THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON, TUESDAY MOBNING, MAY 1,
With Jack Sharkey
PUT TO SLEEP FAST
" BY AltAN J. GOULD
Associated Press Sports Editor
; MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
:,Tew York, Apr! 30. (AP) After
avlng talked and fiddled bis way
ut of the main Heavyweight pic
ture for this year, Jack Sharkej
uddenly came to life tonight and
. knocked oot Jack Delaney, the one
s ,hne rapier of the north, in one
minute. 13 seconds of the first
'' - .ound.
Snarling and Ticioas, Sharkey
leaped at his lighter foe at the tap
f the gong, had him punch-drunk
'ji 'n less than 30 seconds and on the
floor for the first time, taking the
- 'ouDt"of 10, from as crushing a
'-. right hand uppercut as has landed
: In any ring or on any-aw for sev-
V erai rations.
Delaney Not In It
r , Delaney didn't land a blow and
s;'jnade only a few faint gestures.
. ; The French) Canadian's handsome
features were twisted grotesquely
and he went to one knee from the
effects of the first onslaught of
. bis foe. Wild-eyed and wobbly he
.""struggled to hit ftet, only to go
down heavily from a smashing
right handr. Delaney was able to
stagger up at nine but he was
'out" on his feet. Sharkey lunged
and swung a right uppercut from
. Delaney went down as if hit by
an axe, rolled over and squirmed
In agonized fashion on his face.
: Blood ponred from his mouth and
one ear. They picked , the fallen
boxer up and carried him to his
corner, dead to the, world, while
. the roar of the crowd reverberated
to the rafters.
Sailor Jack Goes Strong
' With nothing particular at
'stake except to regain some pres
tige he had scattered to the
winds in the winter's elimination
tournament, Sharkey fought prob
ably the greatest certainly the
most spectacular bout of his
career. The big Boston sailor, af
ter frittering away In mediocre
exhibitions against Tom Heeney
and Johnny Rlsko his chances of
gofng up the heavyweight scale
during the winter, suddenly has
thowed a return to form. y
But it is to late now to jJoJfciJm

"What a wallop that was,"
said Tex somewhat mourn
fully. as he referred to the final
knockout blow administered to
"I haven't seen anything like it
since Dempsey was at his best, and
old Jack never hit any harder
than Sailor Jack."
As Delaney rolled and turned in
agony on the floor, spectators
feared he was badly injured.
Sharkey himself seemed Jo think
so for his first reaction was to
crv and look fearfully at his vic
tim. The viciousness was quickly
gone, but perhaps Sharkey's tears
also were in memory of a lost
cause, so far as 1928 is concerned

Rain again was responsible for
the cancellation of two athletic
events yesterday. One was the
first Twilight league baseball
game of the season featuring the
Legion ball tossers and the Super
Service players. The season had
already been postponed a week on
account of weather conditions. The
league's opener will now be played
as soon as the weather clears and
the grounds get dry.
The tennis tournament between
the Willamette netters and the
Linfield tennis team, both men and
women's, which was scheduled for
yesterday afternoon was postponed
until Thursday afternoon if weath
er is favorable. Tomorrow the Wil
lamette racket swingers will mi
grate to Portland where they will
meet with the Reed college netters
in the first mix between these two
teams. On Saturday the Bearcats
will again meet the Oregon State
team here. They were defeated by
the Staters at Corvallis last week
but hope to turn the tide in the
If weather permits, the Bearcat
baseball team will tangle with the
Pacific nine on the Willamette di
amond next Saturday afternoon
this being the first conference
game on the home grounds this
season and the second conference
tilt for the university nine.
Willamette has lost every game
this season, which is largely due
to lack of pitchers and a late start
in practice. Last week end they
met defeat at the-hands of the Uni
versity of Oregon nine at Eugene
in two games, the first 10 to 1 and
the second 11 to 1. Now that the
rain is on hand again," it will be
impossible for Coach "Spec" keene
to put his team through any work
outs this week.
nut. aa a .
ine i'acmc team is ratea as a
strong contender for the confer
ence title this year, now leading
the list. The Badgers have several
good pitchers who know how to
handle the ball. As to hitters, they
have the - best in the conference,
and so it looks like another defeat
for the Bearcats.
Therlrst intercollegiate track
meet for the Willamette tracksters
is slated for Saturday when they
will meet the Linfield splkers on
the local athletic grounds, begin
ning at 200 o'clock. In case of
rain, the meet will be held in the
state fair horse show pavilion.
So far the Willamette trackmen
have shown up quite well and
should defeat the visitors. The en
tire squad has been out regularly
for workouts in spite of the" stormy
weather and are now getting into
good condition. Several good men
from last year's team and several
new men will make the Bearcat
tracksters a hard lot to defeat on
the cinder and field.
Tonight at 4 o'clock on Sweet-
land field, the annual inter-class
track meet will be held, according
to Coach Lestle Sparks. This he de
clares will give him an idea as to
the ability of his men. The meet
will probably see Colgan in the
