ChamDlOn IS Rapped Hard by

Tate Again Under Fire In
Dempsey Camp, Bnt Most of
Trainers Have Respite.
(Copyright by the New York World. Pub
lished by Arrangement.)
TOLEDO, O., June 24. Jess Willard
came back to the races today after his
Monday loaf and he felt so good that
he was up on his toes and dancing
about like a lightweight. Jess skimmed
through ten rounds with his men, and
though he was blowing a bit at the
end, ha seemed pretty sure of himselft
In the main, he backed away and did
world of blocking. He blocked pretty
nearly everything that came his way.
except perhaps the spiteful little raps
that Joe Chip gave him. Chip is the
life of the Willard camp when It comes
to the sparring trials. Willard seems
to enjoy the honest-to-goodness ate
tempts of this little fellow to hurt the
wearer of the crown.
M illard lavltes Hard Knocks.
Once Willard had him in a tremen
dous bunny hug. Women in the front
row were admonished: "Ladies, you
must not laugh when the champion is
being drawn and quartered." But the
women laughed loud and long. Willard
had no laugh in the last round, how
ever, for spunky little Chip struck with
right-hander at close quarters and
hit the king on the head so hard that
the blood came with a tiny drizzle from
bis always open mouth.
Willard Insisted on the hardening
process today and allowed his hired
help free swings. For instance, when
he boxed Steamboat Bill Scott he told
the fistic navigator to whale away at
his stomach. Bill certainly did, ana
held Jess with both hands until he was
groggy himself. He gave one more
mighty poke at Willard and then
stepped back to watch the champion
topple. Jess didn't tip over, but only
invited Bill to continue the belaying.
Willard got around on his pins with
the grace of a bantam for the first
few rounds. He began to lag toward
the end, and was puffing after seven
Willard Is Criticised.
John J. Ryan saw Jess box today.
Ryan is an owner of horses and fast
motor boats and knows something
about fighting.
Jess had gone ajong about five or six
rounds with Chip when Ryan up and
said, "I'll bet Jess goes for the water
bottle." The champion did and then
Ryan gave some more expert advice:
Watch him take a swig. That fellow
isn't right. I'll bet a case of -champagne
that he won't be able to expel the water
after he has rolled It around his mouth."
Jess did just the things that Ryan said
he would do. "That's from lack of tip
top condition, lie s got a Dale 01 cotton
in his mouth as big as a push ball,"
added Ryan. "He's clogged and fatty
clean down to his collar bones. A man
isn't right when he acts like that."
"Go over to the Dempsey camp, what
do you find there never a bottle of
water," said John J. Ryan, with the
air of a man who pretends to know.
Because of Willard's great height he
has asked the ring builders to make
the top ropes just four feet four inches.
Jess must be counting on Dempsey
crowding a bit. Jess likes to lean back
on the ropes and with his length and
great weight it is necessary for him to
have all the bracing that the ring law
allows. -Dempsey
Sparrera Get Respite.
Bill Tate was the first under fire in
the Dempsey camp today. Tate wasn't
handled as roughly today. All the help
mates came in for a sort of a respite
from hard knocks. This was evident in
his bout with Jack Malone, the St. Faul
Wltfc Kid Lively.
Malone is a fast little fellow and
Dempsey got right down to the busi
ness of outboxing the little fellow if
he could. Dempsey made a splendid
showing in the matter of sheer science
Reasok Of It s 1.1
He kept working full force, but called
on Malone to rip and tear, which order
was fully carried out- The best fight
of the day in the Dempsey camp was
the bout between the challenger and
Jamaica Kid. Kid is clever and Demp
sey tries with might and main to out
guess him. They exchange no love
taps and it is a real go while they are
at it. Perhaps the hardest punching
Dempsey engaged In was during the
last round with Bill Tate. He caught
Bill several hard ones that made the
lanky darkey hang on for dear life.
Once Bill got a terrific shot against
the side of the head and he reached out
and took the challenger into a close
clutch "until his head had cleared. .
Tex RIckard, Jack Welch and Billy
Brown Suggested.
TOLEDO, O., June 24. Tex RIckard,
promoter of the heavyweight cham
pionship contest between Willard and
Dempsey July 4, tonight met Jack
Kearns, manager of the challenger.
and officials of the army, navy and
civilian board of boxing control in an
effort to solve the problem of selecting
a referee.
Willard did not -attend the confer
ence, but arranged to meet Promoter
RIckard tomorrow.
Included in the list of officials sub
mitted by Kearns as acceptable to
Dempsey were Bill Brown of New
York; Jack Welch, San Francisco; Ollie
Pecord, Toledo; Jim Griffin of San
Francisco; Kid McPartland of New
York; Jack Skelly of Yonkers, N. Y.;
Walter Kelly of Buffalo, and Billy
Roche of New York.
W. A. -Gavin, a member of the exe
cutive committee of the board, and
Adam Empie, secretary, profess to be
lieve the situation is not a serious one
and that the question, will be settled
within two or three days.
Various reports were current tonight
that Willard had declared that he
would accept RIckard as referee and
no one else. Another report was that
Kearns would insist upon either Jack
Welch of San Francisco, or Billy Brown
of New York. Willard is opposed to
the plan of having two judges in ad
dition to a referee.
