More evidence comes each day. As home runs clear the wall, That some one has been tampering And made a “rabbit” ball. KILBANE SIZES UP CARPENTIER Fastest Heavy weight I’ve Seen,’ Is His Verdict BY JOHNNY KILBANE. Featherweight Champion. MANHASSET, L. 1., June 10—I’ve just made a close-up of Georges Car pentier, the French challenger. I called at his barricaded training camp on one of. his visiting days, for I wanted to see him work when he wasn’t performing for public consump tion. I talked with him afterward for more than an hour on the flower - bordered front porch of the old farm house in which he is quar tered. Georges is the fastest heavy- KILBANE weight I have seen. nc h a s been using his light hand mainly in public sparring with Jeanette, Journee (who’s a double for Al Palzer) and his other partners, the challenger has- a won derful left that is lightning fast on jabs and hooKS. It _jvas with this left hand that he jabbed hi * way with ■lfe Beckett to an onening the Englishman’s chin in line for the right-handed knockcut blow in the first round. His right cross is a dandy and he has a “flying punch” that he seldom uncorks and which I never have seen used before. It may be that he’s molding it out for July 2nd. When an opening to the chin occurs Georges, who is always on his toes, veritably throws himself through the air at his opponent, with his right arm straight out before him. Every ounce of steam and strength is be hind his blow, and if it lands, it’s a 10 to 1 shot that a kayo will re sult. Burly Joe Beckett crumpled like paper when it collided with his chin. There’s been a lot of talk about Carpentier’s “waltz punch.” It’s nothing much more, as I see it, than a series of rapid-fire left jabs to the face, the Frenchman meanwhile danc ing in and out and circling his op ponent to make him turn. Carpentier is training differently than Dempsey. The champ is work ing for strength, endurance and hit ting ability; Georges is centering his efforts on increasing his already amazing . speed. Dempsey plans a give-and-take-fight; the challenger’s campaign calls for him to do most of the giving and very little receiv ing. For it’s generally admitted in the Carpentier camp that should the “man killer” get in one of bis fa •ious “socks,” there would be little ope for Georges. Descamps figures Carpentier has an excellent chance if he sticks to long-range fighting, for the challeng er packs a wicked wallop himself, and is capable of delivery it while traveling at high speed. The Frenchman’s plan will be to go into high in the first round and stay out of a mix with the champ at all cost. He’ll try to keep Dempsey’s bull-like rushes with his stinging jabs, watching always for an opening for his “flying punch.” Both the indoor and outdoor rings at Manhasset are twelve-footers. Georges is training in these for speed. He‘ll go into the big bout accustom ed to working a small area and the 20-foot ring at Jersey will give him acres of roomSto dance away from the champ. The smaller the ring, work ing with Bib Journee and Jeanette, Carpentier gets accustomed also to working on the ropes, and if Demnsev doe« crowd him into a corner on July 2nd, the challenger will be in better shape to fight his way out than if he had not been training for it.

Americus Boy Plays Football At Oxford ATHENS, June 10—Frank Harrold Jr., of Americus, who is a University of Georgia Rhodes scholar at Ox ford University, in England, has “won his colors” on the Rugby foot ball team of Hertford college, Ox ford, and has played on the tennis ■ team in every match this year. Ke is on his way back to the United States I for the summer vacation and will, be at the University of Georgia for commencement June 15. “If a fellow in Georgia could just come over here and take a look I around Oxford for one week before | he went to college, would work hini-i self to death to get a Rhodes schol arship,” Harrold writes to his friends here. “It is ideal and the whole life to me is more of a dream than a reality. You can go all over the world hunting for prettier spot than Oxford during the summer time and not find it.” . Harrold is one of the five Uni versity of Georgia men who have been sent to Oxford as Rhodes schol ars from Georgia, another Rhodes •~eholar is to be elected this fall. I Dr. R. P. Brooks, dean of the chool of Commerce, is the state sec retary for the appointment of Rhodes scholars, and Dr. R. P. Stephens is secretary for the University of Geor gia. The scholarships offer Ameri can boys an opportunity to study at the most famous English universities and to learn of conditions in Eng land and on the continent. Each Rhodes scholar gets an income of SI .- 750 ner year from the Rhodes schol arship bequest. CITY TAX NOTICE. City Tax Books close July Ist.
