JACK TURNS 77 Former world heavyweight champion Jack Oempsey poses In front of a mural depicting hii knockout of Jess Willard In Toledo, Ohio, July 4, 1919, in Dempsey's New York restaurant recenlly. He is 77 years-old today, (AP Wirephoto) Dempsey still noticed no matter where he goes "He faked me said McDowell. "He's hilling .199 ac- tually .203 and I'm looking for him to bunt with two on, none put and the score tied that late in the game. If I had known he was going to swing away, I wouldn't have thrown him that pitch." Arlin, 7-6, walked three and struck out eight. In other games, Cincinnali Reds thumped Houston Astros 7-1, Los Angeles Dodgers edged Atlanta Braves 2-1, Pittsburgh Pirates beat Chicago Cubs 4-2, Montreal Expos trimmed Phila- delphia Phillies 2-1 and St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets was rained out. Cincinnati regained first In the West as Ross Grimsley pitched a five-hitter and was hacked by Johnny Bench's 19th homer of the year in Ihc fourth. The Astros scored their lone run when Grimsley cut loose a wild pitch in the ninth with a man on third. Frank Robinson's 10th homer won the game for Los Angeles before its largest home crowd of the season, His sixth-in- ning shot following Willie Davis' double put him in a tie with Eddie M a t h e w s and Ernie Banks for career homers with 513. Robert Clemente drove In two runs with a wind-blown triple as the Pirates rallied for three runs in the fourth. The victory over Chicago was Steve Blass' eighth straight and raised his record to 9-1. Right-hander Mike Torrez, 8- 3, of Montreal and the Phils' Jim Nash pitched scoreless ball for seven innings before Oscar Gamble drove in a Philadelphia run.

And it has been 53 years since he won the heavyweight cham- pionsliip, but Jack Dempsey is still recognized instantly wher- ever he goes. Admirers of all ages gather al the Broadway restaurant which bears his name, hoping for a glimpse of the Manassa Mauler whose two-fisted bob-and-weave style captivated the sporting world during the Roaring '20s. Some peer through the windows. Others sit at the bar nursing a drink and casting quick glances at the hulking figure occupying a table near the entrance. Dempsey, a warm, sincere man, is only too wiling to shake a hand and say hello. He celebrated his 77th birth- day today and the restaurant now is the biggest part of his life. He spent most of the for- tune he earned with his slashing fists, but he still has the memo- ries and an army of fans. Young and old share a com. mon admiration for the cham- pion who gave boxijlg its first million-dollar gate and whose exciting style reflected an era of wild abandon. "Would 1 do it again Sure. 1 loved it. Boxing was very good to he says. How does the current crop of heavyweighls compare with those of 50 years ago "Joe Frazier is a good can punch and take ought to fight more. Clay (Muhammad AH) is a good boxer but he's not a fighter."

East boxers domination must end EDMONTON (CP) The dominance of Eastern Canada on the Canadian Professional Boxing Federation must be stopped if the sport is to ad- vance in Canada, trainer Scotty McGrandle said Friday. McGrandle said in a state- ment he intends to discuss set- ting up a Western Canada pro- fessional boxing association to affiliated with the World Boxing Association with two western boxing promoters, Mitch Klimov and Al Superstein and "ignore the eastern bunch." "I think it can be McGrandle added. He said the fighter he trains, Joiina Lowv, has been trying to meet Canada's middleweigrl champion, Dave Downey of Hal- ifax, for two years. "But while we've offered a substantial financial arrange- ment and agreed to meet Dow- ney anywhere in on an ice Canadian federation doesn't seem to be able to force this title holder to meet Louw, the obvious chal- he said. "It seems Downey, who re- c e n 11 y defeated welterweight Joey Durrell, is dictating whom he wants to fight to defend his title." He said Louw, 26, has a record of 12 knockouts in 19 fights, winning four or> decisions and losing three in his 214-year career and is scheduled to meet Dave Hilton of Nova Scotia July 18 in Vancouver. "I have some great memo- ries. I remember when I fought (Jess) Willard for the title ID 1919. I had heard he was big. I was standing in the got here I heard cheer- Ing. I turned arotind and this big guy was standing :here. 'I looked at him and 1 ihought: 'My God. I'm not fight- ing for the title, I'm fighting for my life." But the 245-pound Willard was the one who fought for his life against the crouching, snarling, 180-pound Dempsey who tore out at the opening bell and floored him seven times in the first round. The hapless Willard was saved from a knockout by the bell but absorbed a merci- less beating for the next two rounds. He didn't answer the bell for the fourth. LOST TO TUNNEY Dempsey lost his crown by a decision to Gene Tunney in 1926 before a record crowd of fans. He had been idle for al- most three years. Dempsey was rematched with Tunney a year later and again the former marine danced around the plodding mauler, spearir.g him with jabs and landing jarring combinations. Dempsey's legs were almost gone but his Wallop was not. In the seventh round he shook Tun- ney with' a left hook and then sent him tumbling to the canvas under a rain of blows. Derapsey, however, at first refused to move to a neutral corner, thereby delaying the count. In all, Tunney rested on the floor 17 time lo recover and pound out a unanimous decision. Now Dempscy walks with the aid of a cane. "I have some trouble with ar- thritis and my back bothers me he explained. He injured his back In 1923 when Luis Firpo knocked him out of the ring at the New York Polo Grounds and on to a type- writer in the press row.
