AMPA DAILY NEWS, f ampfl, f e*a« BAER AND LOUIS WILL BATTLE TONIGHT BEFORE MILLION-DOLLAR CROWD WILL LAST 6 THINKING OF WITHDRAWING AS BAER'S AID , By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, Sept. 24. (/P)—The roar of the mightiest crowd that has been lured to the ringside by the fight ballyhoo in eight years signalizes the return of pugilistic .prosperity tontght in the vast open Spaces of the Yankee stadium. -Built a dozen years ago to exploit the hitting power of Babe Ruth, about the time that Jack Dempsey was pounding Luis Angel Firpo into senselessness, the stadium furnishes the setting now for a fistic fantasy unknown since Tex r Rlckard died and unsuspected until a 81-year old negro took the country by storm with his knockout punch. ' It's one of the most amazing things that has ever happened in sports, no matter what the outcome this evening as Joe Louis, the chocolate soldier with the devastating fists, meets the comeback challenge of the wild-swinging, emotionally- furious Max Baer, former world heavyweight champion. In scarcely a year, Louis has become the greatest individual drawing card in American sports. The answer to a fight promoter's prayer, after a period in which heavyweight pugilism has plumbed new depths of mediocrity and financial disaster, the sensational Detroit negro has electrified the entire 'fistic outlook. Win or lose against the most for. midable antagonist he has faced, Louis is the main magnet for the greatest crowd that ever gathered for a non-championship match. ,., It's a million-dollar show, surrounded by such furious debate and such extraordinary demand for tickets at any price that the great Rjckard, if he had lived through the depression years of boxing, would have looked on in wonderment and remarked characteristically, "I've never seen nothin' like it." To Meet Braddock The legend of Rickard's luck, It seemed, has carried on under the Skillful hand of Tex's one-time associate and now his successor in gifted fight promotion—Michael Strauss Jacobs. The box-office reports forecast a probaTplE'sellout or the nearest thing to it in fight history. The weather man forecast "fair and warmer tonight," with nothing for Jacobs to worry about except the ultimate job of matching the winner with James J. Braddock for the world heavyweight champion in 1936. A capacity crowd tonight means close to 95,000 spectators and an aggregate "gate" of $1,184,830, more than twice as much money as any prize fight has drawn in five years '.'arid a mark surpassed only slightly by the memorable Firpo-Dempsey battle of 1923. 'Measured by present-day financial ,f standards, it is much more startling than the fact that the last Dempsey-Tunney duel attracted nearly $3,000,000 in gate receipts at Chicago in 1927. Judging from the prices speculators have been asking—and getting —tfor choice ringside locations, the actual money paid to witness the tyjut will bs far in excess of the box- office figures. Pasteboards of the $25 class—and there are no less than 23,107—have been bringing anywhere from $50 to $200 each on Broadway during the last week. Tremendous Stake Involved •It's the old-time lure of the knock- oilt wallop, the blood and thunder sjuff of the prize ring .that has bjjought to New York the greatest gathering of notables for any sport- uig event since the boomdays. They are "not likely to be disappointed. Not only is the entire setting such as to arouse the utmost is combative instincts on either side, » hut there ,is a tremendous stake involved. {Baer and Louis are assured close to $3.00,000 each as their share of '''tonight's spoils, but victory will niean perhaps $500,000 more within the next year, including a shot at tl}6 heavyweight crown. Whether the sullen, splnx-llke Louis flattens Baer as he has most of two dozen previous professional opponents or whether the curly- haired Califprnian, with the berserk tury of his attack, blasts the resistance, of the youthful negro, the fight figures to be a highly dramatic, dynamic 'duel. /Caution on eithef side could prolong the tight and disappoint the thousands anticipating a repetition of the Dempsey-Firpo brawl. It Will be a terrific jolt, in fact, if one or the other isn't flattened long before the 15rround limit. -The best .guess is that the fight Will last not more than six or seven l rounds. Baer's main hopes rest in a>) early onslaught that will overpower the negro, weaken his defense ajrjd provide the opening for a * f;j|iishijig -attack. •$"he (CaUfornian has made no s^pret of this battle plan, It would seem he has no alternative. Baer has not the speed, the stamina or tjje boxing ability to cope with Ljouis in a drawn-out engagement. The negro's qhances, if he weath- erg th§ opening blast, should increase with the bell for each succeeding round. Louis can afford to bile, hi? time.

