BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BOXINGS
Lieut-Gov. Barratt O'Hara can see
little hope for the passage of a box
ing bill. He believes it will not come
x before the state senate again at this
session. Amendments have been
made which will cause many senators
to refuse to approve the measure,
which now calls for a commission to
govern all forms of sport.
In the meantime, rain will fall just
the same and the sun will shine as
brilliantly, the high cost of living will
continue and we shall rattle along in
the accustomed groove. The failure
of the bill will only affect a few peo
ple, who now may have to go to
Heinrich Schmidt, who jumped to
fame in the British amateur golf
tourney, defeated Chick Evans at San
Francisco yesterday, 4 and 3. Schmidt
played remarkable golf and took the
lead when Evans made two succes
sive drives out of bounds.
Johnny Harvey claimed there was
not enough money in the house at
Columbus, O., last night and refused
to fight Charley White. Gentlemen
of this stripe should be summarily
Gene Delmont was far better than
Maurice Flynn in ten rounds at Mil
waukee last night. He won seven
rounds and stirred up enthusiasm by
the earnest way in which he fought.
Work on the Broadview motor
speedway is being rushed in anticipa

and 200 feet of the track has already
been completed. It is possible the
racing cars will be able to take ini
tional spins on the path June 5.

There are hot rumors of some sort
of a readjustment in baseball Jines,
with a few Federal owners being al
lowed to buy into the National league
and others being taken care of in the
larger minors. Phil Ball, owner of
the St. Louis Feds, is said to have an
option on the St. Louis Cardinals, but
all the angles of the deal have not
been fixed up.
Something may be due to happen.
We don't see how it will make much
difference to the fans, except that
they will be relieved of this everlast
ing talk about court proceedings, etc.
But when Jack- Foumier, Wilbur
Good, Bob Fisher and Fred Beck of
our three local big league teams are
slamming home runs and triples in
sweet profusion, it is pretty hard to
become stirred up over the troubles
of the magnates. They have dug a
pit for themselves and should
emerge through their own efforts.
They did not take the fans into their
confidence, and the fans are resent
ing it through absence from the box
Let them settle their own differ
ences and we'll go out and watch the
athletes. Baseball is played on a
grass-covered diamond' and not over
a lawyer's table or in the booth of a
Jack Fournier, well-known French
man, cannot be kept out of the Sox
line-up, no matter how atrocious his
fielding may be at this early stage of
