Tfe CHKA&o CUSS Cl£AN-Up' 320 By ALAN GOULD • ' Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, Sept. 25. (fP)— It looks like a non-stop flight to the top of the pugilistic heap for the brown bomber. There remained today not the slightest doubt of the two-fisted greatness of Joe Louis, least of all In the minds of upward of 90,000 onlookers who saw the 21-year old Detroit negro on his bridal evening , mow down the once magnificent , Max Baer with a punching blast as : deadly as machine gun fire. Mercilessly, methodically, never wasting a blow and rarely slacken- t ' ing a punching pace that has hac! .-. few equals in heavyweight history, • Louis knocked out the former cham- , pion In the fourth round of a 15* round match that revived all the '• „ glamour of the prize ring in a near . million dollar spectacle at the Yankee stadium. Baer not only was completely out•-1 classed but made the fatal mistake r of trying to box Louis. He was knocked down three times, twice in the third round, where the bell saved him as he sat blinking on the . floor. He was counted out while swaying on one knee near the end of the.fourth round. It was the greatest heavyweight show but also one of the most one- sided, top flight heavyweight matches since the famous Tex Rickard died and .the great Jack Dempsey retired. In 11 minutes and 50 seconds the youthful negro punched Baer into a bloody, senseless wreck; a battered figure still trying to muster the pre- i tense of his once marvelous powers <• of resistance, fading out of the pic- j ture in defeat with magnificent ges- , tures of futility. r Hit 500 Times > It seemed that Louis must have V hit nearly 500 times with as ; vicious a two-handed onslaught as i any first-class heavyweight has ab«' sorbed since . Dempsey slaughtered I' Jess Willard at Toledo in 1919 or J hammered down Lius Angel Firpo at [• the Polo Grounds in 1923. f It was, in the words of a late critic ; of the fight business, "modified ,..• murder" in every sense of the word; r a "killing" so devastating and com-, plete as to leave not a single ques- ;. tion for dispute. . . (•. On his honeymoon today, upward t of $200,000 richer, and taking it all '<•, with the same coolness that charac- , terizes his amazing ring workman- r ship, Joe Louis seemingly has no iff worries about a pugilistic future that l- contemporar-y word artists are ! J painting : . in the gaudiest possible /jjf hues. 7 . •:? ,'vi 21st Knockout '-. The brown bomber's twenty-fifth '£ consecutive victory and his 21st ',"< knockout since he turned profes- £.' sional scarcely 14 months ago cap"• ped the climax of the most spectac- '_. ular .march since Dempsey waded J through all opposition to the world championship. ; The title held by the ex-stevedore, 1 James J. Braddock, is Louis' goal, •" • but it'probably will be a year before he gets the chance to claim it f for his race for the first time since i. Jack Johnson ruled the fistic ;,- heights. ';• Schmeling Next \. A match with Max Schmeling, the ;;. German who once wore the heavy• weight crown, is the next major goal '' for the negro. Promoter Mike Jacobs, K heir to Rickard's mantle, said he , plans to match Louis and Schmeling '•for a 15-iound fight at either of |'"New York's big ball parks next i" June, the winner' to box Braddock ,: for the title in September. !.' "Louis told me.he wants to fight >: as often as possible," said Jacobs, ••. who already has the negro under I contract for two more years with » an option on his fighting services ••. until 1940. '• "He says that getting married !' now also means he will have to keep ;'. busy but it's going to be tough H finding opponents." '. For those who saw Louis crash • Baer, there isn't the slightest doubt i. that the chocolate soldier can and • will whip Schmeling and then "take" l the gallant Braddock. }';' Baer was to provide the big test, j demonstrate whether Louis could i "take it" and make the going /tougher for Louis than all the other ^fighters he has met combined. ; Max may have had fury in his i heart, but there was not dynamite , • in his fists. Instead of setting a i' whirlwind pace, he came out cau- ' ;tiously. Instead of slugging, he tried ' :to box as masterful a young boxer , as the ring has developed in a i generation. ' Blood Spurts j He absorbed, as he said he would, i all .that Louis could throw at him, *,'but even concrete can resist T. N. T. • only for a brief time. I After taking a terrific lacing for , two rounds, Baer crumpled under I the negro's two-fisted fire and sag| ged slowly to the floor for the first j time midway in the third round. The L bipod through which he had grinned 1 insolently, disdainfully in earlier J melees, dripped from h}s face, now 'i a' grotesque mask. t As he squatted, the curly-haired fi Callfornian managed another smile, I and With the instinct of the great > :'; showman that he has always been, J waved to the ciowd that was on .'I its f,<*t, yplUng for the "kill."

