COT TO FIGHT III THE ARGENTINE BOXERS GOING ON SOUTHERN TRIP FIND AUTHORITIES STRICT- NOTES OF ATHLETICS. ELDERLY WOMEN PARTY DELEGATES New York, June 8. The boxers who will make the trip from this country to Argentina to compete in a series of bouts in Buenos Ayres will finds conditions governing contests there considerably from those exist ing in North American rings. Ac cording to the regulations, which are to be made part of the contracts, the pugilists will not receive the sums stipulated in their arrangements un less the spectators are thoroughly satisfied with the contests. While boxing is still far from an established institution in Buenos Ayres, the city authorities have cer tain ideas regarding the conduct of the sport, one of which is that the pugilists must give the spectators their money's worth. As a result the principals are never paid until those who purchased tickets have signified that they are satisfied with the ex hibition. This has been made clear to the boxers who will shortly start for Argentina, by the explanation that if the spectators are not pleased with the efforts of the pugilists their money is returned to them before they leave their seats and the con testants get nothing. In the party will be four negro heavyweights, Sam McVey, Joe Jeanette, Sam Langf ord and Harry Wills, and the understanding is that they will box a round-robin tourna ment for the tegro championship of the world under these conditions. The men will be drawn by lot for the bat tles, the two winners to meet in a Bemi-final and the losers to meet for third place. All the bouts will be twenty round contests with a referee's decision if they go the limit. These bouts will be fought during July and August and before the completion of the tournament it is expected that ar rangements will have been made with Jack Johnson to box the winner for the negro title. Johnson is at pres ent in Spain where he has figured in two recent bouts and it is under stood that he has tentatively accepted the proposition to appear in the Bue nos Ayres ring. - ' The promoter of the bouts in Ar gentina is an amateur boxer of consid erable repute and a man of wealth. He has spent several months touring the various countries in search of pugilis tic talent .for the cominz ring tourna ment. During his recent trip to France he ofered Georgefs Carpen tier, the French champion, something like $100,000 for two bouts in Buenos Ayres, with a further percentage of the gate for the French Red Cross fund. He secured the official consent of the French army authorities for a three-months furlough for Carpen tier, but when he made his offer to the pugilist the latter replied: "No. I fight not for money now, but for France. When the war ends, if I sur vive, I will fight in your country, but not before. Cornell University oarsmen have been trying out another rowing inno vation in training which is reported to work successfully.
