THE NEWS SCIMITAR Friday, November s, iuo, ; f FOUR OF DIXIE'S BIG ELEVENS 10 HAVE OPPOSITION Saturday's Contests May Re sult in Elimination of Cham--orsship Contenders-Georgia Tech Has Setup. Vnur of the hie- Southern football teams which have clear records of victories on Southern gridirons for the 1920 season are expected to meet with strenuous oppositlou in their games Saturday, but the other mree are scheduled to meet opponents whom they should dispose of with out undue exertion. The other more important teams also have comparatively easy pro grams before them for Saturday, many frames having been arranged apparently with a view to a break In the. hard grind in preparation for heavy work ahead in the last three weeks of the season. The Vniversity of Alabama, still undefeated, meets Vanderbilt at Birmingham In a contest in which earlier nerf orma noes point to another Kame being added to the credit of the Alabamians. The University of Georgia, also utivanquished this year, made itself an easy favorite; over the University of Virginia in the an nual game at Charlottesville Sat urday, by the Georgians having de feated Auburn a week afro. Virginia Military institute plays North Carolina university at Chapel Hill and since the Virginian cadets defeated North Carolina State after it had bested the university, it would appear that the Virginians' record would again escape untarnished by defeat Washington and le, the fourth of the. undefeated teams to face strong opposition Saturday, will play the University of West Vir ginia et Charleston, W. Va. Setups for These. Georgia Tech, ' Mississippi A. and M. and Tulane. the remaining three big teams which have yet to . lose a 1920 game to another Southern eleven, play teams which, except the University of Florida, have been meeting defeat rather frequently during the season. Tech takes on Clemson in Atlanta; Mississippi A. and M. plays the University of Mis sissippi, and Tulane meets the Uni versity of Florida at Tampa. It will be Florida's first game against a team of the Tulane caliber. Auburn, whose loss to Georgia uni versity was a surprise of .'last Sat urday, will play Birmingham-Southern at Birmingham in what should prove not any top hard a contest for the Plainsmen. Other games In which more important elevens par ticipate include those between the University of Tennessee and Transyl vania, at Knoxvllle, and the Uni versity of South Carolina and David son, at Davidson. - ITAD'STID-BITS ANOTHER . KETCHEL. ' The other day in an article we peeped that opponents for cham pions drop from the skies. Just as everything Is dark and dead a pugi listic meteor drops in on us, and we're off again. Today we roceived copies of the Sydney Referee, also a few letters from fight fans in the land of the I kangaroo. I It seems that a middleweight star has . arrived there, and they won't be satisfied until' Mike O'Dowd or Johnny Wilson go there and ' beat bim. The newcomer is Billy Shade, from San Francisco. Bill dropped in "In an off-hand sort of way." Bill's first opponent was Hubert Hinton, of New South Wales. Hin ton had won his last 1 J fights with knockouts and was looked upon by fans and scribes of his home town as a second Is Darcy. Shade met him and stopped him in half a round. Shade was then matched with Tommy Uren, middleweight cham pion of Australia. Uren had wins over such men as Eddie McGoorty, Jimmy Clabby, Frits Holland and Fred Kay, and was looked upon as a wonder. At the ringside the night of the Uren-Shade fight, odds of 'b to 1 were offered that Uren would win. Shade was considered a spread for the champ. Shade knocked Uren stiff with a right cross in the nineteenth round and copped the title. W. F. Corbett. of the Sydney Ref eree, says this of Shade: "Tommy held and hit frequently, and used the heel of his hand occa sionally. For this latter offense he was cautioned once. But never a whimper of protest was heard from Shade. Squealing is unknown In the vocabulary of the fighter. "Billy Shade has it in bim to be come great as a boxer. Ho is only 20 years of age. is well built and stands straight up to his man in the way that the best exponents of the best days of the game stood. But he must get rid of a couple of man nerisms. He often brushed his right glove across his nose, as did Har lam Eddie Kelly, who told mo ho copied that foolishness from Mike Gibbons, ex-champlon middleweight of the world. Shade appeared to think his trunks needed continuous attention. Several times in every round he took a hitch in them, seem ingly under the impression that they were about to drop off. These are habits likely tj get the American into troublo at any moment In a contest Three or four times I'ren stood off to permit of the trouble some hip-wear being adjusted. As far as could be seen, there was noth ing wrong with it. There were times when the fury of the fighting caused him to forget his trunks for a min ute or more, yet they remained in position." Benny Kauff. aatomobile dealer, heatedly denied John McG raw's charges that he was a crook, but admitted he could be one if he wanted to be, saying Heinle Zimmer man had offered him the money to throw a game, but he wouldn't take it. Anyway, Kauff was swapped to Toronto and since has been recalled, indicating that McGraw has changed his mind as to Benny, and believes him innocent now. Dempsey And Carpentier To Sign Friday NEW YORK, Nov. 5. Final details of the contract governing the proposed world's heavy weight boxing championship bout between Jack Dempsey and Georges Carpentier will be signed lata today. Dempsey and his manager, Jack Kearns, were ex pected to arrive from Canada during the day. Carpentier and his manager, Francoise Desoamps, plan to sail for France tomorrow. THMSK COODNELVb-wE ARE.