POpB THIS OMB OUT AM) MN fFKB TKIP ON A.W DePAKfrl&ilT Bears Defeat Wink Gridders In as - 6 Game -9 and toppled again. He was saved this time by the bell, at the count of four. Frantically Jack Dempsey and other handlers told the battered former champion to "keep punching," but the old fire was gone. Max knew it and 'so did everyone else. Louis, still .in no great hurry, methodically stalked his man, shifting his crushing left hooks to the body, blows that wiped the last vestiges of a grin from Baer's bruised, bleeding face. Once Max flicked a back-hand blow to the bomber's face. The referee admonished him but it was unimportant. Soon Louis swept in again, smashing two lefts to the head, then a right that put Baer down for the last time. Max's eyes blinked. He was on one knee, swaying a bit. He didn't hear the count and he didn't seem to care. He was stiji swaying when Referee Arthur Donowan swung his arm down for the tenth time. Baer was "out" for the first time in his career, in every sense of the word. There was little or no doubt about the outcome from the first round, when Louis drew first blood with sharp left hooks to the nose and mouth, then backed Baer into a neutral corner and gave him a two- handed lashing that had the crowd wild. All Baer did was to demonstrate he could still "take it" and grin. He took plenty, he kept grinning and when the bell rang he squared his shoulders, patted Louis patronizingly on the back and stalked to his corner. Only twice did the former champion flash the sort of, punching fury that battered down Schmeling and Prlmo Camera. Midway in the first round, after being stung by the aomber's sharpshootUig, Max let fly with both hands. He landed hard ;o the head but yielded quickly to the negro's counter/blast. In the closing moments of the second round Baer let loose his most spectacular attack. Rushing Louis to the ropes, Max flailed away :Ustily. He jolted Joe with another looping right. The bell rang but Baer didn't near it. He punched furiously, trying desperately to land a decisive alow. He did deliver his hardest wallops before the referee could stop the overtime slugfest, but Louis trotted to his corner unhurt. All told, Baer didn't land a half dozen solid blows. His announcement afterward that he is through with the ring came as no shock to those who witnessed the failure of his attempted comeback. For supreme nonchalance, however, Baer's career contains nothing to equal the latest achievement of Louis. The negro not only conceded all of Baer's requests for special gloves, more hand bandages and tape, but j capped the clmax by marrying his Chicago sweetheart, Marva Trotter, scarcely two hours before going to the stadium to face the greatest crowd that'has ever seen a sports event in New York. Receipts fell below expectations of another million-dollar gate,, after a lapse of eight years, but the gross total of $932,944, collected from 84,83} cash, customers, marked a re* markable fistic comeback as well as a new "high"' f,or any prize fight since the depression. The gipe of the orqij(4 vw sw Thirty players will accompany Bowie high school coaches here foi their game with the Pampa Harvesters at Harvester field Fridaj night. Although light, the Beat's showed plenty of football knowledge and determination when they defeated the big Wink Wildcats lasl Friday by a score of 25 to 6. What the Bears lack in size, they make up in fight and speed. The Wink paper compared the Bears to a bunch of jackrubbits, scooting here and there over the turf with footballs under their arms. The pape' stated that it would advocate a change in the team title from Bears to some more appropriate name. Although doped to "take" th Mexicans by several touchdowns the Harvesters were warned before a hard practice session yesterdaj thnt they shouldn't become cocky Coaches Odus Mitchell and J. C Prejean reminded . the squad tha size didn't always count on a football team. Pass defense came in for an horn of attention during yesterday's practice session. The little Mexicans are reported to throw the ball far and with deadly accuracy into the arms of speedy pass receivers. Last year's passing combination of Montoya to Hernandez will appear again this year. The two boys have been working together for three years The Bears also are said to have a new receiver in Nieto, a freshman. The Harvesters will flash a changed offense against the Bears on Friday night. Several new plays, including sweeping end runs, latera! passes, and line plays have beer given the boys this week. Bowie is said to use a tricky double wingback formation, working fast criss-cross plays and laterals Unless the Bowie line holds,i?|ian- dllng the ball behind the line might prove costly. The Harvesters showed against Lawton that they 'don't mind getting the ball carrier 01 passer behind the scrimmage.'