lights for Franklin, with four and

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
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

he had backed was engaged. He was

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. As a member of

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.

the Dayton situation. He Is awaiting

If the fans assure Tinker of patron

Verlie Patchen Wants
To Race Single G

ers of Single G., 1:59; Miss Harris
M., 1:58 and Directum J., 2:01,
for a stake race with Verlie Patchen,
2:0114, owned by Kline, is attracting
wide attention in the harness wodld.
Kline's .proposition is for each of the
four owners to put up $2,500, which,
with $5,000 added by a race associa
tion would aggregate $15,000, winner
n form, as such is judged on the
harness tracks, either Single G. or
Miss Harris M. would be considered
the best bet in such a match. A win
ner pool would probably find the first
named favorite, with Miss Harris M
nearly as well thought of, Directum
J. next, and Verlie Patchen last.
Of the three pacers at which the
defi was aimed, Single G. is owned
by W. B. Barefoot, of Cambridge City,
Ind., and is in the stable of Allen
