PACE SIX 10 EifflE OF PHOpCnET Finds Boxing Originating As Sport Has Fallen From High Estate. BY WERNKIt I.At'FKIl NEA Srrvlre Sports Writer . Boxing has sun!: to the level of n racket. The proud old sport that v.-as the idealistic vision of Cud- ffler James Fitsg. orlsmator of Its technical routir.e and the fnsi recognized champion, In 1713. has been chiseled out of nearly every one of the Ideals it once boast :d. From a science of physical proficiency that was meant to teach manliness and solf-ielianee. It has been dpgrndod to n tool lo f.atiate the erecd of criminal harpies, conniving politicians, ehlsel- ers pud gorillas. These factors have played n larep part In its downfall: Control of pugilistic plums and decisions bv political Influence. intimidation by soril]a.s. Financial gain, rather than (he fighters' own physical ability, (jov- crnliiir victories. Boxing commission rivalry thai encourages tnliieuc among rnan- apers and promotccs. Exploitation of pugilistic talent by designing managers. Victimizinp of Hi,, fans l>y an- pointment of Incapable and unscrupulous referees and judges who are leeallv protected. Silly legislation. * * • Boxing has gnne thronph so much Ihat (here Is n question of what Hie sport will stand. It has exhibited In barns and on barges since its Inception, and has been housed In the glltterin? amiilii (heaters of the Golden Era tlmt ended with 0*110 Tminey. It has hidden from the law on sequestered farms, and now. protected by legislation, of one sort or another. It has become what It never was in those fugitive days —an instrument to cheat the fans of a fair deal. Now boxing has furnished one sneclaclc of a Iwnwwcleht cham- nion winning by silling on the floor, and another of n man beluc handed the snmc title bv an atrocious decision. The characters in both of vaudeville sketcbes have been the same—Sohmellne nnd Sharkey. and even now Ihn wnv is bcino or>narcd for a third mating of the twn. /The political influence that entered into both of these cxirava- BRUSHING UP SPORTS L^___(^K.)_ COURIER NEWS By Lauier Ranzns is no .vcrel with who pay thn bill. the fans unbelievable, newsnaperman at The no-foul rule was snsnenrted for the first bout— nnd Schmellntr von on n foul.
