Joe Calls ‘Next’ By SAM KAGAN ^^’ennyson’s brook, Joe Louis seems to go on for ever Come one, come all, he bashes em and then gets ready for the next one. And now after disposing of Arturo Godoy_the “guy who can take eet”—he is waiting around to get a crack at either Tony Galento or Max Baer. That match will probably come off sometime in Sep tember. Mike Jacobs has got a champion who fights with out balking or asking too many questions and the more the mnrp the mazuma. * Back to the 90’# The Galento-Baer brawl will come off in Jersey City on the night of July 2—less than two weeks off. And for back - room brawling the fight should be sim ilar to the escapades of the gay and gallandt ’90’s, when the boys beat it out barehanded in fights that lasted 50 rounds or more. The Baer has been training quite a bit, for a month or so now he has been skipping ropes and calling Galento a bum. The Galento has been training too, for a month or so now he has been bending the elbow over the suds and calling Baer a bum. That’s the way it stacks up. Both will be tough, tougher than you might think, and the fight will probably draw more fans, thougn loss dollars than Louis’ latest championship bout. Right now it looks as if Galento will be the favorite, but Baer is sc unpredic table that guessing is about all it will get you to try and callit. Personally we believe Galento would be a better match for Louis | than Baer, iony is pretty uctci mmed about winning the cham pionship. And besides he might land a lucky punch. Softball Steams Up Wilmington goes in for softball in a big way and apparently there are a few besides the players who like the game. We never could get very excited about it. preferring a good horseshoe pitching match any day both as a participant and watcher. But there are three fast leagues that play at least one game a day in each, these circuits not counting the Sunday school circuits. Every team has its camp of followers and there is not a player in either ! league who doesn’t think more of the game than baseball. Some of the teams in the city are in the game for winning and nothing else and they make no bones about it. Competition is keen, both on the field and in securing players. They are really enthusi astic about playing and we guess it’s like our old friend the Melan choly Dane said, “The play’s the thing.” This and That This poung giant of eGorgetown, A1 Blozis, is setting new records right and left in field and track meets. . . In just about every meet he has entered this year he has stole the show with the flourish of a shop-lifter in a dime store. . . He is also looked upon as an All American football player . . . Larry MacPhail says that cir cumstances are making the Dodg ers pennandt-contenders . . . Be fore the season, Brooklyn only wanted the first division and may be the bunting in 1941, but de velopments made it practical to buy players for the flag this sea son, he says. . . Lou Fette, the Boson Bees’ sensation in 1937, has been claimed on a waiver by the Dodgers and we’re willing to bet that even this castoff will win a few games. 1 _ • Dodgers Get Lou Fette From Bees On Waiver BROOKLYN, June 21.—(#)—The Brooklyn Dodgers announced to night they had claimed Pitcher Lou Fette from the Boston Bees for the waiver price of $7,500. Fette has had arm trouble this year and lost five games while winning none, but in 1937 he cre ated something of a sensation by coming out of the American associ ation to win 20 games for Boston in the National league. Fette’s acquisition brought Brook lyn one above the player limit. Secretary John McDonald said one of the Dodgers’ present cast would be let go before Fette dons a uni form. ROCKY MOUNT WINS ROCKY MOUNT. June 21.—VP)— Norman Brown pitched five-hit ball and fanned 11 men as Rocky Mount defeated Charlotte tonight, 7-1.

June 21—(Jl—The Chi cago White Sox, fresh from three straight victories over the New York Yankees, were easy victims of the Philadelphia Athletics today, bowing by a 12 to 1 score before Lee Ross’ four-hit pitching.

SCHREIBER, WHITE IN MEET FINALS Charlotte Boy Defeats Stark In Semi-Finals Of South ern Amateur Tourney CHATTANOOGA, Term.. June 21 UP)—Ed Schreiber, 18-year-old Charlotte high school graduate, and Neil White, 28-year-old glass sales man of Nashville, stroked their way into the finals of the South ern Amateur golf championship to day by squeezing out 1-up vic tories under the pressure of late rallies. The deliberately-shooting White, former University of Southern Cal ifornia star playing his first tour nament golf in four years, recov ered from a wobbly back nine to beat the veteran Johnny Cum mings, Jr., of Memphis, on the 19th green with a birdie three. Schreiber also faltered coming in but regained his stride in time to trim Bill Stark of Jacksonville Fla., with a par-three on the 18th. Both led through most of the semi-final duels. Schreiber, who plans to enter Duke university, led the long-hitting Stark by 2 up three times, but the seasoned Floridian refused to give up, ral lying to square the match by tak ing the 15th and lGth holes after two great recoveries from traps. After halving the 17th, however, the 240-pound Stark ran into trouble again on the final hole and went one over par. Schreiber shot a three-over-par 73 in the hot afternoon battle after matching par on every hole in the morning quarter-finals to crush Cullen Baker of Nashville, 7 and 6. \ Riggs Beats Van Horn To Enter Meet Finals CHICAGO, June 21.—(5>)—Bobby Riggs, playing a forcing game all the way, qualified for the men's singles final today in the National Clay Courts tennis tournament by defeating young Welby Van Horn, Los Angeles, 6-2, 6-4, 6-4, The outcome of the semi-final test was almost identical to Riggs’ victory over Van Horn in the title round of the National singles at Forest Hills last summer.

