Words to this affect. were uttered today at the Walnut street headquarters of the Maroon and Gray, follow lngr a telegram from the Lewisburg war chief. The Wllllamsport cage was selected for the contest In preference to Lebanon and Huntingdon courts, which were available. Lewisburg, which was to have met Westfleld, was thrown Into the ell-mination game with Tech? when the northern team withdrew. ' - Elimination frames staged In the three other sections of the State are fast sifting the weaker teams Into the discard pile. In the western section, llniontown tripped Sharpesvllle on Tuesday night and Is considered to have a good chance to represent the division at the tourney. Homestead, Klttannlng and Monnessen are entered In the western section elimination games. Renovo, which Is confident of rep-resenting the central section, disposed or a fast team on Tuesday night when It defeated Orblsonia. Johnstown, has withdrawn, according to reports received here today, leaving Mt. Union, Windber and Houtz-dale to fight It out with Renovo for the central honors. According to the record compiled by the Lewisburg team, Tech (should win Monday night's game by a comfortable margin, as the showing of LEAGUE CHAMPS CLASH TONIGHT GJRJEYSTOCK Baly.

These are the ten tossers that will probably be unleased tonight on the Edison cage, when the first of a three- gams series, to . determine whether the Edison or Camp Curtln circuit has tbe more class,, will be staged. Greystock, pennant-winners In the Camp Curtln wheel by virtue. of-a post-season . victory over the Shop Clerks, is sending the same sensa tional combination'" into the fracas that went through the Uptown cam paign. The Sons of Rest, who ran through all opposition In the Hill wheel, will probably depend upon Its 'veteran tossers In an effort to capture the first battle. ?.,-''..'. The game, Judging from the strength of the two combinations and the sensational tossers working on each, should be one of the best attractions of the season. Both of the contenders has proven their class byj the manner In which the Btrons opposition in their respective leagues were overthrown. - This is especially true of the Greystock Ave, . which -got away to an ordinary start but Won out by handing the three and only defeats hamied to the powerful Shop Clerks. , 1 r. Arthur, from the Camp CuYtin League, will call the fouls in the contest The second, .setto will be .staged next Tuesday night on the Camp Cur-tin floor. v The Y. M. II. A. and the Market . Bquare' tossers will clash in a preliminary game tonight. . HOPPE PREPARES' FOR TOURNAMENT Willie Hoppe, J 8.2 balkllne billiard king, who last night defeated Jake Schaefor, his most dangerous - challenger, by coming out on top of a 1500-polnt block match at New Tork, will not allow his delicate digits to become rusty. Instead, Willie plans to practice assiduously for the tournament next Autumn, when an Imposing array of billiard talent will try to remove his coveted crown. Schaefer, who gained a big lead In Monday night's session, trailed badly tnrougnout tne rest or tne matcn, and finished on the short end of a 1600 to 1341 score. Beginning last evening with a six-point margin, the champion pro ceeded in a calm, businesslike fashion to roll up a commanding lead. One of his opening Innings . netted him 99. Schaefer startled Hoppe and the big crowd, however, by running a speo-tacular 244 after the ancient boy-wonder had pulled away. This placed him within twenty points of Hoppe once more, but Willie methodically pulled away again, rushing out with innings of 55 and 21. - Hoppe by this victory, becomes the permanent owner of the Brunswick-Balke diamond medal. - In the three evenings of play Hoppe averaged -84 4-44, while Schaefer's grand average was -31 8-43.. Both players scored their hfhest single innings last night, the cKvmpion mastering: 186 In the third session, -while Schaefer made his. 244 in the fifth Inning. Contest Forfeited in I Edison Class League Section 9B-7 def eated' Section 9B-3 with a 16 to 1 score In the .first game J if the evening between the-sections n the Section League.

