Louis' Compliment Stirs Baer To Proclaim His Gameness By the Associated Press. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., May 22.— Max Baer says he knew, and his friends knew, that he never had been a quitter—and it’s nice to have the general public know it, too. Speaking from his bed in the sta tion hospital of the San Antonio Air Service Command, the former world heavyweight boxing cham pion commented on the statement by Joe Louis that Max was the toughest man he ever fought. Old Injuries Trouble Him. "If I had wanted to quit," he said, “I’m a good enough ham actor to take a punch going away and stay down for the count. Sure, I could have quit and been a hero for it, a ‘game loser,’ but nobody ever saw Max Baer flat on his back in the ring and they never will.” Sergt. Maxie, who has been tour ing the country in behalf of the physical fitness program of the Air Service Command, is in the Kelly Field Hospital for a routine physi cal checkup. Because of his long years in the ring, Max has a num ber of injuries that have been caus ing him trouble lately. Baer said he was making his ob servations in view of the theory in some quarters that he was more in terested in saving his own hide than InVinning bouts. Homesteads Win Two To Regain Flag Lead Washington Homestead Grays are back on top in the Negro Na tional League, after licking the Newark Eagles twice before 6,000 fans at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn yesterday. The Grays took the first game, 5 to 1, and swamped the Eagles in the finale, 12 to 2. He said Louis should know what he’s talking about, since Joe had to hit him 13 times, when he was help less, before he went down to a sit ting position. Admits He’s No “Killer.** Baer declared that although he knew he didn’t stand a chance of winning against Louis, he wasn’t frightened. “It was a little like a soldier with blank cartridges facing an opponent with live ammuntion,” he said. He admitted he lacked the killer instinct and added: ‘It’s easy for the fan at the ringside or in the gallery—who doesn’t feel a single punch—to be bloodthirsty and yell for the kill, but boxing is supposed to be a sport, not legalized murder.” Hi Ho Scores in Women's Show1 To Take Jumper Lead Here By LARRY LAWRENCE. Mrs. Fred J. “Skippy” Hughes’ Hi Ho, ridden by the owner, won the jumper championship at the American Women’s Voluntary Serv ices bend and stamp horse show at the Meadowbrook grounds yes terday to go into the lead for the sesaon’s highest open jumping hon ors over Maj. Alvin I. Kay’s famous timber topper Smacko, ridden by Gardner Hallman. Two thousand horse show fans saw the spectacular Hi Ho win one of the most exciting knock down and out classes held in these parts in many a month. Six jumpoffs were required before Skippy Hughes’ bit of dyanmite cleared the’ third 5Mi-foot jump to win over Maj. Kay’s giant Applejack, which seems to have regained his old form under the expert piloting of Gardner Hall man. The veteran Smacko, also ridden by Hallman, took third place. Hi Ho Scores 13 Points. Hi Ho also won the modified Olympic and picked up three points in minor awards for a total of 13 points. Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Hall man’s talented No Foolin,’ which can jump anything from a bonfire to a grand piano, took the reserve jumper tricolor with seven points. U. S. Randle’s smooth-moving Claus, ridden by the owner and Tommy Cook, annexed the hunter championship with a total of 8 points. Reserve went to Frances Crouise’s Hollejo, which amassed 6% points, with the owner in the saddle. Claus took blue ribbons in the open hunter and hack and hunter and placed fourth in the model. My Lass, piloted to an even-paced clean round of the outside by owner, Mrs. Forrest Sherman, eclipsed a field of handsome-is-as-handsome does fox chasers to take the work ing hunter class. Frances Crouse’s Hollejo was judged the best mount to carry a woman rider over hunt .country and deserved the blue rib bon in the ladies’ hunter event. In the park hack class, limited to horses owned locally and ridden regularly in Rock Creek Park, Prim Burrows’ Blond Reel, ridden by June Martyn, merited the blue in a large field of able hackers. Three year-old Kenneth Van Sant, jr., got a big hand from the spectators when he won the lead-line class over two-year-old J. Carroll Tsch inger. The youngest entry was eight-month-old Joseph Wall Me Sherry, son of Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Frank MoSherry, who took the third ribbon. Lee Hart in SpilL Pfc. Bobby Lee, home on leave from Fort Reno, suffered a strained shoulder when his mare, Bonne Fille, turned a somersault with him in the hack and hunter. The show, run exclusively by women, was a great success from the start when Mrs. James Doo little, wife of Lt. Gen. Jimmie Doo little announced the first class until the tricolors were pinned on the champions. Judging the hunters were Mrs. Polly Lyman, one of the Nation’s greatest horsewomen, and Mrs. Dean Bedford, and for the jumpers, Mrs. Margaret Hurd and Anna Hedrick.

After a year in which both cooking and indus trial fats were in short supply, the outlook for food fats has improved. This is because farmers have greatly increased their production of oil crops and livestock. But abundant supplies of industrial fats con tinue to be needed to meet the increased demands of war production geared for invasion-—as well as for civilian requirements. With more used fats available for industrial use, we will have to divert less of our fresh food fats to war production. ^ We do not want to take good food fats and use them for non-food industrial purposes if it can be avoided. The conservation of used fats by every homemaker can help in this situation. a—a———. Therefore, we urge American women to save j all their used cooking fats and turn them in to their butchers. These fats are vital in the making of such materials as synthetic rubber, parachutes, j de-icing fluids for planes, explosives, life-saving I medicines, industrial, military and civilian soaps j and hundreds of other war necessities. Increased production has helped give you j point-free fats for your kitchen. By saving more I used fats you help keep our food fats point-free j —and our war machine rolling on to Victory. * J DIRECTOR OF DISTRIBUTION ? WAR FOOD ADMINISTRATION j For every pound of used fat, your butcher will I give 4^ and two red points. And remember, these points are doubly valuable now. So let’s save all the used fats we possibly can— and then some more! It’s a real contribution to victory that every home can make!
