Fourth St FRIDAY EVENING. ln the old Cleveland Athletic Club on tho night of the battle, and the ringside laughed at him. Gans smiled slyly as he looked across the ring at the lanky light weight, but the smile left the faces of the 3,000 men in the arena be fore the first round was half finished. Grim wrinkles replaced Gans' con- I fldent smile, too, for the lanky freak : was slashing the dusky dancer at ' will and made Joe look bad as a I champion. Those who had backed Gans soon were aware of the fact that they had underrated the white man's abillty i and punching power. Made Gans Weep The second round was one of the blackest that Gans ever feathered j in his career. From the tap of the I i gong Garrard tore into Gans drove j j him about the ring and punched him fso hard that tears came to Joe's ! ! eyes. | In the last minute of the second j I round Gans went into a clinch in the i middle of the ring to save himself ] j from tliesevere punishment, and j ! when they broke away Garrard, | 1 swinging a terrific left to Gail's jaw. J j sent the champion to the floor. Garrard thought he was the new j j champion and turned away to his j corner. s I The crowd stood up and started to j I move toward the exits as the referee j counted up to nine, but Gans man ' aged to* get to his feet, and as he i stood there dazed the bell saved ' him. ; Gans was revived in his corner, ; and after this fought the most cau | tious fight of his life. In the twelfth round Gans cut I open some old scars over Garrard's ' eyes which bled profusely, and the I latter was nearly blind in the fif teenth, but was standing Gans off when the chief of police ordered the fight stopped. Many Cliicagoans who saw Gans j fight Garrard and later battle Nel- J son 45 rounds, declare that Gans j was more firiglitened and fought j more cautiously against Garrard | than he did when he beat the Dur- . able Dane. Many efforts were made after this | to rematch Gans for another cham- [ pionship battle with Garrard, but the dusky fighter always shied clear of the freak lightweight who maul ed him so unmercifully right up to the fifteenth round. Gans has fought his last fight, but Garrard, his old opponent, looks as healthy and sturdy as ever, and be sides being a steady-going letter carrier he is able to act well the • part of a peacemaker when ever j called on.

Troch, of Vancou ver, W asli., is the best trapshooter in the land, notwithstanding his defeat by Billy Heer. is the opinion of the trapshooting fraternity along the Pa cific coast. Troch and Heer, it will be remem bered, shot a 500-target match last June as the feature event of the Northwest Sportsmen's Association tournament at Seattle, Wash. Heer won by four targets and his backers gathered in a bushel of Liberty Bonds. The sportsmen who backed Troch believe that the rightful home of those Liberty Bonds is on the west coast, and they are confident that if Troch is given another opportunity he can bring them back to their proper roosting place. The Northwest Sportsmen's Asso ciation tournament this year will be held under the auspices of the Port land (Ore.) Gun Club at Everding Park, in May, and the feature event once more will be a match between Frank Troch and a trapshooter to be decided by the country at large. In due course of time the North west Sportsmen's Association will Issue a defi in behalf of Troch, and will at that time name the conditions under which the match wil be shot. The idea at this time is to issue a challenge to any shooter in the world —amateur or professional—for a 500-target event, spread over three days. Instead of the two contestants shooting, however, three other liigh class amateurs shooters —the best that can'be procured—will be placed in the squad, making five men at the traps. Last year Troch and Heer shot alone. " There is a feeling that Troch is a better shooter in a squad than he is in a competition tn which only two are shooting. This may or may not be true, but competition in which only two are shooting better when in a squad than when participating in an individual match. Many shoot ers are much better in squad shoot ing than in Individual match shoot ing—and know some others who can break more targets the faster they shoot. Anyway, the Northwest Sports men's Association is going at the event early enough to get a number of stars on the heels of Troch before the snow gets oft the ground.

HARRISBURP Cfflfcßg TELEGRAPH Lancaster Gets Cold Feet Declining Tech Game; Soldiers Play Tonight Tech High School basketball toss ers were to open their Central Penn basketball schedule this evening, playing Lancaster High School, at Chestnut Street Hall. The varsity contest will begin at 8.15, with Dave McConnell officiating. Prior to this affair, the Sophs will oppose the Jun iors, starting at 7.30. This contest will be played to a conclusion before the big game. Scheduled to play Lancaster, the Maroons will not meet the Red Roses, but patrons will have a chance to see the Marsh Run Army Reservation team' in action. It all happened this way: After dilly-dallying around for several years, Lancaster High School finally got together five players to represent the institution in the cage. That was before they knew Tech had been making athletic history. Now they; seem to be looking for an excuse to get out of the league, or at least to keep from playing Tech, so-ffiey dropped Percy Grubb several telegrams and night letters dictating terms and refusing to play if one Carl Beck was in the same cage. The read one of these yellow letters they sent this way would lead one to think Lancaster owned the league, and that the league would just simply "bust" without them. Well, to make this story short. Beck has ceased playing with the In dependents and has donned the Ma roon. The case was placed before the executive committee of the P. I. A. A., and that body decided that playing on two teams by members of the league must stop at once. And that players who discontinue playing will be In good standing in the league. Miller, of Lebanon, has been doing the same as Beck in playihg with the Lebanon Professionals. Just AROUND THE BASES If you have a heart for bird life, put some suet out in your yard, where the feathery little ones can snatch a bite of fat, which warms their tiny bodies and is a practical lifesavor with snow on the ground and every thing frosen. Even sportsmen this season are showing a kind heart for the birds, many of them refraining from shooting quail because they are scarce. New York's new Governor, Smith, of Brooklyn, made the Gotham box ing fans happy yesterday, saying if the Republican Legislature passed a bill legalizing boxing in the state he would approve It. It Is practically certain that all DemocAts in both houses would vote to re-est iblish boxing. There are fifty-five Demo crats in the Assembly and twenty five in the Senate. With the votes of these members certain in support of the measure, it will be necessary to recruit twenty-one Republicans in the Assembly and four in the Sen ate to put the bill through and pass it on to Governor Smith for his sig nature. . CHAMPION WOMAN BOWLER . Cleveland, Jan. 10. What is claimed to be a world's record for a woman bowler was made by Mrs. Goldie Greenwald. In three game* as captain and anphor bowler of the Eagles women's bowling team. Mrs. Greenwald made 257, 210 and 265 for a grand total of 732. In the final game she made eleven out of a possible twelve strikes and was only beaten out of a perfect score by a 6-7-10 split in the third frarpe. Her score of 732 is a reco:d for the alleys, the previous high to tal, 682, being made by the proprie tor with a loaded ball. Mrs. Greenwald's team ran up a score of 2,818 to 2,745 scored by a men's team opposing it. They took two out of the three games.

The Teeh manage ment refused to allow Beck to play so long as he participated With the Independents. Now thut the Tech athlete has decided to place school spirit first, it would r>e unfair to him to keep him out of the Tech lineup. At that rate, he would be playing with neither quintet. Tech is anxious to meet Lancaster and would have shown the visitors every courtesy. But when it comes to dictating terms, especially con cerning the contest in this city, Tech wants something to say. The rules of the P. I. A. A. gover l the Central Penn League, with the executive committee in control. With consent coming from that committee making Beck and Miller eligible, providing they cease to play at cncc, Tech is breaking no rules of the league, and Carl Beck is going to play. Should Lancaster decide not to take a chance, patrons will see just as good a contest with the Marsh Run Army Reservation team as a substitute. There will positively be, a game and Carl Beck will play.' Johnny Beck will also play. This lad] is a whirlwind and the guard who tries to cover him won't suf.or in the least from the zero weather.
