N ft Farr Embittered Over Knockdown Odds Soar on Monday Night Title Bout as News of Britisher's Tumble in Ring Spreads By Paul Mickelson N5 m Yo,k- Sunshine flooded everybody's skies Saturday fP,4 7Tmy Farr's as the ex-Welsh -coal miner, one of the most belittled heavyweight challengers since Gentleman Jim Corbett warmed up for the mighty John L. Sullivan, awaited his chance at Joe Louis title. After a week of intermittent rain, which forced postponement of the big fight from Thursday to Monday night, the sun came out with jrvcry indication of providing clears ' ski ics for the battle. Promoter Mike Jacobs, reporting K new rush of ticket sales and few cancellations because of the postponement, was so elated he left rarly for his country home in New Jersey. Louis, though warned nainst overconfidence, also fremed bright and confident. Farr, who hasn't been a fight favorite since his carnival days, "was more angered than discoursed but his camp handlers were perturbed because ? sparring mate, Abe Felr'man, had scored a clean knockdown against the challenger in Friday's workout at Long Branch, N. J. Though they publicly dismissed the incident and mumbled something about a wet floor, they were worried lest Farr be overtrained. Odds Soar Meanwhile odds on the challen ger soared rapidly from 4 to 7 and even 10 to 1, whereas on Thursday morning Louis money was hard to find. Jacobs made no attempt to suppress the news that Fair had been floored. In fact, Uncle Mike seemed a bit happy as he hasn't been any too confident the last few days that Louis would have exactly a pushover in the rough und tumble Welshman. Sure he went down," said Ja- Anyway Jersey Jones (Farr's press agent) said he did and Jersey doesn't tell strange tales unless they're true. All it will affect is the odds. We got only $1,000 beck from the fans who had to return home and couldn't wait for Monday but the box office sold $10,000 worth of tickets Friday. I now have $152,000 in cash exclusive of the $60,000 I'm getting from radio and movies. There's $57,000 worth of ducats outstanding on consignment so how can 1 miss doing $300,000?" Out of Red So it seems as if Mike is definitely out of the red on this one despite his' guarantee of $60,000 to Farr, who for a spell looked like thevonly sure winner, except Uncle Sam, no matter the outcome. News of Farr's knockdown was withheld from Louis over in his camp at Pompton, Lakes, N. J., his managers fearitjg he would become overconfident as he did against Max Schmeling. Louis was given a few more phonograph records and an extra meal so he wouldn't get time to pal around too much with the visiting ex-perts. Farr was in a warlike mood Saturday, accordfnp to the reports from his 19-room mansion on the Atlantic ocean. Angered when a Mwar correspondent questioned him too closely on Feldman s knockdown triumph, he lost his temper nd shouted "One more mention of my and nerves." exploded Tommy, I'll fling you through the door, you bloody coughdrop!" George Zahn Hurls Hawks Back to First Waterloo. CT) George Zahn, veteran Western league pitcher, turned in a brilliant exhibition Saturday night to Yefeat Tes Moines, 3 to 0, and boost the Red -Hawks back into first place. Zahn allowed five hits, one a double by Criscola in the ninth. The Hawks' only error, in the second inning, put Zahn in the fhost dangerous spot of the game. Geer missed Hughes' drive and Bissonette walked, but Hughes was cut down at third on an at- temDted double steal. Gorhaml walked. Martinez struck out, while Geer took care of Menke's drive, tossing the runner out at first.' Kosy singled in the sixth but was retired at third by a great hrow by JoJo Mack, after Allaire had hit to left.

IT) The Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds, fighting to avoid the National league cellar, divided two pitching duels Saturday, and remained exactly where they were, with the Brook-lyns a half-game behind their rivals. Roy Henshaw and Ben Cantwell gave the Reds only three hits in the opener, but that was enough for Cincinnati to score a 3 to 0 shutout victory, behind Paul Derringer's six-hit elbowing. Big Max Butcher turned ina nine-hitter in'the nightcap for a 2 to 1 Brooklyn triumph. Gene Schott, who went the route for the Reds in the second game, allowed only six hits, but four of these were bunched in two frames. First trame CINCINNATI BROOKLYN Ab li Po A Ab H Po A O.

