Lyon the amateur golf champion of Canada, will compete in the amateur championship tournament of the Western Golf association, to be held at Chicago commencing Monday. The reason for this is that tho Canadian champion desires to protect his amateur standing and as he has received much ambiguous information concerning the golf situation in the United States, he bus decided to remain at home. There is a "war" on between tho United States Golf association, which Is the national governing body, and the Western Golf association governing all territory west of Pittsburg, but. affiliated with tho U.S.G.A. Tho war centres around tho ruling of the U.S.G.A. Hint all persons directly or indirectly making a living from golf are professionals. No Rest for Him "His wife married him to reform him." "Yep.

But he is not going to be the only one. There are others equally well up on their respective positions who will weld themselves into the team. Now none of this is in (he air. It is all cut and dried and in the course of a few days' time Vulcan can look forward to having a ball team which will be second to none. The new management are working overtime to give (lie fans something for their money and by the signs and portents the fans are going to get what they are looking for: a cracking good Al ball team.-Vulcan Advocate. LEFTY RUSSELL OF, ALBERTA FAME IS To prove that Pollock made a sucker play, allow us to recite some ancient history. In the first place, Welsh was offered a match with Ki! bane in Cleveland or Cedar Point. O fifteen rounds to a decision. Matt Hinkle was willing to stage the match and offered a purse of $85,000. Ki! bane said he would not take a cent and allow Freddy to pull down tho entire bunch of coin. When Pollock and Welsh hesitated over that, proposition, Kilbane and his manager, Jimmy Dunn, offered to stage the match themse'ves and give Welsh every cent, that came through the gate. You see they were certain that Freddy could not last fifteen rounds in a, hard fight, and if he did he would be outpointed 'and outclassed so badly that he was bound to lose the referee's decision. But. there was nothing doing, despite the assurance of a gate which would exceed $50,000. It didn't seem enough, and it was decided to stick to the ten round game and pick up some more soft money. Welsh figured that he. was good for another year, and at the end of that time he could retire with the title and convert it into cash through advertising. blind and tho match fell through,,Yel he sat in Welsh's corner recently anc\ saw his man go down in defeat, whilr^ an audience which paid $13,100 lookf ed on. It surely was a bargain, tot Welsh had nothing to gain and every* tiling to lose. j ,' The lightweight championship. 14 the most, popular in the world 'and! means a fortune for the holder. AnJ active boy like. Leonard who has a good following, and commands tha respect of the public can make $50,00fj a year with little difficulty. He. can command his own price when he,'np< pears in bouts and the stage will pay big money to sign him up for a,sea-( son. Then there aro advertising; schemes which will add to his hank roll especially now that ho is tlm idol of the fans. So it easily can be figured out that the lightweight crown is worth a pile of money, and if one gets down to real facts it represents-virtually $1,000,000. Fifty thousand a year is 5 per cent, on $1,000,000, and it seems strango that an income like that should bo sold for a paltry $5,000. Fight critics have doped it out that Leonard allowed Welsh to beat him in that second match last summer to -givo him confidence for a third jn'i-counter. Perhaps that Is true, but wo cannot see it that way. It was fortunate, however, that Welsh won that second battle, for ho had no tear of Monday night's scrap and was morn confident than at. any other time in years. Another theory Is that Johnny Kilbane trimmed Welsh just, enough to make him easy picking for Leonard. Johnny gave Freddy a terrible lacing, and it might be that the form, er champion had not completely recovered. At any rate lis didn't look: like tho same boxer when he got Into action. All of which makes us won. dor if Kilbane and Leonard ever will get together. What & match, that would make! --- .

Lofty Russell, formerly of the Edmonton Eskimos, tho big southpaw Bob Brown disposed of to Brooklyn on trial, apparently has made a decided hit with tho dopesters who have seen him unfurl hts limber left wing. Russell unfurled his salary member the other day for the benefit of ilie seribos and tho Eagle ^ correspondent dashed back to his office and hammered off these lines; Experts who have seen Lefty Russell warm up in practice at Ebbets Field' predict; n great future in the majors for the new southpaw of the Superbas. He has plenty of "smoke," a fair assortment of curves and has a good change of pace. He reminds many of Nap Rucker at tho timo tho Pride of Alpharotta joined the club, although the lad from Soattlo is not i verdant as the Gerigia Peach was thon. Everybody knows how quickly Nap learned tho ropes, although it took at least a year to cure him of a diet of peanuts, ice cream and planked steaks for luncheon prior lo his pitching a gamo.

He should be ready to show hts wares in a regular game soon. Last winter Billy Gibson tried hard to match Leonard and Welsh in a 40-I round bout in Havana, Cuba. The I purse was $40,000 and Pollock was given the privilege to cut it any way he saw fit. But nothing came of it. Two weeks ago another offer was made. A 20-round decision bout was to be pulled off some place in Connecticut, near New Y'ork and the receipts would hnvo amounted to anywhere from $50,000 to $75,000. Gibson says he was willing to go in for nothing, and if Welsh didn't care to gamble he would offer him a flat guarantee of $40,000.
