Ad Wolgast is going to make one
more bid for stellar honors in Mil
waukee Monday night in a fight with
Freddie Welsh. Ad was through Chi
cago yesterday on his way to the
Cream city, where he will do the re
mainder of his training.
Wolgast looks to be in fine shape,

Indianapolis is the hot stove kind, and
when the fans gather round they tell
stories of Ernest Cutler Price, who,
as Dillon, has placed Indianapolis on
the sport map against her will, Dil
lon probably is the only top-notch
athlete in any branch who deliberate
