Although the Tribune Athletic assoe1:0,, has not made any formal announcement of its plans to hold the tcurnament, the news of the plan, cir- cated through the athletic clubs, alresAly has resulted in scores of volunteers seeking an opportunity to prove -,,hr skill with the big glovesAthlftic Leaders to Help. , A committee, composed of many of de athletic kaders of Chicago . is to be $,:eoted to supervise the bouts, and the cf.cials of the Tribune Athletic association are preparing the final plans, which will be announced shortly. The Tribune Athletic association is rot contemplating violating any law, nor of holding prize fights in violation of the statutes of the state of Illinois. It intends to give the boys of Chicago Ed vicinity, who have been trained in the art of self defense and who have developed extraordinary skill and cleverness, the same opportunity of advancing that is granted to the students at the University of Illinois and other schools, and to the members of athletic clubs and the Y. M. C. A. It is not prepared to admit that the interpretation placed upon the Illinois law by some of the opponents of boxing is correct, or that the law ever contemp!ated preventing the physical development of the youth of the city.

The tournament will be conducted by the athletic association formed for the tysical Improvement of the employs tame elliCAGO TRIBUNS, and will be ander the sanction of the Amateur Athletic union. the governing amateur tni,etto body of America. Illne tournarnent will be one of the prelimitartes, such as will be conducted in many other cities as preliminary to the selwtion of the boxers who must represent the United States in the Olympic names in Paris in 1924. It does not believe that Chicago boys, and boys residing in the vicinity of Chicago, shall be barred from Olympic competition because of the opinions of the opponents cf boxing in any form, and their interpretation of the lawwhich-has been interpreted differently by the lawyers, judges, and by one jury. . Purely Amateur Boxing. The Tribune association intends pnrely amateur boxing, with large eoves, with limited number of rounds, and with the most careful medical attention and strenuous physical examination, of each boy who enters the Zeta The referees and judges will be men experienced in handling boxers, athletic directors, trainers and no bout of I punishing nature will be permitted, nor will a contestant, who is clearly overmatched by his opponent, be perrtlitsd to continue. , The whole idea of the amateur tour, rent is to place boxing on a higher plane, such ae the framers of the draa, tic and often misinterpreted Illinois law probably intended, and to enable the youth of Chicago to improve themselves physically with the minimum of danger.

DIANIOND fans throughout the: country welcome the return to baseball of Christy Mathewson, Onetime Giant pitcher. as president of the Boston Braves, bought by a F yr. dicate from George W. Crant, former- owner. Mathewson is one of the outstanding and romantic figures of baseball. A coVege baseball and football hero at Bucknell. he went into professional baseball and made good. Ile combined mechanical skill on the pitcher's mound with brain coördination. known in the parlance as " headwork." Long after his arm began to waver slightly his head carried him to consistent victories. Christy, with a winning personality, was a credit to the game. No breath of scandal ever touched him. He was an idol whose worship by youngsters interested in our national pastime we did not resent or regret. Then came Matty's game but apparently successful fight against tuberculosis. He carried to his campaign against the plague the same system and determination he had shown in the center of the infield. It was a batt;e against odds which he has won. The Wake knows Christy Mathewson is a distinct addition to the men at the head of major league ball clubs. We wish him success in his venture. - Ile Wore 'Eni, Too.

In a slashing ten round bout, during which there was not an idle moment, Joe Burman. Chicago, shaded Midget Smith of New York in the main event of the boxing show conducted,by the Harold Thylor post of the American Legion before a north side suburban club last night. They scaled 120 pounds at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The bouts were staged after Judge Ryner in Circuit court had granted an injunction restraining officials from interfering in any way. From the first tap of the bell these little warriors, who met for the fifth time, flew at each other like two banty roosters. Neither overlooked an opportunity to hit with either hand when they were in close quarters or at long range. In fact, there were few telling blows struck at long range, but damaging punches were landed when they were in close and each had one arm free. Trade Punch for ranch. In fact, Smith would take a punch to got in close to hammer Joie about the body and kidneys. This was his style of milling throughout, although he stuck a few straight lefts in Burman's face and swung an occasional right to Joe's head. Burman used a straight left hand to good advantage. He jabbed the eastern boy as many as three times without returns. and at times played a tattoo on Midget's body when they were in close. Joe tried hard to cross his right to Smith's jaw, but Midget generally managed to get out of barm's way, although Joe did connect a few times. Arldget Starts Strong. Smith had the advantage of the opening session, when he pounded Joe around the bldy in bang up style. The second session was about even, while Joe had the advantage in the third, when he used a straight left to advantage. Joe also had the better of the milling in the fourth, but Midget came back and took the fifth, when be socked Joe on the jaw with two solid right hand punches. The sixth was one of the best of the contest, with both mixing at a furious clip. Burman was entitled to a slight shade. Honors in the seventh, eighth. and ninth rounds were about even, while Joe had the best of the final seasion. In the opening round Burman lost his balance on the ropes and partly fell out of the ring. 1 Good Bout All the Way. Both boys left the ring with slightly damaged features. Joe's lips were cut and he bled a trifle from the nose. Smith's lips were also cut and his body red from the many punches landed by the western boy. It was one of the best bouts seen in and around Chicago in the last year. About 1,500 fans saw the show, which was conducted in orderly fashion. The Tom Gibbons-i-Tm 'rraeey beavyweiebt bout has been definitely set for East Chicago on March 5. Gibbons will be in Chicago next week to complete training, while Tracey ia expected about the Same tune. Joey Sangor. 122 potluil pride of Milwaukee, has been selected to meet Sammy Mandell of Roe Mord at Minneapolis on March 9. It will be Mandell's third straight bout in the Gopher city.

Previous to jelning Boston he hfOl been a member of Connie Macks famous Philaielphia. For a time it appeared as though the Braves would decline to waive claim to McInnis. It is understood that the National league club has made McInnis an offer, but that the veteran has not accepted. With the release of McInnis, the Indians have Prank Brower, recently acquired from Washington, and Louis Guist available for the initial sack. There also is a chance that Manager Speaker may give Glenn Myatt, for whom the Indians are said to have paid Milwaukee $50,e00, a trial at first.
