^.AgB-BlX 'i T^Ts 7" Has To Quit Calling Joe Bum And Gel Down To Business ' BY HARRY FEKOIISON United Press Sjwrls tailor NEW YOIIK, Jime 28. (UP) — This Is the clay when Tony Galenlo must put up or shut up. Sticks and '• stones will break Joe Louis' bones kul names will never Imrt him, ami time, fa Us slow, steady way, lias brought the fat lilfle bartender from Orange, Ji. J. up to tlie houi when he must, quit calling the brown bomber a bum and start trying t»piove<1t. ITe must try U tonight, come 10 ' o'clock, under the slnrs at Yankee Stadium where n bell will long out the news Uial he and Loui.s arc inside a square of ropes—alone. Alone except for n referee In gray whose only Interest In the pioceed- Ings is that the biawling find bleeding shall stop scnicwhcre this side ot. murder. The odd?: Six to one Ihnl Louis wins. ' Even insncy Dint Galento fails to come up for the fifth louml. Two and a half to one (hat Galento doesn't come up for the tenth.. There probably will be 40,000 persons In the stadium tonight, and they will pay $350,000 on the chance that they will see six or nine mln- , utes of Firpo-Dompsoy stuff—one of those dream fights where each man , can punch hard enough to clout the other guy over the ropes and / bolli can take it \\ell enough to get up and wade In for more. What chance hns Galento got In that kind of n fight? The some chance that the betting odds give him—one clmiicc in six, L.uls lilts like n trip hammer with cither hand; Qnlcnto's light Is Muggish and his left Is slow, but when lie lands will! that left hook he locks the::foiiiJdalions. Louis Is fast, sure mul rolls'in- tuitively .with punches; 'Galenlo waddles and seals up punishment without the ability cr the Inclination (o avoid it. Louis is young- Galento Is 23 and that Is almost middle age for boxeis, Louis is a polished cinftsmau hi" the ring wllh one ot the great left Jabs of all time; dalento scorns boxing and -will lake three on the chin for the chance lo Inml one. Louis Is unmarked"; Calenlo 1ms a crust 1 of scni llssiie moiiml his 1 forehead and n Innclng blow will send •blood gushing ln| 0 hli eyes Louts hns had VI professional fights rintl l;st only one, the knockout he suffered nt the hands of Max Schmeling; Gnlento Iras had 90 bouli and lost 22 of them. Louis is- In superb condition; Cialcnto's past is crammed with hours ct beer drinking, over-eating and cigar smoking and those liouis rise up to haunt a man nloiig about thS fifth round of n hnrd nghl Give Louis all Ihc physical nd- ivanlnges, but sny this fci the little barrel of n man Ihey call Two-Ton—he won't be scaicd. He will come out swinging and If he goes do*n he will go down swinging. That will be something mve\. fcr too many of the men who hnve fought Louis have felt the chill of fear creep up llioir spine as they sit on a slo.) before Hie fight and look nt his dead-pan fnce. Nobod/ is going lo have to shove tougii Tony off the st-col when the bell clangs the summons to battle. He nill be cnlllng Louis a liiim light up to the moment when the first left jab lands like lightning against his leeth and sends his own words rattling back cKn\n his throat. Bsth men go into Ihe ring with n warning from the New York boxing commission lhat excessive fonl- ine will result in cl'-.tuaUncntlon Rumors persisted u,.,i Gnlento would go cut lo make a longshoreman's Saturday night out of Hand would gouge, butt, backhand ;,and use his elbows In tin attempt -to open Louis up for a left hook lo .the belly.,Tony says 'taint so. He swears he will fight fair and if he does it will be a fair nghl, for Louis iiever fouled a man intentionally In his life. The time has come to stop talk- In? mid start fighting But tradition says tlmt boxers must make bef«rc-thc-bal(!e .statements. So here (hey arc: UiuWI think I will win by n knockout ami will be cut to scoie one os soon ns- possible." Galcmo-~"l know the first good punch I hit Louis will put him en the floor mid (Inisli him; I'm not nil-aid of the bum, I know he can't take It In the stomach." • BUY NOW PAY THIS FALL! TIRES, TUBES.
