Johnny Couldh Makes Great Showing
J Luther McCarty Wins.
Johnny Coulon, leading citizen of
Logan Square and champion of the
bantamweight fighters, has not suf
fered any setbacks because of his
recent illness. He plainly showed this
last night in Windsor, Ont., when he
flopped Tommy Hudson of Detroit in
the fourth -round. The Michigan mid
get stayed down from a Tight cross
to the jaw. In the first three rounds
Coulon did not extend himself. He
was testing his strength, and when
he found his kick was not impaired
went out in the fourth and finished
his man. After one or two more
scraps Coulon will be ready to take
on Kid Williams of. Baltimore in a
twenty-round go for the title.
Luther McCarty did not brighten
his reeord last night by beating Prank
Moran in ten rounds at New York.
The heavyweight champion merely
outpointed the Pittsburgher, little
real fighting occurring in the en
counter. There was not a knock
down in the entire ten rbunds. Mc

wallop.

Cast yc;ur lamps upon. "Vic Saler,
boss first baseman of the Cubs, who
can talk in the national language of
Minnesota, but who thinks in base
ball terms.
This youngster he is only 21 is

league. He is'one of baseball's acci

bench at the start of the season,
Frank Chance making an effort to
come back and play regularly. When
