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.

himself and Is THERE. I WAS
THE OLD BEARCAT^ AGAIN,
and from that on I waded Into
that yaller boy. 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.

NIG PERRINE IS
TO PLAY SECOND
FOR DUGDALE
Seattle has 6igned a second
sacker to fill the shoes of George
Mil, who bears the name of Nig
Perrine. 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. This is a pleasant
little habit Mac indulges in the
first of every season, and by the
time the'Tneadow larks are sing
ing he will probably kick through.
They say he has a chance of
catching on with the Feds—like
the chance of the tallow dog pur
suing the asbestos kitten through
a place whose name ls being with

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.
Sets Record
A new record was made on the
Lakewood Golf club course yes
terday when James Barnes, the
Tacoma professional, went around
the course of nine holes ln 35
strokes.
Seek Revenge
The major league clubs are
likely to make It til for tat and
raid the Federal league clubs If
possible, according to a hint re
cently thrown out.
Win Matches
The Stadium High grapplers
defeated the wrestlers from the
Cushman Indian school Saturday
night, winning 11 out of 15
matches.
Lose Game
The Whltworth basketball five
met defeat Saturday at the hands
of the St. Martin's team, tn a
game played at Lacey. The score
was 37 to 21.

MR. 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.
