The marked Improve- ment in tho ranks of tho white heav- ies during the past twelve months is most gratifying, and indicates that tho time is not far off when u white man will again be In possession of the coveted title of champion. From mere "prospects" a few .months ago, several heavyweights have .developed to the stage where they are now reck- far, and If the Aquatics deliver the Cleveland, put the Indian sign on th' goods there will be some excitement befcre the winter is over. The sport "sup." says the ice on the rink will present a more respectables appearance on this occasion. If it does not, look ouc for squalls. Mayor Hatch will go out of office In a storm, veteran last February. While not knocking Attell out, Kilbane so decis- ively outclassed his opponent that a decision in his favnr was the only rul- ing the referee could possibly make.

HUNDRED FIVE-MAN TEAMS IN THE RUNNING MARKETS Nevertheless Ad was a great liitlu fighter: "Fighter" heat describes him. Ho WHS not a clover boxer and won and maintained his place at the top by sheer ability to assimilate punish- incut and "outlast" his opponents. In that respect Ad was a second Hat- tling NeUon and might have reigned a while longer, as he is only 24 years of ago now, had the operation for appendicitis not seriously Impaired his vitality. i The passing; of tho title into the hands of Willie Ritchie marks the resumption of rule of the clever boxer In the lightweight ranks. Since Nel- son won from.1 the late Joe Gans the. "slugger" has dominated the division, but with Ritchie at tho head the scientific boxer comes into his own. Ritchie's success' will also mean the "raising" of the lightweight limit to 135 pounds which will permit the skil- ful McFarlaud and Britton to com- pete for tho honors. With RUcbie, SlcFarland anil Britton, and Freddy Welsh In to safeguard the title there, would appear to bo Mtlo danger of the championship escaping the clufches of the "scientific" brigade for a long time to come. Johnny Coulon, present bantam- weight champion, is the lud whoso proud title Is thought to be in ardy. Judging by the calibre of his recent exhibitions in New York the fear is apparently well founded. Kid Williams, the (Baltimore whirlwind, outpointed the champion at Madison Square Garden last September and it was only the "no decision" restric- tion that saved the "champ's" reputa- tion. It is not only here In tlie east that1 Coulon. will encounter opposition of a strenuous nature. Out California way there is a youngster named Eddie Cam pi who has won the admiration of the fans by the easy manner he has cleaned up all the good little men of the western country. Promoters arc now negotiating with Kid-Williams and terms are suffic- iently attractive the Baltimore boy will shortly journey to the coast after Eddie's scalp. The winner will then be matched with Coulon for the title. So no matter how the Will i a ins-Cam pi scrap terminates the outlook for John- ny is hot a cheerful one. But then youth must he served and Coulon has had his illng. Inr the middleweight division the question of "who's who" is largely a matter of conjecture.

I withdrew from the picture in a hunt for easier game in the wilds of France, and Gibbons and McGoorty when fin- ally matched failed to show anything approaching championship form as measured according to the Ketchel standard. The situation is practically unchanged from a year ago, with Mc- Goorty, Klaus, Dillon and Gibbons ranking among the leaders. Let. us hope that the year 1013 will he more prolific in the production of good middleweights, and that before an- other twelve months have passed the question will be solved and a worthy leader established at the head of the division.

The tournament of 1913 bids fair to be the mbai stupendous event of Us kind ever" attempted. Posters, entry blanks and. bulletin No. 1 were sent broadcast by Secretary A. L. Langtry, for the big tourney's opening is two months' hence, all the details have been arranged. It is the hope of the tournament of- ficials that upward of 600 live-men j teams will enter the. while a' corresponding number of two-men teams and individuals are assured. This would mean a representation of approximately 4000 bowlers, the very cream of the United States and Can- ada. Last year at Chicago, 596 two-men tennis contested in the tournament and as each renewal of tho event has shown a substantial Increase, partic- ularly In the major division, it Is pre- dicted that the- five-men team entry alone, may reach 650, far surpassing all previous marks. The Tclsdo BowHnjr Tournament OP- has closed a contract for sixteen, ot tie beat alleys and automatic spotters, together with 600 sets of pins, and for ton days prior to the opening of the tourney, a force of expert mechanics will begin the installation of tho equipment. The tournament will ho hold in the Toledo Coliseum, a building, centrally located and within oiisy walking dislnnco of the landing hotels.