^ine Officials have been selected but their duties will not be assigned until approved by the visiting head coach. The game will be in charge of Hicks (Baylor); Barrett (Georgia); and Masters (Arkansas). Mobeetie and McLean to Play Thursday Ni^ht M'LEAN, Sept. 25.—Tlie game between the McLean Tigers and Mobeetie Hornets, scheduled for Friday night at McLean, has been changed to Thursday night at the same location. It will be the first conference game of the 1935 season for McLean. The Tigers have two wins under their belts. They opened the season with n 33 to 0 victory over the Canadian Wildcats when Coach Allen his squad of 24 players. They met tougher opposition last Friday night when it took everything to defeat Panhandle, 7 to 6. VERNON, QUANAH AND WICHITA FALLS FAVORED WICHITA PALLS, Sept. 25 (IP)— Three teams share the spotlight of Favoritism in district 5A as the five members dig deeper into the jrogram of preparedness for the championship war to be launched Friday night, September 27, with Wichita Falls at Childress. The three early-season favorites are Vernon, Quanah, and Wichita ?alls, with Childress and Electra both considered strong enough not only to kick over the dope bucket nit possibly to win championship wnors. Wichita Palls leads in lettermen vlth 14 returning veterans, but all are players who lettered only in 1934. A well balanced line headed by aptain Whitlow at center and strong ends in Duncan and Corbell s the most promising part of Coach Ted Jeffries' club. His backfield, containing five veterans, is none too lire. Quanah will have ah all-veteran ;eam in its opener against Electnt; T, starting eleven conceded to be .econd to none in the district. But Coach Dan Stallworth again is shy on reserves. The letterman back- ield of C. Edmondson, C. P. Ed- nondson, Whited, and Wood appears on paper the smoothest In the circuit. Stallworth also -is equipped vith veterans at all line positions. Vernon starts with nine letter 'eternns,' including E. C. Thomas, the district's outstanding defensive jerfonner last year who has been shifted from end to the backfield. The 185-pouhder specializes in power drives. Coach Heinie Weir's ;eam is well equipped with veterans in all departments, including Burch, Duckworth, and Matney as Thomas' backfield supporters. Coach Joe Gibson at Childress has put together a strong and veteran front wall, but he has had to rebuild his backfield following the loss of all four of his 1934 starters. No part of the Bobcat picture is as impressive as the ends where Co- captain James Andrews and J. W. Helms, both stars of the first magnitude last season, will hold forth. A new coaching regime headed by George Blair, who has had seven years experience as a member of the Sherman high school staff, has moved in at Electra to continue the Notre Dame football launched in the one year term of Eck Curtis Blair has an even dozen lettermer. and almost as many squadmen of almost equal ability. Electra looms as a true darkhorse. LEAGUE (By The Associated Press.) National League. Batting: Vaughan, Pirates, .386; Medwick, Cardinals, .355. Runs; Galan, Cubs, 130; Medwick Cardinals, 129.

UP)— The University of Washington may be a factor in Pacific coast football this season, but Coach Jimmy Phelan Isn't doing any precampalgn shouting about it. "We will be lucky to win a ball ;ame or two with the material we liave this year," Phelan growled. 'You can't win in this league without reserves—and have you seen any?" "Why, we havn't got a chance. Our schedule is as tqugh as any and our squad is as weak as they make 'err* After you put the first string lineup on the field there aren't any ends or backs left to relieve the regulars." What Phelan said may have been a little far-fetched but he did lose a great backfield in Burl Bufkin, Matt Mucynskl, Art Ahonen and Paul -Sulkosky and two linemen in Chuck Mucha and and Woody Ullin. • He still has a smart, booming first string team, however, and i£ injuries don't get the best of the regulars, the experts look for Washington to jive the bigger squads an interest- Ing battle. One thing, the'backfield is very versatile with right and left footed kickers and passers, and every play will be screened with deception. In Elmer Logg, quarterback, Phelan has one of the outstanding punters and place-kickers on the coast. In Jimmy Cain he has a great running back and passer .Byron Haines kicks and passes from the left side and can run in either direction. Ed Nowokroski is a steam-roller fullback. The schedule: Sept. 28, Idaho at Seattle; Oct. 5, Santa Clara at Seattle; Oct. 19, Washington State at Pullman; Oct. 26, Stanford at Seattle; Nov. 2, Montana at Seattle; Nov. 9, California at Berkeley; Nov. 23, Oregon at Seattle; Dec. 7, Southern California at Los Angeles.

