Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD MONDAY, JULY 6, Go Between Welsh and Ritchie According to Adolphus Will End in a Draw chie's a Poor excuse championship bu Los Angeles, July Rit- !o as a lightweight _________r __ as a business man he sure'is a'bear. Just imagine a guy as poor a fighter as him going ahead aid making a lot of money and bang- ing on to a title when hall the light- weights untlie country can lick him." Thus Ad. Wolgast, his shirt iroat castina forth a uazaling glare lite the front ot a Main street "movie" pal- ace, and .with a Terj- blase and bored air delivered his opinion of the ''cfassnp" -who cad tleprised him of his title "Say, do ypu want to know -the lightweights who can .beat this Rit- remarked the Dutchman. "Weil, first there's me and'then Jimmy Duf- fy, Charley White, Joe Hirers, Jack Britton, Freddy Welsh and I think Johnny Dvmdee can lick 'im." Somebody who was sticking around ventured a remark, "How do you ac- count lor the good showings Ritchie has made since he won the title "Who did he erer make, a good showing snapped .Adolph. "Whi, 'Rivers had him licked. I don't tnon" what was the matter, with that crazy He had him beat to death and then just naturally quit. I guess he must have just fought him- String of First-CIass Nags an Here and Ready for Action Full racing program is slated fo the opening day ot the exhibition. The line-up as handed to the II r alii this morning by one of the direc- ;ors is a good one, as will be seen There is only one harness event to- morrow, the" pace or trot The entries do not close until to- night, hut all the events will he wcl! filled. There is a purse of for ;his rare, and the other events are is follows Quarter-mile pony race, 2 in 3, fth dash, and the mile h the evening there will ie a splendid exhibition of jumping in the grandstand. There is a string of jumpers already hero, many of the poaies were out .usting around the track this morn- horses already stabled include Patch's- Lady Goo Goo, Head Jarnoch, Fritz ililler, Glencoe; R. Smmert's Ethel Samson, Jennv New- man, Lady McMally, and Hokot J self, out." 'And say, while I'm on this Rit- chie thing, doa't you .ever let any- body tell you that Ritchie can't make pounds and be strong. That boy makes 133 and is as strong as he is at 135. He was way under weight for me in my Milwaukee fight." chipped in one of the on- lookers, "there's one thing you've got to hand it jp for, he's a clean fighter, ain't he." "Sure, he's a clean rer plied the little Dutchman with a grin. "He has to all he knows'' me, he's :some business man, went on the' ex-cfiamp a grin of genuine admiration. "Ha got a.ldt of money for fighting Charlev Yvhite in Milwaukee the oth- er night, but he got the worst lac- ing I ever saw handed to anybody in my life. White nearly knocked him out a dozen times." Then the talk switched to the com- ing Ritchie-Welsh battle. Ad was shown a cable from London stating that the two men had been matched for a second battle in November. "There you triumphantly hel- just an advertis- for "this fight. Those two guys are the two wisest fighters the world. "What Ritchie is doing is just sell- -ing his title, that's all. He hasn't a 100 to 1 dhance against that Welsh- man. I don't think they'will meet in any decision fight, at all, anyway. They'll have some sort of an "agree- ment to call the bout a draw.

Eight o! these horses are from the Recreation Stables of Calgary. The names of the horses are Erin Go Bragh, Shannon Belle, Irish Lad, Lash, Chance, The Moose, fay H'Hd Dollar Jira. The ninth horse is the celebrated Faddy, owned hy P. C. Lowes, oi Calgary. Paddy ap- peared here, before, but alone, anil his real class was not tested. He is re- togniied as the most sensational jumper in Canada and he. takes the barrier, :a thrill is always felt by the spectators. The galaxy of swell horse flesh from the Recreation Stables will give the people an excellent and thrilling entertainment of high jumping, too. Erin Cfo Bragh has been established ay winning in 'the polo "and jumping class at Calgary Shannon Belle cap- RITCHIE AND WELSH AGREED TO RETURN BATTLE Tiat Willie Ritchie, lightweight champion of America, is evidently tak- ing the precaution to protect himself when he meets Freddie Welsh, in London, on July 7. Willie knows very Veil that if' Welsh were to gain a twenty-round decision over him, his power as a drawing card would be shattered to a great ertent. He also knows that if Mr. Welsh wins the title he will keep Ritchie chasing after him for a contest, the same as TUiehU; -ias had Pre-ddieiollowinghim for the past year. Therefore; Willie Insisted upon articles being signed and forfeits post- ed for a return match in England be- tween 4 and 11 .Tho chances are that it Ritchie wins this contest'he will not'be so anxious to go ahead with a second meeting; hut should he lose, it will then-be-up to him to go through with it, and have an opportunity to win back his laurels. ..Willie has no manager at the pre- sent from the way he has heen handling things, he has a pretty good-sized head on his shoulders Just the same. G. S. Lyon, for the eighth time, is Canadian amateur .golf champion; defeating Bruce Evans, ot Boston, in the final at Ottawa (Saturday) eight up-and seven to play.
