Teams Battle Good Naturedly in
the Mud for the Kiddies
of St. Vincent's
The Oakland champions and the All
Stars, gathered from the four quarters
of the baseball globe, extended them
selves for the sake of swept charity
yesterday afternoon at Keereation
park. Five rounds of ball were reeled
off, and the champions from over the
bay whisked out a 2 to 1 victory.
The contest was played for the benefit
of St. Vincent's orphanage in San Ra
fael, but only a small rrowd put
in an appearance. This was due to the
wet weather. It rained all the time the i
players were in action, and they must
be given plenty of credit for going
through even five innings. Had it not
been for a good cause, there would
have been no game-of ball at all.
It was unfortunate that weather
conditions interfered, as otherwise, the
fins would have packed the park.
However, the willing workers who had
charge of the benefit disposed of be
tween 6,000 and 7,000 tickets, so the
orphans wil come in for their share.
This in itself ought to be a source of
great satisfaction to the fans and the
players who worked in the wet for
such a cause.
There is not much to say about the
game. The Oaks might have lost it, 1
to 0, had Dr. Moskiman been on his
job in the opening inning; but the
medical tosser's thoughts evidently
were miles removed from a particular
fly that came in his direction. This
particular fly rolled to the clubhouse
while the man of medicine stalled
around. It let two of the Oaks come
The Oaklanders did all their deadly
work in the first spasm. After Leard
had been disposed of Christian planted
the ball against the right field fence
for a stngle. Zacher lifted that par
ticular fly to Moskiman and the doctor
made a few mysterious passes in the
air but failed to get under the ball.
By the time It had been recaptured
Christian was on third and Zacher on
The next man up was Bert Coy, the
man who clinched the pennant for the
Oaks in the final game of the season
by boosting the ball over the right
field fence with one on. Bert did not
have a homer in his bat yesterday,
but he swung in with a very handy
little single which registered both
Zacher and Christian and gave the
Oaks a lead that the Stars never could
As a matter of fact, the Oaks were
not entitled to these runs at all, but
they made them all the same; and any
thing goes in baseball, just as in love
and in war, ?o loner a« you get away
wfth it. The loss of the contest, there
fore, can be traced directly to Moski
man; but as the field was wet and
slippery and the rain was pouring
down hard, they were willing to ex
cuse him.
The Stars got their tally in the

Mandot, Unscathed, Discusses Ambitions
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. s.—Ad Wolgast, face
puffed, eye closed, lips bruised, sore in body and spirit,
declared today that the rankest kind of an injustice
had been done him by the local fight writers in giv
ing the newspaper decision to Joe Mandot after the
pair met here last night. Wolgast sent out today to
his friends and newspaper acquaintances this tele
"I clearly outpointed him. and I have any part of
$10,000 and more that I received for the battle to bet
that I can knock him out in a finish fight. I will
save Mandot for later on, and then I will finish him
in such a hurry that it will make him look like a sell
ing plater.".
Mandot, bearing scarcely a mark, was up bright
and early after spending the night in a Turkish bath.
He simply rested on his laurels, declaring that while
there was no doubt of Wolgast's superiority in the
early rounds, the margin by which Ad lost in the
last five did not entitle him to further consideration
at the lightweight champion of the world. Mandot
"Wolgast still holds the title, but I think the box
ing fans and experts really consider me his most for
midable contender and entitled to the first match in
Barbs , Grievance Brings About
Ruling on Standing of
All Players
In future Rugby seasons one of the
most important committees of the
union will be a registration committee,
the duty of which will be to pass on
the eligibility 'of all players taking
part in Rugby games played under the
jurisdiction of the governing body.
This was brought about at the meet
ing held Monday night, when the Bar
barians asked a ruling from the union
on the refusal of the University of
California to allow Fred Browne to
play on the club team. The club con
tended that neither a university nor
any other organization had the power
to dictate to the clubs what men they
should use in their games, and this
was sustained by the action taken by
the union. To cover any such cases in
the future, the union passed a resolu
tion, to wit:
"That it is the sense of the union
that no objection be made to any player
or players unless such player or play
ers have been disqualified by the union;
that a list of all players must be sub
mitted to the union by all affiliated
bodies five days in advance of the vari
ous games, and that special consent
must be given to men who are not on
this list."
