wife: is mystified.
HAVANA, April 6. Jack John
son returned to his rooms almost
immediately after the fight to
day. Aside from a out lip he
was unmarked. He denied him
self to all Interviewers and about
7 o'clock this evening: left hur
riedly in an automobile.
Up to a late hour the searchers
were unable to locate the former
champion. It was reported that
he had gone to the country until
Johnson's household presented
a gloomy appearance. His wife
said she did not know what his
future plans were or where he
Continued From First Page.)
Jeft eye was. partly closed In the early
rounds, but not sufficiently to interfere
-with his fighting. His lip also was cut
inside, and his famous golden smile
flashed from a very red setting.
End Oaaes Spectators.
The end of the fight came with a sud
denness that dazed the spectators. It
followed two or three rounds of almost
complete idleness on the part of the
contestants, and the crowd settled down
to a long drawn-out struggle, believing
that it would go the full limit of the 45
rounds without either being able to
register a knockout.
The early rounds were filled with
flashes of Johnson's former wonderful
eDeed. when he would rain rights and
lefts to Willard's body and face, de
livering teu blows to one of the big
white challenger's. Through all tn.s
time Willard was strictly on the de
fensive, and on occasions Johnson
played with him, once standing with
puai d down and letting Willard swing
at him. only to dodge and laugh at the
awkwardness of his opponent.
Predictions Are Fulfilled.
In many respects. he fight resulted
Ju?t as many predicted, Willard and
lias friends particularly prophesying
that if the battle lasted 2U rounds
Johnson could not win. This was based
jiartly on the belief that Willard could
Ki.m.l all the punishment Johnson could
Inflict, and partly on the doubt as to
Johnson's condition and his ability at
his age to fight a long battle against
the odds of superior neigni, weigui,
Ttach and youth.
Willard aid before entering the ring
that he expected to take a beating for
10 or 15 rounds at the hands of his
faster and more, skilled opponent, ami
in. hal trained to withstand it. As a
matter of fact, he took 20 rounds of
revere punishment, but laughed tne
blows aside and kept up against the
rushes of the negro, who several times
in each of the earlier rounds swept
Willard before him to the ropes. Wil
lard's back showed numerous welts
rai.-ed by the ropes as he fell into them.
Willard Cornea Back for More.
In the rushes Johnson would attack
TYillard in the body and when the lat
tcr's hands and arms came down to
guard that part of his anatomy. John
ton would swing rights and lefts to
the unprotected jaw and face. After
eai-h of these attacks Willard cheer
fully came back for more.
Joiinson's continual grin through
the early rounds began to change to
a look of wonderment as the battle
turned into the twenties, and it was
evident to the spectators when the
negro came to the conclusion that it
was useless for him to try to knock
"out the young Western giant. Johnson
'also seemed to know that he was in
no condition to fight 45 rounds. His
blows lacked the force which sent Jef
fries toppling from the topmost rung
.of the pugilistic ladder at Keno.
H had been the opinion of Johnson
and many -of his friends that he did
not hv to be in the best condition to
whip Willard, under-rating the lat
ter' s splendid condition and youthful
Willard Sometimes Clumsy.
The fight was all Johnson's during
the firet -'0 rounds. Willard only once
or twice taking the aggressive, and
then swinging clumsily and wildly.
Meanwhile his body was growing pink
under the blows that flashed from
In these rounds Willard took a beat
ing which would have put an ordinary
flt-hter down and out. The crowd got
used to seeing him throw off these
slashing blows and expected to see
Johnson do the same thing when Wil
lard swung his right to the negro's
chin in the fatal 26th. They expected
to see Johnson jump up and continue
fighting, just as Willard had come
back, but the old champion knew that
he had fought his last championship
From the 20th round to the final the
fight looked slow and the crowd began
to hoot and ask that Bomebody do
something. There was a single cry of
"fake," but it was not taken up by the
spectators. The reason It looked slow
-was because Johnson, who had been
doing all the fighting, suddenly stopped
and began sparring for time.
it was some time before Willard or
bis seconds realized that Johnson was
through and only needed a blow or two
to send him to pugilistic oblivion.
Black. Keeps I p Chatter.
During the early part of the fight
Johnson carried all his old-time con
fidence and self-assertiveness. He con
stantly bandied words with the spec
tators about the ring and talked steadi
ly at Willard, who heeded the negro's
chatter about as little as he did his
Willard's seconds were bantering
Johnson all the time, warning him to
keep away from Willard's terrific right
It was in the sixteenth round tiiat one
of Willard's seconds shouted: "Jack,
you run into Jess' right; we will pick
you up right over here."
"Be sure you take good care of me,"
It happened that when Johnson went
down for ths-count it was in Willard's

