Lajoie broke into fast company when
he was 21 years of age. He had fairly
broken up the New England league as
a member of the Fall River team, when
the Phillies netted him. He played
five seasons for the Quakers, hitting as
b.gh as .379 and never lower than. 32S.
In 1901, daring the war between the
major leagues, Lajoie, with a bunch of
his teammates, jumped to the rival
Athletics. That was the best season
of his career, for in 131 games he
bagged away at a .422 clip. The
Phillies, in the meantime, went to the
ourts and secured an injunction to
prevent the "deserters" spearing with
the Athletics. It was finally decided

Then there are others who never
succeed in striking the popular chord,
even though their ring careers are
brilliant. When Jimmy Britt was in
the heyday of his career and winning
every start, he was one of the most
cordially disliked boxers who ever
'claimed San Francisco as home. The
antipathy to Britt was intense, and
the majority of those who went" to see
him box did so with the hope that he
vourd be soundly thrashed. He never
knew popularity in his home town un
til he had tasted defeat.

in New York to that Britt held in San

Cross is so marked that it is an ex
ceedingly difficult task to prevent the
hoodlum element from giving expres
sion to their feelings. During the pro
gress of a bout his opponent is invari
ably applauded and encouraged and
Leach reviled good and plenty, and at
times the language ,is not of the
choicest. This reverse rooting has not
seriously interfered with Cross" suc
cess, but in the opinion of the fans
that Is largely because he is a shrewd
matchmaker and has so far sidestepped
the classiest lightweights.
Cross surprised the talent by sign
ing to box the great Joe Rivers 10
rounds and when the boys step in the
ring next Tuesday night it is a cinch
that the house will be crowded to the
doors. It is the biggest attraction in
sight at the present time, ana Rivers
has created such a. favorable: impres
sion during two weeks of training that
the hopes of the "anti-Cross" contin
gent are running high.
Joe's record speaks for itself. Dur
ing the short time that he has been
boxing professionally the little Mexi
can has met and defeated a number
of classy men. As a featherweight he
won a 20-round decision over Johnny
Kilbane. but in a return match was
knocked out. At that time Joe had
outgrown the featherweight class, and
in making the weight was forced to
undergo rigorous training which
robbed him of his strength. His re
cent battles -with Ad Wolgast and Joe
Mandot established his class beyond
Those who have looked Rivers over
at the training quarters predict his
success in the Cross encounter. But
Leach, when he tries, is able 40 give a
good account of himself, and if he
gets off on the right foot, may make
things interesting for the visitor. To
give the local .man credit, it must be
said that in all his bouts during the
last year the only boxer to earn a
popular verdict over him was Jack
Brltton, and that's nothing to be
ashamed of, for Britton is ranked sec
ond only to Packy McFarland when it
comes to cleverness.
If Rivers wins decisively from Cross
it is unlikely he will be seen again in
New York for some time. He has been
offered matches with Britton and Mc
Earland, but as he has so far insisted
upon 133 ringside for 'all important
bouts, it is improbable he will agree to
concede weight to either of those
