Simon Stays Five Rounds With Private Joe Louis Comes In 6th ; Is Winner -.•:.'• :.• By SID FEDER '-; 'Aitociatsd Press Sports Writer ,"=' MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, ;'NEW VORK, March 27. — Joe Louis won a big one for Uncle .Sam's soldier boys tonight. " The first heavyweight champion in ring history to come out of *he Army to defend that honor felled the game giant from Long Island, Abe Simon, in six rounds, and with his fists ran the cash register for the Army emergency relief fund to the tune of $50,000 or more. With the roar of a crowd that nearly filled this sport palace ringing in his ears after Undersecretary of War Robert Patterson paid him tribute as a "fine soldier and a truly great champion," the bomber chopped the huge 255 1/4-pound man-mountain down finally at 16 seconds of the sixth round, but only after firing his Sunday shots at a challenger who took everything and asked for more. In fact, Abe was getting up to come back to the wars at the finish, but arrived on his feet just a split second after Referee Eddie Josephs tolled the clinching "ten." A controversy came up as soon as the fight was over, with Simon and his manager, Jimmy Johnston, insisting the big guy was on his feet by "ten" and Referee Josephs contending he hadn't quite made it. Later Johnston, irate and storming, announced he would appear before the New York State Athletic commission next Tuesday and demand that Josephs' refereeing license be lifted. It Couldn't Last Twice earlier, Abie the Ample, who went 13 rounds with Joe in Detroit a year ago, was on the floor. The bell sounded ending a round each time, but once the next heat got underway, he was right back in there with a bother- rushing, some left jab and a crowding, body attack. Yet, all the time you knew it couldn't last—that sooner or later Joe would put the crusher on. He did, finally, just as everyone— even Abe's best friends—expected, thus adding to his great record as a fighter and a citizen. It was the second time in 11 weeks that he had fought lor "nuthin' 'cept my country," as he put it. On Jan. 9, he levelled another giant, Buddy Baer, lor the Navy relief fund, and, as he did for the Army emergency relief tonight, on that occasion he also turned his entire purse over to the benefit. The job over, he rests this week end, then in his own quiet way, will be back at Camp Upton, Long Island, on Monday, to pick up his job of "gettin 1 to be a good soldier." That's Buck Private Louis. • The fans poured their money In for the benefit and the fight. Altogether, 18,220 paid to sit in on the proceedings and contri- a gross gate of $132,an Army, show from buted to 430.41. i* It was start to finish in this flag draped sports palace, and it was this same buck private who headed a parade that included all the gold- braided, generals, colonels and majors that could find the time to come. Joe was the whoie show. \ Joe Takes The Cue ', The roaring fans didn't even know the headmen were around, and the 4,000 soldiers in the Garden, recipients of tickets purchased with contributions mailed to the Army relief headquarters, •were looking for just one fellow only—their own man. i Joe didn't make them wait long. He went right to work as soon as vocalist Jerry Cooper sang the Star Spangled Banner and Under-Secretary Patterson completed a short speech from the ring in which he said, addressing the uniformed men in the house, ''the enemy is trying to take our championship from us, but they are not going to do it—you are going to lick the tar out of them." i "Joe Louis," he went on, "is from the U. S. Army. And where is there a better place for a champion to come from? It is an Army of champions and it is going to win. • "The tribute to all the soldiers in" it, people of America pay 2 Year Old Pink and Red Radiance ROSE BUSHES 10 C EACH. SOUTHERN AUTO STORES, Inc.

Simon even laughed after a particularly mighty right hand caught him flush on the whiskers. Abe Changes Style Joe went right on with his work m the second, stalking Abe around the ring. As the round drew to a close, two ripping rights dropped Abe near his own corner. At the count of two the bell sounded, but the roars and howls from the crowd had the walls rocking and filled the place so much that only Manager Jimmy Johnston heard the gong and hopped into the ring to start working on his warrior. The way Simon shot out of his corner at the start of the third, you thought he hadn't been hit a punch earlier. He changed his style from backing away to rushing in. Through this session and the next he charged Louis all over the ring, carrying the greatest sports figure of his era into the ropes and bouncing big pole-like lefts and right off. Joe's tummy. Joe boxed more cautiously at this point, throwing fewer punches, and he revealed later that he hurt his right hand slightly in the second round and didn't want to take too many chances with it.

