Three Indiana Towns Combine
To Stage Big Boxing Matches
TRIO of towns now is striving to make theirs
a mecca of fistic battle grounds.
East Chicago, Indiana Harbor and Gary
all grouped in Indiana, just about 16 to 20 miles
from Chicago are extending a real lure to ring
men in every branch of the sport. The forma
tion of the Twin City Athletic club led to the
building of the arena, which comfortably seats
close to 12,000, making it probably the largest outdoor
affair in America, barring the Rickard place in Jersey City.

than a year, has put in some choice
tid-bits in a warlike way but it now
becomes more ambitious and aims
to stage championship tussles in
every branch of the game.
Gives Youngsters Chance.
"lint, in addition to that, we alsf
want to make the Twin City Athletic
club a fpot where youngsters will pet
a real chance to display their wares,"
tieclared 11. A. Hya.ns, the promoter.
''It's been our experience that fight
crowds delight in seeing youngsters
with real ability in action. Wc want
to givi the kids, as well as the big
stars of the ring, a chance to earn
money and glory out in our towns.
"It will be possible for us to put on
perhaps three of four more shows
before the weather gets a bit too cool
for outdoor fighting. Just now we
are angling for some of the cham
pions to headline our various cards.
But we likewise want to catch some
'comers' too. So any manager who
has a boy that has shown something
ieal1y worth while can write to me
at the Mohawk hotel, Indiana Har
bor, Ind., and we'll give the best of
them a chance to show what they've
Not Financial Gain.
"The champions of tomorrow are
the obscure youngsters of today.
The only way they can get the op
portunity to show their greatness is
by appearance before real crowds.
The Twin City Athletic club will ac
cord such a chance to every kid who
has displayed something worth
while: something that may warrant
a general belief that with more ex
perience he will race along to the
crest of his division."
. The club, backed by some of the
wealthiest men in the Gary-East Chicago-Indiana
Harbor district, is com
posed of real sportsmen. The men
behind it brought the organization
into existence not because they
were prompted by the thought of
financial gain, but because they
wanted to have in their neighborhood
a real fight club and a real arena.
Just now the organization is ang
ling for Jack Dempsey, Tom Gib
bons and also Mike Gibbons. If iJ
can get all three then each of them,
with an opponent, will star the next
three , shows which are to be put
on through September and October.

Women Bowling Le
Organized in Omaha This Fall
Bowling promises to be so popular in Omaha this season
that proprietors of bowling alleys plan to make it possible
for the "fairer sex" to participate in the sport by setting
aside certain days of each week for women.
The Farnam alleys will organize
an afternoon ladies' league. Mem
bers of the Carter Lake club, who
have bowled on the alleys in previous
years, will be invited to become
members. Tuesday afternoon prob
ably will be set aside for women at
these alleys.
Six men's bowling leagues in the
city already have taken steps to pre
pare for the coming season, which
will start September 1, when the
alleys will be thrown open to the
public, after being closed since
July 1.
The American Railway Express
league and the Union Pacific leagues
have set their opening dates, while
the Mercantile, Alamito, Swift and
Clan-Gordon leagues will set theirs
next week at meetings to be held at
the various alleys.
The American Railway league will
open their season Septembr 6, while
the Union Pacific will launch their
race the following day.
Indications are that there will be
more than 30 leagues organized at
public bowling alleys, in additions to
those which will be formed by the
Y. M. C. A., private clubs and organ
izations. The Omaha alleys report
14 clubs in the process of organiza

A soccer foot ball tournament will
be conducted in the grade schools
this fall, Ira Jones, city recreational
director, said today. Jones was in
charge of the tournament last year,
in which 26 grade schools entered
No active steps toward organizing
teams in the schools will be taken
until about the middle of September,
as schools do not open here until
September 6.
As many as 40 teams are expected
to compete in the tourney this year.
In 1919, when the firs tournament
was held, 10 schools entered teams.
Last year, so popular did the game
become, that 26 teams competed. Th
championship was won last year by
Miller Park school and Howard Ken
nedy was the runner up.
According to Jones, soccer is
repidly increasing in popularity as a
school sport. While minus the dan

the American boy and make him fond

Hudson Super-Six, $1895
Effective August 17th
These are the lowest prices at which
these models have ever been sold.
You will understand something of the value this gives to the
Hudson Super Six when you remember that at $2,600 it was tha
world's largest selling fine car. Today's price saves you $705.
Essex Further Leads
All in Its Class
Everybody has always classed Essex with costly cars in perform
ance, endurance and appearance. It combines with those quali
ties the economy of light cars, in fuel, oil and tires. Thousands of
owners report as high as twenty-five thousand miles of service
with scarcely any maintenance cost.
More than fifty thousand Essex cars are in service. For the per
formance and endurance given, Essex had no rival at its last
year's price of $1,795.
What can approach it today with this saving of $420.
At lower prices than they have ever sold for, you can
get either a Super Six or an Essex this year and have the
best months in which to enjoy it.