BELL’S x A A _ Lj A - A . ■ A _ «!■ - A _ i RED SOX HANDED 7 TO 4 SETBACK Three-Run Circuit Blow In Eighth Breaks Tie And Indians Retain Lead CLEVELAND, June 21 — itfl—Roy (Beau) Bell produced a dramatic three-run homer in the clutch to day to give Cleveland a 7 to 4 comeback triumph over Boston and cement the Indians’ hold on first place. Bell’s eight-inning circuit blow broke up a 4 to 4 tie. overcame two Boston homers and provided the Indians’ sixth straight victory. It was the tenth triumph of the season for Southpaw A1 Milnar. who was touched for ten hits, and the first setback in five decisions for Boston’s Jack Wilson. Milnar has been defeated only twice. The Red Sox grabbed a three run lead in the third inning when youthful Ted Williams hit a homer with the sacks occupied by Wilson and Lou Finney, who made four hits in as many trips. The Indians tied it up in their half. Ken Kellner was hit by a pitched ball and Milnar and Lou Boudreau doubled, the latter eventually scoring on an infield out. The pitchers settled down but when Jimmy Foxx drove for the circuit in the eight—his 17th homer of the year—Boston appeared to have counted the run needed for a 4 to 3 victory. Clsveland didn't give up. how ever. Boudreau walked. Outfielder Roy Weatherly, who made three ^ 1 notnlinc +/"» C V ' \T i 1 n D V further trouble, got a double, anu Rollie Hemsley singled.' Weatherly was out trying to score but Ha! Trosky was purposely passed, bringing up Bell, whod rove Wil son's first pitch over the right field wall. A crowd of 12,000. about half of them ladies’ day patrons, saw the Indians win their eight in nine starts since a dozen Cleveland players complained they couldn’t play winning ball for manager Oscar Vitt. 2 BOSTON Ab R II O ’ Finney, rf _ 4 14 1b Cramer, cf - 5 0 0 3 0 Williams.

The sophomore giant tossed the shotput 56 feet 1-2 inch for a new American and N. C. A. A. record, a performance which overshadow ed the great qualifying place bat tie —staged by the defending team champion, Southern California, and its longtime west coast rival, Stan ford university. Stanford indicated it would make a great bid to crack U. S. C.’s string of five straight team vic tories by gaining eight qualifying places in tomorrow’s finals, tc seven for the Trojans. Considerable confusion surround ed Blozis’ great shot put perform ance because it was made indoors, rain having forced the shot and discus trials into the Gober field house. The question of whether the toss would be recognized as ar American mark was sonsider ed lengthily by the N. C. A. A committee, with the meet referee. Maj. John L. Griffith, announcing it would stand as an America’ standard. 2 Spofford Scores 11-10 Victory Over Sunshine The Spofford, Spinners made ev ery hit count for a run yesterday afternoon as they defeated the Sun shine Laundry ten 11 to 10 in a Commercial league game played at Robert Strange park.

