J 'OUTS — CARPENTIER KNOCKS OUT GEORGE COOK — SPORTS
G'YRGES retains his
EUROPEAN TITLE WHEN
HE FLOORS AUSTRALIAN
Frenchman Knocks Out Cook
With Straight Left and Two
Right Crosses.
By Associated Press
London, January 12.—Georges Car
pentier, headywelght champion boxer
of Europe, won his match here to
night against George Cook, the Aus
tralain heavyweight. He knocked
Cook out in the fourth round.
A straight left to the chin and a
right to the Jaw floored Cook for the
4 oount. He was up on one knee when
the referee. Jack Smith, finished the
count of ten, but was too late.
The weights were announced, Cook
189 pounds, and Carpentier 170
pounds.
Carp Lead* First
In the opening round Carpentier
was the first to lead, scoring with
both his left and right without a re
turn. Cook tried for a right swing,
but missed. Considerable infighting
followed, in which neither man had
any marked advantage. Cook took
a nasty blow on the ribs, but him
self scored well toward the close of
the round. /
Both men sparred cautiously at the
beginning of the second round, Car
pentier landed a left hook to the jaw
and easily avoided an attempt at a
counter. The Australian had the bet
ter of the Infighting, which ensued
and twice s^nt home hard lefts
which surprised Carpentier, who con
tinually failed to find an opening for
his right.
Up to the third round, the bout
appeared to be going in favor of the
Australian. In the third Carpentier
landed a light left to the chin, but
at close quarters Cook fought hard.
Carpentier’s best work seemed to be
t at long range.
Bout Ends In Fourth
Near the end of the round, the
Frenchman scored well with lefts and
rights to the head and body, and it
was easily his round. The Aus
tralian caught Carpentier with a blow
to the jaw after the bell had sound
ed and was cautioned by the referee.
Early in the fourth round the j
fighting was mostly at close quar
ters. Carpentier twice landed lefts
to the head and Cook scored to the
chin. The Australian then rushed
Carpentier, but only to meet with
a straight left to the jaw and two
rights to the same place, which ended
the bout. ,
There was considerable betting
prior to the fight with Carpentier the
favorite at 5 to 2.

Sunday School Cage
League Games
Tonight
The Sunday School Basketball
league will have its second weekly
fracas at the Y. M. C. A. tonight at
7:46, and fhree fast games are ex
pected when the teams go on the
floor to try their art at *oal shoot
ing. The games that were played
last Friday night were all good ones,
but owing to one of the teams for
feiting, there were only two games.
Tonight, however, all teams are be
counted on to show their wares
and the games should be mighty in
teresting from beginning to end.
Central High Cage
Team Rounding
Into Shape
The Central High school five, which
has been working out for several
weeks at the B. A. C., is now begin
ning to look like a real basketball
team, and there is a hope beginning
to rise in the Central caitip that the
Crimsons might have a team equal to
that of last year. The Cent.ralites
have not finished their schedule yet, I
but they have arranged a few games. :
and while none of them loom up as
anything in the way of a Herculean
fracas for the Meyers five, all of them
should be enough to test the
strength of the Crimsons to a great
extent.
The first game will be played Fri
day against the Shades-Cahaba High
school team, and while the Crimson."
are the favorites to win, the game
should not be a wsylk-away for them.
The Mountaineers have^ not had a
very good court to practice in, but,
even at that, they have been work
ing hard and have a team that should
make Central hustle all of the time.
Mortimer Jordan of Morris, Dora,
Wetumpka, Alliance*- Leeds. Shelby
County and Plaque are the other
teams that Central will play. All o.f
these games will be played 'at homo
and should be hard ones for the local
five, and on top of that Coach Mey
ers will have some other games for
his huskies, so the Crimson should
have a pretty tough schedule this
year.
The Crimson schedule at present U
as follows:
January 13—Shades-Cahaba.
January 21—Morris High.
January 28—Dora.
February 4—Wetumpka.
February 10—Shelby County.
February 11—Alliance.
February 17—Leeds.
March 4—Disque.

