fessional boxing management in a
manner not uncreditable to herself.
More or less surprised newspaper
people who have met Miss Elizabeth
Tucker, of Ardmore, Okla., sister and
manager of Lonnie and Frankie,
featherweight boxers, are entirely
willing to give the young woman
credit for being earnest and sincere.
What fields a woman should or
should not enter in the growing com
petition of femininity with men is
largely a matter of personal opinion.
Miss Tucker, however, has arrived as
a manager of boxers and isn't wor
ried whether the individuals who
have occupied this particular realm
object to her entry or not.
Posters of Miss Tucker and Mrs.
Vernon Castle, would make pretty
good twins. Like Castle, Tucker is
slender, particularly graceful in dress
and not unsimilar as to facial cast
Miss Tucker creates the impres
sion of a girl whose, caliber would
carry her safely through channels
where the waters might be stormy.

lShe has the breeziness of the west
coupled with an evident fearlessness
not uncommon in the wide and
open places where she grew to wom
anhood. The philosophy of this girl boxing
manager is that a woman can suc
cessfully compete with men in any
line of endeavor and "get away with
it" creditably provided she is deter
mined to preserve her own self re
spect. Skeptical sport writers and boxing
promoters no doubt would sit up and
take notice at the spectacle of a girl
steering a champion boxer about the
country and dictating terms for a
title match. Miss Tucker's ambition
is to become the manager of a real,
simon pure prize ring champion.
nut in this instance of the first
girl boxing manager, it's not so much
the question of champions as the
spectacle of a girl striving to keep
her brothers good, clean capable
fighting men while following the for
tunes of the ring.
Does the gas meter sit in the
kitchen and stare at your, wife. Or
has it the decency to go down cellar
and stay there?
Ours sits in the kitchen. And we
don't like it It's so glum. It makes
us nervous. Every time we begin to
cook it clicks its tongue at us. Not
loud, but just enough to be aggravat
ing. It knows all the time what it's
doing to us. And it knows we know.
What does the gas company send
out a gloomy thing like that to take
your money away from you for, any
how? Does a gas meter have to be
melancholy? Can't it be bright and
cheerful? Is there any good.reason
why it shouldn't smile and be happy,-'
even if it does rob you while you're;
away for the summer?
Some folks' ideas of doing things
is like taking the cork out of a bottle
