WIFE FEELS DEFEAT, TOO
"Michigan Wildcat" Gets Offer to
Meet Welch for 20 Rounds
on $10,000 Guarantee Other
Inducements Are Many.
BY JAMES H. CASSELL.
Forty thousand dollars richer than
when he' appeared in Portland on the
vaudevjjle stage last March, Ad Wol
gast, the Cadillac, Mich., youth who lost
the lightweight boxing title to Willie
Ritchie on Thanksgiving day, arrived
In Portland with his wife last night,
alternately vowing to quit the ring and
planning for the recovery of his lost
But Ad's chances of quitting the ring
are slight, despite the constant impor
tuning of his wife. Wolgast says that
he has. -two J7500 offers to box Joe
Mandot and Leach Cross, the former In
New Orleans and the latter In New
Tork, with a $10,000 guarantee to fight
Freddie Welsh 20 rounds in England
wahin -two months.
The offer of the lucrative mill with
Welsh came in the mail at Albany yes
terday and was immediately forwarded
to Tom Jones, Ad's manager, who is in
Chicago dickering with Jess Willard.
the gigantic heavyweight,
Ritchie's Scalp Wanted.
.."I will never put a glove on again
for a 20-round fight unless I am guar
anteed J10.000," declared the ex-champion
last night. "I don't have to fight
any more and with these J7600 offers
for 10-round bouts, I would be a fool
to step into a ring over a . 20-round
route for less than $10,00."
Theit. veering sharply under the gaze
of his wife, an anti-boxing advocate:
"I may never fight again. I have had
my crack at the game and have plenty
of money, so why not let the other fel
lows have a chance to fix-themselves
up for life?"
"There is only one man I would like
Ad to meet again and he is Ritchie,"
interrupted Mrs. Wolgast at this point.
- "I think it was too bad for Ad to
lose that championship on a foul, after
he had worked so hard to get It. I
liked him when I first met him, but
after that fight I changed my mind,"
she continued with feminine logic
Champion tn DiHfavor.
Neither Wolgast nor his wife believe
that the Mlchlgander can entice Ritchie
into a return match. When they talk
shop, which they are trying to evade
on their trip north, Ritchie, and the
chances of getting another chance at
the Caltfornlan are uppermost in their
Ad doesn't think much of the new
champion. He concedes that he may be
biased by his defeat at the hands of
the San Franciscan, but names six men
whom he would back for $5000 In a
20-round mill against his last opponent.
"Joe Mandot, Joe Rivers, Freddy
Welsh. Jack Britton. Leach Cross and
Teddy Maloney of Philadelphia can best
Ritchie today," argues the eonquerer
of Battling Nelson. "Any time anyone
of those boys goes against Ritchie 1
will bet $5000 on him."
"How about your fight with him?"
queried Jack King, who was visiting
with the Wolgasts In their rooms in
the Imperial Hotel.
Managerial Honors Sought.
"I don't believe now and never will
that I fouled him," came back quick
ly from 'Ad. "1 had him going until
that 16th round, but he gave me a good
one then, I'll confess. 1 have been hit
just as hard, however, and would have
been Just as good as ever in a few
seconds.. My bad nose which compels
me to breathe through my mouth, was
responsible for that dazing blow. My
mouth was wide open and it didn't
take much of a punch to hurt."
The "Michigan Wildcat," as he was
styled when hewing his way through
onDosition to the lightweight crown,
aspires to become a manager of fight
ers when he is through with the ring.
He expects to share with Tom Jones
In the management of Jess Willard.
the Kansas heavyweight.'
Although Ad has never seen Willard
in action he believes that the bis chap
Is due to become the champion of the
heavies. The lightweight has the ut
most respect for McCarty, but Willard
is bigger and has a better punch. Then,
too, the thoughts of that $1200 bet he
lost on Jim Flynn has much to do
with the search for the man to whip
the Nebraska boy.
Bv the way. Wolgast says he lost
JIIOO on the Flynn-McCarty fight and
didn't bet a cent on Falzer, which plays
havoc with sundry yarns of huge loss
es emanating from Los Angeles.
Operation Effect I'nderrnted.
While the ostensible purpose of the
trip of the young couple north is to
purchase Oregon stock land. It will
take a mighty good proposition to force
Ad to reduce his bank balance. He
will interview several real estate men
tmlnv. snend a day visiting with Jack
King, and then expects to leave for
his home at Cadillac lor a snort lime.
An offer to box a four-round exhibit
Ion at Tacoma was received last night.
However, as the affair is not to be
until the last of the month, there is
not much chance of the Tacomans to
see Wolgast in action.
"f am feeling far better than when
I met Ritchie and really feel more like
fighting than at any time since I was
operated on," says Ad. "1 was In poor
shape when I met Rivers, but there
was too much money involved to think
of backing out. I overrated myself
when I met Ritchie, or rather, under

