fans who flock through the turn

XX ith the exception of the Cincin

major change* have occurred in the

the Red* and Yankees, while re

Taken as a whole, the club* In both

nRK you weary of witnessing
crude youngsters masquerading
as professional rlngmen who
have an exhibition of sound boxing
to offer club patrons? Does the slam
bang, hit-or-miss style strike you as a
painful burlesque of what boxing
should be? Or do you enjoy It and
find It something delightfully Homer
ic, despite Its fla\or of darker ages?
Jack Hkelly, famous old time fight
er, Is an "ancient" with modernistic
urges. Progressive thought* and ac
tions are usually reserved for the
youth of the land Hence Hkelly be
comes unusual. He has a new Idea,
although some may label It a* the
outburst, of a graybeard with an "old
timer complex '
At any rate, Mr Hkelly ha* a new
Idea which is Important If for that
reason only.
He believes that the boxing public
should l>e spared th» agony of watch
ing youngsters perform who haven't
the faintest notion of what scientific
boxing means, of course, as Mr.
Kkdly admits, these stupid encoun
ters frequently result In considerable
excitement, copious blood lifting and
the like. However, the Yonkers sage
believes both the boxer and the fan
should be above such moron de
lights. He subscribes to the belief
that there Is nothing worse than Ig
norance In action, lie thete barrels of
sincerity and fun In the display.
The plan, at least, brings the writ
er this reflection: That the American
ring exhibits more untaught perform
era than any branch of sport he r/iii
think of. It Is cluttered with a quag
mire of unachooled youngstera who
think that a tough Jaw and a good
punch ars all that are needed to win
a championship. And the drab part of
It. Iii that mc«t nf them hi e neither
the purn h nor the Jaw.
No hall player ever reaches th*
major leagues until be has shown
signs of marked talent. And even
then he Is put through a tost gradu
st« course of hitting, base running
and general field tactics by the big
league manager. The major league
fan la treated to the finished product.
Collegiate football players are
coached thoroughly in all branches of
Ihe g.itne for n yen- before they arc
selected for a team. And there Is tbn
same stern and thorough attention
to rrew candidates. The rowing
resell has his candidates hard St It
even during th* wlnt'r months On
th* row ng machines In the gvm he Is
slr*d up for g*net»| films, end Is

This bunt virtually will prepare
Villa for a battle with Genaro, who
Is the most worthy foe for the
champion, and who has signed up
with Jimmy Johnston, New York
promoter, for a contest with Villa
as soon a* the open air season gets
under way and Is waiting anxiously
for Villa to accept terms.
