pitmimg feititttj rftate SPORTS THEATRES WINNIPEG, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1930 Present Day American Boxing Gang Ridden Racket Gunmen Gain Fortunes As Fans Are Gyped in Fixed Ring Contests New York Writer Bares Widespread "Outside" Control of Boxing By MILTON MACKAYE This It the first of a series of articles revealing gangdom's grip on professional boxing in United States, and disclosing the part played by crooked politicians, gunmen, bootleggers ahd vicious forces generally in the control of pugilism and the men in the ring. NEW YORK. Oct. 11 Gangdom dominates boxing. The racketeers, tha beer runners, the alcohol cookers, the thugs and grafters and gorillas have marched in on the citadel of port and raised the black flag.

Fair play has been taken for a ride a.nd decency put on the spot. Ten years New York state fcasaed the Walker law which, after years of Intermittent outlawry, ele vated boxir.g to the plane of respectability and to the proportions of a gilt edged trade. New York state wanted boxing to come into its own. Boxing did, with New York city as Its centre. The Walker law was, and no one can deny it, a great break for the tight professional.

It pulled the sport up out of the gut ters and side a'ley clubs and set it down at table with the dinner jackets. It made heroes out of boys who ate with th1r knives and mil lionaires out of bums. It led the way to a lirensed and controlled game, and other states followed Fortunes for Gunmen Whst has been the result? Well, for one thing, it has made fortunes and easy pickings for gunmen and desperadoes gentlemen hatched into managers out of careers in crime. And. for a eecond thing, it has presented to the public an odor ous scries of fixed fights, of victories bv fnul and triumphs by chicanery There have bren events of odd and susoiclous character.

Ten years after, and that is the panoramic view. Ther are honest fighters, of course, honest managers and promoters. There are honest fights. But the tlpiff. as the police reporters say.

is this promoters lead thilr ballyhoo these days with the promise that whatever may have happened in previous matches, this match Is on the square. The Inference Is obvious, and the facts are these: The sinister institution of gangdom has. like a repulsive tropical plant, flowrred up through the profession until Its tendrils reach out to strangle the sport. The rhetoric is melodramatic, but bo are the facts. Big Gates Responsible Money, of course, is responsible.

The big time racketeers did not Vrlfle with boxes when purses were small. They limited themselves to liquor and dope and unmodified murder. But when boxing, legalized, blossomed Into a gold piece tree, they muscled their way in with their little hatchets as they muscle their way Into everything else. It Is part of the national picture Ttacketeerine has corrupted courts and the racketeers are foreine theii way into almost every line of business. And now they have entered sport.

In the belief that the public shoull know what Is going on. It is planned to present in a series of articles, of which this is the first, a frank picture of the present situation. It will not a pleasant picture, hut It will he. above all things, a true one. The purpose of this series Is not to sink boxing, but boxing, throvigh its exploiters.

Is sinking itself. Unless friends of the sport can Join themselves Into committees of rescue, unless the gangsters, the gunmen, th can be kicked hack Into their own gutltrs. there can be only one result the boxing laws In num erous states will be repealed. N.Y. Law Twice Repealed New York state, and that state Is made an example as so much of the boxing scandal arises In New York City, has tried boxing three times.

The gamblers and fakers took it ovei 30 years ago and the Horton law was repealed. Once more the criminals splashed Into the picture and the Frawlev law was repealed. TJis third time his beeji no charm. The criminal has alwavs been In evidence, hut there has been a de finite change. Petty thievery hai given way to big time stuff.

The same forces that are bchln1 bootlegging are now behind crookod boxing. The tie up with the underworld is drlnita nnd unmistakable. The msn who buys a drink and tin. "man who buys a ticket to a fight are often pouring their money Into the same capacious pockets. Bootleggers, dope peddlers, poultrv racketeers, control some of the most Important boxers In the business At least three famous fighters are owned by men who have been or should be behind bars.

