MEMSIC PROVES CHAMPIONSHIP
FORM AND IS GOING AFTER TITLE
ACCEPTS MATCH WITH POWELL AND INTENDS TO HAMMER
HIS WAY UP TO TOP AS FAST AS POSSIBLE
Strong Finish Which He Made in Bout with Picato Shows That He
Has* Regained All His Old-time Stamina and He Now Stands
Ready to Meet All Those Near-Champions Who Stand in
His Way—Hopes Thus to Force Battling Nelson to
Give Him Chance at Honors of His Division.
Flynn Hopes to Cop Langford in February
JAY DAVIDSON
GEORGE MEMSIC has accepted the offer made by Manager
Mc< iarey for a ten-round scrap with Lew Powell, the pride ot
Frisco and rated as one of the best lightweights in the west,
for the night of February 15, and will go into training at once But,
in accepting the match, Memsic insists that they fight at the: legiti
mate lightweight limit of 133 pounds, not later than 3 o clock the day
of the fight, make weight or ho right. Memsic decisively whipped
Picato last Friday night, but he sees the utter folly of a lightweight
accept.,.- matches with a welterweight when the lightweight has a
reputation in the ring to protect. Hence he Will not go out of h s
class any more. Alter taking on Powell, fhe is successful, Memsic
is willing t<» tackle young Tommy McCarthy or any other light
weight of promise who stands in the way ot a match between him
self and the champion.
Memalc believes he will be light
welght champion some day and has
that confidence in his return to con
tending form that makes him cautious
in making future matches. Realizing
that he outranks Ad Wolgast, who la
1,, battle with Nelson next month for
the title, Memsic teels that it is In
cumbent upon him to use a little
judgment in making his matches anil
not take any unusual chances that
i he incurred in a match with a
welterweight or in letting a light-
I in at from five to ten pounds
of the weight. He figures
thai he can whip Powell and Uc-
Carthy and Since he has cleaned up
with all the other near-contenders he
has an idea that he soon will be in a
position to make Battling Nelson sit
up and take notice of him and his
claims for attention.
Powell Comes Next Week
Powell comes from Frisco next week
to get into training for the bout with
Memsic, and the latter will take a
)• st of a few days before again start
ing upon the strenuous routine that
- necessary to put him into
the ring in condition to show cham
uip form. He gratified his friends
Friday night by showing greater im
provement over his fight with Wolgast
than he showed previously, and since
h hi a given his stamina a fair test
!: believes he will be able to go a
distance with»any of them. It always
this lack of stamina, since
nt back two years ago, tiiat has
tanked him to lose several fights that
he should have won. Now that he is
fully restored to health and is fit and
to show his old-time form he
- in complete his plans for climb-
Ing bai k up the ladder by whipping
all those who stand v; the way of a
match with Nelson. Then he wants a
crack ;'i the champion and a chance
at tiie title, which lie feels sure he

Powell is a shifty fighter, despite his
poor showing with Wolgast, ami will

CLAREMONT, Jan. With the I
home field day one week off all the.
sagebrush letes are working- over
time in preparation for this the first
meet of tho season. The competition
this year will be largely between the
freshmen and the seniors, the former
probably having the besl chance to
«in The last year men will be strong
In the sprints. Captain Sloam is c.x
- to win the 100 and 220-yard
tiashus and the broad jump, and prob
itbly will place-in the shotput. Bloane
also will run the last lap in the relay
race, which the seniors ought to win,
as they have for the past three years.
The four men entered in this event are
Queen, Case, Sloane and Whitney. In
the half-mile race Queen should place,
while in the high jump and pole vault
Whitney ought to be a point winner.
The freshmen will win second place
in the dashes with Bobbie Spurgeon's
■peed. In the weight events and pole
vault Barnes will be a tower of
Strength, while In the high hurdles
' Clark and Kingman may win. In the
half Rice and Long ought to place.
Tho 440 probably will go to the sopho
morpg, who will have Carver and Paul
! Sloane. They also will get the lion's
share of the distances, with Sturgis,
Loveland .and Billings. The, juniors
will be represented in the 100 and the
low hurdles by Clarence Parker, in the
high hurdles and high jump by Lor
beer, and In the distances by Fischer,
who won the cross country races this
year.- These mentioned are the men
who now figure to win, although there
are a good many more who may show
up as dark horses. .•*.
' Newlanris, Ogler, Merritt, Butler arid

