MARCH 1. 1934. 5k 23 - fw If IN GOLDEN GLOVES FINALS SHOWERS HALT CAM Fl UNTIL TONIGHT THE GUMPS THE LETTER THAT NEVER WAS MAILED Loughran Fans Still Sure of Victory. BY HARVEY WOODRUFF. Chicago Tribune Press Service. Miami, Fla., Feb. 28. Kain of an intensity matching the blizzards raging through the north caused postponement until tomorrow night of the Camera- Lou ra n heavyweight championship battle. Such was the downpour that announcement was made at 10 o'clock this morning. Government forecast for the next 24 hours is continuing winds, which usually bring showers, and probably rain tonight. Jimmy Johnson, optimistic representative of Madison Square Garden, issued a weather report of his own. It was " fair and warmer." Jimmy, however, has lost some reputation as a weather oracle after this same forecast for the last three days. Spectators Aren't Sufficient, Naturally, the clouds still hovering and flurries of rain even after the big storm ended, sjectators, of whom there is areat need to make the affair a success, withstood any temptation to buy tickets until the weather cleared. However applications for refunds for tickets already purchased was negligible, so the advance sale remained around the $::5,000 mark. Whatever the number of paying customers, this bout will be attended by the greatest number of newspaper men ever assembled outside of Chicago, New York, or Philadelphia. Francis Albertanti, director of press arrangements, has assigned locations to 150 working writers. This is exclusive of " heels," as he picturesquely describes those seeking Annie Oakleys without proper credentials. , ;J Baseball Inspires It. This assembly of correspondents is due in large part to the fact that eleven major league baseball teams are training in Florida this spring, if there be spring. So all the baseball experts moved in with the fistic commentators to make the crowd. Camera took only light work today. As a result he weighed 21 pounds at the end of his exercises, three pounds heavier than yesterday. The painstaking Loughran indulged in his I usual training at West Palm Beach and remained there for the night instead of coming to Miami as originally scheduled The gladiators will weigh In before the state boxing commission tomorrow at 1 o'clock. Several Philadelphia sports writers, fanning at press headquarters, tried to find a parallel between this bout and that between John L. Sullivan and Jim Corbett at New Orleans in 1892. Then, as now, it was a champion against a master boxer, with the odds about 4 to 1 favoring strength over skill. It'ft tHaTerent Now. That about ends the similarity, how-W- Sullivan then was nearly 14 ars old, undoubtedly past his peak. dEe was not so much defeated by Cor-jttt as beaten by his own efforts in chasing the elusive upstart from San Francisco. Sullivan succumbed, exhausted more than knocked out, in 21 rounds. In the present bout Loughran Is the veteran. He is 31 years old, against Camera's 26. He has far more experience than had Corbett, but certainly not more confidence, than the young chap who just smiled and ridiculed John's glare, which had beaten other rivals before they put up their hands. After this argument had waged for some time one of the debaters asked the Philadelphian who had precipitated the discussion if he had picked his fellow townsman to win. "Well, no," baj'amswered. " The dope is the other way, but I still think Tommy has a great chance." The Italian may not be a great fighter, although the impression is growing that he will become one, but be is better now than at any previous appearance in this country. Pugilistically, he is not washed up. Neither is Loughran, for that matter. Neither belongs in the dissipating category, Loughran in particular being ft notably clean liver. Recall Schaaf Case. Within the last year Camera has knocked out Ernie Schaaf in ten rounds in New York. Schaaf died after the bout, but the origin of his injury was attributed to the beating he took from Max Baer in Chicago. In June Primo knocked out Jack Sharkey in six rounds for the title. Last October he outpointed Paulino Uzcudun in 15 rounds In Rome, the profits going to Italian charities at the suggestion of II Duce. Loughran was even busier than Camera last year. He won ten round decisions over King Levinsky, Walter Cobb, and Isidoro Gastanaga. Then he was outslugged by Johnny Risko in ten rounds in Chicago. " That was my most bitter blow in pugilism, . Tommy said the other day. " I won dered if I really was through as a topnotcher." But Loughran came back with a 15 round decision over Sharkey. That really earned him his present opportuntiy. Last November he added a ten round decision over the massive Ray Impellitiere in New York. That was his last battle until Hp MOST tERi-Y BELOVED - AS I SIT HERE.

CNrago rwi f-rvlatl Pasadena, Cal., Feb. L'8 Jimmy Dykes, who batted a mere .536 in the city aeries, has decided he can't wait until March 17 to get in competition with Cub pitchers. And since baseball competition can't be arranged before St. Patrick's day, Jimmy this afternoon joined with Al Simmons, his White. Sox teammate, in challenging Charl e y Root and Pat Ma-lone for a golf match. Root accepted the challenge with the provision that he could catch up with Malone, who is spending his day light hours doing road work. TTnder the present plan the match is to be played Friday afternoon at FllntrldKe Golf club. It is to ut : point, low ball and aggregate. Bribe Herman, who played Dyks aniJ Simmons yesterday, will supervise the money contest. ' Bar Babe Hcnnaaffi Herman probably would irmke a low-r scoring partner J"r Root, but the two White Hnx are hot after Cub pitchers jusrt as they wore in 129 and in 1933, and Babe specifically was barred from the match. So far Dykes and Simmons have enjoyed success In their meetings with Root and Malone, but those who have played golf with all four of the athletes think it possible that the American leaguers have overmatched themselves in stepping out of their characters as baseball players. Boot and Dykes are orthodox per formers who score in the seventies, but Malone and Simmons are flighty gents who cover the range from 80 to 100. Malone is a marvel with his long irons, but most days his woods have him flat on his back. Simmons drives with a spoon and does other things that pros never would tell him to do. Though Jimmy and Al are all steamed up over the prospects of meeting Root and Malone, they have not let the matter distract them from their surprising enthusiasm for base ball conditioning. Mates Arrive Saturday. While the pair, with Mule Haas, primarily are guided by their desire to put on great seasons for the Sox, there is a suspected fiendish phase in the eagerness with which they are working prior to the arriv: . of the regular squad, to which they had been assigned. It is suggested that the riotous trio is preparing to laugh and laugh at the physical anguish the regulars will suffer trying to catch up with them after their arrival Saturday morning. All three, for the third successive day, were the first to reach the CHARLEY GRIMM HAS PARTY; JUST ONE GUB ATTENDS 118 POI ND CLASS. Joe Minnerei, C. Y. O., Chicago. Troy Belini, Cleveland. O.

