Director Praises S. A. C.
Way of Handling Meet
BY DE WITT VAN COURT
Veteran Los An gelee Instructor
Chet Mclntyre, boxing In
structor of the S. A. C„ is fast
endearing hlmaelf In the hearts
of the amateur boxers of the
Coast. The Far Western
championships have 'about be
come an annual fixture In this
city. If last year'a tournament
Is any criterion, tonight's af
fair at the Arena will gladden
the old eports' hearts. Chet I*
Is a hustler, and it is safe to
say that this year's tournament
will far outdo that of 1916.
Erom one end of the Coaat to the
other, this tournament Is the big
thing In amateur boxing. To win
a Far Western f haciplonfcblpv
means, virtually, an American
(hamplonshlp. and that la the goal
of all amateurs.
Those who witnessed last year's
tournament, went away crying for
more of such sport, and It Is safe
to say that all will be there again
to see them off again, tonight.
There has been a keen rivalry
among the amateurs of Southern
California to see who would be
< hosen to represent that part of the
state. Charlie Barker, Anthony
Slsto and la* rence Kelly were the
lucky ones chosen.
Treatment Excellent
The excellent treatment, good
management and fair decisions of
the S. A. C. and officials of last
year's tournament, has made this
affair a long looked-for trip for our
Southern boy a.
While the 8 A. C. have loat three
of the national champions It will
not deler In the least from the In
terest and earnestness of the box
ers. and several dark horses may
appear, which often happens In
boxing championships. It Is ru
mored that there are several on
hand, trained to the minute.
The contr.it between Lloyd Mad
den and Charlie Barker In last
year's tournament, will not soon be
forgotten by any who were lucky
enongh to witness it. There have
been few such fast and hard-hitting
contests In amateur meets.
The lightweight class seems to
be the most interesting of the
tournament, as it brings together
Tommy Murphy, of Kansas City,
present title holder, and Barker, of
the Los Angeles A. C., and Sam
Ksktelne, of the Olympic club, of
San Eranclsco, who is said to be
a rough, tough and game boxer.
Some of the new and unknown box
ers of this class may prove a sur
prise to the more seasoned and
more experienced boys. Barker is
well known hero and Murphy has
proven his worth many times. A
two-time winner of (he national
championships must be some baby!
Of the little 108-1 b. boys. Law
rence Kelly, of the L. A. A. C.,j
seems to have a slight advantage,
due to his experience in tourna
ments. wren co won second
prize several years ago In the Pa

a decision from him last August in

himself to the limit to win.

There is a decided difference be

boxes purely for the glory and
prize he wins, while the semi-pro

of action from start to finish.
While on the Job. I wish to con
tiadict the rumor, that I have been
objecting to Mr. Charles Hulen
and Jimmy Carroll as judge* of
this tournament. It was my one
wish before leaving Los Angelea
that the S. A. C. would be lucky
enough to secure the services of
these gentlemen. But have learned
since that Mr. Hulen has refused
to act and that Mr. Carroll is un
i hie to officiate. We are all mora
than satisfied to leave those mat
ters entirely In the hands of Chet
Mclntyre and the S. A. C. and
sblde strictly to their rullngg and
whoever they have choscn are good
erongh for us. 1 am too familiar
with the judgment and good sports
manship of the S. A. C. sportsmen
to ever allow such a thought to
enter my hesd.
It Is untrue.
