out for knockout in an amateur tournament which has the boxing fans of a city by the ears. Charters Plane for Trip. Folks are coming from all parts of the central states to see this amateur boxing carnival. A business man in Cincinnati wired last night that he had chartered a plane and would arrive in Chicago at 5 p. tn.

He's an optimistic fan. He hasn't a ticket and after the airplane ride must take his chance of getting one of the precious general admissions. Parties are coming from Springfield. Peoria, South Bend, and Davenport delegation of 330 taxi drivers occupy one section. They want to see Grant Fortney, taxi pilot of Chicago.

First Come First Served. For once a fight show is being held where millions and social prestige have not been shown favors by the box office men. Tex Rickard promulaated the idea that the 600 shouM get the ringside seats at a fight.

The civic uplifters followed Tex's plan when they allotted the best tickets to the Tunney-Dempsey battle on Soldiers' field to civic leaders. The twenty-two thousand tickets to the Intercity classic have been sold through one box officean Improvised box office in the rooms of THE TataUNES public service offices. And they've been soldthese tickets with a top price of S3to the purchasers who asked for them first. To be sure, the fact that this is a popular priced show has had a great deal to do with kindling the demand for seats. But the reasonableness of the admission fee can't be given all the credit.

There have been numerous popular priced professional box. ing shows in Chicago where wide open spaces were more numerous than occupied seats. Show Ilas Real Value. The Chicago Stadium, world's lam- est indoor arena, will be packed to the rafters tonight principally be- cause of one factorthe fans have learned to appreciate the value of a Golden Gloves show. They aren't the most skillful boxers In either Chicago or New Yorkthese thirtytwo boys who wear miniature Golden Gloves on their watch chains.

7 They aren't versed in the tricks of the boxing racket. They don't know how to stall and fake. They aren't interested in purses, intent upon winning a wager. They are fighters. Thirtytwo kids and young men who fight because they like it, win because they don't know what it is to ease up.

lose only because the other fellow VMS stronger or luckier. There wasn't a boy in either the Chicago or New York camp last right who was nervous and afraid of what tonight might bring. They were impatient for the clock to tick away the hours that delay their appearance under the ring lights before that 22.000. Tonight Is Their Big Night. Until tonight they were nonentities.

For four rounds or less tonight the', will be Important figures. Before they were clockers In the steel mill, coal miners. taxi drivers. and office boys. Then they will be the best that.

The challenge was accepted and the first Inter-city tournament was held in the Coliseum. Eight bouts were won by New York; eight by Chicago. Last year THE THIBUNE7S cham-a pions were decisively licked in Madl-' son Square Garden.

Chicago has a chance tonight to square the standing. CHICAGO BOYS LIMBER UP IN FINAL DRILLS NEW YORK TERI SETS FAST PACE In FINAL DRILLS II Ai G. KEEPS TRACK TITLE; CONGER BEATEN -BY PAUL GALLIC. sports Editor, New York Daily News. driver from Chicago.

In justice to the fighters. to the other fans and yourself start early for the Golden Gloves Inter-city fights at the Stadium tonight. The reason is essentially thisno Indoor sporting event has drawn such a crowd as tonight's fights and it will take time to reach the Stadium, more time to park your car perhaps a bit longer to get the long files of fans through the doors and seated. For those who drive. the lesser used streets, probably won't have such a crush of traffic as Washington boulevard, Ashland avenue and -Warren avenue.

Western av en ea From the eortheast and eon thereatOlden In a country that is known the world over for its love of sport there are as a matter of fact only a vt-rY few real big events that may be called sport, and the Golden Gloves intercity match is one of them. Outside of a big football game, the open golf championship and the amateur, the Davis cup matches, the Kentucky Derby. the big boat races, and the meeting of the New York and Chicago Golden Gloves champions, the rest of our so-called sport is nothing but a series of pleasant and sometimes entertairdng business conferences.

Of course, it is the intercity series we are woing to discuss now. -4P. Ten thousand were turned away in New York last year. And a great many more will be disappointed here tonight Tnn TRIBUNE will establish a new world's record for attendance at an indoor sporting event with 22.000 present in the Chicago Stadium and about 30,000 more staying at home because they couldn't get tickets. Now.

over in White City Monday night, Jim Mullen showed Mickey Walker, middleweight champion of the world. The hall accommodated 4.000, but only 3.500 asked to be admitted. Of course, Walker was boxing a setup, but no matter, he is a world's champion professional fghter. He has had hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of publicity. And it didn't draw.

And It ite were to box Ace Hudkins, or any one, with the exception. possibly, of Dempsey. they wouldn't pack the crowd in the Stadium that will be there this evening.

The Chicago Golden Gloves amateur boxing team which will meet New York tonight at Chicago Stadium in a series of sixteen fights is ready for the bell. The boys went through a light workout yesterday at the C. A.

posed for pictures in their new uniforms, and then shadow boxed for three rounds. The show Will open at 8 o'clock. Sammy Levine, Chicago 112 pounder in the secondary division and Jimmy Hughes of New York will start the evening's bouts. Following this will come the opening battle in the first division when Chicago will send Johnny Emmerick of East St. Louis against Jimmy Sic lari of New York.

