But he went a lotiE way towor erasing the blot, upon his title who he knocked out Yoimfi.Strlblins I Cleveland a year later. Ti:c decision that favored Shar key in New York during the recei summer made Schmellne a man o mystery. What can, and what w he do? • • • Der Selilnger Is in a unique po sltion.

But nil vrei past their physical peak nnrt fnlle In the test. And, In Walker 11 appears Ma has a fight on his hnnds. The Mick won two world championships In lighter divisions. His career Is studded with stories 1 of stirring victories and blazing exhibition of red courage. - • • But WalVer, who has been frequently called "an overstuffed middleweight." comes into this nght an -old man. His career has been built up in other divisions. He is still n slashing fighter, but hardly can last much longer. A victory for the popular and uell-ltkcd Mickey would leave the heavyweight division without a great champion. • ,« • For Schmellng the picture Is different. By beating Walker. In a furious battle, he could establish hlm- Fclf as one of {he most, formidable fighters in .the world. He couW erase the memory of that dumb Schmeling who fought Sharkey. -Ho could cash in on the popularity thai tlM decision in the Sharkey aftalr aroused. . • If he seizes the opportunity thlr fight presents, he will give Walkci the worst shellacking the Mick hat received'since Hurry.

The German wou!d become a conqueror and n search foi somebody .who could lick, him would begin; Sbarkey. already in the shadow of the strange New York d:- cision, would be, thereby, a defensive champion. It would be up to Sharkey tr meet the German. And what tlien? : (THE END) '• WEDNIS'SDAY. SEPTEMBER 21. 1032 IIEIJMIB Cuylor Drives in Winning Run; Weaver, Nat Ace, Wins 22nd. American league W. L.
