EVENING, 17, 193« PAJJFA DAItY NEWS, Patrtpa, Texai LOINS IS HEAVY FAVORITE TO KNOCK OUT SCHMELING TOMORROW NIGHT FIRST ROUND KAYO IS EXPECTED FROM NEGRO By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor NEW VORK, Jhne 17 (AP) — The litrtise that Ruth helped build WltM tils celebrated clouts for tHc circuit and which Joe Louis IS' helping; support with his equally renowned clouts to the chlrt win echo to the roar of the fjght crowd again tomorrow Ssehe of many a knockout, In the bi»1l> field SB well as ill the ring, the Y^nHee Stadium furnishes the background for the latest exploits of.tlte 22-year old negro boy from Alatiama whose rise to fistic height^ has been equally as spec- tadulb'r', as rapid and even more lucrative, for all concerned; thai) the memorable flight of' Babe Ruth tb' baseball fame. There may be more background • ithnn. spectators in some sections of the big Bronx b'allyard but the ringside rows, at $40 a head, will reflect' the' glitter of the golden day as Joe Louis keeps his latest fistic rendezvous with Germany's Max Schmeling as the party of the second part. It's billed as a/15-round match, the winner to fight James J. Braddock this September for the heavyweight championship of the world; in the sa'me arena, but five dollars will get you ten if you think Schmelling has a chance to last more' thaw six rounds against the deadliest, most calculating puncher th6" ring lias known since Jack Dempsey's "prime. Louis expects to make short iwork of the third ex-heavyweight cham- plbii He has fought there within a year and list Schmeling as the 28'tH victim in a winning streak unbroken since the Detroit negro turned professional in 1934. Joe hasn'tl named his round yet, haVirig" expressed the hope he "might break his New York record" it' is reasonable to suspect he will : try to apply the crusher in" less thari the 11 minutes and 50 secpttds it required to knock out Max Baer last . September, . .., After- covering the ;last workout's of Louis and' listening to the bomber's trainer, Jack Blackburn, describe his charge's improvement. fifeh't' experts leaned to the view Jde % wlll vary his usual methods by trying' for a first-round knock-out. Tills failed to disturb the outward evidence of calm in Sehmel- ing's camp, howevfer. Max's followers, in fact, think his chances •will' be better in an early slugfest 1 than if lie is subjected to" more carefully directed sharpshootirig. Tlie German no doubt is in fine condition- for a 30-year old boxer •who" passed the peak of his career fbuV or five years ago but he still looKs like' a 30-year old fighter well past' that- peak. Never a ! deadly puncher with his one' weapon, his riglit hand, Sch.niellhg: went 37 rounds witli Uz- cud}n ; without flattening- the old Spanish wOotichopFler, who just aTjout came" apart" from th'e effects of- one solid wallop Louis landed one' .night last winter. That's the tipoff off the difference between ; the' punching 1 power of Max and Jofe; If 'yoli; doh'-t care' to' consult the fu'zsijf facts and figures for further evldenW of disparity, consider that Lpuli-j- is not only the fighting" seiisiitjplii" of tlio clay but the au- tlioif- of trie' new boom' itv pugilistic' , profits; that he's under a five -year" contract to fight for the New York syndicate headed' by Michael Str'ausS Jacobs,, and' that' the-" stock 1 itv Louis preferred is selling strictly on a long terra basis. Despite a few 1 million words of bajlyjipo, the fight has failed' in advance to- stir any frenzied debate' or arouse particular emotional appeal; Mainly for the reasons set forth, the advance sale has only tl)lfi ; we'eK- passed the $500,006 marts; •wh'e'rea's'it was 1 originally aimed : at ! ijlpgo.pdo but there Is every reason tor 1 BelJeVe it will be a highly artis- , tit' success, from the standpoint of promotion as well as what liouis wjlU do' to' Sehmeling in the main event. . .The luck of his one-time associate; Tex Rlokard, may develop a box-office rally for Promoter Mike Jacobs.

"Play ball" will be called at 8:3g o'clock. A week ago in Enid the teams split a doilbleheader. Games were also divided here on Sunday and Monday. Manager Nick Urban ol the Oilers agreed to play the deciding game in Pampa, Last night in Amarillo the Oilers coasted to a 6 to 2 victory over the Phillips Parrots of that'city. "Chief" Perry held Amarillo scoreless until the ninth' innlhg when Cordwood Davis hit a home rUti and flrancla scored a man With a single.

Tonight arid tomorrow night in Borger the Oilers will meet' the Huber Blackfaces. Manager Urban and his players are staying In Pamela and driving back- and forth to James, fdiig, young righthander, will probably be on the mound for the Oilers tonight. Should King, be able to go. the distance, either Glowers or Bednar will get' the call tomorrow night. That would leave the other on the sench to chunk against the Road Runners on Friday night. Local fans believe Manager Urban will start Clowers against the Borger eftlianders and leave bespectacled Andy Bednar to try and pull the rubber game away from the Birds. Manager Sam Hale is uncertain about his starting hurler. It rests aetween Ledford, Stewart, and Gray with Ledford in the lead according to the wise ones. rts Roundup .. -BY EDDIE BRIETZ, Associated Prftss Sports Writer.

Thbse daffiness boys from Brooklyn, long suffering under Vah Lliigle (Mutineer) Mango's reflections on their playing ability, can do a little finger-pointing on their own hook today, in the general direction of their ace righthander. 9 For a long time it has been no secret that Van believes the Brooklyn beauties aren't giving him the support afield his very select fireball elbowing deserves. A week ago he walked out on the club. He came back Saturday after a series of "kiss and make up" conferences with Brooklyn moguls, but when he walked into the il was noticed there were no males greeting him with open arms. Yesterday Van went to the hill for his first start since his mutiny, with the pounding Pirates from Pittsburgh as his opposition. The other Dodgers gave him pel-feet support afield. After holding the Bucs hitless for five innings. Mr. Mungo, himself, exploded with a bang and was shelled from the mound under a 5-run barrage that clinched a 0-2 win for the Pirates, behind Red Lucas' five-hit pitching, While the Dodgers were keeping a firm grip on the National league cellar, and the St. Louis Browns were doing as well in the Ameri- :aii by losing out 9-4 to the Athletics, the leaders in the two loops weren't'doing so well. The St. Louis Cardinals' edge was clipped to 2'i games when they were kicked around by the Boston Bees, while the second-place Clii- :ago Cubs were chalking up their twelfth straight victory, 4-1, over the Phillies. In the American, the New York Yankees were trounced 8-4 by the Cleveland Indians, despite Lou Gchrig's two home runs, and the iccond-placc Boston Gold Sox were losing out to Sugar Cain and the icaso While Sox, 4-2, in spite of Jimmy Foxx' pair of circuit smashes. Winding up the program, the New York Giants returned home from an unsuccessful road trip and turned back the Cincinnati Reds 5-2 be- l in the first extra frame.

M'KNIGHT Associated Press Sprfrls Writer DALLAS. June 17. (/P)--Handsome Homer Peel, pride of Port Sullivan on the banks of the Brazos, can top off 14 years of baseball the remaining summer months by transforming Fort Worth's household tabbies into savage panthers—or failing to arouse their wilder instincts.
