not. It is notlc&d that the 1 promoters

whether they; have found one.
,i Will Hate Americans. . .
Hugh fclntosh, the Australian pro
moter) makes It his boast that he will
have a whole herd of American heavies
Jn Sydney before Christmas. Possibly
he will. The heavyweight situation at
present resembles a weed patch and If
Mac has secured the men he speaks of,
It may give those tender plants known
as '"whit hopes, - a chance to grow.
It is noticed, however, that Mcintosh
is not bragging about American light
weights he will Introduce to fight lovers
of Australia. No sir. The lightweights
are having It made worth their while to
stay at home and the heavies are being
permitted to wander where they listetn,
The moral - stands out in this like a
wooden peg Jn a cheap shoe.
t iv.wrht vivrp win furnish the
best of the pugilistic entertainment In
this country for quite a while. And the
better the lightweight, the oftener he
will entertain.
f . Brown Zs Bnsy.
- Knockout Brown's manager. Dan Mor
gan, In declining a Los Angeles offer to
match his man against Freddie Welch,
said that Brown had a dosen contests
to look forward to In ths next two
months, and that he, would box Welch
later. In the slaniF of yesteryears,
that's going some. The question, is, how
long will a youngster like K. O. B. last.
If he is sent alonp at such a breakneck
clipT He is a youth so new to the game
that his name does not appear in the
1910 records, yet we hear of him being
committed to a dcxen matches in the
next two months.
It almost looks ns if Morgan, In addi
tion to claiming the lightweight cham
pionship for Brown, might claim the
record for the irreatest number of
matches in the shortest space of time.
Burely It must be a record.
How Will He Train.
Will Knockout train separately for
each of those bouts, or will he condi
tion himself to begin with and then
figure that the first fight will consti
tute training for the second and so on
until ho lias finished the campaign?
Whichever way he fixes, it almost looks
as though he will have to sleep In
fighting costume and with boxing gloves
tied to his wrists.
But perhaps, after all. Manager Mor-
rati la drawing thj long bow. PoasU
bly he , was af ratd of of fending Welsh,
if ha told Freddie, straight out that
Brown wantedtnothing to do with Mm.
and preferred pleading a 'multiplicity, of
engagements. ,- ' . $.
Joking aside, it was evident that trie
new order af fhinrs In 'tha east Is going
hard on rlalna- vounsr lightweights. If
ths K. O, B. date book Is tooe tatten,
as a fair sample, the- New York fight
fans will be watching ' bouts fbetween
Jaded boxers before the season la over.
r Helson gonad o. t
Bat-Nelson used to say that ns would
havsi preferred to box every fwo weeks,
With that time,v ths .Dane would vhava
to have a life jtenure of the wonderful
endurance with which nature endowed
hjm. Now ha knows that even fighting
flesh has Us limitations. . ,
If K, O. Brown keeps crowding a dozen
fights into a space .of two months, ha
will pot last anything near as long as
Nelson did. Wher Brown' can com
mand such a number of. engagements,
what is in store for champion Ad Wol
gast? He is the most sought - after
young man. at present in the pugllistio
lights and. In addition to being -a mark
for the boys In hlsjown class, the pro
moters In every section are reaching
out for him. " t- '
Ad might make a one night stand of
his business if he felt so Inclined, but
up to ths present he has not evinced
a hunger for matches as hss his rival.

Chance Is Disciplinarian.
Frank Chance Is perhaps the greatest
disciplinarian in the game. A player
for the Cubs must play ball and play
all the time for all he is worth. Thl
Is the reason perhaps for the splendid
showing the Cubs always make. . There
is no other manager tn the game who
would put two of his sjar players on

son "Red's" team was having one of
their few "off days" In the season.
"Red" was guarding ' the right garden
and was anxious to see how many er
rors his team was maklgig. Following
his old custom of puttltg a rock in a
pile for. each error, Rupert had quite
collection in the eighth Inning, when

Austin) cattie up with three on "banes,
and slargmed a drive In his direction.
J poor shape despite the work put. on thenT

school and the University of Oregon.
He was tipped off to Cohn by Jack
Tauscher, the Portland lad now with Ta
coma. Tauscher received nothing from
Cohn for getting him this find notwith
standing that he has proved a sensa
tion in the Northwest league.
