, : Connie Mack, manager of the Phil
. -i adelphia Americans, is taking a per
' ' sonol Interest In securing Robert Mc
A Grow, Jr., clever 17-year-old Central
, 1 High school student of Pueblo, for the
Athletics. Not content with a half doz-
j eu refusals from the parents of tho
i i ' youth to permit him to join a major
league baseball team before he reach
's es his 18th birthday, Connie Mack has
again written to Robert McGrnw, s.i
3 perintendont of tho D. & R. G. at Pu
l eblo, and father of the star twlrlor
1 McGra,w cau sign a contract today
3 it ho will, or bis mother and father
I will permit, that will mean $3,000 a
4 year to begin on, with prospects of
4 doubling it If ho stays in the major
league. Probably no other high school
J student in the United States can step
j from the school room Into a $3,000 a
Jl year job that he has earned through
, J his own abilities. It is enough to turn
'J the head of tho ordinary 17-year-old
a boy.
M Young McGraw has a remarkable
record for a high school pitcher In a
J game against Centennial at Selce park
A last spring, he struck out 20 batters.
J In addition to being a pitcher with a
' bewildering speed and cool judgment,
a he is the best batter on his team, and
I can piny anywhere In the infield.
'j Inquiry into the affairs of leading
fcoxlng clubs, operating under the New
York state athletic commission would
i seem to indicate that all the promot-
i ers have been disappointed by the fi-
4 nancial results this year. The, mis-
f take has been made In giving too
1 1 much money to the boxers This is
admitted on all sides, yet there seems
to bo no remedy in bight.
Instead of working in harmony, the
vnrlous promoters have followed a
cut-throat policy, which, in many
oases, has brought about complete
Second and third-rate boxers have
been allowed to dictate exorbitant
terms. Some of them have received as
much as $2,000 or $3,000 for their
services, which, under other condi
tions, would not he worth $500
Star performers have received guar
antees Instead of a percentage with
tho result that gate receipts have not
covered tho expenses.
It is admitted that boxers should
draw what they are worth in tho
shape of percentage, yet some promot
ers have paid guarantees rather than
go without attractive matches.
They have gamblod with the public
I in vain and in many Instances patrons
hae refused to pay high prices for
ordinary bouts.
The cheapening or the game, too,
has done irreparable harm. Promoters
have provided several co-called star
houts or a low rate of admission to a
single show, thereby educating the
sporting public to conditions that have
proved disastrous. The followers of
boxing are well posted and promoters
now find It Impossible to put on bouts
of (foubtful caliber without incurring
a loss.
The promoters of one club that has
gone out of business blame competi
tion for their failure. On several oc
casions thoy took in as much as $10,
000 for a single exhibition and either
lost money or found that the profits
djd not exceed $500.

Judging from his performance at
tho Fairmount, slambango must have
been invented in France, says Rob
ort Edgren In the New York Even
ing World, writing of thc Frenchman's
fight with Reddy Morgan.
He was full of it.
Tho little French champion has
shown us something. Ho is the near

the comparison fits.
It wat$ a lucky thing for Battling
Reddy that he had other Bat Nelson
characteristics besides the name.
Reddy is a strong, clever, heady
youngster, with a marvelous capac
ity for wallope. He managed to stick
out the 10 rounds.
When the first round started Bat
tling evidently had a notion that he
would slip something over on the
French champion. Probably someone
had passed on to Mr. Reddj the in
formation that Ledoux means, rough
ly translating from the French
something soft. He had an idea
that new Polo club clovcrness and a
Wallop practiced In many a hard bout
in the Bronx would make the French
man curl up and quit. So he seized
tho first opening and drove a crash
ing rigfct over on the tip of the in
vader'a chin.
That was a fatal mistake. Ledoux,
having politely allowed Battling Red
dy the flra.t punch, fairly exploded into
action, With a sudden rush he
swarmed all over Reddy Swish! bang!
went his gloves. Reddy, carried off his
feet by tle fury of the attack, was
battered from aide to side of tho ring.
Compelled to bend over and cross his
arras to block the blowb that beat up
on him from every angle, he stalled
tho round out.
In tho beginning of the second, Red
dy, o must have a Bhort memory,
made the mistake again. He drove two
rights to thc French boy's chin, put

Has Johnny Kllbane been trying to

from Johnstown, Pa., that the suppos

champion's sparring partner. If this
proves true, and the matter Is under
Investigation now, then this same
Johnny Kilbane Is taking the shortest

Bure way to lasting succesB. I have
this from one of the oldost fighters In
the business, who has tried "all
routes," and found, when perhaps too
late, how futile it Ib to try deception
on tho great public.
Kilbane was received with the hon
ors of a king on his return to Cleve
land after winning the title from At
tell. It is certainly a shabby manner
In which to reward those warm-hearted
friends who made his welcome
home possible. I am, of course, taking
for granted that tho statements com
ing from Johnstown are true apd
proven. If thoy are, then Kilbano and
his manager will have ubout as much
explaining to do hb any twain qvor
connected with tho rjng were 'called

Representathes of athletics at the
naval and military academies will
shortly take up the question of a re
newal of the arrangements for the
annual football game, and a serious
difference of opinion over thc date of
the contest will have to bo settled
An agreement covering two seasons
was reached prior to the game of 1911,
and this expired with Saturday's con
test. The army has for a number of
years desired a change to the Sat
urday previous to Thanksgiving day
and negotiations for the game were
near the breaking point when a com
promise wa3 reached. The game in
1911 was played tho Saturday hoforo
Thanksgiving day, and thc game of
1912 was played on the Saturday
following. Now the wholo question
will have to bo taken i;p again and
it is known that the feeling at thc
two institutions has not changed.
It has been Insisted by the repre
sentatives of the army that their team
passes its point bj' the later date
and it is claimed Just as strongly by
the navj people that by reason of the
latoness of the beginning of the sea
son at Annapolis the later date Is
necessary to the full development of
their players. It is believed, bow
ever, that the representatives of tho
two will make arrangomqnts cover
ing terms which will be satisfactory
to both.
