This fact is now being discussed by leading promoters An immediate action |s being planned to bring mat ter- to a finish or a positive match within the squared cirele^instead of the method now being used to ignore these fighters. In several instances where there was char superiority •hottii by past ring performances, ami general high record, there could he but • lie reason why these fighters of the Race are prevented from bringing the matter to a showdown. For instance, it is an acknowledged act by experts of the game that Harry j Will-, heavyweight Negro pugilist, is '• far superior to Jack Dempsey; Kid i Norfolk, the light heavyweight, is bet ter than either Carpentier or Gibbons. This latter fact is in a position of cer tain conviction among the authorities and general critic>. In fact. large sum of money are waiting to back the Kid against either of these two last stated, with a reasonable assurance of easy victory, and the.other a decision with out reasonable protest. Now in the case of Kan am a Joe Gan-, a famous referee made the state ment at the ringside of a recent light, the- Dempsey-Carpentier matVh: "I will he willing to lay $25,000 that Pan ama Joe < ians can put it over either Johnny Wilson, the mid. champ.. <»r any one near his class." Tor, and in view of this sentiment in high places, and the existing preju dice which is barring or handic apping these and many other Negro lighters, several of these are contemplating and even planning to go to Kurope and gain fresh honors and laurels and then return to this country and force the hand of their enemies in the shape of prejudicial promoters and ‘‘pussyfoot - ing fighters " MONARCHSLOSE ANOTHER CONTEST TO BUCKEYES Kansas City, Sept. 11.—A single l»y Rile with two out irt the ninth drove in Smith with the winning run, the Co lumbus Buckeyes again defeating the Monarchs, 3 to 2.

RUBE BAS TEAM OF HITLESS WONDERS (By the Bystander.) The facts of the causes leading t*» tlu- present high standing of the lead ing team of tbedein'ue are being dis cussed throughout the baseball world. It is a paramount feature that Ruin team now standing at the top of the league i*. due t<> a .few outstanding truths which are -hilling in their path: l-'or instance, the team, like the edd White Sox. are vlt' d:for their ehgdii1 ity tee the title- or “Ilitless wonde-r* hut, ncverthele*-. U cannot he deniee that their ability to put over the big! spots of inside hall is not equalled b any team in tin league. A study o their game will dfcelosc that many <■ the runs are pulbel over the home -ad by their inimitable squeeze plav. The team in such ca-es working with ‘ lock like* precision of both mental and phy sical efforts. Considering that there i* but one truly outstaneling star on the team, namely, Torrentie, who i* acknowl edged te> be- a strong factor in uphold ing the high mark attained, but atp-t noting all the points possible- by which the team could have reached this posi tion there remain* hut tone- single- fact deserving highest commendation: Rube’s baseball sense is responsible [ for the present position. I______ To The You Know 4Em. Editor 1 know you know that young lady who had to go off in the woods all by her>elf at the Assembly Picnic? Oh, you must know her because she wort such pretty shoes and had such small feet Well, those pretty shoes and small feet caused her to go off into the woo’ds by herself. It took her an hour to get those shoes back on. Oh, you'must know those parlor hounds and lounge hazards who seem to he able to stay in anybody's house all day long and more than half the night if there is a good sofa around? Oh, you must know them because they have been all the rage this summer as most of the summer girls seemed to have preferred this type to the rest as others came and left while the lounge lizards seemed to stay on fore vsr. I know you know that lady who sat upon her front steps after her beau had left and fell asleep? Well, she awoke with a start when the milk man put the milk in her lap at 4:30 a. m. Now she says goodnight on the in side of the house. Mother insisted on it. You certainly must know that en gaging young man from the cast who lias mentioned engagement to several of the visiting girls? Well, he takes pains not to mention anything about marriage but merely talks about being engaged. Some of them fell for it. but came out all right when they com pared notes with several others who had had the same 'experience. I know you know that “flat’’ in Indiana Avenue, where great excite ment reigned Saturday night? Well, there was no murder commit! «l. d h< shots heard b\ all in the nei .hborho• d were only a few h'ottles ol hoim- drew that went oft without warning as they i stood in the window near the bedside I of the “proprietor ' of that flat. Never I let home brew work by itself. It i> I like a woman, it requires attention. I know you know the new rival m I the socializing lawyer? Oh. you must | know him .because you see him almost 1 a . much as you see the other Social izing Lawyer No. 1 will have to wat > his step or some of his laurels will he taken away by Socializing l .\ yet No. 2. I know you know the lady who ha 'such bewitching c urls? Oh, you mu ' know her because you must have j speculated too as to whether tin \ are reaj. or “unreel." Well, the question is settled. She left most of thorn in a taxi cah the other night. Nosey heard her calling the taxi office en quiring about th<m. You know reel curls cost real money. I know you must know about that beautiful triangle in society's big lift ? Oh. you must have heard about it. Well, two part" of that triangle will soon separate. Gptqpips Row <ays that flic lady will be the loser as both legs of ,tber triangle.