Louis' hand was raised amid oos after 15 rounds, and Walcott vas cheered by a crowd of 18,194 hat paid $216,477 In Madison quare Garden last night, a record -;ate. Louis barely managed to catch up with Walcott. , Walcott back-pedalled, then lunched, side-stepped, then swung, o the bewilderment of .the Brown Jomber whose blows seemed to lave lost the lethal force that re- ~>ulted in 21 previous knockouts as hampion. But Louis always kept coming on, even with his left eye almost shut and blood seeping from lis nose. Judge Frank Forbes voted eight ounds for Louis, six for Walcott, and one even. Referee Ruby Gold- itein favored Walcott, seven rounds o six, with two even, Judge Marty Monroe tipped the balance in the champion's favor, nine rounds to six. In the turmoil that followed ouis' 24th successful defense of his championship, Walcott's manager, Joe Webster, declared he had lold Chairman Eddie Eagan of the New York State Athletic Commission that he claimed the title for Walcott, wanted a public hearing, and based his, protest on, "your own point scoring systcrii." Eagan said he had not called a special meeting of the commission. "I merely told Webster that he could see me Monday at" 11 a. m. and that if the matter was worthy, the entire commission' would consider it at our regular meeting on Friday," said Eagan. The official score cards when totaled showed 37 points for Walcott and 32 for Louis. Up to four points can be won- in a round depending on how decisively the scorer favors one contestent. However, decisions arc not based on aggregate points. Louis damaged his good right hand. He thought this happened in the fifth round. An X-ray after midnight showed no broken bones, said his manager, John Roxborough. "However it was badly bruised." The crowd was brought to its feet in the first round when Walcott landed a hard right and Joe half-slipped, half-fell to his knees for the count of two. ; In the fourth, Walcott's right brought down the champion, and no mistake about it. His left eye already puffing, Louis rested on one knee up to the count of 'seven. • The fight was unusual' in many ays. The once-invincible Louis no onger packed his killing right, and is piston-like left, instead of jolt- ng Walcott, appeared merely to .ide off his head. Never since > :Max Schemling nocked out Louis in 1936, 'before pe won the title, had the cham- ion been knocked down twice, ome managed to do it once, but nly'to enrage him. Walcott's style seemed almost ke a ballet routine, or a backfield hift in football. He would some- mes take two or three mincing tops backwards or to one -side, ropping his guard low as if to empt the stolid-faced champion, nd then, with lightning speed, and a long right, or sometimes a harp left. The entire action had a eculiar, practiced rhythm. Sometimes Walcott qnade Louis ack-pedal, but usually it was Louis /ho came forward and Walcott \'ho darted away from him. "I could have made it look more ike a fight." said Mannic Reamon, .ouis' trainer, "but I told the hamp to keep boring in, trying or a knockout. I could have told im to stand still and feint, but I vanted a knockout." Louis wanted one, too, and he ave everything he had to achieve t. In the ninth, Louis cornered Walcott and had him on the ropes, but Jersey Joe said afterwards he was never in trouble. Hardin-Simmons Beats Teachers for Bowl Title Wichita Falls, Tex., Dec. 6 —(/P) — The Hardin Indians held the title of Kickapoo bowl champions today, riumphant in Wichita Falls' first College gridiron post-season classic by a 39-20 score over Arkansas State Teachers College of Comvay. The Indians, co-champions of the :exas Conference, roared back for 27 points in the third period last fight to knock Arkansas State from the ranks of undefeated earns. . A crowd of 6,000 who turned out or the first of seven Texas bowl Sames saw Hardin jump to two ; ouchdowns and a 12-0 lead in the :irst period, then had that sinking eeling as Arkansas State stormed back for 17 points in the second.

