EMBRYO SOLDIER LADS TRAINING FOR BATTLE WITH NAVY No gridiron contest in this country has quite the zest
of the annual meeting between the elevens of the Military and Naval academies. With the victory of last year behind them,
the West Pointers feel that they will again sink the sailors. The two teams meet in New York on November 25.
HEW BANTAM STAR
BOBS UP IN GOTHAM
Joe Lynch Springs Into Fame
by Clearly Outpointing the
Champion, Johnny Ertle.
OWNS A LIGHTNING LEFT
J By RINGSIDE. .
' New York Oct. 28. The nearest
approach the "Greater City has had
to a genuine ring champion since the
days when Terry McGoyern reigned
supreme in the bantam and feather
weight divisions is embodied in -the
frail person .of one Joe Lynch. Until
a few weeks ago this spindle-legged
lad was obscured in the environment
of the West Side of this town. Ovef
' night he leaped into fame, when he
outboxed and outfought Bantam
Champion Johnny Ertle at the Pio
neer Sporting club of this city.
The remarkable part of this
achievement has never before been
revealed to the public. It is the as
tonishing fact that Lynch has been
boxing professionally slightly over a
year only a few days have passed
since' the first anniversary of his en
trance into the ranks ot the money
gatherers. As a matter of record,
Lynch never before that appeared in
. the hempen square. He absorbed all
his fistic knowledge, first hand, on the
streets of the West Side, where bare
knuckle fighting is still in vogue that
is, it is in vogue to settle sporadic
argument on the very spot they start.
Ertle Hat No Alibi.
In his ring encounters prior to the
Ertle -affair Lynch showed latent
fighting powers, but it required a
bout with the champion of the-class
to bring out all the dormant ability
in Lynch. Ertle can proffer no alibi
in fact, he hasn't offered any as vet
for his defeat, for the champion had
seen Lynch defeat Jack Sharkey, a
neighborhood rival, two weekareyi
ous, and Johnny spent all of the in
tervening time in getting ready for
Lynch. ' .
The Ertle fight, as has been said,
brought out all there is in Lynch-'
that is, on the surface it appeared to
be all there is in Lynch. Whether
he possesses any more good qualities
than these he showed against Ertle
remains to be seen in future bouts.
He displayed everything in the box
ing category that evening except, per
haps, a good (tiff right hand punch.
But Lynch's hat-rack extension left
jab more than counterbalanced what
ever deficiency he showed with his
right. . ...
Has Lightning Jab.
Lynch hat a left jab that rivals the
. snappy lightning left thrusts of Mike
Gibbons and Jack Britton. Which is
say it g a good deal for a practical
nrnnhvte in the boxing game as com
pared "with' these- two seasoned cam-
fiaigners. . Lynch whipped over that
eft jal on Ertle whenever he so de
sired. This ont blow was enough to
defeat Ertle, although Lynch tried a
bit of infighting, as well as a dash of
I uppercutting with his right. But
LyncB win nave iu cuutmc uiu
hand of his before he can seriously be
considered as the coming bantam,
weight champion.. Lynch, in addi
tion to having a retentive memory
which retains anything now an oppo
nent ran, show him a whipoer-snap-
oins left, and the customary Irish
bulldog tenacity and gamenessK has
another natural advantage over all
his bantam contemporaries. He is
without question the tallest member
of the 116-pound family. He towers
some five feet seven inches, which is
considered a sizeable height for even
the ordinary lightweight. Another
thing in favor of Lynch is that his
reach extends inches beyond that of
- any other bantam. Taking into a
final reckoning that Lynch possesses
these two natural advantages, in ad
dition to his other qualifications, he
stands fqremost as the . prospective
Ertle has never contended that
Lvnch'a victory over him was a fluke.
That is the best thing' that can be
said in favor of the champion he has
not emitted" th customary squawk.
Lynch, however, stands ready to give
the title-holder a return match; but
Johnny must bide his time until
Lynch has cleaned up the rest of the
contenders. Lynch is seeking an un
disputed right to the championship,
and for that reason wants to clean up
' the field before tackling Ertle again,
as the latest sensation is confident he
' can knock out Ertle if they meet a
second time, -

FOOT BALL GAMES
All Four of Big Games in the

MOHAN WANTS TO BATTLE
By FRANK G. MENKE.
Foot ball will pay some handsome

There is promise now of capacity

possible, the Yale authorities may

The Harvard Stadium will seat
about 42,000, and the big Harvard-
Princeton game there promises to lure

at Princeton will take care of over
40,000 spectators, and seat demands
for the Yale-Princeton combat al

