JACKSON-WILLS BOUT AT
TRACTS WIDE SPREAD AT
New YorkCity, Aug 7- (Preston
News Service)-Perhaps the most im
portant heavyweight battle of the
year is scheduled to take place here
on August 29, when Harry Wills, the
"Brown Panther of New Orleans."
(and also of New York), and "Tutt"
Jackson, the phenomenal 21-year-old
' Washington Court House, Ohio, sen
sation, meet at Ebbets Field.
Never in the annals of ring history
has a heavyweight fight between
colored fighters assumed the propor
tions, of this match, now practically
assured. The fight is to go 15 rounds,
to a decision, but few persons, who
know the quality of the two men, ex
pect the fight to go the entire dis
Dave Drisscoll straightened things
out with the New York Boxing Com
mission after Paddy Mullins, mana
ger of Wills had expressed his satis
faction over the terms.
Had Been Hanging Fire.
The contest had been hanging fire
for many weeks prior to Wills' sign
ing and McGarney had practically
given up hope when he wrote his
article in the New York Sun which
resulted in a signed document being
sent to Chairman William Muldoon.
The bout looms as the most im
portant heavyweight match since the
Dempsey-Carpentier affair at Boyle's
Harry Wills the acid test?"
and the question now being pro
pounded is "can Tutt Jackson, with
his wonderful knockout record, give
Harrf Wills the acid test?"
There is hardly a question of doubt,
but what the Buckeye youth, with his
natural ability, ranks as the most
formidable opponent of Wills on the
Six feet, TWO inches in height,
weighing close to 200 pounds of sinew
and muscles, he is said to be one of
the hardest hitters in the heavy
weight ranks today, with a phenome
nal reach, and a shifty-almost im
pregnable defense. At least that is
what the men, who have fallen be
fore his ox-like blows, declare.
But "Tutt" is an ever present ex
ample of the theory oft related in
pugilistic circles, that the best de
fense is a good offense.
On the other hand it is generally
conceded that Wills has never been
forced to extend himself to the ut
most ability, and this fight, coming
while the Dempsey-Wills match is
still on the griddle might aid in
crystallizing public sentiment to |
such an extent that Dempsey will be
literally forced into a ring with Wills.
Wills' ability is well known, and
ihs wonderful improbement lately
would seem to give the lie to the
rumor that he has seen his best days.
For b*e it understood that the blows
which felled Norfolk and Clarke
were of the sledge-hammer variety
blows that traveled barely six inches,
yet carried Wills' opponents to dream
MEYER MILL, DUNBARTON AND
On the evening of 2nd. inst, after
a 30 mile drive through the country,
Rev. A. W. Hill found himself at Ned
Branch Baptist Church amidst a host
bf eager waiting people. Rev. G. W.
Cherry, the pastor introduced him to
us and on it goes. The meeting was
already warmed up from a christian
experience.. Seemingly all were full
of spiritual zeal and earnestness. On
Wednesday evening Rev. Hill prend
ed as I thought men seldom do but on
Thursday night he preached to a mix
ed audience both white and black.
He took for his text Phillipians 4-8,
subject, "Prepare for better things."
After a brief preliminary and some
funny remarks that would make one
almost crack his side, Rev. Hill grew
eloquent and at times during his dis
course the audience seemed spell
bound and many cried Amen. He
made plain the friendly relation that
should exist between the races and
Webster couldn't have been more
eloquent than he as he spoke of hon
esty, purity, justice and love. The
crowd was large, orderly and atten
tative. Rev. Hill will not soon be
forgotten in our vicinity and his
wonderful^ sermons and timely re
mark haye made deep impressions on
The Kind and generous whites of
Dunbarton donated $5.02 in the way
of assisting the colored in defraying
the expenses of the revival. For this
many thanks have been tendered.
Rev. G. W. Cherry, the pastor is held
in high esteem by both white and
colored of our section and is doing
much to foster christian sentiment
and bring about a better feeling be
tween the races.
Thc St. Luke Baptist Church is
prospering both spiritually and in
terllectually under the wise leader
ship of Rev. Win. Phinizie. Twenty
two souls were added to the cause of
Christ during this revival last week.

SECOND CALVARY BAPTIST
Our pastor, Dr. H. M. Moore writes
from Chicago University that he is a
real student again at that institution
and that things go well with him.
He asks to be remebered very kindly
to all of his members.
In the absence of the pastor, Dr. R.
W. Baylor is substituting to the satis
faction of every member. While Dr.
Baylor is known state wide as a deep
thinker and an exceptional pulpiteer,
many of the members did not know
that he could "deliver the goods" so
well. He is really feeding his hear
ers with rich spiritual food. If you
doubt the writer come out to Second
Immediately after the morning

on the church.