new champion a world of good. To
day he was palpably nervous and at
first was afraid to go at Johnson. He
constantly jabbed or lunged and then
backed away instead of following up an
advantage when it came to him.
Willard Seems Invincible.
It can hardly be said at present that
Willard is a great fighter, but he is a
wonderful specimen of physical man
hood, and is likely to develop an ag
gressivencss and skill that may make
him invincible for years to come.
Willard looked clumsy against John
son. today. A more skillful man might
have knocked Johnson out after the
12th round, for after that the negro
was going on speed and nerve and skill.
Throughout the fight, the Cubans
kept shouting words of encouragement
to Willard, such as "kill the black
bear" and "knock him out. and let us
to home." When one spectator shouted
at Johnson that he was an old man the
neero rcolied "lou just watoh tne old
man," and with that he chased Willard
twice across the ring, knocking his
head first to the right and then to
the left with a series of cross blows.
Through the 21st, ZZd. 23d and 24tn
rounds Johnson hardly struck a blow.
He kept feinting at Willard, who was
ever ready to break ground. When
Johnson finally went down In the 26th
round he rolled over on his back. The
sun was beating down with torrid in
tensity and his arms drew up as though
to shield his eyes from the glare while
the referee counted him out.
Willard ot Burt.
Willard said after the fight that
none of Johnson's blows hurt more
than momentarily, except a slash over
the heart about the 20th round, which
made hira gasp for breath during the
balance of the round. He declared ne
was not sore about the body, but one
of the toes of his left foot was slightly
sprained and swollen from a twist.
Johnson must, have known this, for
constantly during the fight he kept ex
tending his left foot until he could
Just press down on Willard's left toes.
The new champion said tonigni.
"I have no immediate plans for
fights in the future. I am obligated to
the syndicate which promoted the fight
nnri would like to rest at home after
an exhibition tour which I understand
Speaking of the final round that won
him the victory, Willard said:
"Ths Mow that brought the fight to
a quick conclusion was a right-hand
smash to Johnson a DOdy eariy in tne
last round. I felt Johnson grow limp
in the next clinch and knew I had the
championship within reach. A left to
the body and a right smash to the jaw
put Johnson down for the count."
Jobnaoa to Go to France.
The rlav after tomorrow Johnson, his
wife and little group of friends plan
to sail for Mantinique. there to await
passage back to France, where John
son purposes to settle down and lead
the life of a farmer, raising pigs and
chickens. There is no doubt that he is
through with the ring.
Willard is going back to the States I
to win the fortune which was denied
him today, when Johnson got J30.000

Just -what his share was is not known.
There was virtually no big betting
here on the fight. The odds for small
wagers today varied from 8 to 5 to
6 to 5 on the negro.
Setting; Is Picturesque.
"""The settinc: for the big contest could
hardly have been more picturesque. It
was held in Oriental Park, the race
course at Marianao, 12 miles from Ha
vana. This park, in a sort of natural
amphitheater. Is surrounded by verdant
hills, with here and there a towering
palm tree standing sentinel. The ring
was constructed immediately in front
of the grandstand and was surrounded
by temporary boxes and bleachers put
up circus fashion overnight.
The crowd which paid to see the fight
would be difficult to estimate, but it
looked to number between 15,000 and
20.000. In addition, fully 5000 persons
viewed the fight from the distant slopes
and hills. The Cubans, who made up
a large percentnge of the crowd, were
much excited. Many women, both Cu
ban and American, were present, as
well as all the notables in the Island.
Havana Deserted During; Fight.
Havana itself was deserted during
the battle, a half-holiday being de
clared informally. Tonight, however,
the streets and ablaze with lights and
the Cubans are celebrating Willard's
victory. Several thousands of them
blocked the plaza in front of Willard's
quarters at the hotel when the new
champion returned triumphant from
the battle. The police had to clear a
passage through the cheering crowd of
men and women. Willard was wearing
the same old sweater, btie trousers and
folt hat which had become familiar
through his training work on the road.
The demonstration was something
new to Willard. who had been going
quietly about the streets for the last
two weeks, and he grinned like an
embarrassed school boy.
The giant was slapped and mauled
and pelted with flowers as with his
training partners he shoved his way
through the throngs. Once in his
room, he was his quiet self again,
chatting informally as if he had just
returned from a training bout instead
of victor in a chainpionnhip battle.

BT ROSCOE FAWCETT.
This was Billy Jordan's toast to
Jimmy Britt at a banquet in San Fran
cisco just 10 years ago this month, and
it goes for us in the case of the world's
new white heavyweight champion, Jess
Willard. The giant plainsman won his
laurels fairly and squarely so far as
anybody knows and he is doubly en
titled to the plaudits or tne universe
for having wrested it from Jack John
son, unquestionably the greatest heavy
weight fighter the world ever has seen.
Had Johnson been In his prime there
is little doubt but that he would have
defeated Willard with ease. The negro
had it over Willard for 20 rounds, and,
with his old-time endurance and vi
tality, easily could have maintained his
lead to th'e finish, even if unable to
plant a knockout punch. .
So far as we can figure it from the
ringside dispatches Willard was as
slow as ever before; just as awkward
as when he lost to Gunboat Smith. He
had the physique, the stamina, the
staying qualities that nature gave him.
Johnson had not. It was not Willard who
beat Johnson yesterday. Jack had for
gotten more of the method and man
ner of the Queensberry code than Wil
lard will ever know. Old Father Time,

curved meat-ax, put Johnson on the

Thus it has always been in the prize
ring. Take all the champions from the
days of Tom Figg down and you'll find
that the average life o'. the prize ring
champion has been seven years. Once
in a while you'll find an exception to
this axiom. Abe Attell is one. John
son is another. Johnson was champion
only seven years, but he was ripe for
the title seven years before that.
Johnson's case, too, is all the more un
usual in view of the indulgences and
dissipations of so many black gladi
ators. Primrose Path Fall of Blacks.
Nearly all the black champions make
this sort of a sorry finish. Of course,
some of our white boxers have ended
their careers in misery and distress.
With the Ethiopians, the primrose path

too much luxury seem to sap their
vitality. They do not thrive on silk

Local fistic experts expressed sur

Jim Griffin, the well-known referee,
was one of the few San Francisco rin
notables who picked Willard outright
to best the negro. He banked on the
old argument that a man cannot stay
out of athletics any length of time and
still "come back." Griffin predicted
that Johnson would blow up and
counted on Willard's strength and en
durance more than his ring ability to
wear out the negro.
