GIBBONS IN LINE TO
ACQUIRE 2 TITLE BELTS
New York, Aug. 31.Mike Gib
bons, the St. Paul phantom, who is
conceded to be one of the greatest
middleweights in the world today,
is facing a new path to fame and for
tune. The adoption of the new
weight may mean a great deal and
undoubtedly Mike will take advan
tage of the opportunity to pile up
the filthy lucre He is in line to ac
quire two world's championship titles.
New Scale of Weights.
When the boxing promoters of the
country met at Cleveland last week
to launch an organization which
would elevate the sport, the first big
movement presented was the adop
tion of a new scale of weights. In
this scale, the welterweight poundage
mark was lifted from 145 to 147
pounds, while the middleweight here
after will be 160 instead of 158.
Gibbons Makes 147 Easily.
Gibbons is making 147 pounds at
3 o'clock, and tha mark is com
paratively easy for the phantom.
Practically all of his knockouts were
scored in bouts which called for 145
or 147 pounds weight, while beating
heavy middleweights has developed
into a pleasant pastime for the St
Paul lad Therefore, with the world
of welterweights forced to take on
battles at 147 pounds, the ambitious
Gibbons will find a big field of op
ponents lined up for plucking. He
aspires to become champion in two
classes, and from the present out
look nothing but a setback in the
McFarland contest can batter down
his aspirations He has the world
beaten blind at cleverness he is a
two-handed fighter, who is equally
strong on the offensive and defensive,
and, too, he can hit hard enough to
send an opponent into the land of
dreams, and the exodus path leading
200-MILE CANOE RACE
MAY BE ONLY BIG CAN-
ADIAN 1915 SPORT EVENT
Montreal, Que Aug. 31 What
probably will be the only big sport
ing event of the year held in Canada,
because of the war, is the 200-mile
canoe race which will take place dur
ing the fiist week in September.
One of the trustees of the Graham
Browne cup, the trophy fought for in
the race, was violently opposed to
holding this contest during the war,
but the other trustees overruled him
and the race will be held as usual
The canoe race became an inter
national affair last year, when the
trustees allowed enti ies from any pai
of the world It is expected that
there will be a number of American
entries this year.
MILLERS TO PLAY POST

Minneapolis, Aug 31 The Millers

series with the Saints after the clo3e
of the American association season.

BILL JAMES ON HIS
WAY TO JOIN BRAVES

James, the California pitcher, who
played an important part last year
in the fight of the Boston National
leagife for the championship, is on
his way to rejoin the Braves.
He was suspended on his own re
quest several weeks ago on account
of a sore arm and now believes that
he is in condition to help the Braves

BLIND RACE TRACK
OWNER LEAVES BIG ESTATE
Chicago, Aug. 31.John Condon,
who was blind for 15 years before his
death and was the owner of several
large race tracks, left an estate val
ued at $460,000 to his widow and
children, according to his will filed
for probate here today.
NEW RULES FOR WATER POLO
New York, Aug 31.A new code
of rules governing college water polo,
which has been adopted by the swim
ming committee of the National Col
legiate Athletic association, will soon
be submitted to that association for
adoption. The aim, of the revisers
is to minimize the chances for scrim
mage in massed formations, prevent
indiscriminate tackling and penalize
severely unnecessary rough work.
They have divided all fouls into three
classes and compiled a full list of of
fenses under each heading. The pen
alties are described as drastic. *i^9&
Agra, Kan., Aug.
the recent baseball
ment here Adams, pitcher for
the local team, made a sensa

