Barne?, Hagen, or any of the other great exponents of the game in
this country. At the new Indian Spring Golf Club formal opening,
Walter Hagen, present British open champion; Joe Kirkwood, Aus
tralian wizard; Wilfred Reid, the home pro and two years ago a

CARPENTIER THOUGHT SIKI A SPREAD
WE received a letter from Mr. H. P. Raleigh, the Harper's Bazaar
illustrator, yesterday. Mr. Raleigh saw Siki beat Carpentier in
Paris, but doesn't think the winner is anything to write about.
He says that Siki is a quitter, as he kissed the canvas without being
hit, and shook like a leaf during the fight.
"He would be meat for Dempsey." says the writer, "and no real
opponent for a good man in the States."
He encloses a clipping from'
the Daily Mail, which says in
part:
In a long experience of boxing
I have never seen a man bo com
pletely tragic as was Carpentier
this amazing afternoon. So thor
oughly exhausted was he that he
had to be borne on an attend
ant's shoulders to his dressing
room. He was like an empty
sack. There was not an ounce
of power in him; fortunately he
was too far gope to realize how
tremendous had been his fall. He
entered the ring an idol; he left
it a wreck.
.Started As a ?lest.
CARPENTIER, nicer-groomed
than I have ever seen him,
climbed into the ring wear
ing an expression that was elo
quent both of contempt and
boredom. He arranged his band
ages with an air that said plainly
that he was already wearied; that
he had simply turned up to keep
faith with his bond. He remind
ed me of a boxer in a gymnasium
on the last day of his training;
he nodded here and there, smiled
at his friends, waved to closer
acquaintances, did everything
that, a man does when he is in
a hurry to get done with a rather
tiresome appointment.
The sixth round lasted one
minute and twenty seconds. It
representad a lifetime of thrills.
Carpentier had to be thrown out
of his stool; siki left his with the
violence of a gale. He was, so
far as I could see, unmarked.
Carpentier was beyond descrip
tion. It is better, as a matter of
fact, to gloss over his state. All
that need to be said is that his
eyes were gone, his lips were
twice their normal size, he waa
covered with blood, while his
stamina had reached the vanish
ing point.
But for 80 second he fought
with the fury of a savage. No
boxing this; it was the kind of
thing that must have been popu
lar when men settled their dis
putes with stone hatchet?. It
was primeval, a throw-back to
earliest days. Siki. was in hi?
glory. He had forsaken defense.
He was drunk with the prospect
of victory, and so he fought
madly, terrifically. The end
came when Carpentier suddenly
collapsed and settled on his side.

ILLY RODENBACK, former
amateur heavyweight champ,
told us about the value of
condition in bouts the other night.
"I was up at the New York
Athletic Club a few years ago,"
piped Bill, "instructing the boys
in the hit and get-away game.
"Two big, husky fellows came
in, put on gym suits, grabbed the
gloves and went to it. For half
an hour they just socked and
socked and not once did they
they stop for a rest. Others in
the gym stopped work to watch
it. Not sore at one another, you
know, but rough. First one would
take the lead, then the other,
until they were about exhausted.
Finally one fellow sat down and
taking off the gloves said, 'Jim,
I've gotta quit. 1'jn not in

Perhaiis the rivalry between Tech

plenty of opportunity for fiercer ac

RIVAL GRID SYSTEMS CLASH
IN COLGATE-CORNELL GAME
ITHACA, N. Y., Oct. SI.?The twenty-third football game between
Cornell and Colgate on Schoellkopf Field here today looms big on the
horizon, not only from a sentimental aspect, the meeting of two long
time friendly mais, but because it will put the Cornell eleven of
1922 to the first real tost it has experienced and also, it will be a
battle between two coaching systems that originated in the Far West,
clashed in many a strenuous gridiron conflict on the coast and then
years later were transplanted to Eastern football fields where both
are flourishing.
In other words, Cornell plays'*
football a la Doble. Colgate football
a la Besdsk. Just as a decade ago
the University of Washington team,
grounded in the Doble system,
fought many a thrilling battle with
the University of Oregon, which
lesrned Its football from Bezdek.
Pick Harlow, the new Colgate
coach, is using, according to all re
ports, the I'erin state system, no
tably the offensive formations
which Bezdek brought out of the
West and has employed with such,
great success in the East. Ths
Doble system, too, specializes on the
attack, ao that spectators of to
day's t?sale will see a brilliant ex
hibition of modern offensive foot
ball.
The full strength of CeraelT?
material ?ill be seen In this game
for the first time tiri? year.

Chuck McGuire Explains
Various Types of For
ward Pass.
By CHARLES E. ( "(HICK ">
McGlIRE.
(Form?? rni.fr.lt, of Mil? ago ?oolball
Captala and AU-American Tackle.)
CHICAGO, Oct. 21?There are
several distinct kinds ot forward
pass games and from the side linea
one cannot notice the difference oe
tween the various types used by
different coaches Oftentimes the
entire etyle ot coaching reflecta it
self in the forward pasa game.
For instance, coaching that has
for its basis the aafe. defensive
etyle of play and the coaching
which relies for its sut. ess oa the
"acore-at-any-cost" game may be
differentiated by the aerial attacK.
First, there is the passing game
which la designed only as a con
stant throw to keep the defense
worried. Little ground Is expected
to be gained. The passes are
thrown on the first, second and
third downs and from the same for
mation that runa and bucks origi
nate.
The purpose is to baffle the line
and to keep the defensive backs in
constant fear of am aerial attack,
thua preventing them from coming
up to assist th eline in stopping the
running plays.
Theae paaaea are mixed in with
the aole Idea of making the runs
and bucks more effective. In con
trast to this there Is the team
which sends its ends and backs
through the opposing Une in an ef
fort to get one of them into the
open to receive a pass. The for
mations are distinctly passing for
mations which can readily be
"called" by the defense.
Here the emphasis Is on the for
ward pass and the bucka become
effective because they are the un
expected element.
