WALSH fcfEW YORK, Jan. 8 The Blad-dock-Schmeling world's championship meeting, the "Flnnegan" of the fight busfness, was very close to being "off again" this morning with the disclosure from two sources, equally Jinimpeachable, that conditions were taking .shape whereby Braddock will find It untenable to remain a party to the contract. Briefly, the non-sectarian anti-Naifl league, of whirh Samuel Unter-myer, the corporation attorney, In president. Is on the point of introducing a boycott against Rchmellup thaft will make all others seem pale and pointless, by contrast. And my information is that, when the bov-cott officially goes in, iBraddock goes out. He will declare, with a certain degree of logic, that there's no. equity in a contract that callu up6n him to fight fifteen rounds for 42' percent of a deficit. Complications - - The fight, 8b signed for before the boxing commission here last month, was supposed to have been definitely set for June 3 next in New York, wlrere the anti-Nazi feeling Is si 111 keen enough to have brought about pronounced activity by Influential members .of the non-sectarian leagu since- the Schmeling-Brad-dock tight first was suggested lasl summer. Scfimellng's status In Germany lias been looked Into, with the result that he 1b said to rate exhibit A in the gallery of Germa-: ny'a show-window display. Braddock Is most reasonable about. . Ho has $5,000 up there as a forfeit. But het would rather lose that than take a chanre on losinc hia title and his purse at one and the same time. OFFICER, A tbHEEP DO5.
