FLAG WIN CALLED
TOP FEAT OF 1035
Frick Looks for Big Year
for League Approaching
Sixtieth Birthday.
BY FORD FRICK,
President the National League.
(Written for the Associated Press.)
NCW YORK, January 4.—Per
spective is building up with
each passing month to make
that September 2'1 game-win
ning streak of the Chicago Cubs stand
out stronger, taller and brighter
against the skyline of the 1935 sports
calendar.
We are beginning to realize now
that we saw unfolded a page of base
ball history in the making. Twenty
one straight victories! From third
place to the pennant! The Cubs’
conquest of the National League's
1935 championship truly belongs in
base ball's gallery of immortal ex
ploits.
It wasn't the longest winning streak
In base ball history. The New York
Giants of 1916 won 26 in a row. the
all-time major league record. ThPir's
Was a September drive, too, but with
out a pennant as its climax.
Reds Speed Tempo.
"AS THE background builds up
around the 1935 season, the pic
ture also suggests the pennant drive
of the Boston Braves in 1914. Those
Braves, under George Stalling's com
mand. had no streak as long as 26
or 21. but they charged up the
pennant hill all the way front last
place.
The Cubs in 1935 weren't dark
horses, nor did they win as many as
26 straight, but to my mind they be
long in that very select group with
the Braves of 1914 and the Giants of
1916.
Until the Cubs launched their
rampage, the St. Louis Cardinals gave
every evidence of becoming the head
liners of this annual review. In July
and August the Cards launched a
drive reminiscent of the one that car
ried them to the pennant and world
championship in 1934. In fact, it
took something of a history-making
nature, such as the Chicago streak, to
relegate the Redbirds to second place

too. back there in the Spring, and
that opening drive of Casey Stengel's
men stands as one of our season's
bright spots. Pittsburgh provided the
chief pitching sensation in the person
of Cy Blanton, who wound up the sea
son at the top of the list in the earned
run rankings, a most remarkable
•chievement for a freshman.
Philadelphia, in the second year of
Jimmy Wilson's management, made
rapid strides toward developing a pow
erful team. One of the best achieve
ments of the year came right at the
close with the reorganization of the
Boston Braves. Thanks to Bob Quinn's
taking the helm there, the outlook for
National League base ball in Boston
is very promising.

even more than 1935. All prospects
point that way and for our league the
year will stand out a bit more promi

our 60th birthday on February 2.
The foundation of major league base
ball, as we know it today, dates from

.1 THE SPORTLIGHT
Louis Is Rated Superior to Dempsey
When Man Mauler Was in His Prime.
_BY GRANTLAND RICE_
DKir iiinlt more man once into
the pale pink-gray hour of
dawn. I've listened to old
timers and younger experts
attempt to compare Joe Louis with the
best heavyweights of the past.
Who would have been his toughest
opponent? Skillful Jim Corbett, Bob
Fitzsimmons, who could both box and
| punch: rugged Jim Jeffries. Jark
Johnson, Dempjsey, Tunney? Few have
arrived at any set conclusion.
In my opinion, the fighter who
would havr bothered Joe Louis
as much as any one else was
Harry Greb at his peak.
Here was a streak of raw lightning.
B’hn of rvrto lima r\r onAthcr etrormaW
all over such
fighters as Tun
k ney. Gibbons and
S Brennan—includ
E ing Jack Dempsey
pi in a training
Wt camp workout.
Louis, a younger
| fighter, never has
■ experienced any
thing like one of
those early Greb
M cyclones, with
■ both fists and
byth elbows w :k
£ ing like the
_ . ^ huu&rs in nn cicc
| J«k D.»p«>, trl(. fan Greb.s
j whirlwind attack might have kept
| Louis off Dalance, for it isn’t easy to
j counter-punch with a flurry of gloves
landing on nose, chin and mouth. I'm
speaking of the Greb who had two
good eyes.
Since he moved up no one yet has
come close to crowding Louis from a
perfect, double-footed balance that
leaves him ready to hit with either
hand.
The Dempsey of 1919.
t>UT the phantom show that starts
and closes most of these argu
ments is built around the Jack
Dempsey of - 1919 and the Joe Louis
of 1935.
In 1919, Jack Dempsey had grey
i hound speed. He was a weaving,
shifting target, not only fast on his
feet, but fast with either hand. He
had the lash of a leopard with either
left or right. He wasn't the boxer
that Louis is and he was no faster
with his hands. But his foot action
would take him in and out quicker
than the Louis shuffle moves around.
On top of this, Dempsey had
what Jim Corbett called "the
greatest ring spirit I ever saw,
not even barring John L. Sulli
van."
He had an iron jaw and his attack
usually w'as a two-fisted explosion.
Don’t forget that, on his way up,
Dempsey almost wrecked such fighters
as Bill Brennan, Gunboat Smith. Carl
Morris and Fred Fulton. Fulton had
a fine left hand in those days and he
wasn’t any flop as a boxer. But
Dempsey caught and closed him out
in 18 seconds.
Willard was a better fighter than
uamera. ana so was nrpo. At least,
I'd have liked Willard or Firpo
against Camera at even money. But
Dempsey stopped one in three rounds
and the other in less than two.
Odds Against the Mauler.
IN A Louis. 1935. and a Dempsey,
j 1 1919. meeting, the odds would have
| been against the Old Mauler for the
! simple reason that good boxers always
| gave him trouble—Gibbons at Shelby,
| Tunnev at Philadelphia and at Chi
! cago—Greb and Loughran in training
I camp workouts. Hard punchers have
trouble in nailing moving targets.
Against this opinion, no one
knows how Louis would look
against first-class competition.
He has to be taken largely on
faith in form.
The opposing maneuvers offered by
Camera. Levinsky and Baer proved
nothing. The three together made
! little more than a threatening gesture.
He cut the feet from under one pretty
good boxer, Lee Ramage. but the
others seemed to be hypnotized when
they came face to face with a shuffling
advance that lost no time moving into
range.
But what would happen with the
, Dempsey of the 1919 vintage weaving,
bobbing and piling in with both hands?
If Louis elected to stand and slug,
j swapping artillery at close range, one
; of the two would fall out of the parade
; in less than three rounds.
Dempsey's mam advantage would be
greater experience and harder compe
tition. His main disadvantage would
! be in tangling with a better boxer who
j isn’t any too easy for any one to hit.
i Louis is far from being an open
target. Yet even this must come in
the form of a guess, since no one has
made any earnest attempt to prove
the durability of his jaw or his stom
1 ach.
The main point for the time
being must rest at this spot—
that Louis is the top combina
tion of boxer and puncher, in
cluding ring coolness, that the
game has turned up.
Braddock Not Timid.
JIM BRADDOCK is dead game
and willing to fight. But he
will be up against a younger,
stronger, faster fighter, who can
I outbox and outpunch him from here
to Cape Horn. Any fighter who can
_come along as
far in a single
■ year as Louis
m has traveled must

