Coulon Cancels Williams Fight
Britton-White Go On Again,
Johnny Coulon did not wait until
lie reached California to postpone his
fight -with Kid Williams. Last night
the Logan Square bantam champion
wired Promoter Tom McCarey and
asked him to set back the go with
Williams, scheduled for July 29.
Coulon plans to keep out of the
ring until Labor Day, on which date
he will probably take on the Balti
more midget. In the meantime he
will put in a couple of weeks at West
Baden and then retire to the moun
tains of California for some rough
and ready training. Boxing practice
is not what Coulon needs. He re
quires absolute rest in the open air
if h& is to build up his physique to
a point where he can stand the pace
of a championship battle.
There is a chance that the Charley
White-Jack Britton match may be
pulled off in Louisiana, July 4. White
received his railroad tickets from the
promoters yesterday and will beat it
southward tonight. It is charged that
other promoters crabbed to the gov
ernor and jollied him into ordering
the bout off. The promoters of the
Britton go threaten to defy the
Louisiana executive if he doesn't lift
the ban.
This is pretty hot weather to talk
about prize fighters and the thoughts
of two men sweating around a ring
punching each other makes us think
the thermometer is too conservative.

This guy Bay Schalk, youngest
and best catcher on the White Sox
roster, is a glutton for breaking into
print No paper can worry along for
more than two or three dayB without
mentioning the name of the Litch
field, Dl., phenom in connection with
some flossy play. Ray doesn'thank
er after the publicity and is juBt as
well satisfied without it but he pulls
so many great stunts that he can't
be overlooked by the newspapers, or
the sheets owned by Mr. Hearst
Tuesday when he chased down to
third and took a throw from Chaso
on a runner trying to go from first
to third on a sacrifice he made a
play founded on quick brainwork.
Yesterday he executed something in
the mechanical line that was just as
good. Incidentally, it saved a score
for the Sox and closed one of the
best openings the Browns had all aft
ernoon. In the second inning Johnston
reached secc-nd. on his single and ft
