Abe Attell, in Training To Defend m Title On Washington's Birthday VERNON, Cal., Pel). 20.— Here's a new one in the way of sparring partners that "Abe Attell has put over and he claims It is the llvest hunch that has ever come across in some time. The Idea, or this stunt. Is to give the champ an Ironclad jaw and to strengthen the muscles ,of the neck. It is also great stuff to limber up . Jhe muscles of the shoulders and back. Abe, who is training for his fight with Kilbane on the 22nd, says that the exercise he gets with this dog Is far ahead of any system now used for the same purpose, Including the wrestling tactics adopted by other cham pions to obtain the same results. Every movement of the animal Is fast and unexpected and the twists and er.ks that he gives the stick brings every muscle Into play better than any form of wrestling Invented. Q\}' Los Angeles fight bugs appar ently have experienced a change of heart over night, for today In stead of raven croaks that Abe Attel has "gone back," the thou sand fans who watched him in first training stunts here unani mously declare that he is as fast, If not faster, than ever before. Attell entertained a record crowd at his camp. He boxed ATTELL AT WORK WITH THE MEDICINE BALL. several rounds and did two hours light gym work. He Is happy and husky and laughingly dis paraging of Kllbane's skill. Kllbane's gallery was no less than the champion's. The little Clevelander worked easily until the hour for donning the mlts ar rived. He • then treated the crowd to eight rounds of light ning work. He already is near the stipulated ; weight. .

Leon received a number of offers from the four round pro The .Hold Oufr There's a wall of grief and sadness on the crispy winter air, The baseball managers are bowed in terrible despair— : ';■ The season's due to open and they're eager for the fray; i But, alas, they find the players have decided not to play. . .'_ • There's Kelley who was counted on to knock -(ho fence-boards dowh, He will not sign unless he gets a diamond-studded crown—- His dignity demands It, so he'll stay at home this year And earn his forty plunks a month distributing thubee r. There's Olson, with a box of curves stored in his mighty arm, Declares he's been Insulted, so he'll stay upon the farm, He cannot see six thousand, which is all they offered him—- He'll fish and heave the corn-cobs at the hogs, with speed and vim. .~, There's "Beauty" Dobb, who used to strut in glory on the field; Demanded fifteen thousand and the owner wouldn't yield— So, in a fit of dudgeon, he declares he'll play no more. But hand out halibut and cheese at grandad's country store. There's Axelbaum, so fleet of foot, he's got the catcher's goat; He cries, "They think me easy, by the letter what they wrote— But I'm no sucker, don't you think —they'll get no word from me; m I'll just deliver honey, for my wife, she keeps a bee." And so It goes, the stars all swear they've quit the game for good; Why should they play, when they can toil among the hay and wood; Why should they sell themselves like slaves and wear their lives away, When they can take It easy driving busses by th eday? How beautiful and touching in this day of cruel greed, When grabbing all the coin in sight is everybody's creed, To see these stalwart players curb commercial appetites And shun the filthy lucre, rather than give up their rights. And yet there be, I'm sad to say, some quite suspicious folk, Who look upon these awful threats as nothing but a joke; -*" They tell me Independence, like a cloud shall pass away, And never son of swat shall be discovered, pitching hay.
