Australian Battle Stirs Up a Big Championship Muddle

And about 100 others.
Three hips for the middleweights.
They have stirred up something for the
ring fans to talk about. When Billy
Papke went after some Australian
sucker money the other day and failed
to land he started a bunch of pros and
cons that will last for a year. Without
the least bit of trouble a dozen as
pirants can be called who are willing
to fit in on the throne left without an
occupant when Stanley Ketchel came
to such an untimely end, and each and
every one of them will admit that he
has a perfect right to claim the honor.
Some of the aspirants can be elimi
nated in a breath. With 158 pounds ns
the middleweight limit. Bam Langford
is discarded as impossible. Were he
able to scale the notch, the Boston
tar baby would loom up in the nock
opposed to hint like Jack Johnson does
over Salinas Jack Burns. But regard
leas of what Joe Woodman has to say
on the subject, no person who has seen
the husky black peeled down to fight
ing costume is willing to bet he can
scale middleweight poundage.
With Lang-ford out of the way, it
looks very much like Papke is the bell
cow, regardless of what happened to
him in the antipodes. Ketchel was the
acknowledged peer of the 158 pounders,
yet many fans remember how Papke
disposed of the Assassin when they met
at Vernon a couple of years ago. Mis
management cost Papke his title, for
Tom Jones, now handling Wolgast,
sent him right back against Ketchel
and defeat was the result. *
One boy that must not be overlooked when
figuring on who might be who were an elimi
nation contest to be staged Is Montana Dan
Sullivan. Even the boy's limited experience
•nd one town reputation does not keep the
experts who have seen him perform from
stumping him as good as any In the business.
The San Francisco writers are a unit in de
claring him a good bet against any man his
weight, and Sullivan will be heard from a
whole lot before another year has been torn
oft the pugilistic calendar. But read these
Associated Press dispatches:

a lot of ambitious fighters who laid claim

was out that he was gone, but Papke Is the

World's Record Broken by Little
'20/ Which Has Made 10,
--075 Miles Without Stop
A new record for motor cars was
ushered in and the most wonderful en
durance run since automobiles were
invented was chronicled yesterday at
3:10 p. m. in Los Angeles when a
Flanders "20" finished 10,075 miles
without a stop of the motor.
Now that the coveted record is made
the little car is not to stop running,
but will be kept at it, night and day,
until the motor actually stops, though
it may take weeks, months and years;
and it is predicted that such a volum
inous mileage will bo piled up that it
will not be equaled by any car for a
long time to come. The previous rec
ord of 10.074 miles has been held by
a Maxwell car for nearly a year.
When the Lord Motor Car company
decided to put the Flanders "20" on
this non-stop run it was with the de
sire only to hold the Pacific coast rec
ord for such a run, but when that rec
ord was made and the engine >vas still
running well it was a foregone con
clusion that, barring accidents, the
Flanders would get all records. Yes
terday saw the realization of the pre

board of the A. A, A. for such a non-stop
run by a strictly stock car. Roy P. Hlllman
of the official A. A. A. board for California,
and president of the Automobile club of South
•in California, started the car on Its way at
noon of December -. with on observer ap
pointed by the Auto club, under whose aus
pices the contest has been made, and never
for one minute since that time has the car
ben out of the control of one of the official
Too much cannot be said of the wonderful
driving record of the four drivers who have
alternated at the wheel and guided It not
only through the bm>y streets of the city, but
far out into 'he country, visiting all nearby
towns, and yet nursing the car so tenderly
that there has not been the slightest mishap,
and but one necessary tire change, and that
due to unavoidably running over a broken
botrie, which necessitated changing the front
tires after having covered 7500 miles of the
record breaking distance. The wonderful dur
ability of Morgan & Wright Urea has been
tested In a manner that comes but once In a
lifetime, and today they look almost as fresh
as when put on the car. Welnstock-Nichols
company, distributor for these tires, plan
sending this set of tires on a visiting trip to
all coast agents when they are finally taken
from the car, but, as stated last night, they
are good for many thousand* of miles yet,
and the Flanders certainly will not falter for
a : ing time to come. The car is also equipped
with Splltdorf magneto and a Stewart speed
ometer, both of which have worked without
a hitch on this world breaking run.
When it was realized that the world's rec
ord would be broken today the car was asked
to do tho phenomenal mileage of 427 miles in
the last twenty-four hours, so that it could
be taken down in front of tlie big auto show
at Fiesta park and photographed In mid
afternoon for the admiration of the thou
sands of show visitors, who have been in
tensely interested in the run. and who have
stoop In crowds before the bulletin boards In
the Lord Motor Car company's show space in
the big teat.
Play will begin in the men's single* tourna
ment on the courts of the Mt. Washington
hotel at 9 o'clock this morning, and will last
I until sundown Saturday. Contestants in the
liiterscholastlc and free-for-all classes will
play off their matches simultaneously, as, one
Ci urt will bo devoted to each class today.
The college singles will not begin until to
morrow morning, as the eight contestants in
that class can decide their individual su
premacy in the last two days.
Among the matches which will be played
today Roger* of Thacher school and Herd of
Throop, and Wooldredge of Thacher school and
Clomson of Harvard, will be opponents. One

fcr-all class will be Winnie Mace vs. Karl

be given, the winners to be presented with
rackets, while the losers In the finals will bo
solaced with a college cut sweater vest.
The prizes will be awarded at the tennis

10,075 MILES
Without a Stop of the Motor
A strictly stock Flanders "20" which has been running continuously since Dec. 2, at noon, on
Wednesday, Dec. 28, broke the world's non-stop record of 10,074 miles, which has stood
for nearly a year.
Not a single adjustment of any nature was made to the propelling mechanism of the
car, and it is
just a little bit better than it was when it started.
Four Hundred and Twenty-Seven Miles
Were Made in the Last Twenty-Four Hours
Flanders "20" merits your careful consideration.
It sells for $800 delivered in Los Angeles.
