Believing that the minors will de mand representation of some kind on the governing body of the game, the majors are now ready, it is believed, to return to the com mission plan and let the minors choose a representative to sit with delegates of the majors on the ad visory commitiue to Judge Landis. The minors are quite likely to ap point Mike Sexton as their repre sentative. The commission would have no vote, the various representatives acting merely as a sort of attorney for their constituents in the su preme court of the game. SEEK TO PLACE RING ON PLANE OF 'LADY' FANS Legalized Boxing Which Women May Attend, Advocated. Chicago, Dec. 11. Legalised box ing, which women may attend just as they attend a performance at a. theatre, is the aim of the official head of one organisation in Illinois which has interested itself in the passage of a bill at the next ses sion of the legislature at Spring field. This man believes that with an efficient commission to rule the sport, the boxing shows would find many devotees from the fair sex. "Why shouldn't women attend bouts?" he asked. "And why shouldn't they enjoy them as much as their brothers? During the war, when boxing shows were held at the Great Lakes naval training station and Fort Sheridan, a big percentage of those at the ringside were women. They apparently found nothing repugnant about boxing." More Fair Rings iders. During the last year or two there has been a noticeable increase in the number of women patrons at boxing shows. This would seem to show the fair sex has found some thing of interest In boxing. But of greater importance from our view point is the presence of women at the boxing shows. An example of this was given when Worlds' Cham pion Jack Dempsey fought Gilly Mlske at Benton Harbor last La bor day. In the crowd of more than 11,000 there were many women a rough guess would be that there were 1,000 present and their influence made that boxing show perhaps the most orderly big ring event the writer ever witnessed. - Tone Down Bolsteronnieas. There were plenty of thrills in the three rounds fought with a knockout for the climax, but there was an absence of boisteronsness. The presence of women kept the men within bounds, and their in fluence is certain to work for the betterment of boxing. . In Milwaukee, where bouts are held in the big Auditorium,, many women may be found in the crowds. Some have learned to like boxing so wl, according to Frank Mul kern who operates the National A. C of the Cream city,, that they at tend every show. - Hubbard City, Texas. Dec 10. (United Press.) Chalk up new honors tor Tris Speaker, Cleveland, Ohio, and Hubbard. Texas.

Changing his spikes for bis cleats was a mere difference of setting for his athletic prowess. For on the gridiron Thorpe is ever more superlative. As captain of the Canton (O.I Bulldogs, a professional football team made up of the college star3 of a faw years ago, mostly, his brilliancy continued to assert it self. s When Thorpe '"exhibited his stuff at the Polo ' Grounds recently against the Buffalo Ail-American eleven he was a good 35 'per cent of the Bulldogs' attack. Errorless FeotbalL Referee Tiny Maxwell called that gridiron exhibition the "errorless game in football." The men made a few fumbles and missed passes,' but they didn t rumble with their heads. "It was played by 22 potential football coaches who worked out plays that fitted them individual ly," says Maxwell. "It wasn t spectacular football either, because each team played by the book ami neither could get away wtih any thing." Individual Play. Those who expected to see Thorpe get away for long runs .were disappointed. He doesn't do it any more. The defense in the professional game is much harder to break through. Players are individual stars in their own rights. Their play de pends on what they can do. The men seem to sense the plays. Thorpe is considered one of the hardest men in the" game to tackle. Besides his strength and power the big Indian appears to feel which way the tackier is coming and gives, ground with him so as to keep out of reach. Boosts Pro Game. Thorpe is championing the causo or pro football. He says he be take iu place along' with othir big league sports. Next year he mav nut a team of DrofessionaU in New Tork. In fact, the Cantou- Buffalo game was a sort of trial for this idea. But it didn't draw the crowd the promoters expected. Notwithstand ing the fact .that both teams were made up mainly of former Ail American players but 6.000 people came out to watch them. Just a few weeks previous Rutgers and Nebraska had drawn 30,000. Lacks Enthnsmsm. I So Thorpe's vision doesn't seem so rosy. Most of the spectators saw in it only a mechanical game. There was no loud cheering. The spirit which accompanies collega 'football was lacking. All of which leads one to think that football is perhaps after all more of a spectacle than a game, Without Its setting amid wild cheering and school honor the color is gone. .
