Decision to Continue Sport Comes as Squad Intensifies Practice SCX>TTVILLE, Sept. 13.—Scottville high school gridders, definitely assured of a continuation of football at their school, swing into high speed today in prepar- fltlon for the opening of the Schedule on Sept. 22, the Spartans on that date being slated to go to Shelby for a Western Michigan 'conference game. , Although the Spartan warriors have been practicing for several days, it was not definitely certain that football could be played at Scottville this year. The Scottville school board, faced with overwhelming problems, chiefly a lack of a playing field and a lack of interest, studied the situation diligently before deciding at a meeting Tuesday evening that the sport was to be continued. New equipment is needed by the team and will probably be furnished before beginning of hostilities. Scottville's biggest problem lies in its lack of a playing field. Although MacPhail field is available, it is top hard-surfaced for a gridiron and, although Scottville anticipates a newly-topped field fpr ; 1940, this year's games may all be played on the road. Three. home games are scheduled, However, arid exact location Of the garnes will be decided later.

Joe Louis Has No Set Plan for Pastor Bout DETROIT, Sept. 13.— (IP)— Anything can happen in a fight, be it in a ring or an alley, and because of this Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis will not attempt to execute any set plan when he defends his largest turnout in several years, i title against Bob Pastor, of haVe reported for gridiron duty, i New York, at Briggs stadium here one week from tonight. Furthermore, Trainer Jack Blackburn said, Louis has never attempted to map his strategy in advance for any bout. "He's going to fight Pastor just like he fought the rest of 'em," said Blackburn today, adding that Brown Bomber's technique "is good enough for me." The usual Louis style, Blackburn said, is to try to create an opening and then let go with his Sunday punch. John Roxborough, co-manager of the champion, stepped in to say that he has been are turning out for practice, | irked no end by reports that some 'of them lads who worked out last year but were not for- Of this number, ten have already wo'n letters, giving Coach John DeHofn a fine group around which' to mold his team.

By contrast Pastor, a former football player, has spent hours studying motion, pictures, of Louis in action and admits that he has his battle plans mapped just like the generals who are running the European war. He has indicated that he intends to keep moving at top speed just as long as he can, jabbing to the head until Louis is ripe for a shot to the body. "Louis has never been hit in the stomach and I am going to try it," Pastor says. the State Boxing commission.

"Joe always has and always will end his mouts just as quickly as he can," Roxborough declared. "He is the champion and why should ,he carry anyone? After all almost any heavyweight can hit hard and the championship is too valuable to risk for the purpose of making an opponent look good or giving the spectators a few extra rounds of fighting." According to Roxborough, Louis waited until he straightened Galento up before trying for a knockout. "Tony was in a crouch at the start," Roxborough said, "and Joe knew that he could break a hand if he landed on AMERICAN LEAGUE W.

Louis got a day of rest after a passive performance against four sparring partners Tuesday that saw the champion on the receiving end of plenty of left stabs. He made his best showing in the first round against "Ace" Martin, a Lansing light-heavyweight who was in retreat after the first 30 seconds. Fred Brown, trainer of Pastor, has eliminated the six miles of running each morning because he believes his charge is in danger of going "stale." Pastor now walks the six miles.
