Wlllard Favorite
.. i. tt,A rnrisensus of opinion of tho
nMerous experts that Wlllard will ho an
iT winner over Moran, hut there nro a
In the minority who talco tho opposite
itar The champion has tho advnntago
7 .',. .neh nnd wpltrht. hilt Afnrnn
i.. that dogged determination, gameness
ttst handicaps, Wlllard Is 6 Inches
Vn than his opponent. Ilia reach is C
Jjches longer and ho weighs BO pounds
jaore.
!.' Tk,n It can bo seen that Jess has a
IrKnendous advantage to begin with, for
'ill height and reach will keep Jlornn
Ljjjing during the first fow rounds. Ills
lift Jab Is a wonderful defensive and of
fensive weapon, for ho can hold It out
.,.ih nnd keen Moran at a safo dls-
fine1 while ho Inflicts terrlbto punish
ment. If wlllaru couiu ianu ins lert
continuously tho challenger would not get
clow enough to oven touch him. Tho
additional G Inches in rench would make
imi battle look llko ono between n war-
-,(hlp carrying guns that will kill nt 20
miles against imo ihiuipijuu mm Kuns nui
"ran carry but IB miles.
5 But this does not mean thnt Wlllard
.ill not bo hit. Thero Is such n thine
si dodging blows In tho ring, nnd Moran
Is' one. of tho cutest little dodgers in tho
Imlness. He will get Insldo of Wlllard's
left leads, and when ho does, ho will land
t few. punches wnicn nro imeiy to siialto
the champion.
'Jess' Defense
Much has been written about Wlllard's
defense. Kxuberant boosters have watch
ted the tltleholder In his training bouts
iTflth Hemplo and Walter Monlhnn nnd
then declnred that Jess cannot possibly
jfce hit. That is truo when ho boxes with
his sparring partners. Ho has been work
ing with this pair for nearly two years,
W knows their every move. Jess nn
itlclpates every lead they make and for
that reason looks good In practice. '
We watched Wlllard lox last Thursday
.and his work was excellent against Ilem-
pl and Monlhan. But when ho mixed
with Boer Rodell, n ham boxer who has
:been with him for only two weeks, It was
a different Btory. Tho Boer landed many
'telling blows on tho Jaw nnd body and
'seemed to have little difficulty In pene
trating thnt mucli-advertlscd defense.
Eodel Is eight Inches shorter, weighs
about ISO pounds and worked mora like
champion than tho big fellow.
Now, If Ilodel can hit Wlllard. what
will Jlornn be nblo to do? Ifranlc says
he can defeat any man that ho can lilt.
;will he bo ablo to hit Wlllard hard
enough to measure lilm longitudinally on
the floor for 10 seconds? It Is this un
certainty that has mada tho big battlo
"such an Interesting affair.
Moran Wide Open
Then wo can tnko a look at Moran.
He Is ono of the most open lighters In tho
business and can bo hit with lltlo trou
ble. In nil of his previous bouts ho has
been willing to take seven or eight punch-
Kes to land ono. Coffey batered him all
over the ring for eight rounds In tho last
'fuss and had a big lead on points before
Frank slipped over tho sleep-producing
wallop.
Wlllard will bo ablo to do tho same
thing as Coffey. Ho should land many
Wows with his long left it ho carries tho
ifight to his opponent and jab Moran's
head oft beforo tho bout has progressed
(Yery far. Moran stands with his left
stretched out like a man groping for
'something In tho dark and seems ready
,.lo push It into tho face of his foo In
stead of hitting;. His right fist Is drawn
bacK ready to let go at any Instant. Ho
K-vftrwuuo uti limb uiiu uiuw lu mil urn uni
ties. He telegraphs this blow, however.
for he Jumps forward, sets himself and
Bthtn draws back his arm. A straight left
JabVwlU stop It.
W. -Following up tho grand old dope, it
jiauat oe aamited that both men will wal
itop'each other, and it will be a question
as to who can stand tho most punishment.
Moran can take It, he has proved tlmo
ana again. But what about Wlllard? Is
it able to Btand tho gaft? Can he hit
bard enough to knock out Moran? Can
Moran hit hard enough to knock out Wll
lard? Good or Bad?

tional bouts ever staged In this country.

