Dick Ferris Will Give Up $15Q,000 to
Bring Jeff and Jack South
IS Los Angeles going .to carry off'- the great Jeffries-Johnson battle, in
spite of the turndown which TomMcCarcy experienced in New. York?
This is the question that they arc all asking now, and it's not an
idle one, either, for ' Dick Ferris, tliir man who so successfully proipoted
* . the great aviation meet in the south a few weeks ago, is hot after the
championship match, i He will giye Glea»on ..and Rickard the. cool sum of
$150,000 for the privilege of pulling it off, arid the promoters believe, that"
he means business when he makes /this proposition. He sent the following
wire yesterday:.. :\ : \'-/\ ;."; '\u25a0;\u25a0 .\u25a0•'.- . \ ! r,,:"' '\-:-<
"•\u25a0'•\u25a0 Will you : consider legitimate proposition to bring the Jeffries-Johnson
iight to Los Angeles if guaranteed $150,000? Answer.
. " " v ••' "DICK FERRIS."
, Gleason and Rickard :liad a conference at the St. Francis last night and
discussed this offer, as' well as the Salt Lake proposition, which James Nelson
made. Nelson was nsot; to be caught napping, either, for he" reported right
on the job. He was fearful that. Something might crop up to spoil his own
plans, and-he' appeared ready and willing to go even further than he has gone.
After a long di«cus>ipn. Rickard and Gleason decided to let things rest
as they i have been resting for l'qurVor five days more at least. They, wired
Ferris that his proposition was under consideration and asked him to write
a letter giving full details. If Ferris is on the level with this offer, the
chances arc that he will hurry to this city immediately. *.
>. \u25a0\u25a0•'lf this offer is a legitimate one. and I have every reason in the world
10 believe it is, then we must consider it very seriously and thoroughly,"
said -! Gleason last night. "I know. Ferris, and I know, that he is a live
prpmoter, with plenty of money of his own and plenty of backing as well.
He. made a great success out of that aviation meet.and he thinks now that
he can make just as great a success out of the big fight. • . •
• r^;;.*'l feel certain that the prominent businessmen and boosters of Los
Angeles are behind Ferris in this deal. They want that fight at any cost,
and they, are going to keep Rickard and myself hustling and thinking very..
faVorabfy of their proposition. But we will be ready for them.*'
";V Rickard doe< not like the idea of anybody taking the match .off: his
hands; .Tex is a gambler, and a game one at that." He went into. the race
Jn.vNc.w York an outsider, yet he made the whole world sit up and take
.notice when he Vlipped in his bid. Xow that. he has gone so far, Rickard
ifclsJike. going the whole route, and San Francisco or vicinity looks good ]

\u25a0;V-- '-'I It is a: question whether Jeffries will fight in Los. Angeles. Some time.
ago thjc' big fellow made a statement that he would not fight in his home
to\vh :under any circumstances. Persona|lj% the big fellow is strong for San
Francisco or vicinity. He has fought most of his vjreat battles right here,
and he believes that this i« the place for a go with Johnson.
\u25a0\u25a0/. .LOS ANGELES. March 1. — Replying to a telegram from Promoters
Gleason and Rickard. asking for more definite detail? of his proposition to
liold the Jeffries-Johnson fight in Los Angeles than were contained in a
brief dispatch sent last night, Dick Ferris tq/iight mailed a letter to the
promoters in San Francisco in which he offers to assume the entire financial
arrangements of the big fight and purchase their contracts outright,
-r Ferris' offer is to pay Gleason and Rickard $150,000 for the contracts with
Jeffries and Johnson, which involve theni in the sum of $101,000, and also to
assume all additional indebtedness incident to the holding of the fight, in
Los Angeles. With the transfer of the contracts with Jeffries and Johnson,
Ferris also 'asks for the one-third interest in the moving, pictures held by
Gleason and Rickard.
The fight would, under the terms of the agreement offered by' Ferris, be
held under the management of Ferris and his associates here. Ferris agrees
to post at once a sufficient sum to guarantee the fulfillment of the agreement
he offers to make. • \u25a0
:« V The fight, if held in Los Angeles, would be staged at a point just outside
of the city limits, where contests for any number of rounds are permitted.

\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 NEW YORK, March 1. — The first of
ficial handicap list' ever compiled by
the Woman's Metropolitan golf asso

contains the names of more than 100
players with ratings ranging all the
way from plus 1. to 25. .^i^l
Mrs. C. T. Stout- of the Richmond
country club and former national and
Metropolitan title holder is at plus 1,
while Miss Julia R. Mix of Englewood,
present champion of the association,
and Miss Georglana M. Bishop of
Brooklyn are at scratch.
The increasing tendency on the part
of the association to conduct one day

imperative and there is little doubt
that it will be of much benefit.
