' PAGE EIGHT New York Promoter Feels. That Competition. With World's Fair Too Mud .NEW YORK,-June 3 (UP)—Till report' that Promoter Mike Jacob has decided to move the Joe Louis- Tony Gnlento heavyweight title ; fight from New York to Philadelphia- may become an official bulletin before 1 the promised fireworks die down at today's meeting of Ihn boxing commission. Jacobs was so dlsnpiioinled at the $69,349.57 net gate at the ton Nova-Max Bfier brawl Thursday night, that he Is ready to ' take almost any risks to get the big bout-out of competition with the World's Fair. He blames the fair for holding the-Attendance down to 16,738 paid customers. Mike is expected to find excuse enough to remove the scheduled June 28th championship bout to Philadelphia when the 'boxing sol- ons rule today on the request of Gatonto's manager, Joe Jacobs, for reinstatement ns a manager and second in this state. Tills is the day that Lonls mid Galento are supposed to .sign (lie commission's regular contract forms for the fight, but Galento will not attach his name to anything until his manager gets what he wants from the commission. Joe Jacobs has been under suspension since he refused to force Golcnto to go to a camp to train for a scheduled bout with Hairy Thomas In February 1SB8, Galento also was suspended at the time, but Die commission re- r felted for Tony to fight Nathan Maim nt Madison Square Garden In May last year, Now it Is "Yussel's" turn to crack the whip, and he Is hoping that the commission declines to reinstate him for two reasons: (1) He believes the fight will draw more money Jn Philadelphia where Tony enjoys his largest following; (2) He believes tl will be a black mark against the commission for allowing "personal grievances" to shove (lie fight out, of the state. If. the'fight does land in Philadelphia and draws well, it probably will be the signal for prompter Mike to jerk nil his other big shows out of New York for the duration of the fair. He had planned to stage another heavyweight championship match here in the fall but It probably 'will go to Chicago if Louis retains the Ulle against Galento. But if Tony should win the ciown, he most likely would make his fust • defense in Philadelphia' Nova, who qualified for the September shot at the title by shopping Boer, may not be ready for Louis then, but he wouldn't lose any time signing on the dotted line If Gnlcnlo held the title.

Ned Taylor Next Foe Of Tiger Long Herd Increased To Two Million HV C'AIUIOLL KRNWOKT1IY from delegate to Alaska, proposes that United States develop a herd of 2,000.000 reindeer in Alaska as a wartime meat reserve. The purpose of such a reserve would be to avoid dependence on distant overseas sources of meat such as Argentine or Australia in an emergency, Dimcnd suggests. rniiori.» Lon =' " the S ° ° f " Reindeer meat an excellent substitute for beef, but in normal limes such a herd would no-wise compete* willi the large domestic beef industry of the United States, Recording to Dimond. The herd would be restricted to use for Alaskan natives except in emergency when the Federal government could authorize the use of its meat generally in the nation, he sii^pnsted. lli'sull of Tinned l!cef lion- Discussion o! emergency meat nilions arose as a result of a move by President Rcosevelt ID obtain Argentine canned corned beef for the U. S. Navy, on ground that it was of superior quality and lower price than domestic corned beef. Congress overruled the President on this issue, chiefly as a result cf pressure from representatives of cattle raising states to prohibit the purchase of fcrcisn goods. Some experts recalled tlml during the World. War the United States large When Dimond was questioned, among other members of C;n- grcss, for his views on the meat situation, he made the suggestion of reserve supplies in Alaska. "Canned reindeer meat is just ns lusty ami gcod rtualHy as canned beef." he said. "Most people can scarcely tell the difference. imported from Argentina amounts cf canned beef. "It wculd seem reasonable tiling therefore lo develop a large herd of reindeer in Alaska, which in normal times would be used exclusively by the native |X>pulallon but which in time of great national emergency such as a war, could be slaughtered in large part for cinsumptlon." Herd Numbers 500,000 Dimond said the present reindeer herd In Alaska Is estimated at 5DD.COO nnimnls, but it could be Increased to about 2.000.000 feasibly. "Then in emergency it could be reduced again by at least 1,000,000 or even to Ihc present level of 500,000 without serious reactions," he said. Dimond said that Congress recently authorized the federal purchase of nil reindeer In Alaska not belonging to natives, with the Idea of helping native economy. But funds never were'provided to complete this plan. Only rcutinc funds for administration of existing reindeer are appropriated annually by Congress, lie s.ild It would nt least be a practical 'measure to appropriate some modest additional funds to start a reserve herd.

More and more seasoned fishermen who have landed tarpon, sea >ass, and other fish native to southern waters arc turning to the rivers for a less costly means of .•ratifying their love for the sport. Mull told the story of a retired awyer to whom lie taught the art of gar-fishing. Converted, the sportsman outfitted a shanty boat and moored it a. mile or so below a small river town where fish docks ined the waterfront.,He sits comfortably on the rear veranda of his loating home, and dozes while his line slowly reels out with the current.
