ENGLAND WANTS COCHRAN FAVORS HOME SHORES By NEW YORK, Jan. . I Save Just received a letter from the sport ing editor of one of England's greatest newspapers, containing' In formation which loads me to believe England will be the scene of the uempsey-uarpenoar rigat. Until this latter came I thought Canada would get the battle If the New York plana went awry. The letter Quotes ChariM Cochran, Kngtish member of the World's Boxing Trust, as saying: "According to the cob tract, the fight must take place either in the United biaus. nuxmo, Cnba. or South Amer ica. "Bat America Is an uncertain place. There Is a new president of the United States, and fresh laws mar be nassed at anv time. "That is why I think the fight may come off in England, and I have everything fixed op- for that emer ganey. Arena For 190,000. "A huge arena, homing- just about 100.009 people, an under cover, will be put up on a certain site near Lon don. Plans, materials, builders are all ready." That looks like business, doeant It? According to the letter. Cochran in sists that the fight will take place either on May So or July 4. Cochran thinks Carpeatler has a good chance to whip Dempsey. He said to my correspondent: "Dempsey and Ksarns, unlike HAYDEN'S CONQUEROR MATCHED WILL MEET FAST fiO MUCH has bees said and dene, relative to the fighting Qualities of one Speed ban Harden, for merly of the 24th Infantry that El ! mso mirt xaas long ago determined that they wanted to see him In ac tion against some good man at the Punch BowL Harden met his Waterloo reeentlv at the hands of Gorilla. Jones, of New Orleans, and now matchmaker Jimmy En in has gone the desires of the fans one better and has arranged for Jones to appear on the Punch Bowl card ef January 14 with Sunny Jim, a Fort Worth prodnst, who, by the way, holds a decision over Jones. Harden fought once in El Paso, this bout resulting In a cleanest victory over Eddie Johnson, snd the fans navs put their thinking caps on and are doping out the ability of a man who can defeat the clever negro army champion la nine rounds by the knockout route, and they are positive that he must be "some" mixer. Sunny Jim rates a trifle higher than Jones in that he holds a six round victory over the Louisiana scrapper. Jim Is Fast nnd Clever.

Sports Thru I I 1 as I .1 1 By BOBERT POLO is one of the greatest sports in the world. The war being a thing of the past. America Is go-, ing to England after thepolo cup, and early In December the Invasion began. Forty pontes were seat to England, with their trainers and handlers, to become acdimated and accustomed to English conditions tor the International Polo tournament next summer. For the last rear U. S. Polo associa tion officials have been making plans to recover the cup lost In 1914 at Westbnry. As ponies constitute about 8 percent of a team's strength, agents have been busy la the south west and in South America corralling the best polo ponies to be found, in South America they have encountered English agents picking up ponies for tne tsritisn n naera, ana coznpcu- tion has been Keen. Americans have found the beet polo nonles develooed bv breedlns; nonie; from our cattle ranches in the great soutnwesi wren tnorouguuieu racing stock. The Polo association had 73,0OO from the recede t at the last In ternationa match la 1014 to spend in preparnHon for the eomlntr event. Thst amount and more win be spent on ponies and team ex penses. In the past the Ameri can end of these International saatehes has been largely finan ced by Harry Payne Whitney, hlsuelf America's greatest polo player. Bach match has cost Whitney a fortune A sad thing connected With the coming event will be the absence or : toajiy di upaigi i"ut pop i players.

FOOTBALL CROWDING BASEBALL RECORD NUMBER OF GAMES Breaking up of the Western Con ference will mean a record number of lntersectlonal football games next season, Chicago is already on Prince ton's schedule, the first contest to be fought out at Princeton and the fol lowing year's game at Chicago. This ts the Tigers first western game since 1S9S. Indiana wants to niay Harvard. Michigan la after Syracuse, Yale has many western challenges, and in fact- every big eastern college has been Invited to take on oppo nents from the wheat belt. With the growth of national interest in the east-west sine at Pasadena each w Year's day, football seems likely to displace baseball as the recognised "national sport, Football crowds la isao broke all records. It seemed that the pub He, disgusted with the revelations of crookedness in professional baseball, turned to amateur col lego sport to see the real thing. Indications are that 1921 is going to be another record breaking year. JESS GETTING HARD AGAIN AND WANTS TO COME BACK Fred Toates. railroad man. who manages to time his runs so that he never misses a good fight, tells me an interesting story about Jess Wll lard. Toates's old home was in Kansas. On a visit last summer he went to the state fair at Topeka. There he saw Jess, who had just bought the prize bull of the fair for $30,00 cash. "I'd expected to see Wiliard fat and soft, the way he was when I saw him in Iios Angeles a couple of months before he fougbt Dempsey at Toledo," said Toates. "But he was a picture. He was drassed like a farmer. In over alls and with bis shirt sleeves rolled up above his elbows. His arms and face were sunburned nearly black. He looked like the blKtreat and i strongest man In the world, and hard I as nails. I never saw such big arms on a man before, and I couldn't take my eyes olf mm. He was palling the bull around with his right arm. like a pup on a string, and he carried one of his youngest boys on his left. Smiling and laughing all the time, too. You can take it from me. Jess won't be any soft mark when he meets ivmpsey in March. Anything he may do won't surprise me." "Ma:-be "on n.ad a $ tar or so ago AND YET DAN GETS AWAY WITH IT.

If I had any worrying to do about Jess, it was before the fight at Toledo." All of this, except the last line. Is rather unnsual philosophy for a ring ebampion.