Although the Army-Navy date is
the same as that of the Yale-Har

Al McCoy May Not
Be Great, But He's
Got Plenty of Nerve
New .York, Oct. 28. Al McCoy,
who claims the middleweight title,
may not be regarded as a great cham
pion, but he seeems to be game
enough. If it were not for his doubt
ful claim to the honors, McCoy's
earning power would be worth men
tioning, yet he is willing to risk all
in a battle with Lcs Darcy.'
At present McCoy is negotiating
with Tom Andrews, who acts as Pro
moter Snowy Baker s representative,
for a bout with the Australian sensa
tion. The Brooklynite has named a
price which is reasonable enough if
his claim to the title is at all worthy
of consideration. - But in order to
avoid mistakes, McCoy insists that the
amount of his guarantee be posted in
a local bank before he packs his trunk
for the long trip. That is whei'e the
hitch comes in, as Baker is not in the
habit of pacing tor goods in advance.
. i For, McCoy to tackle Darcy, looks
like pugilistic suicide for the awkward
Brooklyn slugger. There is no such
thing as a no-decision bout in Aus
tralia, otherwise he would not be tak
ing such a desperate chance. It is
better than an even proposition that
he could stick the full twenty rounds,
for he is just as tough and knows as
much about the game as George
Brown, who stood off Darcy without
suffering a knockdown. Then, too,
there would always be that one chance
in a hundred of McCoy landing an
other lucky wallop, such as he slipped
to George Chip. 1

CENTRAL HIGH HAS
TWO TEAMS TO BEAT
Beatrice and . Lincoln Alone
Stand Between Mulligan and
SHOULD WIN BOTH GAMES
By KARL LEE.
Whits the path to a valley cham
pionship with its wreaths of glory
almost stares Coach Harold Mulligan
of Central High in the face, the cloud
of Beatrice and Lincoln rises to stand
between. The burning question is,
"Will he keep his step?" From the
standpoint of a perfectly-coached
squad the Omaha team is a winner.
Yet there is always that possibility
that some of the men may prove false
when they stack up against snch as
Rathbun and Reese have in the field.
Lincoln's game with York displayed
one outstanding failing. It is a one
man team. In Halfback Griffin, in
jured or not, the fate of the team de
pends. This towering youth of 19
years and 185 pounds is the whole
works at Lincoln. After failing to
gain a foot in two line smashes, due
to a bad "charley horse," this Griffin
at a critical moment stepped ten
yards back of the line of scrimmage
on a fake punt formation, looked for
several hair-raising moments to the
right and to 'the left, finally singled
out his man, and dropped a twenty-four-yard
pass into the waiting arms
of Lamb, end, who was at the mo
ment racing across the goal line. Lin
coln s other two touchdowns were
hung up in just the same manner.
Two Stars at Beatrice. ,
Coach Rathbun has a husky, well
rounded squad at Beatrice. Probably
but two men shine above the others,
these being Kilpatnck, tackle, and
Tones, fullback. The former is com
paratively slow and lumbering in his
weight, but is a wonder at kicking.
He can place-kick or drop-kick at al
most anv angle. His beef on the line
is one of the bulwarks that makes
Rathbun's slow, easy style of play a
success. Jones is a hard line smasher.
fast on his feet, and has a state-wide
reputation. Including two entire
back fields, the rest of the squad is
of capable quality, good for a gain at
almost any time. Supported by a
heavy line and generated by a quar
terback of three years' experience, the
team works like a machine.
Team Has the Goods.
Such is the situation that faces Mul
ligan and such it gives rise to the
question. ' The goods is in the team.
It has weight: it has speed; it has
fighting power, backed by the best
possible coaching. Mulligan has de
veloped a defense that in the games
this far has proved impenetrable.
Speed will be Central s slogan in
these two crucial games, speed backed
by machine-like line work. To let a
Griffin whirl his way past the primary
defense would be slaughter, for Reese
has developed wonderful interference,
even with his weak squad. To forget
to spread on formations with the Lin
colnites on the offensive would be
disaster. The Beatrice game will be
a battle-of one machine against an
other, the speed of the one against
the speed of the other. Let Mulligan
strip the Queen City of her wing men
and there is little chance of Central
losing the valley title.

Christy Mathewson Passes Up
Golf Game to Answer Lure
of Trap Shooting.

By PETER P. CARNEY.
"Christy" Mathewson, Bucknell '00,
for many years-the pitching staff of
the New York Giants, and now the
manager of base ball's Jonah team
the Cincinnati Reds is a "gun bug."

has to spare away from base ball is
given to trapshooting.
There will be no tour of the ball
player-trapshooters this fall, but if
there was Mathewson would be one
of the party. He filed his application
early. "Big Six" was a novice at the
trapshooting game wncn uic uiV u-

He became just as mucn a sniucm
of trapshooting as of base ball. He
became interested in the sport, then a
devotee, and then decided that he
wanted to know just how to break
em all the time. Matty talked with
the cracks that it was his pleasure to
meet and all of them supplied him
with good advice, and as he made Jhe
rounds frorn ichmondcrOmaha and
back to Boston he picked up some
thing in every city. m
"Matty" was very frank in saying
that his eyes were opened to the rea
lization of the widespread interest in
trapshooting. He never thought it was
such a good sport or that so many
people were interested in it. Since the
trapshooting trip Mathewson has in
vaded the fields, too, and with Frank
Sterens went into the North Carolina
woods for ten days last winter.
Good base ball players as a rule
make excellent trap shots! It is an
accepted fact that it requires the same
acting in unison of the eye, brain and
nerves to become a successful base
ball player that it does to become an
n.r tranOiooter. and in either sport
it requires practice to become a leader.
