Louis, Schmeling Secure as Ring Rulers
Max Baer’s Recall Is Tip-off
on Scarcity of Talent
Among Big Boxers.
Bv GRANTLAND RICE.
LOS ANGELES, March 8.—Recent
action in the heavyweight boxing divi
sion has left Joe Louis and Max
Schmeling bracketed at the top—and
no one else close to them.
Jim Braddock defeated Tommy Farr
and then retired. Returning travelers
from New York bear out earlier re
ports that, while Jimmy Adamic had
enough on hand to lick Harry Thomas,
he still 18 * couple years away from
the first rank. Louis disposed of
Nathan Mann.
Whoever wins when Farr and Max
Baer meet next week, it will not matter
much, since it is a cinch that neither
ever will beat Louis. It is extremely
doubtful that Baer ever again could
beat Schmeling and Farr doesn't fig
ure to, either.
This sums up the heavyweight situa
tion at the moment, with the excep
tion of Tony Galento, Roscoe Toles
and Buddy Baer.
Galento, while a rugged and cour
ageous soul, is not much of a fighter.
Toles has beaten Thomas, but that
makes him only one on a long list. He
would like to fight Adamick, and the
bout would be a natural in Detroit, but
Doc Kearns will have no part of it.
Not right now, anyway.
This indicates that Kearns thinks
Adamick isn’t ready for Toles yet, but
It doesn’t mean that Toles is anything
like a great fighter. My information
on him is that he is a pretty good
fighter—but not much more than that.
Buddy Baer has improved steadily,
but still is quite a way off. He can
punch, but he still has no defense. He
has managed to slug out numerous vic
tories, but a fighter must be able to
do more than slug to get by a Louis or
a Schmeling—or even a Galento.
Bringing Back Max Baer.
If there are any other young heavy
weights coming up out of the sticks or
off the sidewalks, they haven't come up
far enough to rate serious considera
tion. Indeed, the tip-off on the cur
rent activities of the heavyweights is
that Mike Jacobs felt warranted in
calling Max Baer back to work.
Max lost to Braddock, was knocked
cut by Louis and outpointed by Farr.
Against these, the only performance
approaching a major victory he has to
offer is his defeat of Ben Foord. He
stopped Foord, which is more than
Bchmeling could do.
But that was not exactly a startling
performance, and if there were any
youngsters punching their way up to
the big-time swiftly, there would have
been no summons for the elder Baer.
So Louis, who was knocked out by
Schmeling in 1936, but is the heavy
weight champion of the world, and
Schmeling, who was knocked out once
by Baer and subsequently went into
a decline that seemed to mark the
rapidly approaching end of his days as
a fighting man, will fight in June, and
the winner will not have to worry
about a dangerous opponent for some
time thereafter. Or that is the way
it looks now.
For one thing, the winning of the
title by Louis prompted no hysteria,
•ueh as the victory of Jack Johnson
over Jim Jeffries way back in 1910.
A feeling swept the Nation then that
somehow it was a disgrace to the
white race to have a Negro champion.
That was silly, of course, and it is a
tribute to the advanced intelligence
of the multitude that nobody feels
that way now.
"White Hope” Era Started.
One good result of the elevation of
Johnson, however, was the struggle
of powerfully built young men all
over the country to reach the top of
the pugilistic heap and wrest the title
from him.
First of the white hopes, as they
were called, was Carl Morris. Carl
wasn't much of a fighter and a great
many of the others were palpable
clowns. But at least there was an in
fusion of young blood into a division
that was dying of dry rot, and, after
a while, some good fighters came
along.
Best of these undoubtedly was Lu
ther McCarty, who was killed just be
fore he hit the peak. A couple years
later Jess Willard took the champion
ship from Johnson and, with the ad
vent of Jack Dempsey, the class had
a great champion again and entered
Into its most exciting and prosperous,
era.
And away back, far behind the mil
lion-dollar gate, but in a dire# line
back of it, were those earnest young
men who came tumbling out of engine
cabs, from under box cars and from
the machine shops and the streets
of the cities when the news was
flashed from Reno that Jeffries had
been counted out.
Louis, by his clean fighting in the
ring and his exemplary conduct out
side it, has raised neither enmity nor
the desire to see him, as a. person,
knocked from the top of the heap.
