Smith again, and also Bandsman
Rice, who won over Jojinny
Thompson.
Indications point to sa real
world's battle for the bantam-weight
championship in Febru
ary or March with Johnny Cou
lon, defending his crown against
England's fly-weight champion,
Sid Smitlj. Negotiations are on
for a battle and it will go to the
highest bidder. Smith will- be
here shortly with his manager,
W. E. Amet, and Billy Marchant,
the sensational featherweight,
who seeks Abe Attell'5 title.
Matching Jim Flynn and Jack
Johnson may sound well to some,
but haloes' not have the right ring
to me. We admit Flynn is a good
man, but when you stack a good
little man against a good big man
the big man-wins, and that will be
the case with Jack and Jim.. Tom
my Burns was a good man, but
he proved altogether too small for
Johnson.

JUST MANNERS
Should a girl offer to shake
hands when introduced to a lady
or gentleman on the street?"
Just one of the questions aslced
Cynthia Grey, but it shows the
false standard common' in every
degree of society.
" What real value has the lifting
of a hat, the opening" of a door, the
shifting of a chair, if not inspired
by real kindliness of heart? Does
it whether xvb address the wed
ding gift to the bride or to the
lucky man himself? Is it wrong
really wrong for a man to
send a girl anything besides fruit,
nowers ana canay until ne nas
jjnowi her 47 years ? Is it really
beyond the pale for a. girl to offer
to shake hands on the street if
she likes the person, the person
likes her and both think they are
going to be friends?
"What real effect do "just man
ners" have in the development -of
a race, mentally, morally and
physically? The real thorough
bred may be born in a palace or in
a poor hut ; it doesn't mattei . The
fineness of the Icourtesy that
thinks first of others may be ex
pressed in graceful, cultivated
way, or with untutored rough
ness, but it is courtesy, true man
ners, just the same.
So, instead of worrying our
selves over what is correct in
mariners, let's just shaKe hands,
literally and figuratively, with
every human being whose life4
touches ours from now on.
Everybody ought to be in part
