r ST. BENEDICT ‘PREP’ FIVE
' CONQUERS CENTRAL HIGH
BOYS FOR THE TITLE
\ V- »
t ' ^
Victors “Find” Themselves in Second Half
and Make 9-9 Tally at End of First
Period Result in 33 to 24 Conquest.
In one of the greatest schoolboy
basketball contests of the present
season—a hauls which was frcqubnt
ly even anti always close, the St.
Benedict's "Prep" School team yes
terday afternoon won the title of
"city champions" by defeating the
{ Central High School five by a score
of S3 to 24.
The Central High School gymna
sium was rather small to contain the
followers of the contending teams,
and there were many who failed to
M get within decent distance of wit
. nesting the fray, on which so much
depended for both teams.
The battle itself was a thriller, one
that had the rooters of both sides on
edge all the way, and as the cheers
for first one ar. > then the other
died away, some clever passing—yes
remarkable at times, or some bril
liant and sensational shot would
awaken the echoes. It tyas thus to
nearly the end when the Crimson and
P Gray forged slowly to the front, and
with only a few minutes to play the
Central players, despite their des
perate efforts to rally, were finally
subdued.
Once in the lead and with but few
minutes to play, Coach Frank Hill's
boys showed the stuff they were made
of, and not alone smothered any
rally on the part of their opponents,
but crawled ahead, the referee s whis
tle being a welcome call to them.
* After several delays, owing to the
attitude of the officials In charge of
the game, the big crowd was treated
to a contest that brought out the
keen rivn'ry of the teams engaged
in the struggle.
Xo individual in the contest fought
harder than George Stanford, one of
» Central High's most notable athletes.
Stanford’* Playing Good.
The short, stocky forward of the
vamiuished produced more points for
his team than any other member.
He landed two brilliant fleld goals
and ten free throws. But he-alone
was unable to staud the attacks of
the ‘‘Saints' ” stalwarts, who were
tugging at the hall every inch of the
way. Louis Lefkowitz, too, did won
derful work for the Central team.
♦ His five field goals made up the rest
of his team's points. Frank McDer
mit, Benedict's hope, headed his team
in point making. “Mac,” who is with
out a doubt one of the greatest
schoolboy players In the country,
scored* five goals from the field, every
one of them sensational, and tossed
in six foul goals.
Captain Eddie Gilhooley, wfho never
in his basketball career worked
harder was next in line with three
goals from the field and a trio of free
tosses.
There was no opportunity for either
team to resort to roughness, as each'
efflcial was ever, eager to outdo the
other in detecting the foul tactics of
the players. \
' -- Even at Half Time.
The teams appeared evenly
matched at the conclusion of the first
period, for each had scored nine
point's. Both Bcored two field goals
and five free throws. McDermit dtd
the deld goaling for St. Benedict,
while i.efkowltz and Stanford divided
for the homesters. Stanford scored
Central’s five free throws, white Mc
Dermit had three for the “Saints”
and Eddie Gilhooley the remaining
two.
Exactly twenty-nine fouls were
called, eighteen of which were credit
ed against the winners. Stanford had
sixteen trips from the fifteen foot
mark and was successful ten times.
Defkowitz missed his two tries. Mc
Dermit missed once in seven chances,
while Gilhooley broke even in four
attemtps. But one change in the
line-up was made during the contest,
Frank Fagan replacing Max Singer
at^guard for Central, during the mid
dle of the final half.

OXFORD CREW TO BE THE HEAVIEST
IN HISTORY AGAINST CAMBRIDGE
NEW YORK, March 11.—Crew sta
4 tifitics and other detailed information
preliminary to the seventieth re
newal of. the Cambridge and Oxford
boat race on the Thames river near
London, which is fixed for Thursday
next, have reached here by mall. The
race will be over the usual four-mile
course, from Putney to Mortlake.
Both crews have finished their pre
liminary practise and are now quar
tered at the scene of the race.
Oxford, by its record-breaking
performance two years ago and easy
victory again last year, is a strong
favorite for the present contest, but
a closer race than either of the previ
ous two is expected, this year for
_-M-- 1 ~
Cambridge 1ms created a distinctly
good Impression in trial spins. In
1911 Oxford established the record for
the course of 18:29, and In 1912 won
by four lengths after both boats had
been waterlogged.
Oxford has lost this year Stroke
Bourne, the hero of four consecutive
victories, but they had a number of
other experienced oarsmen to draw
from for this year's crew.
The comparative average weights
of the Oxford and Cambridge men are
178 and 174 pounds, respectively. It
is believed that the Oxford crew will
be The heaviest on record. Both crews
are using this year much shorter oars
than usual. They measure only 11
feet 10 Inches over all.