N. Little Rock Outclassed by Subiaco 6-0 By CARL BEL Associated Press Sports Editor Anyone who had an idea that the 1947 Class AA Arkansas High School football playoff scries would be a "big 'city" affair has been surprised—by the Subiaco Academy Trojans. A tough team from the Catholic school near Paris will carry the colors of the Fourth District into next week's finals as the result of 6-0 upset victory over North Little Rock last night. The Trojans' title game opponent will b.e the winner of this afternoon's semi-final game at El Dorado between the Little Rock Tigers, defending state champs, and El Dorado's Wildcats. Be it Little Rock or El Dorado, the winner of that battle undoubtedly will be favored to win thc Double A crown, but Subiaco demonstrated on the Northside last night that it's boys pay no attention to the form sheet. The Trojans, who earlier had surprised by whipping Fayetteville in the first round, not only defeated the favored Wildcats but poured it on in convincing fashion. Subiaco, for example, netted 200 yards rushing and held the North- siders' ground game to minus 15 yards. The winners made 14 first downs to four for the outclassed SPORTS ROUNDUP -By Hugh S.

G — (/P) —The All-America Football Conference, with its divisional champions already established, finishes its reRu- ar season tomorrow while the National Football League moves into its penultimate program with four teams still scrapping for playoff berths. Unlike the junior circuit, which will send the Cleveland Browns and New York Yankees into its East-West title match here Dec. 14 for the second .time, the national loop is engaged in such a tight two-way pennant struggle that Christmas may come before a champion is crowned. At the moment the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles top the two divisions of the National League and both could wrap up sectional titles tomorrow. But it's an even chance that the identity of both opponents for the chammpionship playoff Dec. 21 won't be known until the seasonal windup Dec. 14 and a deadlock in either division would postpone the playoff until Dec. 28. Sunday's pro football schedule: National League Chicago Cardinals at Philadelphia Boston at Pittsburgh Los Angeles at Chicago Bears Washington at New York Green Bay at Detroit All-America Conference Cleveland at Baltimore New York at Brooklyn Buffalo at San Francisco Chicago at Los Angeles. Poll of Sports Writers Favor Walcott New York, Dec. 6 — (fP) — In a poll of 33 sports writers who saw last night's Joe Louis-Jersey Joe Walcott fight, 20 thought Jersey Joe won. Wilbur Wood, sports editor of the New York Sun and a man who tias seen almost every championship fight in the last 25 years, scored 11 rounds for Walcott and four for Louis — and was very emphatic about it. Hank O'Donnell of the Waterbury Republican gave 12 rounds to Walcott with two for Louis and one even. John Carmichael, sports editor of the Chicago Daily News, voted 11 to 4 in favor of Walcott. Ted Meier, of the Associated Press, had Walcott on top, 11-3-1. Among the other writers whose score sheets showed Walcott the winner were: Jesse Linthicum of the Baltimore Sun; Burton Hawkins of the Washington Star; Frank Graham, New York Evening Journal; Whitey Lewis, Cleveland News; Gordon Cobbledick, Cleveland Plain Dealer; Elliott Gushing, Rochester Democrat-Chronicle; Sec Taylor, Des Mqines Register; George Barton, Minneapolis Tribune; Lester Brombcrg, TST. Y., World Telegram; Bob Considine, International News; Leo Peterson and Jack Cuddy, United Press; Ted Smits, Hugh Fullerton, Murray Rose and Frank Eck, the Associated Press. Writers who thought Louis won were: James P. Dawson and Joseph C. Nichols, N. Y'. Times; Red Smith and Jesse Abramson, N. Y. Herald Tribune; Dan Parker and Jim Jennings, N. Y. Daily Mirror; Joe Trimble, N. Y. Daily News; Tom Meany, PM; Joe Gooter, Paterson Evening News and. Al Buck, N. Y. Post.

But when Jersey Joe floored the champ with a rock crusher right and when he danced and sidestepped and ducked to avoid the ever present menace of Louis fists, they were yelling like the dickens ior Jersey Joe to stay on his feet and stay out of trouble. Binocular View From thc more distant $30 pews, where the customers couldn't see he damage to Louis' face, the ght looked like a dull affair—the ind that would cause thc fans to oo a couple of preliminary bums ut of the ring. . .

