Jack Johnson Just l)on't Like Louie 9 s Fight Style Brownies, Colored Base Ball Team, Didn't Even Hear the Fight Jack Johnson, only other negro besides Joe Louis to hold the world's heavyweight title, was also the only former champion to predict a Schmeling win over Louis Sports writers have suggested that Lil 1 Arthur may be a bit jealous of the Brown Bomber. But that isn't the reason which members of tha Algona Brownies, local colored team, say caused Johnson to pick Louis to be defeated. The Brownies, incidentally, did not hear the broadcast of Louis Schmeling "fight". Although most members of their race were listening somewhere to the account, the Brownies had a ball game to play Get Ready for the Fourth Your holiday will mean much more if you are properly prepared for the occasion.

The ball players said that Jack Johnson didn't pick Louis to win because "he all don't like Loui's style of fightin'. " They scouted any suggestion that the element of jealousy might be involved. Another belief which the ball players disproved was that all colored people had bet their shirts on the outcome of the epic fight. Danny Tnylor. right fielder and heavy sticker, however, "made a little" on admitted he it. Questioned as to his opinion of the relative merits of Louis and Johnson he said, "Shucks, Louis would put John- -DII down in no time." "This hcah Henry Armstrong might be pound foh pound a better fighter though.' Peewee Pequez, diminutive pitching ace confirmed White's opinion that it was merely dislike of the champion's fighting style thnt caused Johnson to pick Schmelin^. And it was "pretty hahd to say which was the better fighter, Louis or Armstrong." Manager Lowe, of the Brownies, was too busy to answer anv foolish private property, because they want more money.

"Guess I keep on throwing, my place Is already mowed."
