Pastor Given Little Chance Lewis Offered $100,000 to Take on Winner By HARRY GRAYSON NBA Serivec Sports Editor CLEVELAND — Responsible Cleveland promoters offer Pvt. Joseph Louis Barrow S100.000 to box the winner of the Bob Pastor-Lem Franklin match Jiere next summer. In. addition, Ben Goetz and Bob Brickman would guarantee the. Army and Navy Relief Funds that their percentage would total 550,000. On top of that, they say they will pay $5000 to the man, woman or chile :alking Booker Mike Jacobs into fetch- ng Pvt. Joe Louis to Cleveland. Robert Pastor exposes his classic features to the thunder of Lemuel ] Henry Franklin's powerful fists for 10 pounds or less at the Arena here, Fob. 24, and it's a colossal super- c'.ooper, as far as Cuyohoga County and adjacent precincts are concerned. Practically all of the local citizenry who have seen the ferocious Franklin put the slug on assorted aliens, who migrated here from the Jacobs' Beach warfront and elsewhere, concede Pastor nothing more than a pleasant trip down. The fact that Pastor survived 21 rounds with Louis and enjoyed marked success against such Negroes as Los Angeles' Turkey Thompson and Gary's Booker Beckwith may keep the odds within respectable figures, despite the partisan populace, however, for betting men know the form- player is a cute clouter who gets off the floor and gallops. But Franklin, who started in the amateur ranks here, is the boy who inspired the Cleveland bid. They say Louis and Franklin would draw $500,000 in Cleveland's huge Municipal Stadium. Franklin will do capacity—$56,000 at from ?1 to $7.70— with Pastor. Jack Hurley, manager of Franklin, asserts that the newest Black OUR BOARDING HOUSE with . *.

Our Daily Bread (Continued From Page One) Jinx in a Link being told that we must sacrifice. The government urges the employer to work longer hours as a patriotic contribution, then insists that he pay a 50 per cent penalty on overtime. How do American workers feel about it? This much is certain: No truly American worke rwould quibble about time-and-a-half if he knew his extra hours mighl help even up the batlel on Balaan. The work week is belwccn 55 and 60 hours in Great Britain. It is between 60 and 70 hours in Germany. This is war. Every American must work as many hours as compatible with maximum efficiency. He should be paid for every hour, at his regular pay rate. The 40-hour week overtime penalties—like excessive profits—arc holding back the war effort. For the duration, Ihey must go!

