A number of Ihc White Sox tuay find it rather shocking to be that they're "worklntf for tin 1 club," as Bush siiBsjest-s.

A year ni;o Johnston, Buckley and Conway were working together. If you lire willing to call that kind of business working, to bring about u meeting between Sharkey ami Gene Tm;ncy. Mr. Johnston, who now o'.i-ns one-third of the then 'had « 10 j per cent Interest In Sharkey. The H-I-IIC has changed a bit since then, but U:e crowd that moves the set- tines u round remains [he same. Scott Is a fighting man will not erase. One of these Is still fresh. H Is the picture of Scott, swooping to the resin In a beautiful spiral after being tapped on the hip by OUo Von Porat. Still another of these persistent memories Is of Phil Scott claiming foul in his bout with Campolo when ' ' rude.list of! ip V, flldiu Social Clubs One of ihc scribes who writes pieces for the papers In New York says the Sharkcy-Scott affair will Howley has his i )><, „ |,| B social turnout.

"Of course," says Dan, "fellows like CrlU who give you everylhlng they've got won't have to put on the monkey suit and lake a morii- itiL; \uirkout afler-they have al- talncd the projH^r condition.

"Uall piuyers nre asked to give only a few months out of the year to Ihelr business. 1 believe In giving Ihe limit during those feu- months." Both Chicago and Cincinnati wound up in the second division last year. If they.end the season behind the eight ball this year, it won't be because Bush and How- Icy couldn't Keep Iheni awake.

Some are in favor of retaining Ihe Union Jack but adding to it something distinctive. y Catnpalo as this was a palpable cul. Mr. Donovan probably was inawarc of the new rules by which a bust In (he eye Is foul tactics so \e told Phil to be about his business, which was Supposed lo be l>rli-.e lighting. Therb is y0 f, another plaiinjvt; note which persistently echoes In our ear. It Is the scream to which Scott gave vent when he ran into one of Johnny Hlsko's body punch es In their flght In Cleveland. Phil sank to the floor, wearing his best dying gladiator's face and regarded Referee Pasy Haley with trie mien of a sick swan. Mr. Haley never had heard of Ihe new style by which a sock In the ribs Is, Illegal, so he bade Philip to be u» and doing. Scott has claimed foul n times, if scattered records are correct, nad this claim has been granted nine limes. Among the caullflov;ers frcm whom Scon has won on fouls are George Cook, Rlcnrdo Bertaz- Milo, Armando do Coralls, Yale Okun, Guardsman Penwill and Otto Von Poral, quite a few of them palpable palookas. It was Scott's victory over Von Porat, via Hie foul rente, tliat led lo adoption o! a measure by the New York boxing fathers, cutting the wages of fighters involved In foul affairs. Mr, Sharkey, the other half of Ihe Miami match, also has teen known to yell ouch on what wu cannot repress calling divers occasions.

In Ihe old days fighting was Illegal, yet Baltimore hud fights, and better ones than we have been privileged lo see In our lime since Uemgxsey quit battling men around. In order lo get around Ihc little legal obstacle, fights were held under the guise of meetings of Ihe "social club." ftl Hcrlonl figured tuigely In these meeting.';. He would take a position solemnly in the center of the ring before the tight and be- _ln tile formality of reading the minutes of the last meeting. Off With thr Urrby! Inevitably there would be a loutl demand that Mr. Hcrford remove ills hat before he started reading the minutes. Al's brother, whose name we have forgotten, would make u motion that the minutes of the last mecllng bo dispensed with and Al would crawl out of the ring, hat intact. The club then would proceed to lake up new business in the • form of ear-scrambling. A gentleman and patron of the nrls named Hayes was at that lime mayor of Baltimore. The social clubs nowadays are a liltle different from those of the old days In Baltimore. It is the fighters who are socially inclined in modern meetings around the. roped arena. The polka rather ihun the i»klng Is the newer form of diversion The higher a person climbs, the Icsse he weighs.
