Tait Stock Down ircus Hockey Encounter Won Skeith 9 s Bearcats to Want Him Here Herb Skeith's Bearcats and Wilf * Poapst'a Tammany Tigers tangled in ; an alleged hockey game on an open air rink up around 14th St. and 6th I Avenue on Saturday afternoon, and when the ambulancshad cleared away the remains the Bearcats had put the favorites away by five to two. Three periods of 21) minutes each, which the players declared were two hours each, were played. The Bearcats were there with the goods, and had Mitch .and his bulldogs eating out of their hands while they slipped the five counters past them. "Cyclone" Endicott didn't he-lie his name slipping three by Mitch. J. A. Jackson, who used to know the game of hockey as she should be played, slammed the nets for another for the Bearcats, while "Newsy La-londe" Skeith showed all the oldtime pep of a decade ago and put in another. Charlie Moe did a comeback and piled in the only two counters the Tigers could annex. Pie worked like a house afire and it is rumored today that Lester Patrick wants him to harness up with Mickey McKay of the "Vancouver Millionaires. Cappy Foapsl showed flashes of form on the defense, but couldn't stand tho gaff and was sending out: S.O.S. signals for help before the final gong rang. The Bearcats couldn't find the net in the first period while tho Tammany j Tigers slammed in one, thereby going into the second period in the lead. The Skeith crew got their second wind in this stanza and made Mitch wish he were even wider built when they shot three past him while Charlie Moe was notching another for the losers. In the third frame the Bearcats added two more and the stuff was off. The two teams will hook up again next Saturday afternoon and if you want to see something better than the Sells-Kioto circus be on deck.

After .winning from Young Erne, also of Buffalo, in a 10-round canter in Hamilton, Ont;, last month it had been expected that he would at least pull out a draw with Kansas. Rocky is just a kid at the game. L(J3S than two years ago he was fighting at the 12G pound Weight. He is heavier now hut even at that Tait, who has trouble in making-the 133 pound limit, was still heavier. Indications are that -Tait fell down on the in-fiighting. Che Alberta lad has a nasty left which ho can hook over at a r distance but he has a lot to learn about mussing it at close quarters, which is where the boys south of the line shine. Only 16 Out of 330 Players Are Still. Good Enough For Majors What is the average tenure of the ball player in the big leagues? The reader who asked this question caused us to go back over the records for a few years and we found something Interesting and enlightening on the subject. Somewhere ' under 10 yearB would be the answer, just at what point would be difficult to determine, 1 There are players who have gone on for a score of years, but players of the Anson^ Wagner, Lajoie type are scarce.

Sport Writers After Dim Floto Pays Tribute To Tommy Burns i 128 183 Otto Floto of the Denver Post fs greatly concerned about getting Jess Willard into the ring. In a recent article he had something to say about Dempsey and Fulton as probable con-I tenders for the heavyweight crown, and incidentally recalled something about our old friend Tommy Burns. Floto says: How about this California heavyweight? Willard was asked next. "Oh, that fellow, Dempsey, you mean," he retorted. We told him yes; that Is the boy we had in mind. "All I know about him is hearsay; I have never seen him in actlorf," replied Willard. "Shouldn't wonder if he proved to be 'be tnuehest of the.bunch. These fellows of whom not much has been heard ana then Oiossom forth on the horizon with a bound are always dangerous customers. They tell me Dempsey is game, willing and knows something about fighting. However, if the public wants me to meet the Calffornian instead of Fulton or Morris, I ain ready." in the meantime Jack Kearns who manages Dempsey, says: "I am willing to allow Dempsey to meet any three men Willard designates and if Dempsey defeats them all, he w�nts-to be given the chance to battle for Wil-lard's crown." Fair enough. Tommy Burns Was Game Little tAan In speaking of Willard and other champions, let's not forget Tommy Burns. Burns was one of the greatest flkhters that ever held the title. He was a small heavyweight, at that, but . he knew the game, possessed lightning 2?8 j speed and courage a-plenty. He lost to 506 Stark . Evans . Sloan ..

