RETURN BOUT IS
Jones Wants "A Bunch,"
but Probably Will Listen
to Reason When
It is very probable that as soon as
Tom Jones returns here from L,os An
geles Promoter Jim Coffroth wiil sign
«P Ad WoiSftSi and Harlem Tommy
Murphy for another battle. "VVolgast
Is itchsr.gr for another fight and Mur-
P»y is just as anxious, so the pro
will have no coaxing to do. His
trouble will be straightening out the
financial end of it. and this promises
to be some battle, as Tom Jones would
sooner talk about money than say a
Woleast seems to be elated over his
fight with Murphy. The former light
weight champion is glad to know that
lie can fight the 20 rounds as fast as
ever even when he was not In the best
of shape. WolffftSi >, olleves that his
fight with Murphy will do him a world
°f good and that in the future he will
■now his old time form.
Wolgast visited Coffroth yesterday
nnd asked what he would pay him to
Boa Rivers. As Jones was not on the
ground, Coffroth did not earn to start
*ny more trouble between the fighter
and his mannjrer. so he did not talk
business on this proposition. Coffroth
is ar -' Murphy and "Wolgast
»Wh), and he probably figures the for
better attraction than Rivers.
Jones is expected bark from the
Fouth in a few day*. The difference
In terms between Jones and Coffroth
is not very great and the latter does
nr>t expec-t to hav<> much trouble in
getting into line
-Jim Bui d Harlem Tommy
Murphy left for tfeW York yesterday.
Buckley is anxious to get back to the
Mr- town, as his heavy weight, Gun
boat boxes Matt Wells, the Kng
lish heavy weight champion, March 14.
Before departing- Buckley stated the
terms he desired for a return match
between Murphy and Wolgast. He
paid he would come out to box in April
if Coffroth wanted him.

Ttta Question n? to trfio In entitled to
ret chance at Willio Ritchie Is
Jiscussed by the followers of the
PRine. Nearly two out of every thrf>e
fans will telj you that "Wolgast should
K?t it—that is if he does not suffer a
reverse in tho me.-intine.
From reports that come from the
east it looks very doubtful if Wolsast
■will be the first to be accomme
Somo of the stories have it that
Ritchie is planning a slagre career over
in England, which would mean that
ulij not put on the gloves for
many months. As it in now. P.it
tlfd up with theatrical contracts,
wbtch r>:n into May. The fans expect
him to fight on July 4. and It is prob
ab!y his duty to do it if lie wants to
prove that lie is a real champion.
Ritchie gained all the honor* that
go wfU> winninsr tho championship, hut
because of the conditions under which
it wag won lie should prove feonclu
fc-ively that it» vvas no fluke, lie is in
bound to g-ive Wolgast another

the latter is entitled to t'ne first whack.
might want to engage in a fight
of short duration before he goes over
[arathon route, and it would be
his privilege to try himself out against
lome second rater, but Wolgast has the
Call on him for the first real fight.
.Some aro claiming that Rivera has
the call over Wolgast. Not so, accord
ins? to Joe's record. Kilbane's knock-
Ictory over Rivaifet and "Wolg-ast's
victory over the Mexican easily puts
Ad to Th<- front. If Murphy beats "vv'ol

PETROSKEY A FAVORITE
OVER FIGHTING NEWSIE
Fans Still Consider Sailor a.
Contender for Middle
Pailor Kd Petroskey Is a 10 to S
favorite In the betting to defeat AVII
-lie Meehan, the fighting newsboy,
whom he meets Friday night at Droam
land pavilion "before the Market club.
Petroskey's recent fights have been so
finpressive that the fans still consider
him a contender for championship hon
ors in the middle weight division, and
fijrure him to beat Meehan. Th« latter
will not he without supporters, how
ever. As there are many good judges of
boxers who favor the fighting news
lieports from the training camps of
both scrappers are. to the effect that
they are in excellent shape for tho
coming encounter. Petroskey ts hard
at work on Yerba Buena island, while
Meehan is training at El Vcrano. Mak

