NOVA HAD NO CHANCE TO WIN AGAINST THE BROWN BOMBER LOUIS CLEARLY MASTEB IN CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT THAT ENDED IN TECHNICAL , KNOCKOUT By HARRY FERGUSON U. F. Sports Editor , NEW YORK/ Sept 30.—If Jo« Louis has slipped, then the sun rl»e» in the west, Wilikie is president and Marlene Dietrich is bow-legged. There he stands—winner and still champion of the world; defender of the title in 19 bouts, a cunning, cold, cruel piece of fighting machinery that time does not rust or age dull. He retained his title last night with a savage surge ot power that left Lou Nova dazed and bleeding, knee deep In the ruins and rubbi* of all his theories about the cosmic punch, the dynamic stance and the pull of gravity. H goes into the xtct-rd as a tech- nical knockout at two minutes anc 69 seconds of the sixth round, but lines of type will never tell the story. It was a craftsman against an apprentice, an expert against a novice. Nova- never had a chance He was out-fought and out-thought Louis wrote the prescription for this fight, filled it himself and ther rammed the bitter medicine of de feat down Nova's throat with hii own hands. Louis did everything right; Nova nothing. From the moment Nov came out of his corner, standing up straight, trying to box at long dis tance— exactly the type of fighte who is Louis' dish— his doom wa written as plain as the stars tha looked down on 58,549 persons ii the Polo Grounds. In that ring a storm was guther ing.

Vandenberg, R,. Micl)., Policy Not Known There was uncertainty whether Mr. Roosevelt was prepared to go so 'ar as Hull, Connelly and Willkie and many others urge in amending what the president, himself, has re- erred to as the "so-called" neutrally act. House veterans are divided on the question! But authority for arming the Ships is the minimum of likely amendment and both house and senate leaders are confident ;hey can get the needed majorities. Some senate veterans believe that oody would vote to scrap the entire act.

Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, Jr., to limit poration profits to six per an indirect attempt to "r capitalistic system." .•'' 'I hasn't a semblance of Juitifj- cation," he said in an interview, "tf war profits are not being recaptured, there are ways and meaiw.'Af recapturing them by indirect ftctibh. It isn't necessay to tear up fundi- mental economic principles to do it." Vandenberg's statement came amidst widespread opposition to Morgenthau's plan in ccngrea* and even among administration officials. Morgenlhau revealed at a prcia conference late yesterday that hla plan would not be ready to submit to congress until January and that, if enacted, it would not apply to 1941 corporation earnings.

TAX PROFITEERS ARE WARNED THEY FACE HEAVY PENALTIES MAXIMUM FINE OF $1,000 PROVIDED FOR FALSELY BLAMING NEW TAXES FOR HIGH PRICE WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.—The! treasury prepared today to crack | down on any "tax pro/iteers"— dealers who attempt to reap large profits by misrepresenting the new federal excise taxes which go into effect ..tomorrow. The Bureau of Internal Revenue, an official said, will set-.k prosecution of: \. Any merchant, for example, who increases the price of an article 20 per cent to cover a 10 per cent tax, and then advertises that the entire increase is due to added taxation. 2. Any dealer, who by purchasing in large quantities, undersells smaller coi/jpctiturs ii(jj calli attention to his accomplishment by telling the public: "We absorb the tax." The bureau is relying on ita recently-increased staff of field agents and upon the consumer public to detect law violations. The Office of Price Administration also plans to watch price increases closely. The revenue code provides a maximum fine of $1,000 for dealers falsely blaming high prices ors the new federal levies. The 1B4I ta* bill contains a section providing" a similar penalty for dealers who attempt ''to lead any person to bti- lieve that the price of the arUcH dots not include the tax ircpo*ed by Uiis chapter" — in other words, the people who tell the public "we absorb the tax."
