Law May Prevent

' ' (AssaaalrJ Press Rsfert.)
KANSAS CITY. Mo. Jan. 10. Mayor
George H. Edwards today received a tel
egram from the chief of staff at Camp
Vunston asking him whether or not he
desired that the boxing and . wrestling
tournament arranged for January Ja and
M between Camp Flinston and Camp
podge be held here. The Ministerial al-
liance has protested against the tourna-
ment. saying that local promoters were to
et one-third of the proceeds and that a
boxing exhibition with an admission
charge would be a vlolaUou of the law.
"If the law permits a boxing exhibition
I am heartily in favor of it" Mayor Ed-
wards said. However it must be a box-
ing exhibition and pot a prise fight. I
believe public opinion favors such an ex-
hibition as has been planned."
Mayor Edwards is seeking information
en the legal phase of the matter.
