He said it "ona like a growl, too. "Best girl lone back on you.' we queried. "Sope," he mumbled. The truth of the matter Is that August finished hard training for a resiling match. As all close followers of boxing and wrestling inow, when an athlete nears the day of a match, he (the athlete) becomes father hard boiled. Some boiled larder than others. That process of training, the boiling out and the trind, together with the natural ten-"m when a contest approaches, "altes th&m all hard to get along ith, some more than others.

A Terre Haute scribe, writing in The Sporting News last week said that all weren't satisfied with the schedule for this year. If every club isn't pleased with the playing program nothing could satisfy whoever is riled. Every club shares practically alike in the distribution of holiday and Sunday dates. Each club has either nine Sundays and two holidays, or ten Sabbath dax dates and one holiday. What could be fairer? Long Stands, Jump Banned. Long home stays and equally lengthy road, treks are eliminated. The schedule, released today, books 140 games, opening the season April 29 and closing Sept. 7. The champions open at Terre Haute; Bloomington at Danville: and Peoria at Evansville. The holiday dates are filled as follows.

Central Illinois Farmers Form Baseball Loop Amateur Circuit to Provide Recreation for Tillers of the Soil LINCOLN. 111., Illinois farmers Feb. 23. Central are going to play ball. With the object of lightening the drudgery of farm work and add ing some pleasure to the lot of the athletically inclined tillers of the soil, the Illinois Farm Bureau Baseball League has been organized. Teams wil lbe placed in the counties of Logan, Sangamon, Macoupin, Menard, Morgan. Cass, Scott and others. Only farmers and sons of farmers, or those who are employed by farmers, will be eligible to play. The games will be purely upon an amateur basis and all professionals will be barred. Games will, be played on Saturdays only and only with farm bureau teams of adjacent counties. Efforts are being made to. organize teams in every county of Illinois which has a farm bureau, and. it is expected, a large number will become affiliated. For many years, Illinois farmers have been concerned over the attractions of the city for the sons and daughters, and they have sought to make farm life more attractive for the young people and thus make them more contented. The baseball league is counted upon to prove a strong factor In overcoming the lure. of the big city and keeping the youth of the rural districts more satisfied with pastoral existence. It is planned to open the season as soon as the weather will permit In April. Change in Plan of 35 District Cage Tourneys Winning Teams in Three Meeti, But Week Allowed Between Each BLOOMINGTON, Feb. 25. Final instructions are going out to the various prep schools of the state, preliminary to the thirty-five - district basketball tournaments on March 6, 7 and 8, from the office of Manager C. TV. Whitten of the Illinois High School Athletic Association. The increased number of district contests this year shortens the traveling item, none of the competing teams being required to go farther than fifty miles. This reduces the transportation charges materially. The winning teams must play through three tournaments, but a week is allowed for recuperation. , Sectional Meet Here. The winners of the district tournaments will assemble at Joilet. Peoria, Decatur and Benton on March 14 and 15 to compete for the sectional honors, the winners to go to TJrbana on March 21 for the finals, two days being allotted to the state title competition. The new sysem of three separate tournaments, has proven to be a great success and is a great improvement over the original arrangement of a single meet with sixty to seventy-five contesting for the honors. Close Schedules Soon. Most of the prep schools close their season during the coming week and the squads will then prepare for the district competitions the first week of March. Approximately 500 teams will compete in the district tournaments, Indicating the great increase in interest in the pastime. PURDUE FIVE TO MEET BUCKEYES Conference Leaders Tangle with Ohio State Quintet Tomorrow LAFAYETTE. Ind..

LUIS FIRPO Tex Threatens to Build up Quintin Romero-Rojas for Dempsey SOUTH AMERICAN, TOO (By Associated Press.) ' NEW YORK, Feb. 25 Jack Dempsey may be called on to defend his heavyweight championship against a new South American menace next fall, if present plans of Tex Rick-ard materialize. The promoter announced today that he had guaranteed Quintin Romero-Bojas, Chilean heavyweight, $100,000 for a title fight with Jack Dempsey, possibly in Septemben if he succeeds in disposing of three preliminary opponents. Rickard said that reports 'reaching him justified the prediction that the Chilean might prove an even greater sensation than Luis Angel Firpo, who gained a match with Dempsey after cutting a wido swath through the heavyweight ranks. No Agreement TVlth I.uia At the same time, Rickard revealed that he has no definite agreement with Firpo for a return match with Dempsey, and that he may abandon plans for isuch a contest if Romera-Rojas demonstrates that he is a fit challenger tor the champion. Rickard has received the assurance of Jack Kearns, Dempsey's manager, that the champion would be ready to meet Romero-Rojas if the latter comes up to expectations. According to present plans, the Chilean's first bout will be with Fre Fulton or Floyd Johnson as an opponent. Should he emerge victorious, a match with Jack Renault, hard-hitting Canadian, next would be sought, Rickard asserted. The promoter said he would not consider an elimination fight between Romero-Rojas and Firpo. Tex Offer Stands With practical abandonment by a New York syndicate of efforts to match Firpo and Harry Wills, Rickard declared he stood ready to renew his recent offer for such a contest. Rickard's proposition of $100,000 for Wills and $200,000 to Firpo was rejected by both fights, but the promoter he would reoffer his bid. Rickard said he is ready to etage such a fight in Boyle's Thirty A;res, his Jersey City arena, in July, if his terms are accepted. The syndicates offer was for a purse of $500,000 to be evenly divided by the principals. Plan Firpo-Rojas Go in Buenos Aires (By Associated Press.) BUENOS AIRES, Feb. 25 Efforts are being made to arrange a bout here between Luis Firpo and Quintin Romero-Rojas, the Chilean heavyweight, before Firpo sails for the United States. It- is thought possible that something definite will be arranged tomorrow, when the time limit, fixed by the South American Boxing tedcration for Flr-po's answer to the challenge of Ro- jas. expires. Rojas told the Associate! xress today that he had sent a cable dis--patch to Tex Rickard in New York, accepting an offer for three fights in the United States, but that his departure for Hew York immediately depends on whether or not Firpo accepted his challenge for a battle here. Tex Before Commish Today in Ducat Probe NEW YORK. Feb. 25.
