AMERICAN BOXERS ARE DESERTING SNOWY BAKER Australian Promoter -Experiencing Difficulty in Keeping Talent New ently Australia is losing its attractive- ness for American boxers, judging by the way the wanderers are flocking home'ward. The middleweights ia particular are deserting the land of the kangaroo at a rate that la giving' Promoter Snowy Baker cause for worry. Ever since Baker organized the chain of clubs in ail the big cities of Australia he 'has relied upon American talent to supply matches. Now that the stars are leaving, the boxing boom in that country is in danger of collaps- ing. Baker has just formulated a rule ]_whereby. any visiting boxer who has resided in the country for one year i rendered eligible to compete for th championship of Australia! By thi means he hopes to keep a supply c talent on hand without to th i expense o.t importing new "men fo (every inatch. in fifteen parts, two of which will be shown every week. .In addition to the afcovs, some 'comedy features have been arranged for, and as they coin direct from one of the Calgary thea tres, their attractiveness can b vouched for.
