Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE l^ETHBRIDCU': DAILY HfenALD WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER. 27, 1918 BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus I REAL BAITLER Victory Over Levinsky Alone Put8.Hiiri in Class With Leaders Ever, since Jack Dempsey loomed as a formidable contender for the heavyweight championship there has .....___ .raged ^ controversy as to his nation-i and Billy Miske of St. Paul. Meehaii bouts strictly through his superiority as a fighter. The suddenness with which Dempsey has toppled rugged heavies" like Fulton, Morris, Brennan and Levinsky not only accounts for the coyness of Willard in making a match but also strengthens the belief that Dempsey is the greatest heavyweight developed since the days of FitzsJmnions. He hits Tvlth the same catapultic force that marked Fitzsimmons' attack, he has greater speed* than the Cornish-man and he is a better boxer than the former champion. Meehan Should Be Next There now stand between Dempsey aad a match with Willard two men- William Meehan of Sau Francisco, allty. Apparently an attempt was made to prove that his status as a holds-'a foi�r-round; decision, over Dempsey, hut there is hardly a doubt fighter depended on his origin, and that the .Salt Lake boy would prevail even after he declared he was of Irish , over the Pat Fighter in a longer bout. descent and his family name Dempsey the' discussion continued. � It *aQW is quite evident that It makes no special difference -what his nationality is. as he hfts-demonstrat-�d that ho Is a fighter of the first rank.

POWLING W.S.COOK. Meehan Is a rolypoly chap, with lots of stamina and capacity for punishment, but with little boxing selerce and he is a light hitter. Such a man Is difficult to stop, and Dempsey *rould doubtless require 10 or 12 rounds in which to dispose of Meehan. MIcke Has Had Enough So far as Miske is concerned, there is much question as to whether the Minnesotan will ever again get into the ring with Dempsey. They met in St. Paul a few months ago Id a 10-round bout and Miske remained the limit, which result is declared to be due to the fact that he refused to sign articles unless he was guaranteed against knockout. Miske is on record with a refusal to meet Dempsey in a bout in Madison Square Garden, and unless he since has changed his mind he will not regard himself as a serious obstacle to the championship aspirations of Dempsey. Therefore it behooves Dempsey to make all haste,to get Meehan into the ring for a long bout, after which the Salt Lake walloper can insist on Willard fighting or retiring. * Punishment for Willard The disinclination of Willard to box on his merits for war funds has aroused much public opposition to the champion, and the question of punishing the Kansan is being discussed. One suggestion is to the effect that the chainplon has ostracised and that the next best man he declared the title holder. Such a project cojild not be carried out, and therefore' would be a waste of effort. The only punishment that could te inflicted on Willard would be to deprive htm of the title which he has used for commercial purpoiie? only. He can not be shorn of the championship except through the action of an authoritative boxing association, and there is no such organization. Easy to Discipline If the boxing managers and promoters of AmericA were represented in a national organization, after the manner of baseball, racing and other professional sports, it would be an easy matter to discipline Willard or any other champion who had no interest in his title save.the financial returns and notoriety. With s national boxing association to enforce a rule that all champions must defend their titles every six months-or, refusing to accept a bona fide challenge, forfeit to a challenger, Willard could be easily punished. The enforcement of such a rule in the case of Willard or other title holders fo his Ilk would make Ipipos-' Bible a repetition of his tactics. Until /the boxing fraternity organizes Willard will calmly pose as the heavyweight champion, and having the hide of a rhinocerous will merely smile at the shafts of criticism aimed at him.

Maddison and R. A. Smith. While the nominating committee was preparing Its recommendations a returned soldier asked what was to be done with the aliens. Personally he would like to see them all deported. This brought applause from the veterans, another of whom said that all aliens who had entered the couutry in the past ten years and had grown rich should be deported with the amount of money they had when they entered-and that would be^about five cents. Then there wouid be lots of land for everybody. Preaideat Longworth objected to Lethbrldg^ not having been -made a demobilization centre. It would work a great hardship on the men who have to wait over here to catch a local train out of Lethbridge, after having Availed over at Medicine Hat. Mr. Buchanan told what he had been doing to overcome this difficulty, and he was still In communication with Hon. Mr. Mewbnrn on this matter. The need for better medical and dental attention for'the returned soldiers in Lethbridge was also urged by the veterans and the reconstruction committee will be expected to take this up. DEALS COME BEFORE TERRITORIAL QUESIIONS PARIS, ,.NoVv 2G.-A league of nations is likely to , figure before the peace conference at a very early stage of the proceedings Instead of being relegated to the close, utter the territorial aspirations Of the various powers are settled. Two distincttve points of view have now developed bri this subject. The American view is that the coming congress will not be like the Vienna congress, which devoted itself principally to alraiiging what each power should receive as a result of the Napoleonic upheaval. According to its view, the i>reBent war was based on certain high ideals and was not a struggle for territorial gains.
