The exact purpose of Joe's visit
ta the city of hills and smooth
pavement was not divulged by the
former champion, save that he was
looking for Charlie Hanson, "Farm

"Where's this Charlie person,"
yelled Joe. "A short time ago his
manager' blossomed forth with a
sweeping challenge to wrestle any
one in the world. Well, I ain a
member of this little ol' world and
am in, good standing, so why
shouldn't I accept his challenge?
"Hanson wants to wrestle me on
a winner-take-all basis. Tell him
for me that his offer sounds good
to yours truly, and if. he wants to
wrestle me on that basis all he has to
do is name the date and place., I
will be there.
"Furthermore, . if . Hanson's
manager toots his - horn and says
that I must build up a reputation
before meeting Charlie, tell him
that's the bunk. If Hanson and I
were to stage a Voting contest to-
morrow I would receive nearly .
three times as many votes as s
Charlie. That's how popular I am .
with the mat fans."
Joe really wants to wrestle Han
son. He believes ". such a match
would draw a banner crowd at the
ball ipark this ''summer.

Britton May Fight
and Leonard Soon, Writes Manager
Dan Morgan, who' counts the shek
els at the box office white Jack Brit
ton performs in the ring, writes that
the champion may fight Gene Tun
ney, lightweight title holder, and
Benny Leonard, lightweight cham
pion, in the near future. The bout
with Leonard is "practically closed,"
His letter follows:
New York. April S4, 1922.
Sporting- Editor, Tho Bee, Omaha, Neb.
Dear Sir: Britton will be In great
shape when he step Into the ring- with
Cowboy Padgett on May 7, for Britton
la never out of shape. He ia always
expecting the young strong boys to try
and win his championship.
Britton has whipped every welter and
middleweight In the country and he is
now tj?ing to get Gene Tunney to box
him for the light heavyweight cham
pionship of America. Although Britton
Is only a 115-round boxer, he is strong
and clever enough to meet heavy
weights. Britton Is practically matched with
Benny Leopard at an open-air show that
will take place here. In June. The bout
will prove who is the most scientific
boxer In the world today.
Mike Gibbons. Facky McFarland and
many others' say that Britton Is with
out an equal as a boxer, and will whip
Leonard to & certainty. Jack will try
and convince the Omaha boxing fans
Schlaifer and Padgett Matched

Morrie Schlaifer and Cowboy Padgett have been matched to fight at
Davenport, la., May 12.
Both boxers were, given a fiat guarantee of $1,200.
The match 'was made for Schlaifer by Johnny Creeley, who once
more is handling the "Kid."
The bout is expected to be the biggest drawing card ever put on in
the Iowa city. .
Creeley is negotiating for a bout .for Schlaifer ,at Peoria, I1L, with

According to a press dispatch re
ceived from Paris yesterday. Jack
Deropsey intends to., visit' tho '
Rhineland and give an exhibition
for the "Doughboys," who are still
walking up and down the banks of

Eneland was disappointed because
jack Dempsey didn't look as feroci

of the Happy Hollow players get

presumably use their drivers."
That's enough, "Bob."
Jack Lelivelt, former manager of
the Omaha club, has started on his
slugging rampage again this sea
son. In the first dozen games Capt.
Lelivelt, skipper of the Tulsa Oiler
crew, rapped the pellet for an average
of .440. :.
Not so bad, eh?
