Joe Smith 's Two Base Slam Brings Victory To Bridgeport
Congressman Aims
To Stop Big Bout
A move is on in Congress to register a knockout sock
on the Carpentier and Dempsey championship battle.
Leading the fight is ' Congressman "Jimmy" Gallivan,
who is remembered in the realms of collegiate sport as
Harvard's former football star, now a Representative
irom tne .Bay state.
Bogash Money

Are Lou Bogash's friends getting: a
die sny in placing their mazuma on
the local boxer to defeat "Soldier"
Bartfield in their coming- fifteen round
bout at the Sate street arena. Mon

Gallivan's action finds the support
of the bis" majority ofl American
X.fion men and members of other
veteran's organizations in Bridgeport
and elsewhere. A prominent mem
ber of the American Legion stated
bis opinion in no uncertain tones on
the big fight today, when he declared:
'The American Legion made a
hameful mistake -when it took no
concerted action to have this fellow
Dempsey, who has been stamped as
' a 'slacker," barred from taking part
in the light. I am disgusted with the
Leigion leaders and cannot under
stand their spiritless action in the
matter. I count myself as good an
American as anyone, having? went
through some of the hardest fighting
in Eurotpe, while this prize fighting
guy was laying around home and en
joying life away from danger when
Tto should have been over tlere doing
his bit instead of being a shirker,
and I want to say I always stick up
for Americans and want to see them
win in sports as well as be on the
t-o-p in everything they undertake
leut I hope Carpentier will give this
guy Dempsey a (J d good, licking."
Settle Bonus First.
Settle the bonus before the fight is
Gallivan's plea to his fellow Con
gressmen. The Gallivan measure
states that millions of Americans
have been waiting for action by
Congress to solve tfrie question of ad
justed compensation and that the
millions otf dollajrs that the cham
pionship fight will cost the American
puiblic could be devoted to this pur
pose. Gallivan in support of his
Tesolution said:
"The millions which the Dempsey -Carpentier
fight will cost the Ameri
can public copld very easily be de
voted to adjusting the pay of the real
fighting men, namely, the young
cbaps who went into the army and
navy of this country in the recent
World War. It is a notorious fact
that Dempsey showed himself to be a
big 'bum' in that war when he dodged
the draft, and unless I mistake,
France was in distress and had been
fighting for months before Carpentier
joined the colors of his country. After
he did get into a. uniform, it is alleged
he did good service, but my mind goes
back to the early davs of the war.
when he was engaged in fighting, as a
prizefighter for money.
. Slap At Fight Fans.
"The men who will pay ?50 for a
ringside seat to look at these two
fighters' overwhelmed members of
the last Congress with their letters of
protest against . paying a mere pit
tance of a soldiers' bonus to real
champions. It would not have cost
these men individually $50 to have
helped meet the cost of a soldiers'
bonus bill, but they are willing to pay
that much and more because of travel
and hotel expenses, etc., to see these
men gather in about $1,000,000 pum
melling one another. I am for the
soldier boy, and until this bonus bill
is passed I think that the Wall Street
broker, and the steel magnate from
Pittsburgh and the Chicago banker,
who helped defeat the soldiers' bonus
bill in the last Congress, should be
deprived of what they consider the
greatest pleasure of their lives.
"I shall certainly press for the pas
sage of my resolution. It is unneces
sary for me to state that I have been
intensely active in athletics, includ
ing boxing, all my life, and that I do
attend genuine boxing matches when
ever I get an opportunity. But I am
opposed to this international bout on
American soil, where millions of
American money are to be wasted,
until the American service men and
women have been fairly treated by
the American government."
Dempsey -Carpentier Battle Will
Break All The Records For Gate
Receipts In History Of Pugilism
New York. June 11 Tex Rickard, who has made the greatest financial
successes of boxing bouts in the history of the game, will break his own rec
ord at Jersey City, July 2, when he presents Georges Carpentier and Jack
Dempsey in the "Battle of the Century". The big fight is expected to draw a
"Million Dollar Gate". The receipts may go ever the million mark. FoUow
ing is a list a the' largest gate receipts in American ring history:
to was obliged to return to the me
tropolis with his GOO bucks intact.
"I was- under the impression Bridge
port sports were ready to back cheir
favorite son to the limit, but I could
not place a single dollar. I heard a
lot of 'harping among some of them
That Bogash and his manager, Joe
Smith, are counting on a sure win
against Bartfield. If they still enter
sain this belief they will have the
privilege of backing up their whims
with cash, for I will be back Monday
and can be found at the Stmtfieki be
tween 3 and 6 p. m., ready to produce
my cash. I am willing to have any
reputable sporting man in Bridgeport
hold the money, Connie bewis or
Frit Mueante, for instance. They will
suit me."
Joe Smith Speaks Back.
Joe Smith, when apprised of Kelly's
visit with his cash, declared he is
anxious to .talk business with him and
Is willing to wager a substantial sum
that Bogash will lick the Xew Yorker.
"Kelly would never have returned to
New York without betting that $600
if I had seen him," declared Joe with
a fiery gleam in his eye. "I'd like to
know where ho gets off in offering -to
1 that Bartfield will win before the
limit?" added Joe.
That Bogash-Dclaney Go.
The item in last night's Times stat
ing that Louis Bogash would not
balk at a fight with Jack Delaney
has brought Al Jennings to his feet.
DelanevJs. manager sends the follow
ing letter in which he sfates Delaney
is also favorably disposed toward a
ibout. The letter follows:
"According to yesterday's Times
Louie Bogash made a statement that
he would go out of his class to
face Jack Delaney, so here goes to
exfplode the nitro which should bring
Bogash and Delaney together. Bogash
don't have to so out of his class for
according to his weights in the Wal
ter Laurette and Jim Montgomery
contests he is a genuine middle
weightweight, so the difference be
tween Delaney and Bogash would be
ounces not pooinds.
"The International Boxing Rules
which are recognized the world over,
state the middleweight limit is 160
pounds eight hours toefore contest
takes place. Well, Delaney can make
that weight and you can rest assured
that no 'boxing contest put on in the
city of Bridgeport would draw a
larger crowd of fight fans. I also
wish to state that Bogash and his
followers can get all the money they
can scrape together! covered on the
outcome of that contest.
"Delaney is to box either Jackie
Clark or Johnnie Howard on June IS
at the Queenshoro Sporting Club of
Bong Island City. So I hope Bogash
wins from Bartfield on June 20. In
case he loses Delaney is willing to
box Bartfield or any other middle
weight, -bar none.
"Al Jeninngs, Mgr. of Delaney."

