Louis 1$ Favored To Beat Baer Tuesday By Knockout OMs Are 1 to 2 in of 'Brown Bomber' »Y ALAN GOW,D, Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, Sept. 23 (/P)—Whther or-hot It's a happy landing for the duiky warrior of the prize ring, the sensational pugilistic night of the "Brown Bomber," 21-year-old Joe Louts, comes to a climax tomorrow evening in the first million-dollar setting that boxing has known since Gene Tunney took the long count at Chicago eight years ago. The ' sullen, hard-hitting negro from Detroit, whose rapid rise Is synonymous with a return of pugilistic boom-days that Is little short of Incredible, stakes his unbroken professional winning streak and his championship ambitions against the rugged but erratic former cham- ploti, Max Adelbert Baer. They'are matched for 15 rounds but'lt doesn't figure to go the limit. A majority of the hundreds of fight critics gathered for one of the biggest fist-flinging parties in New York's sporting history favors Louis to win by a knockout. The betting odds are 1 to 2 in favor of the "Brown Bomber," un- beaten'in 24 consecutive fights and a two-fisted puncher whose advantages In youth, speed, boxing and ; hittlrig ability appear to outweigh the Iron-Jawed resistance or slugging power of the curly-haired Caflfornian. But that doesn't mean there aren't two distinct 'sides to this fistic argument. If he's really In shape for a rough and tumble punching pafty, Baer might produce sufficient weapons to over-power the young negro and abruptly end his dynamic sweep. • Rated off his last appearance ln ; a New York 'ring, where he lost his title to' Jim Braddoek, Maxie has nothing to lose and everything to gain in "shooting the works." Prom every angle. It figures to be a thrilling show for the greatest crowd that has ever witnessed a prize fight in New York. With only a few thousand tickets unsold today and an advance sale amoutlng to $860,000, Promoter Mike Jacobs, onetime associate of the renowned Tex Riekard, predicted a sell-out. This, said Mike, would mean 92,669 ticket-holders in the Yankee stadium and gross gate receipts of $1,176,930.10, a record for a non- championship fight. From a money standpoint, the fight, on a sell-out basis, will be second only to the Flrpo-Dempsey battle of 1923, which produced a "gate" of $1,188,000 from 82,000 cash customers. The non-title record is $1,083,000, set by the Dempsey- Sharkey fight at the Yankee stadium in 1927. Win,' lose, or draw, it's a certain gold mine for all concerned with a net "gate" of slightly more than $1,000,000, after the deduction of state and federal taxes, each fighter will collect 30 per cent or about $300,000. ' The task of turning the huge -ball park'Into a fighting arena was begun .last night, with a force of '600 men working in three shifts. They are installing nearly 25,000 "ringside" seats whlph will cover the entire infield and most of the outfield in the famous "House That Ruth Built." , With speculators getting as high as $175'each for the choicest ringside tJdkefcs obtainable, the aggregate outlay involved reaches staggering proportions. At least half the fans who will see the fight will be from outside New York. Special trains from San Francisco. Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia and other large cities were due today or early tomorrow. Business men figured $1,000,000 would be spent 'as a direct result of the bout. Both fighters, remaining at the camps ;today, win make fast trips to towp for the weighing in about noon' tomorrow. Scaling around 310, Baer probably will have an advantage of a dozen pounds, COLUMN from page 15 the state have taken up a voluntary'-fight for stricter laws' gdv- ernins the driving of automobiles, /\ and -eventually they are going to be heard.

