It was the end of ths first round ot the
second preliminary at the National A. C.
last Saturday night. It also was tha end
of tha right. Over In one corner sat a blond
pompadoured heavyweight who listened to
tha singing of the little birdies white his
seconds explained that the celling did not
fall, nor did the door come and hit him In
the other corner sat another heavyweight,
listening to the same little birdies, while a
gang of admirers showered him with con
gratulations nnd the contents ot the water
bucket. In the center of the ring stood
Jack MoGulgan, the referee. It was a
Suddenly from one ot the corners came
one of the gladiators Ha was swaying
and listing heavily to port as he steered a
course toward Mcbulgan.
"Is the fight over. Jack?" ha asked
"Certainly," replied McOulgan. "It has
been over for five minutes."
"Please don't think I am getting per
sonal," said the gladiator alter a long
pause, "but my curiosity In getting the bet

"Vou won by a knockout TJan." answered
Jack. "It was a great battle Don't you
remember stopping Urewer with that right
to tha Jaw!"
Unn Gets Good News
Dan Miller didn't remember, but his sec
onds did. They rushed him out of the
ring, slipped him some mora congratula
tions without tha water and In a short
tlma made tha boxer feel like a man who
had just received news that he had ben
elected clieer lesder of his favorite lodge.
Tha bout was one of tho most
extraordinary ever staged In this ulty. It
was between Dan Miller, of 1'hllailolphla,
and Itay Drawer, of Incater Urewer
swatted Miller alongside of tho ear In the
first minute and Dan hit the canvas. He
got up, stopped another terrlfla swing with
his Jaw, and dived to the floor again. Then
he staggered around the ring, wildly waving
his arms, while Urewer attempted to put
him out for keeps..
Ilut Itay was not protecting his own
Jaw, and one ot Miller's swings connected.
Down went tho athlete from Lancaster, nnd
ho hit thu lloor as If he meant It At (lie
count of nine he was staggering around,
while Miller, also staggering, reeled after
him. Until were hazy, each was in shnpu to
receive a wallop that would ring down the
curtain, and It was only u question nn to
who would land tha llr.it blow. Ktldenlly
tho men believed they were In a battlu royal
or something, for each was seeing double.
The Supreme Moment
Miller stumbled forward and Urewer, also
stumbling, tried to meet him. It was tlm
supremo moment The same thought ran
through tho mind of each man A knock
out punch must ho delivered and ho
would do tha delivering. Two sturdy arms
were drawn back and two right-h.ind
swings were started from the afloor. Two
gloves swished through tho nlr.'but Miller's
conncoted first. Urewer then lost all fur
thor Interest In the proceedings, as he was
knocked through tha rones and almost
landed In Sammy Vogel'n lap. Hammy
pushed him back In the ring, hut Itay didn't
-are Ho was comfortable and did not
wish to bo disturbed.
It tool; Mlljer as long to recover as
Brewer and neither knew who had been
tho vlotor. The battle made such a. hit,
however, that Jack McOulgan Blgned them

Engaging of Hjortbcrg to
Coach Has Made That
NOW ARE WORTHY RIVALS
Ily J. E. (TED) MEREDITH
World's Itslt-Mtls Chmpton.
The United States still Is at the top In
trsck- alhletlca and will be for some yeara
to come, although they can expect a wormy
rival In Sweden, It will be remembered
that In tIJ tha Swedes were the ones to
finish next to this country In the track and
field competition at Stockholm, and while
they were not a close second, they did very
fine work and outstripped other rivals by
as much as they were by us
At that time Sweden only had taken this
branch of sport up seriously two years be
fora, 1910, whon they came to this country
and engaged Hrnest HJertberg as trainer
of tha country's athletes Uefore this they
had no system and had no real governing
body, at least It never had taken any united
Interest or effort to put a team out such
as they did two years later In tha stadium
at Btockholm When HJertberg took this
Job on his shoulders ha took a big one, hut
he accomplished great things with his men
In 1911. and since then he has dune even
HJertberg went to 8wedsn without being
able to speak a word of the language, which
la a great handicap at the start. Ha had
to teach men things and point out their mis
takes, and couldn't talk tha language, but
he soon picked up enough to get going ;
then his hands were a great help In speak
ing Ills July was to couch a whole nation,
and when you think that each college, schuol
snd club has n separate coach over here
oil can seo what he was up against
Well, he managed to como through In
gpod shape In the Olympics In spllo of nil
this, and since those games tho Swedish
A A. L' has becomo mora Interested and
things are now In vary good shape It Is
only n matter of tlma and a little more ex
perience, when we will have to start to fear
them In International contests
Tho authorltl have given HJertberg
several assistants to help him with his
work. These assistants are stationed In the
large cities and have charge ot nil tha
men In those districts. HJertberg makes
several trips a year to see the work these
men are doing and to look over their best
proteges. When he finds nny man who
looks real good he gives that man some
personal attention, and when the big meets
are held he tuke them nil tmUrr his wing.
To Have Ten AsslstnnLs
ICveti now he Is too crowded with work
re j Ily to give his best to the furthering
of the sport, ho next year he Is to hate u
total of ten assistants and the natltes have
subscribed about tCO.000 for sport, most of
It to be used for track. Uesldes this. HJert
berg Is running a school for coachrn when
tha season Is over, and In this way they
are' going to have plenty ot men to tench
the sport and not only that but good and
They ore very niivloun to get things going
and to bring thumeelvenXjp to our standard,
which they are bound to do under such
work uml organisation as they now have
There u ro many things, howivr, that they
will have to get away from, but these are
only little details which will work them
selves out as they go along on the lines
HJertberg outlined the whole system to
mo while In Stockholm, and I think they
are working along the right path Tha
teaching of athletics Is to ma olio of the
best things that they have taken up In their
campaign. In HJertberg they hae a man
who knows track athletics about us well us
any man In the game.
He wan for many years a very successful
coach anil trainer around New York, and
had under his wing many world'n record
holders He has the right dope on nil tha
events and Is a man who can Impart his
knowledge with clearness.
