ONCE UPON A TIME IN SPORT My Fight with Willard [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916

QNCE UPON] ?3*&. ATI ME |jrkjN^p£EiJ My Fight with Willard When a man - makes a prophecy the best tiring to do is to fulfil it himself. While writ ing the story of my life and fights in Answers, * year ifo, the big American, Frank Moran, lays: I prophesied that Jess Willard, the bie cowboy, who took the heavyweight cham pionship of the world from Jack Johnson would not be big and strong enough to knock me out. T have nnt nrnvrrl a false nronhet. The fight between us was at last arranged to take place at Madison Square Gardens, New York, but the unfortunate thing about it for me was that it was not a fight to a finish, but a mere ten-round affair of the no-decision order — exactly the sort of fight for which I nave always bad a thorough contempt. I like the fight which goes on until one of the com batants cannot e° on any longer — the fight to a finish. We Shall Meet Again I told readers a year ago that I had never known the sensation of being 'kn:.:ked-out.' I am still able ...

THE TRAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916

THE TRAMP3. They glide away at set of sun. Past the bright harbor lights ard out to sea; The ships which dare the deadly foe Beneath — to carry, food to you and me. Some subtle mystery wraps them Close — like as the veil of coming night Towards which they steal with darken'rt sides, Until it folds them softly from our sight. Out on the ocean's heaving breast Thrv move— these throbbing arteries of trade, Which feed an Empire's beating heart — A heart encircled with vermilion braid. No speed of twenty knots or more ? Have they— no 'fifteen-inch' no cloak of steel: Merelv a coat of dirty grey — ' Old ocean tramps, voyaging for woe or weal. Thrir skippers ? Unassuming, quiet. Their rrews ? Why, just- the same as yen would find . . Ib^m any time, in any port. Careless, contented, tanned — to peril blind. Sometimes they never reach the shore.

Their Ludicrous Serenity [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916

Their Ludicrous Serenity One German officer I met said it was 'an Im pertinence' to use the tanks ; and some of the German soldiers regarded them with some sort of superstitious terror for the first few minutes, till daylight disclosed their true nature (says a Daily mail writer). Even then they were alarming enough. With ludicrous serenity they wobbled across the grid iron fields and shook themselves as if the bul lets were flies that bit just deep enough to de sprvp a flirk Thnw whn harl insnecterf thps-^ spurians in their al fresco stalls beforehand or followed their lethargic course over impossible roads in the moonlight, gasped with humorous wonder at the prodigy. Munchausen never ap prcached the stories imagined for them by sol diers. But little reliance was placed in them. Tho Germans had brought into wariarc many for bidden forces, foul gases and living fire ar.il the rest. We were to answer them with a British novelty, but one well within the rules of International law, and...

THE MOTOR MAN'S AMBULANCE STRANGE STORIES OF WAR'S REALISM AT VERDUN [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916

THE MOTOR MAN'S AMBULANCE STRANGE STORIES OF WAR'S REALISM AT VERDUN It is finished, is Verdun, as the turn on the Western stage. Press agents were bidden to do their best for poor old Fritz, but he's finished. Grim and scarred, Verdun still looks sor rowfully down on the Meuse, and to inhabit ants, mostly ancients, are coming back shrewdly with the ambition of making good with wares and produce amongst the remnant of the defending heroes who still gaily parade «« streets wnen uiey are relieved from the trenches. From amongst the ruins many a family has stepped forth. Holes deep down to the virgin rock have sheltered these sangu ine folk whilst the heaviest guns beat their squalls of shells about the gutters of the old town. Craters and fissures catch the care Ins, poised kerbs and setts upset the un wary, and the toppling walls collapse as the owners return to their shelter. But the town has survived its ill-treatment; its folk are gathering to repair its wounds, and now and again ...

'I'll venture right in, where it's up to my chin, Avd then thrpw up my hands in the air, And let out a yelp ns a summons for help,' So she said, 'am! be rescued right there :' So Janet McGce took a dip in the sea, And she looked at the men on the beach, And she wished that she knew just which one of the crew Would be the first her poor body to reach. Then she let out her cry : 'Help ! I'm going to die ! Oh, the curreift is dragging me down !' And right there and then twenty-two gallant . Said : 'We, can't let that young lady drown.' So they jumped in the wave, little Janet 10 save, And they raced to be first to her side; But soon a fine chap, with a grip like a trap, Just lifted her out of the tide.

USING MOTOR AS A BRAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 25 November 1916

USING MOTOR AS A BRAKE. In descending a long and steep hill, there is a large heatinc; effect, and a great strain on the brakes, particularly when a »ide-car is fitted to the motor-cycle. In fact the brakes, desicned primarily for solo work, are subjected to the extra strain of holding back the weight of the passenger and the side-car. For this reason many side-carists use a magneto cut out, and put the motor in gear, so as to let the latter act as a brake. If you have ever spun a motor-car engine over, agsmst compression, or whirled a motor cycle engine without lifting the valve, you will remember that, while it takes some effort to get it started, it takes comparatively little energy to keep it jroing. This is because the work done in compression the charje in the cylinder is nearly all expended again when the charge expends, without exploding. The same effect takn places when the motor is used as a brake with a magneto cut-out. At first it brakes weU, and then acts less ajid less...
