-Willie Ritchie. American lightweight

' On tip of all that, he decrares that
ha Is far from being through with the
fing. Only this week he had an offer
from a New York promoter who didn't
care to have his name mentioned, mak
ing a good proposition for a contest In
Havana, Cuba, tnlmt either Freddie
Welsh. Charlie White or Joe Shugrue.
Ulti hie has responded that he will be
clad to ttke on the match, providing
the weight terms and financial Induce

awaiting developments. His plan Is to
set back Into the ring; about the first

The Oibbons-Clabby fight in Mil
waukee. January 21. Is attracting a lot
ct attention. While the Westerners
rave never seen Gibbons in the ring,
flabby has boxed hereabouts sufficient.
1- to become a local favorite. Gibbons,
doubtless Imbued by a desire for pub
licity. Issued a statement the other day
in which he said that he would not
onlv win decisively from Clabby. but
would knock him out Inside of eight
Kaoekeat Possibility Boasted.
Such a statement Is piffle and isn't
entitled to serious consideration. The
writer saw Eddie MoOoorty win handily
from Gibbons In a New York ring a
couple of years ago and the St. Paul
boy must have improved considerably
if he a ants to win from Clabby. It
must be borne in mind that Clabby has
ome to the front in the last year and
is a good deal of a wizard with his
mitts. Take two such clever chaps as
the mlddlewcights In question and It
would be hard for either to score a
. Indeed, if there is to be talk of a
decisive victory, you can tab Clabby as
the chap who will be in front. At
least it would be quite a disappoint
ment in this Western country if he
can't make good.
In the event of winning, Clabby Is
going to be in the position of a lot of
champions In that he will find It hard
to secure formidable opponents. Eddie
McGoorty will make one contender;
that Is. If Eddie can get away with
Fighting Milly Murray In their ten
round match which Is to take place in

rjr doesn't appear to be a champion,
he may make McGoorty step some in
their encounter and if he does there
might be an opportunity to match Billy

elsoa Scads Holiday Tholes.
Battling Nelson's holiday greeting
consists of a handsome photograph of
the former lightweight champion, all
lecked out In the latest evening dress.
The photo is. of course, autographed
bv "Battling Nelson, of Hegewisch.
Illinois." and there Is not a word about
the pugilistic game.
The Durable Dane has omitted -nothing
in his attire and he looks the young
man of fashion, all the more so since
his cauliflower -cars have most care
fully been tuned down to fit the oc-t-asion.
The latest is word from Nelson that
he has ome more quit the boxing game
11 n J this time for keeps. He explains
that he took on that exhibition con
lit against Andy Bezenah in Cincin
nati just as a matter of sentiment, it
seems that on one occasion he was
barred out of "Cincy" and that he
wanted to conclude his career there.
The Kane explains that he was far
from being in shape which was the oc
casion for lils sorry showing.
In the future, according to his plans,

audrille stage. It is rather diffi
cult, out here In the West, to Imagine
Rattling Nelson as a popular hero on
the slutre. but perhaps styles have
Iel Howard Mat Popular.
It has leaked out that Del Howard
was discarded by Henry Berry as man
saer of the Seals, because the San
JVan'Mf-o mogul wants a fighting man
.t the helm this year of 1S15. There
Is no qnetion but that Howard knows
bMsehe.ll. Nevertheless he has been
hardly aggressive enough to satisfy
the fans. Further, there was a bitter
disappointment because he would not
net Into thel ineun often this last
Fall when the San Franciscans looked
ms if they had a chance to cop the pen
nant. That turned the crowd against Del
.auid with "thumbs down" it was almost
a foregone conclusion that a change
would be made. Berry figures that a
manager more after the type of Happy
llngan would go well and that is the
ai-heme that he's going to try.
No one not even Howard himself
knows what the ex-manager will do
this coming season. Del tins a lot of
agricultural Interests in California, but
he wants to continue in baseball for
several years to come. Of course, he
doesn't propose to play much baseball,
but figures on getting hold of a club
to maiiaae. There seem to be no Va
cancies in the Coast League and if he
does anything at all. it will be a case
of troing East for his venture.
William Greer Harrison, for many
years president of the Olympic Club,
hut more recently living at Carmel, did

beach. Together with William F. Hum
fhrev. the president of the club at the
present time, the veteran and dean of
the Oregon Agricultural College,
walked the entire distance from the
Post-street headquarters to the beach.
It was quite like old times to see
William Greer Harrison in the front
ranks and quite evidently, he enjoyed
the affair as much as the spectators.
For those who liked that sort of thing,
there was a dip in the surf and then
a breakfast, in which all Joined.
That and the cross-city run, partici

features of the athletic programme for
the first day of 1915. Quite different

always featured. ' Indeed, it has been

It Holds Contract for Services of

CINCINNATI, Jan. 2. A temporary

as Lee Magee. from managing any
club or from playing with any club
other than the St. Louis Nationals, was
asked for in a suit filed today by the
American Baseball and Athletic Ex

United States District Court here asks
that the injunction later be maoe
It is alleged that Magee signed a
contract March 4. 1914, with the St.
Louis National League Club for the
seasons of 1914 and 1915; that, he re
ceived 14500 straight salary. J1500 ad
ditional for signing the contracts and
$1200 bonus for being a member of the
team finishing in third position in the
championship race. It further avers
that November 11. 1914, Magee signed
a contract with the Brooklyn Federal
League club, thereby repudiating his
contract with the St. Louis Nationals.
Manager Miller Huggins, of the tot.
Louis Nationals said:
- "We have a contract for 1915 with
Magee, made out on what is known as
the new 1914 blank. We are simply
trying to protect our interests. We
do not anticipate any diffipulty in
proving our rights in the matter." .
Chairman August Herrmann, of the
National Baseball Commission, said:
"This is only another instance that
demonstrates that organised baseball
will fight to protect itself in the mat

Following an annual custom, a dele

each day, commencing last Monday.
The feats of the expedition were per
formed by "Anne DUlinger, who, with

woman who ever rearhed the Spur in
the Winter time and Miss Mills and
Miss Schneider have the. honor of be

return to the Lodge the same day.
In going still further to Cooper's
Spur, Miss rillinger and Mr. Prouty
used their skis as far as possible and
completed the trip on foot. They were
forced to weather an 80-mile gal that
came up unexpectedly.
The ascent made Monday by the en

hours and the descent, made the same
day, less than an hour. The expedition
Tuesday encountered a blizzard. The

to sniff and eat his way through life

lost out.