from Jack Johnson nnd Moran stepped
Into the limelight when he boxed 20
rounds with tho same smoke In Paris.
Johnson Is tho only criterion which can
bo used to get a line on tho contestants
tonight, nnd It seems to bo a mighty poor
tmc.
Uig Test for Jess
Jens Wlllard has moro than the title
nt Rtnko tonight. He must show tho pub
lic thnt lin Is a real fighter and not a
"cheese chnmplon." Ho cannot nfford to
win by a small margin. Hb must score a
declslvo victory or tho gate receipts at tho
circus will fall off this summer. If ho
wins by a knockout, ho will bo a greater
drawing card than over, nnd Jess wnnts
to bo a drawing card. It means nnothcr
year of soft money.
Moran has nothing to gain by stalling
through ten rounds with tho mastadonlo
champ. Ho could hnvo gono on In Now
York crabbing off big purses with the
I fifth and slxth-rato heavyweights nnd
mnko a rcspeetablo living. Ills two, vic
tories over Coffey mado him a big draw
ing card. But If ho loses, his prestlgo will
Buffer a severe blow, and It ho tries to
remain In tho ring without taking a chance
ho will bo shooed from tho Metropolis.
Tho samo Is truo of Wlllnrd.
Jess has been In but one battl In two
years, and his boxing ability Is a myster
ious quantity. Tho last tlmo ho appeared
In ,Ncw York, ho looked llko an amateur
witli a sprained anklo and broken arm,
but when ho stepped off against Johnson
ho was heralded as a master of Queens
berry tactics. Wo Will see what ho has
learned tonight.
Each Confident
Both men are on edge for tho bout, nnd
each Ih confident of victory. Wlllard took
a Miort walk through the park this morn
ing, and then retired to his room. Ho
f.aid that he would win and had no fears
for the outcome. Moran took his last
walk In tho Westchester roads and left
shortly after noon for Now York. He, too,
Is confident. Ho selected a qufct hotel, but
did not divulge the name, Iko Dorgan,
his manager, and Wllllo Lowls, his trainer,
accompanied him. He will nrrlvo at the
Garden at 3:30, arid be ready for the bat
tle of his life ono hour later.
Counterfeit Tickets
It was learned yesterday that counter
felt tickets for the Wlllard-Moran bout
have beon printed, and thnt Now York
men had gono to Boston, Philadelphia and
cities In Connecticut to dlsposo of the
pasteboards,
They are not admission tickets, but
tickets supposed to bo redeemable- at the
Madison Square Garden ticket office for
admission tickets. The management of
tho Garden stated last night that no such
ticket had been Issued, and warned pa
trons against tho counterfeits.

Braves Find Athletics Easy
Prey in Two Games
of Series
NO MORNING PRACTICE
MIAMI. Fla., March 26. The Athletics
played such a listless, Indifferent gnmo
against tho Braves yesterday that Harry
Davis, who has charge of tho squad, de
cided that thero would bo no morning
practice todny. Some of the boys con
tended that the hnrd work-out yesterday
morning took the snap out of them. After
Thursday's gamo tho contention was that
they had not had enough batting prnctlco,
and missed tho morning work-out.
To the outsider it looks as If tho team
Is Just naturally lacking In ginger, No
one expects tho Mackmen to defeat tho
Braves with only threo dnys' prnctlco
prior to tho opening of tho serlc3, but tho
men could nt least show somo light. Prom
start to finish of both games, not a man
on tho team, bnrrlng tho catchers, has
shown any signs of ginger. Xot a sound
comes from tho bench and ono cannot help
but notlco tho ottonco nnd apparent lnck
of nplrlt.
On tho other hand, tho Braves nro lust
as noisy as over. Stalllngs' team seems
to cany its nolso too far and Is still rid
ing opposing players, oven though they
must know that tho Mackmen, In their
prcsont condition, have no chanco for vic
tory and that theto Is nothing In par
ticular at stako In this series.
Battle for Jobs
Perhaps tho great fight going on for
Bovcrnl positions In tho Boston line-up Is
causing tho unusual display of pepper;
nt any rato thero Is no hnppy medium for
tho Braves.
"Bed" Smith Is having a great fight on
his hands to keep Fltzpatrlck from taking
his position at third base; whllo Snod
grass Is likely to bo takon out at any tlmo
In favor of Poto Compton or IJddlo Col
lins, who was with tho Pirates last sea
son. Hank Gowdy has a split linger nnd.
Judging by tho way Trngessor, a Southern
Leaguer, and Blnckburn, n recruit from
Indianapolis, nro playing, tho world's
series hero, who played poor ball last
season, will have to return to his 1914
form to hold tho first catching position.

nro certainties, with Bculbncli, Bngon,
Allen, Strand and Davis battling for the
two extra positions.
Mnckies Improve
Although the Brnvcs defeated the Mack
men more decisively In tho second gamo
of tho scries, Stalllngs' team did not look
qulto so good. The first gamo of tho
scries enabled Harry Davis to slzo up
tho Boston batters, nnd Myers nnd Nnhora
pitched better to tho weakness of sovernl
men.
Though the Braves have gotten 1G runs
nnd 22 hits In tho two games played to
date, it really has not been tho fault
of tho hurlers that tho games havo been
lost by such largo scores. Tho fielding
of tho Mackmen has beon wretched, nnd
the Braves also 'have gotten wonderful
breaks. Seldom does a team get ns many
lluky baso hits 011 successlvo days as tho
Braves did Thursday and yesterday.
No less than nlno of tho Boston hits
have been of the Iluklest variety. Sev
eral havo been duo to misunderstandings
between Mack fielders, whllo n fow moro
havo been due to tho failure of tho flotd
captain to switch his lticu according to
the batsman who Is nt the plate.
