Good Ring Performers, Unlike Good Wines, Never Seem to Improve With Age
NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS CLABBY STOPS LOGAN AFTER 14 ROUNDS OF ONE SIDED FIGHTING WILLIAM J. SLATTERY The knowing fans of San Francisco made no mistake when they in stalled Jimmy Clabby aloto 4 favorite over Frank Logan. This was clearly demonstrated by Clabby yesterday afteronon in the Daly City ring. The middle weight from Indiana systematically hammered end chopped his heavier opponent up for 14 rounds and Referee Jim Griffin wis forced to do the humane act and officially stop the uneven battle. After Clabby bad planted a pile driver left to the pit of Logan's stomach in the fourteenth Logan began to totter toward the ropes and Clabby was right after him. Griffin saw that Logan did not have a chance, so he took it upon himself to step in and raise the hand of Clabby, pro ng him the winner of the battle. I y~— *~^+~^**~~*~^~*^~..-*-^~*~~s~~*s,. Then a mlxup occurred. Logan in sisted upon fighting and went after Clabby In a half hearted sort of way. >t':abby was right back at him with another left to the Jaw. Griffin watched the mlxup for a few sec onds and then he again grabbed hold of Clabby, and this time he made his verdict stick. It was very evident that the ref eree was »ither rattled or else Logan was trying to make some sort of a grandstand play. Anyhow, the fans were well satisfied with the verdict, even the stanchest admirers of the former soldier admitting that he did not have the slightest chance. CLABBY A PAST MASTER Not a round was in Logan's favor. He was absolutely helpless before the attack of the Hoosler whirlwind. He showed his gameness and his stamina by taking all that Clabby had to offer, but when it came to returning the compliment Logan did not figure. "When one of his stray punches did land they only served to arouse the fighting blood of his opponent. Clabby displayed a varied assort ment of wallops. In fact, there was nothing on the list from the loop-the loop left to the full right swing that he did not try out on the former sol dier. He landed whenever and wher ever he pleased. He steered his op ponnt around the ring like the man at the wheel would steer a ship, and Logan was helpless to prevent It. Although the work of the Indiana man was clean cut and businesslike. It was not quite so wonderful as the display of science which he showed us that night six weeks ago when he Save Sailor Petroskey a 20 round box ing lesson. In fact, many of the fans were a bit disappointed in Clabby. Thay expected more of him, but, ap parently, he did not care much. There is no doubt that clever Jimmy Is a bit shy on the wallop. Had his blows carried the necessary sting to them Logan never would have lasted six rounds. Up to that time Clabby landed everything he had doz ens of times over. They shook Logan up and at times made him groggy, but he was always there to come back lor a few more of them. REMOVES FALSE TEETH ♦ One round was very much the same, ■s another. Clabby was the aggres sor at all times, save when he de cided to take a little rest. Then he wouli either stall around or run away and permit Logan to chase him a bit. He had his opponent sized up exactly to his liking. He knew just ■what he could do with him and he also knew that Logan was at his beck and call. One one occasion Clabby's false tp*-th gave him some trouble. They were partly dislodged by one of Lo gan "s glancing blows. The clever Hoosler held Logan away from him while he removed the teeth and tossed them over to his seconds to look after for him. This just goes to show how much worried Jimmy was, and Logan seemed to realize it. too. The punches which Clabby landed nn Logan's jaw did not appear to dis tress the former soldier to any marked degree, so Clabby at once directed his attention to the stomach, planting both hands there at will. The constant hammering to the lower extremities had the desired ef fect, although the process was a slow and a tedious one. After the tenth round Logan began to fail rapidly, but still Clabby could not finish him. The Hoosler apparently was very «~areles • in directing his attack upon the body of Logan. Time after time the blows seemed suspiciously low. Spider Kelly and the other seconds in Logan's corner protested time after time to the referee, but the claims of foul were not allowed. LOG A N IS HELPLESS Logan failed to land a single dam aging blow on Clabby. Now and then he would shoot in a clumsy right or left to the Jaw, but, instead of doing any damage, these wallops only caused the blood of the Hoosier to boil over, and, as a result, he would renew his attack upon Logan. The former servant of Uncle Sam 1 il much the better of it In height, ■Tweight and reach, but he was unable to make these physical edges count. He simply does not know the game, and he is a very slow thinker. When he had a chance to use his weight In the clinches Logan Just stood there and allowed Clabby to back him at will. He might have caused Jimmy much trouble had he been a little more wise to the game. When the men stepped on the scales at Corbett's at noon Logan was a pound over the required weight, 158 pounds. Clabby insisted that he make the weight, so he ran around the block a couple of times and barely made It. Logan may have been weak when he entered the ring, but his weakness appeared more mental than physical. Perhaps he may be a regular fighter pome day in the future, but he cer tainly will have to learn very fast. The first preliminary, a six round affair between Stockyards Murphy of Chicago and Norman Stone of Los An geles, was called a draw, although Stone really won by a couple of city blocks. Bubbles Robinson, the Los Angeles colored lightweight, and Wil lie Robinson of this city stepped 10 rounds to a draw in the second ring Warmer. Although the sun shone brightly and upheld Sunshine Jim Coffroth's prediction, it was a cold, crisp day, and, as a result, the arena was but a little more than half filled.

