We did it. We were stung beautifully. "Jeff climbed a -mountain today, showing wonderful endurance." Cor bctt was made to say. "Jeff is the cave man of old once more, and hit strength is marvelous." Familiar is the sound, of SVillard's "climbing mountains, running miles 6n the road, pounding sparring part ners."

Jack Dempsey, challenger for the world's heavy weight ring title, will-do all his train ing in the open air beside Lake Erie He will work hard one week, then rest a week, in order not to become stale Constant activity for months has kept him in good -condition, and he will not require the training Jess Willard must undergo. k To give Dempsey requisite speed to make a rushing, slam-banr battle. I Billy Miske, the St. Paul light-heavy- u eight, has been added to Dempsey's list of sparring patrons. Thebig fel lows, with whom the challenger will do most of his work, are Dan Dailey. of Newcastle. Pa.: Denver Jack Dyer, and Bill Tate, the Jamaica Kid and John Lester Johnson, three colored giants. "Strangler" Lewis, the wrestler. will teach Dempsey how to protect himself whenever the giant Willard falls into a clinch. Manager Jack Kearns is most insistent upon this phase of the challenger's training Seats are to be built at Dempsey's training quarters and all ring fans desiring to see the challenger in action will be permitted by paying a small fee covering the expenses of providing the seats.
