Mascott Annexes New
Title from Canada's
Billy Mascott won all of the way
from Charlie Davidson it the smoker
last, night on his aggressiveness as the
Seattle youth crowled into a crouch like
a turtle into a shell and refused to come
out.' .He did stick his nose out once
and Billy hit it and then he crawled
back iii again and waited for a thun
der shower. Davidson was not hurt to
any extent but he did not put up the
game fight that Jockey Bennett did in
: the last smoker. Davidson is a tough
(youngster and might go well over the

speed and hitting power that make the;
eignt round goes jspuiar.
The first round was about even with
Davidson covering well and Billy peck
ing around on the outside and Davison
was-given credit for caution. He car
ried his caution into the second round
and this was a repetition of the first
except that Mascott had a darker shade
in this round. Davidson weathered sev
eral storms of rights and left jabs in
the next two rounds and always came
back smiling but refused to lead. In the
fifth round Davidson led out and they
flew into a furious mix with both wil
ling mixers and for a minute the crowd
yelled like Villistas but outside of a
few ' similar flashes the Seattle youth
was satisfied to block. He always
had a haymaker on tap but none of his
vicious swings were able to land on the

SCENE FROM DIMPLES
The next release on the Metro pro
grain will be "Dimples," a five act
feature in which little Mary Miles Min-
ter, the charming and vivacious young
artcess is seen in the stellar role. This
production was made by the Columbia
Pictures Corporation for Metro, and
will be seen here at the Ye Liberty on
Sunday and Monday. Miss Minter is
supported by an unusually strong cast,
including Thomas J. C'arrigan, her new
leading man; Peggy Hopkins, William
Cowper, Charlotte Shelby, Ferd Tid
marsh, Harry Ford, William Rausher,
Schuyler Ladd, John I. Donough, ami
Mae Do Metz.
The story is an exceedingly interest
ing one and was adapted for the screen
especially for Miss Minter, by Harry
0. Hoyt, the foremost scenario writer in
America, from tho storv bv Mary

ing like piston rods. Wilson weighed
in at about 190 while Sommers t'ppe"d
the beam at 103. Wilson took the bout
on a minute's notice with no special
training and "ut up a game fight but
Sommers outboxed him and stepped
away from his haymakers. They were
real liavmakers too and if one of them
had landed on Sommer's jaw it would
have' been curtains. ' However, Al
showed hiself to be cool under fire and
he came out of the mixes in good shape
and forced the big man to the ropes
time and again. This was a lively
fracas and the crowd witnessed the best
match that Sommers has boxed in this
city. This was the first time that he
has met a man here who would comiout
anil exchange wallops with him and the
result was all that could be desired.
Herb Savage boxed eight rounds with
Folly Jones,, of Portland, as a prelim
inary. Jones was the better hitter and
had far more ring experience but Sav
age kept coming in for more and did his
best which is all than can be expected.
Savage is above the average of the lo
cal boys as a boxer but when matched
with an experienced mit artist the ad
vantage of actual ring experience shows
up. Savaee is willing and a hard work
er and with more training will be able
to give an argument to some good
The crowd was small at the Bmoker
last night and Manager Bobby Evans
has not decided whether he will at
tempt ,to put on any more smokers or
not but today he is of the opinion that
the support in this city will not justify
the expenditure of any more money to
bring boxers to this city to meet Som
mers or Mascott.

Long, Long Way to Jess9
Jaw Is Tip io Frank Moran
New York, Mar. 18. Towering five
inches above his huge adversary and
possessing a reach five and ono-half
inches longer, Jess Willard has two of
the great defensive works known to
boxing thrown up around his precious
jaw bone. If Frank Moran, a compara
tive midget, is to hang flowers and ivy
on Willard 's nether maxillary he will
have to fairly leap in the air. Six feet
seven inches is the altitude of Big
Jess. Moron's red thatch stands a
mere six feet one inch above the cal
loused soles of iiis battleship feet. And
before he gets near enough to start avi
ating toward Willard 's classic features
the boy from Pittsburgh must wade

inches long, a right respectable pmr of

One of .Moran 's favorite modes of bat
