"I'm the Same Old Bearcat Again" «<g>4> jt><s>4> ♦ ♦♦ «*♦ ♦♦•» ♦♦* «><s><S> <>♦♦ -Ale Ad Wolgast Tells Hugh Fullerton HV HIHII S. Ft M.KRTOV. j Ad Wolgast is back; not only| bark, but he declares himself re-i arrived to remain indefinitely. The return of the Michigan Bearcat is a triumph of will pow er and hard work and-furnishes the best example of recent years of the fact that a fighter, beaten and declared down and out, can hy conscientious work undo tha effects of careless living and re cover form. Wolgast waa perhaps the ha|> piest man ln America when he leaiK'd through the ropes after beating Joe Rivers at Milwaukee. His Joy was not so much that he had defeated Rivers as it was from the feeling that he was him self again and, added to that, that he was to have another chance to recover his lost cham pionship from Willie Ritchie. For, before Wolgast fought Rivers, he paved the return road to the championship by securing an en gagement with the evasive cham pion, contingent upon his beating the Mexican. Evidently tho Ritchie camp thought Wolgast could not punch his return ticket, so agreed to fight probably at Vernon, Cal., July 4. Whether Wolgast succeeds ln regaining his laurels or not here is sonu! interesting dope. Listen to what Ad said returning from the Milwuukee battle. "Honestly I didn't know. I felt as good as ever, as strong and as fast. But you know how It ls. When a fellow loses his title he may yell he is as good as ever, but there Is something missing. "I felt that way and kept won- dering whether I was kidding my self into thinking I was good as ever, or whether the guys who thought I had sllpiied were right. I knew why I lost. 1 felt that If 1 had been at my best I never would have let go that champion ship. 1 worked hard to get ready for Rivers, and thought 1 was. Hut there ls only one way a man ran tell. That Is to get ln there and prove It toMilmself. "I wasn't nervous or afraid or anything like that, but I hand it. to you I wasn't over-confident. After I had swapped punches with him a couple of times and thrown him off once, I knew I was right. You can't Imagine how happy a fellow Is when he feels that way —that he hasn't been kidding TEX VERNON WANTS I TRY AT KID RENO There Is another match ln sight for Kid Reno, If he cares to take it. One of the men whom he chal lenged, Tex Vernon, has written that he ls perfectly willing to take on the fighting newsboy from Ishpeming, and says ke can get a match with iiim at Aber deen if he so desires, with the side bet mentioned. "Anybody in the Northwest that wants to box me will have to make 122 pounds ringside," declares Tex. "If they can make the weight, there is nothing else to hinder me from meeting them. If Kid Reno wants to box at this weight I am ready and willing to tackle htm." Nothing has been heard of Reno lately, hut at the late ad vices he has started to train Into shape to meet Joe Hill and Ver non If matches could he arranged. »**_ <y_ mm"l ~m Il^l^BßJ Tacoma ft Indianapolis rastaat end Finest Day Blaam •rs—The Quick aad Quiet Way to Seattle. • llllillT ROUND TBIPJ IIUI.I I_eav« Mvnlolpal Dock.

Believe me, he knew it almost as soon as I did. "I have proved to myself how good 1 am —and I'm happier over that than I will be over anything until I prove it to this Ritchie person. He may take a lot of convincing, but the old Bearcat has the same old arguments that have convinced a lot of them, and they are good as ever." That fight at Vernon ought to he intresting even to those who do not believe in boxing, proof of the power of confidence. Wool gast thinks he can best Ritchie— which is a bigger thing than mere physical condition. Tex says he Is busy arranging a bout at Aberdeen for St. Pat rick's day which promises to be a corker. The little featherweight ls learning to run a typewriter in his spare moments, and naively admits that he is better at punch ing an opponent than the keys.

Perrlne was a former member of the Washington Amer icans, but loved the bright lights too well. If Dug can keep him on the aqua tumbril he ls likely to play good ball. GIROT HAS MAILED IN CONTRACT Another Tiger was added to the fold yesterday when the sign ed contract of Jerry Glrot came to President Joe McGinnlty. Giant ls the big, lanky southpaw who proved wonderfully effective at times last year, and at other times was as easy to solve as a Sunday school puzzle. So far Third Baseman Me.Mul lin Is the only holdout In the fe line ranks.

TROPHY IS LOST BY TACOMA By tl»e scant margin of eight birds, Tacoma trapshooters lost the Mahncke trophy for the sec ond time to the Seattle riflemen, losing the shoot yesterday on the Seattle range. A return match will be held on the range of the Tacoma Rod and Qun club at Mnn it .ni park February 22. SEATTLE FIRST I BASEMAN GOES TO THE FEDS First Baseman Jackson of Se attle has signed a contract to play with the Federals, Chicago being the team he is going to. He is the first Northwestern leaguer to go to the new circuit.

JOHNNIE O'LEARY SEATTLE, Feb. 2. —Johnny O'Leary has returned home again after cleaning up the California featherweight division. Old-tim ers who saw the lean little Irlsh- man In contests here a year ago marvelled at the big chest and muscular arms Johnny has de veloped during his sojourn. "Hes' a coming world's cham pion," proudly exclaimed several hundred fans who watched O'Leary go through 10 rounds of fast milling against several local boxerß. These same boys were on par wltl\ O'Leary last winter. From a four-round preliminary fighter, never drawing more than $15 or $20 a scrap, O'Leary has advanced to a main .event fighter in California, and has ascended so rapidly he is now promised an early- date with Featherweight Champion Johnny Kilbane. The Kilbane bout probably will be O'Leary's last as a featherweight. He ls rapidly approaching the lightweight mark. BOWLERS ENGAGE IN ENDURANCE CONTEST Prank Renuett of Tacoma won a five-hour endurance bowling contest yesterday at the Corby and Dinnnock alleys in the Ta coma building, iiiiikiiiu as a total score of 2,000 plus.
