Big Joe he now weighs 222 pounds knows he is no longer the lean shuffling battler of yesterday. It is said his best fighting weight is 208 pounds. Joe rear-es much of the speed has left s legs and the quickness is missing from his defensive reflexes. But he said today: I still can punch. Joes trainer, Manny Searnon, agrees. Said Manny: Joe Droved he still has plenty of punch left in him while on an exhibition tour this Spring. That is one of the reasons he decided on a comeback. The destroyer is now putting in his pre-training stint to reduce at West Baden, Ind. He plays golf, drinks mineral water, takes sulphur baths and diets. Around the 12th or 15th of August he will begin road work with his long-time friend F -ddie Wilson of New York. Wilson has been running with the champ for the last 10 years. The Louis stable will depart about Sept. 1 for Pompton Lakes, N. J., for the serious business of getting in shape for his postretirement campaign. Louis arises about 10 a. m. each day, eats a light breakfast of fruit juice, cereal, soft-boiled eggs, some bacon, hot tea and maybe a slice of toast. After breakfast he goes with friends up the road to French Lick Springs to play golf. The other day he carded a 69 on the par 71 course. The day is pent playing golf and just visitin around. Then for his 5 oclock dinner the only other meal of the- day joe sits down to a medium-cooked steak or chops, or fish. He leaves starchy foods alone. He usually retires about 10 p. m. The Brown Bomber said he will be in great shape for his battle with Charles, curr-nt National Boxing Association titleholder, recognized everywhere but in New York and England. Joe asserted: I feel fine. I rest good. Fans will see the same Joe Louis they saw before. Will Louis return to retirement after his September fight? He doubts it. He thinks he can beat Charles. He believes he dill has enough to keen going in the ring for a while. Searnon commented: Sure, Joe will win and he will defend the title against all comers.

Bv JERRY LE DONNE DETROIT, Aug. 5 (U.PJ The Detroit Tigers nominated center fielder Johnny Groth as their forgotten man today. The handsome youngster is giving the sophomore jinx a sound licking with a ,315 batting average and one of the best throwing arms in baseball. The important role hes playing in Detroits pennant drive is overlooked by most Tiger fans. He has the misfortune of playing between the popular Hoot Evers and Vic Wertz, so its little wonder that he goes unnoticed when he takes his swings. Its somewhat of a, comedown for the 24-yeaivold Groth. Last year he was the glamor boy of the Detroit squad one of the most talked about rookies in the majors. This season hes just another player to the fans but much appreciated by his teammates and Manager Red Rolfe. Many athletes have been spoiled by too much publicity, but Groth weathered the early praise showered upon him to become one of the Tigers most promising players. In Spring training last year Groth was hailed as neither Di-Maggio or Ruth. He started out like a house-on-fire, hitting near .400 before cooling to a respectable .293 by Aug. 19 when he suffered a broken wrist which idled him for the rest of the season. The avalanche of publicity descended upon Groth fired him with a determination to live up to all his notices. Im not going to be impatient, Groth said. I know Ive still got a lot to learn and it takes time to develop. Rolfe is one of Groths staunchest boosters. The first day I saw Johnny I figured hed be a great ball player and I still think so, the Tiger pilot said. Hes got a wonderful arm and knows how to use it Pirates Rojek Fined , Suspended PITTSBURGH, Aug. 5 (UR) Pittsburgh Pirate Shortstop Stan Rojek was suspended for five days and fined $100 today for pushing Umpire Lou Jorda last night in a game between the Pirates and Giants at New York. The Pirates were notified of the suspension by National League President Ford Frick. Rojek bumped Jorda in the eighth inning as he protested to Jorda who called Tookie Gilbert safe on a pickoff play at second base. The Giants went on to score three runs and defeat Pittsburgh 3-2. Lions Send Mann To Grid Yankees DETROIT, Aug. 5 (UR) The Detroit Lions sent star end Bob Mann to the New York Yankees today, completing the deal which brought quarterback Bobby Layne to coach Bo McMillins club last Winter. The original trade involved fullback Camp Wilson in exchange for Layne, but Wilson refused to report to the Yankees. He is now on the Lions reserve list. Mann, an All-American at Michigan, set a Detroit team record last season by catching 66 passes for 1,014 yards and four touchdowns. The Lions also will receive New Yorks fifth draft choice next January.
