Oak Park majors, with a decided weight advantage. fought a bruising battle and time after time sent their lighter rivals spinrdng and sprawling. Occasionally Morton was forced to call " time," but the original quintet was still In and going strong at the finish. The teams battled to a. 7 to 7 deadlock at the first quarter, but the home squad speeded up and led 15 to 8 at the half. Trailing by ten points Into the final stretch, Oak Park hurled everything Into a last desperate rally that Just fell short. Morton showed a faster. smoother attack. and its crack coterie of basket shooters capitalized the , many short shots near the goal. HEAVY TITLE TO MORTON; LIGHT TO OAK PARK Drechsler, Gordon Star. Oak Park was kept in the running only through the spectacular shooting of Drechsler and Gordon. No soft chances presented themselves. but these lads. by remarkable work, broke through for five and four field goals, respectively. The invading lightweights gathered their league championship on a performance of eleven straight victories. They showed pne of the prettiest pony quintets in local prep circles for a long time. Excellent shots, and with a velvety offense, the little Orange and Blue team clinched last night's game in the early stages, leading, 11 to 4, at the half.

WHAT are the real prospects for a revival of high class racing in Illinois? That question is frequently asked The Wake on the assumption we may have some " inside dope " on the situation. We have not. Our Opinion is that immediate revival of the sport on a pretentious scale is dependent On passage of a bill legalizing supervised 9 speculation. Without a protective law we may still reestablish racing, but the upbuilding process will be slower. There are two ways of securing a law. One is for agitation and demonstration of an Overwhelming public sentiment in favor of the sport with assurance that back of racing will stand responsible sponsors. The other way, say those more experienced than we in such matters, is for an emissary to take pencil and paper and write down before a stakeholder some imposing f gurea with the dollar sign in front of them Several of the men interested in the projected country dub with polo and other society adjuncts have told The Wake distinctly that they do not favor " buying" legislation, that it is not the right way to start They will not proceed without a law. So much for that. The Riverdale backers, wita Judge Joseph A. Murphy as adviser, think they have a system of oral betting which is not illegal under present laws. They are willing to build a track and undertake racing. Until test cases have reached the Supreme court their status will be more or less uncertain. They may conduct high class racing, if officials do not harass them, but they cannot build for the future until opinion of their attorneys Is sustained by a court of record. Hawthorne is advertising a. spring meeting. Hawthorne's meeting of last fall proved Chicago wants racing. To determine that question was its announced purpose. It served that purpose. Horsemen were paid in full, although there are rumors some other obligations are still outstanding. Hawthorne alone, in our opinion. will not bring back the old days of turf sport. Recapitulating. we think race meetings will be attempted in Chicago this season. We think a state law or a Supreme court decision holding some form of oral wagering not unlawful to be necessary before Chicago has the class of racing to which it is entitled.

If you have $500 in the savings bank on which you draw $15 annual interest and schedule your savings as personal property, which, of course, you should do, your personal property tax in Evanston Evanston's rate is lower than most north shore suburbs will be $23.35. In other words, your tax is higher than possible income from so-called conservative investment.

The game was nip and tuck all the way, but when Gibson was ruled from the game, due to four personal fouls, Purdue scored enough to pass the Badgers, and remained ahead until Tebell's timely rally. Both teams played bang-up basketball throughout, although Wisconsin was off a bit on shooting, missing most of their shots. Spooner and Williams were big factors in defeating the Boilermakers, but Tebell's timely shots made him the outstanding star for the Badgers. Gullion and Holwerda both played star roles for the visitors. the latter sinking seven free throws out of eight chances. Lineup: PURDUE 191. WISCONSIN 1201.

The Maroons showed v.-inning fight at the beginning and end of the battle.- and it was in these belligerent spurts, led by brilliant passing and floor work that they anchored their triumphs. The Maroons took an early 3 point lead, then their attack slackened and the flint forged ahead. ending the first half with the advantage 8. The first part of the second stanza indicated that Coach Ruby's men would swamp Norgren's five, but starting with Capt.

