Should Be That Between Joe
Mandot and Ad Wolgast
* in New Orleans.
Scheme to Be Devised to Make'
Them Hold to Foreign
Special Dispatch to Tte Star.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., October 'J8.?
What should prove one of the best ten- !
round bouts of the season will take
place at New Orleans November *, when
Ad Wo'gast, the lightweight champion
of the world, and Joe Mandot, the
southern champion, meet in the open
air at the base ball park under the
ausp ces of the West S de Athletic Club,
controlled by Dominick J. Tortorich and
R. J. Ruprich The only regret is that
the tight is not over the marathon distance
instead of the half-way post, as
there is little chance of the boys scoring
a knockout in the ten rounds of
fighting, unless it should be the result
of a wild swing or something of that
kind. As to physical condition, there
is little to choose between them, the
shade, if there is any, perhaps being
with Mandot. The operation which
Wolgast underwent at L?os Angeles left
him lt9 mark, hut A?l assures me that
he has entirely recovered from the effects
of it now, and will be as hardy
and strong as ever. His bout in Philadelphia
th*? other night did not show
the Michigan bearcat at his best, but
the chances are that the champion was
not working at full blast, although
there was no reason why he should not
do so. Mandot, on the other hand,
fought about the same time against his
former sparring partner, Joe .Sherman,
and beat him in a nice and gentlemanly
way. It will be the boxer against the
fighter, and in a short bout the boxer
should stand an excellent chance of
holding his own. or even better. This
fight me^ns a lot to Ad. and he is not
goln?? to take any chances. lie may
rush, and all that, but it is a good
gamble, that he will be careful that the
Southern boy does not get an openins
to hand over one of those right crosses
for a knockout.
Wolgast does not mind the left jab
so much, as he hcures he can always take
a punch of that kind to land one. and if
he can land his own left theing left-handed
naturally) lie savs the exchange is all
in nts favor, iiannui, wtin nis pousnea
left jab. should bo abb to work at long
range and outpoint his opponent in a
short bout. Of cuUMf Jno will bo the
same as every other iroxer in a match
of this kind: he will alwavs be thinking
that he is meeting a champion and will
be willing to hold his own thereby
throwing away openings if they are presented
If Mandot will only box cleverly.
in the manner he is capable of. \Vultra*
t will have a hard time getting tne
decision, but if he gets the idea into his
head that lie will be satisfied with a
draw, then the champion will have the
edge from the start. Mandot will no
doubt figure that his condition will be
superior to that of Wolgast and allow
the champion to set the pace for the first
five rounds, relying upon his own stamina
"to make a hurricane finish. Then
again if he follows that course he may
be fooled, for Wolga*t, if h's condition
permits, is a bearcat for that kind of
game. It will all depend on condition,
and that is what Mr. Mandot will have
to learn durng the first half of the battle?whether
the champion can travel the
!fet half at a rapid pace. Comparing the
t\V> boys on their showing against Joe
Rivers, it Is a toss-up between them.
Wolgast gets credit for a knockout over
Rivers in the thirteenth round, but ther<
have been so many arguments about it
being the result of a foul when the two
boys fell, or accident,' that the champion
does not get full credit for scoring a
knockout. Man?iot however, scored a
clean-cut victory over Rivers In tht
twenty rounds and had a'l the better ol
the flglit, while in the bout with Wolgasi
the little California boy was giver
credit for having the ben of the champion
In a majority of the rounds. It it

and like your pop hadn't wasted his 1
money on you? Don't It? !
And then to think there are people who
can't tell the difference between a class 1
at "yell" and a band of lunatics at play. 1
It's sad. But we can't help that; we can ]
onlv be sorry for such people. They ain't :
got no educat on nohow! If they did <
they would see the advantage of a col- <
lege course Little do they realize the 1

and tne days of practice necessary to t <
J reach such a high state of achievement I
Nor do they ever think of the lengthy 1:
about between the promoters of the
various countries where boxing bouts
are held Is almost a certainty now.
The matter has been given considerable
attention of late by the interested parties
In this country. England. France
and Australia, and all seem to favor the
proposition. Col. Dyer of London sends
he writer the following Information
anent the proposition, which will be interesting
to the followers here: "Victor
Breyer, president of the Societe de
la Boxe Anglaise of Paris, recently
Journeyed to New York primarily to
represent France at the cycling events,
but while in America's premier city
he managed ?r says he has fixed up a
working agreement wi.h the New York
commission by which each of the bodies
will recognize each other's suspensions.
This step may prove to be the first
toward an international board of control
for professional boxing, and it
would help the game considerably if
other states in America would get to 1
work and legalise the sport, the same t
as is done in New York. Victor Breyer t
is am ardent a??Vocate of the interna- .
tional scheme and has great hopes of
getting the London National Sporting 1
Club to move in the matter here. He ?
has already approached the club man- t
ager, who has promised to lay the
matter before the club committee. If
the N. S. C. can be brought to father '
the scheme In this country it will go t
a long way toward its ultimate sue- t
cess. It will be remembered that when. c
two years ago, T. S. Andrews and Wll- .
Ham Will of London drafted a similar ?
scheme the N. S. C. declined to have I
anything to do with it. on the grounds : r
that it did not command the support of 1 f
any outside organisation. though i.
warmly welcomed and well thought of
by various promoters and people in- !
terested in boxing in all quarters of ' (
the globe. Now that Breyer has taken i s
the matter in hand, backed by the j j
powerful Societe de la Boxe of Paris. t
; which controls the game in France, I (
| something may be done to place the ; t

