Mooney monday night s contest through Herb Thompson not being Able co get across to Adelaide in time to meet Albert Lloyd last monday night a the Unley stadium had an of night in consequence. However a Good Bill of fare has been arranged for next monday night when the hard hitting and forceful Southpaw Eddie Butcher will again be seen in action. This time be its billed to meet Charley Mooney a victorian Boxer of Good class. Mooney has several Good victories to his credit. Although Mooney was shaded by Fred Segar in a Points decision last saturday night at. The broken Hill quadrangle he is sure to put up a Good exhibition fully extend Butcher. So far As physique is concerned Mooney is a Good match for Butcher As he is built on similar lines and is a Clever and resourceful Boxer with any amount of Confidence. Good preliminaries have been arranged and taken altogether a Good lib Foht s boxing should be witnessed. Sydney flyweight wins. As a prelude to the wrestling match at the Melbourne stadium on saturday Young Ferris 7.j 1.1, a promising Melbourne weight met Teddy Green 7.114, of new South Wales in a 20 two minute round test. Most of the cleaner boxing in the earlier rounds was done by Ferris who keeping his hands Well up scored heavily with both gloves in particular with a sweeping right uppercut to the soon showed that he had a heavy punch in his right and Only Ferris s sound defence prevented an Early Knock out. 1 he visitor measured out punishment with smashing swings but Roon after 1 he eighth round it was noticeable to at his right was out of action \ through injury received in i Viii one of his punches. Unperturbed he undertook to out Box Ferris with his left leading cleanly into the Young v Cibrian until Ferris s face was bruised and swollen and his breathing affected tentatively in the thirteenth and fourteenth v rounds. Green tried his right again but thereafter contented himself by consistent leading with the left and hooking or swinging that Glove to the head. Still the exchanges seemed to favor the Melbourne boy and it was somewhat surprising therefore to find or. Quirk selecting Green As the Warinor to. The end of the Trehy refunds probably Green s extraordinary spurt in the last round in which he com 1 my outfoxed Ferris helped to gain for him the verdict. Young beats Locke. At the Sydney stadium on saturday night Frank Locke 10.2was Defeated by Harry Young 1 0.2v on a technical knockout in the. Sixth round. The result was unexpected. From the outset Locke forced the fighting and seemed to be having the letter of matters. Inthe sixth ivs Ivl. However he was on the floor five times. The referee stopped the contest and Young was declared the Winner. The old timers. in the of go witness presents a Good Case in favor of old time methods of training and preparing horses for their races. He states the modern Trainer who laughs at. Id time methods instead of analysing them to find and use the Virtues they possessed is the Trainier whose horse generally finishes Down the course at the end of a Lon distance race unless he happens to Fluke a great natural stayer. To laugh at old time training methods is to laugh at the greatest Trainer of the present Day r. J. Mason who Rode the Winner of the Dunedin cup of s74. To laugh at old time me hods is to laugh at Stuart Waddell who trained Razz pc dazzle and with a Pinch of Luck beat gloaming in the Challenge stakes. Both these modern and very successful trainers must be marked Down As old time men and it would require the courage born of ignorance for any one to suggest that they do not know their business. Add to these two men who have proved that they know How to prepare a horse to run from a Yard to a year and find the Man who came in yesterday to compare with them and their results. The modern Trainer May be an adept at training an owner but the owner who stays longest in the game is the Man who has sufficient Wisdom to give his horses to the Trainer w7 to has been in the game and knows How to modernise old time Jack Meyer 34 a protest. New Adelaide stylish suits from 8 to 10 guineas All work under personal supervision Jack Meyer. Latest season materials. Another of Waddy s Lemons beaten. At the Brisbane stadium last saturday night Wally Walker 12.10 walloped big Jim Flett 13.9 pretty severely. Flett went Down for eight seconds in the fifth round a and an examination by a doctor proved that his jaw had been fractured on both sides. Time Flett gripped the fact that he is Only a punching Ball to men we have heard of before. Fred Segar beats Charley Mooney. There was a Good crowd at the broken Hill quadrangle last saturday night to witness the fight Between Fred Segar and Charley