Champion Lightweight and His Manager Are Hopeful of
a Speedy Recovery Operation for Appen
;icj dicitis Is Successful.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Nov. 30. Owing
Jto Ad Wolgast's splendid physical con
dition when he was stricken with ap
pendicitis two days ago, and his won
derful vitality, Tom Jones, the light
weight champion's manager and Wol
gast himself, believe that It will only be
a matter of time until the champion
will be able to return to the ring to
meet all that question his title. Today
Wolgast Is in Clara Barton Hospital,
where he la convalescent from an oper
ation which he underwent yesterday for
appendicitis, and which the doctors
deemed necessary to save the fighter's
life. WolgaBt was pronounced as being
out of danger, and that the silt In his
side Is going to heal rapidly Is the opin
ion of his surgeons.
Mrs. Wolgast was with her husband
during the operation at the hospital and
will stay with him until he Is entirely
recovered. Wolgast's manager Is spar
ing no pains to see that the Invalid gets
no shooks and that his progress to re
covery Is in no way Impeded.
Welsh Expresses Regret.
Fred Welsh, the English challenger,
has expressed his extreme regret that
this opponent should have been stricken
,on the very eve of the big battle and
has sent his expressions of sorrow to
the same little lightweight.
During the past week the Cadillac
Kid has appeared in the best of fettle.
His boxing partners and friends say
that he was never In better spirits, and
the entire sporting public hero are
I much shocked by the news of his ail
ment, on -ruesaay nigni, wolgast was
at weight, seemed to be In excellent
physical condition, and, apparently, had
no pnysicai or memai depressions.
IHobo" Dougherty, Tom Jones, and
Wolgast were at the training headquar
'tera and all retired early. About 2
.o'clock Wolgast was taken with se
'vere pains, and by 4 o'clock was in the
Ihospltal preparing for the operation.
Mrs. Wolgast was sent for and a
consultation was held with the doctors
and surgeons. An operation was decided
to be the only course that would save
the fighter's life, and Wolgast consent-
M to go under the knife.
Wolgast Insisted that he bo allowed
to' undergo the operation without tak
ing an ether, but the physicians over
ruled the champion, and at 9 o'clock
yesterday morning he was wheeled into
the operating room. By 10 o'clock the
Burgeons 'had completed their task and
the invalid was wheeled back to his
room and put in bed to recover from the
anaesthetic. It took most of yesterday
for Wolgast to come out from under
Influence of the ether, and his mind
was hazy up until late last night. When
he commenced to recover consciousness
he was under the Impression that tho
big fight was over and that Freddie
Welsh had knocked him out. He In
quired how Freddie had done It and
seemed to think thnt he was recovering
from the blow.
The canceling of the big fight Is con
siderable of a llnnnclal loss to bQth the
fighters and thtr managers. Seats to the
performance have been In great demand
for tho past ten days, and for a week
the seats have been practically sold out.
More than $30,000 has been received from
the sale of tickets, and this will all
have to be returned to the purchasers.
The fighters were to receive Si per
cent of the proceeds from the moving
pictures, and Wolgast was to receive
113,000, and AVnlsh $3,000.

Vic Willis Will Not

NEWARK, Del.. Nov. 3a "It would
be useless for them to trade me to any
club as I will never pitch league ball
again." This statement was made by
"Vic" Willis, the former National
League star when told that a dispatch
had been sent out from Chicago to the
effect that President Murphy, of the
Cubs, was negotiating a trade whereby
ho would become tho property of an
Eastern League club.
WUUs pitched for the St Louis Na
tionals In 1910. but during last winter
he was sold to the Cubs. He refused
to report to that club, however, as
he had purchased the Washington
House here, and decided to give up
baseball after thirteen consecutive
years in the National League.

