And tlie kid Is ready. He said so in Die early hours of today when lie stepped out of n needle .shower, pulled on his socks and lemarked: "Okay, bring on Joe Louts." He said it not boastfully* but with a quiet air of nuthcrily lh;il belongs to n mini who hns just mntcli starts today. Promoter Mike knocked n former champion Into n heavyweight half-Minded, bleeding mess.

The Smokies threatened lo rout Atlanta from second place,, aflcr taking both sides of a double header ;from the Crackers, 14-10 and 9-4. i The first game In yesterday's lilt parade was a scoring nightmare for both clubs The Smokies clubbed Miller, Harris and Stein for 18 liilSi Including three runs. Atlanta knocked Swigart, Wat-tins, Sharpe and Lamanskl for 1C. In the second encounter, the Crackers fared even worse. Knox:Ville took the Atlanta moundsman, Johnson, for a 14-hit ride and four more home runs, giving the Smokies 32 hits- and seven homers for the day. Rnmbcrt held the Crackers to eight h.lts in the finale. Atlanta rang up two four-bag clouts—by Richards in the opener, and another by Rucker in the cur- lain game. . Tiie double loss by Atlanta and Chattanooga's 3-to-l victory over Nashville gave the Lookouts a more secure hold on the lead. Dick Bass, pitching for the leaders, allowed the Vols only six hits. Babe Barna, Chattanooga outfielder, hit a home run with two ab.ard in the third, dclng enough scoring In one Inning to .tin handily Chattanooga got, eight hits off Martynlk and Jeffcoat. Memphis took over fourth place by sweeping a double header with Birmingham, pushing the Barons into shth position Carl Doyle kept eight hits well scattered In the opener as he pitched a 5-1 win for the Chicks. Frank Gaddy also did an eight-Job for Memphis in the second game, shutting out the Barons 1-0 Carl Maltzberger celebrated his recent acquisition by New Orleans with fancy pitching that netted a 2-to-O shutout "over Little Heck MaHzberger gave up only five hits.

(UP)—A new American and world record for Irylng to make friends nnd Influence people was established by Tony ITwo Ton) Gnlento In the ring at Yankee Stadium last night. At his very best Dale Carnegie never gave such a superb exhibition of free-style Ingrullntlon ns did Galento when introduced from the ring with Joe Louis just before the •^ova-Bacr fight.' Faced by the man he has called bum In every language nt his command, nnd whom he must fight n a few weeks, Galcnl, greeted him wllli a warmth worthy of n 'ather welcoming n prodigal son or sweetheart meeting her lover ome from the wars. Already in Die ring when Louis' nine wns nnnoiinced. Tony set Imself lip as n one-man cheering cction as Joe walked Up tlio aisle. le clapped his hands with the Igor of a paid applaiider curlaln- illing an operatic tenor, and his ace, wreathed in smile.'; nnd aglow •ith good will, was just one huge nd living welcome mat. Louis is scarcely In the ring he- ire Tony, moving with an alac- ty amazing in one his size nnd ,e, was beside him, offering his nnd. When Louis was hesitant In fcring his, Tony grabbed it and look it as though it were a pump nd he a parched dust bowl farmer. He seemed reluctant lo relensc oc's right hnnd, nnd kept holding h'to it until someone in the front ow yelled; '"flint's right, Tony, don't let It .ose. Hold it right on until after une 28. You'll be safer. Louis filially freed himself of his c\\- found nnd devoted friend, nnd nlked across the ring to wish good ick, first to Bacr and then to Novn. hen he started to go back to his eat In Ihe ringside. But Tony apparently was taking o chances on Joe's getting nwny ithout realizing how deeply he Tony) felt towards him. Before Joe auld leave the ring Tony waddled viftly across the canvas and lap- ed Louis on the back. Surprised, Ooe turned around, and lerc wns Gnlento, the man who ns castigated him for months, idling and liolding out his hand, eforc Louis had lime lo react one ay or another, Tony grasped his and nnd started shaking it nil ver again. And he continued to nake it until Louis was out of the ing. Shocking ns wns Gtilcnto's be- avtor lo his friends, they admitted o n man thnt it wns n master trokc of diplomacy. Like the early mcricnn settlers pacifying the •wages Kith trinkets nnd beads, ke a defendant smiling on the ury that holds his fate in its nnds, Tony wns doing his best to ct on the good side of Louis before no falcful night of June 28. Tony spoke words to Laiiis during icir time in the ring, and while t Is not definitely known whnt lie aid, the look on his face would ndtcalc that they were something kc these: "My. you Icok nice tonight, Joe. 