ANDY "The Radiator Man" 418 Fifth -Street South In the ring with Bonds. This match was made early last week and was widely advertised, so that the public, when Jjuying high-priced reserved seats, .'iTew exactly what the managers ha't planned for the star attraction. Dempsey, before he was called into the ring, contributefi. $500 to the war fund. Then he stripped for action, prepared to live up to lus word othondn' As 'sbon as Dempsey climbed Uiroogh the ropes he discovered that, insteadu of Bonds! Jeamtette was ready to meet hihv Marplots and jealous soreheads who were anxious to discredit and embarrass Dempsey be-caose he h�d 'knocked out Levinsky in alrecent mill in Philadelphia were behind-this ''frame up" that resulted in thei'departiire of Dempsey, without puttingi,np4U8 hands,and also handed, another black eye to flie bbilng game. Tbere^was no excuse for Jeannette's ftppear��ce with a chjp on his. shool';,, der. The persons who induced him to ChiUInige Dempsey, in spite of the iSarden: managerfs plans, deserve to be cedsured for tactics Hhat had -a, lot to doi�rith the yepfeal'ot the ^rawlej'' boxing-law at this instance of Cover-no/ Wfiitlnan. Could/Have Squared Accounts in the RIno Itenipsey could have aquared accounts wltii his enemies by handing a beating to Jeannette. The Califomlan has proved his wonderful fighting ability by- knocking but Pred Fulton and ; IjeVlhsky; :alia by Whipping other al-' legfed heavyweight chUlengers. Jeannette'still, is a clever-boxer, hut he hevei: was much of a slugger, and in six rounds 'with Dempsey he would have '-been ""si:Tlarmless proposition. Pair minded sporting men do not be-llevs that Dempsej^ feared the negro, .who was exploited Saturday night as a result of petty grievances, but wh(in the Callfomian left the ring, after refusing to fight "an old man," he certainly lost prestige and popularity. It would have been a great pftrsbnal triumph fbr Dempsey if he had stopped Jeannette, in' spite of the -coICred loan^B; age, for Sb would have shown a wlUingnesB to fight at the, dron of the hat. The tendency to sidestep or .refuse' challenges for business reasons has injnired the boxing'game in this country. "There Ip too much com-ImeVcIallBfni, .whidh, coupled with a lack of sportsmanship and a desire to resort to sharp practice", is a tremendous obstacle in thfe path of new leg-IslaUon. ,Inacti\'ity Serious Menace to any Sporting Enterprise, Says Brooklyn Manager Wilbert Robinson, manager of the Dodgers, who is as close and wise a student of thn same tr* anybody associated with baiobail, -s of the opinion [that the major leagues sjhould operate in 1919 if cnly^ aj5 on ECt of self-protection.
