CHICAGO, Aug. 9-The smolder-
ing controversy over the referee-
ing of the Dempsey-Tunney world
heavyweight championship fight at
Soldier Field in September, 1927 to-
day had burst into flame with the
assertion of Paul Prehn, president
of the National Boxing association,
that he was offiered $10,000 to urge:
a particular individual as referee
of the bout.
Prehn, who recently was ousted
as chairman of the Illinois state
athletic commission, said he was
approached by a gambler, whose.
name he refused to divulge, who
made the proffer, saying he wish-
ed to assure himself that the third
man in the ring would not be pro-
Tunney. The man was not select-
ed, Prehn said.
Prehn hastened to say that he
was certain Dempsey had nothing
to do with the affair.
"Dempsey probably never heard,
of the offer, and I am certain no
member of hid camp was iin-j
