BOWLING Dempsey Slacker Charge Unfounded, Says Kearns Manager Explains for Champ That He Had Four Dependents. FOLLOWED DRAFT RULE First Placed in 4-A, Then 1-A y and Later Permanently in 2-B. LOS ANGELES. Jnn. 14.—Jack Demp sey, world's heavyweight champion, to day answered the action and charges in stituted by a number of American legion posts which termed him a slacker during the war. In a formal statement Issued through hi s manager, Jack Kearns. Dempsey denies any lack of patriotism or unwillingness to have served during the war. Asked what he would do now that New Jersey bad barred his appearance there in a championship fight with Car pentier, Dempsey said: ‘ A - he re are lots of other places more RtiiQtble to such a bout than New Jersey, any way, We are not letting that worry us at all.” Kearns' statement follows: “Jack Dempsey was not a draft dodger during Ihe war. Any one who makes such a charge can not support It with WILL LET PUBLIC BE THE JCDGE. “Just because some persons—prompted undoubtedly by selfish motives—are at tempting to smear Dempsey’s reputation with the mud of slacker I feel culled upon to give the public a true explana Hon of the situation and let the public be the judge. “When the draft call came in 1917. Jack Dempsey was placed in class 4A. This was because he was a married man and in addition was supporting a mother an invalid brother and a sister. Dempsey af that time made no claims for exemp tion, merely stating the true facts in his own case when filling out his ques tionnaire. “Some time later the draft board, re adjusting the classification. placed Dempsey in Class A-l, but almost im mediately afterward put him in Class 28. He remained there during the rest of the war, and was subject anv day to tall for war duty. If the conflict 'had lasted a few weeks longer It seems a certainly that Dempsey would have been In the uniformed service. HELPED IN WAR CHARITIES. “During the course of the war Jack Dempsey was employed ns a riveter and as a recruit in the Sun Shipbuilding plant of Philadelphia and also in one of the shipyards in Seattle. And when he was not doing that, he was appearing In fistic contests at the benefits for the different war charities. By this means approximately $100,900 was raised for the various war funds. ‘‘Those who charge Dempsey with be ing a slacker, because be worked In the shipyards, and helped to raise nearly SIOO,OOO for the various war charities— apparently have over-reached themselves In their charges, for by that contention they are smudging the reputation of every other exempted man who served the nation in the working army at home —and served It so notably—by working night and day in the essential industries so that the war could be brought to a speedy and successful conclusion.’’ Em-Roes Tackle Big Teams Here in Next Games on Schedule Independent Champs Play Lima Five Thursday and Indians Jan. 20.

Cochrane’s chances of landing the Dernp sey-C'arpentler heavyweight battle for the Olympia stadium in London are greatly improved today. The action of the New Jersey state boxing commission 1n barring Jack Dempsey on account of bis lack of war record, and the trend of sentiment against Tia Juana as the site for the biggest fistic event in history have practically swept the main obstacles from Coch rane's path. Conneetlcut, where twenty-round bouts may be held, was removed as a possible site for the big fight when the authori ties at New Haven set a precedent by cancelling the scheduled Leonard-Dundee bout. Tex Rickard's name was brought into the fight situation today.

The followers of the two clubs packed the g.vm t" capacity and the doors were closed on more than 100 fans long before the game started, in the first game the V. P. C. team defeated the Willards. 18 to 16. At times, especially during the final minutes of play, the contest was a trifle rough, but the brilliant work of both teams outshined the black spots. The Debonairs showed much better team work in the first period, and when they stopped for anew supply' of cork they were leading 18 to 6. It was good sports manship that defeated the Debonairs li the sei-ond period. The Ferndales came back in this round with a display of whirlwind speed and were slowly gain ing on the "Debs” when Fulkerson, their star forward, was disqualified for com mitting his fourth personal foul. With this lad out of the contest Coach Squires’ scoring combination. starhuek and O'Cain, pounded the basket for an eight point lead and tbe Ferndales seemed doomed to defeat until the Black and White warriors consented to let Folkcr son back in the game. With two min utes to go the Ferndales t(ed the count and Folkerson shot the basket that won tbe game, lust as Referee Smith blew tbe final whistle. The Y. P. O. quintet also had to dis play a clever brand of basketball to win the opening game from the Wil lards. These men are out for the junior Independent championship of the state, and their play last night, proved that they will put up a grand battle with am y team of their class in the state. Healey and Kelly were, as usual, the big guns of the “Ylpci” outfit. The ac curate shooting of these two men brought their team up from behind in the last three minutes of play. Friday night tbe winners will meet the Cbrlstamore In dians, at Chrtstamore, and Monday they Journey to Cumberland for a game with the Cumberland Independents.

Mr. Graff said yesterday that he was ready to enter into a discussion with the "board of commissioners on high school football and it was believed that the case would be settled last night, but! tbe board talked over plans for the coming year until 1 o'clock this morn ing and at that time it was decided that the football hearing should be post- j poned until a later date, as the question is of such importance that an entire, eve- ! ning probably wull be spent in discussiou before final action is taken.

The Cen tral Alley quintet smacked the clubs for the high count, getting a total, and went. Into second place, 132 clubs behind the high team. The Maiott Shoes got away nicely with 1.028 pins and for a short time took on the appearances of top scorers, but the best they could get In their second and third games was only ordinary stuff and they stopped in at the sixth station with 2,700. The Central Union men went Into third place with a 3,793 total and the Rotary No. 1 warriors took fourth place with a total of 2.769.

They have the satisfaction of knowing that their favorites gave Franklin the stlffest. opposition that, that quintet has met this year outside of the game lost to Mar* r sville, while at Greencastle tbe break;- were against them throughout the contest and they almnly lacked tbe last minute punch that called for a field goal In order to shove over a win. Thorntown is known not to have a semblance of the team that reached the semi-finals In the state meet, last year and the record of the present aggrega tion is anything but impressive. As far as dope and comparative scores p> the locals are rated a big favorite in the approaching contest. Thorntown, how ever, Is up in tbe running each year about the time 'he state meet comes around and is one of the most frequent spiller* of tbe dope bucket in Indiana. Thorntown. by virtue of its two state championships, is one of tbe biggest drawing cards in the state and an lm mense crowd is expected to he on hand Saturday.
