Fortune For Jess Willard Whether He Wins
or Loses; Biggest Purse Ever Offered in Ring
r "t7
• -
boXins with Hem Pe - one of Ms huskiest partners. Hempel is shown ducking one of Willard'si
(C) Underwood and Underwood.
With everything: set for the world's i
championship pugilistic gonfalon on [
Friday next, there is keen interest to !
know just what the financial end
means to the various participants.
There is no question but that this !
feature was the first discussed, for !
it is certain Willard would never j
have chucked up his business to en- !
ter the ring again had the reward j
not been something beyond the ordi- I
Willard stands to-day with the '
capital chance to become really a rich
man. By winning from Jack John- !
son at Havana, Cuba four years ago, ;
Willard was placed in a position to !
begin building up an immense for- j
tune, and should Dempsey capture the
title there is no telling how much
wealth he may accumulate in these
days of high finance, when sport pro- j
moters talk of the "sky" as the limit !
for big events.
Aside from the actual purse money 1
of $127,500 signed for by the two ;
pugilists, $lOO,OOO of which is guar- i
anteed to Willard. win, lose or draw, i
the enormous amount of cash which !
will be handled in connection with j
the coming bout dwarfs all previous j
ring contests into financial oblivion. :
The "gate." from the sale of tickets
and concessions, is expected to pass
the one million dollar mark, which j
would make the receipts of previous ;
fistic carnivals look very small in j
RJcknrd Deals In Rig Figures.
Tex Riekard, the daring promoter j
who is bringing the two men together j
in this bout, generally does things
on a large scale. He secured the j
Johnson-Jeffries fight for a gurantee !
of $105,000, and at Reno his receipts
amounted to $270,000. Of course, the I
promoter was at an enormous outlay
in bringing that contest to an Issue,
j having been forced almost at a mo
| ment's notice to move from Califor
| nia to another State in order to se
j cure a battle ground. Rickard's out
i luy for the coming battle, including
| guaranteed puree, cost of arena con
j struction, advertising and other ex
| penses, will amount to a vast sum.
j The casual observer might.think that
i the promoter will still have a big
margin of profit out of the charge
! for admission. At first glance this
I seems reasonable, but Rickard is go
] ing to pay the regular war tax of ten
| per cent, on all tickets purchased and
has guaranteed the local authorities
I percentage also. The United States
Government, however, will have a big
i claim for income tax, so that when i
I everything is deducted from the
; "gate" Rickard's margin of profit j
| probably will fall far short of the
results be attained in some of hi 3 pre
j vious ventures.
Some changes have been made in
j the conditions governing the bout
! since the original articles were
1 signed, the most important being the
; limiting of the contest to twelve
| rounds and the reduction of the size
j of the ring to twenty feet square.
' Originally the men were to have gone
twenty or more rounds and the inten
l tion was to have, a regulation twen
j ty-four foot ring. Otherwise the
agreement stands as signed by Rick
ard. Willard and Dempsey, each be
i ing entitled to a third of the mov
-1 ing picture privileges. Willard is
i guaranteed 1100,000 and Dempsey
j $27,500.
Ulg Following For Fach
' j When the two men step into the
' ! ring on Friday each will have a big
| following of partisans. Those who
' i rely on Wiilard's retaining his title
j insist that he is invulnerable to pun
' 1 ishment and that Dempsey will fail
| j to reach his burly opponent with an
' j effective blow. Many of them also
i claim that Willard has never hit a
1 human being with the full force of
| which his huge frame is capable. It
j is said that once during his prepara
| tion for a previous contest Willard
j lost his temper on being stung by the
j blow of a sparring partner. Then
I the big fellow landed a vicious swing
j which swept his opponent and one of
! ths ring posts to a spot several hun
j dred yards away from the ringside,
i and that the "partner" needed medi
cal attention for many days after
Dempsey's friends, and they are
legion confidently state that no man,
however big and strong, can with
stand the impact of a full weight
hook or swing from either of Jack's
fists. They look for a quick ending,
with Dempsey a winner. They say
that Jack can land on Wiilard's Jaw
just as effectively as he did on Fred
Fulton's last year. They rely on
Jack's fearlessness as a big asset, in
conjunction with his heavy hitting
power. Dempsey's youth also is one
; of the arguments his adherents ad
! vancc as being a decided factor in
| his favor, as Dempsey is 24 years old.
j There are conflicting statements as
| to Wiilard's exact age, but it is gen
, eral belief that the Kansan has passed
j the 40-year mark.
Dempsey has taken part in many
ring contests during the last four
I years, while Willard has fought only
| twice within that period. Jess won
j the championship from Johnson at
| Havana, Cuba, in April, 1915. That
j battle lasted 26 rounds. 'Just 11
; months later Willard met Frank Mo
ran, for 10 rounds at Madison Square
j Garden, New York. This was a no
j decision contest, but Moran was so
far outclassed on that occasion that
tljere was no question as to Wiilard's
having won decisively. Since that
time, March 25, 1916, Willard has not
defended his title. Thousands of fis
tic patrons believe that this protract
ed absence from fighting has a de
teriorating effect on the big cham
pion's abilities, while Dempsey, hav
ing been in ring action almost con
stantly, will be in much better con
Dempsey a knoekerout
Dempsey fought 16 ring battles last!
year and scored 13 knockouts. One
of these, with Arthur Pelkey, went
fifteen rounds; two of them ended in
the sixth, Carl Morris and Bill Bren
men being the victims, but eight
were abruptly finished in the opening
round. In addition to the three men
tioned pugilists. Dempsey scored
knockouts on Fred Fulton. Jim
Flynn. Tarky Flynn, Terry Kellar,
Battling Levinsky and Gunboat Smith.

With Atlantic Gasoline in the tank, there's a natural temptation
to give the car its head —to "see what she'll do". For, make no mis
take, Atlantic Gasoline is lively.
And it isn't lively today and "anaemic" tomorrow, either. The
uniformity of Atlantic is a definite principle, rigidly adhered to. The
reputation of this marvelous motor-fuel has been built up largely on
this one exclusive feature.
Drive up where you see the Atlantic sign. That's the place
where the man turns the crank and pumps pep into your tank.

Swatara downed the St. Mary's

Shearer twirled his fifth straight
victory for Swatara and only allowed
his opponents two hits and fanned

in the spotlight with his cud of to

home when runs were badly needed.
Swatara tightly nailod the game

Hooker fanned. Swartz singled. A
double steal was next pulled off and
Kurtz's hot grounder was too much
for Farina and Mickey and Swartz
scored. Matter fiied out to Daley.

"Cooties, Prohibition

Got From the War
Just a moment before Don j
Wertz, the phenomenal pitcher of
Motive Power team, slammed out
his homer last evening, winning
his own game, two fans back of
third base got into a fierce
wrangle about what "America
got out of the war."
The heavy jowled, bulging eyed
rooter maintained that wo saved
democracy and the rest of the
world, but he could not convince
the more slender wild-eyed Bol
sheviker who screamed at the top
of his voice: "What did America
get? Nothing but cooties, pro
hibition and the flu." Simultane
ously. Don Wertz smashed the
