Galen lo's Manager Warns Against Helping Louis Back Into Ring • BY HARRY FERGUSON United Press Sports Editor NEW YORK. June 27. (UP)- YusECt-lho-Musclc Jacobs, minister of propaganda nnd public- enlightenment for Tony Galenic, announced .today that anybody who catches Joe r,cuts on (he-fly or the first, bounce when he Is knocked over the ropes tomorrow: night will risk the full penalty of the law. The propaganda minister said he wcutd appeal- before the New York boxing commission and ask for a special statute making 'It a misdemeanor for tiny newspaperman in the wording press section to assist Louis back into the ring. "The reporter should not pick Louis up, (hey should not shove him back Into the ring," said the propaganda minister. "They should just let him. roll." Yussel-lhe-Muscle was wearing a white tropical helmet, when he delivered that ukase, but several of Ills listeners suspected that the sun hud got through the helmet and tctchcd him In the hntd, For ,he odds continued to favor Louis ate to l and there seemed to be a general suspicion around town that f anybody vvns going to get belted over the ropes ft would be Signer Gtilento. Bui the propaganda min- ster Insisted -he was serious nnd pointed to historic precedents:. ; "Newspaper writers pushed Dempsey back Into the ring when he "ought Pirpo nnd lost the fight for ^irpo," the- Muscle announced. 'They also pushed Al Ettorc back! n the ring when Galento knocked iliu.. through the ropes two years o.' 1 •'.'.'' The propaganda minister, propagandizing Very fnst Indeed now that, .ho fight is only two sundowns iway, then enmo up with another dca. He said he would carry Into ho ring a set of scales, approved md sealed by the Department of Heights and Measures .of the CJty of Now ! York, to use In weighing he gloves worn by the gladiators, [lie Muscle Is haunted by vague fears, he said, Hint Louis will get a light, thin set of gloves and that Galento will receive n pair of 'cntherbeds. Wltli Hint, the propaganda min- ster retired to a quiet corner to •hlnk. More later. '•;. Meanwhile, there was silence—a very ominous silence—from the -Joe Lc'iiis camp,'and there wn. 1 ! considerable .speculation on whether the brown bomber had grown weary .of having Onlento call him a bum. If he has, Louis very likely will try lo break par on Gnlenlo, par being n knockout in the first round.. The present course record Is held by Max Schmcling, who; went down under'Louis' lists in tvvc. minutes, four seconds. Both men are throiigli with heavy work nnd it appeared that Louis will go in around 200 while Galento will weigh 230. • " Jnck Doyle, betting commissioner, said 4he wagering' was light and that most persons wanted skyrocket odds before putting money on Galento. A fnir amount of betting vvns being dene nt even ' money that Gnlenlo fails to come out- for the fifth round.' It Is unlikely that the crowd will go ,past 40,000, but the New York police announced they would take unusual, prccanllons. Two thousand extra men and a dclatl of ambulances will be on hand nt, Ihe Ynnkee Slndium. A 40,000 crowd would mean a gale of around $350,000. in the r!»£ during tho rest period and when Roberto returned for the third go then elongated ' athlete grabbed him and started •''raining rabbit punches at the back of his neck, then In 45 seconds hnd Kob- erts pinned flat with another hojk scissors.

Wall Colors Have Effect On Comfort The interior colors of n home may have considerable Influence oh this Summer comfort of the home owner, ns It is universally agreed that certain'' colors suggest heat arid others give an Impression of coolness. . Painting or papering the walls of n home may be financed with funds obtainable from qualified lending institutions under the Modernization Credit Plan of the Federal Housing Administration. One painting authority suggests that a bedroom furnished in good tnste would feature pastels. Recommended were bedroom wails nnd wood-, work in a soft pale pink with vcne- linn blinds painted to match. Swng draperies at the windows should be glazed chintz lo match walls and trim, with an over-pattern of sprigged bouquets combining lavender, blue, and green. ' • The furniture, it was suggested, should be painted blue with nn- Itque finish, while the dressing room should be done in lurtiuolse blue, relieved by white Venetian blinds with blue tapes. Transparency Can Be Reduced By Painting Sometimes the home owner finds It desirable to reduce the transparency of several windows, es-, pccinlly when the glare of Itgnt In certain' rooms Is too strong. The most economical procedure in doing this is to paint over die window glass. Pointing of window glasses , ns well as other interior nnd exterior painting jobs,. may be flnan:cd through the Modernization Credit Plan of the Federal Housing Administration. Painting authorities recommend that, where window painting .is contemplated, paint should be used which has good ;ul- hcsive quality nnd elasticity. A thin paint - coaling reduced with turpentine should be used, Complete Line of WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC Ranges and Water-Heaters WALPOLE'S ELECTRIC SHOP 110 S. Second Plume 311 say. . There is n trend entirely away from allnched lighting fixtures, and where this is followed an ample number of-wiring outlets'must be provided to cnre for movable lighting devices. Proper light distribution nnd the elimination ot glare should be sought In the selection and location of lighting fixtures. The Federal Housing Administration's Modernization Credit Plan p^vides a means by which permnnently installed fixtures may be financed. Fixtures must be structurally sound nnd attractive in appearance. Extreme styles of lighting fixtures decline rapidly in value. Thus, simplicity in design should be sought.
