Mill Today May Develop a New Lightweight Champion
Pugilistic World Is
Keyed to High Pitch
Wolgast's Performances Have Not
Been Up With Contender's
Joe Mandot. the New Orleans lightweight, will be given his first oppor
tunity to win the lightweight championship when he meets Ad Wolgast
today in the southern city. This bout holds the attention of the entire pugi
listic world, as there is a feeling in the air that a new lightweight champion
might be developed today. The chances of Mandot winning the crown are
not exceedingly bright, as the bout is a limited 10 round affair and the
referee is prohibited trora rendering
a decision. To win the championship
Mandot must either knock Wolgast
out or beat him into a state where
the referee is forced to stop the con
test. Otherwise he must win on a
disqualification. The New Orleans boy
figures to give Ad a boxing: lesson for

His showings have been miserable, and
With each succeeding fight he has :
shown less form. He has had a couple j
of short fights with boys that could be j
classed as novices, in both of which

pion. which is something

satisfactory ending, the champion win- i

was not a murmur.
Mandot and Willie Bitchie hooked up;
it New oj-lcans some months ago. The
vent 10 rounds and the news
papers declared that Ritchie had the;
better of the battle. In the last couple
)f rounds he had Mandot in a bad way,
md reports had it that he would have;
finished his man in a few more rounds.
In the early fighting Mandot made
an excellent showing. His boxing was
a revelation. Ritchie has a high re
gard for Mandot's prowess as a tighter
in! picked him when he was matched
■o box Jor Rivera in the south.
There Is very little ratting on the
nutcotne of the battle in this <-ity. A
few bet? have been registered at even
money. The fans of this city are not
much in favor of no decision bouts.
They have been accustomed to seeing
contests of long duration, where the
referee is allowed to render a verdict.
Willie Ritchie is deeply interested in
the outcome of todays match, as he
has hopes of meeting the winner in
this city on Thanksgiving day. Man
ager Nolan is talking fight with the
nroinot > rs, but he is not signing for
:hem. He Is holding back, awaiting
nitil WoigMt and Mandot settle their
ilfferenres. and then he probably will
go after the winner.
Promoter Eddie Graney is anxious to
match Ritchie and Burns, but so far
ho has not been successful. If Ritchie
can get either Wolgast or Mandot he
will certainly pass up Burns, as lie
realizes that, either of them would
prove a better attraction than the Oak
i a ruler.
Burns has had some differences with
hia manager, Grant Gorman, and they
have parted. It looks as though Burns
I g ! adviser when lie parted
with Gorman, as the latter is a 'iean

Burns, and a great deal of credit is due
him for Burns , present standing in the

When Gorman took Burns in hand

been badly mauled by the champion,

serond baseman of the tit. I»uis Na

fer with the club management with a
view to assuming charge in place of
Roger Bresnahan, recently deposed.
It is not known what offer will he

dered the management of the Cincin

expected the local owners will exceed
that offer.

Dixie Fans Bet Their Bank Rolls on Mandot
Champion Says Joe Must Show 'The Punch'
NEW ORLEANS, La., Nov. 3.—Both Joe Mandot
and Ad Wolgast, the lightweight champion, wound up
their training today for their 10 round bout, which
takes place tomorrow night at the Pelican baseball
park. Despite the fact that Wolgast appears to be in
great trim, the local enthusiasts have installed Mandot
the favorite in the betting. A considerable amount of
money will change hands on the fight.
Wolgast's supporters are taking up all wagers
they can get at the prevailing odds, and before the
men enter the ring tomorrow the odds probably will
shift to the champion. Although the bout is sched
uled to go only 10 rounds, there is a possibility that a
new lightweight champion will be crowned ere Tues
day morning.
Mandot has been making great strides in the
lightweight division during the last year and is con
sidered the equal of Wolgast. He lacks the punch,
however, which is the principal factor in a fight of
this distance.
Many Late Season Games Were
Spoiled When He Didn't
Show His Phiz
The bushers would have had a bigr
day yesterday—but for the rain. The
result of the weather man's allotment
was very discouraging to them, how
ever, and the park diamonds were idle,
as were those in tiie various other
sections of the city.
It is estimated that at least 60 fair
ly important games between well
known local and country clubs had to
be put over.
The season is drawing to a close at
that, but if the weather continues fine
for the next few Sundays there will
be some action for the youngsters. In
the meantime, the four clubs of the
city league will inaugurate their sea
son at Recreation park a week from
next Sunday afternoon. and the
chances are that they will also start
a winter league on the other side of
the bay.
Trans bay Tossers Quail
OAKLAND. Nov. 3.—The failure of
Old Sol to be a good sport and give
the diamond enthusiasts a chance put
the wet blanket on the many amateur
contests scheduled for this side of the
bay today. With the. exception of a
few nines the diamonds are occupied
by as many reams as started at the
beginning of the season, and many of
the nines will continue their activity
during the winter sessions. Several
brave tossers tried to make it a go to
day, but fell down on wet grounds
and rain.

