BY MAX HILL The Axis finally is feeling the with our bare hands and pull them down," one infuriated soldier exclaimed to an American correspondent. Naturally he exaggerated, but it was his spirit which counted. How are we to know, then to what fury and what hatred the current bombings of Germany may arouse the Nazis? There is another phase which enters seriously into the question of mass bombing o£ the European continent. We lost 26 Fortresses Sunday, and the British lost 24 bombers Saturday. Until a more specific announcement of damage done is released it cannot be said accurately whether the raids were worth the cost of almost 500 skilled and patiently trained men and millions of dollars worth of flying equipment. A veteran airman once said to me: "I'm always skeptical of these raids whicH end with the announcement, 'all of our planes returned safely.' That means one of two things.

P. armband for the belt of heavyweight champion Joe Louis, had a new reason today to believe that he can do it a left hand punch that would fell an ox. The former light heavy weight champion from Beacon, N. Y., exhibited that punch last night, ending a year's absence from the ring by knocking out Lou Brooks of Wilminton, Del., so fast that most Double Squeeze iand and at sea. after months o£ [delays which seem inherent in a democracy. >And it must come as quite a shock to the Hitler-Mussolini-Tojo •combine that the United Nations snow have awakened to the credo •expressed so aptly by a Japanese •when he was criticised for the tac- 'tics of the Kising Sun Army in China.

Now, that is a callous attitude, but undoubtedly a correct one; The bombers Saturday and Sunday must have gone in low over their targets, perhaps as low as 2,000 or 3,000 feet, and at such an altitude they were extremely vulnerable to ck-ack fire. This heavy loss might indicate, Iso. that the Germans have ound a way to strengthen their efenses.

The blow temporarily blinded Brooks, who hung on the ropes crying, "I can't see." Referee Irving Kutcher led him to his corner and raised Beltina's hand in 1:49 of a scheduled 10-rounder. Many in the crowd, missing the lightning left to Brooks's left eye, booed the Negro, but Dr. Ralph Lanciano, State Athletic Commission physician, said later, "he did the only thing he could have done — quit." "My examination showed Brooks had recently suffered an injury to his right eye," Dr Lanciano said. "There was no wa_y this could have been discovered before he entered the ring. He had only partial vision in the right eye. When Bettina hit him he suffered a concussion of the left eye. He couldn't see."

David Harums of Baseball Look Over Calendar By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer Today is the deadline for mak ing trades in the major leagues without getting waivers. Tiic David Harums of the dia inond made a couple of restless moves yesterday that indicate they haven't overlooked the date on their calendar and may do sonic more important business to day. The Brokolyn Dodgers hiiv been trying to puddle Joe Mcd wick for several weeks without getting any satisfactory offers. The club that would be most likely to take him would be the New York Giants, floundering in seventh place and desperately in need ot reinforcements. Yesterday the Giants traded Outfielder Herbert (Babe) Darna to the Boston Red Sox for southpaw Pitcher Ken Chase. Neither of the players involved have accomplished anything notable in the last two years, but the transaction loft the implication that President Horace Stoncham hoped to come up with an outfielder from some other source. The Giants also recalled two pitchers, Hugh East and Ilubc Fischer from their Jersey City farm club in the International League. Another deal made yesterday was the purchase of Inficlder Dor Hcffncr from the St. Louis Browns by the Philadelphia Athletics. He will be used as a utility man. Only three games were on yes tcrday's program, but they cnabl the leaders in both leagues to it crease their marings. The New York Yankee whipped the Washington Scnatoi 4-1 to increase Now York's lea over Washington to three game The world champion St. Lou Cardinals checked the Cincinna Reds 5-3 with the Cooper brother Mort and Walker, playing print pal roles. Mort pitched eight - I ball to gain his eight victo against three defeats and Broth Walker, the catching member of the family, hit a triple with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. Tho Boston Braves, beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 4-3 i n a twilight tussle to take their five - game series 3 to 2. The defeat dropped the Dodgers two games back of the Cardinals.