AMERICA'S BEST AMATEURS
Who is the best amateur golfer In
America and Canada today? I have
been asked to answer this question
&nd to list the first 12 amateur golf
ers of the country. I will. I have a
background of experience and ac
quaintance that should, I think, qual
ify me to undertake the task.
It is not difficult to pick the first
12 amateur players. It is not any
problem at all for me to say who is
the one best amateur golfer today.
It is. though, quite a Job to place the
others in two, three, four, five, six
order and so on down the list. It
takes pretty fine shadings of Judg
ment for me to say, for Instance,
who is the fifth best amateur in
America. In fact, it takes some
fancy skating on thin ice, but here
goes.
The Heat .Amateur
The best amateur golfer in
America; the best amateur golfer in
all the world, bar none; the finest
Jriver, the most decisive player with
Irons, a finished approacher and a
steady putter—the one outstanding
player who possesses a mastery of
every department and who has with
his skill the energy of magnificent
youth is Robert T. Jones of Atlanta.
Ga.
I place Bobby Jones first. I call
him the greatest of the amateurs,
despite the fact that he has not cap
tured a championship. I perhaps
should emphasize that my choice of
positions in the list I shall give is
based on a shot-making ability on the
part of the players named. Golf is
a game of style, of grace, of endur
ance and of other factors, but in the
final analysis games are won or lost
on the basis of shots made. The man
who can make the shots gets the
score and the championship, no mat
ter how he makes them. The basic
object is to get the ball from tee to
Mtfitff of fits Shots
Unquestionably Bobby .Tones is the
premier shotmaker of this continent,
lie has a mastery of all the shots
required, and he has the youth, the
energy and the endurance required
to make them when he needs them.
Those who may question my Judg
ment in this selection will perhaps
find reason for the question; "If
Jones has all that why doesn't ho
win a championship?’’ My answer
Is this: He will.
Some golfers have become famous
because of an unusual ability with a
few shots on courses that were kind
to them. Not so with Bobby Jones.
He has not won his titular honor be
cause the only troubles he has ever
known in a national tournament
have grown out of a too great con
sciousness on his part of the great
excellence of his own playing. A
good many times 1 have watched
Bobby struggling with all his might
to forget, just for a little while at
least, that he was a good player, t
had been all through such expe
rieinces myself, and I knew all the
pangs he was feeling. It was much !
like the first pair of long trousers—
you know the whole world ha^
stopped just to watch you, and that
great things, because of the long
pants, are expected of you. The im
mediate result of this, with a player
like Jones, is that when a shot is
less than the followers of the tour
nament match expect, the self-con
sciousness, the realization that the
ball did a little less than it had done
previously in similar shots—these
thoughts bear heavily Into the young
player’s mind and have a tremendous
effect on all his tournament play.
If I blow a shot at a tournament, for
instance, nobody pays any particular
attention to it, and that includes
myself.
iirarnru inauiemitr
T played in tournaments for years
before 1 captured a championship,
and 1 never won a championship until
I could view with utter indifference
a foozled shot in tournament play.
So long as poor shots in critical play
depressed me and upset me, the semi
finals were' as far as I grot.
Jones has always appeared at the
tournaments bursting: with the won
derful confidence of impetuous youth.
His was the boyish confidence, the
great an£. to him, completely Justi
fied confidence. Nothing but expe
rience cuuld show him the depths of
the depression that succeeds great
confidence interrupted and set back.
These spells of depression are disas
trous, and Bobby will know how to
sidestep them before many more
tournaments have rolled around.
This may be Bobby’s year. 1 rathe.*
think it will be. If he misses the
i championship this year I will know
I that he still hasn’t been able to es
cape front the consciousness of his
I own good playing. In that event ho
i may have to wait another year for
I the tile, but this is sure: Bobby Jones
1 and the amateur title are to take a
i trip to Dixie sooner or later.
I choose Jesse Quilford, present
amateur champion, as the second best
amateur in America, and give Francis
Oulmet third place. I will tell why
in a succeeding article.

