The object of his trip was not that of organizing sporting contests. Immediately he arrived,'he began an inflamed speech about the 'splendid liberty nd civilization' In the United States and the necessity of war to How the 'American way of life' o be extended over other countries.- / . 'Joe Louis was sent to Brazil use.his former:sporting glory to make propaganda in favor of war." That is a Communist theme—hat American sports are developed "prepare young .
