Holding- was Nebraska's chief offense, a violation of the rules which set the Huskers back a full 60 yards. Quarterback Sloss and Left Halfback Aldrich/were the only consistent ground gainers for the Cyclones, while Cook and Caley, the midgets ol i the Nebraska back field, were responsible for most of the material advances reeled off by the Cornhusker clan. Caley's sprint for 17 yards yards around Packer, the famous Ames end, was the most spectacular feature of the final period of play, the WEST POINT. N. V.. Nov.

Three times the A r m y scored touchdowns, nnd each time It was Vidal who went over after long forward p.'isses fiom Oliphant. In addition. Vidal drop kicked a beautiful field foal from the 43- yard line, nnd Oliphant lifted two over from placement from the IS-yard line. Cofall and Bergman did the heavy work for Notre Dame. Cofall equalled Vldal's feat, sending a drop kick soaring from the 45-yard line. Bergman crashed through the westerners' only touchdown and Cofall kicked the goal.

In the history of bllllard.i there never were two morn closely matched rlvalni t h a n the late Jacob Schaefer and George Slosson.

One of the most notable finishes mide by Jake against George accurred in tho second world's championship at the three-ball game. The main prize was an emblem and SI.000.

He Is stronger and can hit harder. He Is a better Inflghter t h a n Michael, besides being: good at long ranRe. In the latter department, however. Olbbons outshines him. The matcn | Is likely to develop into a defensive fight on the part of Gibbons while Dillon can be depended upon to earnestly try for fighting at close quarters.

Dillon naturally ought to rule fnvoritn Schaefer, giving another demonstration of his wonderful nerve, again began to count rapidly. He reached the century mark and continued counting until h« had turned the second century. By this time the huge crowd was In a state of tense excitement.

Angered by Kllbane's Talk. l.ltlle wonder Henny boy i» riled. Can anyone Imagine a f u t u r e lightweight clmmplon being bundled like a toy by a mere featherweight clmmplon? Leonard b u n taken umbrage a t Kllbnne'a remarks, and he means lo make the Clevelander "dwaller t h e m woldH," The only possible wiiy he can arrange for such a clr- ciimstnnce IR to moet Kllbane in ring combnt again--and t h a t IB what Bonny IIIIH avowed to do. If It takes him th* rest of the winter to do It. Keonnrd N ready to acquiesce to any reasonable weight Imposition Kllbun* may dommtd. Leonard, woo Is one of Ihe few legitimate 133 pound llght- wntghtH, will readily consent to do 12J poundH for Kllbano. It la hard to visualize Kllbotie dodging a. meeting at thlfl weigh!, for he took on Leonard nt ISO ponds, and even then ''handled him like a toy." Just nt present no promoter hag ofV- fered to stnga the return bout between Leonard and Kllbano. However. It would prove an Interesting match this tlmo, an Leonard has Improved «om« 600 per cent slnco tho last meeting; while Kll- bann ha* not deteriorated In a single por- eiiillago point. As a matter of fact, he has nlnce shown that ho Is ono ot (he greatest fighters of the generation, judging by tho easy nffinner In which he accomplished the downfall of George Cnaney, the knockout king. The K. O. king was K. O. d. In Just three rounds. A battle between Leonard acid Kllban* would aHo serve to settle, or go a long way toward settling tho moot question of how Ivllbane would fare In a bout with Lightweight Champion Welsh. The uhwersal Idoa appears to bo that Kll- bane would comn oloso to knocking out Welsh, whero ho so disposed. Whether he would may be determined before next spring, an ti Kllbanc-Welnh fight Is be- vond the Incubation stage and negotiations may bo closed even before the Kll- btine-Lconard match Is clinched. Leonard has met Welsh twice In tea round bouts, for an average of EOO. Benny won the first clash by a wide margin, while tho champion ^evened the order In the second meeting-. Leonard rounds--In the fourth round of the first fight--but ho lacked the punch to finish off the title holder. Leonard Has K. O. Punch. Since the second tilt, Leonard has knocked out Ever Hammer. th« hardy Chlcagoan who a few months previous had given Welsh a severe trouncing In twelve rounds. Leonard flattened the bristling blond In twelve rounds, holding the upper hand all the way. So, It 'will ' be seen, comparisons are odious. In his little talk tt western theatre- goers, Kllbane reveals some Interesting facts. After taking hla "fall" out of Leonard, the featherweight king declares that the lesser lights of the division have caused him Infinitely more trouble than the topnotchers. Johnny Dundee, whom many consider as efficient a lightweight as there Is In the world -today, was quite easy for him, Kllbane aay«. Continuing. Jawn declares: "The toughest opponent I ever Mi- countered was Eddie Wallace, a 1JS- pounder from Brooklyn. I met him on two occasions--once In Brooklyn; the other time in Montreal--and In both bouts he made me mlsa repeatedly and jabbed my face as no other fighter ever was able to. He even left a. scar on my cheek, and try as I could I was .unable to make him. stop his annoying tactics." Can ii be that Johnny Is angling for another Wallace bout?
