for its games here and only passes is
sued by the league or the Las Cruces
club will be honored. The grounds are
leased by the Las Cruces club and they
have the same control as though the
games were played at Las Cruces.
Manager Bill Hurley did not know,
Tuesday morning, whom he would send
in against Phoenix in the opening game
but thought the Job would fall to Ray
Kallio. McCreery was the likely cholcs
for the visitors.
Umpire Harry Kane is at Douglas
this week: umpire Sterling at Tucson
and Lou Mahaffey at 1 Paso. A last

From the standpoint of attendance.

Indications Are That Ten
Round Bout Will Precede
a Title Contest.
Milwaukee, Wis.. May IS. Jim Cof
fey, the Irish giant, as he is called, is
setting a fast pace among the heavy
weights and It looks as though he will
roroe Jess Willard to match up with
him for the title before long. No one
denies Jess the righz to lay off for sir

championship battle, for all others be

title back" to the white race and in his
(Case an exception would be made by
all sporting men, but It will hardly be
necessary.
Coffey's quick knockout of Al Reich,
who was looked upon as a most prom
ising candidate for heavyweight honors
by the sporting men of Xew York, has
put the Irishman near the- top of the
division aside from the, title-holder
Jess Willard and it will be a case now
of the hopes getting busy for a try
out with Jim before asking for a try
at champion Willard.
Billy Gibson, manager'of Coffey, has
announced' that-he would go-after Jess
for a title match, but the Indications
are that they will first trieet In a ten ,
rouna no decision bout In New York
City. Then, if Coffey shows strong. It
will mean a championship match over
the 10 round route or even longer.
Frank Moran, the Pittsbnrger who
fought Jack Johnsori in Paris nearly a
year ago and recently defeated Bom
bardier Wells in London, sends word
that he will soon leave for the United
States to challenge Willard for the title.
Griffiths vs. Ritchie.
It Is probable that Johnny Griffiths,
the Ohio Champion lightweight, will
be matched up with Willia Ritchie, the
former champion, for a 12 round contest
at Akron. Ohio., on July i. The weight
will likely be 1J5 at 3 oclock. if the'
match Is made, although Ritchie mav
demand a higher poundage. He refused
to make the weight for a return match
with Charlie White, although Willie
declared himself that he could make
the weight without trouble, bHt that
he would not permit White to dictate to
him as to what poundage should be.
Wolqrmt Fights Welsh.
Ad Wolgast the Michigan bearcat
and former champion, is to have an
other whirl at Freddy Welsh, the title
holder, in one of those ten round con
tests without decision. They -will meet
before the South Side A. C. of Milwau
kee, at the Elite skating rink. May IS.
The contest with Welsh has been post
poned twice, having been originally i set
for May 4. Should Wolgast be able to
jzo along all right he will in all proba
bility be matched with Charlie White
or Leach Cross for some time in July.

"Knockouts I Have Seen"
This is the fourth of a series of stories on famous knockouts
knockouts which have gone down into pugilistic history either on ac
connt of turning a losing battle Into a winning one or because of
the sensational manner in which they were landed.
By ED. W. SSIITH.
TrKOCKOUT punches that land on
' j v the right spot perform some fun-
" ny freaks now and then.
Occasionally a boxer will get a clout

a purely mechanical -way. This might
be termed a knockout that is not a

One of the queerest freaks of this
nature that ever came under my no
tice happened at Apollo hall In this
city one night over 1& years ago. Andy
Daly, a lightweight from Boston, was
fighting Joe Galligan, an Italian boy
of this city. They were going six
rounds with a decision at tbe end.
Daly was a remarkably clever young
fellow without much of -a punch. Gal-
"Kau waaa i so clever, out lie naa tne I
kick of a rqule In his right hand. For 1
four rounds Daly hadd all the better at I
"Beck's" Amen Corner
BY
ID TJLES which would necessitate an
athlete miking a selection of
various events instead of holding
hack an entire track and field pro
gram so that he can compete in them
all should be adopted before the next
southwestern championship, track
and field meet. The delays, on Sat
urday were due to the fact that
some athletes were entered in every
event and, exhausted after one
event, would want an intermission
to rest before the next was called.
This may be all right for the ath
lete but it will never encourage
track meets from the standpoint of
the spectator.
JL PAS0AKS are getting the right
idea of sport. Four or five
"simon pure" amateur ball games
were played Sunday and the packers
and printers are preparing to take
their sport in person instead of by
proxy next Sunday. The more the
better.
TF EI Paso beats Douglas and Las
Cruces trims Phoenix, the Mack
men will be in second place on Tues
day night. And if Tucson will be so
accommodating as to check the
Dukes, the first place in the league
standing will be in sight.
A CTI0N is wanted in everything
baseball as well as track meets
and umpire Lou Mahaffey made a
hit with the fans on Sunday by the
way in which he fairly hustled the
teams on and off the field and np to
bat. Lou don't believe in delays
and the fans are "with him" in that
respect.

can championship in the lightweight
division? The recognized weight here
has been 133 ringside, which should
really be at i oclock weighing, but the
scale was raised by Ritchie when he
defeated Wolgast for the title. All
other countries have set the weight at
1J5 at S or 3 oclock, but -in the states
the weight has been 133 for many
years. If a national boxing association

Early In the fifth Daly grew a little

Daly and It looked bad for him. He
took a count of eight, sat up, rubbed
nis ears, arose to bis leer, nnisned out i
the round In fair shape and also came '
up for the sixth as strong as could be i
expected.
Galligan made a whirlwind battle of I
it in the sixth but Daly gave him as I
good as he sent and at the end of the j
sixtn rouna tne xigm was caiiea a oraw
by the referee, a decision that flras ap
proved by the crowd.
Daly returned to his dressing room,
had a rubdown. chatted with his friends
and then donned his street clothes. He
went Into the barroom, had a couple
of glasses of beer and then announced
that he would go downtown.

time and -was with him after the battle
was over. Just before they started

theDnkes win that pennant.
AS MANY as -4s events have been

tween 1 and 5:30 p. m, yet it took
five hours to pull off 14 events on
Saturday. J. H. Stine, supervisor of

completed within three hours, de
spite the fact that there will be 12

THAT'S the matter with the El
Paso tennis players? Are they
"short sports" and afraid of being
beaten? Veterans like Cooley,
Williams, Blackshear, Ferguson,
Christy and Neff are entering th?
Border States tournament, which
opens here next week, and it-looks
strange that such promising young
players as Hardiker, Dent, McGim

entering.
JACK LEIGHTOK, who was drowned
in a swimming pool here, on
Monday, was one of the most prom

city and the announcement of his
sudden end was something of a

had seen him working out with the

"Which -fight?" Thlry asked In sur

"Why. ft was a draw and you did very

answered. "Didn't yon hear the de

"I don't remember a thing after the

reason I went in that barroom just now
was to try and hear something about
the fight without asking any questions.

I had to ask you. I feared I might

Johnson did very well in the first
two rounds. He caught Childs In the
second ronnd and knocked him down
heavily. Childs was game and weath
ered this storm, finally knocking John
son out in the fourth round, I think it
was.
Didn't Know He Had Fought. -
They took Johnson Into one of the
dressing rooms downstairs and it
looked as If he came to fast enough.
He waved his seconds away when they
tried to remove the gloves and they
let him sit in a chair for a. few minutes
expecting his head would clear pretty
quick.
Suddenly Johnson looked up at one of
his friends and motioned him oyer.
"Say, isn't it time for me to go on?"
he asked. "I'm getting chilly sitting
here and unless they call e pretty
soon I'm going to get Into my clothes

He didn't even know he had been In
