Chanute, Kan., Sept. 10 The Rev. Earl A. Blackman's annual resigna tion again has been rejected by the congregation of the Christian church of Chanute. Once a year, regularly, since the war, the Rev. Mr. Blackman has giv en his parishiners the choice of ac cepting his advocacy of bixing bouts, dancing and pool, or of hiring a new pastor. While the vote each year has been heavily in his favor, it is by no means unanimous. "You will find me in the boxing ring, the dance halls, the lodge halls, the pool halls, perhaps in the alleys, or wherever men congregate, if I continue to preach to the Christian church of Chanute," was the . ulti matum contained in the minister's recent resignation. Not only was the resignation re jected the congregation voted its pastor an increase in salary. Thi3 he refused to accept, declaring he was amply paid, and that he earns something in addition to his salary by refereeing boxing bouts. He makes no secret of the fact. Fur thermore, he declares he has a"dou-1 ble reason for enhancing his earn ing capacity. "Twins recently came to ourj house, he said. "If some person is to be paid for refereeing and I do the work satisfactorily, I ought to have the money to help support those twins." His services as a referee are today in much demand in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. His presence in the ring is regarded as a guarantee of a clean fight. His influence in mak ing boxing a popular sport has been felt throughout this section. It was while he -was chaplain of the 137th infantry of the 85th divi sion in France that the Rev. Mr. Blackman became a devotee of the fistic game. He was known as "the fighting parson of the 35th" and just ly so, for he not only supervised but engaged in many boxing bouts. ' In his own church' the Chanute minister has put. into practice his I sor both boxing and dancing theory that the church should spon- church.
