    Realm of Sports—
J«e Louis Thrills
Boxing Euthusiast
With Recent Victory
By Al. White for ANP.
New York, July 4—Ere these
lines reach your eyes, the news of
Joe Louis’ sensational victory
over Prime Carenra at the Yankee
Stadium, sometimes called Colon
el Ruppert's Ball Orchard, will
have been told and retold. But
just like another story which is
so often retold under far differ
ent circumstances, there is a fresh
ness and a glory in this thing
which just doesn’t diminish.
How Louis smashed his way to
victory over his huge opponent is
hsitory now, how Camera, pre
sumably an improved man ,a bet
ter boxer and a veteran of seven
years in the ring, went down be
for smashes which no man could
have withstood, has been sung
over the wires until every hamlet
in the univrese has been acquaint
ed with the yarn.
But there are still a few figures
concerning this fight which are
interesting for instance, Joe Louis
drew down $44,000 as his share of
the boodle, part of which it is
stated, he will share with the Har
lem’s Children Fresh Air Fund
for the poor kids who know only
Joe Louis through what they hear
and read; second that Camera
took a nice fat purse of $81,000

and the most awful licking he had
ever had.
Some seventy-thousand eager
faces turned to the 24 foot ring in
the center of Colonel Ruppert’s
million dollar diamond, midway
between the pitchers box and the
second base bag, while around the
ring, spread out in fan fashion,
hard seats with no backs retailed
to the gentry following pugilism
at the nifty price of $16.50 per.
All of the bleachers were crowd
ed with fans, the upper tiers were
solid with human forms, the low
er stand and the mezannine af
forded comfortable resting places
for those who had the filthy lucre
to purchasee comfort-even stall
ing back of the grand stand seats

In this bout, Alike Jacobs, one
of the most astute promoters in
the business drew the biggest
crowd and gate of years to a non
title bout. Aided by the great
publicity of Walter St. Denis, one
of the game's best, he had materi
al to offer the hungry public and
as a result of the fight, Harlem
had its first chance in ten years
to let off a loud yell.
And Harlem did. Hours be
fore the fight, eager fans minus
the price, lined Seventh Avenue
and stayed on the corners and
the streets until the gray morning
dawned. Tex Rickard aptly ex
pressed it in his famous Dixie
drawl. ‘‘I ain’t never seed nothing
like it before.” Police were help
less in the good natured mob
which milled about the corner of
138th, Street and 7th Avenue;
while over on Lenox Avenue in
front of the Savoy Ballroom,
where Louis was scheduled to
make a personal appearance, cops
begged folk to get out of the way
of street cars. It took the huge
buses which navigate the Seventh
Avenue thoroughfare, one hour to
go from 125th, street to 155 street,
and ordinary run of fifteen minu
tes. That was some crowd.
They didn't see Louis, for he
was too busy at the home of his
friends resting after popping the
ring’s biggest man on the whisk
ers. In ten years of watching
fights your correspondent who
was at the ring side with eyes
glued on both men. has never seen
such a gruesome, pitiful sight as
that presentede by the Italian in
the sixth round. Helpless on his
knees, he looked pleadingly at
the referee, Arthur Donovan, who
with humaness in his heart, stop
ped the bout. Louis& Oh, yes, he
was as fresh as a daisy and rairin’
to go. He had no compassion in
his heart for the fallen foe—not
one bit—he wanted another crack
and the huge jaw of his opponent.
And what a target Csarnera was.
Joe missed three swings during
the entire performance and each
made the brown boy mad, for he
threw lustier and lustier punches
into his target as the fistic soiree
Before the fight, the darkness
made all attendants look alike,
but prior to the main bout, the
full flood lights of the stadium
were thrown on and the manfifi
cent speetable has never been
rivalled in this town. Crowds of
folks, men and women, all races,
sitting side by side to witness ihe
event of the evening.
into the center of the ring,
stepped the announcer togged in
his tuxedo. A fine plea for
sportsmanship on the part of
spectators followed his initial re
marks, ending with the words,
“May the best man win.’’
Lussy cheers greeted his re
marks. Then the introduction of
the former champions. Mickey
Walker, the “Toy Bulldog” of
R unison, X. J., Jim Braddock,
present champion, Maxie Baer,
former champion; Gene Tunney,
Jack Dempsey and Arthur ‘Jack’
Johnson, all followed and were
given the royal welcome a heavy
weight champion, whether present
or past, demands. With Camera,
there were five ex-champs of the
heavyweight division in the ring
at the same time, probably a
world’s record.
Then followed the introduction
of the fighters. Camera towered
over his opponent much in the
manner Goliath must have com
pared with David. And with the
seconds in the ring the lights
dimmed and the murder was on.
Louis’ handlers conducted them
selves much as did the champion.
Only one man talked to Louis and
that was Wily Blackburn. Rox
borough and Black were present,
but they had nothing to say to
Louis. That was all left to Black
burn and he did plenty. Those
four J’s spelled disaster. Joe
Louis, John Blackburn, Julian
Black and John Roxborough. A
winning combination if ever.
