White Victor Over Mickey Sheridan
Bout IsWeU Handled.
Vic Saier Is This Year's Home Run
Hitter on the West Side.
Though he only knpcked out
Mickey Sheridan technically, there
was no question of Charlie White's
superiority over the Chicago Irish
man in the Racine ring last night.
Sheridan lasted one round and 48
seconds of the second. Then he got
in front of White's crashing left and
faded away. He was not seriously
hurt, but was undoubtedly saved
more severe punishment by the ref
eree, who halted the bout.
White did not exert himself in the
first round. Sheridan had given it,
put that he would carry the fight and
White seemed content to let him do
it. A few blows were struck, but
White was sizing up his man. Sheri
dan shot from his corner in the sec
ond with a rush, but White was ready.
He jammed a couple of lefts to the
head. White followed his advantage
with a third left to the face. Sheridan
He climbed to his feet at the count
of nine, but was plainly unsteady, and
the referee stopped the bout. Sheri
dan protested that he could have
gone the limit, but it appeared that
White would have knocked him cold.
If the bout, had not been the first
under the new Wisconsin law it is
probably it would have gone on. But
the promoters and referee did not
want to make a mistake. Several
legislators were present to see how
the new law worked, and representa

The knockers did not have a peg
upon which, to hang an objection. In
justice to Sheridan, it must be said
he could have continued, but he
would have been licked. The referee
gave the game a good boost by his
.intelligent action. If last night's pol
icy is continued the Racine bouts, will
never be questioned.

Mr. Murphy's ball lot on the West
Side is becoming known as a fertile
garden from which at least one Cub
home-run hitter sprouts each season.
Back in 1911 Frank Schulte push

Last year Henry Zimmerman, who,
it may be remembered, once played
regularly with the Cubs, hurled him
self to the front with a succession of
four-base clouts. Zim was not as
partial to thered licker as Schulte,
but attracted great attention to the
auto sign in center field. He also
poled many wallops to the clubhouse.
Lately Heinie has switched his play.
Instead of knocking the ball to the
hut he goes there himself. Inside
This year is no exception to the
rule, and another circuit rider has
sprouted from the soil. Needless to
say, the gent's name is Vic Saier.