games he hurled. In the three
contests he allowed only nine
hits and struck out 5? of the
104 batters who faced him.
F-4 IS RAISED
NO BODIES FOUND
Honolulu, Aug. 31.The submar
ine F-4 has been raised and is fully
exposed. Searchers, however, hav*
been unable to find a single trace of
the sailors' bodies. It is believed
that the bodies may have been washed
out of a large hole in the submarine
while it was being raised.
The wrecked condition of the in
terior of the vessel will probably
make it impossible to hold an inves
tigation as to the cause of the acci
PITCHER SENT TO ROCK PILE
Council Bluffs, la., Aug. 31.Dan
McCarty was sentenced to ten days
on the city rock ptle for vagrancy in
police court today. He was once a
pitcher for the Philadelphia National
club and hurled for Omaha in the
Western League about 1904. He was
arrested by ofiicers who knew him
personally in the old days.
A MODERN NEED.
rhey May Be Brought About by Intelli
gent and Efficient Planning.
A contributor to the Philadelphia
Public Ledger deplores the lack of
playgrounds in our small towns and
villages and gives the following sug
gestions for starting a movement to
secure such a playground In a small
How shall the work be started?
Convince a few just persons of the
importance of the work Then ask
the neighbors to come together. Let
the trysting place be on a neutral
ground, where Ideal Jealousies cannot
creep in. Try first to convince your
citizens as individuals before they
meet as a committee. Always ask the
opinion of those whose opposition you
fear. Remember Benjamin Franklin's
advice, "Never try to convince by ar
gument, but invite them to help, and
they will rarely fail you." The com
mittee should pass a resolution in fa
vor of the plan and recommending
their action to the municipal author!
ties. Do not write to them, but let the
prime mover of the scheme, with all
the influential citizens, go directly to
the village fathers and in loud, clear
tones say, "We must have a play
ground for our town!"
Do not ask for just a ball ground.
This is good, but not good enough
You want not only a field for big boys,
but also a playground for your chil
dren, both girls 'and boys, and a little
park, a pleasant place with trees and
seats, wheie tired mothers with their
babies and the old grandparents can
sit and rest while they watch their
children play, a shelter in case of
showers and where the village band
can give its concerts. There should
be apparatus, such as swings and giant
strides, a seesaw and quoits and, above
all, a teacher or superintendent, as no
playground succeeds without supervi
To acquire this money is needed. If
possible secure a nucleus, a gift from
some well to do citizen, but do not de
pend upon it. Ask all those of moder
ate means to help, and,'above all, do
not forget to ask the aid of the poor
and humble, as they are the most gen
erous of all. Last, the town or village
authorities must give to the fund. A
very good way is to start a playground
on a small scale as proof to the skep
tics that you are right. The methods
of raising money vary, according to
the locality. Subscriptions, public
school entertainments, flower days,
fairsevery means can be used. Re
member, if faith will remove moun
tains it will also move politicians. All
this work can be done and has been
done in the township of Lower Merlon,
Montgomery county, Pa., where the
writer of this, with the help pf many,
both high and low, has seen her dreams
more than realized, as soon five parks
and playgrounds will enrich her town

leaven the whole."
Some of the best'thoughts pass so
quickly that memory fails to hold

'THE ROSARY" AT REX THEATER
"The Rosary," the third Sehg Red
Seal play released through V. S E
will be shown at the Rex theater to
morrow and Thursday. Two mat
inees will be given each afternoon at
one and three o'clock. This produc
tion is in seven reels and is adapted
from the famous play by Edward E
Rose. The story, which is too well
known to need retelling, deals with
the unjust suspicions of a husband
whose erring wife shields her erring
sister, and the near tragedy which
results. The part of Father Kelly,
who is really the chief character, is
taken by Charles Clary Kath^yn
Williams is the wife and Wheeler
Oakman the husband Supporting

Selig stars. The production was

The first thing it would sav is "GIVE ME PURI-
TY GASOLINE, PLEASE". Some fellows talk
to their machine as they do their horse or dog, and
by its actions know that they desire the best gaso-
line. One car owner said, "My car now insists on
being filled with PURITY GASOLINE, It tells
me by its actions that I must not ^expect the best
kind of service unless I feed it the best kind of gas-
oline, and I have learned by experience that that
gasoline is PURITY GASOLINE".
Saves Almost One-third
If you pay the same price for gasoline and one kind
would propel your car 12 miles per gallon and the
other 16 miles, which would you buy?
