! Coming h'rom Overseas to Join Bar
, rett Ranks
' Joe Barrett, the Steelton boxing i
promoter, is watching and waiting
for the new famous twenty-eighth
division of the Pennsylvania state :
troops to return from over there. In '
this troop he has three of the best
I boxers in their respective classes I
showing before the big fuss started:
namely. Steve Conlon, of Altoona,
i whom Barrett said will annex the
place now held by Benny Leonard, :
| lightweight champion, and Johnny |
j Gill, whom every one knows in this !
! section as the cleverest welterweight i
I in this section.
i Gill like Silar is a native of York.
' and his last bout before going across
I was to stop Johnny Wolgast with
I three broken ribs.
i When Barrett first contemplated
putting on shows at Pteelton, he
j wrote of his intentions to Gill and the
, other boys, and told him of his inten- !
tions to locate in this section. A re-
I turn letter from theni said O. K.; Just i
j heat things up a bit. until we return. 1
1 We have taken on several pounds of I
j weight but it is solid. I
It will be impossible for Gill to j
intake 14J pounds on his return, which '
is the legitimate welterweight. Just ,
before sailing. Gill was matched with '
Jack Britton. who then held the wel- i
ter title, but Jack lost to Ted Lewis, i
Recently Jack accomplished some- ■
thing never done before, that was to I
win back his title, so Gill's one aim. i
Barrett says, is to get a crack at Brit- j
ton. The battling twenty-eighth will ]
return home in May, it is a good bet ;
that Barrett wilt g,. after Britton for I
his protege. Gill's last letter to Bar

cup, who recently accepted the condition
of the Xew York Yacht Club for a race
in 1910, arrived here to-day on the
steamship Aquitania from Liverpool. He
' was accompanied only by his secretary i

I to meet old friends, many of whom he '
had not seen since his last visit to the 1
United States in 1913.
As was recently announced from Lon-'
don, Sir Thomas agreed that it would '
be advisalfe to race before next year. |
"BesideA" he added, "it will be" all to I
my advantige to put it off for the 1

Lewis's Head Lock Will Be
Supreme Test For Dr. Roller
j Famous Physician-Wrestler Who M eets "Strangler" Lewis here Tuesday-
Any way one looks at it the wrest
; ling battle to-morrow night between
! lid "Strangler" Lewis and Dr. 1!. F.
Roller, at the Chestnut Street Audi
i torium, gives every promise of being
| one of the hardest fought mat contests
j ever scheduled in this country, and one
! that will give the public a full evening
of satisfaction. Both men have every
. thing to gain by a victory and both are
i on edge for the big match.
Aside from the fact that it Is a
championship battle, between the two
' leading heavyweight wrestlers of this
| country, now that Joe Stecher has been
eliminated by his defeat at the hands
i of Lewis, chief interest centers in the
| struggle itself on account of the two
: contestants being so evenly matched,
j And the outcome, so it seems, depends
1 entirely upon whether Roller, former
; American champion, has profited by the
i example ef Zbyszko and thus knows
| how to break the great headlock of the
