In five fights Langford has cleared Langford is a fortunate fighter. For a year he has been making money hand over fist and it is not doubted that he will have' cleared by the end of the present year. In his battles with Jim Flynn and Jim Barry on the Coast, and with Stanley Ket- chell in the east, Langford cleared a neat sum which was augmented to this week in the Kubiac set to. Langford is a thrifty negro and al ready owns much valuable real estate in Boston. Langford believes that his biggest money maker will be his fight with Tommy Burns on the Coast in September. The Boston negro has hi! eyes turned towards the heavyweigh championship and if he keeps on he may end a millionaire. Asks Clergy to Big Contest Tex Richard wants the clergy of the United States to send one or more rep Jeffries-Johnson cKettrick from Europe. In the party as Jim Stewart, who wants to fight he winner of the 'Jeffries-Johnson ght. Speaking Stewart and an- ther of nds fighters, "Young Snow- McKettrick confided the follow- ng: "I want to say a good word for tewart. He is going to be a factor mong the heavyweights from now on He weighs 250 pounds and has devel ped wonderfully in -the last six months.

While none of his fights was what you would call a big one, he has beaten some clever men, and he will surprise some of the little fellows over dger will accept this amount as Wol- gast demands that much for his enc" lone. However, Welsh is coming to the United States after his fight with Packy McFarland in London on May 30. In all likfhood Welsh will be beaten by McFarland and, if this, is the case, Packy will demand a battle with Wolgast on the Pacific coast about the time of the Jeffries-Johnson ight. In that case Freddy will have to content himself with second raters. Jeff in Smooth Dome Class Recent photographs of Jim Jeffries show that he has lost almost all the hair, on the top of his head, and is DOW in the front ranks of smooth dome celebrities. However, that champion in estimating his chances against Johnson. Mike and Jack Twin Sullivan are hairless, yet it does .aot interfere with their fighting Fitzimmons was q.uite bald at the height of his career, but ir did not af- fect the soldity of his punch. Charley White is bald, but he is the best ref- eree in the world. Therefore betters should not be influenced in the slight- est degree by the fact mat Jeff his lost the capillary substance on the summit of his cranium. S.O.E. Again Put It All Over Their Opponents 5-1 Westminster Fought a Hard Game Although the' western .wind was blowing a mighty hurricane last night the football boys decided they would fignt it out. Accordingly at 7 p.m., the S. 0. E. team lined up before the Westminster bunch ready for action. The former won the toss and after 'The Jeffries-Johnson fight to draw close 'to according to the estimates of Rickard and Gleason. Some days ago Rickard said that the arena could be tilled with' spectators west of the Rocky Mountains without Contractors will start building the Jeffries-Johnson arena on June 5, the day after racing ends at Emeryville. The arena will cost and will contain feet of lumber. It will seat people.

Richard has also suggests that clergymen attend of their ow initiative, making the journey o special trains which will carry th fight fans from various eastern cities I am afraid some of the" clergyme, would be the time th cold storage goods is getting in it deadly work. The promoters; want to make the bi battle a family affair. Jack Gleaso says it 'will be a battle of scientists and nothing will be presented to shock the sensibilities of good people. Glea- son evidently has the strength of his convictions for the promoters are go- ing to build a special gateway where baby carriages may be checked. They believe that many wives and nurse maids will rush in for a view of the light leaving their babies at the entrance. Imagine Mrs. Smith asking Mrs. Jones if that wasn't a delightful smash that Jeff gave Jack in the third. Jeffries-Johnson in Condition Reports from Ben Lomond and Seal Rock indicate that both Jeffries and Johnson will be in the finest condition of their Jives when they meet on July 4. It is natural that Johnson should take only a fraction of the time .lef- fries is using in preparation. Johnson has been fighting often and he can get into shape quickly. It doesn't take him long. Ho didn't, spend a great. deal of his time getting ready for the fight with Ketchel. but he was "there" when he stepped into the ring. And yet when he boxed with O'Brien in Philadelphia not very long before he in miserable condition; fat. short- winded, entirely lacking in endurance. He has just been through a few weeks of ''high life" that would make any- thing ever attributed to Jeffries look tame in comparison. When he went to Australia to fight Burns he weighed going into the east for patronage. At that time Rickard said he had worth of seats booked. Ad Wolgast to Meet Welsh Jimmy Coffroth, the California fight promoter, has just-telegraphed to Tom Jones, manager of Ad. Wolgast, offer- ing to hang up a purse of for a 45-round bout with Freddie Welsh, to take place the of July. It is not likely that Wblgast or his man- some pretty combination Holberton shot but Johnston saved. The West- minsters rushed and a "corner result- ed. Again, the S. O.VE. forward line forced their way through 'the West- minster defence, and Fairbrother took a drop from near the touch line that dropped inside, but unfortunately he was offside. The wind, as usual, ,was a mighty factor, influencing not only the direc tion of the ball, but also the speed of the players, not to mention the chattering spectators on the side lines.

The S. 0. E. got a lead off, Holberton tried, but failed to land it. Goal kicks became numer- ous on either side. In a mix up-in front of Westminster's goal, three men went, down, air.l Jolmston with a left sweep swung clear of danger. Some good head w'nrk was next in- dulged in. Kelly hung there all the time with the bunting act, playing as much with his head as his feet. Fairibrother turned in a hot one from the corner that collided with the goal post and the ball coming back on tue rebound Holberton pounced up- on i: and bored in number three for the Sons. The Westminsters forced a run, Simm shot one that "bulged the nets, hut was off side in the act. As a result of a Westminster foul in home territory, Joyce took a penalty kick, but added nothing jo the score. The Westminsters continued to press hard, and many corners result- ed.

Johnson has dissipated more than Jeffries ever dreamed of dissipating, but he has been training hard and lighting often between times, and that makes a difference when it comes to getting fit for the next fight. Weight Troubles Fighters The weight question is still causing a good deal of wrangling between Jem i Driscoll, the English lighter and Abe (Attell, worm's champion featherweight 'boxer. If the fight goes as scheduled [it will attract a lot of attention when rthe two boys clamber into the ring on July 2. Jem is determined to win the 11 title if possible, and Abe is too clever i not to realize that he is tip against a 'stiff proposition. Driscoll looks in even better shape than when he was here last. He ha? a more rugged appearance. Apparent- jlyhe hasn't wasted time in England He'll give Attell a great fight. Dris coll is the cleverest little man in the i world marvelous I real fighter.
