Broken Spot.
Los Angeles, CaL", July 2. With his
left arm swollen far beyond Its natural
size. Ad Wolgast is submitting; today
to the ministrations of a corps of mas
seurs. Wolgast Injured the arm Sunday
during a workout with one of his spar
ring partners. It Was painfully bruised
ovor the spot where the arm was broken
on Jack Redmond's skull two years, ago.
Doctors who are caring for the cham
pion stated that the soreness will be
entirely gone before Thursday..
Aside from this Injury, Wolgast claims
to be In excellent shape, although his
appearance would belle his assertion.
His weight Is but a trifle over-128
pcenaranore Toeks sisnder sad" draws.
Asked what had become of the bulging
shoulder muscles and Weeps of the days
before the operation, Wolgast retorted:
"Heavy muscles don't make a darn
bit of difference.- I've got my natural
weight, haven't IT And I've told you
that i never felt better, haven't If And
did I ever lie about my condition T Just
tell them all to forget about all this
stiff f that Ad Isn't his old self. I'll
make that Mexican hop through the
ropes before he's been In the ring five
rounds." - -

Rivers, at his Venice camo. Is loaf
ing away the last! three days of his prep
dom. Within a quarter of a pound of
specified weight, the challenger will do
no mors Vexing and will resort to hand
ball merely to rid him of the extra
ounces before weighing In time.
Joe Is as confident of success Thurs
day as though he were the-champion
Instead of Wolgast. He talks little
about the mill, but the few words he
aays plainly Indicate his peaceful frame
of mind.

row afternoon and evening, and will be
hustled oft to bed shortly before mid
night. . Rivers has announced that he

"white hope" has been offered two bat
ties before the four round clubs In San
Francisco for August, with anyone f

Frank Schuler, matchmaker for a cou
ple of clubs. ,
Schuler offers O'Donnell a fight with
Charley Miller, Al Kaufman, Charley
Horr or Jim Cameron. Tracey safs
that O'Donnell will not meet a colored
boxer, and that eliminates Cameron.
August 9 la set for the date ot the
first proposed .match, and August 23 for
the second. The same amount of money
was offered, win, lose or draw for tha
first battle, but Tracey, thinks O'Donnell
should draw more If he wins' the first
Jockey Bennett Is anxious to meet
Abe Atteli here during the Elks conven

he can make It pretty warm for Able

befora a locaL. audience for a couple of
years, but he was popular when he
boxeOere before.
Abe Attell says he doesn't want to
box Ritchie here for the reason that he
can get a bigger bet in 8an Francisco
for meeting the lightweight. Attell will
be In town next week for the Elks' re
union. -
Jack Lessard, who fought here a cou
ple of years ago, is out with a chal

made It a . point to meet every train
from the east In order to (rest his

.All of 1 Johnson's training partners
were In high good humor and with no
more batterings from th big brack In

Speculation to 1iow far tha battle
will go and what are the chances of tho
challenger has begun to grow warmer,
The consensus of opinion Is that If
Johnson falls. to stow the fireman away
within 10 rounds h will be beaten. ,
Members of the Flynn camp to a man
agree that Flynn will be badly worsted
durlnar the 'first "seven "or ten "rounds,
but that If Johnson doesn't finish the
Job within that tims Flynn will go to
the front and wear the black down and
beat him. ,v . .

The confidence In both camps shows
no diminishing and If It were left-to
