Native Son's Dig Lead Is Too Easily
Overcome and Havanana Think
They Have Been Buncoed.
There is a sweet little scandal on
the tropical Isle of Cuba and the natives
of Havana are handing out what is
commonly called. . the "rawsberry" to
the world's champion three-cushion bil
liard player, Alfred De Oro. after his
sensational victory over Charley Otis
last Saturday night. De Oro returned
to the old homestead after an absence
of some 20 years, with the champion
ship emblem pinned on his manly chest.
He was received like a prominent ball
player and soon the good people ex
pressed a desire to see their idol in
action. Thereupon 'a match was ar
ranged with Charley Otis for the cham
pionship, which was to be decided in
three nights' play.
Everybody in Havana turned out to
get a look at the 15u-polnt match. The
Secretary of State or some other high
dignitary was the referee while the
president of the island - occupied a
prominent seat at each game. Excite
ment was at fever heat and every one
was happy when De Oro easily won the
first two sets. But on the third even
ing something happened. Otis started
shooting like a house aYire and over
came the Cuban's early lead. With the
score tied at 149 and Otis at bat, the
Brooklynite looked over a perfect set
up and attempted an impossible shot.
At least, ' the accounts from Havana
say that the shot was impossible. Of
course, he missed and De Oro won the
game In his next shot.
The Cubans were wise but no one
tried to wrap a cue around Charley's
head. They were highly indignant,
however, and believed that they had
been buncoed. According to reports,
the dissatisfaction is so great that
another match is to he played in the

If Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul phan
tom, continues to take on weight as
rapidly as be has done during the past
two months he will soon be heavy
enough to take on Jess Willard. Stick
ing around Camp Dodge, Mike haa
grown so rapidly that he now tips the
beam at a little over 170 pounds. If
he continues to pile on weight as rap
idly during the next four months he
will come close to the 200-pound mark.
Army grub seems to agree with him.
Gibbons has Just returned to the
camp after two weeks' vacation at his
home in St. Paul. Upon his arrival he
stated that his proposed bout with
Packy McFarland Is going through in
February and the only thing that re
mains for the officials who will handle
the bout to do is to get a date In the
Coliseum at Chicago. Mike says that
he has it on good authority that the
bout will be permitted to go on pro
viding the receipts are turned over to
the Red Cross.
McFarland. like Gibbons, is also over
weight. Last reports state that the
Stockyards wonder has reached the
160-pound mark. No wonder he insists
that his bout be limited to four or six
rounds with Mike.
This is a story out of the ordinary:
Battling Levinsky of New York and
Bill Brennan of Chicago put up their
hands for the last time in Boston at
the Grand Opera-house the other night
when, amid a shower of lemons, cigar
butts, apples and other refuHe, to say
nothing of verbal abuse, they attempt
ed to hand the Boston fans one of the
kind of bouts which helped to end the
game in New York.
They were caught early with the
goods and after Referee Flaherty had
several times distinguished himself by
ordering them to either box or get out
of the ring, they put up a few rounds
of real work. It was one of the poor
est exhibitions as a whole ever seen In
Boston for a long time and so raw did
it all appeal to the officials of the
Armory Athletic Club that after the
boxers and their managers had left the
ring they were forever barred from
boxing In that city again.
Brennan refused to go in the ring at
the start unless a draw decision was
declared if both men were on their feet
at the end of the bout.
There was very little fighting and
the prevalent opinion was that it was
a fake all the way.
A bit of fruit winged Jack Brltton,
who was in Levlnsky's corner, in the
chest, while a cigar butt took Brennan
on the cheek. Pennies flew In all di
rections during the contest.
The icy weather in the East has been
the cause of stirring the speed skaters
to activity and general recognition. The
other day in Chicago Bobby McLean
and Oscar Mathiesen raced for what
was termed the world's championship.
Nate Lewis, who Is probably better "
known as the manager of Charley
White and other good fighters, is Mc
Lean's manager. Lewis is now In New
York telling the boys of the great in
terest in the recent race in Chicago.
He said that two days of the match
racing drew 6000 paid admissions.
Now McLean has been matched to
race Norval Baptle in Chicago Monday
night, and Lewis adds that he has of
fers from all over the country for his
man. His visit to New York Is mainly
to arrange a match between McLean
and Morris, Wood, of New York, who
claims the title. The race would be
staged at the Washington Park skat
ing rink in Brooklyn next month.
Wood has taken exception to McLean
calling himself the champion and ar
ranging of terms for a match should
be very easy.
The public Is warned against per
sons writing from our camps and ask
ing for letters for "lonesome soldiers"
who desire correspondence and contributions.
