Sport and Society Section Sport and Society Section New York Giants Keep Up Winning Streak; Yankees are Unable to Win Wekh May Get Chancfe t World's Title lightweight Champion of England, After Many Attempts, Expects to Meet Willie Ritchie Near Vancouver on Labor Day. By THOS. FOR three years Freddy Welsh, the British lightweight champion, has been trying to get on a cham pionship match in this country, bat without success. In 1910 he came over here and tried to match up with Bat tling Nelson and then Ad Wolgaqt. bnt never succeeded in getting near his goal, until 1911, when be was snatched with Wolgast at Los Angeles. The ill ness of Wolgast prevented the contest and Willie Ritchie was substituted, Welsh winning tie boat on points. Then came the match between Ritchie and Wolgast for the title and Willie won it. "Welsh, unable to get on a title match here, returned to England to try and wipe out the defeat he suffered pre viously at the hands of Matt Wells Ifor the British title. Freddy finally got Ms rival into another match and on No ember 11, 1912, he turned the tables, defeating Wells. Later he defeated Hughie Mehegan. of Australia, and Thereby won the lightweight champion ship of Europe and also Australasia. With the title of two countries at his belt. Freddy returned to the states and once more began a campaign for a title match and this time it looks as though he will succeed, for from reports re reived by the writer, he will meet Ritchie in a world's championship match at a point near Vancouver, B. Cl, Labor day. It will be the first real in ternational match of the kind since Kid Lavigne fought in England some pars ago Of course this all depends upon Ritchie winning from Rivers at Sin Francisco July 4. The scene of the encounter will be at Bnsrhouse, about eight miles out of "V ancouver, and the arena will seat over 7000 pecple. The match is as good as made no . it all depends upon the outcome of the big holiday bout. The w ight will in all probability be 135 I ounds, which will suit both nicely, al x lough Welsh can make the 133 with out any bother. If the boys do come together it will be a contest worth seeing, for both tre different style boxers, which means that a good bout will result. Welsh has more cleverness than Ritchie, while the latter is the more aggres se and stronger, the proper com binations to bring about a cracker jack battle. It will also decide once Kilbane Is Now a Lonesome Fighter Feathti weight Champion fights Himself Oat of a Fortune by EHmnatiBg All Boxers in His Class. LOS ANGELES, Calif, July 3. Johnny Kilbane, .featherweight champion is in the most extraor dinary predicament that any cham pion ever found himself. He is bo brilliantly, sparklingly, bewilderingly : lever that the public doesn't care to see bim box. He is the lonesomest fjRhter who ever lived. No promoter cares to risk much on a Kilbane fight because no feather weight can be found near enough fc KtlWtffiTa TSrss to make it even inter esting. A Kilbane fight resembles more than anything else, an exhibition of shadow boxing with one entirely su perfluous person in the ring. Geafc What He DM te 'Kb.

AXDREWS- and for all time the world's cham pion in the lightweight class, s- Won't some one please have the bcxing clubs on the coast -or Domi nick Tortorich at New Orleans ar range for a series of middleweight bcxing matches to decide the cham pionship? Not 10 round boats, but contests of 20 rounds where the men will have a chance to decide ea points and get a referee's decision. It is a Joke the way the title is being hurdled around at the conven ience or tne miauieweigni upinuiu. Ever since the late Stanley Ketchel held the title there "lias been a dis pute regarding it. Billy F&pke was next in line, but the defeat of Papke by Johnny Thompson in Australia took it away from Billy and Johnny became too heavy to even defend it. With a dozen fighting for the right to claim the title there was lots of work ahead, but it finally simmered down to about four men. Jack Dillon, Jimmy Clabby, Eddie McGoorty and Frank Klaus. Dillon and Klaus met at Indian apolis May 29, last, and the Hoosier had the best of it on points, but It was of only 10 rounds duration and there is no telling what might happen in a longer fight. Clabby and Mc Goorty met at Denver recently and the newspapers disagreed, some call ing it a draw -while others gave it to Clabby. They met again at Butte, Mont., June 13 and the referee awarded the decision to Clabby in a 12 round argument. However, It was not long enough to reach a decisive verdict, but from the work of all four men it seems that Clabby and Dillon have. Of the quartet Clabby is the cleverest, but he lacks about eight pounds of the middleweight limit and that Is quite a handicap to a man. although Jimmy has shown wonderful form in all his recent battles and reminds one of Kid McCoy very much. The coast and New Orleans art the only places; where marathon bouts are held and the promoters of those clubs would do the public a big favor if they would only arrange to stage a series oi Douts oetween these men and let fans have a real champion middleweight. It is the only fair way. Match up Dillon and Klaus and McGoorty and Clabby in bouts of 20 rounds each. Then let the two winners meet for the final. has to confess his dtscouragemeBt about the situation. T am disappointed In my position as champion of the world. he said.

