fast that be has reached a very (ine
of physical pdrfection Is be
ed to have s much to do with the
halt in his training as anything else.
Manager Kearns neglected to give
a , specific reason fo'r his action in
closing up Airport. but those who
watched Dempsey in action Suaday
before- a crowd of nearly two thou
and were keenly- Impressed. with his
gppearance. Dempsey looks to be
very finely drawn. He is brown as
a berry and has lost the plumpuess
about his jowls. The hard work he
has been doing under the hot sun
has caused him to lose poundage and
according to his trainer. Teddy Hayes,
Is but six pounds over the weight
expects to carry into the ring for
Carpentier Julyt 2-190 pounds. This
means that he has taken off in the
neighborhood of nine pounds.
Old timers who have watched
Dempsey for the last few days are
unanimous in the belief that Manager
Kearns Ibes a very good reason for
calling the champion off. He is
ready, aside from his injured eye, per
baps, to enter the ring today and with
more than two weeks remaining be
fore the big fight comes of. a come
plate rest will do him more good than
asything else.
Dempeey substituted a horseback
y14e for his usual jaunt on the road
gghggy, He went out riding with
X**or Xd Rader. . In the afternoon
he staged his usual routine for the
0 that gathered at Airport,
the bag, shadow boxing and
the sixty-pound bag for a
ed of twenty-seven minutes.

tration, but" did not draw a
vy breath. proving tht his wind
Is perfect. The layoff he will take
today and perhaps tomorrow will give
im an opportunity to take on several
pounds, but he will easily work this
poundge ofN, as the weather here is

Jack Doyle Believes $50,000
Would Cover All Money
Put on Big Bout.
NEW YORK. June 13&-Considering
the importance of the bout, the Demp
.ey-Carpentier lontest bas drawn out
lese money in wagers than any other
ehampionehip -ontet. Two hemi
apheres are watahing the battlers and
talking of little sloe.. Many are to
be found of the opinion that Carpen
tier will win. But there is little
betting on the result. -
John, Doyle, who is- a barometer en
such matters, is inctined to think that
the bout will never reach the amount
in dollars that was risked on the Jef
ries-Johnson fight and the meeting
between Dempsey and Joe Willard at
Toledo. two years age, when Jack
ascended the heavyweight throne.
"Fifty thousand dollars, I believe, is
an outside estimate at this time,' said
Doyle. "This bout does not begin, to
compare with te Jeffries-Johnson
and Dempsey-Willard affairs at a cor
responding time in advance of those
"The Dempsey-WIllard bout was un
doubtedly one of the bigge$ betting,
propositions in the history of sport. I
believe that at least $2,000,00 must
have changed hands on the result of
that scrap. I goese it would be safe
to say that $1,000.000 was wagered
on the Jeffries-Johnson affair.
"There was not so much betting on
the meeting between Willard and
Johnson at Havana. but the money
placed was much more than har yet
shown on the coming fight. There
must have been $6ob.000 up when
Willard defeated Johnson and won
the heavyweight championship."
