In the general estimate as to what constitutes truo Americanism It hardly will be denied that the man who un selfishly elves his time nnd talonti In an effort to comfort and entertain the boys who, risked life and limb In the , recent war is deserving of 100 per cent rating. t For thin reason the Boxers Loyalty ,""lioague, which Includes in Its member ship nearly every boxer In America, many of them prominent but more un known to fame, yet faithful to their cause, has earned the hoartfelt grati tude of every wounded hero now recu perating on ills natlvo soils and Is en titled to the sincere thanks of the pub lic. From a modest. Inconspicuous begin ning the league has developed Into a large, powerful organization with a won derful capacity for entertaining conva lescent soldiers with spirited boxing bouts that have been thrilling In action and vigor. Whllo the limit of rounds has been three, the boxers have crowded more real fighting into that spaco of time than Is to bo seen In many long distance contests between champions. Arrange Bonis on Short Notice. These 'bouts aro staged In the base hos pitals where the soldiers aro conva lescing and have been arranged fre quently on such short notice that the ring has been formed by the crippled eoldlers and the ring floor has not been padded. Yet all these drawbacks have speedily been forgotten when the boxers Kot Into action, and the enthusiasm of the onlookers has been so contagious that the fighters have redoubled their efforts to please. There 1s not a base hospital within striking distance of New York that'has "been overlooked by the members of the league, and when It Is considered that the members and officials have paid all their own expenses their nctlon Is all the more praiseworthy. Thfll boxers hax-e sacrificed profitable engagements In or der to give their services In the worthy cause, and It Is questionable If any or ganization has done moro since the close of the vfar to make llfo bearable to the boys who "bore the brunt of battle In Franco. In view of the fact that .boxers are very well compensated for their efforts In the ring tho sacrifices of the members of the league can be appreciated. Dan Morgan Orlslantor. The Idea of the Boxers Loj alty League orlgnlalcd In the fertile brain of Dan Moyistn, one of the best known managers "i noxers in America, ana Tom Cassldy a, New Jersey sportsman. Morgan is president of the league nnd has worked unremittingly day and night for months past to make the association a success. in these efforts he haE been backed un bv hard, conscientious work on the part of casr.luy. Morgan manages a large number of boxers, and while there Is naturally much jealousy among me rival boxers and managers Morgan Is on such excellent terms with all concerned that thero was n general demand that he take the presl Oncy. Tho league ha? no high salaried offi cials and the president does not even receive a dollar a year. t Any man who helps the boxers to get , to and from tho hospitals whore the routs are to be fought automatically be comes a vice-president. ' Morgan was named as president eight rnonths ago, and since that time the membera of the league have fought an nwago of thlrty-flo rounds a night ex cepting Sundays. If tho same quality of boxing was put on in an ordinary boxing ciut the cost to tho promoter would not be less than '52,. .00 on each occasion. OOQ Boxers Entertnln. An Interesting fact of the organiza tion Is that fully 600 boxers have riven their best services to tho cause and that VO per cent, of tho entertainers have worn the uniform of tho United States navy or army. It should not be Imair. Ji.ed that the boxers wfio have gone night s niter nignt to the hospitals and fought , for tho entertainment of tho wounded Foldlers have Indulged In lovo taps and emerged unscathed. President Morgan nnd Vice-President Cassldy have Im pressed It on tho entertainers that punches were not to bo held back, and tho result has been oomo of the hardest fighting ever seen In n ring. Knockouts have been frequent. In many Instances boxers' on leaving the hospital were ro marked with black eyes and bruised faces as to give the lmpres Hon that they needed hospital treatment themselves. Fmoko Kelly, a huge negro, has been one of the bublest boxers of tho loaguo. I To has had eome trying experiences, but nlways keeps a wide smile on his face. No matter how badly he Is maltroited Kelly at the close