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.
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
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.
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.

IN EIGHTH ROUND
Max Reopens Tony’s Cut Chin
And Pounds Away For Easy
Win; Galento’s Hand Broken
BY SID FEDER
ROOSEVELT STADIUM, JERSEY
CITY', N. 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
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.
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
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
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

The Brooklyn Dodgers challenged

with a 4 to 1 triumph over the last

Until the seventh inning the
struggle was a glove-tight hurling

This deadlock was broken by
Brooklyn with a three-run cluster
