/BRITT, FORT DODGE WIN AT EMMETSBURG TILOEN'S CHIEF I INTEREST NOT IN DIGNIFIED SPORT Music Is His Hobby but He Doesn't Play a Note; Likes Bridge. By ORLO ROBERTSON NEW YORK, Feb. 27. UP)--.He says his name is William Tatem Tilden II but it really isn't. He is William Tatem Tilden, Jr. They called him "junior" to distinguish him from his father and elder brother, Herbert Marmaduke Tilden and he hated it. So as soon as he could, "Junior" Tilden became William Tatem H. Big- Bill has four great interests ---tennis, the stage, music and bridge. His brother Marmaduke I taught him to play tennis, beat him consistently, but died before Bill became great. Acts Before Footlights. Bill long ago reached the professional stage but he isn't considered a good actor. He knows the ' technique, can memorize the lines of everyone in the cast but he becomes self-conscious. Music ranks next to his devotions. He has attended so many operas that he knows most of the lines. Bill plays no instrument but he has one Â» , of the largest collections of phonograph records--all of singers--in the country. "If I had to give up either tennis t or music," he said at the height of | his career, "I would give up tennis." I'lays Bridge Well. ! He plays bridge as well as he ^ plays tennis and almost as much. He , makes frequent remarks--"oh what 1 a rotten hand--" or "well played" to his partner or the reverse. Contract bridge is his favorite. Tilden likes celebrities and cultivates them. He enjoys his position in the limelight and likes to join with others in the same posttlorj. He smokes nothing but cigarets and many of them. He does not drink. He is fastidious about food. Likes steak or chops and always eats one or the other before a match. He loves to see his name in print and has written novels and numerous short atories. Is Self-Willed. . Bill has never married. He is self- willed, argumentative but never pugnacious, and rarely admits he is wrong. Charley Pyle tried to argue with him into turning- professional in 1626. Tilden had turned down his flrat uCCer iu 3920 while returning from Australia with the Davis cup. He refused again and Pyle, nettled, said: "Mr. Tilden, I think you are a Wankety-blank fool." "Mr. Pyle," replied Bill serenely, "I think you're right." MITCHELL BEATS ST, ANSGAR FIVE IN 34-29 BATTLE All Stars' Stubborn Defense Is Too Much for Lions; Heckstein Is High. ST. ANSGAR, Feb. 27.--The St. Ansgar Lions lost a close battle to the Mitchell All Stars on the Mitchell basketball court, 31 to 29. The contest was close all the way but Mitchell had a slight edge on their opponents on account of the small floor. The stubborn defense put up by the All Stars made it almost impossible for the Lions to get thru and make short shots. The score was tied at the half but as soon as the second half started thÂ£ Mitchell players took the lead and held on until the final whistle. Heckstein took the high point honors with 16 counters and Priem got 13 for the Lions. Box score: ST. ANSGAR--29 FG Ringer, f 3 Priem, f 5 R. McMIllin, c 2 A.

Lee Jones, Mason City, 150, shaded Kid Weaver, Cartcrsvlllc, 148, in S rounds. Billy Banning, Mason City, won the battle royal. Joe Kelly refereed all bouts. Gordon "Coraique" Stewart of Dows again stole the show on the American Legion drum corps boxing program at the armory Thursday evening when he met an able opponent in Young Casey of Waterloo. The pair fought one of the greatest teeter-totter, see-saw, tjp-and-down battles witnessed at an American Legion boxing show in many months. The ferver of the battle fairly radiated in the air as the largest crowd in two years packed the armory hall and roared approval in no small measure at these wielders of the padded gloves. M. Nearly 2,000 persons witnessed Stewart's attack on Casey as he floored the Waterloo acrobat 16 times in 6 rounds and went down himself for no less than 7 times, according to the official "box score'' of the bout. The east, the south and the west may be in the doldrums ab far as boxing is concerned but Mason City was on the up and up Thursday night and, with the exception of the bout cut short by the technical knockout, the crowd witnessed a card that called for no more than a mere whimper of a boo. Crowd Marvels at Bout. As the Dows tornado stepped to the center of -the ring for another razing of the manhood set before him, he appeared the better of the two. He was the better, but the crowd marveled at the manner in which Young Casey stayed with him. Stewart won the first, fourth and sixth rounds and drew the third and fifth but for a. one-round mail. Casey showed the Dows boy more tricks than he can learn in a life time. Stewart had the Elackhawk county boxer down 6 limes in the second round but half the time he was down he was on his hands and feet something after the pose of FelU the Cat in the most unique guard position ever seen here. The Dows reaper even went so far as to use a "kick in the pants" punch, qult.e unintentional, when he had the Wa- terlo boy over the ropes in the initial round and other incidents mado the bout enjoyable for those who have a sense of humor. By the third round of the bout, the official storekeeper was groaning under the pressure of what would determine the outcome of the fight. A spendid impersonation ot "Pa Stribling" was encouraging his Waterlo protege; Referee Kelly manag-cci to slip in one count as one of the boys went down in the round but he had to hurry to do it and the crowd was wild with approval. For four rounds the bout was "great stuff." Then the pair had to slow up the pace in order to finish the 6 round schedule 'with their heads up. Casey used a right upper to the head for his most effective punch while Stewart used anything he happened to have in stock. And it's been a long time since he's taken inventory. The pair finished slow but they sowed their -wild oats early. than the others and Hampton gained a slight edge as he pushed Anderson to the ropes and