The bigger the crowd, the Oner the clothes, th^pnore definitely Is each Individual woman pitted against bet neighbors. At this stage. I've got to qualify my remarke. When I say s woman's meeting. I mean a purely social meeting or a purely so ­ cial meeting with the varnish of some cultural Interest to coat It over. I don't mean a meeting of a group of women working In an intelligent way foN^ome definite constructive purpoee, and quite abeorbeo In something beyond themselves. I mean a meeting where the purpose of the gathering is for thr group to enjoy themselvra It would be nice to measure the quantity of actual solid pleasure women get out of their formal social functions On the other hand. If men ought to come once In a while to the gatherings of women, to see how and why they enjoy them ­ selves. so should women patronise the men's affairs. I don't mean on Ladies' Night. 1 mean on an average ordinary night when no banners have been hung up and no orcheetra ordered. There's one men meeting place open to every woman almost any night — certainly any night when the men are there. That ’ s the prise fight. Two generations ago a born lady would have swooned If thi word were mentioned In her presence; a generation ago She might have been chagrined and embarrassed, hut the world had arrived then at the place where the vices of the male if the species hsd been heard of by the female- I mean, the refined feminine- Now adays. It's entirely all right to talk about prise fights. • Thank goodness. It's all right to do more than talk about them We can actually go to them. For her who would loaf and Invite her soul, relax, drink deep of content, let me prescribe a prise fight. Into the round glare of that bright light, fioated the drifts of bluish cigar and cigarette smoke, over the heads of that vast mob broke and receded the customary ring-side noises-the cry of the hucksters, the w-ia«-craek» of the 'hoodlum In the top row. the occasional ringing oNtbe hell at the arena and. now and then, the steady rhythmic hand-clapping, accompanied by the pound ­ ing of thousands of feet, as the mob-gpim pervaded the Garden and a conventionalised pandemonium broke loose. any good The boxers were amateurs, of course, and nothing could be more completely descriptive of them than that single word They lacked the crackle and spar ­ kle, the spring and snap of professionals They were clumsy, uninspired, awkward, sometimes foolish The man In back of me. defrauded by one bout. sold, bitterly, of an Ineffectual boxer. “ Well, I hope that guy gets hlsself a Job keepln' books He shouldn't be In no man's game, takln ’ up my tima lookin' at him' Thm* was a tremendously loll young man.

The hoodlums in the top row had a great many bits of sage advice to olfer the pair — but they needed more than advice. They put on a good show but a terrible fight — until Just st the end of the third round, the black one suddenly rushed at the tall blonde one and evidently hit blm.hard some place or other.

TeJ. 6W5 C-D ELECTRIC CO ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR* I spoke recently about meeting a gentleman 88 yean of age, whom I had known for many year* and who appeared to be getting about any ­ where and everywhere he pleased. On mental and physical ability he attributed to ht% fondness for walking which, as 1 pointed out, en ­ abled him to use hla mental facul ­ ties as well as the physical. Just the other Sunday I met an ­ other gentleman whom I never even classed a* old. who happened to be walking In the same direction as As I caught up to him 1 remark ­ ed. “ Are you working of? your Sun ­ day dinner or are you getting an appetite for it?* Hla quiet remark was “ Neither, I'm simply out getting my dally supply of oxygen “ I've always tried to get out a part of every day.\ What waa the Idea behln# bis de ­ sire to get a supply of oxygen? Isn ’ t there oxygen Indoors? If there were r.o o*Vren. or IT the amount were low. wouldn't we live Just the same? Ye*, every home, every office, ev ­ ery factory has oxygen In the air, and the amount la usually sufficient to keep us alive because there are the doors, windows, and ventilating systems which permit a certain amount of fresh air. with lu goodly proportion or oxygen, to enter. Why then was It necessary for this chap lo get outdoors for his supply of oxygen' Because the air of a room con ­ tains a smaller percentage of oxy- than the outdoor air, and with folks breathing and rebreathing same air the perceatage geta Now It Is* the oxygen In the air that enables all the body processes work. As they work they used oxygen In which to burn, and U there Isn't sufficient oxygen than they do not burn completely. This means not only less or poor- r work done by the tissues, but material that could be of use Is thrown out of the body as waste, sometimes stored In the body as \lL This chap was It years of age, oked ten or fifteen years younger, ad as his work keeps him at hla p»k he geta outdoors a part of ev- ■y day to get the extra supply of xygen to enable hla processes to make a complete Job.
