Australian Waratahs Will Play the California Varsity Again Today
<Local Riii£ Fans Fear Wolorast May Show Un Here Minus Lightweight Crown
No Certainty That Joe Mandot Will Not Put
Extinguisher on Champion Monday
The latest fear of the fight fans is that Ad Wolgast may show up in San Francisco minus the
lightweight championship crown that he plucked from the head of Battling Nelson over in Richmond
nearly three years ago. The grounds for this fear are well founded, too. Wolgast is going to fight
Joe Mandot down in New Orleans next Monday night.
Now .the champion is liable to be whipped by the first live boy they send in against him. We do
not know much about this Mandot lad here in San Francisco, but from all accounts he is a sturdy
youngster, with plenty of aggressiveness and stamina—the very man, in fact, who is liable to relieve
the lightweight king of his laurels.
Wolgast is in danger of toppling any time he starts against anybody who can go the route. His
recent performances have demonstrated beyond the slightest doubt that he is but a shadow of the
Wolgast we have known so well. Like the rest of them, he has *'
started to slip after holding the title for a couple of years. This
seems to be about the limit.
Promoter Jim Coffroth is confident enough that he will have
Wolgast here for his next month's attraction, although he is not so
confident as to who will fight the champion. When Coffroth heard of the
New Orleans match that Wolgast had made, however, he immediately put on
his worrying cap. Apparently the promoter figures it out as the rest of
It would be a great humiliation,
should lo?e that crown to Mandot
inside of 10 rounds. Of course, if the
fight goes the limit there will be a
good opportunity to stall out even if
he is outpointed. There is always a
chance to raise a cry, and Wolgast is
the boy for it.
In the first place, they do not allow
referees' decisions "ti the southern city.
Therefore, a man must really be
knocked out ther*> in order to be beaten
at all. It goes without saying that the
New Orleans '/ewspapers and all the
New Orleans /ports will be with their
home town lad to a man. On the other
hand, Wolgast, being the champion, can
tome out with a statement that he was
not trying and that he only went into
the battle to warm himself up.
Coffroth fears that Mandot may sail
into Wolgast so fast and beat him up
to such an extent that he will not star
as the great attraction he has been in
the past. There is a whole lot of logic
in this too. Wolgast has loomed up
as the master of lightweights so long
that the fans have fallen for him as
nearly an invincible man of his inches.
Let somebody put it over him once,
however, and he will begin to wane
very fast.
Mandot, while an agf-ressive. clever
little fellow, can not be ranked as a
knocker out. He never has put the
crusher on any man of importance. The
fight that really did more to make him
tan any other was that one with Joe
Kivers down in Los Angeles six weeks
ago. and then he did not display a
punch.
Who will be Wolgast's opponent if he
does fight here next month?
This is another puzzler. Some of
them believe that Frankie Burns will
do the honors, while others say that it
will be Mandot over again, or else
Harlem Tommy Murphy. However, the
Job of selecting an opponent for the
champion will be soft enough, provided
he comes here and' signs up for the
mill. • , ~
Willie Ritchie really would make the
most attractive match, but Coffroth
vows and declares that he will have
nothing to do with the local boy so
long as he is tied up with Nolan.
Ritchie and Nolan are still up on the
latter's Lake county ranch, and. ac
cording to the latest advices, Ritchie's
hand is healed again and he is ready to
step out and fight on short notice.
Mandot and x Wolgast right back
again would make a great dish for the
fans of this city, provided, of course,
that their 10 round meeting in New
Orleans is at all even. Mandot must be
regarded as a lightweight contender,
even though he has not been knocking
nnv of them out. The way he pounded
Rivers all around the Los Angeles ring
shows that he has some class.
Now, the only thing for Coffroth
and the San Francisco fight fans to
do is to stick around and await the
outcome of the battle down in New
Orleans next Monday evening. Should
■Wolgast be knocked out. they will hail
a new champion; but should the bout
end in a manner unsatisfactory, or at
all even, then we probably will see
them right back here next month.

