Schmeling Coolly Confident as Louis Blusters About Quick Win
Max Hopes Champ Will Try
to Force Pace—Advance
Reaches $700,000.
Associated Pres* Sports Writer.
NEW YORK. June 20—The golden
Min continues to pour down on the
bo* office, Mike Jacob* becomes
hoarser by the hour as he croaks
"plenty of tickets left,” and the long
awaited return fight between Max
Schmeling and Joe Louis for the
heavyweight title is only three nights
Louis, the 24-year-old Negro cham
pion. still declares he will bat
Schmeling'* brains out in "not more
than two rounds" as he does a final
bit of loafing around his training
camp at Pompton Lakes before motor
ing in for the weigh-in Wednesday
Schmeling, the same maddeningly
confident German who interrupted
Joe's sensational career with a 12th
round knockout two summers ago,
winds up his preparation with four
liesurely rounds of boxing at his high
eamp in Speculator.
Things otherwise are reaching a
focus. Fifteen thousand "ringside”
teats are being knocked together at
the Yankee Stadium, and the fistic
experts, gathered here to represent
newspapers over mast of the civilized
world, are beginning to look drawn
and haggard as the time in which
they can "guess right” grows shorter.
Joe's Windup Wins Backers.
A lot, of them jumped to the Louis
banner yesterday m Joe wound up
his training in a savage onslaught
on hi* Negro sparmates. He looked
the old brown bomber, as full of
poison a* a cobra, and a banner dele
gation from Harlem whooped it up.
"I'm coming out fighting—or else
there wouldn't be no fight,” Joe told
his interviewers, ominously.
Schmeling didn’t sound particularly
impressed when told that Louis still
was threatening to skin him alive.
"Yah?” he queried politely. "Dot's
very good. If he doesn’t change his
Blind I will be champion quicker."
Max ha* been taking it very easy
for the last 10 days, ever since he

by displaying symtoms of reaching
peak condition too quickly.
Louis, on the other hand, appears
to have been brought to fighting pitch
exactly on schedule by his wise old
trainer. Jack Blackburn. He is in
beautiful trim and looks litt)e and
•11m despite hi* 200 pounds.
The odds on Louis to retain his
title still are running 8 to 5 and
better, and indications are that this
is going to be one of the big betting
event* in fight history.
Glove Argument Still Rages.
Louis' admirers are banking heavily
on the fart, that no heavyweight
champion ever haa regained the
throne, aa well aa on the accepted
premia* that Louis, ax the defending
titleholder, is more likely to get the
nod if the flght goea the distance and
Is close.
Schmeling'a loyal following quotes
another popular fistic adage: “Once
you whip a man. he's whipped,” in
ferring that the Negro hasn't forgot- i
ten the brutal punishment Schmellng
gave him before.
Representatives of the two fighters
will meet at the office of the Boxiag

about the glove* to be used. Louis

ability to detect poor pitching, for

seem to render him invaluable as a
lead-off man.
"Not only that," pointed out Harris,
"but he is developing into a real out

been getting that ball to first a split
second ahead of him. When those
fielders have to go get ’em, I think
Case will beat the throw.”
Speaking of fielding. A1 Simmons
still is able to unravel some flashy
specimens. His spectacular running
slab of Don Ross' looper in the second
inning yesterday choked off two runs,
while a shoestring catch of Billy Ro
geirs liner in the ninth averted further
trouble in that inning.
One of baseball'a rarities was com
mitted by Zeke Bonura in the second
inning. Boots Poffenberger and Rudy
York merely were going through the
motions of presenting Zeke an inten
tional walk, but Zeke stepped acroas
the plate on the fourth pitch and
slammed a single past Hank Oreen
berg to score Buddy Lewis and move
Buddy Myer from first to third.
Jimmy De Shong. who says he is
quite a heel-and-toe walker, offers to
prove it to skeptics. Jimmy wants a
handicap to first, base, with hia op
ponent running top speed from home
plate, around the bases. Thus far
therp have been no takers, but Case
looms as a prospect. B. H.

A Washington ‘‘natural" will be pre

The question is whether he ha* the

Jimmy Jones of Baltimore put him
away in five rounds. Abrams came
back later to win a decision over Jones.
Three weeks ago he had his best fight
to date, a 10-round go with forther
Middle Weight Champion Teddy Ya

By virtue of his Yarosz victory he
is due to move into the N. B. A. ratings

In 1930, two years after Tunney left

A crowd of 79,333 disappointedly ob

which culminated in the fourth round
when the German flopped from an
alleged low blow and was finally
awarded the decision, while wild dis

with official confusion in the ring.
Referee Jimmy Crowley did not see
the low blow. He conferred with the
Judges and it was not until after the
bell had rung for the fifth round
that he ruled in Schmeling’s favor.
Schmellng was later officially recog

