One Heavy Punch
Ring Career Is Virtually
Ended As Negro Slugs
Way To Early Victory
NEW YORK, Aug. 10.-(P)-The
Braddocks and the Schmelings can
look to their laurels. Joe Louis, the
Detroit man killer, is on the warpath
In the Yankee stadium tonight the
Negro boy showed a crowd of 35,000
roaring fans the Joe Louis of the
Primo Camera and Max Baer fights
in knocking olt Jack Sharkey ofBos-
ton in the third round of their ten
round bout.
It was the most crushing defeat in
the Boston veteran's long ring career.
Louis flattened him three times for
a count of nine before firing two
devastating lefts to the head that
sent the former champion reeling
to the canvas again, this time out
for keeps.
The victory once again projected
Louis, hailed as a super fighter until
his stunning defeat by Max Schmel-
ing in June, back into the fistic spot-
light and ranked him as the No. 1
contender for a shot at the winner
of the forthcoming James J. Brad-
dock-Max Schmeling title engage-
For Sharkey, who likewise had
dreamed of another championship
match, it probably meant fistic ob-
livion. The squire of Chestnut Hill
is not likely to don the gloves again.
Until he ran into the package
of Negro dynamite tonight, old Jack
had been in the midst of a comeback
catipaign of his own. Since emerg-
ing from retirement last winter, he
had defeated Unknown Winston
twice in one night, lost a decision,
fought a draw with Tony Shucco and
capped the comeback with a decisive
triumph over young Phil Brubaker,
the sensation from the Pacific Coast.
Louis, ending the fight after a min-
ute and two seconds of the third
round, gave Jack more trouble and
more punishment than the former
champion received in those other four
fights combined.
Not in all his long ring campaign-
ing has Sharkey seen so many right
and left hand punches. They rained
all over him from all directions. From
the first round on it was obvious that
nothing save a quick kayo could save
the day for Sharkey.
Arthur Donovan called them to
the center of the ring. Louis
peppered a couple lefts then
missed a right swing to the head
as they went into a clinch. Louis
caught Sharkey with two hard
rights and drove him to the ropes1
with two lefts and a series of
right uppercuts. Sharkey jabbed
but missed a right as they went
into a clinch. Louis caught
Sharkey on the robes with anoth-
er right and then missed a left
as Sharkey held.
Joe jabbed with his left and
caught Sharkey's right on his
gloves. The former champion
landed several light rights from

in close and then danced away
keeping his left in the Negro's
face. Loui slanded a hard right
to the body at the bell.
Louis' round,
They came out boxing with,
Sharkey keeping his left in Louis'
face. Louis missed a left and then
caught the former champion with
a right and left to the head but
received a hard left to the face
in return. Louis swung to Shar-
key's face with a hard left and
opened the cut over Jacks eye.
He battered the Bostonian with
rights and lefts to the head and
sent him down with a hard right
for a count of nine.
Louis landed a right and left to
Sharkey's body flooring him for
the count of nine. Louis tore in
again with lefts and rights as
Sharkey hung on desperately.
Another left sent Jack reeling
but he came back and held on at
the bell.

I'll Do My Damnedest To Take
Care Of Farley,' Says Hamilton

-If You Will Take Care Of
Dem Precinct Heads, He
Tells GOP Leaders
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 18.-)-
John D. M. Hamilton, national Re-
publican chairman, told Oklahoma
party leaders at a luncheon here to-
day "if you'll take care of your Dem-
ocratic precinct committeemen, I'll
do my damnedest to take care of Jim
Farley for you."
Assailing what he termed "A bu-
reaucracy that has all the makings
of a dictatorship," creation of new
federal agencies and issuance of many
executive orders which Hamilton said
had not been approved by Congress,
the Kansan continued his attack on
Farley, the National Democratic

