BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BOXING
Some enthusiasts are getting all
het up over the prospect of Willie
Ritchie getting another ten-round
fight with Freddie Welsh and taking
the title from the champion. But it
is easier to convince a copper that a
murder is a murder than to -make us
subscribe to any such opinion.
The memory is too fresh of the
way in which Charlie White made
Freddie look like an amateur, only to
have the champion come back in a
return fight and make the Chicago
man star in the role of a sucker.
Welsh is wise to all the tricks of
his trade and is not averse to increas
ing the box office tolls. The best
way to do that is to let an American
lick him in ten rounds, then reverse
the tables on said American in a fu
ture go and clean him up.
Over the 20-round route the results
might be entirely different. Ritchie,
White and the rest of the challenging
crew will be foolish and monkey with
Welsh and the ten-round gamer Give
Willie a crack at the title over twice
the distance and he can carry a small
bet for us.

The winner of the first prize gets
a season ticket to all games for the
1915 season in the Cub park. The
next ten will be given single tickets
to the opening game, April 14. The
original announcement of the con
test called for only five first game
passes, but interest in the team was
so strong and so many fans hit the
right combination that it was thought
fair to double the number.
Miss Caldwell, who is an enthu
siastic fan, missed the first prize by
the narrow margin of twenty min
utes, her answers reaching The Day
Book office that far behind the an
swers of Mr. Orlowsky.
Ten more fans named the right
lineup, but their answers were late in
arriving and they were nosed out of
the prizes. Many peculiar mistakes
were made by the contestants. The
funniest was the naming of Ping Bo-
