a young gentleman
named Ernest Cutler

Ernlo Is a very ca

to tho wise persons

about five rounds,
and after that thoy

Mr. Price has
been with us for sev
jt, w. MAXWELL
!-years, but this Is the first time he has
Jin able to break Into the big league. Many
Holrlng hams fell before his mighty wal
lob in tho past, but the new crop refused
,- to fec6gnlze him socially and absolutely
a declined to meet hlm.undqr any conditions
A a last resort, overtures were made to

v J wion himself to spoil Ernie's quarrelsome

f ' to-do with the fuss from our viewpoint.
All we know It that tho students of swat

Coffey twice, boxed a hard 20-round draw
with Jack Johnson before the Bmoko took

jiave every reason to bollevo that E Cut-
lr will rock tho party of tho second part
to eleep early In the evening and they
'' will be out In full force to take a look at
" the rocking.
Introducing Jack Dillon
J Ernle'wlll not appear under his real name
i mxt Thursday. If he did, there probably
wouldn't bo enough cash customers In the
s'rla'ce to finance a trip to Coney Island
For that reason, Mr. Price will bo Intro-
juccd as Jack Dillon, tho Indianapolis Bear
'teat, the Giant Killer, and several other
highly suggestive and terrifying cognomens
' Xi Jack Dillon he strikes terror Into the
het.rU of his opponents, but as Ernie Cutler
he couldn't get a rlso out of a gent winding
f hliwrlst watch.
At any rate, Jack has been working hard
for this bout, and will step into the ring In
the very best of shape. For weeks ho has
appeared In dally workouts at tho old Fed
eral League Ball Park, and entertained
thousands of sightseers who wandered by
mistake into the city of Brooklyn. He has
oeen walloping a corps of sparring partner
ail oer the lot, much to the delight of his
audiences, nnd hns It all doped out how he
can put across the samo stuff on Moran.
Joe Cox, who Is said to have made Jess Wll
,n quit cold once upon a time, Is ono of
the human punching bags and Is assisted
by Boveral other good battlers.
Moran Working Hard
In the mcnntlmo Moran Is working out up
In tho country, and Willie Lewis reports
that he Is better than ever before. Frank
Is very strong for rural life, and Is having a
f(ne time away from the glare of the whlto
When Moran boxed Wlllar"d he played tho
part of tho pigmy, and hnd the sympathy of
tho high-priced audience. In this battle,
however, conditions will bo reversed Frnnk

