Has Anybody Seen McFarland?
Dillon to Fight Caponi.
Where is Packey McFarland? The
South Side Irishman has dropped out
of the limelight and has not picked up
any soft change in the ring for sev
We foregathered with a gent last
night who is a great friend of the
flashy lightweight This authority on
McFarland is somewhat of a re
former, but he is human enough to
like the boxing game. We asked him
where McFarland was. He said
Packey usually rested during the
And then he started in to tell what
a wonderful fighter the stockyards
lad was, is and always will be. He
was a real booster for his champion.
According to his dope, Packey could
have licked any of the present crop
when he was able to make the light
weight limit, and he added that Bat
Nelson, when he held the title, was
afraid of the Chicagoan.
There isn't much dope to all this,
but it may cause Packey to discover
himself and also may get a rise out
of Nelson. Bat has not performed on
the type machine for some time.
Patsy Callaghan, the Philadelphia
lightweight, gained a decision over
Gene Demont in six rounds in the
Quaker City last night- JCallaghan
used his deadly short punch with tell
ing effect, and nearly had the New
Orleans boy on the floor.
Jack Dillon, Jeading claimant of the
middleweight title, has been matched
to travel twelve rounds in Winnipeg
June 16 with Tony Caponi, the local
Italian. l5iDon outfought Frank
Klaus last week and has more base
for his title claim than the majority
of the would-be champs- Caponi wjll
be lucky to escape a sound licking.

Why do they put so much salt on
the free lunch in the bungalows of
The answer to that question is ob
vious. But who'll hep us to this puz
zler? Why did they let some of the Cubs
escape from Muscatine, Iowa?
Muscatine, understand, is some
button manufacturing town, and
bone and ivory furnish the raw ma
terial And the Cubs were certainly
"raw" enough In their game with the
Central Leaguers yesterday. Also
there was plenty of bone.
Jimmy Lavender was the boniest
guy. A drive slapped him in the f ace,
but Jim's jaw was impervious, and
the only Injury was a split lip. As a.
pitcher, Lavender did not shine. He
was no better against the minor
leaguers than he has been, against
the clubs in the National circuit.
True, some punk fielding put Laven
der in two bad holes, but he did not
have the puzzle stuff when in a pinch.
