THE THIS DARK-HUED PICTURE OF BROWN BOMBER IS JUST BALLYHOO OK CLOSER INSPECTION METHODIST GRID ACES ARE POLICEMEN AT CENTENNIAL DALLAS; June 9. '(/P)—Holders of the Fort Worth baseball franchise, clinging to an indifferent club imbedded in the basement, may lose money but they won't give the club over to science. At least, that apparently was their answer yesterday to a pair of Gladewater sportsmen who wanted to buy the Cats. . . Oil man R. W. Burnett of Gladewater and partner Claude Lee, co-owners of Gladewater's successful East Texas league team, got nowhere. . . They were ready to take over the franchise with an option to buy it lock, stock and barrel at the end of the season. Burnett and Lee had said, if they obtained the franchise, they would hurry six of their star Gladewater hands to the Fort Worth park and replace them with a half dozen Panthers. . . Which would almost convert the Panther team into a Gladewater farm. . . Burnett pointed to Gladewater's 35 victories in 45 starts in upholding plausibility of his intentions. President Roy Westbrooks of the Panthers squelched the deal. . . Said his associates would be willing to dispose of the club only if assurance was given 'that the new owners would give the city a winning team. . .' Added he didn't think the Gladewater proposition gave that assurance. Four of the biggest "cops" on the Centennial Exposition beat are Southern Methodist football players. . . .

BY EDDIE BRIETZ. LAKEWOOD. N. J., June 9 (/Flit really is just too bad about pool- old Joe Louis, isn't it? The Brown Bomber actually is in such terrible shape that it may require three instead of two rounds for him to start the birdies twittering for Herr Max Schmeling in the Yankee Stadium, New York.'June 13. For weeks Promoter Mike Jacobs' high-powered ballyhoo experts have been crying by the column about Louis. He was slow. He was listless, and he was fnt. He wasn't putting any steam behind his punches. He could not duck the half-hearted licks of his sparring partners. He just didn't seem to give a darn. So your correspondent came here today to see the "hollow shell," that once was Louis. Here's the 'Inside Story.' Instead, just as might have been suspected, he found: A sleek, well-conditioned athlete who can do just about what he wants to whenever he pulls on a pair of boxing gloves and climbs into the ring. They said Louis was fat. Well he weighed exactly 198 today and that's about two -pounds less than he'll scale when he gets in against Schmeling. They said he couldn't punch any more. Today he all but knocked the head off of Prank Schildknecht of Kansas City, who was Joe's last amateur opponent and who is now laboring as a sparring partner. "You can see that left coming," said Prank after the work-out, "but you can't do nothing about it. 'Glad I Ain't Max.' "He's the same old Louis. I don't say he can hit any harder than the night he almost killed me in the amateurs, but he's more polished. He knows how to handle himself. Me? I'm glad I ain't Schmeling." Joe does appear a bit listless in his boxing and some of his playmates do not seem to have much .rouble connecting with an occasional right hand belt, but this may be explained by the fact that the legro has been ordered to proceed under wraps. . ' • Otherwise, Louis looks just as ceen, just as well conditioned, just as fast (when speed is necessary) and just as hard to beat as when he trained for Max Baer and Primo Jarnera. John Roxborough, general manager of the Bomber's menage, has the answers to the sob stories of Mr. Jacobs' professional crepe-hangers. He Can Take It. 'Sure, we're holding Joe back," explained Roxborough; who may or may not have been talking out of school. "He's been inactive for five months—the longest he has ever gone without fighting—and he needs work. Do you think he would get it if we let him : go out and knock everybody's block off with the first punch? Why he'd be so slow rounding into form Schmeling might even stay five rounds with him. :We. have a man here who is supposed to be a clever boxer. All we want Joe to do with him is experiment—look 1 for openings,. We have three others known as sockers. Ev- ery'tyne : they:hit Joe we'give three cheers, None of them has hurt him. It' shows he can. take it. The others are reputed to have cast iron'jaws and ta be able to withstand any man's punches. Just wait till I whistle and see wha> Joe does fpi them." The truth of the matter, as you may already have guessed, is that all these SOS calls from the Louis camp are just a part of the good Mr. Jacobs' gigantic ballyhoo plot. The heroic efforts of Signer Francis Albertanti and his assistants to build up Schmeling having fallen somewhat. Hat, .what was more natural than for Mr. Jacobs to order » drive to' tear down Louis? This is proceeding ap^ce. But it doesn't fool the Lakewood visitors who find. Mr.' Jacobs' agents, • with their tongues Ui their cheeks, busy tearing down Joe Louis for a terrific buildup.

