KOUCK BODY PUNISHED
IN BOOT WITH GIBBONS
Although Cut Up Lancaster Man Goes
the Limit During the Ten Rounds
and Made Mike Fight Hard to
the End
Now York, May -T. —Mike Gib
bon?. the master boxer, met a tough
customer at the St. Nicholas A. C. last
night in Leo Houck, ot* Lancaster, who
outweighed him seven pounds. Despite
the fart that Mike nearly cut the
Quaker to pieces the Ijancaster man
was tearing in at the finish and in the
ninth round by sheer weight and ag
gressiveness landed several hard punch
es and ha i Gibbons doing his best to'
even up tl.e round.
In the sixth round Houck landed a
low blow, but it did not hurt and was
overlooked. While the men were bang
ing away for dear life in the tenth an
other low blow caught Gibbons and]
doubled him up. He recovered in time,
to finish with a display of speed ami j
accuracy that had his opponent dazzled.
There were more clean hits crowded
into the first round than are generally
to be seen in a whole encounter and
all were landed by Gibbons. In less than
thirty seconds a light right opened an
old cut under Houck's eye and the crim
son poured forth so that both men
were covered with gore at the finish of
the round. Gibbons used every kind of J
punch in this session anil threw off |
Houck's leads with the greatest ease.
Houck took plenty of punishment in the
second, but Mike let up as soon as he
found he had his opponent at his nier
ev. The fight nearlv ended just before

The same clever work on the part of
Gibbons with little actual results con
tinued in the third, but in the fourth
Mike let up again and by sending iu n
tew body punches and driving Mike to
the ropes the Lancaster man was en
titled to an even break, the best he got
all the way through except perhaps ill
the ninth round, when he surprised both
Gibbons and the crowd bv carrying the
tight to his man. From the fourth to
the ninth round there was the usual
display of speed and science by Gib

EXPERTS PICK CORNELL
FOR INTBR-COLLECIATES
ItMcjms and Pennsylvania Look Best
For Big Meat to Be Held To-mor
row and Saturday on Franklin
Field
Philadelphia. May 27.—The advance
guard of an army of America's be*t
track and Held athletes, represeui
more than twenty-five colleges and uni
versities of the East and Middle West,
reached the city this morning for the
fortieth annual championship meet of
the Intercollegiate A. A. to foe held on
Franklin Field to-morrow and (Satur
day. The Cornell team arrived in time
for breakfast. The Ithicans' xtay will
be very short, however, because they
are going to Atlantic City, where they
will remain until to-morrow morning.
The Michigan team will arrive about
noon, with Harvard, Vale. Amherst,
Holy Cross. M. I. T., Svravuse, Colby,
Brown and Bowdoin getting here late
this afternoon. Franklin Field was at
the disposal of the visiting athletes
this afternoon.
The University of Pennsylvania ath
letes left the city last night for At- 1
lantic City, where they will sojourn !
until Friday morning. All of the 1
Quakers took their final workouts yes
terday afternoon. With the exception
of Loekwood, the sprinter, and Dorizas,
the shot putter, all the men are in the
best of condition. Coach Orton thinks
that Loekwood will got back his
strength at the shore, and that Dorizas
is so much improved that he is a scor
ing possibility.
Speculation as to tlie probable win-
ner ot' the big inert is unprecedented.
Most of tlie experts think the tight will
Vie between Pennsylvania »nd Cornell,
with the Ithieans having slightly the j
better of the argument. The Quakers
realize that to win their men must
score heavily in the sprints. Coach Or
ton has devoted a great deal of time
to Captain Lippincott, Patterson, Look
wood and Kaufma.n, who will run in
the short distance events and confi
dently believes that they will make
good.
It is realized that the strength of
the Cornell team is in the great all
around athlete Richards in the high
jump, broad jump and shot put and
the Ithaean's distance runners. The
Quakers are hopeful that McKenzie.
of Princeton, in the mile, and Overton,
of Vale, and Southworth, of Harvard,
in the two miles, are likely to upset
Cornell's calculations in the distance
runs. The injury to Braun and the ill
ness of Trenholm, the two Dartmouth
hurdlers, is likely to help Cornell more
than Pennsylvania because tbc Ttha
cans have three or four good hurdlers
who are likely to score, although not
to win any of the events.
On account of the keenness of the
competition it is almost certain that |
new records will be made in the pre
liminary contests to morrow. All per
formances made to-morrow will count
as records, and in the broad jump,
hammer throw anil shot put, new marks
are looked for. Bailey, the great Maine
hammer thrower, is counted 011 to make
a new record in the hammer throw be
cause ho has already thrown 170 feet.
Record times are also looked for in
the quarter and half-mile trials. In the
qiurter-mile there will be three heats
and every man will have to beat 51
seconds to qualify for the finals and 50
seconds to win. There will be the same
high class in the sprints.

