He won the llrst fall wi,tli a double bar put on in front In 24.30 and the second with a crotch and half nelson in lC.3(i. Londos says it is the llrst time his shoulders have over touclied the mat. Taylor agreed to tihrow'Loudos twice In an hour or lose the match. The Greek looked lacking only In inches, not in musolo nor science. In speed he was Taylor's superior, and hu was fully the ex-policeman's equal In mat craft. He was i)robably 30 pounds lighter, weighing not much over 17."j. Taylor was not In the best of condition last night, owing to a recent attack of indigestion and chlljs and he was nearly 10 pounds lighter than in his match with AVestergaard. Londos a Shifty Athlete Londos' specialty was. shiftiness, and Taylor found him a hard man to got hold of. The little Greek would dance In and out, dart away like a wary trout Just o,ut of reach of Taylor's tantalized lingeYs. In the llrst bout ho ran repoatedl.v oft the mat, and' three times 'I'aylor crashed into the sc^tS of the stage spectators after him. Once ho picked the Greek up bodily, carried him back and hurled him to t'he mat, but, to the vast delight of the crowd; which naturally sided with the little fellow, the Greek broke away. Again T.aylor chased Londos behind the back drops clear out ot sight of the crowd. The big Canadian was not to bo denied, however, and, bridge as desperately as he might, Londos was finally compelled to ]>ay tribute with' his shoulders on tlie mat. Taylor w^s Just as methodical iu'his handling of the slippery little fellow as he has been In all his matches, taking all the time he needed, and making Just as sure of everything as he could. Needless to say, he was never in any real danger himself. Fine Exhibition of Bridging Londos gave a splendid exhibition of bridging in the last fall, when he resisted for fully live minutes the pressure of Taylor's b.ulky body, with one shoulder pinned and t'he other only an inch from the mat. Londos Is a powerfully built chap, with shoulders and neck almost as powerful as his talleii and heavier opponent. He Is a trim, handsome little fellow, and ot rare intelligence and culture. Ho spqaks English fluently, having been a grocery clerk In San Frinclsco for years. Ho has been In the professional wrestling game only two years, having met and defeated scores of wrestlers heavier than himself. Ho Is- the former Olyni'^ pic club 170-pound champion, The-ophllus. , . Londos claimed after the'bout that the last fall was imperfect. Ho says he was not pinned. Last night several members of the "Y" boys' department �i.'iet at tlio home of the secretary to read over the play entitled "The Upper Trail." The Is a play ot fo.ur acts for boys and was written by Raymond Osboino Hanson, boys' work secretary of the San Francisco Y. M. C. A., and Is of a comedy dramatic type. During the evening Mrs. Thompson In dramatic style read the entire play to the boys who gave a very appreciative hearing and are quite enthusiastic about it. The en-t'njsiasm shown by the boys fEi^ors well for the success of the play. The cast for this play will be made up entirely ot the 'Y' boys and It is expected to stage the play in the Majestic The-atrii In the near future. The rest ot the evening was spent in a social way with eats. Nuf sed. � > ? ? : ? ? ? ? ? ? MORAN CAN TAKE AND GIVE PLENTY OF PUNISHMENT TOOKE BROS.

In the Champagne aeotor tho French made an attack south of St. Marle-a-py, a position which we captured on February 12th. They succeeded In penetrating our llrst lino trenoheu over a width of about 2150 yard^. - TCaBt of the Me^use considerable advances wore made on the battle front In t'he presence ot the .Emperor. Our brave troops gained six hills south, west ot the village ot Louvemonl and a group ot fortified positions situated to the oast thereof. In the fierce rush forward the Brandenburg regiments piished on as far as the village and tho armored fort of Do,uaraont, whloh t'hey carried by storm. In the plain ot Woevre tho enemy's resistance broke down along the en' tire front as far as the neighborhood ot Marchevllle, to tho south of the national hlfeh road from Paris to Metz. Our troops aro, closely pursuing the retreating enemy, ' T'he Gorman statement Indlcaterr the development of the attack along' a wide front to tho south and oast ol. the region north of Verdun, alonC whloh pressure hitherto 'has .boensejc.. arted. ' The hlg'a road'from''Paris' to Metz referred to runs through Verdun^ (lasslng slightly to tho southeast, 'It is cros'sod. at a point 15 mlleS', oast of Verdun by the. Gorman line, bending southward in jthe salient of. St. Mlhlel, It Is. along this I'rdnt that t'ne. Germans ' are no^v i fttttioklng; .in tho district from tho aeotor to the onslaught was made. Verdun is thus being assa.ulted simultaneously from, the north, northeast, east and southeast. Apparently tlie Germans ar� d^^ veloplng an attack similar to tlmt employed frequently with marked success against Russian fortlHed posii tiona In the campaign laat summer. ' Their tactics were to bend back the Russian lines on ibothisides of tho selected point of attack' and compel' the evacuation of the fortress Itself.. The town referred to in tho German-statement as marking the southern, end - of  the portion of the � French' front, which has been broken, is prob-' ably Marchevllle-En-Woevre. This town la J.ust south of the -Paris-Met? highway. It is 13 miles east ot Ver; dun and the same distance froni Beaumont, the capture of which .was., announced today by the German )\ai\ office.
