THE RULE OF THE WEST We have commented upon the fact bofore that Great Britain, In cluding England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and Australia, 60,000,000 or thereabouts, with aU her recorda in aport, hasn't put forward a good heavyweight in thirty years. (Barring Fitssimmons, who left Cornwall tor Australia to make his fighting fame in America.) But what about fhat sectiol of the United States resting east of the Mississippi river? In this section over 80,000,000 of the 110,000,000 inhabitants live, with boxing encouraged in many states. Yet what first class heavyweight have these 80,000,000 furnished the game since the passing of John L. Sullivan, nearly thirty years ago? Among lighter weights Great Britain has furnished Freddie Welsh, Owen Moran, Jimmy Wilde and others. Among lightweights the east has furnished Joe. Gans; Terry Mc Govern, Benny Leonard and others But the heavyweight mystery still remains. THE MONOPOLY The eastern half of the United States, plus the portion of Great Britain mentioned, has somethlig over 30,000,000 souls. The western half of the United States has possibly 85,000,000 on its roster. , The margin hero is 5 to 1 against the west in the way of popula tion. But observe the heavyweight register in detail: J. J. Corbett, California. Robert Fltsslmmons, Cornwall-Australia -America. J. J. Jeffries, California. . Jack Johnson, Texas. Jess Wlllard, Kansas. Jack Dempsey, Colorado, J In other sports and at other weights - polo, tennis, track and field, nir inn. dtstanrn mnnlna. rowing, football there has been no such predominance on the part of the west. But In the way of heavywolghf boxers the monopoly has been com plete 100 per cent, complete. , Among the lightweights the east has a Gans, a McGovern and a Leonard to match against a Nelson, a Wolgst an da Britt But the east has had no heavyweight worth mentioning to match against a champion produced by California, Texas, Kansas or Colorado. Why? By way of killing an idle day you can do your own con jecturing. Your guess is as good as ours. "A woodless America," writes Gilford Pinchot in Field and Stream, "would be a stricken nation." The point is to make a nation see it that has been blind for fifty years and is still in the act of stilling a yawn any time tho subject Is mentioned. The only rebuttal we ever got to tho argument was this: "What does any one care what happens to the country fifty years from now?" VANDY PLAYS MICHIGAN FIVE NEW YEAR'S DAY Nashville. Tenn., Pec.

I have brought out a team that Is the best In the middle west. I believe forks bnokhome Who are aware of tho high standard of mtdwestern football will also be proud of Ohio State' showing here." Coach Smith's view: "The California team haa been three years In Its making. It has Tiow reached the height of form. I have great respect for football as played In the middle west, but after tomorrow's game I believe the American public will find Pacific coast methods are the equal of any used In any other part of the country."
