BY BOB PIGUE. AMMY STRANG'S Chatta nooga Lookouts showed a puiu'h like that of Jack Dempspy in" Monday's dou ble affair at Kusswood, and gae the Chicks a twin heating; bffore a good week day congregation of bugs who had assembled in tne beiief that the Chicks would have an easy time taking the measure of the 'hattanoogans. who, hy the way, are the tailenders at present. The opening affair went the full nine rounds, while the wlndup contest trav eled to the seventh, where it was halt ed, much to the relief of the fans In the stands, who are far from gluttons for punishment. l'addy Lohman and Rube Marshall pitched the Lookouts to victory in the two affairs, while Tiny Goodbred and Eddie Foster get credit In the lost column. Both games were frazzled affairs, with poor baseball sharing honors with poor umpiring. Vmpire (?) Shibley, or rather alleged Vmpire Shibley, had a big part In losing the first game for the Chicks, giving several putrid decisions. Lou Christenbury, Chick shortBtnlth, gave vent to a two-base wild heave In the ninth frame of the first game which cost the winning run. The. two clubs entered the ninth with the score stand ing 2-2. Griffith, Chattanooga out fielder, hit a hopper to Chris, who threw the pill about 20 feet over Grif fin's head, Griffith taking second. Nl derkorn put Griffith on third with a sacrifice, and Kelly came through with a single to right, which brought Griff over with the winning run. In the ninth for Memphis, Dixie Carroll was called out by alleged Umpire Shibley on strikes, despite the fact that one of the pitches he culled a strike was a mile outside. The Lookouts got out In front early and in the second Inning scored a run. With one gone, Manda made a bail throw to first on Demoe's grounder, emoe taking second, and scoring on Griffith's single to center. In the third Lohman was safe on Christenbury's mmoie and Gleason, after vainly try lng to sacrifice, singled to right, Loh man taking second. Graff bunted the two ( hattanoogans up a notch and Nci derkorn scored Lohman with a single. The Lookouts were easy until the ninth, when Christenbury's error gave them the game. The Tribe tied the score in the third. With one gone, Bischoff hit a grounder iu uieason ami iook tnii'a wnen Liieason threw the ball over first base. Oood bred whiffed and Christenbury tripled to right, Bischoff soring. Christen bury scored on Barger's single to right The Chicks threatened several times during the latter rounds, but were un able to score on Lohman. Second Game. In the second affair the Lookouts nuncned hits off Foster in the fifth and sixth innings, scoring two runs in each round, more than enough to win. Nothing of interest happened till the fifth, when Anderson singled to center ana was loreed at second by Kelly. Marshall whiffed and Gleason singled to right, Kelly taking second, Olauon stole second. Graff singled to center ana ivelly and Gleason reg Htered. In the sixth Bratchi singled off Manda's shins, and JJemoe fouled out to Griffin Griffith was tossed out by Lewis. An derson singled to left, scorinir Bratchi Kelly's double to right scored Ander son. The Tribe had a tough time with Hube Marshall. In the seventh the only run the locals managed to get off Ilube was coined. Manda lifted to Griffith ana ciscnoit singled otf ivmoe. Can- avan tiaued lor Foster and hoisted t Bratchi. Christenbury doubled to right center and Barger singled to center Bischoff scoring. Carroll was tossed out ny uieason to end the game. There was a good Monday crowd in U1Q fliunus.

TOTING i BOB PIGOE UESDAY brsnd new Tribesman, Bud Mercer by name, who halls from Ps ducah, Ky., from whence Dixie Carroll and George Block come, will join the the Chicks In Nashville, and will probably be In the ooener between the Vols and Chicks. Mercer is an Inflelder and usually plays at short or second base. It Is more then likely that Bud will be used at short and that Lou Christenbury will be returned to the outfield, replacing Chief Cy Barger, who will again become a pitcher. Cy has been filling In at right field for the past several names. Christenbury has already convinced ever ran in Memphis as well as the Memphis officials that he Is not an In. fielder, and when he Is In the Infield, there Is slways a gaping hole, as was In evidence Monday, when Chattanooga won two games from Memphis, the first one entirely on errors by the Memphis Infield. The acquisition of Mercer Is expected to prove valuable to the Tribe, and with Christenbury back in the outfield and with the club getting Cy Barger's pitching, the local stock should take a brace. A message from Block stated that Skin Griffin, another ball player sought by Block on his trip to Paducah, has Just arrived in the United States from overseas, and would probably Join the Tribe as soon as he got his discharge. WORSE AND WORSE. In the first Memphis-Chattanooga game' the Tribe erred three times. Kach time an error was made a run resulted. Three runs were sufficient to win the ball game, as the Tribe could only get to Paddy Lohman for two runs. Carl Manda contributed a boot In the second inning which cost a run.