Every organization belonging to the
union must register its players at the
beginning of each season, and any new
men coming into the clubs must be re
ported and registered at once. A reg
istration committee consisting of three
members will be elected at the annual
meeting of the union.
Karnum Griffith, chairman of the com
mittee on international games, reported
that there was a bare possibility that
either an Oxford or a Cambridge uni
versity team, or a combined team from
the two great English universities,
might visit this coast next season.
Griffith has taken the matter up with
YV. W. Hill of Australia, who is to
interview the English universities with
a view to arranging a tour of Aus
tralia for an Knglish team, which will
return home via this state.
The selection committee for the big
game between the All Americans and
the Australians, to be played November
16, was ratified by the union. This
committee, consisting of Pa'mer Fuller,
B. ft Phillips and Joe Rickey, was
elected at the last meeting, but a
technicality was raised on their elec
tion. The discussion «t times got very
heated, but eventually the same com
mittee was re-elected with a large ma
These men will report to the Rugby
union on Tuesday their selections for
the All American team. To assure the
best possible selection, the committee
will consult the coaches of all univer
sity and club teams of the coast.
[Special Dispatch lo The Call]
which the championship is at stake. Ad was in great
form in the first four rounds and his style puzzled me.
I am willing to admit that he is a strong fellow, and
at times he rushed me off my feet; but after the
fourth round he tired, and he was hanging on to
avoid punishment at the bell in the tenth. Had the
fight gone two or three rounds longer I believe I
could have knocked him out. Even this is not sure,
however, as he has wonderful recuperative power,
and he might have come back when he got his 'sec
ond wind.'
"I want, of course, to get a match over the long
route with him. I believe that if we both sized up as
we did last night I would stop him before the limit.
I became stronger the further the bout progressed.
Wolgast is a very easy man to hit. I can outbox him
and hold him even until the end of that time when he
tires, and then I believe I can knock him out.
"I have asked Manager Coleman to pass up every
thing in the line of easy money and bend all his ener
gies to a return match with Wolgast. I believe that
I will be the next champion of the world."
Mandot wore his usual modesty. The entire city
is virtually at his feet today and he can have the key
to the city hall.

His Boxing Future Seems to Run
Along the Lines of High
The Wolgast-Mandot fight in New Or
leans did not relieve the local light
weight tight situation even a trifle.
The fans are just as much up in the air
now as they were a month ago. No
body knows whether Wolgast is even
coming to San Francisco. He never has
shown much love for this city in the
past. lie always liked its money, but
that let him out.
Eddie Graney, the promoter who holds
the November permit, declares that he
has nothing to offer. He is a veritable
man of mystery. If his plans are al
ready well formed, he Is keeping them
away from the public. They say that
he is making frantic endeavors to sign
up Wolgast and Willie Ritchie, but he
only shakes his head and smiles the
smile of a very wise man.
Nobody can figure Jim Coffroth in this
deal. He may play the winning card
and he may lay off altogether. It is
quietly whispered that Coffroth has
about lander Wolgast and Mandot for a
return match in Daly city this month,
but there was no chance of verifying
this last night. Coffroth is not going to
tell any state secrets until he is sure
"where he is at."
The action of Wolgast, however, is
bound to make the-local fans sore. The
latest dispatches say that he will visit
Los Anseies first, and there make over
tures to Uncle Tom McCarey for a tight
with the winner of the bout between
Mandot find Rivers, which is on the list
for Thanksgiving afternoon. Thi-s may
be only hearsay, and it may be the
It is very evident that Wolgast is
playing a game of holdup. He prob
ably realizes now that he Is about
through and that his next long stand
will be his last one. Naturally enough,
he is going tn to get as much money
I v he can for this crucial mixup. With
his manager. Tom Jones, he is bent
upon feeling out all the promoters, and
he may start a bidding contest among
If Wolgast runs true to his past
form he certainly will not fight either
in this city or in Los Angeles this
month. The pace has"been too strong
for him. He realizes fully as well as
any of them that he can not go the
route as he used to go in the days
when the championship title was a
novelty with him. He feels himself
slipping and he ie going to make the
best of it.
Willie Ritchie is still the busiest of
the challenging brigade. He is just
aching and twisting and waiting for
the chance to jump in with the cham
pion. He believes that he has a chance
and that he will be successful. So does
his Oakland rival, Frankie Burns, for
that matter. tThey are all Jumping at
the tottering champion now. It is a
foregone conclusion that he is all
