The prospects for a winning toot ball squad this fall at Rock Island high school looks good at present. There will be seven letter meh back in uniform, besides a goodly num ber of youngsters from last year's second team. - The first call for candidates will be made next Tues day and real work will start en the following day. The same coaching staff and management will be in force as last year: W. L. Kimmel, coach, and R. J. Clark handling the business end. If length of practice has anything to-do-with making a team, the Is landers ought to be world beaters before the season is over, with the extra half-hour every day to put in on handling the oval. School closes this fall at 2:50 Instead of 3:25 as for the last couple of years. The team will also get an extra week of drill before : the alumni game. The grad game this year will probably be pulled about the second or third week in September. giving the locals plenty of time to get in condition. Fifteen new jer seys- have been purchased in addi-! tion to a large quantity of other athletic goods which will improve the appearance of the squad. ! "Dude" Hmkey on Job. Captain Hihkey.,is back ready for school and is in fine 'condition.: "Dude" has made the football squad for the last two years and is ex pecting to make a name for him self this year. Two years' ago he played at end, last year at tackle, and fans expect him to be one of the best tackles in these parts this year. Hinkey has been putting in the summer at hard labor in a fac tory and is as hard as the proverb ial nails. Among' other letter men cording back is Doman, center on last year's eleven. Last season was Daman's first appearance on the first squad and with this added experience he ought to be a whirlwind at his old position of center or at tackle. Last fall's guards, Anderson and Camp bell, will both don moleskins again this year.. These men should bols ter up the line quite a bit with their weight , Coach Kimmel will have an easy time picking his ends this tall1 with three regular men of last fall's squad fighting for places. Schmidt Johnson and Littig will all be eli gible for pigskin work this fall, so that the locals are assured of good material on the wings. Mast Find Backfleld. One of the things that the coach will have to build up is a good back- field Only one regular back will return this fail. All except Curtis Blankenburg, half, graduated last fall. The work of both Milatoad and Dnmn will be mused. The Is landers will hare a hard time find ing a quarterback that will come up to Duffln. and Millys powerful smashes and steady defensive work will be lacking to a great degree. The locals are not the only tri cky team that Is expecting great things in the coming tall. -Both Mo line and Davenport are making a strong bid for the tri-clty title. Dav enport has a new coach who, the Iowans say, will lead the Rod and Blue squad to an-easy victory. Mo line, with practically the whole of last year's lino still In school, la also confident .

The mystery of the "new Billy Miske" is proving a hard one' for veteran followers of the ring game to fathom. 1 'The advance guard of experts find themselves perplexed to as sign a real reason for the great im provement shown by the St Paul challenger of the world's heavy weight championship. The mem ory of his bouts with Bat Levinskey and Tommy Oibbons still fresh in their minds they have been agree ably surprised at what they have seen in the training quarters which the St'' Paul lad has opened at Eastman Springs. See Chance for BilL So determined does Miske seem that he will accomplish what many regard as the impossible when he engages Champion Jack Dempsey here on the afternoon of Labor Day that many now incline to the be lief, that the path ol Jack Kearns' prize won't be an easy one. tie has taken on many pounds of bone and muscle, his speed and accuracy are improved and his punching power has sent the fans away from his camp strong in the beiiei tnat if he lands on Dempsey in a vital spot with the full strength of his power that a new champion will come into being. - :, i Manager Jack Reddy is having his troubles getting the sparring partners that Miske needs to con dition himself. He brought three alone with him when Miske went into training last Sunday, but these are so badly battered up now that the manager is burning the wires in an effort to get the ma terial needed. Knocks Ont Partner. ' ' In his first training bout Miske dropped Jack Heinen, giant Chi cagoan, to the mat with a straight right hand punch. Heinen is the same individual who traveled wren Jack Johnson and Jess Wlllard when both were champions and his story of the "new" Miske is an in teresting one. Here's what he had to say after he had been stopped by Billy: "I worked with both Johnson and Willard when they were champ ions and stopped some of their best punches, too. Never before, how ever, have I been hit any harder than Miske bit me. I was expect ing htm to use his left hand. I had seen him in previous bouts and his left seemed to me his most danger ous punch. Possibly, he had heard that I had expresesd such an opin ion. That was a fine way tor nim to let me in on the big secret I'll be watching both of those hands from now on." Billy Burk and Jimmy Delaney, hailing from Texas and St Paul, respectively are the others standing the bntnt of the Miske ammunition Just now. Both are lighter men, but are fast and clever boxers. In the hope of giving his man all the opposition he believes he will re quire to train his punches properly, Manager Reddy has invited Jack Wilson and Jack Blackbnrne, Chi cago heavyweights, t o Join the camp. "Every day fighting makes a fighter," says Reddy, "and if husky sparring partners are going to help , in this ease, Miske will have them. We are out to cop this time and will not spare any ex pense in achieving the desired end." Always Tore Dm "Rather he was always tearing in," says Reddy, "ready to give and take at all times. We have pre; pared a special plan of battle for this fight and have every confi dence that It will work ont aa ex pected. Dempsey is far from un beatable. Don't forget that he bawled over a lot of ordinary fight ers la winning his way to the championship and Jess -Wlllard didn't even measure up to this class at Toledo. That's the big reason why we're warning that the short end Isn't going to look so bad along about 6 o'clock' on the even ing of Labor Day. GLASSY DflHTflrjSCDTilSLTiC?