than Dillon, hns nn advantage of hVj Inches
In reach and will play (ho part of the Giant.
Dillon muBt be the killer.
Joss Has Hnrd Luck
Judging from recent developments, there
will be no Wlllard-Fulton massacre on
Labor Day. Big Joss Is bound hand and
foot by a circus contract, and tho owners
of tho show have refused to glvo him a day
off It's pretty tough on the big champion,
for he Is missing an opportunity to pick up
a bundle of excessively soft money, and he
could do it without exerting himself. If
they could hold tho battto In the samo town
the circus Is showing In, Jess could take an
hour off, put Mr. Fulton away and appear
In tho next performance without belpg
docked by tho management.
Fulton, too, has been a star attraction
with another circus, but they gave him tho
gate a couplo of days ago and now he Is
back nmong tho homo folkB at Rochester,
Minn. He said he didn't care for tho roving
life of a performer, and will devote all his
time to getting Into shnpo for the battle
of his life, In case It Is pulled off.
According to a nows dispatch, a gang of
capitalists met In Grafton, W. Va , and put
up J4G.O0O. to bo divided unoqually between
tho battlers It was a good story and came
from the proper place Grafton.
Dutch Sommcrs Hurt
Dutch .Sommcrs, tho new coach of the
Michigan Aggies, probably will report Into
for football practice this fall. Two weeks
ago Sommora fell while playing handbnll
and broko his leg aboe tho nnkle. Yester
day was tho first day ho has been out, and
ho hobbled around on crutches.
Sommers Is worried over the Impending
nar with Mexico, as many of his star play
ers aro members of the student company of
tho college nnd aro likely to go to the front.
Tho UnUerslty of Indiana and seeral far
Western colleges have been nffccteU, nnd
Dutch fears all of his able-bodied athletes
will Insist on wrecking his team.
TENNIS MARVEL'S LONG LOVE
-FOR COURTS FALTERS SADLY
, WHEN NIPPED BY GOLF GERM
By SANDY McNIBLICK
ONE more convort I
George M. Church, one of the su
premest of the supremo In tho tennis world,
now admits with an Inspired light In his
eye that he has the golf bug.
The youthful racquet star docs not deny
that this game, stranger to his love, has
entered his life, and that golf cmelops
meat of bis waking thoughts.
"I almost could give up tennis for It,"
he, said. "I would gladly, only for the ties
It has on me."
In the tennis tourney at Wilmington on
Saturday, when Church 'was defending his
title against J. J. Armstrong, challenger, on
the courts, he was noticed to be fidgety and
to, peer on tlptoo over tho gallery to see
what was doing on tho golf links which
surround the courts.
After ho whacked out the last point, he
didn't wait muqh m,oro than to mop his
brow, shake hands and pack away his rac
quets before he was off to follow the final
of the golf tournament between Frank 'Dyer,
Pennsyhanla State champion, nnd Hoover
Bankard, premier from Chicago.
Wins First Trophy
Last year Church entered his first golf
tourney at Atlantic City In the fall. He
won the third defeated eight from some
food players and took home his first links
It Is Bald he Is prouder of It than all the
(Uttering and formidable array of tennis
plate that adorns his shelves. The curly
headed former Princeton athlete puts the
aama'pep" Into golf that he does In tennis.
He smashes (he ball after a nervous, quick
troke and then he dashes in "to the net"
er, rather, the golf term for "net," which
w sometimes "hazard."
In a Chestnut street window Is exhibited
a pair of golf gloves, yellow chamois they
are and all lovely. They are labeled
;Fownes Gloves." We suppose they are In
tended to be "relies" of the battlefield, like
helmet with a hole In It, but If the gloves
really were worn by "Bill" Fownes, con
queror of Oulmet Just before the latter was
banished to professional ranks, we would
dispute the point with the storekeeper,
when we saw the former national cham
pion play, "BJU" Fownes" gloves were
nothing but hardened and sun-Baked epi
dermis with a few strips of adhesive tape
here and there.
Who's Who Hereabouts

PRELIM MATCHES OVER
Although there were 41 entries for the
singles In the annual tennis charrtplopshtji
of Philadelphia and dlBtrlct at the German
tort ii Cricket Club- Manhelm, ye Bterday, the
field lacked the class of previous years, and
when the draw was announced It looked as
though th chatnplon, W. T. Tllden, 2d, had
nothing much to beat In order to retain
his title. Tllden, however, was compelled
to withdraw on account ot an Injury suf
fered In, tho Delawrire dhSrrjplonshlp last
week. ' '
With the withdrawal of Tllden. Stanley
W. Pearson and Itowlarid Evans, Jr., look
llko probable 'finalists unleBS Bomo dark
horse should furnish an Upsot.
Nineteen matchei were decjded yesterday
afternoon nnd all of them resulted accord
ing to form. In tho preliminary round B.
C. Hall, of Moorestown, gave C, Stanley
Rogers, a former finalist, a stubborn battle,
despite the fact that 'It lasted only two
sets Rogers took the first set, 6-4, and
although ho won the second, 7-C, he came
perilously near losing It m6re than once.
The only match to go three sots In the preliminary-
round was that between T. C.
Leonards, of University Counts, and L. E.
Jones, of Germantown, the former winning
the nrst set, 6-1. losing the second, 4-C. and
capturing the third, 0-3. W. P. Rowland,
of Bclflcld, had his hands full with George
Hoffltctter, Jr, of the Philadelphia Cricket
Club In tho first Bet of their match Hof
stettcr's short lob provcdpusltns to Row
land, but ho managed to win after 16
games. In the second set Rowlnnd changed
his tactics and came up to tho net fre
quently, with tho result that Hofstetter
captured only one game.

