,¥fitJBSDA>Y EVENING, JUttE 18, (Will PAMPA UAlLf JflBWB, • m LOUIS EXPECTED TO KNOCK OUT SCHMELINQ IN 4 OR 5 ROUNDS TONIGHT 0" WILL NOT AS LARGE AS EXPECTED BE . Ity AjJAN GOULD Associated'Press Sports Editor JjfElV YORK, June 18. (fl^-The weather man forecast showers jfor t^fcy, OMS ekterts predicted taps fdr Max Schtaeluig; tonight, while .flttil fans served notice that ; million dollar, gates no longer can bus ftwunfr by the soft Warbling of ballyhoo birds. Joe Louis, still the No. 1 magnet of pugilism, his punching artistry worth Watching uncjer any circum- stahees, lured the fight faithful to the! big town today from all parts of .the country. But at the box offices, thousands of tickets remained unsold'at all prices, up to and Including $40 top, for tonight's proceedings in Yankee stadium. , Iri- heavyweight history there have been upsets of such startling character 'as'.tb mafce one aria all a bit wary, Including the .experts, but there has not,been;an occasion in this' writer's memory .when such complete, unqualified.unanimity prevailed 6n the day. of "a -big- .fight, with .'so much at stake. Presumably the entire press section will collapse from the recoil if Max Schmeling so much as lays a forcible glove on Joe Louis. We shudder to think of the reaction if Schmelirtg, the 10 to 1 .shot, beats the .brov/n. bomber. The weather, it appeared; might take a sufficiently B'our turn to force postponement for a night. Max will 'collect around $200,000 for|a few. .clouts to , the chin and probably will .be glad to get it all over wjth, . All signs .point to a quick ending. The consensus of pre-rflght views lySs that the bomber would win, by acclamation arid .a; knockout, Within four! orCfive" rounds.-It Is tfyls, writer's opinion he can name the. round and punch, either right or left. The day of .the..fight leaves no doubt that the drawing power of Schmeling Was over-estimated in making this match and • tha't the promoters over-estimated the demand for tickets scaled from $3.60 for .general admission to $40 for ringside planks. Promoter Jacobs ascribed .the failure of Schmellng to respond adequately to the "buildup" processes as the main factoi- checking ad- yarice • sales,' He also conceded' the effect of a Jewish boycott, due to anti-Nazi sentiments, likewise .coh- , tributed to absence of another million-dollar gate. Not even a sudden ,'rush for cut price tickets, it seemed, would develop a .crowd of more than 60,'opo and; gross receipts in excess of $700,000, Speculators who had load- ed' .up .with pasteboards in anticipation of eleventh-hour de- mah'ds %ere "holding the bag." All; things considered, ..however, figures'represent a sehsatiohaltrib- ute to. the drying .power of .a .22- year pld negro yputjy .wiio-.was, f$ unknown, outside of midwe'stern amateur ranks,.two..years ago, They.mean that..for,his .three, big fights in .New York '-within a year, each against a .former ,world heavyweight champion, Louis will have attracted' niore than $2,000,000 -in gate .receipts. • , , 1 Assuming j Louis disposes of Schiheling; Reaving the German to console :hjrnself with life 911 Jtis Bavarian ^estates, the company ,6f.. his ; icreen star wife and a substantial ;jEtdditipn to his personal fprfurie, there;i$najn.s the problem of ;mft'(icl>r ing'lthe ,fcr.pwn bomber with,'James J. uBfaddbck lor-R 'tftle-1igjitMis -- •--' ' -• /T.jiefflcit that the Lpuisrpr.addock- fight 'will' -be a 'fistic'"na^ral'" dqesn't mean, However, ^tljaf V'- can easily-be arranged.- -Demand-for it has growji this spring, largely because of a popular notion that the gaiiie Irishman ; stands a better chance to test.
