Purcly Personal
WALTER JOHNSON, Washington's great piteher. is eomplete proof
of what form means in sport. Others can at times get by without it
through a native knack, but they can rarely last over the long route.
Johnson. using terrific speed, has lastcd sixteen years, because his pitching
motion was perfect rhythm, with no jerk or strain, tho last word iri top
form as form is used in this connection?which means the easicst way to
<!o a thing correctly. And Johnson isn't through yet by a number of strikc
outs and hops to his fast one.
JPJSSE GUILFORD. amateur golf champion. happens to havc the
throe essentials for fine putting?an unemotional nature, a firm, unmoved
body under the test and a keen touch with the finger*. There isn't even a
quiver to Guilford's body as he hits and putts. His dexterity with the
hands is shown in certain carvings he has made of miniature objects, call?
ing for rare delicacy of touch. Only Travcrs and Travis have had this
to any greater extent.
BILL ROPER, of Princeton, is authority for the statement that things
1 can look entirely too well in advance. Last winter, at this time, Roper
j seemed to have enough fctar material to build up two winning teams, only
| to find the mental attitude of his squad badly adjusted in the early fall,
! with this followed by a 6eries of unkempt blows from Fate. Now Bill says
' his squad will understand in advance that only hard work and hard train?
ing will get anywhere, and there will be a better chance to get somewhere.
: The hardest thing in the world is to keep the right sort of mental atti
j tude, meaning grim determination, with too many things look ing all
, your way.
CONNIE MACK is wonderlng now what single club hc can beat out
I this next season to keep from ckidding again into last place. Seven years
i at thc bottom is bad enough, without cracking any more records. Mack's
| case is thc most remarkable in the history of sport. In 1914 he stood out
; as the greatest manager of them all, with six pennant winners and three
world championships. He was the sole mandarin to stand beyond McGraw,
of the Giants. To have this amazing record followed by seven years of
eomplete failure, seven years at the bottota of the list, only goes to show
how quickly the tide can turn at tiaes if you let it get under much head
way. The hardest thing in the world to stop is a quick descent that has
attained a certain impetus. If seven years of failure could attack Connie
Mack, only think of what might happen to an ordinary mortal. Proving
again that more than one great ball club has made a great manager.
"KIG" CLARKE was catching for Atlanta in 1903. He came into
the league with one of the greatest throwing arms any catcher has ever
carried into battle. "Nig" went to Cleveland around 1905 and he led the
league a year or so later. Since that early start Clarke has been pegging
them on a line to second for nearly ninetcen years, missing only his period
of service with the marines during the war. Hc writes us now that his
arm is as good as ever. "ln all that time, between 1903 and 1922, T have
never had a sore arm, and," he adds, "if t.here is any difference from nine?
tcen years ago I can't tell where it is." This at least is close to the record
for durability. Clarke had a low snap throw, much after the manner of
Jimmie Archer. And it might be mentioned that before playing with
Atlanta he had served two years in the Texas League. extending his period
of durable service that much longer.
A.LONZO STAGG made a point last fall at Princeton oi' proving that
the West doe?n't ahvays go in for a wild forward passing game and that
\ it can show something in the way of defense. Stagg believes the Western
dofensc is as strong as any in the country. In the same way. Coach Yost
; uf Michigan is conlident that he had a dovi.sive machine that could hold
! any type of attack pretty well in hand. Notre Dame's defense. was cer
? tainly stanch enough and so was Nebraska's. W. and J. probably had the
strongest defense in the Kast, if not in the country. There. was no other
. machine that blocked the road so consistently in its important games.
CAR.L MAYS has two hobbies. outside of pitching. which with him I
is a hobby as well as a business. One is hunting and the other is golf.
< Maya is a tine shot and a greatly improi- i golf player over a year ago.
In all three sports he has a mixture of unruffled poise and determination I
that carries a long way. Upsetting Mays is much like pushing over one of j
! the pyramids. It can be done, but with no Boft, easy-going shove.

Dempsey and Carpentier Bout
May Be Worked Up for London
Kearns Claims There Is Great Demand in England
tor Chainpion's Services; Possibility of Meeting
With Wills Donbted; Miske vs. Renanlt To-night
By Jack Lawrence
Jack Dempsey will fight Georges Carpentier in London in the late sum?
mer or early fall of thifs year unless plans now well under way should
eneountcr some entirely unfore^ecn obstacle and bc abandoned. The j
heavyweight champion of tho world, according to a statement made to !
the writer last night by Jack Kearns, his manager, will sail for Europe j
in the spring and engage in a theatrical tour which is already being j
arranged. When this tour is completed he will go into training for j
his second meeting with the famous Frcnchman.