Christenbury booted Lohman safely In the third and Lohman eventually acored. In the ninth Christenbury heaved the ball over first base on Grif fith's easy grounder and Griffith regis tered the winning run. There were any number of fans in the stands Monday who said. "Never again." With such a brand of ball be ing played, it is hard to blame them. HE WHO GUFFAWS LAST. Jess Wlllard, the deposed heavy weight champion, had a big laugh be fore he met Jack Dempsey, because Jess figured Dempsey the greatest set up of his career. Listen to this hy Wlllard, which the big boy gave out before he met the human buzz saw: "Some paper had a note in it the other day to the effect that Jack Kearns was afraid that I wouldn't show up on the Fourth. "Say, the funny part of it all Is that I'm wondering whether Kearns and Dempsey will be there. You know, I've, laughed myself to sleep at night think ing of Kearns' ga.ll. The idea of him even thinking that Dempsey has a chance with me. "I think it's the biggest set-up since Corbett beat Mitchell. Can't under stand why people bet on Dempsey. He's a good little fellow, hut gosh! what chance has he with a big man like m? I'm afraid 1 might hurt the young fel low. Honest to goodness, 1 am. Win. he's only a little bit bigger than Joe Chip." Wonder how thlR sounds to Mr, Wll lard today. . One of the reasons that liempsev kicked the big hulk into the rosin was that Jess figured Jack didn't have a chance to bowl him over. SULLIVAN SUSPENDED. Joe Sullivan, Memphis inflelder, ha' beam suspended for leaving the club without permission. Tex Rickard says he will clear only about $100,000 out of the Dempsey. Wll lard heavyweight bout. Pretty punk for only two or three months' work. These boxing promoters are certainly a poorly paid lot. ' Fight Fan lim Jeffries fought Jack Johnson on July 4, 1910 at Reno, Nev. a There's more than one sucker being horn every minute these days In fai t, it seems that twins and triplets are making their appearance. In Toledo Friday there were any number of fight fans who showed up with fake ducata thai had been sold them in Toledo hy crooks. m WILL FIGHT ANYBODY. Jack Demptey, the new heavyweight champion, says he will fight anybody, regard less of creed, color or prevloue condition or aervitude. He ban nobody anywhere, any time or under any en cumstancea. They don't grow too big or too rugged for the new champion according to hla own admission. This is the variety of man who now wears tha heavyweight crown. Quite different from the one who only re cently re'.nquished it Pal Moore-Jimmy Wilde Bout Next Big A ttraction e Premier Bantam Will Go Up Against British Flyweight in London on Thursday, July 17 Both Training. BY BOB PIQUE w I t h the Dampoty- Wlllsrd thinu having wished by. th road ii clear and the green lights are shining for the next big fistic at traction, which will be the 10-round battle be tween Tal Moure, of Memphis, the legitimate king of the bantamweights, and Jimmy Wilde. British flyweight champion, which will be staged In London on Thursday. July 17 Although the contest Is to be staged on the other side of ihe water, there Is a tremendous Interest In the 1'nited States, and especially In the Sou'h. and very naturslly In Memphis, which is Moore' I home, where he was born and reared, atid where he got his first start toward the pugilistic peak he now oc cupies Moore and his manager. Nate Lewis, arrived overseas some tlnie ago. and Pal has been in hard training since that time in anticipation of his meet ing with Wilde, who is recognized as the premier flyweight of ilreat Britain. The winner of the approaching battle wili be matched with Pete Herman, bantam champion, for the champion ship of the world, providing Herman wins over Karl Puryear in Tulsa. Okla , on Labor day. whan Puryear and Her man will meet at John Relator s' cluh In s 1'0-round engagement for the cham pionship. A referee's decision will be given. In case Puryear wins over Her man, he will draw the winner of the Moore-Wilde bout In London. Wilde Is planning to come to the I'nlted States this fall and meet all of the leading battlers of the baby brigade Moore the Favorite. That 1'al Moore will enter the ring against Wilde the favorite In the bet ting among those who will wager their money impartially and because they think he will win is n certainty. There are several reasons why Moore should he the favorite, chief of which Is that Pal won a referee's decision oyer Wilde during the allied boxing tournament In London some time ago, decisively win ning over the Briton and receiving the decision from a Brillsh referee. Moor" ha-s met every bantam in the country, and he polished off Wilde with the same neatness and dispatch that has Attaboy II tj Coxjle THIS ttKABMNK THAT NEVEH I Vhl S.

That night he was sent home with a bad smashirp From Memphis he went to Richmond, but failed to shake his luck. Fate evidently had him marked from the start; he was one down all the way. When Billy Smith left Virginia for Shreveport Red went with him, taking along bis edge on Fate. It is no strange thing to pick up a paper and read where McDer mott is broken beyond repair. If lied could only step out and break his neck he would save himself great pain and trouble. But it seems that the best he can do is crack a leg or sprain an anlde RACING IX MEMPHIS. The great revival of Interest in played Friday at the Fairgrounds, means that the Tri-State Driving club Is pointed toward the brig nest year in history. So great was the crowd that attended the annual feature bill that many slid back in memory to the historic days of Montgomery park, when the sport of kings was in its prime and glory. When the warring factions merged several weeks ago. thereby forming the Tri-State Driving club, the combined talent of both organi zations was thrown together, assuring healthy fields for the entire sum mer. More than that, the clean atmosphere surrounding these weekly matinees has been so refreshing as to draw from other sports a part of their following. Sport and money linve been so closely linked of late years that the one has been Inseparable from the other And ns a re sult, sport has lost a part of its glimmer and its power to lure the hug has faded. The answer, of course, lies in the fact that too much finance has choked the golden goose. At the fairgrounds the driving club stages a weekly matinee, for sport's sake only. Only once during the season Is there n tax at the gate and that is for the Fourth of July card. Every other week a bill is run off with five to six races, plus a jazz band, and the gates are wide open. The owners and drivers are prominent business men of the city contesting for recreation alone. What more could be said of so clean an industry? With n clean slate for in years, there is no reason why the eleventh season should not be the best tn history. If you think that harsh things have been printed In these columns concerning Jack Dempsey and his failure tn enlls!, von may inspect the following from Grantland Rice in the New York Tribune: "And so, as Willard at 38 passes out, Dempsey at 24 be comes champion of the world. The champion boxer not the champion fighter. For it would be an insult to every dough boy that took his heavy pack through the mules' train' to front line trenches to go over the top at dawn to refer to Dempsey as a fighting man. If he hnd been a fighting man he would liave been in khaki when at 22 he had no other responsibility in the world except to protect his own hide. Marvel of the Itlng.
