New York. N. V.. April 18. Fight
fans generally are wondering how loim
ai McCoy, who surprised everybody
I I I by knocking out Ccorgc Chip last
week In the first round, will retain
the middleweight championship gain
ed by that lucky punch.
The sporting public, as well as th
newspaper men are divided as to the j
credit deserved by McCoy for his I lc
tory, but it has bepn pretty well es
tablished that McCoy was not "stall

Chip, and while he himself admit"
that he was somewhat surprised when
hlB swift uppercut to Chip's chin, ex
?ctly one minute and fifty second
after time was called lor the first
round laid the champion on' for tht
count, there Is no doubt that he was
bent on giving the champion a hard
battle and had trained faithfully for
McCoy a Surprise.
McCoy's victory has caused the
greatest sensation in the pugilistic
world since Young Corbet; won the

he tought Mike Qibbons, took a hard
beating from him and four Dlghtl
later fought Joe Chip, brother of the
ex-champion. Then came a return
match with Joe Chip. Later George
was substituted and McCoy decided
that the time had come to do some
real training. That the training was
not in vain Is now history.
McCoy says he is going to keep in
training now that he has the title

of his newly won honors.

Joe Tinker's Chifeds look like winners in the new Federal league this
season, although the Baltimore team is a powerfal aggregation, and St.
Louis has a splendid team. Three promising players with the' Chicago
team are Claude Hendrix, pitcher for the Pittsburg Pirates last season, who
is now in mid-season form; Tom McGuire, a young pitcher who is also
showing good form, and Al Wickland, with the" Cincinnati Reds last year
who is now making a fine showing in the outer garden. '
Killifer Injunction Outcome
Makes It Possible for Others
to Return to Original Clubs
WORKS BOTH WAYS
Affidavit Collecting Campaign
of Federals Has Double
Hard to Prove
I By Monty)
New- York, April IS - story j3 g0.
ing i he rounds here concprmns
moves being made bj the Federal
league mainati - si a result of the
Kiihfer decision It la said that
hunch of affidavits is being collected
from the several star players who
jumped the old reserve clause of or
ganized b a 1 T. with a view to being
prepared when more advanced stai
are reache.l by the legal battl
the courts of the land.
The outstanding fpature of the
Killifer decision so far as it effects
the immediate present is that It
mikes It possible for other resrsp
i !an8' Jumpers. like the Phillies'
catcher, to return to their original
cJubs under a pretense of fulfilling
I the moral obligation Implied in the
reserve clause, but that, on the other
hand, It allowr, the jumpers to stay
with the Pedfl if they (er,lre to. In
other words, men like Tom Seaton,

Campaign Has Double Purpose.
The alleged affidavit (electing cam
Deign of the r-eds is supposed to
have a double purpose, it will be
recalled that Judge Sessions at Grand
Rapids refused the Ch cago Feds'
plea for an Injunction against Killifer
on the grounds that the Feds did
not come into court with "clean
hands. " It was because they lured
Killifer, in the opinion of the court,
to leave libs old employers. The
Feds, if engaged In the same kind
ot a legal battle again, want to nrava
1 that the cubes ot the other players
are different. That is purpose num
ber one of the affldivits, which, it Is
said, will tell details of all transac
tions between each player and th
Feds. It is said that the players will
subscribe their names to documents
declaring they petitioned the Feds for
a job. rather than the reverse the
Feds making the advances. Thus,
showing thai the player, not the
league or club, was the aggressor in
the events, that made him a member
of the Fed roster, the Feds think
they will be able to prove in other
similar cases that they are coming
into court "with clean hands"
Now for the second purpose. The
damage suit against the Feds for per
suading players to violate their moral
obligations with their original clubs,
which have been planued by organ
ized baseball men will depend large
ly, it seems, on the ability of the
plaintiffs to prove that the Feds were
the aggressors, the prime movers in
the action. Thus, if the Feds can
prove they did not go after the pla
ers, but that the players made appli
cation for positions, the complexion
of the whole thing is likely to be
changed considerably Affidavits
from all the players who jumped, if
presented to a court in a package,
might go far to establish an opinion 1

did business in the signing of their
