(UP—As 11 I didn't already know it, helpful corresj>omlcnts h%ve written in to advise, me Drat l belter hr.yc n new Job lined up for- myself In. (he event Tony Cnlciuo knocks out Joe Louis In Yankee Stadium Wednesday nl^ht. > They point out, anJ quite properly, that, m, man with enough pilck to was'.; his neck on Saturday night could say the things I have atmit GnlMHo anil tlicii continue lo pose as ft sports expert nfter he had won. I liad not given this much thought until today, when, from the publicity offices ol Promoter Mike Jacobs, came a most Alarming little brochure. As I rentl Us utHlly mimeographed gcs I entertained, Vcr the first time, an idea that Cialcnto might 1 possibly win.' Tha brochure Hint en used my lin- easlnes.s was largely (icvaled to n pliysical comparison of Galcnlo and Louis. In black nnd white It wealed what an unbluscd survey- had found after going ov:r iotb of them with a tape measure, n transit, and n plumb bob. Aftei studying it 1 could not help but admit that Galenic hnd [he bet- It nncj, on paper, was the better man. , -Galenlo is 20 years of age to 25 for Louis, nnd a man can learn n lot In fpuv years, especially those fou'r years between 25 and 29. Tnkc my own case for Instance. At 25 I couldn't ride a bicycle without) touching the handle bars, was u total loss over Ihc fudge bowl, and had never beard of quintuplets.

Galenic has il all over Louis when it como.s (o Ihe neck, Onlen- lo's being 18-li arotuid and Joe's only 16-14; As I gel it. the neck liblds the head in place, and so [he bigger the neck the better a fellow holds his head. If yon think Ihe neck isn't important, Just try and get along without yours for n while. . • '• ; Galcnlo's ankles make Ihose of Louis look silly. Tony has a full 12 Inches of ankle on each foot, mid you can pore through all tho records of all the sports without finding an athlete who made good on weak ankles. The ankle is the staff of life (or so someone has said' and Tony will enter the ring with a beautiful set. Working up from the ankle we reach the calf, and Galento has a pair that would,got blue ribbons at any fair. Each one is nearly 19 inches around. Louis on the other hand (or Ihc other calf) measures a scant 15 Inches around the calf. Had r known this I 'certainly wouldn't have made him such a tremendous favorite. Half a calf, like half a loaf, is no good in the prize ring." When the thighs are reached Ga- lenlo is so superior that 1 wouldn't be surprised if Louis Insisted on wearing long pants Wednesday night to aviod having his own revealed as so Inadequate. Galcn- to's thighs arc measured In yards, and there is a report that Sculptor Gutzum Borglum covets them for a bas relief of American his- ory along the lines ol his work the Black Hills and on Stone fountain. When the chest is reached Canto has it over Louis like a lent ver a circus. Galcnlo's chest Is aslly superior to that of Ihe hamuion, be H expanded, defloled. vith vest, wllhout vest, or covered vitli tattooing. Galcnto weighs a ot more, too. He will bring into he ring (perhaps with the help if a basket) 230 pounds of Irahv ed-to-lhe-mlnute suet, while Louis vill have to depend on fewer linn 200 pounds of muscle. If it weren't too lato, and If il woundn't make me such a sissy would retract all 1 said, am come out flatly for Galcnto. B« I won't.

The Chattanooga Lookouts, fighting to be on top by July l nnd become host for the annual nil-star" Bnrne. whittled the Chicks' lead to linlf a game yesterday by spanking Ihc New Orleans Pelicans in a rtou- blchcadcr while Memphis could get no better than a split with tho Knoxvllle Smokies. In Chattanooga, Al Willlnms blnnkcrl the Pels on .six hlls in .the opener while his males put, together eight blows oil Sid Cohen for a 3 to 0 victory. In the nightcap, the Lookouts sealed the verdict with an eight-run blast in the filth Inning. Jnck Redmond of the Pels wns u hard loser.

The chicks generated a live-run rally in the sixth but by that time Hie Smokies were too far ahead. The Atlnnln Crackers, coming back after a tnilspin that had the fans on the Club's collective neck, walloped the Birmingham Barons In n double-header, 4 to 0 and 5 lo l, and advanced lo within a •single percentage point of Ihe third-place Smokies. . Smooth pitching performance by Onnic Robinson and the veteran Bouby Durham brought about the double Cracker win.

Boniira's' teiTifllo hitting in the west was one of the main factors In the Giants' rise to a contending (wsltion In the National League race. Big Zeke batted .512, hitting safely In every game, in" the opcn- i-r of Ihe western trip in Chicago lie hit two homers to give the Uianls a 2-1 victory, and yester- ilay in Cincinnati In Ihe last game of Hie trip singled to send over the winning hilly as Ihe Giants stopped the Reds for the third straight lime, 3-2. • , Long laughed at for his somewhat clownish fielding. Bonura has more, than made up for any deficiencies In the field by his timely clouting.. His -batting average of .370 gives, him 'second place to Morris Arnovich, the Phillies' lender. On the Western trip he made 21 hits in 41 limes at bat,-scored 12 runs and" baited in 14. The Giants won 8 out of lo in the West, and were headed home today only 4V. games out of first place. Bill Lohrman's pitching was one of the big surprises of the trip, winning n six-hitter against the Cubs and a' Iwo-lillter against the Herts. Mel Ott, who, with Bonura, was supplying most of the team's imnch had his hitting streak stopped at 13 straight yesterday by Hucky Wallers. Harry GumttcrL outpitched Walters, allowing only eight hits, and won his fifth straight game. A triple by • Bonura> and doubles by Ripplb and Climber: gave the Giant--; Uielr first two runs. Then Ott went to second in the next lining on Billy Myers' error and wild throw. He scored on Boniira's single. Ernie Lombard! drove In both of Ihe Reds' runs. The Bees smote the Cardinals twice, 8-5 and 2-0, leaving St. Louis only half a game ahead of New York. Johnny Cooncy and Eddie Miller made four fills each in the opener and Max West hit •t homer, double, and single. Bill ?o.sedel blanked the Cards on eight, hits In the nightcap. Clause Passeau pitched tho,Cubs .o a 4-3 victory over the Phillies, besting 'Kirby Higbe, with whom he traded uniforms a month ago. Jimmy Oleeson's double .with Ihe bases loaded drove in the tying and winning runs. A three-run rally after two were out in the ninth enabled hrooklyn to nose out the Pirates, G-5. Floyd Young's error on Almada's roller started (he Iroiible. Lnvagclto's double drove in the two tying runs nnd Caniilli's single sent in the winning- (ally. Camilli also hit homer No. 14.
