Charles-Walcotf Bout Tomorrow Night Rated Even CHICAGO. June 21. f/p>—For the first time since Joe Louis cornered the heavyweight boxing market 12 years ago and whipped all comers, a real even-Stephen contest for the title has shaped up in the Ezzard Charles-Jersey Joe Walcott scrap tomorrow night. Louis, before he retired and tossed up his crown for the Charles- Walcott winner, always was an overwhelming favorite. About the nearest he came to being dismantled was by Walcott in December of 1947. Jersey Joe Moored him and carried the attack llnough 15 rounds only to lose a decision which still is mighty controversial. Walcott, the 35-year-old family man from Camden, N.J.. and 27- year-old Charles, unmarried Cincinnati slugger who has lost only four times in eight years, are expected to enter the ring at cdds of about 6-5, take your pick. Charlfs' youth is ebing upheld by hU backers as his most decisive ed°e. Those who favor Walcott like his weight advantage of 196 pounds to Ezzy's 180. i Walcott's only fighting in the last year has been clone in exhibitions. Charles has been busy leaving the light-heavy ranks which he dominated to knockout such 200-pound- ers as Joe Baksi and Johnny Wednesday Si Thursday "Bachelor's Daughter" Gill RuM.ll Wednesday & Thursday "LOUISIANA" Governor Jimmie Davis, Margaret Lindsey Also Shorts NEW Box Opens Week Uajs 7:1* p.m. Matinee Saturday It Snnday SaL-Son I p.m font Showing Manila, Ark.