GRIFFITH TO ANNOUNCE
SENATORS’ PILOT SOON
i Washington, January 12.—Roger
| Pecklnpaugh "positively will not” be
j made manager of the Senators In
I 1922, Clark Griffith, president of the
Washington club of the American
league, has declared. Pecklnpaugh,
former New York Yankee shortstop,
became a member of the local team

BY
gl HENRY VANCE
PEEPING TWO MONTHS AHEAD
The weather is more frigid right now than at any time this winter,
but at the same time Mr. Baseball Fan cannot help but realize that
the spring training season of the Barons is just a couple of months
away, and that even now Boss Moley is in Dixie shooting birds and
bull with Owner Rick Woodward in the wilds of south Alabama.
The trip south by Carlton, and the tongue wagging of Col. Quack
Smith whenever the subject of baseball is reached, leads many of
the wise fans to believe that the Barons are going to be better fixed
at the start of the 1922 season in a pitching way than has been the
case in many moons.
To begin with, it is highly probable that Phil Morrison will be
back in Birmingham for another year. True, he is the property of
the Pirates and looks like he might have a great future before him.
Still Phil hasn’t been in professional baseball a great length of time
and it is doubtful if he can make the grade in the majors his first
season out. If he fails to impress Manager Gibson in spring training
camp, he will be shipped back to Moley for further seasoning.
I',lH*rhnrd a Suit Tklng
Mik© Eberhard, who pitched
such good ball for the locals last
season and who won such a raft
of friends here, even though he
came on after the siart of the
season, is the outright property i
of the Barons and will be here
when the first tap of the gong ”
sounds for spring training.
Mike pitched grand ball for
Moley last year, and should go
even better the coming summer,
now that he has learned the pe
culiarities and weaknesses of
Southern league batsmen. Phil
and Mike will give Moley two
tried and true veterans in the
right-handed department.
Ttto Eeftles In (.'amp
Lefty Whitehlll, who pitched
such good ball for the Barons last
summer i/nd who was reported fa
vorably by Pittsburg scouts. Will
be back for another fling in the
minors before he graduates from
class A baseball and takes up his
permanent work in a major
league camp. The return of
Whltey will give Moley three de
pendable men, who have pitched
Southern league baseball and who
have measured up to all require
ments.
Recent dope on Roy Meeker,
however, would tend to show that
the former little Baron side
wheeler Is going to give someone
a run for the money in the Job
hunting department this year.
Roy worked for Mother Ryans
club In the Virginia league last
summer and was recognised as
one of the topnotch performers of
that circuit. As a matter of fact,
Colonel Quack, commenting the
other day &n the work of Meeker,
said that a Pittsburg scout trailed
his club several weeks last sum
mer, and finally wrote the Pitts
burg management that Meeker
would make a winner in the ma
jors if his size wasn't against him.
That was one on the scout, the
ivory hunter being ignorant of ths
fact that Meeker belonged to Bir
mingham—an ally of the Pirates.
The U»f of Red Dates
Red Bates, the local phenora,
who is spending: the winter at
Cliff, Just a few miles out of Bir
mingham, pitched such marvelous
ball for the Griffin, 6a., club in
the Georgia State league last
summer that Baron officials are
already coming to look upon Red
as a fixture for the 1922 campaign.
There has never been any doubt
about Red s stuff or his fast ball.
AH that was necessary to make
him a class A performer was the
brushing off of the rough spots
by a year in the bushes. Moley
figures a year under Smutter
Matthews has made Red efficient
for Southern league work. If the
lanky local comes through as ex
pected, it will mean the Barons
will get/ started on the spring
work with four dependable men
in camp, something that hasn’t
happened in years.
Mntharn Right Show Reversal
Bill Statham, the new Baron
pitcher who was swapped by the
Nashville club for Tommy Galla
gher, suffered a disastrous cam
paign while defending the Vol
colors last summer. A sore arm,
overwork and poor handling col
laborated on making Bill ineffec
• tive. The season before he grad
uated from the Augusta club in
the Sally league went to Nash
ville and won seven straight
games in the latter part of the
season. He was looked upon at
that time as nothing; short of a
marvel. When he fllWered last
year the fans couldn’t understand
what was the matter.
Moley Is hoping that his arm
will come around all right and
that, he will duplicate tho form he
showed in 1920. The Baron man
ager will go about training Bill In
a cautious way this spring, and
will not allow him to put any
stuff on the ball while tho
weather is still cool.
