VACATIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 11 November 1916
VACATIONERS. I've been where countless people went for recreation and rcpoic. Where forty kinds ol scads are spent for motor rides and things lite those. There were, for those who had the price, all kinds of harmless, cheerful snares, And there was every known device to make I sat and watched them, all day long, be- i ncatn a quaKmg aspen tree; ; To find so sad and glum a throng, a funeral . you'd have to see. j The tourist plodded on his way, as '.hough , he'd lost his dearest friend; Hh face, despondent rrcmed to ray, '111 see this ordeal to the er.d.' ', With gloom expressed in every act, he went j the rounds, where others went. ; And saw the Rainbow Cataract or ?a;ed on . fakers in a tent. The Windy Cavern he explored, and trailed i alons some diz7y curve. ... I And all the while he looked so bored the i guides and spielers lost their nerve. | I saw two hundred tourists thus; they jogged : along through scenes sublime. And looked as though they'd like to cuss so vain a waste of ...

FOOTWORK IN BOXING SAFE AND EASY MEANS OF DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 18 November 1916
FOOTWORK IN BOXING SAFE AND EASY MEANS OF DEFENCE Strange to relate that, while book* on boxing have been written by the world's best profes sors of the art who havo proved themselves in America and England — excepting Grilfo, tho greatest boxing scientist that ever livec\ — littla . or nothing has been said or the greatest and safest means of defence — footwork. It was this accomplishment that enabled Griffo to beat Billy Murphy. It was fast in-and-out footworn that enabled Tommy Burns to beat his big lumbering opponents, such a one as Gunner Moir in London. . According to the moving pictures of that contest, the Londoner was busy sending out lefts and rights, many apparently landing, but never with much force, owing to the target h^.nf in the act of retreating, when they landed. It was not Dave Smith's wonderful ducking or blocking that enabled him to decisively ac count for Jack Howard, Jack Lester, and Bill Lang, men much bigger and infinitely stronger than he was. It was his wo...
CAN YOU BEAT IT ? [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 18 November 1916
CAN YOU BEAT IT ? Walter Law, prominent among the- Fox stars. Possesses a pack of cards which he travelled in all 21,000 miles to get. He picked the cards up in stray corners throughout the United State*, and it was- seven yeaia before, he. col lected the complete deck. The seven years were from 1900 to 1907, when h,e was a travelling man for a big commercial house. Mr. Law is most enthusiastic about his cards, and handles them like so many pearls without price. He claims that there is not another pack like his any where in the world, and it seems more than probable that he is right. 'I wouldn't part with them for the throne at Delhi.' says Law. 'Thirty-one States arc represented in my odd assortment, and Ohio is the only one that has three cards. For the most part the deck is made up of the cheap 15 cent, variety. I have the name of the city and the street in which each was found, with the date on the back of each card, and, believe me, there are 52 good stories in that deck, too.'...

AN AMERICAN OPINION OF DARCY-CHIP AND OTHER MATTERS [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 18 November 1916
AN AMERICAN OPINION OF DARCY-CHIP AND OTHER MATTERS Mr. E. E. Winiami writes me from/*. Orange. N.J., U.S.A. (11/10/1916) : 'I have wanted to drop you a line for some time in regard to the game here, and also about some of the fighters who have lately arrived in Australia. George. Chip's defeat by Le« Darcy was no surprise to me, as I wrote to tlie Brisbane Herald over one month before the fight took place, statins that Darcy would win inside ten rounds. I have seen Chip fight, I and he did not appc.il to me a a championship I possibility. His manager. Jimmy Dime, is a fine ' fallow, and a good square sport. Patsy Bran- i nigan Is a good rusfied little fellow, and ought I to make Ecod in his class, as the 20-round route ' is to his liking. As for the other men Dime brought over, they are only ordinary men who have met defeat time and again.

SLEEP CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 18 November 1916
SLEEP CHAMPION. People who see the strenuous work wmen Hughie Mack puts in In slapstick comedies would probably be sceptical « they were told that between these scenes sleeping is the favor rite recreation of Vitagraph's heavyweight comedian. Yet so It is. Mack is willing to meet all challengers, young or old, in a sleep ing contest. He guarantees to sleep longer, fall asleep quicker, and recline in more uncom fortable positions without his slumbers b''6 disturbed than any other man, woman, or child in motion pictures, or out of them — dead ones willing to wager that his snores will drown .those of any two men. Chick Morrison, chief cowboy of the Flying A outfit, doesn't believe that horseshoes bring good luck. Reason for this is that he has a perfect imprint of one on his right hip, where one of the new outlaws secured for the Rodeo kicked him joyously behind the barn.