assures the soldiers he would be pleased to lore a leg in so good u cause. Vounir I.ippe n Busy Boxer. Yufl? Llppe, ngod Hi, tW'ffungcst member uf the league, who has boxed six nlghtfi a week for months, has been stepped once or twice, received many knockdowns and been bruised, but lie rmllC3 and arswers the call every time Ills services aro asked for. Jack Brltton, former welter cham pion, who Is ncarlng his thirty-seventh year, has Ueen tho most Industrious of nil the lea sue members. Ho la always locoHed with shouts of welcome when lio appears for a bout. Billy Grupp's Gymnasium, 252 West llfith etrcet, Is the hcadquartera of tho league and Billy Is tho official referee of the organization. Grupp would box for tho cnuse only that he Is recovering from a Eevero Illness. Thereforo ho In. lists on being tho third man In the ring at all the entertainments. Peter Primly In tho official an nourror. Ho has attended nearly ovcry t-rrlcH of bout Jno Humphroy3 ulio has lent his olco to tho cause. Ilntertnlnrd nt OtUrlllc Without doubt tho most remarkable feat of tho league was In giving an rntertalnmcnt at Base llot-pltal No. S, Otlsvllln, N. Y. It had been arranged that tho boxing would take placo in tho main reception room, but on arrlv Ing there tho league officials wore In f armed that JOo bed ridden wounded heroes would be unable to get to the J reception room nnd President Morgan then rearranged hli plans so as to give fill tntei ta Inment. In nnl, ,f tl.A . teen wards of the hospit.il, covering, two rnlkfi of ground.

American methods In tho promoting of pugilism hno ico- lutlonlzed tho eport in this city. For many ycaro past U10 bouts at tho Na tional Sporting Club havo been the last word In pugilism here, and nil others wero regarded as minor events. Every body of Importance had a membership card In the club, nnd nn lnc to the limited seating capacity of the Covcr.t Garden structure, thero being room In boxing arena for loss thnn 1,500, aa high as 150 a seat ha3 been charged. On oc casions when Important bouts wero staged tho overcrowding was very un- comfortnblo to say tho least. cnarlc.i Cochrane, n wldo awake the atrical promoter, saw the drawbacks connected with bouts nt tho National club and determined to provldo a place where boxing could bo viewed with com fort to the onlookers. Immediately after tho cessation of hostilities Cochrane ob tained n lcaso of tho Holborn Stadium. which will scat fully 12,000 persons, and has arranged many Important matches. It looks like a successful venture. But Cochrane accomplished more thnn he anticipated. He hai epurrcd the great National Sporting Club to n condi tion of active rivalry, and boxing patrons arc confronted with the spectnelo of that ancient and honorable organization going Into the field nnd competing with the young promoter. The National club, (hrouph lt man ager, A. F. Bettlnson, has leased Holland Park, nn enclosed stadium with n ca pacity of- 12.000 pfr?onr. r.nd In- future will hold all Us boxing contests In that arena. With Holborn and Holland stadiums In keen competition, boxing In this city promises to have nn unex ampled run of prosperity. Thero Is no doubt It will offer a splendid opening to tho great mass of boxers In America, not to speak of the flno ocean trip without submaiine dangers, No iv Tlngllah Billing Plirnom. Although Bombadlor Wells appears to havo been eliminated from tho henvy wetght competition, thero Is considerable promising heavyweight timber here. In eluding Beckott, Goddard nnd McCor mlck. McCormlck particularly is a good looking proposition. Although now In (ho middleweight class ho Is growing so rapidly ho tSun will bo a full fledged heavyweight. His eolo fault at present Is lack of defence or rather defiance of punishment. In the fulness of his confident youth, McCormlck allowed himself to bn hit In his contest with Tom (Summer when he could have avoided tho blows. He seemed to spurn the Idea of tho Itothor ham man being able to hurt. A Great LHtTc Golfer. Tho world of golf has lost one of Its most brilliant players In Tom Ball, win has Huccumbcd In pneumonia following Influenza, (leorgo Duncan, tho most meleoMc of nil our professional players, held plcndfnstly. to tho view, which he more thin onco expressed to mo, that Hail wns the greatest goiftr 111 mo world, Truo, lie never won llm chain ploushlp, though ho was runner up to cJOHNNY CLINTON, PROMISING CANDIDATE FOR.