A. financial standing, which has caused much discussion in soccer circles for some time, were put before Auditor Jack Kyle, who went through it yesterday. In a statement Mr. Kyle said: "The financial statement was examined by me last night and after scrutiny, I feel same will be found extremely satisfactory to the council, in fact it'was above my expectations. It must be remembered that during the past two years the income of the C.F.A. has been nil, yet expenditures, although extremely small, must be paid. This economy is especially noticeable in the case of the Dominion president, whose account, although visiting Toronto on five separate occasions, is one of the smallest items." 178 136 185 314 296 336 147 162 141 149 200 153 29G 362 294 365 Five-Man Team 211 171 132 157 289 157 208 148 164 137-138- 275- 137-145- �892 863 282'  794 1510 � 744 � 855 �1599  4 t * Calgary- Scott........ 160 Hemming Wark . . , Fraser ., Shaver . t * * * * 0 Barons Hatfield Flood :..

Strange to say the great Tyrus Raymond Cobb is among them and is still the greatest of all ballplayers. The others are Sam Crawford, who has about reached tlie en$ of the road. Hinchman, Schulte, who \:z.fi an unsatisfactory season last year, and Sherwood Magee, who has been released by Boston. Others actively in the game who were "up there" in 1906 are Fielder Jones, manager of the Browns, and Bob Wallace, who will be back in the big tent next year, probably as a coach. This is a striking picture of the length of time a big leaguer may hope to remain In fast company. Most of them are gone and all, with the exception of Cobb, are fading. Twelve years means a great deal to a ball player. 169 165 153 167 Moore....... 157 r �  � * * * * * 811 182 177 146 173 154 83" 147-165-192-145-172- 821- 209-168-133-170-131- 811 (Specially Written by Capt. Carrie) The history of almost all institutions can be divided into two phases: (1) The Pioneer, (2) The Expansive. So the history of the Canadian Y. M. C. A. at the front can well be divided into these two. The Pioneer daya laid foundations upon which the present can build with great security. And as in all such edifices, our admiration for tho completed whole seldom gives due praise to tho foundation, bo there Is danger that In applauding the work of our secretaries now overseas, we forget the strenuous toil of the pioneers of the work. To them rather than to us who followed belongs much of the glory of the service the association is now able to render to the Canadians in France. The turning point in our* work occurred about the time of pur return from the Sorame. There the resources of our institution were teBted to the limit in the attempt to give service of the most material kind to the Canadian corpB as it took Us part in the great push. Called upon as we were suddenly to take over almost the entire canteen arrangements of the corps our simple business organization would not have stood the strain. But the call of the Pioneers for a business manager had finally been answered, and the arrival of that important personage to direct the buying, selling and accounting of the Immense business transactions there carried on, made possible the giving (more or less efficiently) a great serivce to bur men at a time of intense strain; and created amongst the Canadian rank and file, not to mention the higher command, a respect for the organization which could in so short a space of time and' under such adverse condf-tfons^-adapt itself to the need of the hour. The association came away from the Somme with a fine record of service, and a greater respect for !t on the part of those it attempted to The winter of 1916-17 saw'the Canadian corps in a quiet part of the line. The Y. M. C. A. was able to sit down, take stock of itself and define its policy of service more clearly. Gradually the business department evolved, so that now in each division there is a business department presided over by an officer responsible to Jack Johnson in Sydney, Australia, more because of his own mistakes than the ability of Johnson to defeat him. For several years previous to 7 r yiis meeting with Johnson he told the ao rwrjter many times, "Johnson is not a game man." He told this story so often he really, believed it himself. When the match was made Burns had but one idea in his head: "I am going make that nigger quit," as he wrote on postal cards he sent to American friends. Burns Made Bad Mistake in Bout Then the men entered the ring, and 404 no sooner had Burns left his chair than . 449 i he rushed Johnson with the intention 474 j of carrying him off his feet. Instead . 455 i of taking advantage of Johnson*s real �466 j weakness-which always was his in- - ability to carry a fight to an opponent 2338 1-Burns carried the fight to Johnson, Just the thing he wanted him to do. 560 I This\allowed the "colored man to cross 510 with his hard right hand and knock  43a ! Burns down in the initial round. Burns 510 j never was, himself after that. Yet � 442, In the 12th round Tommy began to -] come back strong and there was dan- �2454 ger of his winning the decision. Had heart *ied for the struggle, more en* thusiastic for noble living, more determined than ever to live to the best that was in them. And it must plesso the people at home to know that night-* iy, not one but four such meetings will be held in the Canadian corps this winter. This, along with the extensive distribution of religious literature written In the field, is to the writer's mind the most vital work the association is doing In France. We will nevef be able to measure the power that goes out from each of these meetings. Contemporaneous with the religious problem was that of entertainment.  