory stamped Arizona the greatest team in the southwest and made the coast experts take notice of the southwestern champions. The Colonels may beat Arizona, but they will know they have been in a football game and the loyal Arizona fans are not yet ready to concede victory to Centre College. The under dog is not always the loser and teams carrying bigger odds than the Colon els have suffered defeat before. Hundreds of Arizona fans accom panied the team to San Diego and will be rooting for the home boys to win. Saturday evening a delegation of 50 Phoenix rooters left for San Diego and win or lose they will be cheering for the Wildcats this afternoon. The home folks will await the final score with anxiety as there is the chance, the big chance, that Arizona may win and gain national recognition as the gamest aggregation of athletes that ever donned the moleskins. As Governor Campbell wired Stu dent -Manager Wallace "Fight 'cm Wildcats. All Arizona is behind you." LOS ANGELES PAPER SAYS AMI IS STRONGER WASHINGTON ELEVEN Centre College went through her last workout for the Arizona game at San Diego Monday on the Ooro- nado polo field , fcaturday. The "Praying Colonels" look to be in splendid shape and opinion is freely expressed here that they will run up a heavy score on the 'Wildcats- This game is of unusual interest to football fans generally in that it will find a typical western team, rather than a championship one, pitted against one of the finest in the east. In the past the east-west games have usually been between championship western elevens and representative teams of the east. In view of this fact It is reasonable to think that the Arizona team will take a decisive beating. At the same time there are many who believe the Wildcats strong enough to hold and possibly defeat the Colorri"i. They base their belief on the fact tliat by defeating Whittier the Arizona team showed itself but slightly inferior to U. S. C. and the Trojans were the second strongest team in the west. ' In east-west games of other years conditions has played an important part In the showing marie by the re spective teams. The Pacific coast representatives have nearly always entered the contest in splendid shnye but the eastern elevens have either gone stale or have been overtrained. With this in mind Conch Moran has been handling his men with gloves. He has them in Southern California hut a few days and has let them take things easy at all times. They came to San Diego yesterday and worked out easily. Arizona, having had a great deal rf experience 'with Southern California climate, kept away from the sunny south until today. Today they ran signals and tomorrow will do the same. The "Wildcats" look to be in superb condition and they figure to make he final quarter their strongest one. It would be a very strange thincr if Arizona should defeat Centre. The Danviile team, with Roberts, one of Walter pamp's first Ail-American ends, and Po McMillan, third Ail- American quarter, is perhaps one of the strongest teams that evrr played in the southwest and they will be at least a three-to-one favorite Mond.-iy. At the same time the IVnn-State-Vnivcrsity of Washington game should not he forgotten. Washington certainly is no stronger, if as strong as Arizona, and yet the I.emon Yel low liclrl the dittany Giants to a 21-to-0 score. If Washington could do this, what can Arizona do to Centre? This question will hp answered to the sat isfaction of all Monday afternoon. TEAM THAN I J s 1 Uk . A DELICATE. ANT 51EKPER 0UW WTrt NERVES Or By Robert L. Riplty "I never take any phsyical exer cise it effects my stroke," drawled a delicafe and slender youth as he reclined languidly in his chair.. "The slightest exertion throws me off my game. I must have rest," con tinued twenty-two-year-old Ralph Greenleaf, the greatest pool shooter the game has ever known. A delicate and slender youth but with nerves of steel. This frail young man is a bundle of highly sensitized nerves attuned to. the most delicate touch and contio'. His mastery of BILLY ALGER TO Ralph Pena will meet Billy Alger in a ten-round main event at the Kighth street arena next Monday afternoon. This announcement was made last night after the Legion matchmaker waited several days for a final answer from Gene Cline. Less than one hour after the deal was closed with Pena. Cline's manager wired acceptance of the terms and requested , tickets, but Pena was signed and Cline lost his chance, Alger will leave El Paso tomorrow evening, coming directly to Phoenix, where he will finish training. Pena is training at Los Angeles and will leave the coast city tomorrow morn ing. . Pena fought Ira O'Xell a ten-round draw several weeks ago and is rated one of the best welters in the south west. He can hit and ha proved in his fight with Ira that he can take a hard wallop without flinching. Alger is conceding a few pounds to Pena, but Alger's wonderful iin provement during the past six month.