"With the building taxed to capacity aid at least 4,000 clamoring for admission and begging standing room, boxers representing the Arcade gym-rasium, owned by Howard Carr, won team honors in the Chicago Amateur Boxing championships which came to a close at the Ashland Boulevard auditorium last night. Howard's boxers, who scored in six of the eierht classes riled up 34 points. Ferretti's gymnasium was second with 8 points, and unattached experts garnered 7 points. The six day tourney was conducted by The Tribcxb A. A. According to old timers, including George Kerwin. Harry Forbes, and others who had seen amateur boxing tourneys in the old days, when the sport was sanctioned in the state, The TRiBt'NB A. A. tourney was the greatest ever held in the city and one ol the most successful ever conducted in the country. Tickets Sold Early. i Not only did the Fports loving pub-1:3 appreciate the honest efforts of the boxers, but they assisted in contributing: money to a worthy cause. All net proceeds of the six day show will go to wounded vets of the "World srar, and as near as can be figured. about $6,000 will be turned over to this fund. All day yesterday and as late as 9 o'clock at night requests were made for tickets. Every seat had been sold rt 5:30 o'clock last evening and at 8 o'c!ock 400 general admission tickets : t SO cents each w-ere placed on sale. These were quickly gobbled up and Mill it appeared &a many clamored :or admission as were inside the auditorium. - The-crowd, although large, was or-oerly. There was not the booing of judges and referees which featured the previous night, decisions were taken graciously and the best boxers won. x.iKe previous Rights, tne fans were liberal with their applause and appreciated the efforts of the losers as much pa the winners. There were numbers cf women present and no smoking was permitted and few uncomplimentary remarks heard at any time. No Dull Moments. The show started promptly at 7:30 o'clock with semi-final round bouts in the 112 pound, or flyweight division. Worn this hour until 11 o'clock the boxers kept moving into the ring with clock'Jke precision until the final winner was determined and the handsome trophy, emblematic of the Chicago amateur team championship, presented to Howard Carr, known in boxing circles as Kid Howard. f Following the semi-final rounds, win' ners came together for the championships in the eight classes. Owing to the desire of Kdgar Miller of Notre Dame to catch a train, final of the heavyweight contest was staged first. Frank King, hard hitting protege of Kid Howard of the Arcade gym, shot s. right cross to Miller's jaw near the end of the first round and the bout came to a sudden end, as Miller was unable to continue. Southpaw Boxer Wins. Following the bout between the big fellows, Dax.ny McGowan of the University of Notre Dame, and Morris Angel of the Milwaukee A. C. stepped into the ring to determine the championship of the flyweight class. Angel assumed the boxing pose of a southpaw by leading with his right. He repeatedly hooked or uppercutted with his left to Danny's body and face. He forced the fighting throughout and the judges lost no time to give him the decision. After the decision had been rendered. Angel rushed to his opponent's corner and kissed him. Charles Wood of tne Arcade gymnasium won the 11S pound or bantamweight title after an interesting bout with John Hill, also of the Arc AlO AND DOME f f. kAKi'c r - r 7- FRIENDS ARC Hl, BOOKS' TMLV APC NEVER roi r ok? pai 1 .

Siki was completely turned around and all out of position when this picture was snapped. McTigue bad slipped behind the ebony battler and proceeded to apply some rough work to Siki's head, at the same time holding his adversary helpless. This was snapped in one of the closing rounds when McTigue was desperately attempting to stop the fast tiring Siki. TRIBUNE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION THANKS YOU, GENTLEMEN! 0' FIT CI A I -S of The Tribune Athletic association most cordially and sincerely thank each and every individual who assisted in making the amateur boxing tournament which came to such a happy conclusion last night the most successful in history. The men controlling the drawing of the boxers were on the job from early evening until the last bell rang, officials of the Ashland Boulevard auditorium were unselfish in their efforts to have everything in shipshape order for the contestants and spectators, the Chicago chapter of the National Sports alliance had men on the job where experience in the boxing game was needed in fact, there wasn't a selfish bone in the body of any man in any way connected with the tournament. The Tribune A. A. thanks yon, gentlemen, one and all. clever use of a straight left hand and right crosses which generally lanaea on their intended marks.

