H (By Otto Floto.)
H Again Jhls morning wo read wheie
H several fighters arc demanding terms
Hl win, lose or draw that are simply
Hl ridiculous. The modern Tighter should
Hj , pat himself on the back and accept
H , his personal congratulations that he
H was noi doing battle some twenty
H ' years ago. In those days "the fight-
H ! cr had to take a chance." If he won
H he was entitled to the big end of the
Hl pur.ci. and when ho lost he was cou-
H tent with the short end that coes
H to the anqulshed
H Not so today, however. They, like
H Shlock. want '-theirs" in the hand
H before they enter the ring. MI the
H glory of winning is sacrificed to the
H ' commercial end of the match. In
H older times the fighter would rather
H win and not receive a cent than lose
H and receive thousands. That angle
H ' of sportsmanship has vanished since
H our fighters of today, with their mer-
H cenary tendencies, began to rule the
H When we see boys of second and
H third rate caliber domandlng $10,000
H kin, lose or draw for a 10-round
1 bout, and then recall wonderful ring-
H sters like Jack Dempsey, who fought
H championship battles witll bare
H knuckles or skin-tight gloves for a
H 250 purse, that was divided between
M the winner and loser, it makes us stop
M and wonder what the famous "Xon-
M pareil" would sny were he alive lo-
fl day and read of these demands.
H When Dempsey fought Frazier for
H the championship in a private room
H in XewYork he got 5175 as his eqd and
H he handed Frazicr $100 of this after
H the battle waB over. They were not
H only fighters in those days, but they
H wore sportsmen with It. They pitied
H the loser. This may have been caus-
M ed from the fact that when a man
H was once defeated for the champion-
H ship he generally retired from the
H ring. Not so now; they are defeat-
H ed one day and the very next we
H find them issuing challenges to some
H opponent.
M The fighters in those days did not
m have the nicely heated and ventilated
H i clubs of todav with the limit of the
Hl bouts always in sight. Look at the
H night that McAuliffe fought Jem Car-
nev. Jack should havo been in a hos
pital instead of the prize ring, yet
he fought for the championship of
the world with skin-tight gloves some
SO-odd rounds before daylightbroke
up the bout. The men fought on a
cold winter day in a barn at Revere
Beach, near Boston They were
fighting for a ?U,500 side bet. Never
did a fighter display the gameness
that McAuliffe did that night. Few
knew how sick he really was, and
Dempsey. who was one of the sec
onds, told the writer:
"I think this fight will be the death
of Jack"
That will give an idea of what
timber a champion used to have to
b" made of It 's only since limit
ed bouts constituted championships
that nine out of every ten of them
would hae failed as champions 13
Lor liO yearB ago. Time changes
things doesn't it?
( By Robert Edgrcn )
Ad Wolgast Ib finding life full of
hard bumps They do say that Ad
and his manager, the glib and slippery
Tom Jones, arc in a rage over the
New Orleans reports of the recent
fight between Wolgast and Joe Man
dot. Naturally the champion and his
manager can see only WolgasL The
other fellow is a mere outsider, a
slinking wretch whose unworthy am
bition is to rob Wolgast of his light
weight title Wolgast, no doubt, and
Jones agree in the opinion that the
title should of right be Wolgast's prl
ate property as long as he cares to
hold it. All champions have that no-1
I would not -say that Wolgast is
allowing signs of having "gone back"
just because clever Joe Mandot can
give him a tough time of it in a 10
round bout. Wolgaet was In good
shape when K O Brown put him over
the Jumrs In six rounds in Philadel
phia and In 10 In New York People
who thought Wolgast was on the slide
at that time wore convince I of their
mistake when the champion turned i
around and stopped Hogan In less than I
two rounds. Juct after fighting little I
K. O. and getting at least non the i
best of It, wolgast knocked out Mem-
6ic, La Grae, Hogan, Burns and Mo
ran In succession
So. although Mandot stayed 10
rounds and finished well, I haidly
consider Wolgast a back number.
Ho'll have to be whipped and laid flat
on his back before lie joins the has
been class.

Kelly has made baseball in St Paul
despite tho drawing power of Minne
apolis. He made money for the own

for fancy prices N5w he is said to
be slated to manage tho Indianapo

Kelly developed Marty O'Toole and
sold him to Pittsburg for $22,500
(whether regular or stage money Is a
mattet of opinion), and then induced
Pittsburg to take Catcher Bill Kelly
for $C,500.
This was pulled off in 1011. This

by sending Shortstop Artie Butler to
Pittsburg in exchange for Inflelders

16 OF.220 GAMES
While the football season is at its
height, It may be Interesting to note
some of the facts concerning the Yak
team's record In the past Since 1SS
Yale has played 220 games, not Includ
Ing this season. Out of these Yale
has been defeated onl 1C times,
seven by Princeton, four by Harvard
three by West Point, and once by Co
lumbia and once by Brown.
Yalo's total score for these 22r
games is 9,214, the opponents having
made only 470 points, or 4.5 per cent
of the sum of the total scores of
both Yale has played three games
or more apiece 11 having been unable
to score, Amherst having played IS
games with Yale without being able
to score.
Yale's highest score was made
against We-slewin. when Uie latter
was defeated 13C to 0. the third hlgh
ert ocore ever made by a football

he so steady and rapid as it appears
on the face of returns if Minnesota's
green team lives up to the expecta
tions of the Gopher coaches. It would
be poetic justice for the Gophers to
spoil Wisconsin's chance, for It was
the Badgeis who spoiled Minnesota's
claim last year by tying the Gophers
In a sensational contest
To reverse the order this year would
delight Minnesota rooters more than
winning half a. dozen championships,

keenest bort of rhals. their bitter- j
ness beine- enhanced bv the manner
In which Wisconsin protested Pick-1

on the ee of the game last season.

highly of tho 1912 squad, and de

i The team Is green, he declares, but
the men are natural players and
seem to do intuitu cly what some
coaches have to drill their men in
lor weeks and months
Although Coach Williams sajs the
team is light. McGovern declaies the
eleven plenty heavy enough to take
care of itself, and says Wisconsin
will have trouble beating the North
men. An instance of the rapidity with
which Minnesota players grasp foot
ball was given in the Iowa game
Iowa had high hopes of winning from
Hie Minneapolis team and bent every
effort to learn what sort of attack
was being prepaied For this lca
fion scouts wcio sent to .Minneapolis
to study the work of Williams' men
in the early games and see what
style of attack was practiced in the
training giounds
Minnesota was none too confident
of succeeding and the sam plan of
scouting was used bv Williams. Min
nesota developed her famors shift
pla for the Iowa game, the strength
being concentrated on one side of the
line and the play being sent through
that pait Iowa loarned of this and
Jesse Haw ley built a defense that
seemed capable of taking care of the
play, and the morning of the Iowa
game Williams was informed of the
deienso Iowa had perfected.
Tho Minnesota coach saw that in
building a defense for the shift Iowa
had loft n big opening for a forwaid
pass and planned out a play which
he gave to his men less than an hour
before the came was scheduled to
begin There was no opportunity
to run the play in signals, nor was
there a chance for a chalk talk, but
the men were assembled and Wil
liams explained the play and told
them to use It. With no prepara
tion other than that the Gophers went
into the game, worked the play per
fectly and much of the big score piled
un by the Gophers was due either
d'rectly ur indirectly to the forma
tion. McGovern declares this Is no Isolat
ed instance of the rapidity with which
the Gopher candidates have shown
their ability to learn football rapid
