Sports Serves Short – Strength Magazine – March, 1930

Of recent developments in the sporting world we feel that much more than passing interest is due the announcement made a short time ago that the breach of promise suit against Gene Tunney, retired heavyweight champion, had been settled entirely in favor of the champion. No need to go into details -the public press has already aired them-but we do feel that this incident should receive the smile of approval from everyone, even those who may not care for Tunney personally, because it marks one palpable attempt at extortion directed at a famous athlete which didn’t click as per expectations.
