(Picture on back page.) New Ixirk. March 12. Special. Luis Firpo, the South American heavy weight, knocked out Bill Brennan of Chicago in the twelfth round of a scheduled fifteen round bout in Madison Square Garden tonight. A series of terrific right and left hand wallops to the face had Brennan reeling, and as the veteran tottered around trying to raise his arms to defend himself against Firpo's tremendous attack the tinal right hand s BltJ.

Brennan fell as a pole might rigidly. Not a muscle quivered in his big frame as he lay face down on the canvas. The referee, John Appel, swung the count of ten over the unconscious battler, but that was a mere matter of form. Brennan was out for keeps, it was plain for all to see. In rYont Till the Twelfth. Carried to his corner, still unconscious, Brennan soon was revived. When Brennan took the first hard blow from Firpo in the hectic twelfth round he appeared to be out in front and was lighting a careful fight, evidently with the idea in mind of copping the decision on points. lie had Firpo looking bad from a severe cut over the left eye which practicaly blinded the South American from the fifth round on. Brennan kept pecking at the damaged optic, and alternated his attack by inflicting considerable body punishment, but Luis was too strong. When he found he couldn't reach Brennan at long range the South American tried j tearing in, swinging his powerful arms at Erennan's body. When his punches landed they shook up Brennan, who did the surprising by standing up as long i as he did. Strong Man and Fierce Puncher. Firpo is far from being a finished fighter. He Is just a strong man with a terrible punch. Against Brennan he showed to advantage because Bill could not noia on nis rusnes. jrirpo s defense was none too good. He would hare been an easy mark for Dcmpsey's left. Brennan hit Firpo freely, stung him time and again with lefts to the face, but they did not appear to hurt. The Buenos Aires battler's attack was Raillike. He swung his arms as a club swinger might swing Indian clubs. Brennan found it next to impossible to halt him when he went, bull-like, into an attack, ripping and tearing at his opponent with his giant strength. He awkwardly rushed and pounded Brennan down to defeat and there was no denying him when he saw he had the old trial horse of the ring on the run. But in all fairness to Brennan, it must be said that he fought a good game fight against the younger, bigger, and stronger man. and he got a big cheer from the crowd when it was all over, EARL, CHICAGO, ANNEXES WELTER AMATEUR TITLE Gary, Ind..

It was an interesting contest all the way, with both boxers trying for a knockout from the first Schaeffer depended upon a right cross, while Burman sunk rights and lefts in Frankie's body and occasionally shot his right to the head. Burman forced the issue most of the way and had the better of the majority of the rounds. Sixth Schaeffer's liound. In the sixth round Schaeffer had a decided advantage. He shot his right to the stomach and crossed the same hand to the jaw several times. He also had the best of the infighting. This was the only round in which Frankie had a decided advantage.