AAA AAA es Triumph Over McColl Nine, 10-5 - - ---- K Winner Of Galento-Baer Bout To Be Next In Line For Louis D1 Oil! S H l !l NEW YORK, June 21 —iff)—Joe Louis, a successful young man rapidly nearing the two-million mark in earnings from his fists, pocketed a $55,589 check today for his latest chopping block job and learned that his next outing will be against either two ton Tony Ga lento or madcap Maxie Baer. Promoter Mike Jacobs, agreeing with most folks that the brown bomber turned in one of the most "artistic" performances in cutting down Arturo the gallant Godoy m eight rounds last night, announc ed the winner of the Galento-Baer bombing in Jersey City July 2 would be the next tasty dish serv ed up to the heavyweight champi on, probably in September. The site depends entirely on which fellow walks out of the Jersey City ball park with the other guy’s scaip. If Galcnto wins, he will tangle with Louis here, largely because in his four-round stand against the bomber last .'.-ear, when he had Joe on the verge o! a knockout once and sitting on the] lloor on another occasion, he creat ed a lot of interest amng the cash ! customers for a return match. If Baer comes through against ! Galcnto. he and Louis will fight ] it out in Chicago. Baer’s poor showing against Louis here in their ‘first meeting five years ago still I doesn't sit too well with Mr. Local ; Fan. Louis showed up at "Uncle | Mike's Mitt Salon” personally to day to collect for last night's work. He didn't have a mark on him. i Godoy on the other hand visited a doctor early. Eight stitches were needed to sew up the tear in his j left eye and three mre were taken j to fix the right. He will rest for I (. II CIciVO diivx uitJi navt mo taken out. "After that,” manager A1 Weil) announced, “We’ll be ready to fight anybody again. Godoy showed his gameness and toughness last night, and any contender for Louis' title should have to whip Arturo first.” Godoy not only lost the fight last night, but as he climbed pain fully out of the ring he walkded into more difficulties. Attachment papers were served on him claim ing $50,000 on behalf of Mrs. Lou Bouey. widow of a Chileon country man who- once managed him. Bouey died about two years ago. and Lou Brix, a local fistic figure, became his manager. But Mrs. Bouey insists she still was entitled to a share of Arturo’s earnings. Weill contends all previous con tracts had expired when he signed the fighter last winter. He had the foresight to file with the com mission a prior assignment on Godoy's earnings before last night's bout. Louis's going to “scout” Baer and Galento at their training camps in New Jersey over the week end. Then he'll shoot a little golf at Atlantic City before return ing to take in their fight. He in dicated he liked Galento to win, but pointed out “ah guess the fust one who gets cut'll be the guy who loses.” With his latest “take” — his share of a gross gate of 14,505— Louis’ earnings for the 47 fights i i his career now stand at SI.704, ' 41.24 Godoy collected $23,620 for the beating he took. As far as Louis is concerned, it's nice work if you can get it. As for Godoy, a fellow might think twice as to whether it's worth it. 2 Champs End Five Game Los ing: Streak With' 17-flit Bom bardment On Bengals ■ DETROIT. June 21—bP-The world champion New York Yank ees —showed today they still pack plenty of dynamite in their i ats by firing a 17-hit bombardment against four Detroit pitchers and sinking the Tigers 12 to 7.

Dodgers HoldLoop Lead' By Beating Bugs, 10-8 TV i VIT VAT I T> HAMLIN uLoLKIo BROOKLYN CAMP 20-Game Winner Of 1939 Sore At Bawling Out From Larry MacPhail BROOKLYN, June 21 —I®— As an official of the Brooklyn Dodgers said today: ‘‘Nossir, there’s never a dull moment around good old Ebbets Field”. Luke Hamlin, the Flatbush Fusi leers’ only 20-game winner last year, is hiding out now, brooding over a bawling-out he got last ■Tuesday from President Larry MacPhail. It was noted two days ago that Hamlin was absent from the .Diuutt.i.yii uenui, uui lvictujriictii was so busy raising sand about the beaning of Joe Medwick that he didn’t get around to the strange case of Luke until today. “He (Hamlin) has a habit of threatening to desert his team”, said the red-head. —“The other day I told him to go home in a hurry if that is what he wanted to do.” So Luke apparently lit out. He could not be raised at his apart ment here, and it was thought possible he had gone to his home at Lansing, Mich. Hamlin, who is famous for his “home run ball”, incurred Mac Phail’s wrath by blowing 4 to C and 5 to 3 leads over the Cardinals on Tuesday, the same day Med wick was laid low. Medwick came out of the hospital yesterday and probably will be back in the lineup within a week, but the Hamlir situation threatens to linger on. What Luke can’t understand is why MacPhail should suddenly be come violent about his "home rur ball”. After all, Hamlin used the same pitch last year, allowing ar average of one homer each 10 in nings for the season. Yet he was acclaimed a hero. His loss would prove a serious one- to the flag-chasing Dodgers. With all his laxity in the pinches, Luke has a winning record of C to 3, and on June 14 he stopped the Cincinnati Reds with a two hitter. Meantime, president Ford Frick of the national league ex onertated Pitcher Bob Bowman oi the Cardinals in the beaning oi Medwick. He said there was nc e', idence whatsoever that Bowman had struck Medwick purposely. Shortstop Harold (Pee Wee) Reese, who was beaned June 1 in a game at Chicago, returned to the Dodgers line up in today’s opening game against Pittsburgh. - Pearson Hurls Phils To 6-5 Win Over Cubs PHILADELPHIA, June 21—UP!
