WINTER SPORTING DOPE FROM EVERYWHERE
Charlie White and Ad Wolgast May
Be Rematched in Milwaukee.
A return fight between Ad Wolgast
and' Charlie White is being agitated,
and for once there can be no objec
tion. The second battle is much to be
In their meeting last week Wol
gast and White really fought They
gave the best and hottest show that
has been seen in Milwaukee for some
time. If they meet? again the same
hot rivalry will crop out, and the re
sult will be another fierce mill.
Usually a return match is the re
sult of a previous stall between two
fighters, who had the1 second bout in
mind all the time. This charge can
not be brought against Wolgast and
White. They turned loose everything
Wolgast still' thinks he can lick
the Chicagoan. White is confident
he can again defeat the Cadillac
man, and this time by a larger mar
gin. Such a feeling on the part of
both fighters is bound to make for a
speedy scrap. If White should win
again it would just about mean the
elimination of Wolgast.
'No agreement has been signed for
the second set-to, but a Milwaukee
promoter has suggested Jan. 26 as a:
good date. White and 'Wolgast will
probably get together some time this
week to arrange terms.
Jimmy Burrows, an English light
weight, died in London last night aft
er a bout with George Freeman.
Burrows was forcing the milling
when ha collapsed. He died without
regaining consciousness. He was not
sent to the floor by a blow.
Joe Jeanette and .Sam Langford
have begun work in Paris. Langford
won Saturday, and they were mme
diately rematched. Their teamwork
will be good for a year's meal tickets.
Tinker Deal Is Still in Air $10,000
Bonus Is Held Up.
Joe Tinker clings tencjously to the
baseball spotlight, and will continue
to do so until President Ebbets of the
Brooklyn Dodgers comes through
with the bonus he announced, with
much advertisement, he would give
to the former Red manager.
All talk that the Cincinnati direct
ors would block the deal with Brook
lyn has dissolved, just as was to be
expected. Cincinnati will get Pitcher
Yingling, a southpaw, and Outfielder
Moran from the Dodgers, returning
all the coin but $2,500. Simmered
down the deal amounts to a swap of
Yingling, Moran and $2,500 by
Brooklyn for Tinker, and possibly
But Tinker's consent is needed to
make the deal air-tight And Joey
says he will withhold his signature to
a Brooklyn contract until he gets his
$10,000 bonus, and a contract that
suits his tastes and purse.
He is in an enviable position. By
refusing to sign with the Dodgers he '
does not become a hold-out, as the
agreement between Ebbets and Herr
mann expressly stipulated that the
deal would be pushed through only
on Tinker's consent
Ebbets said he was coming to In
dianapolis yesterday to hand Tinker
his bonus, and also offer him a con
tract. The Brooklyn president got as
far as Cincinnati,, and then decided
it would not be dignified for a mag
nate to swap language with a mere
ballplayer, especially when said mere
ballplayer had the magnate just
where he wanted him.
So Ebbets stopped off in Cincin
nati, and sent Manager Robinson to
Indianapolis to talk to Tinker. Rob
bie enjoyed the scenery along the
railroad, but found' no Tinker when
he hopped off the train. Joe had got