With Geo. L Firstbrook
Fight promoters of the olden days never suffered the pain heaped upon
mem oy tiie teem oi tne law as Messrs. Rickard, Dempsey and Carpentier
are enduring today, and is all caused by the rakeoff Uncle Sam will get off
the impending battle.
Figure ex perls have it down m black and white that Dempsey
will pay an income tax for S300.000, catting the champion's divvy
to $161,270. Carpentier's share when exemptions for wife and child
are deducted will receive S93.334, which means that Fncle Sam will
collect approximately $254,(50 to $245,3U6 by the boxers.
In addition to this the states of New York will receive about $100,000
each by the amusement tax, extracted from the fight management. And vet.
the financial dopesters are trying to believe that Rickard and his partners
will divide about $100,000.
These figures almost put the alleged profits of some of the war
industrial plants out of sight.
Tad, ( noted cartoonist and ring expert, has faied to chronicle Bouis
Bogash in his recent discovery of the early vocation of leading boxers. Be
fore Tad speaks it proper to repeat that "Looey" once upon hustled as a pin
boy in Connie Lewis' bowling alleys. Tad follows:
John Tj. Sullivan was an unknown tinsmith when he started
boxing. Jim Corbet a poorly paiil bank elerk, Jim Jeffries a boiler
maker. Bob Fitzsiminons a blacksmith, Stanley Ketchel a waiter.
Jack Dempsey a minor and hobo, Jack JJritton sold hot dogs and
candy, alike O'Dowd was a telegraphic linesman.
Jack Johnson wielded a whitewash brush, Jess Willard was a
cowboy. Al Neil was a sign painter. Jimmy Britt was a hook keener.
Joe Walcott was a coal stoker on a boat; Jack Dampsey ((he non
areil) was a cooper and wrestler, Carentier was a circus performer,
Jimmy Wilde was a miner, Jem Driscoll was a pressman. Tom Shar
key a deck scrubber on a man-of-war. Fetor Jackson was an oars
man, Joe Cans was an oyster opener in Baltimore. Young Griffo
was a longshoreman. Abe Attell was a messenger boy, and all the
other great hauler came from the same humble vocations of life-

"With this pleasant greeting- from
Trainer Gus Wilsn, I invaded Car
pentier's training- camp Friday and
watched him box in private for the
first time.
I found the French champion lolling-
on the lawn in front of his cozy
quarters with Joe Jeannette, Paul
Journee and Italian Joe Gans. I
sat down and talked with them for
a time as the hour for training had
not arrived.
Georges' sparring patrners, with
the exception of Jeasvnette, knew
me, for they had been told I was
com'ing. Jeannette was not wise to
it and he did not recognize me with a
pair of heavy rimmed gfassea on.
"Don't quite make me, eh. Joe ?
J asked. "Maybe you'll remember
who was fhe champ-ion croquet player
off H-arlem at one time? roes that
tip you off?"
Joe sat and looked hard hut Car
pentier could wait no longer.
"Oh, Joe." he said, "you should
know Jim Corbett, yes ?"
And the laugh was on Jie.
Corbett Is Impressed.
Carpentier told me of his training
routine and later went through his
regular program, just as he does in
private. I was very much impressed
and consider it quite a compliment,
because, first of all. Georges is a
fellow who hates to work in public
I know how ho fee-Ts about it- If I
was working in France for a fight
like that of July 2. 1 would feel the
same way.
Wh en 3 o el ook arrived Geo rges
skipped nimfbly into the house and
got into his working togs. He came
out dressed in ring attire and a long
bath rotoe and we all walked hack
to the barnj There he took off his
robe and I saw him strd piped for
action for the first time. I was agree
ably surprised at everything I saw.
Georges is built Like the ideal ath
lete, his shoulders, arm and leg de
velopment is wonderful. He is not
a Hercules. Instead he is built like
a fine thoroughbred horse. He is
nothing like Demipsey, who is bigger
and more rugged. Thi; fellow Car
pentier is bruit for speed and believe
me. he has it.
Georges punched the bag, skipped
the rope, worked on the pulleys,
s-Ioigg-ed the heavy bag, went through
gymnastic stunts and boxed with
Journee, Jean nette and Gans. He
went aifter his work with a good will
and worked irp a perspiration that
made hi s ski n gl o w.

Of course I know that a man cant
always cut loose and hurt his sparring
partners. He wouldn't have them
long if he did. And Georges did not

Carp is more aggressive than I was.
When he cuts loose he is quick,
snappy and a good slugger. Of course