Four bowl extravaganzas were on the day's card along with a fistful of other encounters but they all stood to be eclipsed by the star- spangled west coast battle that matched America's No. 1 collegiate combine, the Irish, with the third- ranked and Rose Bowl-bound Tro- ?J jans. The post-season attractions were these: Great Lakes Bowl at Cleveland —Kentucky vs Villanova. Glass Bowl at Toledo, O. —New Hampshire vs. Toledo. Papoose Bowl at Oklahoma City — Wentworth, Military academy vs. Northeastern Oklahoma A. and M. Honolulu — Fresno State vs. University oi Hawaii. One ol! thc bowl contestants, New Hampshire, placed an unblemished f record on the line. A crowd of 100,000 was expected tn turn out at Los Angeles where Notre Dame defended not only an unsullied escutcheon but also possibly Ihe mythical national championship against the tough Pacific Coast champions who have been tied once but not. conquered. Betting favored the Irish — by 13 points' — but pre-game statements by rival coaches indicated •\ Notre Dame victory was far from a certainty. The University of Toledo Rockets f ruled a one-touchdown choice over New Hampshire in the second Glass Bowl at Toledo. And there appeared little to choose between the northeastern Oklahoma Aggies with eight wins and three defeats, and Wentworth, with five victories and four setbacks, in the Papoose Bowl al Oklahoma City. An aerial display was promised the 24,000 who held tickets for the Shriners' Aloha Bowl game at Honolulu.

Wathburn- Thoughts of Peace , on Pearl Harbor Anniversary Speaking Sunday at Columbus, Ohio, on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, National Legion Commander James F. O'Neill declared the greatest tragedy of Pearl f. Harbor is that the United States "has not learned anything from And then he said something that has been reiterated time and again by military and naval witnesses summoned in the investigation as to why the Pearl Harbor tragedy occurred: "The real blame for Pearl Harbor lies with the American people. Pearl Harbor was the result of national apathy toward any and every measure for American •£}. preparedness." About 2,000 Americans were shot down in cold blood when the Japanese stole into our Hawaiian outpost without a formal declaration of war. Not only were We unprepared for this treachery, we were unprepared both physically and mentally to fight a war — although war had been blazing in< Europe for two years and it didn't take a particularly shrewd citizen to reckon that America thi'i i centr.! porting (0 V tonl« 49TH YEAR: VOL. 49 — NO. 47 It, HOPE, ARKANSAS/ MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1947 Early Passage of Aid Bill Seen by Top Leaders Washington, Dec. 8 —(/P)— The emergency foreign aid bill rolled toward a series of test ballots in the House today with top Republican opponent forecasting final passage by an overwhelming margin. • Chairman Leo Allen (R-I11) of the rules committed told a reporter there would be no more than 75 votes against the bill.

Allen himself is against the measure. But he said the vote against, it might be no more than ... a veil of cynicism to,cloak our inertia. We scoffed at Europe's war, called it -"phony" —and made no effort to put our national house in shape lor an emergency when the emergency should come. Wherefore, the Japs, guessing correctly, overwhelmed us and slew 2,600 before they could reach for their guns. This is a blot not on the courage of men who met death in the uniform of their country but a blot on the record of all the people of America—private citizens in the big towns and in the villages, who talked lightly and made jokes when the world was burning, so that finally the jest came back to them in the bodies of their own dead. The American Legion now, as after World War I, is battling for a universal military training law. Well, we've been disillusioned twice in this generation with nice- sounding words. How about deciding in our own minds now, once and for all:- What ultimately runs the world—words, or the weight and power and guns of the major nations? And if it's the latter that is true, then we as the world's No. 1 power live in danger every day that we go unarmed.