Tigers Divide
With Brownies
St. Louis Wins In Opener
As Elden Auker Pitches
Winning Game In Finale
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 18.-(/P)--The De-
troit Tigers handed their former
teammate, Elon Hogsett, rough treat-
ment today as they split a double-
header with the St. Louis Browns.
Hogsett was knocked from the box
with a four-run outburst in the first
inning of the opener, and retired in
the same inning of the nightcap after
the Tigers raked him for five hits
and four runs of a seven-run scoring
Detroit lost the opener 10 to 7
after the upstart Brownies broke
loose for six hits in the eighth. The
Bengal sluggers pounded three St.
Louis hurlers for 20 hits to win the
second game 15 to 3 behind the six-
hit pitching of Elden Auker.
Liebhardt relieved Hogsett in each
game, and was in turn knocked off
the mound. Knott and Van Atta fin-
ished the first contest, Knott getting
credit for the victory. Kimberlin fin-
ished the second game, but Hogsett
was charged with the defeat.
Beau Bell of the Browns, with six
hits in eight times at bat, and Al
Simmons of the Tigers, who batted
out seven singles in ten trips to the
plate, led the sluggers who had a
field day at the expense of the pitch-
ers. Gerald Walker hit five out of
ten, including a home run; Charlie
Gehringer five out of nine, and Goose
Goslin four out of ten including his
twenty-first homer.
Hogsett gave up five hits and four
runs in the first inning of the opener
before Liebhardt relieved him. Wal-
ker drew a pass, and then Salty
Parker, playing first base because
Jack Burns complained of a stom-
ach ailment, singled. Gehringer
tripled to left center, and Goslin

not understand the Kansan's tactics
in attacking him.
"I understand Farley said 'Hamil-
ton and I are in the same racket',"
the chairman said. "This may be a
racket to a New York politician but
not to me. We think this is a fight
to save the American form of govern-
"I think you know what will hap-
pen in the East," Hamilton said.
"I think we are going to carry every
state east of the Mississippi and north
of the Ohio River with the exception
of Wisconsin. That will leave 25 or
30 electoral votes to be picked up in
the west."
The red-haired Kansan criticised
the Roosevelt Administration for
what he said was creation of "60 new
agencies of power, admittedly
shackles for the enslavement of ac
people." He assailed also what he de-
clared was issuance of 492 new ex-]
ecutive orders "to remind us that the1
New Deal is a one man government."7
"Thus," he said, "we have eachc
year upwards of 50,000 administrativei
orders (from the President and gov-
ernmental agencies) to keep us goose
stepping toward the administration's
promised land of a completely plan-
ned economy."
Outlining some of the agencies
created, such as the AAA, electric
home and farm authority and others,
Hamilton said the President had as-
serted the new instruments "of pub-
lic power in the hands of a people's
government" is wholesome but would
be dangerous in other hands. Ham-
ilton inquired if this meant the Presi-
dent "means he is going to continue'
to run the government year on with-
out end."

Western Fires
Cameron Baker Trapped
In Montana Forest When
Burning Timbers Fall
The list of fire fighters who per-
ished while combatting gigantic for-
est fires which swept the West early;
this month included a University
alumnus, Cameron J. Baker, '35, who
was burned to death in Montana, it
was learned here yesterday.
Baker, who was a member of the
United States geologic survey at
Havre, his home town, was among
those shifted to the scene of the fire.
Although not having any experience,
he and a group of his fellow workers
were sent along with other govern-
ment employees in an attempt to quell
the blaze.
Working from a cave as a base of
operations, Baker and his compan-
ions set out to mend a water supply
line. Burning timbers which fell
blocked the way back to the cave,
cutting off their only possible means
of escape. None of the bodies were
recovered as the blaze swept the en-
tire district, sparing nothing in its
A graduate of the geology depart-
ment, Baker was well known on the
campus. For the past year he has
been a member of the Northwestern
University faculty where he instructed
in geology. He was employed on the
survey only during the summer.
Baker was engaged to Miss Hen-
rietta Cherrington, '35, who has been
a member of the physical education
faculty at Ohio State University dur-
ing the past year.

