Cargo Steamers Turned Into Training Ships WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.

The City of Berlin, receiving snip at uosion, and Iris, at San Francisco, will be re- By JACK KEENE According to the latest dope from Tex Rlckard, et al, there- isn't any hitch so far to the proposal to stage a championship battle between Cham pion Jess Willard and Jack Dempsey some time in July. Whether or not the fight really doea come off is a question. But Tex Rick- ard, Jess Willard, Jack Dempsey and the other parties to the deal owe the fans of this country a square deal before the mill starts as well as after the two men have shook hands. Under the terms given out Willard has accepted an offer of $100,000 to enter the ring. Rlckard stated that he would de posit 110,000 of that coin in Chicago at the time the offer was accepted. He agreed to post 515.000 more sixty days before the fight and thg remaining 575,000 the aay Deiore me battle. . Willard agreed to post a $10,000 guarantee immediately that he would live up to his word. Now the fair thing for Rickard and Willard to do is to show that the first deposits were actually made with rep utable people. Then Rickard must give the same publicity to the posting of his other two amounts. These men owe it to the public to show that the preliminary arrange ments are bonafide and not mere talk. Dempsey has agreed to accept $27,- 500 for his share. We believe the public ought to know it when he signs up and what the exact terms are. , Having fulfilled these obligations the promoters and fighters ought to lay their other cards up before the public when the least hitch occurs. They should lay off the mudsling ing. Without the fullest publicity, should any hitch arise, the negotiations for the fight will end in a cloud. Personally, I'm more interested in seeing the affair pulled off fairly and on a high plane than I am in seeing the question of supremacy settled in a bout that makes of "secret treaties" and back-room chicanery. the Boston Checker club he took part in a great number of club matches and often traveled long distances to see matches played. Less than ten years ago he traveled from Boston to Tole do to watch a match in which a player he had backed was engaged. He was rewarded for his pains by seeing his player lose. Lannin has always believed that checkers were in no small way respon sible for the success of Mathewson on the pitching mound. Big Six realized from his experience at the checker board that a ball game is not over in one inning; the score at the end of the game is what counts in baseball just as it does in checkers. Checkers helped Matty to plot and plan at the beginning of a ball game, as, he had done many a time at checkers, and taught him many other lessons of strategy on the ball field. Baseball fans have heard so much about the expertiress of Christy Math ewson in checkers they have been led to believe that Big Six is without a rival in the ranks of organized base ball. Such is not the case, however, for Joseph J. Lannin, erstwhile owner of the Boston Red Sox and leading spirit in the International league, when he is in practice can give Christy the game of his life at the checkerboard. Long before Lannin became identi fied with baseball he was a checker fan. Not only did he indulge in the game for his own amusement and pas time, but he backed with his bank roll some of the leading checker play ers in the United States. Long before Lannin ever thought of becoming the owner of a world's cham pion baseball team his thoughts were on checkers. He was only eighteen years old when his interest turned to the game up in Massachusetts. He soon perfected his play to such a de gree that he vanquished all the so called country store champions in the locality. Then he set about to con quer the champs of the towns in the immediate vicinity.

Hatfield Guard LIKELY ASPIRANT TO KILBANE'S CROWN IS A STABLEMATE OF FEATHER CHAMPION DAVENPORT ANXIOUS FOR CENTRAL BERTH More cities are falling in line in the middle western baseball revival. One of the latest to come through with definite plans is Davenport, la., where a mass meeting of fans will be held tomorrow night to determine the fate of the national pastime in that city. Davenport's action will have a pow erful effect in Moline, 111., where the fans say if Davenport lands a Central league franchise, Moline is in line for a berth in the circuit. Joe Tinker has not yet decided on the Dayton situation. He Is awaiting developments there and his action will be determined by the conditions he finds on his visit to that city this week. Tinker is worrying . whether fans will travel to Westfood field to see the game. This park is the only avail able one In Dayton. The Dayton Gym nastic club, which holds a lease on it, has promised the ground to Tinker at reasonable terms. Depends on Patronage. If the fans assure Tinker of patron age, the presence of a Central league team is assured. Otherwise, he will pass up the proposition. Joe is part owner of the Peoria club, which, with his aid, has been made one of the best paying small league franchises in organized baseball. Five former Central leaguers are figured on In Roger Bresnahan's plan to give Toledo an American associa tion team. Paul Carpenter, who led the Grand Rapids pitchers in 1917, and Bowman, who got a chance with the Cleveland Indians, after leaving Grand Rapids, are to be with Toledo in 1919. Other Central Leagues. Other ex-Central leaguers under re serve at , Toledo are First Baseman George Beall, Pitcher Red McColl and ShortstopNBunny Fabrique. The first two went from South Bend to Toledo, and Fabrique was in the International after leaving Fort Wayne. The Fort Wayne proposition will be solved on Tuesday when Jack Ry an will hold a conference with George Beimer, prominent sportsman of that city. Beimer in the estimation of Louie Heilbroner, dean of all minor league baseball fans in the middlewest, is one of Fort Wayne's best sportsmen and Is interested in baseball.
