In His Recent Battles Forest City
Scrapper Has Shown Skill , Speed
and Punch Attel Not Improving ,
Although Still Great.
Now tint .liibnny Kilbane. the cicie
land featherweight , Is to meet Abe
Attell for the < hamplonshlp In Los
Angeles I'eb. 22. the question pre
KcntH itself , What are his chances with
the holder of the title ?
There Is a big diversity of opinion
among the followers of the game
throughout the country. Johnny has
thousands of admirers who have abso
lute confidence In bis ability to beat
the wonderful little Hebrew tighter ,
and on the Pacific coast there arc a
good many who will support him In
his dispute with Attell.
Viewed from a strictly unbiased
point of view and with due respect to
Abe Attell and the wonderful ability
ho has displayed in the past. It now
looks as if Kilbane stands a peed
chaiice of winning the title that Abe
has defended so valiantly for RO many
years. There are several reasons for
this conclusion. In the llrst place ,
Kilbane has shown high class In every
department of the game. Ho has prov
ed to be an exceptionally brainy sort
of lighter , possessed of the necessary
speinl , hitting power and ability to
stand punishment. He has also shown
remarkable endurance , for he has fin
ished all of his battles in good condi
tion and has not been fatigued to any
Attell Is reaching an age at which
the average pugilNt begins to retro
grade , while Kilbane is just approach
ing his maturity as a lighter. The best
lighters ever known to this country
leached their best between the yearF
of twenty-one and twenty-four. Kll-
bane is now going on twenty-two , and
he Is still gaining in strength and hit
ting power.
Filipinos Are Rapidly Grasping Ameri
can Sport.
Cuba and Japan are not the only ls >
lands which baseball has captured.
Colonel Manuel tjnozon. one of the
two commissioners from the Philip

address in Hoston :
"Did you know that the Filipino boj
takes to your national game as a duck
takes to water ? In this nport tin
young men are encouraged by theii
elder * , and it Is a common thing tc
see from -l.OO'i ' to .1.00(1 ( persons wit

lie a'ready ' understands the fine points
of the game , which is. In fact. becoiU'
ing the national game of the Islands
We have several leagues and teams
that can hold their own with the
teams from the wav < hp- ! .
"Nothing less than a miracle could
bring freedom to the Filipinos last
ing freedom. 1 mean , safe and sure
so quickly as a nieo of men trained
early on the athletic fields , with tht
game of baseball as the basic sport. "

Surprising seems to be the word bout

football rules announced by the solons
after they finished their two day se- >

of three to make the necessary ten
janK The playing Held was shorten
ed Irom 11U yards to 100 yards and the
value of a touchdown was Increased
from the points to six. points.
These change.s , together with the
elimination of the Held judge from the
ollleials , the shortening of the Inter
missions between the llrst and second
( imirter.s and the third and fourth < iuar-
ters from two minutes to one minute ,
the limiting of men on the side lines to
one liibtead of three , the institution of
( he klekoff from the Ulcker's forty
yard line instead oC at mldlleld , as
hitherto , and the putting of the ball
Into play following a touchback from
the twenty yard line instead of from
the twenty-live yard line were the prin
cipal changes made at the meeting.
The rule regarding drop kicking was
made more specHe. ! No weird kick
like that which came from the toe of
De Witt iu the Princeton and Dart
mouth game last fall , the ball striking
the ground and bounding over the
crossbar , \\lll be allowed to count as a
tield goal hereafter , as the committee
has ruled against a bounding bull.
It Is the opinion of the committee
that the changes will make a better
balance between the offense and the
defense than was shown In the game
played under last year's rules ; will en
able the stronger team to show its su
periority over a weaker eleven and will
Improve the running play of the game
without weakening the kicking depart
ment and without reverting to the
pounding attack of the so called "old"
game. With the abolition of. the twen
ty yard -/.one football will bo made
more open than it was , but more stress
will be laid on the running game with
out weakening the kicking department.
The shortening of the playing Held
from 110 yards to 100 yards was made
necessary by the rule permitting a for
ward pass to be made across the goal
line , provided the pass is completed
within ten yards beyond the line. Some
football Hclds will not permit of ten
yuuls beyond the goal lines , so the
goal posts had to be brought in live
> -nrds at each end. making a distance
of 100 yaids Irom goal post to goal
post. The live yard rule behind the
line of scrimmage governing the for
ward pass was retained , as also were
tit her rules regarding the forward pass ,
with the except Ion of the one that did
not permit a pass to be made across
the goal line.
Provided a forward pass made across
the goal line is not completed within
ten yaids beyond the line the pass will
not count as a touchdown , hut will be
considered as a touchback. and , ac-
cordiug to the now rules , the ball must
then be put in play from the twenty
yard line Instead of from the twenty-
li\o yard line , as hitherto followed the
making of a touchbaek.
With the abolition of the ouslde kick
and the wiping out of the twenty yard
zone the duties of a Held judge were
nuililied , and hence the committee de
cided that a Held judge no longer will
be needed Henceforth the linesman
will ha\e jurisdiction over otl'slde pla.i
and .ilso will Keep time. The dntiei
foin.cio plau-d nn a Held judge will be

