SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov.
19. —A bandaged hand beckoned
the interviewer into the room. In
a chair sat a little German boy
with his feet elevated on a box,
nursing two damaged list.-, sus
tained during a recent gymna
sium try-out.
The boy was Ad Wolgaat,
world's lightweight champion.
Thanksgiving day on the out
skirts of San Francisco he'll de
fend his title from Willie Ritchie,
the best fighter and boxer he has
met since he took the title from
Battling Nelaon almost throe
years ago.
He brought his feet down to
the floor and spoke slowly and
carefully:
"I am not going to be cham
pion of the world forever. Even
now I am not the same fighter I
was a year ago. It would be
foolish to say I am. I never kid
myself. We mlgiht as well look
at It squarely and honestly. I
will probably never be as good
again as I was a year ago—ju3t
before that operation for appen
dicitis.
"Some day I am going up
against a fellow who will take
my title away from me."
Wolgast stopped talking a mo
ment, stuck his Jaw out pugnaci
ously, uppercut the air with a
bandaged mitt and remarked
grimly:
"But you can belt your last
cent that I will 'go down fight
ing. The winner will earn what
he gets alright, and, furthermore,
I haven't yet seen the fellow who
can down me."
Wolgast lapsed Into silence
again and when urged to talk
about Ritchie, he told, calmly and
without hesitation, his opinion
of the boy wihom experts declare
has an even chance to grab tne
title from him.
"Ritchie Is afraid of me. He
gave me a hard fight when I was
sick and convalescent from a big
operation. He will find It dif
ferent now. But, anyhow, if I
