Jack No Lon;
Dempsey's Case of "Nen
man Unworried and
Outcome; Odds 01
By ROBERT EDGRBf.
NEW YORK. Saturday morning.
July '2.?At half past three this
afternoon, or shortly after, either
OeorgeS Carpentier of France will
be champion of the world, or Jack
Dempsey of America will still be Invincible
king of the ring.
As the time for the big fight draws
close Carpentier's chances are taken
more seriously because of the intense
confidence in his fighting
powers expressed by visiting foreign
portrpen who have seen him lr.
To a man. the visitors say that ,
Carpentier will whip Dempsey. Not .
that tlMjr know anything about Jack I
?they simply assert that Carpentier
is the greatest fighter they've
ever seen?that his ring strategy is |
Incomparable, his defence perfect, j
his hitting aosolutely accurate and j
bard enousrh to knock out any man j
living, and his strength sufficient j
to his needs. Dempsey, they say. Is
a big fellow, stronger than Carpentier,
a good boxer, a hard hitter.
anything you want to claim for him
?but still inferior to Carpentier.
American ring followers are just
as enthusiastic over Dempsey. They
know he is better than any other
beavyVreight we've had since Jeffries'
best days, and in many ways
better than Jeffries.
_? He may not have Jeff's tremendous
strength and endless stamina,
but he makes jp for that by being
a born fighter, who cares more for
the fighting than for the money he
gets out of it. He may not have
a flashy boxing style, but he is ag^grassive
and effective. He is game,
strong, fast, enduring, and a natural
WRhlei all the way through. He is
"^p6d enotigh for American to conIlfefac
him a three to one favorite
t afr^Tnst any opponent we could name,
domestic or foreign.
The chances are that Dempsey will
win. whether the fight !s short or
long. But it will be a hard conteat.
and no sure thing fc-r either
Dempsey's last few hours at his
Airport camp yesterday were spent
f.^bterfully. He showed no trace of
i nervousness. The nearer the t'mt
f comes to get into the ring the hapH
pier Dempsey is.
I* "^serpen tier's last moments before
the big event were no less tranqt:*'.
H<* sat on his porch at Manhasset.
the training work over, and studiej
bis fight plans. Carpentier has been
tinworried, as far as I could see,
J. ever since he arrived at training
quarters. He ha 3 been through tco
' many'big things to have "nerves"
; over a ring boat.
H#? is calmer than any other man
jt in his* camp. He'll be cold and detcrmirted
when he faces Dempsey
tn th#' ring. Dempsey is noted for
"* bis grim concentration on the fight.

Here we will have two men absolutely
determined to be the one irrest.table
force in attack and the |
immovable body in defense. The
old scientific puiile all over again.
And the only answer to it is thai
one or the other will not be irresistible.
Will it be Dempsey, or
Physically there are advantages
on each side. Dempsey is about
elghten pounds heavier and two
inches taller. I measured Jack last]
week. He has grown three-quarters
of an Inch sine* the WlUaid
fight, and stands just 6 feet lii
inches in his .bare feet. Carpentier
is 5 feet UV Dempseys weight
ttwo days before the bout was 190
pounds. Carpentters. 172.
In build the men are of different
type. Dempsey has a heavy jaw.
a thick, short neck, and a generally
deep, rounded body, well musclec

crood lines of endurance. Carpenter

shoulders are broad and well muscled.
His back is wedge shaped,
with long banks of muscle "tending

the waist. His chest ?nd bod>

looks like a heavyweight, and from
the side more like a lithe middleWDempsey-s
legs are straight lined,
tapering evenly from hip to heei
with no bulging muscles They are
rather light for his powerful torso.
Carpentier's legs are very long from
hip to knee, and are very- short below
the knee. His calves are the
biggest thing about him. with big
bulging muscles. He uses
powerful calves by fighting well op
on his toes. This gives him^added
height if he wants to use It.
Carpentier has a peculiar knack
of hitting, using the long banks of
muscles along his sides to put driving
force into the blow.
Yesterday I had a talk with a
well-known English sportsman who
has spent years in Australia and in
this country, following boxing. He
has seen Dempsey fight and says
that he thinks him one of the best
heavyweights that ever held the
"But Carpentifr has practically an
even chance to win." he said. "I've
seen Carpentier in five fights. His

trains. He never shows anything

fight he is an entirely different man.

