llis hist series there will be rolled to-morrolv night with Whitehead. The match gtjmo between Champion Smith and YtKirlteis, which starts lo-night on the Tuxedo alleys, in Newark, is likely to result in general exodus towards Jersey this afternoon. As a proof of what a crowd is exis'cted to witness the games, the fact that the geberal admission is 25 cents, with seats costing 50 and 75 cents extra, is sulli-eient. The series is expected to lie a ay better tlmn the one between these two men last season. Voorheis is in better trim, und Smith, ns the result of his being hailed as champion, rolls with confidence that puts twenty pin on Ills game.

It is not at all Bkely after all. that there will be so much betting on the result. The match looks too much like an exhibition to get the crowds worked up to a high pitch. The men are sure to howl for all that is ill the game, for victory menus a whole lot to both of them. Billy Flanagan, of the Tribune team, is matched to meet Smith in a series best eleven in twenty-one games.

The first ten games of the match will, be rolled on the Grand Central alleys at 4 oclock Wednesday moruing. The remaining games are to be played on Me-Lntighlins alleys, where Flanagan has decisively beaten Smith, Erdntan and Hartley.

Brooklyn Elks Are Not Making the Showing That Was Expected Jersey City Leads. Although the Brooklyn quintet of howlers are conceded to have the strongest line-up in the P. O. Elks League, the present standing of the team shows that will have to hustle to keep from being among the tail enders when the schedule is finished. Jersey City at present leads.

Billv Cordes is the onlv Brooklyn Elk who is making good in the average column. He now stands second on the list, Cnrydon. of the Jersey five, being first.

By the same token the State of Nevada is the golden meeca for the men of the mitts. Not so many years ago two bruisers of acknowledged cleverness would get together and maul one another for the edification of a bunch of boxing enthusiasts for, purses in the neighborhood of $1,000. And the fighters of those days thought they were paid well for their services. Things are different now. Noah Brusso, better known to the sporting fraternity as Tommy Burns, received $1.25 and carfare for his initial battle.

His recent mixup with Philadelphia Jack OBrien in Los Angeles netted him exactly $10,000. Kid Herman, the Ghetto champion, fought his first fight in Chicago and received about four bits for his portion of the work in a bout in which he proved the victor. Battling Nelson earned 82.50 for his first appearance in (hieago and was presented with $18,000 as his hit of the battle with Joe Cans at GoldheW. Gans received $12. last for his Nel- son fight and (17.000 for slowing away Kid Herman, a total of $29,000 for forty-nine rounds of milling.

Gans had. tip to the time of the golden age in Nevada, been fighting for more than ten years. During that time lie mnv have earned a trifle more thRn $29,000 all told, hut bettor portion of ttpnils.

As the result of all the criticism heaped upon the Greater New York Individual Tournament, President William Cordes announces that he will not serve as the chief executive of the tournament next season. Cordes also says that he is in favor of permitting a committee of newspapermen select the contestants.

He takes exception to the letter of George Bell and the comments thereon in last Saturdays Citizen. He says the tournament has class, but admits tljere are not eighteen bowlers "of championship calibre. Again Cordes pays thnt it is hard to get contestants willing to put up the $25 entrance fee. He admits that in a championship tournament it would be better for all concerned if there was no entrance fee. Bert Allen und Champion Jimmy Smith both say that at the very most I A.

II. 1HN SKATERS National Skating Association Gets a Warning. After a conference 6f the officials of the Amateur Athletic Union held yesterday it was decided to inform the National Skating Association that unless they at once rescinded the resolution adopted at their meeting held on Jan. IT the Amateur Athletic Union would cancel alliance wilh the National Skating Association and assume all control over amateur skaters and skating in the United Stntcs. Following is a copy of a letter sent yesterday to Secretary Francis M.

Clarke: In view of the action of the National Skating Association at its meeting held on Jan. 17, where you, in effect, decided by a vote not to recognize the alliance of the Amateur Athletic Union with the Canadian Am a tent Athletic -Union, as well as the alliance with the Amateur Athletic Union with your own association, I beg to advise you that unless yon rescind at once yonr resolution passed at that meeting, as president of the Amateur Athletic Union, I will order a telegraph vote cancelling at once the alliance with the National Skating Association of America, and the Amateur Athletic Union of the United States will assume control of amateur skating in the United States. A notice will be Bent to every skater in the United States to the effect that should he compete in violation of our alliance with the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union at the skating tournament to be held at Montreal on Feb. 2 the Amateur Athletic Union of the United States and the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union will disqualify each skater who takes part in this unsanctioned meeting. Very truly.

JAMfiiS E. SULLIVAN, President." Chairman John J. Dixon, of the National Registration Committee, has instructed each member of the National Registratiorff Committee of the Amateur Athletic Uitiou to notify all skaters in each district of he Amateur Athletic Union that should they compete in Montreal on Feb. 2 they will be disqualified by the Amateur Athletic Union and the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union. President Sullivan said yesterday: The attitude of the National Skating Association amused me very much.

We have tried to build up that Association by keeping our bands off skating. The Amateur Athletic Union never wanted to control skating, bnt when we have an alliance we are going to back up the association with which we have the alliance. Thats just what we have alliances for, and if the National Skating Association does not rescind that resolution at once the Amateur Athletic Union will tnko control of skating and the National Skating, Association will cease to exist. In other words, if they want to be good hoya and continue their alliance with the Amateur Athletic Union they have a chance to hold another meeting and rescind their resolution. Otherwise, they will lose control of amateur skating.

