Adelaide Sport (Newspaper) - September 16, 1927, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia morning spoil s pose you can feel the tango sprang at last the fruit Trees Are coming out into full Blossom the Little and big Birds Are mating the old Beckhum is his 18-Carat thirst not that he Ever lost it mind you Only he enjoys looking into a fat pot o Beer an helluva lot More in Bright sunshiny weather than he does when the to Herrom. Is Down to Zero. Don t care what you say the weather makes All the diff. To a Cove s thrust but look Here now and Tel Nisi if you Don t think this old world of ours is out of joint. Well not the s world to be exact but the people in it. Time was and not beyond the memories of old cols., when thought j Ful men and women used to concen to trate their interest on Able men grappling to with great issues. To Day the world seems to work itself up into j a frenzy Over the deeds of he Cham a Pion wrestlers or in the prize rings to say Noth Jav or the fanatical outbursts at a toe fill match. Why they go ratty Over Hocker or shiny As we used to Call it when i was a boy. Don t be surprised to use the mob going wild Over a game of marbles Between the boys of say the i Norwood school and the boys of the port Adl Ide ditto. Towards the More serious problems of life those problems Over which men in other Days engaged in Gigantic struggles modern c v miss Ilion affects to practise a cultured tolerance if not exactly indifference. Whatever his religious Faith each old timer held firmly to his own and despised his neighbor s. Today it is erroneously assumed that religion has been lifted to a worthier level. All that happened is that hosts of n in and women Are lacking a Spir Hial intensity religion has become merely a desirable social asset. I have been rending about the Days of the inquisition which from this distance does not seem an attractive institution. Its activities were cruelly misdirected but it cannot be denied that the men who ran it were tremendously in Earnest. This generation s trouble is that it has not sufficient Rel pious conviction to set up an in quis Tion even if to were possible the Al eged decline in religious life is not the fault of the lunch Mai Ned a i Ray. It is far More the fault of their conventional hearers to whom religion is largely a matter of excellent choirs and eloquent preachers. 1 it is no libel to say that modern Church members Are markedly diff rent in Fibre from ancient crusaders and martyrs. The slut on to the poor Church attendance simple the careless will Start to fill thei i churches when they see signs of in ter.?Ity of conviction and of consuming Pastil on the part of those who at present frequent them. Religious life is in no worse a plight than social life or political l be. It is f familiar and Well founded remark that social life is merely veneer. Its in Sceri i ties Are transparent to every intelligent onlooker. Some measure of social life is unavoidable but its excessive use leads to ins nicer it in speech to conventionality in thought. Devotees of society think in sets they Are much More eager to say the Correct thing than to think the right thing. Their thinking is extremely so so. They have opinions on every passing subject but Thev hold Themi so that thru can to st on them if necessary. Political life is suffering from the same blight. Politicians Are above All things politic. Manv a modern politician is As ready to readjust his principles but As h s principles belong to the party he belongs to he does not feel anxious about the readjusting stunt. To Seg veh for truth at All times to follow truth at All costs these doctrines do not appear to find favor with Many politicians. Thai fact explains much of tace present political decadence. How about keening on a bit longer now that i m in my rights Well practically every citizen has some kind of opinion but the great mass of that opinion is on sided. Take cur politicians for instance and Tell me if they should not be leaders of thought but they Are not. Their sole and Ety is to play for safety. The nation s political Hope lies m the women of the younger generation that Section not dancing mad and Pitcher show demented. There never was such urgent need for the Advent of youth i Asp j be d with ambition to serve the state. Youth should not allow any Uch ambitions to be blasted by the of the cynics. If there is not j n f u s on of youth i moral courage there will be abundant reason to Rel Gid with apprehension Australia s political future. In politics Partick j Early there is a Call for a new spirit of earnestness. The older men have settled Down on their Lees. They have come to look upon politics As their exclusive Job. The Young men have been driven off by lofty allusions to the necessity for experience. The Young men should remind themselves that it is not experience that is supremely needed. History abounds a t h instances of men who have done m mighty things not by intellectual skill but by unselfish Zeal. To take one single instance of Many that could be quoted take the Case of William Booth. When he started he was no ther scholar nor an administrator but he built up the salvation army. Let our Young men throw Down the Gage to the old a a Xiamen i tary barnacles and pres letting or-1 Manisa torts " to fact 1 let our Young men make up their Fri kinds that party politics must go " Here Yudeth the first lesson.

We had roughest game seen in this Section for Donkey years. All i can say is that our Tomball legislators will have to alter the rules of the game if they want to keep it going after the present generation of play ers have gone the Way of.

