N. . Y, Commission Places
- Heavyweight ; Champion
- on Ineligible List :
NEW YORK. March 24. Jack
Dempsey, world's heavyweight
boxing champion, today was
placed on the New York state ath
letic commission's ineligible list.
The boxing board : further - de
creed no licensed club matchmak
er, nor "any : official connected
with a licensed club in this state
shall enter into a contract with
or have any negotiations for a
match with any boxer suspended
or declared Ineligible."
The action against DempseV was
taken because of the champion's
failure to" make a satisfactory re
ply to the commission's ultimatum
of March 6, giving him 15 days
in which to accept challenges for
a title match submitted by Harry
Wills, the negro heavyweight. .
A recent letter addressed to the
commission by Jack ' Kearns. as
manager for Dempsey, said Wills'
challenge of three years ago had
been accepted by the champion but
that the commission had ultimate
ly refused to sanction the bout,
was deemed an insufficient reply.
Dempsey was not suspended, it
was said, because he does not hold
any license; hence the declaration
of his ineligibility to box in this
state was the only legal action he
board could take against him. Be
fore the commission met there
were rumors it would declare the
heavyweight title vacant, but such
a step, it was learned, was not
James A. Farley, chairman of
the commission, voted with Wil
liam Muldoon, another member, to
discipline Dempsey in this man

commissioner, w.a not present.

The Inter-mountaln champion

Buster Brandon. He also has
fought an 8-round draw with
Lundy, in Salt Lake, and .won two
20-round matches with' Jimmy

TEXT LAST NIGHT
Third S Meeting of Revival
Work at Jason Lee Church
: Shows Interest
The third meeting of revival
work ' at. Jason Lee Methodist
church last night showed that a
keener Interest was awakening on
the part of the church' member
ship. ! The' turnout was well over
a; hundred, which is very encour
aging. Rev. Atcheson took as his
topic ; "The Sins " of the Elder
Brother," as taken from the scene
of the prodigal son. .The applica
tion of this condition in the lives
of the Christian people was heart
searching, if not to say uncomfort
able. The burden upon the heart
of the pastor as revealed through
the parable, was the privilege of a
son of God and his responsibilities.
How do we feel toward the broth
er who has gone down? How
should we feel ? How did the .fa
ther feel? . . " -- j?,,'
The task - before the r active
church membership this week is
to repair Its ranks In such a way
as to meet every need during the
two following weeks in presenting
the gospel as a living force in life
and a force -which can save and
sustain. Each worker must be a
living example if the work is to
be a success.
The Ladies' Aid was in charge
with the help of the choir and
orchestra. A hearty Invitation is
extended to all who can attend.

nrd not deeply concerned about it,
he" doesn't know how distressing
-lis condition is. Sin puts a man
n a bad fix. JUike a man sinking
in quick sand is the fellow who
fcrgets Christ through his own ein.
" ou can't save yourself any more
,-han a man can pull himself out

"hat Jesus Christ tells you, you
sever can be saved," continued
lr. Poling. . . : '
"You are badly fooled if you;

-ever was a man so good that he
ould get to heaven without Jesus
Christ, nor a man so low down but
what Jesus Christ could and
wuuid save him."
- lie;e Mr. Poling related a most
touching incident in his past
evangelistic work of a man who
thought God never could forgive
iUm. The man had thought him
ir a most impenitent and hope
less sinner. He evidently had
diagnosed his case correctly, lent
this laan who in his past life had
been a useless human wreck,
found .forgiveness through Jesus
Christ and, became almost valu
able man in the church as a soul
winner for Christ.
Despite the fact that Mr. Poling
is comparatively a young man, his
wide experience as an able preach
er throughout America and as a
chaplain overseas in the late war,
furnishes him with many striking
and gripping illustrations. His
large audiences indicate that ' his
sermons are full of live truth.
Tonight, the answer to "What

continued at the First Presbyter
