Tuesday, December 14,1.937 Schmeling Scopes K.O, Over Thomas Chicago Fighter Is Carried From the Ring in the Eighth Round NE\V YORK.-W>-Mnx Schmoiing signalized his return to Die fi.slic wnrs Monday night by systematically rut ting flown Harry Thomas, crudo but willing Chicago heavyweight, in the eighth round of n 15 round match bo- fore n near-capacity crowd in Mndi- i'on Square Garden. Germany's former holder of the world championship, back in a New York ring for the first time since he flattened Joe Louis in the summer of IKiti, toyed with Thomas for six rounds put on the pressure finally ncnr llio end of the seventh and .slopped 1m rugged opponent with a .shun-bang finish. Thomas, bobbing up and down like a rubber ball from the impact of Schmoling's fcrrific right-hand blows was knocked to the raiivas seven tim< s before Referee Arthur Donovan halted the onesided affair, with only six seconds of the tighth round remaining. Never before flattened in the eourst. of an ambititous but not to conspicuous career. Thoinns was the vie tim of a technical knockout after car rying the fiKht to his famous opponent for six rounds and doing his best to make the ti to 1 favorite look bad. 'Schmeling. grinning from time to time as he ducked or blocked his n val's vigorous swings and fullback- like lunges, indulge himself in a di- foiwiivo workout until the final minute of the sixth round. For the time be ing he tagged Thomas and let it go U i «•. HOPE STAR, HOPE. ARKANSAS BIG HELP Then, nfler brer-zing the early part of the seventh. Selimeling again turned on the steam. Thomas began to buckle again at the knees but he did not go down for the first time until just as the bell .sounded to end<the .seventh. A dirort hit with Schinel- ing's right sent Harry down and left him so bewildered he had to be led t» his own corner. ! Schmeling dropped Thomas six times i in the eighth round. Strictly on the | receiving end as he waved his arms j .semaphore-fashion in defense, the former baseball catcher bounced up and down with ama/ing rapidity. Thomas was so dazed by Schmcl- ing's punches, despite his powers of absorption, that he took no advantage of long counts. He was up twice after only one swing of the timekeepers mallet and regained his feet in two seconds after three other trips to the canvas from the impacts of the Giv- man's deadly right hand. Donovan twice started to halt the fight but Thomas shook hi.s bean and brushed past the referee to rCF'irne his feeble fighting attempts. Only after the sixth and last knockdown of the round did the arbiter insist upon calling a hall. Thoinns. upon his feet again after another two-second count, was glassy-eyed but still willing. It wax not a severe test for Schniel- ing, who appeared to have the situation under control at nearly every stage, but demonstrated to the satisfaction of a cirtical ringside gallery that the Gemran'.-i layoff of 18 months has deprived him of none of hi.s punching powers. Champion Joe Louis, with whom Selimeling has a return date for next June with the title at stake, watched the fight from the ringside after being greeted bcfi;relu'.r.d with mingled boos and cheers as he wn.s introduced from the ring. Thomas won three of the first five rounds, the first, fourth and fifth. He landed the first punch, crowded Schcmling continually and had the crowd in an uproar when he forced Max to cover with a flurry of punches Just when n Ind like Rny Shiickclford, above, could do n lot of good, the rules committee abolished the center jump, but the West Texas State Teachers nevertheless expect their six- font nine-inch center to bo a big help throughout the basketball season.

Grid Team Worth? Shower of Dollars Follow a Winner—Town Gains Much Publicity By the AP Fentuf-e Service Uptown cash registers ring in echo to campus touchdowns. The dollars nnd cents value of football to a college town is in direct proportion to the frequency and importance of the team's scoring. Crowds follow a winner and desert n loser. And the bigger the crowd the bigger the profit. That's the answer to the question: What is a winning football team worth to a community? 'Pitt, Cnrnegio Tech and Dtiquesne's 1937 grim teams attracted enthusiasts who spent an estimated $3,000,000 in Pittsburgh. (Credit for 52,000.000 of this went to Pitt.) Yale's fine eleven was worth more than half n million dollars to New Haven merchants. Berkeley ledger sheets- showed a big increase in profits resulting from California's championship club. Philadelphia authorities place the value of the Army- Navy game nl $3,000.000. Those crowds sho' do look good to me. They may not buy shaves, but they want their shines." Frank T. Adams, a filling station mnn, outsmyrted hi.s- competitors this way:— Have your car greased while you see the game," his sign road. It costs only 25 cents more than if they paid to park, and they get a grease job to boot," he explained. Hotels had the S.R.O. sign out during the big games and profited immensely through smaller contests. Restaurants did rushing businesses. Gar- Be storage space -was at a premium. Movie houses were filled. Transpor- I ition companies required extra equipment. And the snow and rain, which nurt some businesses, aided sellers of umbrellas, slickers and overshoes. David Clmslend of the Pittsburgh convention bureau estimated the Pitt- Nebraska game, which drew 71.000, was alone worth $750,000 to steel city merchants. There is such a thing as too many grid visitors. "They couldn't get in our door the day of the Nebraska game. We did a 200 per cent increase in business, but we just couldn't handle the mob." explained Phil Kodinsky, Pittsburgh sandwich shop malinger. "It's always worse trying to take care of u mob, giving you the rush act." And Sam Sncco, a barber near Pitt's stadium, moaned:— "When the big teams come, the fans park so thick even my regular customers can't park anywhere near here. In fact, on big game days, business ain't so hot." But Allen Jones, Sacco's shine boy. just grinned: — New Haven merchants figured they would have made another $250,000 had not rain spoiled two games and had not the big Harvard game been played at Cambridge. "It's a 'natural' that fills the stadium. Ami those Harvards are the best spenders in the U. S.—they're the 'caviar and rhiimpiigno' crowd," one New Haven business man said. An estimated 100,000 out-of-IVnvnor.s saw Yale's games. Each, it was figured, spent $5. Rain costs the .schools themselves the most unexpected expense. So many fans use newspapers, rain coats and rubber capes ami leave so much debris that stadium-cleaning costs nro high. Strangely, a crowd of 30,000 does more damage than one of 70.000 lie- cause there is more room to roam about the stands. The football traffic causes no great strain on police in the big cities, but provides more of a problem in the smaller towns. Authorities reported little trouble from gamblers or undesirables who attach themselves to victorious teams. Drinking fell off considerably this season at most stadiums.

