No further progress has been made
,. toward signing Frank Chance as
manager of the Cubs. Weeghman
most emphatically says there is noth
ing to the' report and that Chance
positively will not manage the North
Siders in 1917. Prexy Charles could
not be stronger in his denial.
The Chance rumor, with a Cali
fornia impetus, still persists, how
ever. Through it all Joe Tinker seems
least worried of any one, and Joe
probably has more" at stake than any
of the principals. -
Joe Welling and Frankie Whitney
are billed for ten rounds in Kenosha
tonight, and those who attend should
see an entertainment worthy of the
trip. A special train will leave the'
Northwestern station at 6:55, return
ing immediately after the fight.
Welling will be a slight favorite be
fore the fight, having greater pres
tige with Chicago ring followers. -But
this Whitney person is not to be dis
regarded. The Cedar Rapids boy has
riot been as highly press-agented as
the Chicagoan, but his record is an
ambitious one, filled with victories
over men of accepted medit; in the
lightweight division. Welling has a
powerful punch, but so has Whitney.
The boys fight along the same line
and are not given to stalling.
A good card of preliminaries has
been arranged to open the show.

the Greater Chicago Federation and
a frequent speaker at dinners, ban
quets, high eats and big blowouts of

after-dinner stories shooting the ar
rows of ridicule into the bachelors.
