I DEMPSEY AGREES TO FRAZEE'S OFFER OF $350,000 TO BOX HARRY WILLS
' We AcceptKearns Says,
\^5 We Are Not Mercenary'
In- >Jjie Meantime Flournoy Signs Charlie White and
(Johnny Dundee and Buff and Lynch to Box
in the Garden on March 17.
By W. O. MfCEEH
Hawing made 1Mb offer of $3of*.000 for the Dempsey end of a bout
between the heavyweight champion and Harry Wills, Mr. Harry H. Frazee
of New' York, Boston and Peoria has disappeared apparently to avoid any
notoriety. Mr. Frazce's friends say that he will be better if his tempera
ture would only go down. He has been very feverish since the time he
was falsely accused by the Boston baseball writers of disliking codfish.
Beneath his rugged exterior Mr. Frazee is extremely delicate and sensitive.
The offer has not ruffled to any via -
hie extent the poise of Jack Kearns.
manager for Dempsey. Time waa
when the ears of Mr. Kearns vstre s<>
ticutely attuned financially that he
v.itiM hear a dime drop into the saw
just. But since the affair at Biyle s
Thirty Acres the loosest talk of large
noney no longer excites Mr. Kearns.
Thev do say that when Mr. Fra7.ee
flrst mentioned the sum in t!iai casual
fashion with which Mr. Frazee mentions
l-1 r ge sums Mr. Kearns paled slignti>
:\rid was heard to say. ?'Haves, my
smelling salts." (Mr. Ted Hayes is so
. i.ti secretary to the heavyweight cham
5,ion). But * the great manager of the
Jreat chnmpr n recovered immediately.
immediate y thereafter, according to
Mr Ike D? rgan. Mr. Kearns said lan
guidly. "Show Mr. Frazee out. We can
rot discuss these minor affairs and
minor sums at present."
This of course is only on the word ot
Mr. Dorgan. At one time .Mr. Dorgan's
reputation for veracity ranked high, hut.
.vinoc he has become a spaghetti addict
> r has been known to exaggerate. Often

statements which?we regret to say
.?f.tild not be verified. Consequently this
may be only the vaporlngs of a spaghetti
ilred brain.
nempirr I" Will Inn.
Later Mr. Kearns was seen by per
.??i>ns not under the influence of spaghetti.
He declared that he would accept the
terms as soon as he could get hold of
Mr. Frazee. He wants a search war
rant or a writ of habeas corpus to get
hold of the promoter before he can get
out of the jurisdiction of the I'nited
.siates.
"The terms are very satisfactory,"
paid Mr. Kearns. "Very satisfactory in
<leed. Has anybody seen Mr. Frazee
lately? I hope that nothing happens to
the poor fellow until he gets a chance
1k sign the papers and post a forfeit.
How is dear old Harrys health any
how? Are you sure that he is well
wrapped up and everything? A man
like Mr. Frazee, a benefactor of the
j iniiau race, could ill he spared at this
lime.
?It is not true that I am holding out
for half a million dollars for Jack
Jiempaey's share of the purse. Thank
heaven, no matter what else they can
say about me they cannot say that r
am mercenary. I am willing to com
promise on $:530.000. I assure you that
if Mr. Frazee should walk inside the
door at this moment and place $300,000
in iny hands I would take ii and gi^e
3>im a receipt. That is how little Pemp

"Oh, no. boys, believe me, money !s

"I do not think i have been treated
fairly," said Ward after the conference.
I "The first contract .nailed to me this

Manager Huggins said he had gone
as far as authorized by the owners In
the matter and it looked very much

lock. as Wairt insisted he would not
accept the club's terms.
"I am neither with the owners nor
with the player in such a casv as this."