He is a well-balanced boxer
with a perfect body defense, shifty
footwork and two good hands. He
has a great left and uses it all the
time, but his right hand is the finisher.
He never lets that right go
unless he Is sure of landing, and
when he lands right he can knock
down any man living. I have a few
dollars that I'm going to bet on the
proposition that if there's a knockdown
in the first round. Carpentier
will land it. He may not keep Demp
sey down, for Dempsey is very rugged.
but I wouldn't be surprised if
he dropped Jack with the first blow
struck. I think he has an even

i and a half of the fourth round. Th?
timekeeper counted nine and the?
rang the bell to announce a knockout,
but through a mix-up Smitf
was allowed to start again. Carpentier

by outlasting him, but there won'!
be much difference between then

NEW YORK, July 1.?Never be- t
ore In pugilistic history has there s
Seen a battle In which opinion was 'n
IO widely divergent as In the flght a
>n Saturday at Jersey City. Dempley
adherents talk as though it was P
a 100-to-l shot. Bernard Shaw, 11
leading the pack of those who be- f
lieve in the superiority of the C
Frenchman, is on record with the 1
statement that Carpentier should be C
a favorite by at least 60 to J. '
The fact of the matter is that no ?
one has any very clear idea of what .
may happen. The majority cer- ,
tainly favor Dempsey to win. but ,
their bollef is not reflected in the t
betting. It was expected that, as
the time of the battle neared. the
odds would lengthen considerably '
and that there would be much bet- !
ting at S to 1 and ? to 1. with ,
Dempsey on the long end. Instead ,
of that, the odds have shortened, t
and nempsey men tonight want to |
give only 2 to 1. Carpentier money ,
at 3 to X is going begging. How i
come? If the Dempsey men are as r
confident as they claim to be, why I
don't they bet as they talk? i
Mystery! That's the answer. <
Mystery and the flood of opinions
that have been printed. Once upon '
a time fighters were judged purely 1
on their physical merits. The war. 1
however, brought the worth of '
morale to the fore. It was demon- '
strated that a physically superior ,
army with an inferior morale was
the loser In physical combat. So '
now the dopesters are figuring, not
only on the weight, speed and physical
condition of the contestants,
but on their morale as well. Morale
is a tough thing to dope. One can
look at a man and tell whether he's
sick or well, but It Is hard to look
at the same man and determine
whether or no his morale is good.

Kearns says?and Kearns has a
| mind that works well in making
| epitomes?that the morrow's contest
will prove as has none other
in thirty years that fighting has

j Fighting's progressed in thirty!
years just as the rest of the world
has. Jack Dempsey today is the
greatest defensive fighter in the!
I world because he's so offensive, if I
he just wanted to use his boxing
ability Instead of his other powers
I don't believe there's anybody on
earth could lay a glove on him."
^And yet Jack Dempsey, by
J Kearns' standards, had no movement
when that nippy promoter
picked him up in '17. "But." says
Kearns, "I could see he was a willing,
game fellow though too dependent
on his right. He'd want
to sock with it because he knew
li that there lay his hitting power.
But I tied his right to his side and
j sicked two kid boxers on to him
I and he got so he could slip and

Not only is he mystified by the <

He reads the statement of

he Frenchman is sure to win beause

values he has only one: Speed.
All the rest belong to Dempsey. J
Dempsey has the weight. He has j
the fighting appearance and temperament.
He has the punch.
But are his eyes reflexed? How
are his reflexes? How is his
mArale? Nobody knows, and. to

One thing is sure. If Carpentier!

All this is valuable as bearing
on tomorrow's plan of battle. Much
has been made of Carpentier's speed
and rightly po. Rut let nont *>f
the well-wishers of the Qaul from
the coal country delude themselves
as to the speed of the lad from the
Western minfs. During the long
period of training?days of which f
followed many?Dempsey was never
more convincing to both laymen and
expert than h*? was the day he took
on Rabe Herman for some extraordinarily
brisk work. Now Rabe
they tell me, is estimated as one
of the most expert of the artful
dodgers in the ring today. Hia
j office was to make Dempsey speed

i weight and a performer at once
flashy and confident. Rut Jack waf

j thing of joy to see. The infant waj
j goint; at his best when Jack toofc
i a chance, whirled completely without
change of foot location and
j delicately planted the blow just ai
) the point of Rabe's chin.
The Dempsey partisans sigh contentedly
and siy "that is the an
