COMPLETE RING RECORDS OF
TWO BATTLERS WHO MEET FOR
WORLD'S TITLE ON SATURDAY
(By Anor'.-iti Praia
New York, Junt 30 Veterans of
numerous gory ring battles, will
face each other in the ring when
Jack Dempsey defends his heavy
weight title against the challenge of
Georges Carpentier in the Jersey
City ring, July2. Through several
campaigns, both have won and lost
contegj, in nearly every possible
manner. Both have won by knock
outs, on points and by fouls; both
have lost on points and by knock
outs, althogh Dempsey never has
lost a decision on a foul as did Car
pentier to Frank Klaus, when Man
ager Descanips climbed into the ring
to save the Frenchman from further
Carpentier, fighting since 1!07, is
the more grizzled veteran of the two
In winning his way up from the
bantamweight ranks to the heavy
weight class. Carpentier, who start
ed boxing at 14, has engaged in 85
battles. In 71 of these he emerged
from the ring the victor. Thirty
four times, he won by knockouts; 33
times on point decisions and four
times on fouls by opponents.
The Frenchman has fought only
five draws; has lost once on a foul
and has been knocked out once. To
a French youth named Gloria goes
to credit for being the only opponent
who has stood over the challenger
and listened to the toll of the referee
Carpentier'? record before the war
is one of the most active credited
to a leading boxer. Service in the
French army curtailed his boxing
for four years but since the armis
tice, with a heavyweight title bout
his main consideration, Georges has
engaged in fewer glove contests.
Jack Dempsey has fought 64 bat
tles and 55 resulted in victories for
him. The champion has knocked
out 45 or almost three-fourths of his
opponents ir six years of boxing, a
remarkable record. Nine times, he
has won on point decisions and his
only victory on a foul was over the
ponderous Carl Morris.
The champion has fought four
draw decisions; has lost on points
twice and has hit the canvas only
once to stay there for 10 seconds.
"Fireman" Jim Flynn, in 1917,
achieved that startling feat but later
:the "Pueblo Fireman" was knocked
lout in less than a minute by Demp
sey when the latter was on his way
.to the championship. Dempsey also
has fought two no-decision bouts.

AFTER FIGHT BY SENATORS
(Continued from Page 1)
South Carolina, Overman, of North
Carolina, and Broussard, of Louis
Senators Borah and Johnson were
reported to have centered their at
tack on Mr. Taft's legal training, ex
perience and qualifications. Accord
ing to the reports filtering out from
the senate chamber, Senator Johnson
was said to have declared that Mr.
Taft's appointment was "purely po
litical." A similar charge, it was re
ported, was made by Senator Borah.
Not Regarded as a Lawyer
Senator Johnson 'asserted that Mr.
Taft had not regarded himself as a
lawyer, but as a politician and had
"abandoned" his profession after
leaving the White House.
The defense of Mr. Taft, was led
by Democrats. Senator Underwood
said that Mr. Taft had made himself
"beloved of the south" adding that
this senitment was due largely to Mr
Taft's appointment, when President,
of a southerner, the late Chief Jus
tice White, to the highest judicial
position of the country. Similar
Broussard, of Louisiana, the native
statements were made by Senator
state of the late Chief Justice.
Mr. Taft's legal learning was
praised, it was said, by Senators
Knox arid Willis, the latter referring
to his experience on the bench in
Ohio, Senator Kellogg, referred to
the position of honor held by Mr. Taft
in bar and similar associations.
Southern senators, with exception
of Senator Watson, of Georgai, were
solidly behind the appointment. Sen
ator Smith, of South Carolina, dis
cussed the race question, commending
Mr. Taft, for re?asing to appoint any
but white men to offices in South
Was Taft's Life Ambition
Montreal, June 30. "It has been
the ambition of my life to be chief
justice.", William H. Taft declared
tonight, "but now that it is gratified
I tremble to think whether I can
worthily fill the position and be use
ful to the country."
"I have received telegrams an
nouncing that the President has
nominated me to be chief justice of
the United States and that the sen
ate has at once confirmed the nomi
nation," safdTvIr. Taft in a signed
statement commenting on his ap
pointment. "I am profoundly grateful to the
President for the confidence he has
shown that I can discharge, the im
portant duties of the exalted office.
I sincerely hope and pray that I may
be able to show that his confidence
has not been misplaced. I highly ap
preciated the immediate confirmation
by the senate.
"The argument in the Grand Trunk
arbitration, in which I am one of
the arbitrators, will be concluded
Wednesday July 6, and I expect to
be in Washington on July 7 to take
j the official oath, confer with the at
torney general and to pay my re
spects and thanks, in person, to the
Mr. Taft did not receive the of
Ificial notification of his appointment
until he had returned to his hotel at
the conclusion of the first day of
itho argument of the Grand Trunk
1 arbitration. Immediately on receipt
of this notification Mr. Taft was con
gratulated by his fellow commission
ers on the boarV, and the chairman,
Sir Walter CasSels, gave a small
dinner to celebrate the occasion.