Brother Westbrook ‘Florian
Slappey’ Pegler, borrowing a title
from Oetavious Roy Cohen's fam
ous stories of the Southland, who
wrote much but said nothin’ con
cerning the fight, will be morti
fied to know that there was less
trouble in this vest crowd of mix
ed people than your correspon
dent has seen at a church picnic—
and he has seen some church pic
nics that are lulus.
Likewise, Brother Arthur Bris
bane, whose “And a gorilla can
lick them all’’ has made him fam
ous should come down out of his
Fifth Avenue penthouse and get
some of the lesson the common
herd can give him on how hu
man being behave. Not to be out
done. an editorial in the Mirror,
accredited, it is believed to Broth
er Bribane decried the winning of
the fight by Louis, saying how
much more good he could have
done in other things—well, some
of the boys just won’t stay in step
even after they get a lesson, you
know how it is.
Joe Signs for Two Fights
Eager to please, and anxious
to fight ‘maybe because he is in
a hurry to get married, for Joe
swears he will never marry intil
he wins the heavyweight cham
pionship’ Joe has signed to fight
the two Maxes, Bear and Schmel
ing—in the fall, one in Septem
ber'and the other in October. But
this all depends upon how Max
Baer’s injured hands hold up.
Both fights will be for Jacobs
and the Twentitth Century Club
of which Bill Carey former Gar
den head is co-sponser with Jac
obs. In other words, the Twen
tieth Century Club has the De
troit menace hitched to a two
year contract.
It is believed that the Kingfish
Levinsky will be Joe’s opponent
in August in either Deroit or
Chioago. And Joe believes in
fighting to keep in trim, therefore,
he wants a fight a month. Some
thing unheard of in the sissy like
heavyweight division these recent
years. However, the Moses has
come to lead the game out of the
bull ruches now and the boys are
glad to follow the leader.
Can Lick All Present
When Mickey Walker saw Joe
uncork so many samples of
punches to defeat Garnera, he
predicted nothing but woe and
gobs of it for the present crop of
heavies. Mickey said Joe can lick
any of ihem inclining the Baers,
the Braddoeks, the Sehmelings,
one right after another on suc
cessive nights and then take on
the other crop of heavies for
amusemen . Well, that may be
so, but one at a time is sufficient.
Sports writers are going into
raptures over the new fighter,
for he is no.hing else but a fight
er. Fighting is his game and he’s
stuck with and on ;t. And under
the present management, he will
go far for it seems that ihe J’s
have made the winning combina
Title Bout Questioned
But with he Madison Square
Garden holding the bag with a
synthetic champion, how can Joe
get to a crack at the title unless
“business’’ is done between the
Garden and Carev-Jacobs. This
is the quetion yet to be solved, for
ihese two groups love each other
like a couple of stray dog.
It is useless to deny that the
Garden would like to get ho'd of
Joe, for he is right now, ;he big
gest drawng card in the game,
but how ts another question. The
Twentieth Century Club is not
going to surrender its contract to
the Garden, that’s certain.

After Jce Louis
Along the s reets after the
fight, vendors of ice cream and
peanuts were shouting “Get your
Joe Louis ice cream, pops here.”
“Eat Joe Louis peanuts and get
strong.’’ And up on St. Nicholas
Avenue and 150th Street, a drunk
loudly and proudly proclaimed to
all and sundry, "Look-a-here
folks, you is now on Joe Louis
Down at the 135th Street Y,
pandemoniufh broke loose when
the announcement came over the
radio that Louis had won.
Visitors from out of town
crowded every available space. In
the Y, the banquet room made by
throwing together five smaller
rooms, was converted into regular
dormitory to accomodate the
Every hotel in town was filled
to capacity and people begging
for places to sleep. Cars from
twenty-five states were seen park
ed around the Stadium, while in
side, the biggest crowd ever to
witness a prize fight, raitgng from
preachers and teachers down to
thugs and bootleggers and what
have you.
And on the tongue of every
man and woman in Harlem was
the magic name of Joe Louis.
Yea, verily, Harlem had its first
chance to stand up and stretch
and cheer since the depression set
in and destroyed everything. And
how lustily Harlem cheered. They
want more Joe Louis and should
he fight anybody else here in
New York, an addition will have
to be built to the stadium to ac
comodate all who want to see
Louis fight. As one well known,
minister said, "I couldn’t get to
the fight, but God knows I pray
ed hard enough for Joe to win.’’
And that expressed the sentiment
of whites and blacks, whether
Ihey had a dime on the fight or
not. As a figth, it was all Louis
as a spectacle, it has been unpar
allelled in sports history.
