' In the preliminary game, two; new teams making tlicir debut In • the City Cage League clashed wltli' Gas and Oil defeating the Oulhv.'.s, ] 25 to 8. ! The feature battle was marred by frequent fouls on the pan ot tlu Blylhcvllle aggregation which shon-ed lack of training. ElghUW personal fouls were committed by the locals and the fouls account ?d for exactly nine [joints by the visitors. Charles T. Kramer, coach and player of the BVytlKivlllo team nscJ almost two complete teams. Ti'.e lit- i tie menicr of the locals was the I only player meted out four person• al fouls although every man on the Blytheville" team but one had one or more* fouls chalked up against him. Sanford High -Scorer It was speed'ond team-work that sent the visiting cagers out In frcnt in the first quarter and they never relinquished their lead, but Increased.; It steadiK after the first lialf. 'Sanford, speedy forward o! the visitors, was the high 'scorer with a total of 13 points. Hudson and Kennlngham lied for hljh point for Blytheville with six each. The Blytheville team although composed, of Individual stars working is'a unit for Ihe" first time and never functioned with smoothness approaching the fine work ot the visitors. Especially did the Ion; passing game of the home team break down while the Holland Inys. •slert to'evqry opportunity, often swept toward an undefendc:! goal There was not a single substitution for the Holland five. McQuistion with six field was the high point man of tlic Clt> League contest. The Gas and Ol forward got right In she second half »'hen he sunk five gc.ils. Crawford Greene was- referee and Glenn Durham umpire. A small crowd was on hand for the games.

Leonard Sachs, the Mauler's official mouthpiece, says Jack drew down $11,000 for refeiccing a bou in Minneapolis recently betwcei Dick Daniels and Yale Okun. H< works on a guarantee, never les: than $2500; with a percentage privilege, says Sachs. But just flgiin the' Mauler's drawing power when as a mere referee, he. can draw (11,000 worth of business for a figh between such men as Okun anr 1 Daniels..
