(l'uite.1 l'ress stuff correspondent.)
New York, Dec. 4. Despite the iuct
that Harry I'ollock. John White .Ti mmv
Johnston and possibly several others
wuo nave not stepped out in public are
after a license to conduct boxing bouts
in Madison Square Garden, Tex Rick-
Ord '.videh known hrnumtn. ufill la
confident the historic enclosure will
fall to his lot. Before the first of the
I year he expects to announce some high
l class bouts.
As was aunounced some time ago by
the L'nited l'ress, Ricknrd has made a
bid for the Garden and at one time had
progressed so far that he expected to
sign the lease. Hitches urose which
prevented and he now is waiting uiitil
after the sale of the building at auction,
which will be dono in foreclosure pro
ceeding 1'riduy of this week.
For the present, the popularity of box
ing and the life of the game in the na
tion's greatest city depends largely upon
what is done with the Garden. It is the
largest enclosure in the city wherein
bouts may be held in winter and its
reputation is so great that it would be
hard to get along without.
Ricknrd 's announcement that his hat
is still in the ring is excellent tidings,
not only for New York fans but for
those all over the country. There is
now no promoter with the' standing of
the man who made it possible for Jack
Johnson to hold the heavyweight cham
pionship. He is the artly real take-a-chauce
promoter now trying to do busi
ncs sand that he will stage some real
bouts if he gets Jladisnn Square Gar
den is a foregone conclusion.
Already Rickard is said to have the
signature of Jess Willard calling for a
bout soon. He made a trip to Chicago a
few days ago to talk things over with
the big champion.

Can't machines make ci
gars quicker than hands?
Yes, but they can't make
them as good. Speed in
cigar-making is a very dan
gerous element. Good cigars
must be made slowly.
Roll the leaf just a bit too tight
and the cigar will not draw freely.
Cigars which do not draw freely sel
dom burn evenly. Often they "gutter"
down the side.
This is one unpleasant smoke
experience you escape when you
smoke the OWL. For the OWL,

Being shaped just right by hand
it draws freely and burns evenly.
The manufacturers of the OWL
use hand -workmanship exclusively

a cigar which will burn right every