VISITORS NET 10 RUNS IN 7TH; WINKLER IS STAR A combination team of Huber Blackfaces and Phillips 66 Oilers of Borger, playing under Phillifcs colors, took a 14 to 5 game from Phillips 77 of Pampa yesterday afternoon at Road Runner park. The Pampa team had the game on ice until the seventh inning,, when the visitors put on a scoring spree which netted 10 runs. Three Pampa hurlers saw service on the mound. Wlnkler, named the most promising prospect in the recent Junior chamber of commerce baseball tournament, took the mound for the Phillips 77 and held the slugging Huber-Phillips players to one run and five hits until the sixth inning, when he let Braly take the hill. Borger jumped on Braly In the seventh and shelled him from the mound. Haley received no better treatment, and Roberts had to take up the hurling assignment before the rally ended. Byron Ohody, ace of the Huber .team, was on the mound r, Phillips, Hadley having been knocked from the mound in the ffcurth, and he held the 'Pampans scoreless the rest of the game. The five Huber players with the Border nine played good ball, especially Al Summers, former Pampa Road Runner, who Hit and fielded sensationally. Warren also had his batting eye on the ball. Newman, Phillips first baseman, helped the cause with timely hitting late in the game. Newsome, Lister and Sawyer played outstanding ball for Pampa, but it was Wlnkler's pitching that stood out. ' . Phillips 77 would like to meet a team of Phillips 66 players anytime, anyplace, and under any' circumstances, so long as the opposition is a Phillips team from Borger.

(F) —The Oklahoma City Indians wei-e within one game of the Texas league championship today by virtue of a riotous 10-7 daylight victory over the Beaumont Exporters here yesterday. And the Indians were pointing for that game of games tonight, when they hope to clinch the Shaughnessy series that now stands Oklahoma City 3, Beaumont 1. Most fans agreed that "Long John" Niggellng, would take the mound against the Exporters. The Texas club hasn't been able to do very much against Niggeling's hurling all season. His pitching opponent was undecided. The bats of both clubs boomed loud in yesterday's struggle. The Tribe got an even score of hits; Beaumont sluggers rapped thirteen The struggle was almost even for the first two' Innings, but the Indians banged across five tallies In the third to make the score 7-1. Each team used three pitchers. Marleau of Oklahoma City was given credit for the victory, thanks to the long lead his mates gave him. He was relieved, however, in the seventh, when Beaumont scored four runs, stiely took the mound, but Brlllheart had to come to his rescue. Gill, Phillips and Cook pitched for Beaumont. In the Indians' half of the seventh, Bllgere singled, Fitzpatrlck doubled, and Myers clouted a homer. The Exporters added a single run in the ninth, as they had done in the sixth, but the tally was fruitless. X A victory for Oklahoma City tonight would qualify the Indians to represent the "Texas league in the Dixie series with the winner of the Southern association playoff.

Me lets you see the trulninR through the psychological point of view. He visited both training camps at the windup. He talked personally with Baer, Louis, trainers, managers, nnd the little-noticed "under cover" persons to whose advice the fighters listen. Below will be found answers to many questions fight fans are asking. BY J. L. MORENO, M. D. SPECULATOR, N. Y., Sept. 23.— First let's look at Max Baer and Joe Louis as the spectators see them in their training rings getting ready for the heavyweight battle at Yankee stadium Tuesday night. Max enters the ring. He dances in circles, waves his arms, turns his head quickly around, laughs loudly, playfully strikes his trainer in the stomach. He Jumps at his sparring partners with flashes of attack, then eases up, relaxes, forced to pause to refresh himself. In these pauses he Is often a helpless defenseless target for even an unskilled opponent. He becomes embarrassed, "wise cracks," and gestures to the onlookers as if to say "it's all a Joke." After two or three flashes of such attacks he begins to 'breathe heavily, he tires. This uneven, jerky fighting, the ups and downs, are due to his emotional makeup. Every man has a limited supply of emotional energy. If a fighter can concentrate all his emotional energy on the opponent, he gets the greatest effect. But Beer's energy is divided between fighting and acting for spectators. Attention Split. His attention is split. He wants to rule in two kingdoms. He has to betray one or the other. He has both attitudes aroused at the same time, the fighting instinct by his opponent, the acting instinct by the spectators. This divided attitude disintegrates the value of the emotions of fighting, hating and breaking through the defense. It makes him in spots absent-minded while fighting. Baer tries to be savage. But he is not so bj»' nature—it is secondhand savageness. He wants to appear like a super-man. He wants to create the impression that he is above winning or losing, but he likes himself too much for his own good. Fighting is a job In which you have to forget your ego. You have to fight with your opponent, and not "solo." Louis enters the ring silently like