THURSDAY, DECEMBER (J, 1931 - West Coast Sportsman Is Boosting Bill Hoolahau, New Threat BV KKSKINt JOHNSON NEA Stnlix Slatl Correspondent LOS ANGELES, Dec. 0.—In llio gray of duwn two months iigo, a $14,000 automobile leR Los Angeles tor n mountain paradise 50 miles away. In the car was Jerry "the Greek" Luvadls, faithful trainer and pal of Jack Dcmpscy. At his side was a strapping:, clean-limbed kid who had given over his lite to becoming a pugilist. At the wheel was Dr. Ijalph Wagner, millionaire Hollywood sportsman and cue of Dempsey's lifelong friends. Arriving til llieir destination, the three men climbed from the car. Laid out before them was n big time training camp. On the side of a Mil was n fully equipped open air ring. Nearby were living quartets with Hie showers. From nn elaborate cookhouse came llic odor of fried chicken. Standing about were several husky sparring partners. Dr. Wagner called everyone to his side. Jerry the Greek pushed the kid out in front. Then the doctor addressed the entire group. "Boys," he said, "meet. Bin Hoolahan, the next heavyweight champion of the world," The kid grin, ned sheepishly and shuffled his feet. Jerry the Greek let out n cliccr and was joined by the rest as Dr. Wagner led the youth away for an Inspection tour of the layout, which, he says, already lias sci him back close to $100,000. Thus the campaign of u now heavyweight fistic threat was born. Backed by a millionaire, Dill Hoolahan has undergone a strenuous training program under the watchful eyes of old Jerry the Greek. In a couple of months it will ue revealed whether Bill Hoolahan lias what it takes. Dempscy Interested? Meanwhile, rumors are rite that Jack Dempsey is lurking somewhere in the picture, and Dr. Wagner's veiled statement of "wait and see" adds credence to the ic- porls. Jerry the Greek spoiled the kid in Los Angeles and hurriedly wired Dcmpscy in New York. Then Dr. Wagner rushed io New York, and when he returned he took Hoolahan lo the hills, It is said Ihalj- when Dcmpsey • arrives- in • Los 'Angeles m a. few weeks, he will sneak out' to' Ihe ranch for a couple of days to smooth some of the, sharp edges off Dr. Wagner's fistic gem in the rough. Born in New York of Irish pur- enls, 23ryear-old Hoolahan boxed several months for tho New York Athletic Club. Then he turned professional and scored 18 knockouts in 23 bouts. He was wrestling in Los Angeles when Jerry saw him. I'rcviously, i half-dozen Southern California .managers begged him. to leave the rriat game and turn once again to fighting, promising lo make him a champion hiEidc of a year. Standing six feet, one inch, and weighing 203 pounds, lioolalian is perfect physically for the task cut out for him. And Jerry says "he has everything any champion ever had." Wagner a Fighter, Too Hoolahan has been given an expensive automobile, a tidy little sum "for cigarette money," and a number of shares in t>r. Wagner's flourishing Yellow Cat sold mine in Nevada. In return for nil this sudden splendor, the kid works like a Trojan every day. ' Tic tramps four and five miics through the hills, chops wood, pilches hay. boxes eight to ten rounds regularly, and goes through a strenuous program of calisthenics. Or. Wagner is no unuitcur fighl enthusiast. At the aye of 16 he held the Pacific Coast lightweight championship. In 1923 and '24 he served as a boxing inspector in Nevada, and later, in California in the same capacily. His champion show horses arc well known in Calitm-nia, and his 5100,000 pacer, Ben Abce, holds .several existing California records. i'"ast automobiles and fast lioiras have always Intcrcslcd Dr. Wagner, but now he talks of nothing but Hoolahan. He thinks he has a champion under his wing, and he is spending all kinds of money lo prove his judgment. (ARK.)
