are Unsatisfactory in States
for Staging Title Match.
NEW YORK, Jan. 10.—Charles B. Coch
rane, the London promoter who has been
here several weeks trailing Jack Dempsey
with a contract signed by Georges Car
pentler, has booked passage to return
Saturday. He said here today he would
not worry if he did not have Dempsey's
name on the parchment when he returns.
"if the fight is staged in 1920 I will
be the promoter. The contract I have
with the Frenchman is valid any place
In the world,” he said.
He further declared he would not
stage the fight In America as conditions
were not satisfactory and if future de
velopments demanded the fight here he
'TIW dispose of his contract to some
Aimerlcan promoter. He considers it un
likely that the fight will be held sooner
than late in the year as Manager Des
caraps has indicated to him that Carpon
tier wants a long rest before starting
training for the fight of his life.
When asked about the statement of
Descamps that lie held only an option
on the Frenchman's services until Feb.
1, he said:
"I am tired denying that. Just wait
snd see; that will be the best way to
prove my claim that I have a full fledged

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 19—Willie
Jackson of New York closed with a
furious rush against Harry Carlson of
Boston in six rounds Saturday, and
turned what had first appeared to be
a defeat into victory. Carlson forced the
fighting at the start and for a brief

Amateur Feds Plan
Enlargement of Activity
and Adopt New Rules
CLEVELAND, Jan. 19.—An effort to re
strict the amateur class to players who
had never played professional baseball
failed at the annual meeting of the Na
tional Baseball federation here, hut on
reconsideration It was voted that city as
sociations should take up the question
and report at the March meeting. Severai
changes in the playing rules were made.
To enter Intercity championship competi
tion a league must start, the season with
rt least six clubs and finish with at least
Winning Industrial teams of each city
must pay to the federation an entrance
leo of SSO before they can enter intercity
competition. Semi pro teams must pay
.VIGO. The 10 per cent of gross receipts
of chcmpionship Intercity series which
each use relation pays to the federation,
was raise 1 to 15 per cent. Those cities
not charging admission to championship
contest* must give 15 per cent, of funds
derived fr, rj other games, the minimum
to be sso*,.
A movement was launched to expand
the organic.tion to practically all parts
of the country. The president will ap
point regions' chairmen who will visit
cities in their districts. James F. Pitts,
former director of recreation of Cleve
land, was appointed secretary by the
board of directors. Cleveland was se
lected as permanent headquarters.
The regular intercity schedule meeting
will be held at Cincinnati in July. The
board of directors will meet in March at
Detroit or Pittsburg.
James H. Lowry, superintendent o f
public parks, was re-elected to serve a
third term as vice-president of the Na
tional Amateur Baseball Federation, at
the annual meeting of that body held
at Cleveland, Saturday.
Mr. Lowry was also appointed on a
special committee, with W. S. Haddock
who was re-elected president of the fed
eration, to visit Washington and make
an effort to have anew department or
ganised to take charge of public park
recreation throughout the country.
Through the efforts of Mr. Lowry and
JR. Walter Jarvis, director of recreation,
Indianapolis has become one of the lead

