BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS-BOXING
In revenge, members of the Illinois
state senate who favor boxing will
try to have passed a measure provid
ing a commission to govern all forms
of sport, with a percentage of 7y2 per
cent of the gate receipts for the state.
This will apply to baseball, bicycle
and auto races, track meets and
every form of sport to which admis
sion is charged.
Senafor Hull tacked on the amend
ments to kill the boxing bill, and this
is the way the original bill's advo
cates want to get back at him. It all
presages a lovely mess, with nothing
worth while accomplished.

Many fans with a statistical kink in
their minds have been figuring, ever
since Eddie Collins became a member
of the White Sox reasons for the
peerless second baseman's greatness1.
They have lamped his bloated bat
ting average and concluded that h
was on the pinnacle of fame because
of the regularity with which h
slammed the ball to various portions
of the outfield or beat out rollers
which do not pass the inner defense!
They have looked over his base
stealing record or his feats of de
fensive ability and decided that it was
proficiency in these departments that
set him aside from other ball players.
All three conclusions are correct
when lumped together. But Eminenj;
Eddie is famous mainly because he
can enjoy more than one thought at
a time and make his hands and feet
instantly answer the command of his
brain. He has the physical ability cor
