BLOOMINGTON. Ind., March 13.
Technical High of Indianapolis was de
feated in the firs, morning game by
Jefferson of Lafayette, 18 to 9, In the
state high school basketball meet here.
The score at the first half was 0 to 5,
with Jeff leading. Tech tied the score in
the second period, but then missed a
number of easy shots, whllo the Jefferson
five hit from long range. E. Crc ?e again
starred for the winners. The defense pnt
up by Tech was one of tha features of
the game.
When the Technical team walked onto
the playing floor this morning, the first
quintet to put in an appearance, there
came an outburst of rooting from the
supporters of tbe Green and White school.
The Tech lads showed plenty of pep and
fight, spurred on by the uproaring send
off. The game started off with oceans of
speed.
Crowe was first to score in tbe contest,
when be threw a foul goal on Black’s
personal. Drayer soon followed with a
score, when he caged one from under the
basket. The score remained tight and
guards on both sides worked at high
pitch. Every player was on his toes. The

rooters maintained a constant nerve
tensloned series of yells, led by their
mmß leaders. Whenever a player starred
came a resounding snappy yell.
Jefferson evened up the score and then
passed the Indianapolis lads with two
field goals, making the score when the
first half whistle blew, 6 to 5, In their
favor.
The spirits of the Green and White
boosters were undaunted and during the
Intermission the CaDltal city rooters
yelled themselves almost hoarse in an ef
fort to speed up and fortify the team.
Enongh psychological energy was In
jected Into the veins of the Tech team
players to win the championship of the
world.
The Indianapolis warriors seemed to
have lost none of their old confidence
and fight when they tramped out for the
second scrimmage, following the ball
fast and guarding their opponents so
closely that they were not given a clean
shot at the ring. However, this work
last for only a short time. Before the
first ten minutes of the half were up
the Tech machine, crippled by the loss
of Slaughter, their star forward, and
one of the greatest basket men In th*
state, seemed to weaken, slowed up and
gave the Jefferson huskies a chance to
Ojdle up points on close shots, which
they did with uncanny accuracy. Before
the Tech "stonewall” crumbled Nipper
tied the count on a foul throw
The Green and White players are not
to be ridiculed for their defeat. They
were an army without a leader, for
Slaughter Is one of those chaps who
naturally falls into the leader’s position
on the basket court, and It was Just a
question of time until they would “blow 1 .
In the tournament play. Nipper, sub
stituted for Slaughter at forward, played
a brilliant gamo on the floor and was
Tech’s best scorer, registering once from
the court and twice from the foul line.
Griggs, teaming with Nipper at the
guard posts, closely guarded and
failed to count from the floor on his
thrilling long range shots.

work and marvelous speed that put. the
Anderson quintet on the long side of
the count. At the end of the half An.

rcore being 18 to 13.

J
close of the first two days of the tourney
Coach Smith’s Greencastle quintet was
still the only "dark horse." It was
Greencastle that defeated Martinsville In
the opening round of the tourney, and
It was Greencastle that defeated South
Bend, 17 to 12, In Friday’s game.
Anderson’s 2fl-to-4 victory over Spice
land academy yesterday was a surprise,
only in the sire of the score. Anderson
had been considered a sure winner, bnt
Spiceland was thought to be strong
enough to play Coach Stagg’s quintet
today at 2 o’clock.
FRANKLIN HAS
EASY TIME.
In the games played during the first
two days of the teurney Franklin has
either drawn easy teams or is so ex
ceptionally strong that only the best
in the tourney can give Coach Wagner's
men an argument. Piling up a top
heavy score on Young America In the
first day of the tourney, Franklin lived
true to the dope of the fans and was
picked as a sure winner of the state
championship. Some there were who
said that Franklin would have trouble In
winning from the Normal high school
team of Terre Haute. Normal had won
the Wabash valley championship, defeat
ing the best high schools la western In
diana and eastern Illinois, In a tourney I
held more than a month ago at Clinton, j
Ind. Normal won Its sectional In an I
easy style. If Normal had any hope of i
being state champion it required Just
five minutes of play for Franklin to
break up those hopes. Franklin won, SO
to 8. Normal was outclassed and out
played in every department of the game.
Franklin was to play Bedford at 11
o'clock.
TECH ATBLBTE3
WIN FRAISE.
Coach Black’s Tech athletes won many
friends yesterday by their clever, fast
and clean play. Tech defeated Kendall
ville, 30 to 17. Handicapped by the loss
of Eld red Slaughter, star forward, Tech
nical played a wonderful game, and many
critics declared the Indianapolis team
would defeat Jefferson High school In
the game that was scheduled to be played j
at 9 o'clock this morning. There were j
others who declared that Tech <Md not
have a chance to win from Jefferson and
pointed to a 22-to-12 victory scored by i
Jefferson over Technical two weeks ago
at Indianapolis. However, It was recalled
that Technical played Jefferson even In
that game In the first half, losing only
when the Lafayette team made a series
of long shots.
roach Abbott’s Bedford five eliminated
Gary last night to the tune of 23 to 12.
Bedford had been picked as a sure win
ner of that game. Tbe Hartford Clty-
Milroy game was a real one last night.
Coach Stonebreaker's Hartford City team
won by a34 to 24 score. Their defensive
play was strong.
There were six games scheduled for the
final day’s tourney. Three of these were
played this morning. The two semi-final
games were scheduled to be played nt 2
and 8 o’clock this afternoon. The final, :
and championship battle, between the J
winners of the afternoon games will be ]
played at 8 o’clock tonight. The winner j
of that game will be the champion high j
school basketball team of the state. The j
championship carries with it the highest j
athletic honors ever won by a high j
school basketball team In the country,
for It Is won from the greatest number
of teams that ever took part In a series
of championship tourneys in the history
of the great indoor sport.

