Thia agaregation of footballera has made a great showing in Franco and England. Do you know any of the boys? JOHN L. SULLIVAN Al 59 FINDS HE HAS JUST STARTED TO LIVE Former Champ of Heavies Enjoying Life on a Farm-Beats Demon Rum If iF all the champions who have ; I ruled in the ring there is I I none who has enjoyed more 1 ' popularity than John L. Sullivan. In the eigb'Ues and early nineties was the idol of all, from the little newsboy to the staid I business man. There is a saying in sport that a man's popularity dies when he retires from active participationthat he is soon forgotten. It is not so w ;th John L. Wherever he goes he Is still hailed as one of the greatest of fighters of all erne. On October 15 he passed his tt ft y -ninth birthday, and ho stands forth as a living monument of what athletics will do for a man. Although it has been twenty-one years since he engaged in a boxing fut, he is still spry on his feet and has more energy than many men who are much younger. And this In spite of the fact tb'at John L. for a long time was a guy liver. For long be basked in the dazzling glow of the white lights and absorbed more than his share of the (lemon rum. Hut all that is passed. The veteran heavyweight champion has turned over a new bnf. He is lined up against strong drink. He Is fighting John Barleycorn, and his friends declare that he Is winning on points, with u good chance, to score a knockout. Lecturer and Farmer Just at present Sullivan is living on his farm at Abington, Mass. He's living the simple but real life with his chickens and dogs and vegetables. Hut every once in a while John goes on a lecturing tour, lecturing on the evils of drink. He says that before 1D20 he hopes to have a half million dollars, und then he will retire to his farm for all time to live in ease. "And I'm some farmer." said Sullivan. "I neier knew there was so much to barn about farming until I started to study it, and I still have a lot to learn about it. Hut I tell you I'm rapidly developing the kind of a punch that will knock out this high cost of living guy. And I'm fi-titlng hard to knock out this John Barleycorn, too. Demon Rum No Good "The demon rum is no good. I battled with him for a long time, but I broke away from him before he scored a knockout oyer me. I otly FAMOUS B1XING ! REFEREE IS DEAD P HITJC NEW YORK, Pec. 3 Charley White, aged r 2, widely known boxing referee, died ut his home here i last night of a complication of di- I seases. White Is one of the veterans of the referee end of the boxing game and for years has been called upon to officiate champ onsblp and near championship tights. He is credited with being one of the squarest I men who ever stopped Into t!:- ring. Among the prominent fights in which White officiated as referee were: Jeff rics-Corbett. Fitzslmnions-Sharkev at Coney Island; Fitzs m- tnons-Ituhlln, Maher-Ruhlin, Wal-rott-Smlth, Walcott-West. Walcott-Creedon.

' There hr.s been much talk as to who should and who snould not be on j the team. We'll see what the i score sheets record, and they say hg-I ureg never lie. "Issy" Is busy trying to puzzle out which will be left otT the team, Hill lllarkness. Walter Poyle or "Tony 1 Suarez. He thinks Uoyie should ho a ii.-.lure. An exchange says rnssllng will succeed boxing in New York. And they've cut out tree lunches in New York. Hy the way, Tom lirownlee is an Irishman. We apologize, Tom. It is reported that Harry Scott had I I ' wish that 1 had broken away from him years before I dul. I would be ! worth a lot of money today if I had. 1 I'd be worth so much that i wouldn't i have to worry any more. Hut since ; finding myself I um rapidly building j up the old bankroll again. 