Kaplan Is Awarded Decision Over Sullivan in 12-Round Bout at Madison Square Garden
Mauler From Meriden Makes
Fine Showing in ?Local Ring\
Sullivan Send? Visitor to His Knees With Hard
Punch in the First Round, but Is Outpointed
Thereafter; Joe Welling Springs a Surprise
By Jack Lawrence
Loa Kid Kaplan, the Meriden (Conn.) mauler, who came here with
stich a generally terrifying reputation, lived up to his advance press notices
last night in Madison Square Garden, when he won an impressive twelve
round victory over Kid Sullivan, of Brooklyn. The spacious Garden on
this particular occasion was divided about equally between inmates of
Meriden, residents of Brooklyn and native sons of Manhattan Island.
The Merldenites were somewhat non-<
plused and not a little amsred that
the murderous Kaplan did not send the
Brooklynite back to his own borough
on a green shutter immediately after
they had cro.sed gioves in the first
round. The Brooklynites yawned and
said: "Aw, Pepper Martin would have
flattened that ?liveware slugger In a
round." It wiii be recalled that Martin
was to have appeared last night as Kap?
lan's opponent but was prevented from
doing so because of an injured arm.
The native sons of Manhattan didn't
seem to know what it was all about
and amused themselves with thinking
Of other and better scraps they had
eeen in the same ring. The Meridenites
and the Brooklynites mads all the
noise. When Kaplan was finally
awarded the decision several of these
innocents from the provinces nearly
died for joy.
Winning Margin Is Close
Sullivan lost last night's fight in all
fairness, but it was not by any de?
vastating m.Tgin. He was substituting
for Pepper Hertifl and he made a good
job of it, eve.** though the final vote
went against him. Kaplan Isn't such
a ruinous sort of person as ho was
reported to be. but ho is tough enough
at that. He is a slashing, two-fisted
jjhter, who is apparently tireless and
always on the aggressive. Ho handed
the silverware merchants of Meriden
thrills o? frenzied joy last night by
the way he tore into Sullivan and
belted him with fierce drives to the
body and chin,
Sullivan made his best ehowing in
the first round when he ripped across
a hard right that sent the Meriden
mauler spinning to his knees. Kaplan
. ndeavored to make it appear that he
had slipped and bounced to his feet
laughing end rubbing off his gloves.
The jolt hurt him, however. In the
.econd Sullivan held Kaplan even but
in all the succeeding rounds he was
unable to find an answer to the cease?
less onslaught that the Connecticut
.id kept .uoving relentlessly in his
Kaplan's left hand is his main
weapon of offense and it is a mean
K'un. Sullian spent most of the even?
ing trying to i.ecp out of its path.
The Brooklynite .amo back with a yiei
ous counter attack in the eighth round
and roughed Kaplan along the ropes
"under a scries of fierce short arm jabs
to the face and body, but the offen?
sive was short lived.
-Nj^th Ron ml a Hummer
There was more fierce fight'nr. in
the ninth with Sullivan leading the
attack but never accomplihing auy
ihinj? to peak of. The two were in re?
peated clinches and Pat.ey Haley, the
referee had one of the toughest even?
ings of his career.
In the opening bout, of four rounds,
l'ete Zivic, of Pittsburgh, won the de
??ision over Kid Lewis, of Hartford.
i'his was followed by a six-round en
?ounter between Tilby Watson, of Aus
' ralla, and Joe Fri_co. of Brooklyn.
Watson weighed 129 and Frisco 127.
The affair kept the house in an uproar,
??von though the principals knew little
..bout the game. Frisco showed a lot
of aggressiveness in the last round, and
as a result won the decision.
In another six-round affair Lew Pel
Uicio, of Salt Lake City, weighing 127
pounds, won on points over Irving Jam
hole, of the Bronx.

