I'out tonight at the National Athletic

Parson Can Hold
Boxing Bout, But
Beer Is Tabooed
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20.
Mayor Alexander granted a per
mit today to Rev. Andrew Rosa,
pastor of the Plaza church, for
a boxing bout at St. Ignatius club
for the benefit of the church.
"But dont you allow any beer
selling at the bar during the time
they are boxing," admonished the
mayor.
There is a bar connected with
the club and Rev. Father Rosa
promised that he would obey the
mayor's mandate. %
GREAT OLD PROGRAM IN
SIGHT TOMORROW NIGHT
It Will Help Whet Up Those
Fans' Appetites for the
Big Bout Coming
The fans will have a good chance to
whet their appetites tomorrow even
ing when they gather at Dreamland
to look the lesser* lights over. With
a 10 round mixup, three six round
mills and a four round ring warmer
on the card, they can be assured of
plenty of lively entertainment.
The old time middle weight rivals,
Fritz Holland and Otto Berg, both of
the northwest, are lined up to go In
the main attraction over the 10 round
route. They are evenly matched, hav
ing fought a fierce draw in Astoria a
couple of years ago. Both have per
formed very creditably before the local
and the transbay fans since they began
fighting around here.
With' a little more- heart, Holland
would be In the class with the best
of the middle weights. He is fast and
clever and has a good punch In either
hand, but his lack of gameness has
been his stumbling block In the past.
This is his chance to make good, and it
is up to him to deliver or else quit
the game around San Francisco and
Oakland.
Berg is full of fight all the time.
He likes the game and never overlooks
a chance to wade in and mix things
up. He can take a hard beating with
out flinching, and, although not a
knocker out. is a telling puncher.
Whenever his blows land, he makes
them count. He has been well dubbed
the "Bat Nelson of the Northwest."
The feather weight setto between
Jimmy Fox and Marty Kane looks like
a great battle. These lads outrank any
of their weight on tho coast. They
met a few weeks ago in a four round
bout, and it wag declared a draw. Ever
since that time the fans have been
looking for the return match, which is
how on tap with all kinds of vim In
sight.
Lee Johnson, the Oakland tar baby,
is all set for his go with Young Abe
Attell of Los Angeles. They are to
meet at 125 pounds. Johnson Is well
known to all the local and transbay
followers of the game, but according
to all reports he will have a hard time
of it with the little fellow from the
south, who is being touted as a regu
lar whirlwind.
Willie Meehan, who used to rule as
the pride of the newsboys' union, Is
now a big, husky middle weight and
will step around with Jack Herrick of
Chicago. They are big, hustling fel
lows, who know little science but who
will always go in and swap punches.
The ring warmer Is to be a light
weight affair between Walter Wall and
Young Hassan, both local boys who
hope to go to the front.
The show will be a popular one, the
prices ranging from 50 cents in the
gallery to $2 In the boxes.
Fairness to all, malice toward none
is the policy of the New Independent
Call.
Billiard Crown Is
On Head of Hoppe
Special Dispatch to The Call
NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—Willie Hoppe
tonight won the 18.2 balk billiard
championship, defeating Ora Morning
star by a score of 500 to 278 In 22 in
nings.
There was considerable variety, as
Hoppe put his clusters together. He
wag inclined to ball billiards, favoring
the shorter swings around the corners."
The one thing that was remarked, how.
ever, was his disposition to flddle over
his masse-shots and to display hesi
tancy.
Several times the crowd laughed at
him as he pitched over a masse. He
redeemed himself by executing, the
most phenomenal number of racing, fol
low and kiss shots, which was for
skillful trickery and spectacular effect
surpassed anything he did during the
match.
Morningstar was so volatile ajid
fickle as an April day. He blew hot
and cold, bringing oft the most amaz
ing cushion caroms and overcoming
perplexing situations by splendid Eng
lish on the cushions. ,He did all this
only to trip up on what seemingly ap
peared to be the most slovenly play
ing of the simplest of shots. Scores:
Hoppe, 000; average 22 16-22; high runs, 86,
77. 74.
