in which she hus appeared this sea
son. Gloria Swann iKlsie Ferguson!,
while in Judge Malvin's auto, nearly
runs down Larry K. Gibson, a blind
soldier, in his wheel chair. The two
meet frequently thereafter and Gloria
falls in love with him. Judge Malvin,
loving Gloria, alludes to her soldier
as "t.he blind wreck," but the girl
lis not to be won over. When Larry's
finances get low, Gloria takes some
; songs he has written to a music pub
' iisher. and later, being herself a
cabaret singer, gets a hearing for
(them at the Palm Garden. The songs
j make a hit, and Larry signs a con
[ tract with the publisher, instead of
starting life with Judge Malvin in a
: mansion, Gloria begins it with Larry
:in a boardinghouse. Both are happy.
: Larry is reconciled to the loss of his
sight, for he sees through "the eyes
of the soul."

Klein Chocolate Lads Beat

A large crowd witnessed the bat

17 hits. Wrightstone and Walsh led
with three and four.
Glenn Killinge r received another
box of Klein's almond bars for malt

the circuit swat, for which ho will
receive a box of Klein's almond bars
on Wednesday, when Klin* lines up
against the strong Quarryville team.

Catcher Trout, for he sure has a

with Cressona. is canceled, and there
will'be no game at the home grounds
on that date, but Manager Hracken
ridge ia authority for telling the
public what will happen on that day
at Newark, where the candy makers
hold their annual convention: "Is
Klizabethtown going to be repre
sented in baseball there? Well, I
should say so. The undisputed
champs of the Klein Chocolate Com
pany baseball team is going to be
the one club. The other one the
committee will not mention, but they
got this far, that Manager Bracken
ridge of the Klein Chocolate Com
pany team has a letter from the
chairman of the committee stating
the team that is to face the strong
Klein team can be beaten only by
the N. Y. Giants, but Manager Brack
enridge says ho will put his club
against the New York giants any
time, so according to that, the Klein
Chocolate Company team will have
a good chance to win.

Up-to-Date Peek at
Jess Willard Training
"* ll %#• jj
This photograph, just received from Toledo, shows Jess Willard
training for his bout with Jack Dempsey. He is seen here boxing with
Jack llcnipel, one of his sparring partners. The camera caught the
heavyweight champion in one of his characteristic attitudes leaning
far back with his guard high.
Sad news for thousands of fans,
who intended reaching Toledo for
the big light in Pullman cars, and!
to-day an army of citizens were busy
trying to arrange transportation via
motor, for Walker D. Hines, director
of railways for Uncle Sam, canceled
the plan for 70 special trains to
carry the -crowds, giving as the rea
son, the necessity of having all |
trains for the handling of 375,000
troops returning from abroad. It is
believed that the Federal decision
will also interfere with about 100
other fight excursions, planned from
all part of the country. The 70 Pull
man outfits were to tap exclusively
New York and Philadelphia.
The picture printed here to-day
shows that Willard still has plenty
of weight in the midsection, and the
casual observer would certainly say
that If the big fellow ever exposed
as much opening as he does here
Dempsey will l>e in there with a
third fall. latest word from the
training quarters says that Willard
is beginning to get a little tired of!
Joe Barrett, the Steelton boxing
promoter, says he is surely in -the
hands of the jinx, and is wondering
whether luck will change. Several
weeks ago he billed a ten-round
bout here with Low Tendler and
Tendler pulled one over on the vet
eran, but not being a quitter, Joe
engaged the Quartet Hall in Steelton
and had a show booked that was a
hummer from a local point of view,
as four of Harrisburg's best boxers
were, on the card, against a like num
ber of the best in this section. The
card included Sammy Schiff, in the
feature bout of ten rounds against
Young Mahoney, the fast Baltimor
ean; Young (Bull Dog) .Silar in the
semiwindup with Nate Isaacman, a
local favorite; Billy Morton, the
hard-hitting lightweight of this city,
with Paul Wagner, of York, and
Billy Allicks of this city and Young
Wampler, of York, in- the first bout.
Joe thought and had reasons to
think, that every thing would be
clear sailing to-night. The first jolt
he got was while at Union Station,
Saturday, mailing transportation- to
the outside boxers. Crossing the
plaza between two teams Barrett
was kicked on the calf of his right
leg by a horse of huge dimensions
which partly put him out of business.
Following this, when Joe returned to
Steelton an hour later, ho received a
telegram notifying him that Ma
honey wrenched his arm in a bat
tle Friday night in Baltimore in his
fight with Joe Marks, and was com
pelled to quit and, of course, the Bal
timorean could not fulfill his con
tract to box Schiff. Manager Max
Waxman stated he would send
Young Gilly, the southern light
weight champion to take Mahoney's
place or,- the card. Barrett then
lost no time getting in touch with
Schiff and tried to persuade the lo
cal boy to meet Gilly. Schiff re
Barrett says he will now put in
two other boxers, and to show just
how good the man is that Schiff re
fused to meet, he arranged to have
Gilly make his home in Steelton in
the future, and has matched him
with Tim Droney, the Lancaster
lighter, to meet the southerner in
his show next Monday night in a