Los Angeles Sees Jlorthwest
Lightweight Work Out.
Showing In Early Training Indicates
Vancouver Boy Will Be Favorite
Over Sammy Trott Young
Brother Is Admired.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Jan. 13. (Spe
cial.) Bud Anderson has been approved
by the Los Angeles fans, who saw him
work out today at Doyles. The sensa
tional Northwest lightweight, with the
wonderful punch and unbeaten record,
arrived In town yesterday and started
training In the afternoon to prepare
himself for his scrap January 25 with
Sammy Trott. He was at his training
again today. He looks about as much
like a fighter as does Joe Mandot, who
never would be picked out a crowd as
anything more than-a modest, inof
fensive ribbon clerk.
Anderson is inclined to be clever, but
his long suit is punching. In his work
today he gave a sample of the wallop
that has won so many battles for him.
His record shows two out of every
three scraps to be won oy the knock
out route, and on what he has done and
his showing yesterday and today that
punch seems to be genuine. The im
pression he made probably will make
him a favorite over Sammy Trott, de
spite the fact the Columbus boy is built
like a brick.
Brother Freddie Liked.
Robers was the first sparring part
ner to take the floor today. Two rounds
was all heT:ould stand. Kid Carter, the
middleweight, was handled for a couple
of fast rounds, and Jerry Lukens was
glad to quit after one minute of work
on account of a cracked rib. bothering
The real work came ,when Bud's
brother. Freddie, put on the mitts. This
youngster is a clever man, and is the
sterling piece as a sparring partner for
his big brother. Freddy only weighs
129, but he is fast and is no slouch
as a fighter. Bud said today that his
kid brother had a great future as a
fighter, but his girl was opposed to the
game, and the best he could do was to
fill the position of principal sparring
partner for his older brother.
Aspirant la Confident.
The brothers mixed it for four
rounds, wearing the regulation 12
ounce gloves. They really fought.
Many of the punches handed out by the
little fellow would do Justice to some
of the mushroom heavyweights seen
Bud is confident that he will beat
Trott. and says he has no fear of the
"Jinx" who so lately hovered over
Doyle's establishment. While he is in
good condition at present. his manager
says he will work every morning and
during afternoons up to the day before

Northern Pacific Is Open but
Great Northern Tied
SNOW PILED 40 FEET HIGH
At Altitudes Where Railroads Cross
Cascades Crews Could Make
Headway if Fall Would HaK.
Thaw Is Feared.
SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 13. Tho North
ern Pacific Railroad had cleared away,
at dark tonight, the wreckage at the
east portal of the Stampede tunnel,
where the North Coast Limited train
ran into a rotary plow early this morn
ing. Trains are now running, but not
.on schedule time.
The best news from the summit is
that snow Is not falling at either end
of the long tunnel.
The Great Northern, which has done
little business for a week on the moun
tain division, is again tied up fgr an
indefinite period. The Milwaukee to
day had ten miles of track more oress
covered by snow. The Milwaukee has
had great difficulty in keeping tele
eraoh communication open, and has
established a wireless station atLa
conia, near the summit.
Snow is piled 40 feet high at the
altitudes where the railroads cross the
Cascades. The railroad trackmen- say
they would soon have the rails clear if
the snow would stop for a little while.
Whdh the big thaw begins there will
be more serious enemies than snow
with which to contend.
The weather on the Western Wash
ington coast continues warm and rainy.
According to precedent, there should
be a resumption of snow in .the moun
tains tonight. Except near the coast,
there is a thick cover of snow In West
ern Washington. In Whatcom County
the snowfall has been the heaviest in
22 years. Logging operations are
being suspended In many districts be

Passengers From Starving.
ELLENSBURG, Wash., Jan. 13.
(Special.) Traffic over the Cascades
has been resumed in part after having
been blocked -for 12 hours by a wrecjt
at the Stampede tunnel.
Sunday's west-bound North Coast
limited was held at Easton all day to
day and proceeded to the Sound after
number two was out of the mountains.
The Pullman passengers on number
two were forced to rely upon the
little mountain residentsat Easton for
sustenance as the diner was froze up
and out of provisions.
Milwaukee officials here will venture
no prophesy as to wnen tneir roaa over
the mountains will be opened. A crew
of 36 linemen are at work at the sum
mit endeavoring to replace broken
telegraph wires. A number of the line
men equipped with rations for only
one "meal walked into Easton this noon
on the tracks. Despite the recent work
of the rotaries the Bnow was waist
deep and the men took turns every
hundred yards breaking the trial. The
linemen report that trees all along the
line were giving way and that the
wires were beintr broken by the falling
ones. One crew of linemen is snowed
In at Whittler. The engine is being
kept alive by shoveling snow into the
boiler as fhe locomotive is out oi water.
A stub train has been inaugurated
for the run from Cle Elum to Llnd
and through trains from the East are
being detoured from Lind to Pasco, to
Vancouver and the Sound, to Seattle
and Tacoma. The railway stations at
Upham, Martil and Stampede are buried
out of sieht. Narrow paths between
walls of snow 20 to 30 feet connect the
little buildings with the tracks.
The Milwaukee has called in the
rotarv plows - from the Rockies and
Bitter Root to fight the drifts and
slides in the Cascades. Snow is still
falling in the hills and latest reports
from Easton say that the thermomenter
Is falling rapidly.

Baldness, instead of being a matter
for ridicule, is in reality a badge of
civilization, according to the researches
of modern scientists. Miss George, of
Portland, Or., has made a special study
of the affection, and deprecates the
common tendency to regard it as a joke
and the relegation of Its treatment to
barbers and beauty shops. It Is a great
disadvantage when It occurs in a man
and a misfortune in a woman. Re
ferring to the treatment of baldness.
Miss George says the question resolves
itself Into a matter of stimulating the
tissue of the scalp and increasing the
blood supply of the follicles. Out of
a multitude of prescriptions, the bald
man may take his choice. A few lead
to desired results, provided they are
used persistently and intelligently, but
the proper method must be followed.
The hair growing from the atrophied
papillea is slow in coming forward, and
it does take months, but with the aid
of "Hair-A-Gain." a purely medicinal
and noninjurious scalp food, with 'the
method of treatment recommended by
Miss George, the desired result may be
obtained much more rapidly. Miss
George declared, in her experience, wo.
.lien persist in the treatment and get
results. Men do not and become baid.
