Joe Louis' manager, John Roxborough, added a new objection Saturday night to the controversy over the site for the proposed Jim Braddock-Louis heavyweight title bout this summer. With Joe Gould. Braddock's manager, insisting the fight must be held at Soldier Field, Chicago, instead of Comisky park, Roxborough stepped up and demanded the bout be taken from Chicago altogether and moved to Louis' home town, Detroit. "And Joe will fight Braddock in Detroit, or there'll be no fight," Roxborough declared. Gould, who earlier had called off his trip to Chicago Monday, and thereby abandoned plans to sign for the fight at that time, was surprised at Roxborough's outburst. "This is the first I've heard of that angle," he said. "All I know is that Jack Kearns (Detroit promoter) offered Jim and me ,600,-000 last week to fight Louis in Detroit I told him I couldnt dicker with him as long as the negotiations were going on in Chi-rcago. And they're still on." Promoter Mike Jacobs, who has Louis under contract, was unavailable for comment on the latest turn of affairs. He has indicated he would like the fight in Com-iskey park in Chicago, but this afternoon, after hearing Gould's ultimatum demanding Soldier field, he intimated he probably would go along with the request of the Braddock camp. Fans on Ropes, Roxbo rough's statement came after a conference .with Kearns and Detroit officials. Under present plans, the fight. If held there, would-be staged at 20 rounds In Is'avin field, late in June. . These fast breaking angles had everyone hanging on the ropes and left the principals about as close together as Delhi, India, and Win-field, Kas. There will be no signing of contracts for the fight, in Chicago Monday as first announced. And there may never be any Chicago (Continued on Page 6-A, CoL 2.)

The famed Waners of the Pittsburgh Pirates faced competition for their base ball brother act. Floyd "Arky" Vaughan, star shortstop, obtained permission from the Pirate management to take his 18 year old brother, Glenn, to training camp at San Bernardino, Calif., next month. The younger Vaughan, who plays second base, is a switch hitter and batted .472 for the Ful lerton (Calif.) high school team last year. Arky took an older brother to camp four years ago, but he failed to win a place. Paul Waner, National league batting champion, has paired with his brother in the Pirate outfield for more than a decade.

Glenn's tine was a disappointment, by comparison with his 4:11.9 at Boston on a slower track a week ago, but "the Kansan ran to win, re gardless of pace setting tactics. Cunningham easily shook off Venzke on the back stretch of the last lap and won going away while a capacity crowd of 16,000 roared. Archie San RomanL black haired Emporia (Kas.) collegian, outfought Luh to win a thrilling stretch duel for third place by inches. The pair trailed Venzke by five yards.

Taking the lead in the first few (Continued on Pag 7-A. CoL 1.) ARRIVE LINCOLN MONDAY 1 A! LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7, Sam Francis Chapter I. Dating from his earliest memories, one burning desire has ruled the life of Harrison "Sam" Francis.. He wanted to become a great athlete, an All America football player, an Olympic games contestant. The story of how he achieved his goal is replete with evidences of long hours of practice, endless self denials and rigid self imposed training rules. Altho born at Dunbar, Neb., Sam was raised in Oberlin, Kas., a town of about 2,000, the seventh child of a family of 10 in which the girls are noted for their beauty, and the boys for their athletic ability. He received his secondary school education at the Decatur county high school in Oberlin, and altho he ranked above average scholastically, school and meals were all but unbearable interludes stolen from the hours which restless Sam'l spent kicking a football, tossing a basketball or putting a shot. When the last bite was gulped down or the last school bell rang, he was outdoors and at the games he loved. Which game he might indulge in at the moment varied by season or whim, but it was almost always one of football, basketball or track. "If our football happened to get run over by a passing car and none of us could think of a way to promote a new bladder for it, we stuffed it with rags, laced it up and the game went on," said Sam, in a reminiscent mood. Believes In Training. Kid-fashion, he took to heart all the athletic rules he ever heard mentioned. Any athletic minded youth does that, but the unusual thing about Sam was that he stuck to them. Oatmeal for breakfast was mandatory. He never drank coffee and never smokeddoes neither to this day. He heard that big time athletes carried rubber sponge balls which they constantly gripped to develop hands and forearms. So bam carried a sponge ball and exercised it diligently. He practically grew up with a football or basketball in his hands; carried one with him most of the time. For a long while he went to and from school and about the environs of Oberlin tossing an eight pound lead shot before him, picking it up and tossing it on; Intrasquad Meet Saturday With Opening Season 2 Weeks Away. Warming up for the opening of the indoor season two weeks hence, Coach Schulte's Nebraska U. track squad topped off several weeks of light drills with the initial intrasquad meet Saturday afternoon. The Huskers open the indoor campaign Feb. 20 against Kansas university in Memorial siaaium. The meet, originally scheduled for Feb. 13, was postponed a week, Schulte announced. A 53.7 seends clocking in the quarter mile by Bob Morris topped the performances, as Bill Giah, Be- atric sophomore, won botn me hurdles. Bob Neumann, another sophomore, took the pole vault at 12 feet 2. Monday afternoon the first of the annual Tri-Color meets for freshmen and non-varsitypr form ers will be held.

