Jess raised a trembling hand for tho rope in a final attempt to pull liimseK to his feet. The hand wavered and missed Us mark. "Ton." Jesa was through—his hotnebaek had t'uiled—he left the ring for good. Not a word did he utter, when revived in -hia corner. He turn- d. elimbi'd down the steps and disappeared in the darKuesH toward his dressing room. Agrees to Meet Dempsey. And so, today the sporting world foeussed its attention on tho dark browt.-d young giant with the biack yellow and purple bath robe, who eoi.i tug north from the Pampas about fi:' teen months ajiu, battered his way to the fu:e ranks of heavyweights with' the tremendous sledgehammer blow-» ot his right fist. - ^ Kirpo this morning looked fondly at the eontraet which he had td.nuod with I'ronioto:- Tex Rlckard, agreeing to fight the champion, llempi-ey. victor over T'jiii Gibbons by dei'i^iou >.oily Tifter his opponent had gone the full la rounds at Shelby, was not at the ringside last night, But his manager, .lack Kearns, was present and he told newspaper men his protege wad ready for Firpo anytime. ".Labor day?" some one cried. . "Anytime." Favor Champion. Critica who havo seen both Pemp- soy and Kirpo in action indicated today thai, should a match be arranged this summer, their choice would be the champion. 3-Jumpsey, -with hia years in the ring, IK a master of fisticuffs. He has an arsenal of blows, as varied as they are powerful. He is still lu hid prime. Firpo, on the other hand, la attll green. His mont powerful blow Is still his right swing. His much touted left, said to have been developed •by his veteran trainer, Jimmy Deforest, hardly whipped out once last night, and then it had no sting. Ho sliil rushes to the attack leaving vulnerable ^pots unguarded. Ho is Natural Fighter. WUlard did more than any of his previous opponents in holding his wicked right In cheek, but even the , former champion weakened when 3 onco it got through his defense. Had* ,! | tho Kansas giant fought anything but i J a defensive battle, a different tale 3 I might be told. J But despite tho of his <M form, Flrpo Is a natural fighter. He j haH develop'd rapidly and has stamina and grit. Youth is on Ids side, Whether ho could tako without, wincing the tcrriYic blows which sent WU­ lard spinning BOY en timon to the mat whon the latter faced Pempaey at Toledo, remains yet to he seen. But Willard has something to say on this subject. Willard, who has taken blows from both men, declared in hia looker room last night that Firpo wa3 "a good, tough hitter," and woud make "<i great match for the champion." k-fi u>r J UPS drove homo R right to the sUb of the head RH th« boll goundod.

The .program as orlgiinally arranged, called for Johnson to meet Jack Mc- Ajiliffo of Detroit Just before the main bout. But this was switched at tho •last minute eo (hat it formc-d an epilogue to the chief attraction, tho idea 'iieing that iiart of the 100,000 would depart after the Wlllurd-Flrpo go and the rust would linger for the leaser show. This would have been all very well tf Johnson had not knocked q»it Mc- Auliffo very dramatically, one minute and four seconds after''they began fighting. This upset all tho dope, for McAullffe had lantc-d three rounds against FiriK> ait the milk fund bouts held recently In tic Yankeo Stadium. If the Johnson-Oilo^uliffe bout had not been an anti-climax, it would have attracted coniddcrable more attontilon for it was a brief but startling opisodo of the ring. 'Johnson Jumped into the fight at tho very start and began haltering his opponent around tho rinjr. In a few seconds ho had him fiat on his back. Tils head hit tho canvas) like a piledriver. He got up, 'but.the fight was all knocked out of him and lu another instant Johnson had driven him half way through the ropes and left him in a sitting posture on the edge of tho ring. The Detroit 'boxer crawled back int-i the ring, but neyor rose from his kne^j; until after Joo Jeanette, negro pugilist, who was rerereelng the match, had counted ten. No moro on tho homo lot for , about a week. The Shockers open a 3-game series at Topeka tomorrow and go from there to Independence for a 3-game scries starting Tuesday, They return here a week from today. —x— Fans In passing Judgment on Shoots must remember the fleet one is a fly chaser first and a short stop secondly. There's no use to yoll for f'urtell. He probably couldn't do as well becaune ot his lame hand. Dear President Moll: Won't you please send us an umpire with a small degree nf self control and ability. Wo thought onco Wilkinson was a Good umpire but President Moil, good umpires never pay heed to a few raspberries- from the stand. At least they do not *waste time talking back, piuirling and raging up and down and gt)lng off and hiding where no one can ee-o them. They do not iieuailK'i homo • because of heckling of fans. The fan Is a funny animal. He pays hi* six-bits for fun and bo will have it ono way or another. It's always open season on umpiring and as a rule if an umps is guessing '«m throe- fourths right he gets no concerted attack. Honest proxy, this guy has been awful for three days. If he has sun stroke which we strongly suspect, •hector get him out of tho Kansas sun. He'll be raving 'mad in a little while if you don't. Yours truly. One who CAN'T got up and leave. Exhibitions such as yesterday's do moro to keep dawn gate receipts than anything. The Shockers need tho money, ,to.>. With crowds averaging about 200, excepting yesterday, when there, was really a decent bunch on hand, the team has ibeofi going into the hole a gtiod $100 a day. The visiting team gets $100 every day and the total running expenses of the team will exceed ,?100 a day.

