rs Is genorally wished for by managers,
that they may know In advance of their

Despite the court's action on tho prayer
for a temporary Injunction, the charges
of monopoly and restraint of trade prob
ably wM be tried within a month.

tho opening round to the last there
was not a sportsman in the vast au

sight. More action was crammed Into
the Ktlbane-Morgan battle than has
been the pleasure of fans to see in
years. There was a thrill in every
round, and tho last one was enough to
satisfy the appetites of the most ex
