EVENING, THE NEWS, Tampa, Texas PAGE FAIR WEATHER IS PREDICTED FOR LOUIS-SCHMELING FIGHT o- LOUIS SCALES 6 MORfi POUNDS THAN MAX ON THURSDAY Btf ALAN GOULD, • NEW YORK, June 19 (/P) — Vyashcil out- In more way's than one.'wiiat's left of the heavyweight fistic argument between Joe Louis and Ma.V Schmeiing is due to be settled tonight in Hie Yankee slailitini. ..We'atlier perihlttliig, and it's evert money the skies will be clear this evening, the 22-year-old. Amerlcai negro will tee off on the Germkr veteran a few minutes after 8 p. m (CST). If you believe all you have been .reading about the affair, it will Be all over with a drive and a pitch. T'he, one-day postponement, firs' in' years for a major heavywel&v match, failed either to rally any backing for the German's already so minimized as to bp scarcely discernible, or prompt £ belated rush for the lonesbriie ticke sellers. The only mob scene so far connected with the enterprise occurred ye'steYday at the old Hlppodr'ome, pri Sixth avenue, where the police scored a decision over the working , press In connection with the weigh- irig-in. The experts didn't exactly ta'kfi-lt on the chin but tliey were making no gains in the clinches before finally getting the momentous itifbrmation that Louis scaled 198 pounds, Schmeiing 192, and that bVth fighters we're in absolutely perfect fighting condition. ..T'he situation got so far out of liahd that ^ohe bluecoat tried to • chase' Promoter Mike Jacobs, already considerably harassed^ deal 6'ftTthe premises. Mike got back into the thick of things just in time to s£ve his dignity and then, with a 1 ' flhkl glance at the dripping skies, announce the 24-hour postponement. lidiils, who figures to dominate tiie' proceedings inside the ring, also \$is.,the life of the postponement parity. The young iiegro took delight' in the formal examination, griniijed at Schmeiing when the German put iii a belated appearance, and Joshed with Promoter Jacobs. "OUghter stayed' ho'.ine today," commented the chocolate soldier. "I like' to play golf in the rain and you can'see plain for yourself there ain't'- gonna be no fight. It might be'-fUn to" fight In the rain, anyway. •How'about it Uricle Mike? Let's have Uj 1 any way. Or does you care about folks coming?" .Uncle Mike apparently did care. He"' bustled around, giving orders', a'n'd- taking steps to conduct ah extra;" day's drive for cash customers. He flatly, rejected any suggestions . further to mark down ticket prices, hoW.ever. The promoter has decided to sink'or'swim on the $3.45-$40 scale nV'started out with, subject to a few reyl^lphs he made earlier in the week; He won't sink but neither Will lie swim in the" profits. .The.-payoff probably will be on a $1500,00,0 "gate," This will mean sbme.what less than $200,000 for each pit 1 the gladiators. In fistic parlance th'e r! bout is "off the nut" but no .such 1 ' margin as all concerned had hoped, including the income tax collectors. Speculating on the effect of the delayy critics agreed Louis appeared mu'ch'less concerned than Schmei- ing puf this only strengthened the alread$' unanimous conviction that the Dp'it! 1 - is a comparatively "soft : touch" fetf 1 the Brown Bomber. It meant just 1 another day of sleeping, eating and' hartnpnica playing in the life of the y.bung; negro, whereas .Schmeiing, already keyed to face a blast of high explosive'/ had- an extra 24 hours, to contemplate the risks involved. The' weights developed less dls- . parity than was expected. Louis scaled a couple of pounds under his weight the night he knocked out Max Baer, last September. Sch'mel- ing r Was slightly heavier than the experts figured. But this also was just Incidental in the developments ' leading to the main conclusion—that IJpujS 1 remained a sure shot to win with neatness and : dispatch. Along Broadway, it's even money Schmeiing doesn't survive the fifth round, with few takers for this or any pther wagering" proposition of-' fe^ed by the bookmakers. If there's another postponement the figrjt will be put over to Saturday night. Jacobs would like to hojd it' iii the afternoon but this would run counter to the baseball game between the Cardinals an'd Giants at the Polo Grounds. The preliminaries start at 6 p, m. (CST). The main bout will be broadcast over' the' NBC' networks at 8 o'clock Pampa time. _ Beaupre Knocks Out Virginian* DALLAS, June 19 Of)—Butcher Boy Tom Beaupre of Dallas, whose . right hand punches remind one of Jack Dempsey's, stood alone as the southwest's ranking heavyweight iprpspeet today after draping a-one- rpwd' knockout on Bob Tow of Alexandria, Va., here last night.