University Soccer Teams Battle to a 1-1 Tie at Berkeley The University of California and Stanford soccer football teams battled to a 1 to 1 score yesterday in the second game of the series for the C. Y. Williamson cup and the inter collegiate championship. The first game was won by Stanford by 1 goal to 0. A third will now have to be played to determine the winner, this game having been set for February 22 at Stanford. Stanford scored its goal yesterday In the closing period of the first half, when Higgins got In a hot shot be tween the posts. Play was even In the second period Just as the first had opened, and It was not until a few minutes before full time that Thorpe of California tied the score with a well placed shot. The teams lined up as follows: California Position Stanford Shafnr Goal Butcher Davidson Bark Blodgett Holmes Back Glass Cask Half Hughes Miller Half Stelnhart Kellas Half Dutton Isaacs Forward.....

THE OLD MASTER, PAST AND PRESENT -: JEFF LIKES WORK OF RIVERS Former Champion Believes He Is Entitled to Another Bout With Ritchie JAMES J. JEFFRIES LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2S.—Joe Riv ers fought like a champion yesterday and his victory over Leach Cross was a natural result. Any time that Riv ers puts up such a fight he is worth a bet agalrurt any lightweight living. It waa the best battle I ever saw put up, and in going back over the fight by rounds I a munable to offer a single criticism of his tactics or of his conduct in the ring. ' Throughout the batUe he kept a cool head on his shoulders and used more brains in directing his efforts than I previously had given him credit for having. He fought a per fect battle in every respect. Refus ing to be rattled or to lose his head by the taunts of Cross, carefully plan ning his battle as he went along and boxing and fighting at his best form, he was invincible. There never was a time when I feared that he might lose, especially after the first three rounds. Rivers' one big fault in the past has been his carelessness in the ring, his proneness to lose his head when stung and leave himself open to attack by a wise ring general. Cross used every device known to him in an effort to get Rivers' goat, but the Mexican was steady at all times and refused to fall for any of it. In my opinion, this was one of the big factors in his victory. CROSS DESERVES CREDIT I can not criticise the battle that Cross put up. He fully lived up to his reputation for cleverness, brains, punch and courage, and is entitled to a great deal of credit for the showing be made against odds. The battle that Cross put up would win nine battles out of 10. I can not say that he was outclassed, but Rivers proved himself clever, faster, a better puncher and equally as cool headed. Any other sort of a battle would have produced different results for Rivers, no doubt. "While he was al ways leading by at least a slight mar gin. Cross was ever alert, watching constantly for a chance to get over his right and win the fight in a single punch, and he wag willing to mix it and take a chance. He is a shrewd ring general, and Rivers had to keep his head with hi mall the time to as sure victory for himself. Rivers clearly won the right to de mand a return match with Ritchie by his showing yesterday, and I would like to see these boys matched for a bout here. There may be something in the home air or in the home surroundings to make Rivers fight better here than elsewhere, but, anyway, if they meet again, I hope it will be staged here. Ritchie might defeat him again, but If Rivers would put up the same sort of a fight against him that he put up against Cross yesterday it would be a sensational scrap. RIVERS ALL THE WAY It may be that the distance was too great for Cross, but I hardly think so. He finished strong and full of fight, after standing up under a gruelling fire in the first half, bo the distance probably had little effect upon his chances. Rivers would have won just as de cisely had It been a 10 round affair in stead of double the distance. He was leading by the same margin, practi cally, at the start of the eleventh round. Both boys stripped in fine condition and the battle they put up proved that they had not exaggerated in statins? that they were fit for the best ofi'tr of their car—re. Thar* was nothing at any time during the bout to indicate that either was lacking in conditino, .—. - ALIENIST WANTED HERE L. W. NELSON Chinese writing and reading are hard on the brain, In our presence from Latin and Greek please refrain, But above is all simple and soft to explain, As compared to the questions they spring. When a guy springs such questions he's known as a bore, When he troubles us often and troubles us more, When he comes fooling round us and asks, "What's the score?" Such a question he constantly springs. Against that little question we can not complain, For we hear it quite often, and time and again, But the next thing he asks us proves weakness of brain, 'Twas a foolish old question be sprung. We had told him, for instance, that Detroit's ahead, When he jumped up an dasks us, "Who's playing?" he said. Thus proving he lacked matter gray in his head, So foolish the question he sprung. ATHLETIC CHATTER Congratulations to Herb Morton, the new Pacific association ten-mile road champion. Morton is the only real rival that Oliver Millard has over distance