Big White Hope Is Not
in Shape For a Cham
pionship Bout
Chicago's brightest prospect for a
World's heavyweight champion has
dimmed since last Wednesday night.
The said prospect, big Jess Wlllard.
turned off some of the power that was
Illuminating himnelf when he mingled
with a mere novice, Frank Baker, who
halls from St. Charles, 111. Willard
Rave Bauer a trimminc all right nnd
finally put the newcomer to fisticuffs
off watch in five rounds at Fort
The books that tell of pugilistic his
tory will record the knockout of Bau
er by Willard. and It will look lik H
classy performance In the dope But
It wasn't. The fact that Big Jess won
doesn't make him loom up like a
championship possibility, for tho?e
who saw the fight are strongly Im
bued with the idea that he needs o
whole lot more "schooling" before he
I , will be ready to try for the glory that
belongs to a tltlcholder.
The fact that It took Willard five
rounds to dispose of Bauer, of whom
nobody ever heard until he was mat h
ed with Jess, makes one thing stand
out plainly, and that Is that Willard's!
offensive fighting ability is extremely!
weak. The man he fought was out-
t weighed by fully 40 pounds, and so
J one-sided were the points at Issue
viz.. height, reach and punching pow
er that one glance at the two iuh k
ly showt.l there was no chance for
comparison Willard ossc8sed every
advantage, even that of experience,
for Bauer Is still a pupil in a box
ing Bchool
The fighting or Willard's opponent
isn't considered at all, for lie evident
ly got into the wrong game and h.id
no chance. His work did not e?QH
give tho rlngsider an opportunity to
see just how good Willard is on the
defensive lay. Jess found out quickly
that Bauer wasn't any match and ho
started out to finish the affulr Me ad
ministered plenty of damage, but In
doing it he took more time than was
necessary In fact, It was surprising
that he put the amount of useless en
ergy into his work that he did.
Incidentally Willard bruised a
knuckle on his right hand by punch
ing Bauer, which presents more food
for discussion anent his fighting
knowledge. Some contend that Jess
has a lot to learn about hitting. They
fall to understand how It happened i
that he should damage a hand by
punching an apparently easy victim, j
one who is not handing out any dam-
age In return. But that point can be
rectified If the others necessary to a
champion can be developed
There Is one thing that Willard
needs more than anything else right j
now If he hopes to shine prominently
or to battle Luther McCarly for the I
title, aud that Is fighting He needs i
a lot of ac tual ring work, for one of I
the things that this will develop is I
fighting spirit and the vlelousm--
that goes with the making of a good,
tighter He is a big. strong fellow,
and can stand a lot of work and It is
only actual fighting that will give hi,n
the experience he needs All the gym-
iM- ' .1 -It I II
inasium stuff will not uccompllsh much
J for him and those who know are of
the opinion that he should grab all
the fights he can sign for.
One thing appears certain, and that
is that Willard is not ready for Me
Carty. He may be some time In the
near future, but he has lots to learn
before he may hope to beat the
Springfield, O.. cowboy for tho title.
In this connection It might be stated
that HcCarty was enabled to go to
the front more rapidly in the last fev
months because he kept busy fighting,
while Willard was practically Idle.

and Dan McKetrick of the Forty

Brltton learned that McFarland was
to get nil that dough, he declined the
issue unless he was guaranteed a
like amount That made a total of
$14,000 for the boxers, and no promot

going to offer that amount. And it's
not a championship match either.

Prophets Who Make
Dire Predictions For
get Nine Year Record
Those baseball prophets wbo are'
pipdlctinq dire things for Chicago's'
Cubs, like fourth, fifth or ninth place
lor thpm at the finish of the coming I
pennant campaign, speak without in
tlmate knowledge of the tremendous
gap between third and fourth places 1
in the National league, a wide fissure
which has existed for so long that
little short of a cataclysm can con
tract it 10 any considerable extent
Speaking more concretely, the break
Ing up and reorganization of the west 1
side team can produce a lot of the 1
terrible things that have been fore
cast without necessarily causing the
Cubs to finish loner than third place
in the end of tho 101?, race They
can slump :i lot before they will meet
any of the occupants of lowr floors
coming up unless marked improve- 1
ment is made in some of the five
teams which for ears have been fix
tures around or below the .500 level
In games won.
I Proof of the foregoing statements
are contained In the composite stand -I
ing of the National league for the last
nine years It shows that three clubs
In that circuit have greatly outclass
ed the other five during the entire
period, and in that time two of the
three winning teams have been al
most completely made over.
This nine year interval is select
ed because the present style 154 game
schedule has been used in both
leagues since then and also because
previous to 1004 the teams were sub
ject to sudden changes of extraordi
nary nature on account of the base
ball war which was waged bitterly
up to the season of 1003 Since 1004
the Stability of the teams has been
assured by the ability of the elub
I owners lo retain their players from
year to year and by their Inability
to secure playing talent except by
the slow process of building up from
thn bottom
In the nine years since peace has
been firmly established there have
been only three teams In the running)
each season, and those three have 1
divided all the pennants. They are
Chicago, New York and Ilttsburg.
New York bagged the hunting in 1004,
1905, 1911 and 1912; Chicago In 1906,
1007, 1908 and 1910. and Pittsburg In
I Durlug Uiat entire period those
three teams have consistently won
80 per cent or more of their games
j The other five teams have come no
where near showing such class. Not
I one of them has a record of winning
50 per cent of Its games over the nine
j year interval. alUnnm-h moanonally
some one of them has copped half or
better than half its games in one
This means there have been two
struggles going on In the National
league every year One of them tus
for the pennant with Chicago. New
York and Pittsburg always fighting
each other for It The other strug
gle has been to gain ih only berth

sible for any of the remaining live
