Giants) Max Schmelling. the German heavyweight threat, has been very much in the public prints for the past year, but there is another young foreigner. Otto Von Porat, who Is fast developing Into a Norwegian threat. Von Porat tall, trail-looking body has filled out aud he now weights !04 pounds in shape and looks like he could assimilate plenty of punishment. And he possesses a great right hand that tarries dynamite In It and in thia era of ligth hitting heavyweights, since Dempsey went Into temporary retirement, that Is something to conjure with. It looks now as if Sharkey has tired of these endless elimination matches and will sit at the ringside and watch the other fellows do their stuff until one of them is primed to meet him. And It may be Von Porr.t. Stranger things have happened in pugilism. Columbia Signs Georgetown Coach NEW YORK. Dec. .

(Al) Otto Von Porat of Norway and Phil Scott, the fighting fireman from London; clash in a 11-round bout In Madison Square Garden tonight for charity's sake and for a possible "shot" at the heavy. weight championship of the world. Three Contenders Twenty-four hours before the battle. William Muldoon. venera ble New York slate athletic com mlssloner and co-donor, with Gene Tiwney. of the Tunney-Muldoon heavyweight championship trophy announced that eo far as he could see there were only three contend ere for the vacant title Jack Sharkey of Boston, Max Schmel-ling of Germany, and the' winner of tonight's bout. In a general review of the heavyweight situation, Muldoon outlined plans for matches. One in Miami In February, and the other In New York In September, by which he hoped 'he throne could be accept ably filled. Muldoon Has Plan Under Muldoon's plan the sur vivor of tonight's bout would meet Sharkey or Schemellng at Mi ami, with the winner battling Sharkey or Schmellng tor the title in Sept mber. Thus If Sharkey gets tb all In February and wins he woulci meet Schemellng In September, and vice versa should Schmellng be picked for the Mi ami tight. At 85, Muldoon wields tremen dous power In the boxing game, because of hla position as state commissioner and co-donor of the heavyweight trophy, as well as because of the sheer force of his dominating personai'ty, Muldoon's word carries weight. Figure Hell-Out With Muldoon' announcement as an added Incentive to fans, and with Jack Dempsey to be the referee, tonight's card, for the benefit 'of the Christmas charity fund, of which Mrs. Randolph Hearst is chairman, should be a sell-out. Von Porat, because of his great punching power, ruled a slight favorit over the clever Briton. TPP THREW HER DOWN-PHILADELPHIA John Win- tera Upp. Jr., threw his ' wife down.

Carnegie was soundly trounced by Pittsburgh, the un-beaten clan that has drawn the Invitation to meet Southern California in th big holiday engagement. Tech may "soften up" the Trojan, or they may be able to give an eye-witness account of Just what Pitt will be up against. Within the next fortnight, Pitta Panthers, as well as West Point Cadets will be on the march west. by easy stages. The soldiers are assigned to the Palo Alto sector, determined on a final drive to break their "Jinx" of !:. win a major battle and at the same time obtain revenge for the walloping administered by Stanford at the Yankee stadium last year. On the basis of the iorm Red Cagle and his mates displayed against Notre Dame, .their chances for overthrowing the Cardinals appear with some ballyhoo.