Morning Star, 276; average, 13 8 21; high runs.
42, 33. 21, 32.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALI THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1912.
CHALLENGER'S MANAGER CALLS IT BIM
S. F. Lad Unawed by What Appears Bluff
Champion Loafs Along at Training, Evidently Holding His Opponent
Rather More Cheaply Than Past Performances Warrant
Ad Wolgast's welter weight declarations have stirred
Willie Ritchie and his manager, Billy Nolan, up to the
boiling point They do not fancy the strain of Wolgast's
message, and they say that they will show him up on
Thanksgiving afternoon. Both the California llghtwelghf
and his energetic manager feel that the title holder has
overstepped his bounds, especially at this time, when he
is defending his title against a fighter of his own weight
and inches—a fighter who fought him off his feet in a four
round mill.
But Wolgast has the call right now. He can do all the
challenging he pleases. He has beaten the best of them
in the lightweight division, and therefore has no fear In
his heart for any of them. Being a fighter who likes the
game, he is vain enough to seek to conquer the welter
weight field, especially when he stops to consider that
Packey McFarland Is his only rival.
Nolan believes that Wolgast Is merely trying to frighten
Ritchie. This Is quite possible. The lightweight king
knows that he Is going to tackle a lad who lacks the ex
perience of many of the gladiators whom he has toppled
over in the past. He probably believes that Ritchie Is a
mere stripling who will stand for any scare that he sees
fit to throw In.
Wolgast Is very liable, however, to make a great mistake
in little Willie. The latter may have his ring short
comings, but they all must give him credit for being a
good, cool headed general, a lad who knows just what to
do and when to do It. He Is as good a defensive fighter as
this city has produced since the days of Jim Corbett, and
he Is improving all the time.
"Wolgast had better stop talking about welter
weights," says Nolan, "for I believe that he will be glad
to take on a feather weight after Ritchie gets through
with him. Willie is a mild mannered boy, but when he
read about Wolgast and his welter weight speech, he flew
into a rage and declared himself. He is more confident
than ever that he has Wolgast's number:"
The San Francisco lad will have the advantage of sev
eral inches in reach and height. He la one of the tallest
lightweights that ever stepped Into a ring. He looks far
more like a welter weight, or even a middle weight. In his
street clothes, but he showed them all that he could make
the lightweight limit, 133 pounds, when he stepped on the
scales against Wolgast last May. That was one of the
best boosts Willie ever received.
If Ritchie is as confident as he looks, and as defiant as
Nolan would make it appear, then the champion is up
against a man who will make him hop livelier than he
ever hopped in his life; but the outward emotions of the
said champion do not display anything out of the ordi-

ting men begin to speculate all the stronger. It looks like
a good wagering contest right now, with "Wolgast on the
long end at about 10 to 7, according to Commissioner Tom
Corbett, who Is a keen judge of prices. t
This means that the Wolgast end probably will grow
stronger as the days pass by, and that the supporters of
the champion will be offering even money on their man
to knock the local hero out. And when they do open up
we can look for the real lively action—the same kind that
we used to know a few years ago when the game was
good. Ritchie has a great local following that will go the
limit for him, especially when his opponents think he
won't last.
The champion evidently is holding Ritchie rather
cheaply. He is not breaking any records out at his train
ing camp. Three rounds of boxing did him yesterday, just
as on the day before. It may be that he Is not ready to
open up, or it may be that he Is holding back for tho bet
ting. At any rate, he is not extending himself as he did
for his other big fight here.
The cold that the title bearer contracted several days
ago Is still clinging to him. He does not regard it as
serious, however, and believes he will be able to shake it
off in a few days and get his wind into good shape. He
will need all the exercise he can take from now up to the
day of the battle to make him worthy of Ritchie's steel.
