Bud Anderson Wants o Be Real
Farmer Come to Illinois.
Failure to Bunt and Bum Thought
Beats Cubs 'Rah! Russell! 'Rah!
Speaking of boxing, this is a good
time to talk about fanning and other
forms of hard work. Several pugil
istic gentlemen in Chicago, and oth
ers who manage these fighters with
the aid of a foghorn voice and a
high-geared typewriter, will either
have to buy railroad tickets reading,
"From Chicago to " or else hire
out in the corner grocery.
It is now certain that the boxing
bill has no chance of being revived
at this session of the state Legisla
ture. Therefore, the gloom around
If Bud Anderson, the Oregon light
weight, who meets Leach Cross July
4 on the coast, was an inmate of our
burg he would not worry over the
closed season on the mitt artistry.
Bud wants to be a farmer. Several
prize fighters don't want to be, but
Bud also says he is in boxing for
the money, thus immediately getting
into the championship class with
Willie Ritchie, Ad Wolgast and oth
ers, who fear a small "gate" more
than they do their opponent's fists.
"To be a successful farmer is my
ultimate dream," said Anderson re
cently. "Ever since my first fight I
have been saving my money toward
the establishing of a good paying
farm. I have a ranch near Vancou
ver, and when I get through with it
you can bet it will be the prettiest in
Washington. I do most of my train
ing on the ranch, and if toy manager
didn't insist would never enter a
gym. When I win the championship
I will stay in the ring only a short
time and then retire to the cows."

For several seasons President Mur
phy of the Cubs has been threatening
to build a concrete stand on the West
Side to replace the present shacks
that blot the landscape. C. JVebb
has never gone through with the pro
ject Why, we can't understand. He has
plenty of concrete among his players
to build a good portion of the stadium
without unleashing any change to the
Portland cement sellers. Raw, very
raw material is plentiful on his pay
roll. For a cornerstone we would sugr
gest Tom Needham, w.ho used to be
a catcher, but who now puts in each
afternoon coaching on the third base
line. Tom almost had a thought
yesterday, and the result was disas