of five miles or more. A race between these two men for the Pacific association track cham pionship would be a big feature that the association could well stage In the spring. The race would undoubtedly bring out a large entry. It should be an annual affair just as the road race is. Morton has been in the public eye as a distance runner for the past few years ever since he attended Mountain View high. His win yes terday is ample proof of his ability to go against the best ten milers that can be pitted against him. * * * Once an indoor date is awarded to the first club applying for it, it is up to the Pacific association not to award any other date until after the first comer has pulled off Its meet. * * # With 7 to o staring them in the face the Yosemites made a great showing yesterday in coming from behind in the last period of play against the Originals, winning out 9 to 7. Nothing will do the Originals now but that a return game be played. These two teams are showing the class among the local old game teams and an other meeting would be welcomed by the fans. * * » Now that all the road races are a thing of the past, athletes will be pre paring themselves for the indoor meets. At the present time there are indications of at least two high class indoor meets. Every one is waiting to see which club will grab the first date. The pilot car of yesterday's road race made a big mistake In the park when It stopped In the center of the road with the flag hoisted on high. Morton mistook this as the turning point of the race, and went round it and started on his homeward course. He lost fully 15 yards by the mistake, not to mention lost energy. Edgar Stout never ran better in his life than he did yesterday, consid ering he had but three days" training. If Stout would go at things with # * * some method he would be one of the best distance men hereabouts. He has the pace for a mile runner If he was properly trained and used his head. The Call yesterday was able to re port In detail the enltre route of the road race through the courtesy of the Studebaker Automobile company, which placed a fine "6" at the disposal of the sports department to get the complete details of the race. * * * There is another titled Englishman anxious to lift the America cup. If our friend Sir Thomas Lipton fails with his four time Shamrock, then Sir Charles Allen of London will challenge for 1915. Sir Charles is one of England's best known yachtsmen and is the owner of the famous yacht Istria, which takes race after race at all the European regattas. Sir Charles will build a special yacht for the America cup race if necessary. We have not heard much of late of that $500,000 fund that John Bull was trying to raise to Bend his best to the next Olympiad. When our elongated Uncle Sammy needs the coin for the Berlin Olympiad he will ask for it a few months before the date and will not find any trouble in getting what he asks for. Sorry, Johnnie, that the money mar ket is so tight with you at present. # ♦ » Poor old John Bull. About the only championship that he now claims is th,& "suffragette golf title" and is It not rather odd that John takes such stock in this one odd title. Here is a list of the sports that cousin John Bull himself admits as having lost: Polo, America; golf, America; women's golf, England; rackets, America; yachting, America; lawn tennis (singles). New Zealand; lawn tennis (Davis cup), America; court tennis, America (Jay Gould); boxing, America-France; billiards (English), Australia; swimming, America-Aus tralia; Rugby football, South Africa- New Zealand; lacrosse, Canada; cycl ing, France-Germany; trotting horse, America; running horse, America; horse jumping, France-Russia; fenc ing, France; shooting (king's prize). Canada; skating, Sweden; track and field athletics. America. Ping-pong is not on the list. How ever, it might be taking a mean ad vantage of John if we revived the parlor game and got his goat at this, too. * * * The Detroit News of November 21 gives some very startling news that will be of deep interest to Stanford. The News states that the Stanford university is organizing a special intercollegiate football team to meet the Carlisle Indians, which are—or now or not—coming to this coast. Then the story goes on to tell about the Stanford stars, as follows: There is plenty of material at the university for a first class team. Gil lian, two years ago an All-Pennsyl vania prep school half, has been elect ed captain, and in addition to him there are many other former stars at the American game. Landreth, Dill and Siefert, formerly of Occiden tal college, the latter having been mentioned by Walter Camp for the All-American team; Bert West and Mike Tedford, former Santa Ana high stars: Ulrich, a prep star from Connecticut; McDaniel, a center from Utah; Scofleld, an eastern quarter back, and several other former phe noms have signified their intention of getting out for the team, so that there is plenty of material from which to pick a team to meet the redskins. We donft know of any other Stan ford university than the one down at Palo Alto, and the wonderful stars mentioned have never been heard of around the Stanford campus. * * * Palmer Puller, president of the California Rugby union, has been se lected by Manual Arts and Pomona schools of Los Angeles to referee the championship interscholastlc game of the south.

