' ' ' The skilled hand of the irrepressible press agent Is being shown in the un expected squabble over the pTopoted Jess Willard-Fred Fulton, bout, to have been staged at New Orleans on March 4. All around tho country f porting men are trying to make Fulton known t0 tno fans before stacking him up against the world's heavyweight champion. Whether the plan will succeed or fall will not be seen.for several weeks. Tom Andrews, the Milwaukee pro moter. Is oh his way to New Orleans, hoping to carry out the contract he has with Tortorlch and Burns for Uie ar rangement of the bout between Fulton and Wlllard. . "Tho titir Orleans promoters author ised me to sign Fulton to ineet Wil 4ard and I cannot understand the re rent turn of affairs In connection with the match," says Andrews. "Moraahad an opportunity to sign articles to meet Wlllard berore Fulton 'was signed. Furthermore. Moran also had a chance to meet Fulton before March! and still has such a proposition confronting him provided the New Orleans promoters have no oblectlon. "When I signed for Fulton to meet Willlard I did so on behalf of his man ager, Mike Collins, anl ut the request of the New Orleans club. The match which Fulton has entered Into has prevented him from taking on other contests which would net him a neat sum of money and, I hope by making the trip South to clear up the taufled situation " . Doralnlck Tortorlch. the New Orleans promoter, insists on backing out of the affair, unless Fulton .lrst meet the winner of the Moran-Colfey clash In New York. Tommy flunu, who lost tho heavyweight title to .Uck Johnson, has expressed his willingness to go ahead by himself and btage the big combat for the championship. TO BATTLE TONIGHT Former American Lightweight Champion Enters Welter Class of Performers. T NEW YORK. Dec. ITS. Willie Rltch'e. former lightweight champion of th- world, and Ted Lewis, the speedy Bri ton, will meet In a ten-round bout at Madison Square Garden tonttht. Articles of agreement call for a battle at 113 pounds ringside, the tee class championship. It Is no sue at H3 pounds ringside, the legitimate ed as) at mplonshlp. It Is no such thing. of course, bcausg neither is welter champion. Thero Is no recognised welter champion. This class seems to have fallen more or less Into disrepute of late years. There were not sufficient good boys of tho proper poundago t maintain Interest in the i division. Though no cfratnponshlp Is. At stake In tonight's contest the scrap should co far to clear the weltir atmosphere. A knockout for cither man would put him in sufficient favor with the public to es tablish championship claims, provided he could stand off thc prosent limited crop of 142-pound men. Ritchie and Lewis have declared that In case of decisive victory tho winner will claim the welter tttlo and stand ready to maintain the presumption against tho field. It would bo hard to have to provide two better men at the weight. " Both have outgrown tho lightweight division though Ritchie win not aatmt tne met in h.s case and for this match bate built up rather than trained down. Wherefore both should be strong, either to deliver a telling blow or to weather the same. Great Players Decide Not to Visit United States Until the War Is Ended. LONDON. Dec. 28. George Duncan, the professional golfer of the Hanger Hill Club, stated today that he does not Intend arranging another American tour during the coming season for the pur pose, of turning the net receipts over to benefit the war relief funds. Duncan said also that It Is very unlikely Harry Vardon, of Sduth Herts; J. H. Taylor. Mid-Surrey; Edward Ray, Oxhey. or James Braid. Waltoh Heath, will accept any engagements to play exhibition games outside of Great Britain until the war Is over. Only for tho' torpedoing of the Lusi tanta, on which they had booked pas sage. Duncan. Taylor, Vardon, and Ray wpuld have taken part In the last open championship of the United States Golf Association, uney resoivea at mat time to stay In England and "do their bit," whatever It shou!dhappen to be, until the end of tho war. Many of their fellow-professionals have joined the col ors, and several already have fallen, and, according to Duncan, there is no possibility of any of the accepted lead ers of the British golfing world going back o nthelr work or shirking their responsibilities to go to America ever for the purpose of collecting money to swell the relief funds.