‘BOMBARDIER’ WELLS
IS STUDYING MR.
SMITH
NEW YORK. March 11.—bombar
dier Wells, the English heavyweight,
is studyingl the ring record of "Gun
boat" Smith, of California. Wells and
Smith are matched to box ten rounds
in Madison Square Garden Friday
night, and as the holder of the Lord
Lonsdale belt never has seen the Cali
fornian in action, he is asking many
questions about him.
Last year Smith met "Porky”
Flynn, of Boston, in a ten-round bout
at a local club. It was a close finish,
inasmuch as some of the critics de
cided in Flynn's favor; others declared
that Smith had won, and still another
verdict wa a draw. The record' of
this affair proved of great interest to
Wells, for in England two years ago
he got a decision over Flynn in a
twenty-round battle.

BULK ZIMMERMAN BATTED
OVER .500 IN PORTO RICO
_____ I
Billy Zimmerman, the Tigers’ won
derful left fielder, h;uf a good trip to
Porto Rico. BUI left this town, on
February 1G, and during his stay in
the islands he had a glorious time.
"First of all," he Raid, "1 have this
to show you,” anil he pulled from his
pockets a roll of bills. "Our team
had a very successful trip. We
played l-to-0 games, but we had
scores of 30 to 5, too.
“Just to show you'that I ni in form,
just ’look over my batting average."
It reads thus:
A. B. H. 3-R. 3B.
69 35 13 3
There were no home runs listed, and
when asked why. Bill continued that
"You couldn't make a homer if you
batted all year. The outfield on all
the fields is of sand, and the hall is
thus stopped from rolling. Otherwise
the grounds are In pretty good shape.
Of all the teams we met I thought the
High School team in Ponce was the
best. They could without a doubt
beat any high school nine in the coun
try,” said Zimmy, "and it would take
a great college nine to beat them.
Every player is a wonderful thrower,
and they resemble that Chinese team
which appeared here in fielding. We
only bent them 1 to 0, and it was in
the ninth inning that we scored our
run."
Bill concluded that the trip was a
benefit to him in every way.
It Is rumored down in the Tigers'
training camp that Al Shack ought
to make the team as a regular with
out the least doubt. In a letter lo a
friend one of the Tiger officials writes
that he is another Johnny Enzmann.
Dick Breen, the Jersey City club's
second baseman. Who sustained a
fracture of the right leg recently in
Porto Rico, did not arrive home with
the All Stars team on the steamer
Coamo of the New Vofk-Porto RICO
line yesterday morning. Dick is still
In the island, with his leg set in
plaster Paris. He will prBbably be all
right within a month, Billy thinks.
A _
Gus Getz was Ihe first of the Tiger
second squad to arrive In this city
from his home town just outside of
Pittsburg. Giis is a ta!) slim fellow'.
Hi Myers dropped in a few minutes
later. Myers looks very' much like
Bob Higgins, the Bengal backstop.
President George I,. Solomon and the
two new arrivals were discussing
Billy Zimmerman whpn the Ironbound
pride stuck his head Into the office
door. It surely was a surprise for
Mr. Solomon, who did not expect
Billy even today: hut Bill kept his
word.
BALTIMORE, March 11.—The Balti
more International League baseball
club left yesterday for Fayetteville,
N. C., where It will practise until
April 1.
SYRACUSE, N. Y., March 11.—Man

League club.
CINCINNATI, March 11.—Player
Thomas P. Sheehan, of the Brooklyn
club, of the National League, who was
promulgated as an Ineligible player
son\p time ago because he refused to
report to his club, was yesterday re
instated by the National Baseball
Commission without the Imposition of
a fine. Sheehan’s application was ac
companied by a statement that he in
tended retiring from baseball, and
that the Brooklyn club had agreed to
give him his unconditional release.
ANOTHER DAY OF EXCITEMENT IS'
EXPECTED ON TOLEDO DRIVES
TOLEDO, n„ March 11.—When the
first set of two-man teams from
Louisville, Ky„ went on the alleys in
the A. B. C. tournament this morning
bowling fans looked forward again for
a day replete with excitement. In
the five-man teams, which rolled last
night, there were many good scores
made, by individual howlers. This was
especially true of the men partici
pating in the second squad. Among
these were the Elor de Knispels, of
St. Paul, Minn. Bowling followers ex
pect these men to total up a large
number of pins and gain a place In
the all-events class.
After llm flrst^pquads of T.outsville
doubles this morning, they were fol
lowed by a mixed squad from I-ouis
ville, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. The
perfect score of 30<l rolled in an Indi
vidual game last night by William J.
Knox, of Philadelphia, Pa., appeared
to have acted as a stimulus to many
of the bowlers. For I his reason big
scores gre expected to rise when the
individual events are concluded early
this evening.

