Jan. 3. Bartley Mad - rlifij the rugged - West Side battler, has Rilmple proposition before him. In meeting Harry Wills, the end of this month in Newark, all he has to do is to stick five or six rounds to enhance h("renntatlon. And in so doing, he will put a serious crimp In Harry's fair: reoute. JShould he go the twelve rounds, Witts would be done for as a cham nfonshlo contender and Madden's stock wjjMjd go way above par. But there is "Utile chance that Wills will strike ' t::nag. lit would seem that Wills has noth Ingf'to fear from Madden so .far as punishment Is concerned. In fact the whale Issue revolves around the - ne gro's ability to Jar the Irishman to tn point of coma, or condition appro limiting thereto. ?Of all outraged managers, Nick Kline is the most so of any the writer htl. seen since Harry Gre - b discharged GeOTge Engel. Ermino Spalla wires Mlok for $500 for expenses from Italy to the united States. Kline sends the dough, whereupon Spalla uses It for transportation of Buenos Aires where he will meet Pirpo. Crafty guy, this Spalla. No wonder Kline cabled the KInig of Italy asking him to have Spalla garroted, or whatever they do !o bad men In Italy. A despatch from Rome says that after Spalla meets Flrpo he will come to' the United States. The message does not attempt to predict how the Italian will come. Probably feet first. When he was In this country, Ermino iras very careful what fighters he met. Just what Induced him to overcome this caution and consent to a bout with the pile - driving Firpo Is a dif - loult question to answer. Looks as If Lew Tendler Is through. Taking no credit from Nate Goldman. It stands to reason he would hardly have given the Philadelphia southpaw the beating he did, had Lew been the lad. he used to be. Well, Tendler saved' his money and even had hi not. the.Leorard - Tendler show at the Polo grounds last Summer yielded him enough to make him attractive to bond lalfsmen. .'Jack Kearns wants Dempsejr to appear In three battles in this vicinity on the three big holidays, namely, Decoration Day, July 4 and Labor Day. Reasons of patriotism, of course, have dictated this program. ELiW'S FPD GOALS St WIN ftHMK FOR HAWLEY ";EELYVILT.E, Jan. 3. Slawlor Went within striking distance of the league leading Honesdale club when they took a stirring Inter - County league game from Seelyvllle by the clppe score of 23 to 21. The margin of two points at the close of the game tsevldence enough of the great fight waged between the two clubs. ,:Jt meant much to Hawley to win last night's game, as a loss for them would throw them out of the running for top honors. Seelyvllle had already registered two wins In' as many starts over Hawley and it was a determined crowd that, Andy Gilpin brought Into Seelyvllle to fight for the glory of Hawley. At the end of the first half Hawley was trailing by a 15 to 10 count and things looked anything but promising for the visitors. In the second period, Seelyvllle was leading by the soont of 21 to IS with but three minutes to play, but then Dick Elmore, who has been showing up In great ityle during the pant two weeks, got Ming and tosed in two goals which ahanged the comDlexlon of affairs and jut Hawley In the lead. Seelyville's bright star was George &vy, who tallied four times from the field and kept the home club In the front during the greater part of the game by his consistent scoring and superior playing over Tom Lloyd, who Jumped center for Hawley. Andy (jHlpin celebrated his return to the Hawley lineup and contributed five points to the Hawley cause. Lineups: HAWHST RBbLTTILLE fb.fr.tps! fb.fg.tp fane, fa. . .Mdrphy. fd.

