Irish Engdahl knocked out Swede
O'Brien in the fourth round of their
fight last night at the Rose Garden
after a fast and furious brawl.
As Bugs Baer Would Write It
Swede O'Brien got socked last'
night. After stumbling through three
rounds, he walked into Irish Eng-
dahls right and hit so hard he stood
on his head when he came to.
Gloves flew like birds around O'
Brien's ears. Reminded old timers of
the time Gink Fowler stopped thes
Glutt. Gink was so tough the Glutti
tore his gloves to pieces hitting him.
Refused to hit Gink with water pail
offered by kindly fan because Pail be-
longed to mother. Every time the
Glutt hit Gink it sounded like a con-
vict Picnic on the rock pile. Gink had
steel body and pig iron stomach.
Only way to bark his shins was by
using file.
As Grantland Rice Would Write It.
The shuffle of feet on the resined
floor, ]
A bunch of tramps outside the door;
A sudden flurry upon the ropes,
Like the wild stampede of antelopes.
The fighters' grunts, the crowd's
wild cries,
The referee's shout-"Shut up,
youse guysr"
The clash of the battle, the roar of
the mob,
'Twas a sight for kings, it wasI
Excited indeed was the spectators
They roared at the sight of the

The opening of the 1926 football!
season will find Northwestern univer-
sity in possession of the first three-
decked solid concrete stadium in the
United States. Although present
jlans are not for the completion of
the structure by that time, there will
be seating capacity for 54,000 specta-

torswithout necessitating the use of
standing room or bleacher seats. If
thie latter aye out to use, 60,000 can be
accommodated the first year. With
both ends completed, the total capa-
city of the new plan will be in the
neighborhood of 74,000.,
According to the plans of Archi-

teot James Gamble Rogers, the line of
vision from any part of the stadium
will be uninterrupted. The elimina-
tion of as many posts as possible will
also aid the spectators to get a clear'
view of the field. The stadium as
planned will not occupy as much
space as many of the great plants now

in use, but will be slightly taller than
most of them. This will result in the
bringing of the spectators closer to
the field than is possible where the
ground area is larger. Special ar-
rangements are to be made for news-
paper men, scouts, and photographers,
who will be quartered so as to facili-
tate their work as much as possible.

Closely woven, they portray truthfully intri-
cate designs of hand weavers-Their wools
are specially selected-The natural lustre Of
the fleece is, emphasized-The silken sheen
makes patterns radiant with quality-Yet the
cost is a fraction of an Oriental!
We've just received many ne patterns
for Spring showing!