A number of near champions are vassals of the overlords of crime. And all of these are pictured in the more unreliable rrints as exponents of the "manly rcnnt'nuw) on nee Twenty Onel Iowa Law Prof.s Daughter Seen as Future Golf Star I CAVA CTTY, Helen Perkins tournament, tea women's 11. year old professor at Miss Terkins of the season strokes from local links.

Young Toronto Catcher Goes to Majors With World Champs EDDIE PHILLIPS PIRATE TEAM TO BE SHIFTED Philadelphia Likely to Get Major League Franchise This Winter Affair of the Pittsburgh Hockey club of the National Hockey league are very much up in the air at present, and in the opinion of Frank Frtderickson, the team manager, who recently returned from a trip to New York, the franchise will be shifted to Phlla delphla this wesson, giving that city major league hockey although at present it is a member of a minor circuit.

Last week end the club directors were in Chicago, trying to dispose of their interests to Tom Shaug nessy, who is backing the Chicago Shamrorks In the American assocla tlon with the view of having second major league team operating in tne winuy city. Previous to this. Cleveland and Philadelphia interests made offers for the franchise, but neither was high enough for the present own ers. They took under consideration a plan to remain in Pittsburgh nut speedilv droppid it. when it be came known there would be no cf fort made this winter to Improve me ruiK accommodations.

The pnaent structure. Duqnesn Gardens, is an old building, which is not euitahle for prescnt dsy hockey, even though the game hHs been played there for a number of years. In the meantime, Frederickson has signed on some new talent, but as his arrangements are being held UP until the Pittsburgh owners decide what is to be done, he cannot go ahead with his training plana. WILL REFILE HOCKEY SUIT Mistrial Declared Again in Chicago Affair CHICAGO, Ills, Oc. 11.

For the second time in as many weeks, the $700,000 damage suit of Edward J. Livingstone, of Toronto, against Major Frederick MeLaugh lln. owner of the Chicago Black Hawk hoekey team, was declared a mistrial Friday. Attorney Cecil C. Krickson.

counsel for the plnintlff, made today's motion for a non suit, because of the "fragmentary manner In which the evidence was allowed to go in." After the motion was granted, he said, he would refile the suit. Livingstone seeks damages on the charge that Major McLaughlin conspired to lure away players from his Cardinal hockey team and also to cause cancellation of the Cardinal tram's lease of the Chicagoolisenm for exhibition purposes. The first trial was declared a mistrial last week when Major McLaughlin told Judge George A. Carpenter that juror harl approached him with improper remarks. Oct.

London Bureau Copyright by loultasm Publishing Ltd.) LONDON, Oct. 11 Extraordinary reversals In soccer form continue. A comparison between league tables at the end of last season and as they now stand Is full of surprises. Man chester City, then third from the top, is now fourth from the bottom, Sunderland, ninth at the end of last season, is now second from the foot, On the other hand.

Arsenal has jumped from fourteenth place to mat, and judging by its exploits this week, when it won football associa tion charity shield by defeating Sheffield Wednesday, two goals to one. Intends to remain there, New castle United, from being fourth from bottom, has moved to seventh at top. In the Second division, Preston Have leaped upward, while Bradford has taken the escalator downward and In the Third division, Torquay United have suddenly shown that they, too, can climb. Similar re markable changes are to be noticed in Scottish football. International Ban The ban of football league clubs In England on relfase of their players for Wales and Ireland in Interna tional matches played on Saturdays has placed the Welsh Football association in an astonishing plight.

Wales meets Scotland at Glasgow on October 25. and the Welsh team Bhould have been chosen this wet k. However, a special meeting of the Welsh football council was unable to find enough Welsh players in Welsh clubs and had to adjourn their meeting to see what they could do about it. It is likely they will have to place a team chiefly composed of amateurs in the field against Scotland. Rugby Expands As Illustrating how much cuzbv nas expanded in the last 38 years, the Rugby union has decided to enlarge its grounds at Twickenham to hold seventy thousand people.