It is a dazzling picture thnt comes to Coach Thomas' mind on the eve of his second invasion of Pasndona as mentor of the Alabama Crimson Tide. The passing team he dreams of was made up of fleet-footed Millard (Dixie) Howoll and rangy, swift Don Hutson. There were other stars on the 'Bama eleven that smashed Stanford, 29-13, in the Rose Bowl there years ago. But Howoll and Hutson stole the show. Few backs ever have displayed the footwork and passing ability in a big game thiil Howell did then. He mid Hutson, G-fuot-1-inch end, just couldn't miss in their puss efforts. Stanford shot ahead in the scoring on Fullback Bobby Grayson's touchdown after a teammate had recovered an Alabama fumble in the first period. Then Thomas saw his charges put tin one of the most umuzing performances in Rose Bowl history. Howell touched off the powder keg by passing in (lie Stanford 5-yard line and driving over from that point. A little Inter Quaterback Riley Smith kicked a field goal from a trying angle. This score, although coining in handy at the time, was hardly needed for a victory. A minute or so afterwards the dazzling Howell scampered G7 yards for another touchdown. Then Hulson sprang into the scoring picture, taking a pass good for 54 READY FOR THE BOUNCE The nisi /once m the Victoria Steeplechase at Melbourne-. Australia, proved a little too touT? mour, the second time around the course, nnd so Inst did ' horse fall that he seems to be : . right into the ground. The Jockey. m-.^cnJously, escaped injury yards Riley, and sub a touchdown from for Howell. Howoll Joe got back into the gnme before it was over and let loose a toss to Hulson netting 40 yards and a final score. "These men," Thomas remarked, "put the Babe Ruth punch into a football game. That's what we are lacking this season—climax players. "But we have a good team. Our light, agile line gives us a good defense against passes and otherwise. Our backs, although not flashy, arc good ground gainers—the hard, driving type. 'Baina Defending Record "Anybody will have a tough time crossing our goal line. I do not look for any wild scoring on New Year's clay. "You arc going to sec a great contest. For us, it is not just another football game or just another team in a big game. It is Alabama defending its Hose Bowl record." Of Sandy Sanford, sophorYiorc substitute whose place kicks have saved the Tide from a tie with Tulane and won the Vandorbilt game outright, Thomas said:— t "We are going to'use him just like stadium.

By JERRY BRONF1ELD NBA Service Sports Writer CHICAGO.—Minnesota, for years a football power, would have you regard it as astounding more than than a one- sport outfit. Witness tho Golden Gophers' sudden rise to a place in the basketball world, a position so unique for them that tho good burghers of Minneapolis can't quite fathom it all. But surprise or no surprise, the citi- enry last winter flocked to the Minnesota field house in crowds of eight, nine, and 10,000 to watch the Vikings rpccd to their first Big Ten cage title in 18 seasons—although they were forced to share it with lilinois. And Minnesota basketball fortunes still are on the upgrade. Just one year ago Dave MacMillan was ready to insert a "job wanted" notice in Minneapolis newspapers, but after the 1D3G-37 campaign there was only one man who could direct the Norsemen's court efforts, and lie wa.s Dave MacMillan. Pick Up Where They Left Off With every man but one returning from the great team of a season ago. Minnesota is ticketed to burn up the courts all over the circuit. And although it's dangerous to name a preseason favorite in a Western Conference cage race, league coaches are practically unanimous in their opinion that Minnesota is the team to beat. Lanky, smooth-moving Johnny Kundla, who as a sophomore last winter scored more than 100 points in loop play, will hold flown one forward post, with Gordon Addlington, who just about paced him in hitting the meshes, also ready for another big year. 'Big Bob Manly will take care of tlie center position very capably, and Marty Rolck, All-Western guard, wiH be at one backcourt post. Only Dick Seebach, the other guard on last year's quintet, is missing, but he will be well replaced by Paul Maki who saw a lot of service as a reserve. Van Every Changes Uniform Add to that nucleus outstanding reserves like Butch Nash and Gordon Spear, plus a few additions from the Vikings' best freshman earn in a decade, and you've really got something. Outstanding among the newcomers is Harold Van Every, sophomore star of the gridiron. The idea shouldn't be obtained, however, that the Gophers will coast to another Big Ten title. Spirited competition will come from Purdue, who with Jewell Young, a whirling dervish of a forward still popping them in from all angles, must be .considered a definite threat. Indiana, a perennial contender, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio State also should be improved over last year. But if you must pick a pre-season champion, we give you Minnesota. Gopher gridsters acquired the .championship habit in 1934, and now it appears (hat the Viking hoopers have adopted the idea.
