f Billy Gibson, manager of the Gar-
J den Athletic club, to box Bombardier
I Welts, tho British heavyweight champion,

ager. James Maloney, gave out a stnte
mcnt today In which lie says that Wells,
mIng come here on the understanding
I that McCarty would bo willing1 to sign
If for a match, he, Maloney, will now agree
e to talto 55 per cent of the gross receipts
g and will guarantee McCarty 510,000 . In
R ash the moment ho steps Into the ring
K with Wells In Madison Square Garden,
k "Any sane person." says aialoney,
a 'knows that it Ib better to accept S10,
K 000 for a ten-round bout than for a
B twenty of twenty-flve-rouud bout, for
H there "is less chanco of defeat. For that
I reason, I cannot, see how McCarty can
cfuse thla offer to box the English cham
gi plon who was defeated last .year by Pal
jf " "If McCavly should be outpointed,' ac
b wording to the opinion of critics and In
J) the ahsenco of a decision In tho gardon,

II MISSOURI, TOO, WANTS
I RACING AND MUTUELS
sj By' International News Service
ft JEFFERSON' C1T1". Feb. 13. Missouri
today Joined the long list of states which
m seek to restore thoroughbred racing, but
Bl not bookmakers. The success of the
Ifl parl-mutucl machines and the racing
& commission in Kentucky inspired a bill
R 'ntroducc-d in the Missouri house today
y5 providing for a racing commlEslon.
aj In advocating the passage of the bill a
k pumlicr of country members pointed out
0 that since racing had been abolished, or,
F9 rather, since betting was prohibited
a which is equivalent to abolishing racing
IS the county and state fairs had attracted
E such small attendances that the gale
S receipts did not pay tho expunges. Many
a counties have decided to dispense wllh
a fairs, It Is tald, unless racing can be
j revived, as It is tho one sport which
K brings people to the fairs.
B St. Louis members, too, are tmxloiis to
I have metropolitan racing with the mutual
B naehlnes Instead of bookmakers. It la
I predirled that the hill will quickly become
ffl a law.