a cat. You would not know that here is the hope of his race, unless someone told you. He looks anonymous, casual, without any affectation. He fights as If no one else existed but himself and his opponent. He Is unaffected by the audience. He moves at an even pace toward his opponent, to and fro in a smooth, machine-like manner. Every moment you feel that here is a man who knows his Job well ready for emergencies, who cannot be taken by surprise easily. Is 'Centripetal' Person. His face is expressionless. If he is hurt you cannot see it. If he is mad you cannot see that either. He is a; "centripetal" person. This means that whatever he is is conserved within him. He spots every motion of his opponent. He wastes neither motion nor emotion. He fights "with" his opponent, flexible, shifting and suddenly aggressive if there is an opening. He follows his victim pitilessly if he sees ;him softening. After seven fast rounds, unlike Baer, hfs breathing is as even as at the start. His sparring partners go to their corners panting. Louis is unchanged, doesn't speak a word No drop of perspiration is visible on •his skin. By contrast with this "centripetal" man, Max Baer is "centrifugal." Everything Baer has he throws out on the surface, easy to be seen, even though dangerous as a buzz saw. The' greatest contrast between the two fighters lies in the way they warm up to a punch. Baer fatigues easily. Why? Louis never seems to fatigue. Why? 'Baer warms up quickly, emotion- ally and physically, but his warming lip Is uneven and involves the generation of an outburst of vicious, savage-rage. In this outburst he freaks away from the normal pattern and throws himself into a spontaneous state Which Is unpredictable, in Which he does not aftt according to plan, but as in a wild inspiration. Such outbursts consume many times more energy than smooth, regular fighting. He pays heavily for this. When he is through such a rage the after-effect Is momentarily as if he were paralyzed. Louis, in contrast, relaxes between the punches. His rhythm of Fighting is like the heart beats, con- iracting and relaxing. That is Why tie never seems to tire. * Louis' warming-up Is even, Increasing gradually to heat. Even His flashes of attack seem organized, In the line of normal development. He flares up in attack, in the training ring at least, in tempo with his opponent. When his sparring partner hits hardest, Joe wades in with still harder punches. However great the contrast seems between the pair, they have several fundamental things In common. Both are yet to mature mentally, both have an unusual narrow range of Interests. Both possess a deadly punch, Family Is Detriment. tinder cover there is perhaps one man in the camp, Billy McCarney, who more than anyone else gives Baer a plan of battle. But the presence at the training camp of Mama and Papa Baer, his brother, Buddy, and Baer's wife, however delightful persons they are and however strong the family attachments, makes the emotional situation more difficult. They do not belong In the training camp. These things have to be separated. It is perhaps due to this lack of coordination that the Baer brain trust searched for a famous doctor —Jack Dempsey—to be In Baer's corner. At the ringside Dempsey's influence might spur him or hurt him The man in the comer should grow gradually with the fighter during training into an emotional relationship. Otherwise he might not be the quick, reliable aid in emergencies, when decisions have to be made almost without words. One of the greatest contrasts in pugilism is the {difference presented by the smooth-working brain trust in the negro training camp. The atmosphere there is htfrmon- ius, better coordinated in purpose less anxious and perhaps even more human. No family members are around— exclusively men who have something to do with the coming fight. Training Is entirely in the hands of one man, Jack Blackburn, himself an old, experienced fighter. In less than a year he has transformed an unknown Detroit negro youth into a fighter who may bring again to his race the laurels of championship. Baer does not retain what he learns in training. When he is hit and hurt he laughs to show it is nothing. He does nothing then, he Just fights. Baer, hit on the chin, probably does not feel it as much as another fighter, on account of his almost pathological vanity. His big ego is a good protection. I think Louis would be easier to knock down, because of Baer's better balance on his toes. But t knockdown may have less harmfu effect on Louis than on Baer. .«. : New Orleans and Atlanta to Meet In Final Playoff (By The Associated Press.) Atlanta and New Orleans, winners in the first round of the Shaughnessy play-off, rested today for the final five-game series in which they will meet each other for the Southern association baseball championship. The Crackers, league leaders at the close of the regular season eliminated the fourth-place Nashville club from the running with an 8 to 1 victory yesterday. New Orleans disposed of Memphis as a title contender Saturday. ; Each of the finalists, who open 'the championship round in Atlanta Tuesday night, came through the preliminary series without defeat although the Crackers had to play four games needed three victories.