-, has given him a big edge over the majority of southwestern light weights. He is willing to meet Pena at 142 pounds and Ralph can make the stipulated poundage with ease. Pena made his start in Arizona about the time Alger opened his ring career. Both boys have worked their wav up the pugilistic ladder, but Al ger's showing has been more spec tacular through his bouts with promi- rnent boxers. Pena has been doing his heavy work on the coast, while Alger plays the southwest. They both have many friends and admir ers in this part of the country and the bout will draw from all parts of the state. The preliminary bout3 will be com plete tomorrow afternoon and will be ready for the final announcement of the card at that time. The card will be staged at the Eighth street arena next Monday af ternoon. o BUH HURLER MOVES UP FLA 1 X V I E W, Neb., Dec. 15. Earl Bramsen of this plaije, who was a sensation last year as a pitcher in amatenr baseball clubs of northeast ern Nebraska, has been signed to play with the Sioux City Western league club next season. The Wildcats know real footbalt, and, what is more important still, know how to fiKht. They aim to start strong and finish stronger. For many years the University of Arizona has always met one of the strongest of the Southern California conference teams and they have never failed to give a mighty good account of themselves. They play rugged, hard football and whether they win or lose will give the Danville team a mighty tough battle. San Diego will practically close ur shop to attend the game. The seat sale in the southern city has been unusually heavy and many Los Angeles fans are now in this city to attend the Ram. The fact that Roberts has been selected on Camp's All-American makes the Centre team an unusually heavy drawing card. Los. Angeles Examiner. BOX RALPH PENA NEW YEAR'S DAY AS RIPLEY SEES HIM iTcoke " TtZi HE MADE A HlGrt RUN of igo Trtis EAR Xo other top-notcher in the sport the pocket billiard table is complete. He pocketed 180 balls in succession last October and has frequently made runs of more than 150. Oreonleaf has been champion since 1919 and has defended his title successfully twenty-two times since then. Greenleaf was born' in Monmouth, Illinois, and was famous as -a "boy wonder," playing Bennie Allen for the title wjien only II years of age. He is absolutely uniristructcd and acquired the game naturally. SI II VlO Today's Sport Angle If Clyde Milan is appoitned man ager of the Washington club it will mean that three of the American League leaders in 1321 will be star outfielders.. That will be a bit out of the ordi nary, as outfielders are rather the exception as big league managers. Tris Speaker of the Cleveland team has enjoyed great success during his regime as manager. He won a pennant and a world series in 1910. In 1921 with a team that suffered badly as to pitching he was a con tender all the way. Ty Cobb at Detroit Is the other star outfielder to assume the man agerial rains of a big league club. In his first year asa leader, Cobb advanced his team a position higher than the previous year. He is of the belief that a strengthened infield will enable him to finish in the first division this year. Who will succeed George Mc Bride at Washington? That is the question that is puzzling Washing ton fans and American League sup porters in general. Clyde Milan has 'been prominently mentioned. A year ago no one would have given Milan the slightest considera tion as a manager. If any one had mentioned the possibility to even Milan, he would have scoffed at the very idea. Kate very often decides one's destiny. Last year when an injury forced McBride out of the game, it was necessary that some one take charge of the club while he was under the doctor's care. Milan being X?: .w kS - -Yr Y ' - r?- 'Tr T" MAKING IT A FAMILY AFFAIR Benny Leonard, realizing he will not be lightweight champ of the world forever. Is training bis younger brother, Joe, to annex the title when he passes it on. lie probably was inspired by Jake Schaefer, whose training made Jnke, Jr., the billiard champ ot the world. ' Pa line is quite so juvenile appearing as Greenleaf. He Is very good look ing, fair of complexion, wide gray eyes, more slender even than young Jake Schaefer .and. even more dap per in his raiment, and looks much more like eighteen than his twenty two years ol ago. He carries his favorite cue around tenderly In a little leather case like a miniature golf bag. His almost dally exhibition playing furnifhs all the practice and exer cise he needs. He has estimated the veteran in the lineup, had the position thrust on him. The club wasn t going very well at the time. It didn't seem as if Milan would be able to make much headway. The club won the first game played under his direction, then the second and third.. Milan became intensely serious. The play ersassumed the same attitude. They wanted him to make a good show ing. .The club won 11 straight games with him in charge.. The success caused Milan to have managerial ambitions. I am sure he would ac cept if the position was offered. The records show that catchers have predominated as managers. In fielders are a close second, and out fielders nex: in ordr. If Milan is appointed, the Ameri can League will present a rather unusual list of managers, three of them being star outfielders. o PRESIDENTS AT KAYSEE KANSAS CITY, Mo.. Dec. 25.