But fight managers, scouring the
country for young heavyweights, are
growing pessimistic over the outlook.
The lone optimist among them
appears to be Kearns, who has been
talking of Adamick as another Demp
sey and who said, right after the
Thomas fight, that the next opponent
he wanted for his man was Schmeling.
Kearns Pare Optimist.
But Kearns’ technique is to claim
everything in a loud and penetrating
voice, and nobody has to believe
him—although once they did—that
being, of course, when he had Demp
sey. In regard to Adamick, the
opinion is general that he is no better
than he should be for a fellow who
has had just so many fights and that
Kearns was talking through his hat
when he talked about Schmeling as
Jimmy's next opponent.
However, there is no need for even
those who take these things vpry
seriously to be alarmed about the sit
uation. There will be a great heavy
weight again, even if he hasn’t shown
on the horison yet. The history of
the ring is that, In most cases, the
great fighter comes quickly. One day
he is punching his way around the
small clubs and the next—or so It
sometimes seems—he is right up these
fighting for a title.

ARCHIBALD SEEN
AS FANS’ CHOICE
Popularity Increases With
Knockout of Mirabella
in Ninth Round.
The trim figure of Joey Archibald
today loomed large in the local sum
mer fistic pattern, with his popularity
increased by the courageous manner
in which he twice crawled from the
canvas last night at Turner’s Arena,
finally to land his pay-off wallop on
the chin of Johnny Mirabella in the
ninth round.
Floored from sizzling right-hands
in the first and second rounds, Joey
refused to take counts on either occa
sion, but for a time it appeared his
unblemished record in this baliwick
was headed for oblivion.
Joey thereafter was more careful,
tucking his chin discreetly behind his
shoulder and pecking away cautiously
until he found his opening in the
eighth round. Tossing a steady flow
of gloves to Mirabella's jaw, Joey had
Johnny reeling when he w-alked to his
comer.
With a merciless series of lefts and
rights, Archibald dropped the Italian
for a count of two early in the ninth
frame, but Johnny refused to remain
on the canvas, gamely staggering to
ward his vicious foe. Archy again
ripped crushing blows to Johnny’s
head, and this time Mirabella sagged
for a count of nine. When he arose,
helpless and groggy to walk into more
punches, Referee Denny Hughes halt
ed the butchery.
Abe Denner, former international
featherweight champion, captured' a
decision victory over Armanda Sicilia
of Chicago in an eight-round semi
final refereed by Jack Dempsey, for
mer world heavyweight champion.
The overflow crowd greeted the ver
dict enthusiastically, with Denner
making a decided hit in his first
appearance here.
Four-round preliminaries saw El
Brookman outpoint Ernie Tartagia,
Bill Teems win over Red Tucker and
Kid Howie score a technical kayo over
Ritchie Louis after 2 minutes 45 sec
onds of the third round.

Record Poor for 58 Years,
Wins Two Big Titles.
Coach Is Lauded.
By the Associated Press. ,
NEW YORK, March 8.—The flying
feet of Ben Johnson, the stout light
arm of Francis Ryan and the wise
headwork of Coach Carl Memer in
the last two years have built a new
power in track and Held—Columbia
University.
Aided and abetted by Herb Weast,
Dick Ganslen and Mike Pappas, the
Lions have won two I. C. 4-A. indoor
titles, the second Saturday night, and
missed the outdoor title a half point
behind Pittsburgh—all this after 58
years in which track championships,
indoors or out, were rare as Eskimos
on the Momingside Heights campus.
The Light Blues are singularly
modest about their achievements.
Memer gives the credit to his athletes;
most of the athletes divide the credit
between Johnson, 60-yard sprint win
ner for two years, and Memer.
Pays Tribute to Memer,
"You can talk all you want about
some of these other coaches,” said
Ryan, the I. C. 4-A. shotput champion,
just after he and Johnson had posed
for a picture Saturday night, “but
you got to hand it to Mr. Memer.
He never wastes a man and we all go
into these meets in top condition.
And this fellow”—he laid his hand
on Johnson’s shoulder—“is a great
guy to have on your team. Now he’s
going out and beat that Princeton
fellow in the broad jump."
He didn't beat Anson Perina, the
Princetonian. but he took second, and
Weast, who ran second to Johnson in
the 60 yards, took third to give the
Lions 27 points to Manhattan’s 24,
