was for some years a star twlriir.
Japan's llrst Introduction to Amerl-
en's national game was In 1901, when
a team wax organized by American
residents of Yokohama. For many
months their prnctlsc gumex on the I

In the meantime, many of the small

chie, Ix pulling up as n lighter In the
Past Just now. Ilitchle may be n real
champion some day. A Chicago paper
says of lilm:
Puckey McFurlatid's refusing to
light "Young" Krne liwt night -lit Phi
ladelphia brought to light the (run
merits of Willie Itltchle, the young
coast tighter. It produces u most pe
culiar nilxtip In ring history, McPur
land was billed to take on Prne and
was nut considered to huvo bettor than
an oven chance with the Quaker city
hul In six rounds. In fact, many
Prim's admirers thought he would de-
feat the Chicago boy over the short
route. McParliind suildenly declined
to battle Krne, alleging his rlght eye,
lujurcil III a llglll llie liigiii ueiuie, wen
loo painful to penult of a second light,

match looked easy for Krno, hut tlm
biggest surprise ot the year was
sprung when the young protege prac
tically camo from obscure ranks anil
administered a neat and Severn trim
ming to MeParland's rival.
Ilarely is It given a boxing partner
lo step Into thu star's shoes.
Considering what McParliind was
expected to do with Krno and what
Ilitchle actually did stumps tho boy
Horn California as the better battler
of the to. It senilis nnw that Tlilry
has picked up a prize In Itltchiu In

a boxer of Prim's experience, science
and speed requires plenty of nullity In
nil those lines and. Judging from the
reports, Itllchlo possessed all tho es

the popular decision. Ho seems to

possible for teams of about equal

with the unrestricted forwnrd pass
should make the scoring of touch

the case In some years.
That the committee felt a touch
down should be worth more than two
field-goals was shown by Increasing
its Milue from live to six points. This,
