ANDY PUD1SH WINS BOUT Whitey Nelson, of Rahway, did not box Mike Mazie, of Stateu Is land, before the members of the Lib eral A. C. yesterday afternoon as pei schedule announced. Nelson is sup posed to have hurt his hand while training in the last few days and for this reason, it was announced that the bout was off. Manager Joe Mc Nulty procured Patty Kimell, ot Newark, to substitue for his man but Mazie refused to box this mit artist claiming that Kimell was heavier. Johnny McNally, of New York, final ly received the assignment to fill tht> bill against Mazie and he did it in very poor style. McNally hit the floor four times In the first round and finally left for the "dreamland' in the same period. Andy Dudish, the "Pride of Fords" defeated Joe Rosso, of Rosebank, in one of the best bouts of the day. Rosso seemed to have about ten pounds on the Fords .boxer but Dud ish did not stop at that for he show ed class in landing his blows against his higher and heavier opponent. There were several other bouts, which afforded considerable interest to those present. IN THE WORLD OF SPORT Joe Rivers May Be Ritchie's Next Opponent.

Ptrth Amboy Soccar Eleven Putt Up Strong Opposition in New Brunswick. FINAL SCORE IS 5-4 Rafaree Does Not Allow Lo cals a Goal Scored When Tally is 4-4. Without doubt the most exciting game of the year in which the local soccer team has been a i>art was staged in New Brunswick yesterday afternoon when the county seaters defeated the Perth Amboyans by a 6-4 tally. The players of the de feated combination claim the refe ree showed partiality whenever a poor decision would mean a score for the college town aggregation. This is the first complaint sounded by the local soccerites and so fans may put some stock in their "kicks." With but few minutes to play and the tally at 4-4, the Perth Amboy eleven carried the ball down the field and put the pellet through across the goal. However the referee, for some reason unknown to the locals, would not allow the play and the score still remained at "4 all." In the final stages of the engagement the college town boys scored a goal and thereby won the game, according to the deci sion of the referee. There is considerable rivalry on between the Perth Amboy and New Brunswick elevens and a return match will be arranged as soon as the weather can be depended upon. The defensive playing of Wilson and Gilfillan and the all around work of Kempson, together with the ag gressive attack of Brabyn, Smith, C. Bundler and Binder were features of the warfare as staged by the locals. Following are those who com prised the local lineup: Wilson, Gil fillan, Roberts, Kempson, Hiban, C. Bundler, Brabyn, Atkinson, P. Smith, Binder and Lightliolder. The goals by the locals were scored as follows: Brabyn (2), Smith (1), Atkinson (1).
