fleets Len Rowland in Open
ing Show of New Associa
tion Next Week
Jackie Clark, middleweight cham
pion of the American Expeditionary
Forces, is to appear In a bout in
this city next week. Clark, who
hails from Allentown, has been
signed up by the Harrisburg Box
ing "Association, an organization af
fected a few days ago, and is to
meet another middleweight fighter
of the same class, Len Rowland, of
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The event is
to be a ten-round one, and will bo
the banner attraction of a four
bout show that is to be conducted
in the Chestnut Street Auditorium
bn Friday night of next week, Sep
tember 26.
The other participants on the bill
have not been definitely decided
upon, but the matches are under
way, and the arrangements will in
nil probability be affected during to
day. It is known that several of the
fighters will be boys from this sec
tion, and the promoters of the bill
give the assurance that all will be
boxers of fair reputation.
Rowland Is Good Boy
While Rowland is not as well
known in this district as Clark is,
his record is, nevertheless, a good
one, and can be compared favorably
with that of Clark, for he has met
n number of the same fighters that
Jackie has gone up against. Row
land's latest tilt of Importance was
with Mike Gibbons a few weeks ago
in Denver, Colorado. The pair went
at it for ten rounds, and the news
paper correspondents at the ring
side were divided in their decisions,
there being several favoring each
of the men, and two calling the fight
a draw.
This fact is sufficient to demon
strate that Rowland is no low
rater, for Gibbons is still In condi
tion to give a very good account of
himself. Rowland has fought ten
rounds with Jeff Smith and has also
gone an equal number of rounds
with K. O. Laughlin, John Griffith
and Harry Greb.
Jackie Clark has figured In bouts
in this section of the State, but net
for the post several years, he hav
ing spent some time overseas as a
member of the United States Armv.
While in France. Clark carried off
the middleweight championship
honors of the American Expedition
ary Forces during the tournament
that was conducted after the sign
ing of the arpiistice.
One of Clark's most Important
fights was a twenty-round draw
with Harry Greb, Jackie, at present,
is one of the leading contenders for
the world's middleweight title, now
held by Mike O'Dowd, an American.
New Promoters
The Harrisburg Boxing Associa
tion, which will conduct the Clark-
Rowland bout, has two Harrisburg
ens at its head, Cornelius Nelly be
ing the president and J. D. McCon
nell the secretary and treasurer.

First Game on
October First
In all probability —It haa not
been officially settled —the first
game of the Red-White Sox
world series will be played on
October 1. Several members of
National Commission favor Sep
tember SO. The schedule will end
on September 28. Thus each
team will have two days of rest
and plotting before the big clash
is on. Also this will allow two
days for fans to fan and to pre
pare for an early start to the
scene of battle, wherever that
is to be. All games will start at
2.00 p. m.
These men have secured the serv
ices of Charles Ettinger, of Allen
town. as a talent scout, and Et
tinger will figure largely in the ar
rangement of the various matches
for the organization's shows.
At present it is planned to eon
duct shows on an average of one
every two weeks during the winter
months, and it is probable that all
will be held in the Chestnut Street
Auditorium, where the first is to
take place. Arrangements have been
made by which the ring will be
placed in the center of the hall, and
seats will be provided for more
than a thousand persons for each
Well-Known Managers
Ettinger, who is making up the
most of the matches for next week's
show, is credited with lining tip the
two star middleweights for the fea
ture bout. He is the manager of
Clark, and tinder his direction
Jackie has gained a reputation that
is regarded as an excellent one In j
the class In which he works, the
middleweight division.
Both Nelly and McConnell arc
well known In local athletic cir
cles. The latter was connected for
several years as a player with the
Harrisburg Independent basketball
team. He also played with the Cen
tral High school varsiety quintet for
several years, and has also a good
record in other branches of scholas
tic athletics.
Local Business Man to
See World's Series Games

the world's series games in Cincin
nati. However, but one has reported
favorably on tickets. George Harry,

