will not cover It According to the rec
ords ot the national commission the two
big organizations by purchase or draft
have taken S3b3JO werth ot talent from
t the smaller leagues Ot this sum 299550
1ms been paid The balance Is to go to the
minor league clubs It certain men make
good The American league clubs have
spent more coin for new material than the
National league clubs Charley Comlske
owner of the White Sox Bets the pace
for all the magnates He wants a good
team next season and has spent for new
material 5500 Blackburn the Provi
dence shortstop cost Commy about 8000
He Is the highest priced capture from the
minors All the club owners have proved
good spenders except the men at the head
ot the Washington club The Washington

OffERS fOR GAMES
COMING STRONG
Utah Eleven However Will Accept
None but Chance With
Michigan
Now that the football season for the
University of Utah Is over It seems that
applications In general for football games
are coming In Loss than one week ago
the Denver University expressed herself
I as anxious for a game This was denied
because ot earlier advances on the part
of Utah which were turned down
Only reterday came two offers of
games one from the University of Mon
tana the Montana eleven claiming a right
to meet Utah on account of her victory
15 to 5 over the Montana Agricultural
cOllege
Another offer of a game also reached
the University board yesterday from St
Vincents college of Los Angeles the elev
en that won from Utah 10 to O last year
Both apPlications were turned down
however as to both elevens arrangements
for a game earlier In the season had been
tendered and had been refused
At present it seems that the Utah foot
ball season Is over after the Branch Nor
mal game at Cedar City Saturday un
less the Invitation to the University or
Michigan team is accepted
Coach Maddock said last night that the
elevens now offering to play Utah were
showing poor excuses for games Inas
much as each had been given games
earlier In the season and In each case
the offers had bfen turned down
As It appears that the Michigan eleven
has small hopes of a western trip this
year It Is about definite that the Utah
football schedulE will end Saturday with
the game at Cedar City

lEW POWEll GAME BUT CLEARLY
I OUIfOUfiHT BY CLEVER WOLfiAST
I San Francisco Nov 29Ad Wolgast of Milwaukee was given the de
cision tonight over LeV Powell at the end of twenty rounds of fast and at
times bloody fighting Wolgast had the better of the contest from start
to finish and the whirlwind rushes and aggressive infighting proved a
combination that the local fighter was unable to meet
Powell Was the favorite at odds of
10 to 8 and he was backed for thou
sands It now is conceded by all that
Volgast after his showing against the
Californian Is the legitimate opponent
of Champion Nelson
The fight tonight was remarkable for
the terrific clip the fighters maintained
and the disinclination at any time to
break ground or shirk punishment
Wolgast Set the Pace
Wolgast opened the battle as If he
Intended to make a runaway fight of
It He fairly dazzled Powell with his
speed and his aggressive fighting at
close range was a revelation Time
and again he drove right and left short
arm blows to the body and jaw and
kept his arms going with such piston
like regularity that PoWell was aU at
sea Try as he might he could not elude
the Illwaukeeans determined rushes
and the best he could do was to pro
tect himself let alone administer any
punishment Wolgast devoted his early
attacks to Uw kidneys and soon great
r red blotches bedecked Powells back
The men fought almost constantly at
close rangE throughout the entire bat
tle and while In this position Wolgast
sent In smash after smash on the Call
fornlans jaw and face and soon the
blood was spouting In streams from his
mouth and nose One round was a rep I
etition of the other with olgast In
variably holding the upper hand
In the twelfth round Powell made his
only showing It was the most vicious
round of the fight and for a moment It
looked as It Powell might turn the ta
bles He sent In several ponderous right
smashes as the easterner rushed In and
forced him to stall most of the round
out Toward the close of the round
however Wolgast cut loose again and
after administering a fearful beating to
the Californian the latter went to his
corner In a semigroggy condition
Wolgast again took the lead and held
It to the end all the time punishing
Powell severely about the face and
bringing fresh blood In almost every
round Old rIng followers said after the
fight that not since the days ot George
Kid Lavigne has a tighter created the
Impression left by Wolgast His speed
and endurance and aggressive qualities
were marvelous Powells punches had
little It any effect on him
Stood the Gaff
He also showed himself to be the pos
sessor or a powerful punch and It was
only Powells wonderful ability to ab
sorb punishment that prevented a 1
knockout
Powell although beaten was not dis I
graced He fought a stubborn game
fight but lost to a better man
Powells face was badly disfigured at
the end ot the contest and his body
also shoWGd evidence of Volgasts
punches Wolgast did not go scotfree
his left ee being badly swollen his lips
split and his nose somewhat lacerated
