JACK WEARS A JERSEY TO COVER BIG ROLL OF EAT (By United Press Leased Wire.) ILOB ANGELES, April 29.—Now that they have seen Champion JAck Johnson in action, the Los An geles fans are more at sea than ever concerning the outcome of his battle wjth their favorite, Jim Jef fries.

There hasn't been much said nhout the moving pictures of the Jeffries Johnson fight lately. 1 wonder why? Has the picture trust clinched the privilege or have the independent stolen a march on them? Roth trust and inde pendents were talking business .with Sam Berger not long ago In 'Chicago, but nothing definite has been made public. When Jeffries and Johnson signed articles they agreed to Vpllt the receipts of the pictures three way*. Bach fighter was to get one-third of the profits and the promoters were to have the other third. It was stipulated In the agree ment that the fighters would con trol the pictures Apparently the men who make the pictures were net taken Into consideration. It was the clause giving (hem control of the pictures that caused the fighters to accept Richard und GWaou's bid. Ifpej there Isn't a chance in the world for the fighters lo control. The trust has put iv a flat bid for the lectures and the Independent! have made an offer based upon percentage, in reality will in-iug more money to the fighters and promoters than the offer of the trust.

There has been much said to the effect that Jeffries and Johnson will fight 10 or 12 rounds for the benefit of the picture machines be fore trying to put across a knock out. But a statement credited to Jeffries dispels this. Jeffries Is reported to have said: "I'll whip Johnson in three rounds if I can. I dou't intend to waste any time fooling around. The quicker I dispose of him the more money there Is in it for me individually. A quick victory meatis big money on the road, and I can make $100,000 in a few weeks." Good talk. Jeff. The public wants to see a sharp, decisive fight, and the quicker you or your opponent wins the better we will like it. Nothing will so quickly dispose of this talk about a frame-up than a hurry-up finish and stamp out this talk about the fighting game be ing rotten to the core.

Jeff had been posing in various other positions and the posing business was getting very wearisome. He had a good mind to balk and walk away. He didn't say so— Jeff Is a pretty good natured big fellow sfter all, when you get down to rock bottom —but that's what he was thinking about, all right, all right. There was a suspicion of his famous grouch as he fell into a pose for a picture of his famous crotch. The crouch waan't altogether his famous one (you remember Jeff's left, in the crouch is straight out, like a battering ram), but the picture man anapped, before the grouch should get bigger.