In delicate play on the wrist ho was to golf what Ilanjl once as to crlokct. Ono 0 tho unrealized ambi tions of his Ufa was to visit Amerloa, and he had groat hopes of carrying ojt this plan In tho near future. A trifling dispute with a farmer nbotlt tho tarring of a roof, which ended In tho tar brush coming In contact with tho farmer's face, was Ball's introduc tion to tho golf links, causing him to glvo up agricultural pursuits for the joyous existence of a Hoylako caddlc. Open Golf Tonrnniucn t. Tho official announcement Is now mada that tho six cluba controlling the open golf championship havo unani mously decided "that thero bo no open chamlponshlp In 1919." In the meantime tho St. Anne's Old Links Club havo completed their ar rangements for a profession (open) vic tory tournament. This will be held on Juno 20 and 21, nnd play will be over 72 holes, medal play rules, for prizes ag gregating 1200 as follows: First prize. 175; second prize, 150; third prize, 23 ; fourth prize, X13; fifth prize, 10, and flvo prizes of 13 each. More Cricket Sncrgcstlons. No one contends that tho two day masch with longer V.ourS of pUy will euro all tho lis ofcrlekot, nnd It Is rather unfortunato that other changes are not to bo made In a season which at i best can only bn nn experimental one, I Ono had little sympathy with tho time I ;avlng proposal to Increase the number of balls In tho over to eight. The fow seconds gained might still bo mado up, without any extra utraln on the bowler. If the fieldsmen would cogent to com promise with dejnlly to tho extent of crossing over with moro alacrity. Why not do It navy fashion at the double? But ono nlteratlon might bo mado which would not lnterfero with any fundamental principle of the game, This Is In the method of making tho choice of Innings. Koir, of course, It Is done by tho call, lucky or otherwise, to tho toss of a coin. I remomber a county captain telling mn that he nlways claled "heads" when gold or copper coins wero thrown up, and talis when a sliver one was used. "And you would bo surprised how woll It anawercd," bo added. You will remember, too, that when F. fl, Jackson captained tho Kngland eleven, ho beat Darling In every one of the tlvo test matches for choice of In nings. Downright luck, na Jackson said. It was. Tho Australians thought so, too. (iltlBONS GUTS A HOLT. St. Lot-is, Mo.. Marc'i 13.

P.obfrt Frledrl-h of Kentucky, rho wrestles under the namo of Stranglcr Iewls, la matched to meet Wladfk Ebyrako In a bout to a finish at Madi son Square Garden next Friday night. Tha managers of the event declare that In order to be declared the winner a con testant must gain at least one fall, and that unlcst a fall Is obtained the spec tators will positively have their money returned, an Innovation In the wrestling game. Ltwls, who recently was discharged from the United States army, has twlco beaten Zbyssko, onco at the Manhattan Opera House tournament, nnd again last year In the West. Lowls won each tlmo with the headloclt, and ?ie recently gained a fall over Htecher wit!) th same lock. T.ewls therefore Is tho runner up to Champion Karl Caddock, who still U In Franco with tho American army, and who despito all statements to tha con trary has not formally retired from tho wrestling game. Until Caddock an nounces his retirement or Is beaten his title oannot be claimed by anyone else. The offer of the managers to return money unless thero Is a fall has been mado because of the Adverse criticism of tho sport duo to the Insincerity of wrestlers In past matches. Whllo a wrestling bout eonteste.1 on Its merits, ns the management Insists tho one In tho Garden this week will be. Is a very Interesting event, the public hag been so frequently deceived It cannot bo blamed for entertaining suspicions every tlmo a match Is announced. Thero Is a epoelfie remedy for this. That la for the promoters and grapplers to place the sport on a basis where It could bo properly regulated. It would not be a diflicult matter for the pro moters tv havo a clause Inserted In the Glbb? Boxing bill providing or the su pervision nnd regulation of wrestling by the commission appointed to handle boxing. Prospects for baseball, boxing and nil branches of professional sport never were so bright, nnd the wrestlers havo flno chance to share. In tho general sport prosperity it public confldenco is restored in tho sport. TUFTS TO PLAY HARVARD. rnotlmll Schedule, IIovreTer, May Bring- Out Crimson Second Team, Special Dttpatch to Tni flrx.