lish it as a world-wide pastime. Aus- '
tralia will also have to be included, and
later on Denmark and other countries j
which are only just taking up the came, i j
A deal of spade work will be required
before the board can be of any effective ,
use, but when it does I prophesy a big
future for it. One of its flrfit duties '
will be to fix a standard set of weights
for world's championships, a difficult
task to begin with, but by a little glv- .
ing and taking this should not be an
unsurmountable object. France has al- j
j ready accepted the British scale of
I weights, and. like this country, has
; abolished ringside weighing. This latter
item is one that should be enforced
in every country."
It is up to the promoters themselves
to get busy and arrange for a convention
for suehNa purpose. A meetftig could be '
called for either in Paris or London for ,
next spring, each country sending dele- ,
gates with power to act. Let the big j
promoters of the states select two or.
more delegates to attend such a meet- ;
ing and they will be starting in the right j |
direction. It would be easier to get j
Americans to attend the convention in '
Ix>ndon or Paris than it would be to get I
those countries to send delegates here to i
New York or Chicago. Australia would
no doubt send a delegate with power to
a< t. With an organization of that kind
i established It would help the boxing
i game all over the world.
There seems to bo a general misunderstanding
regarding the question of welter- k
I weight champion. When Kid McCoy and
Tommy Ryan lirst began to star they
were the real goods around the 144-pound
notch, and it was Tommy who claimed
the title at that mark. It shifted between
144 and 14a ringside and Joe Walcott, who
held the champ.onshlp for a number of
years, also defended it at that weight.
Honey Mellody and Jimmy Gardner also
held it around that tlgure or at 142
pounds at 3 o'clock. The weight lias '
never been changed, and American boxers
for the past twenty years have recognized i
that weight at legitimate. Jimmy Olabby
fought Jimmy Gardner at that weight at
New Orleans, and when Mellody was out
of it and Gardner too heavy Clabby
claimed the title, defend.ng it against ail
corners. Mike Gibbons fought Clabby
three times, but never at the welterweight
limit, and therefore he could not
claim the title even if he had bea'en
Clabby. which he did not do; Jimmy
winning the first, and the last two be ng
no-declslon affairs. The title was claimed
for Gibbons when Clabby announced his
determination to enter the middleweight
ranks, but it could not hold, as Mike lias
not been able to make the required
weight. At the same time Ray Bronson.
tiie Indianapolis boxer, who advanced
from the lightweight class, laid claim
to the title and backed it up with an oner
o defend it against all comers at 142
pounds at 3 o'clock or 145 pounds ringside.
Not only that, but lie posted $1,OUO
to back up his cla m. Since Bronson
, claimed the title another formidable can,
didate has sprung up?Wildcat Ferns of
Kansas 'City, managed by Jimmy Hurst?
| and he is sure some wildcat. They met
, in an eight-round bout at St. Louis and
, it was a wild and woolly fight with hon[
ors even, accord ng to the various re.
ports, and both boys claiming the shade.

and numerous forms of training that the
voice must be subjected to to attain good
school work.
Why, nowadays, the fellow who leads
the class in "yell ng" is the main event;
the fellow who leads the class in philosophy
doesn't even figure with him. The
yell leader is a 'big guy around the nooile
filler; he is more important than a
eheck from home. He is a big buy at
home, too.
The old folks usually receive letters like
this. "Dear Folks: I am the big noise
here at school. I am at the head of my
:lass and lead them in everything."
You can't blame the old folks, can
you? Such is the way of a yell leader.