This compares with a capacity of thirty inousana in imz. Another indication of manner in which the game is spreading throughout Europe lies in overtures made by foreign countries for Bri tish touring teams. Italy. Roll mania, Czecho Slqvakia, Spain. Holland and Portugal, as well as France, where the game has been acclimatized for many years, are eager to invite British players.

roughrIdersTto use players Regina Granted Permission to Play Andy Currie and Bob Ellis REGINA. Oct. 11. Regina Roughrirler? will be allowed to use Andy Currie and Bob Ellis In their campaign to annex a fifth straight western senior rugby crown, but it was only after a lengthv and stormy meeting of the S.R.F.U. Friday night that the decision was made.

Saskatoon had raised protest over the eligibility of these two men under the residence clause. but the executive of the Union de clared that "their change of residence was legitimate." Not only over these two players did the fireworks occur, but the situation In the southern junior league came in for a lot of dis cussion as well. As the situation stands now if the Moose Jaw Marooi.s beat the Regina Pats In the Mill City today, the circuit will be tied, with the Saskatoon Hilltops awaiting the winners In the provincial final on October 18. Insomuch as next Saturday Is the only open date in the northern city it. wasdecided that should the Miroons win they toss with the Pats, and the losing team journey north to play the Hilltops, the winners of that game coming south the following week to play the winners of the Saskatoon delegates raised plenty of fuss over this arrangement, hut the meeting decided that It was the only way to settle the case.

CAN'T AGREE ON PURCHASE PRICE Majors and Minors Agree On Principles of Draft Rule CLEVELAND. Oct. 11. Agreement by the universal draft principle for the purchase of players by the major leagues from the minors, but a deadlock on the terms of purchase, was reported last night as a conference between officers of the two groups was ended. The two baseball groups reported a deadlock practically as strong as the one at the conference In French Lick.

when the minor leagues supported the limited draft for 4ia1o'llnn it 11 nlovan hu IhK ma inrs. The two groups must reach an agreement by December 1, next, or break off relations, it was said. This also applies to the dealings between the minor league clubs where players are farmed out by the majors. The terms of acceptance of the universal draft, which the minors held out to the majors Ht the conference today included that the price paid for players In the class A leagues be Increased from Jj.000 to $10,000. The price for players from minors to lower classifications would be graduated according to the class.

Entries in FEWER DUCKS THAN USUAL SENT IN Competition Fall Off Whether or not weather put a damper on the spirits of or the enthusiasm of shooters Mat very lew birds have, so far, been entered in the fourth week of The Tribune's duck comnetition. v. Whereas, the first three weeks smashed all records in the matter of entries, the number brought to the Sports Editor's office has fallen off considerably. In most cases the weights are quite light, although II. Skaftfeld, of 666 Maryland has a heavy mallard in.

No pintail has yet been entered in this week's contest. During the hunting season, The Tribune offers prizes of two boxes of shells to the hunter turning in the heaviest duck in each of the following divisions: Mallard, Redhead, Teale, Spoonbill, Bluebill, Canvasback, and Pintail. All that is necessary is that shooters bring the birds to the Sports Editor's office on the fifth floor of The Tribune building to be weighed on the Dayton Scales, especially provided by the International Business Machines Ltd. SPORT JACKET BY ROSS CAMERON' Mark Koenig Reverses Usual Order When pitchers outlive their usefulness in the Major leagues and they are strong hitters, they are generally turned into outfielders or innelders, so that their batting power may not be lost to their clubs. Two notable cases in point are Babe Ruth and George Sisler, the former being a pitcher with the Boston Red Sox before taking to the outfield and the latter coming to St.

Louis Browns as a mound performer. Sisler became one of the game's greatest first basemen and still is playing in the Majors with Boston Braves and is still hitting at a merry CliD. Now. however, there have been some pitching converts from other positional players. Bob Smith, one of the Braves leading Ditchers, came to the Majors as a second baseman, and another player to achieve more fame as a pitcher than as an infielder, Is Red Lucas, who tolls on the mound for the Cincinnati Reds.

