Naughton, who says: "Juat how it will be when McCarty meets Palzer ..remains to be seen Palier, course, will not be as assy to handle as Flynn. The latter com- pares with as a buH terrier does with a mastiff, but in the com inr engagement there will'be no discrepancy in size."

"McCarty is considered the better boxer: Palzer the harder hitter.. In the matter of strength the men are. supposed to be on a par, but it is thought that Palze'r's ruggedness has been thoroughly proven, whereas nothing much is iroown of. McCarty's ability to endure rough usage." nesday, ,Ian, 1st, 1913. Y.M.C.A. vs. Sporting day, Jan. 3rd. Aquatics vs. Jan. 7th. Sporting Goods vs. day, Jan. 10th.