HARVARD WORKING
TO DOWN TIGERS
Saturday's Game Will Be Hard
Old Rub for Crimson and
Princeton Is Favorite
[Special Dispatch io The Call]
NEW YORK, Oct. 29.—Some brilliant
open field work and some splendid
kicking may be expected Saturday
when Princeton and Harvard meet at
the Stadium at Cambridge. Both teams,
because of light weight In the line,
have gone far ln the development of
the open game and both have danger
ous men In the art of making held
goals. These men got in some good
work against weekend foes, Hobey
Baker scoring a goal from placement
against Dartmouth and Brlckley drop
kicking three goals against Brown.
This man Brickley. according to the
Boston sharps, is the best all round
back that Harvard has developed in
years, his kicking naturally being of
unusual value to the team.
The Harvard scouts at Princeton
Saturday noticed how heavily penalties
counted against Dartmouth because of
the Tigers' alertness in taking advan
tage of every such situation. The
tackling of Baker, after he had sig
naled for a fair catch, gave the youth
an opportunity to make a free kick,
and he promptly booted the ball over
the bar.
The main task at Princeton this week
will be the strengthening of the de
fense to meet the power of the attack
of that great crimson back field trio,
Wendell, Brickley and Ilardwlck. They
are much stronger than the Dartmouth
backs and the latter were able to make
substantial gains against the Tigers
until confusion overcame them. Prince
ton can be counted upon to do a lot of
cementing as a result not only of the
lessons learned in the Dartmouth con
test, but those gleaned from the Har
vard-Brown game by several compe
tent young men.
Harvard coaches are by no means
confident of beating Princeton Satur
day and are going to get the team into
condition for the game tf good, hard
drills will bring about this result. Paul
Withington, the center coach, says that
Harvard has shown beyond doubt that
it possesses considerable strength and
is no longer an untried organisation.
The hard work is needed to give it a
chance of beating Princeton.
Satisfied thut the defense has been
perfected or nearly so that it will be
safe now to let it shift for itself, Yale
is at last turning to the development
of an offense. Of the big three, Yale
alone has failed to show impressive
ground gaining ability or even scor
ing commensurate with what ground
gaining does.
Until now Tale has been dependent
largely upon straight rushing, alter
nating with a shift that lost its effec
tiveness quite some time ago. Playing
against second rate teams, Flynn,
Philbin and the rest have
been able to score often enopgh to
stfeve off defeats, but the coaches have
not much respect for Princeton and
Harvard to depend upon this "stuff"
to win from them.
So the Jj"lis have asked Tom Shevlin
and "Pudge" Heffelinger to come east
and fix an attack that will be worthr
of the name.

Blue and Gold Supporters Look for a Better
Showing in Second Contest
the second game of their three game series. The game will be played on California field and will start
at 3:30 o'clock. In their first meeting, which took place last Saturday, the Australians ran up a score
of 18 points against the varsity team. Most of the points, however, were scored after the field had
become very wet from the downpour of rain, and the blue and gold supporters look for a more even
game tomorrow. During the first 10 minutes of play last Saturday, while the field was still dry, the
varsity succeeded in holding its own very well, and while it is hardly expected that Coach SchaerTer*s
men will come out on the long end of the score, they are expected to render a good account of them
selves. California field is again in good condition after the rain, and if the remaining hours before the
game are not marked by another visit from Jupiter Pluvius, there will be no complaint on the score of
a muddy field. The team that has been announced by Captain
Prentice for the game is, with one exception, identical with that
which played last Saturday. W'-.lker, the fast halfback, who was
compelled to leave the field on account of an injury, has not recov
ered and the position will be occupied by Flynn. Griffin, the brilliant
front ranker, who was also compelled to leave the field on account of injury,
will appear again in the lineup. These injuries call to mind the fact that the
reserve squad of the Australian team is now reduced to two men, all of the

--i
day Nighfs Event
Willie Hoppe, the Butchertown
lightweight, will be fighting for his
friends as well aa himself Friday night
when he meets Tommy McFarland at
Dreamland pavilion. The southsid*
friends of the great little fighter are
ready to go the limit on the chances
of their favorite, and Commissioner
Tom Corbett already has received
commissions to place on Hoppe.
The coming contest Is sure to result
in some spirited betting, as on one hand
there is a popular fighter who has
made many friends by his aggressive
ring tactics, and on the other a sea
soned scrapper, who has met some of
the best men in his division. Hoppe
is a novice who has displayed sensa
tional form during his short career
in the ring. He seems to be a natural
fighter and in the fights he has had
locally he has shown great promise.
McFarland has met the beet in his
class, including Champion Ad Wol
gast. He went 10 rounds with the
champion and held him even. He I
confldent that he will stop the win
ning streak of the Butchertown boy
and predicts that he will accomplish
the task by a knockout. McFarland
has show his best form against fight
ers of Hoppe's type.
There are seven other bout* on the
Richmond club's card. Ad Zotte, the
bantam weight from Stockton, will
clash with Roy Moore in the special
event. Both boys are shifty perform
ers and should provide plenty of ac
tion.
A couple of ambitious white hopes
clash before the Oakland Wheelmen's
club at Piedmont pavilion tonight.
Frank Moran of Pittsburg will stack
up against Charley Horn, the local
heavy weight.
Moran ls a pleasing performer, as
he does not do much stalling. He likes
to wade in and mix it with hisfpppo
nent. Moran made a hit with the fans
recently by giving Jim Cameron, the
big colored heavy weight, a thorough
walloping in four rounds.
Horn looked like one of the best of
the local white hopes until he went up
against Gunboat Smith, who knocked
him out in four rounds. Since then
the Mission fighter has shown good
form. If he can defeat Moran he is in
line for some good matches.
Joe McGurn and Cliff Lester, a cou
ple of shifty middle weights, will step
six rounds or less. Toby Miller and
Gene West are also carded to go six
rounds. There is a four round bout
scheduled between Knockout Senner
and Jim Ross. Joe Morgan and Joe
Ketchel meet ln the curtain raiser,
which is carded to go four rounds.
Toby Irwin will act as referee.