allowing an eleven four downs instead
of thu-e to make the necessary ten

that a better balance between the at
tack and the defen-e will be instituted
without reverting back to the old mass
The only other change In the rules
not hitherto mentioned is the change
regarding the for goal or klekoff
The winner of the toss at the start of
the game , as usual , will have the priv
ilege of choosing for goal or klckoff.
hut the captain who lost the toss at
the start of the game will have the
choice for goal or klckoff nt the be-
pinning of the second half.
Taking all the changes into consid
eration , the rules committee should bo
congratulated on having Kolvrd the
question of equalizing the offense and
defense. Of course It remains to bo
Keen how the new rules will work out.

Cleveland , Wisconsin's Track Captain ,
Discovered by Exercising.
In Clarence Cleveland the University
of Wisconsin has one of. the greatest
distance runners in the niddle west
this year. Tills is Cleveland's third
year In Intercollegiate track work , and
his DJjrformances heretofore have uni
formly been of such high character as
to warrant the declaration of his ad
mirers that there is no two inller in
the middle west who can compare
with him.
Cleveland was discovered by chance
two years ago. Prior to that time he
had taken no part in track athletics ,
but by chance he took eomc exercise
by running with the track men one
evening , and the coach Insisted that a
man with the tremendous stride that
he had and his perfect physical trim
should try out for the college team.
This is Cleveland's last year in col
lege , and as captain of this year's
team he is determined to bring the
championship home to Wisconsin for
the first time In many years. The most
optimistic doubt this possibility , but
there are very few that doubt that
Cleveland \\ill register very creditably
when the great conference event la
pulled off.

At first It took the players of th *

They made many awkward moves and

It will he remembered that a few

Dlckman , while drinking In the BU
loon at Jordan , quarreled and tlnallv
engaged In a fistic encounter In which
Hlack was worsted ; and \\hen lilt-It-
man finally got him down , lllack used
a knife with serious effect.
Immediately after the affrav Hlack
took to his horse and fled , and noth
ing had been heard of him till Thurs
day , when Sheriff Little received a
phone message from him , stating that
ho would bo in Winner on the evening
train to give himself up.
Sheriff Little was In Iowa ai the
time of the knifing affray , and ( rated
Hlauk northward until he found where
he had sold his horse and saddle , and
helleNing that ho WIIH then in Canada ,
he ga\e up the search. HB | surmise
proved to be correct , as Mr. lllack has
just returned from northwestern Can
ada and IH ready to Htand trial for
what ho lias done.
It WIIH thought at the time of the
knifing that Dlckman might die , but
with prompt and efficient medical
treatment he has come out of it as
good ( IB new with the exception of a
few bad sears.
Hlack will no doubt be bound over
