W'VaVx" r ww Jury Selected and - All - Set for Suit in Which "Doa" Triei to Collect Orer $700,000 Judgment. NEW YORK, April 20. (U.P.) With both sides prepared for a fight to the finish, the legal battle between Jack Kearns and Jack Dempsey actually got under way in Federal Judge John C. Knox's courtroom here today. The Jury was selected in less than thirty minutes late yesterday and everything was made ready for the opening of the trial at 10:30 a. m., today. In his charge to the jury Judge Knox said: "This case la to be tried fairly, cleanly and without prejudice to either side." Before the jury was impaneled Judge Knox made certain that none of the prospective jurors held a grudge against either of the participants because of the large amount of money they had made out of tne prise fighting business. Two Are Rejected. Two members of the first panel were rejected by Kearna" counsel, one on the ground that he had seen Jack Dempsey fight and the other on the ground that his brokerage firm owned 500 shares in Madison Square Garden. Their successors were satisfactory. The jury Is composed of an insurance claim adjustor, an importer of baskets, a contractor, a salesman, a gas man, a motor truck salesman, a real estate agent, a merchant, a lumber man, a Jeweler, a soap manufacturer and factory superintendent. The opposing counsels estimated that the trial would require about four days. Both sides have made it clear that they will make every effort to reach a decision this time. Kearns is suing for 1701,026.60, basing his action on a contract he is said to have held as Dempsey's manager and governing the latter services from August, 1923, to August, 1926. ' Kearns hopes to collect his one-third from the Harry Wills fight which never took place and also from the first Dempgey-Tun-ney fight. .- r ' i Fairbury Legion Plans First Card Of Boxing FAIRBURY.

The middleweight boxing championship was first claimed by Tom Chandler after he defeated Dooney Harris in twenty-three rounds. April 13, 1867. Carl Zamloch, formerly a Detroit pitcher, but more recently a college coach, introduced a new twist this spring when he tried "reversible" baseball with two college teams on the Pacific coast. . I recall Zamloch as a sprightly and likeable young chap in his American league days. He is the son of a magician who appeared as Zamloch the Great. Carl, the son, has a spark of inventive genius, and when he left the major leagues he went on the stage for awhile, presenting an act similar to that of his father's. Zamloch's so-called reversible baseball derives Its name from the fact that a batter may run to third base or to first as a matter of choice, If he is the first batter in an inning and hits the ball fairly. Believe It's Jok. There has been both serious and jocular comment by major league players on Zamloch's idea. A little reflection shows that it would make baseball much more Intricate. After dwelling upon a few of its phases, the modern ballplayer is certain to remark : "Why don't thia guy let the game alone? It's tough enough as it is." An odd feature of the reversible game is that the third baseman is allowed to wear a first baseman's glove when the first batter in an Inning reaches third base first.

Cyrl(ht ltS In all conntriM bjr North American Newspaper Alliance. One major league player voiced the opinion that it would be foolish for a left-handed batter, who hits to right field, to run to third Instead of first, because with a two-base hit in sight the route to second would be decidedly longer. Tor a left-handed batter. - Another veteran point: aut that a runner on third who plans to steal second is badly handicapped In trying to get the jump on the pitcher with his left foot instead of his right, which he uses la leading off first base. ; Works Both Ways. Where the left-handed pitcher gets the break in holding runners to first, the right-handed pitcher would be getting it in holding them to third. A star inflelder puts forth this problem: Suppose the first batter in an inning hits a grounder to the extreme- left Bide of the second baseman, and decides to run to third Instead of first. The second baseman makes a spectacular one-handed stop near first base. How can he Jerk himself into position to throw out the runner at third has? In this case the second base-would have to be left-handed to get set quickly for the throw to third, and there are no left-handed second basemen. There are also no left-handed shortstops. . Kid Elberfeld Invented the first game of reversible-baseball, in the training camp of the New York Americans at Atlanta, Ga in 1906. Elberfeld's game was never tried out. However, he went Zamloch one better; his .plan was to have a line drawn through the diamond, from home plate to centerfleld. The batter would have the option of running to first qr third, according to the side of the line on which his hltfelL ' DOAJE-YOSK m TEACK DUAL Woyt. Vyl Thomae.

I U " SB a SOLD SY AU.COOD DEALERS fottrm of Me Beat sincrmn A. J. TCW'ER COMPANY BOSTON More Success in Winning Might Stimulate British Interest Greek Cities Warred v Over Olympiad. NEW YORK. April 20 (U. P.) The question of whether the Olympic games axe forth while whether they do not hamper rather than help international amity has been raised in Great Britain. Difference of opinion arising between nations over amateur rulings, introduction of sectional sports, and intranational strife over control of the competing athletes are cited as reasons for a withdrawal from the Olympic on the part of the British. "The British nation, intensely interested in sport, is vastly uninterested In the Olympic games." says the Dally Express editorially. A little more success in winning points at the modern Olympiads might butter the Brltains bread more to their taste. It is inevitable that the monotonous legularity ot American victories should cause lack fiJL Interest In Great Britain. Win In 1924. Yet the British have nothing to complain of in the performances of their runners at Paris in 1924, for Abrahams won the 100 meters. Lid-dell the 400 and Lowe the 800, a record which aroused envy among Americans who could win but one first place in an individual running event on the flat. Brltains, devoted to tennis, also have lost Interest in the Davis Cup competition, because they no longer are certain of a place in the challenge round. Success is quite a tonic. It is possible that the British are right, however, about the Olympic games being none too beneficial for international amity. ' One can go right back to antiquity and find that such has been the case. The Greek cities used to war about the first Olympiads, the amateur rules were just as strictly drawn end pliably applied as today, and the boys of the A. A. U. who-like -to wear the tall hats and badges and pose at the head ot the parade had their prototypes In ancient Hellas. The qualifications of a contender in the original Olympic games of the seventh and eighth centuries before Christ were Insisted upon rigidly. In Earlier Times. A month before the games were to begin all competitors, men, boys and horses, presented themselves at Ells where they demonstrated to the Hellanodlcae their right to participate. The Hellanodlcae were judges, elected for the term of a single Olympiad, who had taken sacred oaths and spent ten months preparing themselves for their tasks. The candidate had to be Greek and free-born, a citizen and dellgl-ous. He also had to be reasonably well fixed for spot cash money, because training and travel as well 'as gifts for the gods were costly in those ancient days. The prospective contestants testified to the Hellanodlcae that they had been in training for ten months, and then - proceeded to spend another month in even stricter dieting and exercise. It might interest Jimmy de Forrest and some of the modern trainers to know that for more than 200 years they bad to eat cheese for an entire month previous to the contests. . Those who are inclined to deplore the modern tendensy to glorify a successful athlete out of all due proportion need not deceive themselves that such has not always been the custom. The "Red ff to- .
