George Chip, his middleweight contend

pion of the Antipodes and claimant of
the w orld's championship Dime Is con
vinced that Chip would hate a splendid
chance against a mixer like JJarcy. anu
as the battle would no doubt draw btg
money, he is willing to take a chance
both ways. In case Jimmle goes to Aus
tralia he will probably take a light
weight alone with Chip and also Joe

ing middleweight
Another prominent fighter who Is li
able to visit Australia within the next
six months Is Jack Dillon. Of course.
Jack has been making big money
throughout the country this past sea
sun, but his manager, Sam Murbarger,
ii of the opinion that he should be a
still greater money maker if he could
land a championship from a man like
Darcy, and he has the bug buzzing to
the extent that he may go across the

FAVORITE FOR A GENERATION
Retl-bloodcd men with real tobacco
hunger find that they can satisfy it only
by chewing, and the most wholesome
and satisfying tobacco to chew is that
made in plug form.
The limit of luxury in tobacco chew
ing is the rich, sweet, juicy flavor that
trickles through your system when you
chew Spear Head.
No other chewing tobacco is so mel
low, so luscious and so satisfying. No
other equals Spear Head for putting a
keen edge on your appetite.
Spear Head is made of the world's
best tobacco leaf the choicest of red
Kentucky Burley. This leaf is selected
for its full, juicy richness with the
most painstaking care, is stemmed by
hand, is pressed into Spear Head plugs
so slowly that not a drop of the rich,
natural juice escapes.
Your first chew of Spear Head will
open your eyes to the genuine enjoy
ment there is in chewing.
Chew the rich and mellow tobacco
that has been the favorite for a third
if a century that's Spear Head. Try
