MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 8 1935 THIRTEEN Out of The PRESSBOX Bj AL MITCHELL ---THIS JS ONK OF THOSE This is one of those fish storiet which nobody ever believes, and j which, often as. not,. IS just a fish I story, writes Betty Cass, who views / "Madison Day by Day" in her col- I umn, published in the Wisconsin su ». State Journal. But, says Betty, the .tov P r ' nc 'P a ' s n t fle case are a " willing . 1 to furnish affidavits . . . so ... yea » * * V At any rale . . . she £oes on . . . caJ it was about two weeks ago that jj/ Edwin "Toad" Crofoot visited in \ r.laclison. The former Mason Cityan. '*[: who captained one of Glenn Thistle/' thwaite's Badger football teams af- W ter his prep school days here, is now working for one B. E. Buckman in Texas. While he was vacationing in Madison, two of the local sentry, "Buck" and Lou George, decided to take "Toad" fishing. I rerhaps "Toad" isn't much of a j fisherman, for he had no equipment. j so "Buck" loaned him a rod and i reel and line and the rest of the j necessary gadgets, and Lou showed j him how to bait the hooks and how r to cast and everything went along S beautifully until "Toad" caught his I first fish, a five-pound pike, and · pulled it in. Then he became so ex. cited while he was taking it off the , : hook that in Some way he knocked ' the rod and reel out of the boat and ; . they sank to the bottom immedia- :, tely. ; # * * "Toad" was completely crestfallen of course, and practically speechless with remorse. "Oh, just pull on the line," Lou told him. "The other end of it will be lied to the reel and you can pull it in that way," * A * So "Toad" pulled on (he line . . . and pulled and pulled and pulled . . . until he had a nice pile of wet line in the bottom of the boat. . but, unfortunately, the other end of the line WASN'T tied to the reel and pretty soon the last yard of it unwound from the reel and came up limp and empty. * * * s . "Tond" felt pretty bad about loss ing "Buck's" rod and reel, of \ course, and apologized in great em- . barrassment. Then he began to fish \ with the line which he had pulled .' off the reel, holding the end in one ·, hand and casting it, or throwing it ! out, with the other hana\ And sud- · denly, just like that.' the line was \ gone, too . . . slipping through his .·· fingers as he threw the end and .' sinking out of sight in the water be,' fore he could stoop to catch it. , * * . [; Now completely flustered and i chagrined, he rushed away as soon as possible, went into the nearest town, and bought a new outfit for "Buck." The next day they all went fishing again and "Buck" told "Toad" to use the new rod and reel which he had bought . . . But to just hang on i to it a little more tightly. A few f minutes later, then, when "Toad" felt a sharp tug on his line, he hung \ on to the rod for all be was worth v and pulled . . . and pulled. / 1 "Gosh, he must be a whopper!" someone exclaimed. ''Look at the 'i way your pole is bent!" And it did seem to be a "whopper," and "Toad" i became very excited, but he remembered to hang on to his line . . . and i pull hard and reel in cautiously. i'' r ! And what do you suppose was on ' liiis hook when he finally got it up? i "Oh, migawsh!" did I hear some- lone groan?

By PAUL MICKELSON CHICAGO, Aug. 8. (7P)--King Levinsky hunted up his haunts along Maxwell street today and asked for the current wholesale quotations on fish. His once booming voice was stilled to a whisper. His wide, cooksure grin was gone. The ol' fish peddler was definitely through as a contender for the world's heavyweight boxing championship, blasted from the big puddle by the brown bomber from Detroit, Joe Lewis. It was little fish for the big Kingfish. Six Blows Tell Story. Six of his copyrighted punches and two minutes and 21 seconds of firing--a minute and 32 seconds less than Max Baer needed to do the same thing last December--were all that the 21 year old Negro heavy- BAER IS NEXT. CHICAGO. Aug. S. (.-B--Max Baer, former heavyweight champion, and Joe Louis, sensational Detroit Negro, today were matched by Promoter Mike Jacobs of New York to fight on Sept. 26 or 27 at either New York or Chicago. Ancil Hoffman, manager of the former champion, signed for Baer. Co-Manager John Roxborough signed for Louis, who won his twenty-fourth consecutive fight last night by stopping 1 Kiing Levinsky. Hoffman, who watched Louis continue his victory march last night, saifl Baer was already in training in the east and that his hands were in good condition. weight sensation required to drape the hulking, battered form of the Kingfish on the ring ropes at Comiskey park, home of the White Sox last night. To the utter amazement of the vast throng of 39,195 spectators, the Kingfish was hooked, chilled and pleading to Referee Norman McGarrity for mercy almost before they had settled in their seats. Something to See. There were a few hoots from those who called the once glorious fish peddler "yellow" because he never appeared to try, but what the iing took and saw probably would bave scared many a fighting man into retreat. Louis, a cool, deliberate killer with' dynamite in each fist, measured his retreating foe for a few fleeting seconds and then pumped his deadly blows to the bead and body, getting only one : I NATIONAL I .