*arc married. The lady says. “Oh how beautiful it was while ii lasted.” If You See It In The Whip, It Is True. ==•-===----—^»----- -. - ' By Bennie A discussion is afoot as to which of the many' Colored athletes has been of the most service to the Race in helping to establish a place for us in public opinion. Who. of the many champions produced l>y the Afro Xmerican.s, has been looked upon as a real representative of the darker members of this, our glorious coun try? *That is the question. Almost every one of the numerous standard hearers has hi-* follower- who contend for their champion. But facts arc what really count, and not parti san ism. Jack Johnson, the great pugilist who defeated such notable men as Tommy Burns, Jim Jeffries, Jack O'Brien and Stanley Ketchel, and was the recog nized world’s heavyweight champion, heads the li.-t. Then follow other chaitipions, Joe Cans, George Dixon, bred Pollard and Sol Butler, with here and there a ball player mentioned. The professional athlete leads the list and seems to have the call with the popu lace. But has the professional athlete a just claim to the honors? Cor years, boxing (prize lights) has been under a ban, a despised and dis redited pastim*-. And much of the odium cast on the manly art has been because of ihe Negro’-* phenomena! success in the squared circle. No list of prize lighters would 1 »<* representa live of the game’s best that did not li-t two-thirds of the men named as Ne groes. The nation’s best were wont to say prize lighters were on a level ! with dog lights, or even lower. And i as for horse racing, in the days of slavery every Southern gentleman had his Negro jockeys and stable attend- i ants. So, on the whole, the profes- ; sional Negro athlete has meant little to the Race. People were ready, andJ with M>me resemblance of truth, to discredit a lighter’s achievements, if he happened to he Black. One of the leading newspapers of America, the New York American (New York City), pictured Jim Jef fries and Jack Johnson as a gorilla, a tiger and a snake in the order named. The editorial following was to the Butler.) effect that the snake could whip the | tiger, the tiger the gorilla, the gorilla the Negro, and the Negro the white man But this was because the white man had developed his brain instead of bestial strength. In other word-, the white man was at the top. the Ncr gro next, and the others in the order named. But when athletes like J. 1*. Taylor of Pennsylvania, Clarence Mathews of Harvard. Fred Pollard ol Brown. Btnga Dismond of an Illinois institu tion. and Sol Butler of Dubuque, to gether with scores of others, and more coming every day, the white American was forced to recognize us as a promi nent factor in the nation’s progress. Now. the three athletes I believe have been of the greater benefit to us are John P. Taylor, the old Pennsyl vania quarter miler inter-collegiate champion; Howard P. Dr*w. the na tional 100 and 220 yard dash champion of recent years, and Sol Butler, the recognized world’s broad jump cham pion of 1919-20. Few of the pn -gnt day followers of • thleties know much about Taylor. But the great Pennsylvania athlete es tablished a place in the heart of tin* Pennsylvania faculty that <1 id much to lift "the ban on Negro students at the famous oht school. And John P.'s gen tlemanly conduct on and off the field while a member of the American Olympic team of 1908 at London, Fug land, placed us on a higher plane in the Furopean’s eyesight. Howard P. Drew, known in the Fa--t as ‘ I’lie Springfield Flier," was a favorite among the elite of the big white universities. Drew was one of tin* most likeable chaps that ever walked, and for that reason one ot tin- uin-t popular of the Colored ath letes. The last time 1 met the great little runner was in Paris, lie was in charge of the athletes (all white) who were in training for a series of athletic events prior to the big inter-allied games Drew has done a great deal to eliminate the prejudice against us. Sol Butler, one of the greatest all around athletes, electrified and startled the athletic world by invading a field that the white athletes thought no Ne gro would even qualify in, the running broad jump. His athletic record, gen tlemanly deportment and genial dis position has done much to raise us in the world’s estimation. Sol's athletic life is too well known by the public and his decoration |>y the King ni Montenegro meant, 4 wdrUkiPt. prestige t6 us. • „ LI1CDLN COACH ISSUES CALL FOR _ ' IJ N CO L N INI V E R S IT Y, Sept. 17. 1921.—The tire works ot" the nine teen twenty-one season commenced at Lincoln University on Wednesday, September 1-4 Coach Shellburhe is sued the call tor all candidates to re port at the University >n that day for preliminary practice. I 'ic preliminary fundamentals will occupy the whole of the first week's practice, with a view to looking over some material which gave promise last year and of getting a line on the new men who are en tering for the first time. Shelllnirne has t!ie entire Alumni and student bodies of tin- University behind him in the drive to return things in Foot ball to “Normalcy." Dr. \Y. G. Alex ander. the graduate manager, and A. D. Williams the student manager are bending every elTort to do all that can possibly he done t<» insure the suc cess toward which ail are aiming. All font tail candidates will report to Co^ch Shellburhe and Capt. Laws m the gymnasium at Lincoln at 2‘P. ! M.. September 14, ready for a stren uous season of wdrk. Practice will be held both morning and afternoon till college opens. Most of tlie meii who made their letter last year are returning to school this year, and' there are indications that many of the hfew men who are expected will displace some of the “Varsity” men of. past years. Rumor has it that ‘Sam’ Parr, who is eligible to play one more year is returning to complete some work. This will glad den the hearts of all Lincolnites who saw last Thanksgivings' Catastrophe!
