For Good of Game Fans Hope Wolgast W$ Be
Willing , to Leave Jack We'sh Out of It
The referee for the Wolgast-Ritchie match will ue named this afternoon.
This simple announcement gives promise of starting the first hitch be
tween the champion and the challenger, provided the former holds out for
Jack Welsh. In the event that Welsh's name is not mentioned, or that he
will step gracefully down from his pedestal, then they can go right ahead
in a businesslike way and select the third man without much difficulty. The
known candidates for the honored i
position are Jim Griffin, Frank Schu
ler and Harry Foley, with that fa
mous old timer, Hiram Cook, in t"he
running, if he cares to undertake the
task of attempting a comeback. He
has not expressed himself as yet. so
nobody knows just where he stands.
Tom Jones, managT of the cham
pion, will do the latter's business at
the Important conference. Xolan pos
sibly may be there to represent the
little California challenger, although
the prospects for his appearance on
the scene are none too bright. The

and Coffroth is likely to make him an
It can safely be said, however, that
Ritchie will report on the job thor
oughly instructed by the man who is
looking after his ring welfare. Ritchie
positively will not stand for Welsh
unless he is forced into the deal. This
means that Ritchie will enter the ring
under the handicap if the champion
insists upon Welsh and nobody else as
the judge of the championship battle.
For the good of the game Welsh

In justice to Jack it must be said
right here that his honesty never has

A bOIfG TRIP FOR 'VOTHING
The champion even went so far a% to
take Welsh back to Milwaukee several
months ago to step into tho ring when
be was signed up to meet Packey Me- j
Farland. That match, unfortunately, i
was stopped by the city officials, so j
the local man had his trip for nothigg.
It would be a pleasant surprise to the
sporting world in general if Jones |
should not mention the name of Welsh, )
or if the latter should decline the job
if it be offered to him. Some time ago
it was rumored along the line that Jack
was through with the game, but he has
not yet made an official announcement
to this effect, and until he does the

Promoter Jim Coffroth has not ex
pressed his opinion. He never does. He
invariably leaves the naming of the
ring official up to the rival fighters or
their managers. He never has been
known to openly favor any particular
ring boss, although he always wants to
have the Job over with as early as pos
There are plenty of competent, reli
able ring judges outside of Welsh. Jim
Griffin is a man who has had twenty j
years of experience as a referee, man- I
ager and promoter of fights. He stands
well in the community and ought to
qualify for the position if they give
him a chance.
Then there is Frank Schuler, who
never has been mixed up with any of the
important ring affairs, but has displayed
wonderful ability among the "leasers."
Hβ is good enough for any company
and will fit in nicely this time if they
see fit to hand the plum to him. Like
Griffin, Schuler has been a factor in the
local fight game for a fifth of a cen
Harry Foley always has stood well
with them all. Unfortunately he made
a bad decision in the Moran-Miller
four round fight the other evening,
calling it a draw when Moran should
have had the derision. This will work
against him, although the principals
may see fit to overlook this mistake.
Cook is an uncertain quantity. If
he cares to accept, he may be chosen.
His name was on the lips of every
fight fan up to 20 years ago, when he
gracefully retired. He was the official
referee of the world famous California
club, and Judged all the big contests
held under the auspices of that won

~ii.se to work yesterday afternoon
at the Seal Rock house, and as a re
sult several thousand Sunday pleasure
seekers were sorely disappointed. The
little champion did not guarantee a
boxing bout, but he did say that he
would go through a few stunts just to

He says he will start the grkid this
noon, but he may put it off for a

Wolgast always does keep away from
a gymnasium as long as possible. Hβ !
says that a week of work is all he
ever requires for any fight.
Ritchie entertained spveral hundred
of his friends over at Billy Shannon's
plai-e in San Rafael yesterday after
noon. His principal stunt was a four

