How I Won And How
I Lost '-Told By Dempsey
and Carpentier
Dempsey says, Nuxated Iron used by him as part of his
training was in his opinion an important factor, of his
phenomenal victory over Carpentier as he believes it materi
ally helped to give him that mighty power to withstand
Carptntier's hardest hits and that it also helped to put
addea punch behind his own blows.
the Ag?
, In the great flg-ht Carpentier hit Dempsey
; itn swift powerful blows that bad the speed
; of ffun fire. The yelling mob saw bim land
: bis famous right on Dempsey 's jaw, yet
Dempsey never flinched but relentlessly he
tore arter tne fTencnman with his old np-J
rinc punches on head, body and jaw until
Carpentier quickly weakened and then
another powerful punch and aura in Demosev
showed himself to be the superman of the
asre the greatest Champion the world has
ever known.
The London Daily Mail, of July 4th, quotes
Carpentier as saying Dempsey is the most
powerful man I have ever met in the ring:. He
is incredibly strong. To bit bim is like hitting
a mountain. To take his punches is like feeling
the wallop of an avalanche. If I were asked
what lead to my defeat, I wonld say the
two tremendous blows Dempsey landed on
the nape of my neck. I was not the same'
after that."
Dempsey says, I feel I won through greater
power, endurance, lighting skill and strategy.!
I took Carpentier s hardest blows on my chin
and while they knocked me back they did
not daze me, in the least. I am sure Carpentier
bas not the endurance to stand the hard
blows 'that I can stand, neither has he the
. strength to deliver them. I understand his
methods of training are entirely different
from mine. While I believe in scientific box
ing still I never lose sight of the important:
fact that other things being equal it is the
man who has the greatest strength, power
and endurance that is going to win. In build
ing up these three most important things
there is nothing like filling your blood with
good old strength-giving iron. In preparing
tor my great fight with Willard I used
Nnx&ted Iron as part of my training, and I
felt that it was such benefit to me that after
wards I used it, whenever I felt I was not
quite up to the mark, to help restore my
strength, energy and vigor; and when I
commenced training for my fight with
Carpentier. the supreme test of my life
I again took Nuxated Iron and
smrfy '
r . k, Trr- aH-l
believe it was an im
portant factor in help
ing me to win so easily
my great victory and I
would advise people
who are in a weakened
condition to try this
wonderful strength
and blood builder."
hen a man
strong and physically
fit as Dempsey uses
Nuxated Iron, how
much more important
is it that thousands
and thousands of others
who so greatly lack
physical strength,
power and endurance.
should avail them
selves of its benefits.
Nuxated Iron not only
contai ns strengthen i ng
organic iron for the
purpose of enriching
the blood but it also
contains the principal
chemical constituents
of active living nerve
force in a form wjiich
most nearly resembles
that in the brain and
nerve cells of man so
that Nuxated Iron may
be said to be both a
blood and a nerve food.
If through worry, over
work, constant ner
vous strain, grief or too much excitement
your blood has become impoverished and your
nerve force exhausted, you will find that a
short course of Nuxated Iron will often pro
duce most surprising results. It has been used
and highly endorsed by former United States
Senators, Members of Congress. Judges of
of United States Courts and many prominent
people; even Home having highly endorsed
its use. It is now being used by over 4,000,000
people annually.
Jack Kearns
Manager for Dempsey
Jack K. earns, Dempsey Mana
ger, says: "Knowing what Nux
ated Iron had done for Dempsey
in the Willard fight I strongly in
sisted that he use this wonderful
strength and bloods builder as a
part of his training for the fight
with Carpentier, and I believe it
was an important factor in build
ing up Dempsey's superhuman
strength, power and endurance
which were such important fac
tors in winning his easy "victory.
Maotttactohers Kotb: Fmn the above article
the reader most not infer that Nuxated Iron will
make a giant in strength or a world's champion out
of the average man: bat Naxated Iron will greatly
increase the red blood corpuscles and by so doing in
crease your strength, power and endurance, and
BTtppty increased nerve force to the starving nerve
cells. "Yoa can try Nuxated Iron on oar absolute
guarantee that if it does not increase your strength.

