The total number of tournaments held under Interstate supervision lost year waH lit. This, of course, does not In clude club tournaments, of which there are hundreds. Present Indications are that there will be at least 1000 trap shooting competitions of various sizes and descriptions within the boundary of the United States this year. Increase in 25 States. In the list of 412 shoots Increases are shown in 25 states over tbe number of tournaments held last year and in nine others decreases are noted. Inside of another month it Is expected that these nine will equal the mark of last year. or better it. For a good many jears PennsvHania has led In the number of registered shoots, but this season little Iowa seems to have the bulge, on the sons of William Ponn. Iowa has 4S reg istered tournaments as against, 46 for Pennsylvania. This makes Iowa look like the best trapshootlng state In the country. There are 220 gun clubs In Iowa. Pennsylvania has 4D2. Iowa has 67 clubs affiliated with the state asso ciation, while Pennsylvania has 121 The Ke stone shooters will have to keep stepping to remain in front of Illinois, as the Illinois shooters have announced 43 registered shoots and only have 42 ilubs affiliated with the state associ ation.

The First NatiomlBank EL PASO, TEXAS when Willard met JFrank Moran, the Pittsburg heavyweight In a 10 round no-deeislon contest at Madison Square Garden last Saturday evening before a crowd numbering 12,000 which packed the building from floor to rafters. The contest Itself nas a remarkably good one between big men; usually contests between heavyweights, especially of a limited number of rounds, are not so pleasing to the fans as between lightweights- or featherweights, but In this instance the two gladiators cf the heavyweight division put up a battle mat was interesting from the time the gors? sounded for the first round until the finish came in the tenth round. Despite the fact that there was a difference of practically 60 pounds In weight between the mefn, still tbev sized up better than might be expected, under such conditions. Willard. who Is a giant In stature, at times towered above his opponent, but this wa dn, 1 1 to the fact that Moran had a habit of using mo crouch while willard usually stood erect with hia left hand fnrtnnl There Is no doubt In my mind that Big Jess would have scored a com- I plete knockout before the end of the ' tenth round had It not been for the , fact that ho broke his right hand in ' the third round. Had the big fellow taken a chance with his left hand In delivering more solid blows, he would no doubt have stopped Moran Just the same, out ine cnampion seemed to pre fer to play sate, the same as he did when he won the title from Jack John son at Havana, nearly a year ago. It Is lilstorv now, but It remains a fact that had Willard desired he could have finished JohnsoiTalmost any time after the eighth round, for it was in this session that he delivered a perfect right hand blow to the negro's Io)dy , that really took the steam out of him Willard may not have known it, but t from statements made by Johnson him self afterwards, he was nearly all in at that time, but recovered and went through till the 26th round. However, Willard was playing safe and took no chances whatever He did the soma , with Frank Moran. I Henllntrd to Cut Loose. I Thore were times when the cham- ' plon had the challenger staggering ' about the ring and if he had simply . cut loose and taken a little chance him self, he could have finished the con- I test then and there without a. doubt Probably It is Just os well that the champion played safe, but with the size and physical condition Willard pos sesses It seems that he should have opened up a bit and taken more or the aggressive than what he did. There were many people who were of the opinion that Willard possessed nothing but his brute strength and stamina. They were fooled, however, for th big fellow displayed a whole lot of science and his blocking was almost perfect. Dozens of times Moran would swing wildly with a right and left, but In only two rounds was he able to nut over anv of these swings to the vital spot. Willard had a habit of throwing up his right arm In such a way as to block the swings perfectly, but as stated before, Moran became desperate In the fourth roflnd toward the end and again in the eeventh and succeeded In putting over several right hand rwings to WHIard's Jaw. They had ab solutely no effect on the big fellow, but seemed to -make him more anirrv. and the result was that he came back all the harder and punished Moran more severely. I.oiik Left Bothered Moran. While Moran was more the aggressor and was given credit for carrying the fight to the champion, still It must be admitted that Jess kept meeting hlin with his long straight left to the face and they certainly bothered the chal lenger a lot. It was Moran's only chance to work oil the aggressive, but he found that WHIard's countering was always dangerous and It was only oc casionally that he took the chance of swinging with both hands. Willard also used an occasional right to the body and each time he landed he seemed to shake up the Pittsburger badly His right uppercuts were not nearly so perfect as those ho used in his right with Johnson, although he used them oftener It seems that af ter the third round Jess was using his right and bluffing with it a great deal. but not putting the real strength ba V of tliem as lit iould ut tike the . ous odds. The Pittsburger must have knftTrn that Will,., a- ...... him In every round nnd that his only chance lay in putting over a decisive wallop. But this chance did not come to him. for his swings were well blocked and those few ho did land seemed to have no effect on the west ern giant. Nine Rounds for Willard. According to my count, there was only one round that could be called even, the other nine belonging to Wil lard. The big fellow completely out boxed Moran. being able to Jab htm with his left at almost any time. In this manner ho was able to roll up the points, which assured him of certain victory by the popular route After the battle Willard stated that he would have stopped Moran but for his broken hand Of course this sounds verv well now, but as stated above, I think that Jess could have won by a knockout had he taken a little more chance. Moran seemed to be of the opinion that he Necessity A Great Teacher Adversity "kicks" home to hun dreds of Young Men the fact that Cood Timet will end Somdimc.
