COLORADO SPRINGS, Cohx, Ang.
•22.—Keenly realizing that Ms title.
of lightweight champion will be in
danger, FYeddie We^h is putting in
some great licfce at tnaining in pr^
amtion for his twenty round Labor
day battle with Charley White.
Welefa is on the road every morn
ing at 7 o'clock with his trainer and
makes between six and eight miles.
This is followed by an boors work In
his training quarters and eight
rounds of boxing with his sparing
partners. Welsh boxed two rounds
today with Benny Chavez and three
rounds each with Jack Bradon and
Battling Reddy, displaying all his
cleverness before a crowd of 300 en
thusiastic fight fans.
White will not start his boxing
until Wednesday, as he does not be
lieve more than ten days hard train
ing will be necessary to put him in
tip-top shape. Thus far he has con
fined his training mostly to road work
to develop his wind. Charley claims
to be In fine condition now.
Welsh and White met again last
night at the Hayes-Jackson boat at
Ramona. Tbe men were introduced
to the crowd and received a great
hand.
Welsh continues a slight favorite
in the local betting. But the wager
that attracts most attention is the 3
to 1 shot that White won't score a
knockout. There seems to be plenty
of money on both sides of this prop
osition.

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Aug. 22.—
Howard Drew, negro sprinter and
bo'der of the world's record for the
hundred yard dash, has probably run
his last race. Drew is laid up here
today with paralysis, brought on when
he strained himself in the century
dash of a meet at San Diego Saturday.
Drew was a member of the Ameri

games at Stockholm, Sweden, in 1912.
He was formerly a student at a
Springfield, Mass., high school, but of
late has been attending the Univer
sity of Southern California.
Drew holds the record of 9 3-5 for
100 yards and has equalled the record
of :21 1-6 for the 220 yards.
The paralysis is said to be the In
direct result of an injury sustained
by Drew last March while competing