Rangers to Play Dumas on Friday PERRYTON, Sept. 25.—The Rangers of the North Plains will meet the Dumas Demons on Friday afternoon at Dumas. Having suffered a set-back at the. hands of the Borger 'Bulldogs to the tune of 14-0, the Rangers are hard at work filling up the gaps that showed up in the Borger game. The Dumas eleven were runners up in district 1 last year, having lost the district championship to the powerful Hereford team, 6-0. The year before the Demons, under Coach Denman, won the district title from the Groom Tigers where the Ranger; coach, Otis Burk, was employed. The Rangers met and defeated the Demons last season, 12-14, so the Ranger mentor and his flock of sophomores are up against a tough assignment on next Friday. MIES WORRY COACHES OF SOUTHWEST GRIDIRON TEAMS passed in fistic annals only by the turnouts for the twp Pempsey- Tunney duels, The "gate" was ceeded only by five of (By The Associated Press.) Expressions of both optimism and doubt, worry over injuries, specula- lion on new plays and other items that occupy the minds of football roaches were scattered over the Southwest conference today. Coach Jack Chevigny looked upon his University of Texas Longhorns as a well-trained squad and ready to meet the Texas A. & I. Javelinas Saturday. Chevigny said ha was gratified at the progress shown by senior stars. At Texas Christian university, Coach L. R .(Dijtch) Meyer seemed optimistic when he announced that reserves likely would make up the Hrrned Frogs' backfield when they meet the North Texas Teachers college Eagles Saturday. It appeared certain that Jimmy Lawrence, hard^ driving halfback, would, be given a chance to rest his legs which have been bothering htm, since'thp opening scrimmage, A Uttle doubt had-qrept tato the Rice owJs,' gani scrimmage, which was staged without four varsity players.

Emmett Kriel, starting tackle, was put out of the game for at least two weeks by an attack of malaria, as Coach Morley Jennings put his charges through several new plays in preparation for Hardin-Simmons at Waco Saturday night.

UP)—Joe Unite and Max Baer set off along different paths today, one to climb higher toward the fistic heights, the other to find rest far from the glaring lights of a ring. Louis in his dressing room last night after knocking out Baer laid plans for future conquests with his fists. Baer said he was through, that he wasn't cut out to be a fighter anyway and that he would retire to the western plains to raise cattle. Although severely battered, the Californian still grinned after he hod reached his dressing room, lit a cigarette and ordered a bottle of beer. Even as he had taken Louis' blasts in the ring, he took the humiliation of defeat with good nature. He really enjoyed the post- fight festivities. His left eye was bruised, the cheekbone on the same side was puffed a little, and his right hand thumb was swollen. "The thumb hurts some but it didn't have anything to do with it," he said. "You know fellows I wasn't cut out to be a fighter. I've had my fling and now I'm through. "My thumb hurt before the fight. As soon, as I checked in- I tried to give it the needle but the stuff wouldn't take. "Louis is a great fighter. He's not the best but he's young and probably will go a long way. I hope so and wish him luck. Joe isn't the hardest puncher I've met, however. He was Eddie Sims, the fellow I fought in Cleveland a few months ago. "How do you think Louis will make out against Braddock?" he was asked. "I don't know. I wouldn't want to say. Personally I don't think they'll ever fight." In the other dressing room, Louis was as phlegmatic and passive as ever. He had become a bridegroom a few hours before he stepped into the ring. Waiting for him at home was his bride. • Like Louis, she shunned ostentation. She had sat 25 rows back at the fight, and she had gone home on a street car, the ride costing her a nickel of nearly $200,000 her spouse was to bring home. Joe was impressed chiefly with the durability of the Baer chin. "Whew, but that Max Baer has one tough chin. I mean he's got one tough chin," he said. Asked if he wanted to meet Schmeling next, he said: "Okay by me if beating him means Braddock." NATIONAL LEAGUE Results Yesterday Philadelphia 0-6, New York 6-7.

