THE CALL’S PAGE OF SPORTS Lightweight Title Holder Will Keep Out of Ring WOLGAST HAS GIVEN BOXERS EVERY CHANCE Champion Is Entitled to a Rest After Practically Meeting All Comers The lightweight sky has become clouded I once more and the vast army of challengers who would wear the crown which now decorates the head of Ad Wolgast of Michigan is once more clamoring for a chance. It's; the • same old story which is always going the rounds when a fighter In any class mounts the championship .throne, and, as a general rule, the hue and cry continues till the champion gets old—and they all get old—then a new one assumes the duties and they start all over again. Wolgast has been the busiest champion. who ever won the title. This is the truth. Even Joe Gans in his palmy days never jumped around the country for the purpose of defending his hard earned title more frequently than has this little German. As a matter of fact he is entitled to a much needed rest, but like the rest of them, the glare of the calcium has won him over and he wants to keep on going. H_HJ_MpBH| A few days ago It did look as though they had succeeded in hitching up Wolgast and the much heralded Packey McFarland for a 10 round setto in Milwaukee during the month of September. But! that old time bugaboo, the weight. loomed up as a serious obstacle at the last minute, and from all accounts these two fighters will not meet for some little time, and perhaps never. Wolgast probably realizes that McFarland is not a lightweight. ... ONLY- LESSER LIGHTS MA BE MET While Wolgast may possibly take on some of the lesser lights in the six and the ten round game around New York and Philadelphia, the chances are that he will not play any important engagements till he meets Freddie Welsh in the Vernon ring on Thanksgiving afternoon. This looms up as the one huge task in front of, the champion at the present time. There is no doubt but the little champion would be foolish indeed if he takes any chances with men like McFarland in the meantime. The meeting with Welsh means a $15,000 purse for,him,.win. lose or draw. In the event that he does win, and he certainly figures to do so, then $15,000 additional will be coming,his way from his theatrical dates. McFarland probably is anxious to get at Wolgast for the • reason that he is not making any big money, never did make any big money and probably never will unless he hooks up with a champion. As great a fighter as he Is, Packey never has gone against a title holder. He has been hovering around the ragged edge for a long time, but only picking up small purses. The reason is that the stockyards lad is just a trifle too heavy. He always has been, notwithstanding his statements to the contrary. He Would be wearing the lightweight crown today but for his unfortunate weight. .Three years ago Billy Nolan, the once king of managers, was ready to take Packey out and make him champion,' but when he discovered that the Chicago lad could not do 133 pounds ringside, he merely shook his head and bade Packey be on his way. 'SSPSSSI This Is enough to convince the fans that Packey will never rule the lightweight division. When a man like Nolan turned down an offer of that kind it is a pretty safe bet that something was lacking. The wonder of it all is that they still insist that McFarland is in line for the title, and that one of these days he and Wolgast will hook up for the honor's in a 20 round bout. Let us wait and see. While he is stalling and waiting around Wolgast intends to make good use of his time. Just to show the eastern fans that Bat Nelson has nothing on him, Wolgast is planning to tour the middle west with a set of the moving pictures of the Wolgast-Moran battle. He will do, some of the spieling, and as a sort of side show, he will don the mitts with his ever faithful understudy; Hobo Dougherty, and he will endeavor to gently illustrate how he disposed of the Briton in this city last fourth of July. ...''