THE SPORTS HIGHWAY WITH AL WARDEN Dempsey/ White and Clark to Be Honored at Hall of Fame Dinner Jack Dempsey, Earl (Dutch) Clark and Byron (Whizzer) White will be the first inductees into the newly established Colorado Sports Hall of Fame at the Hilton Hotel, Denver, Friday evening, April 2. A 16-man selection committee composed of leading sports writers and sportscasters of Colorado named the trio from a field of 80 candidates. The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame is sponsored by the Denver Chamber of Commerce and upwards of 2,000 men and women will attend the initial dinner party committeeman Eddie Bohn of Denver informs this corner. Bohn is well known in Ogden and Utah. Back in 1952 he was referee of one of the preliminaries of the Ezzard Charles-Rex Layne non-title heavyweight boxing bout at Ogden Stadium. Dempsey was the referee of the main event. Eddie has served as chairman of the Colorado Athletic Committee for nearly 30 years JACK DEMPSEY . a distinct honor. Primary consideration for the first induction was given to nominees born in the state of Colorado. Dempsey, -named in 1950 by the Associated Press as the greatest heavyweight of the first half of the present century, was born at Manassa, Colorado, June 24, 1895. His real name is William Harrison Dempsey. During most of his career he was called the "Manassa Mauler." Dempsey, his father, mother. brothers and sisters moved to Utah when Jack was only 6 years of age. Dempsey won the heavyweight title' at Toledo, Ohio, from Jess Wiilard, July 4, 1919, via TKO in four rounds . . . and lost his crown to Gene Tunney at Philadelphia in September 1926. In a rematch in Chicago in 1927 (the long count fight) MOTHER WARNED: DON'T UMPIRE FROM THE STANDS LOS ANGELES (UPI)--A mother of two Little Leaguers has been warned by a Superior Court judge to stop trying to umpire the boys' games from the stands. The mother, Mrs. Almedia Dueker, 31, had brought a suit contending the Van Nuys Little League was discriminating against her two sons because their father had been convicted of receiving stolen property. Judge Charles C. Stratton ruled Friday the league must admit the boys--Robbie, 10, and Steve, 8--but told Mrs. Dueker she must behave herself and balls and strikes ahead of the umpire. Referring to 14 affidavits charging Mrs. Deuker was a "nuisance" at the ball park and interrupted games with her conduct, Judge Stratton said: "I know it is the American tradition to feel it is good clean fun to criticize the umpire and even yell out, but from reading the affidavits, I feel that Mrs. Dueker overdoes it." Wiilard Bay Will Lure Best Unlimited Hydros SPORTS SB Tunney again gained the decision. . Earl (Dutch) Clark played for Pueblo High School at Chicago in 1926 in the national" high school cage tournament along with the Ogden Tigers and LDS of Salt Lake City.

This corner received an invitation to attend via phone from colorful Eddie Bohn . . . but had to decline due to my recent "heart attack." Besides being sensational football players, White and Clark had something else in common besides the grid sport. They were sensational basketball players and excelled in everything they undertook to do.
