Charley Cutler Challenges the
Wrestler Winning on Tuesday
The winner of the Tom Draak-Dr.
Roller match next Tuesday night in
the Chestnut Street Auditorium will
have a tough opponent picked out
for him by Promoter Maxwell Bau
mann. Baumann intends to make
his selection from the trio, Charley
Cutler, "Stranglcr" Lewis and
Wladek Zbyszko, the present title
Baumann received a letter from
Cutler yesterday in which Charley
stated he would like to go a Har
risburg mat with some grappler that
Baumann might pick out for him.
It appears that Cutler is wise to the
fact that Harrisburg is staging the
real stufT here and wants to get in as
a cog (n thp wheel of wrestlers that
are appearing intermittently here.
A letter from Tommy Draak yes
terday stated that the strapping Bel
gian-Netherlands title holder will ar
rive in this city at least four or five
days prior to his scheduled match
with Roller. Tommy intends to com
plete his training for the contest in
Harrisburg. Draak was the vtdtor
in a grapple on Monday night with
John Peterson in Grand Rapids,
Michigan. He gained two falls in
quick succession at catch-as-catch
can style of wrestling.

Second place fell to the fast-playing
Motive Tower team in the West End
Twilight League, last evening, at
Fourth and Seneca streets, before the
usual big crowd. Much of the victory
was due to that famous old war
horse, "Buck" Ramsey, who was there
with the hair, roots and all that goes
with them, not to mention speed and
control. The other boxman showed
caliber, too. allowing Motive Power
but six hits, although Washinger had
better fielding to help him. and so
does not deserve so much eclat as the
artful "Buck."
With three tallies to her credit In
the fifth, while Commonwealth had
not scored, the latter sudenly cut
loose and grabbed two runs, and then
two more in the sixth. Motive Power
needed two runs to win them, and she
made them. The score:

Mayor Keister consulted to-day
with the other fncmbers of City Coun
cil on the. enforcement of the law
lust signed by Governor Sproul,
which compels persons, societies or
organizations holding a public dance
!to take out a permit and pay a fee
of sl. It directs that an annual li
cense fee of $lO to sls must be paid
Ito maintain a public dance hall or a
I ballroom in the city. The law goes
! into effect June 1.
The city teemed to-day with
sportsmen from a big raSius who
are intensely interested in seeing
that the Legislature eliminate a sec
tion of the bill relating to trespass,
which would practically stop tishing
in Pennsylvania. The bill was due to
come up this afternoon and the hotel
lobbies and Capitol corridors echoed
with much bitter denunciation of
the attempt, as the opposers see it,
of corporations and certain men of
wealth to bar out the public from

Charley Cutler is under the man

himself some athlete, and a world's
title aspirant for heavyweight box
ing. His headquarters are at the
Illinois Athletic Club, on the letter
head of which, Promoter Bauniann
yesterday received the following:
In my previous letter challenging
any heavyweight wrestler, I
wish to repeat the challenge, and
would especially like to meet the
winner of the Draak vs. Roller match
and if he is a sportsman he will at
least answer my deft. Dr. Roller has
been dodging me for a long time,
and my inability to get men of that
caliber, including Lewis, Zbyszko and

Federal Boxing Officials Tell
Church Folk Who Oppose'
Dempsey-Williard Fight
A dispatch from Toledo says it
was so hot yesterday at Demp-
Bey's camp on the shores of Maum
Bay. that the challenger for the
heavyweight championship of the
world confined his training to the
early morning and devoted the after
noon to taking a dip In the lake in an
effort to keep cool.
While he was at it, however
Dempsey worked hard, boxing four
furious rounds with Bill Tate and
two with Terry Keller. The latter
who is a light heavyweight, boxed
the second and fifth rounds to give
Tate a rest. Dempsey was on top of
Tate from the start and the giant
negro received a punching that he,
did not anticipate. One righthand
uppercut nearly lifted him off his
feet. After the boxing, Dempsej
shadow boxed for fifteen minutes and
then punched the bag until the rope
broke. * ,
Jack Kearns, manager of Demp
sey, plans to gradually switch his
protege's hours of working so that
he will become hardened to the heat
of midday. Kearns realizes that
when Dempsey and Wtllard get into
the ring July 4, that day may be
burning hot and that Dempsey will
be obliged to stand up under the
heat. He said that Dempsey should
do all of his boxing under the same
conditions likely to prevail on Inde
pendence Day, but believes there will |
be plenty of time for him to become |
familiar with the effects of the sun.
Boxing in the heat. Trainer De Forest
fears, will decrease Dempsey's weight
too rapidly.
The Army, Navy and Civilian
Board of Boxing Control, numbering
among its members several govern
ors, army and naval officers and
representative citizens, to-day ans
wered the protest of the Federated
Church of Ohio against the match.
The letter was addressed to Edward
R. Wright, secretary of the organiza
tion, at Cleveland.
"The Government made boxing an
integral part of the training of sol
diers for war, which resulted in a
great revival of the sport," the letter
reads in part, "For every single per
son opposed to boxing in Ohio, and
in all parts of America, we are con
vinced that there are a thousand de
voted followers of the sport to whom
the "p r oP° se< i match will be a source
of innocent and pleasurable enter-1
tainment and we cannot see any rea- |
son why it should be denied them any
more than we could see the justice
of interfering with any of the relig
ious entertainments which you fre
quently organize in conjunction with
your church.
"If you will pardoh our saying so,
your opposition is a half a century
behind the times. We consider that
those who are opposing this match
are incurring grave responsibility.
As such opposition can only react to
the detriment of religion in the minds
of millions of men who can see no
harm in two exponents of the highest
skill in a given sport, engaging in a
contest for supremacy. We have
read the rules of the Toledo Boxing
Commission governing public con
tests in that city, and we have no
hesitation in saying that they are a
model of what such rules should be."
The section which has so aroused
the sportsmen of the State wishes
to make It unlawful for any one to
fish on lands "within one-half mile
of any open stream, the water of
which Is used for domestic purposes
by the public generally."
The effect bf such an absurd law
would bar the sportsman from fish
ing even in the Susquehanna or its
tributaries and would call forth so
many complications as could be set
tled by no jurisdiction.
Medals and Trophies
For Saturday's Meet
on View at Bogar's
If you are passing the Bogar
sporting store, in Market Square to
day, do not neglect to peek in the
window and see the splendid array
of trophies and medals which will
go to the winners on Saturday after
noon next when Harrisburg holds its
annual Interscholastic track and
field meet on the island. The com
mittee here spared no expense in
making the prizes worth while bat
tling for, and V. Grant Forrer, sec
retary of the Harrisburg Track Ath
letic committee, predicts that the
contests will be of the keenest, in
spite of the fact that Tech stands
so far above others in her records.
There are three medals for each
individual event, a gold one for first,
silver for second and bronze for
third. There is also, aside from the
shield which goes to the school win
ning the meet, a handsome runner
up trophy and a cup which will be
presented to the highest individual
point scorer.
It is impossible at this date to say
exactly what schools will compete.
Last week's postponement on ac
count of the field being deluged with
water may have side-tracked some
of the entries, and to-day Mr. Ferree
had not heard from Carlisle, Lewis
town and Lansford.
The big event is likely to be some
thing of a triumph for local athletes,
and Carl Beck is all primed to put
forth his best efforts, while Hoff
sommer, who showed speed at Phil
adelphia, will be at his best for the
middle and long-distance runs.
