MARTINSVILLE, Ind., April 29.—Prob ably the beat boxing bouts ever wit nessed in this city were staged here Fri day night at the Armory. In the main event Joe Walters of Columbus, Ind., put the k. o. on Jack Hayden of Louisville in the fourth round. Hayden was fighting a careful, clever battle and had stung Walters on several occasions before Joe could get in the wallop that is making him famous as ak. o. artist. In the semi final the fans were treated to some lively fistcuffs. when Herbert Crowe of Brook lyn, Ind., and Young Pollard of Martins viile met. The men are welters and Billy Evans Says Best Advice Is to Stick to Rules In playing any sport it is always best to adhere strictly to the rules. The rules were made to govern the game, and if you are playing it then follow the rules as closely as possible. The reason for this is 'hat in tournament play the rules are always literally interpreted And even if one never gets to be more ihnn the ordinary golfer, there are usually several tournaments or ry year that be wants to enter. If in ordinary [day he doesn’t adhere to the rules, he is rather at sea in tournament play . A great majority of golfers play for ttie recreation and ex ercise they derive from the game and ordinarily they don’t give a hang about the rules Usually when one player happens to stymie another. In the spirit o f fair play he moves his ball in order that hi- opponent may have a clear way to the cup. Os course that is contrary to the rules Really there is no particular harm in that . The danger is in throwing one off their game in match or tour nament play. Alt possible situations must be covered by the playing code. The stymie is one of them. It is really best to live up to it, since in the end, the luck of the green will even itself up over a given period. -I- -I- -l* -!- -I- + Ehmke Tries Different Pitching Style Is it a wise more for a pitcher, wh • has won success as a big leaguer with a certain style of pitching, to shift to another delivery? That in a sentence tells the story of the career of Pitcher Howard Ehmke of the Detroit club. Ehmke came to tii American League a side-arm pitcher, much atter a style of Grover Alexander or Walter Johnson. His fast ball, de livered with a sweeping side-arm motion, had a break on It that made it almost unhittable Inside of a year Ehmke was one of the most talked about pitchers in the American League, particularly from the players' standpoint. Nine out of every ten players in the American League disliked to hit against Ehmke when he was using th • side arm delivery. Certainly there could be no better testimonial to the effectiveness of such a style. Before the start of a game Ehmke had the edge because the players disliked, yes, even feared, to hit against his fast ball. Frider Cobb last year Ehmke’s success was just so-so. Any number of reasons could be offered for his failure to win consistently. Perhaps the best reason was that he had an erratic club back of him. This season Ehmke is using an entir ly different style. He hag gotten away from the side-arm delivery almost entirely. He is delivering the ball from a point about on the level with his knees, much after the manner of Carl Mays. The new delivery is rather puzzling because Ehmke is such a tali pitcher. The underhand delivery, however, seems to have robbed Ehmke's fast ball of much of its ’'zip.” . . It will be a rather Interesting experiment to watch, tbit of a star pitcher changing his entire style after becoming an established big leaguer. Braves Protest Giant Win BOSTON, April 29.—Friday’s game be tween the Giants and Braves will bo pro tested to President IT ydler of the Na tional League, Manager Fred Mitchell of the Braves announced. He said that in the fifth inning with the score tied, 3 to 3, Smith was on third, with one out, when Bancroft tiled out to Cruise in deep right field. After the catch was made, he said, Smith scored, but Bancroft, after stopped and leisurely caught Cruise's throw on first bound. Mitchell said, that although there was no chance of catching Smith at the home plate, Bancroft’s catch of this play constituted Interference and Smith's run should not have counted Umpires Sentelle and Klem said Friday night they did not see Bancroft catch the bail.

INDIANA TRACK STARS QUALIFY Finals in Drake Relays Find Four Notre Dame and One Butler Entry. DES MOINES, lowa, April 29.—Records were expected to be broken or tied when final events of the thirteenth annual relay games of Drake University were staged today. Athletes of known ability and nation-wide fame were to compete in al most every event.

They were to oppose each other in the running broad Jump and the shotput to day Bradley took first place in each of these events in the preliminaries. In the fonr-mile relay event to tie run today, Illinois was favored, while Ames runners, were expected to romp home with victory In the two-tnlle relay.

Jole Bay, the - rack mller of the Illi nois Athletic Club, and Ray Watson, formerly of the Kansas City Agricultural College, were to furnish the specialty of the meet when they hook up in a match one mile race. The presence of athletes from Oc cidental College at Los Angles, Y’anib-r ---bilt of Tennessee and Centre of Ken tucky in the meet gives it something of a national tinge. All the leading schools of the Middle West arc represented. Notre Dame athletes played a rather prominent part In the opening day's pro gram, four of tlmm qualifying In different events.

A stilt race for boys, and the tng-of wti r events seemed to carry the most enthusiasm of the crowd, for In these contests the rooting for the favorites reached fever heat. The speed with which the entries In the stilt race ratin' down the street caused the spectators to get on their feet, for n fall by any one of the racers would have created an awful tangle of human forms.

The Indianapolis event was the only one In which he started last year, and he does not expect to drive in y other events this season. How ever, like all veterans, he Is not con tent to retire nnless be can win one of ibe Iloosler classics.

Dorr ell Is Chosen to Meet Martin on Dillon Card, May 10 Two Soldier Scrappers Will Clash in Ten-Rounder at Washington Park. Soldier Jack Dorrell, heavyweight champion of the Pacific coast, has been selected by the Dillon Testimonial Com mittee to oppose Bob Martin, champion of the A. E. F., on the Dillon Testimon ial card at Washington Park Wednesday night May 10. Dorrell’s manager wired the chairman, Ed W. Harter, offering the big soldier’s services and expressed confidence in Dorrell’s ability to bent Bob. Dorrell, who is in the East camp ing on the trail of the big Eastern heavies, has had but one bout since leav ing the land of sunshine, that was a scheduled ten-round uffuir with Battling Jim Johnson, whom he stopped in the fifth round. Local boxing fans are very anxious to see Martin scrap and will welcome the opportunity to see the two big ex-soldiers in action, as both are real fighters of the slugging type. There hasn’t been a heavyweight bout staged in Indianapolis for a good many years and fans are rather anxious to see the heavies mix. Jeff Smith, the Bayonne (N. Y.) mid dleweight, who is striving to get Johnny Wilson or Gene Tunney in the ring with him, is having a hi .'d time securing bouts as all the boys are afraid to meet Jeff. Smith has held the middleweight and heavyweight championships of Aus tralia and France and has beaten all the middleweight* in the United States he has fought. His last bout was a fifteen-round draw with Harry Greb, the "Pittsburgh Flash.” Smith probably will be paired with Jimmy Duffy, the Boston title contender, on the Dillon card. , , , The Dillon card is nearing completion ami if Duffy’s wire is O. K. the card will be complete. There will be sixty four rounds of real boxing in addition to tho numerous exhibitions featuring the greatest lighters in America.
