Although considerably yovnger thnn Risko, OHil had gone hack even farther than the one- lime baker boy. Thai was the difference, if any, between them. Encouraged by. this, Ihe ever optimistic': and (courageous Risko is tackling the vastly more accomplished, younger, and active John Henry Lewis here Uoc. 17. Although Isidore (Jnslanaga clipped him while he was cold In Ijjrtroit not long ngo, ami pom- melled him so badly that lie was forced to cancel a trip abroad, Lewis still must be considered one cf Die best among the mediocre crop of mittmen plying their trade toda,y.

The Old Mrehorsc But Risko . dismisses Lewis as .ilrily as lie dismissed She gigantic George Godfrey and Bearcat : :WrIght In 1928. .The Austrian never lost, to a Negro, which may be one reason /why he actually is looking right by Lewis In the direction of Joe Louis. It Isn't lack of money that has returned Risks- to the wars. The Spoiler of Tex Rickard's heyday Is worth 'something like $200,000. He has $50,000 In cash and a monthly income of $550 from two- family houses and such. "1 couldn't stand being out," tmiles Rtsko. "Guess I just had to take" a., sock nt somebody." " So he worked for weeks in biihn's little walk-up gymnasium, on the S'est side of Cleveland, where IK .started. Toiling in nothing more than suits of old-fashioned winter underwear, he took .off more than 30 pounds, and now comes in at 198, which was his weight when he was in full stride. 'Naturally, there arc'rolk of fat around Risko's waist, however,. In three years of idleness he took on tonnage which was not meant to come off the frame of a man who will be^35-years old this month.
