ON the eleventh floor of the county building tonight at 8 o'clock there will be a meeting of 110 American Legion post commanders to discos ways and means for the aid af the world war's disabled American soldiers.

BY WALTER ECKERSALL. Assured support by every athletic organization composed of red blooded members in and near Chicago, The Tribune Athletic association will conduct its first amateur boxinK tourney at the i Ashland Boulevard . auditorium on the evenings of March 21, 22, and 23. The auditorium has a seating capacity of about 3.500. With the selection of the hall and dates, one of the worst oosta- cles in staging the tourney has been overcome. Til's Tribune A. A. wanted to secure a more centrally located auditorium but no dates were available. However, the west sido auditorium is known for its athletic events and can be easily reached from all sections of the city. Boxers Must Follow Rules. Following the selection of dates, an entry blank, appears on the sports pages of The Tri31ke. Those desiring to enter are requested to clip the blank and mail it as directed. Strict amateur rules will be enforced and all boxers must be members of the A. A. IT. and submit to rigid examinations before they are permitted to go on. No entry fee is necessary. The only stipulation is that boxers join the A. A. U. and they also must be at weight. Amateur rules state boxers must weigh the stipulated poundage or less to compete in the various classes. This applies to a fraction of a pound. Boxing rules of trie A: A. IT. will goverti all contests. Each round will be of three minutes' duration, with a minute's rest between. Three rounds constitute a bout unless the judges and referee fail to agree upon a victor. In 6ueh an event an extra round will be ordered. In the preliminary bouts eight ounce gloves will be used, but flye ounce may be used in the finals. No Counts in Amateur Bouts, In no event will the referee be permitted to count over a boxer knocked down. If any contestant is knocked down, the round will terminate immediately. The referee then will discern whether the boxer can continue. If he is hurt, the bout will not continue and the decision given the opponent. Each contest will be in charge of two judges and the referee. At the termination of the third round the judges will make their choice known to the announcer. If they fail to agree, then the referee will be asked to determine the winner. If the arbiter is in doubt, they will go an extra round. Experienced boxing men will be Invited to act as judges and referees. Every eJTort will be made to keep the amateur apart from the professional. As there is a vast difference between the two styles of boxing, those who have Judged amateur contests in the past will be chosen. Seconds Know Their Business. However, professional seconds may be secured to handle t he boxers in the corners. These seconds will be equipped with the many first aid remedies used in professional contests. The time of starting the tourney on each night will depend largely upon the entry list. Scales will be installed in the dressing rooms at the auditorium and weighing and drawing clerks will he on hand to see that each boxer is placed in the proper class and given an 1 even break in the draw. The ring will be of the required dimensions and will be sufficiently padded to guard against accidents. The posts also will be padded and three ropes will he stretched on each side. A new canvas covering will be laid over the floor padding and other precautions taken for safeguard. A committee composed of three Prominent physicians will be chosen to examine the boxers before they take iart. In order to eliminate last min-disappointments, those having weak hearts or any other ailments are guested not to enter. Medals f,r the Winners. The regulation Tribune medals will given to the winners of the first taree places in each class. First place wi'l be rewarded with a solid gold odal, second place with solid silver, ar-d third with a bronze.

AMATEUR BOXING FOX POP Comment on the proposed boxing tournament to be staged by the Tribune Athletic association is presented herewith. BRAD SMITH. Chicago As a rule, I am strongly in favor of Arthur Burrage Farwell and the work of the Law and Order league. I read with exceeding regret of his opposition to the amateur boxing tournament to be conducted by The Tribune A. A. under the sanction of the A. A. IT. Boxing, as conducted by the A. A. IT., is a fine, clean form of athletics and tends to lend a powerful influence on the morale of the young men of the community. The money donated Mr. Far-well has been given by the various congregations and organizations for the suppression of the elements of evil and vice, most prevalent at the present time. I personally think that Mr. Farwell is misusing money given him in good spirit in opposing amateur boxing, and I also feel confident that the majority of his contributors will aree with me. E F. M'GINNIS, commander Mid Nation post No. 309, American cleaner manhood, thereby making a greater America for Americans. We take pleasure in offering to your paper our hearty approval of the methods used at the present time with regard to boxing and our sincere appreciation of your editorials on the sport. E" LMER T. GOOD, Kenmore and Wilson avenue I believe there are 1,000 or more clean cut sons of good citizens, taxpayers in Chicago, who love boxing and who will benefit by your program of boxing. " Chicago " and " The Chicago Tribune " are, in my opinion, two big powers in America. In these modern days " something new " can be expected in every field of endeavor. The most modern churches in our big cities have instituted " church houses " in connection with their church building for the housing of gymnasiums, shower baths, etc. Boxing is a common practice and it warms the young church fellow to his spiritual ties in a modern manner. I'm a deacon. I'm Legion It is not the intention I for the tournament and I'll be In at- U. S. S. COMMODORE Officers of the United States naval reserve force on inactive duty in Chl- th Miii-Xation nost to belit tie or attempt to circumvent the present state laws rather do we desire to uphold them In every phase. When it is apparent, however, that individuals, or a small group of individuals, are banded together for the purpose of dictating to the majority of the people without considering the fact that that majority of people are as law abiding and peace loving as these self-appointed " moral guardians," it brings us to the point of asking whether or not the present generation is to be held in the light of an irresponsible people or is to be permitted to live within a guarantee laid down by the United States constitution. Boxing was taught and encouraged in every branch of the United State service during the war. . . . We have been constantly exhorted to keep in the same physical condition in civilian life. . . . We believe that boxing such as sponsored by The Chicago Tribune would be a step forward in bringing back to the people not only what they desire but also would serve to induce a tendance if I'm alive. J TOSEPH BERMAN, director of activities, American Boys' Com monwealth, 1219 South Kedzie avenue The American Boys' Commonwealth is heartily In accord with your determination to stage a tournament in the manly art. Our legislators framed that law when boxing was prize fighting. They should be here. now. On Wednesday evenings bur boxera train and do a lot of sparring. Will Arthur Burrage Farwell send police over to stop us? Tours for the success of the tournament. D' R. CASSIUS C. ROGERS, 25 East Washington street I am in favor of any sport that is clean and will develop body and mind. I can see naught but good in boxing if it is under proper management. I hope you put on your mammoth amateur boxing tournament. It will be popular if you keep graft and politics out of it. iBibuneDecisions Decisions of The Tribune boxing representatives are: At Harrisburs, Fa. Joe Lynch Item Fnte Hnata 8.

