went to several fellows and asked
them to act as promoters. They
grinned and walked away. It looked
like a hopeless proposition as far
as the fight was concerned when
Freddie suddenly turned to me and
"'Why don't you promote the
fight? You pay me a certain
amount of money for boxing you
whether I win or lose and then you
take for yourself all the money
that you get above actual expenses.
There ought to be an awful lot of
dough in it for you.'
"I fell for Freddie's idea. I hired
a hall which costs me $15. I didn't
have the $15' but the Moose club
which owned the hall, agreed to
trust me until I had taken in enough
money through the sale of tickets.
Then I got out some printing which
took all my ready cash and went to
other expenses which put me in debt
to the tune of $40.
"Meanwhile Freddie steamed up
my hopes. He assured me that the
whole town was crazy about the
match and that it would turn out in
a body and that I would hake a lot
of money. As an added attraction
at Freddies suggestion 1 an
nounced that a dance would imme
diately follow the boxing bout, the
idea being that he could lure a lot
of women folk to the fight hall at
25 cents a head.

Harrison, N. J., June 7. Benny
Leonard, lightweight champion of
the world, gave Rocky Kansas of
Buffalo a complete boxing lesson in
their 12-round scramble at the Har
rison ball park last night.. Benjamin
carried off honors in eight out of the
12 rounds scheduled, but his
squatted opponent never backed up
an inch during the entire proceed
ings. Rocky, who is much shorter
than Leonard, kept plunging in and
hooking his left repeatedly to the
champion's wind. , Near the end of
the contest Leonard bad Kansas
reeling from repeated left and right
smashes to the chin, but Rocky was
dangerous and carried a kick which
had -Leonard's respect until the very
last bell. Several times during the
bout Kansas struck the "champion''
low. It was apparently uninten
tional on his part, however, and only
once did Leonard complain to the
For the first three 'rounds Leon
ard worked, around Kansas like a
cooper around a barrel, driving and
pecking with his tantalizing left
hand with the precision of a sharp
shooter, however, Rocky was in
there attending to his business and
several times he had the champion
worried as a result of his crowding
tactics and fierce ' work in the
Rocky stepped out in the fourth
round and took the lead for the first
time during the fight. The rugged
Buffalo boy kept crowding the
champion to the ropes and it was in
these periods that the Italian did his
best work. He just loved to grappfe
with Leonard in the scrimmages and
the champion had considerable dif
ficulty to get himseli free from these
From the sixth round on, Leonard
drew away from Rocky like a stake
horse would leave a selling platter.
With his hard darting left and over
hand, right hand counters to the jaw,
Rocky appeared a little puzzled at
Benny's speed. The champion's
best round was the eighth, when he
staggered the Buffalo boy with
stinging left and right smashes to
the chin. Rocky is a tough kid and
he' weathered the storm without
While the champion was pumping
in those left-handed socks, Rocky
continued his plunging tactics, rip
ping his strong left hand into
Benny's wind. For the greater part
of the fight Leonard employed his
left hand almost exclusively and it
was not until along about the last
few rounds that he brought his
right into play for some actual duty.
When Leonard got that right hand
working it was a tough journey for

Atlantic City, N. J., June 7. Hard
luck seems to be camping on my
lately. The cut over my left
which was reopened yesterday
in my bout with

had a doctor put
a stitch in it. He
advised me to lay
off boxing for a
while, so for the
next four days I
will not put on the
gloves with my
The doctor as

cut is a mere trifle,
but it is in an awk-
the least bump would reopen it. If I
give it a chance to heal completely I
will have no further trouble with it.
The cut is not painful nor is it at
all serious. It will not effect my
eyesight in any way, but it comes at
a time when I am most anxious to
get in some heavy work. I had
planned on making this a good,
rough week and feel bitterly disap
pointed in being forced to slow up.
Luckily I am in such fine trim al
ready and have so much training
time left before the big battle that I
am not worried. If the fight were
to be held tomorrow I might feel
some apprehension, but it is a long
time until July 2.
Since I can do no boxing I will do
my best to make up for the loss by
putting in some time rn the punch
ing bag, sand bag, calisthenics and
road work. I cannot afford to let
down completely at this stage of the
grind. If I were to sit around doing
nothing I would soon go stale, be

something to occupy my time I will
Following my restricted program,
I began the day with a six-mile jaunt
along the seashore. Part of the
time I walked and finished running
strongly. My wind is so good that
I could steu into the ring tomorrow

I Vette Wins Central
Fred Vette, crack junior golfer,
won the Central High school golf
championship yesterday when he de
feated Ned Reynolds brother of Golf
Champ Sam Reynolds, 6 up, in a 36
hole match at the Field club. .
Vette led Reynolds throughout the
whole match. Both players had sev
eral bad holes which marred their
scores. Vette turned in two 85
scores, while the best that Reynolds
could gather was 89 and 87.
Reynolds ptayed his poorest game
on the first nine holes, but improved
on his back course. Vette was 4 up
at the 18-hole mark. Reynolds start
ed poor on the second 18 holes, los
ing the first three holes, but braced
and won several in a row. Vette
played a consistent game and ended
the match on the 13th green. Vette's
short work won him the match. .
Mike O'Dowd will probably receive an
other chance to grasp . the long lost
sought for middleweight title If the East
Chicago promoters see fit to give Cham
pion johnny Lewis the guaranty he asks
to meet O'Dowd in a 10-round no-decislon
match June 29.
Tyrm Cobb Whangs
Out His Eighth Home
Run of the-Season
New York, June 7. Managers
Cobb of Detroit and Speaker of
Cleveland set good examples to
their players yesterday. The
Tiger leader batted out his eighth
home run of the season. Two of
Cobb's players, Dauss and Blue,
followed suit. Speaker returned
to the Indian lineup as a regular
and made four hits.
and feel sure that I would have no
trouble in stepping 12 rounds at top
Some of the boys around the camp
kept tab on me yesterday and told
me this morning that I put in 33
miutes of shadow and real boxing
without a pause. The 12 rounds I
am to box Carpentier, even if the
fight went the limit, would only
take 36 minutes of actual work and
I would have a minute's rest between
rounds. This will give the fans a
good line on how near ready I am
for the fight. This afternoon I put
in about half an hour with punching
bag, sand bag and shadow boxing.
I use the fastest punching bag that
it is possible to get, but ' neither
sand bag nor punching bag can give
the satisfaction that is felt when the
old haymaker lands on an opponent's
jaw or stomach. I don't mean sat
isfaction in the sense that I like to
hurt anybody, but in the knowledge
that I have succeeded in landing on
a man who is using head and body
to avoid my punches while trying to
land a few on his own account.
There is not much satisfaction in
slamming a bag around, because
there is never a comeback.
I am going to lose all the little
fellows who have been boxing with
pie. Alex .Trampitas, the welter;
Gentleman Joe Benjamin, the light
weight, and Babe Herman, the ban
tam, are going to New York to train
for fights. This will leave quite a
bit of room at the camp and Man
ager Jack Kearns will probably re
place the little fellows with some
husky heavyweights. Martin Burke,
the New Orleans heavyweight,
leaves tomorrow for Columbus,
where he will battle Joe Downey.
Burke will return after this scrap
and will continue boxing with me.
With the addition of two or three
big men I will have all the work I
