Apparently not for he clamored for the fight as loudly as anyone Did Joe hear a call too? Is this a party wire? Delayed Punch Too Anyway the King Is not going to worry about what Louis beard or what he didn’t bear He is going to train very hard for the fight Training will begin Immediately if not later The King was saying to Hans Blrkle only a short while ago as he leaned his head on Birkle’s shoul der In the middle of tho ring that this Louis is a set-up for a fella with a roundhouse right "The trouble with these other guys that fought Louis” reasoned the Kingfish “is that they tried to hit him too soon His defense was up When I throw my delayed punch his defense will be up and then down again before I land" - 1 ‘v V ''' ' VV--''A ' Here are the Utah tennis champions of 1935 Top left to right Worth Oswald of Berkeley Cal men’s doubles John Murio San Francisco men’s doubles Verona McGhie Salt Lake City women’s doubles Dr Esther Bartosh Los Angeles women’s singles and doubles Below is an action shot of Bobby Riggs Los Angeles junior phenom who won both men's singles and junior singles titles by defeating Joe Hunt another southern California junior star in “double” final MONDAY’S SCHEDULI Men's ginalea LaMar Quiver va Owen Him Victory No 1 I p m Lyman Dalnti vi William Pauh Victory No 1 4 p m Hugh Watson vi Tono Susukl Pioneer No 1 8 p m Fred Davies vs Ernest Barlow Victory No 3 f p m Seth Youm vs Alvin Spencer Fifth Avenue No 1 1 p m Jack Leary ve Melvin Jordan Victory No 1 6 p m Bob Benton vs Ernest Bourns Fifth Avenue No 3 1 p m c Purdte Daines vs Gardner Bowler Vic tory No 3 4 p m Francis Shields va Frtnk Dunes !
