The heavyweight boxing turmoil is almost as complex as in
ternational affairs. Nobody seems to know what the other one has
or has not got. ;
Jersey Joe Walcott is currently reigning as boxing king of
the world. But how long he will keep it is about as predictable
as Slinin' Sammy Baugh's retirement from professional football
which has been rumored for the past five years.
Walcott finally captured the heavyweight crown on his fifth
attempt, but one hit in five times at bat certainly is not a good
average. He claims to be 39 years old, but so does Jack Bennv.
Many authorities on the inside swear that Walcott will never
see 40 again.
Before winning the coveted title. Walcott
by both Joe Louis and Ezazrd Charles, thoueh a lot of fans think
he beat Louis, in their first bout.
To Walcott's credit, it can be said that he combines both
boxing skill and punching power. Even so, it is quite obvious he
is well past his prime. However, he can not be tabbed as a mere
pretender, to his heavyweight laurels. Even Charles will vouch for
this, since he is the chap who suffered a knockout from Walcott's
power punches m the seventh round of their last meeting.
As for Charles, he is 32, young enough to regain his champion
ship but hardly young enough to become a terror in the ring.
Forced to bear the wrath of his fans because he could not match
the standards of Louis, Charles was probably one of the most un
popular champions in modern boxing history.
Despite this unpopularity, Charles was a brilliant boxer, some
thing the Brown Bomber was not But he simply could not over
come the sparkling record Louis left. His chances of regaining the
championship are about 50-50. Ordinarily they would be very
remote, but the caliber of the heavyweight devision is at such a
low ebb that almost anyone could win.
Nor can Louis be left out of contention, thoueh for his own
good he probably should be. He will be 33 in May, which gives him
a slight advantage over Walcott. But the Brown Bomber has almost
everything to lose and nothing to gain in his quest for the crown.
Louis was considered the most colorful champion since the days
when Jack Dempsey was bowling 'em over. He successfully de
fended his title more times than any other heavyweight champ.
and his punching prowess was phenomenal. In fact he may still
be the best hitter among the present heavyweight crop. But the
power still remaining in his arms is gone from his legs. During
his recent fights, which be terms "exhibitions," Louis tired easily
and had a difficult time maintaining; a steady pace.
Among the present mediocre fighters, Louis may be able to
regain his title, though the chances are very slim. But even if
he does regain it so what? In the future some young gent will give
him such a trouncmg that he will be punchy the rest of his life.
But it is aparent that such a young fighter is not active at
the present time. For even the fighters in their early 20's are not
any great threats. Rex Layne is a fairly good hitter, but he lacks
the finesse necessary for a real contender. In contrast to Layne,

The prevailing good weather
has made the intramural season
move along very rapidly. At the
Ag College eight teams lined tip
on the playing field to see who
was the better squad.
The first game was between
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Phi
Delta Theta with the Sig Alph's
Jim Hoover of the Sie Alph's
started and ended the touchdown
scoring by catching passes from
Pete Jeffrey. The first T.D. was
a 20-yard yass to Hoover from
Jeffrey and climaxed the T.D. by
a pass irom Jeltrey to Ed Perry.
A pass from Jeffrey to Hoover
gave Sig Alph another 6 points.
The conversion was made by a
pass from Jeffrey to Perry.
. Second on the slate was a
tilt between Phi Gamma Delta
and Sigma Nu. who played to
a final score of 6 to 0 in favor
of the Fiji squad.
The winning touchdown was
made on a pass from Merle
Mi u pin to Jim McGeachin. The
try for conversion was unsuc
cessful. The most outstanding members
of the winning squad were Mc-;
Geachin on offense and John
Lowe on defense.
Kicking off in the next game
were Presbyterian house and Ne
braska Co-op. The final score was
22 to 0 in favor of Presbyterian.
To start the scoring the
Presby boys caught the Co-op's
behind the line of scrimage for
a safety and a score of 2 to 0.
The first touchdown of the
game was a pass from Cork
Biemond of the Presby's to
Norm Sithan. At the try for the
conversion, So than passed . to
Biemond again unwound his
throwing arm to send a long 40-
yard pass into the waiting arms
of Chuck Battys who caught it in
the end-zone for a T.D.
Later in the game Biemond
passed to Tot Holmes for 15 yards
and a touchdown. The try for the
extra point was no good, so the
final score stood at 22 to 0 in
favor of the Presbyterian House