An hour's work in the gymnasium, coupled with three
rounds with Kid Mackey of Los Angeles, constituted the
work of the crown bearer yesterday afternoon. He was
not anxious for any more, either, contenting himself with
the usual order of things. He promises to wade in good
and strong today.
Ritchie is going right ahead, as he has for the last
week. If there is any worry on the mind of the little San
Franciscan he shows no outward signs of it. He still
clings to the belief that he can lick Wolgast above all
other; lightweights. That four round battle last May
has convinced Willie that the champion Is made to order
for him and that all he has to do is to keep his head and
become the greatest little fighter in the world.
Ritchie went six rounds yesterday afternoon, dividing
his time between Lem Kegg, the Los Angeles lad. and
Frankle Edwards of this city. He went along in his usual
style, measuring his man and roughing It at every oppor
tunity. He spent an hour on the road in the morning and
another hour in the gymnasium in the afternoon and
pulled up strong.
Promoter Jim Coffroth has organized a party which will
make the trip over to San Rafael this afternoon to see the
California lightweight work out. Coffroth believes that
Ritchie is 100 per cent better than the fight followers give
him credit for being, and he is anxious to convince tho
followers of the game that Willie will spring a surprise
when he meets the champ.

VANCOUVER PUTS IT ALL
OVER THE AUSTRALIANS
Canadians Get Even for 18
Point Licking Given to
Them by Wallabies
Special Dispatch to The Call
VANCOUVER, B. C, Nov. 20.—Van
couver S Rugby football team yesterday
inflicted on the famous Waratahs of
Australia the heaviest defeat of the
tour, scoring two tries to one, thus
gaining the victory by three points.
The final score was 6 to 3, and the
Australians were ably taught the tac
tics of effective dribbling on a wet,
sodden field.
This is the most important "victory
Vancouver ever has won, and makes up
In some degree for the 18 point de
feat suffered at the hands of the Wal
labies, compatriots of the Waratahs, on
their visit to the coast. What would
have been the result on a dry day lo
cal enthusiasts hesitate to say, for on
the three or four occasions when the
Australians handled the ball, they had
the Vancouver defense practically
beaten. The movement was spoiled
by a knockon for a forward pass.
As a matter of fact, the futility of
trying to win on open play should
have been palpable at any stage of
the first half, but the Australians per
sisted in trying to pass when the ball
was in no condition to be passed, while
the Vancouver pack allowed no time
for such maneuvering as would be pos
sible on a dry day.
The Australians showed great sprint
ing powers and proved that they have
safe hands when the ball Is dry and
great command of passing tactics, but
the weather frowned on any such pro
ceedings and their passing rallies would
go ap far and then stop.
Tbe Vancouver backs showed cleaner
hands at catching, the Australians
never having a second chance with
the Vancouver forwards rushing down
on them. The Waratahs on one occa
sion had to touch down to save.

GREAT BATTLE BETWEEN
HEAVY WEIGHTS LIKELY
Gunboat Smith and Frank
Moran Are Said to Have
Been Signed
There Is a chance for a good heavy
weight carnival here shortly. The
latest story on line is that match
maker Mcl Moffltt" of the Oakland
"Wheelmen has nailed Gunboat Smith
and Frank Moran for a 10 round bat
tle In the Piedmont pavilion across the
bay for the evening of December 10.
The winner of that go will have a
chance to show here on New Year day.
Jim Coffroth thinks very highly \>f
Moran and In the event of his trim
ming the Gunboat, he is assured of the
New Year's attraction against the win
ner of the Luther McCarty-Jlm Flynn
bout, which Is to be decided early next
month in Los Angeles. MeCarty Is
alrealy on the job, training hard for
the Pueblo fireman and seems to have
made a hit with the southern sports.
