WE HAVE THE TWO PIECE KIND WITH
THE WHITE BELT
GEO. J. MOE, "Sport Shop"
Naturally, I ain't the kind to knock
anybody but when I saw Willard and
Dempsey, they none of them had any-
thing but a couple of gloves. Why, in
Willard's camp, strictly speakin',
hardly no action took place. Nobody
was knocked loose from the floor, like
I epected and Willard was so slow
that Monaghan could of hit Jess with
a ring post, only Walter was too grog-
gy to even lamp one. Well, we
couldn't see any improvement in Wil-
lard. He eats as much as ever and
he's just as big and good natured. So
after talkin' with Jess for a time we
couldn't help feelin' sorry for Demp-
sey, for we don't think Dempsey has
got a chance against the big boy when
they step into the ring. Dempsey
ought not even go into the ring. Wil-
lard is a convincing talker.
Well, we didn't bring our machine
with us to Toledo, strictly speakin'
because we had heard all hotels were
filled and garage -men were getting
three smackers per seat per capita in
vacant buses over night. We hated to
hire our car out for use as an im-
promptu hotel and we hated to pay
the three smackers per, so we slept
on the beach. It was cheaper and
safer. Besides I like all healthy ex-
ercises. All this leads me to say, as
it were, that we had to therefore,
walk to Dempsey's camp. Well, when
they said that Dempsey was trainin'
at Maumee Bay, we had no idea he1
was trainin' in the bay. I asked a
bug on the shore among the crowd,
who was gonna stage the new vaude-
ville act of trained seals. He looked
at me and wanted for me to show my
ignorance I guess, by blushing, as it
were, 'cause what I thought was a
seal was only none other than Demp-
sey swimming in the bay.
Well, sir, I didn't get a ring side
seat for my half rock, and when two
dark birds climbed in the ring I asked
if they was stagin' a prelim as it were,
until Dempsey got dried. Well, again
they showed my ignorance when they
told me the white fellow was Demp-
sey. I looked among the seconds for
Jack and some dude near by whisper-

REPORTS ON JULY 4 BOUT
Reports on the Willard-Demp-
sey bout will be received round by
round at the Knights of Columbus
rooms over Calkins' drug store.
No admission will be charged to
those wishing to hear the reports.
The preliminaries, as well as the
big fight, will be covered, begin-
ning at 10 o'clock Friday morning.
A number of these dresses formerly higher priced, will be
sold Saturday at this low figure.
The dresses themselves are unusually fine values, and the
sale comes at the very time women are wanting these cool sum-
mer frocks most!
Both light and dark patterned voiles are included in this
collection, but the 4emphasis is on the darker shades, which are
just as cool and far .more practical than those of lighter hue!
One frock in blue and, white foulard patterns, is trimmed
with collar, cuffs, and bands of dark blue taffeta. A demure
frock of gray and white block checked voile has sleeves wide at
the wrist with crisp white organdie collars and cuffs. It is trim-
med with the oddest pearl buttons, fastened on with wisps of the
A blue and white dotted voile dress has rather large green
coin dots scattered over its surface. Simple, but oh so effective,
is a frock developed in the tiniest of black and white diagonal
checks, with a narrow black tie of gros grain ribbon!

They are not "just white skirts"-they are white skirts with
individuality. For instance can't you imagine one of fine white
gabardine which buttons all the way down one ,side with large
pearl buttons, and has a long slit- pocket on the other side? Its
belt is a queer tucked affair such as you seldom see. Then there
is another skirt which opens to the side front with dozens of tiny
pearl buttons. It too has a slit pocket on the other side. Hem-
stitching is used in many interesting ways, and there is no end of
clever designing shown in the treatment of pockets!
Pique and gabardine are the materials.
