THE BRIDGEPORT TIBS Monday, June 6, I9Z1 rtin Nutter Trade Rumors Stir Baseball Circles Ma Dempsey 's Asset Is Kayo Wallop fey JAMBS OORJiETT. FOR3IER HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. Copyright X. X. S.) Taw York, June 6 Jack Dempsey has proven himself a consistent knockerout in his comparatively short career. He has a total of 45 knockouts in 64 fights and in this department of fisticuffs he has proven himself su perior to Georges Carpentier as a quick finisher. The French flash is credited with 34 knockouts out of a total of 85 battles accounted for in the records from 1907 up to date, few of these being scored against h eavy ' weights. Of his fights since he invaded the heavyweight division Ca-rpentier's vic tories over Wells, Becket and Gun : froat Smith and his fine showing , against Joe Jeanette are practically all that can be pointed to, yet in these bouts he proved beyond a doubt that iie is capable of flooring men much (bigger than himself and since he be came champion of Europe he has never yet found a man who could ex tend him more. With this in view it Is ridiculous to attempt to say just how good Georges fur there is no way of telling That he is a great fighter for his weight and inches there can be no doubt. Of Dempsey's victories four or five stand out so far above the others that ffncntion of them in closing my review of Dempsey's career is imperative. Win Over lultoii.

HEX LAYS OSTRICH EGG. 1 San Jose. Cal., June 4. Mrs. A. P. ; Hooe believes that one of her Buff- i Orpington hens has a streaK oi ostnen : gMood in its veins. The hen laid an j measuring Ktx mcnes in arcum- the short space of 23 seconds as was j I'FuRon. Two solid punches of the! avalanche that Dempsey hurled at his man did the work. One was a left hand-er t the liver and the finishing I blow a terrific right hook to the jaw I either of these punches might have finished Fulton but th-ey were deliv ; ertd in rtcpdd suojeession. Fulton, at I that time was a very dangerous man. j lie has always been a terrific left : hand puncher, but he was no match i for Dempsey. In the Wiliard fight Dempsey was j concentrated TNT and better, in all j probability, than he wall ever be again though he is still in the midst of his I prime and has confidence today that i h-e. did not know when he faced Wil iard the confidence that comes with the title. I figured that Jack really had Wil iard out in the first round, as did many an old timer, who thought the co u n t was si o w. One thing is cer -tain, Dempsey won the Wiliard fight in the first round. There was no doubt as to his ultimate victory after that. In the Miske and Brennan fiirhts, Dempsey was in and out of condition. Whets he met Miske. he was himself .and he scored the knockout that the St. Paul battler had staved off on two previous occasions. For Brennan, he was overtrained. but the Brennan flight showed that be has stamina to go over the longer route with a knock o ut pun ch in rese rv e . Today he is in fine condition. His physical form has completely upset tho fears of some erf his friends after the Urcnnan fight that he had started to go back. ed the powerful Su I'M van, however, and enabled Corbett to pick many openings for his attack. As the battle spun along toward its end, the Californian forced Sullivan to takv the defensive. Ke had the champion draped over the ropes when the bell rang at the end of the twen tieth round. In the. next round Sul livan, beaten down by smashing rights and- lefts, tried hard to regain his feet and carry on, but his strength was not equal to his will, and he was counted out. King enthusiasts went to New Or leans from all parts of the country to see the fight. Others came from Mexico and Canada.

