Eddie Shevlin', New England's welter weight champion, is instructing Dart mouth students in the tine points of the boxing game. Rivalry is so keen among some of Bos ton's hockey teams that almost any old thing is liable to happen when they meet, on the ice. i Young Mike Donovan, the middleweight' boxer, will try to come back under the" direction of Harry Neary, manager of Midget Smith.
