BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE BASEBALL
Coulon Draws With Frankie Burns
Pelkey is Acquitted.
Johnny Coulon is not head and
shoulders above the other bantams
today, following his fight .with
Frankie Burns of Jersey City at Ke
nosha last night.
At the end of the tenth round the
majority of the experts at the ring
side handed in a draw verdict One
or two even claimed the Easterner
had a Blight margin on points over
the pride of Logan Square.
Coulon did not open up. He
was fighting with the match with
Kid Williams before his eyes. He
took no chances. In the last
three rounds he held on desper
ately, imprisoning his opponent's
right arm whenever he got the
chance. Toward the close of the
tenth he cut loose with a rally, but
it was futile.
Neither boy was badly marked.
The affair was too much of a boxing
match for that, but even so the fans
got their fill. A more even bout has
seldom been seen in a ring here
abouts. Hook's, uppercuts and jabs
were exchanged freely and there
were few real swings.
At the final gong Coulon was the
more tired of the two. If the scrap
had gone 20 rounds it is probable the
Jersey lad would have won.
Coulon is not ready for the shelf.
He was fighting his first real battle
against a real pug since his illness,
and made a good a showing as could
be expected. If Kid Williams expects
to find something soft he will be

Joe Berger, utility infielder of the
White Sox, ran the gantlet of the
fans' roasts and jeers in the second
game yesterday, stbod the gaff like a
veteran, and at the finish of the 12
inning battle had become a popular
Too much cannot be said in praise
of Berger. He went through a terrific
hazing and came out with colors fly
ing. Joe replaced Morris Bath at sec
ond base when the Browns went to
bat in th second inning. The first
hitter pushed a grounder toward sec
ond and the coast whirlwind mussed
up the soak, then threw it over
Chase's Jiead, the boot giving the
runner two bases. That was a bad
start and the fans immediately made
Joe the target for their abuse.
At bat it was the same thing. The
first two times he faced Hamilton he
fanned. The third time he popped a
puny foul to the first baseman. Men
were on base on two of these occa
sions and Berber's failure to deliver
did not improve the temper of the