Fleming, mcmager Of the No-Lionel Reform association, one Of the bodies fighting the proposed amateur boxing tournament to be staged under the auspices of the Tribune Athletic associatiowi . in which he states that "I insist we (reformers) on the other side have the courteous treatment of not being constantly misrepresented and held up to ridicule," The Tribune pro., tents herewith a word for word stale-meld issued by Fleming. The Tribune Athletic association refuses to strike a foul blow. "This letter Is written becattee of the inceiarant misrepresentation by TRII TRIBVNII on both editorial and sporting pages of the attitude of the Protestant church people on prize fights and boxing exhibitions. And this writer makes bold to speak because for year he has been a leader in the fight on the side of the churches. "We oppose prize fights because they are a relic of barbarism, barbarizing in their tendency, illegal In probably every state In the union, outlawed by every sense of IsIcency of the American people, a prize fight, as per dio. tionaries and courts, being a pugilistic encounter for a prhe or wager.' -0- We oppose legalizing socalled boxing exhibitions under commission control as per the bills for the last eight years before the legislature partly because these seek to legalize not boxing exhibitions but highly commercialized prize lights and squeeze the life out of real boxing, and partly because the whole history of efforts covering more than twenty-five years for regulation of these exhibitions in New York, the only state with Illinois conditions where it has been thoroughly tried. with three different commission lAWS, has resulted in complete failure. Suppose THIS TRIBUNIO publish the facts. "We have opposed the prize fights, so-called boxing exhibitions, on the 1.1. S. S. Commodore, because they contribute to the breakdown of law in Chicago and are largely responsible for the present flouting of the law against prize tights and boxing exhibitions in this city. We oppose any continuance of these exhibitions, paid or free, professional or amateur, for the same reasons. We oppose the proposed amateur boxing exhibition Tits: TstinrNa is now seeking to stage in the Coliseum no place has yet been chosenEditorl because in our Judgment it is a plain violation of section 3,884 of the CernIna. code of Illinois as follows: 'Who. ever instigates, carries on, promotes, or engages in as a witness, any sparring or boxing exhibition, shall be fined not exceeding WO or eonfined in the county )all not exceeding six months.' " We are not on record as opposing per se amateur boxing exhibitions of the sort Tim Tnreuns is seeking to stage in the Coliseum. On the contrary, four years ago. I personally, as representative of the church people, caused to be introduced and battled for four months to get through the legislature a bill seeking to legalize exactly what TEM TRIBUN14 is now trying to put on, but THAI TRIBUNIZ called it a " pink tea bill," tried to laugh it out of court, and helped to kill it Tirsi Taters;g now wants what It then opposed. - S "De do not oppose boxing all a healthful exercise. Many, perhaps most of us believe in it, and some of us can handle the gloves. But boxing as an exercise and highly commercialized prize fights, or even amateur boxing exhibitions are two different things, with no essential connection. " We did not and do not oppose boxing in the army or navy. not even on tte Commodore, with the exhibition feature cut out, as a means of developing fighting men, but we Insist that there is no close connection between developing men into fighters for war and into citizens for the arts of peace" Personally, I feel that the present law forbidding sparring or boxing exhibitions is too strict, but at this time I would not be willing to help loosen it up, except possibly In eolleges and Y. M. C. A-8 and recognized clubs among bona fide members thereof, for the simple reason that the fighting fraternity would tear it to shreds over night." WHAT DO YOU THINK? In the coming mammoth amateur boxing tournament to be conducted by The Chicago Tribune Athletic association, under the sanction of the A. A.

UNE, accompanied it with a personal letter to me, charging that Its fight I s unfair, although admitting the right of The Tribune assoriation to defend itself against charges of lawlessnera. lie rays: " If Tne TrUBUNII believes It Is right. as I have no doubt, let it put up a, sportsman's battle, and not deal In fouls, where there Is no referee to call It." .. Tribune A. A. Fights Fair. The Tribune Athletic association Is not fighting foul. It contends that no law, and no body of lawmakers, contemplated depriving the boys of Illinois of the right to engage in an art and science which the United States government declared necessary as a i part of preparing for war. I It does not believe that a ,tat. which during the war forced its boy, I to box, or a. city which persuades 'boxer to box In trucks on 3treet cornets, aad any thought that they were ;committing a crime. 1 If the reformers will flght as fairly as the rules of boxing compel two boys to do; not hit below the belt, or in clinches. and not try to win a decision by foul means, it will be a nice little battle. And there Is a referee. Mr. Fleming': 1 The referee is the people of Chicago. . and the bout is to a decision. MORTIMER COPS RACQUETS TITLE New York. Feb. 24.Clarence C.
