No more will he figure to clip a

Experts say Craig could win
the hundred and double hundred
meters for Uncle Sam in 191 C and
i.i'l three other events to his
string, if he cared to. He was a

Rivers Would Claim Title
Wolgast Refuses to Sign
LOS ANGELES, Cal., July 15.
—The controversy between Ad
Wolgast and Joe Rivers reached
the biling point when Joe Levy,
manager for RiveTS, today issued
a statement that unless the cham
pion within 48 hours declares
himself regarding a return match
he will claim the title for his
Mexican protege. Levy demands
an end to quibbling and an im
mediate signing of articles and
offers to bet $3,000 at the prevail
ing odds.
Levy's statement, far dlfferenr.
from the silent policy he adopt

putting himself forward. At Mich

insist that he was there for study,

having the scholarly Phi Beta
Kappa honor thrust upon him.
Incidentally, there is a sweet
heart in the deal, they say, and

a boy of 23 and become a man or
