PAGE SIX Endurance -Mark Steve Dudas Hands Patrick I; d w a r d Comiskey A Savage Licking By HARRY l'EHUUK'1: Untied PICES Sports Kditoi NEW YORK, r>c. lO.-The i«j came leaking out of his nose in a steady, maddening drip 1'ike \\au-j from n rusty faucet too old to be repaired. Just above thc belt ho was crimson with welts where soggy leather had raked and bruised him. Out. of the red mess of his face peered two bewildered, baffled blue eyes, searching for something (hey nevw found—an opening that would give him a shot for (he jaw. Patrick Edward Comiskey, boy wonder of tlie heavyweights, probably the hardest right htind puncher in the bushier, a 19-year-old dynamiter who scemert on his way to a bout with champion Joe Louis, was taking the licking of lus life And (he first licking lie ever took. He took It last night in a blue haze of smoke at Madison .. Square Garden, took It iiotn a '^old campaigner named Steve ~ ' > is not very fast afoot but who has absorbed the lore of tlie leather to make a monkey of a green kid. Dudas did it by bobbing and weaving, rolling with the punches and getting In close where the long ones couldn't connect. This bout was only a preliminary on the Garden card, but those of us who sat there watching it had the feeling that comes over horsemen when a promising coll breaks down. We were watching a piece of property that potentially Is worth 51,000,000 go to pieces before pur eyes. Par this fight was to be the springboard that would send Comiskey bounding up into the ranks of the topflight heavyweights, Irom where he coidd go on to wealth and glory—a shot at the dusky • jaw of Louis, thc dark dcstrojer. Tlie kill came up to the crucial 24 minutes of this eight-round bout with a great record—22 knockouts .in 24 bouts, never defeated since he became a professional. For a year his right hand has been knocking them kicking. Dudas has been through the mill, winning some, losing some and never looking like a ball of fire Schmeling, Pastor, Burmtm, Koscoc Teles and Gastfigrm have licked him. But along the trail he got thc cunning: that only experience can buy. And that fa what sidetracked one of the most promising yollug fighters in the country. Comiskey jabbed with his left and cocked his right for the kill, but every time the punch rolled through, Dudas was wcnvln» away and letting it slip acres'- his slioul- . der. Then Dudas would go in close and belt away for the body. Com- Iskey, bewildered, would wrestle out of a clinch and let loose with the right again. Then Dudas would-bob out of range. • It went on that way/for the-fiill eight rounds .and there was no dls- •senling voice' when Dudas got the - decision. Not even Conjlskcy complained. The licking may help him—Demp-' sey took lickings, Louis took one and they say every man needs one to become a truly great fighter. Anyway, .PatrickVEdward?Conf- iskey will be back for lie still is a valuable .piece of property—secondhand and slightly damaged ' ' ' Two or three years of experience may send him knocking at the door again in 1942 or 1943, for tile punch is there and will stay there Better file him under the head of "unfinished business."

Dope Bucket 87 J. P. FRIEND JOINER, December 15. — There no two places in Mississipl Coun- y, other thnn the ol' home town of Blylhcvllle, where I always have a swell-elegant time and take sne- ceial delight in visiting. One is Osceola, the- other Joiner where I am tonight as guest ol Shawnce High school at the Booster CUib's iimunl football banquet honoring heir Indians. These people here certainly kno>v he meaning of the word "hospital- ty. Although a "furriner", they srectcd me like a long lost ricn incle who hud one foot in ths Strive and the other on a bannna icel and had Just returned. They gave me a reception fitting for a tar halfback that made me feel 'cry much at home, treated me to a - lavish banquet with nil the Thinnings, and even laughed at ny moth eaten yarns during my ceble cfforls at elocution. Joiner Is quite proufl of their excellent institution of learning and justly so. It is the biggest lit- le school T have ever been nf- forded the pleasure ot Inspecting. There lire only thice A class North JCntrnl schools In the county nnel Shnwnce is one ot that trib. It Is i rural consolidated school, the only one In the county. Their yvnit- latcs are recognized just as nny other first class school in the en- ire country, regardless of size. They boast the best gymnasium In he county and one of the best n jthe state. An up-to-date cafe- era that can serve and seat approximately 150 gives them added distinction. The grounds cover an area or !en acres. In addition to the main building and gym, [here are: nn agri building, home cc. cottage, scout hut and band hall, an eigh'.- room tencherngc. ami a six-room cottage for the superintendent. 'There -are play ground racilitlos nnd equipment for students from beginners through (he 12lh grartc. Included are: sliding boards, teeter- totters, horizontal bars, two out- dor basketball courts, a tennis court, volley ball court, footbill nnd soccer field, three sollball diamonds. The gym is equipped with numefous inside games such as badminton, table tennis, etc. The biology department'recently finished an.outside aquarium. Much credit is due Superintendent John Burnett lor the rauH progress or this modern educational plant. Under his direction the building and equipment have been modernized, A Democratic government rule has been installed for students with emphasis on citizenship training as well as the thro? "Its".

From I this source the boys have been adding equipment to the deparl- ' ment each year until it is now ' well equipped. And the athletic department can't bo over-looked, either. For with James Ace Puckett, former Blythovlllc Junior coach, In the saddle a well rounded athletic program has been installed designed to reach all. Because of limited numbers they went to six-man football last year and came . through with n perfect .elght-gtmic 'season nnd, quite naturally, tue Northeast. Arkansas Six-Man championship.
