Just Punching The Bag
Moran Fighls His Hardest Fight To-morrow
By W. O. McGeehan
Charles Francis Moran, the Pittsburgher with the cerise hair, gets his
last chance to emerge from the pugilistic scrap heap to-morrow night at
the Newark Sportsmen's Club. If he should replaster the Plastered
Plasterer, Pred Fulton, Moran will have another lease of life in the pugil?
istic big money. If he is dropped by Fulton, then Moran fades out of the
picture for keeps.
Moran always has been a popular fighter, because of his winning per
sonality and his unquestioned courage. Moreover, there never has been a
blemish on his ring record. He always gave the best he had and he never
was mixed in what the students of the Qiieensberry art would call "one of
those thing." And he never squawked when he lost.
It is because Charles Francis has played the 'gamc fairly that he ig
given the chance to come back and will have all the good wishes of the
fans when he closes with the Plastered Plasterer to-morrow night. If tho
good wishes of the boxing galleries produced speed and a wallop, Charles
Francis would be the speediest and hardest hitting heavy in the world, but
in the ring the good wishes and that sort of thing get one nothing. They
will not blo**-*- * fast '?-ie.
Moran gave Jack Johnson and Jesse Willard a pair of hard battles
when these two were at their best. Then the Pittsburgher became care
less about his training. When he lost to little Jack Dillon Moran was the
slowest and flabbiest looking gladiator that ever floundered around a ring
Prosperity made him soft. But Charles Francis deelares stoutly that he
has learned the bitter lesson. It remains to be seen whether or not he has
learned it too late. That will develop to-morrow night.
Frank Moran will be fighting more than Fulton to-morrow night. He
will be battling against ring tradition, and that sort of fight la'.. 3 a little
more than ordinary ring courage. Moran has the courage, unquestion
ably. What remains to be seen is whether or not he has the physique to
back it.
? 'Eddie Fitzsimmons Bobs Up
Dumb Dan Morgan breaks his characteristic silence now and then
c^iSST6 that EddiC Fitzsimmons? wh? is ?nder his management, is
SOME fighter. The latest accomplishment of Edward?the flattening of
iTi1 P^8y Cline?is o^red in evidence. Dumb Daniel wants to sec what
Lddie Fitzsimmons can do to Champion Benny Leonard, or vice versa
The trouble with Fitzsimmons is that he is said to be one of those
139-pound lightweights, and Leonard, who can make 135 when he wants
to. could duck him if he cared to on those grounds. Irish Patsy Cline was
a contemporaneous battler with Leonard, and used to hold him on fairly
even terms in the old days. But Leonard passed him finally, and passed
all the lightweights. Still the sentiment is growing that a battle between
Leonard and Fitzsimmons might bring about a lot of action, and many
believe that Fitzsimmons might make the champion extend himself None
?t the other lightweights seem able to do that.
A Big Chompionship Bout
One of the editorial writers suggests that Maurice Maeterlinck might
make some real money if he doubled with Jack Dempsey and did a
sparrmg act over some live vaudeville circuit. It is not a bad idea but it
might be expanded. *
Belgium is not the only country that has a boxing literary man
England has George Bernard Shaw, who is one of the greatest boxinc
authorities in the world. Some promoter, Mr. Cochrane, for instance
might match Shaw and Materlinck for the boxing and literary chammon
ship of Europe.
Naturally, this would start the United States on a search for a
champion in the boxing and literary division. I think I know the American
White Hope for this divison. He is Irvin Cobb, the Paducah Pounder I
saw him doing his road work in Canada last year, afrd he displayed form
that guarantees he will take the champion of Europe in about one round
whether it happens to be George Bernard Shaw, tho British Bearcat or
Maurice Materlinck, the Belgian Bruiser. '

lengths in front of Hamilton A.
Lenora P. had a close call in the
first race, but managed to win by a
neck from Donatello, with Superior

Boston Already Reconciled
To Sale ofRuth to Yanke&t
Wrath of Hub Fans SLort
Lived Says Frazee; To
Use Money #for Players
By WTTTMa^beth
Battling Harry Frazee, local impre
sario and owner of the Red Sox, ar?
rived from Boston yesterday, whither
he went last Sunday to make a sensa
tional announcement. If Frazee was
cut up' at all about'parting with Babe
Ruth these tender respects of the fans
no longer show. The Breeze Kid
scarcely looks like a man just out of
"Oh, I got better than a Mexican
stand-orT," chortled Frazee in greeting
to Ed Barrow, manager of his team.
"In a Mexican stand-orT you lose your
money but save your life. My life
seems safe enough now?even in Bos
tOn?and I haven't had to spend quite
all the money squaring myself for the
sale of Babe.
"Really," continued Frazee, more
seriously, "the fans of Boston took the
sale much better than I thought they
would. Boston is the greatest baseball
city in the country. The fans there
are greater students of the game than
anywhere else. They appreciated the
fact that Ruth was not treating me
fairly in his demands for double salary
in spite of an unexpired contract. I
gambled with Babe a year ago and they
figured he either should have returned
the courtesy or else aired whatever ob
jections he might have entertained
"The majority of the Boston press
seem reconciled. Of course, Ruth was
a great idol over there and his career
with the Yankees will be closely fol?
lowed from the Hub. He comes to New
York with every good wish on my part.
I told the Bostton public frankly that,
aside from any prospective trouble that
might have been storing up for me I
had accepted a cash proposition from
Colonels Ruppert and Huston that no
owner outside of New York City could
afford to refuse even for a player of
Ruth's gate value.
"Even at the price it is doubtful if
I should have transferred Ruth's serv?
ice otherwise but New York. You
see, I shall still retain no small in
terest in him. Remember that we will
play eleven games in New York next
season and the Yankees will play eleven
games at Fenway Park. This means
a personal interest in twenty-two
games, in which I hope Ruth takes part,
in the two best cities of the major
Frazee was rather mum on baseball
aside from the Ruth deal. He declared
?most emphatically, however, that he
meant every word of assurance to the
Boston fans that he would use the
money eecured from the sale of Ruth
to bolster up the Red Sox.
"It would be foolish not to do so,"
he said. "I control one of the very
best rranchises in the American League,
and it is only policy for me to wish
to present a sfrong pennant factor to
the fans next spring. I realize that
cnticism on the Ruth deal next sum?
mer will be reflected directly according
to the team's success. If we maintain
a fine place in the first flight and im
prove last season's showing the well
wishers of the club will forgive and
forget Ruth's departure as they forgot
the sale of Tris Speaker in the light of
the Red Sox triumph of 1918."
Frazee would.neither afflrm or deny
