EIGHT Armstrong [All Ready For Angott i * —— 'NEW YORK, June II. (UP)— T»Q former lightweight champions —,"Hainmerlii8 Hennery" Ann tiroiig and "Slammin' Sainnvy" An- ctt—collide ' tor.:jilt" at Madison Square Gulden,, as each (ries to stay-OH the comeback trail. *Tiie odds are 6 to 6,. and take your ~ choice.' : The boiit oilers a contrast.between:two radically dif ferent styles of fighting. Aniislrong I; "best known by his nickname of "little 1 perpetual motion." Ills milling fists and dancing feet are His .biggest asset. Angolt. on Die .'other hand, probably could make cut almost as well on a wrestling mat as he docs in the boxing ring, ilc believes In bcarin? down on Ills opponent and clinching at frequent intervals. ;A crowd of 17.COO is expected lo witness the 10-round bout. •••.Armstrong held the world light - v.'elght championship for a year and Jive days. He won It from Lou Ambers on. August 17, 1D38. And he lost it on the 22nd of Au- 'Eiislv 1939, to the same man—Am bers. II was In the latter part, of '38 that Henry held three championships at the snme time—tlie lightweight, featherweight and welterweight titles.' He's the only man In the history of boxing who's keen able to accomplish the feat. iAngolt picked up the lightweight, title in December of J941 from Lew Jenkins. He relinquished It last November, when he retired from the ring because of bad hands. .'Armstrong's comeback campaign started almost a. year' ago. He'd been out of action for a year and a-half—after losing all three of his crowns.- He began fighting on the West Coast, and racked up an impressive string of victories. Then he moved lo the East and continued liLs winning ways. He's had 22 bouts to dale, rind won 19 of them—14 by knockouts. ;Tho' Aiigdtt comebadk Is • more recent,: Sammy has had only one right.. -He gave Featherweight BLYTHgVELLE (ARK.)'

Armstrong probably will linve the crowd behind him tonight, because he's one of the most popular fH;hl- ors In New York. He was installed as favorite earlier this week, but a rush of Angolt support made the fight even money. Incidentally, (lie ownership of Ihe lightweight title itself has been clarified a bit. The Pennsylvania Athletic Commission lias recognized Bob Montogmcry ns king of the 135-pound division. Tills means that Montgomery is recognised in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. And It means that AngotU-who hails from Pennsylvania—is not recognized by his home state. Pennsylvania formerly had Indicated It would allow Angott to retain Ihc title, even though he retired for a few months. So Sammy Is going lo have lo work his way to the top. Tonight, Is- the first step—nnd it's : a big one. If he can pass Armstrong he'll be ready for a title shot. And the same goes for Henry.

Many leaders of our .enemies have expressed the thought thai one reason our men fought so well was partly because of training obtained in spurts. "You will recall thai Wellington said Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton, Col. L. II. Miignidcr writes Col. Franklin Kcaiblc, commanding officer at Fort Barrancas. "A German general staff officers lolcl me in 1922 upon the Hiiine that, following World , Wai 1, they had a committee .study why, from IQH through lOli). their Ijcst troops were so often defeated in fair combat by 'less efficient English and American troops. | "Tiiclr report, made following two years of study, was that the cause lay in Ihc superior leadership qualities and condition acquired by Kngllsh and American youths In spoils. "With characteristic thoroughness, n campaign of physical culture ami mass athletics was started among male and female youth." Japanese did very poorly In swimming in tlie Olympic Games of 19iO in Antwerp, stresses Major Griffith, but 12 years later, after they had been couched by Americans and studied American technique, they won all the aquatic events in the Games In Los An- t'oics. Oermany, prior lo World War I, was In a large sense a nation of gymnasts. Competitive athletics ........ .....

When Mussolini organized sports lo regenerate Italians, he hired American coaches, the last of whom was Boyd Comslock of Southern California, Sweden was ahead of the other European nations becnuse as early 1902 she engaged Ernest Iljcrl- so likewise nations like Germany figured we had something that helped our men when they got Into a fight. They believed these fighting qualities were partly engendered by our 6|x>rts. This is very Interesting, stresses Major Griffith, because today there are still some who would discard our sports and games. ATHENS. N.
