Extra seating accommodation is expected to be necessary. The boys are out working hard to make this game a real success and the fans are responding liberally so far. Raymond has truly got the basketball bug, and when it comes to support the Raymond boys don't have to worry in the least. The latest report is that they are now trying to make arrangements with the C. P. R. for a special train to accommodate the large number coming up, that is if the weather does not permit the autos to be used. It has been a long time since a special train has been ordered by, a bunch of basketball supporters, so it can readily be understood what importance Raymond lays to. this! game.

The second team will be picker] from the following: P. Irwin, centre; A. Skeith, C. Jones, M. Dowsett; forwards; H. Hudson, A. Stewart, John Shand, guards.

BASKETBALL The Illinois Athletic Club, Chicago, won the Central Amateur Athletic Union basketball championship last nigh}, defeating the mystic A. C. of Chicago, 32 to 17. New York, Feb. 20.-"It's certainly good to see a fighter of the aggressive, rushing type these days," observed an old timer recently. "Nine boxers out of every 10'who arc fighting now lack the steam and the love of a battle that the pugs of the old days had. And believe me, the fightin' of other years had it all over the stylo of today." The old fight fan was looking rather wistful and-'we asked him ,wTi'o, among the present day fighters, could compare with some of the better mixers of the old day?. .; "When it comes to that," said ho, "I don't believe I can name many who are as good at the business of standing toe to toe and slugging, feinting and blocking as they used to be 15 and 20 years ago. In the lighter weight classes the boys have come more ant" more to making the game a sparring game, pure and simple. You seldom hear of knockouts. In the class of the biggest heavyweights I don't figure the field can hold a candle to the old timers, but there are two boyr in the lightweight class who have some of the traits that made the game of other years a thriller. Names Dillon and Mlske "They are Jack Dillon and Billy Miske. I might mention one or two others, but what's - the use? These two fellows look like the cream of the lightweights. I can't say anything about Darcy, for, ot course, I haven't seen htm in a-battfe, but they say he is a toe to toe slugger and likes .to mix it. "When Dillon and Miske go into battle they go in there for blood. I've seen a lot of fights, but there are few of them that, can be compared  with a battle'betweenrthese two for good solid, unadulterated slugging. Both can hit, and it seems like every time they start a punch they stick vicious-ness into it. They show a fellow something for his coin. Won Tltli for Jeffries "You know," continued the old boy, "that that' sprt^.of battlin' iB what won the title ifor Jim Jeffries. He was a devil in' close quarters and he loved a fight. He wasn't clever like Corbett, but he was young and tough and he fought with eve^y '� ounce of brawn and determination he had in his body. "I was oh hand when Jeff fought Corbett at Coney Isjand back in 1900, nearly 17 years ago. Say, there was a battle* for 'you,' and- Corbett put up a wonderful fight even though he had a younger and stronger man in front of him. Corbett knew he had a tough egg in Jeff, and he depended on his craft to put him oyer.. "Well, you knbw4Jeff put him out in the twenty-third round, and everybody  was surprised,' because they thought-Jim was slick-enough to stick out the 25 rounds and get another match right awayv^ They did fight later, but not at Coney. -Corner* Corbett "After Jeffries had pushed that, fight for 20 rounds, forcing Corbett around the ring and following him every inch of the way, cutting loose with volleys of rights and lefts and goin' just like an engine, he found he'd have to corner Corbett if he hoped to hang on the winning wallop, and this finally., happened in the twenty-third rounu.-,, "It was Jeffries' ''aggressiveness and love of a fight that' made him a winner. And' it's juatithat kind of stuff In Dillon and Miske that makes them looks so good. The old hammer away idea is the idea, it 1b. You can have all your fancy boys. Put 'em in frames for all I care. But give me the ham mer and tongs lads who love to fight." SAYS GOVT. OF (J. S. The Bulldogs Are Coming I PpWER-Power is.the very life of your can It is the energy that; makes the car leap forward in, the instant get-away.
