CITY TOURNAMENT BOWLING, BASKET-BALL, BILLIARDS AND BOXING NEWS
CHAMP TO BE
EASY FAVORITE
OVER BRENNAN
Physically, Big Fellows Stack
Up Even, but Dempsey
Carries the Wallop.
BV TACK VEIOCK, V
International News Sports Editor.
NEW YORK, Dec. 6—Jack Dempsey
and Bill Brennan, who meet In a fifteen
round decision bout at Madison Square
Garden a week from tomorrow night, are
the most evenly matched fighters from a
physical standpoint who ever squared
away for a championship battle.
Both are rugged, big-boned and won
derfully muscled. Donipsey stands 6 feet
% inch; Brennan towers to the same
height. The champion weighs 188 to 190
pounds In fighting trim, while the Chi
cago boy scales 190 in condition.
Dempsey has a reach of seventy-eight
inches. Brennan’s reach is one Inch
shorter. In almost all other measure
ments from chest expansion of forty-five
inches to eight and one-half-inch ankles,
the rivals are a stand-off for each other.
The measurement of fighting ability,
however, gives Dempsey a decided advan
tage. Two years ago, in Milwaukee, the
cyclonic lad from Salt Lake knocked
Brennan out in five rounds. That was
before he was champion and since that
time he has Improved to a marked de
?tree, though he was close to his top
orm nearly a year before he met Jess
Willard.
Next Tuesday a week Brennan will get
his chance to retaliate. Like Dempsey,
he is an Improved fighter and he be
lieves he has a good chance to drop two
birds with one well-timed punch—get
even with Dempsey and annex the world’s
championship.
Asa big majority of fistic followers
fail to coincide with Brennan In this be
lief. Champion Dempsey will go into the
ring a heavy favorite. But Brennan has
a chance —the rhance of any fighter has
of slipping over an unexpected punch.
The rival heavyweights settled down
to a week of real work today. Both
worked out before big crowds at th.-ir
training quarters and from now till next
Sunday they will keep at It hammer and
tongs.
Tex Rickard predicts that the bout will
draw a record house. A gate of £.’00,000
will not surprise the promoter.
Tickets for the fight will range from
$3 to 525 and the New York State Box
ing Commission, in conjunction with
Rickard, announced today that extra pre
cautions are being token to keep tne
pasteboards out of the hands of specu
lators. Only a limited amount of tickets
will be distributed through licensed
ticket agencies.
WILLARD HOME
IS QUARANTINED
LAWRENCE. Kan.. Dec. o—The home
of Jess Willard, former heavyweight
champion of the world, was today under
strict quarantine, when two of tits chil
dren became ill with dlpatherla. The
children, a boy and a girl, are sa)jl to
be seriously sick.
The quarantine will not materially af
fect Willard’s training plans for a bout
next March 17 with the winner of the
Dempsey-Brrnnan match, he said.
"My children come first.” the former
champion added, "and I will spend most
of my time with them My farm, however.
Is big enough to do ail my training here
and I'll continue light work."
Amateur Bouts at I. A. C.
See Defeat of Champs;
Orme Mixes in Feature
A rair of champions went down In de
feat on the high-class amateur boxing
card staged at the Independent Athleticc
Club Saturday night. Leslie Treber of
Marion, State welterweight champ, lost
a decision to Frank Sartnr of the I. A.
C., and Henry McDuff of the I. A. C.
lost his bout with Jack Edwards of
Marion. Treber defeated Sartar and Mo-
Duff defeated Edwards in the final round
of the State tournament staged at the
I. A. C. last fall.
Vaughn Treber, the third champion to
perform on the card, w. ii bis battle
with George Mullholland of the I. A. C.
after the Judges had sent them through
an extra round before tthey were able
to hand down u decision.
The real feature of the evening was
the Orme-King affair. Both are I. A. C.
lightweights. Besides being a strong lad
with a good kick in either fist, Orme
Saturday night proved himself the
smartest boxer on the I. A. C. roster.
He had nothing to worry about in bis
bout with King.
Vogel and Moran, both lightweights of
the local club, opened the hUI with a
lively setto, Moran having somewhat the
better of the argument at the end of the
four rounds. Thornburg and Curran, I.
A. C. welterweights, staged the next
melee, the decision going to the frmr.
Another scran between local welters.
Martin and Bridges, went to Bridges
after a spirited argument.
AH Itouts were of scheduled four-round
duration.

