paign. Ad Wolgast and Harlem Tommy
Murphy began- their last- week of
training, today, preparatory to their
fight next Saturday in San Francisco.
Boxing is the main work of both men.
Wolgast is improving his wind, and
Murphy is the same rugged Irishman
who gave Wolgast a fierce battle a
few months ago. The Harlemite is
not taking any -chances in his con
