THE DAILY COURIER; CONNELLSVII.!^, PA. vVEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 1938. - ; ~- Basketball: THE S Basketball By J O H N H.'WHORIC Sportsi Editor · -· FISTIC/THEN'OMENA*' S. .M. DeHuff furnished us with a copy of the Salisbury Advertiser and Wicomico Countian of Salisbury, Md., which tells- a - story of ~ a double knockout before a capacity crowd in. the Armory there ,,., . Arid the oddity of this ftstiana phenomena 'was that the referee--F.d Brockman--called-it a-drawr'"~" "'·' Probably, it-is best to let the veteran arbiter .tell-you the story os-he saw it from the center of the '-'ring.- Brockman'saUU" : *'·' "I have officiated -In at least' 15,000 bouts, but I saw one Thursday night at Salisbury-that-will-linger in my memory as long as I live. "Norris Polk,-who had scored six straight one-round .knockouts, in Salisbury; his-horrie town, met Otts Baiter .of .Baltimore, in'n six-round semifinal. A few seconds_aftcr the pair squared off. Baker, connected with a right .to the^ Jaw. and .Folk stayed down for a cout of .nine, , ,',_.,. ^Regaining his feet,.Polk flattened Baker.for.nine, and each.then, scored a knockdown in. which a.couot.,oJ three .was involved.^ .... .,, ., "They" faced each, .other, again In the,center, of .the ring,, and both,'let Cy with a right,.to_the chin....Both connected. ,,Both,,went, down .like bags of cement. I started, to. count, . When.I reached. 10, both.were on..1he floor, and still unable to rise., .. "They were assisted -to tho dressing room, and both were · out. five minutes after reaching their quarters. Then came the big question of what to call the bout. Should the fighter first regaining his feet-be declare* the winncr,"dr~should if be caUc3"a draw? "I. decided that'it wa» a draw They were both down when the coun of 10 was completed. That was the end of the flght. You could not consider the condition of the fighters afterward." "After the show, which. Incidentally, was'one of the greatest ew held, in'a small town, was completed Danny Russell, of Salisbury, came to my dressing room. Almost 10 year ago Russell fought in Baltimore and ' took part in a match that ended with a double knockdown but not a double knockout. "Russell met Benny Flax in Haiti more and Charley Short was tbj referee. Both landed at the same time and-both dropped to the canvas. Flak managed to regain hi feet at the count of nine and al though he collapsed seconds later was declared the winner by a knock' out." ·"· · FARR-BRADDOCK BOUT Tommy Fair meets former Chara pion James J. Braddock on Fridsy night in New York .City. Here' what the Collyer's Eye has to say about that 10-round fight: "Fair will win every round. This Is an Insult to the Intelligence of Nfiw York flght fans. Braddock can' whip a 10-year-old schoolboy has just come out of a sick bed, i'ar is priced at 1 to 5." Seems to us not so long ago they were picking out a marble slab an posies for Herr Moxie Schmeling bu they had to use them for the Brown Bomber. Farr's unorthodox style of flphtinj was a complete puzzle to Joe Lewis and the Welshman stayed the limit. Braddock," risking his title . agnlns Lewis, .had planned to-^b'ox th bomber but after he put over a hare sock thatihurt Joe, Jimmy got th notion he could "rock'him- to sleep Had he fought the kind-"of-,1gh£"h did in his;training, BradSock mlgh have been standing up, tbb,_- at end of the ,-out. \ ."-· -- ..
