He will start training ; for Willard in sunny California. I Anyone who has watched Demp sey in training will vouch for bis condition and the fact that he has been tlklse good care of himself.

Be h as train ed f ai thfully for this scrap, as it means much to him. It is his second chance at Dempsey. and unless he can give the champion a real battle it will probably he bis last. So he will fight the best he knows bow. As he is a rugged chap, and just as big as the champion, be will be under no physical handicap. TOOI.E.HAS XEW JOB. New Tork. Dec 14.

Dec 14.- For years; and years certain people have wonaerea wny it is tnat good, brainy fighters need managers. For a time we were a bit puzzled our selves. Every once in a while, how ever, the managers' worth comes to the top and we are satisfied that he earns his pittance. For example, take Billy Gibson, manager of Benny Leonard. Our Banna is no dumb bell. He's a wise guy. He can make change for a quar ter without the aid of a lead pencil and in the ring he can do moat any thing. Why does Benca teed Billy? Huh, that's easy. Billy can see more In a minute than Benna can in a week. Billy can see more than the guys in the gallery, too. Billy can see more than all the scribes at the ringside, for that mat ter. He is the SEEI.VG KIND. Take tke WrWiit-LMHrd flRht as aa instance. Meat of us saw Veillag en the floor three times In the ljlh and only O.ME la the 14th rani BlUy saw more than that. Just lamp this tategram that Billy sent to a western paper. He said in part: "Welling, battered unmercifully by the lightweight king, was staggering around the ring absolutely helpless when referee Johnny Haulkop stopped the contest. Eight times in all Welling was knocked down. In the 11th Benny sent him to tbe canvas five times. "Welling, who is as game as they come, crawled to hla feet each time. In the 14th and final session, the Chieagoan was punished fearfully; three times he was dropped, and when he arose, punchdrunk. with his hands at his sides, the referee wisely in tervened."
