AT TILEDO CAMPSI
By tH. C. HAMILTON i
(United Press Staff Correspondent.):'
Toledo, 0., July 2.-Training came'
to an end today in the camps of Jess W
Willard and Jack Demsey, he'vy
weights scheduled to battle Friday l
afternoon for the world's .champion
Toledo itself had settled to a period
of watchful waiting. The massive
arena, built within a hundred yards
of a lagoon where Toledo has its
yacht club, was finished. Bare yellow;
lumber--1,750,000 feet of it--stands
out in the center of Bayview park,l
a glaring octagon, laced in and out
with heavy timbers to keel it steadyi
under the weight of the enormous;
throng expected to witness the bout. !
It is practically a duplicate of the
arena Tex Rickard built at Reno,:
Nev., when he staged the mill be
tween James J. Jeffries, then the'
heavyweight champion, and Jackl
Johnson. It will hold many more peo
ple, but the architect, James J. Mc
Loughlin of San Francisco, built it
to conform to the standards he laid
ddwn when he built the Reno struc
Toledo's transportation system
probably will be sorely taxed to care
for the great number of persons ex
pected for the 12-round contest. A
single street car line runs from the
city past the park and, while the
cars are large and commodious, they
cannot hope to battle the gang that
will make its descent on them Fri
day. Taxicabs are numerousn but
even these will not be equal to car
ing for the crowd. Many probably
will walk from the city, a distance of
about six miles from the downtown
Hotels here for some time have been
sold out. Outrageous prices for hotel
roonls have been charged in many
instances. Profiteering, however, al
ways goes with big sporting events.
The average fall of any sport has be
come so used to it that his old-time
howls have grown to be tmore 1llr .i
There has been little effort toi
discourage ticket speculation. Many'
New Yorkers of the blreed that makes
its living by charging huge prices for
admission tickets to big events have
been on the ground for sonme weeks,
buying upil as many of the pasteboards
as they could get their hands on.
These have been offered to the pub
lic in many ways.
So many seats have been provided
that it probably will be possible for
everyone who cares to bity a. seat
from the promoters, but the choisest
places, with the exception of those
disposed of by the promoters, to in
dividuals, are in the hands of the
speculators and long prices were be
ing asked today for them.
Dempsey and Willard locked the
gates to their camps today and set
tied down to rest and eat prior to the
big test. No one was allowed within
the silent enclosures where the glad
iators were girding themselves. Each
was busily making up for lost time
in eating of meat and other strength
ening foods. The drying-out process
having ended, the fighters are now
taking on weight.
A great deal of propagandta regard
ing Willard's weight has been dis
tributed, buat he probably will enter
the ring, weighing more than 24 t
pounds. It would not be surprising
if Demnpsey's weight were announced
as high as 205, a great thing for him
if he can accomplish that without
O ......... .-----. O
May I not express deep gratifica
tion that the "No Beer, No Work"
:logan has not been adoprtd by J.
W. and J. D.?
The Ring Will be a Punch Hoikl.
Don't forget one important fact
in connection with the big fight at
Toledo. Willard is the champion
and he is going to defend his title
by fighting on the defensive in the
early rounds. He will set himself
and wait for Dempsey's rushes. He
will meet Ihem either by clinching
or driving home short uppercuts of
;straight blows. Willard always has
been cool headed and deliberate in
"his methods. Dempsey is a hard hit
ter, but so is Willard, and you can
bet that the champion will be on the
lookout for Jack's wallops. Demnp
sey couldn't stop Miske in ten rounas
no what can he do with Willard in
twelve? It will be no surprise if
the big bout goes the limit and the
referee's decision is a draw. Demp
sey has knocked out a lot of ruts.
but when Willard hits him on the
jaw he may decide to slow tip in at
tack. Nothing is sure in a ring bat
tle when both principals tan punch.

Fourteen Years. Since Hart and Root
Battled for "Title."
It will be just fourteen years
tomorrow since Marvin Hart and
Jack Root battled for the so
called heavyweight championship
of the world at Reno, Nevada.
On that occasion, it will be remem
bered, Jim Jeffries presided as ref
eree and presented his title, whichll
he had -relinquishled because theme
was no good man left to meet him,
to Marvin Hart, who knocked Ioot
out in the twelfth round. The box
ing fans did not take Hart's victory I
over hoot very seriously, and the
Kentuckian did not get mucih nour
ishmcnt or applause from tihe pos
session of the "title."
Marvin Hart was bornl near Louis
ville, and was 28 years old at the
time he became "ehampion." As a
middle-weight he iad knocked out t
Tomnmy West, .Dan Creedon, Billy
Stift, Kid Carter and other good men !
i and shortly before fighting Root he I
had won the distinction of beating
Jack Johnson in a 20-round contest
in San Francisco. Jack Root, lu, i
opponent, was a Bohemlliani of about i
the same age as Hart, but somewhatll
smaller and lighter. He had defeat- t
ed Hart inlti2, end also outpointedi
r Kid McCoy and otlher stars of the
;imiddleweight and light heavyweight
division. Up to the time he fought
Hart, the only moan who had ever de
cisively defeated Root \vas George
Gardner, who knocked Root out at I
Salt Lake City in 1902. and repeated
c the trick at Fort Erie in 190:;. The
following year Root d1.efalted (laid

either to fight for the vacant chaiit

dian, also contested liart's right to
the icrown. After defeating Pat Cal
Slahan at Butte, Hart consented to
t meet Burns, and in February, 1906,
lihe lost his "title" to the Canadianii

Washington, July 1. "Retreat?
This famous \lnerieanl reply to at
French order when Am,'rictans moved
into the Chateau-Il oITurr sector 'or
their test of fire, has at l:st been very
clearly traced to a ImaLritne captain.
It was stated ;ut:iorliatively to

A French division. exhausted by
days of tlesperate fighting against
the relentless (German advalnce, was
withdrawing down shell-torn roads
aroundl Chateau-Thie''lirry past the re

Captain WVilliam's comnlpany of the

of the French. They were taking for

A French major, mioving with his
battalion a long the dark road anlld
believing a general withdrawal had
been ordowed, told Williams to follow.
"Retreat? ' the American asked.
\Williamls reported the incident to
his battalion commander, ('Colonel

they saw it, was:
