Certainly, Louis was not a great fighter against gallant Tony Oa- lento, whose first remark after he was rescued from the wreckage at Yankee Stadium Ihe other night was: ;;NOW I know he's a bum." Against rouiKi man Gatento, Louis was what he was the night Max Schmellng knocked him kicking three years ago.' . . A sharp-hitting young negro with a glass law •who was badly befuddled every time he was smacked. Louis' apparent vulnerability | s one of the biggest things In his favor as an attraction, it is what makes It possible; for him to be paired wllh the mediocre lot of opponents that have- been around since he came into prominence Even Lou Nova, who was a bit i"^m' ? ? r/ec was ft S al »st the bnllling barrel finishing' Hie round, let alone getting up, but he struggled to Ills plus, rushed to close rjuartm and survived.

'Louis actually flew through the air and landed Hat on his back but when he got up without taking a count, Galento was too far gone to do anything about It. * • * ' FIGHT SUCCESS DESPITE UNFAVORABLE 1'RKSS ,The end In the fourth was sickening, Galcrito took an unmerciful lacing until he stumbled into the ropes out on his feel, with only a few seconds of the round remain- Ing..

DETROIT IS LOGICAL Sl'OT FOR. FIGHT lint H seems certain that Louis' next start -will be made In Detroit, where Pnslor scored a tremendous lilt n fciv weeks ago Jn shellacking the Brown Bomber's home town contemporary, Roscoo Tolcs. Pastor Is ihe only opponent in sight who will draw important money with Louis, and Detroit is the only place where they'can get It. Brlggs Stadium will be the former (eammale on the Athletics, out on strikes. McNair threw his bat In the air. Manager Jimmy Dykes, who roomed with Rommel nine years, charged ofl the bench to get at, his' cx-roomle but.was stopped by Umpire Cal Hubbard, the ex-tncklc who scales 250 pounds. Lyons, a Sunday school boy, got into the argument and banished along with McNnfr and Dykes. The previous day Greenbcrg ami Kuhel had their aigument .and Dykes was fuming o\cr at the remarks . pouring nil the Tigers' bench iiboul the Wlilte Sox "only talking tough." Casey Stengel, Bees' pilot, and Merrill May, Phils' liiircl baseman, staged an Imbroglio 'of their own nnu were chased by the nmps. Even though hopelessly out of the race, the Red Sox went after the Yanks hammer and tongs. Jim Tabor spiked Buddy Rosar on Saturday. Yesterday Catcher Gene Desnulels was shaken up and cut on the lip. Second Baseman Bobby Doerr -was hit on the elbow by a pitched ball, Outfielder Tommy Hcnilch crashed Into the wall going after n fly and split open his sculp. He had to have four stitches taken in the wound. They are playing baseball for keeps this year as they did In the days of Herzog, Cobb, Evers, Weaver and Chief Myers. Both pennant races remained status quo yesterday. The Reds split a double header with the Cubs and the Yankees divided with the tied Sox. Cincinnati slugged out an lt-3 victory over the Cubs in the opener before 42,094 and then tossed away the second game, 9-8, on base on balls, the Reds' big weakness. Lefty Grove beat Lefty Gomez in the opener, 7-3, but the Yanks came back to murder the Red Sox, 9-3, in the nlghtcnp. Tommy Bridges Uung up Ills llth triumph as he let the White Sox down with four hits for a 5-1 victory. Cleveland and St. Louis split n twin bill, the Browns taking the first.

Washing- tcry in which iodine is the active ton slugged its way Into sixth material. Both learns kept on the Chicks heels nt a blistering pace last week but Saturday, when Memphis clinched the role of host for the annual event next'-Thursday night, they fell apart before.sec- ond division competition. Both Ihe Lookouts and crackers were defeated In double-headers yesterday, the New .Orleans Pelicans defeated Chattanooga .'8''to-5 and 5 to 1, and ^Atlanta.fell before the Birmingham' Barons 1 to 0 and 2 to 1. Two other double-headers were rained out, giving the -Chicks a breathing spell in which Ui prepare for the stars of the-other seven clubs In : Thursday's encounter. ..;'.'

Johnnie Humphries, 1 former Pel and lately n Cleveland Indian, celebrated his return to his old mates by lotting the Lookouts down with .five hits In the nightcap. Humphries was swapped to the Pels for Floyd Stromme. ., Both games nt Birmingham were decided in extra innings. Julian Tubb, ,rookle righthander, gained the decision over Jinx Polndextcr In the opener when Woody Arke- keUi singled honie a Baron run in the 10th liming for the" only score of the game.