The local magnates think they
put over a neat coup on the Gallu
gher-Statham swap. Tommy could
never seem to get going here, and
many fans were on his neck.
When Bosses Smith and West
learned they could send him to
Nashville for Stath&m on an even
swap they lost little time In clos
ing up the deal.
Wheeler Will Not Return
it isn’t probabie that Floyd
Wheeler, who pitched such good
ball for the Barons after he came
here from New Iamdon, Conn., last
summer, will return to the Ba
ronial camp. He belonged to
Pittsburg, and the Pirates merely
sent him here to help the locals
out wrhen it developed they were
In urgent need of a winning pitch
er. Floyd will go to the Pirate
camp at West Baden in a few
weeks, and if he fails to land a
regular berth with Gibson, the
chances are he will serve in class
AA company during the 1922 cam
paign.
However, it Is known that
should Moley's prospects fail to
come through, Birmingham inay
count on aid from the Pirates.
The Pittsburglars would send one
or two winning pitchers here
should It ever come to a show
down where Moley just had to
have reinforcements.
Two Rooks Look Go«i
Early last summer Moley was
forced to send Eddie Frenick to the
Piedmont league. Eddie had a
steellike arm, and knew how to
put lota of stuff on the ball, but
he didn't have the generalship and
poise necessary in class A com
pany. From the very first day he
landed in the Piedmont league ho
began to set the loop on fire, and
he went at such a hair-raising
pace up there that Carlton is
counting on Frenick making some
right-hander hustle for a Job this
spring.
Nichols is still another man sent
to the Piedmont league who shone
with the luster and brilliancy of
a Kohinoor. Nichols joined the
Barons late and spent his time
sitting on the bench. He was a
semi-pro, and Moley. although in
need of pitchers, was afraid to
take a chance with him. There
fore he shipped him to Carolina.
Dock Newton, on the Baronial
reserve list, pastimed with the
Orlando club last season, after
being let out by Birmingham.
Dock is eligible to apply for a
berth with the Moleyian forces,
though it is not known whether
he will avail himself of the op
portunity or not. Dock is now in
the real estate business in Bir
mingham, and may become so
successful in the business venture
that he will have no desire to rt*
enter professional baseball.

MONDAY NIGHT
Ohio State GraDoler Threw
Gobar. the Hindu, In
Nashville Bout
I
OHff Binkley, who meets Strangler
Ed Lewis at the Athletic club Mon
day night In a finish match, proved
too much for Qoho Oobar, the Hindu
wrestler, a couple of ni*gtits ago in
Nashville, when he downed the Hindu
for the first fall In 38 minutes, and
after 10 minutes of wrestling for the
second fall, the Hindu was disquali
fied for repeatedly using the strangle
hold, which w'as barred.
The Hindu, who had beaten his first
> two opponents In Nashville, was given
a severe setback as he was doped by
all to win. Binkley made a decided
hit In the Tennessee city, and has al
i ready been requested to return at
an early date.
It Is hardly expected that Binkley
will beat Lewie next Monday, but it
is expected taht he will give Lewis a
merry time for awhile and It should
be an exhibition well worth seeing.
Binkley's specialty is a body-acissors
hold, which he used to such good ef
fect here against Farmer Bailey and
against the Hindu at Nashville last
night.
To look at Binkley in his ring togs,
one would think he lacks muscles,
due to his soft skin, but once In ac
tion his arms and legs fairly bulge
with muscles, and he possesses about
as much strength as anyone seen
hero tn years. Binkley is an all-round
athlete, having served four years as
director of athletics at the Colum
bus, Ohio. Athletic club. He was also
one of Jack Dempsey's trainers when
Dempsey was training for his battle
wMth Jess Willard at Toledo. He
starred with Ohio State university as
a footballer while in school. Binkley
made a number of friends in his
match hare last Monday and will un
doubtedly make several more against
Lewis, even though he loses, as he
is always in there trying and giving
his beat. Tommy Tompkins, who is
geitlng up the preliminaries for the
coming match, is making an earnest
endeavor to bring together Claude
Kendricks and Mike Forbes in the
semi-final. This match should be
a humdinger If arranged.

