BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Soccer Game Monday for Red Cross -4.- -i.- -.>- Benedicts Accept Bachelors' Defi You can't keep a good thing down. That's why the soccer players are out to revive the game. The baseball artists started the custom of playing games lor patriotic purposes, and so the soccer fiends who haven't played a game if� two or three years, decided to det going. The other day the bachelor pigskin chasers issued a challenge. To-day it was taken up. A. L.

Edward Smith, known to sporting page fame as J'Gunboat," lias been an inhabitant of this oblate pill called tlic earth for 30 years. Gunboat" is usually called a Cali-fornlan, but he isn't a native son. as he was born in Philadelphia. Another misconception regarding Smith is that he acquired his fighting name by reason of naval service, whereas that name was wished on him because ha wears No. 11 gunboats on his feet. The inventor of the "occipital punch" is Irish-American, flies the Stars and Stripes, except on St. Patrick's day. has a length over all of six feet and displacement oE 1S5 pounds stripped for action. Time was when Smith was looked upon as a "white hope", but that time lospita FOR AUTO AND TRACTOR has long since passed, ae has hope, which has been realized. Gunboat has taken particular delight in fighting the subjects ot John Bull. He put the kibosh sign on Bombardier Wells in two rounds, und forced Fred McKay, once the pride of Winnipeg, to hoist the flag of surrender after an equally brief engagement. Then the Union of South Africa came to the rescue of the. British Empire's reputation and Rodel. the Boer warrior, assimilated all of Gunboat's punches, including the occipital and at the end of 10 rounds was eager for more. ' Smith began fighting professionally in lyos. and won most of his early battles by the knockout route. His first defeat was administered to him by Jim Barry in 1910. Smith's occipital blow usually was delivered with the right, which flashed over his opponent's shoulder and connected with the occipital bone at the base of the skull. It was thi.s punch that got Bombardier Weils' number, but It was a right to the jaw, a plain punch without any frills, that stretched McKay out for the count. OXFORD RUNNER'S SECOND BAR. CURES GUARANTEED ANDY'S RADIATOR REPAIR STATION REAR DALLAS HOTEL UPSTAIRS London.-Lieutenant Colonel A. X. S. Jackson, the famous Oxford university runner, who visited the United States in 1914, has been awarded a second bar to his Distinguished Service Order for brilliant services on the battlefield. The official record o� his gallantry follows: "His battalion was subjected all day to an intense bombardment, which caused many casualties and cut off all communication by wire with the front line companies. He handled the situation with such skill and initiative that when the enemy attacked the casualties had been evacuated and replaced by reenforcementa and communication established. "Owing to powers of his command and the spirit he inspired to his men. j the attack was repulsed on the greater ' part ot the front, while where the enemy penetrated into the f.-ont line they were counter attacked and held I at bay till reenforcements arrived. I The enemy was driven back with heavy losses and the position completely reestablished." Jackson won the mile at the university sports in three consecutive years but his greatest triumph was his victory In the 1500-meter race at the 1 Olympic games at Stockholm In 19U'.
