having a hard time forcing a heavy

Willard turned Fulton down because
the Rochester giant lacks a record

championship fight""--
Frank Moran, a smaller man than
Fulton, has turned the latter down
for mucli the same reason. There is
no chance to say Frank is afraid of
Fulton. He has proved his game
ness. Fulton and his hackers should
forget all about an immediate crack
at the heavy title and campaign
among the lesser lights of the game.
If Fred is really a fighter the time
will come when he can force the
champion into a match.

Price of golf balls will be material
ly reduced before the next season
opens. All balls will be cut at least
ten cents each, and some will be
marked as much as $1.50 off. The
highest priced ball will retail at 75
cents. This unusual cut is possible,
because some patent rights on balls
now in use have expired.
Jimmy Kilroy has got himself a
secretary and is growing more like
a regular fight manager every day.
James has his secretary direct a few
remarks at Doc Krone, and here they
are, unexpurgated:
"Sporting Editor Day Book
When Mr. J. Kilroy stepped into his
office this morning he was grumbling
about the weather and saying un
pleasant things about everything in
general. However, about 11 o'clock
he happened to pick up a paper and
read an article on the wonderful
prowess of Willie Schaeffer, Doc
Krone's wonderful welterweight. Im
mediately he bristled up and turned
Tiis flow of wrath in Doc Krone di
jection. That is why I am writing
this letter.
"Why should Willie Schaeffer seek
the winner of the Lewis-Graves fight
when he still has a good many boys
to lick? Among the many he has
yet to beat is Young Herman, Cana
dian welterweight champ, who is un
der our guidance. We are out with a
challenge to Schaeffer and have $500
in solid coin which says Young Her
man is the better of the two. We can . (T
also get lots of backing on S. Water
st This applies to any welterweight
in the country.
''Young Herman has a string of
knockouts to his credit. He knocked
out Terry Brooks, Freddie Fisher,
and licked the life out of Hillard
Lange, former Canadian champ. He
is positive he can put Willie Schaef
fer to sleep.
"If Doc Krone is anxious for a
fight, let him get into communication
with us. Any reasonable weight and
purse are satisfactory, the preferred
weight being 147 pounds at 3 o'clock.
If Willie Schaeffer once gets into a
ring with Herman we would not give
one cent for his chances of coming
out the best man.
"If it would not be too much trou
ble we would kindly ask you to call
this to the attention of Doc Krone.
Wake him up! Let him know that
Y Hie Schaeffer is not the only wel
terweight on the map. We are will
ing to prove that he is not.
"Hoping that this may catch Doc
Krone's eye, we remain, yours very
truly C. E. Wilson, Sec'y.