DISTANCE HIS DISH .tiff STANDS A BZfKR CHANCE . •AT Tua MO A HALF MILES, UMS /Q.rnAN -THOROUGHBRED 'BEFORE GALLANT SOA/ #A6 CONVINCED BRITISH SKEPT/C-y CAN A DISTANCE',.. \PORTSLANTS Billy Sullivan of Cleveland isn't exactly the' type of ball, player you would call temperamental. And yet the son of the former White Sox catching star is one of ;hose fellows who must be satis- 'ieci and happy to perform at ;heir best on the diamond. He's .lappy to be working with Steve O'Neill and the Cleveland Indians and it is reflected in his work. Since donning the Cleveland uniform Sullivan has been pound- .ng the cover off the ball. He isn't ikely to continue his .400 pace at ,he plate for long, but there is no denying that his amazing batting las been one of the features of the 'irst lialf of the current pennant chase. There is an interesting stoiy in ust how Sullivan happens to be wearing- a Cleveland uniform. It seems that Billy decided that there vas little opportunity for him as a •.egular first baseman iii Cihcinna- ;i so he approached Larry MacPhail on the subject of making a deal for himself. Talks Way to Cleveland Naturally, MacPJiail was cold ;o the idea at first. The Reds had paid $12,500 for Sullivan and vere not going to let him go un- ess they could at least get back ,heir investment. The business nanager df Cincinnati had a couple of trades in the making, one Of r which was to have sent Sullian to the Boston Bees. Billy nanaged to talk MacPhail out of ;hem and had him do business with the Cleveland management. The Indians were willing to give 17,500 for Sullivan but that was lot enough. Cleveland finally raised the ante to $10,000 and the leal was closed. Cleveland's Manager Steve O'Neill, long a friend of Sullivan, induced the youngster to don the 3£tcher's mask and pads. Billy's :reat batting earned him the call iver Frankie Pytlak, rated as one of the mpst likely looking mittmen the majors, it was not entirely on the strength of his hitting that Sullivan was used regularly behind lie plate, although that by itself pade hini vital to the success of he Indians. Sullivan is no slouch as a catcher—in fact, O'Neill thinks ie may wind up as one of the jest in the game. He is sniart, qiiick, eager to learn and willing o take advice. Rooting Out a Rumor Somehow, the idea spread that Billy did riot wish to follow in he footsteps of his famous dad and work behind the plate; There is nothing to th'is ruinor; Billy has always wanted to catch. • The idea arose from the squabble Silllivaii had with the White Sox nariagement on the subject of phUig. Billy was willing to go p work behind the plate but he vould have hid to be paid more nipriey for playing the catcher's ittpn. He reported to -Milwaukee IT(' the spring of 1934 with the bat- erynien but Alan Sothern, the lianager, sliifted him to third be- aiise the spot needed bolstering. 3ulliyan had a fling at first base, too, ' but - all the time he really vaulted to, catch. He's a catcher in. Cleveland, and it will be all right & him if" H? remains a catcher as*'Jong a§?.he': remains active. Sullivan has the mechanical abU- y.w)^c5}, teg<$her witti;hjs back- ground-and'the•coaching of Wally Schang and Steve O'Neill, should make him one of the outstanding catchers in the big leagues. That would be all right with his dad, too. You can safely go ahead and name Billy Herman, of the Chicago Cubs, and Charlie Gehringer, of the Detroit Tigers, as the two leading second basemen in the major leagues. But' if you want to find yourself with a real argument on your hands pick one of these stars over the other. Our own private straw vote among the. ball players indicates that these two are pretty evenly matched, with the edge—a mighty small one at best—going to the Tiger star. The general opinion Is that Herman is a bit more flashy Iii the field while Gehringer, a finished' performer, Handles even the most difficult chances with grace and ease.' At the plate this season Gehringer appears to have the edge. By The Associated Press .... Bob Smith, Bees—Limited Cardinals to two hits in 4-0 victory in his first start of season. .