Managers of the boxers have agreed to- weigh 12-1 pounds at 3 o'clock on the afternoon. RICKEY JOB HOPELESS IF HIS VETERANS SLIP . BY HUGH FULLERTON. ARTICLE XII. Eradentown, Fla., March 28. Branch Rickey faces one of the toughest problems of baseball to form a team for this year and for 1928 at the same time. ;He is in the position in which every manager finds himself sooner or later; with five veterans who have been the standbys of his team liable to crash at any minutefi and a bunch of youngsters preparing to supplant them. If Bill Doak, Toney and Pfeffer, pitchers. Stock and La van, on the ln-1eld, hold up, the Cards have a big Rghting chance to be in the penuant race all the way. If -they slip then the chances of hanging in the first division are bad. But there i3' one thing certain; that the Cardinals will be leading or near the lead of the pennant race six weeks after the start for the simple ; reason t hat it would be the best - prepared and best conditioned ball club in either league. ; Rickey Ahead of Ills Time. Rickey has been scoffed at and ridiculed. He is fifteen years ahead of the time in ideas of preparing ball clubs. Rickey trains and prepares a team scientifically, but until he can find a ball ciub, or a bunch of players really smart enough to grasp his ideas his success is doubtful. The Cards will lineup with Bottom-ley at first. Big Jim Is only 22, a coal miner, a hitting demon, and he has made good already. Hornsby, of course. Is the second baseman. He is a trifle light this spring, and hitting harder than ever. He made five home run3 In three exhibition games. Rickey brought down fourteen shortstops for trial and probably will start with Doc Lavan in the position. However, there is small chance that Lavan will hold the Job Steadily as Roscoe Holm, the University of Iowa lad, looks like a find. Milt Stock May Slip. Milton Stock may slip in which case Blades will get the third base position , Btades is a peppery, promising youngster, who played infield and outfield for Memphis and hit well, played short for Houston and for the Cards. He is a real ball player and hit over .300 in the National and has more pep than most youngsters, is ambitious and trying. Torporcer, who got himself ' married last fall, and Mc-Dermott will be the sufcs. McDermott was a catcher in Nebraska, but Rickey made him a first baseman, and he looks good. The death of McHenry hurt the outfield, but Rickey grabbed Hy Myers, who promises to be better than he ever was at ' Brooklyn. He is satisfied with the Cards and filled with hustle. Jack Smith and Max Flack will have the other jobs, although Flack is another of those who may slip back. The catching staff Is Ainsmith, a queer character, and a great catcher, who has convinced himself that he is in for anothter big year. .Clemons looks better than in two years and this McCurdy Is a coming star. Toney Is Happy. "Which brings the real problem, can Doak and Toney go through a year THIS PASTOR TO SHARE HIS SUNDAYS BETWEEN PULPIT AND DIAMOND CUBS.

Gapczynski, pastor of the Sacred Heart church in this city, has organized a semi-professional baseball team to play on Sunday afternoons. He will manage the nine. without wabbling? Toney has learned his lesson and is In earnest. Doak is slow rounding to shape and has worked carefully to conserve his strength for the season. Haines looks good and Sherdel ought to have a big year. The big promise of additional strength is in Lester Sell, from Syracuse, a right hander who was with the team at the finish last fall. Wiginton and Knight, right handers, were also with the Cards at the close of last season. I expect a great deal from Johnny Stuart, who starred for Ohio State. - There is one boy worth watching whether this year or next. If Rickey's veterans Cop and he has to fall back on the youngsters, watch Eddie Dyer, a left handed pitcher from Rice university, who is one of the fastest men in baseball, a great hitter, and ' a very fair pitcher. He probably will drop pitching and get to the outfield, whero he wonld develop into a big star. He can field, throw, run, and hit and why pitch when you can do that?

GARDINI HOPES TO PIN LEWIS WITH SCISSORS Renato Gardini, who will lock holds with Ed Lewis, title holder, for the world's heavyweight championship at the Coliseum next Tuesday night, will base his hopes for victory on youth, strength and his favorite short .i-m scissors grip. The Italian, while naturally a short-ender, ignores the fear of Lewis headlock. v Followers of the .Italian .believe a defensive battle would be disastrous with Lewis, 6lowly but surely wearing him down. Gardini has been working like a Trojan to grasp the opportunity, and he will not fall because of lack of condition. Lou Talabar intends to tise his match with Yousiff Husaane tomorrow night st the Star and Garter as a test of his eligibility to play jwith the bi? fellows. The Turk has agreed to pin him in two straight falls before the midnight hour, but Lou considers hia speed and trickiness will enable him to evade defeat easily ' tCallaghaa batted far Cherres In sixth.

Ray Grimes forget how muny men were out in, the .. trurd inning today and by so do ing jobbed t!u Cubs out of a bull game. The contest should have ended in nine chapters, but" it went eleven, and Frisco won, 11 to 10. The break came in the third, when Grantham and Grimes singled. Miller whacked, a two-bagger to deep center after two were out and Grimes held his base until he saw the ball fall safe. He tied up on third when he might have scored with ease. That lapse forced the game into overtime. The contest broke up in the eleventh wrhen Ellison poled a home run into the center field bleachers. It was a high fly that might have been caught on a regulation field. Cheeves pitched five innings and allowed nine hits and six runs, including a homer over' the high right field screen by Pete Compton. ' Kaufman yielded four hits and as many runs in the sixth but was steady in the seventh. , Vic Keen went the last four and was effective up to the blowoff. Keen 13 recovering from a sore" arm which beset him at Catalina Island. He seems to be O. K. again. The game was a sloppy affair, with the Cubs making eighteen hits and i their enemies the same number. Adams had an off day, making two wide throws both of whicb resulted in runs. The noticeable feature from a Cub standpoint was the hitting of Grantham, the rookie second base man, lie drove out three singles and a double. He was late getting started. but is batting well. Hartnett contrib uted a home run into the bleachers. NEW ORLEANS, 1., Mfirtti 28. Special. The Van-Kf-n may lack everI things but one of them -A not confidence.