CHASED ACROSS A STAGE AS A COLORED CHARACTER CALLED BLACK SAM' - SAM'S LIFE STORY. Preteiiting the first chapter In the life story of a young man Harrison "Sam" Francis who hitched his athletic wagon to a star and rode it thru to achieve those dreamt of a barefoot boy. He wanted to be an All America football player and he wanted to represent Uncle Sam In the Olympic games. They say If you want anything enough to make the sacrifices and put it the hours of labor preparing yourr'f, you'll eventually get It. Th! tory of Sam's early years in a small Kansas town, lonrt before he'd grown too old to dream, shows that he wanted to make his dreams come true so badly that he built up the stamina that afterward brought him the nickname of Tireless Sam as he plowed and punted his way to fame on the gridiron as Nebraska's fullback. And more glory when he led the American contingent of shot putters in the Olympic game. It's an inspiring saga for those lads who are dreaming their own dreams of future athletic con-qests, and an entertaining biography for those" who have been forced to become "armchair athletes." The second installment will appear In next Sunday's Journal and Star. following it about as a golfer follows a golf ball. Having heard that the weaker sex oftimes exercised a bad influence upon athletes, Sam was something of a woman hater until his senior year in high school. What were women good for anyway? reasoned Sam. They didn't play football or put the shot. Besides, his training rules set 9 o'clock as the bedtime deadline for athletes. This wasn't a hard rule to follow, for, next to athletics and movies, Sam likes best to sleep. He has always found getting up in the morning something- of a problem and admits, "I have plenty of trouble making 8 o'clock classes."

FOURTEEN .the greatest all'round athletes in Kansas, he overcame his distaste for women and his timidity in their presence and "ran around a little." Secretly he wanted to be in the class plays, but at the time was pretty Bhy about those things and contrived to escape. Decatur county high school officials say that in school Sam was quiet and stood out only in athletics. A rather unsocial attitude covered hLs natural diffidence and was apparent until one became better acquainted with him when it could be recognized as a protective shield. This handicap has been completely overcome in one of the greatest developments of his college career. On at least two occasions Sam's intense interest in things athletic carried him into difficulties; one humorous and one serious. On a fine spring day when he was in grade school, a schoolmate and he I decided it would be more desirable i to build a trapeze in an empty barn loft than to spend the day in a Btuffy classroom. So that's what they did. A conference between the respective parents and the teacher resulted in a "guilty" verdict and disciplinary measures for the breach of conduct were recommended. Severe Punishment. Upshot of the affair was that Sam and his pal were led by the teacher to school every morning for three weeks, kept by her side all day and escorted to their homes by her each evening. Their parents then went on guard duty and kept the boys inside until schooltime the next morning. "That was tough," says Sam, "because we couldn't be' outdoors playing games." He still thinks the deed hardly merited such se vere punishment It was about this time that Har rison Francis acquired the nickname "Sam." A lefthander, he had been called "Lefty," "Hookarm" and 'Hook," but none of those names stuck with him long. That summer, however, a visiting show troupe hired him to run across the stage while pursued by a man carrying a knife. The show people billed him as "Black Sam" and smeared his face with burned cork for the act. Since then, and he says he likes it, he has been called Sam. (To be Continued next Week.) . INSON WILL I E Solem Completes Staff of 'All-Minnesota' Aides With Selection. SYRACUSE, N. T. VP). Syracuse university completed an "all Minnesota" coaching staff Saturday, Head Coach Ossie M. Solem, who bumped 'em around for Minnesota back In 1915, picked the last of his aides, naming Charles "Bud" Wilkinson, quarterback on last year's Minnesdta varsity. Before that he selected William "BUI" Boelter, chief backfield assistant to Solem for eight years at Drake and Iowa, and Clarence Munn, former Minnesota All America guard. Munn comes to Syracuse from Albright college, where he was head coach for two seasons. ' Boelter learned his football from Solem. Wilkinson, last named to the staff, was a performer on Minnesota's crack elevens of the past three years during which the Gophers lost only one game. He played tackle and guard for two years and last fall was put in as quarterback and promptly stood out as a blocker, pass receiver and defense man. ; " , --V. ' :' BULLS YIELD TO BOXERS.