Clapham beats Karasick close and exciting struggle another big crowd packed the exhibition Hall last saturday night when a Karasick Clapham match was staged by or. Lecornu who has succeeded in placing wrestling on a solid foundation in Adelaide. Some disappointment was caused a couple of Days prior to saturday when news came from Melbourne to the effect that Billy Edwards acting under medical advice had to pull out of his arranged bout with v a1 Karasick but a popular substitute in Sarp Cla Harvi Jas hurried from to Adelaide to fill the bal. It was a Wise Choice for the englishman is a wrestler always Well tvo rth watching for there Are never any . W. Tactics on. To when., he is on a e mat and As Karasick is built in a similar live wire sort of Way it can be taken As a matter of course that there was any amount of fireworks about when such a pair of Man handlers got into Holts. Both men were so Earnest in their efforts that referee Honroth had to poke his bib in now and again to peace and Good order of the mat. A Fine curtain Raiser was. A six live minute set to Between Hugh Ahriman and Alfred Marr. The latter was an unknown Quantity As a wrestler but sturdy j tie big Hughie was known As the recognised middleweight Champion of Australia being ii bout the Only Man in the Commonwealth Able to beat the wily Indian sunni Ali who downed All Comers � couple of years ago bar Lias a. Lot to learn about the Fine Points of the game and n 1 when he does get that he will a hard wan to beat. He saw i rounds out but. Whitman to o f. Things comfortably and this ahead on Points when the end me � so it was.,no Surprise to see 111 crowned As the Winner the main bout had to e big crowd jumping out of their skins with excitement most of the time. Clapham s great strength got him out of he danger zone time and time again but the russian never let up in tii attempts to keep Sam s Broad Shoul Ders Down on the mat for the regu lation three seconds. However Samuel not agreeable to such an undignified position and gave Karasick All he was looking for in the Way of rough stuff. Once or twice Karasick broke the rules by kicking in the Ruck while the englishman was reminded by the Ivree that it was no boxing match. How Ever their Little diversions gave the Rob a Chance to Hycl out their objections. A a Nai Ano Joud to combined tone of voice. All the. Various holds Wei a Well tried by both ithe Nihof it first one up and. The hey Down while the Clever was out of what looked like Dea in grips and holds is right a to real Cha nip Oish a irm. I was. In to tee sixth round that the Only fall of the match was secured the russian was doing some High and lofty tumbling aided by Isam s powerful Aniis n6 doubt that Kar Asiclo was Gettin a bit too for pm Clapham fell Bak ads and right cd top of his opponent. Sani went Dowie Ker Flop on the surprised russian who Wais dazed by hitting his head Beavly on the mat. When he gathered Back his scattered wits Irro Good shape once again it was Only to find that Clapham had pinned 1w his shoulders a f Down � in longl0n ? enough for the referee to signify Al flir a emf that a recognised fall had been scored.7 during the next two rounds Karasick worked overtime to even up matters but the englishman was Conte in to play for safety first so much so that the russian nearly beat him self in his attempts to beat the Man from John Bull s country. It was spectacular Battle Between two Matteri earmarked Al at Lloyd Soi wherever they keep Tab on the Lacker jacks of the mat. At times pack looked to have Sam settled but the britishers is a stolid individual. And simply would not submit to Karasick s unkind attentions and to nations. So the Battle waged to the end when Sam s solitary fall landed him the was a Quarter to eleven before hostilities ceased but none of the crowd seemed to mind. In fact they varied on As if they wanted to be e in two mat gladiators make an ailing i j Job of it. Kilonis and Thye a rough bout. By a Melbourne correspondent ted Thye obliterated any pretentious John Kilonis May have had for a t the bout when they met last saturday n get at the Melbourne stadium the contest was not exciting yet it was in a strenuous manner by both men but even the uninitiated in the science could see who was master and that one was certainly not or. John Kilonis. Thy e was Down. In the fourth round the greek had j a. Species of leg. Hold on. Thye and such a Good fixture it was that ted Thye was certainly on his shoulders for the requisite time of three seconds. It or. Bridges failed to notice the fall. It was a very Pecus a. Arid cute Effort which enabled Thye to gain his fall in the seventh rounds famous Boston crab. The Boston crab patented by Kilonis had by some Means or other lost its pincers when it was most needed. I at the crucial moment As John was we on the to Multi to Tillon cleverly and with malice aforethought caught Kilonis by the Ankles and kicked violently. Down went the poor greek with a thud and Hurt his Lead in Contact with the mat. It was easy for the to Spring on top of Kilonis and pin his shoulders to the Nat for the requisite three seconds John Lay still even after ted Thye was Back in irs Corner and ragged up. The greek s second a fellow ".ountryman, did not seem to know what to do until or. Bridges came o the Rescue and tried to take the prostrate greek to his Corner. Then the second a pop up but John Sidn to not even when he was set on his chair in his Comer poor John fell off that yet in the Short interval he came too and forced the Pace in the last round. These wrestlers have wonderful Powers of recovery and vital Fly one minute insensible and the next fighting like trojans. Good upper Cut. Speaking about fighting in the fifth round rough work predominated culminating in Thye Landing a splendid. Uppercut on Kilonis Chin which caused the greek s to come into violent Contact with the mat. John sat there and appealed for a four but the referee heard him 4.11 the same Thye should have been disqualified for such a serious breach of the rules. The fans seem to like the rough stuff that is probably the reason Why uie referee allows it Ana Why the wrestlers adopt it. So alls Well that ends Well. The White Flag has been hoi Steil since i last wrote you. Pou Parlers ire going on. To Day s monday bulletin states that definite arrangements w 11 be made for Santel and Thye to meet in title combat. The stadium Generalissimo insists on Santel signing for two matches. The . San elites agreed if Clapham was to be the other opponent. But the stadium official again with insistence reserves the right to choose whoever they like. The san testes whose main objection is Thye will in All likelihood accede providing they be assured of a Thye Battle. If the Battle does eventuate it will Cost the thrill seekers of this great City and District carloads of shekels of Silver to obtain ocular demonstration Anent the relative merits of three two great gladiators. If any Dubi Ety May exist in Adelaide regarding Bain s claim to be British lightweight Champion he will furnish full details of who he Defeated for the t tie also the venue and Date. Some people May consider Sam Clapham is the British Champion and although Bain admits Clapham a a i eat wrestler he can prove he is not the British Champion. Bain would like to meet Sam in a contest in Adelaide or broken Hill. The Western.