During the past few seasons he has been the ace ot the Cincinnati staff after seeiig he had a much better chance to stick in the big show as a pitcher rather than a second sacker. The latest recruit to the pitching corps is the redoubtable Mark Koenig. who at one time played the old Western Canada league. Koentg went to the big show with the Yanks and played the short field before being traded to Detroit. Failing eyesight has ruined his batting vision and when Burky Harris takes his Tigers south to the training camps next February, Koenig will go along to be tried out bs a chucker.

Crisler's Task at Minnesota Mighty Tough Of particular Interest to Minnesotans at the present time, is the task of Fritz Crisler with the Gophers this fall. Appointed coach of Minnesota's football team this year cnsier nnas nimseir lace to lace witn a tasK or real proportions. Minnesta's football team has entered a rebuilding period. Players must be found to plug the several gaps In the ranks, while with the departure of the mighty Bronko Nagurskl. who was either the best fullback or the best tackle, depending on what position he was playing.

In the entire Big Ten conference. Minnesota must lean on some new keystone. It will be Crisier's job to find one and they're not always around to be summoned by the crook of a finger. Growing Lads Pass Through Many Classes Running through the annals of boxing, the fact is brought to light that Bob 5'itzsimmons won the heavyweight championship six years before he won the light heavyweight crown. Ho was 41 at the time he stopped George Gardner for the latter title.

Generally its the other way about. A fighter starts in the lighter classes and finishes up among the heavier divisions. George Carpenticr was flyweight champion of France at the age of 13. He went through all classes and wound up among the heavies. Harry Wills, for many years the Black Menace, built himself up from the flyweight ranks to a belting battler of 215 pounds.

Mickey Walker began as a lightweight. He was king of his division as a welter and now holds the middleweight crown. Walker has further ambitions and figures to establish himself firmly on the light heavyweight throne. The most curious of nil these cases is that of Jimmy McLarnin. the smiling Irish lad from Vancouver.

McLarnin started his career as a sub flyweight. He waded through the flyweight, bantam, feather and lightweight ranks to become one of the leading welterweights of the world. In spite of the fart that he has been ranked with topnotch scrappers for a number of years, McLarnin has never won a cham ninnthin He Is still zrnwlnc. however, every prospect of him becoming more than a first rate middleweight. Joe McCarthy Has Realized His Mistake Joe McCarthy's revenge could be very sweet by escorting an American leasiie entrv to the ton next vear and trouncing the Cubs in the world series but.

of course, the Cubs would have to win a pennant first. McCarthy tried for five years to win a world's title with the Cubs, but it didn't dawn on him until recently, that ho was in the wrong league. National League Sets New Batting Records When National league batting figures were issued at the close of the recent season, it was found that a number of new records had been established. Bill Terry tied Lefty O'Doul's mark, created last. year, for making the greatest number of hits with a total of 254.

Chuck Wilson scored 158 runs, which set a new league record, and he also accounted for 59 two base hits, which is three better than the previous mark made by Delehantv In 1899. Another league record went into the discard when Hack Wilson made 66 home runs to beat the mark of 43 made by Klein last yea, Wilson also set a new major league record for the number of runs batted In. the old mark of 175 having been made by Lou Gehrig, of the Yankees, in 1927. 0 The team batting championship went to New York, who hit for .31, two points better than the major league standard set by Detroit in VUl. Only one record was established in the American league, where the Yankees rapped out 1,683 hits for a new major league mark of 2615 bases.

Gronin Only Short Time in Major League Young Joe Cronin. who is announced as the American league's most valuable plaver for 1930, has had a varied career during his professional baseball days, short as they are. At present, he is 2. yers of age. quite a child compared to other Illustrious names that have appeared on the American league's most valuable player roster.

After playing two years in the minors as a second baseman, Cronin J. V. i DittahiirfrVi T3rnte In 1927. was brought to me majors as a nu In the fol owing he following season ne was noia l. iR ,,,111, th Pirates games in i year when he was purchased by Washington.

His fielding was sensational this summer he was never regarded as a dangerous hitter for his batting averag "of .345 'was Just 102 points better than It was in 1929.