1 am get-: ting back some of the money that I . put in'.o circulation over l ars and in I the gilded cues. 1 used to think that I would die if I couldn't bnsK in tti glare of the bright lights, but I have I found out differently. I wouldn't care j if I never saw a bright light again. I "It cost me a lot of money to trav-i el th pace I used to travel, and I am ' in a pos.tlon to tell the world that ; there's' nothing in it. I am in a po-, sitioti to talk from experience. I am not talking about something about which I know nothing. When I de-; cry the so-called gay life I am speak-,' ing as one who has been through it. Why. Miy, the pay lite Is out here in l he country, where you can breathe the good air. where the sun seems to shine brighter out among tb'c chickens, r.glit close to nature. This is the life lor me, and it's the only life 1 crave." I Like a 2-Year-Old i ! John doesn't act his age, nor rices he look it. His hair is white and his I big mustache is gray, t ut he- is as i b,g its ever and outwardly appears I to be Just us robust and siron,;. And 1 he says he Ik Is younger than ever, i "'Setting old?" said John. "Not me. I'm getting youm;. I feel, more fit i j riht now than 1 did when 1 boxed I I that three-round exhibition against 1 Tom Sharkey in New York 'way ' back in 'H6. If I had felt as good ' then as I do today 1 wouldn't bay el retired from the ring. I'm tlfty-nine, I j but 1 feel as chipper as a kid." Ho says that he is in bed every I night before ten o'clock and up with I the chickens in the morning. "That's ' what keeps me feeling eo fit," went i I on John. "Feel that m iscle." He tightened the biceps 'of his; right arm. And It is some muscle, i "That arm is just as good today as when 1 ocm Paddy it) an at Missis-; aippi City in 1 and w on the chain- j pionsliip. I don't notice any change i in it, and 1 don't beiieve there is any change in it." I Would Surprise Old-Timera j If com" of tbe old-timers who used to travel in Sullivan's wake through the (Jay White Way could come back from across the Great Pivide thvy would scarcely believe that the Sul- . llvan of today, whose strongest drink is Ice-cream soda, Is the same who was wont to stand at a bar and invite all present to drink with him. It. is hard to imagine that this same Sullivan spent a- fortune seeking what Ire thought was pleasure. Now John L. finds his greatest pleasure out In the open, feeding his chickens, or tramping around the countryside with his dogs or lulling on the porch of his iKune gazing for hours at a time at the sun dancing Irotn out a clear sky. That's John L. of today. How (iiflerent from the John U of yesterday! lie's found that it's possible to live the simple life und still be popular. If he could only have found that out when he was at the zenith of his career! If he could only have mndo the discovery before he lost the ! heavyweight championship to Jiml Corbett on September 7, 1S32, at ' New Oilenns.

I G-MAN HOCKEY FOR ONTARIO: 10 BOOST JUNIORS O.H.A. Spend3 $5,000 on Victory tonds Sheriff Claxton President TORONTO, Pec. 3 The annual meeting of the Ontario Hockey association, which took place here l Saturday, was dominated by a war- time spirit. Delegates were present I from all purls of the province. ; It was decided to adept six-man hockey, as played in the professional league. Formerly-the O.H.A. was opposed to the abbreviated style, but they were all of one mind thai the system introduced by the National Hockey association was infinitely superior in every way. The same penalty system will be continued, j The amendment passed without cp- ! position. j As a war-time measure it was agreed that players residing in a town where there is no O.H.A. team may play in the nearest town or village with a population of less than 6.000. I Sheriff Claxtnn was unanimously j elected president in. seccession lo Capt. Jim Sutherland, who Is over- j seas, and the new executive mem- : hers chosen were: frank Pissette, ' Toronto; U H. Dawson. Sarnla; Frank Hyde, Woodstock; and W. A. Fry, Dunnville. A cash balance of J5.973.50 was re- , ported. Five thousand of this was applied to the Victory Loan. Tlwre will be. plenty of material for tho Intermediate and junior pinups, nut it is doubtful If there : will be a senior leagup. Only the ! Toronto I'entais were prepared to euter It. . Teg Golfer I Wins in U.S. W innipeg was represented In aolf tournament held In California re-; r. ntly by Chas. K. Pinglo. The 'Pea-- ger won first honors In a competition for the Sid Chaplin cup which was 'Hinged on the m.nlolpal links. Los Angeles. Seventy -live contested the event. Dingle made the round in SO, which was the eighth lowest score