BASEBALL BOXING RACING 1SPORTH HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Tommy Gibbons Has No Claim for Middleweight Championship TJ5o continued efforts of some to place Tommy brother of the noted Paul middleweight before the public as middleweight champion of this country or the is not fairvto his fellow Mike nor to Harry the Pittsburg says The fact is Tommy Gibbons no right to the he never won and has put a claim re which claim not ODowd was fortunate in knock ing out Al who was looked upon by many as a but whom a number of writers did recognize as title although he had no good claim to the He merely claimed it as did and gpt away with it In the eyes of there were so many arguments regarding the titletiolder ot that class that the fans dis gusted but when ODowd did stop McCoy by knocking him they were ready to accept him as Previous to this Harry Greb of i Pittsburg had in a claim for the title which had been in abeyance for a long and he posted a forfeit to go as a side bet for a match with Mike Gibbvs or any other one claiming the The for was for McCoy declined a match and so did with the result that Greb went through with his ODowd had won over McCoy he was matched with Greb at and there were dif ferent claims as to the Mike has offered to meet any man in the world at 158 pounds at 3 Mike Gibbons but no match was Now Mike Is in the army and un able to defend his title at the beck and call of any of but he will do so when the opportun ity is given him by the In the meantime let Tommy Gib Smith and Harry Greb fight it but tor the right to meet and that will keep them busy until such time asODowd can arrange a Grab and Al McCoy are to have it out on May 13 atr Cincinnati when they in a 12round Greb is most anxious to meet either TommyGibbons or Eddie UlfH f CALL TO FRANCE PERPLEXES NMTIY By some sort of other or a referen how the expression of opinion was secured is not made clear in the American soldiers in of whom there are a million or have decided they want Christopher Mathew on to come over and take charge of their baseball and have Issued what the pro bably regards in the light of a j It is a great tribute to Mattys in and by that we mean the estimate the baseball pub Re uas ot him as that such call should come to but we rather fancy that It is more senti fine as may than that actuates the soldiers in their It seems to be a case of elect ing a man first and then creating the he is to fill as a sort of second something that makes It rather confusing annd embarrassing to the man upon whom the mantle is o And Matty has asked some details to what the eall is before he de cides to accept Gives Indefinite The fhing seems to come through the that operates behind the lines in France for the well being of the soldier spiritually and physic promotion of baseball and other being part of the physical Improvement The man de scribed as being in charge of activities cables Matty that he has been elected to develop the game on the western certainly an in The Is Important MICHCUN RCO TUBES ARE CURVED TO FIT THE definite and certainly not put in a way that would appeal to a man by virtue of having the qualifications naturally would first to know what is re Do the million men who are playing more or less baseball behind the lines in as occasion want a man to teach inside tricks of the game the diamond or to coach pitchers Do they want a man to scout through a thousand company or regi mental teams and select an allstar ag gregation that shall be recognized as the armys cream of Do they an executive who shall be a sort ot a league president or the general head of a hundred possible leagues What do they want anyway Mattle Seeks great as have his ac complishments as a great as may be bis potentialities as a man great as may be his might bethe one man for the job in some and he might not be for some other At least he has a right to has just what parts of the general conglo meration of possibilities he ia sup posed to fit There are great possibilities the development of baseball as a recrea tion and as an exercise among a mil lion men who have a good deal of time on their hands to devote to Since there are such great possibil ities the first thought that comes to us is that iv is no offhand this attempt to select the one man who is to lead that It might be suggested that the well meaning which seems to have extended the call to could have arranged a conference with those who have had something to do with baseball development and organization and thus secured a few ideae on what really is the best plan for directing and
