It was n dreary end lo a dreary,' lop-sided fight for Die heavyweight I championship of tlie world, and today there's not one word of cou- i-olallon that can be whispered into the ringing ears of Johnny Paychck of DCS Moines, la.

Louis missed only one • punch—a whistling right in the first round—and thai one was so close lliat Ihc wind gave Paychek tlie sniffles. All other blows were right on the target mid what- a target thai Paychck turned out to be with his head buck, slnml uj straight style!

There was no waste motion, no throwing of hooks into ihc belly in n'i attempt to soften up Paychek, no sparring for an opening. Louis shuffled out, whnmmcd a left hook to the head, crashed across a righl and anoliicr lefl and Pay- click's knees went rubbery us he willed to the canvas. Later Johnny said everything was a blank after that, first knockdown, but al least lie had sense enough to take a count of nine. Louis caught him in mid-ring almost as soon as lie was up and a left hook thai travelled about a fool nnd went rattling against the i 'teeth • sent Paychcfc down again. Once more he waited until Referee .Arthur Donovan readied the count of nine and this lime lie came up slowly and began lo do n curious, jltler-bug dance around Louis with his own knocking knees providing the swing music. Paychek hnd time to do only about three steps and a hl-de-ho before Louis' right, smashed into his Jaw. This time Paychek fell in his own corner, but got up at the nine count, blearing and ua- enthusiastic. Louis was measuring him when Ihc bell rang ending the round. In <H more seconds it was all over. Louis went out and flicked his left into Pnychek's face. Then the Brown Bomber brought his right clear up past his shoulder and let fly. The glove travelled so fast it. was only a red blur under the glaring lights. Whoosh! The right exploded on the lip o[ Paychek's jaw nnd this lime it was "Oh, Johnny. Oh, Johnny, Oh|" Paychck sailed aboul three feet through the air, landed flat on his Back and bounced. Referee Donovan didn't even bother to start a count, for he would have had to have gone far up into tlie nuiltlplicalion tables. He waved Louis to Iiis corner, hailed the fight and helped pick up Pay- chek. Tlie 11,620 customers let loose their bobs against Paychck and today ttiere appears to be plenty By iiAituv CJKAVSON !

BRUCE CATION IN WASHINGTON By BRUCE CATTON Courier News Washington Cortcsiioudent WASHINGTON. March 30— The dust hasn't settled yet, but when it does Ihere is every chance that Congress will be found lo have ditched economy for good. The Senate's action in hiking (he farm bill did more than just wreck thai one chance for a big saving, it was a way-paver fur more wreckage later. "I'AUITY" NEVER AUANI>ONEI> What happened to Hie farm bill was perfectly simple. In 1038 Congress voted that the farmer ought to get close to Hie 1009-14 average price on five rasic crops-colton, wheat, corn, tobacco and rice. It would cost too much to jjivi "Guess \vhal, Doclor—I've discovered a brand-new syrup- 10)111" --, „-.- him full parity, so in! tlle BOH! sliot at is 75 per cent ---..„ 1.97.! ° r the 18D9-H average.

As things are, McKechnle is also concerned about second base where Eddie Joost may start in place of Linus Prey, who fell apart at the scams In the world series <ind is now below weight. McKeclinie docs not believe ;iH the ribbing he has taken for his celebrated snooze al Ibe plale in tlie closing scene of the world series will have any effccl on lumbering, phlegmatic and unima"- tiniate of $881,230.000 to $922,£04,000, including $212,000,000 for parity; in addition, it authorized RFC to lend $90.000.000 for rural electrification and farm tenancy KCONOJIV AMIDST FKSENDLESS Real economizers are lew. when the farmer is concerned and it's election year. In the Senate, only Byrd of Virginia made a real fight against this increase. In (he House, you can bank on Woodnim of Virginia and Tnber of New York, but the chances are the House will override them. It is what is apt lo follow the farm bill that is important. A move lo boost the WPA appropriation is gaining headway. The budget calls for approximately SI.000,000.000 for this purpose; it is figured this would keep an aver- aye of 1.325,000 people on Ihe rolls. Already Congressman Cochran of Missouri lias demanded Ihat the appropriation he made big enough to care for a million additional persons. VETERANS WANT MOUK Pending in the House, and due to get .strong support, is a bill lo pay pensions to 05-year-old World War veterans, or their widows. Initial cost Is estimated at $90,000.000 a year. Aid for war veterans Ls just about as touchy an election-year subject for economizers as aid to farmers. There are other items, too. Congressman Collins of Mississippi is fighting to raise the National Youth Administration appropriation from $85,000,000 to $100.000,000. A drive for a $115,000,000 rivers and harbors bill is next.