Sensational Game Won
by Congerville in Big
Battle With Gas City
GAS CITY, Ind., Dec. 6.—Before u
crowd of 2,000 football fans the Conger
ville Flyers football team of Muncle tle
! seated the Gas City Tigers here yester
j day by the score of 13 to 7. It was the
1 second time this year that Gas City has
: been defeated, having lost to the Flyers
I on Thank giving day.
Both teams land "strengthened” their
line-ups for yesterday's battle nnd the
j game the most sensational ever seen
' in this city.
There was little to cho-'se between the
teams In weight and they battled on
| even terms until near the end of tho
second period. The defense was so strong
thut few gains were made. Then Weaver,
j standing as if to kick a ball from a
j punt formation, started around Muncie'a
left end. He cut bark and tackier after
■ tuckler failed to cling to the Gg* City
giant. Big Weaver covered eight yards,
throwing off man after man and crosaed
the goal line for a touchdown. He kicked
goal.
A blocked punt was recovered by Ful
ton, the Flyers’ star guard, on Gas City's
five-yard line soon after the third pe
riod opened. Cooney Cheekeye circled
the Gas City end for four yards. Huffino
tried three time before he could carry the
the ball through for a touchdown and
Cheekeye kicked the goal.
The "break" that won the game came
late In the last period. Mickey Hole,
| left half back for Muncle, twisted his
j way through a broken field for seventy
! yards in returning a punt and scored
1 the touchdown that won the game. A
1 few minutes Lter he again mnde a sen
sational fifty-yard run In returning a
punt, but was tackled by Heno on the
! twenty-yard line.

HIGH SCHOOL BASKET GOSSIP
Local high scheoo! fives will start in i
in earnest this week on their 1920-21
schedules. Manual nnd Shortrldge each ■
has two games carded and Tech, al- {
though playing only one contest. It is
with Franklin, last year’s State champs,
and one of the most formidable con
tenders for the same honors again this
year. The result of this battle will show
iocal fans Just where Tech stands In this
yea’-'e race. The contest will be staged,
on the local Y. M. C. A. floor Saturday
night.
Coach Morrison's Manual goal-gutters,
refreshed by their overwhelming victory
over Columbus Saturday night, will stack
into Russellville Wednesday at the Man
u-:I gym. and on Friday will go to Sey
mour for a game with the high school
quintet of that place.
Shortrldge will take a “young trip”
this week up in the northern part of the
State. The north siders will play Lo~
gjnsport Friday night nnd on the fol
lowing evening will take on Wabash.
The football season Just ended hns left a
big score for Shortridgs to settle with
Wabash, and the Blue and White root
ers nr>e of the opinion that Saturday's
fra-’as will provide an excellent oppor
tunity to even things up.
The Franklin-Tech game mar be said
to be one of the big features of the year
that will be offered to ’oral fans and In
terest In the approaching contest is ris
ing to fever heat. Although the Tech
tensers have lost every contest played
this year, and to mediocre teams at that,
Tech followers are not letting the re
sults of these early contests worry them.
The line-up that will represent the Green
and White in Saturday’s batt'e will be
different from that whl h h-' placed the
games to date. Several football men
have been practicing every night with the
HQWUNG
The city tournament wood is due for an
awful thrashing tonight, when the stars
among stars In the iocal bowligg world
will take chargo of the Democrat alleys
to do their singles ami dojbies duties.
Roth the 7:15 and 9:15 shows will be
I stuged by all-star oasts and those who
i don't w ant to m as tho flreworko bad
j better check in after office hours to get
a good sent. Jess Pritchett, Eddie Hark-
I enr tier, Fred McCullough and some more
of that crowd will take their whirl with
' the early birds, while Wait Flat, Irish,
Magel. Broden. I.lebtug, Bunch und com
pany will be there with the later division.
Derscb, Mounce and Reynold*, who
burned up the drives In posting high
singles counts Saturday night, held their
j place throughout yesterday afternoon *
j bombardment. Al It abe was the high
- Sunday mau with ttlO plus, which brought
| hliu up to fourth place.
| Collins, with 592 pins, took charge of
J the fifth station yesterday, while Ilargitt
pulled up at the seventh stop w.tb Ml.
Hackard Just did get under the "big ten"
wire with his 575.
The higher-ups in the doubles were not
i botb-r**.! much by yesterday’s shooting,
the Hurt brothers. Harry and Jim. shoot
ing the best nomination score of the
| day, 1,t)94, to land the fifth berth.
Burke and Albers moved into a tie
with Kichardt and Shine for sixth and
! seventh pbices with a 1,091 count, and
Ochiltree and Hargltt hupg their hats
on the uiuth hook by virtu* of a 1,075.
The Hurt-Hurt combination didn't do
anything sensational to get tlieir fifth
place total. They slmpiy shot a pair of
- mighty consistent stick*.
Ochiltree and Hargltt looked good w hen
they got away for 213 snd 192. respective
-1 ly. In the first frame, but they slipped a
! cog or two before the finish.
Fnrnan's 234 was the best score shot
J In the doubles, but it didn’t get him a
j match.
Derscb certainly shot a pretty club to
take his place at the head of the singles
| column Saturday night. He got 213 In
the first game, 237 In the second and
202 lu the third. Total, 652.
i Motince started out like the champion,
getting a 236 score, but be lacked the
old last-minute punch.
MID WEST GOSSIP.
Indianapolis bowlers gave the folk* of
I St. Louis all the ‘ show me” atnff they
wanted In the Mid-West Tournament, re
turning home with about a thousand
cool ebecklet stowed away In their kicks.
While there wasn't an Indianapolis
knight on the f*t. I/oul* drives who did
not make n creditable ahorving, it re
mained for Jess Pritchett and Fred Mc-
Cullough to take the heart out of their
opponents. McCullough threw In hi* hook
for score# of 225, 226 and 217 for a
grand total of 668 plua and first prlzo
In the singles.
Blue followed McCullough's lead to cop
third place with a 656 total, while Pritch
ett und Xordholt shot for 613 and Henry
got among the leaders with 601.
Pritchett and McCullough then teamed
and knocked off a 1,185 total for sixth
1 mcney in the and rubles. Phillips and Pol
lard were next In line with 1,163,
Trltchett got a count of 253 in his sec
ond doubles effort.
In the five-man event the Central Alley
Five got away to a poor shirt, but came
back with a rush at the finish and laud
ed ninth place with 2,761 plus. Tho Coca-
Coins, Indians and Universal teams also
took money In this division.
Then the all-events scores were figured
i up and It was found that Pritchett, who
i crashed the wood hard In every game ha
shot, wns out in front with a grand to
tal of 1,853. So it seems as though some
of onr “veterans" still have a couple of
good kicks in their systems.
Alleged Connection of
Dubuc With Crooks Is
Cause of His Release
TOLEDO, Dec. ft.-—Jean Dubuc, man
ager of the Toledo club In 1920, has been
! given Ills unconditional release. Presi
dent P.ogcr Bresnahnn, In announcing
I the release slated it was for the best
; Interest of all concerned. Bresnahnn Is
, in thj field for n playing manager of
tdg league caliber to lead the Mud Ilenc '
| In 1021.
It has been suspected for some time ]
that Dubuc would not return next sum- j
nier because his name was connected j
with the recent exposure of crookedness
In the 1919 world series.
Because of his connection with the
New York Giants nt the time, and be ; "
cause of bis friendship for Hal Chase
nnd Helnle Zimmerman, Jean was the

