UNCLE SAM HAS NO USE FOR
QUITTER IN RING OR TRENCH
Marine Who Shows White Feather in Boxing Match Incurs Displeasure of
Major Who Witnesses Fight.
BT HARRY B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 6. There Is
no room la any one of Uncle Sam's
subdivisions of the Army and Navy
for a quitter. So much was exempli
fied th other night on Mare Island,
and It goes not only for the marines,
but for soldiers and sailors aa well.
Eddie Marino, well known as a
Northwestern boxer, now a member of
the Marines and boxing instructor at
Mar Island, tells the story of. what
happened to a "slacker" in the boxing
ranks. Eddie was staging a four-round
ahow. One of the interested spectators
waa Major Small, one of the officers in
charge of th marines.
He saw a boxer, who was also a
marine and la a marine, quit cold.
Orctinarily that would end such a
matter. But not so with Major Small.
He sent for Marino.
"Did that boxer . quit?" he asked.
"Yes," asknowledged Marino. "That's
just what he did."
"Send him to me." was the response
from the Major. "I will see that he is
punished. We have no room In the
Marine Corps for quitters. Boys wl
hav to learn to stand the gaff whe
they are boxing, just the same as whe
they are fighting over there."
All the more power to Major Small
He has the right idea. If a boxer
doesn't make good as a boxer the
chances are mighty strong: that he will
not make good as a fighter for bis
country. And the place to check that
sort of thing is in this country, an
right where the boys are being trained
Other officers would do well to fol
low the course mapped out by thl
Major of marines. Boxing is partially
to clve our soldiers the lighting spirit.
And If they are going to show th
white feather for a gentle tap now and
then, the sooner we know it the better
we will be off.
W have had two Army boxing In
structors In our midst th i last week.
Both, as It happens, are members of
the Olympic Club. One is Willie Ritchie
former lightweight champion, who is
here from- Camp Lewis to attend to
some of his personal business affairs,
and the other la Bob McAllister, who
has been at home on a furlough from
Camp Funston. Tex.
From McAllister we learn that there
Is no chance for boxing instructors to
make the trip to France. McAllister
was anxious to make the trip, but was
advised by Dr. Raycroft that It could
not be arranged. The boxing teacnera
are going to be needed in the canton
ments to whip the new soldier lads into
shape. And there will beMlttle occa
sion when the men reach France for
boxing lessons, for there will be plenty
to entertain the lads who are delving
In the trenches or stopping Oerman
When McAllister found that he could
not set across the Atlantic he tried
to arrange It to be ordered to Camp
Fremont. But once more he ran up
against a snag-. Unless there are good
and aufflctent reasons for a change it
Is not the plan to switch the boxing
tutors.. and particularly they will not
be tranaferred ao as to be close at
Some of the Eastern papers talked of
McAllister signing for a match with
Jack Dempeey. But McAllister says
there Is nothing to the talk, and that
he intends to stick by his Army work
until such time aa the United States
does not further require his services.
Willie Ritchie brings the news that
he may box Packy McFarland In an
Oakland ring. The bout of course
would be to raise funds for soldier
sporting equipment, such as gloves and
the like, or for the Red Cross. Before
he came home Ritchie was asked by
wtr whether he would assist Oakland
in arransing for a big bout In the event
of McFarland agreeing. And Ritchie
la willing- to do his share if It flu In
with the wishes of his superior officers
at Camp Lewis.
He told the -writer that it Is alto
gether np to the commanding General,
and that he will be glad to go on
through with tb scheme if everything
It would certainly be a big drawing
card. Neither of the boys is an old
man and both of them ought to be fair
ly fit in consequence of the work they
hav son through. They could easily
pack the Oakland Auditorium and It
would mean many a dollar for the good
of the service.
So far w San Franciscans haven't
become very excited over the pros
pects of a Fulton-WUlard match. In
deed, ever since they took away long
distance fights from us we hav re
fused to take the fight game seriously.
Spider Kelly, who never missed a
heavyweight championship, wllL of
course, be on hand. Jack Welsh, who
refereed the Wlllard-Johnson match, is
still another who' avers that he will be
a spectator, whether officially so or
But outside of these two dyed-ln-the-wool
fans and perhaps a half dozen
others who may crop up. we are not
going to be stirred to any great
depths. So far there is no fanning on
the subject. But possibly that will

Welcome Gifts Received by Library
at Camp Kearny.
CAMP KEARNEY, San Diego, Cal.,
April 6. A large number of scrap
books, embracing a wide variety of
subjects in pictures, rhyme and brief
story, have been received at the Camp
Kearny library for distribution among
patients at the base hospital who are
too weak for the mental exertion of
reading long stories or books.
The books are the contribution of a
Chicago newspaper and a number of
Chicago citizens. Some of them, though
made of clippings from magazines and
newspapers, are beautiful.
