Little Fellow Lays Off With
the Gloves Despite His
Large Stomach, but
Works in Gym
Ad Wolgast will use every ounce of
the 133 pounds allowed him by the ar
ticles to box Harlem Tommy Murphy.
the Cadillac boy steps into the
rtngr tomorrow afternoon at Colma he
will weigh more than when he boxed
Wore in this vicinity. Whether this
additional height will benefit him, ex
perts of condition and form can uee
their own judgment, but the writer is
the opinion that it will prove a
handicap instead of an advantage.
"olgast looks better physically now
ti'an at any time since his operation
*or a-ppendicitts. which took place
more than a year ago. Hie skin is
<M?ar and It gives every indication of
litalth, and the little fighter remarked
to his manager, Tom Jones, when he
*as awakened yesterday afternoon
after a nap, that he never felt better.
The only complaint that can be made
■ bout Wolgast's condition is the fact
that he ia carrying a bit too much
avoirdupois. He is too large around
tlie stomach and the time is too short
for him to get weight off before
«c enters the ring. With about four
more days of training Wolgast would
be in excellent shape.
Wolgast stepped on the scales yes
terday afternoon before he started" his
session of training and scaled exactly
T>a% pounds. He worked about 30
rnfnutes in the gymnasium. The exer
cises which he went through could not
be termed strenuous. At the conclu
sion of it he jumped on the scales for
the second time and balanced the beam
at 153 3 4 pounds.
He will have no trouble in making
the weight. He will be very little
tnder the mark, which means that Ad
■*»1I be bigger than ever. He seems
to be satisfied with his condition and
Manager Jones has no complaint to
make. The boxing end of the program
tabooed yesterday, as Jones de
<iare«d that it was too near the time*
for battle to take any chances.
Another excuse offered by Jones for
Wolgasfs failure to put on the gloves
was the fact that his left hand was
core and he did not care to take
chances of hurting it any more
thumping the hard head of one of his
sparring partners. While punching
the bag Wolgast did not seem to be
suffering fro ( m a sore mitt, as he
rapped with all his power, and he did
rot seem to favor either hand. The
sore hand story was given out when
Wolgast boxed Ritchie, but it cut no
figure in the battle or outcome of the
Wolgasfs training yesterday con
sisted of shadow boxing, bag punching
•nd he went through a few contortions
while lying on his back on the floor.
The last named exercise was for the
benefit of the stomach muscles, the
l*gs and neck. Ad was rather laggard
when he started exercising, but he
farmed up to his work and put con
siderable vim into it before he fin
In the morning he went on the road.
The same program of training will be
followed today, and it is expected to
bring him well under the mark, so that
he will not have to resort to any severe
measures in making the weight.
It seems funny to talk of Wolgast
making weight, as in the past he
weighed well under the 133 pound
It is only six or eight months ago
"when Wolgast declared that he would
make 128 pounds for Joe Rivers. He
has not developed any since that time.
The increased poundage is the result
of living easily, aQd this weight would
drop off very easily with training.
Wolgast'e wind appeared to be pretty
good yesterday, but he did not go
through the course of trailing , where
by a spectator could get a correct line
on his breathing apparatus. What he
did was no effort to him.
The betting remained at 10 to 8 yes
terday aad the admirers of both fight
era seemed eatisfied with the price.
There was considerable betting and
there are no indications of the odds
fluctuating. It is doubtful if Wolgast
and his manager will bet as much as
they did in the Ritchie fight. Both
have had tough luck in their opera
tions since that time, which has prob
ably slowed them up.
Murphy eased up in his work yester.
day and, outside of a few light stunts
he will go through today, he has prac
tically finished hia training. The New
Yorker looks to be in excellent shape
•and appears to be the better trained of
the two fighters. He is a conscientious
worker and goes about his training
duties in a serious manner. The New
Yorker was at weight when he com
pleted his work.
Among the visitors at Wolgast's
camp was Jim Cwiffin. the referee. He
did not Hold any confab with Wolgast
about the rules, as he said that Wol
gast understood them and that It
would be unnecessary for him to tell
him anything about them.
Jack Wooley. Grant Gorman, Jack
Welsh and a number of other prom
inent sporting men visited the Cadillac
boy to get a line on his condition.

