SIXTEEN .-MASON. CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 11 · 1937 GAZETTE S Garden Loses Old Hold on Fistania CHICAGO BATTLE FOR TITLE LAST STRAW OF HEAP Tex Rickard Would Gasp at Antics of New : Powers in Mitt Promotion. (What's TiehUid . the current Ixeavy- welght flslic"'furore? IVho's who "and ·why alnce^Tex Ulckard ruled t h e ~ b a ~ Y Inic business?. The answer to these and other questions arisliiS'from velopments In the science, or scrambled ears ivlll be found In a series of Associated Press stories/ dr which'' this U ihe flrst.X. " ' : ' . ' . . · ; ^ ; By; ALAN GOULD - N E W ; YORK, , If?) -- Nothing could 'reveal 'more strikingly the shift- in heavyweight fistiana's "balance ot power" that the present setup for the Jim Braddock- Jqe Louis "title match in Chicago, with the Madison Square garden corporation oh'the outside, for the first time since the late George Lewis (Tex) Hickard interested Wall; "street "-in""pugilistic' play? things. .'..". . , ' . - . . ; ' The garden still has the privilege of tossing a few legal punches in behalf o£ its contract for Braddock to fight Max Schmeling for the title in New York June 3. The garden's chief executive, John Heed Kilpatrick, an old Yale Blue, insists he will fight to the finish to stop the Chicago match. Meantime, and despite the novel efforts of Schmeling himself to promote a title fight with Braddock this year in Berlin, .the multiple interests .backing the Chicago bout are going right ahead because (a) they have the inside track, and (b) they know they have ..the biggest heavyweight ihoriey-malter available. : Garden Loses Hold. All of which, my -dear Watson, means that Madison Square garden, having already lost Hickard, most of the original ."600 millionaires," and much of its.old fistic prestige, now seemingly has lost its exclusive hold on the heavyweight industry, including the titleholder. That is significant along -Cauliflower alley, even thought it hardly calls for an amendment to the constitution. The .blow is more severe to the garden's pride than to its balance sheet.' ; The heavyweight title has been more of a gold-brick than a gold mine since Rickard died in 1929. Pugilism, undermined by racketeers, was on the skids, as a matter o f . fact, before the celebrated Wall street crack-up took the financiers' minds off their fis- tic hobby. Boxing nowadays comprises less than five per cent of the garden's financial operations, due not alone to the decline of its fistic interests, but also to a policy of building up prestige in other spheres of sport. "NuHiin' Like It." The great Rickard, nevertheless, would have "seed nuthin' like it," if he could return to find his .'successors holding an apparently worthless contract lor. the next heavyweight title fight, while rivals- go forward defiantly with arrangements for a championship match in Chicago, scene of Tex's greatest extravaganza in/ 1927. During his ' promotion career, ranging from the Jeffries-Johnson fight at Reno in 1910 to the Shar- key-Strib!ing bout at Miami Beach in 1929, which he did-not live to see, Rickard never lost control of the heavyweight situation. Tha twin answers to the Garden's present plight comprise (A) failure to prevent rivals from getting control of the central figure in heavyweight boxing's recovery, Joe Louis, and (B) the decision of Champion Braddock to "run out" on his signed agreement to fight first under Garden auspices in defense of the title. The pretense that the Chicago fight does -not. provide for the championship ' being at .stake' is sheer hokum, even though it may serve the purpose of a legal loophole. Jacobs Beats Garden. The Garden tried hard to land the . "eastern rights" to Louis in 1935. The Brown Bomber, already a sensation in the middlewest, was lined .up with the Chicago stadium, which manifested reluctance to enter a working agreement with the Garden. While the dickering was in progress, Michael Strauss Jacobs, Broadway ticket broker and one-time ally of Rickard, executed a flank movement and plucked Louis off the fistic plum iree. Whether at fault or not, the Garden was left out on the limb, with Louis under contract to Jacobs and company until 1940.- Three months after the Garden barely made expenses with 'the Braddock-Baer title go, Jacobs built the Louis-Baer fight into the first; million dollar match of the post depression era. In 1936, the Garden was "shut out" completely with the Jacobs' syndicate promoting the year's big match, Schmeling-Louis, and the original plans lor a Braddock-Schmeling match in September collapsing. Pioneer LeaoVs to Serve Another Year GRINNELL, (/P)--Hal Dean of Mitchell, S. Dak., a guard, arid James Lamasney of Rockford, 111., a.forward, were re-elected co- captains of the Grinnell. college basketball for the' 1037-38 season Wednesday night. OUT of the PRESSBOX -By Al Mitchell"WE OUGHT TO MAKE SOMETHING . . . Looking at 91 Iowa, huskies: "If we had this material at Miami university, we would say it was pretty good," says Irl Tubbs new Iowa football coach . . . "but here in the Big Ten I don't know now it compares, with .the rest of the schopls. In comparison to Minnesota it might be only mediocre while against some other conference squad our material might be good." 'Pat Boland . . . new line tutor . . . says: "Well, there are 91 men out and we ought to make something out of them." ' Referring to the freshmen who will be eligible for varsity competition next fall... . . Tubbs says . . . "as always is the case when there is a change in coaching personnel at a school 'the freshman squad is always the best we've ever had.'
