But Coast Guardsman Gus Lcsne- vich—the light heavyweight champion of the world— can tell you how Uie gentle art of messing: things up once reached a record high. Poor Gus' trouble sprang from that running battle of , the stiff necks between the National Boxing association rind the states associated with the New York State Boxing commission. Tho N-B-A recognizes one list of champions — and the Now York group has another slate. In some cases they both call the same man the champion of his division. Heavyweight King Joo Louis is one of those. But in other instances,, the N-B-A lists one man as the titlehokler, and tho New York group maintains tiiat some other guy Is entitled to wear the ring purple. This leads to incidents like, the one that occurred when Juan Zurita of Mexico fought in Now York. According to the N-B-A Juan is tho lightweight champion of tho world and all the other planets. But in New York, soldier Montgomery is the 135-pound king. This V That By DUKE KA2LAUSKAS . .. (1-porLs Editor) ' » ^f0.r+*^f^r**f*t*rr+-+*+-f-f+r***f*^ . When Paul Richards is catching for the Detroit Tigers you don't need a program to identify the Tiger backstop. For when Paul goes down behind the bat and puts up his big mitt he stretches his right leg straight out instead of squatting on both legs. Paul is another one of the old- timers who have come back. And ;ii far .is the Tigers .ire concerned he got back at the right time. Detroit fans and writers give ihc SG-ycar-old Richards a large share of the credit for turning Hal Newhouser from a temperamental kid into '.a twenty-game winner. Eighteen years of professional baseball have taught Paul how to be a combination catcher, coach, and mother to the pitchers he handles. When Richards came to thn Tigers last year after seven years with '.he Atlanta Crackers he was supposed to be a coach. But when the Tigers run out of catchers. Paul put the tools 0:1 again—and he's been the first-stringer ever since. WANT ADS GET YOU WHAT YOU WANT!

When Billy Conn shucked off his light-hoavywoight crown to take a shot at Joe Louis in 1941, the division was temporarily without a loader. Then the N-B-A ran ;L tournament to choose the man who would take over Conn's title. Lesnovich, moved into the brawl, and when ' the slugging was over tho National Boxing association told tho world to take a look at the now light-heavy weight champion—Gus Lesnevich. That was fine with the beak basher from Clifton, N. J. Ho liked being-champion. But he ,'ilso wanted to be champion of the four states that still hold out and said that they wouldn't recognize him unless he licked Tami 'Mauricllo. Tho states affiliated with New York said that the N-B-A tournament didn't moan a thing. If Lesnevich wanted to be called champ in New York he could fight tough Tami with tho crown going to the winner. ; ' ,So" Gus fought young Mauricllo.
