PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.)' COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1938 But Says He's Sucker For Left Hook 'Which Means Trouble BY HAKRV GRAYSO'N NEW YORK, Feb. 17. — What chance, If any, lias Nntlinn Mann nsainst Joe Louis over 15 rounds at Madison Square Garden. Feb. 23? Well, Hit' slurjy Italian from outside of New Haven at least has the chance that is putting him .In llic ring. Mann, who will he 23 tn Mny. is formidable enough lo prove whether 1/ouls Is still a good flghtcr. Willie Mann is goini; more Hum 10 rounds for the first time, he Is tlie type that comes again, ami 1 have an idea that his chance will Improve as Ihe battle rolls alonj— that Is If It dues roll along any great distance. As I see it, Mann's biggest danger is being kissed out <i>iiekly, of cut up and stopped before he can whit tie Louis down to his size. 1 don't like the scars about his eyes—one in the Icfl brow and the other on the right lid. Mann has been on the floor, but says that he hasn't been badly hurt since Sailor Jack Jacobs, a southpaw, dun his left list Into his body in an amateur bout five years ago. "Bow do you like Oml?" asked Jacobs. "How do YOU like Dial?" nsked Mann, wlieu he dropped Jacobs with a right-hand punch lo the chin In the following round. Maim .'-ppi'ars lo B« SurkiT Tor Left Hook There Is little doubt but that itfmm can Ink*: n .solid shot on Die whiskers, bu' Louis Is going lo hit him harder than he ever has been hit. Mann Is the crowding type, a vallirr accomplished brighter, and has n fast pair ol arjns and « flue short right hand punch to the head. H is with this right hand punch that lie hopes lo win the world heavyweight championship. Louis will tower ever Mann, who stands Just under 5 feet n Indies. Watching htm tn workouts with Johnny Winters, capable Negro heavyweight of I'ontlac, I got the Impression that Mann Is as big a sucker for a left hook ns !/>uis Is for a right hand. And anybody who ts a mark for a left hook Is In for a bad time when placet! In the same Inclosure with Louis.

Mann reveals that !t was Dutch Schtilt?. himself who first saw his possibilities as n candidate for the heavyweight championship. The Bronx beer baron was taking Uiliies ns quietly as possible at Stratford, near Bridgeport, in tlie summer of 1935. He dropped In to see Mann box Steve Carr at White City Stadium, whlcli Is situated outside of Haven. SctiuHz Never Got Around to Managing Mmui wns a light-heavyweight at the time anil was oul-simrred by Carr, but that didn't discourage SchuHz. He sent for tlin boy, and mirclmscd Ills contract from BUI Reynolds, the New Haven manager who brought lihn out. "I'm busy right now, but I'll give you more of mv time n little Idler," Schiilltt told Mann. "lie never got around to it," asserts Nathan, i Schnlte was shot to dentil in a Newark tavern a few weeks later. Marty Krompler, his lieutenant, was badlv wounded In a New York tiarber shot) two hours later. A blood transfusion by Mann suved Krompter's life when surgeons gave him only 24 hours to live. Krompler still Ls the manager of Mann, although the fighter ofllelal- ly Is represented by Jimmy DeAngelo and Billy Brown. But regardless of liis handlers, Natlran Mann Isn't exactly a pushover for Joe Louis or anyone else. USED CAR SALE I FREE IN GROCERIES Phillips Used Car Lot SATURDAY, FEB. 19th, 3 P.

And with a soaring demand, a lower price is now possible. It's the identical whisky which many thousands have enjoyed as "double value." For it's quality whisky from old Kentucky, and it's made the "Slow Mash" way that takes more time and more grain. Just think of getting extra-smooth tasting whisky like this at its "most saving"price since repeal.
