To 'ogash Demands $2,500 Guarantee To Fight Delaney Louis Bogash and his manager, Joe Smith, are not over-enthusiastic over the possibility of a match with Jack Delaney, the local middleweight, both entertaining doubts that such a bout would prove a luring bait to fight fans.

NAVY FAVORITE IN REGATTA CLASSIC Poughkeepsie, June 22 The Navy crew reigns as favorite to win today's intenoollegiete regatta. Wherever ent h usiasts of raoi ng gath ered t h r words Navy and Columbia were most prominently mentioned, with Cali fornia and Cornell being occasionally heard. Columlbia has come back strong in the final moments before the race and will now enter the lists on a par with Glendo's crew. Cornell has it back ers, but they are forced to point to the glorious past rather than to any thing the Ithacans have accomplish ed this year. Caifornia. is scarcely considered for first place, although it is reported that none other than Glendon thinks the Bears will finish second. It is on Prank Brodil, stroke of the Blue and White varsity, that the bur den of pulling his crew home to vic tory will fall. It will take more than mere form or power to win the short three mile race. Course gen LEAGH CROS IN COM New York, June 22 -Leach Cross came back last night, winning the de cision over Gene Oelmont in a fast bout. Cross weighed 135 1-2 pounds and Delmont 133.

If Bro dil is forced to raise the stroke in the early stages of the race, however, all may not go so well with the wonder ful Blue and White eight. Yale Eights in Iead ITesit. New London, June 22 Tale's var sity and freshman eights had a mile race up stream last night and it was a battle royal to the finish, the 1924 eight practically holding the big crrew all the way, and it appeared to be a dead heat at the finish. A half hour previous to Yh-le's brush Harvard's freshman and com bination crews had a scrap also for a mile up strearrffthe yearlings giving the combination eight two boat lengths start and beating them out by half a boat length in 5:09.

This announcement was made by Joseph Cassidy, secretary of the com- miineii. wno ueciarea ic was iourw ai an Informal conference of the com mission yesterday that Ertle was sat I isfasctoxy to ail parties concerned. Local baseball fans are in high glee over the improved status of the Brown Derbies. Yesterday, at Albany, the McCann squad continued its win ning habit. It is hoped that the good work will continue. Harvard rowing has been put on a new basis this year throngh the in stitution of a freshman policy, Dr. R. Heber Howe, coach of the Crimson freshman crew, told classmates at a reunion of the class of 1 ri 0 1 . Coming up from the Crimson rowing camp at Red Top. on the Thames river, he brought word first hand from the Harvard crews that will meet Yale at Now London on Friday, and said that if present prospects were fulfilled Crimson varsity crews hereafter would benefit from the fact that many of the fresh man class would be in shells each spring. '"We are trying to work out freshman rowing as a human problem." said Dr. Howe. "The intention is to have not one crew, but many: to have every one interested and to have them go out for rowing because it is good exer cise and offers a good time. It is in this way that we have started this yi;ir to increase the usefulness of freshman rowing as an auxiliary to the univer sity department of hygiene." Dr. Howe, coach of successful crews at Middlesex School. Concord, for many years since he was an oarsman at Harvard, was brought to Cambridge this year to install the new system. Tim Hendryx, right fielder of the Red Sox, today began enforced vaca tion caused by a broken finger. A high fly from the bat of Bob Muesel in yesterday's game snapped the little finger of his right hand. Some time ago the New York Boxing Commission decided that a man seventy years or older was too blind to judge a boxing match, and ruled that no kid who had reached seventy could judge. The Boxing Commission allowed some of the judges, not only blind, but incompetent, to pick winners. There have been some fearful decisions. The judges might as well have been at home as at the ringside. They were rotten. William Muldoon. who has watched the champs from Sullivan right along wasn't good enough for the old commission. The other day Governor Miller appointed William Muldoon chairman and boss of the Boxing Board. The man who wasn't allowed to be a judge is now THE BOSS. DEMPSEY LARRY Atlantic City, N. J., June 22 Selec tion of Harry Ertle as referee of the world's heavyweight championship contest between Jack Dempsey and Georges Carpentier, at Jersey City, July 2. is entirely satisfactory to Dempsey. The champion expressed this opin ion today when he advised that Jos eph Cassidy, secretary of the New Jersey Boxing Commission, would of ficially announce the selection of Ertle before night. Dempsey, how ever, had not discussed the situation with Jack Kearns, his manager, as Kearns had not returned from New York. Dempsey said he had full confi dence in any decision that Kearns madfl in regard to the choice of the third man in the ring. "So it's Ertle, is it " Dempsey said. "Well, that's good enough for me if it suits Kearns. Kearns does the managing and I try- to do the fight ing. Any referee that is experienced is acceptable and I feel sure that Ertle is competent. "I can truth fully say th is, I hon estly do not care who is in there to referee. That s up to Kearns. It wouldn't make any difference to me if Descamps refe-reed. 1 think Car pentier fe-els the same way about the referee question a I do." Divorce Suit worries. DemDscy is more concerned over the report that he has .been named as co-respondent in a divorce suit at Pawhuska, Okla., than he is over the referee controversy. Today he in structed his attorney, Ray J. Cannon, of Milwaukee, to investigate and start suit for libel if necessary against F R, Boulanger, who, in his petition for a divorce, named Dempsey. Can non telegraphed for a certified copy of the complaint to determine if the charges were the same as reported in press dispatches. "Dempsey is no home-wreoKer ana this thing has upset him," Cannon said. "He doesn't even know any body In Pawhuska and never has written to anybody there." Larry Wl Ilia ms Ivao y ed . There will be some real glove fight ing at Dempsey's camp from now on until the end of the training. The champion gave indications of this yesterday when he knocked out Lar ry Williams. who, heretofore, has ; managed to assimilate, ail or the I champion's punches. Dempsey tore j into Williams savagely, flooring him j in th-e first minute of their workout, recovered, from the effects of the HITTING THE SPORT TRAIL With Geo. E. Firstbrook KAYOES WILLIAMS knockdown, Dempsey knocked him out. Battling Ghee is on his way back to his home in Memphis, Tenn., to day. .Ghee left a much sadder but wiser man. He faced the sunburned I Dempsey twice and hopes he'll never tace him again. The first time the Memphis negro was on the floor three times and had two teeth knocked Joose. In his second and last ap pearance Ghee was so badly fright ened that he spent all of the time in retreat- More Carpentier Assistants. Ma nhasset, N. Y., June 22 Mys terious things occurred this morning at Georges Carpentier's training camp and when an explanation was requested the answer came i n a whisper: "Shhh; It's a secret and we cannot tell." About S o'clock a big limousine stopper at the front gatr and the chauffeur hailed Trainer Wilson ;ini the latter came down and opened thf: gate. Th e mach i n pull ed inside and three heavyweights stepped from it . To conef-al th-ir Identity they pulled their coat collars about their faces and ran into the residence.
