INSIDE STUFF ON GOTHAM BOXING:
SLIP TWO HURLERS NO-HIT GAMES
Ringside Spins Yarn of How
Promoters Frame on Fred
Fulton in Order to Kill
Chicago, May 26. It is becoming
more and more evident why Governor
Whitman of New York, especially,
and itate executives in general; are
down on the fight game.
A case in Doint the insirle etr,r f
the recent Fred Fulton-Carl Morris
go, won Dy Morris.
Early in the year Fred Fulton's
stock began soaring. He was touted
by many as the only man who could
take Jess Willard's measure. In each
fight he showed up a little better
It was not long until there was a
clamor from the fans for a match be
tween the Minnesota plasterer and
the world's champion. The result was
a statement by VVillard that it was up
to Fulton to beat the best of the field
aspiring to the crown, and then he
, would talk business.
This Fulton did in ranid nrrW until
Carl Morris remained about the only
eligible left to tight. And here is
wiiere the story really begins.
Fulton, it seems, was willing to
wait awhile to see how Morris was
going, but some promoters down m
New York thought differently. They
not only thought he should fight
Morris quickly, but that Morris should
end for all time his aspirations for
Thereupon they began casting about
for a go between Morris and some
other scrapper in which Morris would
put up a miserable showing. Fulton,
thinking Morris would be easy money,
then could be easily induced to enter
the ring with him.
Pick Mystery Man.
For an opponent the promoters
picked a mysterious person from no
where and began calling him the
money. He was a whirlwind, about
the fastest thing that had come to
' New York in a decade. So the fight
world, including Fulton, picks up its
ears and waits eagerly for the con
test. The night of the fight comes. Fred
Fulton and his manager saunter up
to the box office.
Do we need seats? they ask.
"Oh, no," replied the box office
man. "Special seats are reserved for
you. so r red and his manager, seat
ed by the ringside, glimpse the show.
Carl enters the ring. His belt is so
tight that folds of fat roll over him
and the fans begin to talk about it.
They don't hesitate to say that he
hasn't trained for the conflict, and
that he isn't a real scrapper, anyway.
ihats all right as tar as Larl is con
cerned, because he wants to create
an out-of-condition appearance.
Then in comes the mysterious no
body from nowhere. He looks the
money, and the fans have it settled
The fight begins. In the first round
the mysterious nobody simply slaps
Carl all around the ring. In the sec
ond he repeats the dose. In the
third Morris does a little better, but
in the fourth his opponent resumes
the offensive, slams over a foul, Carl
crumples up and the bout is over.
Somehow or others the promoters
just ran into Fulton the next day.
They immediately began to talk lip a
match between Fulton and Morris.
Willard, they said, would insist that
he fight Morris just because the lat
ter was claiming the right for a whack
at the title, and, besides, Morris would
be easy money.
The outcome? There could be only
one. The match was arranged and
fought. Morris literally licked the
stuffin' out of the would-be champion
and sent him back to comparative
While Fulton went into the fight
with his eyes open, and there is not
much sympathy for him where- the
inside story has been known, the con
duct of the promoters obviously was
one that would tend further to blacken
Small wonder that Whitman and a
lot more governors have no love for
the ring pastime.
New Bantam Sensation.
With the bantamweight division
just now in the limelight, Harry
Hughes, a former Chicago newspaper
man, but now a New York traveler,
comes forth with a man he thinks is
going to do wonders among the pee
wees. "I want to make a bid for notice
for one of the scrappiest little scrap
pers that ever entered a ring," he said.
"That man is Toe Burman, the Chi
cago boy who lias been making good
with such a vengeance in the east

fCicotte and Koob Sneak In
Hall of Fame While Door
Keeper Is' Pounding
By JACK VELOCK.
New York, May 26. Two pitchers
credited with no-hit games by the
official scorers in the American
league this season seem to have
slipped through the door of the Hall
ot fame while the doorkeeper was
puunanig nis nonoraDie ear.
Reports from St Louis indicate
mac naa not the scorers been very,
very lenient with Eddie fientt. .nH
Ernie Koob, their no-hit games would
nave gone cown in the records as one-
hit games. All of which indicates
inat tne omcial scorers, even in th
Dig leagues, are prone to concede
point here and there to help the
pitcners put over a hitless contest.
There wasn't much said regard
the game Eddie Cicotte pitched
against me nrowns on April 14, toi
the only batted ball that really re
sembled a hit, according to all re
ports, came near the end of the rnh.
test when Eddie was roosting on the
threshold of the coveted troal. and
tne scribes calmly marked down an
error when Jimmy Austin smashed a
hot drive :it Chick Gandil, which was
fast enough to have torn a leg off
mat eminent nrst sacker. It that
batted ball was as fast and hard to
held as one St. Louis scribe has hint
ed, then Eddie Cicotte's no-hit game
was in reality a cne-hit game and he
Dreezea mrough because ot the ca
pable assistance of the scribes.
rirst reports on tne no-hit game
credited to Ernie Koob gave him
credit for a one-hit game. Later, it
is said, tne omcial scorer, after inter
viewing the members of both teams
and the umpires m charge that day,