Hal Coffman SOUTH BOWS TO NORTH AT RUGBY Penalty Kick Gives Lads of This Section a 3 to 0 Victory The north beat the south yesterday in the All-Star interscholastlc game at Stanford by a score of 3 to 0. The game was played by specially selected teams from the high school 3of the rival parts of the state. Both teams were evenly matched and neither side was able to put the ball across the opposition goal line for a try, the only tally made during the game being from a penalty kick by Mickey Forbes. Strangely enough, the result of the northern victory was due to the Forbes brothers, who have shown remarkable football ability. Steu Forbes got a mark on the southern 25 yard line and his brother Mickey sent the ball over for the three points. The southern team showed to slight advantage in the actual scrum work, but In the loose the northern forwards shone. The northerners' back field was the best and attempted to open up the play at various times, while the south did not take any chances in this respect. Neither team showed to advantage in real combination. There was a lot of brilliant individ ual play on both sides. Walker, the northern halfback, being right up to •his best form and showing ability at working the scrum that marks the lad as a coming halfback in the Rugby code. The Forbes brothers were In the play all tue time and were instrumental in opening up the game at various times. Kinney, the southern halfback, was the best of the boys, though his work was not the equal of Walker's. Sutt of Redlands, Baker of Pomona and Whittemore all did good work in the southern scrum and general forward work. The teams lined up as follows: North—Fullback. Holllngswortu (Woodhmd); thiee-iruarters. Wallace (Palo Alto), K. Forbes (Boone academy), Walte (Stockton): tive eichtlis, S. Forbes (Boone academy. Stafford (Trinity school); halfback.

The race was run off by the local Young Men's Christian association under sanction of the Pacific Athletic association. Twenty-three athletes started and 21 of them finished the course. From the starting gun it was evident that the race would be a contest betweeen Stout, Mauldin, Morton and Spanton, this quartet opening up a big lead on the rest of the field, and eventually took the first four places. Morton took command at the mu seum on the outgoing leg through the park, and from that point on was never headed. The other three men had a big fight for the next three places. At the stadium, which was the half way mark, Morton was timed in 27:56 1-5, leading Mauldin by a few yards. The balance of the race was easy for Morton, the incoming five miles seeing Stout come up into second place, with the backmarkers changing positions frequently and making a fight between the Pastime and Y. M. C. A. runners for the team prize. When the points were eventually counted it was found* that both clubs had tallied 40 points, making the team championship an even break for their organizations on points. President Elliott's attention was called to the tie score, and he decided that as the race was a P. A. A. cham pionship the rules of that body gov erned the contest. The rule on tie score says: "In case of a tie on points the team whose individual member finished nearest to first place will be the winner." With the winner a Pas time man and the third man a Pas timer, the team prize goes to that club. HOW THEY FINISHED Name and Club— Time 11. E* Morton. Pastime 86:66 S-B E. Rout, unattached 56:00 4-5 A.

WAR FAILS TO STOP HORSES Big Meet at Juarez Track Is Opened in a Blaze of Glory * PETE CLARK EL PASO. Tex., Nov. 28.—Most bril liant was the opening of the fifth winter meeting of the Jockey club at Juarez, which began yesterday. Fully 5,000 persons attended. The weather was like early spring and the track conditions absolutely perfect. So far as conditions at the Juarea course yesterday were concerned, an onlooker did not discern that war ever had prevailed in Mexico. Leading citizens of America and Mexico mingled together in the huge crowd like brothers, seemingly inter ested only in witnessing the high class racing, which was one of the best opening cards ever run off on this track, the meeting of which will run 100 days or more this season. The feature race was the $1,500 Juarez handicap, which aroused a lot of interest. The field was a high class one, several speed marvels being among the starters. Iron Mask, J. Livingston's star sprinter, was en tered in this event, but was an ab sentee from the post, owing to Trainer Goldblatt not believing him up to a hard race at present, he having given him but little work since his arrival here. He was breezed this morning three furlongs in :37 2-5, and will undoubt edly be ready to race in a couple of weeks. Panzareta won the Juarez handicap in the hardest kind of a drive from Mimorioso, which was badly outpaced in the early part. Useeit was a strong contender at all times. Seven bookmakers drew stands in the ring and one in the field. Among them were Roy Offutt. L Ham, Willie Applegate, Frank Shannon, John Lew is, J. S. Hughes and John Troy. Bookmaker George Rose is among the absentees. He will be here after the first of the year, remaining in San Francisco until after the holidays.
