Believes “Chief” Halftown Will Win The Bout
Sporting Editor, Republican:
“Chief” Halftown, a Seneca Indian, who faces Bennie Brown, in the 8 round main event boxing bout to be staged at James City on next Thursday night is putting in some hard licks in his training stunts, preparing for the Brown encounter. The “Chief” is not going to let Brown get the verdict over him and spoil the many chances that he now has on hand for future fistic engagements.

Kane Soldiers Started For Gretna Camp
A Total Of 115 Men Entrained Early This Morning May See Some Actual Service
Members of Machine Gun company and members of Headquarters company, of the 112th Infantry, were a busy lot of soldiers all day yesterday. Besides getting their equipment ready to entrain for Mt. Gretna, they had the work of moving from their former location in the Cohn block to their fine, new Armory on Chestnut street, which took up their time until after 5 o’clock, last evening.

Legion Ran Away From Pennsy Team
Punk Anderson was about all there was to the game between the Legion and the Pennsy played on the Pennsy field last night. He was on the mound for the Legion and struck out seventeen men and also assisted in retiring two others, which with a total of 21 men to dispose of was a pretty fair day’s work.
Despite Punk’s good work, errors and general poor judgment back of him allowed the railroaders to score twice in the first inning. In the fifth, the railroaders found him for a few more rattling hits and counted three more.
However, the Legion team was never in danger and seemed able to accumulate two or three runs whenever fancy took them. They also ran the bases at will and Apples Holland brought these stunts to a climax when he made a clean steal of home.