The latter was a member of the New York team last year, fought in the second division and defeated the Chicago entry In the first bout in Madison Square Carden. Kaplan Meets Donohue. From then on, two bouts in each class will be contested. with Sidney Kaplan of Chicago and Billy Donohue of New York. runners-up in the 118 pound class following.

Indleations are this will be one of the best fights on the card. Johnny Mauro of New York and Paul Leberto of Chicago will be th contestants in the final of the 118 pound class. Leherto is a stiff right hand puncher who can stand up under punishment Mauro can punch with either hand and this should be another battle. Then will come the three rounder between Joe Boman of Chicago and Jimmy Turco of New York, second place winners In the 126 pound division. And following, Chicago will depend upon Lenny Goldblatt to carry 1 The thing begins to catch you.

This, In other words, is sport. These fellows who are fighting are working men who put in hard hours at their labors. Some of them work in offices. Others come from packing houses, from mills, from mines, from the docks. Look at Sylvan Taylor, husky colored boy, who works as a roustabout on the New York piers.

Look at his opponentAndy Smith, butcher boy. Work, work, work, eight or nine or ten hours a day. The one hauls and tugs at sides of beeves. The other wrestles cases and barrels. In their spare time and for recreation they box.

They practice and they run on the road and they drill themselves. And tonight they will pit their skill and their ambition against one another for the love of their sport and incidentally the prizes, the excitement of boxing before so many witnesses, and I presume, too, the honor of their communities. And so the vast crowds that clamor to see this real sport must have confidence in the integrity of the business. Two of the greatest newspapers In the world are behind itTun CHI. CAGO TRIBUNE and the New York News.

To the best of our ability we guarantee the honesty of our boys. We trust one another. and we believe that the public trusts us. The News and THE TRIBUNE want only amateurs to box in these tourneys. 4 BY FRENCH LANE.

A brave. cocky band of New York boxers awaits the call to arms in the intercity battle at the Stadium tonight The New Yorkers final drill in the Medinah Athletic club gym Just as darkness was settling over Chicago last night offered the proof. New York's coaches put their chin masseurs through a strenuous drill which Included everything but boxing. When the coaches called a halt to the final rehearsal about 95 per cent of the New York boys were pleading for a few minutes more work. The coaches actually had to push Capt.

Jimmy Sic lari, Max Glickman. the New York heavyweight, and Artie Rodenback, the Gotham light heavyweight out of the gymnasium. Can Pass Back to Coaches. Maybe these boys didn't fancy a shower bath. New Yorkers who are roustabouts on the piers, necktie salesmen in the Bronx, truck drivers along the old Bowery.

or mechanics on Coogan's Bluff wouldn't naturally fancy a bath on such a March day in Chicago. But anyway the coaches insisted on a shower, and if pier workers, cab and truck drivers, and necktie salesmen contract a severe cold, whooping cough. or the measles between now and the time they are to crawl through the ropes they can pass the buck to the coaches. The line spirit the New York boys displayed at the end of their last strenuous rehearsal was heartening to the other New Yorkers here In charge of them. Al Copland.

who has been beating the bushes of metropolitan New York digging up the powerful maulers. was stalking the floor of the Medinah gym when the drill started. Under his arm he carried a copy of the book "Murder at Sea." The title was printed in large red letters. Maybe Al wanted his New 'York boys to read that title and get the murderous habit. Some of them probably did read It.

But not all the boys on the New York team. Thirty Boys in Action. To the Chicagoans. Including your correspondent who draped themselves around the balcony railing in Medinah gym as the final New York workout IrRID A Y. In.Campion itWemy.

Even with those alternate routes traffic is likely to be heavy and driving difficult, so start early. And this also applies to those who come by street car (Madison street cars run past the Stadium door) or elevated (there is an elevated station on Madison street, two blocks from the Stadium). While the public transportation lines will run extra cars, as usual, the large crowd may make such transportation slower than usual. If you drive your own car, don't try to get too close to the Stadium to park. There are public parking places on each end of the Stadium building and another across the street on Warren avenue.

but they cant hold more than a tenth of the cars, so most motorists will be forced to park on streets. And it's not unlikely cars will be lining the streets as far as four or Eve blocks from the Sta. dium. a.4. Continued on page 21 tolumn 21 Ccodrich Scores Technical K.

Watches to Winners in Stadium Bouts The unlucky fans who aren't even able to get one of the 1200 general admission for the Golden Gloves bouts tonight, which will be placed on sale at the Stadium at 5 o'clock this afternoon, won't be denied all participation in the Chicago-New -York fistic war. At least those who own a radio need not wait for tomorrows paper to learn how each of the boys fought.

and whether they won or lost. W-GN, THE TRIBUNE'S radio station will broadcast every bout, starting at 8 oclock and continuing until the final winner is announced. Thus before we left New York two of our men were dropped from the squad. one because we did not care to meet his demands and the other because we found that he had boxed for money upstate. Upon our arrival In Chicago we read that THE THIErVNE had dropped a boxer for similar reasons.

These were not substitutes either. They were stars. Both the News and THE Tniarsz sacrificed a victory over one another for the sake of amateurism, and what it means to the sport loving public. ISixteen winners tonight in the intercity tournament will receive handsome Hamilton watches- Losers in the six. teen bouts win receive wrist watches.
