STRONG TEAM Will McFARLAND LOSES CHANCE By his refusal to make 133 pounds for a bout with Ad Wolgast Packey McFarland has virtually read himself- It for out of the lightweight division. has generally understood some '.time past that the Chicago scrap- per could not reach 133 pounds with- out weakening himself. He insisted that he was a lightweight and could make the poundage if necessary, but his action in calling off the match with Wolgast makes it certain now that he can- not longer be considered a lightweight; according to the Amer- ican scale of weights. Hereafter Packey will have to battle in his true class1 the welter brlgade. Be Put in the Tifeld-Against. thc; Athletics Chicago, 111, Oct.'

OUTSTRIP NATIONAL CRACKS Next Year's Crop Will Even Up Stand- Comparison Between old and New League Otherwise (By Christie Mathewson) I firmly believe that, as whole American, league pitchers ares better and may give up active work in the field. It can not be sidestepped. There's a dearth of catching material Jin the National league. Inside ball rests to -a great extent with the battery men.
