Andrews. The fact is Tommy Gibbons has no right to the -championship, he never won it, and has only PUt a claim recently, 'which' claim is not justified. Mike. O'Dowd was fortunate in knocking out Al McCoy, who was looked upon by raaiiy as a Joke champicm. but whom a number ot writers did recognize as title bolder, although he liad no good claim to the same. He Merely clatmud it as others did and ^ot away with it in  the eyee of �ome. However, there were so many arguments regarding the titleholder o� that class that the fans became disgusted; but when O'Dowd finally did .put a stop to McCoy by knoching him But, why. they were ready to accept him as champion. Previous to this Harry Greb of i Pittsburg bad put in a claim for the title which had been in .ibeyance for a long time, and he posted a forfeit to go as a side bet for a match with -Mike Gibbdps or any other one claiming the championship. The for-=felt was for fl.OOO. McCoy declined a match and so did Gltbons. with the result that Greb went through with his claim. After O'Dowd had won over McCoy he was matched with Greb al St. Paul, and there were different claims as to the winner. Mike has offered to meet any man in the world at ioS pounds at 3 o'clock, Mike Gibbons preferred, but no matcli was made. Now Mike is in the army and unable to defend his title at the beck and call ot any of.the middleweights, but ha will do so when the opportunity is given him by the authorities. In the meantime let Tommy Gibbons. Jeff Smith and Harry Greb tight it out for the right to meet O'Dowd, and that will keep them busy until such time as O'Dowd can arrange a meeting. Greb and 'Al McCoy are to have if out on May 13 at Cincinnati when they dash In a 12-round battle. Greb is most anxious to meet either Tomm}'' Gibbons or Kddle -McGoorty. BASEBA RESULTS AMERICAN Won.

It seems to be a case of electing a man first and then creating the fllce he Is to till as a sort of second thought, something' that makes it rather contusing aund embarrassing to the man upon whom the mantle is to fall. And Malty has asked some details b to what the call is before he/decides to accept it. Gives Indefinite Assignment. The thing seems to come through the 'V.M.C.A. that operates behind the lines in France for the well being of the soldier Apiritually and physically, promotion of baseball and other rthletici being part of the physical . improvement program. The man described as being in charge of Y.M.C. A. activities cables Malty that he has been elected to "-.levelop the game on the western front," certainly an in- definite assignment, and certainly not put in a way that would appeal to a man who, by virtue of having the qualiiicat(ons required, naturally would first want, to know what is required. Do the million men who are playing more or less baseball behind the lines in France, as occasion permit!, want a rnan to teach inside tricks of the game on the diamond or � to coach pitchers? Do they want a man to scout through a thousand company or regimental teams and select an all-star aggregation that shall be recognized as the army's cream of \talent? Do they jKini an executive who shall be a sort ot a league president or the general head ot a hundred possible leagues? What do they want anyway? Mattie Seeks Information. Matty, great as have been his ac-compliBbments as a pitcher, great as may be his potentialities as a manager, great aa may be his personality, might be the one man for the job In some parts, and he might not be for some other part's. At least he has a right to know-and has inquired- just what parts ot the general conglomeration of possibilities he ie supposed to fit into.  There are great ppsslbilities in the development of baseball as a recreation and as an exercise amonA a million men wlio have a good deal ot time on their hands to devote to it. Since there are bucJi great possibilities the firat thought that comes to ua is that if Is ho offhand matter, this attempt to select the one man who is to lead that development. It might be suggested that the well-meaning 'V.-M.C.A., which seems to have extended the call to Matty, could have arranged a conference with those who have had something to do with baseball development and organization and thus secured a few ideafl on what really is the best plan tor. directing and developing this new factor in baseball.-Sporting News, 1^ ^% The Tube, Too, Is Important M(CHELIN RED TUBES ARE CURVED JO FIT THE CASINO.

It is certain that he could . spot Wilbert Uoblnsbn to a player or, so and stagger 'along in some fashion. That is. It is certain. It early spring records have anything to do With playing strength for the Giants were tearing holes In the whole National league for a time. Ebbets Loses Player*. Ebbets lost player after player when the boards began to call. There was. Infielder Ward, Pitchers Cadore, Smith and Pfeffer, and other lesser lights who would have been used to plug up gaping holes in the club. In addition to this, Al Mamaux probably will be taken from the Dodgers when the next call is made for men. Mamaux is far from through and his loss would be keenly felt. Jimmy Hickman, outfielder, also Is a lA player and he expects to be called into service before the summer is over. Magnates evidently are slipping a cog in not realizing tho .straits to which their brothers are, being put. The call for assistance Is out and will be hanging out until something is done. Minor leaguers had just n� well brace themselves tor wholesale raids on their players.
