JACKSON-WILLS BOUT AT
TRACTS WIDE SPREAD AT
New YorkCity, Aug 7.--(Preston
News Service)-Perhaps the most im
portant heavyweight battle of tbe
year is scheduled to take place here
on August 29., when Harry Wills, the
"Brown. Panther of New Orleans,"
(and also of New York), and "Tutt"
Jackson, the phenomenal 21-year-old
Washington Court House, Ohio, sen
sstion, meet at Ebbets Field.
Never in the annals of ring history
has a heavyweight fight between
colored fighters assumed the propor
tions, of this match, now practically
assured. The fight is to go 15 rounds,
to a decision, but few persons, who
know the quality of the two' men, ex
pect the fight to go the entire dis
Dave Drisscoll straightened things
out with the New York Boxing Com
mission after Paddy Mullins, mana
ger of Wills had expressed his satis
faction over the terms.
Had Been Hanging Fire.
The contest had been hanging fire
for many weeks prior to Wills' sign
ing and McGarney had practically
given up hope when he wrote his
article in the New York Sun which
resulted in a signed document being
sent to Chairman William Muldoon.
The bout looms as the most im
portant heavyweight .match since the
Dempsey-Carpentier affair at Boyle's
Harry Wills the acid test?"
and the question now being pro
pounded is "can Tutt Jackson, with
his wonderful knockout record, give
Harri Wills the acid test?"
There is hardly a question of doubt,
but what the Buckeye youth, with his
natural ability, ranks as the most
formidable opponent of Wills on the
Six feet, \wo inches in height,
weighing close to 200 pounds of sinew
and muscles, he is said to be one of
the hardest hitters in the heavy
weight ranks today, with a phenome
nal reach, and a shifty-almost im
pregnable defense. At least that is
what the' men, who have fallen be
fore his ox-like blows, declare.
But "Tutt" is an ever present ex
ample of. the theory oft related in
pugilistic circles, that the best de
fense is a good offense.
On the other hand it is generally
conceded that Wills has never been
forced to extend himself to the ut
most ability, and this fight, coming
while the Dempsey-Wills match is
still on the griddle might , aid in
crystallizing public sentiment to
such an extent that Dempsey will be
literally forced into a ring with Wilks.
Wills' ability is well known, and
ihs wonderful improbement lately
would seem to give the lie tc the
rumor that he has seen his best days.
For bb it understood that the blows
which felled Norfolk and Clarke
were of the sledge-hammer variety
blows that traveled barely six inches,
yet carried Wills' opponents to dream

funny remarks that would make one

eloquent and at times during his dis
course the audience seemed spell
bound and msny cried Amen. He
made plain the friendly relation that
should exist between the races and

? eloquent than he as he spoke of hon

SECOND CALVARY BAPTIST
. Our pastor, Dr. H. M. Moore writes
from Chicago University that he is a
real student again at that institution
and that things go well with him.
He asks to be remebered very kindly
to all of his members. ^
In the absence of the pastor, Dr. R.
W. Baylor is substituting to the satis
faction of every member. While Dr.
Baylor is known state wide as a deep
thinker and an exceptional pulpiteer,
, many of the members did not know
j that he could "deliver the goods" so
j well. He is really feeding his hear
1 ers with rich spiritual food. If you
doubt the writer come out to Second
Calvary Sunday. ?
Immediately after the morning
services communion will be served.
The pastors and members of other
churches are very cordially invited
to come over - and partake of the*
Lord's Supper with us.
The officers and members met just
recently and made arrangements for
some very becoming improvements
on the church.
Mr. I. J. Joseph, our Choirister,
motored to Chicago last week.