Cincinnati Club Will Gladly
Take Back Those That
Cannot Be Used
Cincinnati, Sept. 17.—Murmurs
from the fans concerning the way
the series tickets are to be sold,
continue to flock in, and the fol
lowing paragraphs from & recent
letter are typical of the general
"How does Mr. Herrmann expect
the average fan to see the games
when It is necessary to buy tickets
for each of the first three games
at Cincinnati? If the fan is an
ordinary workingman, he will have
to lay off, and you have to show
me the boss who will stand for a
three-day lay off. While it is true
that one of these dates may fall on
Sunday, it also may not. The
chances of an office man getting off
for three days are still slimmer.
Perhaps I am prejudiced because I
cannot see myself getting a chance
to see the games, for I know I
won't be able to get off these days,
although I, positively would be out
to see one and possibly two games
if tickets could be bought for the
days desired."
Says Herrmann.
Answering the protests of those
fans who object to the rule that
purchases of reserved seats must be
for three games. President Herr
mann said: "The club directors do
not want to make any ruling that
would bar the humblest fan but
are trying to accommodate every
one it is possible to accommodate.
The first the public should remem
ber that the rule requiring the pur
chase of tickets for three games
is a rule of the National commis
sion, and the two competing clubs
have nothing to say about it The
commission adopted that plan to
protect the public as much as pos
sible from the ticket scalpers, and
it has worked fairly well.
Regarding the loyal fan who says
' he could get away from work' to
> see one or two games, but not three,
• let me state: '"lite Cincinnati club
gladly will buy back any tickets for
reserved scats after the first game.
If a patron of the club buys for the
first three games, then finds that he
can see only the opening contest,
; he can get the full amount he paid
| for the other two games by apply
' ing at our offices. But I am sure
| that anyone will find that for each
i reserved scat ticket he has there
will he two or three other fans
i eager to buy.
! "For those fans who expect to
; purchase the $2 or $1 tickets, the
(club is figuring to do something
j that no other world series contend
er has done. If possible, we will
place these tickets on sale the day
I befre each game, not only at the
Redland Field ticket office, but
probably at two or three other
places In widely separated sections
of the city, so that none need go
a long distance to get a ticket If
that can he done, the sale of these
tickets will begin at 10 a. m. the
I day of the game. And we will not
I sell beyond the capacity of the
j park."

Cincinnati Wins Out in
Game With New York;
Reds Win Championship
| Cincinnati, Sept. 17. By beating
New York yesterday before a crowd
of 18,000 persons the Cincinnati Reds
cinched the pennant in tre National
League, the first which it has ever
won in that organization. The Reds
have seven games to play, and even
if they would lose all of them while
the Giants won all of the eleven
games .remaining on their schedule,
Cincinnati would finish one game
ahead. The score was 4 to 3.
Reuther pitched the full game for
the Reds and was hit hard, being fre
quently saved by sensational support.
Toney pitched well for New York
after the first inning, but his support
was faulty. He was taken out in the
seventh and Nehf finished the game
without allowing a hit.
New York scored two in the first
inning on a pass to Burns and singles
by KaufT and Statz. In the last half
of the same round the Reds scored
three runs on Fletcher's wild throw
on Rath's grounder and hits by
Roush, Kopf and Neale.
New York tied it in the fourth on
successive hits by Burns. Kauft and
Frisch. A fine throw to the plate by
Roush prevented Kauft from counting
when he tried to come home from sec
ond on Frisch's hit to center.
Ruether was fairly effective during
the last half of the game. The Reds
won in the seventh, which Schreibcr
opened with ft double over first base.
Rarlden bunted a fly toward first base
which Kelly muffed, and then threw
to third in an attempt to get Schreib
er. but was too late. Toney was then
relieved by Nehf. and Schreiber scor
ed the winning run
grounder to Doyle, on which Rariden
was forced at second.
