Promises Second Fight if American Loses. New York, Feb. 1 5. In view of the refusal of Luther McCarty. through hia manager. William McCarney, to accept an offer from Billy Gibson, manager of the Garden Athelt'c club, to box Bombardier Wells, the British heavyweight champion, in Madison Square Garden, Wells' manager, James Maloney, gave out a statement In which he says that Wells, having come here on the understanding that McCarty would be willing to sign for a match, he, Maloney, will now agree to take 55 per cent of the gross re ceipts and will guarantee McCarty 9 10.000 in cash the moment he steps Into .the ring with Wells in Madison Square Garden. "Anv s;ne person." say3 Maloney, "knows that it is better to accept $10,000 for a ten round bout than fcr twenty or twenty-five round, bout, for there is less chance of defeat. For that reason I can not see how McCarty can refuse this offer to box the British champion, who was de feated last year by Palzer. Promise film Second Fight. "If McCarty should be outpointed. According to the opinion of critics and In the absence of a decision in the Garden, we will also agree to fight him twenty rounds or more in Cali fornia on a winner take all with a $5,000 side bet. , "Wells is open to meet any man in the world, white or black, McCarty preferred. We are going to wait a few days for a definite answer from McCarty's manager and if the Gar den Athletic club is unable to secure Gunboat Smith to box Wells we will go out on the road and publicly chal lenge McCarty in every big city where he Is showing. Wells wants to prove that he is the best heavy weight in the world and we take this : means of proving to the American j sporting public we mean business." NOT YET, SAYS J. COUIiOS. Bantam Champ Not Ready to Sleet Kid Williams. Chicago. Feb. .15. Johnny Coulon doesn't know yet. The bantamweight champion has received some more telegrams from Tom McCarey of Los Angeles regarding a battle with Kid Williams, winner of the battle there Wednesday afternoon, but so far has refrained from answering them Johnny had another long conference with his physician. Dr. Stober, re carding his 'condition, and the doctor told him to keep on working along, I hut to dodge any long battles for at .' least a couple of months, first find ing out how he was going to stand a "You may be there strong and you ' may not." the doctor said. "The only s way you can discover is to keep on.' working and then to get into some thort battles which will give you a pretty good test. You seem to be sound enough, but it takes a real bat tle to tell." This wasn't very satisfactory to the Logan Square boy, but he is going to act on the advice. "It's a certainty Williams and I will do battle, but how soon I can not tell now," he said. ."I'm working right along and will go a little harder gradually. Then I will take some ehort fights and see how I stand the grind. Until then I can not tell any thing about a long fight with Wil liams. "One thing is sure they are not going to rush me into a hard fight until I am good and ready." Los Angeles, Feb. 15. Although tiantamweight champion, Johnny Coulon, had pledged himself to meet the winner of the Williams-Campi battle, it is predicted in coast boxing circles that the Chicago boy will find some excuse to cancel the April date. Sammy Harris, manager for John ny Williams, is responsible for the general belief that Coulon fears the Baltimore youngster. "We have left $5,000 of our money with Promoter T. J. McCarey," said Harris. "This sum goes as a present to Coulon the minute he signs to box "Williams a twenty round bout for th world's title.

S. K? R AsVU LW afsri Left to right: Jem Driscoll, Four renowned European pugilists I intend soon to invade our shores, j Bombardier Wells, Great Britain's best heavyweight; Chef Ledoux, French bantam champion; Jem Driscoll Eng lish contender for the featherweight championship, and George Carpenter, ex-champion middleweight of Europe, compose the quartet. The arrival of these renowned pugil ists will be hailed with joy by Ameri can fistic fans. With McCarty and Willie Ritchie on the vaudeville stage and Kilbane's championship argument with Dundee two months away, there seems to be little doing in a big way so far as American fighters are con- cerned. The coming of the foreign pugs will put ginger into the game. When Bombardier Wells came to America a year ago he impressed the RECORD BROKEN. HH ose Heaves 24 Pound Shot 39 Feet Inch, San Francisco, Feb. 15. One world's record and three Pacific coast records were broken at the annual indoor track and fieid meet of the Pastime Athletic club here last night. Ralph Rose threw the 24 pound shot 39 feet Vt, inch. The previous score, 38 feet 10 11-16 Inches was made by Pat McDonald, Irish-American Ath letes club. New York. Robert V.

George Horine, of Stanford university, made S2 feet 64 inches in three standing broad jumps. This is one foot more than his old distance. FIVE YARD RILE IS GONE.

Only minor changes were made in the foottwll rules by the amalgamated intercolle giate and old rules committees at their session here last night.

His de feat by Al Palzer dimmed his glory somewhat, but Wells' friends are not willing to agree that his defeat proved conclusively his inferiority to the Iowan. A few weeks later the English man knocked out Tom Kennedy in eight rounds, showing wonderful form. Wells is anxious to meet any or all of the American heavies, including Mc Carty. Ledoux came to America last 1-... in search of a world's championship. He lost two of four bouts, showing that we have better bantam fighters on the side. However, he is a game battler, and no doubt will garner many Ameri can dollars. Carpentier no doubt harbors a secret hope to re-establish himself as a mid dleweight of championship caliber. In striking a goal or obstruction in end zone was amended to exclude case& in which a team attempts to forward pass from behind its own goal line. Rule 6, section 2, was amended to allow snapping the ball only with the hands, eliminating the words "with the foot." The five yard restriction on a kick has been removed, allowing a quick kick from behind the scrimmage line. The penalty for not reporting a sub stitute player to an official was re duced from fifteen to five yards and the illegal return of a player to the game will in the future incur dis qualification of the player and a loss of half the distance to the goal line from the team.

Our old friend "Noisy" Bill Rapps, who played in bygone years in the out field for Leavenworth and Oklahoma City has been signed for the first base job for the Kaws. William will be re membered as a peppery chap, who was famous in these parts before Doc Shively was separated from his West ern Association meal ticket. He has played first base for the Portland club in the Pacific Coast League for four years and his club has finished well most of the time. He isn't a young ster nor a .300 hitter, he hit .244 last year, but he's a good ball player and more fun than Bill Dwyer used to be. Another Kaw trade is In the air and will 'likely be announced as soon as waivers are secured. The manager de clines to discuss it at present. It is rumored, however, that this Is the King trade, mentioned in this column some time ago.

There seems to be no particular reason why- English boxers should last longer than American. But they do. It isn't anything uncommon for an English pug to stick to the game fif teen years. How many American fighters can you think of who have lasted more than seven or eight? Johnny Summers and Jem Driscoll, who are respectively the welterweight and the featherweight champions of Europe, have been in the game since 1900. They are still going and ap parently have several years apiece yet in the fistic arena. Owen Moran has been in the game thirteen years and is still a lightweight of renown in Great Britain. Digger Stanley has been meeting all comers since 1901, and is still in shape. Freddie Welsh, after eight years of battle, is light weight champion of England.