Crackers Beat Pelicans 4 to 1 ATLANTA, Sept. 25 (IP)— The Atlanta Crackers were one up on New Orleans today in their championship series for the Southern association baseball crown. Behind 'the effective hurling of young Bud Thomas, the Crackers took a 4 to 1 decision from the Pelicans here last night in the opening game of „ the final round of'the Shaughnessy pjaypff. ~ wiimjr pf the $-gam,e j$ayc First Game of Five Will Be Played Today Associated Ptess Sports Writer The Dean brothers have found a task that measures up respectably to Dizzy's estimate of their capabilities. With plenty of rest for their pitching arms, they will be thrown into the path of the oncoming Cubs, sweeping along on the crest of 18 straight victories. Paul faced the first assignment today, with four days of rest, and Dizzy probably will take up the task tomorrow with the same amount of leisure behind him. The Cards face a tough task, for they must sweep their five game series with the Cubs to haul in the pennant and it will take four to tie. The Cards have won 12 and lost five to Chicago this season but that was before the Cubs soared into the lead by three full games. The Cards showed they hadn't burned all their powder yesterday when they came back from the humiliating 12-0 defeat of the day before to belt the Pirates 11-2. Wild Bill Hallahan held the opposition in check with three hits while his mates collected 11 hits, including homers by Jim Collins and Leo Durocher. St. Louis sewed the game up in the first inning, Collins' 23rd homer of the season scoring Medwick ahead of him after King had walked, stole second and scored on Medwlck's safety. The disillusioned Giants took both games of a doublehender from the Phillies, 6-0, and 7-6. Al Smith pitched tight ball for the Giants in the first, but seven errors by the Phillies contributed to the second victory. Mel Ott hit his 31st homer .of the season in the first game. The Brooklyn Dodgers pushed the Braves a little deeper into the cellar by taking both ends of their double bill 5-3 and 6-5. The second game went 11 innings. The New York Yankees defeated Washington 14-6, "pounding Bump Hadley and Olin Rogers for 16 hits. The Cleveland Indians collected 15. hits to defeat the Detroit Tigers 14-7. The Tigers, with the pennant in their belts, allowed the Indians to have what little satisfaction they got from the victory. Three rookie pitchers were throwing balls all over the lot as the Red Sox downed the Athletics twice, 8-2 and 6-5. The Browns took both games in a double-header with the White Sox, 3-0, and 6-3. ®- (lly The Associated Press.) Bill Hallahan, Cards: Kept Cards in pennant race by checking Pirates with three hits. Odell Hale, Indians; Drove in five runs against Tigers with . homers and triple.

Joe Strlpp and Nick Tremark, Dodgers: Stripp got three hits, including double, in first and Tre- mark drove in winning run in. llth as Braves were beaten in double bill.

WOULDN'T FOLLOW HIS ADVICE AND OPEN UP IN BOUT NEW YORK, Sept. 25 (/P)—Jack Dempsey, who seconded his "pal," Max Baer, thinks there is no heavyweight in the sight with a chance to beat Joe Louis. "Louis is good, there's no doubt about that," said the former world champion today. "It will take a really great fighter to beat him and there's no one around now capable of turning the trick." Keenly disappointed by his pro- tege's showing, Dempsey declared at "Baer is all washed up." "I told him he ought to quit," added the old mauler. "He simply hasn't got it any more. "I sent Baer out there to fight, not box, but he wouldn't open up, except in one or two brief, spurts; Between rounds I urged him to keep slugging. He didn't do it and he couldn't even explain why he wasn't following instructions. "At the finish he was knocked absolutely senseless. He didn't know where he was when we dragged him back to the corner." Asked what he thought his own chances against Louis would have been, in his prime, Dempsey grinned and replied: "Well, I'd have kept punching him, doing the best I could." The former champion left the impression he thought he might have had quite a pleasant punching party with the Brown Bomber. His parting shot, however, was: "I'm glad I'm in the restaurant business now."
