Paul Steele, manager of the Taconia School of Boxing, did hi* bMt to put up a good card las: Bight, but 1 lie sho .v was some thing of a disappointment. Steele had taken on his shoulders more than one man can safely handle. Leo Bishop (Christian) of South Tacoma, laid down in the Mcond round of hla bout with Lao Colin of Centralla, claiming a foul. None of the ringside fins bad seen anything that even re- Mtnbled a foul. But to make ■latterh worse, Bishop endeavor- M to prove to the crowd that he baa really been hit low, and thus spoiled the whole show. Ho ahould have been arrested for his damonst ration.

The Tahorua club has been practicing every evening for weeks, and is reported to be in first class condition. The navy team is composed of several play ers who have been on Annapolis te*ms,&nd has been winning al most all its games.

HAND-SPRINGS IN FOOTBALL GAME The hand-springing halfback 6 the newest thing in footbaii • la Simmons of Texas univer sity, and his acrobatic stunt has totted gains the ordinary player could not make. When Simmon*, ourylng the ball, is about to oe tackled, he leape over the head of the tackier, turns a one-lmndul hud-aprlng, while hugging the ball to his che»t with the other hand, lands on his feet and con tinues down the field. Simmons has scored several touchdowns by leaping over the head of the only man between himself and the goal of his op ponents. The play, when *no ees»ful is one of the irotrt sensa tional and spectacular eights ever teen on a football field. The photo shows Simmons Mow that forced l'ete to quit. Harry Christian, who was beat en in Aberdeen the previous night, also laid down last night and refused to box Billy Wright. Steele is to be 1:0 m mended far not attempting to stage a sub stitute match. Steve Pollack of Wilkesoii and Qeorge Daridson of Seattle put up the aoaipplest l>out of tho evening. It wai a slashing, tre mendously fast match. Pollack had the weight and reach on Davidson, but the little Seattle fighter overcame the handicap by his quickness. His shamrock punches to the taw and face, dur ing clinches and breakaways, al most wore Pollack out. Davidson Improved In each round and was given the decision. 1 •*.

BONDS WILL WRITE - ARTICLES FOR TIM f S Joe Bonds, in His Fighting Pose. Joe Bonds, heavyweight champion ;>f the north west, and Tacoma's favorite boxer, returned homo this week after almost a year's experience .in 4he tight game away from home. Most of this "tfind he was in Australia, the country that legalizes .taxing, teaches it to its children, and gives more attention to the ring game than we in America do to baseball. Bonds has written a series of articles on his expeji ences and impressions, which will appear exclu sively in The Times. The series starts Saturday and we promise it to be one of the most interesting feat ures ever printed-gat this page.—Sporting Editor.- NEXT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION MAY COME FROM AUSTRALIA NEW YORK, Nov. 18.—The next heavyweight ring champion Is liable to come from Australia, the country that produced i>iie heavyweight chain pion — Hob Fitziimmons, and other good fighters. i The prospect is Les Darcy, the youngster who knocked all the Htiirs of Australia cold, then startled Fisttana by knocking out Eddie McGoorty and followed with a victory-over Jimmy Clabby. First Darcy was heard of rs a lightweight. In a short time he was a middleweight. He is grow ing so rapidly it is said his career in the middle division although short, is about at an end. Accord ing to reports he can no longer make the middleweight limit and retain all his steam. Darcy is only 19 and It 1b hard to tell where he will stop in the matter of weight. It is predicted that he will be a heavyweight j even before fans of the Tnlted States get a chance to see htm perform. THE XA.CQMA TIMES There is no heavyweight in eight right now who seems to have a chance to beat Jess Wlll ard. But Darcy, at the gait ha is going in the ring and the rate he is growing, looks like the fel low who, before much time has passed, will be a real match for the present champion. golftoSey 0... tomorrow The Tacoma Country and Oolf club will play a general handicao match tomorrow in conjunction with the Thome sup match. This isarranged because of the com paratively small field entered in the Thome competition. The Thome match is 18 holes medal play from scratch.

Romeo Hagen'a backer* did not even expert to «cc Mm put ii i> the batt'c that he (lid l.tsi night. They're .soine nli'H jubilant toil ly, as a re •ult. Paul Steel* doesn't know whether to be thankful that It's all over or kink because so many things went wrong. Our :ulvie«, Paul, Id to i>« thankful for everything that broke right for you, and blame the god of luck for everything else. Jim Corbett is as good a prophet as ever. Ha touted Tom Cowler as a coming champ and Tom has lost twice In two starts. it 1b hinted that there is quite an undercurrent of sentiment over inter-city ath letic events, in the coming •chool board election. Th« subject Is such a del'/sajte oiv, however, that none of tho candidates care much about announcing their beliefs. Dan OXeary says he can go a mile on foot while two men go two and a half mile* on skates. He cau if they are on a certain kind of skates. And say, fellows, don't forget the big football gam* tomorrow at the Stadium. Those Tahoraa Athletic boys have worked valiantly to keep Tacoma on the football map, and they deserve real support In this lan game of the season. Les Dexcy, the middle weight who is coming from Australia to show us what he has, will do 18 weeks in vaudeville shortly after he arrives. It's a poor fctart for a foreign boxer who Intends to make a killing in HiN country. n*re they usually try vaudeville after V they have lost hopes for anything else. £ c, Wr ~lh<r " Y*"r **« Today Rain.

HERE'S THE MAN TO TACKLE THE CHAMPION-HAS LONGEST REACH The man slated to l.c the first to meet Champion Jess WHlard probably will be Fred Fulton, a giant from Rochester, Minn. Wlllard lias signed for a fight in New Orleans in March. Mini Kill ton is being groomed a» his oppo nent. It will be Wlllards first fight since he knockod out .lack Johnson. Fulton is something of a new comer, but has advanced rapidly, mainly through uae of long arms and legs that make it possible for him to keep opponents away from him and « terrific wallop. Fulton has the longest reach of any man in the ring. When his arms are spread out he spans 84 1-2 Inches. Wtllard had the biggest roach until Fulton came in. He spans 83 1-4 Inches. The Rochenter man measures 6 feet, 4 Inches and weighs 220. Wlllard measures 6 feet, 6 In ches and weighs 243. Fulton is a whale of a man, but the tftkf thing he has on the champion fs reach. The beat Information regarding Fulton's punch corns* from tl<o report that he Moored Art Pel ,y 18 tlmea In a recent bcut. Prior to that he knocked out Jack Mo ran, Jack Lewis >ui'l Tim Lonsn. None of them la a lUr perform er. Fulton claims to have ui<«*t WHlard In an exhibition bout at Rochester last spring. The next bout In which the n»w bin heavy will figure will be with Andre Anderson at. Milwaukee, Nor. 17. His manager, Mike Col liiis. in taking him atong Hlnwir on better men.
