,Georges ^arpentier Knocks Out
'Battling* Levinsky in the Fourth Round Before 35,000 Right to Jaw Sends Battler Down for Count frenchman Takes Lead With First Gong and Continues to Hold Advantage at All Stages of One-Sided Boiit <Or,t1ni?i?<S from papa ene) credit from the speed, skill and punch? ing power of* the Frenchman, but for sll that, few in the big crowd believed he would have any chance against Dempsey'a grrater ruggedness. Car poatier'J two best blows were a left jab, followed by an overhand right to the jaw, and on each occasion, as he executed these punches, the dreamy iook left his face, and his wild staring eve9 seemed to cover two-thirds of Lis countenance. Speed, skill and power ho proved to the crowd in spite of Levfnsky's leth? argy. But to say that he proved his right to stand on equal terms with ? Dempsey is quite another story. But j it was not his fault that he was unable | to prove more, for the man that he j battered to tho floor was merely aj human punching bag facing the Inevi? table without a struggle.

His quick knockout by Jack Dempsey also was counted agair.3t him, as was his lack of a fii ishing punch. Those who had seen Carpentier in Ms training work-outs were convinced. that the European champion carried a! wicked punch, cue of tnose TNT af? fair?. His quick knockout of Joe Beck? ett, the lumbering British heavyweight, ! Bomt months ago proved that Carpen-' tier knows how to hit. As to whether : the Frenchman could "take it." that was a far more open question. But still, ?f Levinsky could not hand out j punishment, argued Carpentier's sup- ? porters, there was no necessity for Georges to assimilate a heavy beating. 1 That's all of 1 . Georges Beaten Often Carpenticr's most important fights j *cre not always successful. While a j ?iddlewe'.pht he was knocked out by I Billy Pa] ke and Frank Klaus.

Jeavyweight, lost to Carpentier on a ! ?nil in six rounds, after the Gunner | o*d taken a terrific beating from the ! ?lever Frenchman.

You9II Have to Hand It to the Wife By BRIGGS Waterbury Horse First in Feature Race at Jamaica Despite the threatening weather, lovers of horse racing took advantage of the holiday and jammed the course at Jamaica yesterday. What the pro? gram lacked in quantity it made up in quality, and the fact that four first choices came down in front sent the crowd home with something on the right side of the ledger. The October Handicap, the feature event of the afternoon, resulted in a victory for Larry Waterbury's Sen nings Park, the 7 to 10 favorite. M. L. Schwartz's consistent performer, Audacious, was second, and J. E. Widener's old sulkcr, Naturalist, took ' the Short end of the purse. Johnny j Dundee':-. War Mask, the o'nly other \ starter, trailed the field. Seven were originally carded to go, j 1 ut Cirrus, Lord Brighton and Crom- j well dodged the issue. As soon as i the horses took their positions Roy j Dickerson, who is substituting for j Mars Cassidy, sent them away in a i perfect line. When they settled i down to running. Turner took ; Naturalist to the front. Mooney i dropped in behind him with Sennings j Park, with War Mask right at his head. Audacious, under a stout pull, j was right at their heels. There was no change in the posi- ; tions until they started to make the bend out of the back stretch. War Mask had enough, at this point and '? dropped back. Coming into the | stretch Mooney gave Sennings Park ; his head and the colt moved up rapidly, caught Naturalist after get? ting straightened out, and opened up a gap of two lengths. This he main- | ti.ir.ed to to the sixteenth pole, Where Audacious made a strong bid for the ! purse, but Sennings Park haxl enough j left to stave off his challenge and | won by a length an.l a half. The weight began to tell on Naturalist and j he staggered in a like distance be? hind Audacious. The holiday crowd started well when John Sanford's Conine galloped away with the opening race, a six furlong dash for two-year-old fillies. Conine was a well played 7 to 10 favorito, and after waiting in behind Mnvourneen until well in the stretch came on and won as she pleased by two open lengths. Mavourneen had enough speed left, to take the place by the sanie distance from Joan Marie, th?> second choice. Princeton Freshies Score Touchdown on Varsity PRINCETON, N. J., Oct. 12.?For the first time this season the varsity was lined up against Coach Gennert's freshmen, and the yearlings extended the somewhat incomplete iirst team fully. Although the bigger team twice crossed tneir opponents' goal, they were not able to keep from be? ing scored upon themselves and the afternoon's contest ended with the score 14-t?. Cleaves, the young halfback, who did so well in last Saturday's game, was responsible for both of the var? sity tallies, while the freshmen gained theirs by a series of straight line backs from the 20-yard line. ?-.-_. Engineers Win on Court Miss Aileen Riggen, of the Olympic swimming team, threw out the ball to Start the basketball season at the 47th Regiment Armory, Brooklyn, last night. The _7th Mounted Engineers defeated the St. Martin Tours five, 48 to 16. In the three-mile bicycle race, O'Shea, of the Empire City Wheelmen, was the victor, with Wheery, unattached, second, and Matino, United States Infantry, third. Armv Prurtiees in Mud WEST POINT, N. Y., Oct. 12.?Armv took two hours' practice to-day in the mud. The regular gridiron was too wet, so Coach Daly took his men to the North Field. There was no scrim? mage. All the varsity men were out ex? cept French, who is resting. Stro hecker, who is making u fight for the pivotal job, also paced the side lines watching the play, but was'not in togs. He is nursing a sore shoulder. Thomson Resumes Studies HANOVER. N. II., Oct. 12. Earl J. Thomson, captain of the Dartmorth track team and holder of the world's record in the 120-yard and 110-meter hurdles, returned to his studies to-day. Thomson, who represented Canada at the Olympic games at Antwerp, was welcomed with a parade by the entire undergraduate body of Dartmouth. Granfland Rice (Copyright, 1020, New York Tribune Inc.)