TOM HAMMOND. Take Your Pick of Four Al Cards to Be Staged at the Yards on March 19 One of the greatest boxing shows ever held in Chicago will be staged by Blackhawk post of the American Legion at Dexter Park pavilion on March 19 w hen some of the greatest boxers of their weight in the country will appear in ten round contests. The complete card was arranged yesterday by Capt. Russell, commander of the post, and Jim Mullen, who ever is willing to lend a helping' hand in affairs fo"r charity. The matchmakers met with one disappointment and that concerned Frankie Genaro, flyweight champion, who is ill in bed with the flu. Members of the Blackhawk post are so enthusiastic over the show that each has agreed to dispose of his quota of tickets, thereby assuring a complete sellout befort the doors are throwu open at the mammoth building in the stockyards district. Others, who are friendly to the post, have agreed to put their shoulders to the wheel with the result a great gathering will be on hand. Draw for Order of Bouts. The card will include four ten round bouts and an eight session preliminary. With the exception of the opener, principals will draw to determine which bout will be the final, and the order in which the others will be staged. As many referees wiil be chosen and they will draw to see which bouts they handle. The card will be featured by the bout between Joe Lynch, bantamweight champion, and Joe Burman of Chicago. This is a match any promoter woy,ld be glad to handle. Bur-man'a record entitles him to a fihot at the title, but the only way he will be able to wrest the championship from his opponent March 19 is by a knockout or foul. Lynch and Burman have agreed to scale 119 pounds at 3 o'clock on the afternoon of the contest. Harold Smith, bantamweight idol of the stockyards, and Eddie Anderson of Moline will tangle in another of the all-star bo''s. This will be strictly a bantamweight clash. Both have agreed to weigh 118 pounds. (lart-ia to Meet Mandell. Sammy Mandell of Rockford and Frankie Garcia of Memphis will trade punches in another ten rounder. It will be recalled that Garcia gave Mandell his first setback In over twenty fights when he knocked Sammy down on the Commodore recently and won a clean cut decision. They will make weight at 126 pounds. In the other ten rounder Patsy Flannigan of St. Louis will clash with Mike Dundee of Rock Island. They have agreed to do 124 pounds. Like the other contests, this bout will attract its share of attention. In the eight round opener, Joe O'Hara of Fort Dodge, la., and Billy Sterns of izations they represent, will be pub GOL. HAMMOND'S LADS IN TRIBUNE'S BOUTS BY WALTER ECKERSALL. Col. Tom Hammond of the 124th field artillery is a strong booster for the Chicago amateur boxing championships to be conducted by the Tribune A. A. at the Ashland Boulevard auditorium on March 21, 22, 23, 26, and 27. So enthusiastic is the colonel over amateur boxing as a means of fitting young men for the service that his outfit will be represented in the tourney. Col. Hammond will be remem bered as a member of the Hyde Park High school elevens of the early 1900s. He afterward went to Michigan, where he played under Fielding H. Yost for four years. He still is considered by " Hurry Up " to be one of the greatest players who ever wore the Maizo and Blue. Instills Preparedness. During the world war Col. Hammond was connected with the 149th field artillery, which distinguished itself so honorably. During the time he was in service Col. Hammond realized the great good which boxing did in the upbuilding of the American army and is now trying to instill the same kind of preparedness in the 124th field artillery by having his men take part in boxing contests. When such persons as Col. Tom Hammond, who know from experience what boxing can do for the youth of the country, believe in amateur contests, it is little wonder that more than 200 entries have been received for the Tribune A. A. tourney. Calf's Finals Tonight. In order to have his gymnasium represented by the best boxers, Howard Carr will hold final bouts for his pupils at his gym, 32 South Clark street, tonight. Carr had a team in the middle states championships of the A. A. U. at Gary, Ind., last week, and his boys finished third. Honors went to the Gary Y. M. C. A., while the Hoosier A. C. of Indianapolis was second. Carr will enter at least twenty in the tournament, while Silvi Ferretti, owner of the gymnasium which bears his name, will have nearly as many. Plans for staging the tournament are progressing favorably. So many details must be arranged for comfort of contestants and spectators that nothing will be overlooked to stage the contests in hangup fashion. Prices of admission will be within reach of all, and so much Interest is being displayed that it is a pity a larger building is not available. In another year efforts will be made to secure the Coliseum, where tw-o rings can be erected and all who care to see amateur boxing can be accommodated. Entries Close Tomorrow.

Baseball Fight Brewing as Moguls Row on Benton Status S fez K. M. LANDIS. TRIBUNE Photo. New York, March 12. United Press. Disagreement between Baseball Commissioner Landis and Fres- w s ident Heydler of the National league on the J C. Rube Benton case may bring out a situation that will be a real one. Landis ruled that Benton was good enough , to pitch for the Cincinnati Reds if he was good enough to pitch in the American association on moral grounds. Heydler ordered the Reds not to put Benton on the pay roll, and said the former Giant southpaw could not come back to his league. The attitude of the National league president in this instance appears as inconsistent as it was in 1917, when the Ilerzog-Benton first was brought to his attention. Both players made charges against each other and he permitted them to remain in baseball for their natural period of usefulness and now, six years later, he raises objection t6 the return of Benton for reasons that existed for three years while Benton was pitching for the New York Giants. Benton-IIerzog Row. Benton claimed in 1917 that Herzog made him an offer to throw a game and that he laughed it off and told Art Fletcher, captain of the Giants, about it. Benton pitched the game in question and won it. Heydler brought the pair before him and they both questioned the veracity of each other. Herzog claims Benton was "out to get him " because of some trouble they had when Herzog was managing the Cincinnati Reds and Benton was pitching for him. ' Herzog said he fined Benton for breaking the training rules, and that Benton said at the time that he LANDIS TO HEYDLER CINCINNATI, March 12. Cincinnati National league recruits, who arrived at the Reds' training ramp last night, said K. M. Landis, commissioner of baseball, told them on a train yesterday that Pitcher J. V. I" Rube " Renton would play ball this season, a dispatch from Orlando, Fla., to the Times-Star says today. Landis is quoted as saying: " I'm running the game and Benton is going to play ball." The commissioner was on his way to Belleair, ila. would get even with him. Benton was later traded to the Giants and Herzog afterwards went back to the same team. Heydler in Bad Spot. Heydler's position is all the more Inconsistent because he was one of tne prime pushers in the move to create the position of baseball commissioner and appoint Landis to the job. Ban Johnson, the American league president, opposed it and Heydler and his National league associates made the threat of a twelve club league, and Landis was put in office. The position of Heydler is rather precarious, as he has against him in this issue, Garry Herrmann, the president of the Cincinnati Reds, who is about the smartest and most experienced man in baseball. He has also to figure that Landis has a seven year contract if it comes to a showdown.
