iJS«*j« JVV _ cs-i-rur f*A-Kr# · TWELVE MASON GITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 17 · 1937 BE-GAZETTE S BIG BATTLE SET TO CHANGE SITE Chicago Park Board Fails to Reach Agreement on .Use of Stadium. CHICAGO, (UP)--Shifting of the proposed title bout between James J. BratJdock and Joe Louis from Soldier field to Comiskey park appeared likely Wednesday when the Chicago park board failed to reach an agreement on whether to lease the huge stadium for the event. Chairman Joe Triner of the Illinois athletic commission was de- lermined to hnve the exact date and site settled to permit both fighters to sign Friday. If the park boai-d continues its delay, Triner may order the fight staged at Comiskey park over the objec- tjons of Joe Gould, the champion's manager. It was Gould's insistence the bout be held at Soldier field that prevented an earlier signing, Triner said. NATIE BROWN OOZES CONFIDENCE AT BOUT KANSAS CITY, ()--Joe Louis, well-known finishing artist, meets Natie Brown of. Washington in a 10-round bout here Wednesday. If the Brown Bomber fails to polish off his opponent in short order, Louis no longer will be considered a -finished artist. He'll only be finished. Bob Pastor, Louis' most recent ring foe, left the ring as unfinished business. Brown himself emerged on his own feet at the end of 10 rounds in a previous meeting in 1935 with the Bomber. If Brown declared he expected to be-knocked put, the opinion would be practically unanimous. Fans believe Louis has too much at stake not to turn in an early kayo. Despite this, Brown, a wily ringman With only two knockouts charged against him in nine years of campaigning, oozed confidence. So did his manager, Billy McCarney. "We won't make the mistake we did in the other Louis fight," McCarney declared. "Brown tried to carry the fight to Joe then, and was punched silly for his trouble, although he came through with his best showing in the eighth, ninth and " tenth. We'll out-maneuver Louts for 'two. or three rounds, then out-box him to the finish." New Codes Won't Cut Down Passes for Ace Arkansas Grid Squad FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., (£)-- New football regulations won't ground the Arkansas aerial squadron that zoomed to the 'southwestern championship last year, said Head Coach Fred Thomsen Wednesday. This pigskin pitching enthusiast said new wording of the forward pass rule to give more leeway for dcfendei-s would not cramp 'his style next fall. "I believe there will _be less disputes over successful passes in , 1937," said Thomsen; "but I certainly don't expect the opposition to bowl over by receivers and I'm confident officials will share my opinion."
