weight. In a fifteen-round bout at
x Ardmore. Pat O'Connor is down as
tho man who must decide between
these two lads of tho squared circle.
Lowe's" record is so well known
here that little need bo said, save
that he is in "excellent fettle and
ready to carry his opponent along at
top speed to the very end of the bat
tle. Xowe is a most conscientious
trainer, andtoday ho hopes to win
largely through his good physical
Cortez has been winding up his
work in the Capital for several days,
and all who saw him were amazed
at his speed. Cortez does not lack
cleverness, but he depends more upon
a rushing, slambang style of milling
to bring him the victory.
They've Met Before.
Lowe and Cortez have battled fre
quently before, three times at Ard
more. Each battle has been a hot
one from the start and on one or
two occasions the fans disagreed with
the referee when the little fellow
from Brooklyn was not called a win
ner. His aggressiveness and willing
ness to take a wallop to land one has
always made friends for "him.
The principals in the itar attraction
weighed in at 10 o'clock today, and
"then prepared to rest before going to
the club. They are due to enter the
rt'ig about 4 o'clock.
Local Lad In Ring.

talent. Is one of the performers in the
semi-final, a ten-round affair at 1-S

several times at Ardmore, and has a
large following..

mix-up is expected to satisfy the wild
est fan.
"Toots" Brown, king of battle-
royals in this section of the -country,
will be found at his task of driving
his enemies from the ring in a four
round battle-royal. This event is
booked itor 2:30 o'clock.
O'Connor Is Referee.
P. F. O'Connor, veteran referee, is
carded to officiate in the main bout,
and probably in the semi-final as well.

BALTIMORE, Jan. 1. Jetf Smith,
of New Tork, and Frank Mantell, of
Pawtucket, R. L, middleweights, are
carded for the fifteen round feature
battle at the American A. A. today.
The match takes on added interest
because Smith is out with an offer to
meet Les Darcy, the Australian, pay

nothing for himself. Smith stopped

Iron today. 'it Is estimated that 22,000
spectators w'll see the tussle between
one of the best Eastern 'e.Ievens and
easily the best, to be found on the
Pacific coast.
From a national viewpoint the game
is the most important of the season,
for it brings together on the gridiron
the East and, West, and will go far
toward settling the agitated question
which plays the1 more scientific sys

Experts here beliavs it would be
Impossible to find more representative
teams or better exponents of the two
Styles of football. The Blue and Red
team of old Penn Is unquestionably
lightning fast, and its practice shows

Both coaches are sending their foot

says that Crane is. perfectly compe

Oregon is in the best condition of
the season. Bill Hayward, the train
er, thinks that his men, are in. as fine
fighting trim as when they met and
defeated Washington State, and "In
better shape than for any other game
of the year.
Last week several rumors were cur
rent that the Easterners were not
keeping training, and were looking
forward to the game as a huge Joke.
These rumors are branded as false by
the players who were said to have
broken rules. Coach Folwell said:
"Yes, I have heard reports that my
team la not in fighting trim, and I
want to kill those rumors here and
now." x
Folwell Conndent.
The coach goes further and pre
dicts a Pennsylvania victory.
"I will go as far as to say," He con

tomorrow's game. We are going to

Fight Darcy for Nothing.

