At the tap oi me he leaped Ukt a panther from his Her, rocking the "Big Bear" with a storm of wild rights and lefts. But Trafton, his muscles steeled by long months of football, was ready for him. He weathered the storm and carried the attack to Shires thereafter. Three times In the first round, Trafton's looping left hooks sent the Texan to the canvas, while many times that Arthur was sent reeling backwards by straight rights to his Jaw. All Trafton After First After that round and what actual punches the two tired fighters could propel, it was all Trafton. Three or four times In each of the remaining rounds, he gave Shires a few healthy smashes and then walked around like any bear in a zoo with the very tired Mr. Shires walking after him, five feet away. Of the two, however, Trafton was the more exhausted. His eyes drooped, his hands hung helplessly by his side and he glued his eyes on the timekeeper. It was au right with Shires. Occasionally, he would halt the armistice by a half hearted overhand swing that landed on the ropes and then resume his pace behind his big rival. The little arena was In an uproar, which was deaftening when the two started each Tound by toe-to-toe milling. Friends of both climbed to their corners between rounds oqering advice. Women and men stood up during the fight swinging their fists to convey more advice nad twice the nolss was so great that Arthur and George fought overtime because the referee couldn'tr hear the bell. The two met In the shower baths after the fight, shook hands, con-plimented each other for "making suckers out of those fight fans," and then went arm In arm to a night club. Trafton was in a Jovial mood. "I'll fight anybody for another $1,-000," he chuckled. "That's an easy game. How long has this been going on?"

BARKER NEW YORK, Dec. 17. (JPh-Thus far, at least, the race for the unofficial winter golf championship seems to have developed into a personal duel between Horton Smith, the "Joplln Ghost," and Craig Wood, Bloomfleld, N. J., professional. Of the six major competitions held so far this winter, Smith and Craig each has accounted for two. fhe biggest prize of them all, the Professional G o 1 f e r s' association championship, eluded both of them as Leo Diegel, pro at Agua Caliente, walked off with this honor for the second straight year. Another rich prize, the Catallna Island open, fell Into the grasp of Tony Manero of New York who thus scored the first major victory of his golfing career. Smith and Wood divided the other four tournaments, the Joplln star, who was the sensation of the winter circuit last year, winning the Berkeley open and the Oregon open, while Wood was countering with victories in the Oklahoma City and Hawaiian opens. Wood began the winter season with a triumph in the Oklahoma City open where he scored a 73 on the last 18 holes to nose out Tommy Armour of Detroit, former open title-holder, by two strokes. His 72 hole total was 298; Armour's 300. A few days later Smith shot wonderfully consistent golf at Portland to cap ture the Oregon open with a score of 280 for 72 holes, Wood finishing sixth with 287. Just to make it a real duel, Wood beat out Smith by three strokes to win the Hawaiian open with an aggregate score of 289, the Joplln golfer faltering on the i last two rounds. Smith came back with another 280 to capture the Berkeley open, Wood finishing far back in the ruck with 299 altho the two players were tied with 145 at the halfway point. Then followed the professional championship and Wood eliminated Smith in the first round, one up at the S7th, only to suffer a defeat by Johnny Far-rell by an identical score in the third round. Farrcll went on to .the final round where he bowed to Diegel 6 and 4. Neither Wood nor Smith figured in the Catallna Island 54-hole open championship which Manero won by scoring a oa on ms last 18 holes. Smith finished no better than 14th with 193 and Wood I5y WILLIAM EITT NEW YORK, After almost 10 weeks of constant adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying, weighing, measuring, sounding, parsing, defining, probing, investigating but not sleeping, Frank . E, Wood, the leading football figgerer cf the nation, lias at last uncovered the national "champion" of the gridiron. Hold your seats and don't stand up It's Ohio university! Pooh for Notre Dame! Bah for Pitts-i burghl And a couple of meows for Tur-due! liiGjuiivrsWy-it is. AH cf which; shows what liggering can do ts a fcl-: lew. Frank started the football season j with a carload of copy paper end a gle pclnt-after-touchdown got away, j However, Frankbein3 a big league i calculator could not only bother with I h's league football teams, and so when Thanksgiving dawned he had everything in order. Frank's list, the National Football standings, is the generally accepted method of determining the wcrth of competing teams. Frank's final calculations showed Just how the big boys stood. Utah had the best record and, of course, a fine claim on the national title. Next esme Tennessee. Then Pittsburgh, Tu-lfne, Colgate, Davis-Elkins, Purdue. Notre Da;rr, Fordham, Nirth Carolina and S3 forth. ' It was a great piece of work. Frank could well have been proud of it. And thai, it happened! CrU ess you PORTy (rOCp, TOO case of lead pencils. He had trained all summer by multiplying the stock ticker reports with the people passing thru the Times Square subway station and subtracting the number of times the Athletics hit safely in the eighth Inning of the next to last world series game. From the first kickoff of the Marlon-Howard game, Friday, Sept. 20, the Initial gridiron contest of the season, Frank was in their liggering. He gave the best that was in him all the time. He made splendid gains thru the percentages end his decimal work could not be surpassed. His defense asainst fractions was outstanding. By mid-October Frank had developed a bad case cf adder's pleuriey, The football season over, Frank discovered he had formed such a habit he couldn't quit figgering. He had become a decimal addict, an addition inebriate or something. He started to figure the scores of the minor teams. The result is staggering. Frank's further calculations show Ohio university, nine games won, none lost, none tied, 306 points to opponents, 13, to have a percentage of .380, better than Utah's .953. Further figgering by Frank reveals that St. Mary's has .958, which would p.ive that tram second place, and that by combining Notre Dame's Pittsburgh's and Purdue's opponents' averages those three teams are the unquestioned leaders. These three teams Defeat Elizabeth Team By 57-20 Score Visitors Lack Defense.