Three times the Kingfish was just battered to the canvas, but he stumbled to his sagging feet each time until the brown bomber ripped two vicious left hooks to the body that sent him down -to stay. A pitiful figure, dazed and forlorn, he squatted on the bottom rope, unable to move his paralyzed legs. Don't Let Him Hit Me. 'Don't let him hit me again, don't let him," he pleaded with the referee. "I'm through." As the statuesque Negro stood in his corner, receiving a tumultous ovation from the crowd, Referee McGarrity and Levinsky's handlers helped the fallen Kingfish to his corner, where his manager, Harold Steinman, stood with blank amazement written over his face. He had trained his fighter for almost a month and had him down to his best fighting weight, 197%, or % of a pound less than Louis. Levinsky hadn't lasted a round, suffering his worst defeat in what was known to be his last stand. Louis and his managers, elated over the result and the crowd that paid $192,906.50 to see the "Levinsky massacre," immediately went into huddles with three groups, who seek to match Louis, winner of 24 straight fights since he turned professional a little more than a year ago, against Baer in September. Anxious to Battle. Louis, winner of 20 of his 24 fights by knockouts and whose foes have averaged 4.5 rounds against him. said he was anxious to meet Baer "I hope Mr. Baer now will fight me." he said without a change in expression. "Levinsky only hit one punch and that never hurt me." "My advice to Baer is to duck," Levinsky said later. "Say, that guy Louis can hit harder than Baer." Fifty per cent of the net receipts went to the ughters. Louis received 30 per cent, or $47,061,81 and Levinsky 20 per cent or $31,374.55, a tidy sum for less than two minutes work. The quick finish caught wire and press services unprepared, especial ly since the main bout was set up i to the opening spot of the card, be- 1 cauE-: of a threat ot' rain.

Seven other tournament winners from different sections of the state will also appear at the state fair, and the teams will meet in a state championship tournament. 4--All expenses of the winning team from Mason City will be paid at the state fair, including housing, meals, baseballs, umpires and trophies. 5--The winner of the state fair tournament will get more than S200 in expense money, which is to be used to take the club to Dayton, Ohio, for the national amateur baseball tournament. NO EXPENSE MONEY WILL BE PROVIDED for teams coming to the Mason City tournament, since distances will be short. Each team is limited to 16 players, including the manager, if he plays. The winning team at Mason City may select an extra pitcher for the state tournament, but he must come either from the league which the team played in or from the North Iowa tournament pitchers. Eligibility rules are as follows: 1. No player may receive either directly or indirectly any remuneration for his participation. 2. A player cannot also be a member of a team enrolled under organized professional baseball. 3. A player is not eligible to play if he has been given monetary consideration or promise thereof after July, 1935. A. Any club paying, or player accepting, remuneration for playing baseball shall, upon conviction, be forever disbarred from any affiliation whatsoever with the American Baseball congress, or any subsidiary association. 5. No player shall be eligible unless he shall have appeared on the roster of that individual team by July 10. 1935, and shall have participated in at least three games during the regular season. N O T E : UNDER T H E S E R U L E S ALL-STAR TEAMS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE. A TEAM MUST HAVE BEEN PLAYING TOGETHER BEFORE JULY 10 AND NO PLAYERS MAY BE ADDED AFTER THAT.

RAPIDS GOES UP IN BETTER SPOT Raiders Win as Demons Take Day of Rest, Move Into Fifth Place in Loop. DES MOINES, Aug. g. LT)--Cedar Rapids occupied fifth position in the Western league today, replacing "the idle Demons by lacing out a 12 to 4 victory over St. Joseph last night. Returning home from an extended road trip, the Raiders loosed a 14 hit barrage on King and Smith and collected five runs, enough for victory, in the first inning alone. Both the league leading Blue Sox from Davenport and second place Council Bluffs Rails went down to crushing defeats in opening games of new scries. Sioux City took the m«.sure of the Blue Sox by a 6 to 0 score, with burly Kemp dazzling the topnotcH- ers with his six hit pitching. The Rails, reopening competition after three days of vacatioin, found the last place Indians on the warpath and fell under a. 10 to 4 count. Al Liska, who had pitched seven straight victories, saw his record crumble when Keokuk knocked him out of the box with six runs in the sixth inning. Charles City-Elma Tussle to Be Played on Tuesday CHARLES CITY, Aug. 8.--The Charles City-Elma Legion Junior baseball game which was protested by Calvin Jones, manager of the Charles City team, will probably be replayed Tuesday evening either on the New Hampton or Osage diamond. The local team has defeated the Elma team three successive times prior to last Sunday's game, which was protested because of ground management. Mr. Jones stated the Elma team was in no way responsible for a disturbance which was the cause for protest.
