WKDNESDAY, l-'EMUAUY 7, 1940 BLYTIIEVILLE (AUK.) COURIEU NEWS HUH DUEL HIS Keeps Them In Trim Two Ways Featuring G a 1 e n t o As Gate-Pusher For Louis- Godoy Bout NEW YOHK. Fob. 7. (UI')—While heavyweight champion Joe Louis completed training today for his ninth litle defense Friday night, lilts one ngnlnst Arturo Godoy of Chile, these two statements were made: <l> Promoter Mike Jacobs ad- milled thai lhe bout would be a sell-out of more limn $100,000, and (2) Tony Galento volunteered Hint Chnmplon Louis would soon be a "wash-out." in addition, Promoter Jacobs prepared to announce tonight the opponent, city nnd date of Louis' iGth defense. I Although Louis still rules the 1-1 belting favorite lo heat Oodoy, the ticket demand is "so terrific," according to Jacobs,' that a sell-out Is assured. Unexpectedly large out- of-lown sales arc swelling the gate. This is a. tribute lo the cham- pioii's -drasving power, since Challenger Godoy has been virtually forgotten by United Stales fight fans. The Chilean hasn't appeared in this Country for more than two years. If the gate exceeds $100,000, i this will be nothing new for the j brown bomber, who drew over -that amount in his four previous Garden appearances. I The public may appreciate Louis as a great fighting man, but "Two- Ton" Tony Galento dees not. Tony watched the champion box four rounds vKh four sparmates at his Pompton Lakes, N. J., camp yesterday and came to tills conclusion; "Louis is slipping—losing his kick. I hope nothing happens to him before I can get another crack at him this summer. I mean I hope nobody beats him before I get a chance to knock him out." Fat Tony, who hnd the cliiimpion on the deck lust summer before Louis knocked him out, said Joltin? Joe seems to be in good physical condition—as far as his stamina Is concerned, but something has sapped the old-time dynamite from his punch. Also, says Galento, Loui;; appears off on his timing and sloppy in ills defense. Tony insists that Bomber Joe College Trainer Says Many Spend Freshmen Year Recuperating 11V JERKY HKONWIKU) NL'A Service Sports Writer .

Tony prays cnch night that Godoy won't kayo Bomber "becun I wanna do that." Joe, Today's Sport Parade By McLEMORB HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 7 <UP) — Southern California's biggest sport is not played on a golf course or a rcotbni! field or a race track, but on n sidewalk. No equipment is needed except a vacant stare, a mind to match, and the patience of. a,man who plays three-horse parlays at- a crooked Irack. Tho sport is known as stargazing, and it is played almost every night, outside of theaters where world premieres or previews arc being held. Unlike any other sport, you can think of, star-gazing is open to persons of all age,, sex and physical ability. A representative group of players will include tots and totters, moppets and mammas, and Tycoons and tramps. I interviewed Sidney Ney, one of I lhe recognized, top-ranking slar- gazers in Holly\vo:d, as to how the game was played by an expert. With quiet pride, Key told me he has not missed any opening since the Gish girls gave their all in "Broken Blossoms." "At that time," he said, "I was a novice. I simply stood on the fringe of the crowd. Today my technique has so improved that I nm cftcn in the photographs taken of the stars as they walk into the Iheatcr lobby." As we talked, I looked about his trophy room. On lhe left was a collar he had torn from Ronald Column. Just beneath it was a side- comb snatched from Norma Tal- madgc's hair. In a glass case was a wisp cf moustache which Key Now In New Location J.

This expert explained to me the Ncy syslem of star-gazing. "Thousands have adopled my technique" lie continued, "because of the ever saw the campus." H'lLI.

Mr. Ncy further explained ihnt the ability to reach a front line position did not necessarily classify one ns a really lop-flight slar- gazer. He must have tnste, and the knowledge of what to cheer. "I never -made the mistake of asking a bit player for an autograph in .my entire: career," he said, "Bui only in my recent and most successful years have I cured my weakness for snatching mem- entccs from n person whose op- lion htid not been taken up. I now concentrate solely on those stars who have long-term contracts." Last night I had the opportunity of watching- Mr. Ney in action when I attended the opening of the Mae West-W. C. Fields picture. Almost in the theater, lie had an over-lapping grip on Fields' cane and with his foot was loosening a buckle on Miss West's shoe when I passed by. liis every movement bore the stamp of a champion. Sinclair, Pepsicola Win Bowling Matches At lhe zero hour of nine o'clock last night a picked squad of national guardsmen made an attack upon the stronghold of the Sinclair oilers. The Oilers were expecting it, however, and sallied forth lo engage them in combat. A furious battle ensued, and when the smoke cleared away from over the Plamor alleys lhe guardsmen had bean repulsed with a total loss of 349 plus. Sharpslioolcr Bcrl Looncy of the Oilers bagged individual high honors with an average of 212, while Guardsman Henderson Hall's 205 average topped the rest of his squad. In the oilier game of lhe night Pepsicola dunked Dr. Pepper wllh expected, Morris says football presents the principal problem to the trainer, both In preparation and treatment' of Injuries. • ,, .. There are more men and-'they are larger. • .-. The gunic requires more taj5e and wrapping and often special treatment for old injuries. .':& Except fcr minor bruises aiiii strains, ankle injuries are the most common on lli e gridiron. Bruised shoulders and shoulder muscles come next, followed ,, by major da mage'"to skiii and iiiuseles'from cuts. Knee injuries arc high on the list. In Morris' opinion, principles cf training are about the same for lhe various sports. The trainer diflci-cnliales between types of injury, rather than sport, and by parts of the body which need the most protection FEU' INJUKiiiH IN •' \ ' COLLEGE BASEBALL Basketball players most frequently suffer ankle injuries and severe charleyhorses. Ninely-flve per cent of Irack ailments ccmc from pulled muscles, metatarsal arch trouble, and blisters. College baseball brings few injuries, or even sore arms, because the "heat' isn't on, and the season is too short to produce overstrain. Knee injuries give trainers the severest trouble, Morris points out. They're the most difficult to cure. and most frequently cause recurrent trouble. The Uutler trainer invented a protective knee wrap which lias had excellent results. Apparently there is no curt lo Jnnie.s H. Morn's' talents.
