By Tad Boxes Gamely at Times; Sometimes Loses Nerve Before Fight Begins. By T. S- ANDREWS. Fred Fulton, the Minnesota slant, defeated Willie Meehan, the fat boy of the Pacific coast, in an easy man ner, but still ho Is far from being considered a dangerous contender for the heavyweight crown, even though the same critics gave Meehan a victory over Jack Dempsey a few months ago. The fact Is these same critics do not hesitate to say that the big fellow from Minnesota, is lacking in gameness to such an extent that he loses his battles before same men be fore he really starts, and there is a lot oi trutn in wnat tney say. If Fred Fulton had tbe crlt and confidence of Jack Dempsey, he lronld be the jjrea tent boxer In the world, and unbeatable while he kept his utrength, but that word if Is fn the way, Fnlton has proien at time that he la a Kreat flchtrr, bat the camenrM Is not there and that poll all am far an championships are con cerned. Fred is naturally left handed, and this crives him a exeat advantage in jabbing an opponent, but he seems to do una are to realize or taice aa vantage of what nature gave him. In his fight with Meehan at San Fran cisco tHe Minnesota giant Just jabbed Willie to pieces and gave him a worse beating than Harry Wills, the colored wonder, did some time ago, and still the boxing judges say that Wills would whip both Meehan and Fulton In the same ring. Wills is a wonder ful boxer and it was he who gave Fulton some very valuable advice while training him for his fight with Carl Morris at Canton. O. There have been many boxers who were ac- started out on their careers, but in time became just as game as other fighters. It may be that way with Fulton. Different surroundings and condi tions mar change the man and cive him more confidence in himself. He certainly has a wonderful build for a fighter, but there must be "gray mat ter" and real nerve and grit to go with it. We have seen Fulton in lights where be showed as much gameness as any man could, and again when he has shown tbe oppo site. The fact that he wants to fight Dempsey again shows that he has a feeling in his heart that he is not a dead one, yet he was surely a dead one that afternoon at Harrison. N". J., when Jack landed tbe right flush on his jaw. Probably it was the means of out tine some nerve Into Fred's system. If so.

McAuliffe declared a few years ago that his successor was the earnest man that ever drew breath, but that he lacked the first nrincinle of boxinfr, the art of self defence. After becoming champion, and de-: lea tine a few aspirants to the title in Philadelphia and other eastern cities, Lavigne went to England. He was matched with Dick Burge. light weight champion of England, and Lavigne's backer. Dr. Ordway, backed him to the extent of $6o0. Burge weighed 140 pounds, while Lavigne scaled only 133. but the French-Cana-dian knocked out the British cham pion in the Uth round. Returning to America, the Kid took on jacic uvernarat, tne great south ern scrapper, who gave him one of the hardest tussels of his life. Lavigne won, but it took him 21 rounds to turn the trick. Then followed his second battle with 'Walcott. previously re ferred to. and although victor. La vigne suffered permanent injury. The Kid also had been hitting the high places along the gay white ways of New York, London, San Francisco and other cities, and dissipation was get ting in its work when Frank Erne challenged him for the Hehtweight title. The first fight was a draw, but Erne made Lavigne extend himself to the limit to save himself from de feat. A little later he was defeated by Mysterious Billy Smith, but as the latter was a welterweight It did not affect Lavlgne's title. That honor he lost to Erne at Buffalo on July 3, 1SS9. Later the Saginaw Kid attempted to come back against George McFadden. Nemesis of champions, and was knocked out by "Elbows" In the lsth round. That ended Lavlgne's fighting career. 5 Causes Annapolis Team To Lose One Jffiore Point Than Necessary. New York. Dec. 1. A football ex pert here says the incident of an An napolis substitute running from the side line bench and tackling a member of the Great Lakes eleven, who had got loose, was altogether unfortunate for the tackler3 own side, because, as I understand, the runner was bound down the side lines, and would have made a touchdown at a far corner of the field, thereby causing difficulty in the matter of adding the extra point to be awarded for kicking the goal, ui course, me azzatr was re Rrettable, and due entirely to the fenzy of a youngster who. seeing a score against his team Immlmenu lost his head. Football enthusiasts, who have seen the same thing happen against their own teams, will know how the mid shipmen felt. But no doubt he will re ceive some greatly needed advice upon the subject of self control, which is as essential on the football field as It is aboard shin. I don't recall inst such an incident in a game as important as that at Annapolis, but things of the same general nature have happened.

TICK GUNDY'S last ring battle was with Kid Young, of the Fifth cav alry, on the occasion of the last track and field day program.