Beaumont at Dallas (night). San Antonio at Fort Worth (night). (Only games scheduled.) The Beaumont Shippers came out of the south today with a good chance of discovering whether their rapid rise to the throne of the Texas league was merely a flash in thd, pan as they meet" Dallas in a tnree-garrie series. The Dallas club abdicated its league leadership as the Redskins from Oklahoma City again applied the Indian sign in a game at Dallas last night. The score was 3 to 2. Dick Whitworth for the Oklahomans and AT Baker for Dallas went the rounte and .allowed five lilt's, but the visitors managed to turn a walk Into a run and take .the game. The Dallas loss 'was' the club's sixth straight. Leo Twardy's sturdy right arm lifted the Beaumont club into the lea- ?ue leadership. He bested Copeland and the Hbustoiimen, 4 to 2, md allowed only five', hits. Copeland pitched well but his mates contributed' five errors. Another close one was dropped by San Antonio to Galveston's Pirates, 2 to 1, with Jakucki having the edge -over Abe Miller in a mound setto., Forth Worth' stretched its winning streak tp five games', soundly s'pank- .ng" Tulsa', 11 tp.O.

Deciding Game at Series To Be Played At Park Tonight Blow-by-Blow Story Of Fight To B"e Heard Baseball, between two great leamr, will be the attract/on St Road Runner park tonight when the Eason Oilers of Enid, Okla., return for the deciding- game of a series with the Fampa-p'anclger Road Runners. Game time will be 8:30 o'clock with admission 40 cents for men and 25 cents for women. The gates at Road Runner park will be open early tonight so that fight fans will be able to hear the blow by blow account of the Louis- Schmellng battle direct from the ringside over a special hook-up. The fight is. scheduled to begin about 8 o'clock. The Oilers have been "pointing" at the Road Runners all season. So set have the Oklahomans been on beating the birds' tonight that they overlooked Hubcr of Borger last night and dropped a .12 tp 4 game. John Clowers was, nicked for 10 hits in seven innings and Ryba allowed four bingles the rest of the game. Pattoii hit a home run for the Oilers. B'yron Chody allowed I'O hits, but kept them scattered enough to win his ball game. A blow by blow account of the Louis-Schmelinff fight will be available tonight at Road Runner park where fight and baseball fans will gather for an evening- of real entertainment. The fight Is scheduled to begin about 8 o'clock. After the battle, the Pampa Road Runners and the Eason Oilers will meet in a "rubber" game. Fans will be able to sit in the cool breeze and enjoy the fight direct from the ringside over a- specially constructed speaker system. A large radio has been secured to pick lip the fight. It will be connected with a special loud speaker system. A radio aerial will be strung between light poles, 70 feet above the ground, to gel best pick-up rciults. Sponsors of the figlit party will be Schneider hotel, Courthouse Cafe, La Nora and Rex theaters, and Pampa Hardware and Implement company. Manager Nick Urban was big chief at a pow-wow this morning and tonight the Oilers will take the field with blood in their eyes and misery in their bats. Andy Bednar, who has lost one and won one against the Road Runners, will be on the mound. Bednar is a night ball pitcher with a fast ball and some baffling curves. Big Gene Ledfbrd will probably be Manager Sam Hale's choice to oppose Bednar. However, Carl Stewart, •Sam Gray and George Bulla will be available and Hale may cross up the dope by sending one of them to the mound. Determined to get a homer hi his pet park, Gordon Nell will be swinging from the ground tonight. The former Road 1 Runner first baseman went hitless here Monday night when Lee Daney fed him the wrong type of fodder, Dallas Patton, another former Road Runner, hit well on his previous' two appearances. Tank Hbrton, still another Road Runner who is wearing the Enid colors, got one bingle in two games. It came at a time when needed most to give his team a win. Road Runner lilts have be'en scarce against the Oilers in the four games already played. The birds collected 7 ; bingles in three games and six in another for a total of 27 base hits. Enid hasn't done so well against the Pampans, the big stick wielding Oklahomans having only three hits more than the Halemen to date. Plans are under way to handle a record crowd tonight at the combination ball game and fight party which will be given for the single admission price. — : «».