A new field of sport has been opened and as soon ns International turmoil settles flags, of Europe and America, will fly on nltplnncs contesting for world trophies and records. Automobiles and motor boats mint give way to the demands of tho air piano for recognition, for thero Is no thrill of the rnces to which wo haie become acquainted that would not bo duplicated, with embellishments. In aeronautical contests. Orand tdand crowds Invariably aro subject to shatp . breathing when tho nutomoblltn round tho sharp corners, but what of tho sus pense when 0J1 nlrplane spins on a wlag tlp around banner marking tho aerial courso7 Motor boating baa Its charm for a. limited few, but tho boat of tho air, leaving tho water nnd Increasing Its speed over that which jumps from wavo to wave, will win thousands of sport men who havo found no Joy In the races of water craft. Lightning; Speed. Greatest of all advantages Is, of course, tho superspeed to bo found In the airplane No other machine of land or wator has been nblo to attain tha speed which has becomo common with the airplane. One hundred and fifty miles nn hour just two and a half mllos a minute Is ordinary. Official Government records show a speed of ICS 2-3 miles an hour made In this country after any friendly wind Influ ence has been discounted. This is th fastest which any mechanical device has ever travelled, without the asslstanco of a breeze. It Is Impossible to estimate how fast ftfrplnnes have travelled with the wind behind them. Acrobatics In tho nlr Is still another feature which will appeal to tho sports men, who must tiro of seeing In old time races nothing but tho samo thing over and over again. Tho air Is prolific with possibilities that amid never bo found on land or water. The motorist must content himself with following a marked rond, careful lest his machine upset. But how different with tho aviator! Thero 1 nothing In tho air Quito so thrilling, (julte eo enjoyable n-i turning over nnd over and speeding your machine away from the reslstcred course. Society folk revel In steeplechase ex citement, finding In tho obstacle races a "greater enjoyment than is held In the motor contests. Can you visualize an aerial steeplechase? It may bo out of the question to placo hurdles and ob stacles In the air, but It would be easy to require certain manoeuvres at stated points along the course Tho thrill to tho spectators when a horse comes n. cropper Is n nothing compared to seeing a plane fall Into a tall spin when coming out from a loop. The Difference. The line of vision for spectators st aerial entertainments is unlimited, with no fences or buildings In tho way. He who watches an automobile race catcher a gllmpso of color, almost hidden In a cloud of dust. Behind this comes another I flash, and tho raco Is over. it itii nrndi r,iim 11 muij ie un ferent. Bleachers would bo constructed around tho airdrome to permit spec tators viewing thn ships taking off and landing; and clouds would bo tho only interfcrenco to prevent a clear view of tho thlps around any courso that would be spoclfied. What I havo said boforo deals with tho spectators. I cannot begin to de scribe the additional thrill that will como to tho performer. There Is 110 game In tho world with half tho ex hilaration of flying; thero Is nothing that drives tho rod blood through j-our vein-) as does tho feel of tho nlr the realiza tion that you are master In a new clement without limit or bounds. Sport pages of to-morrow aro going to bo aviation pages, for Hying Is un doubtedly the greatest sport In tha world for both actor and rpectutor. PROJAN HIGH SCORER. Bnggrd 1)1) Points for C. C. X. T.