The match seems to hinge on a vic
tory for Moran. He is liked by the
followers of the game for his aggres
sive style and his punching ability. He
beat Charley Horn over in Oakland in
a decisive manner a few weeks ago and
came back with a four round win over
Charley Miller at Dreamland last Fri
day evening, but the best he got was
a draw.
Smith is* a prize quince, say the fans,
who declare that he would not draw a
corporal's guard here nor across the
bay. They have seen so much of him
as a four and a ten round performer
that they are sick of him. He has
quit cold on countless occasions, and
for this reason it is not likely that
Coffroth will have anything to do with
him even if he is lucky enough to put
one over on Moran.
Flynn appears to be anxious to keep
on fighting. He has wired Coffroth his
terms for a match here on New Year
day, showing very plainly that he is
certain of a win over MeCarty. Cof
froth has not lined the latter up as
yet, but he probably will make the
match within a day or two.
Frankie Burns Is also in the field
for more lightweight glory and may
have a chance to meet Wolgast here
on the afternoon of December 13, pro
vided Wolgast successfully defends his
title against Ritchie on Thanksgiving
day. The little German had practical
ly given Coffroth his word to fight
Burns, and as the latter has been look
ing for such a chance, they may settle
their differences without imach further
stalling.
Boxing Promoters
Make Dismal Wail
Special Dispatch to The Call
"NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—Inquiry into
the affairs of leading boxing clubs op
erating under the state athletic com
mission would seem to Indicate that all
the promoters have been disappointed
by the financial results this year. The
mistake has been made in giving too
much money to the boxers. This is
admitted on ail sides, yet there seems
to be no remedy in sight. Instead of
working in harmony, the various pro
moters have followed a cutthroat pol
icy which, in many cases, has brought
about complete failures
Second and third rate boxers have
been allowed to dictate exorbitant
terms. Some of them have received
as much as $2,000 or $3,000 for their
services, which, under other conditions,
would not be worth $500. Star per
formers have received guarantees irw
stead of a percentage, with the result
that gate receipts have not covered the
expenses. It is admitted that boxers
should draw what they are worth in
the shape of percentage, yet soma pro
moters have paid guarantees rather
than go without attractive matches.
They have gambled with the public in
vain and in many instances patrons
of boxing have refused to pay high
prices for ordinary bouts.
The cheapening of the game, too, has
done irreparable harm. Promoters have
provided several so called star bouts
for a low rate of admission to a single
show, thereby educating the sporting
public to conditions that have proved
disastrous. The followers of boxing
are well posted, and promoters now
And It impossible to put on bouts of
doubtful caliber without Incurring a
loss.
The promoters of one club that has
gone out of business blame competition
for their failure. On several occasions
they took in as much as $10,000 for a
single exhibition and either lost money
or found that the profits did not ex
ceed $500.

Br Federal Wlrele«»
LOS ANGELES. Nov. 20.—Captain
Dillon may break a few baseball rec
ords by a "come back" stunt that will
surprise Coast league fans next year.
Hen Berry brings the news from the
east that three major league clubs a.a
negotiating with him for the release
of Dillon so that he may assume'the
management of those clubs. •
Whether any of the deals will be
closed is problematical, but Berry as
suredly will not stand In the way if
Dillon wants to return to the ma
jors and can get a satisfactory con
tract.
Dillon could not be found to make a
statement regarding the offers, but It
goes without saying that he will not
turn down a good if the terms
and conditions are made satisfactory to
him.
I understand that Dillon will make
another trip to the majors and in a
more elevated position than when he
first tried his fortunes with them," said
Berry. "Dillon is not a stranger In
big league society and he did not quit
the big brush through failure to make
good. He ,came back to the Angels
because he wanted to come and In A
trade that Jim Morley put through
after Dillon had grown weary of major
league baseball.
"Now, If he goes back, he will re
quire a contract for a term of yeara
and a satisfactory salary. Otherwise,
he will remain with his first love, tha
Angels. If he does not go to the
majors he will be at the head of the
Angels again next year."
