Rickard Announces Jess and
Champ Jack Will Meet
on Irish Day.
NEW YO*K, Dec. I.—Jack Dempsey
and Jess Willard will fight a return battle
for the world’s heavyweight champion
ship March 17, nest, according to Pro
moter Tex Richard. If the boxing com
mission sanctions the bout it will be held
In Madison Square Garden. The boxers
are understood to have agreed upon a
percentage division of the receipts.
Reports of the match had been circu
lated for some time, but official announce
ment of contracts having been signed was
not msde until today.
Dempsey is preparing for the first real
campaign he has launched in defense of
his title since he became heavyweight
champion of the world. He will engage
lc a number of bouts against the best
men available prior to his big champion
ship affair with Georges Carpentler. The
first of these :s but two weeks away.
On Dec. 14, the champion will collide
with Bill Brennan in n fifteen-round de
cision bout in Madison Square Garden.
He has been in light training with this
bout in prospect for more than a month,
but with the definite announcement of
the date has set about working in earnest.
Dempsey does his training in Central
Park and aboard the I'nited States train
ing ship Granite State, which is anchored
In the Hudson off Ninety-Sixth street.
Numbered among his sparring partners
•re Bill Tate, Dan O'Dowd, Battling
Thomas and Young Jack Johnson. Today
the champion took on two new partners
In A1 Reich and C.ay Turner, and from
now on will box at least ten rounds
Dempsey is keeping fit. He takes the
best of care of himself and does soin - *
sort of work every day, whether or not
he has a bout in prospect. Since he
took up golf more than six weeks ago
he gets plenty of outdoor exercise in ad
dltion to his regular rosd work. He i
looks the tart cf a champion.
The manner in which Itemnsey won
from Jess Willard led ring followers to
believe that big Jess would be foolhardy
to seek a return match. Y.'iliard evi
dently does not think so. For several
months Willard has been going through
easy training sprouts on his Kansas
farm. He believes he can come back.
Willard should be as much of an *t- ;
traction ayainst Dempsey as Brennan.
Several years ago Dempsey knocked
Brennan nut. Now Bill is going to get
another chance. And so is Willard.
NEW YORK, Dec. I.—The New York
State Boxing Commission today revoked I

A Sure Thing That Wasn’t
A number of the so-called "silk shirt
boys" are singing the blue*. A stranger
went Into their midst till* week find
took their bank roils right out of their
hands anti at their own game. It hap
pened like this: The stranger was from
the coast and after he had mingled with
the "boys" awhile a boxing discussion
started. Old fights were recalled and a
difference of opinion arose regarding the
length of the Bat Nelson-Ad Wolgast
bout in 1910. The argument grew hot. The
“silk Bhirters” believed they saw a
chance to make a “sure-thing” killing
and they rushed a messeuger to the
phone to make Inquiry regarding the
bout In question. The messenger re
turned post haste with his information
and the betting started. The stranger
covered everything. Fives, tens, twen
ties and even fifties were flashed, it is
said, and the wager is reported to have
grown into the hundreds. When the
stranger continued to show a willingness
to keep betting the "silk-shirters” be
came suspicious aiul sent out after more
information regarding the length of the
match In question. The messenger
again returned and his words apparently
satisfied the “boys” they were right be
yond a doubt. They offered more money
and the stranger covered. The ' silk shirt
boys" contended the Nelson-Wolgast bout
was a forty-two-round affair; the
stranger contended that it was forty. It
WAS forty rounds, with Wolgast the
winner, the bout being heid at Point
Richmond, Cnl.
Everybody was wrong but the stranger
and the reason he was certain of his
ground was due to the fact that he
had witnessed the bout.
American Legion Will
, Introduce Boxing Bill
In Indiana Legislature
A bill asking that boxing be legalized
In Indiana will be introduced in the
Indiana Legislature during the 1921 ses
sion, which opens Jan. 6, through the
Indiana American Legion.
At a special session of the State
legion executive committee yesterday aft
ernoon, tentative bill drawn up by the
special committee on boxing was re
ceived and ordered prepared. A special
legislative committee also was ordered
appointed by the State commander for
the purpose of handling this bill and
seeing that It gets due consideration
from the legislators.
The bill provides for a State boxing
commission of three capable men to be
appointed by the Governor of the State.
This committee, in turn, is authorized
to appoint four deputies, or Inspectors,
whose duty it will be to attend bouts
and submit reports of them to the State
All bouts will b of ten rounds and
no boxer under 18 years of age will
be permitted to compete. An admittance
age limit of 16 years also will be im
The State commission will have the
power to issue licenses good for one
year, but a special permit must be se
cured for the holding of each bout. No
one person will be permitted to conduct
bouts lu the State. License will be
granted only to clubs and responsible
organixatlons. This provision is made
so that no “roving promoter” can step
Into the State, pul! an unsatisfactory
show, then jump out before the com
mission can take action.
Colleges, American Legion Posts, Y.
M. C. A. branches, K. of C. councils and
other such organizations may s'age bouts
without obtaining a special permit.
Western Putt-and-Drive Lead
ers Threaten Uprising and
Cause East to Speculate.
NEW YORK, Dec. I.—Golfing circles
in the East were agitated today over ths
announcement that the Western Golf As
sociation had proposed an invasion of
tho East for the purpose of wresting
control of tho game In this tountry from
tho United States Golf Association. A
hitter war for the supremacy is being
The first effect of the challenge, it was
lieliered here, would be to draw a sharp
line of distinction between those play
ers who cling to the rules agreed on
between the committee of the United
States Golf Association which recently
vir.lted the Royal and Ancient club ot
St. Andrew In Scotland and the Eng
lish parent body and those who preset
the, regulations of the Eastern associ
ation. Outside of the amateur rule the
principal differences are those relating to
6tymle.a and to lost and unplayable ball*.
CHICAGO, Dec. I.—lnvasion of the Fast
by the Western Golf Association as part
of a plan to bring all the goif clubs of
the country under the same set of rule*
is proposed in amendment* to the W.
G. A.s constitution and by-laws submitt
ed by mail to the directors today.
The changes to be voted on at the an
nual meeting on Jnn. 15 involve adoption
of anew name, the “American Goir As
sociation," that would “act as the author
itative body for making and enforcing th*
rules for the playing of golf in the United
States.” {
There have been rumor* of a golf war
between the W. G. A. and the United
States Golf Association, the controlling
body in the East, for several years.
Offe of the chief purposes of the new
golf organization, if approved, would b*
to revise those rules which it is said
were originally intended for Scotch and
British course* and are not practical for
American courses.
Decentralization of control would b
effected by the proposed constitution, it*
advocates claim, as the nine director*
and officers would be chosen from not
less than seven different States. Similar
action in the case of the board to allot
amateur and open championships would
draw these different members from dif
ferent sections “in proper relative pre-por
tion to the number of golf players con
tiguous thereto.”
In making the proposal, Croft W. Hig
gins. assistant secretary of the W. G. JL,
said American golfers had been "muzzled
both by tradition and by the oligarchial
methods of government No other sport
could exist under such conditions.”
The membership of the Western Golf
Association of nearly 300 clubs had been
restricted to those clubs west of a line
through Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Atlanta,
while the U. S. G. A., embracing about
400 clubs. Included some within W. G. A.