Mooney of Melbourne. Both put up a great fight and there was Little to choose Between the pair at the finish of the Twenty rounds. However. What Little there was went to Segar and he was awarded the thick end of the stake. Although Segar put up such a bewildered showing against Butcher recently his Conquest Over Mooney demonstrates that he was absolutely outclassed by Butcher s Southpaw tactics. Segar is a Good Boxer and there is not the slightest doubt that he would Render a Good account of himself against any orthodox Boxer at his weight but he would never be any Good to Butcher. Chilian heavyweight s. Win. A recent Cable tells us that Romero Rojas the chilian challenger of Jack Dempsey for the heavyweight championship of the world knocked out Jack Sharkey a Boston heavyweight in the eighth round of a ten round bout. Leroy out pointed. Charlie ring out pointed the belgian Leroy in a fifteen rounds contest at Black fairs. It was an excellent fight. This win should come As a Good boost for ring in the big smoke. Wrestling Miller beats Lim Utkin. At the Melbourne stadium last saturday night. Walter Miller and Peter Lim Utkin put up a great struggle which lasted for an hour and Twenty minutes. Miller secured the winning fall and received the glad hand Good and loud for so Doin he was giving away 4 st. In weight to the finnish giant we turned out anything but the did wrestler reckoned by Many newspaper writers. He knows a whole 3ot. About Trie Tine Points of the game and that made Miller s win All the More meritorious. The minor round. The first round of matches was finished on saturday with the result As was expected that souths norths wests and Glenelg have been eliminated from the 1924 contests. Details of the positions Are Toltus stuns. Norwood ports. In lulls norths wests Glenoid 1\ w. I 11 14 i 14 if 14 s j 4 Jil 4 14 3. L _ 14 Points i Rem. L. It. J of. A.

The Honor held by the Torrens has been Well deserved and the advantage thus gained will stand them in Good Stead in their final fight. On saturday the game they played was a vast improvement in cohesive movement upon that of the previous week and the next time Norwood meet them the easterners will have to Plav a different team. Undoubtedly next saturday will be the Torrens biggest problem. They again meet nor Woods and this match will serve to illustrate the strength of both teams. The second and fourth teams Are sturts and ports respectively but neither appear to have much Chance with either Norwood or Torrens. Unless sturts play a greatly improved game ports should win and in the flush of Victory might prove themselves capable of fully extending next saturday s winners but on present showing they do not look like carrying off the 1924 premiership. Among the first five Tea is on the season s list there has Leen shown a remarkable evenness. Between the second with 20 Points and fifth with is very Little has decided on the composition of the souths finished the season with a remarkable rattle defeating two of the teams ahead of them in the last two matches but they left their run too late. As it is Only a matter of percentage eliminates them. Compared with port s figures their kicking throughout the season has been poor. The Torrens. The Mino premiership has been Well won. It was one of the hardest Battles of late years. Right up to the last match there was a slight uncertainty of the final result but the winners have obtained the title in no undecided manner. They started off the season Well and gained the leading position in a great game with sturts. When the Brilliant Unley ites were at their ton. From the time of this Victory they have not lost their position in fact Only on one occasion have they Ever been greatly extended in their matches. Their chances of going top Are Good for if Thev suffer a defeat in the first of the finals they can com again fresh after a rest to meet a team which has to win three very stiff matches to carry them up the final rungs of the premiership ladder. While it is quite on the cards that nor Woods might beat them next saturday yet the toughness of the Battle through will have a great wearing effect upon the the legs and i fully anticipate that the 1924 shield will Bear the first of Many Torrens premierships in the immediate future seasons. Kensington Oval. The Torrens Success is a result Many predicted once the team played and trained away from their previous foolish Little ground and their Success is a great argument in favor of More standardisation in the playing areas. From statistics available Only one Oral now remains among those in general use that cannot be brought a More uniform ground area to at is Norwood. The Norwood Oval