SouEU la president, ^as orgiinized''lii December, 1916. ' ' " � It is composed of amatour trapsboot-ers, pledfced to the policy of advancing the Interest of Individual amateur trapshooters, and of local IrapsbootinK clubs. In the two years of Its existence Che association has made remark-I able progress.; . \ ^ During 19lt 212 gun clubs applied tor affUlatlod with the A. A, T. A., bringing the total number of affiliated dubp up to 1602. These clubs repre-�ent a total mtmbership of over 80,000 men and women, who are Interested In the sport of trapshootlng. DorloK the year 1516 Indlvldoals joined the asBO-claUon. The A. A T.'a. has been worked up so well that'it now has'organizations In '47 states, six Canadian provinces, In Alaska and Hawaii. 62 Canadian clubs are enrolled. The ofticert of the association besides Mr. Souta are Dr. Horace Betts.ot \Yilmington, Del., and Charles W. BUllngg of OceaSpprt, N.J., llrat and second vice-iireBldentt, G. 0, Graham, secretary and treasurer. V The president of each affiliated state association is dlso a natlQnal vice. president. To encourage lb* individual shooter to improve his scores and to raise his average the American Amateur Trap-shooters' association offers a series of proficiency medals, which to win the shooter must tnmlli a certain number of scores of a certain average in each class. A bronze medal Is awarded in the 75.per cent, class, a German silver medal in the eighty per cent, class, a sterling silver medal in the 83 per cant class, a 10k gold medal in the 90 per cent class and a I'tk solid gold medal in the 96 per cent class. During 1917 a toUl of 1049 proficiency medals were awarded by the association for scores made in club shootj; 545 new contestants entered the A. A. T. A. medal race during the year. The plans of the A. A. T. A. tor 1918 are broader in scope and will accomplish more than over before the purpose, of the assopiatlon-to encourage regular dub shooting and to stimulate increasedVproflciency on the part of Individual shooters. The medal plan has bean revised so as to allow more members tq take an active part in the competition, and a 98 per cent solid gold medal is offered for the first time. One of the chief arguments in favor of the A A. T. A Is that the contest tor association me dais add intereft to olnb shoots. BOXINO OXME mOSPEROUS. Ooed Boute Are; Ming. SUged - In bitlet of MlaeletlppI River :, Ofcitriet.- � ; -Down in what is known as the Trl-pity district.i^long.the Mississippi river In Illinois and Iowa, the boxlpg game Is undergoing a spell of jp-osperity rights now. that stamps th^t section as one of the pugilistio centres of the middle west. Rock Island, HI., and Davenport, Iowa, are taking the lead in a revival of boxing, and, some mighty, good scraps are-being .staged in that vicinity. . ' '. � ' Thb sport In' Bock Island'Is in the hands of capablOi officials, who see that It is run in a'business-like.manner. "Babe" Meaner runs the shows and Jack Tlghe, an old-time baseball man, Is one of bis main backers. * ' At Davenport-the sport is just be-'ginning to'open up after several dormant years.' The last show In Daven-pon iwag in 1907, � when Packey Mo- S%rland and Kid Hern^, a brace of Chicago tentvm, staced a 15-roUnd bout. This aerap aroused the ire of the governor to such an extent that he Ordered out the mlUHa to stop it: The militiamen occupied ringside sqats, but did not interfere, and Captain Kulp, In charge, of the company, was afterward courtmartiale4. Bob Rutobtnion, however, is run nine a new club in Davenport that 's organized under the membership plan. The olub is paid to have the backing i)t the s-uthoriUea.and lo have reached a membership of 2500. The first bout put on was between Johnny Noye of Minneapolis, and Charley Scully of Cht-oagor a few. nights ago, and It was anacetsful. The revival of boxing in the frl City diatrlot may eventually .lake Jome of^ths Oklcaco yatroaage away from bouts at Racine and Milwaukee, which have been the Mecca of Chicago fight faas for many years. .' ' JUST RECEIVED A Shipment of Patches for the Marvel Junior : Vulcanizer : There is. a strong possibility that Young Al. Ross will put on the gloves in a ring encounter at least once more, before he goes to .Sarcee Camp. Harry Hudson is now in Moose Jaw and all arrangements are practically made for a return match between Ross and Frankle K.O. Brennan there about April 10th. If they come together Moose Jaw fans will certainly see a great mill. The two boys are well matched, but Ross is of the opinion that he could get a decision over the Detroit pug this time..' , There mill here will be remembered for a long time as the fastest' bout ever staged In Lethbrldge; Brennk^ .and Joe Grimm ot Drumhell^ are picked to meet tonight at Drumheller. Brennan is-a big favorite, though Grimm is 20 pounds heavier. ' � Billy Miller and K. O. Brennan ' will mix at Vulcan Good Friday afternoon. Local tans will remember Miller as the welterweight who went six fast rounds .here with Andy Russell a^ a semi-wind-up to the Talt-Whitey go last Oc-" tober. The Edmonton Journal sport writer commenting on the. Talt-Al-llson bout, says: ^ "In addition to his title of Cana-;dlan lightweight boxing champion, Clonle Tait is now the lightweight ^champion of the State of Iowa, if :Neal Allison, whom he outpoint-..ed Thursday night at Lethbrldge, ~ had formerly any claim to that proud title. On the same line of. reasoning, however, a certain Rocky Kansas of Buffalo, would be the rightful champion of Canada,  as he handed Clonle an artistic .trimming on the shores of Lake Erie recently. Boxing and wrestling titles are Queer animules, and the only ones of any moment are those prefixed by the word world's " At that the native son had .quite a contest at Lethbrldge and In the second round Clonle was floored by a left hook to the jaw. Tait was back on his feet before the referee started counting, keeping his opponent at al-m's length with his straight lefts. According to Lethbrldge critics the bout was a no-decision affair, aiid the blows of both boxers lacked Bteaiii," >, FIOUS PLUN BACKINIURF John A.