(Special Dispatch to the CaM)
VAIXEJO, Feb. 20.—The Vallejo
pports are all smoked up over the
Washington's birthday bout at Cof
froth's Mission street arena in Daly
City between Ad Wolgast and Harlem
Tommy Murphy and many are prepar
ing to attend.
Chief Carpenter William O'Neil,
U. S. N., of Mare island .and Tommy
Murphy are old friends, as the light
weight scrapper learned his trade at
the Cramp ship building plant when
the navy man was employed there sev
eral years ago. Murphy worked under
Carpenter O'Neil for a year or more.
During that time he made, quite a
name for himself as a boxer and many
of his friends, including O'Neil, pre
dicted a brilliant future for him.
When Murphy found that he was
making good in the fistic game he gave
up his trade end returned to New
York. O'Neil also left the Cramp plant
shortly afterward and was ordered to
the League island yard at Philadelphia,
but he never failed to make up a party
of sports to journey to New York to
see Murphy in bis many bouts in that

Champion Hurdler Reinstated for the Great
Olympic Indoor Meet Tonight
Forest Smithson, the world's record holder for both the 60 yard high and
75 yard low Indoor hurdles, will compete in these events at the Auditorium
tonight in the Olympic club meet. This was made certain yesterday when
Chairman George James of the local registration committee received a telegram
from Chairman K. W. Horning of the Southern association stating that Smith,
son had been reinstated by the southern branch. The reinstatement was
brought about by Smithson, who tele- '■'
graphed the Southern association that
he realized that he had made a mistake
and that the blame for his suspension
rested on himself. He offered to comply
with any request that the Southern
association should place on him and
stated that as he had been kept oft the
American team at Stockholm and out
of competition for nearly a year that
he considered that he had been suf
ficiently punished for his offense.
To this the south replied that if
Smithson would agree? to pay the South
ern association the $25 that was ad
vanced for his expenses and the $4 paid
for his entrance fee in the trials that
his suspension would be lifted. Smith
son immediately telegraphed the money
and late yesterday afternoon his re
lease was received and he was regis
tered by the local committee.
The addition of Smithson should be
one of the big features of the meet to
night, and it will give added prestige
to the two hurdle events in which
Smithson holds both the world's rec
ords. Against Smithson there will be
a classy field, including Jumbo Morris?,
who last year forced Smithson to estab
lish his world's figure in the low
sticks. If Smithson is in his best con
dition, I expect to see him take the 60
yard high hurdles, but in the low tim
bers Morris is going to give him a big
Both races look to be between these
two artists, but Ric Templeton will not
be far in the rear. Smith, the former
Stanford hurdler, is another who should
be well up. Jack Nelson has been out
of competition for some time, and
whether he has retained his speed or
not is a problem. If be is still the same
Nelson, he must also be considered in
the 75 low sticks.
The 75 yard dash is to be a hummer.

Great Ninth Inning Rally by
Berkeley Pulls Game
Out of Fire
The California varsity baseball team
defeated Zamlock'a Independents yes
terday afternoon in a sensational ninth
inning rally. In eight innings but two
men crossed the plate, but in the ninth,
with the score 1 to 1 and after the
visitors had put a man across with
what looked like the winning run, the
varsity came back with two tallies
and the game was theirs. The final
score was 3 to 2.
The game wae well played through
out and though there were numerous
errors the mlecuee w«re more than
made up for by sensational plays.
Webb occupied the mound for the var
sity and served up a fine brand of ball,
repeating his victory of a w«ek ago.
Coach Schaeffer employed his entire
varsity lineup, and, judging from the
way the men are working together
now, they will make a fine showing in
the varsity series with Stanford.
The score was tied, 1 to 1, at the
beginning of the ninth inning. In the
first half Zamlocks put a man across
the plate, when Campi and Tobin hit
safely and Richardson sacrificed. When
the varsity came to bat it looked as
though it would be impossible to over
come the lead.
Goodwin first up was hit by a pitched
ball, Dodson hit safely and Rubke was
safe on an error, filling the 'bags.
Stephens received a free pass, forcing
Goodwin in for one run. An attempted
squeese play ended disastrously and
it looked as though the game would '
go into extra innings. But Giflin, the
slabster for the visitors, gave way
under the strain and a wild pitch let
in Rubke with the winning run. Score:

Former Champion Says Rube

SACRAMENTO, Feb. 20.—James J.
Corbett, former champion heavyweight
of the world, in an interview today,
charges Rube Marquard, former Giant
pitcher, with ingratitude toward Man

