Time May Eliminate Schmeling From Heavyweight Fight Picture
Dempsey Believes He Could
Win in September—Louis
Much Improved.
iNEW YORK, July 15.—In spite’
of Mike Jacobs, it begins to
look as if Joe Louis will let Na
ture take its course to bring
0 about the elimination of Max Schmel
iag as a formidable contender for the
heavyweight title.
Mike had his heart set on promoting
a battle between Tom Farr, champion
of the British Empire, and Louis in
London next month, and following
*• this up with Louis and Schmeling in
New York in September.
, But due to what Mike refers to as
the ‘ double-crossing tactics” of cer
tain English promoters, Mike did a
little crossing himself and snagged
Tommy Farr for Louis here in the
Yankee Stadium on September 15.
Chin Still ‘‘Tinny.”
gINCE the fight in Chicago, hun
dreds of fight fans from all over
the country have written asking me
what I think of Joe Louis now. Some
of them have quoted what Gene Tun
ney said about being disappointed in
Louis, because even in victory, he
showed he was too "tinny” in the chin
4 and neck. That means that he hasn't
a sturdy chin when it comes to taking
a wallop.'
I still maintain that Joe Louis can’t
take a clout to the jaw or head as
well as he should to make him a great
champion, but I'll admit he is a
very much improved fighter. He
showed himself quicker on his feet
and he boxed much more skillfully
than I expected he could.
Those fellows who now find a
chance to criticize Louis because of
that first-round knockdown, are ‘ from !
Missouri.” They had to see Joe go!
down from a punch that wasn't Brad
dock's best by a long shot before
they would believe he hasn't a granite
Joe is Improving.
t 'T'HE Schmeling fight wasn’t enough
* to convince them, because they
were too surprised at the result of
that fight to analyze what they had
Louis has learned since the Schmel
ing defeat, a bit better what to do
when he gets hit. But even at that
the was a bit wobbly in that first round.
The main thing is that Louis is im
proving and there doesn’t seem to be
anybody around right now who'll be
able to hit him a decent blow. And
there never has been any doubt about
Louis himself being a good hitter—
perhaps the best with either hand
we have today or have had for a long
The active campaign which Louis
apparently will follow, fighting at
least four fights a year, ought to keep
him in fine fighting form, and he
^wight to improve with every' battle.
But what about Schmeling? With
Parr giving him the go-by and tak
, Ing on Louis, Max will be forced into
Idleness for at least another year.
Max Can’t Wait Long.
T THINK if Max and Louis were to
meet here in September, which
now is very unlikely, Max would re
peat his victory over Louis. But Max
1* getting older, and he’s rapidly near
ing the age limit where Nature will
take its course and he won’t be able
to cope with a strong young fellow
like Red Burman or Bob Pastor, for
, Instance, much less Louis.
As for Farr, I hear so many con
flicting reports, that it is only fair
to wait and see how he shapes up
before passing an opinion on his
chances with Louis. Right now I'd
•ay bis chances of beating Joe are
what the lawyer fellows call “nil,”
* and that seems to be the general opin
ion here.
Louis, without any question, is the
best heavyweight roaming the field
now, and it looks as if he will be the
boss of the class as long as he wants
to—provided, of course, he keeps in

Young “Y” Star Beats Vet
by Inches in Feature
at East Potomac.
ANEW swimming rivalry between
a rising young star and an old
star competing again for the
first time in three years seems
set to spice local water activities for
the rest of the season following a
highly successful meet last night,
which opened the competitive history
of the new East Potomac pool.
Max Rote, one of the District's out
standing swimmers three years ago.
and Albert Hamm, 17-year-old West
ern High and Y. M. C. A. merman,
are the prospective rivals.
Rote Again Eligible.
j^OTE, who coached the George
Washington University swimming
team after his graduation in 1934, be
came ineligible for competition when
he also secufed a position as life guard
M the Shoreham Hotel. Now, he has
resigned the latter post and is able
to compete.
Last night he won the 100-meter
tree style and would have been the
^nly male to capture two events had
it not been for Hamm. Just as it ap
peared Rote was a sure winner in the
200-meter free style, the young Y star
came from nowhere to nose him out
Dy inches. The result left Rote with
i slight edge, inasmuch as Hamm did
not place in another event.
Ann Bono Double Winner.

women's honors, winning the 50

-*■ Bad weather, the wrong phase
of the moon and a half dozen other
things were Jjlamed when they stopped
biting some two weeks ago, but all is
forgiven now. Boats docking yester
day and Monday evening poured cans
of 2 and 3 pounders on the wharf,
according to Admiral Eddie Bowen.
Speaking for the moment of titles,
as used In connection with Ashing, a
captain is one w;ho runs a boat as
guide or skipper; his assistant is a
mate. Fleet owners, such as Bowen,
Woodburn, Lore and Webster, at Solo
mons, are known to their friends as
admirals. And, come to think of it,
we have one sure-enough commodore
there now, none other than Commo
dore Joe Lore, recently givpn that
title by virtue of his election to that
post in the newly formed Solomons
Island Yacht Club.
Trout also are beginning to
show their pretty yellow fins
and purple mouths around Solo
Not so many perhaps as we would
like to see, but enough to show that
more are on the way. Biggest tossed
on the dock yesterday was a 4-pound
fellow caught in deep water. They
have to be bigger than that to win
any prizes, though, either in the
Chesapeake Bay Fishing Fair Associa
tion contest or in the Field and
Stream award of merit class.
Rock Now Around Shadyside.
pISHING off Shadyside is picking up
all the time, and should be better
in a few days, according to our good*
friend, Capt. Robert E. Lee, who reads
those waters like a book. He notes
that it was not so good over the week
end, but is better during the week,
which bears out one of our pet the
Catches of rock are being ad
ded to the usual hardhead hauls,
running 25 per boat and up.
He adds that you should bring plenty
of bloodworms when heading for that
section with rock on your mind. A
sentence in his rtote to this depart
ment reads; "There are quite a few
blues showing up." But the good skip
per fails to say where and in what
sizes and quantities.
Last week Bob had some trouble
with rock, schools breaking all around
his boat but refusing to tackle anv of
the accepted lures. Several visitors
returning from Shady Side told us
that this situation was adding quite a
few gray hairs to the good skipper’s
Hardhead at Rlark Walnut.
rJ''HE Black Walnut hole, just inside

according to Harold O'Conor, local
rod wielder who has a Summer home
down that way. In one day he caught
52 large hardhead, plus a smattering
of trout. He tried several other sec
tions of the bay, but this was the only
hole he found producing.
JJARRY CLARK of Baltimore never
had a chance at Ocean City, Md .
where he hooked a marlin. For 3
hours and 5 minutes he battled the
thing, which seems like a week when
you are out there tearing your muscles
and arms out trying to stop one. But
it was hooked in the fin, which means
nothing at all to a marlin, and it
