Full; "Match C, or thereabouts. -arc to leavu whether the birth-rate, a-s csti mated by Itanium, is still in effect. A i present most oi tht light fans and critics arc pointing their nostrils, toward Juarez and snitlling t-h3 south vest, wind suspiciously. I have bombarded with lbtlci> inquiring whether or not the figli' .scheduled to take place botwcpn Jac! and JESS Willard on thai date will on Uic level. 1 do nol know. H they want to what I that's' different. I think not excusing Willard irom any parl of it, 1 do not believe .Jack .Johnson will fight any man on the level. FRAMED-UP BATTLES Admittirifi Hiat Johnson manages- roach the ot the battle without arrested, what is the ovitlook? Johnson has been lighting framed up battles for vcars.

Johnson is utterly untrustworthy, lie has, for three years, in no condition to fight n real battle. Com- pared ivitli ihe ue_sfro that beat JcT- irics he is a-joke. ISven so, there was enough, of his tremendous physical power lelt to RO twenty rounds with IMoran. The big negro is inordinately ego- tistical. He never would to be beaten. out' that possibility. KD A JOKE Willard is a joke as a heavyweight champion. Tie has the she, the strength and the endurance, hut, as to-vcr, Johnson would mate Jiim look cheap. Ho has height and Johnson "never has fought a mas as tall as himself. Willard'a past record amounts to Jittla, He is slow, awkward 'and tele- graphs his His footwork is clumsy, and one continually fears lie stumble over his feet and break ill's neck. His sole chance of whipping Johnson, if they fight honestly, shat the negro is so far out oi con- dition that half-a-dozen others could do the same thing. The whole aflair. looks tiad.
