TORONTO. Ont.. Oct. 15.
AP) Thomas E. Donahue, pres
ident of the National Boxing asso
ciation, endorsed the effects of
the federal law taxing admissions
of $5 and up 25 per cent, scored
fistic champions who do not
choose to defend their titles, and
demanded for the association a
handin the crowning of the next,
heavyweight champion in his re
port to delegates from 26 states
and several foreign countries
gathered" here today for the an
nual N. B. A. convention.
After pointing out the increase
in power and authority of the as
sociation during the past year,
President Donohue discussed Ihe
status of boxing through the coun
try and analyzed situations in
classes where the association is at
variance with the New York state
Athletic association as to division
"While it is unquestionable
that the federal tax of 2 5 per
cent on boxing admissions of $5
and over is unfair and decidedly
class legislation in direct con
tradiction to the constitution of
tho I'nited States, the effect. I be
lieve, will be a wholesome one,"
President Donohue predicted
that the next heavyweight cham
pion will develop from the un
knowns of today and will not
come to the forefront for at least
three years. No one tournament
among a few boxers chosen by on
promoter will produce the man.
Promoters should stage as many
tournaments as possible, forget
ting that the public demands an
immediate successor to the retir
ed Gene Tunney.

N one of the outstanding inter-
sectional grid battles between
the east and west, Syracuse will
play Nebraska at Lincoln on Sat
urday. Captain Harold Bayslnger,
rated by coaches from various sec
tions of the country as one of the
best players of last season, will
lead his warriors across the corn
fields of the middle west and
tackle the Nebraskans right in
their own back yard.
In the struggle last year, de
spite the fact that the team from
the east was badly outclassed, the
work of Harold Baysinger stood
out like a skyscraper in a swamp
and at the close of the game some
37,000 rooters and most of them
were Nebraskans stood up and
gave him an ovation which lasted
for several minutes. It wag the
noisiest and most sincere tribute
ever paid to a visiting gridironer
in the history of the Memorial
stadum. Nebraskans are like that
