of Baltimore, the challenger for the
title, and Charles Ledoux, the cham
pion of France and. in fact, of Europe.
A battle between Coulon and Ledoux
will develop a real world's champion
and the little French -wonder is at the
present time in New York for the pur
pose of arranging a meeting with Cou
lon to determine who is th world's
champion. Ledoux defeated Digger
Stanley, the British, bantam champion,
some time ago, knocking him out and
thereby gaining the championship of
Europe. His record is an exceptional
ly good one and. like Kid Williams, he
has demonstrated that he has the
knsckoat punch. For a brfntam Le

Battling Nelson was one of the very

and demonstrating that there is such

Ad Wolgast may be slipping back
weight, has been kept busy the past
week trying to prove that Joe Mandot
did not have the best of the ten round
bout at New Orleans. Ad seems to be
entirely on the defensive and has been
most anxious to counteract the impres
sion which has gone forth that the
southern boy had him shaded. Even
champions get riled -when the criticism
is not the right way. However, it
might hare been just as well for Wol
gast to forget the affair and attand
to his future engagements. - for the
more he stirs it up the more convinc-
ing the New Orleans scviues seem to
make it that Maadot did have the
shade in the contest, and they make
it stronger by using the referee's own
statement, that "If he had been called
on for a decision he would have been
obliged to give it to Mandot."
In view of. the fact that Ed Smith,
the referee, had been chosen by Wol
gast it seems that Ad Is making a mis
take in trying to agitate the matter
further. The best way to settle the
question Is to have another whirl at
it over the marathon course and the
chances are that a winner will be re
turned before the end of the 20th
round, or at least there will be no
trouble in deciding a winner. That

NEW YORK, N. Y., Nov. 19. Pos
sibly It is out of mere venera
tion to their years, but the lay
observer is struck by the fact that all
selections of star baseball teams made
by experts, ball players, umpires 'or
mere fans this season include the
names of those doddering old gentle
men Chris Mathewson. John Hones
Wagner and Edwardo Walsh.
These parties are veterans, as base
ball goes, and they have seen many a
youthful star rise, and also fall, dur
ing the past few years, but somehow
the close of every season finds these
aged birds in there being selected by
those who lore to dope out paper ball
' teams. Walsh is not as senile as tne
31 year old Mathewson. or the 38 year
old Honus, but they are veterans none
the less, and no youthful light has yet
been able to dim the luster of their
Mathewson, Walsh and Wagner!
How much would the average mana
ger bid for this trio? Walsh, the suc
cessor to Joe McGinnity's title of "The
Iron Man," is merely in his prime as a
pitcher. How long Honus Wagner will
last is something that no man can
answer. He is a wonderful ball play
er today, and age does not wither nor
custom stale in his case. Mathewson
may be fading, but you don't convince
anyone who saw him .work in the
world's series of that fact.

that title should go to Eddie Plank).

-Sucker Is the
era when new phenoms are of almost
The free handed (manner in which
the baseball leaders are fired now
adays, especially by clubs which seem
to need managers about as much as
anything else, is causing considerable
astonishment in baseball circles.
While Roger Bi snahan's dismissal
was not wholly u, jxpected, in view of
the numerous rep ts of the past year,
it has aroused all ost as much com
ment as the di -charge of Frank
Chance by Charles W. Murphy.
Bresnahan's record with the Car
dinals compares very favorably with
the achievements of numerous other
managers who are considered fairly
successful. While he had a poor sea
son in 191X he was gradually getting
together a pretty good 'ball club, and
he was always a strong road attrac
tion. Miller Huggina, the Cards' second
baseman, -will be Bresnahan's succes
sor, and Huggins friends believe He
will make good. However, any St.
Louis manager has a tough rowflb hoe.
especially under the new regime there,
and Cincinnati is considered a sinecure
to a berth in the Mound City.
Weau "Uses Prerogative.
Cincinnati, by the way. Is still talk
ing about possible successors to
Hennery O'Day, although Hank's rec
ord should warrant another vear's
trial. All in all, the old umpire did
fairly well wivh the Reds.
It is said that ever since Mrs. Brit
ton became head of the St. Louis club
that she has constantly interfered in
the management of the team, some
thing which even as astute an owner
as John T. Brush has hesitated to do
with his managers.
That no team leader can be suc
cessful if he has to obey the whims
of the owner has been proved time
and again. Prooably not even a Mc-
; Graw nor a Connie Mack could finish
in the first division if they were sno-
ject to the baseball caprices of a
J feminine mind or even a masculine
mind, for that matter.