Called Hit at First.
Pirates After Altenberg
To Hold Young Lee King
The Pittsburgh club arranged a
deal for Pitcher Duster Mails to go to
Birmingham, but he said he couldn t
stand the southern climate, so that
deal was called off and he was
shunted out to Portland in the Coast
league. Outfielder Jess Altenberg was
released to .Toronto of the Interna
tional league, much to the surprise of
Pittsburgh fans, who rated him a bet
ter outfielder than some of the mate
rial Callahan is keeping. The choice
with Callahan lay between Altenberg
and Lee King and the manager de
cided to retain King.
Handicap Match Against
Bogey for Women Monday
The Omaha Women's Golf asso
ciation will stage a handicap match
against bogey at the Omaha Field
club Mondav. This is the second of
the association's 1 monthly competi
tions. Par at the Feld club for wom
en is 83 and bogey is 97.
The play in question came when
Buck Weaver crashed a grounder to
Ernie Johnson, who was second-
sacking for Derrill Pratt, and Ernie,
say the reports, gave it a most valor
ous battle. He fielded it first with
his chest and knocked it down. Th
he picked the ball up, and with
scarcely time to throw, let it slip out
ot his hand and over his shoulder.
Then and there, it is said, the scribes
had argument, and finally the thing
was recorded as a hit.
As the game wore on and Koob
went through inning after inning
without allowing anything that looked
like a hit, 'the argument that had
come up m the first inning was re
newed and the scribes had it out
with the result aforementioned the
official scorer changing his first de
cision. First Judgment Best.
The average season base ball scribe
will a.srree that in practically ten
cases out of every ten the best judg
ment on a play is the first impression
of it. The official scorers should fol
low this rule invariably. They know
what the scoring rules permit and
how far they can go. They know
that many a batted ball is left to their
judgment, and it seams that in the
cases of both Koob and Cicotte snap
judgment would have been that the
batted balls in question should have
gone as hits plain, unadulterated
hits and nothing more.
If the official scorers are going to
console themselves by saying: "It
could have been scored either way,"
many a pitcher will get by with
no-hit game that he isn't entitled to.
Itk is not that the writer has any
thought of detracting from the hon
ors of either Cicotte or Koob, for
such superb pitching deserves only
the highest praise, but the fact re
mains that a hit is a hit, just the
same as "pigs is pigs," and you can't
get away from it.
Bransfield Making Good.
Old Kittv Bransfield is getting by
admirably as an umpire, and indica
tions are that he -will continue to
hold down his berth as long as he
renders the service he is giving in
the National league this season.
Bransfield's return to public notice
this ytar recalls the fact that as a
player he was a member of one of
the geratest infields the major
leagues have ever seen, an infield
which deserves or deserved more
credit than was given it as one of
the best ever gotten together.
In speaking of great infields, the
base ball scribes always enumerate
Anson, Pfeffer, Williamson and
Burns; Tenney, Lowe, Long and Col
lins: Doyle, Reitz, Jennings and Mc-
Graw; Chance, Evers, Tinker and
Steinheld; Mclnnis, Collins, Barry
and Baker. In all fairness it appears
that the Pirate four of IW3 should
be mentioned also.
This great old infield was com
posed of Bransfield, Ritchey, Wagner
and l.eacli. mere was quality mere,
all kinds of it. The members of that
old infield could hit the ball and field
better than the best of their day,
and collectively they were as great
as any other, if we are to believe the
old-timers who knew them in their

Famous Athletes Barred from Plattsburg for Physical Reasons
The news that three of the greatest
athletes in Harvard university have
been rejected by United States army

All of which calls to mind the case
of Melvin W. Sheppard, the greatest
half-miler of his time. Peerless Mel,
back in 1908, wanted to be a police
man. He was at the time a member
of the track team of the Irish-Ameri
can Athletic club, and therefore eligi
ble in every way to become a member
of the finest body of police officers in
the world. Then came the physical
examination, and to the utter amaze
ment of-every one, and to Sheppard's
deep chagrin, the examining surgeon
rejected the great runner because he
had a "bad heart."
It was just a few weeks later that
Sheppard showed the world how
"bad his heart was by racing to
victory against the best middle dis
tance runners in the world at the
London Olympic games, winning the
800-metre and 1,500-metre champion
ships from the cream of England's
vaunted distancers. That 1,500-metre
