McCOY AND UREN For Welter Supremacy at the Melbourne Stadium To-night [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916
McCOY AND UREN For Welter Supremacy at the Melbourne Stadium To-night Herb McCoy and T Uren arc to meet for the fourth time at the' Melbourne Stadium to night. It is for the welter championship o\ Australia, held by Uren. who. after losing it to Fritz Holland, regained it in their return match. Uren and McCoy have met three times to date, the lightweight champion winning twice on points, after losing in their first meeting on a fowl. As to the probable result of to-night's en counter, much will depend on McCoy's condi tion. Of lat*- hf h.'i- nrtf aflorlrfd in his CUS tomary almost weekly contest, and should, therefore, have regained more of his former most brilliant lorm. if the enormous work he had previously put in has not taken all the go out of him. If at his best, I should say he will once more prove his superiority over Uren, and aeair. become welter as well as lightweight champion of Australia. But if he be no better than he was when he lost to Ed%vards and Stone on this side...
For Bantams, Feathers and Lights [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916
For Bantams, Feathers and Lights Mr. R. L. Bakrr has decided to promote tourneys for rising youngsters in the bantam, f-athcr and lightweight divisions' bouts to be ttaged every Wednesday night. As an early Mart is to be made, those who intend com i-cting are requested to enter without delay. If entries are sufficiently numerous, the initial bouts will commence next Wednesday night. I made this suggestion some months back, that instead of Dreliminarv bouts, hrat* nf tournaments should precede main events on a Saturday night, and that by the time the final was reached sufficient interest might be worked up to make it a good draw-card. If Mat Murphy defeats O'Connor next Mon day night, his next appearance will be in a main event on a Saturday night at headquarters. A pretty stiff test, seeing that Murphy can make lightweight, or is prepared to wager that he can do so, whilst O'Connor has to work hard to do 10.7.

Feathers Godfrey and Brannigan [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916
Feathers Godfrey and Brannigan Sid Godfrey's work of late has been of so high an order that he is now well up in the first rank of our featherweights, and if at the | Stadium to-night he defeat Patsy Brannigan. I the American lad, and hero of over a hundred battles, he will deserve a match with Spargo — a step towards a Hill-Spargo or Godfrey Hill bout for the Australian championship among the r.inc-stoners. It is only about 12 months since this same Godfrey figured in amateur matches. His first ting Luke Wright — now at the front — and I with the exception of a doubtful decision given Wai Scutts. and a true verdict to Pat Conley. he ha-, been holding his own, and a bit to boot, against the best ot them. In Brannisan he will br up against the toughest of the tough, one who has had more contests than most men in the came, but has yet to tccr what it means to be 'beaten by the | K.O. I will not be at all surprised if Patsy | is beaten bv the short-cut route this time. True he saw the ...

On paper, Fred Kay's recent performances proves him to be next best man in Australia to Lcs Darcy. Little 'Jerry Sullivan is another of the lads who, appearing often in three-round bouts, is showini: improvement every time. I hope the Janncse-BIackburn contest for the bantam championship of Australia has not fallen through. Eob Morgan .ind Roy Smith arc to meet in a ten-rounder next Monday night prior to the Murphy-O'Connor contcrt. Kay's defeat of Clabby was remarkable. It is the first time for years that a lighter man than himself had scored over the world-famed American. It would be interesting to know the opinion of Melbourne experts on the difference between Dave Smith when he defeated Bill Lang and Dave Smith on Saturday last.

Rumanian King's Romance [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916
Rumanian King's Romance Ferdinand von Hohcnzollern, the King oi Rumania, succeeded to the throne on Octobei 10, 1914. on the death of his uncle, King Carol, who was 76 years old. When he was Crown Prince the King was attracted by the charm: of one of Carmen Sylva's ladies-in-waiting. He completely lost his heart to her. 'I hav« never known anvthinc so heautiful as theii devotion to each other.' Carmen Sylva wrote, 'It is pure and ideal; they seem made for one another, but I fear their union is impossible.' And so it proved, for King Carol would not hear of the future King of Rumania marrying his wife's maid of honor, however charming she might be. and to this edict the lovers had to submit. Ferdinand ultimately married the sweet-faced Princess Marie, daughter of the Queen Victoria. They have six children, twe boys and four girls, the heir to the throne being the Crown Prince Carol, who is now 23 years of age.
The Hun Physiognomy [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 4 November 1916
The Hun Physiognomy An English writer has been studying the photographs of some of the German leaders, and he finds in their faces things which do not whet his admiration. Among other opinions he expresses the following: Have you ever studied the Hun physiogno my ? ? Have you ever had a close look at the portraits of the Generals who arc leading the atrocity-armies of Germany in France and Rus sia — Hindenburg, Mackensen, and the others ? Can any sane person really see in their features any semblance of kindness, of justice, or of humanity ? And even forgetting for a moment all that has happened, is it possible to find in thsir sunken, staring eyes any expression Of love or pity ? We think not. That there arc numerous traces of hand someness there can be no doubt, and especi ally is this so in Hindcnburg's face, but it is a handsomeness of its own kind — that, indeed, which seems strangely akin to beauty of pre civilised days. There arc, too, marked quali ties of cleverness. But is ...