their stuff. The fur was flying from

In Front of The
Chairman Muldoon Is Criti?
cized by Attorney for
Republic Athletic Gub
Former Deputy Attorney General
Samuel A. Beger yesterday, acting as
attorney for the Republic Athletic Club,
withdrew his application for a man?
damus to compel the State Athletic
Commission to issue a transfer of the
license of the club from the Polo
Grounds to the 102d Engineers Armory,
Fort Washington Avenue and West
188th Street. Tho withdrawal was
made because of an executive order is?
sued by Governor Miller November 10
prohibiting the use of state armories
for professional athletics.
In asking to be allowed to withdraw
his application Mr. Berger said:
"While this motion was pending in
this court William Muldoon, chairman
of tho commission, after he bad filed
his answering affidavit to my original
motion, did something that was un?
fair, unusual and in clean sports the
most unsportsmanlike ever seen in my
life. His affidavit admitted everything
claimed in my complaint. Then he
went to Albany and saw the Governor
and the executive order was issued. Ho
did not tell the Governor that tho mat?
ter was then pending in this court.
"His answer was weak and puerile
and then, while the matter was pend?
ing here, he sought to have the regu?
lations changed. I cannot silently
withdraw this motion without express?
ing my opinion that hia action was very
close to contempt of this court."
Deruty Attorney General Robert P.
Beyer, who appeared for the Attorney
General's office, told the court he could
not let Mr. Berger's statement go un?
challenged. He explained that in Janu?
ary last the military regulations were
so arranged that no professional ath?
letics could be presented in state ar?
The regulations were slightly ambig?
uous and at that time the Republic
Club was given a license for the Polo
Grounds. When it askod for a transfer
to the armory the matter was again
taken up and the Governor issued an
order removing the ambiguity from the
original order. Beyer had no knowl?
edge of Muldoon's interview with the
Beyer then said that he had no in?
tention to criticize Governor Miller, as
he was fully convinced from his ac?
quaintanceship with the state Execu?
tive that if he had known that the mat?
ter was in court he would not have
issued the order until the court had de?
cided the matter. Ho still insisted
that Muldoon was opon to criticism,
as he had always been "a proclaimer
of clean sports" and had acted in a
very unsportsmanlike manner.
Justice Marsh then directed the ap?
plication to be marked "withdrawn** on

Greh Arrives in New York;
Anxious to Tackle Dempsey
By Jack Lawrence
Harry lireb blew into the Garden yesterday afternoon to have a
talk with Tex Rickard and Prank Flournoy. It was Harry's first
appearance here since the news of hig break with George Engle, his
manager, disturbed the town a few days ago. Greb, who holds the
American light heavyweight championship, was wearing patches over
both eyes, mementoes of his recent meeting with Captain Bob Roper
in Buffalo. Harrv won that Bcrao. bv the wav.
Greb had a good deal to say anent?"?
his plans for the future and his recent
break with Mr. Engle. He declared un?
equivocally that he regarded himself
as the most logical opponent of Jack
Dempsey, and insisted that he was
ready to meet the heavyweight cham?
pion at any time or place that might
be selected by reliable promoters.
"I can't quite understand all this
talk of a match between Harry Wills
and Jack Dempsey," said Greb.
"Neither can I understand why every?
body should be so crazy about seeing
a Tom Glbbons-Dempcey match. My
record is sufficient proof that I have
knocked over about every heavyweight
in sight, barring Dempsey himself,
and Harry Wills.
"I dofeated Bill Brennan no less than
five times, and I can do it again any
time we start. I've won decisively
over most of the heavle3, and in many
cases I've gone back against them and
repeated tho performance. I've de?
feated Tom Gibbons in every start, and
I've got victories to my credit over
Billy Miskc4. I won the light heavy?
weight championship of this country' j
from Gene Tunney, and I'll beat him
again when we meet in the garden on |
December 29. Charley Weinert is one
of my victims, and the same thing can i
be said for about every other heavy I
and light heavy that I've faced. I I
should think that the public by this
time would be giving me a tumble as I
the one man able to give Jack Dempsey j
the fight of his career.
When he was asked about his break
with George Engle, the light heavy- j
weight champion paid his manager a j
nice social tribute, but declared that
George had failed to provide him with
sufficient work and had not obtained
tho amount of money in recent matches
that Greb thought was coming to him.
He seemed to believe that the severing
o? relations with Englo was merely a
matter of time and was sure to come.
According to statements made by both
Greb and Engle yesterday there seems
to be no cbance whatever of a recon?
"Engle is my idea of a decent and
honest citizen," said Greb, "but he
failed to get me enough work to keep
me busy. After I won the light heavy?
weight championship of the United
States he allowed me to remain idle
when I might have been out making
a lot of money for both of us. I ought
to fight on an average of once in evory
ton days, and nothing like this average
was maintained by Engle. I was
dropped in against n lot of small time
battlers and this seemed to me to be
more of a waste of time than anything
"I am ready to go through with all
the matches that Engle has made for
me, including the one against Gene
Tunney in the Garden on December
29, but my eyes are not in the best
of shape, and if there is any chance
of my eyesight being affected by any
of the fights that have been booked for
me, I shall reserve the right to can?
Offer, Says Manager
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 24.?An offer
of $1,000,000 for a series of three
matches with Jack Dempscy was made
to-night by Al II. Woods, New York
theatrical promotor, to Jack Kearns,
Dempsey's manager, and was condi?
tionally accepted, Kearns, who is in
Memphis, announced to-night.
Dempsey's opponents, the place of
holding the matches, are to be decided
later, Kearns said, although he added
that in a long-distance telephone con?
versation with Wood a mixed match
with "Stranger" Lewis was discussed.