Philadelphia Nationals Prob ably Will Open Against Giants at New York By JOHN B. rOSTEB. Coprrleht, 1924, By The Sernnton Bennhllcan. NJSW lUKtt, Jan. - a. me i.ui - .iku Americans and the New York Nationals will play their way home together from the Florida training camps. The Pittsburghs and the Chicago Nationals will travel part of the long trail from California together, and the Cincin - natis and Detroit have paired oft for exhibition games on the way north. Cleveland will follow the policy of 1923, which worked out admirably, and go from Florida to New Orleans, and thence north to open the season wherever scheduled, perhaps at Chicago. The Yankees and Brooklyn will hook up in some exhibition games on the way home. Brown Play Minors. The St. Louts Browns will play most of their exhibition games In the southwest, probably with minor league clubs. The St. Louis Nationals will play exhibition games with the Philadelphia Athletics, in all probability, although the teams will not undertake a tour. The Boston Americans will play games up from Texas, stopping at Dallas, Fort Worth and Indianapolis whence they will jump home. The Boston Nationals will work north from Florida on the east Atlantic coast, and probably play with Washington on the way home. Cincinnati has given up the idea of playing so many spring games, which is wasted energy with an old and seasoned team, and will remain In Florida longer than In 1923, which is another sensible move. (Hants Open At Home. The Philadelphia Nationals will work their way north by easy stages, and may open the season at New York with the Giants, who will start the race at home. Brooklyn, perhaps, will open In Boston. Almost all the major league teams will send a part of their players to the training camps by the end of February.' The Cincinnati will have their pitchers on the ground In Orlando, Fla., by the last week In February, giving them a good conditioning in hope of annexing the championship. Besides the Cuban star, Luque, the Reds have taken on Sheehan, of St. Paul, who won thirty - one games and lost only nine last year. If Sheehan could do that well for Cincinnati, and Luque could come back with a record like his 1923 one, Cincinnati should have little trouble winning the Na tional league flag, for tne other pitch ers would need to win only about forty games all season. FOR THE GAE'S SAKE Copvrlclit, 1954. By The Scranton Republican. NEW YORK, Jan. 3. The writer hears that Pfann. the great Cornell bank will head for West Point this sum mer and be available for play as a member of the Army team next fall. It looks as If the Army has made a great catch and will have Just the man to fill the position left vacant by Smythe, whose generalship, by the way, was not always above question. When the Army finds a methods of blending her stars recruited from civ ilians into a harmonious and efficient whole, she ought to dominate the gridiron, since no other seat of learning is in the pofltlon she occupies with respect to obtaining material for grid iron otitnts.. , Punched and ribbed clubs. Projects of assisting England !r. financing visits of British amateur stars to these shores. , These and many other interesting subjects are to be brought up at the annual meeting of the United States Oolf association which begins at the Hotel Astor In this city tomorrow. Are we to keen our game In accord with the St.' Andrews scheme, or shall .there be developed a game peculiarly American? National Tiride sne?isti the latter, but an Issue far more Important, n.'inielv. the fnr1htrrknn nt International friendships, which bear a significance outreaehing mere sport. resmes in tne former. As to the - trick Irons to which S. Andrews objects,, one point may be regarded as well taken. It relates to the genius of the factory m - oduelnir a club or ball that will destroy some important ann interesting factor of the port, such, for Instance, as n - rroacliintr the green and all th devi ous snots therein employed. Such a thing might happem of course, and the British, feeling that such a change would not come overnight, but rather through such gradual processes as the r;DDing ana punching of Irons and the like, are Inclined to insure against ucn a cajamny Dy squashing the in novations as they appear. . Philosophy built along these lines Is not easy to assail. But at the ame time no pood end will be served by a policy of silent drifting on the pari or tlie U. B. A. G. A.

In the course of conversation we lit upon training methods and their best results. One of the boys mentioned handball, which made Corbett step on the gas. "Handball is a great game and a fine thing for conditioning a man to get Up his speed while training," drawled Jim, as he lit a big pill and made himself more comfortable In his cross seat. "I was training to fight Charlie Mitchell, the Englishman down In Florida once and by the way, this story has never been told before. I had been training strenuously for weeks, and was no doubt right on edge.

My manager, Billy Delaney, the old trainer who later handled Jeffries, and the whole camp retinue sat around watching me. We were playing an awful fast game and about half way through I noticed Jim was perspiring freely while I was Just as dry as a bone. I walked off the court without saying a word, and they all stood open mouthed, wondering what the trouble was.

By The Biranton Republican. NEW YORK, Jan. 3. The athletic - pot is boiling today as it has never boiled before In the Winter session. The new National Amateur Athletic Federation, in its session at Washing ton, adopted a resolution favoring the removal of all foreign control from the selection of athletes to represent the United States at the Olympic games. President Breckenrldee. who was re elected, stated that , the object of the federation was "to stimulate, not .o repress." Well, there is going to b plenty of "stimulation" unless all signs fall. ' And four presidents ar likely to be in the ring before it Is all over, thanks to the Paddock case and other matters of Jurisdiction. President Thompson of the Olympic committee Is for peace, but President Prout, of the A. A.

And, as you know, I stopped Charlie In three rounds. "Not one of the boys had notices that I wasn't perspiring that day, and you may bet that I told them a few before I got. through. Yes, training is a good thing for anyone, but you want to be sure to know how to train," concluded Corbett.. "Why, if I hadn't noticed that little Incident, I'd have been over - trained and all dried out. 1 wouldn't have been able to go very far In the fight. It's fust like driving your car with no oil."