Texas Relays Meet Draws 700 Athletes Today w --- .. — _ _ . ___ */ Old Records To Suffer Assault By HAHOLD V. RATLIFF Associated Press Sports Wriier AUSTIN, March 27.—The entry list is the smallest in years and few records appear in danger but the annual Texas relays tomorrow are expected to bring out the best-balanced field in the fifteen- year history of this, the first major outdoor track carnival of the season. Clyde Littlefield, University of Texas coach and director of the Relays, found only four individual champions back but all except one relay team will defend 1941 titles. The count tonight showed 13 universities, 11 colleges, 33 freshman teams and junior colleges, 35 high schools and two Service teams to have entered close to 700 athletes with the possibility of entries tomorrow morning bringing in at least a half-dozen more high schools. Vaulters Going Higher The experts figured the most likely chance o£ a new record would be the pole vault which has attracted a couple of 14-foot performers in Harold Hunt, the national collegiate champion from Nebraska, and Jack Defield of Minnesota. The present mark is-13 feet 10 1-8 inches, set by Beefus Bryan of Texas four years ago. Individual champions back are Don Boydston, the thin man of Oklahoma A. & M. who is joint- holder of the high jump i-ecord at 6 feet 7 7-8 inches; Jim Deal, the mighty man of the weights from Rice; Albert Mikeska of North Texas State, javelin champion of the college class with 203 feet 5 inches, and Bobby Lay of Rice, who tied three others for the pole vault title last year with 12 feet 6 inches. ^ Oklahoma Aggies Favored The only defending champion missing from the relay list is Woodrow Wilson (Dallas) in the high school sprint medley. Oklahoma A. and M. -had the largest entry list in the university division and was regarded as the favorite to win the most places. The University of Texas, defending champion in four relay events, looked best in the sprint division. There were strong teams entered by Minnesota, Drake, Rice and the University of Oklahoma. The list of entries in the university class follows: Texas A. and M., Baylor, Chicago, Drake, Kansas State, Louisiana State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma A. and M., Oklahoma university, Rice, Texas Christian and Texas. Teams entered in the college division: Abilene Christian, East Texas State, Howard Payne, Loyola (Chicago), North Texas State Oklahoma City U. Sam Houston State, Southwest Texas State, Southwestern Louisiana institute, Stephen F. Austin and Texas A. and I. Start This Morning Competing in the freshman- junior college class age: Texas A. and M., Abilene Christian, East Texas State, North Texas Agricultural college, Oklahoma A. and M., Oklahoma City U, Rice, Schreiner institute, southwest Texas State, Terrill Prep .(Dallas), U of Texas, Texas Lutheran college and Victoria junior college. Preliminaries are scheduled in five events and finals in one tomorrow morning starting at 8f40 o'clock. Preliminary will be held in the high school 440-yard relay the university college and high school 120-yard high hurdles; high school mile relay; university, college, freshman-junior college and high school 100-yard dash and the freshman-junior college quarter mile relay.