He smokes as much a he wants and ha no particular set of training rules except resting and sleeping.. Greenleaf plays three-cushion bil liards, too. last week defeating Do Oro in a match. Greenleaf hopes to go abroad in 1912. In Kngland he will find bigger "pocket bllliardr tables and smaller balls, but they should be pie for him. Holiday Baseball Game Called Off Account Of Rain Baseball fans contented themselves yesterday by attending a special meeting of the hot stove league when the Christmas rains prevented the White Sox and Giants from staging their scheduled came at Eastlake park. The same teams are booked for another game this afternoon, but un less the second story leak is stopped before noon, there is little likelihood of the game being played. Unless the sun comes out with In creased brightness this morning, the field will be in no condition for a game. However, the athletes are willing to take a chance and will be at the park ready to do battle, unless the rain continues. o A new type of airplane wing, which the Inventor claims will practically revolutionize flying, considerably im pressed high officials of the British Air Ministry at a recent trial In Lon don. The new wing is shaped and pointed at the tins like those of a hawk, giving a minimum of resist ance. It attained the remarkable speed of 120 mues an hour when fitted to an ordinary airplane fuse lage and engine of no special horse power. o Valuable farm lands are being burned up by fires which have been raging in the peat swamps near Moy- cock. North Caiolina. for the past month. In many places the fire has eaten down to the clay subsoil. 10 feet under the sdrface. The burned section will be useless for cultivation and probably will become one of the many lakes which dot the great dis mal swamp. o Skunks as household pets are rais ed by a farmer near Crystal springs. Mississippi. A simple operation removes a small gland which secrets an objectionable odor. They are the most easily domesticated of all wild animals. They are cheap to sup port, are insect feeders and good mouscrs.

Is in the city ready for the fray. Hock bone will work out at the Coliseum during the afternoon and interested fans are invited to come down to the First street show house and get a line on the colored lad. young Mike has been working daily at the Coliseum and will lay otf this afternoon to give Hockbone the stage. Mike is Jn good shape for the 24 tnlnute grind and predicts he will atop Hockbone as he stopped every opponent who faced him this year. He does not expect to have things coming his wsy as soft as the other starts, but he Is confident he, will stop the Tucson boy before the fans leave their seats at the end of the eighth stanza. The fans idolize the boy with the punch and Mike demonstrated his punching ability in his local bouts. This should be a big number and one that will bring down the house. Tiny Kef i Id is also in town ready for the six-round number with Kddie I-ovett. Tiny is always in condition for a fight and his workout st the Coliseum this afternoon will be more of a warming up than training routine. Lovett Is anxious to make good for a, chance to meet Arnold and break into main event class; he hopes to defeat Refeld decisively this evening to make good for his friends and admirers and clear his record with- the Prescott boy. The betting odds are running about even on the Hockbone-Mike bout, with Mike the favorite in some quar ters. Mike's knockout wallop makes him a favorite, but Hockbone s ciev erness and speed will balance Mike's batting average. Young Douglas holds a alight ad vantage over Wildcat Johns in view of his recent knockouts. Johns is i tough boy. but he lacks the neces sary punch to keep him on the top. Douglas and Johns are down for four rounds.