registered. He had a handicap which gave him a margin of four points over his closest rival. TOMMY WRIGHT ANXIOUS TO PLAY m AMATEURS Noted Billiard Star Asserts He's an Amateur Would Help Red Cross Tommy Wright, the well-known English billiard expert, thinks he has a grievance against tho local amateur Illlliard association. He complains that he applied for permission to play on one of the league teams and was refused. He considers that because he has not been employed In the billiard business for three years that lie Is entitled to play as an amateur. No. Tommy, you are wrong. You are still a "pro." and you should apply for reinstatement. Make your application to the Milliards Control cluh, througrh the local association, und there Is no doubt It will be granted. Wright. In his communication, offers to play any amateur In Winnipeg MO or 700 point match game, but specifics crystalate balls. There is no rule that prevents an amateur and professional meeting In a match, provided It Is not for n money stake, and undoubtedly the local association would sanction such a game, especially If, as Wright suggests, it were played for the benefit of some patriotic fund. Wright's Letter Here Is "Wright's letter: Tribune Sports Kditor: "I have bern watching the reports of the dif ferent Knglish billiard matches that have taken place Just V'ely In Winnipeg. I applied to the secretary of the Amateur Kngllsh Milliard league to compete in one of the teams al-rendv playing in the league, but was, refused. "As the games are being plaved under the Hilllard Control club rules. I think I am In order hy offering to play any amateur Knglish bllllaid player in the city. 1 am not a prri-fesslonal, us I have, not worked In any billiard room 'for over three years. "I will rlay a match with any of these gentlemen, providing they play with crystalate balls. The game to he 600 or 700 points. If agreeable a collection will bo taken in aid of the Red Cross fund. j "I might say that I' am the onlv I man In Winnipeg that heat Arnold Ibbotson, tlie ehamp'on of Canada, but that was about four venrs ago.

(51) i , Brilliant Montreal Player Suf-I fers Second Fracture to Limb . : OTTAWA, Dec. S It is r.ot likely that hockey fans will ever sec Sprague Cleghorn on skates again. Tho latest accident to the great hockey player, when ho broke his ' right leg has likely put him on tho '; shelf for good. There might have been a chance : for him to come back If this was his j first fracture, unfortunately lie broke his left leg pearly two years ao. ' . This left his leg weak and with both ' limbs affected H Is hardly likely that ! he will ever play pro hockey again. i The broken leg In hockey is something like the kayo .In the prize ring. The victim seldom comes back. j Sprague Cleghorn proved an excep- Hon, however, last year, but his case was rotable. (in January 20, 1SUS, at Montreal. In tho geme between Wanders and Tarontos, Randall and Cleghorn came together near the goal and as both were travelling at a good rate of speed their momentum 'arrlod them Into the boards at the end of j the rink, where Sprague put up his j leg to ward off the Impending crash i and his ankle snapped. He was out j of the game for the rest of the winter ' and after ten months' rest attempted i to come back. , ! His early form was promising and ! once In a while he turned In tt good enough game to warrant recognition. ' Hut he never approached the grand i ' form that made him the superman 1 , ho was In 1M5 and 1916. Fortunately, the percentage of fractured skin bones in the Canadian national gamo Is much lighter than the K.O. aver- ' aire In. tho padded rlnx, otherwise hoekeylsts would be ft a premium. Hruce Stimrt practically ended his hockey career with a broken collar- I bone In 1910. The late Marty Walsh j Is an example in the opposite direction. The first year he became a pro- i fesslonal and long before he acquired j his great fame, he broke hlg leg Rt j the Soo. He recovered and played the next season. Three years later he played his best hockey, but thf matured hockey player and Sprague ('leghorn Is a young man as hockey players go ne' er regains his beat form after a serious accident. I 1 !
