It may be some time, however, before a match is arranged, as Wolgast Is showing an inclination to attempt to dictate silly terms. His latest demand is a guarantee of $12,500 for a meeting with Moran in May, and he wants to select his own referee. Unless Ad wakes up and comes to his senses he will be "in bad" with the sporting world, and his championship honors will get him little or nothing. Union League Is a sure Go Four franchises have already been granted in the new Union association being organized in Montana, Idaho and Utah by W. H.

MORAN AND WOLGAST ENGAGE IN WORDY CONTEST (By United Press Leased Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28.— Owen Moran, the only pugilist who ever knocked out Battling Nelson, scheduled to leave for New York today, already has stirred up a controversy that will keep the fis tic world busy for many a day. Within 10 hours after the Battler had bumped the mat often enough to be counted out, Moran was en gaged in a wordy combat with Ad Wolgast, and today both fighters are displaying considerable class The Fanning Bee Casual Comment on Sport Things That Have Hap pened, Are Happening or Might Happen. BY "MAO." Now that it is all over, how easy it is to look back upon the Nelson- Moran battle of last Saturday and say, "I told you so." Nelson never had a lookin at any stage of the game, and in only three rounds did he manage to break anywhere even with the husky young Englishman. Moran, on the other hand, walloped the one time Durable Dane all over the ring, knocking him down five times in that last awful round when the Battler refused to as knowledge defeat and staggered to his feet even after he had been counted out, begging the referee to let him continue the fight. There is no longer any doubt about it, the Dane is all in. His once wonderful physique will no longer stand the strain of the ter rible beating which he has taken in the past, and when the punish ment comes now the Battler's con stitution is not strong enough to withstand it. All that is left of the old Durable Dane is the in domnitable will, and that seems to be as firm as ever. Four times in the last round did the Battler go down from the jolt of punches which would have kept any ordin ary fighter down, and four times he pulled his tired body to its feet again by the sheer force of his will, only to again fall before the rain of murderous rights and lefts which Moran rained upon him. And yet, in spite of the decisive beating given him yesterday, in spite of the fact that for the first time in his life he bad tasted the bitterness of the knbckout blow, Sample DRESS SHIRTS Regular $3.50 dress shirts go at $1.25 Regular $2.50 dress shirts go at $1.00 Regular $2.00 dress shirts go at 85s> Regular $1.50 dress shirts go at 65«> Regular $1.00 dress shirts go at ...35*+ WORK SHIRTS 'Men's regular 75c heavy shirts go at.....26#* Boys' regular $1.1)0 wool shirts go at 2ty • Regular $3.00 men's corduroy shirts, red, tan aud blue, go at $ 1.50 Men's heavy plain blue, brown and cheeked, striped; Regularly 85c. Go at in slinging heavy language. Moran is certain that Wolgast will have to consent to a fight, snd he is equally certain that the light weight will not impose the condi tions he has already suggested, and which Moran calls preposter ous. Wolgast said he wanted to name the referee. Moran and his managers declare such a demand is outrageous and unheard of. The little English fighter will spread the Wolgast fight talk around the eastern circuit of the vaudeville stage. , the first thoughts of the Indomnit | able one after recovering from the , effects of the knockout, "were of \ getting another match. The Battler says he wants a go with Ad Wol- I past, but if he cannot get on with I the champion he will be satisfied | with another try at Moran. Vain hope, for it would be difficult to find a promoter who would again match the Dane with any ot the j topnotchers after his showing of l Saturday, and if they should be so foolish, it would only mean that : Nelson would be even more de cisively beaten than ever. The Dane is all in. His fighting days are ended. He is a has-been, one of the scrap heap, a part of the discard. Never again will he wear the halo which attaches to him who bears that magic title, champion. He has been a wonder ful fighter in his day. None other ever took so many beatings and still came out of the fight victor. None other ever fought so willing ly and so earnestly as he. None other, so far as can be discovered, ever fought a fairer and squarer fight than the Durable Little Dane. But his day is done. It is the business life and the quiet exist ence for him from now on. He is defeated. Decisively, unmistakably, conclusively defeated, and his glory is all stripped from him. But In i his defeat he carries with him the sympathy of every loyal fol lower of the padded mit game. Ke * is perhaps more popular in defeat i than In victory. Let him be satis : fled with this and not waste hla • time in foolish- endeavors to get , a chance for another beating. 40c