Tho higher command is always anxious that the time of the soldier while out of tho line should he taken up actively in some form of recreation sud enter* tain meat that will provide a good antU dote tj the noise of the shell and tha b nib. The association was just hs keen f.o make the aoidier's lffe as en* joyable as possible. We started in 1916 with one cinema taken over from the British Y. M. C. A. This fall we have nine In the corps. In I9i'., beyond Capt. Plunkett's quartette, we had little more than impromptu concerts. Now we have four or five first-class concert parties at our disposal for this work. These parties are most popular, and the huts are a*-rays crowded to the doors with both men and officers to hear them. No charge of any kind whatever is made for any cinema or coicert. Our iiuts are always open to whosoever can get in. In the early days our concerts were conducted in an* ordinary hut, from a half stage in front, to the tune of the canteen behind. Now our1 special theatre huts have sloping stage, sloping theatre, footlights, headlights, spotlights, drop curtain, side curtains-all, of course, of a kind-the dresses are the latest from Paris and the song3 fresh/from the London stage. Space does not allow for a full description of other equally important branches of our work that have developed this last year. The athletic programme of this past summer with its meets, its baseball and football schedules, its 25,00Q dollar equipment (mostly in baseball), is in itself worthy of much lengthier mention. The special services rendered the wounded during shows, commenced in a systematic way at the Vimy Ridge and since then the business officer. Whereas in the an integral part of y.m.C.a. activity on early days each officer spent most of the occasion of any show on the Brit- his time on his canteen, now all but one officer in each division is freed to carry on the more vital activities of the association. Having cleared the decks, so to speak, tho association prepared for action. ^The religious problem was next taken up. It was felt that one of. the things most needed by the men in the field was a presentation of the gospel upon popular lines, free from superficial emotionalism, intended more to help men live than to prepare them to die. In response to their request Revs. W. A. Cameron and J. McNeill of Toronto, were sent out. All last winter, with only one night a week off, Capt. Cameron presented his message of hope and faith and love to huts full to overflowing with soldiers. Many a man went out fiom the meetings ish front, is a story in itself. Along these five lines the association work has developed gradually and solidly during the past year. Without losing any vigor in this department, hut rather gaining grace through experience, it is taking & hold ot one more form of activity. I refer to the education programme now being developed in the army overseas. The plans are still in their infancy, hut are In the protecting and guiding care of Dr. Tory, from whom much is expected. The work of the association overseas is in a thoroughly healthy state and as such is worthy of the support of those interested at home, and the best labor of those whose privilege It is to serve the Canadian corp$ in France. Jennings and Evans will meet Dick- i Burns made use of his speed and fore- son and Sloan in a two-man event tonight about 7.30. This is a challenge matol^ and will be for five games. Sloan and Dickson won their first match with Trwin and Uscomb, and are confident that they can turn the trick again this evening. The Herald composing room has ed the flghirto Johnson there is no telling what the result might have been. Johnson Adherents Pulled a Buck The late Ruddy .Unholz was in Johnson's corner that afternoon. Many times Unholz discussed the bout with us and told how he and others got un- Uttje man Tommy Burns really was when we figure he was apparently flnr ished in the first round, yet he managed to wether thirteen more and was on ' * his feet fighting back when the bout | * was stopped. Burns time and again' told us that he was stronger at that stage of the battle than at any previous time afjter tho initial round. That he surely would have lasted the distance but for the action of the authorities in stopping it. ? HEAVIES FIGHT DRAW ? ? ? ? ? St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 18. - Fred Fulton, Rochester, Minn., heavyweight, and Billy Miske, St. Paul, boxed 10 rounds to a draw tonight. Miske led in a majority of rounds, getting inside Fulton's left.

Dominis Tortorlch, the promoter, says that If Greb makes an impressive showing against Ratmer i son adherents to cry out the fight officials and shouted, "Stop it, stop it.

"Because," replied Ruddy, "Mcintosh had told Johnson before the fight began that if it went the limit he would give the decision to the white man."