MAY ADD $20,000
TO SPEED PURSE
Suggest Award for Leader at
End of Each Lap.
An additional purse of 420,000 to be
awarded by Indianapolis business men
and manufacturers to leaders in tbe next
Indianapolis 500-mlle race, on the basis
of SIOO for each lap that they are out in
front, is suggested by George M Dick
son, presilent of the National Motor Car
and Vehicle Corporation, as a means for
injecting still greater attractiveness Into
this contest, and enhancing its prestige
as the world's greatest sporting event
"The Indianapolis speedway race is
the city’s greatest publicity asset,” says
Dickson, "having spread her name to all
the far corners of the globe, and' I
that it should consequently be regarded
ns a civic institution, with the entire
city behind it. It ought not to prove
difficult to get two hundred Indian
apolis firms, or Individuals, to subscribe
$j()0 each to a pool of $20.0*10. to be
divided among the pacemakers during the
next Indianapolis race on the basis of
SIOO for each lap that they are in front.
Such a bonus would make the contest
much more interesting than ever before,
giving a powerful Incentive to every
driver to get into the lead and stay
there as long as possible and I am
satisfied that the knowledge that the
city was behind the event in this way
would give It r. much greater standing
among countries all over the world that
It has never before enjoyed .
“With the dismantling of the Sheeps
had Bay race track and with the con
version of the Chicago speedway luto
a hospital site, Indianapolis has the
field of speed way racing practically all
to herself. I feel that this would be a
good time to demonstrate that Indian
apolis Is coming stronger than ever as
regards automobile racing, and that her
annual classic Is destined to continue as
the outstanding International event of
the sporting world.
“I shall be pleased to start the ball
rolling with a subscription of SKW> in
behalf of the National Motor Car and
Vehicle Corporation," said Mr. Dickson,
“and to receive other subscriptions from
representative Indianapolis firms look
ing to the completion of a $20,000 purse
to be added to the speedway prize money
as soon as possible, or I would be glad
to have the speedway management take
charge of the detail of getting the money
together."

With Victory.

ball arguments of the se. son will close
tonight when the Debonalrs meet the
Fernsdales in the final contest of their
annual three game series at the Y. M.
C. A. Asa result of the two previous
games played on the Marion club court
each team is credited with a victory and
both are confident of finishing on top
in the rubber battle-
Coach Squires sent bis Debonalrs
through a stiff drill last night and they
are in the best of condition for the
ecrap. The Green and White squad
will start the big scrap with Starbuck
and O'Cain at forward; Ettrls, center,
and Anderson and Schaefer, guards.
These youngsters are all rich in basket
ball experience and should offer the
fans a classy bit of entertainment.
The Ferndals and their followers feel
as though the victory is already put
over. They were walloped by a big
margin in the second game of the series,
but tbey claim that the small Marion
club floor did not give them the oppor
tunity to show all their stuff. The "Y”
court is more to their liking and they
are ready to run rings around their old
rivals.

