"Stuf-ty" reported to Connie JIack as a shortstop, and in spring' practice ahortstopped as best he knew. He was short of stature, and thus was enabled to keep closer to the ground than most shortstops, and had made quite a record at short ia high school ranks. In short, "Stuffy" patted himself on the chest and had visions of making poor old Wagner look like a sieve when it came down to handling grounders around the short field terrain. Then one fine, balmy spring afternoon Cornelius McGillicuddy. called Connie Mack for short, strolled down toward short and says to 'Stuffy," sez he: � .'

Those draws are made In ample time for opponenta to make arrangeraentH that are mutually convenient for atartins off. In the ovont of a player not being able to play. Secretary or Captain must he notified before Saturday ao that another may be Bubatlt-uted. All players eligible to win a competition must have their dues paid. The Ewart Cup will, in all probability, be played for on thti iMth of May, 1918, and the playera will take notice of this intimation and act accordingly. Any now ranmbera deairous o^f beliJg tn the compotltiona must return two Bcorp cards from which handicap wJU bccpmputcd; also old mombera must return scores for the �ame purpose. There Is Just a possibility that fis tic fans In the south country may see Young Al Ross, now the FIghtina Gunner of the 78th Battery, In action herf once more before he proceeds o vrrseas to mix it with the Bochs on the west front. A letter from Ross st ates that he is getting about 15 days leave starting May 15th, and that he would like one more bout In Leth-bridge before he proceeds overseas. He would like a bout here between May 15th and 20th with a good middle weight, after which he wants to go to Winnipeg to visit his mother. Then, he says, he is ready for thia Germans Just as soon as they want to send him across. Efforts are now being made to Qet In touch with some good mlddlc-vveight froi^ south of the line, and if arr-nngements ca|l be made satisfactorily It Is likely- tti� fans wlll^ get th eir wish. .Ross' �tock has goiw away up since the result of the Harrlson-M cGoorty match has. become known and th^re Isn't a doubt the Lethbrldge gu nner would draw a big crowd to see him in a farewell bout.

There are few of the old methods in use in the games as it is carried on today. Formerly battles were fought on the turf, where the principals were obliged to use heavy spikes in their boots to get a good footing. There was little use for rosin in those days. N'owadays there are clubhouses where the spectator can witness the bout in evening dresa if he so chooses. In the old days It was a question as to how hard a fighter could make Ijls muscles, bo as to be able to stand lots of puniabment. There was none of the recently Invented training apparatus to assist one In getting into condition. Punched Sandbags The favorite wterclse .was punching heavy sandbags, which was hard work in itself. It was not until after the SuUlvan-Ryan fight In 1882 that the modern punching, bag was used in training. A man who would put on a glove in the old diiya In a real tight was looked upon as a milksop. The bare tista were the tools, and the man wlio had strong handa would be the favorite every time in those long-drawn-out battlea. With no gloves to proftect the fists they were subject to aevoro strains, and often the principals were obliged to fight round after round with only one hand, so badly was the other injured in puinmellng an opponent. In the first fight for a world's championship In -which th'd best man of his country waa aent over' to meet tho Bngliah champion, Tom Sayers.'who carried tho Brltlah colors, he fought tho last few rounds ot hta fight with John. Vj. Heenan, the American champion, with a broken arm, and kept things going until the referee called It a draw. Hardened Hands At that time flghterB with soft handa spent moat of their time hardening them. It waa necessary to pickle the handa so that they would stand tho sM-aln. The daya of bare fists and brute atrength are past and gone in so far as the boxing game ia concerned. Fighting ia more of a science now, and It la the man with tho science as well aa tho punch that wins. The oldtlme tighter had no idea how to land aclontlflc knockout blowa. The knockout blow la well develop ed now, and all tho fighter has to do Is wait for an opening. It Is unlikely that fighters of today have any more force to their blows than the oldlimers. They simply know where to land, and they don't have to waste a lot of energy. WHEAT COMES THROUGH New York, April 30.-Zach Wheat is on his way to Join the Brooklyn Natlon&l League team here, it was announced today; by the club management.
