time, he would have trotted them
along the goose egg route.
AVarnock had everything but the spit
ball in his repertory, and he did not
need this, as the Millers were unable
to connect with the curves he served
up. While the Millers got a few scat
tering infield hits, there was nothing
tliat looked like a real hit until the
sixth inning. That came when it did
no damage. ....

The Internationals took the 22d
down the line to the tune of 9 to 4
Sunday afternoon in a ene-sided game.
One sided because the Internationals
had it all their own way.
The soldiers opened up with two
runs in the second, and it looked
like they would carry off the game.
But the Internationals allied, and from
then on had it all their own way.
Scanlan, the shortstop for the Inter
I nationals, was easily Ihe star of the
; same. His playing at mat position

what looked like real hits.
Kay was on the stab for the sol
diers, and as a result there was a
considerable fattening of the batting
averages of the Interaationals. Kay
started going up in the 4th inning,
and but for the support of his team
mates would have sirffered a worse
defeat than he did. It must have been
his off day.

Saturday's Game Avtful.
Before a poor crowd. In poor weath
er, a poor game of ball was played Sat
urday afternoon. The riot ended in a
game for the Bakers over their In
ternational rivals. The score, 12 and
7, screams for itself.
Features of the game were wretched
catching by Doering. who needs a tele
scope to see second, and terrific field
ing by everybody. In the third Trimble
trilled off a tripple. and came in; Saur,
while running bases, fell asleep at first
and was tagged "it." In the seventh
Doering hit an actual home run, which
is scored as a triple, and that's all it
was. It sailed into center, and by the
time the fielders were through toying
with the sphere, the runner arrived at
the domestic platter.
The horrible detail of the contest is

The two men have been training there
for some time, and reports have it that
they are in jjood condition. There is
no reason t5. believe otherwise, for
Johnson would be a fool to jeopardize
his championship title by ignoring his
training, and Flynn could not afford to
be in anything but the best of conditio!
as he has everything to win and noth
ing to lose.
Getting down to cold turkey, regard
ing the merits of the men, I must say
that Johnson is not only a 2 to 1 chance
but easily S to 1; he has everything in
his favor, having beaten Flynn previ
ously, being heavier, more science, with
longer reach, in fact, everything favors
the black man. There is only one draw
back in his case, and there is no cer
tainty about that. The drawback is

anything of that kind, and if he can win
a"good bet that he will do so
under any conditions.
If Flynn wins it will be the bis

Ryan's Pupil Fights Rings Around Chicago Lad, "Well
Known Here; Referee Calls It a Draw, but News
paper Decision Is For Morrow Good, Fast
Boxing For the 20 Round Limit.
(BY TIMOTHY TURBTER)
Twenty rounds of fast fighting, one
of them Jack Herrick's and five of them
draws, with the rest to Howard Morrow,
who was the aggressor throughout,
ended in what the referee called a
draw. Five newspaper men were unan
imous in declaring the fight Morrow's.
Staged Sunday afternoon in the
Juarez bull ring, in lieu of a bull fight,
the boxing battle was gory enough to
satisfy the toro fans. But little actual
harm was done to either battler, al
though Herrick's mouth was damaged
by the persistent blows of his opponent.
The fight thrilled a large crowd of fans,
and was good going throughout, devel
oping some clever, classy distance box
ing and infighting.
More than the men themselves, was
tested the two opposing schools of
Tommy Ryan, ex-middleweight cham
pion and trainer of Jim Jeffries and
Jim Flynn. and that of Harry Gilmore,
the Chicago boxing master. Ryan him-
! self was in Morrow's corner, and Harry
j Gilmore. Jr.. son of the "eteran trainer.
in simply this: Morrow's crouch de
fence and furious infighting was too
much for Herrick's distance style or
fighting, good boxing form but Im
Howard Morrow is a cross between a
bull terrlor and a snake, as regards
his boxing. He is a bear. With half
crouch and handy cover up, he Just
dug in and bested the Chicago lad in
nearly every go. He -was the aggressor
all through, and Herrick's favorite left
jabs couldn't stop him. They landed on
Howard's forehead, and did no more
damage than an enemic bouse fly. Even
Jack's favored left seems to fail and
Morrow's lefts told. Herrlck showed a
hesitation in his fighting which has
been noticeable before, but excusable
to an extent until Sunday's fight. His
blows seemed to wait, while Morrow's
came down surely and truly. On boxing
points Morrow had all the fight in num
ber of blows landed, defence and ag
gressior. And Lew Gasser, the referee
who had gained popular favor by call
ing the Herrick-Jack Mitchell affair
a draw, called it a draw again perhaps

and Harry Gilmore refuses to make
any remark about the decision. It is
certain that another referee will be
chosen, but just whom is not known.
The Fight by Rounds.
The going by rounds went as follows:
Round 1 They stall, sparring lightly,
clinch and spar for time. First clean
blow. Morrow right jab to jaw. No
harm. Morrow keen on infighting to
ward end of round, and Herrick gets
an eye; not bad. They clinch often.
Herrick plants left jab to face. Morrow
aggresses continually and round ends
with fast infighting; even honors.
Round may be called a draw.
Round 2 Herrick leads t face with
left and right jabs alternating, right
a good blow. Morrow to face left jab,
and strong right swing. Morrow plants
