He went through a 10-roumi exhibition bout with Johnny Fiynn of Rochester, N.Y. for the most part, he was content with an occasional flurry of action or keeping Plynn at a safe distance. But in the ninth round, the 35-year-old brown bomber uncorked a short left hook that put Plynn down for an eight count. There were no other knockdowns although Louis jolted Flynn on several other occasions.

NOBLE GILL PONTIAC, INC. 216 South Lilly Rhone 4371 They argue that their team scored victories over every Little team on its schedule, including Hayti, conference champions. The boys of Coach Vic Fieavcs, — after a wlnless season in 1348. came' roaring back this year to defeat East Prairie, 13-0: Haytl, 19-0; Maiden. 21-12; and Rtsco, 39-6. All arc Little Eight teams. The only catch lies in the fact that conference rules state a team must play at least five loop games to be eligible for the crown. Por- tagevllle played only four. Coach Heaves explains that he thought he had a game with Illmo- Fornfell, which would have made the fifth conference game and proo- ably woold have given Portagevillc the title. "We played them last year and the assumption was that we would meet again this year. For some reason Illmo-Fornfelt cancelled the game this year and that left us without the necessary number of conference games. We feel we could have won this game because Illmo- Fornfelt didn't win a game nil year," Coach Reaves said. Even without being officially recognized as champions. Portngcvflle fans feel their team is the best of small southeast Missouri schools and the record tends to bear theni out.
