Pugilistic ability is seen as the antidote for anti-Semitism in the opinion of Arthur Brisbane. Commenting on the Leonard-Tendler fight in his column in the Hearst papers, entitled “Today”, Brisbane declares that Bennie Leonard’s ability to defeat any Christian fighter of his class has done more to foster respect for Jews than the entire galaxy of brilliant Jewish authors. “Such is the state of our civilization” is Brisbane’s pessimistic conclusion.