The idea that we are going to re- urn really to the horse and buggy lays, for example, is some of it. Na- urally, with a shortage of tires, rucks and cars, some trucking and delivery companies who can adopt Old Dobbin to their needs are going o do so. The use of horses for get- ing about and for hauling in farm and small communities also will increase. But if just that went to jnything like the limits of its possib- lities all over the country, the horse narket would be as empty as the 3arn with the open door. One government expert told me recently that it would take about ten years to breed the nation's horse copulation back to what it was in :he buckboard era. Even if a sufficient increase could be developed in time to do any good, there still would be the problem of reviving the manufacture of carriages and harness. Any demand for these in great quantities would necessitate virtually new industries, with a demand for new machine tools and new craftsmanship. There slill would be the problem ol priorities. Another bit of fallacious reasoning i'j that the nation is going to lake to bicycle wheels overnight. He again, it goes without saying that ii ome instances where distances are hort, a bicycle might help a lot. As an auxiliary vehicle for short uns, it could be made to go far owards saving the family jaloppy. But to consider the facts puts an- jthcr face on it. According to the Na- ional Safety Council, there now are bout 8,000,000 bicycles in the coun- ry. The production from the 12 manufacturers in the United Stales, has veraged somelhing over 1,000,000 a year for the last four years. (When he manufacturers met here recently with OPM officials to design the new Standard "victory bike," they estimated their 1941 output at 2,000,000). With the "victory" bicycle, of standard design, lighter frame, smaller tires, and a miximum of only 25 rounds of steel, this production might be stepped up considerably—if the industry were given priorities on all of its needs. One report here recently had it that priorities didn't want to allot more sleel to the bicycles than enough to produce 750,000. But to return to the 2,000,000 a year or even twice thai, il would take from five to ten years to put a bike beside every car in the land—or an average of one to every family. And of course, where one car will do for many families, one bicycle won't. America is a lund of distances. Its problems are not at all those of cycling England, where distances are relatively short The Uniled States has grown and its cities have been built on the piospcct of continuing fast transportation. The best that we can do is substitute horses, bicycles and shank's mares wherever possible and nurse the old gasoline buggies and their present tires along until the emergency is over. It is interesting to note that the National Safety Council is on its toes. Even before the prospecl of increased ycling was given Ihe stimulus of ;ovcrnmcnt recommendation, the Council was out wilh a national sur/cy of bicycle accidents, Ihcri cause ind cure. In the last year for which figures re complete, 1939, there were more ban 700 deaths and 34,000 injuries eportcd from bicycle accidents. Through the FBI's traffic division md its law enforcement bulle/tin which goes to thousands of police orces all over the country, the Coun- il is recommending police regislru- ion of all bicycles; license plates is- ued annually for a 25 cent fee; examination of riders and inspection of jicycles, before license plates are is- ued. Koreans Old Jap Haters Peninsula's Unbowed People Threat to Tokyo By NE/V Service WASHINGTON — The Japs have n 'yellow peril" threat all of their own. Figuratively crouching at the back door of the Mikadn, while his troops battle on distant fronts, are 25 million Koreans, the bitterest Jap haters of them all. They live in swarms on the big peninsula that juts out like a dagger from the Oriental mainland, cuts across between the Yellow and Japanese Seas and almost touches the isles of Nippon. They will tell you about the Jnps in Korea sending men, women and children to the safely of churches to pray during uprisings against the conquering Nipponese and how the invaders then set fire to the building? and watched the pious throngs turned into screaming pyres behind locked doors. The- treachery against Koreans blossomed out when the country fell U, the invader back in 1904. Time has healed no wounds and burning resentment has built up a gigantic potential Fifth Column in a land thai is only an hour's bomber flight to the Japanese industrial centers. Without fighting equipment of theii own, they have sent tens of thousand.' of men into China to carry on the fight against the Japs. Others worl' as spies. Still others have assassinated Japanese big hot with bomb. One youth, after Korea fell, almost succeeded in killing the- Japanese cm peror in his palace in Tokyo. Sabotage Funds Partly Raised In U. S. Funds for the unending campaigi of sabotage and violence against the Japs arc partly raised in this conn try, where Koreans have unsuccess fully for 22 years sought official re cognition of their hadow govern ment in exile and tried to awake Americans to the world-empire aim. of the Nipponese. Recognition of "Ko rca-in-Exilo" may come at last. In Washington, Dr. Syngman Rhei 76-year-old smooth-faced student i world affairs and a descendant froi a long line of Confucian scholar heads a mission pleading for offiei; status. Over ten years ago, he wi proclaimed President of a provision al Korean government. Dr. Rhee de scribed evidence he has seen of Ja] anese empire aims. "Early in 1895," he said, "I came across a Japanese book which spoke of 'Dai Dong Hap Bang—United Slates of the Great East.' It meant Jap hegemony. It meant exclusion of the white race from Asia. "Later read another Jap book: '1 id jaloppy, it's not n total loss.

In my campaign of warning lo my people, I started the first daily newspaper in Korea. The Japanese brought pressure upon my emperor and that weak man had me imprisoned seven years." Released during the Russo-Japanese war, he came lo Ihis country, winning his A. B. degree at George Washington University, his M. A. from Harvard and his Ph. D, at Princeton. Then he carried on his campaign against the Japanese, calling upon his countrymen in his native land and in China to blow up Jap ammunition dumps and plants, destroy railroads used by invaders, mine highways over which Jap army trucks roll, commit every act of sabotage possible and kill every Jap soldier they can. Koreans Want to Fight n U. S. Ranks In New York, meanwhile, Rev. Channing Liem, 31-year-old pastor of the Korean Church and a student at Princeton, is spurring hi scountry- men on, too, and serving as a sparkplug in a drive to win permission for alien Koreans in this country to fight in the U. S. Army. Immediately after the Japanese stab in the back at Pearl Harbor he called a meeting of prominent Koreans in Lhc New York area and sent President Roosevelt a telegram asking that provisions be made so that alien Koreans can fight in the Siime ranks with the Americans. Decision [spending. Koreans in this country have a special heartbreak. Although they arc larger and more robust in stature than Japanese, they are frequently mistaken for their sworn blood enemies. As a result, they have asked permission of the State Department ti> carry special identification cards with pictures and fingerprints.
