Coulon and Williams to Fight on
Coast Klaus to Cross Sea.
Bresnafian Trade Sounds Like Bunk
Sox Fail in Pinch.
The proposed Baltimore fight for
the bantamweight championship be
tween Johnny Coulon, the Logan
Square title holder, and Kid Williams,
a native of the Maryland cityfnd
which Coulon canceled because the
promoters demanded a Baltimore
referee, will be transferred to the
This announcement was made by
Promoter Tom McGarey of Los An
geles, the two midgets having signed
to battle twenty rounds at the Vernon
arena July 29. Apparently every
thing is all arranged, and the fight
will go through, but we will be pessi
mistic until the two mittmen actually
climb through the ropes.
Paper fights between Coulon and
Williams have been arranged often.
We only know Qf one that was
The public is getting tired of cham
pions who defend their titles once a
year, putting in the rest of the time
giving uninteresting monologues on
the stage, Willie Ritchie, Johnny Kil
bane and Coulon keep their titles put
away in moth balls. Coulon has a
reasonable excuse, as he was too ill
to defend his crown until recently.
Now he is all right, and we want to
see him fight. We think Coulon can
beat WilHams an( "want him to do it.
Frank Klaus, the Pittsburgh mid
dleweight, is the latest American bat
tler with aspirations to invade Aus
tralia in search of coin. If Prank car
ries out his intentions it is probable
he will first take on either Eddie Mc
Goorty or Mike Gibbons before some
New York club. Klaus figures on a
few battles in Australia, trad then will
jump to Prance for another bout with
George Carpentier, who has just
signed for a return engagement with

Hearken to ub, when the Qubs can
crowd a whole season's batting Into
one afternoon, and get thirteen hits
off Nap Rucker of Brooklyn in eight
rounds, we don't know anything
about baseball at all. Gan the dope
and burn the record books.
Even such well-known lefthanded
batters as Evers, Bridwell and Saier
took a hand in peBtling Nap. John
lashed a double, Al took two singles
and Vic duplicated the shortstop's
work. Sohulte was the only hiQess
guy, and everyone else but Zim and
Humphries bagged two hits.
It was a rout and Rucker was
lucky to get by with only six runs
scored. Mitchell and. Archer took a
particular fancy to his slow ball and
each tore loose a triple and single.
The latest .rumor from the dream
factory is that Roger Bresnaban is
to be traded to Brooklyn for Rucker,