They weren't allow- to can witnesses or cross examine the committee's witnesses. The committee played its tradition al, although extra-legal, role of counsel, court and jury.' But there the similarity ends. The Senate investigators produced a mess of high-smelling testi- money that made legal action imperative. Much of this testimony was offered by General Meyers himself. The going over that General Hap Arnold gave the former Air Forces procurement officer, and the swift Air Force action in taking his pay and decorations, eemed typical of ahe general reaction to the Meyers disclosures. In the case of th screen writers, the Thomas committee's fireworks produced almost no evidence. The committee charged that, during the war, the White House pressurd movie executives into making film with a pro-Soviet slant. It failed to prove the charge. It accused the Johnston office of trying to get the investigation called off. It failed to prove that charge, too. The investigators didn't produce any Hollywood movies to show how and where the mischievous Red writers had got in their dirty work. This would have been a logical first step. Since there are Communists in a great many other businesses, the activities, rather than the mere existence of the Hollywood cell, would seem to be the principal excuse for the investigation. After the Oct. 28 hearing, Chairman Thomas said that it was evident that the four writers then held in contempt of committee had "very extensive Communist records." But he did not. for all the shouting and gavel pounding, nail tangible evidence of those records on the barn door for all to see.

The forerunner of the predicted icreasing cold for the Midwest ha'd reached as far as the Texas mhandle this morning where tem- sratures dipped to freezing.

Adams $65,000 for the death of his wife and his own injuries in the Great Northern Hotel fire in Hot Springs, Sept. 13, 1946. The majority of the court held that the plaintiff's instructions to the jury presented as fact a matter which should have been submitted to the jury. Adams and his wife were -trapped in their third floor room which adjoined the room where the fire started, and the fire was between them and the elevator and the only fire escape on the building. The suit was against T. S. Ford, lessee of the building, and C. S. Willaimson and Mary Frances Relyea, owners, The complaint charged negligence because ropes were not supplied each room as required by Section 7201 of^Popes Digest but the supreme court noted "the complaint did not allege thaa it was negligence to have provided only one fire escape from the third floor." "The question- which should con- ~ol," the court said, "and which should have been submitted to the iury, is what safeguards should -lave been provided whether ropes or fire escapes or both, x x x in the last analysis the question is Paris, Dec. 8 — (#>)—The Communist-dominated General Confedera- chairma tion of Labor (CGT) suffered a night to tne cmer executive's nossi sharp setback today when a; two- ble candidacy with the statement dav strike of Pars snbwav and ..T . « ._ ___ n ,jr_i S^.L.".

Plan to Psychoanalyze Dear Old Santa May Ruin the Whole Spirit of Christmas By HAL BOYLE New York — (/p) — Well, it looks like they may psychoanalyze Santa Claus. Because some child psychology experts say picking Christmas gifts for children is fraught with dangerous possibilities. They warn that the wrong gift may derange a child's personality, frustrate him in a way to change his whole life, or even give him a 'psychosis," which is a four-bit scare word meaning he may catch a mental cancer. This is only another proof that one of the fine arts of this technological age we live in is to make easy things seern difficult, so that anybdy nowadays who doesn't spend at least half an hour cooking a three-minute egg is hopelessly old-fashioned. But it is going too far to blame Santa Claus for ruining Al Capone oecause maybe once when Al was a boy he found a toy pistol in his Christmas stocking when what he really wanted was pamphlet on how to figure an income tax return. It is one of the big lessons in any child's life that he can't pect to get his heart's desire for notning all the time — even from a saint like Nicholas. Philanthropy often fumbles. everybody. Who'd want to ride across any bridge built later by a boy. who gave up that easily? Picking Christmas gifts for children doesn't call for any more psychology than the common sense anybody has. It is generally a matter of compromise between what the kids want and what the family budget will allow, and 90 percent of the time the budget can't stand the entire gaff. All you can do is to do the best for your kids as you know them, and if your mistakes foil them so they turn to a life of crime in revenge, don't worry — they'll ask you to arrange the bail bond. Children rarely get as much as they expect for Christmas, and you can spoil their characters as easily by giving them too much as too little. The two things I thought I wanted most as a boy— a printing set and a bicycle — I never got. "They'd bankrupt Santa Claus; you'll have to save up and buy them for yourself," said my wise rather, who had five kids. He knew tne requests were passing fancies. They were. I found I wanted to splurge on ice cream cones more than I wanted to become another Benjamin Franklin.