SANTA CLARANS 8,
BARBARIAN CLUB 0
Thus Did Prune Pickers Validate
Their Claim to the State
By WILLIAM UNMACK
On#e again the Santa Clara university
Rugby team has come out on the Ion?
end of a contest, and their victory over
the Barbarians yesterday at Santa
Clara, by a score of 8 to 0, gives fur
ther stability to the claim that the
Prune Pickers are one of the best bal
anced Rugby teams in the state.
The game was hard fought, and all
the scoring was done in the first period.
It was hardly a good game from the
spectacular point of view, play being
confined for the most part to the for
wards in heavy, uninteresting rucks.
In the first half the Barbarians
seemed to have a shade the best of the
attack—that is. in keeping play in San
ta Clara territory—but the club men
did not take advantage of the opportu
nities offered, and the Santa Clara de-
fens e pounced on all attempts made to
carry the ball through to the goal line.
In the second half matters were re
versed, and it was Santa Clara that did
most of the offensive work.
In the first half the university boys
scored eight points—three from a
mark by Bob Flood, which Tommy
Tbarrando converted, and five from a
try scored by Volght. Ybarrando also
goaling this. These were the only
points scored, and as in all previous
games the Santa Clara team kept good
their boast that "our goal line has not
been crossed this season." In the sec
ond half the university team came
wltMn an ace of scoring several times,
but It was only through determined
defensive work that the Barbarians
kept them ai bay. The Barbs on their
part made several "near trys." but
that was as near as they got to It.
TWO MEX LAID Ol'T
Bob Flood of the varsity team and
Boulware of the Barbs hpth had the
misfortune to get badly hurt. Flood
was laid out for a few minutes only,
but Boulware was taken to the uni
versity infirmary in a dazed con4ition.
He was kept at the infirmary, and late
last night was reported to be recovered
and sleeping well.
Soon after the kiekoff interference
by Best gave the Barbarians a free
kirk, but Browne's attempt failed by
inches. The varsity boys then" took
play to the Barbe' territory, Flood mak
ing a neat mark in front of the goal,
which Ybarrando converted.
BARBS LOOK DANGEROUS
The Barbarians came back to the at
tack and looked dangerous, but the
university forwards rushed the ball
back, at their toes to the opposition
25 yard line. Here Knowles secured
and crossed to Tufts, but Best picked
up and ran 20 yards, taking play to
within a few feet of the goal line. The
Barbs put up a stonewall defense and
play went back to half way. Hogan
kicked hard to Faulkner, bet the lat
ter mulled the ball and Santa Clara
forwards kicked over the line. Voight
dropped on It for a try and Ybarrando
Soon after the drop out Harkins,
Ybarrando, Ramage, Stewart and Flood
got away for a rush, the latter being
brought down by Forbes in the Barbs'
25. Boulware secured in the loose and
relieved with a kick to touch at half
In the second half Gibson, Fyfe and
Boulware had a dribble of their own
for 40 yards, but Ybarrando saved the
situation. The varsity from this on
kept up a steady attack. The Barbs
fought back and Tufts crossed to
Meyer, the latter bolting for 25 yards.
LAST MINUTES THRILLERS
The game seesawed for the balance
of the half, with the varsity boys hav
ing an advantage in attack. The last
15 minutes of the game was played in
semidarkness, and the last five minutes
was the most exciting of all, the var
sity lads using every trick to store
and playing a much more open game
than at any period. No scoring was
done, however, and the contest ended
8 to 0 in favor of Santa Clara.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CAI.L, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1912.
Whites Victorious Over Reds
In a Clean, Slashing Battle
Walter Hobart Sets a
Record by His Great
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
HILLSBOROUGH, Nov. 17.—With
practically all Hillsborough and a good
part of San Mateo and B'jrlingame
gathered about the bright green tdrf
of El Cerrito field, the fastest and by
far the most exciting match of the
polo season was played this afternoon.
It was a good, clean game, fought out
to the finish, and the whUes, playing
as the "Ans," finally won from the
reds, or "Ifs," by a score of to 6
Although Drlacoll wai clearly the
star goal getter of the game. It re
mained to Walter Hobart to act up a
new local record by making a phe
nomenal goal from midfleld. The won
derful drive was made early In the
sixth chukkur, when Hobart, with a
tremendous smash, sent the willow ball
flying the whites' posts. 460
feet away. The" feat of the veteran
was greeted with applause from the
spectators on the clubhouse piazza and
with cheers by the crowded bJeachere
on the opposite side of the field.
Although the victory of the whites
was decisive, the match brought forth
the best polo seen here this season.
The reds' team played well, but, with
the exception of the sixth period, was
clearly outclassed by Driscoll's whites.
Har*y Hastings, who had been ex
pected to rush Howard off the ball,
found thdßheavy back unflurried and
Invincible, and Hastings was handi
capped by green ponies.
TEAM WORK COUNTS
That rarity in all combinations of
men—team work—was the significant
feature of the game. Every man of
the Whites tried to play to position,
and the Reds were weak in that partic
ular. Drlscoll and Holloway were
quicker on the ball than their adver
saries and seemed to know better what
to do with it when they got, it. Mc-
Allister played a rattling good game
and surprised everybody with his hard '
riding and effective support.
Altogether the game was a surprise.
Handicap ratings, past performances
and all the polo "'dope" of the enthus
iasts indicated that the Rede would
have a big advantage.
"The Hobart-Tobin combination will
be to* great for the Whites," exclaimed
the experts of the San Mateo Polo
club, but all predictions were upset.
Referee Hoag tossed the ball into
BASKET BALL OF
C. S. A. L. Teams Dish Up Games
Ranging From the Real Thing
The St. Peter's school court was the
scene of a couple of basket ball games
yesterday which furnished to 300 or
more fans samples of the game rang
ing through good, bad and indifferent.
At times the teams would play the
game for all it was worth, and again
they would all but fall asleep in their
The first game was between the 110
pound teams of the Junior sodality of
St. Peter's and the team of St. Joseph's
school. This game was one of the par
lor variety. At only lengthy intervals
was it anything like a good basket ball
contest. In the first half «the sodalists
showed to best advantage, finishing the
first 20 minutes on the long end of an
lg to 4 score. In the second half the
St. Joseph's team came up and did
some good work, but was unable to
overcome the ether's lead. The argu
ment ended with the sodality in the
lead, 29 to 12.
Although beaten, it by no means fol
lows that St. Joseph's is a poor team.
They are but recently organized, while
their opponents of yesterday are old
at the game. With practice the Tenth
street team should be comers in the
C. S. A. L. tournament.
For the winners, Cronin and Con
way, forwards, played great games.
On the other side Donovan did the
most effective work, being responsible
for all of his team's points. Following
are the teams:

Referee. A. Kemp.
Following the above game the un
i limited team of the sodality hooked up
with the team of Star of the Sea
Supposedly this was a basket ball
game, but soccer, or even Rxigby,
would be a more fitting name for it
as it was played. Although but few
fouls were called, it was not for lack
of infringements of the rules. Before
the game was five minutes old the men
of both teams were rolling on the
ground trying to capture the elusive j
leather sphere. Time out was a fre- j
quent occurrence, to enable some 1
player to recover his senses sufficiently
to continue the game. At the end of
the first half the score was 12 to 8 in
favor of the sodality.
The second half was a repetition of
the first, with St. Peter's ever the ag
gressors. The score at the finish was
22 to 12 in favor of St. Peter's. This
game marks the first defeat of the
season for the Star of the Sea team.
It was the team work and Experience
of the Vatican boys tha*» won for them.
For the winners, Joseph Flaherty

The Yosemite and Brooklyn elevens
played 80 minutes yesterday at St. Igna
tius grounds to a no score tie. The
game was a hard one and considerable
feeling was shown by the members of
the old rival teams.
In the last period the 'Yosemites had
the Brooklyns penned In their own ter
ritory and it wae only through a de
termined defense that the Brooklyns
were able to hold the Yosemltes at bay.
A fumble by Hoffman lost a sure score
for the Yosemites in this period.
Twice during the game the Yosemltes
had an opportunity to kick a goal from
placement, but McMillan's kicks flew
wide. Isaacs and McMillan were the
best of the Yosemltes and Buneman and
ScHoole were seen to advantage for
Brooklyn. They will play off the tie on
