NEW YORK.—Tom O'Hourko's Schmeling-Louis battle. Thirty tleal'n was just an incident lo thc years ago it would 'have bean a newspaper story sharing space with thc show, for a generation ago O'Roiirke was the c*ar of the fight game in New York. By a strange, perverse Iwtsl of fate, O'Roiirke, who won his greatest fame handling and backing Ne- fcTO warriors nnd \\ho always was In their corner, dlccl of n heart attack in Max Schmcllng's dressing room after wlilsperin'g words of advice to thc white man an hour before the German cracked down UIKIII Joe Louis. O'Hourke, who was 83, went as he u'ould liavo gone had lie iiad his choice—surrounded by the retinue of a big fight. Nor would have O'Roiirke, the leading handler of Negro n\;htsrs —he managed George Dixon ami Joe waleoU—been disillusioned with Jo many 'others had lie lived just an hour longer. "I/nils always fcinli twice with liis left before jabbing," O'Roiirke lold ficlimellug. "lie holds his head too high when he comes in and ',ils left glove loo low. It leaves Win set just right for you. Keep far away from him, make him feint and lead, and then send In a smashing right." Tom OTtouke, n keen student of Ihe game, seldom was wrong, and the Sc'nmeling-Louis engagement proved that age Imdn'l dimmed lii.s eyesight or affected his judgment. * * * O'lluiirkc Held Boxing icnniiuly in New York O'Kourko was the last of the really old guard of colorful fi». ores In early American boxing history. Such veterans as William A. Brady. James-Wood Cof- frolli, Charley Harvey, Billy James J. Johnston, Jim Joe Humphries, Dan Billy Gibson, Billy Meant) Al Up|><> were O nli Roche. Uticklcy. Morgan, Carney, obtaining their starts when O'Koiirke was a power cf bfcrc-knuckle and leather-draped fisticuffing. ,, O'Rour'ke •;*xti£ the country'.'! standout, iirqmot^r long before 1900, when Tex Ulckard so dramatically cnU'i'ed fne nc-ld with his Nelson-Gnus marathon in the gold fields of Nevada. O'Roiirke virtually was a one- man oligarchy In New York, and it remained unbroken until the daring Rickard invaded the east to take control of the old Gardsii with the advent of the Walker law. The Irishman controlled the only four dtibs l« Manhattan during the old Horlon law days—the old Garden, trie National Sporting Ch\b, the Lenox A. C., and the Coney Island Club.

In 19H Old Tom stornral Albany mid sought a New York state legislative investigation of Rickard and Mike Jacobs, the ticket scalper, alleging that the pair had formed an alliance lo bleed tho public by means of "scandalous ticket speculation" in connection "with Important contests. Old Tom couldn't get any action. Nobody cared. JILs spirit crushed for f. K (| mc , being, when , lie found himself checkmated In boxing, O'Hourke didn't |»p Imck Into the sports headlines until < he launched a move to form a t'jiird niajor baseball circuit in 1926. He soon found out thai bankroll men didn't care much about trying to buck the already well- lean Leagues, however. oi;t Tom was a .bit lost in his new venture too. It wasn't bis field. •Probably because of his affiliation wilh Dixon nii:t Walcott, O'Roiirke was ready to plead t'iiii canss of fair play for the colored nghler. OM Tom was one of those who tried to badger jack ncmp- sey into fighting Wills. lie went *o fur as to offer the Manassa Man to accept the a million dollars match.