For Governor

Rival As Better Target
For G.O.P. Criticism
Cites Own Record
As City Manager
Island Commissioner Good
Target For Republican_
Criticism, Is Charge
George W. Welsh, Democratic can-
didate for governor, addressed to an
audience of about 150 people here
last night a plea to help him return
his opponent, Frank Murphy, to the
Philippine Islands, and after that to
oust from Lansing the present Re-
publican leadership of the state.
"I have an illustrious opponent who
is a very estimable gentleman, but I
maintain that I am better qualified'
for the position we are seeking. I
have an obligation in this election to
our little brown brothers in the Phil-
ippines. My opponent has been
trained for that job," Welsh said.
Got Good Job1
"When he got out of college he!
got a $3,600 a year job as a district
attorney, and left that to become
a judge at $12,000 a year. Then he
became mayor of Detroit at $15,000,
and now I don't know wha he gets
-$18,000 or $20,000 a year, with a
palace to live in.
"He's just the type for that job.
By your votes, help me to send him
back where he is best suited. I'm
afraid he might not get along on
the governor's salary, but I worked
for the city of Grand Rapids for a
year for one dollar, and my total
salary in ten years of state office has
been $4,000.
"Besides they can't fire the shafts
of criticism at me in the campaign
that they can at Murphy. Already
Gov. Fitzgerald is pointing out that
he ran Detroit into a $40,000,000 debt
when he was mayor. I didn't go into,
debt as city manager of Grand Rap-
ids-in fact, I ran 'em out of their
Attacks Governor
Earlier in his speech the former
R e p u b li c a n lieutenant-governor
launched into an attack on Gov.
Frank D. Fitzgerald as a man "who
preaches so much about civil service
but fails to practice it." He charged
that the Michigan Public Trust Com-
mission, set up by a Welsh-sponsored
bill in 1933 to curb racketeering and
mismanagement of real estate mort-
gage bonds, had been converted into
a spoils tool by Fitzgerald with the
appointment upon his inauguration
of some "political manipulators" who
had condoned in 1929 the swindles
the bill aimed to check.
"The first Fitzgerald-appointed
commission didn't serve t h r e e
months," Welsh continued, "because
the attorney-general was forced to
hold an investigation. The commis-
sion's members resignedhbefore the
report was made public, and that re-
port never has been made public.
"If I'm in office January 1, one of
the first things I'll do will be to dig
out that report and publish it, if
they've left it behind in the attorney-
general's files in their exodus."
Welsh further flayed the Repub-
lican administration for failing to fall
in line with the Federal old-age se-
curity legislation and for political

MADRID, Aug. 18.-(P)-Govern-

bombardments of principal rebel
strongholds of Oviedo, Sevilla and
Zaragoza, as forces within the capital
city buttressed defenses against a
rebel onslaught from the nearby
mountains which was believed im-
The Loyal aerial barrages were to

infantry drives.
It was announced that the circle
of government troops surrounding
Granada was contracting and that
Loyal forces in Estremadura (the old
province containing Badajoz now in
rebel hands) were "making encourag-
ing gains."
Troops in the Guadarrama sector,
government headquarters said, had
forced rebels to abandon a number of
machine gun nests.
Captain Bayos of the government
forces in Mallorca notified Madrid
they were proceeding slowly and
surely toward the island's capital,
The government said indications
were that rebels barricaded in To-
ledo's Alcazar were using their last
provisions and their surrender would
be forced within 48 hours at most.
Although announcing that rebel
desertions were swelling Loyalist
ranks, the government appealed for
new army recruits and for women to
stay at home and do their bit in am-
munition factories instead of going to
the front.
Supplies of ammunition were be-
ing rushed to the government de-
fenders of San Sebastian in which at
least 100 men, women and children
were reported to have perished in a
bombardment by the rebel warship
Government spokesmen at Madrid
said Fascist deserters were telling
stories of "unbelievable horrors."
They said government prisoners were
being shot down in groups after be-
ing tortured.
One deserter, the government said,
told of the rebels placing bodies of
Loyalist dead one on top of another
to make parapets.
Another' government story was that
the Socialist mayors and councilmen
of towns captured by rebels general-
ly were hanged and their bodies left
dangling until picked clean by vul-
Outwardly tranquil, the capital city
was shaken by reports from reliable
sources that government leaders were
keeping three airplanes in readiness
in which to flee if the tide of the

guest of President Hoover.
Today Bryan Untiedt is an 18-year-
old railroad section hand and farm

