These four studies of Jack Dempsey,:' now training for his comeback battle with Jack Sharkey, show
the four main essentials in conditioning, outside o' getting into physical trim. Months of idleness
away'from active combat spoil a fighter's judge of distance, the timing of his blows, the "snap" or power
of his punches and cut the resiliency and spring in his legs. He must perfect these again to be in top form.

It seems doubtful tliat Leo' P.

is, will make a "clever" fighter
out of Jack Dempsey in the short
space of a few weeks.

Sharkey is shattering a few pre
cedents by not settling down to the
serious business of training until
two weeks before the battle, and
also in choosing indoor! ground,
far from the calm of the country
side for his conditioning.
Sharkey has been in fighting
trim most of the winter and
spring, where Dempsey has been
out of the ring since September.
The ex-gob has less excess pound
age to work off.
Sharkey has always trained In
doors for his outdoor, fgihts. His
explanation is that it gives him ad
ed vigor when he steps into the
open air for the battle.
The swimming tank at the
YMCA, already one of the most
popular places in town among the
young 'folks, and many of the,
old folks as well, will have an
added attraction in the near fu

last Olympic meet, has recently
returned to his home in Salem,
and will soon give a series of
swimming and diving exhibitions
in the local tank.
That the tank is popular is evi
denced by the fact that every day
the classes conducted by Harvey
Brock, swimming instructor, are
full to capacity. Several have had
to be divided to accommodate all
those applying for admission.
Pete Jensen, former swimming
instructor at Spokane, Wash., is
assisting in the swimming work at
the Y during the summer months,
giving special classes in life sav
ing several nights each week.
The total number of admissions
to the tank during the month of
