' Central Press Sports Writer. The news that Jack Johnson, onetime ebon monarch of the heavios, IB assaying another comeback is unimportant, save that it probably sets a new world's record for comeback attempts. This Is about the fifteenth or sixteenth time that the ex-Galveston, Tex., stevedore has re-entered the ring business as an active mauler. Returns at 53. Johnson's latest return to tho rcsined battleground, at the age of 53, Is undoubtedly the result of his unbounded lack of enthusiasm for cutrent heavyweights. Johnson thinks most of the scrappers of today are just punks. But 53 is no age at which to try to prove that theory hy personal activity. Johnson began battling as far back as 1899, when he was "21, and in five rounds. That was 32 years ago. Has Had' 100 Battles. Johnson's last real fight was in 1024 when he defeated Homer Smith, another die hard. In all, up to that time he had battled about 100 times, winning over such talent a^s Jim' Jeffries, Bob Fitzslmmons, Tommy Burns, Marvin Hart, Sam McVey, Joe Jeanette, Sam Langford, Stanley Ketchel and Frank Moran. . The big smoke warred all over the world, doing his stuff in such spots as Canada, England, Aus- 1 tralia, France, Spain, Mexico and Cuba, where Jess Willard copped his title. The restless spirit which catapulted him from the Galveston docks to the top of the fistic heap has prevented him from settling down at some lowly but steady job. Tries Hand at Other Work Recently Johnson tried his hand at managing young fighters. And he had plenty of luck, but it was all bad. Then he got a job leading an orchestra, tho what in 30 years of in and out fighting fitted him for this post is hard to understand. Jfow he is trying to earn a living at that which he knows best, fighting. WEEK'S TILTS TO HAVE BEARING ON FINAL CAGE PLAY [wo Weeks Remain in Race for Conference Title Honors. GAMES THIS WEEK Monday.