The Bears, everyone of cameras and receive the paternal tl»em Mexicans, will be the light warnings of the boxing fathers. The Louis camp, it seemed, was not likely to be in any mood for characteristic wisecracks from Baer. In advance the negro's managers said they would seek official action to prevent the use of "artifical stimulants" in Baer's corner. '• So much talks has been circulated that Baer would resort to "roughhouse" tactics from the outset that the commissioners were primed to deliver some solemn warnings. So pronounced was the agitation along tin-ear alley last night respecting Baer's possible plan of battle that Jack Dempsey said he might reconsider acting as one of the Cal- Ifornian's seconds. The general belief was that Dampsey, a stockholder in the Baer combination, would go through with his original plan, but the old "manassa mauler" was described as highly perturbed by the suggestion he would influence Max to employ unfair tactics. Baer's board of strategy had a session with Dempsey last night,' shortly after the Californian's arrival by train from his camp at Speculator, N. Y. Louis remained at his quarters in Pompton Lakes, N. J., until this morning. Gates to the Yankee stadium were to ppen at 3 p. m. The preliminary bouts, including a semi-final between Max's brother, Buddy Baer and Ford Smith, Montana heavyweight, start at 7 p. m. The main bout, which will be broadcast over a National Broadcasting company hookup, was set for 8 p, m. Central Standard time. MAJOR LEAGUE fliy The Associated Prcea.) National League.

PRINCETON, N. J., Sept. 24 (/P)— Although the surface evidence is all to the contrary, Coach H. O. (Fritz) Crisler is so pessimistic about Princeton's football outlook this year that he'll be startled if the Tigers win a single game. They're tagging him "Fritz the Fatalist." His squad numbers more than 70 candidates. By the time it is pared down for the opening game with Perm Oct. 5, he will be three deep in every position with most of the material veterans from last year's campaign. He has all the man, power he Can handle, but he thinks the squad is not so promising as a unit as it was a year ago. The graduation of last year's captain and center, Mose Kalbaugh, left a gap in the lineup that has Crisler worried. Crlcler hasn't revised or added to his attacking plans. Virtually all plays will be from short plant and single wing-back formations. Princeton used a lot of laterals last year, and Crisler said even more will be attempted this season. "It really isn't .a system," he said. "In fact.I don't believe in systems. Systems can't win for you. Winning football calls for rugged blocking, good tackling, and hard running." The tentative lineup for the opening game is as follows: Hugh MacMillan and Gil Lea, ends; George Stoess and Fred Hitter, tackles; Johnny Weller and Tom Montgomery, guards; Johnny Bliss, center; Ken Sandbach, quarterback; Garry Levan and Homer Spofford, halfbacks, and Captain "Pepper" Constable, fullback.

Texas League Crown Won By Oklahoma City OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 24 The Oklahoma; City Indians stood at the peak of their Texas league career today—undisputed champions of the loop. The hard-hitting, tight-fielding ball club, welcome successor to the squad which finished in the league cellar in 1933 and 1934, lashed out at Beatimont here last night, won a smashing 6-2 victory, and attained the championship which is decided by the 4 out of 7 Shaughnessy series. No other club could grumble. The Indians finished oh top of the percentage standings at the end of the regular season. Never more than a few ,gam,es out o| .the le?(d, they beat the hustling Beaumont Exporters in the stretch drive, and made short work pf 'Tulsa in the first bracket of the playoff between the four upper half teams. Today 'they were eager for the season's Wg finale—the pixie series With the Southern association winner. WfaJIe New Orleans and Atlanta fight' it out for the association championship, the Indians are wearing out balls, bats, and gloves in practice for the "Dixie"—and the percentage split which will be the players' due. The game last night, which gave the tribe the required four victories, while Beaumont was taking only one playoff gsme, was decided in the first inning. Joe Hare, starting flinger for the Exporters, was knocked out of the box in the initial frame. Four hits brought four runs, and while the subsequent proceedings were of interest to the 8,500 cash customers, they meant little as far as the outcome was concerned. Ware replaced Hare, and held the Tribe to five hits for the rest of the game. "Long John" Niggeling, slender Oklahoma City hurler, went the route, and issued eight base hits —one less than his mates collected off Hare and Ware. Beaumont tallied in the fourth and eighth, while the Indians built up their lead with single runs in the second and sixth. EL PASO HIGH DUE TO BEAT ~ BOWIE FOR DISTRICT 4 TITLE EL PASO, Sept, 24.

