Southwestern Lightweight Title Claimant wins 10 Bound Verdict. r Tommy Carter claimant of the southwestern lightweight title won. a ten round decision over Chet Neff, of Seattle, Tuesday night at Miami, out boxing the coast mixer in virtually every round, according to word re ceived by The Herald sports. Carter fought a 15 round draw with Charles Crosier, lightweight champ ion of the Pacific fleet last Friday night. Crozier challenged the winner of the Neff-Cartr engagement at HiamV&nd it is probable that he will be given a bout there with Carter in the near futare.

The special telegram xouows: Llew Edwards Is Real Champ Shows Class In Lawler Bout By TOM S. ANDREWS. MILWAUKEE, "Wis, Aug. II. There is little doubt that climatic con ditions affect fighters as well as other athletes when they change from one country to another. That has been the experience of American fighters when they have first landed in Australia and the Astlpodeans have bad the same experience coming to the United States. When Uew Edwardc, Australian lightweight champion, arrived in America last spring and fought Hlchie Mitchell in Milwaukee he plainly showed the effects of the chance of climate. Last week he returned from England to again fight in Milwaukee, meeting Jack Lewler. the southern champion, and he performed much better, but not up to his Australian form. However, the bout with Law ler should put Edwards on edge for any others in the states and no doubt he will do better from now on. He worked fast with Lawler. be ing the aggressor all the way and winning the newspaper erdict.

Harry Frazee. nrincloal nwnf the Boston Red Sox, has purchased tne Harris theater in New York- oitv and will change the name of it to the r-raiee ineater. He has a good left when he wants lo uae it but la altogether too careful with it aid for that reason does not show at his best Jack would do much better by cultivating hU left hand still more He is a glutton for mixing and can take the gaff without wincing. Edwards was not so open as when he met Richie Mitchell and he kept his Jaw pretty well protected. HI ag gressive style, however Is what the fars liked and against a man of the same kind he would show to great ndantage. Dundee and Edwards would sure be a whale of a fight. Two other Australians were on. the card with Edwards and both showed the effects- of the change of climate. Vince Blackburn, ex-bantam champ Ion of the Antipodes, was to have met Joe Barman, but the latter was taken hll and Joe Mandell of Rockford. I1L, substituted and he proved a tartar. Was Snappy Bout. Blackburn had the verdict on points, but the little fellow opposing him put up a great fight and earned the plaudits of the crowd. Blackburn had an advantage of eight pounds in weight. He started off well, but Mandell met him with right hand swings that made him a bit careful. Toward the seventh round Blackburn tired, but he finished well in the ninth and tenth nd had the Rock ford lad leg weary. It was a wonder ful battle between little fellows. Blackburn needs to become better acclimated be tore tackling Burmail and Herman. He has the class. though, and will no doubt come along fine. Tommy Ryan. Australian J 3 pounder, gave Bud Christlano the fight of his young life for nine rounds and then became ex hausted so much so that the referee decided it best to stop the contest while Tommy was sitting on his knee and laughing at his position. Like Blackburn he needs to become more acemated before tackling tough youngsters like Christlano.

It is an evil In that it has wrought a vital Injury to the nation by changing woman's ideals toward the home. It has taught her to shift maternal resnonsitillty to the state. It underestimated home influences and substituted legislative enact ments for them. For more than a century women have been strugsUns to secure the ballot, bellevine that they might coerce where they had failed to per suade, and we have our present de plorable and sociologic conditions with increase of crime ana Intemper ance Juvenile crime alarmingly so. None of the reforms promised by suffrage advocates have been ful filled and it is only fair to say that the strongest argument against woman suffrage are the conditions that obtain where it has been the longest in operation. Woman suffrage Is an injustice be cause it Is a minority measure forced on the majority of women against their sentiments and wishes. Mrs. Ella w. Winston. WHT BAILEY, W03IC3TT Van Horn. Texas.

I have read the letter In The Her ald written by a motorist on the sub ject of an army truck running down a spray cart and a couple of Mexicans driving a team of horses on the coun ty road. Perhaps he doesn't realize that a soldier is Just as liable to make a mistake as anyone else. In states other tnan Texas, a ngnt vehicle elves war to a heavy vehicle at all times when they meet on the road, due to the fact that the heavier vehicle has to stay where the road Is solid, or in many eases get stuck where the road Is either sandy as Is the case on the side of the concrete roads here, or muddy as is the case in many other parts of the country at almost all times of the year. I have had experience an vine cars other than army cars around El Paso, and have had the road hogged almost every time I met another car, as soon- as the driver or tne otner car discov ered that a tnan in uniform was driv ing my car.

We know it fattens on the mtserr of the Boor, the degrada tion of workers and the brutalizing toll of women and children. Jnst as firoflteering grows, so grows pauper sm. anarchy and revolution. El Paso has only to look across the Hlo Grande to see what profiteer ing came to. Only cooperation can stop profiteering, and I wish the chamber of commerce and the labor unions could stop talking about open and closed shops and find a market for the wool crop and then find a way to buy clothing and sugar more reasonable (and other things and crops, of course.). They would have to cut out the profiteer to do It, but all they would have to do would be to take a lead pencil and figure out what waeres. hours and prices should be. They can never do it with a bayonet; it has been tried for thousands of years be- lore, as well as ior tne last xew. The profiteer uses the lead pencil and he always wins until revolution comes and overthrows him. then the revolutionists become the profiteers ana maiory repwu useix. Cooperation should not create bloody revolution, for the reason that it would not injure more than 39.000 millionaires in the United States, wnue it wouia oenexit iiu.sva.vog others. S. H.
