Wcinert's Manager Ooes West

Willard Fight.
Actual nepotiations for the Willard
Weinert match will be under way
withifl a few day*. Harry Pollok. man
tper of Weinert, left for Denver ycs
teiday, where he will confer with fflBB
Willard and Tom Jone*.
Of course. Tollok would have left for
I). nver soon anyhow to superintend the
uainin-r. of Fredd.a Welsh for the
I.abor Day bout with Charlie White.
Bat Pollok'* determination to pet to ?
Pike's Peak in a l.urry was due to an (
announcement that Jess Willard would
neccpt $.'0,onn, or some such trifle, for .
a boat with Weinert.
As soon as this plad news reachf 1
Harold's widely extended ears he held
a hurried conference with Chevalier
McKetrick. The conference was held j
lehind jwinr-inp door*, but they raPB
barrad. Suddenly Pollok dashed from;
tne cafe, hurnedly packed Kreddie

Graad Central Station. He wa* last
H.en on an observation platform nit
ting to the settinp sun and wrarinp an
iir of profound mystery.
ln a farewell address to the Forty
*.cond Street Kej-iment of N'ew York
thl promoter said: "I am dead senous
about that Willard matter. I am sure
that Weinert has more than an even
('fiiince to rr.ake some impression on the
big fellow. Anyho-.v, hfl can't be hanped
[or tryinp. It Wiilar.i is willinp, you
ci.n bet that we are. I pot word that
Willard would take the money. so now
it is up to the I'envi-r people."
Wemcit was ordered ;.' hold himself
in rradiness to prah a rattler for the
West. It all rest* now with Eddie ,
Pitta, the Denver promoter. Willard
will want to take a peoK at his roil be?
fore ho quit* the sawdust nnp, which
netl him about MM a week. But Jack
Curley, one of his assistant manapcrs,
has intimated to Pollok that Willard
likes to pet $50,000 purses all at once,
and that as far a* he | Curley i Is con
cerncd he would bn eharmed to hear
that Je*a had spned articles. Tom
Jone* also approve* of Willard boxing
when h.' gfltfl SoO.ono for an evrninp.
This is just a little more than Kickard
paid him for the bout with Moran.

While in th* act of joshing Connie Mack it ii just ai well to remember
that he is the only leader in baseball who has won six pennanti and three world
Also, that for four years he was berated for having a ball club too atrong

Red Sox at Home.
The Bed Sox are now facing s fairly extendid home itay of rital im
As (arrlgan's club spend most of September ln the West, the hour is now
ripe to get a running start on friendly eod, and so prepare for any trouble that
n.ay follow later on.
To carry a first class chance the Red Sox must atart West in September
with a fair lead, for, while they are facing Thicago, Cleveland, St. Louii and
Detroit those last thr*e weeks, the White Sox at home will be ahooting at the
Maekmen, Yanks and Nationals-which is eomething else again.
Boston has been powerful at home ever since Carrigan's pitching staff

Within the next fortnight or so the lawn tennis test is to outline the
American champion for 1916. ?,.?.?
Just at thi, juncture it seem* to be a matter of Johnston vs Williams.
, This doe, dorsn't mean of necessity that this pair will meet in the final round.
j But it means that one of the two is pretty sure to rcaeh the hnal round, and
' having gotten that far, to win.
Fhere are other tennis players capable of beat-ng either man at odd m
