JACK DEMPSEY PUTS LEVINSKY AWAY
:1N THREE ROUNDS OF HARD BATTLING
; .PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 7. A right and a left to the jaw and down
Jfijt Battling: Levinsky for the full count for the first time in his long
career. He had gone to the wel! once too often. He had essayed to
measure his crafty boxing skill against the sturdy youth and batterin
ability of Jack Dempsey, the Colorado Catamount, before a packed house
at the Olympia. He had failed ingloriously. Referee Jimmy Dougherty
might have counted a thousand, for all it mattered to Levinsky.
Th pleasant smile of
Levinsky contrasted strongly with the
Kofi of the black-haired and black-ty-d
Dempsey. Levinsky kept his
cmile until the third round. Then it
changed to & stare of surprise, for his
end was near. He suddenly realized
that he could not weather the storm

a fusillade of rights and lefts to the

Dempsey followed this up with

This has not "happened lrf thirteen years, and so the class of 1905 Jn each
institution plana big celebrations. It is a good thing to see Michigan and
Chicago mingling once more on the football field. Such old rivals should
never have broken. It is always-saddening to see universities playing
baby and severing relations.
Bitter rivalry is a good tbuing In
