I fee) certain of Hit? because doctors, more than any olhei class of people, are always getting first hand accounts of Joe's weaknesses and Just what is needed to bent him. No sooner is one of Joe's victims readied for the 'operating table than he starts telling the consulU Ing stirgcons, who arc there 10 mend him, jiisl what Louis lacks ns n .champion nnd how to capitalize It,.. Max Schtnelliig spoke above-, the rattling of his loose verlcbrae to brand Louis as a man who.couldn't hit. Max Baer Interrupted the lieni- slltchlng on his face lo'point out the champion's flaws and how he could be token. Al the risk of ImvliiB air his Uelh ' fall on 'the floor, Jim Braddock rose from his bed of pain to tell the men of meicy vUio stood solemniy about that Louis .was just a flash In the pan and wasn't here to slay. So did all Die other Louis challengers, the latest being Tony Galento. At tlie risk of being torn apart by the "prolecttvc" New York policemen who guarded his dressing, room, I followed Galento Inlo Ufa. Yankee' Stadium retreat after he had bccii knocked out in fain lounds, by Louis. Still out of his mind, and with bis face furrowed like a corn field with, nasty cuts, Galento mumbled through horribly swollen' lips that Louts was a bum and couldn't hit a lick As physicians put enough clamps on his wounds lo hang out the Monday wash of a family of five, Galento told them, that Louis never .really .hit. him, but that, he just "shoved me around." Later, wearing a smart ice cap at a lak- ish angle and outfitted In Ihe latest pastel shades of gauze anil tape, Tony demanded a return match. "The next time i'll knock the bum put. I just got. careless, else I would have beat hell out of'him this time," .hcYsald: I hate to uiterVd/"discordant note nl this time of Galento's greatest "triumph"—when the papers aie dilpplng with columns of praise i for him as a nghler and a man Bui isn't it time lhat Louis got a' liltle piaise as a fighter? Isn't it time lhat we stop making heroes i 5f men who last three, four or five; rounds with him, and give the col-; ored boy his due as a tiemendous hitter,. and .fellow with -n fair amount of courage? , Itjls getting so that the men Louis beat to a pulp receive much more ciedit for not being killed put fight, than Lpuls:d6es 'for;-rendering them helpless. If a 'man goes Into the ring against Louis and shows enough courage to walk forth to meet him he Is hailed as a, nichard the Lion-Heorted A «nd stout fellow, 'It ««ms lo have been forgotten thafLouls still Is a man and not a machine. He cats, sleeps, shaves like nil the men he fights. He lias v all Ihe !iu;nan foibles. His chin Is not above being hurt,.'and his stpmacli'wll^yleld to a mighty Wow. In a way, Ihe praise that Is heard of. the men who last a few rounds with Louis Ls the highest .form of tiibute/to the champion. His record Is Ao tremendous, his hitting so 'devastating, that he now ; Is looked "upon as a robot killers and we have evolved an entirely new method of measuring challengers for. the title. ' They don't have to win lo earn the laurel wreath. All they have to do Is to escape with their lives, shqw a little courage, and make it last long enough to get all the customers'.seated.
