Agast bammy Mdndell at Wrigley Field BY PAUL LOWRT Ace Hudkins versus Pete Latzo for the welterweight title. Sammy Mandell versus Jackie Fields, ten rouirds, to a decision, or iweive rounas to no decision at the championship weight. These were the two bouts Dick. Don-to no deolslon and over the weight, aid had In mind yesterday following the Hudkins-Colima Imbroglio, one of the most success- ' ful outdoor bouts ever staged In Southern California. Latzo has been asked to risk his title here, but If he refuses Donald said he believes the bout is attractive enough to stage a catch-weight and draw a btg crowd. Hudkins has a tremendous following - which would turn out to the man in the hope of seeing him defeat the 147-pound , king. Contrary to the expectation of Man-deli and hts manager Eddie Kane, the Wrigley Field promoter will not stage s Mandell-Flelds bout unless here le some sort of a kick attached to it. - , - v '" ! v; ! ! L i- -PETE LATTQ. M ANUEL ALONSO, the dashing, fiery Spaniard, who was ranked second among the players of the country by the United States Lawn Tennis Association last month, will make a strong bid In the near future to' win the Indoor championship of his adopted land. Alonso is known as one of the fastest players In the game and his chief op ponent on the board i courts of the Seventh Regiment Armory will be another "Lightning Latin," Jean Borotra, of France, who, many con sider, is ' Just as fast as, or faster than, Manuel Alonso. For those who delight In dash and color and a fast pace In sports, this meeting between the "Bounding Basque" and the "Animated Aragon-ese" should be full of thrills. Give me a chance to watch brilliant court-burning demons like Alonso and Borotra every timet I'd rather see a match between these two any day than one between La Coste and Johnston, for instance.

() Jim Ma-loney and Jack Sharkey, rival Boeton heavyweight title contenders, will do no more fighting until they crawl through the ropes for their fifteen - round match at the Yankee Stadium on May 19. Tex Rickard, who has both men und era long - term contract, put up the barriers today against further preliminary competition for either Boston battler on the theory that he cannot afford to take any risk on injuries or mishaps that would upset the outdoor heavyweight program. The immediate result of the promoter's edict is cancellation of Ma-loney's prospective bout in Cleveland against Johnny Risko, a match that promised to take on unusual Interest (Continued on Page 2, Column S) IM A LONE.

After Hagenlacher was defeated this afternoon by Felix ; range of France. 400 to 378, the dopesters had settled upon his overthrow by the Belgian.

Tomorrow's en-counter will open the exhibition - game season for both the Sheiks and Bruins.
