Wolgast-White Battle Is Now Off
Ad Busts a Couple of Ribs.
It has happened. Ad Wolgast has
"hurt" himself again and has can
celed his fight with Charley White,
for Friday night, in Milwaukee.
Wolgast finds it no trouble at all
to receive an injury just before a
fight, especially if he thinks there
will be -small financial return from
his work in the ring. He was not
hurt before his late battle with Bat
Nelson, because there was a prospect
of a large slice of the gate receipts,
with little danger of injury.
Two of Wolgast's ribs were frac
tured this time, the occasion being a
training bout with Antone the Greek.
Physicians say the Cadillac man will
not be able to get into a ring for two
Wolgast is undoubtedly hurt, but
the frequency with which he suffers
injury just before a bout, necessitat
ing its canceling, is becoming of such
frequency as to,be termed a habit
The postponement knocks White
out of a chance to make a name for
himself. The Chicagoan was looking
forward to his set-to with Wolgast
with high hopes and was confident of
being returned a victor. He was
favorite in the betting and would
have given Wolgast a warm argu
ment. Milwaukee promoters are trying
hard to secure Harlem Tommy Mur
phy, who was defeated by Packey
McFarland last week, to take Wol
gast's place. Murphy is a better man
than Wolgast and will be a tough
problem for White if the bout is ar
ranged. Cal Delaney and Matty McCue will
mix it in the Kenosha ring the night
of Oct. 28 and the argument should
be hot. Delaney has. been highly
touted, but McCue is one great little
fighter and has busted more than one
man's championship aspirations.
Giants Clean Up Sox Once More
Cal's Team Is Weak.
McGraw's aggregation of globe
girdlers trimmed the Sox for the sec
ond time yesterday, the great pitch
ing of Reb Russell being the only
thing that made the game close. The
score was" 3 to 1, the Giants winning
in the ninth inning by walloping four
Today the teams exhibit in Spring
field, and they will not be back in big
league territory again until the mid
dle of February. This will undoubt
edly be pleasant for some of the
Giants. Here and in Cincinnati they
listened to many gibes regarding
their late unpleasantness with the
Mackmen, and Matty, Demaree, Mer
kle and Snodgrass were asked many
questions regarding the ability of the
Athletic batters and pitchers.
If Callahan does not dig up some
new material soon the trip will be a
repetition of the work of the Sox
during the season. The pitchers will
have to win the games. As Reb Rus
sell, one of the mainstays of the staff,
isonly going as far as Texas, even
the pitching will not be terribly tight,
though Jim Scott can be depended
upon for some low scores.
Tris Speaker comes to the team
tomorrow to strengthen the outfield,
replacing Doc White. .Germany
Schaefer will probably remain in the
garden, and Morris Rath will stay
put on third base.
Rath's appearance yesterday was a
surprise. He is the only minor leag
uer in the crowd. Morris was a Sock
during the major portion of the sea
son, however, and, this influenced
Comiskey and Callahan in picking
him to take the jaunt
Al Demaree pitched the Kind of ball
yesterday that he forgot all about
when he faced Collins, Baker, Mcln
nis and Co. Six hits were all the
Sox could get , . .
