Louis j Totals NEW YORK, Aug. 31. — Max Schmeling pounds Walter Ncu.sel until his tall, blond countryman i is forced to surrender uncondltlon-1 ally, while seated In his .corner, and the repercussion is ' heard | throughout the resin realm. I It was a signal victory for I Schmeling—first proof that Max Baer dm not knock all the fight ,out of the Black Uhlan in the Yankee Stadium ring that baking June night of last year, The re-cstobllshment of Schmeling is welcome news to promoters land the German's contemporaries, | fur the very good reason thai the • Prc(7el Pounder still is perhaps 'ihe most magnetic attraction In 1 the game. Baer. with al) his clout and color, has yet to outdraw the ibiifiness-like beak busier of Bad] Sarrow. The present plan is for Baer to ake another whack at Primo Camera next June. Camera probably can be rebuilt, and the chain- p'.on figures the assignment just another night's work. It also Is likely (hat the articles for their June meeting called for a rematch in the event that the title changed hands, or that there was a gentlemen's agreement at least. But there would be a. much greater demand for a return Baer- Schmeling scrap than a Baer-Carnera meeting, for which there is none at all. If Schmeling belted out or decisively defeated the winner of the bout between Art Lasky nnd Steve Hamas, now set for the Sunken Garden on Sept. 27. Jacobs Charged With Error Lnsky no doubt will be made the choice over Hamas and his football legs, and, if the Jewish Jar- jrer of Minneapolis clicks, a con- between him and Schmeling i would be. another gigantic, with ( thc racial angle doing it no harm.

Such a tourney, to be called the Tri-Slate Open, is expected to attract scores of professional and amateur golfers Jrom Memphis, Little Rock, St. LouH and points in Mississippi and Kentucky. The tournament will come at a time when many professionals from the north will be on llieir way south to winter events and will probably receive a number of entries from some of the well known pro players of the country. Entries of pros from St. Louis, Memphis. Litile Rock and Mtal.isippl points have already been assured. A pursof of $500" will be oRered to be subject to an increase de- Fending on the number of entries for the event. The Blytheville course is a lengthy layout that will afford ample opportunity for testing the wood shots as well as the iron shots of even the best of golfers.

Every time Schmeling's name bobs up I think of how Joe Jacobs outsmarted himself in permitting Bner to put in is oar in the first place. The little man with the big cigar probably would not have made the mistake had not he and Schmeling seen the Butterfly Butcher with the corporation created by Tex Rickard.

Gomez allowed but fivcl ° m m ' hits as' he turned the Nats back. Weaver was ihe losing pitcher. Bube F^uth got into the game and made two hits and two runs. No other major league games were played yesterday. Jacobs was mad at Jimmy Johnston, the Garden ringmaster. Their difficulties date quite a few years back, and Jacobs felt that Schmel| ing was shortchanged the June I night ol 1932, when he shouted, ary challenger's share, but Little Joe was adamant. A partnership of years'• standing was torn asunder as the result. Schmeling passed up Sharkey, with whom he had drawn J1.252,- COO in two starls, and a contest in which he would have stood an excellent chance of becoming the first heavyweight to regain the wreath, to battle Baer—and be knocked kicking.