Kearns reiterated the statement made
to The Tribune on Wednesday night
that Dempsey would call off his pro?
posed European Invasion if a suitable
opponent could be found for him in
this country. By "suitable opponent"
thc manager said he meant som*
heavyweight with sufficient prestige to
create a real public demand for a
championship battle. Kearns stated
frankly that he didn't believe such an
opponent would be found in the near
"There is a far greater demand tor
Dempsey's services in England than
there ia here," said Kearns. "Jn Eng?
land there is a natural desire to see
thc man who defeated the fighter who
has been knocking over all their cham?
pions. Another Dempsey-Carpentior
hattle would undoubtedly draw better
in London than anywhere else in the
world. Unless the situation In thls
country should undergo a great change
within thc ne_t month we'll certainly
bc sailing away from here in tbe early
Wills Match Difficnltics
The manager of the champion doubts
very seriously the possibility of a
match being arranged with Harry
Wills, the giant negro. He doesn't draw
the color line, but fears the many dlffi
culties that might arise in making
such a match. He is also very far from
beine convinced that there is any real
public demand for a Wills-Dempsey
There is a strong possibility that
Wills and Kid Norfolk, another colored
heavyweight, will be matched for a
fifteen-round bout in Madison Square
Garden on March 2. Articles for such
a battle may be signed a3 soon as Leo
P. Flynn, manager of Norfolk, returns
from Providence. Reports that the men
had been definitely matched were de?
nied at the Garden last night, although
it was admitted that there was a likeli
hood that they would be in the very
near future.
In Broadway boxing clreles yesterday
it seemed to be the consensus of opin?
ion that, while a Dempsey-Wills title
scrap could be carried through to
financial success, there would be con
siderable difneulty in finding a place in
which to hold it. There is no chance
whatever that it could be staged in this
state and the possibilities of holding
it near enough to this city to take ad
vantage of New York money were con?
sidered to be exceedingly rcmote. It
is possible that it might be held in
New Jersey, but not entirely probable.
It was pointed out that the announce?
ment that the two had been matched
would precipitate activities on the part
of reformers which would make the
protests whieh preceded the Dempsey
Carpentier fight appear trifling.
Dempsey's Proposed Trip
Papers covering the details of Demp?
sey's proposed trip abroad are now on
their way across tne ocean and are ex?
pected here early next week. Jack
Kearns intimated last night that after
he receives them he will have a definite
statement to give out concerning the
champion's immediate future.
A number of good bouts are on the
card for to-night. At the Rink Sport?
ing Club, Brooklyn, Jack Renault,
heavyweight champion of Canada and
one of the men who helped prepare
Jack Dempsey for the Carpentier bat?
tle, will meet Billy Miske, the St. Paul
veteran. They are scheduled to go
fifteen rounds. Both have been train

ing hard for this contest, rs thc win
ner has been promiscd a match with
Gene Tunney, American lightweight
champion. Miske seems to have some
idea of securing another bout with
Jack Dempsey, whom he. has already
met three times. On the last occasion
the champion put Billy to slcep.
Renault made a rather favorable
impression on the occasion of hia Iast
appearance here. His opponent waa Al
Reich and the fight took place at Madi?
son Square Garden. Renault, although
floored in the first round, was awarded
the decision. Three bouts of ten,
eight and six rounds respectively pre
cede the Miske-Renault affair.
Abey Goldstein, Willie Lewis's rapid
fire bantamweight, will endeavor to do
his stuff this evening in the star bout
of the Commonwealth Sporting Club's
weekly show. If he performs as well
as he has in his last three engagements
hia opponent to-night will find the go
ing very tough indeed. Abey will cross I
mita with Frankie Curry, the little
Irish battler from the gas house dis?
Goldstein has improved wonderfully
since Lewis took him in hand and he
seems to be in a fair way to make a I
lot of trouble for the boys who are
hovering about the top of the bantam?
weight division. In Curry. however.
Abe is picking no easy mark, and the ,
fight should be a whizz-bang affair
from the first gong to the. last. In the '
semi-final Tommy McAleer, hard-hit
ting West Side welterweight. will try
to outslug Jimmy Gray, the tough
Harlem youngster.
Freddie Reese, Brooklyn's junior
lightweight contender, will meet Willie
Thompson, of Greenpoint, in thc star
bout at the Ridgewood Grove Sporting
Club to-night. Two other twelve
round bouts will precede this affair.
