Dare Devil Dave Altizer, former
jig leaguer, now a member of the
Minneapolis club of the American As
ociation, called at Federal League
leadquarters yesterday in company
ith Southpaws Packard of the Feds
nd Brennan of the Phillies, and gave
. out plainly that he was willing to
ook up with the third league.
Packard and Brennan were more
sserved, the former saying he mere-
wanted to chin with his old man
ager. Being in Altizer's company was a
suspicious fact, however. Dave ap
eared to be acting as chaperon for
'he pair of left-handers and intro
duced them around. '
Brennan is the gent who earned a
certain amount of fame and a larger
portion of censure by soaking John

IS CHIP ANOTHER KETCHELL?
George Chip, the Scranton (Pa.)
boxer who knocked out Frank Klaus
twice in two months, is called the
best middleweight since Stanley
When Klaus was knocked out the
first time by Chip he was considered
the middleweight champion by virtue
of his defeat of Billy Papke in Paris,
for upon Papke's shoulders had fallen
the title when Ketchell was killed.
Chip fought his first ring battle in
New Castle, Pa., in 1909, knocking
out George Gill in two rounds, and
followed this by knocking out the
next four men to face him, none of
the fights going over four rounds.
Since that day Chip has met every
middleweight of any account, and
Jack Dillon of Indianapolis is the
only man who has bothered him to.
Dillon and Chip have had several
victories and defeats as the result of
these meetings, and it is doubtful if
the Hoosier boxer was within the
middleweight limit in his bouts with
One thing that recommends Chip

contest to be staged by Uncle Tom
McCarey at Vernon, Cal., to produce
a real middleweight champion.
Chip became a boxer as the result
of violating a Pennsylvania law,
which makes it a prison offense to as
sault a man under ground. Chip
about eight years ago knocked out a
mine boss while working as mule
driver and fled from- Scranton to New
Castle to escape arrest.
In New Castle he fell in with the
veteran Jimmy Dime, w.ho brought
him to his present fistic eminence.
He was born in North Scranton in
1888. His father is George Chipulois,
a Polish miner.
Chip stands five feet eight inches
in height and his. normal weight is
162, but he makes 158 with ease. He
is not clever upon his feet; in fact,
