PAGE TWELVE THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20, 1939. Joe Louis, Bob Pastor Set to Go Bout Will Be Allowed to Go 20 Rounds if Necessary (By GAYLE DETROIT, Sept. 20.— </P>— After a lapse of nearly three years, Champion Joe Louis tonight resumes his chase after the little imp who once eluded him and injured his pride. He and Bob Pastor meet at Briggs stadium, home of the Detroit Tigers, before, a crowd that is expected to reach the 40,000 mark, and this time the feeling is that the big Negro will catch and pulverize his quarry. This time he will have 20 rounds in which to corner his man, instead of the 10 they fought in Madison Square Garden before Louis became champion. He will have an advantage of about 15 pounds In weight, and he is a greater fighter In every respect than he was when free-wheeling Bob held him to a hollow decision. Louis has been angry at Pastor for nearly three years. He has felt all that time "that Louis Vs. Pastor DETROIT, Sept. 20.—(/P)—The tale of the tape on Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis and Challenger Bob Pastor in their title bout tonight: LOUIS 25 years 200 pounds 6 ft., 1% in. 76 inches 41 inches 44 inches 16'/ 2 inches 34 inches 14 inches 12 inches 8 inches 11% inches 22 inches 15 inches 10 inches Age Weight Height Reach Chest (normal) Chest (expanded) Neck Waist Biceps Forearm Wrist Fist Thigh Calf Ankle PASTOR 25 years 1>87 pounds 5 ft., lli/ 2 i n . 76 inches 43 inches 47 inches 171/2 inches 34 inches 15 inches 12 inches 7% inches 13 inches 21 inches 16 inches 10 inches Decide Southpaws Could Stop New York Yankees push them a notch deeper in fourth place. Chicago Wins That push was aided by the Chicago Cubs' 3-2 decision over the New York Giants, gained chiefly through Hank Leiber's homer, a wild pitch by Harry G-umbert that put the deciding • run on base and another effec- I tive relief trick by Charley Root. j In the other national league engagement, Paul Waner's triple and single ran his consecutive- game batting streak to 20 games, moved him into second place in 1 the league hitting parade, and helped the Pittsburgh Pirates down the Boston Bees, 5-3. The champion Yankees notched their 100th victory, 6-2. over the Chicago White Sox, to top American league activities. The second-place Boston Red Sox improved their claim by beating the St. Louis Browns, 6-2. The Washington Senators I nosed out the Cleveland Indians, 10-9, despite an Indian triple play. The Detroit Tigers whipped the Athletics, 8-4, with the aid of Hank Grcenberg's 30th homer. BOXING To Be Broadcast The Joe Louis-Bob Pastor heavyweight championship bout at Detroit will be broadcast over the WJZ- NBC network at 9:30 o'clock this evening. the New Yo.-k boy made a sucker out of him, and he has yearned to get Bob in the ring with him again. He has worried his managers and Promoter Mike Jacobs half to death about it. And tonight, before the home folks, he finally gets his chance to close out that account. He fully intends to knock Pastor kicking In the first round. Bookmakers around town are offering odds of 7 to 1 against Pastor's chances, and doing practically no business at all. Pastor does have a chance, of course. He is young, is an exceptionally clever boxer and hits pretty well. Tuesday night, sitting around the hotel and talking, he said he thought he might knock Louis out. His manager, Jimmy Johnston, said it was a cinch. "All right, you wise guys," Johnston said, "just remember that I told you what was going to happen to this great champion. Louis has been trapped ever since he agreed to fight up 20 rounds. He'll be worn out about half way, and then watch Bob work on him." It could happen, one supposes. After all, Jim Braddock was even a longer shot against Max Baer. Tony Galento was generally felt to be a set-up for Lou Nova last week In Philadelphia. Nothing is certain in boxing, particularly since fighters have their "on" nights and their "off" nights. But it is necessary to string along with Louis, in" about two rounds. He hits terribly hard. Just how hard he hits a man Realized anew the other night when we saw Galento take everything Nova had for 14 rounds without being greatly Inconvenienced. It took only about a dozen of Louis' blows to make a wreck of Tony .The way Joe feels, he should hit Pastor this time. Perhaps he will get to him as quickly as he did to Max Schmeling, against whom he harbored a similar cold rage. Pastor's hope lies in his ability to start fast and keep clear of Joe's fists for dear life until such time as joe tires a little or perhaps becomes discourag- ?