OAKLAND. Nov. 3. —The baseball team

centage column of the league, beating
out teams from the Spartan, IVAllegro
and Sphinx clubs. The winning team
will bp rewarded with a silver trophy,
and both nines are practicing to cop the
prize. The contest is in charge of Man

called off by the Watsonville manager,
as the grounds were in no condition

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
A record breaking crowd will, witness the con
test. Special trains arriving tonight carried hundreds
of fans from all parts of the south to the scene of
the battle. No bout contested in this city since the
days when the great ring generals were scheduled to
meet here has created as much interest as this setto.
"A man who has not the punch may take the
championship away from me," remarked Wolgast,
when informed that Mandot was a hot favorite, "but it
will be when I am asleep.
"I have watched Mandot's battles. He is a clever,
game little fellow, but he never has shown me 'the'
punch—and it will take that punch to put me away in
10 rounds or a hundred.
"You may have noticed that all these fellows are
champions until I get through with them. Then the
bears are not nearly so bloodthirsty. Mandot may be
an exception, but they have got to show me."
The men are at weight or near enough to make
it without trouble by the time they weigh in.
Olympic Club Hike Develops
Two Sharply Defined Fac
tions, Thus Designated
There are two new "factions in the
Olympic club now—the "quitters" and
the "game guys?' They organized
these crowds yesterday on the hike
over to Muir woods from Mill Valley.
The "quittere" did not even start, be
cause they were afraid of wetting their
dainty pink toes. The "game guys"
went the whole route arid back again,
and now they are telling everybody in
town about it.
The "game guys" outnumbered the
"quitters" nearly two to one, Which
speaks well for the stamina of the
club members. Thirty-five of them
made the trip, while the faint hearted
ones numbered 2 - _'. Countless mem
bers of the club did not show up at
all, but they have not be«»n classified
as yet. They will be given a ehaitce
later on to make good or turn back.
The bunch took* an early boat for
Sausalito. There was no rain falling
until they reached Mill Valley. Then
It began to come down in torrents and
there was much stalling and sidestep
The two factions were quickly
formed. The "quitters'" took the next
train back to Sausalito, while the
"game guys" started right up the hill
for the woods.
The rain did not bother them in the
least either. They seemed to enjoy
every step of the hike. They struck
up a brisk gait at the start and part
of the time tliey were going at a dog
Luncheon was served et the woods.
and after a brief rest the "game guys"
lift the trail for the valley again, re
turning home shortly after nightfall.

"Some of the local fans may wonder

Southpaw Abies Hit
Hard by Teammates
Champion Oaks Lambast Their Big
Twirler and Defeat All Stars
The Oaks and the All Stars are apparently bo anxious to play tne game «>.
baseball that they trotted out on the transbay lot yesterday morning before a
corporal's guard of fans and reeled off six and a half innings of the national
pastime. Once again the champions of the Pacific Coast league gave the mixed
collection the once over, sto 3. The afternoon game was called off on account
of rain, but it will be played tomorrow afternoon. They did manage to sandwich
in some fairly good ball between
showers. The field was sloppy, slushy
'and slippery, and, of course, none of
ithem took any desperate chances in
running after hard grounders or slid
ing into the bases, but the old spirit
of rivalry was there all the time and
the few bugs who put in an appearance
were treated to quite a little action.
Harry Abies, the massive southpaw
from Texas, who has been given much
credit for pitching the Commuters into
the pennant, consented to oppose his
own team for the first time in his life.
The big fellow was happy enough for
five Innings, because he looked every
inch a winner, but hie teammates gave
him a fine lacing in the sixth.
Abies never will forget that eventful
spasm. It netted the transbay outfit
no less than four runs and as many
hits. Those who were not there might
imagine that these tallies were the
result of bungles and blunders, but
they were not. They were all well de
The big Texan never was noted as a
spitball pitcher, so when the old sphere
became well soaked he was about help
less. Zacher, Coy, Tiedemann and
Killilay tapped the best he had for
safeties. Half of these bingles came
with men on the bases and half of them
were for two bags, sf it can readily
be imagined how much damage they
Abies tried his best. There is no way
to get by this. He used his fast ones
am] his curves, and varied with slow
ones, but they all appealed to the Oaks.
Apparently the champions were bent
upon finishing up their work in a man
ner fitting their exalted position. They
had no more regard nor respect for
Abies than they would have had for
the most lowly busher in the land.
Ping Bodie didn't even put a dent in
the fence. Tnstead he lifted the ball
I right over it for a home run. Fortu
nately for the Oaks there were no All
Stars lingering on the sacks when Ping
produced his mighty drive.
The Stars copped off a tally in the
opening , frame without the aid of a
hit, and the Oaks came back In the
second by rapping Abies for three in
a row. It remained a tie until the
third, when Ping gave the ball a ride
over the fence; and when the Stars
produced another in the fourth the
Oaks appeared beaten —but one never ,
can tell in a ball game until the last
man h.'is been declared out.
Killilay pitched a fine article of ball
for the Oaks, holding the Stars to five
scattered hits and walking only two

Don't Forget the Great
Charity Double Header
The gamp between the All Ftars and
the Oaks that was scheduled yesterday
afternoon was postponed on account of
rain and will be the feature of a double
header contest Tuesday afternoon at
Recreation park. St. Vincent's orphan
apre. San Rafael, was to have been the
recipient of yesterday's proceeds, and
the double header will be for the benefit
of that institution.
The Olympic , club will tackle the
Fraser Photo club In the first game of
the double header. The promise of a
speeay battle between these two fast
amateur teams as a curtain raiser for
the production to be given later by the
cream of professional baseball has to
some extent dulled the pain of yester
day's postponement.
Father Laurence Murphy Is actively
interested in the game and will lead
the orphanage fans at the contest.
Both games will be for a single ad
mission, and with fair weather it 1*
believed that the double header wUfl ,
result in a big sum for the institution.

In his day Hayes was Just as bright
a star on the local diamond as are
Gus Hetling. Harry Abies, Del Howard
