ACK KI1AIOCS, equlre of Cham pion Jack Dempsey, In paaslcgr through Chicago, says a match with Iuta Flrpo in &uth America next January la a possibility, while bouts with Harry Wills dad Jess Wi lard are etlil considered. Let's see. Isn't It a rather Ions; time between bouts? We do not recall that Jack has defended bis honors since he put a quietus on Georges Carpcntier noarly two years ago. Admit tin sr a scarcity of opponents, Harry Wills. Tom Gibbons, and L.uis Firpo, In the order named, loom as possibilities. We do not consider Jens Wiliard seriously. It has been nearly four years since the Toledo massacre. We always have believed a dethroned champion should be given a return bout. If Jess and Jack had been rematched within a year or two years after that bout, well and good. At Wlilard's age, four years is too long; a wait. Dempsey will be "7 years old In June. While those of us who saw his superb condition aguinsit Wiliard doubt whether he ever again will attain that perfection, these years should be his best, and be is failing to capitalise them.

The winners will seet for first and second places and the losers for third and fourth places. Action in Two Classes.

In the great majority of cases 'aere were better exhibitions of bosing f"i cleaner punching than on precedes nights. The semi -finalists appear -7 excellent condition and fit to put up at contests for the championships. Tracey Shows Stuff.

Excuses that it Is not possible to secure suitable bouts for Jack may be accepted for what they are worth. It always is possible to secure bouts, under some conditions, if one really wishes to mix it up with challengers. But if you can't see Jack Dempsey in action, you can see plenty of action tonight in the finals of The Tribune Athletic association amateur boxing tournament.

EW YORK, March 27 Frank Abrlow, sportsman and horseman, it was reported tonight, has paid $50,000 for a five year contract as manager of Johnny Wilson of Boston, middleweight champion of the world except in New York state and some other localities. Mario w was said to have paid that Mini to Marty KffH Wilson's former manager, who yesterday announced his retirement from pugilistic affairs because he disliked trr manner in which the New York boxing commission conducted the sport. Frankle Genaro, flyweight champion, who will clash with Bud Taylor of Terre Haute, Ind., in on of the all star bouts of the boxing ehow at the Coliseum next Wednesday night, will arrive in Chicago Sunday, and will train at one of the local gymnasiums that afternoon. Joe Lynch, monarch of the bantams, who will trade punches with Midget Smith of New York in another go on the same card, also will be In town some time on Sunday, and will lose no time getting to work. Smith will be here on Monday and will work at the Arcade gymnasium. - Iloosier Fans Coming. Taylor is doing his preliminary training in Terre Haute. Bud will come to Chicago the end of this week. The Taylor-Genaro contest is attracting as much interest as any go in Chicago in years, despite the fact some pretty good contests have been held. Taylor has many friends In Chicago. A delegation of 200 Hoosier fans already has made plication for seats. Matchmaker Joe Coffey Is trying to match Jack Eile of the west side and Patsy Flannigan of St. Louis for one of the preliminaries. Reserved seats will be placed on sale today at the usual places, but no general admission seats will be disposed of until 8 o'clock on the night of tha contest.

The New York state athletic commission today announced it would not permit Farmer Lodge, of Minneapolis to box Luis Firpo, South American heavyweight, at the Yankee stadium on May 12. The commission ruled Lodge was not a suitable opponent for Firpo and ordered a selection from Jim Herman of Omaha, Jack Renault" of Canada, and Jack McAuliffe of Detroit. In the absence of Promoter Tex Rickard, Frank Coultry, general manager of Madison Square Garden, started immediate negotiations in an effort to fill Lodge's place- - A drastic step to force boxing champions into action also was announced by the commission- today when it adopted a rule compelling titleholders to go through with matches for which they have been formally challenged before taking-part in .any other con-testa in this state. Three outstanding challenges now on f ie with the commission are affected by the latest decision. It was said. They are: Carl Tremaine of Cleveland against Joe Lynch, bantamweight not have so much moonshine next winter, ventures Helper O. M. A. To Nitnrod.

Zip, the jrounger of the Dumovlch brothers, suffered one bad inning today and the Oaks trimmed the Cuba, 6 to 3. Manager Killefer used eighteen men in a a 1 n effort to break the Oakland jinx. The Cubs always have had trouble in this town. Dumovlch fell Into a bad fix in the third round when four singles, a double, his own wild throw, and a boot by Callaghan staked the homo boys to a quartet of runs and victory. Zip settled down la the next two., innings and was effective. . Ktaoffer Urt Hard. Stauffer finished the game for the Cubs. He was hit hard and was lucky to hare only one run made against him.

GARDINFS DAD MAKES LEWIS MATCH POSSIBLE Credit for making possible the wrestling match between Champion Ed Lewis and Renato Gardini, Italian heavyweight, next Tuesday at the Coliseum is given Andrea Di Pietro, Boston banker and father of Mrs. Gardini, who personally met the champion's heavy demands after promoters had found his terms too high. Mrs. Gardini is supervising her husband's training for his chance at the title. Lou Talaber, the local middleweight grappler, will step out of his class on Friday night when he tackles Youssiff Hussane. Turk matman, at the Star and Garter. The match will be a handicap affair, with Hussane to gain one fall within the time limit. PROPOSED MITT BILL CALLS FOR NO DECISIONS Springfield, 111., March 27. Special. The special subcommittee on boxing tonight agreed on the form of a boxing bill which will be submitted to the house miscellanyconimittee as a substitute for all pending measures' to legalize the sport in Illinois. Sentiment of the whole committee is strongly in favor of a boxing bill and the committee bill is expected to receive an early favorable report. The bill provides for ten round, no-decision matches with six ounce gloves. It creates a commission of three members to be appointed by the governor at salaries of J5.00O each to regulate the sport. 100 TO COMPETE IN ROLLER MEET ; Close to 100 entries have been received for the annual handicap roller skate races which will be staged by the Calerton A.