New York, March 20.-For the first time in more than a decade, the famous colors of John A. Drake; the light blue and gold, will be seen cn the local race-tracks this season. The western sportsman, who In the halcyon days ft the turf, before the repeal 61 the Percy-Gray law i;T 1908, owned and raced so.rae ot the greatest thoroughbreds In America, has reentered the sport wlth^two Imported two-year-olds as a sWrter: The Drake horses'afe Midas II, by McDonald II, oul ot Mary Louise .III, and an unnamed colt by Light B.ri-gade and Panne. Phil Chinn, the Kentucky horsemanrVdnght them, for him In England last .year, and Mr. Drake thinks .so muQh�.ot them that he has entered- them Itf'many, juvenile stakes. .�* For the last three or four years Mr. Drake has been a dalljr visitor at the Metropolitan tracks. He made many wagers, but they'never were large enough to.cause any excitement, such as In the old days, when he kept the patrons of the ;sport oh tho qui vive, awaiting his wagers on a race. Mr. Drake loves a thoroughbred, .and has always been an admirer of a champion. It: v;a3 common gossip on the tracks last year that he was a part owner of tho Kentucky stable, the nominations of which '{ always have beeii made by Mr. Chinn,-. A Plunger of. Old. In the old days of ! the turf, Mr. Drake ' was probably the most con splcuous racegoer In America. With the late John W. Gates, he won and lost fortunes on the success or de-teat of a single horse,; Time and again it was reported that their win ning on a single event- extended into six figures, but invariably both declared that the reports ;'their winnings had been grossly exaggerated, . Some of the thoroughbreds which carried tho Drake silks will live for ever In turf history, fdr they earned undying fame by defeating the best horses in thh country in some of the richest and most historjc classes. In 1902 he won the two most coveted fixtures on the American turf. His Wyeth raced home in front ot a big tield fn tho American Derby in Chicago, and his two-year.old Savable won the Futurity al Sheepshead Bay by a head after one of the greatest faces run for the famous classic. Bacii ot these fixtures was worth many thousands ot dollars, and it was reported at tho time that the Drake-Gates combination had wagered heavily on etch of tlieir winners. ' In one day at Chicago his colors dashed home in front on four horses. Jackey Garner carried them to victory on funnels, Hebo, Wea and Ireland- 1 ' ''  While a score ol the,Drake thoroughbreds earned rich pursist agd fame; it was Ort AVelis which was considered his best. Thls'oblt was.one of the speediest and...g$meieeu started to-800 that Lefivitt produces more ho^s this year than ever before. Barley is a sure crop here ahd every farmer has expressed his Intention ot putting in every available acre ot wheal land that he has and then planting barley on every foot oi\ tillable land left, so that Leavitt may head tho list in the hog production campaign advertised by the. Dominion Dopart-niont of Agriculture. The farmers' slogan this year In Leavitt is: "Wiieat and Hogs." To aid them In this work the women ot the district have planned a now schorao in connection with their* weekly meetings in,Belief Society and Primary, Previous, years have required either the men or at least their teams to stop work and drive, tlie ladles to tliese meetings during the week. Now they plan to arrange tor these two extra meetings on Sunday so that the men will not be hampered in any. way during their spring work. George Mathews, with his Keystone drilling outfit, has succeeded in getting another excellent well In this district. The lucky farmer this time l.s AltHed I^eavitt. Ho has tho very best of water and. an unlimited supply ot It. This makes the-third well for Mr.' ^ralthev;s in this district since la.st fail, and two of them have been flowing wells. Toronto, March 19.-Over thirty thousand people attended the six games played at the Arena last week, including the Allan cup games, and in the neighborhood of $25,000 wks taken In at the" gates, according to the announcement of Manager Querrle.
