BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE BASEBALL
Williams Trims Ledoux, French
Bantam Dundee vs. Welsh.
Kid Wiliams of Baltimore set at
rest all question as to his ability last
night by stopping Charlie Ledoux, the
French bantam, in the fifteenth
round at Los Angeles.
The referee halted the bout be
cause of the terrific punishment the
Baltimore lad had meted out to the
foreigner. Ledoux wa's battered in
every round after the third and was
helpless from the middle of the
twelfth until the bout was stopped.
After the bout the referee declared
he feared Ledoux might be fatally
hurt by the battering he was receiv
ing. After reading this Johnny Coulon
may decide that Williams is bad
medicine to tackle. The Logan
Square midget recently canceled his
contemplated fight with Williams,
but explained that he would take the
Baltimorean on as soon as he was
physically fit. The trouncing may
convince Coulon that his health will
never allow him to meet Williams.
Coast promoters now plan to
match Williams with Eddie Campi,
the bantam pride! of California, and
if Coulon does not defend his title
against the winner within a reason
able time either Williams or Campi
will claim the championship. The
claimant will probably be Williams,
as the dope shows him to be a far
better man than Campi.
Johnny Dundee, the New York
featherweight, who has graduated
into the lightweight division, has
been matched to fight Freddie Welsh,
the British lightweight, twenty
rounds in Vernon, Cal, either August
15 or September 9. After his bout
with Champion Johnny Kilbane, Dun
dee found there were no more ban
tams to battle and stepped up a I

Ed Walsh, White Sox pitcher, is
running a correspondence school
that teaches ambitious guys how to
fool batsmen. It's a great idea, but
if Ed is going to tutor his scholars
to pitch as he did yesterday he must
first send them a barrel or so of
That was the commodity Big Ed
used to beat the Red Sox in the final
game of the series. On few occasions
did. the Moose exhibit any speed, and
his spitter was another ingredient
that was rarely employed. A slow
curve was Ed's main reliance, but his
wily use of the bender got him by.
Several times during the game
frenzied fans, used to seeing Walsh
dazzle the opposing batters with his
speed and spitter, remarked that he
"didn't have a thing on the ball."
Why criticize a guy for that when
he can win? Think what he could do
if he had something? He mfght win
twice in one game.
The Boston batters were plainly
puzzled. They are used to facing
speed when against Walsh, and the
tantalizing curve had them swing off
