Marry Greb. of Pittsburg, out-clapped Zulu Kid, of Brooklyn, in an exciting thirteen round bout here Jast night. The bout was stopped in the fourteenth round iu compliance with the closing order issued by Fuel Administrator Garfield. In the other star bouts'' oi* fifteen rounds each, Johnny Martin, of New Haven, outpointed Young Eddy of New York, while Louis Bogash of Bridegport, defeated Al Thomas of New York. m ��� (j� Jfr **� ** ** *** *s* ** ** *3* ? v ? ? ? ? In ihose days of business and cautious boxers it is refreshing to glance over the record oi'*�Ted Lewis, welterweight, champion of the world, and see how tile sensational British boxer hoa rtepartojd from the path usually trodden by the majority of boxing champions. Tod's slogan alwayj lias been fight. Since lie took to tho ring in tho latter part, of Y.)\\), Lewis has engaged in 162 battles in all part* of the world. He won the featherweight championship of England and the Lord Lonsdale belt, emblematic of the title, ;it the National Sporting Club in 3 when he knocked out Alec. Lambert in IV rounds. The next year Ted won the European featherweight championship by defeating Paul Til, the French title-holder;- in VI rounds. Lewis, by .".he way, was the first Britisher toxoid the European title at any weight. Having beaten everybody in his class in Europe, Ted then made a trip to the Antipodes. He had developed into a lightweight, and so feturned the featherweight belt to the National Sporting Club. In T.U4 Lewis won the lightweight championship of Australia by defeating Hughie Mehegan on poiuts in 20 rounds at Sydney. Soon afterwards Lewis put a crimp in Young Shugrue'H championship aspirations by giving him a bad beating in 20 rounds, also in the Land of the Kangardo. Coming lo America, Lewis for a time was unable to secure any bouts, American lightweights not caring to sample the Britisher's wares. Phil Bloom finally took a chance with Lewis, but the Englishman whipped him in easy fashion, and then did the same to Young Jack O'Brien, Frankie Mack, Jack Britton, Mike Glover, Milburn Saylor, Joe Man-dot, and numerous others. Fred Welsh refused to meet Lewis, so the latter had to confine Ills attentions to welters and middleweights. He was hailed as the welterweigin champion when he outclassed Willie Ritchie in that never-to-be-forgotten battle in New York in 1915. Lewis and -Tack Britton fought a 20-round battle at New Orleans on April 2-1, imG, whicn the Englishman lost, and the Chicngoan in turn was recognized as'the world's welter champion. Thirteen times Lewis and Britton met, until on June li5, 1917, Ted turned the tables on Britton, beating him on points after 20 rounds, and annexing the world's title. Since then Ted has engaged in more than a score of battles, and has defended his title more often than any otlier boxer of the present day. Included among his victims are some of the leading iniddle-weights. including the peer of them all, Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul Phantom, and Mike O'Dowd. who was acknowledged the world's middleweight champion when he knocked Al McCoy out recently. Lewis has won hi of his bouts by the knockout *route. making his percentage of knockouts 25 per cent. He has been defeated less tban half a dozen times, and has only been knocked out once, that being soon after he started in the business. Lewis was born in London, Kngland, on Oct. 24, 1896; is a Hebrew, and his real name is Gerahon MenelofL He fought 10 bouts in 1910. 30 in 1911, 24 in 1912, 11 in 1913, and a similar number tfte next year; 20 in 391."i, 19 in 1916, and ^f> hi 191/. Lewis has started the new year b>* winning two more, and is booked for at least haH a dozen to take place within the next month. He holds a world's record for fighting most scraps in a limited period, having fought seven boxers in 14 days laat year, one of these being Albert. Badoud, European welter champion, when Lewis defeated by the K.O. in one round.

J *.-There was a very fair attendance at the regular meeting of the Cardston 1J.F.A. on Saturday at 2 p.m. In the Gaboon Hotel Hall. Not all of the delegates had returned from the big convention at Calgary, and in the absence of the president, Mr. Jas. H. Anderson, Mr. Jaa. P. Low, the first Vice-president., occupied the chair. Reports of the delegates should have been heard by a large number of the farmers, as not all may read the newspaper accounts of the doings at the recent convention. The secretary, Mr. John K. Parrish gave a very good report of the happenings and he showed that the farmers interests were being carefully looked after by this great organization. He was especially pleased with*the broad view and able management of the president, Mr. Wood, and so long as such a man stood at its head he was sure that the farmers of Alberta would gain steadily in members, prestige and influence with the people of the Dominion of Canada.