be so weak he couldn't put up the real
interesting and slashing light of which
he is capable up in the next bracket.
So the Maryland State Athletic Com
mission, which like the New York
Cornish is a member of the N. B. A.,
went ahead last Friday night and staged
a 15-rounder for the "featherweight
championship of the world.” It was
advertised as such and carried out as
such. Rodak belted Jackie Wilson all
over the ring and won the decision. No
argument about that.
In the meanwhile Belloise is the
logical contender up in New York and
what goes on in New York goes on
everywhere else, including Washing
ton but, in this case, not Baltimore.
The Baltimore colons recall that Wil
son onoe beat Belloise, albeit it was
some time ago. and it still counts as
lar as they are concerned.
In the meanwhile Washington's
Matchmaker Goldie Ahearn has a con
tract for Rodak, “featherweight cham
pion of the world," to fight here. It
was made some time ago. long before
Leo ever thought of holding the title,
even in such a place as Baltimore.
Last year Rodak signed to fight Lou
Gevinson (remember him?), but a
week before the fight his eye was cut
in a scrap at Memphis, and the Wash
ington battle was called ofT, but the
contract for Rodak to battle here still
is good, Ooldle claims, and can be
exercised any time he feels so in
Nothing probably will oome of it
unless the “featherweight champion”
can remove the quotation marks from
his title by beating Armstrong or Bel
loise, neither of which matches has
been arranged.

Ocean City Man to Conduct Research to Learn
If Florida Type of Fish Exist There.

OCBAN CITY. Md„ June 20 —
A Aaherman'a hunch that gam*
flah for which the Florida coast
la famous la available off th« shorsa
of Maryland—If you to oft far
enough—la going to be established
or disproved by research.
The fishermen himself, Oapt.
Sdward O. Brea, has announced
plane for a series of expeditions
which will take him 100 to ISO
milaa at aaa in starch of blue
marlin, swordfish and flying flah,
which attract thousands of sports
man to Florida.
If his hunch proves correct
Ocean City fisherman think their
spout Ashing will be revolution
ised—calling for much largtr boats
aad equipment.
Oapt. Brex plans to make the
first trip to the Oulf Stream far
off shore in the near future *ln
his 23-ton fishing boat Pisces.
The Bl-foot craft Is equipped
with Diesel engines and has a
1,800-mlle cruising radius.
Boats now seldom go out more
than 10 miles, and the catch is
mainly bluefish and white marlin.

number of trout planted this season
close to 80,000.
Last Saturday Representative
J. Harden Peterson •f Florida
was presented with a Ashing rod
by the Washington Chapter of
the Ike Walton League.
This was in recognition of his serv
ice to the chapter this year and for
his work in helping the cause of eon
aervation. He was one of the men
inatrumental in bringing all thoae
good Ashing moviea to town about
six weeks ago.
Ken Powers, an angler who does
his Ashing up near the new Thou
sand Islands International Bridge,
has invented a bass rod reinforced
with a nickel ribbon winding around
the full length of the rod in a truss
effect. He says he got the idea from
watching construction of the bridge,
and adds that his new 4-ounre rod
has the strength and resiliency of a
8-ounce Job.

New Mid-Atlantic Champion
May Recoup His State’s
Golf Prestige.
The Maryland State men’* amateur
golf championship come* up this week,
and the Simon pure* who have been
waiting for the title tourney since Vol
ney Burnett won last year at Manor
have something big and tough to lick
this year. In fact, they have some
thing so big and so tough to whip
that it looks a* if lanky, lantern
jawed, black-haired Otto Greiner, the
erstwhile Baltimore newsboy, may be
the man Maryland has sought for
years to pull that State out of the
golf doldrums.
Otto will be the guy to whip in the
State's tourney which open* over the
Rodgers Forge course next Friday, for
if ever a man put on an impressive
show in winning a links champion
ship, the tall Greiner kid. who pounds
the ball a country mile from the tee,
did at Farmington last week to grab
the Mid-Atlantic crown. Billy Shea
! was the whole ahow in last year’s Mid
i die Atlantic, winning the medal and
; the championship.
Greiner Never Extended.
But Greiner did the same stunt
this year and in winning he licked
the defending champ In the opening
round. But that wasn't all. Otto
never was really pushed. The former
Woodbine Country Club caddie didn't
have a really tough match. He licked
Shea only 2 and 1, but he always had
I his nose in front against the Con
gressional boy and never after that
did Otto go past the 15th green. He
pack* such power in those tee shots
and so much crispness and accuracy
in hi* high-flying iron shots that it s
hard to see any one in thi* territory
who can lick him.
He isn’t know around Washington
at all. la fact hs hasn't played
more than a round or two here. He
i played in the mid-Atlantic last year
j and didn't turn in a card. But the
I boy is so much better than he ever
i has been it make* you wonder if w»
! haven't the making of a national
champion in him. Greiner and Biliv
Shea look to be the class of the
youngsters in this links territory, but
they won't meet this week at Rodgers
Won't Moot Shoo.
Billy will leove town Wednesday tor
Louisville, where the national Inter
collegiate tourney will come off next
week, Greiner, a freshman at Baiti
: more University, isn't eligible yet.
When and if he plays in the rah
rah tourney he will make the boys step
along. Maybe you've gathered that
I think Greiner is quite g golfer. H*
is, and you'll agree when you see him
i perform. The kid really has a lot. of
golf In him, and Baltimore may at last
have a return to the days when Clarke
and Warren Corkran were winning
everything In sight In this territory.
Greiner really murder* those tea
shots. But he can play the Iron* too,
and he putts very well. He hasn’t yet
learned to play the smart shots, but
that will come. A few lickings will
teach him that—if he is licked around
1 this part of the land.
