RING GAME THE BIGGEST BOOST IT HAS HAD FOR MANY YEARS London, Dec. a.-Dclegates of the English Scottish, Welsh ami Irish professional football associations at a meeting in London today decided to recommend to their respective as- sociations that international football matches lor this season, be abandon- ed. This decision was reached by the idelo-'ati's after a prolonged confer- ence. At the conclusion of the meet- ing the following statement was is- There is no evidence that the playing of football has hindered or is-hindering recruiting. On the con- trary there is good reason to con- clude that, football, .has. encouraged and has assisted recruiting. In these circumstances this meeting recom- mends'that-except as regards inter- national matches it. is not right that football should be suspended. "This meeting is of the opinion that to deprive the working people of the country of their Saturday af- ternoon recreation, would be unfair and very mischievous." Tim international football matehes are the great sporting events of the vcar in the United Kingdom. They ilraw upwards of spectators travel long distances to wiuic-aa the contests. Hank O'Bay and a few other big league managers know something ab- out that River of Doubt. Jim Scott pitched for a' reform school team. We suggest they send the whole White Sox team there. Marseilles, ill., has a boxer called "Misfit" Snyder. This- is merely to let you know suck a place as Mar- seilles, Til., exists. iL FOR Two Alb.rta Cltlei Think .Th.t Outlook.

This Step, while there are some arguments in its.favor, is a disastrous tor Edmonton, and al- baseball, as it means the ills- gue, and brought to Alberta a bunch of California semi-pro players who were over their depth. Mr. Savage favors a semi-pro league for next season, but would be well-advised if he dropped this idea. The fans want Class 1) ball of the high calibre ot previous years, or none at all.
