Sport Of Kings By SAM RAGAN ^Sause North Carolinians consider horse racing only a sport for degenerates, the sport of kings and all that goes with it is not so familiar to this section todaj as it was in the day of grandpa who liked very, well the sound of drumming hooves. But in points north, westward and south too, horse racing is something on which a great part of the populace lives and breathes. Pari-mutuel betting is being allowed in a number of the states now, New York being the latest to collect the duty on something that will always go on. LOST tULUtt However, when the government clamped down on Annenberg and his turf information wire service end sheets, America lost some thing of its color. For with that gone, there went with it the two flights-down joint where men of all creeds, color and character gathered at race time to lay a wager and wait for the returns. Annenberg had a racket and made the most of it. Some joints were crooked and some were not, but the government made no distinc tion. There the talk was on horses and strange characters—racing in their blood—were on hand to pass out tips. For the time being that part of the sport is out, but it will be back or America is not what I think it is. For people will keep on betting and as long as there’s a horse to run somebody will have a bob on the nose. It’s something that just happens and you can t do any thing about it. Tiger Talk A team that no one even figured on is a very serious contender for the American league pennant. The Tigers of etroit are now on top in the loop, the first time they have been in first place in July since they finished first in 1935. When Judge Landis broke up the Detroit farm system last winter, everyone thought the Bengals were out of the running for this year at least. But Manager Del Baker switched some of his players about, rejuvenated Schoolboy Bowe, uncovered young Harold Newhouser ana gave loimuj Bridges enough encouragement to keep mowing ’em down and start ed heading the right way. And when the Tigers got going, one of the big reasons why they were not stopped was old Show boat Buck Newsom, the South Carolinian, and former Wilming ton Pirate pitcher. Newsom, en couraged by the idea of being on a possible pennant-winning team, has won 11 consecutive games since the season got under way. He lost his only game on opening day to the Browns. The Tigers’ hitting is sure to improve some from what it is now, and if it does they will be clicking mighty well when the present top teams go into the home stretch. And the team that clicks in the final lap is the best bet to win the bunting in the junior circuit. Here and There The Wilmington Juniors feel sor ta lucky in getting out of Selma Monday without serious injury . . . During an argument around home plate, four Selma cops rushed on the field with blackjacks and al though without uniforms or badges they added weight to the Johnston county boys’ arguments. . .

J., July 2.— (iP)—Unpre dictable Maxie Baer, still no more consistent than the weather, got "hot” tonight and chilled Tony Galento in eight rounds, thereby de fying any and all comers to chal lenge his right to the championship of the screwballs. With an assist from Tony’s broth er, who bounced a beer glass off the Galento chin in a bar-room row two nights ago, the former heavy weight boss cut the walking beer keg's mouth so badly that. Referee Joe Mangold halted the fight just as tfle bell sounded to start the eighth round, giving Maxie a technical knockout. Up to that point, the playboy pounder of the Pacific had banged Tony's face with such damaging ef fect. that at the finish blood dripped from the end of Galento's chin like a leaky faucet. Near Capacity Crowd A near capacity crowd in this In ternational league ball-park cheered Max on as he stopped the 1 to 2 favorite in the long-heralded “battle of the bums." With his triumph, Maxie also won another chance at heavyweight king Joe Louis, an honor he may not wel come. He was counted out on one knee in the fourth round when he went against the Bomber in 1935. And the chances are that as an older and wiser head now, he won’t exact ly starr the bands playing ^ second encounter, which Promoter Mike Jacobs has tentatively sched uled for Chicago in September. The beating wasn’t all that hap pened to Tony tonight. He not only wound up with a mouth cut clean through, requiring six stitches, but his left hand was broken in the sec ond round when he bounced a wild swing off the top of Maxie's head. Then, before they ever got into the ring, it was learned Caswell (Keppel) Jacobs, brother of Tony’s late man ager, Joe Jacobs, had served papers on Promoter Mike Jacobs attaching Galento’s end of the purse on behalf of Joe’s surviving relatives — two brothers and a sister. Wrestled Midget Maxie wasn’t supposed to be in good enough condition to stand up four rounds tonight, but he must have been holding out on the boys. For, while he .was tired at the fin ish, he didn’t look as though he d need to leave in a wheel chair. In fact, a midget climbed into the ring as Galento walked out, and Maxie, as serious as usual, wrestled on the floor with him for several moments. Baer did an expert job for the seven rounds the fight lasted but, in all fairness, he ought to "cut” Tony's brother, Russell, in on his purse. For Russell’s high hard one with the beer glass cut Tony’s chin two nights ago, and it was this gash, enlarged and deepened, which brought Baer the victory. In the first round, this bigger Baer—he weighed 221 1-2 to Tony s 244 i.o—went to work on that cut, and had it opened in the first two minutes. Frm othere on, he just aimed at this target like a S° ing after grandpa s red Gauuft . Tony’s mouth wasn’t a pretty thing t0 See when the fight ended, just after Whitey Bimstein. one of his seconds, had summoned the referee to examine the wound. Butted With Zing AS expected and advertised, these two stretched the Marquis Queensbury rules a bit. °nce “ * rushed in and butted Max unde the chin with as much zing as he could put behind it. Max Rail ed over the ropes, spitting teeth and blood, and the referee warned Tonv This round was taken fiom Galento for his fouling, but it was Maxie’s on merit anyway. Tony also gave quite an exhibi tion of backhanaing on while Max, not to be outdone held up his end by hitting on the area-, once in a while, and leaning on Tony in the clinches until the ref eree warned him to desist. Maxie also brought his occasional clowning, grinning tactics into play In the first round, he grinned when'Tony bounced a left off his chin. Then, he ducked under Tony s next three swings, came up inside with short rights and lefts ana scored plenty. Both were bleeding in the second Baer from his nose. In the third, both looked tired enough to ask for a night’s lodging. After that the pace slowed somewhat, and the referee was the hardest working man in the ring, parting them about five times a minute. The referee, probably was the best con ditioned man inside the ropes, too. Midway of the seventh, it became clear that Max had the fight in his pocket, although Toijy still charged in, only to be met with ctiff, straight punches. Once Galento charged half way across the ring, swinging, and, as Baer side-stepped, Tony stumbled to one knee. For the benefit of fistic his torians, this was the 19th anniver sary of Jack Dempsey's tussle with Georges Carpentier ib this town. There was no resemblance in the two. Tonight’s was strictly a brawl. It started, in faot, at the weigh in when they squared off to pose for photographers. Tony cuffed Max’s arm, and Max countered with a right aimed at the body before their handlers stopped it. In the dressing rooms afterward, Max let the folks in on the secret that Joe Louis had told him ho*v to fight Tony. “The old champ here," he point ed to the Bomber, who had crowd ed into the room, “came up to my camp and showed me what to do. Boy, he really did a «ood job didn’t he.” Gnlento, meantime, howled for a return match. “I can lick dat bum” he moaned through his puf fed lips. “I got a tough Dreak tonight, but I shoulda flattened i him anyway.” Pirates To Play May Nine Here Tonight Carleton Hurls Dodgers To 4-1 Win Over Phils ' ' ** w — — ■— - Veteran Allows But Three Hits As Medwick Leads Brooklyn Batting Attack PHILADELPHIA, July 2—(A>)— The Brooklyn Dodgers challenged for the National league lead today with a 4 to 1 triumph over the last place Phillies on Tex Carleton’s three-hit pitching. Until the seventh inning the struggle was a glove-tight hurling duel between Carleton and Ike Pearson of the Phils. Neither gave a hit i nthe first four frames and it remained for Joe Medwick of the Dodgers to break the ice in the fifth with his first home run since joining Brooklyn and his fourth of the season. The Phillies immediately tied up the score in their half of the fifth on a walk, the only one of the game, and a triple by Art Mahan. This deadlock was broken by Brooklyn with a three-run cluster on four hits in the seventh. Med wick started this, too, with a sin gle, went to third on Babe Phelps’ single and scored on a single by Dolph Camilli.