BOB THAYER'S SPORTING GOSSIP
King Football ends his reign today.
Today's battlo on the Hilltop should
be a wonderful contest, showing both
old football and new. The Pennsyl
anlans are heavy, well-trained, and
able to stand tho gaff, as they say in
tho classics. On tho slippery field at
Georgetown the speed of tho Blue and
Gray backs"Wlll bo largely nullified,
and other means will have to be taken
to win from Lehigh. It's the last con
test of the gesdon, too, for the Mlli
toppcrs, and they should be in admir
able playing condition.
Baseball Is murmuring.
I hereby extend my Thanksgiving
greetings lo Manager Clark Griffith, of
the Nationals. I trust he will thorough
ly enjoy his turkey, his friends' dis
course, and recover from tho effects of
his appetite. Then, after tho holiday
festivities ore done, I sincerely hope
that he will be able to make things
much brighter for the Washington
club than they ever have been before.
I'm with you, Giif, ovory little minute.
Tho unexpected attack of appendicitis
suffered by Ad Wolgast calls oft what
might have been quite the best bout
of the year. However, when talk is
heard that the little champion will nev
er again have his old strength, I am
forced to smile. Athletes of all classes,
football men, baseball stars, boxers,
and acrobats, have had this modern
disease with no HI 'effects. Wolgast Is
a tough little lad, and, aa soon as the
effects of the operation have worn off,
you will find him training again and,
furthermore winning again, for there
is no other boxer in his class who can
defeat him right now.
Have you seen that coat?
Pennsylvania battles Cornell' today on
Franklin Field and thousands will be
there to ffee. I'd like to see that game.
If only to see how well the Red and
Blue can come back after a season
which has been filled with misery. Not
in years has a Pennsylvania eleven
played so poor football. Rumors are
heard on every side that a decided
shake-up in the methods of conducting
football at Philadelphia will be seen
next year. Certainly something has
gone wrong this season, and nothing
but a radical chango will remedy af
fairs and bring back to old Penn those
great victories of other years.
Br-r-r, some wind at the Hilltop!
Manager Griffith shows a common
sense coolness and reticence to predict.
He knows as well as the rest of us
that Washington has reached the end
of the road, when it comes to endur
ing a tall-'end ball club. He knows that
nothing but Improvement Is expected
from now on. The fans are not looking
for pennant winners this year or next,
or even the next, but they are sick
and tired of seeing tho other fellow get
ting the plums all the time. If Clark
Griffith cah, by dint of hard work, pull
the Washington club up from Its own
lowly position In the American League
to a place of respect, if he can kill that
by-word about being "first in war," etc.,
he may have the keys of the city. Noth
ing will be too good for him. The road
Is long, but there Is an end to every
road. The local fans have reached tho
ends of theirs and the appointment of
Griffith indicates that the clubowners
have a distinct appreciation of this.
Ready, Cornell? Ready. Penn?

that the automobile business has en

"First, the automobile business was

"I am convinced," ne says, "that next
year is going to be a hummer for the
automobile trade, and its allied inter

automobile hungry. There la going to

NATURE'S CURE FOR
Only by removing the cause can
any chronic Ulcer or Old Sore be
cured. No one will question the
truthfulness of this statement. The
cause is always. from an inward
source, never an outward influence,
and therefore the only possible way
to get rid of these places is to take
internal treatment. Pure blood ia
the one unfailing cure for chronic
ulcers; just as long as the circulation
is allowed to remain in an impure
condition the place will be kept open
from the constant discharge of im
purities into it from the blood. But
pure blood will change this condition
and the flesh tissues will be nour
ished and made healthy, 'apd then
nature will promptly and perma
nently heal the ulcer. S. S. S. is
recognized as the greatest of all
blood purifiers and therein lies it3
power to cure old ulcers and sores.
It goes into the circulation, and n
moves every trace of impurity or
infectious matter, and so enriches
this vital fluid that it nourishes all
flesh tissues instead of irritating
them with impurities. When S. S. S.
has cleansed the blood and the place
has healed over it is not a surface
cure, but the ulcer is filled in with
.healthy flesh from the bottom . Free
dook ana any medical advice will be
sent to all sufferers ;who will write us.
S. S. S. is for sale at drug stores.
