POP'S BOY . . .
(Continued from Last Week)
Corbett moved in swiftly,
brushing past the referee, his
slitted eyes like dark embrasures
in which hot lights gleamed,
striving for the finishing blow
while the remnants of fog still
dung to his adversary’s brain.
Dave plunged toward him,
smothering his blows, reaching
out for him, rushing him back
wards into the ropes, drinking in
great draughts of strength with
every breath, finding a swift tide
of power, like Anteas, in the very
feel of the solid floor beneath his
feet. He was stronger than Cor
bett at the beginning but now he
was doubly strong, anger pouring
through his veins like molten
steel, feather-edging his reflexes
so that his very speed cancelled
the peril his recklessness incur
red. He cornered Corbett against
the ropes and dragged him sav
agely along the strands, knowing
they were burning broad crimson
welts across Corbett’s back,
stamping on his feet, urtiile the
referee strove desperately to
break them ...
The crowd was on its feet, its
roar muted, sensing that the Mar
quis of Queensberry had abdicat-
to the codeless rule of Pier
Six.
Dave pressed him against the
ropes as Corbett strove to escape
bis entrapment, to avoid the head
being gouged into his face, the
arms pumping into his body and
looping upward to his head. Dave
wrestled him fiercely along the
r °pes, holding him there through
sheer brute strength and weight.
His punches „ had little actual
shock power, but when Dave
struck, he struck with the heel of

places with every blow.
The referee finally managed to
crash between them. Dave struck
on the break, deliberately miss
ing, but following through so
that, while his glove went by, his
elbow smashed, apparently acci
dentally, into Corbett’s face.
Corbett staggered and, as Dave
charged in again, jerked his knee
up i& such an obvious foul that
the crowd broke into a mighty
howl.- But Dave had already
half-turned, catching Corbett’s
knee-cap on his thigh, his left

murderous impact against Cor

lars and handed them to him.
Pop set down his cup of hot
tea. “What’s that for?” he asked
a bit absently. Somehow, Pop
seemed to have aged in the last
couple of hours; the lines in his
face were deeper and his skin
had a yellowish cast. He looked
very tired . . .
“Why,” Dave pointed out, a
trifle puzzled, “your twenty-five
percent. That’s the regular cut,
isn’t it?”
“You don’t owe me nothin’,
son.” He pushed the money a
way.
Dave blinked, non-plused. “But
—but you got it coming to you.”
“I get mine from the promoter.
Forget it.” Pop glanced at the
clock on the wall. “J. D. oughta

Dave stared at the money in

—gee—” He hesitated awkward
ly. “That’s awfully nice of you.”
“Have another glassa milk,”
Pop invited gruffly. “Sorry ya
can’t eat.” He summoned the
waiter and ordered another pot
of tea for himself and a glass of
milk for Dave, warm, so that the
nerve of his shattered tooth
might better tolerate it.
Dave sipped his milk in silence
a few moments. “I’m sorry I
had to fight dirty,” he said pres
ently. “You saw what he did.”
Pop nodded, staring into his
tea-cup. “You figure on gradu

Dave stood up, but Pop just sat
there, smiling wanly.
“Aint yuh cornin’ to the station

Pop shook his head. “Tell ya

He pulled off his spectacles, and
sighed. “I better just stay here

Dave grasped his hand. “So
long, Pop—and thanks a million.”
He turned and followed J. D. At
the door he glanced back, waving
a final salute.
Pop stared through Dave, his
yellow eyes empty.

Rabbi Solomon Shapiro
“The cultural treasures des
troyed by the Nazis and the books
which they burned can never be
replaced, any more than our
6,000,000 dead martyrs can be re
stored to us. But the printing
of the new edition of the Talmud
in Germany represents a small
measure of moral restitution to
the Jewish people for all we have
lost”.
The speaker was Rabbi Solo
mon Shapiro, reporting last week
at JDC’s international head
quarters, 270 Madison Avenue,
New York, after three years of
distinguished service as JDC
Religious Director for Germany
and Austria.
“Through this printing a full
cycle has been completed this
is the first Hebrew religious
work to be printed in Germany
since Hitler came into power,”
Rabbi Shapiro stated.
As he spoke, the young rabbi
gently opened a copy of the
