THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5j 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Expects To Stage 20 Headline Fights In Gotham Before May NEW YORK, Dec. 5. iUP>—Mifce. Jacobs, in the busiest winter of his seven-year- promotional career, is .starling more fights than- a tricky- eyed blonde at' a stevedores' ball. Before the flowers thrust up their little noggins in May, the- maestro of maul will have staged more than 20 bouts during the Madison Square Garden season, and : several more outside of New York. Which shapes up as a record of- some sort. Mr. Jacobs and- his disobedient ) -store i.eeth arrived' today at Detroit where he will have- a finger in the pie Friday night when big- Abe Simon tries to clinch a- title shot at Joe Louis- by beating, another Detroit negro. Roscoe Toles. After the Detroit- show, "Uncle" Mike returns to Manhattan for Monday's "sighing of Billy Gonn to defend his light heavyweight title against Tommy Tucker of New York at an undisclosed site and date. It seems that Billy-the-K-id'tf .six-months time allowance has expired, and he must defend the 175- pound crown shortly or give it up, even though this defense interrupts his ambitious campaign among the heavies. Next Jacobs must drum up three more title matches for bomber Louis, who already is slated for two: against Al McCoy at Boston. Bee. 16. and against Red Burman at New York, Jan. 31. Jacobs is putting "Play-Boy" Louis on a fight-a-month schedule to bs certain that the somewhat logey champion will be in good shape when he begins May training for his outdoor June defense against Billy Conn or Maxie Baer—if Louis stiU has the title then. Bomber Joe's three additional defenses probably will be made at Philadelphia. Detroit and Chicago. Jacobs, who already has'~5t'aged seven bouts this season at the Garden and qne in Boston, will be busy meanwhile ballyhooing- five other shows already set for the Garden: U) Ken Overlin defends his mid- dlewtignc crown on Dec. 13 against young Steve Belloise who almost k«voed Overlin in a previous nbti- title engagement; (2) Lew Jenkins, lightweight king, and Fritzie Zivic, welterweight champ, tangle in- a' non-title l-2-rourider oiv Dec. 20;. <3) Billy Soose, who has registered non-title victories over both mid- HWeight champions—Overliri and Tony Zale—fights 10 rounds with- undefeated young Tami Maurlello of New York on Jan, 3;- C4) 1 Oiv Jan. 10. two heavyweight 10- rounders jnatch P;U Comiskey against Lou Nova, and Lee Savoid against Bill Poland, and (5) Henry Armstrong tries to recapture' the welterweight title from Fritzie Zivic on Jan. 17. During the next couple of weeks morp matches will be announced* because Jacobs still has about eight Garden dates to fill before April when the rodeo moves into the house that Rickard built. He also has other out-of-town commitments. Yes, Qholmondeley, old Uncle-. Michael is certainly .startin' a lot of fights. PACE- ftt* Naval Bombing Range Off Charleston Likely CHARLESTON, S. C. (UP)— The coastal area in the vicinity of Charleston wilt lie surveyed for the establishment of a 'possible bombing and gunnery site for navy planes. Naval authorities will inspect the local coastal area in the near future. Texas Woman Recalls Seeing "Billy the Kid" BALMORHEA. Tex. (UP)—One of the few living persons who glimpsed "Billy the Kid," youthful hero-badman of the Old" West, is Mrs. J. L..Moore, pioneer Balmorhea resident. One of her favorite stories is of the time when the bandit: visited her father's ranch. She describes him as "a quiet, modest sort of boy," and recalls that he borrowed fresh horses and returned them shortly afterward as promised. The first sale of Christmas seals in the United States- occurred at Wilmington. Del:, in 1907. Originally called Cross Greek- Town, Fayettteville, N. C.,, was renamed for General Lafayette. ScatEBDARD B GRAYSON NBA Sen'icc y Editor i.hc Chicago Bears have a more diversified attack. I pick them to \vin UIR National League' championship in the playoff with i.he .Redskins in Washington. Dec. 71 A rough guess would be that he cbiddn't, get 30. yet George Halas developed more than 200 plays out of the antiquated "T" formation, used with so much success by Stanford. The Bruins' style is as open as that of die Redskins. Halas employs a man-in-motion, and his club really rolls up the middle. The Redskins prevailed. 7-3, in their only meeting this fall, but Die men of Wrigley Field h^ the ball on the one-yard lino in i.he I'Jopmg seconds and were within eight yards of pay dirt on two nt.her occasions. It wa.s in the playoff against the Bears in Chicago in 1937 that SlmghV -Sammy Baugh pitched his finest gamp to take it all for thb Redskins, and. the tali Texan may again rise to the occasion. Baugh is the daddy of passers, but Sid buckinan of the Bears also' can throw the ball, and Davey O'Brien completing 33 forwards H gainst them fov a new all-time ircorri is something in I.he way of evidence that the Redskins' defense in Ihnt department isn't exactly impj-fjenablf*. Not one of O'Brien's >;o tcpsps \VHP intercepted. Tailback Baugh is not a great ball-carrier off the strong side, EO Washington is more formidable on fhe ^roiinri with Johnston or Dick- Todd lugging the leather off the' \veak side. Speaking of Davey O'Brien's amazing final game against the Redskins, it was too bad the small chap from Texas Christian- lacked, blocking in his two years with the Eagles. Philadelphians gave O'Brien a memento the other afternoon, with- an inscription calling him'- the greatest football player of all time. He wasn't that, of course. Gom:ng in at no more than 150 pounds, he had to give away too •.r.uch* weight. But. performing under discouraging circiimr.tance.s. O'Brien was far item b^ir.'j; n bust as a professional. No one outpasseo: him. He had all thr answers as a signal-caller, ball handler .and tailback . . . charged into defenders twice his si/,e. He was belted around and knocked down, bui always got up to go all the way. O'Brien, who retires from football to be a G-Man. was not the greatest- player of all time, but no bettor little man ever played the game. If hr locates criminals with only a small share of the ease with which he picked out pass receivers, plucky D.ivry O'Brien quickly wil! v -r"Tis a regular under Coach John Edaar Hoover. ideal y Shoes AT POI'UI.AR PRICKS JArWAIN 1 FKIEN f f)l J V SHOES FOR SIKN FI.KST L/VDY HOSIERY :!
