: NEW YORK, Dec. 25. A New
Year's shakeup- In the organiza
tion of the New; York Athletic com
mission boxing control today waa
forecast Monday when it became
known definitely that William
Muldoon, ; chairman of the com
mission for. the past two years
would retire from office when his
term expires January 1.
Besides Muldoon, two pther of
ficials of the commission are stat
ed to relinquish their posts, it
was said authoritatively.: . One is
Frnk Dwyer of Genera, who with
riuldoon and Frank E. bower of
Brooklyn, composed v the ' actual
commission. . . The others John
Vanderbush of Schenectady, a
Muldoon has had a stormy ca
reer as head of the commission.
His so-called edicts when he dom
inated the ring game often came
under the fire of critics, who ac
cused him off overstepping his
authority, . Among these decis
ions, one barring a proposed' Jack
Dempsey-Harry Wills heavyweight
championship match and, another
about a year ago prohibiting
Dempsey from engaging in any
title contests' here, were promin
ent. Muldoon also figured in deprlv
ing several world's champions of
title recognition in New York state
at various times for failure times
to accept challenges.

. mas . Contest
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 25. In a
tard fought contest here today the
Haskell ' Indians of Lawrence,
Kas.; defeating -an eleven repre
senting the Olympic1 club of San
Francisco by a 7 to 6 score. The
Indians apparently outplayed the
Northern California team in every
department of the game but show
ed an inability to amass a large
number of points. : "' .
Both teams made their scores in
.the first period. The redskins by
far -accumulated greater yardage,
making 20 first downs to but five
for the Olympics. In the fret half
of the game Haskell had the ball
the major part of the time and
used straight football throughout.
The second half became a punt
ing and forward passing duel in
which the Indian team gained ad
vantage in punting but which was
offset by the forward passing of
the Olympic men. The Levi broth
ers, John and George Carpenter,
and Elkins starred for the Indians
while the northern California team
substituted so many players that
the work of no one man was out
standing. A 25-yard pass and a
series of line bucks in which John
Levi went over for a" touchdown,
was responsible for "Haskell's
core a few minutes after "the
tame started. The goal was con
verted. : A " short time later San
Francisco had ' a" - chance to tie
when a Haskell man. fumbled .a

.Loss of Tesrean for this game
would be one of the hardest blows

There Is;; Also,
Note this important difference in the way gasolines ex
plode. One kind explodes instantaneouslyr-ceforiafes.
It depends upon a single crash to pound the piston
down.: ' ' v; ' ; ' ' '.
Compression is limited by the tendency of such gaso
line to explode prematurely. This means. loss of power
and efficiency. ' ' : . i
It means increased vibration also, thus more wear arid
tear. Some explosives .would work: this way.- on guns, to
the ruination of the guns. ' 1
-The Prolonged Thrust
Union Gasoline explodes in a different way-Mike smoke
less powder in big guns with a progressive and sustained
explosion non-detonating. "
It thrusts the piston down with a powerful but con
tinuous impulse. " ; ; ! ,;. .
This permits higher compression, for, as authorities know, com
pression is limited by the tendency of a gasoline to detonate.
Sp more power and higher efficiency result-from Union iVbn
Detonating Gasoline. Smokeless powder is used in big guns be
because it doesn't detonate and its better power carries the projec
tiles farther. :. '
Snap In The Pickup
This increased smoother power in motors means more speed and
a stronger rush in the pickup. ' ' ; , ; '
You find more power on the hills a new "lift"r with no "knock
ing" due to gnsoline. ' : . , , , , .
The sustained impulse reduces vibration, which means less wear
and tear. .,..: ,,:.:-.
And the higher all-'round efficiency means . increased fuel
economy. ' ' ' '.
So Union Non-Detonating Gasoline affects your car In several
desirable and important ways. - -' V
- Union is always uniform.. It doesn't disintegrate, thus doesn't
deteriorate in storage. A11 the power that , is put' into it at the
Union plants is delivered when you want it in your car.
