Nelson, has not sone about the country criticizing Referee Smith foi stopping the fight. He isn't accusing 'Ad of fouling. He hasn't a thing to say except "Wolgast won fairly. All I want now is a chance to get back at him. If I can do it I will win the title back again.

It has taken five years to get these men together, 'but this fact is over- sliadowed when we look at the fren- '.ied finance feature. WHAT DORS KNOCKOUT MEAN? Wolgast's victory over Nelson has aroused the inevitable turmoil which follows interference the part of a -referee to save a fighter useless punishment. A number of queries have been received asking; if Wolgast knocked out Nelson.

From this definition, it is evident that a strict interpretation of the meaning of this word does not al- ways imply temporary loss of men- tal faculties; rather, it means, in a that they will send a full team, and title in the popular mind so great fight the reduction 01 an opponent to a helpless coiidi- tion, in which he is utterly unable to protect himself, as was Nelson In the Oth round of the Wolgast match.

New York boxing enthusiasts, is in great form at the present time and his friends are predicting that he will annex the light-weight championship title before long. Tommy's victory over Owen Moran, the clever English boxer, last week cm the coast moved him up a round on the pugilistic lad- der. Moran claims that the decision against him was downright robbery and another bout will be thc out- come.

Up to the 'Raferee Another angle to the situation, er- en taking the literal iwolng of a knockout to imply uiconsciousness. is this That the referee, by interfer- ing, establishes the fact that in his judgment the beaten man would soon have been rendered unconscious and that, to save him, it was necessary to stop the fight. With this in mind, the winning fi-liter is certainly entitled to a tech- nical knockout, even though none ac- occurred.__________________. bov Hi MURRAY, Prop. WATCH FOR THE C. T.
