the night of the
Kearns.
- Writing something new about Jack
Dempsey would be like trying to
eq.ua.re the well-known circle. It
can't be done. His history, past,
present and Tuture has been written
and dwelt upon In every civilized sec
tion of the globe. Every fight fan
from Boston to Borneo knows that
not so many years back Jack was
finding it a dlincuic imns io b-ji "j
Win traveling was exclusively on the
a m rt his blanket was the etars.
Probably Jack doesn't liketo be re
minded of theee facts which
historians have-recorded, but
p.rt facts.
Career Is Rraik One-
TVtrmsev's life from his cradle to
today is an open book. Tons of copy
maner have been utilized in extolling
his greatness as a fighter, and he has
freauently been rated as the greatest
eavvweicht that ever drew on
-Rlove. Dempsey's career has not been
nnth of roses. He haa been Desei
ihv many woes and difficulties
Throusra it all he is just a big good
natured overgrown kid that looks
verv Inch the great battler that he is.
Of late flstania has been turned
toDSV turvy over the Dempsey-Car
rentier bout Some months ago each
toxer was to have posted a sum eald
to be $50,006 as a forfeit that they
would go through with the contract
of the match. A week or so ago like
a. bolt from the blue the announce
ment came out of New York that the
ig fight was off. and that the for
felts had not been posted. After
much pro and con Dempsey's forfeit
money was discovered in Jack
Seams' safe in New York.
Kearns Makra Statement.
"The fight has never been off. an
the whole squabble was started by a
person or persons who do not wish to
eee the fight go through," Kearns
declared. "AH those connected with
'the making of the match knew that
my bond was in a safety deposit
vault in New Tork city, and at their
disposal at any time.
"Many wanted to stage a Dempsey
Carpentier match, and when we
Signed with Rickard and his partners
in the venture there were some nat
urally left out in the cold. We signed
for the match in good faith, and are
going through with it in good faith
on July 2.
"Where the match will be held is
entirely problematical. It is prac
tically a surety that it will not be
held in New York. The action of the
New York boxing commission in
passing a rule prohibiting the charge
of more than 1S per seat to even a
championship contest means that a
match between the champion and
Carpentler will have to be held else
where than in the Empire state.
New York Preferred for Match.
"New York .city is the natural site
from every standpoint for the match.
Dempsey . is an American and the
world's champion. He wants to de
fend his title In the United States,
hut the promoters can't cuthe mus
tard with a limited top admission
Jrice of $15. Other cities a? being
slightly considered by Rickard, but of
course there is always the possibility
of another Reno, Toledo or even Ben
ton Harbor, but far-fetched.
"It has practically reverted to
whether the match must either be held
n Canada or England. Canada does
not seem very logical to me, and
there are too many difficulties to
overcome if the match were to be
staged in the dominion,
"England right now has the edge
on getting the match. Charles B.
Cochrane, the English Theatrical mag
nate and boxing promoter, who is
Interested in staging the contest with
Rickard, is eager to stage the go in
xus country.
X Carpentler Favors England.
"Carpentier would rather fight in
England than any spot outside of
France, and Dempsey has no choice
hut to defend hia honors against the
man whom the public deem aa worthy
of a crack at tha championship of
the world."
Dempsey was tired as the result of
tne trip ana retired soon after hit
arrival. The champion had little to
ay except that he is enjoying life,
feeling fine and glad to give the many
Portland fans an opportunity to eee
"Ira in action. Dempsey has been
staying with Jack Kearns' mother in
Oakland. Cat., and had a miniatur
gymnasium installed there. Daily
workouts have kept the titleholder in
good condition.
Dempsey and Kearns have been
cross-examined and questioned so
much regarding Jacks recent match
with Bill Brennan that it Is beginning
to pall on them. Here's the few point
ed remarks Dempsey bad to say on
the subject:
-juooks like i win come In for a
panning every time I fail to stop a
big. tough fellow in a couple of
punches. I wish the fans- would get
away irom this superman idea, and
consider me just a regular fighter
trying to get oy.
Wlllard Match March 17.
Kearns took up the thread of con
versation when asked when Jack will
flght again.
"Dempsey is slated to meet Jess
Wlllard March 17 at Madison Square
parden, and we still understand that
the match is on, and have never had
any reason to believe that it was oft.
The only thing that could cause It to
be put off would be the admission
rrlce regulation, which I have gone
ovtr before. Wlllard evidently didn't
pet enough from Jack at Toledo, and
tr.ey say that be is sincere in the be
lief that he can regain bis lost
crown."
Kearns and Dempsey will probably
return to Los Angeles immediately
jifter Wednesday night's exhibition.
There has been sora9 dickering for
tho champion to box similar exhibi
tions In Seattle, Vancouver and Vic
toria, B. C, but Kearns has not closed
for any of these, and it is' not likely
that ho will, as the money Dempsey

Willard declared he had decided to
make his future home In Hollywood,

"If I didn't think I could win back

Princeton would break the monotony
of training as well as being beneficial
to the menas a tryout. The course
would be for a mile and a half or a
mile and seven-eighths. The latter
distance is the regular course on this
lake.
Reports from the east indicate that
a number of other crews intend to ap
ply for admission into the Pough
keepsie race. If all eventually are
entered and compete, it will be the
greatest number of crews that ever
participated. The Hudson river at
this point is wide enough to accom
modate more than 15 crews without
the slightest crowding. It also has
the advantage of being an ideal spot

BT FRANKLIN B. MORSE.
With the withdrawal of Stanford
university from intercollegiate row
Ins, Pacific cpast eight-oared honors
will be fought out between the Uni
versity of California and the Univer
sity of Washington.
Interest in the sport, however, will
be more than maintained through the
announcement that whichever crew
wins will be taken east to compete In
the Poughkeepsie race June 22. Both
the Washington and California crews
then wiH have a real incentive to put

More than 100 men have turned out

that I will get some word from
Princeton in the next week or ten
days as to whether such a meet would
be feasible. If so, it will be formally
brought to a conclusion between the
rowing authorities of the two institu
tions. Already Wallis has decided, in event
the crew makes the eastern trip, that

to his car in which can be installed a
