New Regulars to a to 22 score on a very slippery floor in the Morrison armory last Friday night. A bazar had been held in the building previous to the basketball game, causing the Hoor to Ix-come very slippery, nnd tie home team would not permit the ue of resin on shoes to prevent .sliding, so the Moliners in-o-tcd the game be pljyeil in ipiart'TJ. giving them the advantage of short icsts after the tiresome sliding around on the li lloip.

PORSES A(2 PEDOCED - SO K VE- Sport Spotlight Jak IJaccr, "who battled Hattling Johnson iu the et-iui-windup at the ISurtis Thursday, night, is anxious to land another match with the Moline boy. "I wasn't right Thursday night, said Itacer. "I believe I tan beat Johnson decisively if I get another opportunity and I am going to request another match with that Moline battler. Somehow or other I couldn't get started riaht and my blows wouldn't land squarely. I lacked a lot of Muff which I should have had against a tough. boy like the Moline scrapper. He's a good boy but I know I can trim him." When Krankie Sinnett, Johnson's manager, heard this statement he became rather peeved. "Hacer doesn't know how lucky he was to stay the limit. I was very much disappointed with the bout for I think "Walt should have kayopcd him on two or three oc casions. If Racer was not right, lie had not hi n j on Johnson, for Walt did not put up near the fight he is capable of. If we ran match the two boys again jt till lie curtains for the Davenporter," chirped Sinnett. Much like the college graduate on his first job, when he thinkshe knows it all and the rest of the world Is a minus intellectual quantity, so is the Soung fighter just beginning. There are two or three instances of this sort in the tri-cities. Beginners, who today would still be fighting prelims if it wasn't for their managers, refuse to listen to their more experienced advisors, thinking they know it all. When they get into the semi-w indup nnd main event class they desire toJ ditch their pilots. In other words, they want to bite the hand that's been feeding them and made them what they arc today.