slugged freely in short spasms. But the Charles City carnival Icing stayed on. Anderson made his greatest showing in the fourth when he waded in with a right to Hampton's head and pounded in a few short jabs to take the round with a good margin This was the only stanza he took, the nearest other being the opening round iu which he drew. Hampton worked on Anderson's mid-section thruout the round while Anderson tried for and connected with Hamp ton's head and jaw several times Hampton's rushes in the fifth and sixth rounds were too great for the "tuff"-one. Tho he tried to avoid the attack by shifting hig style of defense and attack, Anderson was completely overcome. Hampton bent his heacl low and plowed in with left and right hooks to the body with an occasional swing at the head for a chance knockout. HAMPTON-ANDERSON Don Hampton of Mason City out- pointed "Tuffy" Anderson, Charles Citl, in the main event of the carrl with a final round rally that took Anderson off his feet. For live rounds the pair fought with no great advantage to either one with the exception that Hampton w wearing his opponent down with body punches that left the Charles City, battler without reserved strength when the Mason City tiger finally opened the attack. For the initial stanza the two did little more than play around and exchange a few taps to the head. Hampton concentrated his attack on the midsection. The second round opened with a great deal of stalling. There was plenty of footwortt but little punching, and tho two were so cautious It was distasteful to the onlookers. Anderson opened an attack near the close of tho round but Hampton retaliated in great style. The third round was much faster RATES AS NUMBER ONE LEHR-MUSSELMAN Kid Lehr of Waterloo, the boy of pirate trunks fame, easily out- pointed Glen Musselman of Fort Dodge in the 6 round go in the semi-final position of the card. Lehr took the second, fourth, fifth' and sixth rounds and drew the first and second. Tho the Kid is small, he packs a powerful punch, delivered from no one knows where. The Kid opened his bout In the same style in which he defeated Stewart on the last card. Musselman was cool, however, in the opening round and was able to clip a pair of smart punches lo Lehr's face for a draw. A left to Musselman's head in the second round set him down for no count but aroused a good exchange of blows at the close of the round. Musselman slid thru the ropes early in the third round and Lehr spanked him for It. Lehr placed a couple of socks to Musselman's heart and sent him flying across the ring as he tried to duck one of the Waterloo battler's punches. Musselman played the ropes lo get the drive in his punch but even the ropes aided him little. He was missing repeatedly In the fifth round and Lehr floored him with a right to the face but the Dodger took no count. The pair wrestled into the final round with Lehr bringing- forth his grin of victory again and taking the part of the aggressor. Ernie North challenged Glenn Musselman for a bout and Harry Smith of Charles City challenged the winner of this go.

TEBBEN-FRITZ Vsllic Kline of Grafton outpoint- ed Kid Mclnroy of Shell Rock by taking three rounds of the four round preliminary by a fairly wide margin. The Kid took the second round with a shifty attack that puzzled the Grafton glove wielder. A knockdown for a count of 9 at the start of the bout and another In the third round gave the victory to Kline. The blond boxer from Shell Rock put tip a great figrht with a double-fisted attack from either arm that made him dangerous. He sent his blows from the bip and carried practically no guard. PHILLIPS-BAKER Whitey Baker came up from Newton to substitute for Leonard Johnson of Forest City In a 6 round bout with Clarence Phillips of Algonn. Johnson was out with influenza and Baker was out with a technical kayo chalked against him after he met the Kossuth county whirlwind. A left to the heart set Baker on the floor early In tho bout but he took no count. A right and left to the head floored him for two counts and he was up again. Another right and left to the head put him out on his feet and Referee Kelly slopped the bout. Approximately I minute and 15 seconds was the length of the go. Turgon Tebbcn of Kanawha rallied after a bad first round to shade George Fritz of Fort Dodge by out- boxing the mauler. Tebben fell to his knee at the opening of the bout but once down stayed for the count of S while he appeared to be turning over the situation in his mind. His comeback started with the next round and tho "giraffe's" long arms worked incessantly on the Lough one. He punched Fritz off his feet early in the second with a powerful right to the head but the Dodger caught himself before he fell. The third round was slow with Fritz measuring his man. Tebben picked up his opponent like a sack of flour in the final round and punched the Fort Dodge mauler at will. KLINE-McINROY OTHER PRELIMS "Wild Cat" Thompson of Mason City drew four rounds with Ralph Johnson of Albert Lea in a bout in which Thompson took the lead at the start with clever and fast boxing but tired before the go was finished. Johnson was not as clever but wielded a harder punch. The pair drew two rounds apiece. Lee Jones, Mason City, shaded Kiel Weaver, Cartersvllle, in a three round preliminary in which the Kiel appeared better the longer he went. Weaver is a souEhpaw and hard to meet once he is started. In the final round he was tough opposition for the Mason City boxer. Jones fought thru the second round in rough style and floored the Kid for 2 counts in the best stanza of the bout. Billy Banning of Mason City won the battle royal that started the show. Five Negroes entered the ring and Banning and Roy Bates, also of Mason City, were the last to stand up. They fought two rounds to decide the winner. A baste trouble with unemployment insurance is the fact that too many persons prefer Insurance to work. Haver hill Evening Gazette.