Both teams coasted along until the seventh inning, when Manager Sam Hale of the Coltexos blasted one of Stewart's curves over the fence, scoring one run ahead of him, ;ying the count at 4 runs each. Then things began to happen. Pitchers tightened, batters took harder grips on their clubs, and the fielders showed more sparkle than at any time during the affray. The ninth inning came and rolled past with no'more scores. Then came bhe tenth. The Road Runners, again the visiting club, sent two counters across the plate. Coltexo came to bat and placed a man on base. The next batter Went out. The following slugger got on- base. Things looked bad for the Road Runner lead but Stewart tightened and retired the next two batters. Stewart pitched one of his old time ball games although nicked for 12 blngles. Parker, the big right- hander who annexed the Junior chamber of commerce title from the Road Runners, was met with 14 clean bingles. Big hitting was in charge of the two "Sams"—Sam Scaling of the Road Runners artd Sam Hale of Coltexo. Scaling led in number but Hale was in front in distance. The Road Runners have not definitely given up hope of seeing the Kansas City Monarchs or the Chinese All Stars here this season, to wind up another great baseball year for Pampa.

Schmidt of Ohio State, blessed with one of the finest arrays of girdiron talent ever assembled under the scarlet and gray banner, has decided he will have no "first team" this year. The tall, taciturn Texan, convinced he has two or three players of equal strength for practically every position, is taking advantage of that fact by constructing a high- geared machine in which the parts will be interchangeable. With 19 lettermen back from lasl year's team, a flock of fine reserves and several outstanding sophomores to start the training season, he has welded together a team possessing deception, speed and power. A team of letter men could be placed on the field by Schmidt, bul the charices are 'that several sophomores wilt shblder their way into the limelight before the opening game with Kentucky here Oct. 5. Regardless of how he shifts his linemen around, the Ohio mentor will present a forward wall averaging about 198 pounds, while his backs, no matter what combination he uses. Will stack up at better than 180. Early practices Indicate that Ohio State, 'as last year, will rely on the wide-open aerial style of game to gain ground, but the wily Sehmidl has augmented that with a powerful running attack. The punting with 'Johnny Kabealo, Franklin Boucher and Jimmy Karcher doing it, is far from a source of worry. Practically unhurt by graduation losses, 'Ohio has been touted to win the Big Teh title. To such claims Schmidt's only answer has been: "We will have a good team. Bul let's play those other fellows before we claim any titles." The Ohio schedule: Oct. 6r-?Centucky. Oct. 12—Drake.