"I can't see why I should be pun ished by the public because these boys can't hit me. "Well, I'm ready to fight as hard as anybody fought in a ring the first time I find a boy who ' can do some thing. It seems a shame I should be blamed because I box scientifically in stead of slamming around In the ring like a roustabout on a wharf.'

EMets Says He Will Kot Think of Tradiag Hfe Sotfcpaw Pitcher Until He Is Ready to Qmt Baseball. CHICAGO. HI, July 3. When Charles H. Bbbets la ready to re tire from baseball and sell his Brooklyn Superbaa, then he will trade southpaw Napoleon Rucker. But so long as he is president and big mogul of the Dodgers, he will not think of trading or releasing his brilliant hurler. A "startling story from Chicago Cubs was to the effect that the Chi cago Cubs were to hand over Roger Bresnahan to the Superbaa in exchange for Nap Rucker. Added paragraphs in the yarn came forth with the information that Bb bets wanted to strengthen his catch ing department and be supplied with a manager if Dahlen failed r quit Nix ea Trade Stuff. Now comes the answer from Charles H. Ebbets. "What me trade Rucker for Bres nahan?" said Ebbets. "No, not yet I don't know who started the story, but I saw it when we were in Chicago. The Cubs or nobody else have a chance to get Rucker from my club. I cant see where I would strengthen the Superbas in getting Bresnahan for Rucker, and I'm not trying to weaken the team." Like Ed Koney in St Louis, Nap Rucker affords plenty of gossip and news for the scribes and fans in Brooklyn during the winter session. Annually he is traded to one of the big clubs, usually it is New York, but every spring he comes along- with the Superbas and pitches his share of the victories. Until this year Rucker always has had a joke team behind him. and his percentage of victories never amounted By Scar mkmMam PTVsVNXTfosj ZMf'se Hi ul I si jm? IS HassT 'I bbBssbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbsbHI f'i AndChd You Ever NOTICE V 7&AT &G7Zjt4 to much. Now the southpaw Is getting support with the result that he is winning his share of the games. Ebbets has had a tough rime try ing to gather together a 'winning ag gregation. For years he has scoured the minors, from one end to the other, and has developed some nifty looking kids. For a year or two they would be sensations, and then something would happen. The worst break was when Ebbets lost Harry Lumley and Tim Jordan. About three or four years ago Lumley was considered the greatest outfielder in the game and Jordan a marvel of a first baseman. Brooklyn didn't have much of a team, and the high mag nates wanted Lumley and Jordan. One summer Barney Dreyfuss of fered Ebbets 325,000 for the pair. The Giants came back with a bid of $30. 000 cash for the two, but Ebbets wouldn't sell the pair. In the midst of all the bidding Lumley stole second one day, and in sliding turned his knee. Later on, Jordan suffered a similar accident and it was only a short time until Ebbets lost both men completely. Lumley never recovered and now is switching around in the New York State league. Jordan rested a year and now is playing in the International league. Ebbets is happy today. He has a team that was picked seventh or eighth last winter, but which now is in third place.