ford-Jim Flynn bout ot ten rounua i" "
is scheduled for February s. Th
is attracting considerable attention
from all quarters because Flynn is be
ing boosted as the man who will trim
Stanley Ketchel if they ever meet, be
ing the only white fighter Who is given
much of a chance to turn the trick. On
the other hand. Langford has a most
formidable and terrifying record to
back him In his aspirations, and Is
„ -nized as the third man in line for
the heavyweight championship today.
Notwithstanding the fact that Lang
ford Stopped Flynn in less than a round
when they met a few months ago. the
fans are giving Flynn a good chance to
win because of his rough house and
very awkward style of fighting:, which
has been a puzzle for such clever men
as Billy Papke and Jack (Twin) Sulli
van. With more care and less reck
lessness than he showed in his former
meeting with Langford, the fireman
should have a good chain-.', and prob
ably will manage to stick nut the entire
limit of rounds. Both are training
hard for the scrap, Flynn having
started work several days before Lang
ford arrived, and it should be a great
battle, in which real cleverness, speed,
punching and generalship will be
matched against awkward cleverness,
speed, the punch and fair generalship.
Flynn will have an advantage in
weight, and hopes to make it count for
something.
Fight for Championship
Considerable pleasure is expressed by
fans at the announcement that Man
ager MeCarey has taken over the Jef
fries arena at Vernon and will put on
long-distance tights occasionally. While
the fans enjoy the shorter bouts at
Naud Junction they occasionally want
to see real lighters go to a practical
finish in order to settle all arguments
and let a referee pass judgment upon
their efforts, Consequently, when Mc-
Carey announced that Danny Webster,
bantam champion of the world by right
in' conquest, and Monte Attell, who has
given Danny some good runs for his
honors, would tight February 22 over
a 46-round route to si ttle the right to
the bantam championship, there was
popular applause.

"Without exception the new pnrk

ST. VINCENTS TO
CURTAIL SPORTS
GAMES WITH OUTSIDERS TO
BE ABOLISHED
Athletics to Be Confined Strictly to
Contests Among Student Body
Only—Competitive Events
Will Be Canceled
President Glass of St. Vincent col
lege yesterday contlr d his letter to
! .!■■ Herald last Friday, and besides,
stated emphatically the Saints would
not compete in athletics with any
other school henceforth and that that
branch o£ student life would bo re
stricted to the student body of the
hool. When asked whether the base
ball schedule would be dropped thu
president replied that baseball would
lie restricted to home competition and
all games with other schools would be
( anceled.
The president, giving his reasons for
taking the stand he has to abolish ath
letic competition with other institu
tions, In an interview yesterday said:
■■I have had this change in mind for
a loiifi time and recent pressure)
brought to bear by parents of students
at this school, has caused me to de
clare for the change. We can try the
experiment at least and I think the
plan will prove feasible when given a
thorough tryout. Under the present
conditions of college athletics, the stu
dent after lie lias worked in ;i football
squad from ?, o'clock until dark, is tn.i
fagged to put in an evening of study
and this condition does not tend to
ward advancing his standing in schol
arship."
Student Criticises Athletes
At the recent examinations hejd at
the Catholic institution, a country boy
from Arizona, in his second year In the
preparatory department, covered the
present situation in the American col
li ges in an article in the following
way: "Athletics are all right, hut from
my study of athletic conditions in this
country, athletes set more pi'ominenco
than the man with brains."
This article, coming from a rather
unexpected .source, impressed the pres
ident considerably.
Speaking of the. incident, the presi
dent said: "Now to show how close
the young man came to the truth; let
us suppose, for illustration, that we
had accosted an average, citizen and
put this question to him: 'Wlio It the
most prominent student at Yale today."
t do you suppose his answer would
be? 'Coy, of course,' nine times out of
ten."
Under (lie proposed system of hand
ling athletics all students will have an
equal opportunity to get the value of
physical development) while in the past
the more skilled, who have made the
teams that have represented the school,
derived all the benefit, and the
remainder of the student body, to us^
its president's words, "have received
their physical development following
the yell leader."
Will Pattern After Poly
The same scheme under which ath
letics at Polytechnic hish ai-e provin ;
so successful will be followed at the
Catholic school. This system gives all
students an equal opportunity in the
games ami the more skilled become
the leaders of the different teams.
The change in athletics at St. Vin
cent's will leave Coach Rheinschlld
without a berth, as it is understood
under the new conditions the American
game will be dropped and another of
the different football games adopted,
probably soccer.
The changing of athletic conditions
with the saints brings up the ques
tion: Did not the present lack of
opponents since the organization of
the conference have something to 'In
with It? It is a known fact that the
Saints, in both football and baseball.
have been to<> strongly represented
for the remainder Of the schools out
side of thft conference In Southern Cali
fornia, and that to bring teams from
Stanford and Berkeley to this city for
games is attended by too great expense
to prose a success financially. A
game with the University of Utah also
would be under great expense. There
fore, under existing conditions, it seems
ttyat the Saints had no other course to
pursue.
ri he present conference situation
seems to be very much in the form of
a trust, or a merger of the talent, in
which the outsiders, although qualified
as much as the Saints were to compete
with them, have no chance to join In
the game.
