The New Orleans Lawn Tennis Chip i.-: the oldest in the nation. It wa.s established in 187B, almost two score years before Maurice E. McLoughlin brought what had been a lofty society game to the people. The first gloved boxing bout, replacing more brutal bare-knuckle battles, was fought in St. Bernard parish, just outside the city. It wa.s in New Orleans. Sept. 7, 1892, thai the young and highly scientific young bank clerk, James J. Corbett, rcvolulioni/ed ihe beak busting business in knocking out John L, .Sullivan.

CALLED GREATEST SINCE PHAR LAP" SANTA CLAUS and COMPANY Reserve Power Is Need in Cage Game Game, Played .at. High Speed, Calls for More Players By ORLO ROBERTSON NEW YORK-(/P)-Basketball, the game Dr. James Naismith fashioned from a peach basket and a soccer ball 46 years ago, underwent one of its most radical changes this year when the center jump was eliminated. The rules committee legislated against the jump system of putting the ball into play at the start or each period and after a goal had been scored with the hopes it would do away with some of the advantage held by tall players. Early results this season have shown that it not only has done that but has speeded up the game until now a team's success may well depend on its reserve-power. No longer can five or six men step through a game at top tpeed, as there is no letup when the ball is being returned to the center circle, as in the past. As an additional curb on tall players, the rules committee prohibited a player from reaching above the basket and tipping the ball out. The committee also attempted to clarify the blocking and screening rule 'which has been interpreted differently in various sections. It rJed that a player is entitled to any unoccupied spot on the floor providing he takes the position three feet away from an opposing player and does not take the position with intentions of blocking a man with or without the ball.