Johnny O'Leary. feather wolght cham
pion of thdOhorthwept, is giving away
weight to T,ee Johnson, but Is confident
of his ability to defeat the colored
boxer. Both are fast, and their scrap
should be worth seeing.
Henry Iliekey. the sensational
feather weight of Oakland, will oppose
Young Cohen, a rattling good 122
pounder. The latter should give Hlckey
a real test, lie has battled some of
the toughest l»oys of his weight In this
section and has shown to advantage
The heavy weight contest between
Charley Miller, the giant motorman.
and Rufus Cameron, the colored heavy
weight of Los Angeles, should result
in a real Donnybrook. Miller is anxious
to get back into the limelight, and
promises to put Cameron away in short
The contest between Young Abe At
tell of Denver and Jimmy Fox, the local
124 pounder, should be a scientific ex
hibition, as both are past masters at
the art of boxing. They are lightning
fast and probably the cleverest of their
weight on the Pkdflc coast.

THE 77 CORRECT TITLES
Today The Call offers to Booklovers , contestants the great contest catalog, a list of 5,000
book titles, carefully arranged in alphabetical order. 77 of these 5,000 titles are GUARANTEED
to be the 77 titles represented by the 77 pictures. And with each catalog you get 7 certificates, redeem
able as the pictures appear, for the first 35 contest pictures. This is a NEW catalog. The catal< >gs used
in The Call's two previous contests are of no value in this third and greater one.
WHAT THE I
CATALOG IS I
The Catalog is a list of over 5,000 book titles with the |
names of authors especially compiled for this contest and j
copyrighted by the Booklovers , Contest Company, Sam
Francisco, Cal. From this collection of book titles the 77
titles represented by the 77 pictures that appear in the
contest are selected. THUS ALL THE 77 CORRECT |
TITLES ARE IN THE CATALOG. No more valuable j
aid could be given to a contestant than the catalog fur-1
nished. Suppose a picture represents a battlefield in j
whifeh a company of cavalry is riding down a*n infantry 1
command. Suppose that picture was drawn to represent
the title "Overcome by the Cavalry.' , Well, if you have
a Catalog you will not have to know to begin with that
such a title exists. Use your ingenuity in figuring out
what titles that picture might represent. Then look in
your catalog to see if such titles are listed there. If you
do not find one of your possible titles in the Catalog, then
you can be sure that the title is not correct.
FOR ALL THE
In the Contest Catalog you will fold seven certificates.
Each certificate is good for five pictures. Thus you get &5
pictures FREE with the Catalog. For instance, certificate
No. 1 is good for pictures Nos. 1 to 5; Certificate No. 2 is
good for pictures Nos. 6 to 10; Certificate No. 3 is good for
pictures Nos. 11 to 15; Certificate No. 4 is good for pictures
Nos. 16 to 20; Certificate No. 5 is good for pictures Nos.
21 to 25; Certificate No. 6 is good for pictures Nos. 26 to
30; Certificate No. 7 is good for pictures Nos. 31 to 33.
HOW TO USE THE
If you wish pictures Nos. 1 to 5, tear out Certificate
No. 1 and present it at the office of The Call and the clerk
will give you the pictures, or send in the certificate by
mail, with the proper postage, and the pictures will be
mailed to you. If you wish pictures Nos. Ito 10, tear out
certificates Nos. 1 and 2. If you wish pictures Nos. 1 to
20, tear out certificates Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Of course you
can not use a certificate for pictures until Qic actual pic
tures you want have been published in the paper. For
instance, if you wished pictures Nos. 31, 32, 33, 34 and 35,
you would have to wait until pictures Nos. 31, 32, 33, 34
and 35 have been actually printed in the paper.
If you use your ingenuity and your Catalog you will
win, and remember that you get 35 pictures FREE with
the Catalog. This is a double opportunity for you—the
Catalog and the,first 35 pictures together.
This is a NEW Catalog. The catalogs used in The
Call's two previous contests will not aid you in this third
and greater contest.