Four-Cornered Meet
at Brownsburg Stirs
Interest Among Fans
Technical, Ben Davis and
Thorntown Three Outside
Teams Entered.
Technical high school athletes of In
dianapolis will be on "edgo” for the big
four-cornered basketball tournament to
be held at Brownsburg, Ind., Saturday.
In that tourney Technical, Ben Davis,
Brownsburg and Thorntown will battle
for a championship. One of the inter
esting features of the tourney will be the
game between the Brownsburg high
schol girls team and the Ben Davis high
school girts’ team and the Ben Davis high
that their girl teams are equal or su
perior to any other girls' team in the
state and that game Saturday will settle
a big question
The schedule of • the tournament fol
lows: 2 p. m. Brownsburg vs. Thorn
town; 3 and . m. Technical vs. Ben Davis,
and at 8:15 p. m. the winners of the aft
ernoon games will meet to decide the
championship. The Brownsburg-Ben
Davis girls’ game will be played at
7:SO p. m
Ail the games v.-ill be played in the
big Brownsburg high school gymnasium.
The seating in the gymnasium Is a tea
ture as it is arranged in bleacher style
and every spectator has an excellent view
of the games. The large seating ca
pacity of the gym assures all the visit
ing teams excellent seats for their root
ers who make the trip to Brownsburg
to see the games.
While Indlsnapolls followen of the in
door sport believe that Technical will
win the four-cornered championship tour
ney, the follower® of the other schools
have a different Idea about what will
happen. For the Ben Davis
ream this year is the nest in the history
of that school. The Ben Davis boys be
lieve they will stop Technical In the after
noon game and that Ben' Davis will be
one of the teams that will play the
championship final battle. The husky
athletes from the southwest part of Ma
rion county may prove to be the dark
horse team of the tourney.
Brownsbm-g, coached by John Syru
monds, is confident that there will be
nothing to the four-cornered affair but
a Brownsburg championship. They point
out that Yrownsburg was lucky In the
draw and will meet Thorntown. The
Thorntown team 1s small, but fast, and
lost to Technical last Saturday. Browns
burg basketball fans say their quintet
will not have as hard a preliminary game
as Technical. The Indianapolis team will
have its hands full if it j>uts Ben Davis
out of the running, they declare. They
point to Brownsburg’s 37 to 17 victory
over Ben Davis and declare that It Indi
cates that Coach Symmonds has a cham
pionship combination. They also say
that Brownsburg defeated Brazil, 37 to 3.
the Brazil team not getting a field goal.
This indicates that Brownsburg has a
most wonderful defense.
It has long been said that ‘‘pride
cometh before the fall” and Thorntown
High school may show a reversal of form
from that displayed against Technical
last Saturday, ana when It gets against
Brownsburg Coach Symmonds’ quintet
may have a hard time to stay In the tour
nament for-the night game. At any rate,
the four-cornered tourney will give the
athletes experience for their innual dis
trict tournaments, to be held some six
weeks in the future.

In the second squad we have ihe Me-

Taffe busted ’em for 624 and first place
in the singles. He wasn’t considered
such a big gun qntil he got 253 In tbe
final round.
Trotter held the choice singles posi
tion after Saturday night's work, but
Taffe switched him to second place.
Pule and Canning are "somewhere
among the first ten" at preseut, but tt
will not be long Before they pass out
of existence.”
Fox and Peters went into the third
position in the doubles and the Walton
Ratchelor and Grimes Ake combinations
tied for fourth and fifth places.
Sahm and Kelly were two of the boys
that fought bravely Saturday night only
to be lost tn the fog after the Sunday
shooting. ..
Walton got a 266 in the first round of
the doubles show and followed it with
192, but his third game resembled the
first two of hts partner’s shot. In other
words, it was a 154.
Fehre:,bach and Rnbush were among
those who shot in vain. It wasn’t Feh

Seven Local Teams to Compete
in State Amateur Sec

With little more than two weeks to go
before play Is staged in the Indianapolis
sectional of the -Indiana 150-pound ama
teur basketball championship, the seven
teams that will battle Jiere for the right
to compete In the finals are rapidly
rounding Into form and the fans are set
for a great show. The sectional games
will be played at the Marion club Feb.
4 nnd 5.
The need of a state amateur tourna
ment has been seen by followers of Ihe
game for some time and now that Wayne
Emmelman has decided to take a whirl
at the game he is receiving congratula
tions from all sides. Last week Emmel
man received a letter from Francis Bacon,
farmer member of the famous Wabash
Wonder Five and the Indianapolis Ern-
Roes. who Is now playing with tbe Day
ton Triangles, wishing him success in his
undertaking. Bacon is planning a tour
nament for the amateur teams of Ohio
and has Informed Emmelman that he
would like to match the winners of the
Tndiana and Ohio events In a three-gatne
series for thp amateur championship of
Hnosierdom and the Buckeye state.
The possibilities of this plan going
through will make the Indians teams
work much harder for the championship.
The Indiannpolls teams stack up nicely
and it is believed that the winners of the
local sectional play will come out on
top 1n the final round scraps. Season
tickets for the Indianapolis sectional
went on sale today at 12 South Capitol

ever, the fact stands out that the boys
from Broad Ripple tied the score Ip. the

long Journey to the Ohio river taken by
the Manunlites must have had a had ef
fect on their playing ability, for the
South Stders are a whole lot better than
those two scores would indicate.
