ate a reputation when he fought Jack

last, even though he lost, and he has
been picked by many as the best of the
wKte hopes. He'has taken on weight
and strips now over 1M when his flesh
is hard. He is rough and can take the
gaff which is most essential ,1n any
heavyweight battle. McCarty is big and

over six feet in height. He lacks ex

he may upset a lot of dope.
On December 11, "Xoung Jack"
OBnen will celebrate his 18th Birthday
and on December 16 he will fight Jimmy
Duffy 10 rounds at Buffalo, N. Y., at
135 pounds. "Young Jack" has had a
remarkably successful career, consider
ing that he only started fighting a lit
tle more than 18 months ago, or, to be
exact, his first appearance in a boxing
contest was on Jcay i, 191L He has not
picked out marks to meet, but jumped
into the limelight from the first by
meeting the best lightweights in the
business, among them Young Erne, K.
tt Brown, Ad Wolgast, Leach Cross and
t ne Bound Hogan. He became a head
liner at the New York clubs after his
first appearance and has been most sue-tt-ssful
in all his battles. He. is a fine

i "I think it would be a wise thing for
Willie Ritchie to try and raise the
lightweight limit to 135 pounds, as it is
a better weight than 133, and it would
make the limit uniform all'' over the
world, as that is what Great Britain,
France and Australia follow now. I
have always been n favo;, too, of the
middleweight limit being placed at 160
and- all weighing at three oclock in
The announcement that Willie Ritchie,
the new lightweight champion, will
raise the 'weight limit- to 135 pounds
to suit his own convenience, does not
-Strike the boxing fans with the right
ring. Ritchie has no right to raise tho
limit. However, under the circumstan
ces, it might be a good thing for the
game if the limit was raised and made
tti conform with the lightweight limit
in other countries, which is 135 pounds.
An effort has been made for the past
10 years to have a uniform scale of
weights adopted by the various coun
tries, but without success. Now it may
be brought about by the new champion,
for If he insists on raising the limit
to suit his own fancy It will mean
that It will go to where the British and
French weights are already placed, also
the Australian. And this fact brings
to mind another issue that of world's
champion. Wolgast has always claimed
the .world's title, but he really had no
honest claim to it. Looking at this
matter in a broad light, Freddie Welsh,
the new British champion, has equal
claims to the world's title. Wolgast
never defeated the British or Austra
lian champion for the world's title, nor,
for that matter, did Battling Nelson,
se that Ritchie can only be considered
the American champion.
Should Ritchie want to tilt the weight
it would meet the approval of the Brit
ish, French and Australian boxing
critics, for that is just where they stand
on it now. Practically all the pro
moters in the states are against ring
side weighing, and if the limit is
changed It would be a good Idea at the
same time to change the weighing
time from ringside to two or three
oclock the day of the contest. If this
was done it would bring about a uni
form weight for the lightweight class
Following the defeat of Ad Wolgast
by Willie Ritchie come challenges from
all sides to the new champion and the
promoters are breaking their necks try
ing to get some of the choice matches
In sight. The best match of the whole
lot seems to have been passed by In the
excitement, and that is between Joe
Rivers and Wolgast The fans do not
forget the remarkable fight between
Rivers and Wolgast. when the latter
won on an alleged fonl or knockout,
and the fact that Rivers defeated Joe
Mandot, who was considered next in
line to Wolgast. would make a Rlvers
Wolgast fight almost as interesting as
one between the champion and Rivers.
It would set at rest the claims by the
two men In their former battle and
would bring the winner Into the lime
light for another championship contest

with Ritchie. It is not likely that
Ritchie will give Wolgast another
chance at the' title for some time to
come, as bis manager. Billy Nolan, Is
too wise for that. He will make hay
while the sun shines, the same as he did
when he handled Battling Nelson.
In the meantime there are several
lightweights clamoring for matches
with the new champion, among them
Packey McFarland, Jack Britton, Joe
Mandot and Freddy Welsh. Packey
McFarland has done the right thing and
at the right time by coming oat in a
signed statement, to the effect that
he considers Ritchie the best boy in
the country today at 133 pounds, which
he has demonstrated he can make.
Packey also states that in his opinion
Ritchie had Wolgast beaten when the
foul was committed. He now asks that
Ritchie agree to meet him at 135 pounds
instead of 133 ringside as the American
weight call3 for. Britton would also

Hughey Jennings is going to handle

If Harvard students failed to make
any demonstration immediately follow

have been "cutting up" even since.
The "cuttln up" has consisted of

on benches, desks and window- sills.
Sever hall is said to have hardly a
bench or desk which does not display a
28 to 0 carved Jn the wood. Theodore
Roosevelt's initials are surrounded
with the legend "2JO-0" and one man
left a benediction. "God bless Brick

Williams, of Washington, will be in
more games next season than he was
in this. In fact, Williams would have
caught in comparatively few games but
for the fact that Henry and Ainsmlth
were incapacitated, yet he has shown