The game was just the opposite of thj Amboy game. From the start it was a walkaway for Asbury. who might have scored more points had they not taken it easy in the last half. E.izabeth could not form any kind of a defense capable of stopping th Asbury attack in tho first half, and the best offensive powers only brought them a total of 11 points for the half. Travis' uncanny eye for the basket p.nd Hendrlckson's all round work were features. Jaques put up a great defensive game allowing his man but one field goal. Stone made his first league appearance and scored six points. The Eethystowners were completely out classed and not much can be said for the defense or offense. Crane and Wtltasu were In the game at all tin.?s trying to keep their team in the running, but had a hopeless task. Asbury's next league game is with We5tfield at the local "Y." Nothing has been heard from Wcstflcld, but it Is hoped that Asbury can annex another victory and stay at the top of the heap. Between the halves Harold Walenta and Andros Swanson gave an exhibition of wrestling. Both are members of the "Y" wrestling club. The score: A. r. and O. G. Y. M. C. A. FM.G. Fl.G. n.

PRIOR LEADS HARRIERS, ROCKAFELLER REAPPOINTED TOKYO, Dec. 17. WWchiya Kuma-gae, acclaimed the greatest tennis player Japan ever produced, has announced his retirement from tournament play, having reached the ripe old age for tennis players of 40. Henceforth he will confine his tennis interests to coaching promising young players and engaging in an occasional mild game for exercise and recreation. Kumagae recently proved that he is far from "thru" by winning the doubles championship of Japan with Takeicht Harada, 29-year-old veteran v.ho is planning a return to Davis cup com petition this season after two years' absence. The Japanese team under Harada's leadership is to challenge in the European zone in 1930 instead of In the American zone as it always has done before. "Itchy," es he was familiarly known on American courts almost a decade ago, was the trail blazer of the Japanese In international tennis competition. When he was graduated from Keio university in 1910 he was already known as the best in Japan, but it was not until after the war that Kumagae became a sensational figure on for?ign courts, with his looping drives and tireless defense. In 1919. Kumagae gained the distinction of ranking third on the American list, headed only by the incomparable Tilden and Johnston. He reached the peak of his career in 1921 when he and Zengo Shimntu reached the challenge round of the Davis cup play only to be turned back by Tilden and Johnston. Travis, ri 12 0 24 White.

Greenleaf made a high run of 126, this being possible when he scratched on the break shot. Greenleaf played perfect billiards thruout. He went thru nine straight frames of 14 balls each end his position play was without a flaw. He had few difficult shots and the machine-like precision with which he ran off point after point held . the capacity crowd spellbound.

In the general baseball overhauling and reconstruction work for the major league campaigns of 1930, it should be noticed that neither the world's champion Athletics nor tha National league champion Cubs are displaying any tendency to stand pat and congratulate themselves upon the results of 1929. Both pennant-winning outfits already have been strengthened for next season, especially the Chicago team. The Wrlgley bankroll, which in time may become as famous as the Ruppert check. book than contributed to six pennant- winning Yankee teams, has been tapped substantially since the close of the 1929 race. The Cubs parted with considerable cash, possibly as much as $100,000, be sides several players, to obtain two star pitchers from the minors Malcolm Moss of ths Louisville club and Lynn Nelson of the Kansas City Blues. Ncl son was a leading flingcr In the Amcr lean association last year. Moss came up from vanderbilt university and showed sufficient stuff to Justify a $40, 000 price tag, even tho his record was not up to Nelson's by a wide margin. Here are their official performances for 1929: Nelson Games, 38; won, 15; lost, 6 percentage, .714; Innings pitched, 190 at bst, 707; hits, 184; runs, 82; earned runs; bases on balls, 77; strike outs, 78; earned runs average, 2.99. Moss Games, 43; won, 9; lost, 18; percentage, .333; innings pitched, 274; at bat, 1146; hits, 320; runs, 170; earned runs, 146; bases on balls, 110; strike outs, 87; earned runs average, 4.80.

NEW YORK, Dec. 17. (,T If variety is the spice of hockey aj well as of life, Toronto's Maple Leafs have done a thoro Job of seasoning the National league season. The Leafs have ruined nearly every prediction made about them so far, winning when they i were expected to lose, then dropping games to opponents rated as easy ylc-j tims. Picked as probable leaders of the i international group, they now are In fourth place with but nine point scored ra 13 games. Tonight they meet the third place Montreal Marcons, and the issue Is very much in doubt. Montreal has bsen winning consistently enough to tally 13 points, falling Just one behind second place. They have not met this season, but Montreal has lost two games to the New York Rangers, the only team that Toronto has beaten twice. . -. Where the Maroon-Toronto contest is expected to provide the big surprise of tonight's schedule, the battles at Eoston and New York are considered more important. Boston's champion Bruins clash with the Ottawa Senators, who dropped out of the international group lead lasj; Saturday. It is their second meeting within a week, Boston getting a 3-4 decision in the first. : At New York, the Rangers and Americans have been playing doormat for the other teams while the Rangers have been up among the American group leaders. But the standings have no bearing on their fraternal strife. A year ago, when they were about as far apart, they came out even In four games with a victory apiece and two ties.
