Frankly, I have been unsble to an*

merous leading exponents of form I
still do not know what the darned

the answers Is that It la—doing things
gracefully, according to the accepted
pattern, looking pretty aa a picture.
Naturally sueh an snswer would be

That would he a mistake. Toil can

When they were fighting ths Civil
war it was the mode to imitate Ns-
poleon. Many generala did well at It,
but ths man who got the verdict st
the finish waa U. S. Grant. He dis-
liked reading about the Emperor, and
hia campaigns were vastly different
from those which Europe had hailed
aa being in the very best atyle. But
that did not keep him from trouncing
the imitators of fashion.
It has been the same In sports. A1
Simmons and that queer butting style
of his have been writ-
ten too nmcli to men-
tion now. Vet, it still
seems strange to me
that the experts should
have been ho deceived!
Those who, years pre-
viously, had seen an
man performing In
the Pittsburgh Iritield
should certainly have
known better. At the
start, this awkward.
bowlegged man seemed
to embody all the teneta of what not
to do. That was at the start. Since
then many competent observers have
declared that Hans Wagner was the
greatest ball player who ever lived.
Then there was another powerful
fellow who played golf. He lurched
at the ball, he was off balance, ho did
a few other things wrong (or so the
stylists said) each time hs went sround
a course. His nams was Ted Ray. He
won the British open championship In
1912 and ths American open sight
Greb Did Everything
Wrong, But Won Fights
There also was Harry tJreb. Few
fighters ever have performed In as un-
orthodox fashion as did this lad who
won the middleweight championship
of the world, was seldom out of the
big-money class and more often than
not was called upon to defeat oppo-
nents who outweighed him from 10 to
He never was a puncher, able to
end a fight with one devastating blow,
as was another ring marvel and ring
freak named Bob Fitzsimmons. Largely
Creb won because his only claim to
fame was that he lacked all form. He
swarmed all over opponents who,
trained in accepted modes, were be-
wildered because he did not fight their
way. I saw him one night—probably
it was the time when he beat Gene
Tunney—slapping, wrestling, hauling,
doing everything wrong.
Time after time he started punches
with his left, shifted In mid-air and
landed With Ills right Instead. To lead
with your right Is to disregard one of
the strictest canons of the ring. When
you do that you lay yourself open to
a knockout, and I am not advising any
one to try It. Yet, Greb did It that
night, as utKin many other occaslous,
and—he got away with It
