Writing here at the ringside while
Billy Miske and Jack Renault are
fighting the delayed semi-Anal and
the tension of the great championship
bout is slowly simmering down,
I can say that I never saw a greater
fighter pound "for pound, than the
Frenchman. As for his courage no
gamer man ever lived. I believe he
could beat any other man than
Dempsey In America, and there were
moments this afternoon when even
grim Jack was nearer to being
knocked out than ever before in his
As for Dempsey. he won because
there is no limit to his grit, courage
and determination and because
I physically there is no other man like
him in the world.
The championship battle was
fought before 90,000 people that filled
the huge bowl-like arena from
the ling to the highest ridge of the
far seat sections.
America was well represented in
that great crowd?the greatest that
ever assembled from all over the
I world for a sporting event. Just
before the bell Gov. Edwards and
Mayor Hague were introduced from
the ring: in ringside boxts sat hundreds
of men famous In America's
political life, with other hundreds
noted in foreign countries.
When Dempsey was introduced
there was a good roupd cheer, but
when Carpentier smilingly stood up
?that most romantic figure of the
ring?the applause was deafening.
Joe Humphries had introduced him
as "the idol of his people and a soldier
Referee Ertle. who had watched ]
every detail of the preliminary ar- j
rangements, first ordered the sec- j
^nds from the ring and then walked j
to a neutral comer and calmly mo- j

The bell clanged. Dempsey andI
Carpentier. ready, moved out swiftly j
to meet at once, and with no preliminary
feeling out. no hesitation
even for a second, the Frenchman
leaped at the American like a ti&er.
his left fist crunched against Jack's
chin; he clinched; Dempsey began
pecking at his body; Carpentier
broke and leaped back, only to
spring back again with a terrific

Carpentier was forcing th? fisrht.
But Dempsey. not to be driven back,
lewered his he?d and came primly
n. his blows were driven home at
ihort range, and at tlmc3 he shot
fits clenched fists through tmall
openings Into the Frenchman's body.
This was his plan of battle?to
wear Carpentier down. In the middle
of the round Carpentier drove a
right squarely against Dempsey's
chin, the- blow would have knocked
out any but a man of Iron. Dempsey's
knees shook, and his faci
turned gray; for a moment even the
grim determination was wiped from
his face: another such blow and he
would go down. But even as Carpentier
drew back his hand Dempsey
recovered and lunged forward,
driving at Carpentier's body so hard
that Georges was forced to give
ground before the attick.
Now came blow on blow, so fast
the eye could hardly follow. Carpentier's
lefts and rights shot home,
and Dempsey clouted grimly in return.

to put every ounce of his strength