J., Sept. 24.—Joe Louis should'win tonight's fight with Max Baer by psychological probabilities that score more than two i to one in the negro's favor. 1;. The greatest probability is Louis to win by a: technical knockout any time after the ninth round, or take the decision. 2. The second probability Is Louis to knock Baer out in a middle, round 3. There is an outside chance for Baer to knock out Louis within three rounds. These conclusions are based on some psychological forces and personality traits directly affecting the fighters as I have seen them in the training camps. In punching ability Louis on the i for his trainers know he must win by a knockout. The strength of Louis' battle plan lies in the exquisite relationship between him and the cunning Blackburn in his corner. Blackburn thinks and plans, Louis fights accordingly. Baer is a unique personality. There are certain factors in him which cannot be predicted accurately. Blackburn may send Louis out in the sixth to deliver a knockout. Louis may come back unsuccessful. What would happen to Joe Louis' mind if he failed several times? He might become less confident. What is more dangerous, he might lose faith in the man in his corner. Then we may see a highly irritated Louis, unable to rise to an emergency which is not figured out by Blackburn. In such a state of the battle an unknown but potentially significant factor may rnak^ Louis' situation still harder—namely Dempsey acting for Baer as a second. They have a similarity in style, they may "click" so that Dempsey supplies the advice Baer needs. There are many other factors. But weighing all the evidence, the ave a^e" hit's b harto But n" his most probab.e outcome is Louis to flashes of attack, when in his full wm unless Baer can knock him out strength, Baer may hit the harder, m the first three rounds. Max Baer is a "spontaneous" personality, that is, one who does his best when meeting the unexpected! and the emergency. He may be expected to enter the | ring over excited and tense. The excitement will be the effect of his well wishers and will be worse if his trainer permits anyone except himself to be with Baer in the dressing room just before the fight. If Baer takes the plan of battle most natural to him, he will work himself up to quick flashes of attack. These are estimated, from watching him in training, as lasting nearly a minute. He may stretch them at best to two minutes ,but the more he extends his spurts, the more he is paralyzed in his efforts immediately afterward, and the greater risk he takes. Baer is likely to open the fight with a wild attack. Louis, coming out silent, with an "Indian" mask, is apt to measure Baer carefully. After about two minutes you Will find Baer breathing heavily, relaxing to refresh himself. In the second and third rounds Baer's furious spurts are likely to be shorter and weaker. Louis, meanwhile, should gradually gain momentum. Baer's emotional makeup, which causes him to expend vast energy in his flashes of attack, would be better suited to rounds of less than three minutes. But for Louis, who takes his rest between punches, the standardized layout of rounds is just right. Baer's flashes can bo most efficient during the first two rounds. He has then the knock Louis out. best chance to The dapjage d,one by Louis in the middle , way be so great that Baer, trying in the second half of the flgtot to - -is too a pew series of to dp himself more jh.8 M3jen ol Pampans Figure In Altus' Win Over Decatur Carl Smith and Bill Haner were big shots in the Altus Junior college 12 to 0 victory over the Decatur Baptist college in a game played at Altus on Friday night. Wayne Smith of Vernon scored both touchdowns. Pampa's Haner was responsible for the first counter when he came out of the lino and took a lateral pass from the ball toter and romped Pittsburgh Jumps OH Champs for 12 i To 0 Victory j By HUGH S. FULLERTON Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer When Charley Grimm, manager of the Cubs, traded big Jim Weaver to Pittsburgh last winter, he probably didn't realize that the oversize right hander would pitch Chicago into the National league pennant. Weaver did that stunt yesterday when he blanked the Challenging Cardinals with four hits, and his Pirate mates pounded out a 12 to 0 victory over the 1934 world champions. That came as near as possible to tossing the pennant right Into the Cubs' laps, for the only Way St. Louis can win the flag outright Is to trim Chicago five games straight in their final series, which starts tomorrow. The Cardinal defeat, while the Cubs enjoyed the first of two days of idlness after their 18-game winning streak, put the Cards 3'A games behind Chicago. If they beat the Pirates today, the Cardinals can gain a tie for the flag by beating the Cubs four out of five. If they lose to Pittsburgh, it will eliminate the possibility of a tie and require five straight or nothing. While Weaver was subduing the Cards in brilliant fashion, the Buccaneers, led by Floyd "Pep" Young, rattled a quintet of Cardinals fling- ers for 16 hits. The third place Giants lost their outside chance of tying Chicago but retained the possibility that they might beat out St. Louis for second place. The Terrymen split a twin bill with the Braves, winning the opener 3 to 2 as Carl Hubbell edged out Ed Brandt in a mound duel, but taking a 9 to 7 setback when Frank Babler and Roy Parmelee proved ineffective. Brooklyn held sixth place safe from the Phillies by pounding Jim Bivin and Orville Jorgens for an eight-run seventh-inning to win the second half of a doubleheader 8-4. Johnny Moore's tenth-inning homer gave the Phils the opener 4-2. The only American league game saw the Yankees extend their winning streak to five straight with a 5 to 1 victory over the Senators. 18-Year Rule Is Disapproved By District One Tlio new 18-year eligibility rule for Texas high school athletes was unanimously disapproved at a meeting of District 1 superintendents and coaches in Amarillo yesterday afternoon.
