MILTON SILLS in
The story of “Puppets” throbs with
life and action. There is something
vitally important happening every
minute. It is one glorious sweep of
action from beginning to end.
Sills is seen in a role that is bound
to increase his fan popularity. He is
cast as an Italian puppet-master,
strong as iron and with a will that
nothing and nobody can break. He
marries a beautiful girl before she
hardly gets to know him. Then in-
exorable fate drags him off to war.
Before he departs for the front he
makes a powerful vow that he will

DEMPSEY DETHRONED AS
© HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
In a Pouring Rain, Before the Largest
Crowd ever Assembled for a
Sporting Event Jack Loses
His Crown to Gene
After having held the heavyweight
championship belt since 1919 Jack
Dempsey lost it to Gene Tunney at the
end of their ten. round bout in the
Sesqui-centennial stadium, Philadel-
phia, last Thursday night.
The contest was staged before 125,-
000 people, the largest crowd ever
gathered to witness a sporting event
in any country in the world. The
gate receipts exceeded $2,000,000.
Rain began to fall during the progress
of the first round and continued with
increasing volume throughout the
It was a good fight, though abso-
lutely devoid of thrills. There wasn’t
a single knockdown. Tunney stagger-
ed the champion in the first round
with rights and lefts to the chin. In
the fourth Dempsey caught Tunney
with a terrific left that sent him to
the ropes and might have scored a
knockout then, but was unable to fol-
low up his advantage. Tunney out-
boxed and out-generaled the champion
and his quick foot-work enabled him
to keep away from the dangerous
Dempsey left and dash in at will to
whip over painful punches to the
While Dempsey fought with all his
old-time courage the steam wasn’t
there, his judgment of distance was
bad and in the closing rounds his
gradual slowing up showed the effects
of his three year’s of absence. from
the ring. After discovering that he
was losing the fight on points he tried
desperately to get in a knockout blow,
and took terrible punishment for it,
but all to no purpose. He was a sorry
sight at the end of the bout. His
right eye was entirely closed, his left
nearly so, he was bleeding from the
mouth and many cuts on his face,
while Tunney had scarcely a mark as
a result of standing for ten rounds be-
fore the champion who had been
known for years as “the Killer.”
Tunney won every round but two
and when the judges crowned him the
new heavyweight champion of the
world Dempsy staggered to the mid-
dle of the ring, threw both arms about
his conqueror and sincerely congratu-
lated him. That was the finest thing
the ex-champion did in his whole ring
career. It made thousands friends
who had had little admiration for him
The fight was a record making one
in many ways. It was the first time
in the history of (fistiana that a heavy-
weight championship passed on a de-
cision of judges.