Feldman, 30S San Antonio St Adv. VJBW YORK, Dec. 6. If the world 1 1 war ends so soon as there is ev ery reason to believe It will, there seems no good reason why baseball should not come into its own again next season. Certainly there is every reason to hope that the major, and perhaps the big minor leagues as well. will be prepared to open their cham pionship campaigns on scheduled time. Of late the American league has been making some capital as to the number of players In the service. A bulletin from Ban Johnson some days ago showed that 55 percent of the American league players were actively engaged. This Is a cost commendable showing. But Not in Service. But It must be rememberes, still again, that but a small nrrc.ntner. jof the bulletined members are in olive araD or navy Dine. Most or the ath letes are engaged In shipbuilding or munitions plants or some rorm or In dustry connected with successful war making. In the event of early peace, of course, the great majority of these men might easily secure release from their present duties. It is not likely the "work or fight" rule will long sur vive the end of hostilities. There shonld be plenty of lint ela players available to assure a naecessfol major league cam paign, in any event. In the In terim It remains for the poTrera to effect a reorganisation. There Is time for this, too, at the an nual meetlrgj In December and the February schednle meetings. The coming of peace brought many Joys and by few was it hailed with more Joy than by major league base ball owners. A feeling of optimism lough." Gundy went on with Young.

"I guess this clears the baseball skies, as well as those of the general world situation." said John Heydler. acting president of the Na tional league. "Baseball, of course, will have some serious problems to meet before we take the field again, but things surely have a different hue from what tbey did when we suspend ed $Iay last Labor day. Only Month Loit. "As matters now stand, the only thing we will have lost will have been a month of play last September. Nat urally, baseball men hail the events of November 11 with great Joy, not only as patriotic citizens, proud of the achievements of their country in win ning a great victorious peace, but as sines men wnose Dusiness had oeen curtailed 100 percent by the war. I think there were few business enter prises, ir any, which were curtailed loo percent, as we were. In view of the fact that flv months will elapse before tbe cus tomary starting or tne baseball sea son. there seems to be little question that we will resume. By that time the peace treaties without question will have been signed, and no longer win tnere De essential or nonessential employment. The returning armies, and men released from other lines, will take available positions, and baseball men. naturally, will drift oacic to tne old work. There seems no question that the public will be anxiona for the return of baseball In the normal course of events.

KANSAS CITY BASEBALL STORY D0NT TAKE WELL President Ebbets. of tho Brooklyn club, is one who says there lsn t a thing in the talk of the St. Louis Car dinals beinc moved to Kansas City, and nrobably what he says will be en dorsed by seven other National league club presidents. The National league would lese prestige by leaving fet. Louis, said Mr. Ebbets, and while he complimented Kansas city as a live burg he made it clear that it Is not to his mind of major league caliber, even if the geographical location were not all against it. The burden of trans portation is enougn as it is, sam co bets, without lengthening the trips necessary. ! FEW GREAT PLAYERS DRAFTED FROM MINORS Acting president John Heydler. of the National league, points out that in the history of baseball few great players ever were drafted by the ma jors from the minors. Most of the really great developed so quickly and so positively that they were bought before drafting time came around. This statement he makes in connection with comment on the "antl draft" res olution adopted by the minors at Peoria. SPEAKER DON'T WANT TO BE INDIAN MANAGER Boston. Dec. C. Tris Speaker, the Cleveland American league outfielder, now on the inactive list of the naval aviation school here, told friends yes terdav that he had heard nothing re garding the report from New York that he would bo offered the position of manager of tbe Cleveland club, and that he did not want the Job, as he had all he could do in center field.

ANDREWS. that the war is over, it Is like- that some of the American boxers who are in France will en reavor to get on with the best men over there before returning home. Mike O'Dowd. the middleweight cham pion, and Eddie McGoorty, a con tender, bat now a bit heavy for that class, are both on the ground, an-i Pal Moore and Pete Herman, the ban tam weight stars, are supposed to be on their way over. It would he in teresting to have O'Dowd fight the champions of England and Franc-, and if he can win to have a clear title to world's champion. Mike won the American title by his knockout of Al McCoy, the alleged champion at that time, but the critics recognized M:te as the one lad best entitled to iLe crown. Eddie McGoorty went over to France and England in 1911 for tne purpose of meeting Georges Carpe Ti tle r. but It fell through. Nnw he s after a meeting with the clever Frenchman, and if the latter can t in shape in time there is little doubt that a match may be made between them. McGoorty is not the fighter ht. was in 111. but he is in better cond, tion, due to his military train ng than he has been for a long time, and that will be tn his favor should a match be consummated now. Pal Moore's one ambition. If ho gets over, is to tackle Jimmy Wilde, the fly weight sensation. There are many other good boxers among the French and British, developed during tbe war, but, like the Americans, they will not become known to the nnbL e until things are more settled and bac to normal conditions. The big box ing carnival to be held in London December II and 12. should do mu h to bring about an annual tournament of that kind between the three coun tries Great Britain, France and America. Why not begin negotiations now for a monster carnival at Mad. son Square garden. New York, tr Philadelphia, in 1919?

Wright came to thH city a year ago. just as the season on the covered playing surfaces was waning. Even so, he took a hand in Beveral of the matches privately staged among top class men at tbe Heights Casino. Brooklyn. He was very keen for the game at that time. and Is so now. Wright has never in I all of his long- and varied career at- ! tempted to wrest the indoor honors I iron, ine noiaing or others. The decision has been made to fol low the course that was found tn so successful last year and hold the men's national championship tourna ment nearly two months later In the season than had formerly been the custom.
