The heart-sock! What is it? Page Jack Dempsey, its keeper. It is fundamentally a blow lev eled just below the heart The effects of this particular kind of a sock produce a wilting sensa tion, a slipping away of interest The hope spark fades from the eye of the bird on the receiving end. All dreams of crowns and big purses peter out. The heart-sock trademark post pones all aspirations of gents who would cop the title and enter the movies for some easy kale. It Got Millard. This was the blow that sent Jess (Willard on his way to defeat at 'ioledo. It took all the fight out of him. He lost heart and interest in'Dempsey's game after he took one. Tbe same thing happened to Billy' Miske when he received this brand of fistic token from Dempsey at Benton Harbor. Miske felt the heart-sock in the first round with the champion. He brought down his guard to the ten der spot and cried out with pain.' Dempsey let him live out the round. Toppled Mlske. ht the second round tbe champion shot the same kind of a blow through, which careened Miske across the ring and down for half the count Having taken all the 6ght out of the challenger the challenger finished the Job in the third round by applying the work manship to Mlske's chin. Thats what the heart-socK ac tually does when applied. It is the most deadly punch ever employed by any fighter. Body MnaMU The old line of punchers may have experimented with it, but they didn't have the dynamite be That's what makes Jack the ring terror. He has found that nothing slows an opponent down quite like a body smafh. When a couple of these are landed the receiver hangs bis jaw over and that s all Demp sey could ask of any man. And Dempsey will be making all the boys eat their crow before an other year if they insist on taking a snine at the heavyweight titie paraphernalia. more rowenui. When Dciapsey made a cripple out of Willard many were, skep tical that it was just one of those incidents that happen once in a life time. It was questionable whether he could pastime in the Sims and then return and 6b o v.- (he same kind of a snclr. Thu state of affaiis no longer exists. Dempsty has fhown that tt there is. any difference in his tac-ti-:s end his power I t months ago and now it is that he is more of a tiger as a champ .us than as a con tender. Like Bambino. If the Salt Lake slammer gets Hi e 'bookings which his manager, Jaik . Kearns, has in mind right now, there'll be a L. :icli of . boys hopping around on nnt-hes he lore another year's I ages have been torn off the calendar. The heart-sock is a sure cure for ambition, hope, dreams, and other forms of malady suffered by birds who covet the throne which Demp sey has dust ot. Like Alan o War and Babe Kutn he has no more worlds to conquer that is, the whole pack of con tenders look like rank setups any way you measure them. Camden, N. J, Sept 11. (United Press.)

Sterling has been signed up to play the Islanders, Nov. 6, at Ster ling. This date comes between the Davenport and Moline games and should give the locals a little rest as the Sterlingites are not expected to have a whirlwind team. Manager Clark is dickering with Aledo for the other open date on the high school schedule. Sept 25. This will be a good game to put the squad in condition. Some doubt is expressed whether a game can be scheduled with Aledo on that date as there will be no school there dur ing fair week. If Sept 23 is filled there remains only one open date on the Islanders' 11-game schedule. This is on Thanksgiving day and the custom has been in the past to leave this date open until near the end of the season, as was done last year. The squad was run through an other hard scrimmage last night and it was 6 o'clock before the teams returned to the dressing room. Before the battle with the second team, signal drill was held. Only simple plays have been tried yet and it is believed that noth ing "fuzzy" will be attempted until after the' alumni game. CHICAGO FANS GET LAST 1920 CHANCE TO SEE BAMBINO RUTH Chicago, Sept 11.
