PAGE BIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS .Ex-Champ of Several Disappointing Tills !n llli- gical Match. lly 1IARKV GRAYSOX Sjiorls Ijlilor, M:A Service NEW YORK.—Havinij permitted venerable Jack Sharkcy to come back for no apparent reason, the Boxing Commission should keep an eye on the former champion's Illogical match with Joe Louis at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night. The purpose of the 10-rouml contest obviously Is to rebuild Louis, nnd Sharkcy has been mixed up In so many unsatisfactory affairs of the ring Hint every angle before and during the/bout should be earn- fully scrutlnkprt. If I/mis can fight hall as goad as he was supposed to be able lo before Max Schmcling dipped the (Mocobto wonder boy In rosin, lie should bell out Sharkcy In three or four rounds. However, the yo;in'; Negro has Icoked so bad in workouts thai trained observers vonlil nrt i>« surprised at anything. Here we find the s'-rnns;: spectacle of a 34-year-old Sharkcy, w'.ic has not had a major battle since 1933, and who th?n was kmskr 1 out by Prlmo Camera's invisib!: iipliercut and subsequently belt™ by King ly-vlnsky anil Tommi 1 Ixiughran, being conceded by many a soo<l chnnce of spilling LouU whr only two months ago wns belli? compared with Immortals of tlij heavyweight tllvlsion. Louis' Training Itcspousllile Nothing simrkcy Ins done has brought this condition abaut Toe former sailor's comeback lo date consists of a knockout of Unknown .Winston, which he had lo perform twice to convince Massachusetts officials that l|, wns on the level; a defeat ami onlv a draw In a return match wilh l'n« light-hilling Tony Sliucco, and a. decision over Phil lirubakcr, a gresn voun"- ster. ' Louis' performances in trnlnlni nt.Pompton Lakes nlone are responsible for the ^iin to Sharkcy. Some believe Hint, i s:tnncllnt> knocked all 'nght out of the Bark Angel, and left hl m gnu shv Even If Louis has not yet corrected his fault of carryln^ his Ml guard loo low and Is "a mark for right-hand shots, he shouldn't have too much to worry about in shur- key. who wasn't a particularly good hitler in his best days. We repeat .trial it Is dinicuH lo imagine Ihe jwsse Sharkey of today Ironing ojt the i/i,| s who withstood Schmeliiis's sustained attack for 12 rounds. That would be as hard to understand as Shai key's return lo the wprs. The gob never was In toxins' for niiythlng more than he could get. out of it in a financial way. He has all the money ho will ever need. Safety First Willi Sharkey .

But It remained for Fergus Mc- Kccver. a student of political science and economics of Kunsu, lo piilnl Hie clearest picture of tin Immensity of tho production on the oilier side. Ill an Informative and entertaining letter.

Industry, and ucopic mis thfi Olympics. "Although the Olympics wcm the big show and the many Madia were sold out, Berlin had 50 'world expositions' going on simultaneously," writes McKcever.! "There were automobile shows, all- shows, nnviil dlsjilays, mllilurj ' maneuvers, art displays, technical shows, and culture oxpnsltios." Germany prepared the production as though It were a strategic problem. "The nation wns co-ordinated su that all, from the big [rusts lo pi'ddltM-s, worked under tmvcrn- ment orders," explains McKccvcr. "Business boomed. Special trains' mil everywhere, llc-rlln's four mid a half million people wcro boosted to seven million. Industry ran wide open. German ships arrive:! at all ports filled lo capacity Cafes were crowded. Theaters solti out. no beggars during the Olympic!. Newspapers hud many 'help wanted' ads Construction was going on everywhere. Everyone had renewed hope, for Ihe future. "The Olympic City and stadia were without rival In the world, "It combined all the facilities of a!! the sports In one center complete with Its own administration and transportation syftcms. "With it wa.s combined an exposition displaying all the might iiu glory of Germany's past, ""••"lit, and future.