. If Wolgast is wise he will ? play the moving picture game for a while, for several months in fact, till he is ready to start- training for Welsh. A man who injures his hand's so easily as does. the little champion' can not afford to be meeting all comers, no "matter how soft they look. lie put himself out for nearly a year on one sucker, and it should be a warning. It is too bad that some of the promoters can not patch up the differences which exist between Packey McFarland and Matt Wells, the British light weight champion. According to all accounts both these men are legitimate 135 pound performer's, well matched in every respect and in line to make a fight worth traveling many miles to look at. From the way he has been beating all comers in the east in the short distance bouts, Wells must be something of a bear. Up to the present time he has toyed with the boys, and the critics all agree that he easily displays even more class than Welsh, Moran, White or any of the British boxers who have invaded the United States during the last 10 years. i As the fans all know. Wells came up from obscurity a few months ago by t handily beating Welsh in a2O round bout in London. This was the one.big surprise of the English boxing season. Welsh was looked upon as a man in a class by himself, and they were laying ; 4 and stol on him. Yet his opponent outpointed him fairly and squarely. ' Promoter Milton T. Clark of this city still believes that he will land Wells and McFarland for his September date. It he does the fans are sure to witness a great battle. The chances are that the men will agree upon 135 pounds, for, according to ; all reports, the Britisher ; can not make the American lightweight limit and do himself justice in the ring. KAUFMAN WILL GO TO AUSTRALIA HWVR_RH| At last Al Kaufman, the big" California heavy weight, has fallen in right. .Al has ; practically closed a deal" for * a tour of Australia during .the coming fall, and, unless" he breaks a leg or an arm* in. the meantime, he,figures to clean up all the kangaroo heavy weights in jigtime. Kaufman has accepted the terms of Hugh Mcintosh to box either Bill Lang or Jack Lester in Sydney during September or October. He. will sail next month. He is to get a guarantee of $5,000 for his first fight, win, lose or draw. This looks soft enough for the big fellow, "i for we will have to take off our hats to him as being the best heavy weight in the business, with the possible exception of the two great negroes/Johnson and Langford. Kaufman's invasion' of \ Australia may eventually lead to a match : with Johnson, and then the dreams of his admirers may possibly come true. For the last two years, Kaufman's" bosom friends' have been saying that one day or another big Al would ; become the champion of - the world. , Stranger things have happened, though the present prospects are not bright. According to the London dispatches, Johnson ; has', signed to meet Bill Lang in Sydney during next Easter week. Kaufman is to ; take on the Aus tralian champion in "the meantime. . Now, unless the Californian has gone back 200 per cent, he will fairly hammer Lang all over the ring. He all but flattened Lang iin a 10 round bout in New York, and, as everybody knows, Al is no short distnee performer. . .Over in Australia they are crazy about big fighters. This is why Tommy Burns won himself a fortune over there. This is the reason that Jack Johnson is the heavy weight champion of the -world. This! is the reason why Lang, from all accounts, but a fourth rate . bruiser, is held in such high esteem ; and gets away with so much of the soft stuff. HB_HB--4''WBP'B Kaufman looks good now. He has entirely recovered from his recent knockout at ; the hands of Jim Flynn. ! This must have been a i fluke ;of some kind, because a couple of years back Al had little difficulty, in knocking Flynn out in 14 rounds down in Los Angeles. Certainly, he deserve^ another chance to square himself with the fans. a * * While Welsh is waiting for a crack at .Wolgast, it i* very likely that he will be sent in against One Round Hoganin this city next month. Promoter Jim' Coffroth is looking with great favor upon this match, and when he arrives 'from" Tahoe within the. next '* few days the chances. are " that he will get on the job and sign the lightweights up. The only black mark against. Hogan is", that ■„ two .round defeat which Wolgast scored over him in New York. Even then he was not knocked off hiY feet " He never«has been knocked -down. To use the language lof the champion himself: "Hogan is the gamest, hardest hitting! man I ever met. He can lick most of those fellows who are hollering for a*chance to! fight me." ! Hogan "made the mistake of trying [to knock out a * champion jin a punch that night. Had he boxed as he is capable of boxing, and 'had he stalled as the others : have stalled, he ' would have ; lasted the 10 rounds . and held the king of lightweights to a draw. But, like many;other. inexperienced young sters,* Hogan lost his" head, and now he is, suffering. ! With Hogan going right against Welsh,; the fans would be sure of a fine exhibition of fighting and boxing. With the right sort of a man in his corner—a man like ' "Spider"; Kelly— would - stand 'a! chance of giving the foreigner one of the toughest battles of his career for 20 rounds. And in the meantime Hogan would not have to fear a knockout. -.