ST. PETERSBURG, Flo.. March 13
I “Micky” Gallagher, a Louisville (Ky.)
pitcher, was borrowed today by Manager
Jack Hendricks to hold down the mound
for the Indian# in the opening spring
practice game against the Southern col-
I lege nine.
j "Big Chief Jack" did not cars to use
! one of his regular hurlers today, since
| the Tribe has had but two practice ses
sions in this man’s leather lot, and so
Gallagher was asked to toss over a few
kinky curves. Gallagher, who has been
wintering here with the Florida State
league. ha# kept his sphere-tossing
■hum ic# In good shape and behaved well
for the Indians. Hendricks put Henllne
behind the bat. Gosset covered first.
Long second bag, Schrelber shortstop.
Wolf third, with Shlnners, ZwlUlng and
Adams filling In the outposts.
COVINGTON, CAVET
AND REHG COMING.
Covington, Cavet and Rehg were du#
to arrive lnte today, while Ollle O’Mara,
■ Ird-sacker. is du#
the first of next week.
Schrelber set the town on fire with his
fast stuff in the opening practice tbt*
morning and yesterday. Big league stuff
from "uniph to izzardtty." He's making
good from the start, "that fellow Schrel
ber," as the natives call him. They have
retold the yarn about that diamond pin
In his coat lapel, and they are believing
all the stuff the papers have banded out
about his ability to stick with a world
1 champion outfit. Hank dug his toes Into
the F’lorlda turf and ran down bounders,
grabbed liners, hooked high ones and
heaved the li’l pill around over the gosh
dinged lot like Bush used to do at Wash
ington park. H-ndrlcks not only grinned
when be saw the stuff Hank handed out.
but he shouted out his appreciation of
the efforts and tbe pep the Redleg put
into bis plays.
And the natives who heard and saw
Hank yelled "Attaboy 1”
Training conditions down here are
superb. Nice hot afternoon sunshine, the
klud that brings out tbe oosy salt water
and boils out tbe winter stiffness. Not
only the weather, but the St. Peters
burg fans are pulling for the Hoosler ag
gregation Mayor
U grubbing up all the roses in town
to litter the pathways of the Tribesmen.
: Even former Gov. J. Frank Hanley, who
| is down this way wintering, has put in
an appearance to greet hie townsmen
and congratulate them upon their good
fortune to pick out this-inan’s-town to
train In. Other former Hooslert have
looked up the team to band oat the
glad mit of welcome.
FERRELL PULLS
TOWN LOT STUFF.
The tenm ha# cut loose in opening
workout stuff. Adatns, who spells his
front name with a K, a# in Karl, and
"Hick'* F’erreil pulled out the town lot
stuff, shoved ail they had Into their
| heaves and today are feeling the pre
liminary stiffness that comes with spring
training.
Schreivcr has found the center field
fence In one or two man-sized wallops
at the ball and la determined to make
a specialty of fence-pounding. He’s al
ready served notice on silk shirt winners
of (he old team lhal he's ill the running
far bta share. (Take notice advertiser#
In the Times, get your fence ads up,
too.)
Tho ball park fence is being painted,
too, and so Jack Hendricks has warned
Schrelber either to knock the ball over
the fence or to loose it in the lot in
order to keep the new balls from being
smeared up too much. The roof of the
new clubhouse is being put on over the
men's heads as they dress.
The feed down hers seems to agree
with the men. That Edgewater inn chef
is performing like anew broom at pres
ent and is working overtime to keep the
table diet in line with the menus or
dered by Trainer Morgan.
Orders have gone out today that doa
ble trninlng and practice periods will be
put Into force tomorrow and to continue
until further notice.
Manager Hendricks has planned to
meet Washington here March 17, St. Pat
rick’s day. Then will come games with
the Clncy Redlegs at Miami and also
here. More games will follow with Wash
ington nt Tnmpa. A series of hot games
will be played with the Havana Stars