GEORGIA TECH JACKETS
INVADING BIRMINGHAM;
PLAY CLUBBERS TONIGHT
By MARVIN UTOARTHY
Defeated, but not outclassed, In
their basketball game with the Camp
Henning outfit Wednesday night, the
Clubbers are meeting their second
opponent within the week tonight
when they clash with the quintet from.
Georgia Tech of Atlanta. The Jack
ets and Clubbers will sta.rt their
game at 8:15 o'clock, and the result
ing battle is expected to be a classic.
When the Yellow Jackets of
Georgia Tech line up against the B.
A. C. outfit tonight it will be the
first time in years, if ever, that a
Tech team has appeared In Birming
ham, other than the road race teams
that participate in the B. A. C.’s an
nual event here.
Their Fame Han Spread
The fame of" the Yellow Jackets
has spread over Dixie, and local fan
dom is eager to see a Tech team of
any kind in action. The Jackets are
said to have a corking good basket
ball outfit this season, so the At
lanta Institution should be well rep
resented on Its first Invasion of the
Magic City.
The Clubbers perhaps played their
best game of basketball against the
Soldiers of Camp Henning Wednes
day night, but were defeated by a
classier aggregation. The Soldiers
displayed splendid tram work and
shooting ability. and the locals
couldn’t stop them. However, the
showing made by the Clubbers was
encouraging to local fans, as. for the
first time, the local basketeers
played the game of which they are
capable.
Jackets Arc Strong
Tech has a good quint this season,
with such stars as Brewster and Sta
ton In the line-up. These two cage
sters are veterans with the Jackets.
Brewster plays a good game at for
ward and has a prep school star,
Jenks, as his running mate.
At center the Jackets have a rangy
bRsketeer named Eckford, while .Sta
ton and "Baby” Roane hold down the
guard positions.
For the Clubbers. the usual line
up will probably open the game to
night. Chisholm and Stapleton will
start at the forwards. Stapleton
made a great showing against Camp
Henning by his defensive work after
he entered the contest. He put an
immediate quietus on the scortng
rumpus the Jackets were creating.
Bryan, Baker and Holt will be in
line for the center position tonight.
Bryan will probably start the con
test.
A flellalble Pair
Clemmie Laughinhouse and Nor
man Mandy will start at the guards.
With Clem furnishing the defensive
end of the guard gapie and Mandy
playing a roaming position, thie pair
has proven very valuable to the
Clubbers this season.
The game tonight will begin at
8:15 o’clock and will be followed by
a dance. The game Wednesday night
was very well attended and a splen
did dance was staged after the game.
The Atlanta Journal scribe seem*
to think that, as an Atlanta product.
Hed Barron, star of gridiron days,
will completely dazzle Birmingham
fans when he appears on the B. A. C.
court tonight. Here's what the Jour
nal scribe says:
'* ‘Red’ Barron, Tech’s halfback,
sprinter and center fielder, may
make the trip to Birmingham. For
even the sight of the illustrious
•Red.’ whether hevplayed the entire
game or not, Birmingham folks
should turn out as all Jerusalem did
to see the Queen of Sheba, with pos
sibly a larger attendance of the fair
" 'Red' should he as good an attrac
tion in Birmingham as the Queen wa.s
in Palestine. Solomon made his
chariot races pay by having Shebx
drive, so why not capitalize the fame
of the sorrel-topped race horse of
Tech ?”
Springville Wins Bat
tle From Simp
son Team
After allowing Simpson to got a
5 to 3 advantage on them In the first
half of the game, the Springville
five came, back with a strong of
fensive In the second half and
trounced the local team by a count
of 28 to 14. The game was a good
one In every respect, as both teams
showed a variety of the tricks of the
game and a great deal of fight.
The Springville boys started things
In a lively fashion at the opening of
the game, and it looked as though
they would beat Simpson from the
start. However, the Simpson boys
put up some great defensive work
and managed to hold the visiting ag
gregation to three points for the first
half, while they made five them
selves.
In the second half, the visiting five
came back with a strong offensive
and a pass game that completely daz
zled the fighting Simpson five, and
it was not long before they began
running up the points. Simpson still
fought hard and played well, but
