Hig Al Tom O'Rourke's entry, probably Ihe class of the bunch of ambitions youngsters, lias hearken- ed lo the call of the coin and patched up all differences with (he man who engineered the pugilistic campaigns of Sharkey, Dlxon, U'alcott and other knights of the squared circle. Al stuck It out for a long time and tried hard to force O'Roiwke lo relinquish the managerial reigris, but found1 the legal game very expensive and harder to beat than reckoned on; then sensibl- concluded to make peace with, the mat who had contributed so much to success as a pugilist. The veteran plans, to lake west to meet the winner of the Jim Flynn-Luther McCarty battle schedul- ed for December 10 at Los Angele: that is provided McCarty Is the victor. understand Billy ..McCaraey, Luthe. mentor, has promised Tom JlcCarey, the coast promoter, to keep the big boy out there for a season If successful in tiie Flynn engagement. Should Fire- man Jim emerge with the honors, how- ever, it is likely the Palzer-Plynn con- test will be staged right here in Goth- am. Flynn has declared in favor of Now York and the 10-round thing. Palzer's long absence from the training stunts during the last five or six- mouths to boxing, and (hat he has rectlon was demonstrated in the re- turn engagement with Stewart a few weeks ago, when he outclassed the Ilrooklynite. So much so, In fact, that the bout was slopped in the seventh round to save big Jim. Buffalo has a candidate for the heavy-weight race in George (One Hound) Davis, who, has been bowling :iis opponents over with alarming regu larlty since his professional debut "One Hound's" latest feat was tt> duplicate Gunboat Smith's knockout of lim Stewart in seven rounds, lerstand an attempt will he tnado to "natch Davis ivHh the winner of the .Vilest-Smith bout. Ad Wolgasl is not to box Ritchie on Thanksgiving day after all t appears, though the bout may yet e staged. I Imagine the champion vants another whack at Joe Mandot efore taking on -Ritchie, who looks he more difficult proposition of the Ad has boxed, both boys and tight to know. note where Tom Jones, Wolgast's naiiager, is out with a spiel in which e claims a western fighter is always given the worst of the "newspaper" or "popular" decisions In New York and where the laws do not permit referees to pick the winners. Jones says that a western boxer, to get all that's coming to him, would be forced to knock an opponent cold, especially. If it is a local man he Is boxing. So far as Mr. Jones, his champion and this town are concerned, I must say there is ground for complaint; but I take exception to the statement that all visitors are given Hie raw end when boxing local boys. Take Hike ilbbons and Eddy botli vesterners, for example. They have never been treated unfairly in the matter of expert opinion. With Wol- gast, however, it is about as Jones has cost him -a number of local admirers who contend that the lay off will injure his chances. Quite a few local sports have transferred their affections and are now touting Ounboat Smith, lato of California, as the leading candidate for heavy-weight honors with good reason, too, for at the' rate of .Improvement -shown .by the' Gunboat the past few months, it is.nol tco extravagant praise to say that he would give the best of the white men i good battle. Gunboat has devoted.' much of AU ana his manager for som reason or other, are not very popula In newspaper circles and as a resu when the champion boxed here wit K. O. Brown the majority of the cri ics awarded the decision to the loca boy. although a draw was the ver worst. Wolgast should have bee given. Johnny Kllbane is another wh has suffered at the bauds of the loca press. It may not show the prope sporting spirit 'to' permit personal pro judicc to influence a man in rendering i decision in a boxing contest, but guess it is "human nature" to do so The Handiest Way To Shave Some men, who have shaved for years with the old-style, long-bladed razor, find .it hard to believe that the Gillette Safety Razor is really handier and quicker. So the quill-using clerks of old must have looked askance at the first steel they learned by experience how much more effective they were. A few days' -experience with the Gillette and a man finds he can shave with it quicker and more easily than he could with the long-bladed razor after years of practice. Holding the Gillette lightly; pencil, you can shave any part of the.face, in any direction, using the true Angle Stroke. Those awkard spots around the chin and the the jaw will give you no trouble with the Gillette Safety Razor you will not .cut your face. Moreover, the Gillette can be adjusted, by a slight turn 'of the screw handle, for a light or close shave, or for a soft or heavy beard., This adjust- ability, which adds so much to the comfort Of shaving, is found in no other razor. Why worry along in the old' way, when the' Gillette way is so much easier, quicker and-rnore comfortable 411 Enuiiimcnt Complete Including Extra Tire and Rim. 5-passenger, f.o.b.

TODAY Tls Not the Boxer Himself, They Say But Those Connected With Him Calgary. Nov. figh fans in Calgary who are not acquaint ed with the early days of the boxint same in this city, have asked why K Sealer is not matched by Tommy 3nrns to meet Dick Hyland, Joe Bay ey .or some other lightweight. The reason Is Johnny Reid, who is f not actimiiy Scaier's manager. Tommy Burns wanis the confidence if the public. If be should match any boxer whom Johnny Held is handling he would soon lose this confidence. No one knows this better than Burns and that is the reason that Kid Sealer barred from Calgary society.
