The featherweight limit in boxing
has grown in leaps and bounds. Some
30 years ago it was- 115 pounds, and,

Then Skelly opines that he and George
Dixon fought the last real feather
weight battle in New Orleans years
and years a-go, with the weight 115
The 122-pound limit, according to
Skelly, came in about 32 years ago.

GAMBLING BASEBALL CURSE
National League President Fights
Evil Among Players.
"Gambling is baseball's curse,"
comments William F. Baker, presi
dent of the Philadelphia National
league club. "Every means at our
disposal is being employed to kill it
in its every form, from watering on
the results of games you're going to
play in down to penny-ante in the
Pullman sleeper, with everybody else
trying to sleep. I mean, of course,
gambling by the players.
"The case of Tom Seaton and
Casey Smith wilPhave a salutary ef
fect. They must have had conclusive
evidence about those fellows. Usually
in big leagues the evidence has been
so shadowy that it was dangerous to
make any definite charges, though
the magnates were absolutely sure
of their ground."
Rickey Has Lazy Pitchers.
I have three Ditchers on mv team
who are hustlers and anxious for the
success of the team," said Branch
Rickey of the Cardinals some time
back, "and I have three who have
ability, but are indifferent and lazy.
I am not going to keep those fellows
long. They will loaf at the expense of
some other club unless they show a
reversal in spirit. Since making the
remark iiickey nas disposed of sev

pitchers on his staff.

BIG CROWD HEARS SERMON
Prognostication Based on Sacrifice
or Abraham In 2 035 B. C.
World War Foretold.
Something unusual is due to strike
this old world in about five years.
The day of the resurrection is near-
mg and Bible prophecy places the
time at 1925. Such was the declara
tion of Rev. M. L. Hurr of Brooklyn,
N. Y., a leader of the International
Bible Students' association.more com
monly known as the Russcllites, In
an address given last night in the
Woodmen temple teefore an audience
which taxed the capacity of the hall.
Dr Hurr is on a tour of the Pacific
coast for the creed sect which he
Millions who are now living already
have achieved eternal life, for all
practical purposes, the speaker fur
ther elucidated, for if the resurrec
tion occurs in five years and the
dead return to earth at that time to
enjoy everlasting life, then it natu
rally follows that those millions now
living who do not die between now
and 1925 will receive the inheritance
of the new order without passin
through that strange experience of
death and the resurrection.
Skepticism Warned Against.
"The longing in the human heart
to have the loved ones back with us
is to be answered, according to Bible
prophecy." the speaker declared. "The
dead are to be returned from the
grave and the earth is to be restored
to the perfectfon of the Garden of
Eden. When but a few short years
from now you read in the daily pa
pers of the appearance of certain
unusual men in Palestine with
strange and Godlike powers who
claim to be Moses and Abraham and
Daniel and others, do not be skep
tical, but realize that the time is
at hand for deliverance of your loved
ones from the tomb."
The creed of the Russellites, as
propounded by Dr. Hurr last night,
is alleged to be based upon careful
study of the Bible, and holds that
the world is to experience redemption
within five years. The end of the
world, as ordinarily referred to, is
not, to occur, but the present world
system is to be discontinued and
a heavenly state established on this
earth, which will Include such fea
tures as eternal life and world per
fection. The speaker scored spiritual
ism, asserting that the Bible teaches
that there are certain evil spirits.
black angels of an unseen world,
who delight to plague the living by
impersonating the dead and pretend
ing to send messages from the dead
to the living, either -directly or
through so-called spiritualistic med
iums. Key to Date Found.
The collective ages of five animals
which Abraham offered as a sacrifice
to God is the key to the date of 1925
as the time when the trumpets of the
resurrection shall blow, according to
the speaker. In the year 2035 B. . C.
God offered Abraham an inheritance
of all the land of Palestine, he said,
and Abraham in gratitude offered
a sacrifice of a lamb, a heifer and a
goat, each three years old. and a
pigeon and a dove, that had each
reached the age of one year. The
combined age of the animals was thus
11 years. Under the promise Abra
ham was thus to receive his inherit
ance in 11 "times." Each Biblical
"time" is given as 360 years and thus
the Jewish father was asked to wait
3960 years before coming into his
own. Starting with 2035 B. C. a
period of 3960 years would come to
an end in 1925, the date when not
only Abraham but the entire human
race Is to come Into its own. Through
a somewhat similar reasoning, the
speaker asserted, Bible students had
been able to forecast the beginning
of the world war in 1914. dating from
the prophet Daniel's statement that
the Gentile period would continue ior
seven "times' from tne oaie ouo n. ..

"If we are ordered off the Polo

their word to the Yankees," said Col

New York American league club.
"When the Federal league peace
settlement was made early in 1916,
one of the stipulations was that the
New York Nationals should grant us
a " long-term lease on the Polo

lntra-mural athletics have filled i
large place this last year in the phys

professor of physical education, who
has been director tms year, and rc. u
"Coley" Coleman, assistant in the de

ule of inter-class and inter-organization
competition that has included
practically every man on the campus.

sidered practicable on account of the
cost of equipment and the fact that
Injuries are more apt to result where
men are not in strict training for the

cross-country running occupied the
attention of a great many men, who
signed up for this sport as equivalent

Local fraternity and national fra
ternity groups were organized .into
competition and a unai aii-organiza
tion cross-country race was held just
before Thanksgiving, resulting in
win for the Aztec fraternity. A silver

relieved of the incubus of the nick
name that has been attached to him.
Time was when Howard was younger
and filled with the pep and jazz of
youth. Possibly the monai-her might
have been appropriate in those days.
However, all reports are that F.lliott
is one of the best behaved players in
the big leagues, and tho aspersion
cast on him by the nickname seems
out of place.
The following story is told of John
Ball, eight times British amateur golf
champion: On chancing to visit a lit
tle place in Wales he was so struck
by the picturesque character of the
course that he thought he would like
to play a round, not so much for the
golf as for the scenery. In the club
house the only person he found was
a venerable old man, who. without
inquiring into the identity of the vis
itor, promptly agreed to a match.
They played lev-el.
The elderly man did not profess to
be a great golfer, and as Ball took
the game light-heartedly, enjoying
the mountain views and knocking the
ball around, the local man was one

into a chasm 50 yards in front of the

over the pit and won by two holes.
By the time they had reached the
clubhouse a good many members were
present and the champion was rec
ognized. "You've been doing a very bold
thing this morning." said one of them
to the old man. "What did you get
"I didn't get beaten at all," was the
reply. "I won by two up. And we
were playing level."
"What?" demanded the Interroga

playing John Ball?'
"I don't know, who ne is," remarked
the amiable old party in maner en
