Because of this it Is Im- probable that the team will be mater- ially affected by the national army draft. The majority of ton players are mar- ried and have families dependent upon them for support and not a few of them are more than thirty-one years o't .lie.

Gibbons, middleweight cicellent, Is too busy to bother about a little thing like s mere fight' between a couple of professional scrappers. That is, Mike's too busy to bother about the variety of box fights, for Mike Is spending his time these days clubbing .a bunch of young huskies Into fighting shape at Fort Dodge, which lies Jusl out of DCS Molnes, Iowa. Mike had a chance to take on Harry Greh in an encounter, qt Pittsburg and was ready to sign articles until con- ditions were like, so ho requested Eddie Kane, his man- ager to call off proceedings and let bint keep on teaching the soldiers how to box. Gibbons tikes Work Mike is so wrcjpped np In this thing I can hardly get him to talk said Kane recently. He 30.1 out of heil one morning at 6 o'clock ind went out to the camp to watch the soldiers go through their calisthen- ics. He wanted to sec It all and team it, for he is going to Introduce a Mike Glhbons system lo Ihose fellowi. He certainly Is getting wonderful re- nulls .with lhe work ho already lias sUrted."
