If McFarland GVCT expects to he champion ho will never get any better terms than tbis. Wolgast liris quite effectively. lived down the title that was hurled at him by ungenerous critics some yearn ago. He is no longer called the "cheese champion." He lias proven his class and his willingness to meet any nian the public wanted Him to, and lie is surely entitled to all the honors and emoluments that, are now at last un- grudingly coming his way. The world loves a good sport. Would Command Confidence It would be mighty hard to Imagine a glove contest to be staged anywhere riybt now that would attract such tre- mendous interest as a meeting of this pair. IE J, like .Tnck Curley, had 'got- ten away with in a bum wrest- ling match ami was itching for.some more soft coin, I'd pay twice for-a match between Packey and Ad- olph, !iO rounds or more, and tell Jim Flynn and Jauk Johnson if they want- ed to scrap for me they'd have to sign up for about I. believe the public wouldUiaye vastly more confi- dence in such a. contest, Route, Ad; 10 Rounds, Packey Here are two of'the greatest little men in the world. K the contest went over rovinds, my money on Adolph. If it goes to New YcrU, where qhly 30: round bouts are I-lik-a Mc- Farland. Theie Is very iiHip tn Eftln- say the argument that McFarland ranks with the top live or six meii in all ring history so far as -ring geuefal- bhip and glove cleverness goes. Wol- gast haVproven .himself to is'elson for an improYe- inent on the Nelson, type, in that, while he can asslniila.te' as much punishment, be also lias the knack of avoiding a great 'deal more, blows than Nelson could ever dodge.