Firstbrook The eyes of boxing fans will shift temporarily to Newark tonight where Champion Benny Leonard ami Rocky. Kansas will don the mitts in a 12 round no-decision encounter. Bo-h boxers art- about evenly matched physi cally, although Benny has a slight advantage in reach and height. Owing to the rapid strides of the Kansas boy up the lightweight ladder the outcome of the bout is eagerly awaited. Wiseacres hereabouts entertain the opinion that the champion will win inside of ten rounds. With the Athletics performing; the foot of making scTfii home runs in a single jznme the Albany icam may turn a Hop and win the Easter Lea-me pennant. Never can tell. George Dwyer is trying to figure out which enterprise is the most re numerative nowadays running an eating emporium or making arrangements for local fight shows. Jimmy Snyder, cx-ooxcr and promoter, was not in the Times gallery of sports who aired their opinions on the probable outcome of the Iompsey-Ca.rpeutjor quarrel. Jimmy ts a Dempsey boomer of the strongest typo, and out-sprints all other of the champion's prognostics tors by declaring he will he a surprised individual if Carpentier answers the second call of the gong. "Hush," declared Gene McCann when he was asked to predict the flag winner in the Eastern League. There's no need of a lunacy commission in Bridgeport High athletic circles with the Red and HIack diamond schedule at an end. "vv ith the Worcester Jackmacks here today and tomorrow Bridgeport baseball fans are sure to see some baseball of the ripper-sizzling brand. The first place issue is at hand with a pair of warm sessions in store on the Kewfield diamond. Tim Corbett was one fellow who danced his way to the heavy weight boxing crown.. A "repeater" is about due and that fellah Carpentier may be the chap, alter all. ext to a game of baseball I relish a meal of spaghetti," says Buck Lai, third baseman of the Brown Derbies. MARTIN IS STAR, BUT MAY BE IN TRADE FOR NUTTER By GEORGE E. FIRSTBROOK. Local baseball circles are interested in the rumor that is going the rounds to the effect that Gene Martin, star Brown Denby outfielder, is to be trad ed to the Xiew Haven club, for Ever ett "Joo Xutter. Of course. Gene Mc Cann denies the probability of such a deal, but the story comes from au thoriative sources in the Elm City. Why Geno Martin should be traded off to our millionaire pfnnant rival is a mystery, as the Bronx boy is playins a gilt-edited brand of baseball just now. Of course he is making errors, all star players make them. Some of the weak-kne.ed sports who have enjoyed seeing the Brown Derlbies in the lead for 45 days and nights, and sime of those who travel into Newfteld Park via the Annie Oak ley route, should he elected stockhold. ers of tho .Bridgeport Basehall club, and have their war tax remitted. They ars the guys who are hollering about Gene Martin ""laying down." Martin Out in Front. A glance at yesterday's game shows that Martin hanged out a single and double and came darned near beating out a Ibang to the irafteld in the fifth inning. "Joe" Nutter is a good player, but if a swap is going to take place, "Gene" Martin ehould not be the can didate. There are more "goats" born in Bridgeport than in any other 'burg of the circuit. The. B.D's are in a slump, and Martin is being blamed in some quarters. For the benefit of some fans who have been "knocking" Martin, it might he said that he has been in a uniform tinder physical difficulties for some weeks, having the '"charley horse" in addition to a bad foot Martin is the victim of gross injus tice If the trade goes through for Nutter with Martin, the (bargaining player, there will be a colossal blun der. We say, keep Martin here. Kingdon to Front Kingdon was again in the spotlight with a trio of bingles. Arthur Devlin, Giants scout was again in the press box. Somebody ventured to tell him that Bridgeport has a great team, but he replied "I'm not from Naugatuck." Some of the fans wondered -why Wolfram wasn't substituted for Le Pard, instead of Leasure. Wolfram is laid up with a bad leg. Miller is likely to be the Worces ter twirler today, and Lefty Bennett tomorrow. Andy Meyerjack is in town, but will not get an opportun ity to show his wares on this trip. The one bright thought in yester day's game came in the ninth inn ing. Rodriguez banged out a single to left field; Smith and McLaughlin were easy outs; Kingdon triples, scor ing the Cuban and then some sus pense until Leasure flied out to right field. Local Boxers Getting Ready EiUy Prince and Jimmy Burns, local boxers, are -training daily for t h r b o u ts in Stam f o rd next Wed -npd-iiy night which will be conducted by the Elks lode of the lock city.

Mickey Mack, star -welterweight of the, Wal nut. will fee crosse-d off the card at WilHmantic tonight. Hubbs called the bout off Thursday, declaring that he was not In trim for the fray.

Chain Nine Is Victorious (Special to Times) Hartford. June 6 - A comedy of er rors coupled with a wild' heave by Justin to catch a runner at the plate with the bases loaded enabled the American Chain team of Bridgeport to attain a lead which the Coebill All-Hartfords could not overcome in the game yesterday afternoon at Ex postion park. The score was 10 to 7. It was an off day for the local players, twelve errors being checked up against them before the smoke of the battle had cleared. Hal Justin pitched a brand of ball good enough to win any ordinary game. Poor support, however. rend7 ered his efforts useless. Only six scattered hits were made off his de livery, three of these being of the scratch variety.
