PREPARE TO BID
ON STATE ROADS
A large number of road construc-
tion companies have had their rep-
resentatives at the state highway de-
partment the past week preparing to
submit their bids on the 39th street
road project, according to B. E. Clark
state highway commissioner.
Bids are to be received August 15,

The National Boxing association
has been slow in taking up the ques-
tion of championship matches under
its jurisdiction and also the creation
of new classes, but a beginning has
been made in both directions and
that is something worth while.
W. H. Liginger, president of the
National Boxing association, an-
nounces that efforts will be made to
bring about little matches where
hitches occur between the contract-
ing parties and clubs, and also that
the Junior welterweight title created
and fostered by Mike E. Collins of
Minneapolis has received official
recognition from the association.
"Recently Mr. Collins took up the
matter of creating a Junior welter-
weight class, similar to the junior
lightweight class, fixing the pound-
age at 140 pounds, weight in at 3
o'clock. His system of having the
boxing fans of the country vote on
the boxers best qualified to compete
for the new title was a good one and
received our sanction. Up to date. I
understand. Pinky Mitchell of Mil-
waukee. leads with a vote of 12,600,
with Eddie Fitzslmmons of New
York next, having 11,700. Then comes
Sid Barberian of Detroit, Jack
Josephs of Minneapolis, Harvey
Thorpe of Kansas City, Paul Doyle
of Boston. Bud Logan of Omaha.
Bobby Harper of Portland. Ore.. Dave
Shade, Morrie Shalaifer and others.
It is a good move and will do a
great deal to stimulate interest in
the game, which has been going so
fine the past year. I would suggest
that the final match for the title in
the new class be held in a city like
New Orleans, where the association
has one of it's chief officers—Rich-
ard Burke, secretary—and the dis-
tance can be 20 rounds to a decision.
"The proposed Criqui-Kilbane
match for the world's title should be
arranged. Crlqul has challenged In
a legitimate manner and is the real
European representative. Kilbane
owes it to his American followers to
defend his title now and the French
lad appears to be the correct man
for the match. New Orleans would
be an ideal place for the match, as
there are mostly French and Italians
there who would give splendid sup-
port to the little Frenchman. It
would no doubt draw a big crowd
there, too. as they have a tine open
air arena seating over 25,000 people
and could enlarge It If necessary.
The association was not formed for
the purpose of being arbitrary or
anything of that kind, but to help ttie
boxing game the same as the national
board has helped baseball, and the
A. A. U.i has helped athletics."
Some of the boxers being voted for
in the contest for the Junior welter
title are unable to make the required
140 poun Is. For instance. Dave
Shade cannot make it. neither cau
Billy Wells, Bud Logan and possibly
Frankie Schoeil. The class of the
lot looks to be Pinky Mitchell and
Eddie Fitzslmmons with Sid Barber-
ian close up. It looks as though
Pinky and Fitzslmmons will be the
pair to have it out for the champion-
ship, and that New Orleans will be
the location. It might be well to
have a few prelims to the final at
some of the cities where 10-round
bouts are held, but Mr. Collins favors
selecting the two with the greatest
number of votes and let them fight
it out. the winner to be declared the
champion and presented with a belt
emblematic of the crown.
After the class has been establish-
ed and a champion created, it would
be within the rights of the holder to
challenge for the Benior welterweight
title—held by the veteran, Jack Brit*
'Why Do We Say" |
CONK TO THE DOCS.
The above expression, nowadays
generally applied to men and women
who have reached the last stage in
the estimation of society, either
through misfortune or dissipation,
has its origin In the ancient custom
of throwing all table scraps either
on the floor pr Into the streets.
4n nearly every epic of the ancient
Greeks and Romans, we find a ref-
erence to the dogs that roamed
through the great dining halld and
were being fed from the table.
The same custom prevailed in
mediaeval times when the knights
would eat without knives or forks and
throw the remainder of their meal to
the hounds that slept under the
In the east, table scraps were
thrown from the windows into the
streets, and It is asserted that the
great packs of ownerless dogs that
wander through the highways and
bjways of Constantinople and other
eastern cities are the progeny of the
animals who fed on the refuse which

and voiced the compunction I had
felt ever since I had summoned Lil-