GHISOX AVOID FOURTH PLACE AS NATS LOSE Defeat Washington, 3-2, to Take Senator Series Chicago. (JT) Those two venerable gentlemen of the White Sox, Manager Jimmy Dykes and Pitcher Ted Lyons, teamed up Saturday to give the Chicago club a 3 to 2 victory over the Washington Senators. The series, last here with the Senators this season, went to the Sox, two games to one. Dykes, troubled all season by his legs, appeared at his old third base stand only occasionally this year, but Saturday an ankle injury to Mule Haas forced the Sox pilot to play first base. He handled 13 chances without an error and slammed out a home run for his team's third and winning marker. Lyons, dean of the Sox mound corps, held the Senators to seven hits, besting Wes Ferrell, who gave up only eight safeties. One of them, however, was Dyke's homer, his first of the year, and another was a round tripper by Luke Appling. It was Lyons' 10th victory of the campaign and kept the Sox from dropping into fourth place as the menacing Boston Red Sox were whipping Detroit.

(JF) Van Mungo, ailing right handed pitching ace of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Saturday was suspended indefinitely without pay for "insubordination." Burleigh Grimes, fierylmanager of the Dodgers, announced the suspension of Mungo who has been suffering from a sore arm since the season turnedthe halfway mark. It marked the right hander's second suspension this season and his Ithird in wo years. He was fined $1,000 and suspended for three days at St. Louis earlier this year after a before dawn fight with a teammate, Jim Bucher. In June of 1936 he was fined and suspended for leaving the Dodgers at Pittsburgh without leave. TO FIGHT HERE Shown above is Vern Patterson,; 1937 international Golden Glove champion who defeated Dick Demeray here earlier this season, and will'make his second appearance here Thursday night when he meets Henry Schaf t, Minneapolis, in the eight-round head-liner at the Uptown boxing arena.

CFi The New York Yankees threw their "concede" pitchers at the Browns Saturday, and results were about as expected. Despite Joe DiMaggio's 38th homer of the year, delivered with a mate on base in the fourth, the Brownies belted Blubber Malone, Ivy Paul Andrews and Frank Makosky for a dozen hits and scored a 9 to 5 victory. ' They wiped out a five-run Yan kee lead by mauling Malone for five themselves, in the fourth, and then followed with the winning tallies off Andrews. The defeat made no difference in the Yankes' ll1 game lead, in the American league, however, since the second place Detroit Tigers also were defeated Saturday. The loss ended the Yanks' three game winning streak and gave the Brownies their only win of the three-game series.

Charles Emile ("Gus") Dorais of the University of Detroit, an old hand at such things, has di rected the priming. Close to 80,- 000 fans who have tickets for the fourth annual scrap between collegians and professionals are likely to see what they have been ex pecting for three years a spectacular scoring carnival. If it does connect, where its predecess ors missed, as a thrilling touchdown display, aerial maneuvers probably will be responsible. Hasr Famous Tossers The 6,000,000 fans who elected Dorais head coach of the all stars also handed him almost every famous passer of the 1936 college season in his squad of 65. stalwarts. He has Texas Christian's Sammy Baugh, Ray Buivid . of Marquette, Ed Goddard of Washington State, Vernon Huffman of Indiana, Tippy Dye of Ohio State, Julie Alfonse of Minnesota, Sam Francis of Nebraska, and Byron Haines of Washington, as his gunners, and has fashioned his bid for triumph around them. Dorais started producing for ward passing surprises during his undergraduate days at Notre Dame, hooking up with the late Knute Rockne. They made the army daffy with aerials in 1913. Seven or eight years ago at Detroit, he sprang Lloyd Brazill, a brilliant heaver, on the Titans' foes, and more recently used the talented arm of Douglas Nott as Detroit's chief weapon. Baugh Amazes Coaches Baugh, elected captain of the all stars, will be the main gun His expert passing has amazed even Dorais and his assistants, El mer Layden of Notre Dame, Lynn Waldorf of Northwestern, "Bernie Moore of Louisiana State, and Jimmy Phelan of Washington. Buivid, Marquette's all America halfback, is hardly less dangerous, and spots have been picked in advance for the others, particu larly Francis, Haines and, Alfonse, who are southpaws. Should the collegians triumph in the colorful spectacle under the lights, it would be the , first official setback in the series for football as played on the so much per yard basis. The 1934 and 1936 collegians gained moral victories over their more experienced foes in the shape of 0-0 and 7-7 draws with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions, respectively. The Bears defeated the 1935 group, 5 to 0, in the rain.
