Telling Boxer He's Getting Old,
Hardest Task of All,
He Says
plated coup of opposing managers
aud tricks of present-day brainy box
A New’ Yorker by birth and train
ing, Idchtensteln played semi-profes
sional bull as a youngster and also
was an amateur boxer. He says he
never "amounted to a tinker’s dam
as a fighter." During his career as
fight manager he has handled the af
fairs of over 200 pugilists.
"In the ring," he says, "a boxer
must do his own thinking. There is
no use talking to him, but you can
occasionally signal him with your
hands as I do with Clabby, telling
him when to take it easy and when to
come fast. Between rounds boys of
the Clabby type need little handling,
but there are one hundred and one
things to which the manager cau turn
his bund.
"Thp hardest thing I have ever un
dertaken with boxers is to tell them
that they are getting too old and too
slow for the ring. They always re
sent that. You’ve got to let them
know Indirectly. Then if they won’t
take your tip It is useless to advise
them further.’’
Walter Shanley, 21 years old, of
Syracuse, N. Y., and Hkrry Keller, 21.
who says he lives In Kalamazoo, were
captured, Wednesday afternoon, after
a bold daylight robbery lu the store
of Hughes £: Hatcher, No. 333 Wood
ward ave.
The young men had announced that
they wanted to buy some furnishing
goods, ami were examining shirts,
neckties and other goods, when they
suddenly grabbed uu armful apiece
and bolted for the door, pursued by
Lester Hat her aud Fred A. Hughes.
The two thieves hailed a passing
automobile, but the driver refused to
take them in, and they were soon
overhauled by the store proprietors.
They gave battle, but Patrolman Role
ert Evans hurried to the scene and
arrested Shanley and Keller, who hud
thrown away much of their plunder
as they ran. but still had several ties
and gloves, some alleged to have been
stolen from other stores.
Shanley was identified by Itetectlve
Charles Carmody as a man arrested
here for shoplifting last September,
under the name of Stanley Nuse.

memorate Ratification by U.
S. of Ghent Treaty
NEW YORK, Deo. 24.—The people
of the United States and Great Brit

dredth anniversary of the signing of
the Treaty of Ghent, by reminding
themselves that the day marks a cen

• The original plans called for a
series of celebrations in this coun
try and across the water. It was to
have begun in Ghent Christmas eve
with a banquet tendered by the burg
omaster to GO representatives of the
United States, Go Englishmen and 60
Canadians in the hall where the
treaty wus signed, but this was upset
by the fact that the ancient Belgian
city ncnv r is occupied by the Germans,
with whom England is at war.
To mark the day, the American
committee and the British commit
tee, which have been arranging for
tho peace ceutenury, issued commun
ications for simultaneous publication
this morning in the newspapers in
England and the United States.
Tiie British statement expresses the
hope that "the disarmed frontier be
tween the United Btates and Canada
may long continue as ait example to
the world of the safe defense of
mutual respect and trust in the af
fairs of nations," and prays that "the
peace between the British and Amer
ican democracies which has so long
endured may never be broken.’’
The British peace centenary com
mittee has purchased Sulgrave Man
or, the ancestral home of George
Washington in England, which was
to be presented to she American
people. This and other features of
the celebration are to be postponed
until after the war.
Tho American committee, notwith
standing the war, purposes to carry
out in part its original Intention to
celebrate the peace centenary, and
in a communication Issued last night
over the signature of a number of
widely-known citizens, urges suitable
commemoration of the ratification of
the treaty by the United States,

To Remain Class C.
SAOINAW. Mich., Dec. 24.—The
South Michigan league will remain in
Claes C, it has been decided, rather
than jump to Class B for the sake
of the larger receipts from drafts.
Smaller salary limit is the reason.
Just imagine the feelings of those
