TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION. Just prior to the memorable charge ot the Liverpool Scottish at Hoogc, a year ago, two young privates, named Carruthers and Dunt, who had been life-long pals, attended a com munion service held within sound of the gurrs. Whilst waiting for the order to leap over the trenches and charge, the two men discussed the matter of a will. Dunt told his friend that had left his New Testament to his fiancee, whereupon Carruthers said, 'If anything hap pens to me will you sec that Ella gets my Testament ?' Ella being his fiancee. The charge was made. Carruthers was killed and Dunt came out unscathed, only to be sub sequently wounded. Whilst he was in hospital the regimental authorities examined the valises of the men who had been killed, and the Testa ment was found in the valise, and some photo graphs, one Derforatcd by a bullet, found on the dead body of young Carrutliers, ultimately reaching his mother, the wife of Mr. Hugh Car ruthcrs, a Bootlc magistrate.

COLE AND MOY TO-NIGHT Edwards Declines to Agre to Moy Making 10-stone [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
COLE AND MOY TO-NIGHT Edwcud* Declines to Agrc to Moy Making 10-stone Through. Mr. Baillieu, for Edwards, declining to allow Moy to come in at lOst. the contest be tween this clever. pair intended for to-night has been called off. and Jack Cole will' take the Welsh lad's place in opposition to the American. Though a contest between welters, there will be a wide difference in weight. Cole will probably weigh the full limit, 10.7, while Moy, if more than 1 0.1, will probably not be seen at his best. The lalter's greater experience and much superior science will counteract any inequality in weight. On Cole's last Monday night's showing it would appear that Moy will have little or no difficulty in securing the verdict. But it is not wise to regard that contest as a guide to Cole's capabilities, as in another part of these notes 1 have pointed out that in Cairns the Sydney boy met one of those awkward customers who would probably make a better and more experienced boxer than Cole look ch...

They were all 'knuts.' l-'rom Grafton to Lismore, to Bal Iina, to BanRalow, to Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba, it was always the same. We met bowlcro in every sense and meaning of the term. So:nc did not roll their woods up well. Others rolled them up too well for us. But every man of them was a good bowler in the social acceptation of the term.' Mr. Booth was rcferrinc to the recent trip to the Northern Rivers of this State and to Queensland of 'the Knuts.' 'We were essentially a sporting team,' con tinued Mr. Booth, 'and we kept that fact in view all the time. So did our hosts everywhere. .Consequently we have returned with pleasant memories, which will never be effaced. We have already made up our minds to go the same way asain next year. It was two and a half weeks of unalloyed joy.' Still Mr. Bcoth : 'We played three camel at Grafton. which place we reached via Glen Innes, and were b...

FANNING AND SPARGO Clever International Featherweights in Return Contest at Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
FANNING AND SPARGO Clever International Featherweights in Return Contest at Melbourne Arlos Fanning, the American featherweight, is to make his' second appearance in this coun try at the Melbourne Stadium to-night, in a return match with the local featherweight cham pion. Their first battle, three weeks back, came to an unsatisfactory ending in the seventh round Fanning being disqualified for holding and hitting, methods, he explained, which were tolerated in America. He had been cautioned in previous rounds. He stated that in his ex citement he found it impossible to suddenly brrak himself off that- to which he had so long been accustomed. He asked for a return match, hence to-night's fixture. Our Melbourne cor respondent states that though Spargo is evi dently the cleverer boxer. Fanning is the heavier hitter, hence an exciting contest should be seen.
KAY AND CLABBY [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 12 August 1916
. KAY AND CLABBY A correspondent writes : — The suggestion of The Arrow that Kay and Clabby should be matched .is. a -most .admirable* one, .as, in'ray opinion, Kay has qualified' to meet Clabby. I saw Kay defeat Mick 'King in Melbourne, also Stone and Uren in Sydney, and in my opinion a clash with Clabby would attract much at tention. Few of our Australian boxers can claim such a record of successes as Kay. I looked on his defeat of Mick King as a most attractive performance. Kay gave King 111b Now many of our local fans have paid a wcllrearncd compliment to the undoubted clever ness of Harry Stone, or to the forcing tactics of Tommy Uren. Yet Kay made both look very cheap at various stages of their contests, and certainly displayed- greater cleverness than Stone, giving a masterly exhibition. Against Uren he surpassed himself, for on more than one occasipn . Uren . missed so badly that the force of his blows caused him to squat on the floor.' ? Clabby is a great boxer and ring gen...
