Johnny Coulon, bantamweight
champion of the world, is scheduled
to leave Chicago tonight for Los An
geles, where he will defend his title
June 9 against Kid Williams of Bal
timore. Williams has been on the cham
pion's trail for months, but Coulon
side-stepped the bout on account of
illness. He now believes he is in con
dition to go against the Baltirorean,
whp is considered some fighter. So
highly is this Easterner regarded that
he will undoubtedly be the favorite
in the coming battle.
There is nothing on which to base
a prediction as to Coulon's chances.
His fights lately have been few and
far between and the class of his op
ponents has not been high. ' Johnny
weighs 117 pounds at the present
time, one pound over the weight
agreed on for the mill. He appears
in fair condition, but is not bubbling
over with confidence over the out
come of the battle.
"What views of the hotel would
you advise me to have published?"
asked the proprietor.
"Not mine," murmured the dis
gruntled guest. "My views wouldn't
be fit for publication,"

Vic Saier has caught the May day
feyer. In climates where winter
weather does not hold down the job
12 months in the year this is the day
when every one feels happy, grabs a
ribbon attached to a high mast and
tangoes around the Maypole.
Notwithstanding the arctic breezes,
Vic Saier is dancing around with his
walloping pole, and beginning to do
the execution of which he is capable.
His failure to "hit has been a weak
point in the Cub attack all spring, and
no one worried about it more than
the blond first baseman. He didn't
let o'ff any loud laments, as that
would be contrary to his taciturn iia-ure.