batting fireworks and fielding scintilla- i

The well known Tortillas were ai ?
rayed against the equally celebrated)
Knchlllados. with h mess jC hot tainales
as the stakes, and it w s a real chili
contest, with Ike Boone in the role of
the larruping laird. If it had not been
for a home run to deep left center with
two on in the eighth by the high
priced outfielder from New Orleans, the
battle would have ended In a draw.
As it was. the Boone contribution
accounted for three runs and gave the
tnmales to the Tortillas by a score of
7 to 4. To-night Senor Burkett. who i.s

Apparently "Mac" would like to use Ike
at Kelly's station, but fears that this
?vould give the player the impression
that he is not strictly in the running

Berry, who has been used at first base !

working with new ambition and deter- |

they practically admit. In the last play
Ire season Babe Ruth hammered out
fifty-nine home runs. In the season be
fore he batted fifty-four.
II may l>e that bis home rail record
will be lower this year because be is
handicapped by the penalty Imposed on
him by Judge l.andis. The high arbiter
of baseball has ruled that Ruth shall
not be allowed to start playing to the
regular season this year until May 1".
Ttiis cuts him thirty playing days out
of 154. It is natural to believe he will
fall below last year's record.
Then again with the new incentive
Babe Kuth may do better than ever.
Bven i? he does not and the law of aver
ages gives him only a paltry forty home
runs for the season, this would bring
him a total bonus of $20,000, which is
the salary paid to Tristram Speaker, th-?
player manager of the Cleveland Indians
and one of the greatest outfielders that
ever lived.

contract. He found that Rutli was not
even interested in that figure. He
dodged the Colonel for several day*,
scurrying ahead of him along the golf
links.
But Col. Tlllinghast L'Hommediu Hus
ton who led the Sixteenth Kngineers In
France was not to be foiled. Accord
ing to eyewitnesses the Colonel finally
outflanked the flitting home run king,
surrounded him and led him to a. room

the final cut in of the scenario of Babe

Ruth incurred the ire of Judge Knn
and drew a sentence of forfeiture of Wis
share of the world's series money when
he violated the rule which prohibits
participants in a world's series from
playing post season games. Ruth de
clared it was a fool law and that he
intended to break it. While not taking
the worth of the rule into consideration
Judge Landls ruled that an long an the
law stood Ruth had to be punished for
violating it. The faet that Ruth aban
doned his barnstorming trip of his own
violation moved the Judge to Impose
what ho considered a light sentence
The Babe's l.lfe Drnms.
The story of Babe Ruth Is n or. amaz
ing than any ever a small boy dreamed.
He first oppeared on any diamond as
cateller In the Brothers team at St.
Mary's Industrial School at Baltimore,
and he started to hit them <>\<i the
fence. In J913 he played on the Mount
St. Joseph's College team at Baltimore
and he used to knock them out of tb?
lot.
Jack Dunn, who owns the Baltimtt<e
club in the International League, was
told about him by the Broth* rs and h''
next appeared on tho Baltimore club as
a left handed pitcher but n ffecher w im
iould hit. lister ho went to the Provi
dence team In (bo ssnv learnt. . Finally
he was acquired by Boston It, iite Ameri
can league. He began to loft th< nt over
tho right field fence* In the America it
l^esKUe.
Finally he was purchased by I he New
York Yankees for close to $1.>0,000, the
highest price ever paid for a baseball
player. At that time good baseball au
thorities decided tbs* Col. Ruppert and
Huston had be* r.nie affect'd by th.-> heat.
Predictions were mail" that Ruth WO"Id
b - ak dow n.
Bill Rut t did not break .!<.?? He
con tinned t ?? pound the nlll again t the
distant horizon. The receipts .. the
Valti.'es started to swell. Not unl; that,
but the aggregate receipts of tin Ntneri
enn fragile grew bigger. It. is istl
trtnted that last year alone Ruth helped
to swell the league'* gate receipts hy
'ometlitnt like half a million. Not only
that, but he ?a.? an Influence toward
boosting the receipts of the Xationai
League. The recent prosperity of all or- 1
gnnized baseball Is due to a revitalizing
of the sport flue to the impact of the
great swatter's bat.