RED SOX FEAR LANNIN
Suspended Pitcher Says Harsh Things
About Club Owner
Boston, Mass., May 27. —Pitcher
"Dutch" Leonard, of the Boston Red
Sox, who was suspended for failing
to get into condition to pitch, is charged
with giving out statements criticising
President Lannin's methods of running
the team.
Among other things Leonard is al
leged to have said is that Lannin bosses
the team and that Manager Carrigan
has nothing whatever to Rav. Leonard
also claims that Joe Wood was fined
for permitting Schalk, of Chicago, to
make a base hit instead of passing him,
nnd that the players were so afraid to
return to the hotel after losing a game
that they remained away and bought
their own meals.
AFFIDAVIT FOR FRANK BY WIFE
Swears to OonvictwUHab's Whereabouts
on Day of Phagan Murder
Atlanta, Ga., May 27. — An affidavit
i by Mrs. Leo M. Frank, detailing her
! knowledge of her husband's movements
I an.l actions on the day 'Marv Phagan
was murdered, will be presented before
i the State Prison Commission here newt,
j Monday at the hearing on Frank's ap- ;
| ( lication for commutation of his death,
| sentense to life imprisonment. I\lrs. j
| 'Prank was not permitted, under State |
! law. to.testify at the trial.
FraA also will be tendered as a wit- |
ness by his counsel, it was stated, j
When asked yesterday if Frank would
be heard, a member of the commission
said that no applicant for a pardon or j
commutation ever had heen allowed to
appear in such proceedings, anil he was
not prepared to say whether the prece- i
dent would be broken in Frank's case. J
Albert S. Osborn, a handwriting ex- |
pert, submitted a report to Governor
Slaton yesterday, expressing belief that
Frank had nothing to do with the
"murder notes" which played an im
portant fart in the trial.
It was learned last night that So
licitor General Dorsev, who prosecuted
'Frank, had filed with the commission
a protest against commutation of sen
j tencc.

I Lancaster County Sect Takes Issue With
National Conference
Lancaster, May 27. —The
county sect of Dunkar.ds is not in ac
; cord with Tuesday's action of the Na
; tioual Conference of Dunkards of the
' I'nited States and Canada at Dayton,
! 0., in deciding that Dunkards must not
i own automobiles. That sect of Dunk
] ards is known as River Brethren, and
; differs from the Church of the Breth-
I rcn of Lancaster county, a very nunicr-
I ous body and more liberal in educa
j tion and manner of dress anil in the in
dulgence of luxuries.
The Lancaster county denominations
! is noted for its encouragement of ad
vanced education, anil maintains a fine
! college at Elizabefhtown. The members
| observe the ceremony of feet washing
i strictly and give away food left from
| their love feasts. Hundreds of these
i l<ancaster county Dunkards own auto
mobiles, this being approved by their
fellow members and regarded as a con
venience of which any one may without
violation of the spirit of their doctrine
avail himself.

j Car Gets Beyond Control of Lad Who
Changes Gear
Wilkes-Rarre, Pa., May 27.—Chang
ing a gear on his father's automobile,
which had been left standing by the
chauffeur yesterday in front of the home
of Lyman H. Howe, the moving picture
! producer, of this city, Harold Howe was
j unable to control the machine, which, i
j after dashing across fashionable Riv- j
i eisiile drive, plunged over the bank, i
■ thirty feet, to the Susquehanna river
and lodged in nineteen feet of water.
! Young Howe was able to extricate him
| self, swim to the surface and then to
j shore, a short distance away. The ma
chine has been recovered, and shows
| little damage as a result of the plunge.
The chauffeur left the engine of the
j car running, but the gear was at the
neutral point, when young Howe shifted
jit into high gear. 'He was unable to
stop the engine before the machine
| leaped into the water.
