the proposed' Dempsey-Gibbons
heavyweight champion bout is
fought in Shelby, Mont., on July
4, Tommy -Gibbons, challenger for
the title, will train in Havre, ac
cording i to James Moran, chief
of police here. . ' ;
Chief Moran and Mike - Collins
of , St. Paul, Gibbons ; manager,
held a conference here recently
on the prospective bout and train.
Ing quarters,. Only aj few years
ago Chief Moran was a flight
weigh tV boxer- with ; headquarters
in St, Paul. Two years ago heri
a newly elected mayor decided on
a reform administration, he found
the proprietor of a ranch .near
Havre was an ex-pugilist. A, This
rancher was Jimmy, Mora A and he
accepted the ' post of pollcechief
with the stipulation j that he was
to be given unquestioned auth
ority over the , police tf orce.- ; ;
Recently Moran turned up -with
the knuckles of one hand ban-
daged. His only explanation was
that ,"two fellows In . th railroad
yard thought. I ' couldn't arrest
them." The two fellows, it seems
were mistaken.; y -
So when t Mike Collins went
through Havre to see if the $250,-
000 offered for a bout was real
money or merely conversation, be
was -greeted by his pal, Moran,
and accepted Moran's ; proposal
that : Havre beV made , Gibbons'
