Fulton had Morris gasping against the ropes at the end of the second round ; knocked him to his knees in the third with a left jab to the jaw and had him groggy at the end of the round; put him down early in iho fourth for the count of nine with a straight left to the stomach, and again knocked him down with a blow to the s.'tmo spot when ho arose. At the second knockdown in tho fourth round Mor ris' second tossed in a towel to save tho ox-ongincer the ignominy of , having a referee count 10 over him, which un doubtedly is what would have happened had Morris again clambered to his feet to face the northerner. .Morris No Match for Prcd.

There was no question about Kill ton's victory bolng oloRH-cut. Mor i-u wiiH no match for him. Morris, despite tho fact that ho trained harder for this bout than for any hfcro In years, was In no condition ti, itirt t un niit,).i nt iif tht caUbef of Fulton. Without the heavy tape with which he drapes himself while training, Morris' big stomach prn tuded like a lighthouse in a fog, und ho had no chance at nil with on iiKlle, clevor boxer like Fulton who also could hit hard enough to shako him up. Neither man struck a low Mow, although most of the mixing wim at close quarters. The largest crowd that has wit nessed a boxing match hero In years turned out for the affray. HcndrlckH Win Another.

Hut his auctioning off of stare ran be construed no other way.

The Wichita Knglo evidently thinks Izay Is about to pull up his stakes and inovo on. Commenting on thn Western longue outlook, "Pal" gild Hunday In the Kagle: "One of the changes may come In tho retirement of Frank fsbell from tho Imsobnll field In thu Western league. Isboll l almost certain to relaln his club hern noxt season. There seems to bo no chance nt all of Wichita losing a club. Hut It Is slated by Rome one closo to tho Wichita magnate that tho genial 'Uzy' has his oyes on a frunchlso on Iho const In the Pacific Coast league, where he could have a wider field for hie baseball endeavors. There Is no friction at all with Wichita, hut Isbell can naturally be expected to better hlmsolf In base ball If he has the chnrice. " 'Iitj Is n tit p baseball num.

'The Wichita owner has been here for eight years. While the base ball arrangement ha been highly satisfactory to date, It may not always continue so. The owner likes to make money. Last year there was no money made In Wichita from tho box office standpoint. It was an off yoar, and may or may not occur ngaln noxt season. Howover, If Wlohltft crowds do fall to como hack next year. Isbell would naturally think that the fans were tiring of hlmeelf and his ball club. " 'Izry' gavo nn Intimation before he left Wichita that he would sell If he got his price. He stated to the writer that he would step down when Wichita fans wanted It.. 'If tho citizens hero wished to buy the ball club r would sell It at any lime,' said Isbell. 'If tho fano get tired of mo, the only thltig for me to do Is to turn tho club over to someone olse. Thoro would be no harsh feelings anywhero nnd I would hope my successor good luck." "This city will fuco a big loss however. If Isbell does leuvo.

LEONARD OPENS CAFE, TRAINING NOW SECONDARY Official Western League Batting Challengers Forced to Cool Their Heels Await ing His Pleasure By DAVIS J. WALSH. I. N 8. Bportlnc Editor. NEW YOIUC, Dec. 18. Following In the ancient footsteps of Torn Sharkey, Jim Joffrles . and others, Denny Leonard, our esteemod llght wolght champion, has oponed a popular cafe, Just off Hroadway, anil according to rumor la doing his training there. Ho calls It tho "Hlng etdo club," arid Is pleaeod to notn that tho place haB become n rendezvous for that particular type of Jlromlway habitue that goes home only for a chango ot linen, when needed. Leonard is a busy man these days. What with elevating the drama and running a popular club for paying guests, he can not find time to do Justice to the box fighting business and Messrs. Charley White nnd Lew Tendler are forced to cool their eoml cbamploushlp heels while awaiting his pleasure. From all indications, there will be no bput for tho light weight champion until such a time as tho champion gets around to It. Tho contenders havo rocaurne to the boxing commission which Issues manifestos upon request, demanding recognition of legitimate challenges. But tho plausible Mr. Leonard has u perfectly good "out." When a chal lenger actually becomes pestiferous, ho calls upon his dentist. The latter issues n professional moan concern ing the deplorable condition of Mr. Leonnrd's gums. From all accounts, Bonny has no Intention of entering the ring ngaln until tho outdoor sea son when crowds aro great and gates nro wide. Loonard is not exactly tho subject for sermons at this time. Ho 1b far too smart to burn the candlo nt both ends, but boxing men will tell jou that howover eureful ho may ba In avoiding Indulgences, his present mode of living Is not above criti cism. Leonard must reach the theater around 7 o'clock and does not leave It before 11:30. Morning rehearsals and matinees haunt his waking hours and upset his training schedule. If Leonard finds time to train nt somo odd momont, tho chances aro he Is too tired to take mlvantago of it. Plub TULSA Wichita Hloux C. O riiaha St. Jo. , Okla. C. Denvor lies M. , CLl tl HATTING.

Truo these two class A leagues aro far removed geographically, hut tho natural Intersections! interest sucli a cimtest would provoke, would assure h''avv patronar-o Tho leagues nro not muoh farther apart than the American association and tho Internationa, which play a series each fall. If the players would agroo to tho propowl that they accept their share of thn gate receipts, and forego their salary after tho clown ot the regular season, there's no reason why tho series could not bo arranged. The players should do this. The percentage of rocetpts would make a neat purso for them, nnd they'd get a chnncc to cover themselves with glory to boot. If you don't think the glory counts for anything, Just nsk any member of tho champion Oilers of 1922 how much satisfaction he got out of trimming tho Mobile Bears.
