Fight Must Be Limited to 10 Rounds and No Decision Will Be Given, if Jess Has His Way About It-Wants Bout in Big City. Chicago, Dec. 20.—Jess Willard will fcox for charity, but not for the cham pionship. He made that clear today when he ■pecified that his proposed "million dollar" Red Cross bout should be lim ited to ten rounds, with no decision end no title at stake. Jess further declared that the fight should be held in some big city, pre ferably Chicago, and should be staged In a ball park, because of the large seating capacity. This would mean that the match would have to be held In warm weather. SUGGESTS A COMMITTEE. The champ suggested that a com mittee of five newspapermen select his opponent. If the government will raises Its em bargo on the Willard-Johnson fight movies, Jess said he would waive all his share of the receipts in favor of the Red Cross. CHANCE FOR OTHERS TO GET POPULARITY New York, Dec. 20.—It isn't too late I ret for some other pugilistic champion to get in on the wave of popularity that seems to be headed toward Jcssj Willard. It wouldn't be at all out of j alignment if Mike Gibbons or Benny | Leonard were to announce he would meet anyone as a semi-windup affair V> the bigger heavyweight title match ►—and donate his services free. In the case of Gibbons it would re quire Ills willingness to meet Mike O'Dowd, the St. Paul youth who bumped A1 McCoy off the pedestal. INSTRUCTING SOLDIERS. Gibbous, while recognized as the best of the middleweights, never has attained the title of champion. Gib bons has been earnestly In favor of the war and has been lending his aid in Instructing soldiers at Camp Dodge, la. Leonard has expressed his patriotism more than once and it would add to the attractions of the card If he and Joe Welling or Johnny Dundee should clash as the introduction to the heavy weight battle. Either of these brawls would add tremendously to the drawing power of the event and would add thousands of dollars to the Red Cross fund. ALEXANDER FAILS j TO GET THE COIN Chicago, Dec. 20.—Grover Cleveland ^Alexander was on his return voyage to Ft. Paul, Neb., today, minus the $10, ©00 ballast he expected to carry away. He wanted that amount as a bonus In the cash and player deal that trans ferred Killifer and him from the Phil lies to the Cubs. Alex admitted he had been unable to make Charles Weeghman, president of the Cubs, see it from his angle, but declared he would return to Chicago after the holidays for another con ference. Then, if he is still unsuccess ful, he will go on to Philadelphia and put it up to William Baker, boss of the Phillies. TEN ROUNDS TO DRAW. Cleveland.
