Kilbane Says Dempsey Will Knock Carp Out in the Fourth Round "Michael Angelo Would Have Fainted .With Joy" at Carp's Beauty, Says Artist MANHABSKTT. JjOng Inland, June 20.—Nfyu McMeln, famous magazine artist, haw tn-cn down here fo see Carpentier perform. In the New York World she ha* written a striking description of "thin beautiful person who L» attracting so much of the world's attention." She says: "Michael Angrlo would have fainted for Joy with the beauty of his profile, which Is almost pure Oreek. His strength Is apparently that of a tank, and Ills grace and agility would have made a Kud- Blan dancer green with envy. "His handx. which were a surprise to me, are Imaginative and sensitive hands with beautiful oval naila and might have belonged to anyone from Napoleon to Whistler. "And his legs! I figured I knew a little something about the nnatnmy of legs, but this young Frenchman has developed a hun dred little bumpy muscles that there la absolutely no accounting for. "In ense he gets tired of hitting Dempsey In the terrifying big fight July 2, I should think it would be a simple matter to kick him to death." BY JOHNNY KILBANE, Featherweight Champion. Ifopjrlghted. imi, The BesUle tUar) CHAMPION JACK DEMPSEY will knock out Georges Carpentier, the French flash, in four rounds when tha two meet at Jersey City, July 2, for the world's heavy weight title. That's my prediction. I base it on a careful study of both men. I watched Dempsey work and boxed with him at Atlantic City. I went to Manhassset to study the Frenchman in action. I talked with them both. Carpentier lacks the necessary confidence. And every day he spends at his camp at Manhasset adds to his unrest. Buried away in the lonesomeness of rural Long Island, shut off from the outside with only a few sparring partners by the barbed wire entanglements thlt surround his premises, Georges has nothing to think of but the coming fight, talks fight, eats fight and sleeps fight It's on his mind always, because there is nothing else to detraet i'rom it. And it hurts him. He conreals hla worry from moat of the outaldera on hla "ahow off days" with the famous Carpentler smile. Gut talk with him for an hour. You'll hear thin about Demp aey and that about Dempsey—it'a alwaya something about the champ that he liken to talk about, sure proof that the battle la haunting Georges and that It's wearing on him. I've been fighting for 14 years and I know flghtera. I've aeen lota of other men who larked confidence and I've aeen the reaulta when they atepped Into the ring. Dempsey meeta arorea of folks I dally. It'a had in a way. of course, hut K keepa hla mind pff the fight. |He Isn't worrying. He doean't have jtime. Not once did he mention the [.Frenchman's name or voluntarily make a remark about the approach- THE FIGHT BY ROUNDS ROI'ND I—Dempseyl—Dempsey starts after Carp with head lowered and guarded by his left, and right hand drawn back for opening to punch to the body. Carp dances around, retreat ing before Jack and trying to stick In left jabs to the face to buck up the champ. Dempsey evinces his to score a knockout as speedily as possible. ROCNI) !—Dempsey finds (Jeorges so elusive he can't reach his body and resorts to rushing, trying to corner Carp against the ropes so he can punish him at infighting r.eorges slips out of many of the»e traps and dances away. Carp gets In several hard wallops at the champ with his right, but If Dempwy feels them, he does not show It. KOI : ND 3—Dempsey opens with more rushing. trying to force Carp onto the ropes. On several occa sions he is successful, and he punishes the Frenchman severely at PENNSYLVANIA EXECUTES FOUR BEM-KONTAINE. Pa.. June 20. Four murderers were electrocuted here today. This is the ftrst time in the history of the state that four persons have paid the death penalty for the same crime. Soldier Bonus Is Favorably Reported WASHINGTON. June 20.—'The soldier bonus bill today was favor ably reported to the Bcnnte by the finance committee. The measure was accepted prac tlcally as drarted by a sub-commit tee and embraces five plans for ad- Justing compensation of veterans, ranging from a cash payment of $1 a day for home service and $1,25 for foreign service to uld in ucqulrlng homes. Its early consideration by the sen ate la to bo expected 7^l Ing fight In all the time* I talked with him. The Frenchman Is In prime physi cal condition, but he Isn't big enough to withstand the ferocious attack* of a fighter of Dempsey's caliber. Coupling thi* with the IS to to pound* greater weigh that the champ will carry, hi* greater reach and the fact that hell put every ounce pf strength he haa Into de fending hi* title meal ticket, I can't concede the challenger a chance. That's a little strong. He ha* a chance —once chance In a hundred of being able to slip over a lucky punch that lets htm out on top. But If he should win. It would be one of the biggest upsetting* of the dope pail that ever ha* occurred In fistic circle*. From my study of both champ and challenger, this Is my dope on how the fight will progress: close range, before Georges can slip away. Carp find* his plan of long range fighting Isn't getting over punshment on Jack, for most of the wallops he has tried up to this time have either been blocked or have missed. Georges goes to his corner breathing hard and obviously losing steam. Dempsey's stomach punches have weakened him. ROUND 4—Dempsey starts Jab bing at Carp's face. Georges dances back from them. He sees an open ing and sends over his right. Demp sey sidesteps the drive and Carp's arm slips over the champ's shoulder. Quick as a flash Jack's right hand goen out with a short Jerk toward Carp's heart, and Georges collides with It a* he comes In. Then the champ steps forward In the second move of his famous "swivel swing" and pumps a left with terrific force Into the challenger's Jaw. Do.wn goes the Frenchman In a lump for the count.

In lain I'nioa, Seattle, and eJaewhere, anst be Junked. It ia Impracticable^ expensive, and moat bt ailUt off aa a war-loaa and fnrrattm Thia la the opinion expreaeef today by Major Jtha K.

"Some of tho wooden ahipa Ml bo used aa Utfit ahipa aims tM Alaskan coast, the Hawaiian eaaaL and our hearer shores." aays Majot Cushion.

TWO BILLION ON SCRAP HEAP So, apparently, the people mosf face the fart that about two bttlloS dollars of their money must CO to the scrap heap—practically a total loea. In the opinion of shipping men on this coast, the cost of upkeep fop such of these wooden ships a* might be converted to light-ship use* would be no greater a* light-ship# than It is at present with the shipa lying In the "graveyard" In the vai* lous bays of the country. The depreciation, say shipping men, of the idle ship is from two t* three times a* much as that of tho operated ship, so to use some of these wooden ship* aa Ught-akipO would reduce depreciation. "Thif wooden fleet," adds Major Cushing, "offers a wonderful field to the man who will apply hlraaeK to the problem and find some prao tical, profitable use for theae ships so they will not be a total loss. 1 * UNFIT FOB TRANS-OCEANIC USE Shipping men say the construction of these ships Is such aa to unfit them for transoceanic trade. Cargo space Is too restricted. The uae ot green timber cause* weaknesses. They have to be caulked too fre quently. They will not make the knotage. The type Is Impracticable. They are too expensive to operate and consume too much fuel. The shipping board has tried to sell them to foreign markets. The foreigners didn't want them. Tho board tried to sell them to Ameri can operators. A few bought—and let the ships go back. • * • Seattle-Built Ship Sends Radio for Aid HALIFAX. N. 8..
