iJ There la n let of excitement In boxing circle ecr the championship
r f tilt tonight. Short-end betters have nu Idea that Kniipns will spring n sur-
' prise because Leenard has net been boxing much and might show the effects
of the long layoff. They point te the Mitchell contest, when Rltchle hung ene
en Benny's jaw In the first round and almost knocked him loose from his title.
Of course, Benny wen the battle when he scored n knockout In the fifth, but
jrhe was en the icrge of taking the long voyage when Mitchell connected. If

i However, this Is only the grandoldepc. It means nothing. Benny boxed

JJwas said that the champion was given a hard battle, but the wlte persons

THE fight should be threicn out in

. Tendler boxed two hard bouts with Sailor Frecdman here and managed
te slide threupb en hnlr-llnn decisions. Mnny believed he was going back,
'nd when he Ien a fifteen-round dccNlen te Kansas they were, sure of it.
However, he met rrcedman lu the CSarden last December nnd knocked Selly

1 Charley White arc the eteians still in action, and Bebby Barrett, Jimmy
Dougherty's young battler, seems te be the most premising of the new crop.

'te meet Jack Britten, the welterweight chnmplen, en March 17, and this
match should be the bigget of the year. The champions met once before In
a six-round bout In Philadelphia. Britten sprang a big surprise nnd In the
fth round had Benny In bad shape, after landing a hard right en the jaw.
We gave the decision te Britten that ulght.

The movement te organize a permanent body te control the twilight sport
la growing rapidly and Mr. Donevnn ibas received many applications for
membership. Last week some twenty-eight clubs were represented, nnd to
night it is expected that at least thirty mere will attend. Among the new
applicants are Straw brldge & Clothier, HiUdale, Chester, Aberfoyle of
Chester; Hatch Meters, St. Barnabas. St. Carthage, Marshall E. Smith
Lit Brethers, Lansdnle, Quaker City Pres, Evening Ledger and the Phila
delphia Manufacturers' League.
Bill Reper, head coach of Princeton, and Judge Patterson, members of
the Arbitration Beard, will address the meeting. They will outline their
plans for the coming season.
There is llttle likelihood of adopting any rules at tonight's meeting.
The organisatien will have te be perfected first, nnd then a committee shall
draw up a constitution and bylaws. The name probably will be the Phila
delphia Baseball Association.
It will take at least a month te get the organization down te a working
basis, and all of the members are working hard te get this done. The game
will benefit when under control of a governing body.
