Independent, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1957, Pasadena, CaliforniaRed Smith the Border raiders Shelby Mont the train from Seattle got Here at. . Sunday and if Floyd Patterson was looking out the window the quizzical Little smile that habitually on his lips must have broadened perceptibly. It happened Long before the heavyweight Champion was born yet surely his scholarly proprietor Cus has told him How two of their predecessors named Jack Dempsey and Jack Kearns Laid waste to this town 34 years ago. The sack of Shelby was consummated july 4, 1923. Dempsey defended his championship by out pointing Tommy Gibbons and Kearns squeezed the Community dry milking the Banks emptying the Box office making his getaway with the loot aboard a Railroad caboose. Outscoring a Light heavyweight Dempsey and Kearns made off with from a fight that Drew in dismantling an Amateur Patterson and d Amato grabbed for a show whose net Gate was the Only tangible asset Kearns left in Shelby was Salmon a tent show cowgirl whose yodelling so charmed the fight Moh that she was featured subsequently in the Ziegfield follies though Bunio Ned destiny ultimately dragged her into the dance marathons of depression Days. Even Here the parallel is striking for just As Salmon enchanted visiting Bon Vitants in Shelby so patrons of the arts who followed the Border raiders to Seattle were transported by Suzuki 100 pounds of Nisei dynamite with a voice that could loosen the tiles on Broadway s towers. Confederate Money carrying the parallel still farther there was a referee imported from Philadelphia in each instances Jimmy the Baron of Lei Perville pa., for Shelby Tommy Loughran the old Champ from South Philly for Seattle. The Only major difference was that Kearns withering touch was a local phenomenon blighting Only the area where he operated whereas most of the swag that d Amato carried off came not from Seattle but from Columbus a. Maybe if Cus telling his Tiger the Saga of Shelby can make Patterson i appreciate How faithful they have been to a classic tradition it May Cool the Champion s resentment regarding the source of his new wealth. According1 to an Able and reliable reporter Seattle s gifted Emmet Watson Patterson revealed some bitterness before the fight about the Georgia group whose lured him into the ring Willi fete i Ademacher. Floyd believed Watson wrote that there d have been no such guarantee except for racial prejudice that it was a matter of backing Rademacher As a White the changing language it is understandable that if Patterson Felt he was the tar get of a Jim Crow crusade he would not he disposed to kick Hack any part of his purse As he and Cus did after the Hurri Cane Jackson fight when Emil Lence the promoter was threatened with a deficit. They took the whole Quarter million from the georgians plucking the Angels pin feathers. With the loot to console him and his self esteem shored up by the knowledge that the glorious precedent of Shelby has been matched Floyd May be mollified. Whatever views he1 May have on the subject the fact is that White Hope is a term that has Long ceased to have any meaning in the fight mob where it originated. John Lardner testifies to this fact in his Book White hones and other during the Early Days of Joe Louis s reign John relates Dempsey Lent his name and re sources to a White Hope tournament intended to pro Duce n challenger for the title.
