GAME LICENSE MAY BE WORN ' ON J5LEEVE Pennsylvania "Hunters Must Have Tag Displayed Con spicuously; Other Follow. BY R. P. HOLUM). If motorists carried their automo bile licenses in a pocketbook in tlielr hip pocket, it wont be a rather diffi cult Job to enforce the traffic regu lations. The reason that law hare been passed requiring that aatomo biles carry license platea whore they can be readily seen is so that offi cers can at a glance learn the identity of any motorist violating the law. Why should not the same reasoning- be applied to the game lawa? The usefulness of the game warden Is often greatly impaired as soon as his Identity becomes known. One of the warden's principal duties is to see that every one has a hunting license. Immediately he asks the shooter to produce his license tbe countryside knows that a game war den Is in the vicinity. Could this warden mingle with the shooters without asking; any questions and nnte his license number as a traffic officer checks up automobiles, the problem would be much simpler. We do not advocate the wearing of a metal license plate, but several states have solved the problem by one means or another. New York provides that every man afield with a gun must wear a button showing his license number. Pennsylvania, pro vides that it is a misdemeanor to be afield with a gun without the num ber of your license being- worn on your arm. Tbe Pennsylvania board of game commissioners furnishes with each license a tag bearing the license number In figures at least one inch In height, which tag said licensee Is required to display vd the back of the sleeve between the elbow and the shoulder la such manner that the figures be visible at all times while hunting. These cloth bands can be sewed or pinned around the sleeve of your hunting coat. WILL KEEP BASKETBALL CLEAN IS GAME FOR REAL SPORTSMEN CAMBRIDGE. Ifaas, Dee. J. Ed Wachter, coach of the Harvard basketball team and perhaps the greatest player of the game, doctors; the sooner the sport is deprived of indoor football and wrestling meth ods the larger Its following will be. He has played in mere than -1790 games and Is still In harness. Wach ter. In an interview, declares: "If the game is going to regain its former prestige it will be necessary for the officials to hold the parti cipants more strictly to the rales. All the tactics of Indoor footban, sach as tackling, pushing, shoving, tripping and bumping, must be eliminated. Last year, I remember. Windsor played six games during a short torn of Maine, and only two fouls were called, when, as a matter of fact, 'there should have been at least 200. We won all six of these games, but It wasn't real basketball. Cat Oat Reach Staff. "Basketball is a gentleman's game when played properly, and the sooner the rough tactics are eliminated for good, the sooner the sport will thrive again. It engenders a bad spirit among red-blooded men. because no participant with a heart wtll stand for being handled roughly without retaliating. The rough ones do a deal of harm to the sport in the long rur- but thev seem to believe that it 8 good business to attract box office re ceipts bv this method. "Basketball Is a game far real saartsatea.

It is aajost to allow sue a gaod section of the canntry to Trapshooting Is Even More Popular Brig. Gen. Fred H- Phillips, Jr, sec retary of the National Rifle associa tion, in announcing the program of the 1921 national Indoor rifle cham pionship matches, states that the course ef fire In several of the matches has been'' changed with a view of maintaining the competitive spirit and of simplifying tbe work of keep ing the records of the thousands of shooters. There were nearly 1000 teams of 10 men 10.000 shooters In the national matches last winter and it is the gen eral impression that enough people got the "bug" during tbe past sum mer to add several hundred additional teams and several thousand new shooters to the list this winter. Not only are there more rifle shooters each winter, but tbe calibre of the shooters are Improving at the same time. He is a bril liant field general and a wonderful broken -field mnnar. He ex-els as a forward passer and as a pnnV-r. Can votj beat those combined Qualities? Horween mast got the fullback po sition because he Is a diw-kicker. He has this advantage over Keller of Yale am Oilro of Princeton. Other wise the choice would bo between those two players.

I was forced to send for ear manager to identify me and get into the haU. "It was when I first played with Ware that I remember seeing a great club, representing tbe Thirty-third Street T. M. G.

They won the national championship in 190, but they're all done now except Shields, who referees occasionally down around New Jersey." Johnson Awaits Other Disclosures Ban Johnson has Mated from time to ttme that other Interesting dis closures In connection with the base ball scandal might be made. Possibly he means that he expects to secure evidence of a plot to hush up the eases of the White Sox players. Ifs quite plain that he has a big battle on his hands there, for there have been Indications that very powerful influences are at work to nullify the work of the grand Jury. It must be borne In mind. too. that this grand jury also returned Indict ments against operators of baseball pools in Chicago and the strong po litical influences that have been as sociated with these pool operators doubtless are allied with the other forces in the attempts to cover up and bury all the baseball gambling disclosures.

