DEMPSEY IS FAVORITE
165 OUT OF 225 VOTES
NEW YORK, June 30. (A. P.)
Dcmprey was ruled the favorite
among 165 sportmen out of the 225 in
terviewed. Fifty eight predicted thr
challenger would win the heavyweight
belt, while a scattering few. including
a noted college track trainer, said they
expected the bout would be about even.
Men declaring for Carpentier gen
erally declined to state out and oui
that the Frenchman is their favorite.
Their general opinion is that if the
bout goes five rounds Carpentier will
outbox the champion for the remaind
er of the contest. A great majority
professed to believe- that Dempsey's
hitting power will bring the buttle ti
a sudden close if he can land.
Only a few predicted Carpentier
would knock out the champion, an'
those demanded long odds. The figh
ers will meet in an 18 foot ring whicl

question as to whether one man speaka

peace conversations with the govern
