Lack of Interest
: Shown in Sports
Athletlo directors of the Young Men'i
Christian 'association are peeved ovor
an apparent shortage in track athletes.
They have been training twenty men for
a cross country run New Year's day, but
have discovered that other Institutions
look unkindly on the Upartanlo exhibi
tion. The result ot the lack ot Interest
manifest In the University of Omaha,
high - school and Council Bluffs High
school has been that Young Men's Chris
tian association men threaten to rebel
and hereafter refuse to renter their at
tention on promoting athletlo events. If
Interest does not revive the Young Men's
Christian association uthletea will con
fine their attention wholly to their own
members. Objection to tha run Is based
on tho rain, anow, mud. Ice and slush
but It Is pointed out by the Young Men's
Christian association men that these are
natural obstacles and should In no way
Interfere with track or . other athletic
vena which can be held regardless of

NEW YORK, Dec. 28,-Carl Morris, the
Oklahoma engineer, outfought Tom Ken
nedy, the New York heavyweight. In eight
rounds of a ten-round bout at the Empire
Athletlo club tonlyht.
In tho general opinion of those at the
rlngslda neither of tho "white ,' hopes
showed uny advancement tonight toward
their aspirations of some day wresting
tho world's championship from Jack
Johnson. The 'heavier Ciilalionia man.
wolghlng 22S pounds as compared with
Kennedy's 13. was considered too slow
and Kennedy's much praised footwork
proved a disappointment. " -;
The New York man showed great gamc
ness In taking punishment, lie had so
much the womt of It In the later rounds
Unit tho spectators shouted to Referee
Dan Tome to rtop the, bout,' but he de
clined to Interfere.
PlgM by Hoanda.
The first round was even, With Morrl'
best blows lefts and rights to' the body
and Kennedy's left jabs to tho face.
Morris rushed In In the second with 'a
left to the face, fallowed by lefts and
rights to the head and stomach. - Kennedy
sent hack a couple of led jabs to the
face. Morris kept forcInK through the
third round with rights and lefts to the
body and a left to the face. Kennedy
also got a stinging left to the westerner's
face und followed with a left nwlnt; to
the Jkw. They exchanged body ' blows
and were In the midst of a hot rally at
the bell. It was Morris" round.
Morris was the aggressor agnln in the
fourth, hut In tho fifth honors, went to
KennedyJ, After taking a right and left
to the head and being forecd ,.jnto a
netitral corner, Kennedy exchanged left
hooks with' Morris and got a blu.if.ing
hose. Kennedy caina back with a shot
of his right to the jaw, staggering Morris
to the ropes at the end of tho round.
Morris caqie.back jn the sixth with se
vere punlvhment for 'Kennedy by short
arm Jolts, halt uppercuts and a traight
left on Kennedy's nose which made 1t
bleed the more. From this on Morris
was all over his man" with Kennedy
fighting .hack as 'gamely as he could..
The bout ended with a" rally In - which
both wore infighting to the body. They
clinched several times and In the break
aways Mortis got In the moro telling
blows.. The. only damage Morris showed
was a puffing of his lips, while Kennedy
was bleeding profusely at the nose and
was severely' battered.' '