Dentists to Clash Should Prove a Hard Figh BY BOB PIGUE. The city football championship chase will be considerably clarified Friday afternoon at Hodges field, when Tech High and Central High will meet on the gridiron in an effort to eliminate each other from the hunt for the local football crown. Neither team has been defeated by a local eleven thus far, and the team that loses Friday will be eliminated for the championship. Sat urday afternoon Memphis University school and the University of Tennessee Dentists clash at l Owing to Innnumerable injuries too the Tech High team, tne central Warriors will enter the fray as the choice to win, for the C. H. S. team is in far better physical condition than its Friday rivals, and the ab sence of several of the Tech stars is expected to prove costly to their chances in battering down a win over the Green and Gold. PLENTY OF FIGHT. Although the Tech machine is showing signs of rough usage, and Its engine is missing, there Is still plenty of fight in the remaining stars of the team and the substitutes that will mako their appearance In the Fridav matinee, and Central High, although the choice to bring home the bacon, is going to have far from a rosy assignment In so doing. Coach Tom Shea of Tech High had been figuring on having easy Bail ing in the Friday contest, as his ma chine was in fine shape. However, a flock of hard scrimmages, and one stiff session with the University of Tennessee Dentals resulted in sev eral of his men being hurt, and the result is that his outfit will be some what crippled in starting the gome. Capt. Lynn Ferguson, star full back of the Tech team, is nursing a badly Injured ankle, and Mcintosh, left half, has a wounded hip. There will be three new faces in the line owing to injuries. Harry Schorr, star back of the Central High team, will be on the sidelines when the two teams swing Into action Friday afternoon. Schorr was badly hurt In the battle against the Little Rock High school last week, sustaining one broken rib and several fractured ribs as the result of having been fiercely manhandled by the Raxorbacks. Harry played the last three periods of the Arkan sas game with his Jersey hanging in threads from his back. However, he was obliged to seek a physician and get patched up, and will be out of the game Friday. M. U. S. VSTENNESSEE. The crack Memphis University school eleven has a big assignment Saturday afternoon at Hodges field when it tackles the heavy machine of the University of Tennessee Den tal department. The Dentals will outweigh C. H. S. nearly lit pounds to the man, which will prove a big advantage. However, Coach Buck ingham of M. U. S., isn't worried over the additional poundage that the Tennesseans will carry onto the field with them, and Is figuring on his lighter team coming away with a win. Buck admits that he looks for a hard game aud is drilling a lot of fight In'o his men, which will be necessary when the machines clash. Saturday.

S. took his team through a hard scrimmagu at Russwood Thursday afternoon, ironing out tho kinks and perfect ing team play. He tried out several new tricks he plans to uncork on the Dentists. Quarterback Bacherlg, of M. U. S., is out of tho lineup with a wounded ankle, but is counting on going in, injuries and all. In case he is laid out, Turley will be called on to sit in for him. Joe Craig, M. t'. fl. full back, had Intended playing Satur day, but in Thursday's scrlmmae he was injured aain and will be missing when the two teams square oft for action. Craig was hurt two weeks ago in the ('. H. V. game, and was about well when he was tackled fiercely by a M. 1. K. scrub and went down groaning in pain with an Injured leg. Mctlohlrlck Is out with a boll on his neck, and other members of the squad are nursing minor injuries, but as a whole the outfit !s in good shape nni ready for anything. Saturday's SHine is expected to he a great battle, for neither team has been defeated by a local outfit so far this season, and a defeat for either eleven mentis their elimination from the city championship hunt.

A double windup has been ar ranged by Promoter Billy Haack, of the Southern Athletio club, for Monday night. In the first half of the twin card, Joa Donley, of Newark, will meat Young Demp sey, of Memphis, in eight chap ters. In the last half Battling Norfolk and Battling Gahee, negro heavyweights, are down for an eight-round olash, Donley made his first appearance here against Red Watson, of New Or leans, and was defeated by Watson, who is a left-handed fighter. Don ley said he was at a disadvantage be cause Watson was left-handed, which really makes It awkard for a right hander. Watson later gave Pal Moore a pood fight. Donley has trained hard for this fight, and expects to get Dempsey's number from the start. Dempsey's last start was in St. Louis, where he was beaten by Pewee Kaiser. Rattling Gaheo has just returned after a series of bouts in New Or leans, where he won several fights. He Is training hard for his meeting with Norfolk, and says he expects to win.

There was a difference of height, and that a small one, that marked the contrast between them : and . Dempsey's dark complexion and burly build from the waist up also t contrasted, strongly with Georges' b'lond complexion and most slender build. Dempsey smiled like a big, friendly boy as he stood there with Georges. He didn't give a hint of the demon he can be In tho ring, and after siz ing Carpentier up he remarked: ( "You are plenty big enough. I rn't see anv ereat difference. When we get In there we'll fight as hard 9- d an sa aun4 y&tmmu Hundreds more of High-Grade $20 and $35 that are equally as 2 South Main St. 39 as we can. Outside the ring we can be friends." , ' Georges smiled that sunny smile of his and came right back with: "Veree good, veree good. In the ring we do our best to ween. , Out side it Is different. We can be friends." And they shook hands. Both fighters are In pretty good shape right now. Dempsey has been training aboard the Granite State, a naval training vessel anchored near Ninety-sixth street, in the Hudson river. He boxes there with Bill Tate aiid Sergt. Ray Smith nearly every day and he does a lot of, road work in Central park. He Is plump around the Jowls, Is Jack, but that's all. His waistline Is Suits and Overcoats at big values. See thent.

His clear eyes and healthy- complexion indicate that he has ben taking fine care of himself, and when he gets into tho ring with Carpentier he will be as good as he ever was, if not better, for he haa only attained' his full growth and 14 somewhat more mature now than ha was when he met Willard. Carpentier, quick, catlike and sinewy, is in good condition, too. The French champion, in street clothes, doesn't reveal the strength that Is embodied in his shoulders, arms and legs, but . in ring togs he surprises everyone who has seen him.