Charley Grimm, Cub manager, maintained open house in the club's practice field and among the last to Wrigley building offices yesterday and was prepared for an elaborate recep- leave it All the first squad pitchers speeded up considerably today, with several specializing on curve balls more extensively than they dared in the first two workouts. Manager Fonseca today gave special attention to Whit Wyatt and Phil Galllvan in attempting to get them to get the Jerkiness out of their deliveries. Fonseca is going to Insist that all his pitchers follow through with a sweeping motion. He contends that much of Ted Lyons' misfortune last year was caused when he developed a hitch in his delivery. Ted, always a great student of form, wouldn't believe he bad changed his style until Fonseca, near the end of the season, showed btafl moving pictures of himself. Snyder Must Shed Weight. The squad worked out today in the hottest weather Pasadena has enjoyed in three weeks, which was par ticularly good for several of the lads, notably Catcher Morgan Snyder, who ame to camp with a sub chest some thing like Shanty Hogan's. He needs to shed 15 or 20 pounds. Fonseca, Simmons, Dykes, and Haas appeared on a radio program tonight with a lios Angeles sports writer. Since Fonseca, Dykes and the sports writer are notoriously long winded. Simmons and Haas spent little time in writing their Bpeeches. Simmons said, "Hello, friends of radioland," and Haas, "Howdy, folks." Fonseca, Dykes, and the sports writer then fought It out for the other 14 minutes and 30 seconds. tlon of such athletes as will accompany him this evening on the Journey to the Catahna island training camp. Charley's socfal affair was almost a total flop. Only one athlete showed up to prove ' he was ready for the leap to the west coast. The individual was Benny Tate, former American league catcher, who fell into the Cub ranks during one of the many winter transactions. Two notables Grimm expected to greet were Kl Cuyler, now a league veteran, and Chuck Klein, who would still be a hapless Philly if his owners hadn't been tempted by a large Bllce of Chicago money. The two are sure to be on hand for a roundup planned for this morning. Coaches Corriden and Kelly also will appear. Others in the batch of nine players starting from here are already on hand, bar ring Don Conrads. the kid southpaw from Kewanee, 111. Leave at 8:45 o'clock Tonight. The Cub getaway will occur at 8:45 tonight from the Rock Island depot and for the next couple of days the athletes will have nothing to worry about except not being too late to cram themselves into the diner. They 11 arrive at Los Angeles Sunday morn ing, be Joined there by other members of the squad, and the entire flock then will be rushed down to the harbor to board the morning boat for the Island.

These 32 warriors will return to the Stadium ring on the night of March 9 when the championships will be decided and Chicago's team picked for the intercity clash against New York. The Cleveland Plain Dealer team went well out into the lead for the out of town team trophy honors. Six of the eight Cleveland boxers fought on toward the championship round. The Cleveland rooters were not particularly happy, however, for the pride of their team, Ray Sharkey, was beaten by Al NetUow of Detroit. Goldstein, Caserio Win. To offset the Cleveland challenge Chicago qualified eight hard punching and rip snorting color bearers. Most of them represented the Catholic Youth organization, although Trafton's gymnasium also held a strong hand for Chicago team trophy honors with its two qualifiers, who are Irving Goldstein and Fred Caserifo. Goldstein reached the semi-finals in the featherweight division. Caserio fought with his old time skill and whipped Michael de Kovic of the Opal A. A., also of Chicago, in the middleweight class. Caserio's short right to the chin floored De Kovic for an eight count In the first round. He outboxed his foe from then until the finish. Max Marek, fighting unattached from Notre Dame, scored the most sensational victory of the quarter final battles when he knocked out John Logan, Catholic Youth Organization heavyweight champion. In the second round. Marek, who was the Chicago 175 pound champion last year, punched harder than at any time during his amateur boxing career. He encountered one of the greatest amateur heavyweights in the country in Logan. Right to Stomach. Marek was outboxed by a slight margin in the first round. Early in the second round he slammed a right a punch that traveled with the force of a speeding express train Into Logan's stomach. Logan went down and stayed there for the full count. Cleveland's closest rivals for the out of town honors are Detroit and Peoria. The Free Press team from Detroit sent four battlers into the semi-final round. Three members of Peoria's team Keith Graves, Fred Tyus, and Aaron Wade also reached the same goal. The Grand Rapids Press qualified two battlers for the semi-final round.