Watching Boynton "If you want the name pf one all-Eastern football .star I can slip j it to you now," writes a Williams fan, "Keep your eye on Larry Boynton, the best quarterback in the world to-day." This sounds reasonable enough. Boynton was a leading star last season, and he looks even better this fall. He is a young man who can | take part in any type of play, and having taken part is always making good. lie will have his chance on Saturday against Harvard, and it is better than an even money bet now that he will be the star of the afternoon, Boynton and McMillin Just a week after Boynton plays against Harvard, Bo McMillin, of Center, steps into the same citadel. Last fall, when many selected McMillin, there were many others who | favored the Williams wonder. With the two men working against the same eleven, it will be interesting to see how they make out. One game ; doesn't prove a complete record, but at least it gives an important line on the situation. Meanwhile Harvard, facing Boynton one week and McMillin the next, will at least absorb her share of experience in handling star quarterbacks operating with hostile intent.

Punch in First Round Started Levinsky Out Carpentier Floors American Twice in Second for Count of Eight and Once Sticks Out His Jaw to Take Blow By Fred Hawthorne The men entered the ring at one min? ute of 10 o'clock, Carpentier being the j first to climb through the ropes, The ? French champion was dressed in a ; gray bathrobe, trimmed with black. It was cut on the style of a Japan . kimono. A light gimy cap covered Georges'"? blond head, Levinsky was a couple of minutes later in making his appearance. He looked considerably .heavier than his foeman. A maroon bathrobe was/flung over Levinsky's ehoulders. In the first round they came together ; near the center of the ring, and Car-: pentier was ?the lirst to lead, shooting over a lighthing overhand right to the . jaw. The Frenchman was as quirk as a flash in getting over his punches! In the middle of the round Carpen? tier shook the Battler un with a ter? rific, curling right hock to the side of the jaw. From that moment Levinsky ? looked like a beaten man, and ho seemed to fear a repetition of the blow. In the second round Levinsky went down twice from terrible rights to the jaw, onda in his own correr and once, I on the other side of the ring, These blows traveled so fast that Levinsky,, clever defensive fighter as he is, was unable to guard against them. His legs swayed under him and he slid slowly to the floor. Both times the American took a count of eight. Carpentier Very Cool Carpentier was very cool es he walked back to the center of the ring nnd waited for his victim to regain bis feet. The bell rang before the French- : man could finish the job and the Bat-j tier's second.?; worked so hard over the shaken fighter between rounds that he ' toed the murk for the third round in : good shape. But it was evident to those at the ' ringside that Levinsky was through for the evening. Whatever punching powers he had before he lost on re- I ceiving those deadening blows to the jaw ami Carpentier seemed to realize this, for he walked steadily in against his opponent's attempts to hold him J at a distance. Levinsky fought himself out in this ! round, as though he knew that his only chance lay in slipping over a wild one. But Carpentier shed blows as a duck sheds water. He even stuck out his jaw on one occasion, in an effort to draw the Battler into a lead, and he took the punch square on the point of the jaw without blinking an eye. The boll ending the third round found Levinsky still on his feet but growing steadily weaker. Only his old ring cunning saved him from Carpen tier's attack. The Frenchman showed wildness at this stage as he saw his man going and missed many a hard drive for tho jaw as he tried to shoot over the finishing punch. End Came in Fourth But in tha fourth round th- end came, and quickly. Rushing from his corner and meeting Levinsky i:; the hitter's corner, Carpentier drove those stinging, jarring punches to the hope? less Levinsky's jaw, until the blond Hebrew's head jolted and sagged from side to side. He looked like a drunken man trying to find his way home after a very wet night. Driving his man before him under a furious hail of blows, Carpentier forced Levinsky to the ropes and there pinned him up against the hempen strands while he ripped over rights and lefts to the head. Finally Levinsky began to droop, the ropes half supporting him, and then came to rest on the floor, rolling