Southwest conference football ;eams will take the field in an unbroken front this week as the University of Texas and University of Arkansas squads go Into action for ;he first time, joining the five league members who turned In records of lopsided victories over outsiders last week. The University of Texas Longhorns will make their debut in Austin against the Texas A. & I. Javelinas of Kingsvllle Saturday,. At the same time, Fred Thomsen Will sent his Arkansas Razorbacks out at home in Fayetteville to clash with the Pittsburgh, Kas., Teachers. Jimmy Kitts' Rice Owls, defending champions, will take the spotlight, however, as they Journey to Baton Rouge Saturday for a battle with the Louisiana State Tigers -in a game which occupies a prominent postlon on the week's national football calendar. The Owls romped over St. Mary's San Antonio Rattlers last week, 38 to 0, with the regulars sitting on the sidelines after the first quarter. Texas Christian, which daily looms stronger as a pennant contender and which last week walloped Howard Payne, Texas conference champion, 41 to 0, will take on Jack SIsco's North Texas State Teachers at Fort Worth Saturday. Against the Howard Payne Yellow Jackets, who had not been beaten since Armistice day in 1933, the Horned Frog regulars were permitted to play only seven minutes after the kickoff. The Fort Worth game will provide some basis of comparing the Horned Frogs and the Southern Methodist Mustangs. The Methodists, in their first start under Madison Bell and Vic Hurt, defeated the Teachers last week 39 to 0. This coming Saturday they, will meet the Austin college of Sherman team at Dallas.

FULtERfON Jr., Associated ptcts SfMWti Wttttif. The Chicago. Cubs Were. almost ready today to coast taitd the JTa* tlonal league pennant ttndet the momentum generated by" thetf amazing 18-game winning fctteafc Idle for two days While the second-place St. Louis Cardinals tackle the Pirates twice, the Cubs were assured of having at least a tWo-gaihe lead when their final "pay-off" series with the Cards starts Wednesday. That much was made certain yesterday when Larry French pitched Chicago to a 2 to 0 victory over Pittsburgh in the eighteenth of the amazing string of triumphs that has carried them to the top. The Cards won a double header from Cincinnati, taking the first game 14 to 4 when the Reds went to pieces and made seven errors to' aid the 15 Cardinals hits. Dizzy Dean captured the second when-he limited the Reds to three hits in a mound duel with Al Hollingsworth ,o win 3 to 1 and reduce Chicago's margin to three games. The Cards will have to win four • out of five from Chicago to take the flag, if they succeeding in trimming the Pirates. If they do that, the final standing will be St. Louis won 99, lost 55; Chicago, won 98, ost 56. Before a crowd of 40,558—with 20,000 more turned away—the Cubs made the most of their seven hits off Cy Blanton yesterday. While French was invincible in the pinches, Chicago tallied a run in the llrst on Augie Galan's scratch hit, Pep Young's error, Fred Llndstrom's sacrifice and Galan's dash home ahead of Arky Vaughan's peg after Gabby Harriett's grounder. The other run came in the eighth when Lindstrom singled, Hartnett sacrificed and Frank Demaree doubled. Detroit's Tigers, who clinched the American league flsg Saturday, drew 24,000 fans to see them absorb a 1 ;o 0 shutout from the Browns when Rookie Earl Caldwell pitched a 3-hit game. That brought their season's ;otal at home to 1,170,000 customers, a Navin field record. The largest crowd in the Red Sox history, 47,627, saw a final doubleheader against the Yankees and was disappointed when New York slugged out two triumphs, 6 to 4 and 9 to 0. Boston's other team, the humble Braves, was trimmed twice by the Phillies, 7 to 5 and 4 to 3, and es- iablished a new "modern" National league mark of 110 losses hi a season. The old figure of 109 was made by the Phils in 1928, but the all- time mark of 134 losses by the Cleveland Nationals of 1899 remained intact. The Giants, though they beat Brooklyn 5 to 2, were definitely eliminated from the National league pennant race. The day's other results made it impossible for the Giants to beat out both the Cubs and Cards. Cleveland's winning streak stopped at eight straight when the Indians, after trimming the White Sox 6 to 3 in the first game, took a 9 to 2 shellacking in the second. Washington, however, continued to move at a rapid rate, pounding out two lopsided decisions over the last-place Athletics, 10- and 11-1. WAJOP LEAGUE (By The Associated Press.) National Leagrue.
