With ten promoters In remoto parts
of tho world cabling offers of huge sums
tor a Dempsey-Carpcntler twut. and
two of them claiming to havo secured tho
pugilistic prize, tlio" roped square match
of tho century assuredly has reached an
acute stage. In all tho confusion of
claims and counter claims, tho ono fact
that stands out in bold relief Is that
Charles B. Cochran, tho London pro
moter, Is the only one who can prodtico
a contract signed by Carpentlcr nnd his
manager, DeBcainps, This has been ad
mitted by the French boxer.
The latest incident Is tho declaration
by William Fo.- of this city that Car.
render has cabled an acceptance of his
offer, and that a representative of Jir.
Fox now Is on the way to Paris to got
tho French champions signature.
This announcement has brought from
William A. Brady, who Is tho rcpresonta'
tivo of Cocnran, a sharp denial of the
claim put forth In behalf of Fox. Brady
writes as follows:
I obscrvo that Mr, Fox makes the
statement that the contract between Mr,
Cochran and Mr. Carpentler becomes
null and void on February 15.
Permit me to Inform Mr. Fox that I
havo In my possession tho contract be
twecn Cochran" and Carpentler. and !
feel that as Mr. Cochran on the eve of
his departure for Europe stated that
would represent him In thin country In
nil matters concerning Dempsey and
Carpentler, that' Mr. Fox might have
taken the trouble to ascertain whether
tho contract between Cochran nnd Car.
iicntlcr ended on February 15. The con.
tract will show that Carpentler is bound
to Cochran for a year longer and there
Is no possibility of Carpentler engaging
In a bout with Dcropeey except under
arrangement with C. B. Cochran.
Therefore I should like to know by
what right Mr. Fox or anybody else In
the United States declares that no con-
tract exists between Cochran and Car
Will Show Coutrnct.
I should be most pleased, at the earli
est possible moment, to exhibit,. If It
becomes necessary, to Messrs. tox.
Kearns, Rlekard, tho International
Sporting Glub, the Jersey Boxing Com
mission, or any of the gentlemen who
are proposing to pass legislation for tho
resumption ot boxing contests in me
State of New 'York, a copy of the bona
fido contract between C. B. Cochran and
Qecrgea Carpentler duly countersigned
by his manager, which can be upheld In
any court n England, Franco or Amer
ica. A contest wltli Pempsey cannot do
held before February 15, 1931, unless
by the consent or under arrangement
with C. B. Cochran.
From now on. as representative of,
Mr. Cochran. 1 proposo that these pro
moters who are making statements not
based on fact about the Frenchman's
contrart with Cochran shall come out In
the open and show their- hands.
Mr. Cochran has deposited J2&.000
with ffnortltt!; TAte in London to guar
antee his contract with Caywntler and
on a later date this "year he will deposit
an additional sum as assurance that the
contract shall be lived up to.
As far as Dempsey Is concerned I
havo represented Mr. Cochran In all his
dealings with Kearns, and I am In re-1
celpt of a telegram from Kearns from
.03 Angeles stating that he will see me
at the earliest possible moment and dis
cuss tho proposition of Dempsey sign
Ing with Cochran.

