The con sensus of opinion is that the outfit he will head In 1916 will be too "green" to make any real showing Looking over the roster of the Ath letics reveals many unknowns.

DOTH Frank Moran and Jess Wil lard are reported as being "peev ish" and it is evident that both are trained pretty fine for the big bout in Gotham Saturday night. Willard isn't done as "fine" as some of his followers would like to see him, ac cording to all reports, but he is in good shape and tie fans look for a hard battle. DDLLETINS of tie Willard-Moraa fight will be called from The Herald balcony on Saturday evening. The bout should start about 8 odock, El Paso time. J-)0N'T forget the "wake" of the City Basketball league at the Y, M. C. A. this evening. It promiess to be a real lively affair.

Most of them are for Willard but if Moran wins you'll find that the great majority will be writing "I told you so" stuff.

That Jess Willard has a mind of his own and a desire to leave nothing un dohe that would insure his being trained to the highest possible notch was clearly demonstrated vesterday when he insisted on going through a full session of gym work as well as six fast rounds of boxing. This was Contrary to the program mapped out for him b Tom Jones, his manager. The latter had mndo arrangements fof the big rhamplon to go through some w oi k before a moving picture camera, but the Kansan told the picture men to ill tomorrow. The rhamplon weighed after his woikout and It was said the scales fgistered 2501-2 pounds. Willard himself says that he will be a trifle under 250 pounds when he gets into the ring, although he will ease UP to da) and rest tomorrow until lt Is time for him to go to the Garden.

They assert that they can eat more at the training camp than any other two baseball players. And yet the Chicago scribes with the team assert that the players don't show any results from the big eat ing. 'THIS SPEAKER, according to eastern papers of last Monday, had not then signed his contract with the Red Sox, alleging that they wanted to slice his salary from $16,000 to $8000. Tns points out that he remained loyal to his club during the baseball war and that he is at least worth as much as some of the stars who jumped and have been taken back into the fold at fat salaries. Speaker will have the fans with him in his contract trouble. It is likely that the Boston club will be reasonable and compromise with the star outfielder. gEHNT KATJFF may be the leader of the National league batters this year but he isn't showing the swat stuff in the exhibition games. So far he has gathered just three hits. That will entitle Benny to rank with the pitchers in the batting order.