want to meet Les Darcy badly, .for he
Is. willing to give the Australian. $12,
500 and take nothing for himself Just
for the opportunity of battling the
Antipodean middleweight champion.
Max Blumenthal, Smith's manager,
has issued a formal offer to Darcy and
is now waiting reply. '
Smith defeated Darcy in five rounds
at Sydney, Australia, January 23, 1915.
On May 29 of the same year Darcy
won on a foul from Smith in two
It is rumored .that Darcy Quite in
that first fight, and. In order to retain
his popularity with the fans, allowed
the second battle to be "framed up."
If this is so. Darcy will do ,well to
take on Jeff Smith first.
Sporting Gossip
Ought to be a real battle when
Lowe meets Cortez today at. Ardmore.
It is doubtful if "Chick- Evans
will do the Cubs any good next spring
When he undertakes to teach them
the "golf swing" to increase their
batting efficiency. There is no rule
for a good batsman. If you delight
In the poetry of motion, you will en
Joy watching Ty Cobb at the plate,
but If you know 'your baseball, you
will remember thi-t Georgo Stone's
crude style brought him the batting
championship one season. Most .good
batsmen are of the swinging type1,
but .Willie -Keeler led them, all and
never awujg in his life. His chop
ping style proved Quite as good as
the swinging style. In other words,
batsmen are born, not made.
It is interesting to note that only
one real -unite heavyweight cham-pion:-Jess
Wlllard has come to Jhe
front in America in six years.
If Oregon defeats Penn today at
Pasadena's 'Tournament of Roses
listen 'to the old seem-saw 'arguments
about 'the relative values of Eastern
and .Western football Penn, coached
by Bob Ksslwell, plays typical Eastern
football. Oregon, coached by Bezdek,
former star fullback at Chicago Uni
versity, plays Western football. This
argument1 started, as far as can be
recalled, when "Hurry Up" Tost's
wonderful Michigan scoring ma
chines began running wild And yet,
in most of their contests with East
ern elevens, the Michigan teams have
not done so well. Few Western teams,
barring Michigan, have played
enough football in the East to war
rant their comparison with the sea
board teams, but It is a topic always
interesting and so the Penn-Oregon
game is sure to start a lively argu
ment. At last "Big Ed" Walsh Is to retire
from baseball. Many fans are sure to
Iss him.
I Ui the Carroll Institute runners
ng part in the South Atlantic A. A.
cross-country race today at Baltl-
e, all Idle chatter about "unfairness
to Washington," etc., etc.. should
cease. Washington athletes arc under
no obligations whatever to take part In
races anywhere under the sun. It Is
quite ridiculous for any one- to howl
with pain before they are hit It offi
cials are unfair during the running of
a race, or races, that is one thing. But
to complain beforehand is quite some
thing else again. Here's hoping Car
roll cops the honors, but If they don't
let's not talk about 1L
Ban sas Garry'll be re-elected. That
settles one puzzle.
Les Darcy, now that Georges Carpen
tler says he will be unable to come
across the pond for many months. Is to
enter vaudeville and then take on some
of his many challengers. Les is a clever
chap. He learns the American boxer's
habits rapidly. The American boxer Is
always willing to cop the easy money
and no easier way can be found than
to parade around the country with a
vaudeville troupe. Darcy may be all
his friends claim him, but his vaude
ville life will cease abruptly unless he1
proves It by facing some of our middle
weights. The whole confounded pack
Is now barking at his heels.
Buffalo gets the national Junior in
door A. A. U. championships, and then
fails to get entries.
J. Ferdinand Poggenburg has pass
ed on, but his example is sure to live.
For most of his fifty-one sears Pog
genburg devoted practically all of
his time In building up a love for bil
liards 'among amateurs. He traveled
all over the land, giving exhibitions
of his own skill and teaching and
training others the secrets of the
balk-line pastime. In all his years he
must have worked for much good, and
his death leaves a vacancy none other
can fill.
Harry Frazee evidently means to
pet Carrlgan If it takes all the profits
of the opening-game.
The fact that 3,200, studeru from
various colleges, camped at Platts
burg last summer, were adjudged "pa

a crying shame and brings discredit
to colleges, as well as schools. Start

While the ancient game has made
tremendous strides In this country
during the past'years, no State In the
Union has had such a remarkable
constructive campaign completed
w lthin a single year as Florida. More

Tampa, Jacksonville. Miami, and
others there are excellent opportuni
ties for the golfer within easy walk

stepped away from civilization, are
reached over excellent, hard roads on
which the State has been expending
more than $13,000,000 within, the last
two years.