squad and Coach Black is expected to
choose his starting line-up from among
these men to a great extent.
The basket-ball battle between Tech
and Franklin is an annual event with the
two schools and the Franklin contest Is
usually the feature game of the season
on the Tech card. For the past three
years Tech has fallen before the on
slaught of the downstaters nnd the locals
will have to display much unexpected
strength If they are to avoid the same
result again this year.
Once again even at this stage of the
season It looks ns though the strongest
team In the. northern half of the State
Is Anderson and the strongest in the
i southern half Franklin. Each aggress
! tion has been going at a whirlwind pace
i this year and neither has been defeated.
These two ancient rivals clash tomor
row night at Franklin in one of the
| feature contests of the 1920 season. By
* comparative scores hung up in the early
| games this year the two teams appear
I evenly matched.
Frankfort is another team In the north
ern patt that looks mighty good at this
| stage, and it will take a speedy appre-
I giitlon to stop them. To date they aro
undefeated, their recent victory over
' Rochester being convincing evidence of
i their strength. Wingate has a team thl*
[ year that appear* to be going as good
j its their famous ono of last season that
won the American champlousohlp exclu
sive of Indiana, and along with Crnw
fordsvllie. cleaned up everything In the
Middle West. They will bear a lot of
w itching this year and many are already
picking them as the coming champs.
Martinsville and Bloomington also appear
; unusually strong this year, aithoug i he -
Vo not look the class of the above-named
fives.

FERNDALE GRID
SQUAD BEATEN
Large Crowd Sees Indianapolis
Eleven Win Title in
Fast Game.
The colors of a football squad that
had not met defeat lu four successive
seasons of battle, were lowered yesterday
afternoon at Northwestern Park, when
a heretofore Impregnable forward wall
crumbled before trip-hammer drives and
the Indianapolis Football Club defeated
the Ferndale squad, 13 to 0, for the city
championship. Two thousand fans wit
nessed the match.
The game resulted in one of the moat
bitter struggles ever staged In Indian
apolis between rival clans, the first half
ending 0 to 0. The Ferndale* did not
once make first down through the Purple
and White line and circled the ends lor
the necessary distance only twice.
The Ferndale# brought the ball to
within scoring distance only once, this
being in the first period, after they had
inteH*epted a forward pass and negoti
ated u. pass, Athey to Nelson.
FAIL TO
GO OVER.
This put the ball on the Indianapolis
seven-yard line Just as the first period
ended. Flaggscamy, Ruddles. Ferree and
F. Pair then broke through to tackle
the Ferndale backs before they couM
reach the line of scrimmage on the next
four ploys and the ball changed hand*.
After this the Indianapolis crew forgot
their aerial play nnd plugged through
the Ferndale line to bring the hall to the

A Steady Flew of
Power Is Essential to
Safe Winter Driving
No matter how skillful the driver,
in an emergency his efforts do
not count if there are gaps in the
power.
An instant’s hesitation in the
pick-up may be disastrous.
It is unnecessary to risk the danger.

The Eigh ■ Grade Winter Gasoline
Its use assures a steady flow of smooth,
rhythmic power —tremendous power —all the
power your engine is capable of developing.
You start easily, you get away quickly, and
accelerate smoothly, and you have at com
mand an abundance of power.
You get a maximum of mileage, and a min
imum of operating cost
That’s why we say Red Crown is the high
grade winter gasoline.
