Creasing of Body To Aid hi
Slipping Out Ot Clinches
Main Offense
By Hal Sheridan.
New Vnrlt, Feb. 10. Nome of the
old (ricks of the ring still are in use
despite the frigid looks of the box
ing public and the new generation of
fighters. Of course, the days when a
boxer could work his u around .to
the wings so some second could slum
him with a board anil put him to sleep,
are past. Hut there are several lead
ing boxers who owe a great deal of
their "cleverness ' to the little mils,
perfectly harmless, probably, bill still
One of the most common of nil is the
use of grease. A fighter who greases
his body can slip in and out of clinches
about ten times as easy as he could

fiasco with Champion Preddie Welsh

as slippery ns an eel. lie appeared
u h faster than he really is and he
got away with it in good shape. The
referee could have disqualified him
had he so minded, but so long as Welsh
or his seconds didn't offer objections
Willie slaved gronsed.
Another aged wheeze still in prac
tice ia that of plastering their hair
down with camphor ice. There are
two objects in this: One that it keeps
tho hair from dropping down o.ver their
eyes, and, two, camphor Ice when in
close proximity to the eyes lias a ten

little. It isn't harmful, but it cer

their heads are close together the
fume nre suro to have some effect.
Many boxers still make use f Stun
ley Kotchcl's old trick. The man-killer
used to rub oil into his pores before
going into the ring. The stuff wasn't
noticeable at first, but when ho began
to perspire he became' the proverbial
"chain of greased lightning," sliding

not available for her own use.
"If the military effect of the Zeppe

thereby saving perhaps thitusanils of

Bombs in War
largely will tend to cluing the luce
and aspect of war; perhaps, therefore,
many non-comtiatants nave neeu allien
in tuis war by Zeppelins us compared
with other engines' of warfare'! How
can you tell, for instance, exactly
where shells from mortars and other
artillery will strike! .Por instance,
shells from the new hrupp gun nre
reported-.to have a range (if 42 kilo
meters. "The purpose of Zeppelins is not
against non-coinbutiints but against
military forces, defended cities ami

" There is proof of this the best

"Prom the standpoint of this lutes'
factor in modern warfare," I asked,
"what, in your ii.iinion, should define
a fit v or town or position that it would

The count stroked his chin nnd sat
a moment seemingly lost in thought.
Then he began:
"Tin" rule is similar to that in land

that a city or town having military

In a subsequent interview Count
Zeppelin talked of Ann ricn and Amer

"Lincoln, tall and gaunt, greeted me