0 the Judiciary Committee of the Jieto York State fienafeflit open let'
ter Gentlemen:
To-day you will hold a hcarins on tho Walker bill, which would
localize publlo professional boxlnj; exhibitions. Tho tiaUent feature of tho
bill provide for fifteen rounds, to a decision, by a referee, with tho oasis tanco
of two Judge-, salaried commission of 'three, men land a licensing com.
tnltteo. 'Without question tho mast important feature of tho mil aoes noi
show Jn tho wordltiB thereof. It is' essential that you reallzo that tho "Wallccr
moosuro has tho backing of thp Army, Navy and Civilian Board of Boxliur
Control and its allied organization, tho International Sporting Club. It la
deslrablo and necoasary that you approclato that tho board and tho club are
not bodlea composed of professional promoters and managers, whoso main
intent in hnvin u flnAnrdni. Tho board and Its allied organisation uro
composed of aomo of the best known sportsmen In tho country leaders In
all walks of lifefinanciers, generals, admirals, college presidents, af8-"
amateurs in tho true senso of that word, inasmuch as theyjiro lovers of box
ing and not professional parasites of tno sport.
Theso men ask that you aPDrovo the bill as It is, and particularly that
you approve the feature which provides for a licensins committee. If tho
Boxing Board Is permitted to havo an advisory word in the appointment of
tho licensing committee it is ready to assume responsibility with the commis
sion for the conduct of tho' sport. This, na wo tako it, would prccludo the re-
lval of scandals which lulled boxing In tho Ilorton and Frawley law aays.
Tho Walker bill merits your approval for divers reasons. In tho first
nlaeo It la essential that hoxlnir return as a legalized snort. Aside from tho
worth of tho sport as a builder of tho body and tho faculties the fact remains
that there is in he mm a certain virilo enthusiasm which must nnd an out
let. And boxin provides a splendid medium for giving vent to that enthu
siasm. Thoso who protest against boxing too often confound it with prize
llL'htlng because they know no better, prize lighting nas gone ami nuver
will return. Boxing, as you all know, has become highly specialized entertainment.
While the bill Drovidcs for fifteen rounds all bouts would not bo sched.
uled for that limit. Only contests between leaders and in which titles aro
involved would Ibo billed for fifteen rounds! and In order that there may bo
a real contest fend a fair basis for a decision thero should bo fifteen rounds.
As for decisions, it has been agreed that they aro absolutely necessary for
the welfare of tho BDort and thoso who pay their way in
Wo havo one suggestion. You might recommend that tho bill bo pas3eti
with a local ontlon rider similar to that on tho Sunday baseball law. This
would glvo boxing to communities which want it and would not forco it on
communities which do not desire to have tho professional sport conducted
In their midst by a minority of tho citizens. j
Trading Pot May Soon Begin to Bubble.
Now that tho American League war la over, tho rules havo been changed,
tho prices raised and other things done, mijor leaguo baseball is making a
belated return to the winter normal. The trade pot is trying hard to noil,
but with John McGraw in Cuba, for ono thing, there is no real action. Tho
fact that there are so few high class players and' that clubs are looking to
buy men and not to trade them Is another factor which is making this winter
the rankest ot rank failures in trading history,
Yesterday's little morsel ot which baseball writers were eager to grab
was a note to the effect that Dutch uuether, tho Cincinnati pitcher, was to
he traded to the Giants for Zimmerman and another pitcher or an .outfielder.
The Giants could use Ruethcr, but they already havo two first cl'iss left
handers. A3 for Zimmerman, he could not displace anybody now in the
Ueds' Infield. He might bo held In reserve, particularly as first aid to Jake
Daubert's bad legs. In- a utility role Zlmroerrrua might provo a valuable
player for Pat Moran. With Schrclbcr, Jimmy Smith and Sherry Magee gono
the Reds need an experienced mrfn to Jump into a posslblo breach. How-
over, wo do not think that tho trade will bo made unless McGraw has some
other deal for an inileldcr in which he could use Ruethcr. John is a great
hand at that sort of tiling;
With uuether to bolster up Its depleted pitching forces Boston might
he persuaded to give up Maranville. Marnnvllle's release to tho Giants, wo
are Informed, would be followed by the resignation of StalHngs as manager.
Perhaps that Is what G. W Grant and his associates are angling for.

Elder .bjszlio, Jiow Here, WrcsUed the Great Gams.
The arrival of Stanislaus Zbyszko brought to theso shores a wrestler who.
rom experience, knows of the prowess of tho Great Gama. the Hindu whoso
praises were sung In this column by an English correspondent soma days
ago. It dovcloped yesterday that some ten years ago, when tho eldcnZbyszko
and -Gama were at their' best, they met on tho mat in London. ' jFor four
hours and fifteen minutes they struggled and neither was able to gain a fall.
The referee finally called tho bout a draw. Only a short tlrao before that
Gama met Dr. B. F. Roller In London and the American was forced to retire
with two broken ribs aflcr about twenty minutes of tussling.
Wlitle it Is conceded that the Great Gama was a great wrestler about a
decade ago, and that he still may be a remarkable performer, It is doubted
whether he would make a worthy match for either Steelier or Lewis. George
Sandow, who manages Lewis, said that thero was talk of bringing Gama to
(his country twenty years ogo. The Hindu must bo close to the fifty year-
mark far past tho nge of champions in any virile sport Sq it looks as If
Stecher, after all, is tho undisputed champion of the world.
Tho question of age develops the fact that Stanislaus Zbyszko himself
is not exactly a youngster. He is perhaps 42. Stanislaus is not likely to
wait long for a match as Lewis stands ready to talio him on.

A new Elegance of Line
Seen in this Chalmers
r"S a car very easy to look at; and there Va wealth of corh'
fort in those new type seat cushions of this Chalmers.
. Besides, this new elegance has in no way penalized roominess.
At the radiator the lines are high.. At the rear they are low.
From the cowhback the top line, of the coach is low, but
as you sit in the car you have a feeling this line is high.
Once in motion thjs position become6,cyen more alluring as
you cling to" the seat, .note the absence of sidesway, and feel
that the car is hugging the road closely. ,
Particularly is your enthusiasm stirred when you observe the
.ease of the engine's effort, its intense silence,'the quick response
when you turn loose the power stream."
. You tacitly pay a compliment to Hot Spot and RamVhorn,
for they have Hetcherized the raw gas,: utilised the last drop of
power that nature stored away.
And you admire a Chalmers the; more for it, for in addition
to its beauty of action, it is arrayed in new garments that are
refreshing to a degree. ? ,