-, * * * If Billy Papke and Frank Klaus ever make up their minds' to come -to gether in San Francisco in a 20 round battle, they can make a lot of money for; themselves. The fans are fairly itching to see * these wild performers tear at each other, and they will be willing to give up liberally if . the oppor portunity presents itself. mWL&WVm-mWmK/amV^ ■'?- Now that is out of the way, Papke may as well be looked upon as the middle weight champion. Of- course. Sam: Langford -still looms up, but anybody with any sense knows full well that Papke would rather, take ron a wild African lion in a 12x12 cage than take on Mr. Langford; in a 20 foot ring. The name of the' Boston tar baby may as well be dropped. He is so good that none of them, want 1 himnot even Johnson himself." • • . " If Klaus ever! fought/Papke the \ way he fought Montana Dan Sullivan over in Oakland a few.weeks ' ago, he would; stand an even chance of beating the lad from Kewanee. Papke "is. a great fighter without a heart. He is there with everything else, but, as:an old timer remarked the orhte day, "when a fighter-lacks the heart he may as well get a job heaving!coal." : Klaus, on the other hand, appears to be all: heart. is one fighter who does not fear a punch. A peek at that square jaw of his is enough. to convince any fan of this fact. Klaus managed ;to ;■ hold ; Ketchel • and . Papke safe' in six; round : bouts, and he was * only ■a • novice ' then.: Since that time !• he ; Has beaten every man in his class. He looks to be,the makings!of a champion. " / THE /SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, JULY 23, 1911 BRITISH CHAMPION LOOKS TO BE A COMING WONDER! Latest photograph of Matt Wells, the British lightweight champion, wearing the Lonsdale belt, which he won when he beat Freddie Welsh. FITTEN IS BILLED TO BOX REILLY Miller Meets Taylor White La bel Takes on McFarland Next Friday Night Next Friday night promises to he a lively night at Dreamland rink, when the four rounders will again blossom forth. Eight bouts will be down for decision, and' the starts include every class from the shifty little bantams up to :, lumbering heavy weights. The Dreamland'club will promote the show; under the direction of Frank Schuler. For a main attraction, Schuler will put on Jimmy Fitten, the best light weight that Oakland has-produced in many years, and Charley Reilly, the clever local lad, who. lias always:held his own with' the best of them in the short distance ; mixups. Both \ lads can do the lightweight limit without trou ble, so they figure to be- good and strong when the bell rings. . Fitten is an idol with the transbay fans, though they don't know so much about him over here. However, all the local experts who have seen the auburn haired lad perform are good boosters for him. Fitten-has beaten, Willie Ritchie ; and .Antone la Grave and has held his own against Johnny Frayne. Nobody" has ever beaten the Oakland boy decisively. v^iasHUlßniM-MP-B Reilly should be in a:class with the near; champions by this time," but/; un fortunately, he Is not the sort of boxer who can send himself to the front. .He Is without doubt the cleverest lad that the short distance bouts have produced here ln a good - many ; years, .but,-.-like most! of the very, clever performers, he lacks the telling wallop. - Charley - Miller, the / big German heavy weight and the acknowledged champion of *, the /four, rounders, will swap punches with Lew Taylor of Oak land/ A ' year or, so =" ago Taylor was being touted as a white man's , hope, but he suddenly/quit-the game. .Now he is anxious to comeback, but ho has picked out a tough bird in Miller, for Miller has beaten them all. . r If one of these big fellows shows the necessary class and wins "by a clean knockout/he will stand out aa a good card In the heavy weight ranks.

The way of it was this. Joseph L. Bley ;of a local brokerage firm decided there was much hidden talent In; the custom, house and he offered to : outfit a > team with s the j necessary parapher nalia. The proposition was Jumped at by' all the enthusiasts in the custom house. But by a process of elimination the number of active players was, lim ited, to 11.