MACK WILL BE HOME TOMORROW
WITH HIS NEW ARRAY OF YOUNG
BLOOD FOR THE 1917 MACHINE
Collegiate Stars With Athletics Display Natural
Hitting Ability and May Bolster Up Strong
Team for Next, Year
Dy 6HANDLER D RICHTER
MANAOtilt MACK, of tho Athletics, will
hrjng his squad of rectults back to
this city tomorrow and real work of con
structing another famous baseball machine
wilt start. With one or two exceptions, an
of tho recruits Mack Is counting upon for
the new machine have reported and dur
ing the long homo stand fell will bo seen
In action. , ,
Mack's youngsters have made a great
Impression In Boston, and the scribes ana
fans of tho New England city bollee that
tho Athletics will be In the running next
season If Mack can uncover a pitcher or
two out of the squad of collego hurlers
who havo been picked up Tho brilliant
pitching ot Shechan ami Nabors In Boston
presages good things for the future and
bears out the prediction of Mack that both
men would develop at a surprising rate late
Tho most encouraging thing about tne
Work of the recruits tried out to dale has
been their hard hitting. Mack always has
ben strong for youngsters with hitting pos
sibilities, and earlier In tho season remarked
that ho nover paid any attention to the
fielding ability of young players, but that
what he wanted was hitters Ho sa d ho
would take a chance on being nblo tn
teach a youngster to rield nnd would keep
them so lone ns thoy looked like hltterB.
Every ono of tho youngsters tried out In
Boston showed great natural batting abil
ity. Porhnpa after the major league pitch
ers hae pitched to them once or twice all
will fall shy of tho mark, but Mack doos
not think bo. Ho Is enthusiastic about the
outlook, according to reports from Boston,
and when Connie enthuses over nnythlng
ho must bo very well satisfied.
Tho yongstera nre still a trifle crudo In
the field, but that was to bo expected. Thoy
probably will toss away many games this
senson through unBtcndy fielding and In
oxperlonce, but tho Impression Is gencrnl
that Mack has the material at hand which
will be developed Into a pennant winner
within two years.
Another pleasing feature of the work of
tho Mackmen during the last woek has been
tho brilliant work of Lawton Witt. The
youngster has been batting at a terrific
clip, most of his drives being timely, whllo
his fielding In Boston haB been sensational.
Witt Is a great hitter and Is Just beginning
tn take chances on tho bases, his work In
this department bringing great prnlso from
Mack told tho writer beforo tho Athletics
departed for tho West that Witt had gone
beyond tho experimental stage and would
soon stnrt to acquire tho necessary finish.
He said that he was not quite certain that
shortstop was tho proper pl.ico for Witt
but that the youngster was very much like
Collins and some position must be found
Tho work of the Mackmen will be fol
lowed with Interest by baseball fans
throughout the country and It Is likely that
the attendance will be better than In two
or throe years.
It Is likely' that Manager Moran will
depart from his usual custom and that
Alexander tho Grent will be on the mound
In tho final game with the Bravci this
afternoon, The three straight defeats at
tho hands of Stalllngs' team makes this
moo necessary, as thero apparently Is no
other pitcher on the Phllly start capablo of
stopping the Braves now.
Georgo Chalmers Is the only other twirl
er available, and as he Is generally more
effective against tho Giants thnn any other
team In tho league, whereas Alexander has
seldom been beaten by the Braves, It la
likely that a switch will be mado.
A few weeks ago Manager Stalllngs, of
the Braves', made tho remark that he was
through sending star twlrlera against Alex
ander, as he was about convinced that It
was wasting his belt pitching talent In a
hopeless attempt to beat tho wonderful Nc
braskan. We are anxious to seo whether
Stalllngs follows out his Idea, as Dick Ru
dolph Is slated to work on tho mound for
If Stalllngs goes through w 1th hli nretont
plnn, ho will take a chance on a youngster,
or a pitcher looked upon as an uncertainty.
In preference to wasting Rudolph. Stalllngs
followed out t,hls plan In the first game of
the Berles, when he sent Jess Barnes In to
Barnes had not pitched for three weeks
ATLANTIC LEAGUE BREAKS
AFTER MAKING HARD FIGHT
Disbanding of Reading Club Proves
Climax to Minor Organization
A meeting of the Atlantlo Baseball League
was to hate been held at Easton, Pa last
night, but owing to the disbanding of the
Reading team after the game Sunday at
Allentown the meeting was not held apd
the league has suspended operations for the
time being, at least.
Wilmington was the nrst city of the cir
cuit to experience Insurmountable trouble
and the team was kept on the road In vain
hopes ot a rehabilitation of the club. Then
Al I-awson bolted Reading, leaving that club
high and dry. A coterie or business men
rushed to the rescue, Next the Pottsvllle
team threw up the sponge and then It was
decided to cut the league down to four
clubs, Reading, Easton, Paterson and Allen
town. As the Reading team experienced difficul
ties and disbanded, the othor clubs decided
that efforts made to continue at this time
would bo useless. The very unseasonable
weather and many rainy days are ascribed
as the reason for the league's failure. No
plans have yet been made for a revival
ot the league.