The Sports Roundup
By Dan Burley (For ANP)
Chicago, July 3,—Sometime ago I
pinned the cognomen of “Brown Mo
ses of the Prize Ring” on ^Joseph
Louis Barrow of the Lexington, Ala
| bama Barrows and today I reiterate
the nickname. If I were to draw a
far-ftched comparison, I would re
mark that each victory of Louis after
the Camera hurdle, will be in effect,
as good as lecting a congres man to
represent us in Washington and if he,
by some manner, is given a shot at
th title which he would win, he’d do
u a m,uch good in that capacity as a
Negro vice president of the country
Moses led the Israelites out of
Egypt, symbolized in Biblical lore as
depth of despair, hell-hole of thwart
ed amb tion, land of oppression etc.
No man attains the idolatory status
of p heavyweight champion in this
country-providing he’s a :ocker, a
knocker-outer about whose prowress
some halo of celestial glory can be
attached. The right man on the
heavyweight throne can do marvels in
j breaking through barrier, of color,
! creed and caste.
We read, but not in surprise, of re
cent statement made by old Tommy
Burns, former World’s heavyweight
t tleholder, whose crown, if I remem
ber correctly, va. lifted by John
Arthur Johnson Burns is now an
insurance salesman down in Texas
and i making plenty of money- He
r- Ikes it known that the State of
Texas wants the next world’s heavy
weight bout. He makes no reserva
t ons. If Lcui . is the challenger
Braddc'k the chamomn, than Texas
wants that bout. The while south is
impressed with the ability of the Ne
gro to wear the honor without be
smirching the surface. Joe Louis,
“Bicwn Moses of the Prize Ring,” is
responsible for this. Joe Louis i the
cause of the State of Missouri, by
legi lative action, removing ancient
and revered laws which prohiU»*d
mixd bouts in that state.
Incidentally at the door of Louis
can be laid the fact that the State
,of Texas is holding its greatest fair,
which may eclipse the exposition held
ir. California and may approach the
one to be held here For the first
time in the history of the Lone Star
state, the Negro will be honored on a
par with his white brother, will have
a “Negro Building” in which he can
be shown and discussed at the very
best advantage- On that occasion, we
believe a Louis versus Somebody
championship match would probably
be staged. We don’t believe there
would be any lynchings either. Louis
has been made into a sort of deity
by, fundamentally “Good Sport”
America. Not even the most preju
diced Southerner would raise up
against a majority opinion.
Yes, Joe Louis the “Brown Moses
of the Prize Ring” is leading this
race on up the road.
We Culdn’t Leave Out
Owens and Simmons
But what about the Jesse Owens,
the Metcalfes, the Cornelius John
sons, the Eulace Peacocks, the Oze
Simmons, and others? You no doubt
a *k. They go to make up the valva
cade of Brown Crusaders who are
leading the onslaught on discrimina
tion, segregation and all the evils,
we as Negroes, so intensely abhor.
Think of the Unversty of Texas of
ficially inviting Metcalfe to run in
its annual relays as it did last spring!
Think of 35,000 spectators singling
a black boy out of 22 player on a
football field and making him the ob
ject of ten minutes sustained ap
plause at the Northwestern Univer
sity of Iowa game last year, when
the hero, Oze Simmons, pounded a
new path for Negroes in every line
into the green coated sod of Dyche
These things get us somewhere.
Soap-box oratory^ classroom analy
sis, learned discourses by ancient
reverends and other rustics may
solve the problem, but for me d’d
rather see it come through a solid
punch on the jaw, the flicking of dust
from a cleated shoe in the face of
the fellow being left behind, or the
smashing through a tiny hole on the
left side of the line, a second’s tussle
with the obstacle of ten or eleven
players and then the victorious dash
to the goal line by the brown-hued
60,000 Fiffht Fans
See Classic
The Yankee Stadium, filled with
60,000 howling fight fans, is the
scene of the most colorful event
:"taged on Ruppert Row since the
Yankees and Athletics met in a
double-header back in 1927 when
both teams were battling for first
place in the American League with
only a half a game difference in their
standing. This roaring throng has
gathered to wltne s a battle just as
bitter or more so, a fight between
Joe Louis, ambitious and sensational
Detroit Bomber, and the gargantuan
Prlmo Camera, Italy’s mam,mouth
bid for boxing honors, who are pitt
ing them elves against each other in
p. struggle for the position of runner
up in the heavyweight race.
Responding to that irresistable
lure of battle, countless pugilistic
heroes of the past, present and fu
ture, have crowded around and into
tbo squared circle, awaiting the ap
pearance of the gladiators of the
evening. Among them may be seen
th ex-heavyweight champions, Jack
Johnson, Gene Tunney, Jack Sharkey,
Tommy Bums, Jack Dempsey, the
latter still the idol of sportdom, Max
Baer, whose brow has not yet lost
the mark of the heavyweight crown
it so proudly bore until less than two
weeks ago, and James J. Braddock,
the “Cinderella Man” who paral zed
the : porting world by rising from
the relief rolls to wrest the crown
from the Californian. All are to be
seen and greeted. A wave of wel
come is accorded Harry Wills, still in
that superb, lithe, physical condition

“Brown Panther.” There is Johnny
