Champion Schmeling And Beaten Favorite LOUIS IS 'SUCKER FOR A RIGHT HAND PUNCH' t NEW YORK, .June 20, (/P)— • Leaving- unsettled lor the time being the question as to whether Joe Louis, the Brown Bomber, •was more shell-shocked today i.tnan the survivors of the 99.9 .per cent wrong club, the fistic World surveyed the results of the ; uniieuval created by Max Sclimel- Jliff's smashing 12-round kriork- qut 'victory. ..Between nlibis and headaches it was determined: ••;(!) That Schmeling will fight Qhampion JamevS J. Braddock lor the world's heavyweight title, probably the last week in September at the Yankee stadium. (2) That it's still uncertain whether Madison Qquare Garden, with Bracidock under contract, will wage a promotion battle with Mike Jacobs, who signed Schmeling, or whether the rivals will patch up their difference and jointly conduct the march. • (3) That Schmeling will return to Germany via the Zeppelin airliner, Hlndenburg, leaving here next Tuesday night, to receive the plaudits of his countrymen and sec the Olympic games in early August before returning to the United states. • (4) That Braddock. with his judgment of Louis and the negro's-vul- nerablity sustained, stood at the head of the heavyweight class without any apologies being offered for him, for the first time since he knocked the crown off the curly head of Max Baer a year ago. (5) That Louis, despite the shocking unexpectedness of his clown- fall , Is by no means "through" and w.111 start a come-back campaign, possibly by August, with a view to fighting his way back into the championship picture by 1937. : (6) That the sports-writing fraternity, while ungrudging in Its tribute to Schmeling for his great fight and freely admitting the error of under-estimating the German's come-back prowess, stuck by its guns with a. chorus of " if we had to do it all over again, we would still pick Louis." ;A somewhat foggy round-robin of conferences between rival managers and promoters during the day failed to develop any definite line on the setup for the Schmeling- Braddock battle that the fight world assumes will take place early this fall a.s the climax to the most startling pair of form reversals in heavyweight history. All concerned, except Schmeling and Joe Jacobs, had been so convinced that Louis would emerge u.s Hie title challenger that it was necessary to go back and start negotiations all over again. Braddock, posing with Sclimeling during the post-mortem proceedings, took the German's right fist —the weapon that exploded the myth of Louis Invincibility—and said: "Take good care of that, Max, until September. You will need it;" His left eye still tightly closed behind dark glasses but his battered face all smiles, Schmeling countered quickly: "Dot's a goot idea, Jim. I take core aJicl 1 expect I vill use it." While the experts shook their heads sadly over the belated discover that Louis was a. "sucker for a right hand punch," Schmeling. seized the opportunity to rub Both appearing lean and lit 1'or the big battle that was postponed on account of ruin, Max ScJiniel- ing- (left), and the sensational colored heavyweight, Jce Louis, face each other at Hie weighing- in ceremonies, at (he Hippodrome in New York City. Schmeling weighed 192, while Louis tipped the scales at 19C, Games To Be Played Today At LeFors, Phillips, Borger 'RODEO' CANADIAN^tTE-XAS' »* •* — •'to I '*/"' n ''' / ?4 Contwf Rodeo THRILLS!

The Danciger boys inflicted the first defeat of the season upon the Borger Christians who had previously walloped the Peewees and Phillips. The score was 5, to 3 and might have been much closer but for errors made by the Borgans in the first inning. The Little Road Runners, however, did not play errorless ball. A Pampa outfielder let a circuit clout by Robertson get through him. That was the only homer of the game. ; Other games in the Junior base- I ball league will see the Peewees I tangling again with Phillips flfl I youngsters on the Phillips diamond, ! and the Hoover boys engaging the ' Christians on the Borger diamond. The Hoover team will try to climb out of the cellar. The Peewees hope to smack the 66 crew again, but are certain to find stiff opposition. Every team in the league has shown more improvement lately than the Peewees who are expected to snap out of it this afternoon if their full lineup is at work in regular positions. In the Friday night game at Borger, the Little Road Runners scored two on Borger errors in the first inning after two men went out. Borger came back in the second to push one across. The clubs battled on even terms until the fifth when Danciger scored 2 more runs in clean hits. Borger came back in the last of the fifth, and scored one on a homer by Robertson, pitcher. I'AUKEB VS.

I was not sure just how much I could take from Joe's left but I vos villing to gamble. "Why should I bo afraid, anyway? All dot talk was so .silly dat I heard or read. No matter vot happens, no fighter who makes fighting his business should be a- frald. Did you ever hear dot Corbett, Fltzsimmons, Jeffries or Dempsey was afraid before fighting? I should be selling cake, instead of fighting, if I feared Louis or anyone else."
