Twenty boxing bouts of four
i rounds each were put on at the naval
training station near Lake Bluff yes
terday and there were po injuries,
despite the f actf ewof the boys knew
' much about the finer points of box
ing. They -were conditioned and that
prevented any hurts besides a few
bruises. '
Therein lies a lesson for boxing
promoters and enthusiasts generally. J
'The fact that they won't see it does
not lessen its value. Boxing's black
eyes have usually come from fights
between second-rate boys, sent into
the ring without medical inspection.
Injuries and sometimes death have
followed, and the game is judged on
these performances.
Boxing is good, clean sport when
properly conducted. But it will never
eet back on its feet so long as the
people pushing it are profession
promoters trying only to land a piece
of change.
