Chicago Boy Given Hardest Fight !
of His Career by New
Special to The Telegraph
New York, Dec. 30.—Charlie White,
the Chicago boy, lost to Young Shu
gruo on» points at Madison Square
Garden last night.
White was best man in the eighth
round, and the first round was a draw.
In all other rounds Shugrue was the
aggressor. In the tenth White looked
like a down and outer.
White towards the end of the fight
fought with desperation. Outclassed
during the early rounds, the Chicago
boxer made a rally in the closing
minutes of the battle, but Shugrue,
with the fight carefully stowed in his
favor, sidestepped his wild bull-like
rushes and came to no harm.
Shugrue Keeps A-jabbing
Shugrue kept jabbing his opponent
nil the time. White showed the ef
fect of the blows. Up to the eighth it
looked as if White was a goner.
Springing from his corner like a
tiger in the eighth, White pounced up
on Shugrue. His whirlwind rights
shook the New York boxer's frame;
' his left jabs rocked Shugrue's head.
He tried to produce a "haymaker,"
but Shugrue was calm and again side
stepped the wild, frantic rushes. This
round was undoubtedly White's. Shu
grue held the Windy City boy at his
distance in the ninth. The last round
proved Shugrue a complete master of
the situation, although White was the
, leader. The fight was Shugrue's. He
fought harder, displayed better judg
ment and proved cool and collected
under the most trying circumstances.

Minor Changes May Come Later;
One Fatality Reported by
Special to The Telegraph
Chicago, 111., Dec. 30.—Football
rule makers In session yesterday de
cided that no changes were necessary.
A few minor details may be revised,
but important alterations are not
likely to be made.
Walter Camp, of Yale, attended the
conference and discounted any idea of
material change in the football rules.
"The present rules have developed a
game which allows full scope for in
dividual excellence in the player," he
said. "They are well understood by
the public, they are thoroughly un
derstood by the players and the
sporting writers have grasped their
every detail. Under those circum
stances there seems to me to be no
good reason for any material change."
The report of the committee on
football fatalities, showing that only
one of the thirteen deaths accredited
to football in the past year was of a
trained college player, was accepted,
but the recommendation of the com- i
mittee that it would be discharged
from further consideration was disre
garded and instead the executive com
mittee was empowered to consider the
advisability of extending the work of
the fatalities committee to include
deaths from all forms of sports, in
cluding hunting, canoeing, swimming,
baseball and skating, so that a defi
nite defense might be made to the
charge that football is a brutal sport.

other three early in the second ses-1
sion. Cornell got its lone tally near,
the end of the game.
Princeton played a superior all
around brand of hockey and had the!
game won once the second half was
well under way. Although they were j
able to score only once in the first;
hall", the Tigers outplayed the up-|
Staters in this session and came on
with a rush early in the second half
that was not to be denied.

Quite the most remarkable athletic family in the world at the present time is found in Y'onkers, N. Y. —the
Gordons. Willie, Louis, and Freeland Gordon have been cutting great capers on the cinderpath of late. A
year ago all were novices, but to-day Willie and Louis hold championships won in national competition, and
Freeland is conceded to be ready for the honor, and far away the most promising runner of the three.
It's not a hard task to find three athletes in one family, but three brother champions at the middle dis
tance game at the same time is indeed a rarity. Jimmy Lee, former Boston professional runner, who has
coached the Gordon brothers from the time they broke their novices, figures that the three, at their best, would
all finish within five yards in a three-quarter mile race. Willie Gordon won the Baxter mile race from Abel Ki
viat at the New York Athletic Club games last winter. He has a record of 4.21 for the mile, Louis has run the
half mile in 1.57 and Freeland has a record of 4.23 for the mile.
Freeland, the most promising of the Gordons, has a style not just unlike that of John Paul Jones, the great
Cornell runner. He runs with a long sweeping stride which with the proper development may make hini one
of the greatest milers this country has ever turned out. Just like Jones, too, Freelan'd Gordon, despite bis won
derful natural ability, is not so keen for running. It has always been something of a task to get Freeland
out to run. He's one of those fellows that possess great natural ability in a sport in which their intrest is just
a little more than lukewarm.

derstand them at all. Mr. Bispham will

The Motion Pictures of the European
War that are to be exhibited at the
Majestic Theater, beginning Monday,
for three days, are the most remarkable
films that have ever been exhibited in
Harrisburg. They show with elo
quence the misery of war, as well as
making clear the methods by which
modern warfare is waged. One looks on
while German shells work havoc in the
streets of Termond, Alost and the
crowded squares of Antwerp. The ad
vances and retreats of the Belgians,
the crossing of bridges under heavy ar
tllierv lire, the digging of trenches in
the faco or a German advance, and the
removal of dying and wounded soldiers
by the Red Cross ambulances are
among the vivid pictures of actual war
fare. The (light of refugees from the
vaMous Belgian villages and from
Antwerp are pitiful evidences of the
horrible results of the present war.—
This afternoon, on the Orephum
stage, immediately after the matinee,
Marie Ellne. the child actress of mov
ing picture fame, was the little hostess
of a stage reception that the manage

of the little girl could see her in real
life instead of "reel" life. Little Mary

River Wall and Dam May Not Be
Completed in Time For
July 4 Fete
Uncertainty regarding the comple
tion of the river wall will delay the
proposed improvement celebration
from July 4 to September, is the
opinion expressed by Henderson Gil
bert, president of ~ the Harrisburg
Chamber of Commerce to-day.
When Mr. Gilbert was asked how
soon the Chamber of Commerce would
start plans, he said: "N&t very soon.
We cannot do anything until we know
when the improvements will be ready.
The completion of the river wall will
be held up, I understand, and the city
can give me no definite information
as to when it will be completed. The
river dam cannot be finished until the
wail is completed.
"I had hoped to take up the plans
early in January and have the big
celebration in July, *but it looks very
much now as if we cannot celebrate
until September. It would be folly
to plan for a celebration in July and
not be able to have it at that time.
As soon as something is known defi
nitely about the completion of the im
provements, the Chamber of Com
merce will get busy."
