Since you appeared to be stumped by questions #3, #7, and #8 I'll put you out of your misery and provide the answers:

#3. Tuneey won the fight. It was famous for the 'long count' caused by Dempsey failure to go to a neutral corner after knocking down Tunney in round seven.

#7. Babe Ruth's 60th home run was surrendered by Tom Zachary of the Washington Senators.

#8. Charles Lindberg's aviation feat won him the Orteig Prize--$25,000.
