NEW YORK, July 18.—Now that
Benny Leonard has been matched
with Champion Freddie Welsh, the
followers of the little Harlem light
weight are getting anxious about
Benny's condition. Only twelve days
remain before the men climb into the
ring at Washington parte and unless
Leonard has been boxing on the sly,
the bell may find the pride of Harlem
somewhat short on speed anji ac
curacy. Fight followers regard the
snapping up of Leonard as a clever
move on the part of the champion.
With the date only twelve days away
Benny will have to work his head off
to get Into the shape he displayed
when he cut the champion to ribbons
in their last encounter.
Johnny Dundee, who Is always In
shape and who always puts up a
whirlwind battle, might have been
given a chance at the champion but
Pollock and Welsh evidently figured
that this la a good time to eliminate
WelaJi has apparently decided to
try and show he is no "cheese" cham
pion for this Friday he is scheduled
to meet Charlie Whits. Chicago heavy

is hardly a chance thQt Ctutrlle can

ley Weeghman, owner of the Chicago
Cubs, and Charley Ebbetts, owner of
the Brooklyn Dodgers, were due to
arrive here today to renew their bid
ding for Charles Herzog, manager of
the Reds.
Previous propositions made by
these magnates were turned down by
the Reds, but row the proposed trade
of Herzog tc the New York Giants
is being held up, they believe they
can land the Ited leader.
Before Ebbetts and Weeghman will
be given a chance to obtain Herzog
either for cash or players or a com
bination of both, strenuous efforts
will be made by Garry Herrmann to
come to terms with President Hemp
stead of the Giants.
Herrmann is anxious to land
Christy Matthewson as hir. next man
ager, but will not accept him with
the New York club retaining the right
to recall him at the end of two years,
a condition Hempstead now Insists
upon. Herrmann expects in get nto
touch with Hempstead today. The
latter may come here today.
Before Herzog can be Traded or
sold to any club except the Giant*,
Me consent must be obtained. Ho
has agreed to go to the Giants. Mc
Graw has promised him a three year
contract at $10,000 a year, with a
bonus of $3,000. Herzog has been
drawing $10,000 a year as player and
manager. H.s contract reads that he
cannot be traded or sold without his

members of the Iowa conference.
Carleton is a member of the Minne

schools in other states. Ripon and

Expense Is Drawback.
The conference would furnish Inter

throughout the west. The only draw
back is the expense caused by the
distances between the colleges. It is
understood that some of the colleges
have the necessary funds in the ath

will find It necessary to raise more
money to enter.
