Joe Louis Pounds Out Decision Over Pastor In Slow


Ross Is Victor
Over Manfredo
In Ten Rounds
Floors Opponent Twice
In Non-Title Bout; 6,000
Fans WatchFight
DETROIT, Jan. 29.-(IP)-Barney
Ross of Chicago, world welterweight
champion, won a 10 round decision
from Al Manfredo of Fresno, Calif.,
in a nontitle bout here tonight. Ross
weighed 142/2 and Manfredo 147.
The pair fought before a crowd of
6,286 paying customers in the first
promotional venture of Jack Kearns,
former manager of Jack Dempsey.
Both boys sparred at the start, but
Ross warmed to his task during the
first round and stunned Manfredo,
with two left hooks. Manfredo took
a slight advantage during the second
round with lefts and rights to the
champion's face.
Ross jarred Manfredo during the.
third and the Californian took a
count of seven after a left hook.
Manfredo recovered,rhowever, dur-
ing the round.
They fought even in the fourth
although the champion began to ex-
hibit some of the speed and clever
boxing that gave him the title. {
Manfredo halted that speed in the
fifth and cracked Ross hard with
rights and lefts, winning the round
by a big margin. Ross obviously was
hurt early in the session when Man-
fredo landed a hardsright to the jaw.
Ross recovered in the seventh and
jarred Manfredo with hard blows to
the body with both hands.I

Brown Bomber,
Awarded Five
Of Ten Rounds
Fans Boo Decision; Louis
I-Has Difficulty Finding
Range With Blows
New York, Jan. 29.-(P)-Before a
howling, near capacity crowd of 18,-
000, Joe Louis, minus his fistic bombs,
outpointed Bob Pastor, nimble ex-
college boxer, tonight in a 10-round
pursuit match that presented one of
the strangest heavyweight spectacles
witnessed in the Garden's battle-pit
in many a harvest moon.
Entering the ring on the short end
of 10 to 1 odds, Pastor spotted Louis
nearly 25 pounds, then put on a re-
verse brand of footwork with such
success that he weathered the limit
of 10 full rounds without once being
seriously damaged, much less knocked
off his feet.
Baffled By Pastor
Baffled by his opponent's back-
pedalling, swift-circling tactics, Louis
not only failed to explode any of the
punching dynamite for which he is
famous but actually was hard-pressed
to gain anything like a decisive mar-
gin on points, over the artfully dodg-
ing former New York University full-
On the Associated Press score
sheet, Louis was credited with only
five of the 10 rounds-the first,
fourth, fifth, eighth and ninth. Pas-
tor took the second, third, sixthrand
tenth while the seventh was regis-
tered even.
Referee Arthur Donovan and the
two judges, George Le Cron and
Charley Lynch, scored unanimously
for Louis.
The crowd, which contributed to
a "gate" estimated by matchmaker
Jimmy Johnston at approximately
$90,000, booed the verdict lustily and
jeered Louis as the obviously crest-
fallen Brown Bomber left the ring.
Louis' Punches Fail
Louis, although always seemingly
dangerous with either fist, failed to
land anything resembling a knock-
down punch. The Bomber's lefts
jarred Pastor at intervals, including
the fourth, fifth and eighth rounds,
but he missed more blows than he
connected. Shufflin Joe looked so
slow at times as he tried to match his
smaller rival's speedy footwork that
he resembled a cigar-store Indian
trying to swap punches at long range
with a jumping jack.
Pastor, in retreat nine-tenths of
the entire fight, covered more ground
than a cross-country runner but he
did it purposely and accomplished
his objective, namely to go the route
and keep his chin out of harm's way.
The crowd didn't like Bob's tactics a
good deal of the time and booed ac-
Pastor punctuated his back-pedal-
ling by occasional rushes, with fists
flying and head low, that seemed to
baffle Joe as much as his rival's oth-
erwise well sustained circling move-
ments. The ex-collegian blocked
many of the Negro's hardest counter
punches, ducked or sidestepped
others, and scored on his own ac-
count with lusty clouts to the head
and body.
Gus Dorais Announces
U.D. Contract Renewa'4
DETROIT, Jan. 29.-()-Charles
E. Dorais, football coach and athletic
director at the University of Detroit,
dispelled all rumors linking him with
vacancies at other colleges today by
announcing that he had agreed to
a renewal of his contract here.
His three-year contract expires

