Y THE TIMES PAGE SKVES BRAVES MAY YET HAVE AN OUTFIELD; SIGN RABBIT POWELL OF PROVIDENCE LEONARD PUTS BUT mm ff tx - - , r ' W x 4 " Lightweight King Stops the Featherweight Champ in Third Round. PHILADELPHIA. July 26. Benny Leonard, lightweight champion of the world, knocked out Johnny Kilhane. the featherweight king, just before the end of the third round of their scheduled si-round battle at Shibe Park last night. At the time Kilbane was on the floor with a count of five hanging over him. Just as the timekeeper reached for his bell. Jimmy Dunn, the defeated man's manager and second, threw a towel into the ring. It was a merciful act on the rrt of Kilbane's mentor, who has also been Johnny's lifelong friend. Kilbane could have, gone no further. He climbed game ly to his feet, but his legs wer- paralyz ed from the right hook to the jaw that finished him. He staggered and reeled backward all over the ring and would have fallen again but for the fact that his seconds rushed through the ropes and acrried him to his corner. It was Leonard's fight from start to finish. He outboxed and outslugged his lighter opponent all the way. with the exception of a right urrercut that Johnny landed in the second round. Johnny failed to get home any other blows except a few long tapping lefts. Starting the third round- Leonard realized his superiority. "While Tie had been tapping and Jsbbing before, he row let his blows go with decision and force behind them. The round was not twenty seconds old before . Leonard crossed a terrific right to the chin. The punch sent Kilbane against the ropes in Benny's corner and Johnny sank to his haunches. Leonard backed away and gave his opponent plenty of chance to arise., then he tore inagain. .fc: Ray "Rabbit" Powell. The Boston Braves have finally decided to get hold of a regular out field and show a little strength in this department. The Braves have al ways been weak in the outer gardens and not since the world's series days of Mann, Whitted and Moran have they had any real outfield class. The recent purchase of Ray "Rabbit" Powell, of "the Providence International league club is cheering news to Braves fans. Powell is one of the outfield stars of the minors, speedy in the field and on the bases. SO. SIDE A. C. JRS. WHIP SHAMROCKS The South Side A. C.

While the- ex ecutive committee of the National Col legiate Athletic Association holds only an advisory position in its relations with the individual members of the as sociation, the result of the coming con ference to consider the status of col lege t ports during the war will have a far-reaching effect on intervarsity ath letics. The organization, with a mem bership of close to 200 of the leading colleges and universities of the country,' includes on its roster the names of all the principal institutions ajid sectftmal groups. As a result the conference at 'Wash ington on August 2 will in reality be a gathering of the athletic authorities of th euniversities and colleges of the country for a national varsity expres sion of opinion regarding what form, if any, college athletics shall take during the company collegiate year. It is quite evident from various forecases of indi vidual sentiment among the prospective delegates that there Is to be a wiUe difference of opinion on this subject, and it would not be surprising If the discussion was both lengthy and com plexed. Sectional sentiment Is certain to have an important bearing on the attitude of the various delegates. Considered broad ly the middle and far west may" be said to be in favor of a continuation of In tervarsity spot, even though limited by certain restrictions deemed necessary in view of war conditions. In the east there is not the same unanimity of opin ion on this point. If the mere number of college were to be considered, it is probable that those in favor of continu ing athletics would be found to be in the majority. Those institutions which are opposed to this course, however, include several of the largest and oldest in the country and the absence of their so-called "classic" intervarsity contests Is ex pected in some quarters to set a fashion j Look at Them! j tney are smoking the vfiw anaan Club iPiisftiSi THe test iobacc fr WfiWSf . pipe and cigarette 1 V"?
