St Augustine •
Trounces Smith
Raleigh, N. C., Jan. 18—
(ANP)—The St. Augustine’s
College Basketball team made
its 1936 debut Friday night by
trouncing Johnson C. Smith
University 35 to 32 in an ex
citing and fast game. Robin
son, the Saint’s lanky forward
and Kennedy, the center were
high scorers for the game.
Greenlee of the Queen Oitv
team, making many spectacular
shots, was the outstanding play
er for his team. A the start of
the game, Smith took a 6 to 0
Ipad by cirtue of 2 goals by
Boyd and one by Eaton A
quick dally by Robinson and
Kennedy brought Ihe score to
19 to 10 in the Saint’s favor at
the end of the half. The vis
itors supplied some keen excite
ment by running up the score
to 32 to 35 when the final gun
scorned to roh them of victory. I
Necro Ts Standout
In Golden Gloves
Mo. Tournament
Springfield, Mo., Jan. 18—
(OP)—Latham McDaniels, 175
pound Negro, was the big
standout in the Golden Gloves
tournament of the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat conducted here
as the finishing touches were
put upon the 54 boxers who
participated in the Springfield
unit eliminations for the thirty
who will see day in the finals.
On January 16, thirty more
entrants will Ve for the tilt
along with some of the win
ners in the first elimination
try. The finals will come off
January 23 when the 16 suc
cessful contestants will go to
St. Louis to participate in the
tourney of champions the mid
dle of February. The entrants
are under supervision of train
er Ed Smith. In speaking of
McDaniels, Smith says, “I*ve
seen a lot of boxers around
here, professional and amateur
hut that kid, McDart'els, has!
shown me enough to convince:
me he's a natural fighter if I j
ever saw one.”
Another T Jon Tossed
To The Christian
Chicago, Jan., 18—Charley
Retzlaff, who otherwise seems
to be guite a normal young man
has offered himself for public
sacrifice at Chicago Stadium
th's Friday, Jan. 17. Joe Louis
is the person chosen to per
form the rites. If nothing else,
this proves that a man will do
anything for money.
I nthe time of the Caesars,
for the amusement of the Ro
man thousands they tossed out
and watched the animals sharp
en their teeth on the bones of
Christians to lions in the arena
the hapless humasn. Now and
then a jungle beast would eith
er get toothaehe or, if sensible,
give up entirely on an especial
ly tough case. Some cynics
claim these were merely the or
iginal hard-shelled Baptists who
were aimed for heaven if they
didn't drown enroute, but you
can discount that as merely
professional jealousy Besides,
it lias little to do with this col
The big point is that Joe
Louis, reputedly a deep and sin
cere student of the Bible, has
been reversing the procedure.
In New York last June they
tossed out a Roman offspring
named Primo Camera, the Car
nivorous, and may thousands
saw the mammoth artlmal com
pletely devoured by the Chris
tian Brown Bomber Rotzlaff,
next opponent for Christian
Joe, falls in the "lion” cate
gory when he says he’ll beat
the Dusky Destroyer. That's
as much lyin’ as you’ll see for
many a day.
When a professional boxer
these days offers to get into
the same ring with Mr. Joseph
Louis Barrow, the heavyweight
to en dall heavyweights, he
ought to be looked upon as a
mental oddity. Rotzlaff does
not necessarily need the cash
as the 27 year old white youth
is worth $300,000 after six
years of fighting. If the truth
must be known, it is the same
ambition tha made medieval
alchemists seek a mythical
"philosopher’s stone” which
would turn everything it touch
ed into gold—the accomplish
ment of the impossible.
Every boxer today knows
that a victory over Joe would
belong in the class of hiking
from New York to London.
There would be fame a.plenty,'
and the mark is worth shooting
X. That is, if you’re like Nathan
Hale who was proud to give his
one life for his country. When
they fight Louis, those who say
"I’d die for dear old Rutgers”
get their wish.
Jack Blackburn, who once
trained Retzlaff ,admits the
white boy is tongh. Charley,
who stands six foot four and
weighs 198 does have something
of a punch. But for that matter,
a couple of lads named Max
Baer and Kingfish Lovinsky
(whatever became of them!)
could also hit. That means Ret
zlaff, by his reputation, is mere
ly making it harder on himself.
Well, it’s his own funeral. If
Charley wants to commit sui
cide before several thousand ob
servers, who am I to say him
nay I

sity, Los Angeles ,tackle who
was rated one of the best on
the coast, eats on’y one meal

have him as a guest . . .Lorenzo
Pack, 1935 Golden Gloves,
heavyweight champ who has
been knocking ’em right and
left since turning pro, watched
Joe Louis train recently for his
bout Friday night. "What do
you think of Joe!” he was ask
ed, "Do you think you can lick
lim! "Why not!” replied Pack.
"Tie's human like I am.”
Foresee Trouble
Over N. Y. U.
Court Star
New York, Jan. 18—(ANP)
—Howard Canu is receiving
congratulations for the splendid
basketball team he is develop
at New York University—and
because of the spectacular
showing the team has made, he
has been able to command his
figure for the appearance of
the varsity on the basketball
cards which have taken New
York by storm. However,
breakers are ahead for Howard
—for the star of his up and
coming freshman team is Ed
Williams, lanky colored center
—'much in the order of George
Gregory at Columbia. What
will be the position of New
York U’s team in 1936 and 1937
when it meets all of these nice
teams from Dixie? Already,
Kentucky has stated through a
spokesman that the team rep
resen in g that school does not
participate in games where Ne
groes are on the team, such
clauses being inserted in the
contracts it signs with oth> r
schools. Yet Williams is the
best for New York U’s team
next year.