Its something that's up to them to decide. Its at just such times as this that the Amateur Athletic Union wants to show that it stands for clean, honest sport, and we will not tolerate competition between professionals and amateurs in any branch of sport over which we have jurisdiction or of which we approve. If thata the kind of competition the National Skating Association wants the sooner they lose control of skating the better it will be for all concerned." BASKETBALL FOR $1,000. Crescents, of Paterson, Are Willing to Play the Great Team of CAT'S KILL, N. Jan.

this winter there has been a contention by the Crescent basketball team of rater-son, N. and the Gioversville (N. team that each was the champion basketball team of the world. About two weeks ago the Crescents were defeated In two games by Gioversville, and the teams have been doing considerable talking. On Saturday night the Crescents plnjed the' a tali ill team here, and won by 2i to 12.

Before the game begin Captain Paul-' paugh of Catskill announced he had been authorized by Gioversville to say that that team would come to Catskill any time and play the Croecents for fun or money. 1 Captain Downey, manager of the Crescents, accepted the challenge, and stated that they would play Gioversville within two weeks for (1,000 or any part of that aasonat ting any results to show for them. team who know baseball as no other The illustration applies to the White men in the world.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 21. Jingle, jingle, go the thousands of plunks that await the man who hooks up with Jim Jeffries.

The merry sound draw's a new challenger each week. O'Brien, Burns, Johnson, Hackenschmidt, Moir, and Squires have had their day, and now Mexican Pete" Everett, of Oklahoma, is to the front. He wants a fight with Jeff, so he says, and -wants it badly. To hack up. his claim, he points to his fight with Jeff in 1898.

Everett claims he had the best of that go. although the records give Jeff the decision. He also has quite a list of knockouts. 1 Iu making public his challenge, Everett says: I am after Jeffries scalp, aqd I am ready to agree to almost any terms to get a fight with him. I fonght him nine ygars ago in San Francisco.

Tht-sports that night were offering odds that 1 would not last four rounds. My managers and friends were covering th money. "At the end of the third round I was going easy, and bid fair to take Jeff into camp. The sports saw this and had the polios stop the bout in the fourth to save their money. I am 30 years old, and weigh 185.

I was never in such good cohdition. I fed that the championship of the world hangs in the balance, and that the odda are in. my favor. Mexican Pete expects to get a match with Mike Schreck, at Denver, CoL, within a few weeks, and says his showing there will prove that he is of cham-' pionship caliber. He has wired an acceptance of this match to the manager of the Denver Athletic Everett has a decision over Sharkey in one round.

He claims a knockout, but the records say he won on a foul. He went 20 rounds with Jack Johnson at Victor. Col. He knocked out Denver Ed Martin to three rounds; Billy Woods, champion of Utah, in nine ronnds; Ike Hayes, champion of Montana, eight rounds: Ed Cuff, three rounds; Mike Sullivan, champion of New Mexico, two rounds; Jack Turner, champion of Arizona, three rounds; Oliver Ostendorf, champion of Oklahoma, nine rounds.

Unglaub Has An Idea to Produce Some Swatting.

WILLIAMSPORT, Jan. A. Unglaub, the crack first sacker of the Williamsport Tri-state Club, who was recently awarded to the Boston Am-relcans by the National Commission, has "devised a rule which he says would pro-dime more long hitting in hail games. In order to give the heavy hitter his due advantage over the light hitter Unglaub says the outfielder should be limited to a certain territory. He suggests drawing an arc from one field line to the other at a distance of 80 yards frojji the home plate, using the plate aB a center.

This will give a quarter circle, eveTy point' of which is 80 yards from the home plate. Outfielders are to play on the inside of this circle until after the ball has been hit by a hatter. The batter who can drive the ball 100 yards or more will have an opportunity to get a long hit instead of having the fielders judge his hit and pull it down at a point more than 100 yards from the plate bv a phenomenal catch. Unglaub says that tne fault of the present rules Is that the long hitter has only a slight advantage over the light hitters, because nine times out of ten the fielders will Judge the batters manner of hitting and arrange themselves in the field to suit the occasion. This are will give the heavy hitter an opportunity to drive the bail far into the deep field and get a clear hit for several bases.

CHICAGO, Jan. 21. It has always been said that a team that hits makes runs. And it has further been said that a team that makes runs wins games. But we find according to the official figures of the American League, that Cleveland made 1,513 hits during the season, while the Sox conld hammer out but 1,130.

Wc also find that the Naps made 663 runs during the year, while Comis-keys team scored by 570, almost TOO less. But in looking at the games woe we find that Lajoies tribe conld mnrk up but 89 victories, while the Sox won 93. It is not the hits or the runs that win the pennant. It is the games. Just where the power of the Sox lies to win games with few hits and runs has puzzled the fans of the entire country.

But the main reason lies in the fact that they never waste their energy. Some families can live and live well on an income of $1,000 a year. Others go into bankruptcy on $2,000. The first family makes every dollar count, while the second lets many slip away without get CRESCENTS TIED FOR FIRST. Thursdays Game Between, Cham-lens and St.