'on really are a classy dresser. Listen, I've been wanting to know on better. Why don't you come out o the place for a beer and meet no boys. Everything'!! be on the ouse, too. And say, about that little usiness dale we have, later in the lonth. Let's don't get mad nbout 1. Let's go in there like friends nd have n nice time. Tell you hat, I won't try to hit yon if ou won't try to hit me. No use >f us getting hurt, is there pal, V pal." Except for one brief rr.imctil rticn Tony grabbed his hand for he second time, Louis gave uo acial evidence of his reaction to C-alento's friendliness. He gazed at lim much as a butcher looks upon a side of beef, coldly, lmi»rsonally. While Tony worked his wiles Joe slood patiently as a St. Bernard does when a lap dog plays about him. There is the chance, cf course, that Louis felt many things, but was Just tco dazzled by the brilliance of his sartorial get up to show them. Certainly his haberdashery was sufficient to dazzle. Ke was done up from head to toe in a green that, en first glance, made him look like ...thing so much ns the southern Up of Ireland on a spring morning. He had better not walk out in the country In that rig. i !e 'n be eaten by the first herd of cow he last night. ly out of fnce, right to the IxKly. So does Nova. Tunney didn't reem lo have much natural equipment when he started. Neither did Nova. Bill today the California kid, 24 yenrs old and with his best fighting years ahead of him, Is riding high. Nova Is no superman—lie's Just u plain, ordinary guy who works hard at his trade—so it may be thnt Louis will knock him all the way back to the Golden Gate when they get Into the ring together. But there Is also a fair chance thnt he will give Louis thc'stlffcst competition the boiiib- er hns had in tlie Inst two years. One thing wns settled once and for nil last night inside the green i LUTSE IEI BELL Lutes Protest Against Loss To Gosnell Allowed learn reencs—Novn can tnkc Five times Bacr got a clean shot at hts jaw and live limes Mnxie v.'histled across the right thnt sent Fmiikle Campbell to his grave. Nova shook 'em olT and came on. Novn didn't win on a technical -iiockoiil until Ihe nth round, but :6 this observer It seemed that .he Issue wns settled and salted nwny In the mad three minutes .hut made up the second round. In those three minutes Bncr fired everything in his arsenal and n bewildered sort of look came across list face as Nova took II all mid bored In, inviting more. In the middle of the round Brier ilammed Nova back against the ropes with a right to the head. He lad him pinned there, all set up for the kill. Once, twice, nnd a ililrcl lime Max drew back Ills right and fired, Novn tried to hrow n. right nnd missed badly nnd then, for the fltth lime In the •ound, Bncr cocked his right and sent it across like n rocket. But nstcnd of dropping, Nova fought ils way off the ropes and bulled Baer across the ring. The rest of the fight was n lili- ernl education In the art of carving lip a man's face. Baer had fired his last shot and Nova '.vent o work on him like a butcher. Jab, jab, jab, went Nova's left in- o Bftcr's face and soon the red eather was wet with Maxle's blood. By the eighth round ihe years hat Bacr spent along the plca- iiire path were demanding their due. His vitality was gone, his eft eye was a purple puff, and he .'as swinging a hopeless, helpless oimdhouse right on the off-chance hat he might Innd. In (he ninth ound Nova planted a hard left, in Ihe mouth and a crimson itreain spurted from Baer's lips. Between the 10th and llth rounds Referee Frnnkle Fullnni walked to Bner's corner and said: "I ought o stop this fight but I'll give you me more round." That's all Nova needed. In one nlnlite nnd 21 seconds of the llth ic had Baer's back to the ropes nnd was pouncitng him Into pulp. Then the referee slopped It. It was about time..
