The game will �*art at 3.30 o'clock and H. B. McElyea will manipulate the whistle as referee. The Shelby boys will be shown the time of their lives as a big feed is being prepared for them after the game and a dance is being held in the S.O.E. hall immediately after the game.

Inthe event of Lewis being knocked out, Bartffeld will have a legitimate claim to the Britisher's title. CROWN OF H Tulsa Club Has Offered Purse of $4000 to Get Bantam Champ in Ring CLYMER IS GREAT MANAGER Bill Clymer, manager of the Louisville Colonels, is perhaps the most successful of minor league managers. For There is a chance for a bantamweight championship battle in the near future. It is up to Champion Pete Herman to decide. A fight club in Tulsa, Okla., which staged the Pal Moore-Earl Puryear battle on New Year's day, has offered $4,000 real money for a 15-rotirtd bout to a decision between Herman and Moore, Manager Tommy Walsh of Chicago says years he has 'piloted teams into the first division of. the American assoc- .the offer looks good to him, and he will lay on and the International League, jjbe content to take $1,000 for the Pal Never has he fallen below third place. � Moore end and let the champion have A number of times his teams have won. At Louisville last year he took an apparently hopeless club and brought it through a winner. Before that he piloted ,a Toronto team to the top of the heap. And'that particular Toronto team looked the poorest in the league. Clymer's independence probably has a great deal to do with his failure to get in the majors. Bill would expect to dictate the policies of his club rather than turn this responsibility over to the magnate-Magnates, as a general rule, are inclined to be jealous of their prerogatives, and this may be the reason Clymer has never landed higher than the bushes. the $3,000 for the sake of getting a chance at the title. Herman owes himself a return bout with Moore, who secured a decision over the New Orleans Italian in 1015. The champion has not manifested any anxiety to swap punches with the Memphis flash since that time. Neither has Johnny Krtle, who was likewise shaded by Moore. Moore had no difficulty in disposing of Puryear, the Tulso bantam, who is variously credited with avshade over Herman, a draw, and a defeat by a small margin. It seems from reports that Puryear gave the champion plenty to attend to, but Pal had tilings much his own way. It was not as hard a fight as he had anticipated. - WHEN WE TAKE IN A SECOND-HAND CAR THE FIRST THING WE DO WITH IT 18 SEND IT TO THE REPAIR SHOP, WHERE IT IS THOROUGHLY EXAMINED FOR BREAKS AND WEAR.