Now that the-' fans have had a breathing spell and Who's thh? has met who's this. the Dempsey-Brennan match has sim mered down to this: Dempsey was not himself. Jack Kearns. after the fight, smil ingly remarked that Dempsey's poor showing would make the edda on coming fights better. Jack said some thing. Today any number of fight followers give you the laugh as you mention the champion's name, and say: "Wait nil Willard or Carpen tler get that guy! That may all be so. men. but WAIT! The next time you see Jack Demp sey he will probably be himself. He will be the slugging, fearless, piti less cave man of tbe ring that he was at San Francftco, at New Orleans, at Toledo and at Benton Harbor. Tom Jones, former manager of Jess Willard. was still wonCering about the Dempsey angle today. "I never saw Demesey la saeh a poor fight before." piped Toss, kiting off the ead ef a Pittsburgh Corona. "As ssaesi as I hate that We WlUaid I feel sare that he'd have atenaed Dempsey la five reruads last ntgbt. Jack didn't seem to have aaythlmc bat a de sire te f fa lit. Me had that, bat eonWaf first." Tern O'Boarke, the veaeran manager bad tbe best dep. ef the whole let. When he saM that Dempsey was tryiajr ta imitate Marty FarretPs style, he hit tke nail on the head. When you stop to think of It, Demp sey did put en Farrell's style quite a lot. Instead of blocking, as he had done before, Jack seemed to favor the shifting head style. As Brennaa led. Jack would shift his head from side to side and often twist his body, walking away from tbe attack Just as Farrell had done. He never did that before in any fight. Cfcamplea Trained ta Death. "What we lack we admire," wrote Victor Hugo. Dempsey certainly proved that last night. At a hitter he has ao Hviag peer, bat as a baxer he has many.

Syracuse, N. T, Dee. 21. Syracuse and Dartmouth will meet here In an indoor track meet this winter, either the latter part at February or the first part ef March. It was announced last night by the Orange athletic au thorities. Six members of the last American Olympic team at Antwerp wttt be seen in the Syracuse-Dartmouth meet and amass; them wm be two Olympic champions. Alan Woodrlsg; ot Syra cuse, winner of the ?ee meter race, and Karl Thompson, of Dartmoath, world's champion hurdler. The other Olympic men are Watson. Simmons, Ellis and Proot. all of Syracuse.

Tern U'Kearse tninks Jack tried to ape Marty. Dempsey did. Not only that, hat Jack's condition was not what you'd call wonderful. He was paler than a corn muffin. He seemed to lack pep and ginger. Be wa strained to death. Like Jim Cor bet t. be wasn't satisfied with what he had, ha wanted something else. Corbett once made Jeffries look like a sucker for twenty-three round but fell from a left to the jaw. He fig ured that If he could make himself a strong man he'd knock Jeff still. He was matched with Jeff for the second time and trained with heavy iron weights, heavy aandlbags and the like. He built himself a sweU set of muscles. When they met in the ring, the crafty. Jabbbag. taatalislas Corbett of yore was gone. Instead, we saw a leaden-legged Oorbett unable to get out or bis own way. Jeffries stopped hta In ten rounds. The Rabbit Punch.

The Mow was named thus because of that fact. The' punch is legitimate, but feared by fighters. Tears ago Jack. Kearns took MHbnrn Saylor to Australia aad Saylor won five or six Yihts la a row with knockouts by using that punch. Boxing authorities In Australia-passed a law deelarlae it a foul blow. Saylor was an adept In the use of the clob-JIke blow. No one could even Imitate him. With that punch taken away front him he wasn't quite so successful, Jess Willard Is another man who uses the rabbit punch. At close quar ters be can raaeh around and sock an opponent on the back of the neck without trouble. There was some discussion about the punch before the Derapeey-Wil-lard quarrel at Toledo. Soma thought It unfair, while others Insisted that It was quite legitimate. Willard finally announced that he would not use it In tbe fight with Dempsey and things cooled off. He didn't have a chance tp use it, anyway. OVER MINE si oners get 95 a fight through oat the slate.
