Tlie Liv erniore Laminar has Jusi turnei arid.a big, strong, kid can ena] out .of a lot of bad nights In hurry. Baer labors like a galley slave once he gets around to It. He trained like a lighter of the old school In preparing for Schmellitg, work- ng too hard. If anything. He relishes' boxing with capable sparring partners. I'll never forgel Mike Cantwell, the old-timer who passes for his trainer, standing over him as he lay flat on his back, and firing heavy medicine ball al his midriff. That went on for days over Ihe protests of numerous well wishers who realized that the practice could result in nothing more thai tearing the curley-halred Califor nlan apart. But Baer has his own ideas h regard lo training. When he firs entered the Garden four years ago to meet the late Emle Schaaf.