A WAREHOUSE WORKOUT Fournier Dodges Dodgers; Signs Up with Semi-pros Centralia, III., March 27. Speclal. Jack Fournier, former St. Louis Cardinal first baseman, today closed a contract with the management of the Centralia Indians to manage the club for the 1923 season. He was traded to the Brooklyn Nationals, but refused to go to that club. ROBINS SHOT TO PIECES, EXCEPT FOR BATTERIES BY HUGH FULLERTON. AB.TTCI.te XL . Clearwater, Fla, March 17. (Special. Brooklyn looks discouraging as pect for 923. With the very fellows who needed spring training worst holding out and delaying arrival at camp: with one of the main cogs crippled playing bae-ball m Japan; others delayed and called away, and with perhaps the longest and hardest series of spring games In the country,- the outlook Is not a baseball pros-promising. This is hard luck, for the Dodgers have picked up extremely promising recruits. These gains have hardly been enough to offset the losses, and the team Is shot up In vital roots. It looks as if little remains of this club except pitching and catching strength. Griffith on Crutches. During the period In which the ret-erans were most needed to help morale and instruct the youngsters, and to get the team work going, they absented themselves. The cases of Fournier and Wheat are worst. Griffith may be excused. He was hurt during the winter in Japan. He pulled a tendon, so that every move this spring aggrevated the injury, and to escape peTnanent lameness he was plastered up ,nd put on crutches In the midst of the training season. Fournier has not acted right. The other clubs waived claim to him and heavy pressure 'was brought to bear to persuade the Dodgers to waive, eo that be might be sent to the minors. Brooklyn refused. The Cardinals assured Ebbets the contract was satisfactory, and a deal was made by which Schmandt went back to the minors for one year to help the Cardinal deal. New Infield Makeup. With Schmandt gone, Schlelbner, a promising minor leaguer, must handle the job, and the probable etartlns infield will be Schleibner, Stewart, Mullen, and Johnson three experiments. Mullen, from Mobile, Is a fine looking recruit, fast, with a Maranville move In handling the ball. Stewart is full of promise. The outfield is a minus quantity Wheat holding out until way out ef shape, with the season well under S1SLER CAH'T REPORT S' il. LOUIS.

Having looked on the dark side, wo can turn to the battery men and Cud some promise. Three Classy Backstops. Brooklyn, for some reason, la . a rocky In getting good battery men a H la unlucky In finding regular. There are three eorSting catchers in De Berry, who Is due for a big season and looks In excellent shape; Hung-llng. a fast coming man, and In Har-greavea, a prospect who can bust the ban and will help any team as he eons. Brooklyn has an extraordinary pitching staff, and has had for several years. The backbone, of course, consists of Grimes and Ruether. who, If working properly, could carry half the burden of the year. Ruether !a the best left hander in the National league. If he wants to work. He had a flare up Just after he reported to the training camp, but got the differences ad-Justed, and now is on his toea. PhyslcaUy Dutch Is In better shape than for years, and Grimes is better physically than I have ever seen him. Those two, working right, ought to pitch seventy-four games between them. Vance is a horse. .n had a great year last year, and is better now. Mamaux, who Is one of those ought-to-bes. had a bad reason last year, and la working hard this spring. Two Slab Standby. There is a kid named Vina, from Bridgeport, who looks great, and Schreiber, from Saginaw, is a comer, but probably not this season. Cadrtre seems to have passed the stage where he can become great, but he la useful, especially as a finisher. It does not look as if the Dodgers have found any pitcher who will hcl' much this season, and Ruether and Harper must carry the ait uanjfi: burden. The brains department is well handled by Robbie and Charley Schmidt. But they can't ptay the game for the boys. t Copyright: 1923: By The ChJearo Triban? ! siiiiifiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiin itiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin.iiiiiiii l BY JRTJVG VAUGIIAN. Seguin, Tex., March 27. Special. The rainstorm that settled hereabouts' yesterday was still going strong today i and the result was another setback In I the training activities of Old Posey Gleason's White Sox. At no time during the day was it pos sible to take the squad outdoors, but after scouting around Gleason man aged to find 'a shelter that permitted the pitchers to indulge in a bit of ordinary tossing. The workout of the hurl- ers was about a half hour long and was staged in a cotton warehouse. Tough on Other Players. After they had loosened up their arms they worked up a good sweat by climbing around on the mountain of bales. Meanwhile the other players had to Etick inside the hotel and wait for the day to drag by. The weather permitting and pros pects were not bright this evening a workout wiU be put on at the park tomorrow, and Thursday sixteen mem bers of the troupe will motor to San Antonio to tackle the Giants in the aft-1 ernoon. On Friday the entire squad! win be back here for a final fling and that night depart for Dallas to open a joint tour with the world champions. Woodward to Start. Gleason intends to take six pitchers j over to the Alamo city for the next j game. The sextet will be made up of Faber, Homer Blankenship, Leverett, E Davenport, and Woodward. The lat- ter probably will start the battle, and j; if things go well Davenport may be asked to step in for a few innings. E Nothing has been heard in connec tion with the two holdouts, Ernie Johnson and Charles Robertson.

Complete satisfaction with Jack Bentley, the $65,000 holdout purchased by the New York Giants from Baltimore, was voiced today by Manager McGraw a'ter a second day of scrutinizing the work of the recruit. Bentley dropped four pounds, and now has only thir-tei more to lose to be at his normal weight of 200. McGraw said he would not put Bentley at first base, but would keep him for his southpaw pitching and perhaps use him as a pinch hitter. EXHIBITION GAMES . AT TAMPA, 1"I.
