"Fonsey" Vallone and "Chick" Lahey Batted Each Other ' "Fonsey" Vallone defeated "Chick" Lahey of Brooklyn in the prelimi nary bout at the National Athletic club in Danbury Tuesday evening. iFonsey's friends say that he made I "Chick" quit after three rounds of fighting, while Lahey declares that me nout went six or tne elgnt rounds, and that if it were ndt for Vallone's knee he would have had a chance to win. .. Vallone, notwithstanding his de feat at the hands of Darling on Fri day night, was in good condition and as he was much heavier than Lahey, he had not much chance of losing. "Chick" during the first couple of rounds did fairly well, but he Is not in the Italian's class and it was only a .question of time when .Vallone would win. Vallone's admirers claim that In the third Vallone put the ki bosh on Cnlck. - Chick tells a different story. He says that he was holding his own until the sixth round, but in that round while making a rush his stomach collided with Vallone's knee and he was knocked out. Vallone was not seen to-day, but his friends are laughing at "Chick's" story. ; . - . The main go was furnished by Sailor Burke and Frank Clapp of Danbury. The latter la much lighter than the sailor and was not in shape, but be put up a good argument for four rounds. The sailor furnished much amusement by his remarks, en deavoring to scare his opponent, but the Danbury boy mixed It up while nis wma lasted. After four rounds of fighting Clapp was all in and the fignt was awarded to Burke. . ABOUT EDDLE MANN. Waa a Compositor Before He Became a Ball Player.

There was but little interest in the game at the Eagles' hail last night between the Waterbury and the Wal lingford poloists and about 600 peo pie only were in attendance. Man ager Helnmann did not put in an ap pearance, fearing perhaps that he would get a call for not hustling around and get new players. He did present a couple of new ones last night, one of them being Madden who has been playing in Manchester. At that, Madden put up a pretty good game at center and tried to make Tommy Holderness his mark, but the clever local halfback was too clever and too puzzling for the Manchester boy. The game was too easy for the locals who put the ball in the netting Just about as they pleased. Walling ford need not have been permitted to score had the locals worked hard and covered their positions In any kind of form. Evidently the local playerg were as disgusted as was the local management over going up against such a team. Knowlton, the goal tender, appeared with a mask over his head and her certainly need ed something last night to protect him for the locals bombarded him at every opportunity.

Everyoa wanted to a Dicky Pierce, and k juatta all NEWS. the good things that have been said of late concerning his old time play ing. He was there with the Roods and the welkin rang with applause for his superb play. Pierce actually took the ball from the Bridgeport goal down past every opposing play er and tossed It into the cage. Then then crowd went Into the air. Whipple played a great game, scor. Ing three of the Bridgeport scores, while Duggan shot a pretty goal. Devlin and SchiSer landed the joints for New Britain. v , Devlin's goal was a peculiar one. He shot the ball out from the side of Bridgeport's cage.

Easy picking.,-, .Wallingford must strengthen. Janelle acted as manager last night It Is reported that Ilelnmann Is not popular over in Wallingford and Is afraid to try and get good players for fear of dropping money. Bridgeport was not afraid to get the best players In the market and as consequence lust night the rink down there was packed and the lead ers got a good trimming. That bell that was in the audience last night should either be left at home or be kept quiet during the pro gress of a game. It puzzled the play eres last night on two occasions. The Wallingford rink can seat sev en hundred people so they say. With couple of fast players that rink would bo packed every night and the management would coin instead of losing. Waterbury and Bridgeiort are the only two teams that have defeated New Britain. It will be In line for some of the others to take a hand now and make the fight more inter esting. They are beginning to throw Ihe lance into Dews down in New Haven, It would be better to pat the hoy on the back and give htm a boost until such time as New Haven can get a better player. Dicky Pierce got a great reception down In Bridgeport last night ou bis first appearance lu the Connecticut league In some years. He Is the same old Dicky, according to the reports of his playing last night. Knowlton knew what was coming to him lest night from tho Water bury pluggers and that mask, while It may have Interferred with his eye sight certainly kept the nails from knocking one of those eyes out. Captain George Bone of the New Haven roller polo team has secured Frank Mullen of Massachusetts as goal tender for the New Haven team. Mullen, who has boon managing tlic Taunton team of the Massachusetts league is trying to get the service of William Freeninn as a rusher for the New Hnven quintet. Both players are well known around New England. BITS OF SPORTS. Colled From the Columns of Our Busy , ExcaajiRei.

M. C. A. by the score of 26 to 13. Al though the Bubbertown students out weighed the locals, they did not have a look in and Crosby could have made the score much larger had the players so desired. The Crosby quintet was thinking of .disbanding, but judging from the game it put up and the manner In which the students especially , the girls turned out to root, the team will In all probability finish the season. In the ftret half Naugatuck was smothered aud ut the end of the per iod the score was 12 to 4 In favor of the home five.