NAPANOCH,' N: Y., Jillie 13 (#>)— Whether M^x Schmeling 1 licks Joe Louis in the Yankee stadium, June 18, is something else again. But this much, is certain: Joe Louis is gping-to get hit. , 'Nobody has ever hit Joe Louis a real hard punch," the German said today. "Maybe that's why they call hjm a super-fighter. But I will hit him. Let me tell you. 'Ever since I came here I have been practicing at finding a target with my right. For two weeks it was no good. I would aim a't the'jaw, but the blow woujd land'high upon the face or. on my' sparing^ partner's head or shoulder. "But I kept practicing : every day. Now it is different. I hit what I aim ut." chmeiing proved it, too: He went into the' ring' with' 'three' different sparring partners and hit each where arid when he pleased^ Swings to Left.' he.ipb; n,aw is to 'perfect his left and Max will concentrate! on thai; until he breaks camp th.e cjay before; the fight. ," "That is the important- hand in this figbt,''; said, Trainer Max Ma- jh.oij. ."S9 ; w"e 'gp rj|Rt' to- worlf on M#c'h,on; (JJ&iVt explain;-, wjiy We" regarded Schtneling's left as his principal weapon against' the Brown Bomber, but he certainly left the impression that there is plenty of room' for improvement of Max's shots from the port side. When they arrived from Germany in April, both Schmeiing and Machon insisted Louis had a weakness and that they knew what it was, but you couldn't get another word out of them on the subject. "That is between Max and me," Machp.n. would say, Not.even Herr DireKtpr Joe' Jacobs knows the secret: • j=|cl}meHngj living the life of a hermit in his training camp here, will talk of anything but the approaching fisticuffs. Mention Louis arid he replies: "Let's go shoot clay pigeons;" or, "let's go have coffee;" or "Congressman Zionpheck, he is what you call some playboy, no?" •I Didn't Come to Lose.' On several occasions, when asked point-blank as to his chances he r ould invariably reply: "I"d.J4tnot co'jrie" across the water -, ,.,-.-^je&'ljttle or nothing of the' Gej'inan; f*oivr- $ays wefeTj|ly/ he; roars? 1 into the reservation from hijr cottager two miles away, Ij.urrlefliy changes Into trunks, then goes Into ' Then back liito' street clothes' find a 5-minute visit .to press headquarters. Here he is* pleasant enoiigh, but will not talk" fight. •A quick dash back into the woods and you see no more of Schmeiing until it is time to'box again. The only oqcup'ants of the cottage are Machon, Max 1 , Otto Petri, a companion, and a Qerman cook, who can go to town with pancakes. Manager Mystified Not even Manager joe Jacobs, quartered with the reporters down the big road, knows what goes on at the house in the woods. There are reports that Machpn, one of the smartest handlers'' of fighters in Europe, daily dons ringf togs and gives Max a few pointers in private. The two Maxe? say Louis whip Paulino Uzcudurt" and"', they have spent hours studying films' of the Brown Bomber's fights with Max Baer and Prirjio Carriers.. They iri- sist Louis has ! a weakness and that they know what it is. "It's the left that will count in this fight," repeated Machon, "and iWf are working on that now.

Lashing Out for Record Here is the sensational, whirlwind finish that carried Don Lash of Indiana University to a new world's record in the two-mile- run at Palmer Stadium, Princeton, N. J. His mark of 8:58,3, made in the face of a soft track and a bitter wind that pelted him with rain, wiped off the books Paavo Nurmi's outdoor mark and gave the U' S. Olympic team new hope for distance runs. BY FELIX R. MCKNIGHT, Associated Press Sports Writer. DALLAS, June 19 (IP)— Bald, good- natured Jack Lamb, the world's champion bass fisherman who tossed a line in some creek or lake every day for 7 consecutive years for some sort of a record, is still catching 'em. ... He shyly admits having snagged more than 46,000 black bass during his career. The Forth Worth native, here to show the anglers how to cast with fly and bait rods in a centennial exposition exhibition tomorrow, is the most ardent, as well as successful, fisherman of all ... It's a sport with him ... He hasn't tasted a bite of fish in seven years . . . After hooking them and inspecting their size, he throws them back in the water. If you doubt his stories, he'll show you ... He took a certain doubt- Ing sports editor of San Antonio to a nearby creek and hauled in 208 bass in four hours . . . His largest bass weighed 15 pounds and he guesses he gets but one out of every 1,000 that weighs over seven pounds. He gets better every year, explaining he becomes more adroit and adept at casting . . . Last year was his best ... He pulled out 4,600 bass in' different states of the south- land ... He ranks Louisiana as the best bass fishiing paradise, with Arkansas second arid Texas third . . . He tried 1,600 kinds of bait before finally deciding that only four plugs and three flies are good to lure Mr. John Bass. He's been at it 27 years and now can toss a plug 257 feet ... He failed to miss a single day on some bank between 1910 and 1927.