under the bottom rope and holding out his ? left arm to prevent rolling over on the press stand. Levinsky was not out in reality, and after reaching a sitting position he listened to Harry Ertle, the referee, as the latter shrieked out the count. When Ertle had called "ten," Carpentier rushed over and helped pull his victim into the ring and (inig him to his chair. Immediately after the fight ended Francois Deschamps, Carpentier's man ager, jumped into the ring and rushed from one side to the other, yelling to the newspaper men that "for three ?lays Carpentier he have no lunch! He sick ! No lunch! " These words were accompanied by; gestures by Deschamps indicating that' Carpentier had been sick at his stomach, or some such thing. But Levinsky looked much the sicker of the ' two. And what did the result of the fight ; teach us concerning Carpentier's ability ns a fighter? Only this, in my opinion, that the Frenchman is a wicked puncher, particularly with his right hand. It iv..; the overhand right h'iok to the side of the jaw that finished Le. insky and started him on the road to ruin. The Frenchman also is very quick on \ his feet and always on the alert* for, openings, but as a dangerous opp fur Jack Dempsey, no. Carper.tier leaves himself open far too often. As for the American's h iwing in this ; fight, it was disappointing. .After tak? ing that tir.st jarring clout on the jaw in the opening round, *he Battler bent most of his energies to keeping out of harm's way. In the third round LevLnsky made his best showing-, shooting over a dozen straight left jabs to Carpentier's face as the Frenchman bored ?u eager to trade punches. Hut Geor__e3 made no elFort to dodge these blows. He knew ? that they carried no deadly charge and | all he wanted was the opportunity to I crash over his own crushing right. Frankie Burns Wins Collander and Asher, flyweights, went ; the limit in their six-round bout, with ? Collander, a dynamic little hitter, hav ; ing a bit the better of the fast milling. i Some of his blows to the bodyt would 'have felled a less sturdy youngster ' than the babe, but he was stronj; and ; smiling at the finish. In the second six-round bout Frankie Burn-, the aged Jersey City bantam | weight, and Patsy Johnson, of Trenton, a husky youngstor with a chilled stet I jaw and a nice disposition, entertained tho visitors. Burns might have done better if he had taken off his gloves and swung a sledge hammer at Patsy. Ted Kid Lewis, former welterweight champion, and Marcel Thomas, the French welter, met i:: toe si::-round semi-final, Accordin gto report.', whis? pered at the ringside before the men entered the ring, Lewis had agree?! to I knock Thomas out or receive nothing ' for his services. Ted must be awfully | fond of money, for he u'ent after the ! poor Marcel like a demon. In the I second round he dropped the French j man with a jolting right hook to the jew. Thereafter he gave the- foreigner a cruel beating about the body. Thomas '.vas not ahle to inflict any ; appreciable damage himself, but he ? Burely could toe the mark and accept j punishment like a Spartan. He lasted 'the limit, which was doing very well i aider the ci rcunistai . Carpentier Ready to Take 10 Blows to Land One Smash Broun Says Frenchman Is I Beautiful Fighter to Watch; Methods Recall ; Those Used by Ketchel By Heywood Broun JERSEY CITY BALL PARK, Oct. 12. ?We missed the performance of "The Meanest Man in the World-' last night, but over in Jersey City, ten minutes after the knockout, a fight fan filled tho bill. Battling Levinsky was totter? ing to his dressing room, supported by two seconds, when the fight fan leaned ; out of the lane of watchers and asked: "Say, can he hit. hard, Battler?" A fight fan is a wonder for nssimi lating punishment. All through the ; bout tho fat man next, to ns greeted \ each body blow with a shout of, "Stick it in there, George. II? i.on't like it down there." We wondered ju it what sort of a person i1 might be who did like to bo punched in the stomach. We wondered hew '.lie fat man wouid ?ike it. Hard as Carpentier hit Le? vinsky, it cannot be sai; .'.at. he jarred the fans. It seemed to : - thai he did everything which could be expected of a fighter, but the funs shook ? heads and remarked, "'He won round with Uempsey." Levinsky's head was still on his shoulders and they were not <??