THE CASING SITUATION
The cut made In the price of Its pro-
ducts by the V. S. Steel Corporation

ing It ls announced. Neither do the
tuts made by the Independents In ntvrA
The Independents frankly state In
antern market reviews that the com-
panies hftve been making their bet
percentage of profit from the pljie end
of their output and that because of the
continued good demand the price was
not lowered very much.
They Intimate however that if there
ls to be war forced by the trust pipe
is the leading item Into which they
will reach with a big slash. Evidently
they consider the trust more vulner-
able in the casing Joint than In any
other part of its anatomy.
The oil oiomtor Is not urging war
among the Mcel workers but he will
not put anything in the way of their
reducing pipe prices If they want to.
However. It Is amply evident from the
demand for casing In excess of other
steel products and the attendant main-
tenance of price that the steel makers
nre with the oil operators In looking
for an advance In the price of oil and
further btlmulntlon of development
and demand for casing.

only n few years ago was battling
feathers but mark my word he'll &ur-
prlc everyone by the great showing
he'll make. And I know that Curpen-
tlcr feels sure he can whip Demptey.
"If Witlnrd and Dempsey ever fight
again I look to see Wlllard boat him.

cheap. Hut If they meet again I'll

"I want to tell you that Jeffries was

chances. They doped J;ff.

"Joe Wnleott? There was sure a

floating ribs that don't count but two

of the fight I thought his hand was

him. He was sure some fighter. I
had broken my left arm three month
before my Hrltt fight. I knew It

There were many women present. We
didn't do any fancy boxing but sailed
in. The women at flrsh cried 'me-

It and the cries turned to 'hravos.'
From then on the French public could
not get enough of professional boxing.
"I'm onlyl n spectator of the game

whole realm of athletics.
"I still do a little lioxlng." he con-