Referee Smith Says
Mason Earned Right
to Longer Wilde Go
Little Hoosier Battled Hardest
When Odds Were Against
Him.
WILDE GREAT FIGHTER
By ED SMITH.
(Referee Wllde-Maaon Bont.)
TOLEDO, March 13.—When It la said
that Jimmy Wilde, Britain's last remain
ing ring champion, is tbe mechanical
genius of tbs prize ring, the whole story
of last night's battle with Frankie Mason,
America’s best, is told In a few words.
Jimmy finished out In front with the
hero from Ft Wayne, after twelve of
the best rounds that anybody has seen
in a long time. The margin was not
a wide one, for Mason pnt up a great
battle, and Wilde was put to the limit
of his great genius to finish a trifle in
front. Rules of the Toledo boxing com
mission do not permit of a decision
by the referee and none was rendered
officially.
Mason was too much on the defensive
In almost every one of the twelve rounds
but the fifth to get anything bnt a lot
of credit for a great showing against a
man who is generally regarded as the
world's best. The fight was one of the
greatest battles ever seen between mid
gets in any land and proves that a longer
fight between them will be necessary be
fore a really decisive result can be
reached. To many of the spectators It
looked as If Mason might have been fin
ished to a turn within four or five rounds
more.
Mason had a little shade in the earlier
stages of the contest, bnt the powerful
little steamroller from Wales kept whal
ing away with auch effect in the lat
ter stages that he nullified ail of this
and in the eleventh round had Mason in
a rather bad way through a few well
directed shots to the short ribs. One of
these especially had Frank going
barkards, and as he sailed along
tho ropes from side of the
ring to the other he appeared
to be about to go down under the at
tack.
It was a place for a game man to make
a tremendous stand, and Maaon was
found not wanting under the strain of
this situation. He turned once or twice
and fought back with Tigor that he
seemed not to possess and then took it
again on the run. Jimmy tried every
little trick that he had in his big book
to put over the finishing touch but Mason
flopped around in such a way that Wilde
con'd do nothing.
From the first gong it was a great bat
tle, both men in the early stages stand
ing toe to toe and soaking away at each
other. Bnt In a short time the Wilde
system of battling showed itself at its
best. He never gave an Inch unless he
was shoved away and kept forcing the
affair in snch a way that, while he got a
lot of pnnehes shot into every section
of hit fighting front, he had his man
backing so that th* blows were of little
effect.
here toward the close of tbe training
season.
Telegraph wires are being burned
dally by "Big Chief Jack" to keep in
touch with Manager Robinson of Brook
lyn and Moran of Cincinnati with new
player-material in mind. Owner Smith
probably will visit San Antonio later to
confer with Johnny McGraw regarding
surplus talent on tbe Giants' roster.

WAY HERE FOR
FLING AT TITLE
If Champ (Joes to Jail, Georges
Wants Crack at Next
Best Man.
MONEY WORRIES ENDED
PARIS, March 13.—Just before his
departure for the United States today
Georges Carpentier, heavyweight cham
pion of Europe, declared that he is
willing to make financial sacrifices to
secure an early contract to fight Jack
Dempsey for the world championship.
Carpentier said that he is willing to
fight Dempsey regardless of the war
slacker charges against the American
pugilist and that if Dempsey should be
sent to Jail he will ask American figbt
promoters to hold a series of bouts to
pick Dempsey’s successor so that tho
world’s championship contest can bo
i held anyway.
"I hope to settle definitely tho arrange
ments for a fight with Dempsey shortly
after my arrival iu America." said Car
pentier. "Naturally I am interested in
the financial rqsurns, but I know that tho
public is likely to become disgusted over
iong bickering. Consequently I shall
make sacrifices to secure an early con
tract After all there should be some
thing more in boxing than a mere scram
ble for money if sporting men hop* to
keep the game clean.
SAYS DEMFSET
MTST BE DEFEATED.
"Os course 1 am interested in the
slacker charges against Dempsey, but I
will fight him regardless of the outcome
unless he should be sent to Jail for*
perjury. My view is that I am not
fighting Dempsey as an individual, but
the possessor of the title, and It is the
tltleholder who must be defeated. It
would be the same If someone else held
it. If Dempsey Is sent to Jail I shall not
claim the world championship myself. I
would consider snch action un&lr. I
shall ask American promoters to arrange
a series of elimination bouts to pick
Dempsey’s successor. Then I can meet
the victor of these bouts in a fair and
square match for the world’s title.”
Carpentier. accompanied by his bride
and his manager, M. Des Camps, left this
morning for Havre. They have reserva
tions on the liner Kavoy, which is sched
uled to sail late today from Havre for
New York.
