of the Red Sox, who will not wind up
their junket until March 6. The late
meeting will not hold up the sched

be announced- in conjunction with
the National, about the middle 'of
February. The American confab will
be a mere formality.
Gov. John K. Tener of Pennsyl
vania has practically accepted the'
presidency of the National League.
There are certain conditions laid
down by the Pennsylvania executive,
but the attitude of the four major
league representatives after their
conference with him yesterday indi
cated that every demand by Tener
would be met.
" Tener will not finish his term as
governor of Pennsylvania until Jan.
1, 1915. Between the time Tom
Lynch steps out, or is kicked out,
Secretary John Heydler will run the
affairs of the league.
Right here let it be said, that Hey
dler will not tolerate any foolishness.
He was president pro tem after the
death of Harry Pulham, and could
have been elected to the office if he
had been willing to wink at the do
ings of some magnates. Heydler Was
firm, however, and the election of
Lynch resulted, i
National magnates realize that the
time has come for them to lay aside
bickering if they are to remain a
strong competitor of the Johnson or
ganization. Fights at every league
meeting have brought them unfavor
ably before' the public.
Tener will probably get a five-year
term at an annual salary of $25,000.
Details of the terms offered were not
made public, but Tener admitted that
it "looked as though he would ac
cept." Word to a palpitating world from
the Universities of Chicago and Wis
consin opens some peculiar trails for
the dopist to travel. We are wised to
the fact that Maroon freshmen, with
Badger formations,-gained at will
through the varsity line, and from J
Madison comes the report that Jun-1
neau's regulars were soft for the
yearlings, who worked Chicago plays.
All of which is very interesting, if
true. Chicago has the better team,
and should win, whether they use
Maroon, Badger or Hyde Park for
mations. Jimmy Fox, San Francisco feather
weight, has started training jn Den
ver for his fight Thanksgiving Day
with Benny Chavez of Trinidad, rated
as a comer. Denver is staging some
nifty bouts at present, and Colorado
is popular with the scrappers, espe
cially the light boys.
Cus Christie had a safe lead over
Knockout Brown of Chicago at the
end of six rounds in Indianapolis. The
fight was a tame affair, and. Brown
failed to land an effective punch.
Charley Cutler and Strangier
Lewis haye signed for a wrestling
bout at the Globe Theater the night
of Nov. 26. The two grapplers press
agented their bout a few days ago
when fiewis tapped Cutler on the jaw.

MOW I BUILT MYSELF INTO A
By Willie Ritchie, World's Light
I ascribe my success in the ring
altogether to the constant care I have
given my body, keeping it like a per
fect machine that bums true.
It's a wonderful feeling to have a
strong, clean, efficient body that you
can count on all the time.
Watch the envious, wistful eyes of
fat, flabby 'men when they look upon
lithe fighters in the ring, or the eyes
of dissipation-weakened youths
flocking to the training camp. They
