The champion re\ re\ cently appeared in several exhibi- ', tion boxing matches in England. ' (Louis could not. be reached ' immediately in Paris for comment. · A clerk at his hotel said he was \ visiting night clubs and was not '! expected back until late.) ; The suit charged that Louis, dur- 1 ing last November, December and · January "wilfully destroyed and ' alienated from the plaintiff the af- ".' fections of his wife, Mattie Carrie 1 Faulkner." Attorney Sol Friedman, who filed · the suit, said Mrs. Faulkner. 26, is ) a "beautiful model." "The illicit a.'fair was carried on 1 while the Reverend Faulkner was * in the army serving as a captain corps," the suit in the Chaplain read.

She said Bhe was employed in ! New York liity as a model under ' her professional name of Carol ! Drake. She 'gave her ag-e as 23. . Louis is 33. ·No Action Taken j At Meeting Here A Junior baseball meeting held In i 'the T. M. C. A. last night resulted 1 In no action on a proposed -league ', this aummer. The formation of . guch a circuit will be settled at another another session to be held next Friday Friday night. Several teams were reprenented at last evening's meeting, an American American Legion motion picture shown and rules and regulations explained By JACK HAND Vero Beach. Fla., April 2.--UP)-Brooklyn 2.--UP)-Brooklyn has a young, hustling ball clufc, without real home run power, that should help Manager Leo Durocher wiggle off the baseball hot seat. They're at least as good as they were a year ago. Leo, back from a year in Commissioner Commissioner A. B. Chandler's do'g house, must know he has to win. After Bunt Shotton's success in 1947, Dodger fang expect nothing less tban a pennant. Second place will not do. especially after the sale of Dixie Walker and Eddie Stanky. This Dodger team, bronzed by a month in the Dominican Republic, is far from set as it pauses here en route home via Texas. But it flashes enough speed to run belter skelter'past most of the National league, given a break in pitching from youngster, s with a real chance, they can do it again. You can expect expect the typical Durocber box score with 20 or 21 Dodgers in every game. Not uotil April 10' when the "B" squad rejoins the varsity will the Brooklyn ball cluib play as a unit. Injuries to key men have kept them apart. But that's nothjpg to become become alarmed about. The Dodgers usually advance a couple of regulars regulars from Montreal on the eve of opening day. First Base Is Question Right now the big question- is first base. Ray Sanders, acquired from the Boston Braves on a conditional conditional basis in ttie Eddie Stanky deal, has not played yet. He is optimistic and so is Doirocher, but he remains a question mark. If Sanders dhows complete recovery recovery from a. series of operations on his arm, he will play the bag. The Dodgers have until opening day to make up their minds on him. Jackie Robinson stays on first until Sanders is ready and Pete Reiser has been learning the trade under George Sisler in case of an emergency. If Sanders makes it, Robinson probably will go to second second base, displacing Eddie Miksis.. Rickey and_ Durocher are high on Robinson, as a second baseman. "We won the pennant with the Ibest second baseman in baseball playing at first base," said Rickey. Pee Wee Reese, of course, is tihe shortstop with Billy Cox at third. Cox, acquired from Pittsburgh. In the deal that sent Dixie Walker, Vic Lombard! and Hal Gregg to the Pirates, seems to have won the battle with Tommy Brown and Spider Jbrgensen. He has had no trouble adjusting himself to third after five years of pro baseball as ·a shortstop. Vaughan Making Comeback Arky Voughan, making a fine comeback, probably will open in left field, adding more power to th attack. Carl Furillo in center and Dick Whitman, a .327 hitter at Montreal, in right appear to be the outfield. However, Reiser will be in the lineup. Whether as an outfielder or first baseman remains to be seen. Duke Snider, touted as a home rrun hitter, has disappointed but must be considered.

The muggy muggy heat hung over the vast expanse expanse of practice field In almost visible layers as the scores of youngsters went through the myriad myriad chores of a baseball foundry. It' was easy.for the kids though. It was the instructors in the Brooklyn Brooklyn Dodger instructional camp who suffered. It really is work for the old'gaffers. Branch Rickey would have been out their himself, stretched out in a sliding pit to demonstrate technique technique or teaching verdant young pitchers how to hold the ball were it not for a leg injury. Fresco Thompson, assistant director director of Brooklyn minor league operations and a handsome, affable affable cuss, was explaining some of the details of this big project, which has seen 600 pupils pass through the camp in a month's time. ''The troubH with this game," he said, "is that when you learn to 2nd Straight State Crown play it you're too old to play." Six Qualified Instructors Rickey, who likes to visualize the school as a baseball college, inferred the same thing when he remarked: "Right now we'have only five or six qualified teachers. The other 20 or so instructors still are learning learning themselves. Our trouble right now is lack of pedagogues." Rickey had . outlined his plan briefly. When with the Cardinals, tie said, he took a survey and found the average player stayed in the minors 3 to 4 years. The Yankees, Yankees, he added, thought this figure for the state championship tomorrow night at the University of. (Pennsylvania 1 ^ Palestra. Game time Is 8 p. m.

Norristown, with a season's record record of 23 wins in 26 starts, enters the game as slight favorite due main-ly to its extra height. Four of the starting five" are six feet .or better. Ford City has only one six- footer in its starting- lineup, Ed Halas, high-scoring center. However, the Ford City Iboys concede concede nothing on their season's record. record. They -won, 23 to 27 games. This is the first time any team other than Lower Merion carried the District 1 banner" into the state finals. Norristown beat the former state champions twice during the regular season, 60-38 and 61-46. The Lower Merion speedboys entered the finals six times and on four championships, three of their titles coming in-succession between 1941 and 1913, inclusive. Titles Declared "Vacant" Only one other team has won the title on three successive years, the Canaries of Allentown High. And two of these titles, in 1946 and 1947, were declared "vacant" after it was found that Allentown had used ineligible players.

Without this 6' 3" ace, the district 1 and eastern regional champs would bave absorbed an even drubbing at the hands of the district district 7 and western titleholders. After the first quarter, the Irwin Irwin Kr.ights coached by Don left little doubt about the outcome. Coach Andy Ottaviauo's Dragons were ahead only at the outset :he game at 2-0 and 2-1.