£' * T £ er t is a lot of feeling that If Pastor survives 10 rounds he will have a chance to win, because he really is a fine boxer. Pastor obviously has trained i • I ? se 4L for a lon S fi ght. Since last Thursday he hasn't had the gloves on, but has only taken light exercise and stored "P his energy. Louis went at it hard right up to Tuesday. He doesn t intend to muff this one. By BILL BONI , (Associated Press Sports Writer) | The accepted theory among i big league managers in recent i years has been that the best bet< for stopping the New York Yankees is to feed them left- •. handers. i This theory has a certain) amount of justification in thei records. Since the Cincinnati' Reds already are accepting ticket orders for next month's, World series, it also must have entered the mind of Manager Bill McKechnie. But how rong it .stayed there is something else again. When it comes to effective southpaws, Manager Bill is about as well- equipped as Poland is with submarines. He tried to get by with one again Tuesday, and the results were sad indeed. McKechnie called on Johnny vander Meer to face the Phillies, but double- no-hit didn't face them long. He pitched to three men and filled the bases, threw three bad ones at the next batter and promptly was through for the afternoon. Lost Game, 13-1 So weTe the Reds. They never did get out of that hole, lost the ball game, 13-1, and since the St. Louis Cardinals turned back the Brooklyn Dodgers, 6-1, had their first-place margin reduced to two and a half games. The Cincinnati southpaw situation is a sorry one. Since Aug. 9, Vander Meer has been entrusted with a starting assignment only twice. McKechnie had so little faith in him Tuesday he had Johnnv. Niggeling warming up in the bull pen a-s as soon as Vander Meer started. Lefty Lee Grissom hasn't been any help, either. Grissom hasn't started a game in a month when the pressure on the Reds was heaviest. McKechnie has two further worries. His inner defenses are shot full of holes—seventeen errors in the last five games— and the patting punches i.s nothing to brag about. Against the Phillies' Walt Higbe, the Redlcgs made just six hits. The Cards got fine pitching Tuesday from an unexpected :nurce. Max Lanier, rookie southpaw who has been up before, gave Brooklyn five hits, while his mates pounded out 14 safeties to break the Dodgers' five-game winning streak and (Ky THK ASSOCIATKD PKKSS) NEW YORK -Tony Canzoncri, 143:'., Now York, former lightweight chniii- | plon. outpointed Irish Edctlc Brink 144.

Coach Crisler Lives Up to Reputation of Being a Hard Driver ANN ARBOR, Sept. 20.—(/P)— A weary, battered Michigan football squad faced the prospect of more rough-and-tumble work today as Coach Fritz Crisler ordered another strenuous double-barrelled drill. Crisler, who acquired a reputation as a taskmaster during coaching stopovers at Minnesota and Princeton before coming here last year, has been driving his squad at a furious pace. Old-timers say this fall's practice sessions are the stiffest they have ever seen. For the last eight days scrimmage has been as regular a diet. __ Tnc __ Michigan coach threat- ened demotions for candidates found guilty of slipshod play and at one time during Tuesday's session he halted play, and asked individuals whether they liked to block and tackle. "If you don't, say so." he snapped, "and I'll find someone who will." Crisler found something to cheer about, however, in the offensive showing of Halfbacks Tom Harmon and Paul Kromer and Fullback Bob Westfall who marched 95 yards for a touchdown in six plays against the reserves. Hercules Renda, diminutive halfback, became the fifth casualty in two days, suffering a charlcyhorse when he was tackled hard by WesTfall.
