ALL THE REAL SPORTING DOPE OF THE DAY
Tom McCarey, manager of the
Vernon fight club of California, is
planning an ambitious program
for the next few weeks. His lat
est addition is a planned match
between Johnny Coulon and Joe
Mandot, to take place some time
v in the spring. McCarey inti
mates he has almost completed
arrangements for the scrap. Jess
Willard and two other promising
heavies are possibilities for an
other elimination tournament to
find an opponent for Luther Mc
Carty. Sammy Trott and Bud
Anderson open the ball Saturday
night. This go will be followed
by Kid Williams of Baltimore,
and Eddie Campi of Frisco, Feb.
12. Joe Rivers and K. O. Brown
have the Washington, birthday
date, and the winner of the Cam-pi-Williams
bout will be sent
against Johnny Coulon in March
if the Chicago boy agrees. Mc
Carey is doing his best to restore
prize fighting by putting on real
matches.
The loud explosion tomorrow
will be Dan Morgan, manager of
Jack Britton, and Emil Thiry,
manager of Packey McFarland,
trying to arrange a match be
tween their boys. Neither man
ager can talk more than 200
words a minute.
Sheriff William Smith of Cleve
land is the real fox. Mayor
Baker ordered him to stop prize
fighting. Smith's first act was to
swear in Johnny Kilbane, feather
champ, as a deputy sheriff. Kil
bane pledged himself to help stop
boxing in the city.
Knockout Brown of Chicago
punished Billy Uvick so badly in
South Omaha that police stopped
the bout before the first round
was over. Uvick was down three
times.
According to reports from St.
Louis, Ed Konetchy, first base
man of the Cards, has demanded
such a large salary that the own
ers want to trade him to the
Cubs or Pirates. Konetchy is a
slugger, but is flat-footed at field
ing his position, and handles him
self like a wooden Indian around
the first corner. As long as the
Cubs have a young comer like
Vic Saier there is no place for
Konetchy.
President Murphy's statement
that the Cubs would pull a big
trade in a few days has started
the pipe artists puffing clouds of
dope. If a trade is pulled off, the
Cubs will add a pitcher or two to
their string, and the man will
come from the Phillies. Red
Dooin wants extra infielders and
outfielders, and the Cubs are well
supplied with both "brands. In
exchange he is willing to let go
of Earl Moore, and possibly Ad
Brennan. Brennan is a south
paw, and would fit in nicely on
the West Side. Moore is an emo
tional gent, and won't pitch un
less his surroundings are pleas
ant. He is dissatisfied in Philly,
and has wanted to get away for
two years. Some of the material
Murphy secured from Cincinnati,
as well as Tom Leach and Jim
Sheckard, can be used for trading
purposes.
