Bombardier Wells Knocked Out
Again Kilbane Matched.
When Bombardier Wells, the En
glish heavyweight, was polished off
in quick fashion in New York by Al
Palzer and Gunboat Smithexperts at
the ringside decided the Briton had
a "glass" jaw. As soon as he was
walloped in the face he caved in.
George Carpenter, the French bat
tler, yesterday discovered the En
glishman also had a "glass" stomach
no jokes ahout Wells having a
"pane" in his stomach.
It took the Frenchman four rounds
to put Wells away and the fight was
almost a duplicate of that between
Bombardier and Palzer in New York.
In the first round Wells floored Car
penter for the count of nine and fol
lowed this in the second by slapping
him to the 'floor, again.
In a twinkling the advantage shift
ed in the third found and Carpenter
chased his opponent all around the
square, quickly putting him In dis
tress with some smashing blows to
the stomach. Wells was weak in the
fourth and a right and left to the
stomach finished him.
This fight certainly proves Wells
to be no classy fighter. When he
fought Palzer he-was'outweighed and
Smith also had an advantage in
poundage. This furnished an alibi
for the Englishman. But there was
no such excuse yesterday. Heis
taller than Carpenter and also had I
' the edge In weight.
On the strength of the victory Car
penter is claiming the heavyweight
championship of Europe. Bill Papke
holds a decision over him.
Ad Wolgast, former lightweight
champion, has begun training for his
fight with Johhny Dundee in Los An
geles June 10.
Jimmy Walsh of Boston, and John
ny Kilbane, featherweight champion,

For the first time, since Jiggs Dono
hue outlived his usefulness the White
Sox have a first" baseman who
shouldn't be playing in a minor
We mean Hal Chase, the well
known Californian, who comes to the
South Side in exchange for Rollie
Zeider and Babe Borton,
Chase has not been playing a bang
up game in New York. Apparently
he is dissatisfied with his surround
ings in the big town and is not put
ting forth his best efforts. That is
no reflection on Chase's heart. In
any walk of life a man does not do
good work unless his environment is
pleasant. This is especially true in.
Certainly Chasa has several good,
years of playing left In him. He will
bolster up that Sox infield at. its
weakest point and make it one of
the strongest defensive combinations
in the country. His batting also wilt
be a big ielp., So far this year hi
