To the E d i t o r o f F e l i x . Dear S i r , I am w r i t i n g t h i s l e t t e r t o appeal f o r support f o r the I.C. Boxing Club, whose numbers have now reached the lowest ebb. I n the p a s t t h i s c o l l e g e has had v e r y s t r o n g and good boxing teams, and i n the l a s t few y e a r s i t has c o n s t a n t l y been winners o r runners-up i n the U.A.U. Boxing Championships, and many o f our members have boxed f o r the U n i v e r s i t y . I should l i k e t o t h i n k t h a t students o f t h i s c o l l e g e are- not l a c k i n g i n the courage undoubta b l y necessary t o box; a l t h o u g h from the support r e c e i v e d t h i s seems t o be the reason. I t i s not my w i s h t o f o r c e the Boxing Club upon you i f you iiave no i n t e r e s t whatsoever i n i t , but I do appeal to those who have even a s l i g h t i n c l i n a t i o n f o r bo-cing t o get i n touch v d t h ne soon. Thank you v e r y much, Fred C a r r . C a p t a i n Boxing Club.