is quite All right As regards length but the Width is not there and cannot be obtained. The Mound space at the present is the absolute minimum. The Dunlev Oval requires greater la the. But this can be obtained. Next season with the new Rule regarding Boundary play the game on the Norwood Oval will become n farce and will resolve into a match of free kicks. Perhaps the league a ill Amend the matter by arranging the Norwood matches on the Kensington of Al which ground is available to replace the Norwood. The question of the improvement of the former ground is Well in hand and with the status and assistance Given by a Grade football this Fine ground " r Ould provide a Means to More uniformity in playing Arenas besides the better catering for the Large crowds which weekly follow the Norwood team. The v e nor Woods Are r Ainar the is the largest crowd. The Gat takings have proved this time and time again during recent years and the league but neglect a Golden Opportunity in not grasping at the Kensington Oval proposition. The goal kickers. The championship among the goal kickers ended with saturday s matches with the following results ii an South -52 Owens Glenelg 49 Bent Norwood 41 Jackson Sturt 40 Mutton Norwood 35 Scrutton Sturt 31 Marvell Torrens 29 Allingham port 29 o Grady Torrens 36 Barron Sturt 25 Kamey Torrens 25 leak Sturt 23 Dayman c. Port 20 Lewis North. 19 Mills Torrens 19 Ellis torrens18 Barnes West 17 Dayman l. C. Port 17 Latimer port 17 Hepburn Norwood 15 wave South 15 Keal port 15 this season has seen a new crop of goal getters. Of the first six Only m one Man Bent of Norwood were among the leading men of last season. The champions of that year included Lewis North ailing Ham Portland Marvell Torrens and while each of these men s names appear in the above list they have not a cured so prominently this year. Bent was out of the game in Many of the Early matches and Marvell also has had to stand Down for a few games throughout the season. But Lewis phenomenal accuracy in front of the Sticks has not been at All a feature of North Adelaide s matches. During the last few contests Allingham has been placed afield and since being played in the Centre has not augmented his very respectable total of 29. Each team s leading kicker is As under Torrens Marvell 29 Sturt Jackson 40 Norwood Bent 41 port Allingham 29 South Ryan. 52 North Lewis 19 West Barnes 17 Glenelg Owens 49 the Champion. A. J. Ryan of souths has won the championship and on saturday finished a particularly Fine season by kicking seven goals thus passing Owens of Glenelg. Who has maintained his Lead practically throughout the year. Ryan has now played a few seasons Good football for souths and has this season blossomed into a player of the front rank. It was undoubtedly his accuracy in front of the Sticks that won for him inclusion in the carnival team. Jack Owens. While not depreciating Ryan s great performance yet the shown of Owens in getting to within three goals of the championship is considering the relative strength of the two teams most striking. Despite the fact that Owens played with a team that every match was a losing game his maintenance of top position right till the final game was a specially Brilliant performance and his influence will go far towards dropping the wooden spoon from the Glenelg at an Early Date. Last saturday s games ports 14.19 v. North 8.9 this game was an interesting match though played rather quietly. By adding forty Points to their opponents nine Irr the second Quarter the ports made the game Safe and though after half time play was More even the visiting team never appeared to be dangerous. Ports played Superior football All through. Badcock., playing half Forward and in the Ruck showed great form and was the most prominent figure in the game. But for a slight weakness in kicking his game was especially Good. Allingham at Centre played Good football and always held Lewis safely. Clem Dayman gave a splendid exhibition at Centre half Forward. In the air he was Seldom beaten and on five occasions he landed the goods. L. C. Dayman though not an outstandingly Brilliant As usual was nevertheless one of ports Strong men. Bampton led the defence with characteristic Short Sharp runs followed by effective passes. Eit borrow played Wingman in Good style and Galliford roved in a rather effective manner. Maddern As goal sneak was often under notice by effective handling of the Ball. Kinnear was again norths Best Man. His roving was Well executed and his handling of the Ball was most effective. He was particularly accurate in passing on. Ween was chopped around the Field throughout the afternoon but suited his game to the place he occupied.
