CHICAGO, Sept. 27. (AP
The controversial seventh round Of
the Tunney-Dempsey fight, which
found Gene down and the title al
most in Jack's hands, nearly
passed without being officially re
corded by the all-seeing slow mo
tion picture.
On a shaky platform, high above
the heads of the crowd and some
fifty feet away from the ring, La
roy Phelps had his difficulties
filming the fight for Tex Rickard.
One of his slow motion cameras
went out of commission because of
the cramped position in which he
was forced to erect it. With the
sixth round well under way,, he
glanced at the other machine and
saw a lense missing. It had
dropped out.
Hardly any two lenses of motion
picture cameras are alike but he
frantically seized the correspond
ing piece in the disabled camera,
hammered it in with his fist "and
prayed it would focus."
It did, not perfectly, but suffi
ciently to catch the blow ;hat
floored the champion and almost
cost him his crown.

Det With Minister Makes Regular
Attendant at Service
27. (AP) At least one regular
church attendant has been made
as a result of Gene Tunney's vic
tory over Jack Dempsey.
Rev. Samuel Sutcliffe, pastor of
St. Mark's Episcopal church here,
expected the marine to win. Har
ry Blews, proprietor of a refresh
ment parlor, expected Dempsey to
win. So an agreement was reach
ed. If Dempsey won, the minister
was to spend at least five cents
each day for 365 days in the re
freshment parlor, while if Tun
ney won, Blews was to attend Mr.

27. (AP) Damage to the pro
peller blade received in taking off
tu considered a likely explana
tion of the cause of the crash of
the Lufthansa plane near here
Friday in which Baron Ago Ton
Maltzan, German ambassador to
the United States and five others
were killed, by a group of tech
nical experts who examined the
wreckage here today.
It has been tablished defin
itely that, engine trouble was not
the cause of the disaster, the ex
perts reported. In advancing the
theory that the propeller had been
damaged when, the plane left the
ground at Leipzig, they said the
damage might have extended to
the body of the machine which
would have explained the break
ing of the wing afterward. One
stay of the right wing became de
tached and pierced the wing, ad
mitting air thus causing another
stay to snap. At all events both
stays hung down when the crash
occurred atter the machine had
turned over twice.
This is regarded as only a pre
liminary conclusion, however,
rendering an exhaustive inspec
tion of the remnants of the mach
ine at the Aldershot testsing sta
tion near Berlin to which they
were taken.
That the occupants of the plane
realized "something was amiss be
fore the crash occurred, was seen
in the position of the body of Ru
dolph Roell, German railway
clerk, which Indicated he appar

machine at the last moment.
