Johnson Loses Opener
By JACK XYE.
One of the grandest little alibis
for our American League pitchers
r seems to be fading into nothingness.
Not many weeks ago a perspiring
athlete, after being bumped for sevI
eral home runs and a score or more
* hits, could square himself thusly:
? J1 - ? *> V ? nan't
" wen, w u*u ya caj/cv.1 . ?vm do
nothin" with this here lively ball.
They ought* cut 'em out. Am I
fight or am I wrong?"
That waa all very well In the recent
past, but It sounds sort of
fishy these days. There has been
a general tendency on the part of
the pitchers to tighten up, with a
resultant damage to many thriving
. This trend was very noticeable
yesterday in the two games played
between the Griffs and the Athletics.
The outstanding feature of
each battle was the pitching. There
was quite a. bit of fancy fielding,
but no hitting to speak of.
Take a look at the scores. Washington
lost the opening game by a
score of 2 to 1 and won the second
one In the twelfth inning by the
tighter count of 1 to 0- That does
not look as if the lively ball cut
much ice when the pitching arms
are working well.
Foar Pitchers Is Form.
? Of the four pitchers used during
the day there wasn't one who could
complain of the ball being too lively.
The left-handed Hoy Moore and
I Walter Johnson fought it out in
the first set-to, and each yielded
seven bingles. Barney lost because
he slipped in the eighth and alI

their hits. Moore refused to wobl

the visiting cluster was productive
of enough to win.
Moore refused to allow a hit or

round with a scratch hit to J. Walker
at first, and Harris advanced him
a base with a rap to left, the first
clean hit for the Griffs. Each runner
advanced a base while Rics was
being thrown out. Smith socked a

It was one egg after another in
that final game, with neither pitcher
having much trouble. The first hit

Johnny Walker in the second round.

off hits time and again. Miller and
Rice also came to time with exceptional

in each of the first two frames and

Says Demptey is Not 1
At Top Form
Br WILLIAM A. BRADY.
(Veteran Theatric*I Producer and Fight
Promoter, ind the Man Who Made a Champion
of Jamea J. Corbett.)
NEW YORK, July 1.?When Jack
DempaeV faces Georges Carpentier
in the ring at Jersey City tomorrow
afternoon he meets the fastest,
brainiest, trickiest hard-hitting
boxer he has ever met in his career.
I have seen Dempsey in action
many times. I saw Carpentier box
Gunboat Smith in London in 1914.
in that bout 1 saw the young
Frenchman put the burly Smitn
down for the count of nine with a
blow on the jaw, and Gunboat had
at that time faced Dempsey successfully
for twenty rounds. The
knock down was scored when both
men were as fresh as when they
started, for little had been done in
the early rounds. I am frank to
atate, however, that 1 think if the
bout could have been continued to
the limit Smith would have won.
Carpentier owes that victory to the
qutok-thinking Desohamps, who
Iclaimed a foul when Smith deliberately
struck Carpentier when he
was on his knees. He had slipped
there and had not been knocked
idown. Carpentier was in good
I shape when the foul occurred, and
c^uld have continued with an even
chance to win.
Georges puzzled the Gunboat that
night in London by his dazzling
speed and by his original methods
of sparring. He seemed to have no
set style, but changed his mode or
defease and attack almost every
moment. He seemed a composite of
all the styles of boxing I had ever
seen. He is as quick on his feet as
Jim Corbett ever was and hits a
jton harder. He has not Corbett's
style of sidestepping and feinting,
'but even in his footwork and feint
Ing he has style entirely his own.
When he fought I.*evinsky last year
In Jersey City, he disclosed but little
of his real ability. He will
prove a puxsle to Dempsey tomorrow.
I am not under-rating Dempsey.
He is a wonderful specimen and has
a remarkable record. But I saw
him bojt Brennan. If that contest
was an honest one. and I think it
was. then it should be evens on tomorrow's
Carpentier is a far better man
than Brennan and will prove It if
they ever meet and if he hits Dempsey
as easily as Brennan did it will
be all over but the shouting.
Don't talk to me about Dempsey
being in bad condition the night
he met Brennan. The bout lasted
twelve rounds and Dempsey won by
a knockout. This result does not
Indicate a lack of condition. Dempsey
is an easy man to hit. That
was proved in Toledo when Willard
landed at will on him In rounds
two and three, notwithstanding the
fart that he could hardly stand
after the beating he foolishly took
in the first round. Miske fought

. Dempney ten rounds twice and held
his own. The battle at Benton
Harbor last year should not be
counted as Misk^ hud been in a
hospital nearly a year.
Willie Meehan has a decision
over Dempsey. Yet young Gibbons
dropped him in one round this
week. I quote these bouts to show
that Dempsey has no claim to being
I am a great believer in psychology
before men meet in the ring
and the gong sounds. The articles
of agreement for this contest were
signed in my office. There Carpentier
and Dempsey met for the first
time. Kearns proposed that he
should sign for Dempsey. but Carpentier
insisted on Dempsty signing
personally. He waited two
hours for Dempsey's arrival. It
was plain to me that the Frenchman
simply had planned to have
a good look at his prospective opponent
before sailing back to
Dempsey arrived. Carpentier like
a shot sprang to his feet, crossed
to Dempsey and while he carelessly
felt Dempsey's muscles slapped his
thighs, felt his calves and gave him
a complete lookover. Laughing
filled the air with admiring shouts
of "magniflque," tremendous" "superb."
Meantime Dempsey stood
speechless at the superb impudence
of the other mian, and in fact he
did not open his mouth for five
Dempsey rem%mbers that. Next
day they played eighteen holes of
golf together. It seemed queer to
; flght followers, but I am told y*u