"I think some one ought to call this
fellow Marquard," says Corbett. "I
never saw a more aggravated instance
of biting the hand that feeds one.
Marquard says McGraw is jealous of
him. As a matter of fact, Marquard
would be playing on a sand lot except
for Muggsy.
"Marquard has everything except
nerve. He is a quitter. McGraw made
him what he is. He would have been

Mayor Rolph's telegraphic communications from little old New
York took a happy turn yesterday, when, instead of an advisory message
from "My Dear Rudolph," the mayor received word from one of his
kennel men that two of his favorite dogs—Mission Chief and Mission—
had carried off the honors at the New York Kennel club show.
Mission Chief, the message stated, was awarded the first prize for
the best black cocker spaniel in the show, while Mission was returned
winner of the reserve winners* prize. Besides the individual prizes, Mis
sion Chief and Mission were awarded the cup offered for the betf pair
of black cockers and also the cup for the best brace of sporting dogs
Before.Mission Chief and Mission were taken east they made every
dog of their kind in the west "take the gate," and Mayor Rolph believes
they will bring home the bacon from the Boston show, at which they will
be exhibited during the first week in March.
Rolph is very fond of his dogs and was elated to hear of their suc
cess in the New York show.
Sacred Heart and St. Igna
tius to Get Together in
Athletics Again
Sacred Heart and St. Ignatius col
leges, the most prominent Catholic
educational institutions in this city,
will come together in athletic competi
tion for the first time in many years
next Tuesday. For the last 11 years
there has been a lull in their athletic
relations, they having met only in the
Academic Athletic league's basket ball
tournament of the fall of 1910. They
will start their new relations on next
Tuesday night with a basket ball game
to be played on the Rice institute court.
In order to reduce their athletic ac
tivities to order the two schools will
sign an agreement to last for three
years. This agreement will govern all
branches of sport. Basket ball, base
ball, track and football will be con
tested. Brother Timothy of Sacred
Heart consented to send hie team
against the Jesuit five on next Tuesday
only on condition that this agreement
would be signed. This was agreed to
by Father Flaherty and in the near fu
ture the two committees will meet to
draw up the agreement. The Sacred
Heart representatives will be Edward
French '11, John Dennis '14 and Ed
ward McGlade '14. The St. Ignatius
student body has not chosen its repre
sentatives as yet.
Tuesday's game will be for the
Catholic colleges' championship of the
city. Both teams have big followings
and the game is sure to create a lot
of enthusiasm-
Eddie French, chairman of the Sacred
Heart committee, is taking a post grad
uate course in civil engineering at the
college and is also taking charge of
the baseball team. His knowledge of
the game should make him a valuable
man in the coaching line. He will
also play in some of the open games,

Fair Golfers of Claremont Badly Beaten by Clever San
Francisco Players
The ladies' golf team of the San Francisco Golf and Country club again
asserted its superiority over the Claremont Country club's representatives
yesterday on the Claremont links in a decisive victory of 15 points to 6. Th«
only matches won by the Oakland ladies were those by Miss Elsie Eversoa, who
accounted for 3 points to her side —her opponent, Mrs. R. H. Postlethwaite.
having defaulted—and by Miss Alice Knowles, who won 2 points from Mrs.
Scribner—the second nine and aggre
gate—which result was brought about
through the Ingleslde player falling to
sink her short putt on the eighteenth
green. Miss Violet Whitney tied with
Mrs. Gus Taylor. Otherwise hot only
all of the matches, but the entire points
of every match, went to the San Fran
cisco players.
One of the most interesting contests
of the day was between Mrs. C. B.
Wingate, the gracious captain (as the
ladies have votes I can not say cap
tainess) of the Oaklanders, and Mrs.
A. R. Pomnier. Mrs. Wingate captured
the first two holes and divided the
third, fourth and fifth, but the San
Franciscan squared on the seventh
green. The eighth was halved and
Mrs. Pommel-, winning the ninth,
turned 1 up and incidentally annexed
one point for her side.
The victor won the tenth and
eleventh, but lost the twelfth, and the
thirteenth proved fatal to the transbay
leader, for although she played a per
fect 3, her opponent holed from the
edge of the green for a 2, making her
3 up. The next four holes were split,
and the match ended on the seven
teenth, 3 and 1 in Mrs. Pommer's favor.
Miss Chesebrough played again for
her side and won from Mrs. Ford all
of the points possible.
Yesterday's match was a return of
that played at Ingleside last Satur
day, when the San Franciscans won by
15 points to 9. The victors will meet
the Burlingame ladies in the near fu
ture for the triclub championship, the
latter also having scored Awo wins
