He knows that the 22 young men on Wednesday night's card, tho lacking professional skill, will provide a memorable show. Their desire guarantees it. Because in Golden Gloves, the participants are not motivated by promise of a paycheck. They are not urged on by professional managers who would cut them up like a cabbage salad. They are spurred only by their interest in, competition.

THERE IS A song that stresses that you have to have heart. And, of course, any man who reaches the pinnacle in any vocation has had the heart of a lion. Cowards and weaklings fall by the wayside, even without competition. They early are winnowed from the field of challengers. Sometimes even the contemplation of competition, in business or sport, is enough to make a contender throw in the towel.

But it is easier to have heart when there is a rich, concrete reward for your sacrifices. Many men would be willing to be knocked senseless by Heavyweight Champion Ingemar Johansson could they be assured of a wonderful pay day. Money could buy courage, false courage, for them. Yet it only is a unique breed of hero who will take punches to the nose, and to. the jaw, and to the body, merely for the sake of athletic competition it is a unique breed of hero who will indulge in a rough, bodily contact sport knowing that his only reward will be an amateur championship; who knows that defeat wili not -provide even the consolation of a few dollars.

THE YOUNG MEN who will exchange punches in Chicago Stadium on Wednesday night are engaging in sport for the sake of sport itself. When the bell clangs, it will not signal a pay day. For them, the bell will mean only that they must step out and prove themselves better than an opponent who may come from any corner of these United States. That opponent may be of a different color, or religion, or social or national background. But that will not matter.

All that will count will be the size of the opponent's heart. If his heart is bigger than his foe's, his punch can be weaker. See you there.
