Armstrong Will Battle in Garden New York, Jan. 11 (/P)—Little Henry Armstrong, generally acclaimed 1937's outstanding ring performer, launches a new campaign tomorrow night in a ten- round light with Enrico Venturi, one of the best of the lightweights, in Madison Square Garden. The sensational Los Angeles Negro, who topped off a streak of 27 consecutive victories by winning the world's featherweight title from Petey Sarron of Birmingham, is a 5 to 9 shot to defeat the Italian, but no better than even money to cut another notch in his knockout gun. Last year Armstrong kayoed 2G of his 27 opponents. The only man to stay the distance with him was Aldo Spoldi, another Italian and Yenlnri's arch rival. Enrico will put out all he has to finish on his feet. MARKETS IN GAME IGNITE Celanese Quint of Cumberland Their Foes Guardsmen Playing Tonight at the Armory basketball fans will be treated to a double bill that has all the earmarks of being one of the best twin attractions that will be offered the fans this season. The Company B team will clash with the Finnish-Americans of Baltimore In the opening ntlracllon at 7:30 o'clock and this game will be followed by the Markets meeting the Celanese team of Cumberland. The upstaters will be remembered as the team that broke the win streak of the Mais kets after they had gone twelve straight. Both these games should be well worth sitting in on as the visiting teams have plenty of talent and the locals will be pressed to the limit to gain victories. So far the Finnish-Americans have not dropped a game and the Guardsmen are out to take their measure and thereby place a feather in their hat. Coach Ken Dudley has worked hard with his men and has them in the best of shape for this battle. In the Markets-Celanese clash fans will sec a well-balanced team in the upstaters, the majority of them having represented Penn (Vvenue when that team swept through the scbolaslic ranks several years back.

TALES IN TIDBITS That Stiff Hat May Be Joe Louis' Undoing Not the Hat, of Course, But What It Means When Hungry Guys Are Fed They Quit Fighting MARTINSBURG IS WINNER OF GAME Hagerstown Y Volleyball Team Defeated in Opening Loop Contest 4-1 The Hagerstown "Y" volley hall team got off to a had start in the Trl-State League last night when they opened the season for the league in Martinsburg where the Martinsbiirg A. C. took across the local "killers" hy a score of four games won out of five played in the match. Hagerstown was somewhat handicapped due to the fact that a few of Us stars were unable to make road ahead of him and saw years of back-hreaking toil the I rip.

LEAVES GAME --ByJackfSords By BILL BRAUCHER Central Press Sports Editor New York, .Ian. 11.—Joe Louis has gone to Lafayetteville, N. Y,, for the first stages of his training to meet Nathan Mann in Madison Square Garden, February 21. Mann is a fair to middling heavyweight who had eight, fights last year, won seven of them and got a draw in the other, so he's batting 1.000 in the Cauliflower League. I think he has a chance to beat Louis. Perhaps we ought to qualify that—he has a good chance to beat Louis. It doesn't sound like good sense to say so, but it is a hunch that the facts seem unable to overcome. Mann has a good chance 10 beat Louis. it's my hunch, because Louis will be in (here helping him to do it. During the Christmas holidays I saw a picture of Joe Louis ,in his Detroit cafe with his wife, Marva. Joe appeared indolent, as usual, and fat. He has a wicked way with fried chicken and pork chops. But the thing that stuck out all over the picture, as far as I was concerned, was the stiff hat. A stiff hat can say a pile of words about its wearer. It represents a peak in prosperity, and to a hoy who not so long ago looked down the long only and trouble, the sudden riches that the hat represents must seem to be a vision of heaven realized. Joe said he weighed 208 pound's when he was here for a few days before starting to camp, and (hat he felt fine and wouldn't have any trouble taking off the fat that easy living, rich food and a lot of won- derf" 1 sleep (and can he sleep!) h<ive padded him with here and there. Probably he won't have any trouble, either. But it seems to me, that something Joe had inside when he was fighting his way up through the amateurs has gone, and it will be very hard for him to recapture. We have seen^ many, many hungry boys fight their way in trom the cold streets only to lose the line edge of their ambition when filled with food and warmed by fires and friends. Joe isn't cold and hungry any more. He has everything that life denied him during his early youth, and is enjoying it as only a fellow naturally inclined to laziness could. As he goes along, fighting will become more and more of a bore and burden to him. Louis never did have a great deal of aggressiveness to lose. The Dempsey Case I think it was Nate Lewis, wise old Chicago fight veteran, who said that a champion never is as good as he was on the day he won the championship. There is a pile of Irulh in that. You remember the brown tiger that Jack Dempsey was at Toledo when he all but annihilated complacent Jess Willarfi/ And not so long afterward, a matter of months, in the first defense of his title, Dempsey came within a whisper of losing to Bill Brennan In Madison Square Garden. The Man Mauler went through 12 terrible rounds that night before he finally managed to beat Bill down with rabbit punches. In Dempsey's case it was the stiff hat, too, and the life that went with topper and tails, of course. Old Jack crawled from under a box car to fight his way into the land of music, soft lights, milk and honey. A few months of. it almost wrecked the career of the greatest natural fighter of the age. That's why I think Nathan Mann 'has a good chance to beat Joe Louis when they meet in the Garden next month. Martinsburg came back to lal'.^ the balance. The fourth game was nip and took and ended in a score of 15-13. Those in the local lineup were: Polterfleld. Fpltz, Rice, Kusncr. Zacherly and Eavey. Thomas, of Martinsbiirg. was outstanding for his team. Nftxl match in Ihe league will be Thursday night when Co. B takes on AVaynesboro in (he Pennsy lown. Hagerstown plays again next Tuesday night.
