I. N. G., working to legalie ten-round
decision boxing in Illinois, have in
vited prominent clergymen, business ""
men and politicians to meet in as
sembly hall, West Side armory next
week to discuss the campaign.
A draft of the boxing bill proposed '

would give 25 per cent of the gross"
receipts o fall matches to the state ,
for maintenance of a boxing com1!!
and state charities. This is a larger
percentage than is taken out in most
sta'tes, where boxing is conducted ,
under commission supervision.
Fighters will be required to regis

professional matchmaker will be .
eliminated, fight managers and club
executives conducting all negotia
tions. This feature, of course, will,
be contested by certain factions iden-;

On the face df it, the regiment is"
proposing a bill that wou,ld keep box

it doesn't go far enough, the bars are ,
not let down in a manner to suit
some of the fight people and they ,
may fight it in the legislature.
