NO TITLE FIGHT TILL AFTER WAR Jack Dempsey Willing to Give the Gate Receipts to War Charity By now comes Jack flushed with the joy of a 23 rather over Fred looking for some thing a little He wants a bout with Jess his intention being to take away that champion ship as a heavyweight that Jess is carrying so And because he knows that the only heavyweight fight America is inter ested in at the present moment is that world championship scrap over Jack has made a proposition which he hopes will overcome the has pledged his end of the gate receipts to any war charity that may be decided No Bout Until After Even those who have been watching the writing on the that writing which is so kaleldoscop ically changing things in boxinR and other that it is practically an assured thing that the WillardDempsey fight will never be until the referee calls a knockout blow in favor of democracy in the de mocracyautocracy fight now Awd at if the WillardDempsey engagement is brought about through the intervention of sonie army camp which Induces Jess to trainadd scrap to add a thousands to war it will be a friendly enemy sort of a as far as the champ1 is He has Jet it be known that for Dempsey

a false alarm are rumors and nothing ami that here is a lad who may well make a record I before he gets And even his enemies are on his admiration list as the result of the speed and alacrity with which he brought the constella tion of heaven before Fultons unsus pecting vision in that memorable en counter in is the kind of a chap American glove fans fall sure with a hit that says Theres the and adds as youre stay And they Jess There are those who believe that while good fellow and is using the war and the difficulties he has encountered because of it as a blind behind which to hide his perfect willingness not to fight If that be and Willard will not fight at Dempsey is pretty near out of the fighting for theres only Miske and Billy we be would admit what the answer would be in the event took him if this is an or a sal let us concede that Dempsey is a 1918 hundred horsepower fighting who hits to win and wins only to hit Hes a battler from the start of the with no make believe or feinting in his sys who likes the game for the fight there is in it and the TAKES A SHOT AT MAGNATES Former Baseball Man CrlticiXN Base ball New major league mag nates are acting like school said a
