WOLGAST FAVORS A LONG BATTLE WOLGAST MIGHT BEAT Mc-FAR- LAND IN 45 ROUNDS BUT NOT IN TEN The only chance that Ad Wolgast might have to whip Packey ..McFarland decisively would be in a fight of 45 rounds, or to a finish, for he might prove stronger in physique than thf stockyard boxei under a strict B.ut Iii 20 enforcement the rules it Is believed .McFarland would ehow as much superiority as in ten jo ml 'If I c'su't beat a man in 20 or 25 101 u r tb 11 land I can t bear him at all. But I'll say that 25 rounds i-s a long enough route for nte to out- point any man in the world, and please remember I can do 133 at 3 and be as strong and as fast as ever.

The other appears to be in the throes'of the winning streak that always overtakes-him about this time of-the year To maton the southpaws are Matty and Ames. Matty may not be as won- derful a pitcher as he used to be; he hasn't won as large a percentage of his games as was expected, hut it will be' noticed that he has annexed sev- enteen out of and really ranks fourth in the list. Alexander is the only pitcher in the league who has won more games. 'Every one of this quartette is in bet ter physical condition than at any tliiie alnce the beglnnig of the sea- son.
