LUTHER LACKING IN SOME OF THE-MAIN ESSENTIALS RE-QUIRED BY CHAMP The old gag about tl�e aian who owned a dining room going across the street to get something good to eat is on a par with Luther MoCarty's latest stunt of putting himself under Harry Ollmore's care to learn the finer points of boxing. Luther la supposed to be the next thing to a champion, yet he admits that there is a lot ot Btuff in the Queensherry game that he has not yet learned. The idea of a near champion starting out to learn boxing is something out ot the ordinary to say the-least. McCarty does lOt make any pretense ot being.a finished ;boxer, but at the same time all fighters should make a clear study of their profession, so that they can explain the manly art to.others as well as gaining knowledge for tJjeir own benefit It is a pity that America hasn't got more scrappers on the order of �Freddy Welsh, who la a very clever boxer, also a puncher and a master of his ari. Fred not only knows all there is to boxing, but also has a wonderful knowledge of the human body, and has for years supervised his own cooking and is a vegetarian. There will never be any need of Fred to hire a tator. He kno'ws more in a minute than some fighters could get into their head in a lifetime. Welsh is a good example of the intelligent boxer and is a credit to the sport.

After two preliminary contests betweea lo-cal .glove men the two star performers entered the ring. It soon became evident that the colored man had .the ibest of the proposition, as his -wgrk was too scientillo for his opponent. But only X)nce did he have .Stieetor down, and that for five counts. Even hid Mortimer sot succcodsd la laying the knockout blow, he would have been awarded the contest. Streetor was game, however, and-^duritag the flf* teeotth round made a determined effort to turn the odds in his favor, bub three swift punches to the jaw from Mortimer ended the perlormp ance. .
