Reports from Chicago say that of 77
votes needed in the state House of Rep
resentatives to pass a boxing bill, 56

that In the Senate, where 27 votes are

before the lawmakers. One Is fostered
by Representative Epstein and one will
be introduced by Eddie Santry, the
former boxer, who was recently elected
to the Legislature.
Those behind the measure seek to
make boxing a legalized sport begin
ning July 1, 1915.
Contrary to the popular Idea, it was
not the women's vote that put the
rollers under boxing: in California,' ac
cording to a statement credited to
"Sunny Jim" Coffroth.
"It was the men's vote that put an
end to our great sport, men who used
religion and reform as political agents,"
Coffroth is quoted as having said
He asserted that the women of Cali
fornia are great admirers of athletes
and would not have voted the game out
alone, had it, been put up to them.
Coffroth avers that it was the result
of politics pure and simple and that
the majority of the voters merely rode

Tom Ratcliffe, manager of Frank
Kendall, the Portland heavyweight, who
will meet Jim Downing in a 10-round
encounter tonight at Boise, Idaho, says
th.e Portlander -will win.
"I can't refrain from predicting the
outcome of this fight," said Ratcliffe
yesterday in a letter to The Oregontan.
"I feel confident that Kendall will win.
I have never seen him in such good
shape as he is now. I have not yet
seen Downing work, but the folks here
abouts say he is a whirlwind. I look
for a hard fight, but we will stop Mr.
Downing if we can, and just as quickly
as we can.
"The high altitude has somewhat af
fected Kendall's wind, but I do not look
for any trouble on that score."
Ratcliffe also said that Kendall
weighed 192 pounds December 19.

Freddie figures that if McFarland
makes 136 pounds at 3 o'clock on the
afternoon of the contest, at 10 o'clock

five pounds more, while Freddie will
not take on any weight.
