McCarJy Easily Beats -FJynn-r-McGoorty
t Wins -SJow Fight.
Jim Plynn, fat and slpv,. was. de
cisively trimmed by, Champion. Luther
McCarty in six rounds at- Philadelphia
J last night. The Pueblo fireman was
no match for his tall opponent, and
at no time .in the fight made even a
showing. McCarty staggered him
with a dazzling succession of rights
and lefts, a right hook being his most
In a longer bout, even of ten
rounds, the fireman would have been
battered to the floor.." He timed his
. blows badly, lacked steam, and was
pitifully slow on his feet.
Eddie 'McGoorty," ten pounds over
the middleweight limit, ' outpointed
Freddie Hicks in a ten-round go at
Windsor, Ont., last-night. McGoorty
made good use of a left jab; but-missed
badly with his right. He was too
heavy for flashy footwork, and Hicks'
managed to keep away from danger.
From his appearance in the ring last
night, McGoorty will have "a hard
time making the middleweight limit
in the future.
It begins to look like -the doings
of the Illinois legislature should be
reported among the prize fight news-.
There are a lot of' gents down in:
Springfield who are great fighters
with their mouths and typewriters,
but who fall down when it comes to
getting into the ring. Just like the
. mitt artists.

dropped two,, the IWhite Sox landed
home thisjmoruing ready to start
the .season, on .the South Side.
. -Not a man on the squad is out of
condition; arid. Callahan declared he
was ehtirely satisfied with the class
shown by ms players. Both of the
games, lost would have been set down
in the win column with a, little luck,
the Sox -peirformihg" well, in each.
Ray'Schalk, 'the peppery young
catcher,- seems' to -be the one- cog
whicK -was needed ,to make the Sox