MO METAL CAN Mdeiveave double Crip ft 50c i andub. the former quintet is not as impressive as that of the Maroon and Gray tossers. V Twelve games out of sixteen have been ttvon by .Lewlaburg, Trevorton, JcrsoyV Shore, Lock Haven and Bloomsburg being the only teams to score against it. Jersy Shore administered the only spanking suffered on the Lewisburg floor. The Tech tosBers. however, are not doing any worrying over the game with Lewisburg, but are concentrating' on the impending game with the Blue and White tossers coached by Pat Reagan. The bteelton Invasion is scheduled for tomorrow night on the Chestnut street cage. Tech, at Steelton several weeks ago, scored a win after forty minutes or hectlo battling, the Maroon and Gray tossers winning in the closing moments of play. The game tomorrow night should be a torrid affair, although Tech is favored to annex the heavier score, Stronger teams than Steelton have visited here and returned home with defeats registered on their record sneets. ...... In doping out Tech-Steelton fusses however, it Is always well to remem ber that the old rivals flash their best when they clash. Steelton, de spite, the odds against It. is coming to annex Tech s scalp, ana tne tossers have been drilled hard this week by Reagan to accomplish this result, The victory over , Lebanon last Fri day nisht indicated that the down river Quintet has finally found itself, and the team should play some good basketball here. !Loud Sweater Is Too Much for Cy Walker Cyril Walker Is one of the bst golfers in the eonntry, ana Incidentally he Is the slowest. Jock Hutchlaoa aside from being one of the cracks has by far the keenest aenae of humor. A year ago when Hntehlaon returned from England after com-petlng la the Brltlah open, he brought back with him a flock of sweaters that were so loud they fairly shouted. One of the sweaters was a black and white check about an Inch square. It so happened that the day Hntehlaon wua to follow Walker ia a big tournament be wore hia aweater. As the two were waiting to tee off. Walker, Intending to Joah Hntehlaon about the loud aweater, remarked i "Jack, It looks an If you Intend to play checkers instead of arolf from the appearance of that sweater." "That'a Juat what I decided when I learned I was going to piny back of you. I knew I would have plenty of time, so I donned this aweater to All In with checkers between ahota." That silenced Walker. BRENNAN TO SUE NEW YORK PAPER NEW TORK.. March 15. Big Bill Brennan's , fight with Luis Angelo Firpo probably was the last battle of the left-over veteran -of the white hope era. If he recovers from the concussion of the brain which has placed him In a hospital. It Is likely that' he will not be arjDroved n a p.nn. testant in further battles, even If he should wish to ao on fiirhtlmr. A few weeks ago Brennan, without cnampionsmp , aspirations, was re garaea as one or -tne greatest nnten tlal money' makers in the rinir.

STEIN & COMPANY 'i - ;r- MAKtM , CkSldrta'a HICKORY Cailen' Oocaoo - ; New-Year, Tremaine Next Bantam Champ ion Evans By BILLY EVANS , Carl Tremaine, of Cleveland, Is destined to be the next bantamweight champion of the world. . i ' Tremalne's fight against' . Johnny Curtln at Madison Square Garden re-cehtly, convinced me of that fact' In his decisive defeat of Curtin, a clean knockout, Tremaine removed one of tLe leading contenders, one of the biggest obstacles in his' campaign to get a match with Champion Joe Lynch. Tremaine has come, very fast. He has Improved 100 per cent, during the fiast year as a result of clever handing by his manager, Jimmy Dunn, a past master in the fistic art. In other words. Tremaine has arrived. If Tremaine is able to get a bout with Joe Lynch in 1923 I feel positive that a new champion will be crowned. Tremaine is now at the top of his game. It is hard to figure how he ever can be any better. As a matter of fact, I believe that Tremaine could. take Johnny Kllbane with the weight at 122 ringside. One things 1 do know is that Tremaine Is a far' better man than Criqui. who it Is reported, will shortly meet Kllbane. Tremaine would have no trouble with Criqui. Tremaine has everything a champion must have, including that one very great asset, punching power. - How the little fellow can hit! I think he is the hardest puncher In the country for his weight, and I do not except the great Jack Dempsejr when I make such a statement. Tremaine has the old engllsh to his punch. When he hits you it bores in. Let me explain what I mean by engllsh on his- punches. I will use a baseball illustration to make my point clear. In baseball I have seen many pitchers with equal speed, yet there was a wide difference In the matter of their effectiveness. In baseball it Is the pitcher with the "zip," the hop on his fast ball who is most effective. Some pitchers have good speed, but to use the parlance of the ball Held, their fast one Is as straight as a string, others, have the hop on the fast one that makes their delivery hard to hit. The hop on the fast one is acquired by the method of delivering the ball, the engllsh on a punch is acquired In Sport Squibs Boxing In this State will be placed on a higher plane if the bill to bo presented in the House next week, making it possible to render decisions and with a commlslson of three members in complete charge of the yume, finally becomes a law. The bill, which is sponsored by Representatives Ernest B. Posey, Reading, and C. W. McBride. Alle- f heny, aims at the more objectionable eatures practiced in. this State.- , That an Iron-gloved commission Is needed In Pennsylvania to ' safeguard - the aport and protect the patrona from aome of the more or lesa coarse Individuals . that have been practicing smooth games, haa been felt for a lonjr tlme. And the only way to blot out the objectionable characters and the contract breaker a la by, the method suggested In the pro- p posed bill. . ' Controlling boxing by a commission la not a novelty. Seventeen states have adopted the Idea and the sport, which has been cleaned up and given added dignity, is flourishing as never before. Commissions- have proven successful in all of these states, and there Is but little ddubt that the same desired result . will - be obtained in Pennsylvania.