Today there are no less than fifteen men (

itar game at right guard, wrenched J
lis ankle last Thursday, Blewett sprained j
lis ankle in Saturday's game, Magill and i
Clancy have torn ligaments in their arms J}
ind Torris and Wymard have injured

McGraw Plans to Buy Town for the
PAiJO, Tex., October 28.-An agent
of the New York Giants Is here trying
to buy a Texas town for the ball players'
annual spring training. John McGraw's
representative is in EI Paso, according
to real estate men. attempting to buy
the town site of Do bo. Tex., about a hundred
miles east of El Paso, for the train
ing headquarters. Lobo is one of the
numerous new towns In west Texas that
real estate men have tried hard to put
on the map as a metropolis. A big new
hotel, a handsome brick structure, was
butlt and some cottage were erected by
the company, but the town did not grow.
The town site is a beautiful level spot
and would make a splendid training location.
One of McGraw'a friends saw the
place and tipped it off, and the deal at
once was started. The hotel and cottages
would make splendid quarters for the
players and newspaper men. The climate

Mcintosh Buys Vaudeville Circuit.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. October 28.?
Hugh G. Mcintosh, the Australian promoter
of boxing contests, has gone into a
new venture. He has bought outright a
large vaudeville circuit. Now he can play
both ends against the middle; manage
and employ fighters, make new champions.
and send the new champions "out

If there's any loose money left in Australia
when Mr. Mcintosh gets through
it'll be u wonder.

These statements are made upon the
best of authority. Cobb recently confided
his intentions to a close friend of his
in this city. Cobb said that he would
take definite action before Thanksgiving
and that he had every reason to believe
that the action would be quitting base
ball. Cobb's contract with the Detroit
Tigers expired October 1ft. It had been
made three years ago and called for an
annual stipend of $0,000. Cobb notified
President Frank J. Navln in Detroit this
week that he deeired a contract for three
years and the figures must be $15,000 per
season, or $45,000 for the full period.
While In New York recently Cobb was
offered the position of cotton broker by
the Wall street firm. He is considering
the offer and has notified the Detroit club
'hat unless he receives u contract soon

Big Georgetown Tackle May
Not Be Able to Play Because
of Injuries.
Now that the hardest game on the
Georgetown schedule has been played the
coaches will begin the task of getting the
men In shape for the game with Virginia
November 16.
Every man on the Georgetown squad
with the exception of George Rheincblld,
the big tackle, came out of the game Saturday
In the best of shape. Rhelnchlld, "
It is understood, has two fractured ribs .
which might keep him out for the rest
of the year. He Is to undergo an examination
today to determine whether or not

are now considered. Rhelnchlld will be

Petritz and Heiskell are the two men to
be considered for this position. Then
again Tormey, who has been on the hos- s

today, and it is possible that he might be a

it this position when he injured his knee.
At Dean Academy Tormey played a stellar
game at tackie, and the coaches have
el great deal of faith in his ability to
make good at this important position,

The team will go to Richmond next
Saturday and play North Carolina.
Georgetown should win this game without
much difficulty, as it is understood
that this institution is not as strong
as in former years. The coaches intend
to bring the team along slowly now,
and to have it in the very best of shape
when it meets its ancient rival, Virginia,
so that they are not looking for a big

that it will show to its. best.

Virginia Petritz, who replaced Rltch a
Saturday, showed up very well, and will o
surely be in the line-up when the 13
whistle blows for the starting of the 0
Virginia game. Ritch while in the game *
Saturday did well, but when young ?
Petritz was sent Into the fray at the t
beginning of the second half he played c
the better game. Petritz passed the ball F
with accuracy, and on the defense he t
was all over the field. It is the opinion a
of all those connected with the George- t
town eleven that Petritz will be used I
at center from now on. Coach Gargan c
was very much pleased with the work t
of Petritz Saturday, and it is his opinion I

The District Tenpln League has finally ts
leen the error of its way in barring ai
iarry Krauss from its membership, and
i team from the Palace, rolling under
hat name, will finish out the schedule in
hat organization vacated by the with
Irawal of the Saengerbund quint. Around ! E
his announcement is woven the story j
if most of the trouble that has beset the b!
eapin followers of this city in the past e
ew years, and out of which has arisen M
i condition of affairs which has brought Ji
he big pin sport almost to its grave. n'
ts has been repeatedly stated, and as is
ilmost universally admitted. Harry tj
Crauss is the best bowler in this city, ci
rrom the time five or six years ago a'
rhen he came into prominence in bowling ^
drcles in Washington until the present
ime there have been few who could give jn
he "flying Dutchman" anything re- st
embling a contest for big pin supremacy, le
md as a consequence in the leagues in
vhich he contested he carried off high ^
lonors. A few disgruntled bowlers, feel- w
pg about for some means to eliminate
Crauss from competition in the leagues, tf
Lnally had adopted a rule prohibiting
'managers of bowling alleys" from roll- h)
ng in the District Deague. As Krauss
vas connected with one of the local
klleys, this was a palpable thrust at him,
Jid when it carried the Fat Men. team, b(
if which he was a member, also withIrew
from the league. Since then the d
i'.d tenpln organization has done anyhine
else but prosper, and the bad feel
ng engendered at the time has put the IT
tig pin game almost on the shelf. Re- ,
ent developments In the District League
irompted. the officials to ask the Palace .

Brown of the alleys agreed to do ..

Crauss was removed. This request was ;
