Germans Adopt
Yankee Sports
Boxers From the United States
Find Rich Pickings and
Easy Bouts.
Civilians as Well as Military Engage
in Games—Workers Suspicious
of Middle Class Clubs, but
Have Many Themselves.
American sports have become the
rage in Germany. The few American
boxers who have filtered into Ger
many have found rich pickings aud
easy bouts. Recently in Munich I saw
a bout between a clever German pro
fessional and a young German-Amerl
can, says a correspondent of the
New York Herald. The German had
the footwork technique of a fencer,
and he always mude a regulation num
ber of swings before placing a blow.
He also had several extremely pretty
fancy steps with his feet. The young
American was a trifle wild and un
scientific, but he had learned how to
use his fists in Milwaukee. He was all
over the ring, until finally he stretched
the old school scientist out on the mat
in the third round.
This Instance Is one common in Ger
man sports generally. The old con
ventional etiquette games in which
people learned to defend their honor
are giving way to sports which people
play and pay to see for the fun of the
Duelllnn Yields to Football.
Mensur, the old formal duelling, and
gymnastics, the only purpose of which
was to give athletes a chance to dis
play their muscles, are giving way to
football and track sports. If the
Hohenzollerns hope to win their way
back to the hearts of the German
masses they must discard their plumed
helmets and shining armor and come
back In football togs. The young
i princes must make a name In races or
track meets and show a willingness to
rub elbows with the crowd at the races
and themselves take part In track
As long as exercise meant drill, some
thing connected with duty, German
youth did It because they had to. and
tried then to offset the effects by over
eating and drinking and complete In
ertia out of hours. Their distaste for
sports began in the schools, where
they had only drills preparing them to
be soldiers.
German universities had a way of
mixing sports Just as they did learn
ing, with stiff collars, court etiquette
and fifteenth century Ideals of honor.
Only duelling could thrive In this at
mosphere, and this could be defined as
blood letting Intimately connected with
much smoke, more beer and mostly
formality. Such sports were marks of
social superiority and never a pastime.
To be sure, tennis had begun to come
in but it was made more a rendezvous
and tearoom than a sport.
The only organization where physical
exercise held sway were the turn
verelns, gymnastic societies, such as
those In the middle West in America.
But these, too, were crippled by the
efforts of political parties and the
Government to nationalize and par
ticularize them. They became and
still are entangled in political preju

dices. The burgers have their turn
verelns and the workers have theirs.
Under no circumstances would they
think of contaminating each other by
having a meet. Indeed the workers
are more exclusive, Insisting that
members have union cards and In some
clubs that they be members of Socialist
Atmosphere of Democracy.
The fall of the Hohenzollems, the
end of universal service and the
gradual spread of democratic Ideas
has created an atmosphere for the
kind of sports which people follow to
enjoy themselves. American welfare
organizations In Germany ar^ over
flooded with requests for trnlning In
sports and equipment. The world
student federation movement has made
this a part of Its work here. Several
American sport experts have been
coaching secrets of soccer and track
One of the army trainers with the
Coblenz forces has been offered nn at
tractive post In Germnny when the
army of occupation goes home. In
Dresden and Halle the students have
laid out track and athletic fields on
their own Initiative.
Soccer has become almost the na
tional game. Swiss, Dutch and Aus
trian teams come to Berlin to play.
Some time ago a team of British sol
diers from the Berlin military mission
met a team from the German military
police. As might have been expected
nationalists on both sides were highly
scandalized, but the men enjoyed
A significant transformation also
has taken plnce In the German army.
Now that service is no longer com
pulsory the German staff has had to
make it attractive. The new drill
hooks In nddltion to prescribing setting
up exercises have a Inrge place for
sports. Army championship games
were held in the Berlin stadium this
summer. They had running, shot put
ting and swimming, organized as
elimination contests. Some of the
running was military, with full pack,
bu< most of It was on American sport
Boxing and football are not, how
ever, Included as compulsory. The
major in charge of this training told
me that these games are permitted
but because they Involve a certain
amount of bodily risk the army does
net want to face the responsibility ol
having to pay damages for injuries.

sociations In sports might make It
possible for the German staff to train
a large number of civilians for ulti
mate warfare.
Sports have taken on a popularity in
Germany with the men on the street
which never existed before, and crowds
attend the track meets. When there

I saw a communist meeting In Dues
seldorf scatter while an orator was
harranguing for domination of tin
proletariat, not because the police
j were raiding, but because a cycle race
was scheduled on tire square.
But political considerations still
continue to determine lineups in sports
more than mere qualifications. Tli«
workers continue to he highly suspi
cious of middle class sporting organ
izatlons, but they are tlie llrst in in
see the gtlmes. They have enormous
vereins of their own, totaling sonic
2,000,000 members. Arriving at Dres

no room to be had because workmen's
Saxon turnverein was holding an an
nual meet the following day. Next
day I watched their parade. 15,000
strong, and saw a part of the game.
They came as a delegation of 20.000.
Men of all ages were in line. Many
of them heavy, ldg-handed. angular
workers. Muscular strength they had.
hut were clumsy and green at their
games. But they were full of enthusi
asm and energy, and took part from a
real love of sports. The political angle
to these games was the presence of
workers’ delegations from Austria and
Bohemia. One Dresden placard pho
tographer showed “Yesterday,” a re
view of the Imperial guard by his
majesty, Wilhelm II, and under It “To
day,” showing the 15,000 workers at
their games. The heading over the
picture was “Strength Gives Victory.”
Mention of the Olympic games Is a
delicate subject In German sporting
circles. They would like to go to
Paris, even though many hacks would

side contracts and participate in any

The most important period in the
process of applying nutrition to the
repair of the body is while you are
asleep. For the most favorable trans