Crippled Girl Sends
Open Letter To Lake
On Bill He Vetoed
bellowing is an open letter to Gov
ernor Lake. The writer is Alice M.
"White, daughter of Rev. Ralph H.
White, of Bridgeport.
Alice is a badly crippled girl, 16
years old. Her appearance before
the Educational Committee of the
.Legislature in behalf of the Crip
pled Children Bill was much com
mented on by the Press throughout
the stalte. '
As a result of her clear .and force
ful presentation of the difficulty that
confronts a lame boy and more es
pecially a lame girl in getting to
school.) 1the committee voted imme
diately and unanimously to recom
mend the bill for passage.
Alice made a careful study of lame
children legislation in other states
and impressed the committee by her
knowledge and ability. She estimalt
d that the bill would help 5(M) lame
children in -this state.
... She was afflicted with infantile
rparalyais 11 years ago and her life
has been a hard struggle. Two
years she- spenlt on a traction frame,
fine has had serious major opera
tions, followed my months of con
finement in a solid, complete body,
plaster cast. With the help of re
inforced corsets, hip splints and
crutches, she is able to drag herself
nround for a short distance on level
floors'. . .
A.liee graduated from the Bridge
port High school, last June complet
ing the College Preparatory Course
cum laude, In 8 1- 2years insteadof
the usual four, despite the fact that
sickness and bad weather kept her
out ax least a quarter of the time and
for one complete half term.
She was taken to and from school
In""a wheel chair.
Alice's pluck and cheerfulness
made her popular in the jhool.
She is an accomplished musician a
leader in social life, and active in
church work. , .
Her two ambitions are to complete
n .college course, and to help other
handicapped children.
To Gov. Everett J. Lake, .
Capitol Building. ,
Hertford. Conn.
Dear Governor Lake:
t rooivwi ' vour recent
which you state that you were corn
relied to veto House Bill 701-4, An
Act to Provide Transportation for
Crippled Children to and from
BCIam grieved and shocked at your
action and -at the reason you give
when you say "While there are many
places where the application of this
law would have been advantageous,
the total amount involved is much
lirger than the present financial con
dition of the state could stand.
Permit me to remind you of the
long and almost inhuman neglect by
the state of its lame children. All
normal children ana all -landicapped
children are freely provided with
the opportunity for education except
the lame. The state is ready to
spend from $400 to $600 per year
tn any blind or deaf child to .provide
him with adequate training to suc
ceed in life. The delinquent and the
teeble minded are provided for. Only
the lame child is permitted and often
compelled to grow up in ignorance.
The normal child who lives teyond
walking distance is earned to the
ichool house, no matter how far it
mav be, nor how much it may cost.
Dnly the crippled child who cannot
Kalk, is overlooked.
The bill asked only eimple Justice
The bill had only to be fairly put
before the educational committee or
the legislature to be unanimously
recommended for passage. Both
nouses passed it without a dissent
Ins vote and then you take your
itand squarely in the middle of the
road to the school house, the only
path of hope to the lame child and
ly your veto say, I forbid."
Do you know, dear Governor, that
his state is officially responsible for
thee rippled condition of some of
thee rippled condition of some of
leprive of an education?
Five years ago there occurred the
fcifantile paralysis epidemic. The
Itupid, futile and brutal quarantine
legulations of the state and local
toards of health directly caused
nanv unnecessary deaths and in
creased the number of those who
rere left crippled by the disease.
There is no specific treatment for
letter in
any doctor or hospital can do for the
disease in its first stages that
amounts to much. The absolute
things that the child must have, the
oniy ining mat surely counts, are
rest, peace of mind, quiet, sleep and
nourishment to assist nature while
she is developing her own antitoxin
to check the attack.
The worst thing that can hannm.
for it is a disease of the nervous sys
tem, is fright or shock, yet these
poor victims were forcibly removed
irom tneir loved ones and taken, in
a state of terror, to the various pest
As a result, the enidemlo. regis
tered twice the usual dealh rate and
iniury was done to many others that
can never be atoned for.
Infantile paralysis is not, in the
ordinary sense of the term, a con
tagious disease. It does not respond
in the slightest degree to any known
kind of quarantine. There is abso
lutely nothing that mas been discov
erea that will prevent or check an
epidemic of it.
I could forgive the health officials
who were responsible for the ban
ibarous things that ithey did, if they
had been ignorant, but they knew
that there was absolutely nothing
that they could do. The people were
wild with panic, they demanded that
they "do something," so they mad
believe that they knew and treated
the epidemic as if St were conta
gious. In order to magnify their of
fice, they did those cruel things.
May I remind you of how nearly
friendless we lame children are. The
State Board of Education has nb
nrosrram for us. no knowledge con
cerning us . and apparently no inter
est in us.
The recent Child Welfare Commis
sion although it took two years for
its Investigations and spent $10,000,
had nothing to present in its report
concerning lame children.
It is only because tew Know ana

to make this protest instead of some
influential citizen. v
I do not wish to seem harsh but I

to ask some very plain questions.

Let me ask again what you are
willing that the state should do for
the rest of the lame children who are
not "paupers nor indigent" and who
are unwilling to be classed a3 such,

has several splendid institutions for

lame children and unsurpassed or

ments could be made, and backed by
facts, concerning Pennsylvania and
many other progressive states.
