The coming of-Sept.- iinbcr is sure to be a sad ono for .ome folks of tlie sporting per.r.ia- ion. hook at tho schedule: Carl Morris vs. Jim Flynn. Frank Gotch vs. George Macken- cbmidt.

In one resiling world's champion Klynu apparently has his limitations, lie can never hope to be a champion while Sara Langford and Jack Johnson are autivgjy engaged in fisticuffs, but he is a very formidable trial horse just the same. He is right willing worker possessed of more speed and strength than accuracy, and he takes kindly to close milling. He is a heart-breaking for any inexperienced fighter to tackle, and if Morris should defeat him decisively, there may arise a de- mand for a Johnson-Morris match. "Another Chance" If things go awry, Morris may as well turn his thoughts to some pursuit other than pugilism.

In ie other a "white hope" is risking s all, which by the way, is not very itch. mean Carl Morris is fitfully hopeful that he will prove mself fully entitled to a crack at ick Johnson, the undisputed cham- pion of tho world. Carl Morris Morris is the most petted and most prominent of all the novices who have been mentioned as possible opponents for Johnson. The majority of the oth- ers have either disappeared entirely or "iave had their dreams shattered by defeat. Morris has a millionaire manage at least so they this mana- ger with seeming seriousness and sin- cerity voices his belief that Morrii can defeat Johnson. It goes without saying that Morris feels the same way about it. Morris .Is to go against Jim Flynn somewhere in New York on Labor Day (Sept. 4) and by that event he will stand or fall. If he loses fo Flynn be be a joke for Flynn is a pro- nounced second rater, with but one fairly bright spot on his side, namely his victory over Al Kaufman. If Morris should do away with Flynn the future will be luminous with pro- mise for'the Oklahoma''heavyweight. If he is found wanting in his first test it would be considered a waste of time to try again. The llackenschmidt Gotch world's championship wrestling match, which is to bo deicded in Chicago in Septem- ber 4th, is of vast importance. About Wreitlers Even though Gotch won from the "Russian Lion" a co.iiple of years ago and has enjoyed ever since the pres tige tllat attaches to the premiership it has always; been felt that the cir- cumstance attending the first strug- gle call for another. Hackensuhmldt has moved heaven and earth to secure a return meeting and has publicly challenged Gotch with being afraid to wrestle again. In everything'Hackerschmidt has done he has displayed.a spirit of defiance arid supreme confidence, and the public has watched the slow progress of the matchmaking with much of the interest that was manifested while Jeffries was still undecided abo.ut tackling Jack Johnson.
