Tinker followed up his suspension
pf Phil Douglas by selling him to the
St. Paul club of the American Asso

The New York boxing commission,
however, an able and square body, is
laying plans to protect Tex Rickard.
The chairman of the commission says
he wants the promoters protected in

Evidently New York has learned
wisdom from some former "big
fights" that have been held there, and
doesn't care to be stung again.
Johnny Dundee and Benny Leon
ard fought ten real rounds in New
York, and at the close Dundee had a
shade. He earned it in the last round,
sinking Leonard to his knees with a

The first meeting of the Junior
Baseball Managers' ass'n will be held
next Monday evening at the head- f"
quarters, 128 W. Randolph st, sec
ond floor, at 7:30. It is the intention
of President Sheahan to send teams
away on the pennant marathon