The same doaa ahonld eliminate Pennsylvania ali'kjneaa. The bill as It is being drawn up. will require that the promoters of fight clubs pay a tax of 125, and that the fighters, referees, judges, timekeepers, managers, trainers, physicians and seconds pay a small ta. Decisions would be given at the termination of a ten-round bout similar to New York, where the opinions of the, judges and referee Indicate the winner. . .. - Under this arrangement it would be possible to hold real championship bouts. Ty Cobb. Eddie Collins and Walter Johnson, . three wonder stars In the diamond firmament, are on the eve of their eighteenth consecutive season. Cobb is 86 years old, and handling the -double burden of manager and centerflelder of the Detroit Tigers. Collins, 36, is still the king of the second basemen and captain of the Chicago White Sox. Johnson, 85, may still be called the star of the Senator's Burling staff. Of this great trio, Johnson, overworked ror years. Is perhaps the one to marvel at the, most, having such an exacting position. Next to them, four yearn leaa fnihe service, come Trla Sneaker, . pluylna; manager of the Cleveland Indians!

Averaging Just a fraction less than forty points per game, the Penn State cage team has just closed one of the greatest seasons In history and will rank as one of the greatest scoring machines in the East. Thirteen victories out of fourteen starts were registered by Coach B. M. Hermann's passers, the only defeat coming at the hands of Cornell by a two-point margin. In fourteen games,- the Nlttany Lions scored a total of 657 points while opposing teams registered but 802, or an average of twenty-one per game.

The new organization is expected to take over the Kllbane-Criqul and Wilde-Villa world championship bouts, for which the old Republic A. C. claims to have made contracts. Edison Scrubs Lose The St. Andrews team defeated the Edison Scrub team with a 29 to 23 score last evening. The game was hard fought from start to finish.

BECKETT STILL AFTER DEMPSEY LONDON", March 15. Joe Beckett U wi oniy man in iiingiana wno minus that Joe Beckett should fight Jack Dempsey. The more or .less hectic scramble that has been made In certain somewhat obscure Quarters to lead the amiable Joe into the ring with tho ferocious Jack has left Hngland's Eporiing populace as cola as the outside of an Kskimo's Igloo. Not every British sportsman will go so far as to brand the proposed match a pugilistic pretext to evade the laws against manslaughter, mayhem and similar nigniy obstructive ana personal crimes, but they are practically unanimous in regarding It as an utterly inadequate entertainment from a pugilistic standpoint. The best thing that has been pointed out about the match in England thus far Is that it Is proposed to hold it in the United States, where the long-suffering and docile English population will not be compelled to gaze upon It. Old Joe himself, however, seems to crave pugilistic Intimacy with the monarch of the heavy weights. The memory of what happened to Wlllard, Fulton, the dashing Georges and a swarm of lesser lights seems to. have faded from Joes consciousness. Whether he really thinks he has a chance with Dempsey, or whether he belongs to that opportunistic school of knuckle-dusters who are convinced that the unexpected may happen in the ring and is willing; to take a chance for the sake of whatever financial advantage may accrue, Is a secret that Joe Is keeping locked In his own . brawny bosom.. , Colonials Snowed Under The P.

Martin, new track coach at Harvard,' is that In order to produce a good . track team, one must have a young army of candidates from which to select. . 'The. track world is watching Martin's work with decided Interest. He has a reputation of turning out winners as easily , as a hungry prizefighter disposes of a juicy beefsteak. Among . his proteges are Larry Shields, intercollegiate mile winner last year; Romig, winner of the Intercollegiate csass-couritry run two rears back: Barron, hurdler of the 820 Olympic team, and Helfrlc, who captured the honors in last year's N. A. A. U. half-mile run last summer; Martin came to Harvard from Pcnn State. His theory of having many candidates worked to the extent of raising the initial, squad from 25 to S00 men.