The best thst Ruth drew as a mem- ,
her of the Boston Red Sox was $'J.0fio.
The year Harry Frazee soli him to the ,
Yankees lie had signed him up for three
years for that much a year. As soon
as he was signed by the Yankees Ruth I
demanded more money and got it. Last
season he was getting very close to
$"0,0nn in salary and special bonuses.
The Babe has made several commer
! rial ventures with not much financial
succ esij. Once when he had sig-ned with
a motion picture concern he got a check
, for $25,000. but he held it as an exhibit
until the firm went broke and Ruth hfldj
nothing for his movie work but the
check marked "V. F."
Kflforts to extract any details from
Col. Tillinghast L'Hommcdleu Huston at
Hot Springs were hardly successful.
"Tt is no piker salary." said the
Colonel. "It is better than a railroad
president's handout, and no dinkey ruil
i road at that."
"Is It better than $50,000," the Colonel
v.-as asked.
"Say. you never heard of a trunk line
president getting any less." said tf.e
Colonel. "Babe is a big time rond pre\
i or at least in one's class."
"Is it between $75,000 and SIoo.aoo
the Colonel was asked. To thlr ques
tion lie replied with an eloquent siler.c* .
and no one can be more eloquent In
his silences than this s.ime Tillinghast
L'Hommcdleu Huston.
"I am going to keep my trap shut." ?
the Colonel concluded. "There !s always ,
a lot of discussion in making a de.il
as big as this one, Ruppert and I earh
had his own opinion, but at no time did
we make any too strong a stand. A? j
the contract was finally closed It is no
different as to mone" and substance
teallv than th* one I submitted to Rup
per several days ago. It's a. good con
tract for club nn<1 player. Babe won
the flin of the coin and It Is all cloned."

j Miami Discovers That Boston
inn's Groat Ape Is Barrier
in Championship.
By KKHH PF.TRIK.
Francis Ouimet must feel highly flat
tered when ho reads In a Miami paper
, what purports to be the remarks of
Jesse G?tlford when the national cham
pion was leaving the Florida resort for
Eoston after a va<"*tion of several
weeks. Franela the coming season ha*
a good chance to win the championship,
according to Guilford, but that Is not
the point. Ouilford said that Oulmet
011 the Brookllne course where the '?hain
plonshlp Is to be decided plays as well
as any one, which Is also true.
But. listen to this, all ye broken down
and decrepit golfers of the twenties:
"Ouimet's age makes this loom up as his
last chance to win the crown."
It must be an awful shock to Oulmet
to find the shadows of old age creeping
o'er him at 27. One can picture the
harrowing scene between the two Wood
; land wallopers, Guilford and Oulmet,
when Francis broke the news to Jesse
that he was beginning to feel old age
' contract and snarl his mashle, braasie
or baffle muscles, and to hear his ankle
i Joints creak as he turned to the pivot.
'Tis a sad world. Some one Is always
trying to take the joy out of life. Still.
' where there's life there's hope. At 27
Ouimet need not feel despondent. TTe
can reflect that Walter J. Travis was
eleven years older when he annexed Ills
? flrst national championship, that the
Garden City wizard won the British title i
when 4 2, and that he was still win- j
ning championships at G3, as witness
his performance at Apawamls In 1013'
In the metropolitan amateur title tour
I ney.
But let not all the sins of commission
or omission of the chronicler be lakl at
the door of Guilford. According to the j
| aforementioned interview Guilford has j
1 been made to say th*t In the <omlncr
| championship Massachusetts will pre- j
sent an array of talent that w ill make it
iiard for an outsider to break through,
riamlng among the Bay State stalwarts
"Buck Whltam. Rodney Brook and Tom
Wright."
As I\ S. MacLaughlln would say:
"You wouldn't know tiie old place now."
