LUST WEEK OF
( Jess Gets Real Cocky About His
Don't Take Contender Seriously
Several of Last Season's
Best Junior Athletes Can
PRACTICE TO WIN
WITH the Junior Y. M. C A. taex
athlon finals only a week dis
tant, physical director A. U Holm ia
calling all Junior athletes to hard
practice. The finals will be held to
the local T gym from Monday,
March IT, to Monday, March 31.
With only one week left for prac
tice the "T" physical force is much
perturbed in spirit The new mate
rial and some of the old timers are
getting Into the game with all of
their energy, bat there Is a tendency
on the part of some of the old timers
to rest on the laurels won last year.
It will be remembered that the El
Paso boys won the international
championship in class B last spring
against a mighty strong field, bat
there were some big fellows In the
Kl Paso ranks who are now over the
18 year limit which will make a big
difference in the total scores.
Amonjr those who were placed
en the team last year and who
did fine work but are Ineligible
this year are Dawaon Bryan,
Manny Ponsford. W. Caple. Wag
ner Dawson, M. Webb. P. Cor
dova and G. Sellsman, of the un
limited weight class.
In the 125 ponnd class R. Scot ten
and D. Bryan are both out. and many
of the other former members have
failed to report for practice.

NEW YORK. March 19 Jess wn
Iard does not take Jack Dempsey
The big cowboy champion has all
the confidence In the world In his
size and his ability to take care of
his crown against any man.
When he met Tex Rlckard In Chi
cago recently he pooh-poohed Derap
sey's chances of uncrowning him on
July A. and he seems to be absolutely
on the level with It.
Willard's attitude is not surprising.
What's more. It has created greater
speculative interest in the coming
bout than anything else could pos
sibly have done, and the fans who in
tend to occupy seats around the ring
. . fin-ino- that tbcv are aoing to
I see a real battle while it lasts.
According to Willard. Dempsey will
be a mere baby in his hands- He
doesn't care how many big fellows
the size of Fred Fulton and Carl Mor
ris have been flattened by Dempsey.
The F nitons and Morrises are not
considered dangerous at all by the
big cUamplon. He believes that he
could have flattened them easier than
also lost valuable men. among whom
are F. Lacarra and Ben Edwards.
These Can TIclp.
The following boys who scored on
last year's teams and are still in
town can do a lot for the "Y" and El
Paso by getting Into these final prac
tices and doing their best to keep m
Paso on the athletic map:
A. March. G. Priest. K. Stevens. W.
Howe. R. Ktrcher. J. Hambleton. J.
Coley, B. Burke. W. Cummlngs, C.
Greene, J. Moore. H. McGinnls. D.
Farnsworth. R. Stewart. A. Uhltg. G.
Cross, J. Seegal. J. Meers, W. Gilson.
Every one of these old timers Is
expected to call on physical director
Holm and assure him that they will
get into this final week of practice.
Dempser did. and he sas he's -out
to win that SluO.WO purse .n . -time
and keep his title alons w.'tt r
But with all of big Jess's con
fidence It would be well for him
to remember that It Is a wise
champion wbo concedes some
thing to the man who Is trying to
grab hi skypleee. If It is noth
ing more than a lucky chance.
Willard should remember tha
Stanley Ketch el. who weighed ajojt
17s pound, dropped the massive c
Johnson with a terrific wallop on e
Jaw when they met in the arena at
Colma. Johnson outweighed Kfctcbel
by e pounds or more and towere
above him to boot. It has been sal !
that Ketchel's knockout of Johnson
was flaky, and all that but close ac
quaintances of the big smoke i-a.d
that he wasn't able to chew his food
for more than a week after Ketone'
hit him. And Johnson said the same
Training Will Tell.
Whether or not Willard has any
respect for Dempsey will be broo1"
out by the manner In which he trains
for the big fight. He intimates that
be Is going to be in grand condition,
and If be works hard for Derapsev
Just paste a note In your hat that he
does respect the Salt Lake slasher,
contentions to the contrary.
On the other hand. If Willard
content to go along lazily with r!
training and merely take off fat that
would look bad If he carried it Into
the ring, you can be sure that h
either feels safe against the challen
ger's best efforts or that he mere!:
wants to collect that 11W.0OO purse
and the title be hanged.
But If Willard Is a wise bird ar-fl
he hasn't been given to maklnsr boon
plays, despite the fact that tie has
made unpopular moves he will h,a
"there" when be crawls through th
ropes to face Jack KearnsTs protege
If he ever lets himself get cauRht of
form with the youthful Dempser. It
be payday In short order.

hire no umpire until ApriL T have
signed them before in February,
said Walter, "and they would come
flocking in here with the plea that
they were broke. They would start
to borrow and run accounts that I
would have to pay. I am not going
to onng one or tnem here until just
before the season opens. Somebody
else can have the pleasure of feeding
