Chicago.-Now that the edict has gone forth from Washington for every able-bodied man between the ages of 21 and 50 to either fight or work. It begins to look like boxing, prizefighting and sparring will go into hock tor the duration of the war. The edict ot Provost Marshal General Crowder perhaps hit the boxing game about as hard, if not harder, than any other line of sport. Outside 6t Jess Willard, it is doubtful if there are many prize ring gladiators to-day, ot any division, who are beyond tlio years ot draft age and who at the same time can draw a crov/d to the ringside. Perhaps more than any other athletic endeavor, prize fighting Is a game for the younp. The speed, the stamina and the strength required for a man to wade through a battle from six to 20 rounds in length is not with the older boys, in fact, statistics will bear,out the assertion that most of the fighters are in their prime between the ages of 18 and 25. After that they begin to wane and when once past 30 they are through forever, as a rule. Already most of the stars, liko Benuy Leonard, Mike and Tommy Gibbons, Johnny Kilbane, Eddie .Mc-Goorty and others are In Uncle Sam's service, either in active service or at the training cantonments showing the doughboys how to iiandlo thoir fiats tor possible contingencies with the Hun in hand-to-hand battles. But with the government on the warpath to weed out the idlers and those engaged in useless occupations it won't be long until all the boxers havR gone to war or into business more useful, and If wo want to see a bout we'll have to journey to some training camp. But It It's going to help lick the Hun we're for it and will be satisfied to indulge our passion for the manly art by reading the art of aelt-detense as practiced by the boys In the days before the war. URGES COMPULSORY ATHLETICS Quartet Expected to Fight Out for Ciinmpiohship This Year It Chicago Sport Official Wants All American Boys to Compete, Chicago.-With Uie no^thorn golf .leaaon opening. Interest turns to the possibility ot a change In the national woman's title, now held by Miss Alexa Stirling ot Atlanta. .Miss Stirling probably will not enter national competition this year as she is devoting most ot her time to war work and some time ago announced that .she probably would seek to drive an ambulance for the women's council ot national defense. Competition tor the title Is likely to result In a four-cornered drive between Mrs, W. A. Gavin, of .N'ew York; Mrs. Dorothy Campbell Hurd, holder of the north and south title; Miss Eluino Rosenthal, former nortli and south champion, and Mrs. Ronald Barlow, ot Philadelphia. Mrn. Gavin, tlie former champion, h regarded us one of the most brilliant women goiters in the country. She is now engaged In patriotic matches, receipts from which will go to the Red Cross. Mrs. Gavin v.'as not among the contenders for the nortli and south title at Pinehurst and the other three women have a little start on her, but her form so far has been excellent and it is thought she will havaw good chance to retrieve her title. .Mrs. Hurd, who is better known to the golfing world as Miss Dorothy Campbell, played some wonderful golf in the south this year and is certain to give Mrs. Gavin some lively competition.

I.,amport, president of the Chicago Athletic association and vice president ot the Fort Dearborn National bank, who evolved the idea of compulsory athletic training for all Americans from the ages ot 14 to 21, has prepared and published a short synopsis of Ills plan to aid In the quick development ot the American race by taking advantage ot the great love of outdoor sports prevailing throughout this country. Lamport has been engaged in aiding amateur sports and developing the youngsters of Chicago for many yefirs. As president of the Lincoin"^ park board ho was foremost in the Inals' tenco that the youth of the city bo given every advantage the parks had in the way ot supplying playground needs. In the management of his bank he has always been strong for athletics, and found that the best employes are those who kdop them-selves in good condition by partlcl pating in sports. The Fort Dearborn baseball team of the laBt few years has boon one of tho best amateur tcaras of the country. Tho quickness with which our soldiers who had been given athletic training before going into tho array wore advanced has proved tho value ot alhlelica Bystematically administered in tho development of a race and tho raising ot an army. The Ger-maua forgot American athloticB when they figured this country could not quickly train its men. The wonderful showing made by our athletes has proven the value of athlulicK, and It is Lamport's idea that if all our y.outli Instead o� less than 10 per cent, as at present is tho caso, got the best of atliletlc training ImmeaBurablo good will result, For the hoys like uthlotlcs, /especially tlio kind dovclopoil in this country, and If given a chance practically every youth would develop along the lines that would make hlin a hotter man In every way than he can hope to bo under tho prosonl system.
