Today the bill legalizing boxing in
Illinois was to come before the legis
lature at Springfield. Even though it
gets through the house there is little
chance for its passage in the senate,
where, on a previous occasion, such a
bill was amended to such an extent
that it was ludicrous.

With remarkable frequency the
three Chicago big league teams have
been" cracking existing records wide
open. They established a new oile
yesterday when Sox, Cubs and
Whales each defeated the opposition.
That makes the third consecutive day
on which an three oi our prides have
come out on top. jf
Just how hard the White Sox are
smacking the ball is well illustrated
by their record yesterday. They reg
istered seven safeties. Two were
home runs, one was a triple, two were
doubles and the remaining two weip
plain singles, both by Roth, and sgma
what scratchy. -vr- ""
But the homers of Fournier ald
Brief, the triple of Russell and. Buck
Weaver's two-baser were resounding
smacks. Founder's homer hit the
center-field fence on the first bound,
and Brief's wallop cleared the fencp
in front of the left-field bleachers, a
feat that has only been accomplished
three or four times in the history of

Brief, if he ever gets a better break
of luck, will give Fournier a tough
fight for slugging honors, for the new
first baseman takes a solid and tear
ing smash at a baseball. In the sec
ond inning he drove Hartzell against
the left-field fence to get his fly. In
the eighth he stung a vicious liner to
center, which Cree got by an excel
lent diving catch. In the seventh he
produced his homer and in the eighth
he hit one directly at Maisel on third.
