What the Fistic Game Needs Most Is a Fighter Who Don't Know the Value of Money NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS Slattery's Spikes TOMMY BURNS, former heavy weight champion of the world, is sincere in the belief that in Arthur Pelkey he has a successor to the title which Jack Johnson won from him in far away Sydney five jears ago this coming Christmas. Burns is a shrewd, serious minded sort of a chap who never has been known to give away to his emotions. He sincerely states that he has discovered what the others have failed to unearth—a regular white hope—one with the punch and the fighting spirit which is sure to carry him along. * * * BURNS made no mistake in size either when he picked out the big New England mill worker as a candidate for championship honors. He's a whale; he's not quite as big as Jess Willard or Carl Morris, but he looks bigger for the simple | " reason that he Is built In propor tion and he carries his weight like a mar. who knows his busl- ** ' * PELKEY stands 6...

Doctor Hunt says that the method by which the United States annually col lects huge sums in postal savings ac counts and lends the money to savings banks at 2 per cent Interest is silly.

Speaking: broadly. It is not the man of 45 who needs farm credit; It is the man of 25, It is doubtful if the kind of farm credit I propose should be given to any man more than 30 years of age.

DELIVERY CAR HAS NEW STARTER Innovation in the Commercial Field Promised by Stude baker Corporation The new Studebaker delivery car, embodies for the first time in a gas oline motor used commercially the principles of electric starting and electric lighting. The Studebakers have long been prominent ln the light delivery field, and their "Twenty" delivery car has been long recognized as one of the leaders in this work.

Manufacture of former types has been dropped, how ever, and the entire strength of the production organization centered on this one model, so far as the com mercial field is concerned.