Dartmouth to Play Stanford In Cage Final By WEBB TROUT United Press Staff Correspondent KANSAS CITY Mo., March 27 —Two of the greatest college basketball aggregations in the United States — Dartmouth and Stanford—square off in Kansas City's huge Municipal auditorium Saturday night for the brightest of cage glories — the National Collegiate championship. Betting .odds varied as the report was circulated that hawk- eyed Don Burness, co-captain of the Stanford qtointet, has recovered sufficiently from an ankle injury to allow him to take his place in the lineup. Just About Even If ihe high-scoring Stanford ace plays,- the bookmakers indicated, the Californians probably will rate a two or three-point edge. If not, they said, the two teams may go to the post on a five-to-four "take your choice" basis. Early forecasts indicated that Dartmouth's elastic zone .defense system and "off ihe cuff" offense technique will undergo a rigorous test against Stanford's man-for- man defense and fast breaking offense. Dartmouth earned the right to participate in the National finals by defeating Kentucky in the eastern playoffs at New Orleans Jast Saturday. Stanford went into'the finals over Colorado in the Western playoffs here at the same time. Dartmouth's Indians, five-year rulers of the Ivy league, have a proficient spearhead in Jim Olsen rangy 6-foot 5-inch center. With their 'height average of 6 feet 2 inches, and their point-a- minutc reputation, the eastern Redmen have been hard to stop. The sun-tanned cagemen from Stanford, also called the Indians who won the Pacific Coast conference prior to the Western tourney, also boast extreme height. For instance, there is Jim Pollard, 6-foot 4 1-2-inch forward. In pre-tournament play, Stanford won 24 out of 28 games, proceeding then to lick Rice institute, 53 to 47, and Colorado university, 46 to 35, in the finals of the Western tournament. Dartmouth lost three engagements out of twenty-two in games previous to the eastern playoffs in which they downed Penn State in the preliminary Friday night, 44 to 39, and followed through with a winning stroke to fell Kentucky 47 to 28. Tech Swordsmen To Compete At Dallas The Texas Tech fencing team under Coach George Beakley, will leave for Dallas early Saturday morning to participate in the Southwestern Fencing league finals Sunday and Monday. Fencers making the Dallas trip includes J. W.,Martin, Bill Rolhvage, Alan Stanger, Earnest Thaxton, Coach Beafcley plus John Harding who will seve as trip supervisors. Bill Rolhvage is Texas Tech's best bet for honors. He has defeated all comers in the first two series of the league meet and promises to be a standout in the Southwestern meet at Dallas. Coach Beakley is a former Baylor University fencer. He won third place in divisional competition at last year's meet and is undefeated so far this year. > Coach Beakley said that full- sized, gold-plated sabres and dueling swords would be awarded winners in each division at the Southwestern meet and that he believed the Texas Tech fencers would return with their share of prizes. PIRATES BURN CHISOX LONG BEACH, Calif., March 27. (JP>— Pittsburgh's blazing hot Buccaneers today beat Chicago's White Sox 4 to 1 for their fourth straight victory and 11 out of their last 12 games. PAWN BROKERS MONEY On Anything of Value PROMPT COURTEOUS SERVICE S&r« up to 50% on unredeemed Diamonds Watchei, elc. Licensed aud Bonded DUKE ELECTRIC DIAL Indians Break Camp, Leave Many Questions Unsettled By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Wriier CLEARWATER, .Fla., Marjh 27. —The Cleveland Indians broke camp today, first major league club to leave its Florida training base, and as they set out on the long exhibition trial that leads homeward they were surrounded with almost as many uncertainties as when camp opened over a month ago, Louis Boudreau, 24-year - old manager of the Tribe, has not yet found a pitcher who can be called his No. 1 and the fellow who comes nearest to this designation right now is-Jim Bagby, the lean right hander who could do no better than win nine and lose 15 lart year. Bookie In Outfield Bagby has looked good in training and, indeed, the Indians whole staff has functioned satisfactorily in the spring games. But it looks like the sort of a staff on which half a dozen hurlers might win ten games and none more than a dozen. Last year Bob Feller accounted for 25 victories and all. of the rest of the pitchers together won only 50 games. This total of 75 triumphs was merely good enough to give the Indians a tie for fourth. The sale of Gerald Walker to the Cincinnati Reds means that the Indians definitely will open with a rookie in the outfield and the chances are he will be Oris Hockett, who batted .359 at Nashville last season. Tangle With Giants However, Boudreau still is considering several other candidates and a decision will come out of the long road series with the New York Giants.. As matters stand now, the Indians have a good defensive club witli fair hitting, but can expect to be only as good as their pitching. This appears to be second division and its is doubtful if any amount of Manager Boudreau's college hustle can offset the situation. CUB PITCHERS STINGY LOS ANGELES, March 27. (£>) —The Chicago Cubs defeated Los Angeles of the Pacific Coast league today, 5-3, with Jess Flores and Russell Meers dividing mound duties and each allowing the Angels four hits, YANKS NOSE OUT NEWARK . ST. PETERSBURGH, Fla. Mar. 27 (if) —Hank Borowy regained his pitching form today as the New York Yankees defeated their Newark farm team of the International leaguu, 3-1, in an exhibition game limited to eight innings by the weather. • Randolph Field Puts Texas U. Away, 9-7 AUSTIN, March 27 (Of) — The Randolph Field^ Ramblers laid down a barrage of hits today and the University of Texas, despite three circuit clouts, came out on the short end of a 9' to 7 score. The Flyers made five runs on as many hits in the second and added two more runs each in the fourth and fifth frames. Things looked'hopeful for Texas when the Steers collected six tallies in the fourth, -two of them on consecutive homers by Jack Stone.and Speedy Houp't, but the Texans couldn't keep up their steam although Stone connected for another homer in the fifth. Tankevsley, a sophomore hurler, started for Texas and' was relieved after the second inning by Price.

(IF) —Gray Madison, Phoenix automobile dealer, reached the round of four in the Southwestern golf tournament today by taking a one- up decision from Elaine McNutt, El Paso, the defending champion. Madison, a professional before regaining his amateur status several years ago, hooked up with McNutt after eliminating Ted Darragh, Tucson, two and one, in the second round. The El Paso oil man put out Tom Coffin of the University of Arizona, two and one, in the morning round. At the end of 11 holes, Madison was four up on McNutt. The Texan rallied, however, just as he had done in his morning match, and took the next three holes. In tomorrow's 36-hole semifinal matches Madison meets Tom Lambie, youthful .

The spectacular finish found the pair slugging toe-to-toe with practically nothing barred. Referee Johnny Martin had all he could do to pry them apart and once tumbled to the floor with the two battlers in an effort to straighten them out. • Jenkins started the trouble when, wrestling in a clinch with Kaplan he pulled him to the floor and started punching. Martin managed to get them apart and Kaplan came raging after the harder punching Jenkins, getting all the best o£ the rough exchange which followed. Buy A Defense Bond TODAY!
