Only last Sunday the colored boys lhowed their class when they traveled to Gary and defeated the fast Steel City team by the score of 3 to 0.

When the ten rounds cf fighting, between Eddie M.Goorty and George Chip ended here last night in the windup of John Wag ner's show, MoGoorty had a shade the best of the milling. Ed's ring general ship, his cleverness and his punch, though displayed better in other . matches, won the Camp Grant corporal the match. Fd didn't step Into his foe as In former contents. H allowed his op ponent to get Fet too often and this deprived him of winning off by himself, but there can be no dispute as to who was h better man. The closing rounds of the, battle were Fd's best. In these he took more chances, shot over his vicious left and crossed the right, and while they didn't damage Chip's fighting makeup, they added points to his lcad. Eddie Blocks "Wild Ones. Chip would lunge at his opponent with m clous swings, which EdLe either stepped inside of or blocked. One ef Chin's runches cost Eddie two teeth. uman of yet Piano playing is without beauty when deli cate shading is lacking. The touch of an artist brings to life the sweet strains that thrill our be ing. Manv persons enn nlar the piano after a fashion that locks tonial beauty. It is because the piano responds to exactly the touch good, bad or otherwise of the performer. No difference how splendid the piano, the music will not be charming unless the keys are struck with artistic touch. Many pianists with years of practice never ac quire musical touch. Many player pianos are all mechanical because the makers never studied touch".

June 26 On Juns the Whttlntf Trapshootera dub stag ed a special event for the "old time" trapshooters by way of showing special attention to the veterans of the sport in this vicinity . The sport of trapshooting ws first started under very crude terms In about the year 1S0 so that as compared with some other shorts, it i si 111 a com paratively new game. There are a good many mn, howi-ver, who have been trap shooters almost sine., the incep tion of the sport and wh! many jtre not as active as foriis.-rlv. there ar still a large number of real "old timers' who shoot frequently and a gnat many more who 6l;oot occasionally. Gun clubs throughout the country have planned to s'age an "old timers' event" this spring. Special prize? of an attractive and appr. ..r.-late nature are offered. In the distribution of these prizes an "old timer" In considered as a shooter who starter! ehoo'lng at the traps fifteen or more years ago. A handsome gold "old timers" lapel but ton will be awarded the "old timer" making the high score on the fifty tar gets in the "old timers' event." which, however, were cn pivots. Eddie was too fast for the eastern middleweight, who played chiefly for the body. In the clinches Chip tried the loop the loop punch, without avail. The visitor was short in his wallops and missed a few punches that carried great' force. There wasn't a great deal of excite ment In the first three rounds. The fourth found them in real ac'ion. and from then cn it was a fairly Interesting1 fight. George had a peculiar style of walk ing away from his foe, then turning hurriedly and letting fly. This shift bothered Fd. Few staggering wallops were landed by the mlddlewelgh's. but those that connected mostly belonged to McGoorty. Fight fans of Chicago, Racine and Milwaukee took advantage of Jchn Wagner's latft show of the season and filled the arena, about J2,Ifi! in money value. Buy a Thrift Stamp today.
