Hy JACK NE\V YORK, Oct. 11. <U.R)—Prob- ably the best-liked participant in modern sports is Staff Sergeant Joe Louis, the brown-skinned heavyweight champion, who captivates almost as many millions with his genial, down-to-earth personality as with his brown-lightning physical prowess. , G. I. Joe came back to th = United States yesterday, after more than six months in the eastern Atlantic theaters of war, and upon the faces of every one of the more lhart 30 newspapermen who attended his press conference was etched ns much weleoming gladness as the gladness Louis betrayed at coming home. Captain Fred V. Maly of San An- j tonlo, Texas, officer in charge of the tour, disclosed, "The servicemen —white and black—loved him where- ever he went. And the civilian natives swarired about him in enthusiastic hero worship that Joe could scarcely understand. Even German prisoners counted it a lucky day to be captured when Joe was at the front, and it seemed Incredible to those prisoners that a great guy like Louis should be endangered at the front." Veterans of "Resin Ravine" weie pleasurably impressed by the fact that, despite this overseas adulation, Jolting Joe's hat or cap size was still the same as when he came east to fight Primo Camera in 19H5, nine long years ago. Nothing that has happened since them—winning the. title—fighting for million-dollar gates—becoming perhaps the best known human being in the world— has changed lu's own evaluation of himself. That's the beauty of any approach to this unusual champion. Ills evaluation of himself has not changed, although he has changed Cl'DDY much. When he came from Detroit to New York to fight Camera nine years ago, ho sat in his first eastern press conference reading the funny papers, and saying, "Hugh! Ugh-ugh! Yup!" Completely on the defensive that day, because of selt- consciousness and lack of wordly information, he did not give off one complete sentence. But-yesterday, when Captain Maly had completed the formal introduction to the mass interview, Bomber Joe sat buck In his swivel c4iair_ at headquarters of the army's special service division and took genial cam- mand of the breeze shooting. His replies and comments wore directly to the point, but wrapped in homespun, humor like big training gloves—so no one would get hurt, not even Freddie Mills the highly-touted British heavyweight. Joe said Mills pulled back his left hook like a man opening a taxi door, and he threw his right like Southpaw Carl Hubbell "sendin' in a screwball." It was apparent that Mills is mediocre* Will the next heavyweight champion emerge from among servicemen? "He certainly won't be no 4-F." What are his future plans? "Best future in the army is a furlough, which I'll try to arrange when 1 go to Camp Slbert, Alabama, Wednesday." Were he and Billy Conn scared when their plane in England developed a stuck landing wheel? "Wo were worried for Alike Jacobs who might not be able to put on our return bout." Did 12 straight nights of buzz bombings interfere with bis sleep? "Notbin' could keep mo from sk'epin'—entirely," said the greatest all-out sleeper in pugilistic history. Will he defend the title when the war is over—despite his ring age? "I'll be only 31 next year. Us heavyweights mature late, lie- member, Jess Willard won the title when he was 3ti." Hollywood Fighter Earns 32nd Victory NEW BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 11. CD—Jimmy Doyle. 147, Hollywood, today held his thirty-second win in 33 fights after a fifth round knockout over Ralph Walton, 144, Montreal. Doyle scored his first eastern victory here last night when he exhibited a vicious two-handed attack to the body and head and finished Walton with a right cross to the jaw in the fifth. Walton was on the run from the fourth round on as Doyle exhibited a good knowledge of boxing with hard punching in his eastern debut. Shortstops Named Most Valuable Men ST. LOUIS. Oct. 11. C*)—Two of baseball's most outstanding infielders, Bobby (the Swinging) Doerr, Boston Red Sox second baseman, I and Martin (Slats) Marion, towering i shortstop of the world's champion St. Louis Cardinals, have been named by their Sporting News as the most valuable players in their respective leagues for 1944. The baseball weekly made its selections independently thifs year, after working in conjunction with a committee of tlie Baseball Writers Association since 1938. The association has announced that its selections, based on a poll of all its members, would be announced in November. The Red Sox star, before he left his team to join the army on September 3, was hitting .325. In the final American League averages he finished second to Manager Lou Boudreau of Cleveland, who hit .327. Marion has been one of the spark- plugs in Cardinals' drive to their third National League pennant and secopd world championship in three years. > The Sporting News also gave special mention to Hal Newhouser, southpaw pitcher, Tvho won 29 games for the Detroit Tigers and Bill Voi- selle who in his first year with the New York Giants won 21 games. Local Duck Season to Open October 14 SAN FUANC1SCO, Oct. 11. OB— Ducks, geese and mudheiiH should be plentiful when the shooing season opens Saturday, the fish and game commission reported today. Good shooting, however, will depend on weather, and the c'oinmis- sion's wardens noteii that duci<s were widely scattered because of herding activities of rice growers.

Have a "Coke"=Here's your reward ...or being a good neighbor in Nassau Underwater exploring in a homemade diving helmet is a novel sport in the West Indies. But the refreshment that's always welcome afterwards is the same as here in the States—ice-cold Coca-Cola. In Nassau as in New York, the pause that refreshes makes a refreshing interlude after strenuous work or play. In many lands around the globe, Coca-Cola has become a high-sign of friendliness, just as it is in your own home. • OTTIEO UNDII AUTHORITY Or THI COCA-COIA COMPANY IY THE COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY OF BAKERSFIELD 411 Nineteenth Street "Coke"= Coca-Cola It'i natural for popular name* to acquire friendly abbreviations.
