VAMOUS IN NIW INOLAND »o» «o riAftii I UiWINO CO. V/ILUMANStTT, MASS. Louis Wavering On Comeback Stand (By United Press) Retired heavyweight champion Joe Louis seems to be wavering in his idea of never making a comeback to try to regain the crown he ;ave up last year. Louis who is training in Chicago for a 10-round exhibition next week with Pat Valentino indicated this by saying It all depends on how he makes out against the San Francisco heavyweight. "There's no sense in talking about coming back to fighting until after this fight," says Louis. "I got to wait to see how I do against this guy before I think of fighting Ez- zurd Charles. If I can't knock him out before the eighth round," reasoned the Brown Bomber, "or at least outpoint him that far there would be no point in thinking about a heavyweight title bout." Charles, who won the N-B-A crown by beating Joe Walcotot when Louis retired, was being out- pointed b y Valentino before he kayoed the West coast hope in the eighth round last September. Louis will meet Valentino over 10- rounds, with 10-ounce gloves, next Wednesday at Chicago.
