Harry Mullln, a British Columbia hero from Victoria, was decov-aled with tlie \'lctorla Cross at Buckingham Palace Jiy the KiUB, (By Sol Metzger.l "That's fighting! That's what I've been waiting to see! Tliat's what counts! To the devil with this boxing stuff!" These were the exclamations of a Canadian officer who had-been through two years of it "over there," as lie sat by my side al a ring-side at one of our big army cantonments somewhere in America after two heavyweights had been scrapping for the camp championship a little more than a. minute. Up to this bout he had been silent. But when the two big boxers got after each other with all tlie fury of madmen, threw all discretion to the winds and kept up a rain of dreadnaught blows upon each ot')iev the Canadian! for the first time, spoke. This wild, furious cave-man battle in the ring caused him to tell a story. "I was 'over there' early in the game," he nald, "and 1 had finite a bit. to do with our boxing. We soon dropped all thai and just got the men to figlit. Put the gloves on them and sent them at each other. Oli! it was a wonderful training for them. Made them scrappers all the w-ay through. They're all fighters now. every blooming one we send over, and we keep it up for them all the lime they are in rest billets. Boxing don't go with us. We found out early In the game we needed fighters. So we teach the men to fight-not to box. Has it helped?" "Say, you know." he aaid and his face'was lighted with pride, "the Canadians haven't a half bad fighting record, have they?" Rolfe From Calgary. "Speaking of fighting instead of boxing,' he continued, "makes me think of a boy from Calgary named Rolfe. Never had the gloves on before he joined our army. Since he's been in France, he's fought seventeen bouts and had sixteen knock-outs. He can whip any boxer in the world, I think, though, he knows precious little about boxing, lie's just a tighter; they all are. That's what you want lo go in for more and more-fighting! Thie boxing is all right, buj, get them to fighting. It counts so heavily with the men when they mix up with the Hun." 1 got his point as the heavyweights fought on. They were slashing each other with telling blows, blows that but tor the gloves would have felled each ot them and the doughboys packing the "Big Y'" stood on tlie benches and yelled their heads off-or tried to. It was the first time during^tho evening thSt the crowd had gone clean wild, though it had already witnessed three of the cleverest boxing bouts one ever had the good fortune to see. Cheer them they had. But now there was a din to the noise such as only several thousand well trained healthy soldiers can break out with when the business al hand has (luick-ened tlieir pent up admiration for the fighting spirit. They were seeing tor the flitit time tiiat night, u >iiliolo-souled scrap, the kind of display of spirit that each' ot them knew ho must show when he met the Hun. And they were paying handsome tribute to tlieir comrades who were dls-ploylng this spirit. They Feel Mighty Fit, 'When it was over, when one oC tliu contestants had gone down for the count and was up again, they-the dougliboys-broke looae again with another reign of pandemonium when the two heavies shook hands in the ring. They felt migiity fit that night -all of them-fell mighty capable ot taking on the Huns and accoiinllug for them, too, which is the frame ot mind wo want them in. For thy had had the old fighting spirit shown tlieni, the righting spirit the Canadian officer had told me was one of the big and contributing factors to the success of the Canadian forces over-8ea�. It's a wonderful thing for our army that It is going in for this sort of fighting. It builds up spirit, morale and confidence. In shor'.-it makes for rigliting spirit. And it does not make for brutality. Ask your "inirson or priest who is In a cantoninont about this, if you don't believe me' The chances are 10 to 1 that he had n ring side seat. He knows. He's going to see life stripped of its Sunday clothes -as ho has never seen Mfo before. And he's enjoying the lexperience and finds that It's a pretty good life after all. He-your parson, priest or rabbi- will tell you that our dougliboya look at this ring fighting in llio real llghl. That it not only helps make fighting men out of tlium, but tliut thoy also set a pile ot fun out J'�lt; that It teaches them to ggiUtf-' wheu the H�loW8 are tUlckent, -. . .. Probably ono of the finest types of the .lew fighter to-day is Phil Harrison, produced by that wonderful melllng pot the West Side of ChicOgo a district genei'ally kiiown as the Ghetto. Fifteen years ago, harlteniiig back to the time glove fighting flourished j in Chicago, a lot of pretty tough birds eaine from that section. It was not uncommon to see thoni in the arena run by ^'ate Lewis and .lolinny .Mcluei'ny, who formed an organization known as the Conneinara Cuckoos. They ciinie out in droves lo fight and watch. The riugsters wore a real cosmopolitan gHthcring, the crowd tlie utmost in an all-national festival. We had the Forbes boys, the Kid .\bels, the Kid Farmer.s"and Joe and .lack Galligaii. Italian boys despite their monickers. Perhaps the real gladiator ot them all was Kid Herman, a Jew boy they were all crazy about. There wasn't a cigar �tore, saloon or poolroom that didn't have his photograph prominently displayed. .\o\v comes Phil Harrison ttirougli the lapse ot these years as the nearest approach to this idol. Harrison the junkman, the popular id(^ of the big West Side, whose followers will go any place to see him mill. When Phil says ho is ready and sends out the ^vord they bet on him and never stop belting. Their faitii is unbounded. They care nothing for the stories of the opposition that the foe has a crushing left hook or a right uppercut aud cross that spells defeat when landed. When Phil starts that is all there is'to it, they believe. N IRISH SIMIION (CONTINITED FROU FbONT PaOI) Succeeding Major B. A.

"If thin should prove to bo the cablnet'.s Intention there will of course, be vigorous protests but It Is recognized frankly hero that the iilca of national necessity would not be dlt-ficuli to urge in Britain and possibly even in America, under the present critical conditions. It is very doubtful whether the Sinn l''ciners laid their lilaiis lo cope willi such nssumption, as those arrested now have to face, I believe the Sinn Felners arc suffering very badly from swelled heads vhich brought about a singular degree of ovnr-contidence.
