Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LEnn^TBRIDGE DAILY HT^RALD .^'niDAY,.AUGUST 9, 1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus FRENCH ARE KEEN FOR Rli SPORTS Tournament Among American Soldiers "Over There" Attracts Great Crowds Special boxing ttxiimaments amongr the American solttiars now in France many of whom had noted pugilistic records to their creillt before joining the colors, are fully as popular with the French as with overseas forces serving under the Stars and Stripes. At a recent series of contests, the principal feature of which was a glove battle between Frankio Bums and Battling IMantell, every available inch of space in the hall, even up to the rafters above the third balcony, was occupied, and many were forced h) gather outside to await the returns. Seats were at a premium two weeks before the show. The whole city � where the bou.ts wers held declared a holiday for the evening, and it was midnight before the celebration was ended. The French people are very enthusiastic about the sport, and many high French officers made special trips for the occasion. The entire force pf American oflicers in the section was represented. A large sprinkling of women was in attendance, and they apparently enjoyed every feature of the entertainment. This section has an array of clever boxers at the present time, and It is expected that some andy repairs radiators ALL WORK GUARANTEED. REAR DALLAS HOTEL (Upstairs) familiar names will figure at the next] show. Burns Shows Old Time Class. Burns, the well known Pacific Coast lightweight and an enlisteil member of the 3.">th Engineer.", upheld his California reputation by knocking out JIantell, a Brooklyn boy who is a member of tlio c.Tvalry sijuadron in the eighth round. Frank .McGuire, also of the ooth Engineers, who hails from Edgewcod Park. Titisburg, nud a former sparring partner for Harry Greb, stopped Young Attel. of the cavalry, with a sucoc-ssion' of right up-percuts to the body in the sixth round. Burns and McGuire scored their second knockout victories within a month on this occasion. Sergeant Eric Ramsey of the engineers, and a Milwaukee, Wis., man had all the better of a bout for four rounds witli Young Vincent of the cavalrj", when ho accidentally landed a swing low on his opponent's body and was disqualified for aa unintcn-. tional foul. By stopping Mantell. who has made his mark against the best boxers in the United States and Australia, Bums again proved he still has those assets which carried him through his earlier fights with Wolgast, Rivers, McFarland, Scaler, the Anextorco man gassed by the Germans, Snail-ham, Hoganfi Azavedo, Ritchie and many other stars who have entered the pugilistic hall of fame within the last ten years. Burns has outlasted all of these men and he and his trainers claim that he is just now at the height of his career. Both men entered in perfect condition. Mantell kept his body well covered during tho first seven rounds leaving Burns only an iron jaw and head to play for. Burns' left hand was in fine working order, as usual, and throughout tho earlier rounds he jabbed and hooked mostly with his left, planting an occasional straight, hard right to the face as a follow-up. At in-fighting some hard body punches were exchanged. On several occasions the situation looked bad for Mantell, but he still kept his feet, fighting. At the start of the eighth Burns dropped all at tempts at defense and waded In, let ting his blows go with full force. Mantell fought back desperately, but he was growing weaker. Gradually his hands dropped to his sides, and the referee, seeing that he was in no position to defend himself, ordered Burns to cease fighting, and raised his right hand in token of victory.

C A A <� *ti JUSTICE FOR LES DARCY. Australian Boxer Was Victim Boxing Trust. Ever since the death ot Les Darcy thoro has been a feeling that tho young Australian was tho victim of about as mean a propaganda as was over turned loose against any man. Australian soldiers passing through this country have lately let drop hints that Darcy was tho target for the attack by an Australian boxing trust. Their stories are to tho effect that at home Darcy was made to light a lot of mysterious misfits who were cheap hams and meet a lot of them shipped out there from America labeled "American champions." They hint that Darcy was paid a more pittance for his boxing In Australia. When he broke away to come to America to fight some real�mon in his class the story runs that the trust or some of its factors, cponed on him all of the guns of abuse they could find and succeeded in getting . the wolves In America on his trail. It such a thing as this Is possible, it is ono of tho dirtiest splotches on the none too clean escutcheon of tho professional tight promoting gamo. The feeling is growing that Darcy was the victim of about as mean and imUerhanded nn attack as can bo found anywhere in tho record of sport. -MiuneapoliH Journal. to height of cross bar and width bo-twoon goal posts.
