The second boy was more exact. He
said on returning that it was three
minutes pust 12. He became a doctor.
The third lad looked at the clock,
found out how long it hail taken him
to walk back to the house, returned to
the clock, then added the time of his
walk to the time of the clock and re
ported the result thus: "It is at this

Nelson 's Next Fight.
Must Choose Between Britt
and Gardner The Dane
By THOMAS F. CLARK.
For his next opponent Battling Nel
son will choose between Jimmy Britt
and Jimmy Gardner.
Immediately after the recent botit
with Britt. Nelson said that he would
fight Gardner, but that the weight must
be satisfactory. This mean), or, rather.
Nelson said, 130 pounds ringside.
Nelson fought Britt at 133 pounds.
but it must be remembered that Britt
bad the -ace in the bole" and dictated
the terms. The Battling one can do 130
pounds at a pinch, and. being in charge
for the present of the lightweight cham
pionship, he can Juggle the weights to
suit himself. In doing so he is perfect
ly right. It Isn't on record that a fight
er flush from a great victory failed to
dictate terms. Nelson is king, and be
can justly reap the golden harvest so
long delayed. His slogan will be "Steer
clear of Gardner, unless Gardner will
consent to a weight that will ruin him
for fighting purposes."
As far as Nelson's next fight is con
cerned it is safe to bet that Jimmy
Britt will be his opponent. There is
money in Britt, and if he and Nelson
were to hook up again in the next three
months it is almost a certainty that
the native son would enter the ring a
slight favorite. Although beaten deci
slvely by the durable Dane.-the Califor-
nians are willing to take "Brother Wil
lie's" version of the affair a chance
blow. The Califoruians are long on
lucky punches and chance blows, espe
cially whenever a native sou figures In
the losing end. and they are willing to
believe that Jeems Edgar was the vic
tim of a wild wallop. After the fight
Willie Britt gave out the following:
"Jimmy was winning hands down
when that wild, crazy wallop arrived
and sent him to the sleep counter, lie
would have surely finished Nelson in
Callfornians say that Britt made a
serious mistake in mixing matters with
the Dane. They argue that he should
have adopted his old tactics of hit and
get away, using his superior speed and
foot work, continuing to be a boxer
Instead of a fighter. But it is hard to
take Jeers and catcalls. Whenever
Britt fought after his most effective
fashion sneering voices would cry out
with the effect of pouring vinegar into

wounds, "That's It; run away, Brittl"
And a champion is not supposed to run
away. When Britt did try to do the
boxing stunt at times Nelson refused
to allow him to go through the sprint
ing stunt. He was light on top of him
all the time, and what can a tighter do
with a human machine coming with no
let up? Many times Britt resorted to
clinching to stem the Inevitable tide of
defeat, but It was right here that Nel
son was really brilliant. In close quar
ters there Is no man within ten pounds
of his weight that can compete with
him. Some say that Nelson is easy to
hit. Well, he Is, but not in close. He
covers up nicely when In u clinch and
has a right upper cut that is hard to
avoid. Britt might have delayed mat
ters by sprinting, but the defeat was
When Britt and Nelson meet again
the latter will dictate the terms of bat
tle, and it Is needless to say that he
will ask for as many rounds as pos
sible. Britt was the vanquished, and
he must take what Is offered or retire
to the woods. As matters stand he will
take what Is In sight. He firmly be
lieves that he had a chance with the
strenuous youth and that another fight
will bring forth another result.
In regard to the punching ability of
the men there is no choice. Britt can
hit Just as hard as Nelson. It is In the
receiving end that he is lacking. As
an illustration of how Nelson can
punch take the sixth round. In "that
act the Dane landed lefts and rights
so many times that it was impossible
to count them. Still Britt was on his
feet and was never sent down for the
count. Now, If Nelson had been a
puncher he would have ended the
agony in the sixth. The same applies
to Britt. lie landed enough punches
on the Dane to whip a dozen men, but
never caused him to lose his aggres
siveness. Nelson won simply because
he Is a wonder when it comes to as
similating punishment. Nothing comes
too hard for the boy from Uegewisch,
while Britt cannot take the grueling
