PAGE-EIGHT THE DAILY COtrHTER, CONNELOSVUJuE, PA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1938. By JOHN Jl. WHORIC Sports Editor - HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS - SINCE GENE TUNNEY '. Renewed interest in boxing through increased activity in the heavyweight class has brought forth several queries about the order of ,lhe champions since- Gene Tunncy announced his retirement as title holder in August, 1928, after winning -the crown from Jack Dempsey in -1926. ~. Jack Sharkey defeated Young ..Stribling in 1929 in the finals of a tournament ordered by the New York State Athletic Commission, ^Max""Schmeling came into-the limer TigBtTbut got Intatrotiblerbecausc. he- icfused to fight Phil Scott of England. In" 1930, however, 'Schmcling 'took the title from Sharkey on a foul "allegedly struck in the fourth, round. Six -days later the .commission -elected" the German champion but the'following year'dethroncd him for "refusing to meet Sharkey. Schmelins then' scored a technical- knockout over Stribling in Cleveland. In July .of 1931 Sharkey was voted champion by the commission 'and he defeated Schmcling the following June, being recognized as the title holder.. Prime Camera flattened Sharkey in the sixth round'of their fight in June, 1933, and held the title until ·the following June .when Max Baer ·won on a technical knockout in the -lithe round. In June of 1935 Jimmy "Braddock took the honors-when he ·outpointed" Baer In .-New. -York 'Braddock was knocked out last June in Chicago by Joe Louis who is the [title holder today. Louis' big menace "is Schmcling who is the only fighter that has been able to stop the Brown J3omber,-interrupting-his sonsationa "career"with a~kayb punch «rfJTcri2t] round of their fight in 1936. - BOYS' HEARTS STIMULATED " TO DANGER DEGREE ~ - Dr. Marcus Hobart, Northwestern University -teVm"~physiKan,'~said~«x "pertinents at-Eva"nston,-I15.,-disclosec that the new stcainlined basketball rules "stimulated "the "nearts of play ers to a dangerous" degfee-as'-morc .telling blows were struck against th rule eliminating the center_ Jura; ·afterjeach score. ' -~~~ ~ . - Dr. Hobart who checked" heart ac -'tion after games said he found th ;nonmal beat of 60 to 90 per minut Increased alarmingly in one case' tc "- "I'm no heart specialist," Dr. Ho "bart aid, "but even these sketch .experiments indicate this new game Js too fast for most b'pys. I think the 5ld rules in which there was a center 3«mp after each field goal was plenty ;last for even university ·men," Dr.^Hobart said he made his in- "vestigatioh on the advice of Trainer ,Carl,Erickson, to see if the players ;nctu ally; were: over-exerted. ; "After racing for 40 minutes or so the count of most players was 108. In one case it mounted to 144. Some can stand more than others, but if over-stimulation continues for a great length of time--over several seasons through high school and college-heart muscles may become weakened with serious result." The physician admitted his experiments were far from complete. He has no figures based on tests after games under the old rules, but said be believes the new game is _ot least twice.as last as the old. _, "If these rules are to be continued there "ought to be more time out periods,". Hobart said. "That seems to be the only solution."

Mutric, who led the NewjYorE" Giants to their first NationaljL'eague pennant back In the days'before-thc Spanish War, died at the age of 86. He brought the Gotham its first title in 1888 and repeated in 1889 . .-. Jim Braddock and Tommy Farr will meet in a return 12-round bout at Madison Square Garden on'April 1 If Jim can talk his wife out of yank- Ing him down to Miami, Fla., for vacation. Thc_CiridreHa man can play smart an follow his wife's advice. The date of the fight might carry some significance to the 32- year-old veteran of fistiana . Eighteen new schools admitted ta P. I. A. A. membership increased the enrollment from 799 to 817, Sccic- tary Edmund C. Wicnt announced. iWe may some day have as many as a thousand schools at the peak," he added - . ."Fifteen annual national Catholic high school basketball championship tourney will be held .L'arch 23 to 27 at Loyola University .". . Conr~llsviHe and Dunbar Township will play a scries after the regular W. P. I. A. L. schedule. Dates fixed are February 25 at Leiseming and March 4 in Connellsville. Should Dunbar win the Section "iO crown-and it hns every reason m the world to do just that-; the -dates -may be changed ... Bill Terry's'feuding with th- newspaper boys.has been revived by his articlo in a Weekly magazine. That seems to be .one good way to keep in the public e". but it doesn't always pay.
