If wo have, as most of those Interested in tho gama are led to believe, theu why don't tho commissioners of the city lake up the matter or doing some- thins to the up-keep of the may be nothing new under the sun, but just the same a, lot of new things bob up contin- ually in the boxing game, says Ed W.; Smith. From time .to time freak punches have developed, freak boxers have come up like a flash, the solar pleius was tbe .marvel of n day, the fenovKuDt on the chin and all the rest come to us from time lo time, and some oE them became regular institu- tions in. the ring of sport. Occasionally an unusual boxer will be smart enough to pick up some- thing that was an established feature of the days of long ago 4nd by hand- ling It carefully make a great name for himself, Take the case of Jack Dempsey, the young heavyweight wonder from Salt "Lake. He discarded tbe blow on theichin as his great knockout fea ture. He ,went .bacfe to the old days bare'knuckle' figh'tlng and adopted the Wow under the'.ear or on the'jug 4ar vein as the big kick with which to put the foe down and out.

Chin Protected, Jack did a little figuring for him- self, and having learned that the modern fighter protects his chin to the utmost exclusion, of everything else, set about to pick out some other vnlnerable spot. He harked back to the old days-r-who knows but what it might have been a suggestion by the inimitable Spider then started ouC to develop the Idea In bis own way. He started cracking them around the ear region and in Ihe neck dls- rfct and tbe results were startling. When a man. attacked Jack slapped him off his balance by "a sharp sweep of his Turn, and as the opponent went by he stepped in wilh a right hander Lo said targets. He found the punches there were as good or even better in their results than in constantly aim- ing at the well protected chin. He began loppling them over in a big hurry. V Used by Old Timers, It was merely a system that was highly developed among the old-time fighters who eked out a miserable ex- istence before the mighty John L- and hla smart among them Billy that a tightly padded fist In collision with the point ot a man's Jaw, brought a man doWn heavily and usually for Ihe fatal 10 count. The old-timer aim6d chiefly at point on the heck just be- low tho car and got his results that way. Dempsey cracked Dan Flynn out in B fOUml Iti Atlanta, Other night and did Ihe Irick BO easily that the crp of "aetup" rang out all over tie country.

If you need confirmation of this, get Into communication with Fred Fulton, A municipal golf course could ily be made a paying asset to tbe city, if the commissioners would only take the trouble to put it on a sound wort ing basis. In Edmonton and Calgary, as far as I can learn, they are a decided sue cess and paying their way; If so wh> not in Lethbridge. In many ot the cities in the Old Country where Uie> have municipal courses you will flni they pay, even on the small charges lhat are mude ToV playing over them. In the city oE Glasgow, Scotland, there are three courses kept up by the (I have played over them all.) They employ quite a staff of men to keep these coures in good playing order, yet they only, charge the nomi- nal fee of three, pence (six ceuts) for a round of IS course no'one eipects'to in Western Can- ada on such a small.fee, hut I think If Ihe commissioners were to take up the project the advice and assistance .ol two of pcriehcetl play era'and, draw up proper regulations in regard to tho use of the course and fees to be charged lhat In a very short-time own one of the finest municipal cour- ses in Alberta. Golf courses cannot be kept up without, funds." There is a large amount of necessary work to be doae every year to improve and them in order, but the city council could do it cheaper and tetter than1 a private club can do. What I woald like to see for next year is a small active committee com- posed of enthusiastic players, men who know tbe game, appointed to lake the matter up with the commissioners, men who are willing 'b give a little of their spare time 'iff help tho scheme (From Our Own Correspondent) Blairmore, Aug.