Feb. 1.
The latest reports were that he
was negotiating with the University
of Iowa.
"At Iowa's request," he said, "I
had a conference with an official of
the school regarding the football
coaching job. I did not apply for the'
job and I do not intend to do so.
"I am perfectly satisfied to carry
on in Detroit where the plans for
the future greatly interest me and
it has been agreed to renew my
contract now expiring."

While the habits and idiosyncracies
of nearly every Michigan coach are
well known to any sports fans, it
it indeed rare that anything is said
about the wives, who represent as it
were, "the power behind the throne."
To remedy this condition, several of
the wives of the different Michigan
coaches were interviewed as to their
sports interests.
Mrs. Harry Kipke, wife of Mich-
igan's renowned football coach claims
that football is her favorite game
as a spectator, while basketball runs
a close second. As a participant, she
enjoys golf. When asked what she
did the night before a big game, she
replied that she usually stayed at

Michigan baseball coach, claims that
baseball is by far her favorite sport.
Before coming here, she and Coach
Fisher were in Big League baseball
for seven years and she claims that
the life of a college baseball coach is
much tamer than that of a Big League
player. The night before a big game,
the Fishers do not plan anything spe-
cial she said. She added that she
thought the life of a college coach's
wife was a very pleasant one. She
enjoys sports more as a spectator
than as a participant, she claimed.

Leader Of Puck Chasers
Recovers From Infection
Incurred Last Week
Vic Heyliger, Varsity hockey cap-
tain, will be released from the Univer-
sity Hospital within a day or two, it
was announced last night by Dr.
Henry K. Ransom.
The puck leader has been confined
to the hospital with an infected ankle
since his return here Monday, follow-
ing the two-game series with Michi-
gan Tech at Houghton. Surgeons op-
erated immediately, upon his return
and the incision is now beginning to
"It may be a week or two before he
will be back on skates," Dr. Ransom
said. This will give him plenty of
time, however, to get in shape for the
first game of the second semester
when the Wolverines go to London in
a return match with the University of
Western Ontario.
With Heyliger chalking up four
goals and two assists, Michigan took
the measure of Western Ontario on
the Coliseum ice Dec. 8. Michigan
Tech comes here Feb. 19 and 20 for
a two-game series that will decide the
mythical State championship.
Vic got his infected foot in prac-
tice before the Michigan Tech series
at Houghton, when he was slashed on
the foot by a skate and failed to take
care of the cut.
The infection spread to the small
area where the shoe laces are tied,
and the aggravation soon made it
serious. He played in both games at
Houghton and his unassisted goal
won the final and gave the Wolver-
ines an even break in the series.

Few sports in America have received so sudden, so complete and so enthusiastic an
accolade as has skiing. And small wonder, too. Few thrills in the world compare with this
exciting and healthful sport and there is so much ideal skiing country within easy reach of
thickly settled centers that even the city man can enjoy it.
The sensible skiing outfit for downhill skiing consists of a double-breasted wind jacket
of light weight cotton gabardine under which is worn a flannel shirt. Plus fours of wool
gabardine and the Norwegian cap with ear flaps complete the outfit.

Kress And Reynolds
Shipped 'Down River'
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.--(P)-
The clock struck midnight tonight
for the Cinderella Kid of baseball.
- Ralph Kress, who once gained a
reprieve from the minor leagues
through an umpire's wrath, was trad-
ed "down the river" by the Wash-
ington Senators.
He went to Minneapolis, along with
Outfielder Carl Reynolds and cash,
for a rookie first baseman, James
Wasdell, who batted .341 for Nash-
ville last season and probably will
be farmed out to Chatanooga this
year for experience.
