Whitencr tore into the Memphis Jcv: from the stall nr.d hit Wolfe with everything he had Inn could not pul the Blulf City veteran on I.. Wolfe kept his chin well covered up and occasionally snapped out of i;is huddled iwsiure to wallop Whltcner. The only knockdown &; Die fight wen! to Whiciier wh: *at the Memphis boy squarely t the canvass but Wolfe was up without EL count. While Whitencr led the flghi throughout Wolfe appeared in b=l- ttr sha)>e with !he lust round and came out of his corner to tt2nd toe to toe and slugged with the Missouri tough boy. The linal round was easily the best of the bout. Otto Young, Blythevllle negro, all but knocked Freddie Hall, Mcm- phis darky, out of the ring in the third round of the semi-wlr.dup Young jerked Hall back Into t'ht ring Just as the Memphis hoy seemed certain to plunge through the ropes and dropped over the knockout punch when Hall came up from Ihe canvass. The first round was fuirly even but Young scored two knockdowns in the -second round with the bell saving Hall. K1d Bradford. Ash street, dark, sprung a surprise by hauling James Macklin, better known negro, to a draw. Bradford was not chri}Ue£ with much of a chance against Macklin before the fight but It anything, he had a slight edge on Macklin at the finish. Sailor Smith won over Johnnl: Eeaton, brother of Tommy Rya 1 Senton. who defeated Smith last week, in a four round bout tlrnt ended with the referee raisin' Smith's hand while Scaton luins helpless on the ropes.

AND :v * vrvrv~> urns WjllMM fi.RAUCIliR liaseball Repartee This Dnn Taylor, they tell us. is a mean man with a word, ttis wise-cracking on and oft the diamond has done much to relieve the strain under which the Cubs have been battling. > Dan is the new face and voice in the Cub outfield. He has been taking the place of Old Hoss Stephenson, who hasn't been feeling so well lately. Dan came to thd Cabs this year from Reading, where he led the league in hitting last season with a mark of .367. He was up in the big show once before, with Washington, but drifted to Memphis. His home is Lash, Pa. Dan Is new to the big leagues, but a member of a very old school of baseball players, the same school that graduated Rabbit Maranvllle and some others with R quick tongue and the ability to use the right word In a tough spot. During the recent crucial series in which the Cubs battled Brooklyn. Dan got off what Gabby Harlnelt tells us he thinks is the best wise crack of the season. It popped out while the Cubs were ai bat. There was a runner on third and one out, with Hack Wilson at bat. Tile Brooklyn infielders moved in. Dan Taylor shouted over to your Uncle Wilbert: "Hey, Robbie! Do you see who's at bat? You better move back these infielders or next thing you'll have to pry one of yonr boys off the fence with a putty knife." Mickey Minces No Words As choir leader of the raucou,';- voiced -kidders of the big leagues, we nominate Mickey Cochrane, with Dan Taylor In the role of what track handicappers call a "keen contender." His crack during the last world series cannot be forgotten. It- seems that during the game at which President and Mrs. Hoover were spectators, some very ofl- color language was being passed around by the players. Judge Landis heard it plainly from his box seat, figured the presidential party must be hearing it, too, and told ?,fessrs. McCarthy and Mack to have their boys be more discreet After the message was relayed to the players between innings. Cochrane put on his armor and went to the plate. The first Cub batsman was a little slow getting to the dish, and Mickey turned and called out in a quavering soprano voice, 1 Come on, girls, let's be up, and doing." t * • Gttlinr Goats Sometimes kidding wins ball games. It was Dan Taylor's remark to Adolfo Luque, the hot- By lUI.I.IAM NKA Service Spflrls Writ NEW YOliK.—A yomijj man from the peK'lied on the back of a tireless mustang. Is lighting odds and Iradition lo ride as one of America's "Dig Four" against, the BritLsli in the September international polo brutles. The young man Is Eric Pixlley of Riverside, Calif. For yeats ho has ridden hard in pursuit oj his ambition, lo play with Ihe UiK Four against Britain. But no young man from the west ever rode as one of the Big Four. The east doiuinntcd in every In- lernnlional match. Pcdley, however, refuses lo abandon the chase, and this year it b>stns to appear that ii will be Impossible to leave him olf ihe American team, tf IVdlcy rides, he will be the only one of his kitxl—the first westerner torido with iluu liule band of bhie-blixxt- 3d ball rhasers. Polo hnn known no more persistent player. It has been six years since lie rudely rode into the national IH>]O picture as a brilliant .member of the Mldwick Four thai .vori the American open champion- jhip and htoughl California its Ilrst important polo prestige. In the summer of 1924 he had RP. clght- joal rating and he was invited to sit in with the International squad preparing to defend Ihe Westchester Cup agiilnsl the British. It seetued assured he would ride —but .something happened. It was said he could nol obtain suitable rriounls. Maybe il was politics, which had been played with polo before 1924. Maybe it wns dandruff —bui Pcdley did not ride. ' This year he is riding right back In thrrc again—undaunted, in the lest matches he has shown all that Is needed to put him at No. 1 on the American team. He has a string of 19 ponies, most of them bred on the plains where trails never gel too long for a horse. He Is M and has ihe build of a cow- l:oy, nearly six feel lall, and is lithe and quick. At Stanford he was u urciil boxer. He is a dnshini; hoLsi'inan and a deadly hitter. He makes sncelnciilai 1 plays and makes them look rasy. Ukc Tommy Hitchcock, leader of the Big Four. I'edli-y has ridden horses since lie mis a baby, lie has been playing polo for 111 years, improving conii>.li-i!tly. Tills year he is al the lop ol his game. Since In- battled for a p'.nc? on (he American ii-am six years ago, Pcdley hns altered his style considerably. He used to hit from tack In Ihe saddle, alter Ihe qualm old English custom. Bui he lias shortened his stirrups and rides HOT hi the Amciican fashion, hitting from a perch well forward in the saddle. Ills accuracy makes up for what he mlgiil liii-k in distance. 1'i'dley'f axiom being llial yon can'i net a home run on a foul ball. He is in polo as Willie Keeler was in baseball, p. place hitler.
