While the ballyhoo bureau has done a pretty fulr Job o( tearing down Joe I/onis and building up Max Schmclini;, Jacobs has had to BO far oul ol his way to keep tbe drums booming, Jacobs signed Sclnnellng to n^ilt Jim Braddock In the event that he won from Wills, but that didn't make. the. headlines, lor no one ex- pccls the German to beal the young ne^ro fit Yankee Stadium, June 18.

That usually was «ocd for some kind of a ynrn when Tommy Loughran jind thr boys worked next to Hans Ehm- Icr's lily pond nt Hooslck Palls Bui, what Jacobs would like most ofal is a little activity on thc part of the in-the-Bag Boys.

Miuicro is a very nervous-acting player who sports a little mustache. He started In the game as a cadoV, just as most of the experts started, lie was born In Elmalord, N.
