The third league people have not
forgotten how they were double
crosed last season when they con
ferred with the powers that be is the
two old leagues.
In the last six years Jack Barry,
second baseman of the Red Sox; has
taken part in five world's series en
gagements, four in Athletic uniform
and one in his present togs. The post
season games have netted Jack $14,
821.15 in addition to his yearly sal
ary. He has only once been on the
Promoter Dan O'Leary has trans
ferred his athletic carnival from Haw
thorne to the race track at 12th st
and 57t. av. The full card will be
run off, beginning at 2:30.
Officers of the Central A. A. U. may
put amateur boxing In Chicago on
the blink. The athletic body declines
to recognize the men working at local
gyms, many of them going under spe
cial ring names. This is a violation
of the A. A. TJ. rules.
Freddy Welsh, lightweight cham
pion, faces a serious proposition as
the winter ring season opens. He
will have to risk his title against a
mighty classy bunch of fighters or
pass up more money than has been
offered a lightweight in many years.
There are nearly ten good light
weights anxious for a chance at
Welsh and most of them are fellows
who can give Welsh a run for his mo
ney. They are also fellows who can
draw good purses in bouts with
Welsh, which means the champion
will have a lot of money propositions
If Willie Ritchie is able to come
back and be anything like he was be
fore he lost to Welsh, he will be a
tough customer for the title holder.
Outside of Ritchie, there are Charley
White. Joe Mandot. Johnny Dundee
and Kid Lewis, anyone of whom is a
fit opponent for the champ.
Lewis is liable to prove the sensa
tion of the winter In lightweight cir
cles. He was good enough to win the
British championship before he came
to the states and since he arrived has
been good enough to beat such classy
performers as Jack Britton, Kid
Graves and Mike Glover.
Lewis beat Britton twice and it was
not so very Idng ago that the claim
was being mado that Britton could
not be outpointed by any Jightweight
in the game.
Britton may have gone back some,
but has not had time to go back very
much, so Lewis must be the goods.
He is the chap all the champion as
pirants will have to look out for.
WHO SAYS THEY CANT COME
BACK? JUDGE HAS PROOF
They do come back. "The girl who
goes down can never come back" has
been proven a falsity. Judge Uhlir
has the proof.
The evidence was produced in mor
als court yesterday. Forty girls who
had walked far in the crimson path
came into the court to prove that
they are going to stay good.
It was wholly a matter of giving
them a chance. Any other "bad"
girl might have been rescued, too,
but no one ever seemed willing to help
the girl gone wrong and found out
"She'll always have to be bad," peo
ple say. "We'll just have to let her
go and keep our daughters away from
Judge Uhlir has these girls placed
with good families, with people who
are Christian In principle, whatever
thejr religion. Given a, real chance,
all the girls made good.
"In one instance," said Judge Uh
lir, "a family that took in a girl was
ordered out of a fiat building when
the news reached the owner's ears."
Since woman was first made from
the rib of man, women have had the
idea they have inside informatioa
about all men.
