In Game With Collegians To
morrow Night When Kelly
and Robeson Play.
With two men such as Kelly and
Robeson In tbelr lineup, the Colle
gians of New Brunswick, who will
play the local T. M. H. A. team here
tomorrow night, should furnish the
most interesting game yet Been on a
local court this season. Followers of
basketball have no doubt read of the
victory of the Rutgers live on Monday
night over the star Tale quintet. Ac
counts of the game, which was play
ed on the New Brunswick court and
resulted with the 6core It-ll, give
Kelly and Robeson much of the credit
for winning the contest. These two
forwards are making a wonderful
showing this year, being stars on the
court as they were on the gridiron.
The other members of the Colle
gians team will be Togo Miller, the
crack forward of the Amboy Ave;
Budnack, one of the best men on the
Company Ε team, and Perry, another
Rutgers man of no little ability.
Playing with Amboy will be the
usual men. Leo fichwarts and Jack
Miller will occupy the forward posi
tions; Harry Bchwartz will play cen
ter and Kaplowitz and Sber or Du
bow guards.
Tonight the Y. M. H. A. seniors are
traveling to Paterson, where they are
going to play their second game of
the season on a foreign court. The
first game they played away from
home resulted in a defeat, the Hobo
ken Y. M. H. A. registering the de
feat. As a preliminary to tonight's
big game thelocal Y. W. H. A. team
will meet the Passaic Y. W H. A.
quintet. The local players and root
ers are going by way of auto bus,
leaving the Y. M. H. A. building at ·

of th« season made a wonderful «how.

■old spirit however and are expected

The other senVor game on Friday
night will be between the South Ara
boy John Street Methodists and the
Second ÉHmrpeou Μ. Β. team. Th·
Somith Anxboy team have been unable
to win a game as yet this season but
are <ieservlng at oorasMerabl· credit
for the gameness they have shown by
keeping In the league. In spit· of the
fart that they are handicapped in
having no place to practice, and that
they must come to this city in all kind;
of weather to play, this team has been
one of the assets otf the league and
promisee to be a nucleus for a much
wtronfi-er team next year. The Sec
ond Methodists who are now in sec
ond place do not expect to have trou
ble in winning another game. This
game will start at 9:20 o'clock.
The Junior games "Will find the two
Presbyterian teams playing and the
Methodists clashing with the Baptists.
The g*une in which the Baptists were
defeated by the First Presbyterians a
lltitle over a week ago doos not count
and must 'be played over owing to the
Ineligibility of one of the Presbyte

and First Presbyterians ti· for flrit

Keeping in Trim.
The members of the Amboy Five
are now fast petting in trim for their
game here Saturday night. Who their
opponents will be has not been an
nounced as yet, but It ia certain that
a strong combination of players will
be secured to combat them. Since
'Togo" Miller and "Blackie" Regan
have been kept out of th· Amboy five
lineup owing to injuries "Jiinnier"
Wight and "Da" Macan have been
playing In their places. These two
players havç been making good with
the local championship claimants
and will probably be used often.
The other members of th# team

to be able to meet anything that Man
ager Regan signs up for the locale to
Saturday night's game was a dem
onstration of what the local quintet
can do, the visitor· proving no match
for them whatsoever, although they
Tvere expected to give an exhibition of
some fast work.
Basketball fans are anxious that
the Amboy Five take on a team which
will give the spectators some thrills,
such as the Company Ε same, when '
the second half ended in a tie making
It necessary to play an additional -
five minutes. The soldiers won, but I
it was a game which the Amboy FIvp ;
could well be proud of.

CAMP SHERMAN O., Jan. 9:—Among the most instructive of a-th
etle activities in army training camps Is boxing.
For when he is boxing the soldier learns the fundamentals of bayonet
»ork in addition to the physical benefit he derives from it.
PracticaJly every bayonet thrust is similar to some common blow
mown to boxln*, the feet, body and arms assuming the same positions in
A number of great boxers, including several world champions, have
rone to army oamps to Instruct the Bammies in the fundamentals. As a
reneraJ rule no attempt has been made to make finished boxers of the
nen—they are simply shown the fundamentals on which boxing is based.
I bayonort Instructor then shows the bayonet thiuete and between the two
nstructlone the rookie learne his bayonet work more easily and at the
>ame time is thoroughly trained in the science of .^lf-defense.
Johnny Kllbane, featherweight champion of the world and one of the
freatasrt of scientific boxers, past or present, is instructor at camp here,
^is work has been remarkable. His classes, numbering hundreds, go
hrough their drills perfectly, although they have only been under Me
fuidance tor a few months.
The pictures taken showing Kllbane's instructions In boxing and com
MLrlng them with the regulation bayonet drills were taken at Camp Sher
nan in a driving snowstorm.
Kllbane's pupil, in this case, is Marty Delmore, an Ohio boy, who was
luite a skillful amateur boxer before he entered the army.
A few ciaye itg-o Branch Rickey. the
facetâoiis president of the St. Ix>uls
-ardineJs, was in a humorous mood
rnd d&ckied to teJl the world just what
tie would take for hie bright shining
star, Rng-ers Horasby.
To Chicago the magnanimous Rick
ey offered HorMlby for $100,000 arid
Pitchers Grovcr Alexander and J:m
To New York he consented 1o trade
Horneby for a. cash consideration
(amount unknown) and'\ players
Fletclier. Kauiff, Burns and Shupp.
Of coarse these offers were not made
ία earnest It was Ju»t Rickey's wa/
of teliing that Hornfby was not for
sais at any price which would t>e con
ridered reasonable to anyone else
But there was something to think
ibout in tile two offers and it dates |
track eererul years in baseball.
Alone about 1908 the New York
Oiajrts ipaid Ind^inapolis something
tike $12,500 for Rube Marquard.
Tiie baseball world eat up in as
tooieliiTvent. Marquard was the high
est priced baseball player who had
ever been 1>ougrht or sold.
That was the beginning of the era
of buying ballplayers; an era which!
continues and is coating men who j
would b'.'iid up championship ball I
clufce thousands of dollars every year
Marty O'Toole was fhe next bl?r sale.
Marty brought $22,500 on the market.
Larry Ciiappelle was the next to com»
from minors at a fancy price.
ThenOoimte Mack decided to break
up Me wonderful ball cl-ub an<l the
climax came when he disposed oi Ed
die Collins for $60,000.
This was the greatest deal in base
ball until Char lee Weeghman came
alone this fall end bought Alexander
and Killefer for a prioe estimated at
from 17 5,000 to $80.000. although Tit"
the meantime Trls Speaker wee sold by
Bovton to. Cleveland for a price said to .
equal that paid for Collins
Ie there a limit?
Probably not eo long as men in|
baseball are willing to pay money for |
ballplayer* who will give them a pen- j
nant winning team.
The only thing improbable about ·
Rickey's offer ti that he should ask
for valuable player» in addition to a ι
lot oi coin. The com—that is any,
amount within the wildest kind of.
reason—probably wrjuld be forthcom
ing if the player was wanted badly I
enough, lb at the man who 1» after a I
championship will not trade hie good I
