TWO WATCH-FOBS
GO TO ELIZABETH
TOWN HEADP1NNERS
BV BERT DODGE.
PHI DELTA bowlers, who totaled
435, and the Elizabeth Centrals,
who accounted for a mark of 421
furnished the most creditable pinning
In the STAR headpln tournament on
the Iroquois alleys bust n'lght. There
were fifty performers on the firing line.
Two members of the El.zabeth Cen
trals—William McKelvey, who rolled
106, and Frank Grlffe. with a score of
100. were the only bowlers to win one
of the watch-fobs offered by the STAR
to those who tally at the century mark
or better.
In getting hi.s mark of 106 McKelvey
had twelve perfect hits. Grlffe. on the
other hand, missed In the sixth frame,
and It was only by winding up with
two strikes .hat he was able to just
reach the century mark. He got a big
round of applause for turning one of
the most clever tricks that has been
accounted for so far In the tournament.
The Pill Delta five was the first to go
on with the Central A. C. quintet.
Young was high on the Phi Delta team,
with a mark of 08, having missed n
the sixth frame. F. R sden, with two
Blips, did well to get 93. None of the
Centrals were able to get anywhere |
near the century mark.
In the second squad the Orange
juniors and the Elizabeth juniors had
their innings, llodge was high with 91,
it miss In the ninth frame being his only
mistake.
The Elizabeth Centrals did their good
work In the third squad and had the
Wanderers “A" team as coworkcVs.
t»n the latter team Ferguson rolled 95.
He began with a miss and then had
three strikes in a row. The slip in the
initial box would have been overcome
had It not been for another miss In
the eighth frame.
The Autom bowlers went on next
■with a team from Seth Boyden Council,
Tloyal Arcanum, of Belleville. Bob
M nlon made things merry fur the
suburbanites, rolling twelve frames '
without a miss for a clean score of 0.
Peterson was the high performer, hav- j
lng a tally of 84.
Bowlers from the Engelberger En
graving Company rolled next with the
All-Downs. F. Engelberger went along
in clever style for ten frames without
a. miss and had a score of 82. Then,
■with a watch-fob apparently all but
assured a miss came, and. In spite of
i> strike for a windup, tils total was 92.

Redmond, of Milwaukee, In the last
round of their fifteen-round bout at

York wipi a great reputation. last
week he knocked out Freddie Corbett,
the Bensattonal Quaker City fighter, In
a few rounds. He has met and de
feated many of the best boys in the
country, nnd is qualified to give Burns

will make his first appearance In
America. Tom O’Rourke has selected
a worthy opponent for him.

ner will meet Frank Klaus.
Andy Morris, of Boston, knocked out
Jack Fitzgerald, of Philadelphia, In the
first round at the Queen City A. C„ of
Manchester, N. H„ last night, but
Referee Allen, after giving Fitzgerald
the “count out,” thought that he had
done a clever bit of acting, so after
three minutes’ rest he ordered him to
fight or he would declare the bout no
co tiles t. After resuming, Fitzgerald
fought well, but Morris steadily beat
him with terrific blows. Fltz Insisted
on a draw, both men being on their feet
at the finish of the fifteenth round.
That was the verdict.

LOCAL MILITARY
ORGAN ZATiONS AT
INDOOR BASEBALL
MILITARY organizations are ever
on the alert to provide some- 1
thing to stimulate and keep alive
the athletic spirit among Its members.
Just now indoor baseball is flourishing
in this section among the citizen sol
diers and gives promise of increasing in
popularity. In the East the game Is
not Indulged in to any extent among
those not connected with military or
ganizations, except in gymnasia of
Young Men's Christian Associations, as
a diversion, but the soldiers find it a
great game and are giving it the posi
tion it deserves among indoor games.
Essex Troop, of this city, has a good
team, and In many contests with other
organizations fast games have resulted.
The troopers expect to go better next
season.
Company K, of Montclair, one of the
cream commands in the Fifth Regi
ment of Infantry, has a team that
sprung a surprise on the local troopers.
Field Battery A, of East Orange, is
now In the field with what appears to
be a good nine, and they will be seen in
action shortly against Company K and
probably the troop.
Chief Mechanic Joseph Patchen and
Corporal Reginald Bennett are captain
and manager, respectively, and the
artillerymen are showing big Interest in
in the preliminary details worked out.
The first game of the East Orange
boys takes place on February 28, when
they clash with the team representing
the Third Battery, of Brooklyn. The
game will be played In the latter city.
Soldiers attached to the cavalry and
artillery arms of the service have quite
an advantage in playing the Indoor
game. Their armories are of large di
mension because of the room needed for
military evolutions.
The armories have a turf surface and
this allows for plenty of sliding reach
ing bases and allows for a lively game.
Regulation equipment can be used.
The large size bail, which fcannot be
less than 11% inches in circumference
and not less than 8 or 8% ounces in
weight, permits spectators to see the
sphere at all times when in action.
One rule of the game strictly adhered
to is that the ball Is to be thrown with
an underhand movement, and an effort
to steal a base cannot be made until
the bail has reached or passed the
catcher.
THE WONDER IS WHETHER
AUTO RECORD WILL STAND.
NEW YORK, Feb. 23—There is much
speculation In Automobile Row here as
to whether any driver at Jacksonville
next month will be able to break the
record of 27.33 seconds for a mile, set
by Barney Oldfield. If a driver can
do this he will thereby carry oft a
prize of $1,000. An enterprising news
paper statistician here has figured that
the winner will be rewarded at ap
proximately the rate of $135,000 an hour.

YOUNG M’LEAN PROVES
HIMSELF FAST BOY.
The most sensational skater of ths
evening at the International Indoor lco
skating championship meet being held
at the St. Nicholas Rink last night was
Robert McLean, the 17-year-old expert
who represents the Illinois A. C„ of
Chicago. McLean finished first In his
trial heats In each of the quarter-mile
and three-quarter mile championships
and the one-mile handicap. Despite
the fact that he had to give a full lap
In the one-mile handicap to some or the
1 eld, he had such an easy time of It
that he was able to win as he pleased
after falling at the beginning of the
last circle.
Fred Robson, of Toronto, appears
the only one capable of giving McLean,
a brush.
Phil Kearney and W. BuckMolder, of
St. Nicholas Rink, will carry New York
colors against McLean, Robson and R.A
in the quarter-mile champ'onshtp final,
tonight. The same pair will also con
test the three-quarter mile champion
ship with the invaders.