July 13. —Tho "second battlo of the century" passed Into prize ring hlBtory today and with it a new record for tight crowds anywhere In tho world. More than 100,000, according to promoters' estimates thronged to overflowing tho great bowl ot Boyle's Thirty Acres and around 25,000 more were turned away in the last hours' rush for the gates. Btandlng out in striking contrast to that vast spectacle of promotion to ring followers was the financial debacle ot the Doiapsey-Gibbons title match at Bholby, Mont., a falluro fresh In the minds of hundreds -who woro atj the ringside, last night. In that contrast tboy saw tho lesson of tha futility of solectlng boom townB for thai staging of .Important fights. Noarly all ot the 100,000 who paid, K was estimated, around $400,000 to see the Wlllurtllftrpo battle were within coni- liarativOly easy reaoh of tlio arena. With, a following of such proportion from whioh to draw tho rlBk of financial loss, such as that at Shelby is rs- rhicod to a minimum , Price* Were Lower, Figured on tho $100,000 estimate, Wlllard's share will bu about $120,000. and Flrpo'o $80,000, The sculo oj priceB was among the lowest on'record for an attraction of the show's calibre. It ranged from $1 to $16 50 wtth « Blue Lodge and .Eastern .Star Members and Families Are Invited. Frankenhbff .always was a jinx to tho Shockers. He is a good, coffsist- ont hitter at tho outset and ho was always more effective ou tho local lot It seems. It was so in 192!i..wheu ho was with Independence. —x— Ackwright evidently profiled by Hwnry 'H experience of tho previous day, for ho certainly had fashion's number on his first threo trips up. A-Sier that things got to a stage where it Is vlpubtful whether the fllngL -r tried very hard to keep 'em out ot tho groove. Ted Waring Is still weak in the catching department, being forced to dopeud on tho youngster, Fisher for all tho backstop-ping chores. Fisher tries hard enough but ho hasn't shown any marked ahllity here. I.rfim,b, the exporiouced receiver obtained by Waring from Kansas City has ruined himself for this year by going into tho game and throwing hard with a cold In tho wing. He was finally sent home. Jlmmle Foster had his best day yet. Ho handled eleven chances There Is to be a big Masonic picnic at Carey lake on tho afternoon and evening of Wednesday, July 26* from 2:30 on. All of the members of the Blue lodge and of the Eastern Star, and their famllloa, especially tho children, will go there either by" street car or by automobile. Those who drive their own cars will be given froe tickets to tho grounds and thoao who go by street oar will bo given free street car transportation to.the lake. Mvory family la to bring a basket ot food and It will he a basket supper, sorved at 6.80. There will be a film for the folks who are there In the evening. Thoro lfl boating fqr all and plenty of shade and entertainment- AH members of the Masonio Blue lodga or tho Eastern Star, here or from other places, are asked to come, bring their baiikota anil spend a pleasant aftornoon and evening. without a hobble and for tho first time really covered territory. Ho 1 " looked as good as he did In preseason practice and continuance of such play should laud him somewhere. Waring began to get a trifle, wor- N riod in the seventh, remembering periiaps the seventh Inning rally in the first game when the Shockers scored seven. He kept Tommy Meeks warming up on th side lines from then until the end of the game. This afternoon's game will not ' reach five innings If Wilkinson doesn't show moiaj hustle than he did yesterday. It is to be called at 4:3d to penult the Bearcats to catch a train for home. The Salina Millers today sta.ud as undisputed leaders of tho Southwestern league with six wins and two losses this season. The Millers have taken Hartles- ville and Coffeyville for five , straight games after dropping the opening series to Sapulpa. —x— Tod Waring says there Is no vast Improvement in tho Millers and that he looks for the samo kind ot a slump when tho team goes on tho road. The Millers fared well in home games during the firBt season, always falling wbilo ou tho road. % —x— The Wheat Shockers must win tilts afternoon to cop the Bartlesvillo series. A victory for the Shockers will make tho team even for tho season in gam 03 won and lost. —x— Hutchinson hasn't been such a good team on tho road either, though somewhat hotter than Salina. Tho Shockers will bO pitted against two strengthened northern teams starting tomorrow. Hob Goodo probably will open tho Topeka series and Ixitty Pierce will, likely oppose him. —x— Dunn, the 17-year-old Oklahoma high school boy who broke into tho league for Gear with such a splash has been lil but is reported to be recovering and will soon bo ready to try his fortunes again. _ x _ Wlld Bill Mitcheli ot the Kaws seems to havo definitely arrived. He pitched his fourth straight vistory against tho Mots yesterday. ' .Muskogee is clamoring loudly for ro-instalcment of Roy Corgnn as manager. They would rather see Barbour managing his theatrical enterprises. <!organ is very popular at Muskogee and tlio big attendance slump there iu said to havo been due largely to falluro of Barbour to recall, the 1922 skipper.