The officers have contributed from their private funds the money necessary to bring in boxers from Great Lakes and Fort Sheridan and to decorate the ship for the bouts, which will be followed by a radio dance. Ensign Thomas J. Keane, detailed by Capt. E.

Final arrangements for the affair, the first of a series of similiar exhibitions planned by the naval reserve force, will be completed with the return Friday of Capt. Evers, Mr. Keane will sign up the fighters today.

TITLE MAT MEET New York, Feb. 27. Special. The spectacle of these spectators at an amateur wrestling tournament serving as judges in selecting the winner was provided in the continuation of the Amateur Athletic union's national senior wrestling championships. The odd incident arose in a second trial bout of the 160 pound wrestling class, in which the principals were E. Coxe of Lehigh university and A. Wilhelm-sen of the East Side Y. M. C. A. The Judges could not agree upon a winner, so Secretary Frederick W. Rubien of the A. A. U. was called in to settle the matter. He went among the spectators and enlisted judges. All three voted in favor of Coxe. sThe second trials in the 118 pound class witnessed the passing of a national wrestling champion when Valentine Vosen of Illinois A. C, who came from Chicago to defend his bantamweight title, was eliminated by L. J. Servais, N. Y. A. C wrestler, by judges' decision after ten minutes. Tom Kirby, Boston light heavyweight, occupied the limelight in the boxing ring. The Hub boxer added another heavyweight to his list of vanquished rivals when he gained the decision over E. G.

Woods and. "Waters BECKER A ' J w A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND THEN TROUT FISHING. ELL, we're getting on the home stretch approaching the trout season now. Just a couple of months and then watch the gang snap into action with garden hackle and sweet looking flies. May 1 is when the gong will ring. It seems as if we are not the only one thinking about this trout business. Had a letter the other day from an old pal in California with whom I fished some beautiful little streams in Oregon one summer while living in a cozy log cabin at about 6,500 feet Up in the mountains. He wrote me that he was working on the rods and otherwise getting ready for some classy fun. And here is what C. A. M. writes along this line: " Seems like the only big game on earth is the game of the outdoors in the big woods and along the streams we love, only no one seems to know it only us. Trout is soon coming up. Better use worms first, then minnows, then flies. Get a basket half full of the beauties, cook them at the stream side, serve with black coffee, then light the old pipe and lie down In the nice warm sun. Hot dog! Ifa the life." That's just about enough from you. C. A. M. How do you expect a guy to get any work done between now and May 1 if he carries around such Ideas in his head? B ERNIE F RIB ERG. TRIBUNE Photo. 1 HAMMER DRAWS $1,000 FINE FROM DETROIT BOARD Detroit, Mich,, Feb. 27. A fine of $1,000 today was imposed on Ever Hammer by Charles P.

All titles held by either man at the time of the fight are to be at stake. THOROUGH TRIAL FOR FRIBERG AT 3D BASE BY IRVING VAUGHAN. Avalon, Catalina Island, Cal., Feb. 27. Although spring training for the Cubs is still in its infancy, Manager Killefer has made up his mind on one point. He intends to go the limit with Barney Friberg as a third baseman and this means the former outfielder will be tutored on the finer points of in-fielding right up to the start of the season, if necessary. Killefer came out here with the knowledge that his biggest prob lem would be the infield, where only two positions will be looked after by last season's occupants. Friberg was elected to fill one of the vacancies and in the few days of practice already held he has shown enough to warrant the belief that he will do despite his inexperience. In practice here Friberg has been tried out on every conceivable kind of batted ball and the result has been startling. Natural baseball ability explains that. There is his batting strength to consider, however, and on this feature tht boy manager is not at all certain. One remedy planned for this is to have Barney bat right handed exclusively instead of changing around to meet the opposition pitchers. There is a possibility that Killefer's Infield worry may be relieved by the return of Zeb Terry. The latter recent ly announced his retirement from baseball in favor of the real estate business, but may be induced to come back until the Cubs will be able to get alpng without him. If Grantham comes through at the second base position everything will be rosy, but should the Omaha rookie fail Terry will be in great need. Word came from Chicago this noon that Mrs. Killefer was seriously ill, so the manager immediately turned over the reins to Coach Dugey and started for home. The young pilot will reach Chicago Friday night.
