Al. Reich and "Knock-out" Brown have been accepted for military service m America. Jim Corbett's effort at "doing his bit" m America is an offer to teach "Uncle Sammies" how to box. One "Marty" Farrell is the latest middle-weight hope of America. He has been reckoned as the nearest thing to Mike Gibbon. ' Now that the strike is over m Sydney, we can look forward to more regular news, and the possibility of the cracks getting busy again. Greymouth has all the luck. Denny Murphy and Frank Gi%ffen meet there on October 27 for the middle-weight championship of New Zealand. Tommy Gibbons (Mike Gibbons's little brother) put it all over George Chip m a 10-round go at St. Paul, Minn., towards the end of last August. Says a 'Frisco writer: Usually, when a minister gets into a fight with a pugilist, the minister wins — according to the newspapers. But there's one minister, named Fred "Wedge, at Antigo, Wls,, who became involved m a street fight with a ham-and-egger, known as "Fighting Leach," and was being decisively outpointed when the police answered his calls for help. Al. LintJwaU, writing from Huntly, says he can make list. 61b., and if given eight weeks' notice will be prepared to meet the winner of the Murphy-Grlffen match,. Lindwall says, '?I am pleased to know that th,a game Is b.eing revived on the coast; Griff eh seems to b,e the makings of a good lad." Incidentally, Lindwall Bends along a photograph of himself taken while sparring with a com- ' panlon on the banks ,qf the Walkato. Lindwall Is a Sydney boxer of some note, who came over from New South Wales on a health-recruiting mission, and liked the place so much that he remained here. He bears good credentials, and the possibility of him being matched with the winner of the Murphy-Griffen bout should, appeal tp any Assqciatiqri which is alive.