w have to take. He
iioo piurvu t»vtj
thing except what
* ** might happen in
, . . the wake of an
°* 0 *' assault that hap
pened to land something more then
a tap.
Mr guess now is that Louis
ean take it when the time comes
and have a return message ready
that won’t carry any pleasant
news.
The next move is to find some one
who can prove this. Louis already has
proved that he is a fine boxer and a
destructive puncher. He never yet
has had to prove that he also was a
great competitor who could weather
a gale and still come through to port.
And there isn’t any one within the
range of a Lick telescope who is going
to prove it.
Even minus the necessary proof he
is the best equipped piece of all-around
fighting machinery I ever saw. I am
referring here to offense, defense and
the way they should be blended in a
combination of youth, speed end con
dition.

LOUIS WILL FIGHT
RETZLAff AT 1
Steadily Gaining, Colored
Boxer Opens Training
for Next Bout.
By th* Associated Press.
CHICAGO, January 4.—Joe
Louis settled down today to
the task of earning his first
million dollars.
The Detroit Bomber began training
for his 15-round bout with Charley
RetzlafI at the Chicago Stadium, Jan
uary 17, the first of his 1936 cam
paign, which he expects to culminate
in a heavyweight championship battle
with James J. Braddock in New York
next Fall.
In less than 19 months, since he
fought his first professional engage
ment in Chicago, Louis, just 21 and
yet to have his first shave, has rolled
up a bank roll of $371,000. He aims
to roll up the other S600.000 by the
time the present year fades into his
tory.
Picking Up Weight.
QRADUALLY taking on weight In
the absence of Summer sunshine
to take it off of him, the Brown
Bomber figures to scale 203 pounds
when he shuffles into the center of
the ring against RetzlafI.
He will be heavier for this battle
than for any engagement in his spec
tacular rise to ranking heavyweight
honors. He believes he will blossom
into a scrapping 220-pounder next
Summer.
He scaled 196 pounds when he
knocked out Primo Camera, jumped
to 19834 when he forced King Levin
sky to surrender. 1971 ^ for Max Baer,
and finally 200'2 against Paulino
Uzcudun.
JACK BLACKBURN, trainer of the
fistic marvel, says the added
weight will make Louis a more dan
gerous fighter than he was in 1935.
"He’s a finished puncher now."
Blackburn said, "and with 20 more
pounds on his frame, he will be un
beatable because I believe he will be
come a harder hitter. The short va
cation he has had since he beat
Paulino Uzcudun has done h m a lot
of good and made him eager to resume
training. His work for the next few
days will be light. All he will need
to do is to watch his diet and gradu
ally take off the excess weight he has
accumulated during the holidays.

Once Ring King, Now Bar ‘Boy’
Berlanger, Who Ruled Flyweights, Gets $15
Per Week Serving Beer.
By the Associated Pres*.
TORONTO, January 4.—Back
in 1927, when the harvest
was heavy, they hailed Al
bert (Frenchy) Berlanger
as king of the flyweights. Now they
send him ofT for a 10-cent beer.
The little fellow, who once made
*7,300 in an evening, works for *15
a week in an East End beer parlor,
and he's glad to get it. A few years
ago he belted the crown from the
brow of Ernie Jarvis, later losing it
to Bounding Frankie Oenaro.
He's thinking of "getting some
where,” forgetting the days of
heavy spending and trying to build
an Income on which to rest his fu
ture security. £
He’s still the poker-faced fellow
he used to be, but he's a little roly
poly—140 pounds is a lot of heft for
a flyweight.
His last fight was in 1930, but he
hasn’t any of the delusions of many
old gladiators—the feeling that they
can match hand and eye and en
durance with the younger fellows.
Frenchy feels he has a couple of
good ones left in his right, how
ever, and he's saving them for an
imposter who goes about the prov
ince getting into difficulties and
then identifying himself as Ber
longer.
"I'd just like to meet him—once,*
be said.