Mcl Long!has, in the two tourneys played to date/been the bright star. He > has done all that could he asked of him in singles. He was the first;on the ground, and with the ex ception/of Carl Gardner, who now lives in the east, was the only Cali fornia player entered in the Seabright tournament, the first of the season. While ! nothing much was expected of him in this event, he had not been showing up well previous to leaving for the east/and did not have long to practice .on the turf courts, he: came through as winner of the tournament, and then won the challenge match. His game -evidently is better on the turf than on the asphalt courts, and it did not take him long to get into condition. - McLoughlin joined Long in time for the Longwood tournament, and It waa then thought that Long would be forced to take a back seat, as great things were expected of. McLoughlin. He had beaten Long recently on local courts and had Improved his game this year - to such. an : extent '• that the fol lowers of the game on the coast would not.be-surprised to hear of him win ning the national title. His showing ln the Longwood singles was a queer one -and the fans, are at a loss to know how to figure it. His defeat at the hands of C. F. Touchard, the former California player, was a great surprise, not only to the coast but to the eastern players.! Touchard ranked eighth last year and McLoughlin was put in fourth, place and was hot* favorite when they came together. '- 5/SRM9RMPWHB |QP4fI What was: more surprising is the fact that he was defeated after. winning two of .the first three sets. It is very seldom ithat this, happens to McLough lin, for when he takes a lead iof that kind he Is usually playing his game and goes right on to victory. He must have let down or fallen off frightfully In his game in the latter part of tho match.' ""'l).[WlPilTOilill'lllF'*lir''"ii slTO i Long Is evidently looked upon by the eastern players as an exceptionally good player, as there was not much surprise expressed when he defeated W. . J. Clothier, the former i national champion. 'He has now gained'a .po sition in the final round of the Long wood tournament and will in all prob ability win this event, too. It is to be hoped that he does not fall off In his game as the season advances, for he is making- a wonderful showing,; and if he keeps it up will be ranked. well up the, list. * . . Long and Gardner did not do as well in the doubles as was expected. It was conceded that they would have a hard row to hoe to -win the - eastern doubles; but, after the way they played as a team In the Seabrlght tournament nobody looked for them to be put out of ■ the .running by a team like Little and Touchard. The California boys had! been picked by a number of the eastern experts to win the doubles/and it was a great surprise .when they met defeat. ..' * Thomas Bundy, who will, with Mc- Loughlin, represent the Pacific states in the: preliminary tournament to the national- doubles at / the Onwentsia courts, now on his way to Chicago and : will also strive to bring back some titles to California. Bundy made the best showing of any of the coast players in the east; last year, but the other * boys have gone back; with the determination to outdo him this year, and* from the way Long has started Bundy will have to go some to get the third -position* this year. ' Bundy will first be seen in action In the>western championship, where he .will defend hla title In.the singles. Long and McLoughlin will part com pany after this week for a while, as the 'former will play in the New York championship and the i latter will go to the western championship. The preliminary tournament to the national doubles championship will be gin August 1, and if Mc Loughlin and Bundv play their game * they should win the event and the right to chal lenge the; national champions. Hackett and Alexander. The Pacific states team has been the winner of this preliminary tournament for the last two years, and as neither of the winning teams were as strong a combination as . this year's team, 5 there is no reason why victory should not again be ours. McLoughlin and James won the event the first year and Bundy and Hendricks won" last year. -' X »,—_., There will be a'strong array of Cali fornia tennis players at the Onwentsia courts this week, as Miss Hazel Hotch klss \ and Miss • Florence * Sutton ; will both -be on hand; and they . will un doubtedly sweep everything before them iin . the women's events. /Charles Foley, the local boy. who went north to compete In the champion ship events that are in progress throughout the northwest/ is sweeping everything before him.* Foley was at one K time : one of , the ; best and most promising players ;of the coast/but he retired from the game for several years, and It is only in the last year that he has taken an active part: In the game again. He has come back in fine style and is today playing nearly as well as, he cv«% did. - He will -go from the north to Omaha, where he will endeavor to take the clay.court cham pionship from Mcl Long. Foley plays 5. particularly good game In doubles, and there Is some talk; of his-playing in * the Pacific states tournament next year with McLoughlin.
