The last of the preliminary details of the boxers, promoters and the construction of the arena were completed today, and with the gathering up of stay strands, arrangements hav*» been completed for the Jess Willard-Jack Dempsey championship bout here Friday. Willard and Dempsey planned only light workouts for today, Willard boxing only a few rounds with tired and battered sparring partners. The challenger confined his efforts to some shadow boxing.  Today the last nail will be driven into the great arena, which will seat 80,000 and is one of the largest ever built, It was constructed at a cost of $150,000 and required 175,000 feet of lumber.

In fact it is virtually the only outdoor sport to which the Brazilians have taken with much enthusiasm. There is some interest in tennis, swimming and rowing, but football is to the younger generation of Brazil what baseball is to the people of the United States. Brazilians are not interested in baseball.  The game was adopted In Brazil about fifteen years ago. Interest awakened by the games played by the British residents was quickened by the return of Brazilian youths from school in England. A few of them joined the British teams anft later formed clubs of their own. Today there are as many clubs iii Rio de Janeiro as there are amateur baseball clubs iii one of our largt cities of the United States. All are amateur organizations and many leagues ex.st in this city under the supervision of the “Metropolitana de  This intermitional championship has been held 'three times only, beginning in 1916 in Buenos Ayres with UurgUay victorious. In 1917 it was held in Montevideo and Uruguay won again. The 1918 series was postponed owing to the Spanish influenza epidemic in Brazil in October and did not take place until May, 1919. Rio de Janeiro being the city and the victorious team Brazil. The next series for the year 1919 will be held in Santiago, Chile, late this year. A plan to have the United States enter this championship has been frequently discussed here, with a view to making it an “All-American” affair.  In Rio de Janeiro, the Flumeness club with a membership of 3,000 recently constructed a half million dollar stadium and it was here that the recent championship games were played. With a seating capacity of 30.000. the stadium was filled Tor each of the six games.

LONDON, July 2.—The position of the British dirigible R-34 at 8 o’clock this morning was 55 degrees and 20 minutes latitude and IO degrees and 4 5 minutes west longitude, about 125 miles off the Irish coast, according to a wireless disat ch from the aircraft received by the air ministry.

In adopting the game the English expressions were also" accepted and the shrieks of “foul,” “offside” and “shoot    the    goal,”    coming    from the  lips of    the    Brazilians are    always a  source    of    much    surprise to the  North    American    seeing    his first  game.  Sheriff Duncan and Constable V. alter Goyne arrested a moonshine still yesterday in the Union Hill community. They captured the whole outfit and arrested Elmer Yancey, its proprietor. Mr. Yancey had in his possession eight pints of good, old corn which he had made and had a can of twrelve gallons cooking when the officers arrived. The still was in his chicken house. Walter Goyne says it was good whiskey. Mr. Yancey w r as brought to Ada and lodged in jail. The punishment for an offense of this kind is no less than ninety days in jail or a fine of no less than $500. The federal officers can also arrest him, and do almost anything with him they wish.  in the district court against his wife, Ollie Burnett, to obtain divorce.

Coleman, who is here ml a representative of the governi^en?, to teach the nursing w'ork to the teachers.  The program tonight will be interesting and instructive in many particulars. A regular hospital will be shown with the pupils acting as nurses and doctors. Injured patients will be brought in and treated right before the eyes of the audience, j There are 93 members of the class just closed and something of what they have learned in connection with nursing will be shown.  Mrs. Coleman, who is teaching the nursing work at the Normal, was sent here by the government to try out the plan of instituting nursing as one of the regular courses at the local school. She is one of the veteran nurses of the Spanish-American war and probably knows as much about *ber sub-JecI as any woman in the country.  I The young ladies who have taken her course have all stood a physical examination, not through compulsion, but simply to show’ that they are in a good state of health and know’ how to take care of their bodies.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, June 2.— (By Wirer less o Associated Press)—The presidential voyage continues under most favorable conditions with calm seas and mild weather. President Wilson has done some work on his speech to congress, but on the advice of his physician, Rear Admiral Grayson, he is giving a considerable part of his time to rest and recuperation.  No precise plans nave been announced concerning the presentation of the president’s message. It seems probable the George Washington will arrive in New' York on Monday as has been expected. The treaties are expected to be submitted and the message read to congress by next Wednesday or Thursday.

Let's have the greatest day of all next Sunday.—Methodist Sunday School Booster.  Let A Want Ad Get It for you.  By Ed W. Smith (Noted Ring Expert and Referee) TOLEDO, Ohio, July 2.—Jack Kearns, manager of Jack Dempsey, thinks that Jess Willard will get such a beating next Friday that he will just sit in his corner and decline to come out for more punishment. If this does happen, it will be a record in ring history, for no champion ever lost his title without gamely taking all that was coming to him, even if it did come on the point of his chin and qn his solar plexus.  I caught Kearns just after Dempsey, like a wild timber wolf, had leaped and crushed Bill Tate, his towering sparring partner.  “That’s the way to fight and that’s the way to train,” remarked one bystander.  “I thmk so,” said the manager, and then he started to unbosom him self of a few ideas that he had in mind.  While we’re discussing this thing of fighting let me tell you about something that has been on my mind for some time, and I want to make myself entirely plain.  No Secrets in Camp.  “There is nothing in the Dempsey camp that is secret at all. Anybody we have confidence in can come in here at any time and find out what we are doing. A lot of stuff has been printed about how Dempsey will fight this big fellow on the Fourth; much of it is solid sense and a great deal more of it is rot.    *  People come in here every day with suggestions about how’' Jack should fight. Some say he should stand off and box at long range with the champion, and others say he should buckle right in and tear away at the big chap’s belly. They have a lot of ideas, some of them coo I and ’some of them utterly ridiculous.  “Now, w’hat I want to say at this time    about    his system    of    fighting  is just this:    Jack Dempsey    has only  the one way of going in when time is called for the first round. Hd never did anything but this rn hie life, and it is my candid opinion that    if he lives to be    a    hundred  yea s old and is fighting every one of those years he will do nothing else but that.  “He’ll tear in when the first bell is sounded, and will crowd the champion to the limit. He w’ill go in. in that zigzag manner of his, wagging his head from side to side, and ripping in all sorts of punches from    every    conceivable    angle.  Jack is a Bulldog.  “That’s his only style, and what's the use of the critics talking of him using any other? Jack is a good boxer, but he is not fancy in anything that he does. He is a bulldog wrho knows nothing but fighting as soon as he hears the smash of that gong.  “And he’ll give this champion, who isn't the gamest man in the w'orld, the biggest surprise of his career w’hen he gets his first taste of one of his punches. It is my belief that there never in any time was such a fighter as Dempsey, and when I say this I don’t care whom you take in—all the Sullivans and the Corbetts and the Fitzsimmons and Jeffries and all that lot.  “All of the old-timers went by the book. By that I mean that they had the stereotyped way of proceeding when the bell rang. This fellow is totally different in every Way. He doesn’t box, he doesn't fiddle, he doesn’t feel his man out. He doesn’t do anything that the ordinary fighter does. He simply goes in there with the greatest smashes man ever delivered and nobody can stand up under the cannonading he will deliver.  “ITI repeat right here that Willard will be the first champion to ever sit in his corner and admit defeat. By that I mean that I believe that Willard will refuse to come out of his corner for one of the rounds, which one I would not care to predict. Just that and noth*  (Continued on Page Eight.)
