RmeMOHETCg Spirt Comment <n All fields The New York State Athletic Commission has made a new ruling under which boxers in prelims are to get paid by the round, no fighter to get more 'than $10 per round. If there is a k. o. the winner gets paid for the number of rounds scheduled, while the loser gets his only up to the minute he kisses the canvas. Strew that sort of laws around the country thickly and maybe the can vas won't feel quite so cushion-like to the quitters. For a cushion with out the "cush” isn’t so pleasant. • * * Said the old horsehlde to the plump pigskin, Now ain’t tl\is a heluva^hc I’m in?

While you're laid away, safe as kin be, The world will be kickin’ the wind out of me. * * * Scalping Not too early to speak a piece about ticket scalping in the world series. • Especially if the two New York teams should cop, there must be strict precautions taken to guard against it. For with a one-town series thousands more fans will fight to attend all the games than if the affair was a see-saw series between cuies. Baseball can’t stand another scan dal now.

OUT I EYS Early Season Tournament to Start in About Week; Bowl ers Signing Up Now A two man bowling tournament to commence in about one week is be ing arranged by John W. McComas, in charge of the Y. M. C. A. bowling alleys. All of those desiring to en ter this tourney are requested to sign up with Mr, McComas at the "Y" by the end of the week in order that it might be definitely known how many teams will be entered. Two man tourneys have proven the most popular of any conducted on the Y. M. C. A. alleys since the opening of the association, it taking less time for the rolling of a three game match with two-man teams than with five-man teams and the Interest seems to be more intense. It is likely that the bowlers will be per mitted to choose their own partners on condition that the strongest bowl ers In the association do not join forces, leaving the weaker onea to combine. This would soon make the circuit an uninteresting affair and those far behind would most likely fall to complete their schedule. The bowlers have been allowed to choose their own partners in past tourneys of this kind and it has al ways been found that the teams evened up well. There will be a com mittee to consider all arguments and questions which might arise during the league, this committee being headed by General Secretary Walter H. Warr. Several of the “old timers” have _i. J_S____1 * .. n11n„a again after laying off all summer and this tournament is for the pur pose of getting all of the pinmen into shape for the winter season and see ing which men will be the best to represent the local Y. M. C. A. in the state bowling league this year. It is likely that the men will be given a certain time limit in which to complete their schedule of play ing every other team a three-gamo match, this time limit being fixed so that the tourney will not drag along over a long period. One month will most likely be alloted to the bowlers to complete their schedule. It is ex pected that a small entry fee will be charged of each man in order to secure funds to assist in purchasing prises for the winning team and possibly the high average man and high score man of the league as well. Mr. MoComas urges that all of those contemplating entering find partners at once and sign up with him now in order that some idea of the number of teams in the league can be secured. The members of the "Y” first team, such as Bill Pember ton, Clarence Hoffman, Edgar Mallet and Blrden Golden, will not be per mitted to team up but can take on mediocre bowlers so as not to have a "walk-away” from the rest of the entries.

That might well be the slogan of Babe Adams, veteran Pirate hurler who is leading the National League in box work and who is largely re sponsible for keeping the Pirates in the pennant race. Babe is 88. For IS years he has been feeding 'em over in the big league and for nine years before that he was in the minors. "I haven’t any special rules for keeping in shape,” he says. I eat what I want, but regularly, and I get plenty of sleep. "I have always taken good care of myself and it has mighty tyell re paid me. When other fellows with whom I started are all in, their physical powers burned up, I go along feeling like a youngster. "I love baseball, and I'm going lu nil an iuuf, a O iuv old wing will stand for it. “X don’t know why my arm holds up so well unless it's the way I grip the ball. Most pitchers, you know grip the ball as tightly as possible, thinking they can get more break on it that way. “I always have made it a prac tice to hold tl^e ball loosely. I be lieve it gives me better control, and it certainly is easier op the arm." “Anchor Men” of Giants Rons Young (left) and l*lt<l>er Art Yelif. NEW YORK—If it is consistency the Giants are depending on for copping the National League pen nant, they have it in a puzzle pitch er, Art Nehf, and a hide-lifter, Ross Young. While their work is less spectac ular than that of George Kelly or Clover Midgets Defeat Stars The Clover Midgets defeated the Jay Flynn All Stars in a game on the Lumber field grounds on Tues day afternoon by a score of 4-2. Pucci and Cuiff were in the points for the winning team, while Irving and Kertes comprised the battery for the losing combination. Man ager Flynn disputes the claim of the Clovers, setting forth that the score was tie 2-2 when the game ended in an argument. The Insets, the correct name of Manager Flynn's team .will play the Oriole Midgets on Saturday morning. Meusel, the homerun swatters of the Giants, the records show they ire the reliable sort that go for high averages when the whistle blows. For Nehf is topping the Giants in games won, while Boss is loading McGraw’s men with the dudgeon. Sacred Hearts Challenged Adam Kaczmarek, manager of :he Protection nine of South Amboy .vould like to book a game with 4he sacred Heart nine, another South \mboy combination. The Protection nanager claims that the Sacred Hearts think they are too good for :he Protections, but Manager Kacz marek expresses a belief that worse earns than the Protections have de feated the Sacred Hearts. Blazing Stars Win The Blazing Stars baseball team recently defeated the Athletic Jrs. by a score of 15-2. The Stars are without a game for Sunday. Buffalo Colored Team Plays Woodbridge Caseys Sunday Afternoon The Columbian club baseball team of Woodbridge will play the Buffalo Colored Giants a return game on the Woodbridge grounds this Sunday af ternoon.