Oct. 11. Otto Von Porat, lanky Norwegian, returning to heavyweight competition after four months lay off, lost on a foul in the first round of his scheduled eight round bout with Angus Snyder, Dodge City, K.intas, in the Coliseum, Friday. The end of the bout came with unexpected suddenness. At the bell sounded, Snyder dropped his hands and was about to go to his corner when Porat crashed a crunching blow to his unprotected chin.

It appeared that Porat did not hear the bell.

While W.

L. "Squib" Ross, presl dent of the Western Canada Rugby Union, refused to give out any information with regard to the arrangements for the playdowns until tiuch time as the various unions have completed their re spective schedules and declared pro vincial cnampions.

As it was, Regina defeated the Manitoba cnampions, and the final for the Western title was plaved at Rei glna. In view of the arrangements mane last year it is tne genera opinion here that the nrairie flna win be played at the home of the Alberta champions this year.

It "fr bwHiwi i a This Winter Hockey, Snowshoeing, Basketball, Curling and Badminton Prospects Good By JOHNNY BUSS Now that the world series is prac tically a thing of the past, rugby will hold the limelight in the sporting universe for the next two months. But with Old Man Winter Just around the corner, the hot stove club is already functioning and rumblings are heard ot the forthcoming icy sea.

son. Times this summer have not been of the best, but by the enthusiasm evinced of various winter organizations, such as curling, snowshoeing. hockey, basketball, badminton and other branches, It should be another big season, for all concerned. Hockey Holds Interest Main Interest, no doubt, is centred around hockey. At present the situation is Jumbled.

It is, however, almost a certainty that the same three senior teams that functioned last winter will again operate. Although play will not start until mid December, the Elmwood Millionaires and Native Sons are busy train lug and the Winnipegs are bound to follow suit within a few days. With the players and officials taking euch keen interest, fans are assured of a better brand of hoekey than that witnessed last season. The added zest, no doubt, is due to the fact that this year's Dominion champions will represent Canada at the 1932 Olympic games. Pre season indications point to onlv a few changes on the various rosters.

There are rumors current that, several players ar thinking seriously of making the jump to the pro ranks. "Red" Jackson, Wllf Starr and Archer are some of tha boys mentioned. Archer Is almost a certainty as he Is going to the coast for a tryout, but fans will in all likelihood see the other two in ac tion when the season gets underway. Two lads, not strangers to local hockey by any means, will perform here this winter. Ken Moore, dashing player of the Regina Pats, will be out with the Winnipegs, while Jimmy Kelly, former St.

Vital and C.P.R. star, and last year with Melville, is in his lot with the Native Sons. Nick Doyle, also of the Melville Milllonelres, who also played In junior company here several years ago, is in the city, but it is uncertain as yet which club he will join. Junior jockey has come to the front with a rush and every year the youngsters gain popularity by their dashing play. And this year should find them more than ever In demand.

It has been several years aince the league operated in two groups, but If ice accommodations can be arranged fans will see the lads battling for honors and divisions at the Amphitheatre and Olympic Elmwood Looks Strong The line up of the teams is doubtful, but you can bet your last penny that the Elmwood Millionaires will again be the team to beat out for the honors. lxok at this array of stars and sea if your choice will not be Elmwood Rice Jones, Bill McKenzie, Kltson Massey, Mac Shewan. Gordon McKenzie, MakarsVy, Workman, Norman Yellowlfes, "Specs" Duncanson, Templeton and several others. They also have a boy named Macdonald. who comes from Fort Frances, and looks ss if he be a real star.

There were many good prospects for junior company In the juvenile ranks last winter, and these no doubt will he found on tho rosters of the various junior clubs. Regina Sees Vision Regina has been busy lining up a team all summer and are out after a feat never before accomplished by a junior hockey team that of capturing the A. memorial cup. emblematic of the Dominion championship, two years in succession. Al Ritchie, coach "de luxe." will be behind the guns again with Pete Egan as president.