<':,. ied. As a matter of fact, Carpentier fought under a terrific handicap. He could not understand a word of th? advice which was shouted to him by the crowd. When somebody yelle?!, "Knock his head off, you frog enter!" Carpentier was not able to profit by the sugges? tion. He just had to go along in his own way. Frenchman a Hard Hitter '?"ne Frenchman is just as tiara a ?lit? ter as anybody has said, but we did not find that he quite liven up to his reputation for calm calculation. Aft< 7 the tremendous *blow which toppled Levinsky in the first rouna he was flurried for a time and Iasned out wildly. 'Fhe fight afforded little line on his defensive abilities. Early in the bout he found that Levinsky could not hurt him, and so he encouraged his opponent to hit. He thrust out his jaw as a fair target and seemed will? ing to take ten or fifteen jalis if only he could land one in return, r'rom his point of view such a trade was entire? ly satisfactory. Car rentier is an inspired hitter. His blows h?.d landed almost before tho spectator had realized that they had started. Of course, the other fighter knows. He may not realize just what it is that has happened, but he knows that it is terrible. Levinsky was as thoroughly knocked out a fighter as we have ever seen. Ten was nothing in his life but a number in a procession which, i . ' have been infinite. It would have keen an unfortunate moment for the Battler if Gabriel had blown his trumpet at that particular moment. Levinsky could could not have come. Carpentier car . ried him to his corner, but it was many minutes later before his seconds took him down from the ring and started for his dressing room. Ho merely shambled along, and would have fallen at every step if the two big men had not held him up. There was about him a suggestion of the Mora Lisa. If Walter Pr.ter had been in a ringside seat he might have said. '.'Here is the head upon which all the punches of the world have corri? an,! the eyelids arc a little weary." Except for the fool fan who asked "Can he hit hard, Battler?" nobody said anything. There didn't seem to be much of any? thing to say. It was a situation which would have defied Pollyanna. Of I course he probably received a pretty penny for his evenin-, but it seemed to us he earned it. We would rather read copy for ten solid years than stand up and let Carpentier bring that swish? ing right of his around upon our chin and throat. Two Blows in Knockout There were two blows which encom? passed the knockout. The first was on the jaw and the second hit the Battler squarely in the throat. He <!^<1 not feel ii. There was anaesthesia in the first punch. Carpentier is a beautiful lighter to watch. We leave it to the experts to say how good he is, as we have suggested the fight showed little (A his defensive ability. He is a marvelously fast and hard puncher. In many respects he fulfills .lie average American's conception of a Frenchman. His hair is at least two months too long. Coining into the ring ho wore a natty raglan and a sport cap. Although he has been knocked out several times there arc no marks for it. Carpentier is just as handsome as the moving pictures said he was. There the resemblance ends. He does not dance or flutter. 'Ineri; is an ab? solute earnestness about him. He su? gests no American lighter so much as Stanley Ketchel. He is a slugger, though a sharpshooter. Seemingly the Battle of Verdun was not enough to kill the old convention American conception of the Frehi The general opinion about the r i . seemed to be thut Levinsky would lust. "Why, this Carpentier's nothing but one of them frog-eaters,'' said the man behind us. But if frogs can put such a kick into the.right hand wallop, there are fighters here who will begin to wide on their own account. Carpen? tier has come a long way since the day in Lens, whsn h?. watched the performance of Deschamps, the travel? ing showman, and wheedled his way into the troupe. He was a juggler fitst ;.i.;l men an acrobat, but now it's his opponents who turn the somersaults. Bantam, feather, lightweight and t'r rough all the e'asses he grew into his present 17_.' pounds. He was a good 1 aviator, too, but lie could have done more to the Germans, we think, with his fists than with bombs. We used to see him at Maxim's, in Paris, and though we knew that he was a lighter it did not seem possible that anybody so good looking could hit so hard. Our otho% hitting heroes, our Ruths and our Dernpsey, are kin to Mr. Tarzan, of the Apes, but here's a man who mi^ht have stepped out of a cloth? ing advertisement who carries destruc? tion in either fist. You can't do the easy thing and speak of cavemen. There's too much polish on his finger nails. Beeeher Seeks T.vo Title?
