Joe Welling was outpointed by Mil
burn Saylor in ten rounds at Detroit.
Saylor had the better of six frames,
two were even and in the remaining
two Welling had a shade. Larney
Lichtenstein's lightweight was not
outclassed. He gave a clever exhibi
tion of blocking and was not marked.
This was Detroit's first battle in ten
Johnny Kjlbane, feather champ, led
Benny Leonard at the end of ten
rounds in New York, but the verdict
would have been reversed had Leon
ard possessed confidence. He clinched
continuously, even when things were
coming his way, and appeared awed
by the champion's reputation. Leon

fight and also opened a cut over Kil

Woodlawn, with a score of 2,854,

bowling tourney. Harold Lampert
took the lead in singles with 700.
Jimmy Kilroy, the North Side fight

Bud Logan. Ever Hammer is the only

In the next four days the White
Sox have an excellent opportunity to
tighten up the race in the American
league. Detroit will be here for a
quartet of engagements, and at pres
ent the Tigers lead the locals by
three games. New York, in second
f place, is two games back of Detroit
The Jennings gang will take a lot
of punishment before halting right
now. Hughie has the happy faculty
of getting his men out in front each
spring, but this season they seem to
have more stability. The pitching is
better than any a Tiger crew has re

is the sanie Did smashing attack.
Veach has lined up besides Cobb and
Crawford and isj)acing step for step

strength present than South Side
fans have seen for many years. It

with Faber, Russell, Benz, Wolfgang
and possibly Scott in prime condi
tion. Jasper can also be relied on for
a well-pitched game if the older fel-'
lows -fall down on their assignments.
That last game went to Cleveland