BEAUMONT, HOUSTON AND DALLAS STEERS LOSE (l)y The Associated Press) Today's games: Dallas at Galveston (night). Ft. Worth at Houston (night). Oklahoma City at Beaumont. Tulsa at San Antonio (night). The three teams leading the Texas league found tough sledding in their assignments against lesser- rated teams yesterday. Big Jim Moore, who played with Dallas last year, got his sights on one and slapped out a double scoring Binder with the winning run in the thirteenth inning of a well- pitched setto between Dallas and Galveston. Galveston won, 3 to 2 on their home grounds. The league- leading Dallas ball-busters scored their brace of tallies in the second, after which Richmond made them swing at thin air. Galveston's second run in the eighth sent the game into overtime. Tile second-place Beaumont Exporters took n thumping from Oklahoma City, 11 to 3. The Indians punched out 11 hits and made them count for runs, while Beaumonfc was handcuffed after they had scored their three runs in the first frame. Houston, in third place, fared no better at the hands of Fort Worth, who were led into battle by their new manager, Homer Peel. The score was 6 to 5. The winning Cats were behind when three Houston errors and a wild pitch enabled them to score twice, giving them a one-run margin. Another one-run-edge victory was rung up by the Tulsa Oilers, who nosed out San Antonio 3 to 2. The Missions made it interesting in the ninth. Two were out when Garms singled and Harshany hit a' homer. Stein went in for Tulsa and made Gryska force Bettcncourt to end the game. Shell Defeats Sunoco 12 to 9 Led by "Old Man" Trenary, the Shell ball team took a 12 to 9 game from- the Sunoco Sluggers on Sunday afternoon. Trenary collected fcur hits out of five time at bat. Stokes of Shell also helped the cause, with a home run with two men on base. Robbins of the Sluggers brought his team out of a hole with a triple which scored three men. The Sluggers scored their nine runs on five base hits. Shell got the 12 runs on 12 hits. L. B. Nichols Sr., and L. B.

FUU,ERTON, Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer On their Wrijiley field the Chicago Cubs won the 1935 National league pennant, putting, together the greater part of their famous 21-gnme winning streak. Now, in another home stand, they have begun a brand new winning streak to join In with the Cardinals and Giants in the hot 1936 race. The Cubs have won five straight on their home lot now and by trouncing-the Phillies 3 to 0 yesterday as Larry French revived last year's pitching form they landed only a game and a half behind the second place New York club and five behind the league-leading Cards. The Cubs couldn't shake off the pesky Pittsburgh Pirates, the club they ousted from third place by a single percentage point a few days ago. While French was blanking the Phils with eight hits and whiffing six to chalk up his first complete game in, his last seven starts, Cy Blanton was performing a similar feat to give the Pirates a 2 to 1 decision over the Dodgers. The Giants, meanwhile, took a 7 to 3 drubbing from the Cincinnati Reds, who blasted Harry Gumbert out with three runs In the fifth then jattered Frank Gabler for a four- un winning rally in the eighth as 3 aul Derringer hurled steady ball. The Cards and Bees had an off day. In the American league the Yan- cees stretched their lead to three ;ames with a 12 to 3 rout of the Browns while their nearest rivals, he Red Sox and Tigers, mauled each other in a double header. The 3ox provided excellent support for Jefty Grove in the opener to win 6 to 3. They failed to provide the same backing for Fritz Ostermueller, lowever, and Detroit pounded out a six-run sixth inning and a 12 to 7 triumph. The day's only other game saw he. Athletics beat out the White Sox, 5 to 4, in the tenth when Pinky Higgins singled home the winning run after intentional passes by Johnny Whitehead had filled the Bags.

Guthrie pitching and L. Guthrie catching and which was on the mound could not be determined. The Rams have played five games to date, winning four and losing one. The loss was to Laketon, 8 and 7. Cities Service Beat,PhiIIips Cities Service playground ball team won a postponed game from Phillips, 8 to 6, Sunday afternoon.

LONDON I/P)— Newly-elscted as an honorary member of Wimbledon. Dwight F. Davis, donor of the international Davis cup. hereafter will be eligible to hobnob with royalty, dukes and earls in the royal box at Wimbledon. The honor entitles him to a seat among such personalities as King Edward VIII. the Duke of York, the King of Egypt, the Duke of Ketit, Lord Desborough, the ex-King of Slam and a glittering host of British peers of the realm. Strangely enough, though donor cf the famed trophy, Davis was left "out in the cold" when he went to attend the Davis cup matches between France and the United States, at the Roland Garros Stadium in Ptiris, in 1932. Every seat had been sold, and Davis returned to his hotel. But a permanent seat will be reserved for him at Wimbledon, where he blazed the trail for a long string: of American victories when he won the Wimbledon All-Comers doubles championship witli Holcombe Ward in 1901. Now 56, Davis started his tennis career at Harvard University, where he won the intercollegiate- singles and doubles championship in 1899. Secretary of War from 1925 to 1929, and Governor cf the Philippine Islands, 1929-32, Davis adds his new honorary membership at Wimbledon to a long dist of clubs, including the Metropolitan, Burning- Tree and Racquet, in Washington, D. C.; the Harvard Club in New York; the City, Racquet and Noonday in St. Louis; and the Tennis and Racquet, and Algonquin, in Boston. Read The News Want-Ads.