NEW YORK, March It.—Packey
McFarland declared last night that
he would pot meet Willie Richie for
the lightweight title held by Richie, if
he had to make 133 pounds six hours
before the flghl.
"As 1 have said repeatedly," Mc
Farland declared, "135 pounds at 3
o'clock in the afternoon is easy for
me and it is a legitimate lightweight
limit in view of ring precedent. Joe
Clans won the lightweight title from
Frank Erne at 136 pounds, scaling at
6 o’clock, yet nobody called Gans a
welterweight. If Richie is a real
lightweight champion, he should not
split hairs with me over a weight he
himself actually prefers.”

JACK DALTON’S WORK
EARNING HIM REGULAR
JOB IN THE OUTFIELD
__
Though Not in Finest Condition, Former
Maple Leaf Looks Fine Now-Smith’s
System Bringing Results This Early.
I From fl Stuff Correspondent.!
SAVANNAH, Ga., March 11.—There
Is a growing conviction among the
members of the Newark Baseball
Club, training here under Harry
Smith, that “HI” Meyers will have to
he the eighth wonder of the world,
an all-around wizzard, to heat out
Jack Dalton for that centre field Job
on the Tiger team, the only position
open in the makeup of the Smith
outfit.
The Dalton party is setting an ex
ample which the younger members of
the party are finding it hard to fol
low at times. That, too, in spite of
the fact that Jack is far from being
a well man. He has suffered from
neuralgia and a heavy cold for over
a month, but the manner in which he
is sticking to his guns, his grit and
his pepper, have made bull's-eyes
with the wily Tiger leader.
Smith knows enough about human
nature to realize that nine ball play
ers, working with a will and spirit
and determination, will beat nine ball
players who may he more talented
in some ways but lack the old fire,
the "get-there" spirit. Smith, who
led the Tlgiros In every one of their
ninth-inning rallies that made tho
famous one road trip last season
which was epoch making, as it
marked the beginning of the Tigers’
upward trend, lias the gift of infus
ing and Inspiring the same enthusi
asm In his men. Harry hardly has
time to give orders, because he Is so
busy going through the training
stunts himself.
Smltti'N Command* Are Stern.
When he Rives a command it is
sharp and to the point, and he seldom
has to repeat. His methods keep the
boys busy every minute they are on
the Held. After a brisk two-hour
workout on the ball Held yesterday
Harry hiked three miles In the after
noon to Thunderbolt, a suburb, of
Savannah. Today his plans were to
give special attention to the three
youngsters. He will take them aside
and coach each one personally, cor
recting faults as much as It Is pos
sible to do outside of a regular game,
when emergencies are cropping up at
every hand. •
It rained hard during the night, but
Indications were that the weather to
day would not prevent the Tigers
from going through their dally prac
tise. The harmony among the play
ers this spring, and the respect and
desire all of the boys have to do their
best for the new Bengal leader, malts
the Tigers' ehantes for the pennant
appear more rosy every day. The
boys down here are anxiously wait
ing for reinforcements, for they have
reached the stage where they are
eager to get down to a real practiso
game, with all of the thrills and ex- ,
citement and rivalry such contests
bring up on a training trip. The Ti
gers are sorry that no more than four
games have been hooked during their
Southern stay. The Savannah play
ers are not due until April 1, so thera
Is little hope fnr a challenge from this

HAT MATTER GIVES AL M’CLOSKEY
SOUND BEATING IN TROXLER’S RING
A1 McCloskey, the Elizabeth'‘White
Hope," was handed a beating by Mat
Matter, a Paterson heavyweight, in
the main bout at the Central Institute
last night.
McCloskey was mauled all over the
ring and It was evident from the very
start that Matter could have knocked
his opponent out had he followed up
just a few of his punches. It was
Matier’s bout.in every way from hell
to bell. The Retsytowner outweighed
the Silk City hope by fully fifteen
pounds.
Other bouts on the card furnished
some lively excitement for the fans.
The feature of the night was that
every bout, with the exception of one,
went the four rounds. The only bout
halted before the limit was that be
tween Young Ponto and Bob Massey,
the affair being halted in the second
rimml to save the former. Mickey
Thornton, of this city, outfought and .
outboxed Frankie Sanders, the clever
KUzabeth'lad. Thornton sent his man
to the mat in the llrst round for five
counts, after which he administered
other punches in the remaining rounds
which hurt not a little.
Although going to the floor in the
1 first round, Jim Flanagan showed
I such a decided improvement in t>S
remaining rounds of his bout with
Arthur Connors that he gained tha
decision.
Kid Muscles and Pave Barry, both
of Jersey City, put up a great lovn
match. The latter could have settled
matters in the very first round.
Jim Cullen shaded Jack Bentley. Joa
Gardner handed'Young Patsy a trim
ming, and .VI Sahol and Battling Stev
ens went four rounds to a draw.
