Ross' recenl performances in California made It plain thai he is far from being sharp when scal- ir.g more than 130. McLarnin will have been off the firing line for one day less than a year when he nnfimbcrs his heavy artillery against Ross. That is the only argument offered by lhe few professing to believe the Ixillapaloosa of the Loop can prevail. But those pointing lo the fact that ring rust frequently sets in with idleness might interview Pelrollc, who speaks from experience.

The joust between Jack 'BritJ ton and Benny Leonard—the one In which Benny took a poke at Jack while the 147-pound foreman was on one knee—may well be thrown out. Roche goes 'way back—to March 10. 1899—in recalling an engagement similar to the one that is to bring out Nfcljirnln and Ross. It was on that night in San Francisco that brave George Lavigne assayed io lifi Mysterious Billy Smith's crown. A one-sided duel ended in the fourteenth round, when the wide- shouldered wallopr of Maine turned to the Saginaw Kid's brother and second, and shouted, "Do vou vant me to kill him?" Roche doesn't mention a much more recent case. Billys eyes haven't functioned so well in late years.' But those who saw littic , Singer laying In the resin pounding the sides of his neck after bc- mg struck back of the ear by Mc- larnin never will forget the sight. And Smith and McLarnin did 142 pounds for the tragedies thai left Lavigne and Singer definitely through.
