Johnny QUI, without putting forth
any great efforts, last night placed
the "Kayo" sign on Cyclone Scott, of
l'hiladelphla-Boaton-Butto, Mont.,
fame. This boy under Joe Conroy,
went down In the fourth round for
the count. QUI could have finished
him in the first If he so desired. Fight
fans who filled the Olympla A. C., hall
at Steelton, wondered how Scott ever
won any records. Someone shouted
"Joe Conroy gave him all the records
htt ever had," and a generai opinion
prevailed that it was a good answer.
It has often been said that Johnny
Gill will not meet any boy in his
class. Since he has become a Steelton
fixture Gill has been trying to get
fighters to meet him In the ring, but J
they all back out. However. Just to]
prove that Gill is honest in his state- |
roents, announcement was made last j
night that Jack Britton, the cham
pion would meet Gill at Steelton on j
New Years Dry.
Few Blows Struck
There were few blows struck in the ]
wind-up battle, last night. Gill ae- i
knowledged that Scott was an un- ]
known fighter, and the local boy play- |
cd his opponent until he solved some i
Of his tactics. When Gill landed a |
blow it was a hard one. Scott was j
nlmost perfect on clinches. It was in j
the third round that Gill got busy I
and the bell prevented a finish '
then. Everybody knew it would come J
In the fourth period. A body blow |
made Scott drop his guard and an up- i
per cut to the jaw sent the alleged ]
three-city hero to the floor for the I
count of ten.
An interesting mixup, and the only j
bout to go the limit was the six-round ]
battle between Joe Carson, of I.an- j
caster and Paddy Sylvester of Phila- (
drlphia. After Carson had forced thai
fighting for three rounds Sylvester i

Chicago, l>ec. 23.—Club owners in

do not have to look any farther than
i 'hit-ago if they desire a capable man
to supplant Garry Herrmann as
chairman of the commission. There
is a man here who saved baseball
from going to the rocks, knows
the game from A to /. tvho is hon .
est and fearless and who has follow - ;
ed the sport ever since he was knee
high to a grasshopper. is a man
who is probably more familiar with
the workings of baseball Hj an ; !
other man not affiliated with a c u
or league, and one who probably!
would be pleased to accept the P"®'" I
tion as chairman of the commission
if he thought it would save the garnr (
from future troubles and from los- ,
ing the prestige it now possesses.
The man referred to is Judge Ken
osaw Mountain Landis. who deelar- .
ed, when told that he was one of the I
men selected by the committei up
pointed to find capable indlviduals
from whom the. leagues are to
choose, that in view of the mam ]

from the bleachers and elsewhere .
around the park, he could not sa

Would Be Necessary to
Hire Bookkeeper
Xew York, Dec. 2 3.—A1l kinds of
j wild suggestions come with the post
j mortem of season sports,
j When baseball died some inspired
| with the well known desire to ele
vate the "grand old Rational pas
lime" insisted that trick pitching lie
Hardly had the air been out of the
last football when the good angels
j of the gridiron saw a chance to rem
j edy the "good old college game."
Reformers want, a touchdown
: from straight football to fcount for
more than one from a recovered
] fumble, an intercepted forward pass
] or a blocked kick.
The rules committee hardly will
consider that for a minute. A bit of
legislation of tliat kind could be
made ridiculous.
Would Need Bookkeeper,
j Suppose a player on the defense in-
I tercopted a forward pass and made
. his way through the entire opposi
i lion until it was a cinch to cross the
j line. Instead of going over the goal
line and scoring a smaller number
of points he could ground the pig
skin on the 14-inch line and have it
"blown up" across by straight foot- j
ball for more points on the next!
There is a suggestion for a tabul
ated zone system of scoring goals
from the field. A goal from the 50-
yard line would count more than one ]
boosted.over from the 40-yard lne
and so on.
| That would require a set of book- j
keepers and a staff of engineers to
calculate down ton fraction from
just what part of terra flrma the '
ball was kicked.
Several big teams lost games last :
season by the failure to kick a goal
from touchdown. Now they want
that play abolished on the claim that
it gives an unfair advantage to a
team with a kicker.

People who look upon ring battles

j when he died his statue was placed

of kingp.
Crowned Willi Wreaths
"Theagenes was crowned with the
! the wreath of victory fourteen hun

I member, too, that in those days of

bloody bend was unbowed in the
tournaments of nine Nemaen games,
ten Isthmian games, three Pythian
games and two Olympiads.
The pancratium was a horrible
! contest. It was a right to death
j without weapons. The contestants
! —absolutely naked fought each
other with animal-like ferocity with
every means In their power. There |
were no rules, as nothing was bar

as he failed to pay this fine for a
number of years, he was. barred
from competition at Olympia, which
accounts for his participation in the
other games of the time such as the
Pythian, Nemaean and Isthmian.
Theagenes was dangerous, even
after death. Even his statue killed
an opponent. There Is an account
of how a Jealous boxer so violently I
hated Theagenes that he would go !
