NEW YORK The world’s two top rankuig heavyweight fighters were just plain buck privates m Uncle Sam s army Saturday. Following the trail of Champion Joe Louis who enlisted nearly two month* ago. Pittsburgh Billy Conn. the curly haired Inah jmungster who came closer than any other fighter to knocking the crown off the Bomber's head, turned up at army recruiting offices Sstur- day and signed up as a private for the duration. Along with the Smokytown boxing ace waa his long-time friend and bodyguard during important fights. Joe Becker a Pittsburgh detective, who enlisted with Billy. Military Battle. Thus, the next major hea\*y- weight championship fight, in which Joe and Billy are expected to tangle in June, will come nght out of the military service. Full of as many surprisea as the night he went 13 roun<ifc with Louis last June—and waa well out m front until Joe s big guns f i n a 11 y caught—Billy Joined the army only five days after taking his phyrrcal examination to become a member of the naval re#er\*e.

Saturday’s action was as secret as s military maneuvre. Not even Conn's closets fr?cnds knew he was in town. He appeared at the recniiting office, was sworn in by Col. John F D»»ye and then told a few friends what he had done. The abdicated light-heavv- weight champion gave his occupation as "professional athlete. and said he appeared at the recruiting office with the consent of his wife and local draft board.