In March, 1931, Untiedt was pro-
jected into national fame when he
helped rescue 15 schoolmates trapped
with him in a bus by a blizzard near
Towner in southeastern Colorado.
Five children and the bus driver
died. The survivors paid tribute to
Untiedt, a slender, shy lad of 13, for
giving part of his clothing to young-
er children and keeping up the cour-
age of more frightened youngsters.
Untiedt, now six feet two -inches,
and weighing 176 pounds, said he has

Ickes Molds Up
New PWA Plans
$300,000,000 Program Is
Delayed Until Secretary
Confers With Roosevelt
Secretary Ickes said today he was
holding up the new $300,000,000
public works program pending a con-
ference with President Roosevelt next
week on the Chief Executive's latest
regulation governing the use of relief
The President last week said he was
not requiring the employment of re-
lief labor exclusively on public works
projects but would insist upon a)l
Federal grants to them being used to
employ workers from relief rolls. Lo-
cal funds could be used to employ
other labor, -he added.
Unless President Roosevelt amends
the latest regulations, the secretary
said, the public works administration
will be able to contribute only about
10 per cent of the cost of the average
project submitted to it. In the past
it has contributed 45 per cent.
Ickes said he knew some commu-
nities would be able to put up a
larger share than they previouslykhad
planned but that he did not know
how many would be willing to do so.
Asked by a reporter if he planned
to resign, Ickes laughingly replied: "I
am not going to resign during this
hot weather as long as I have an air-
cooled office."
The PWA administrator said the
entire new $300,000,000 program was
being held up pending discussion
with the President. He asserted,
however, that $23,000,000 of new proj-
ects which PWA approved a month
and a half ago, on the basis of 45
per cent federal contributions, were
to receive money from last year's
relief appropriation. Contracts with
municipalitiesbundertaking t h e s e
projects will be sent out as soon a
they are cleared by the Comptrolle

ROME, Aug. 18-(P)-Italy's
mighty air fleet was in a state of
readiness tonight, and pilots were
ordered to be prepared for flight at
a moment's notice, as well-informed
sources said Premier Mussolini would
help openly Spanish Fascist rebels if
France continued openly aiding the
Socialist Madrid government.
All strategic airdromes along the
Tyrrhenian coast were ordered kept
prepared for any developments.
Aviators were told to remain with-
in call, all planes were ordered tuned
for a take-off, and a canvass was
made to learn which pilots spoke or
understood Spanish.
Radio messages from both sides in
Spain were being intercepted by the
powerful government radio station
near Rome which was ordered to de-

A swift S-81 Italian bomber was
said to have fought off two French

Italian resentment against French
activities in favor of the Socialist
Madrid government was kindled by
bitterly sarcastic comment in the
Italian press.
Newspapers spoke of "two-faced-
play" and devoted page one space to
speeches, visits, and encouragement
by French officials and private citi-
zens toward the Madrid Loyalist
cause at the same time that the

MOBERLY, Mo., Aug. 18.-(A)-A
wall of flame and smoke tdnight kept
rescuers from four men reported
trapped in the Esry Coal mine, near
here, since mid-afternoon.
The fire department at Kansas
City, 150 miles away, was asked to

Featured by an increased partici-
pation in all but one of the numerous
activities offered, the Intramural
Sports department yesterday wrote
finis to one of the most successful
summer seasons it has enjoyed.
Eleven champions were crowned in
10 sports offered this year. Only one
previous pace setter repeated his
former record, while a champion was
crowned for the first time in table
tennis, an activity offered for the
first time this summer. Ernest Espe-
lie, of Ann Arbor, took the singles
title in horseshoes for the second con-
secutive year, beating out N. Ostich,
also of Ann Arbor, in the deciding
match. Entries in this division num-
bered 16, a decided increase over last

ular with the students enrolled in the
Summer Session. Ten teams, with
at least 115 men participating, com-
peted for title this year as compared+
with six teams last year. The round;
robin schedule ended in a tie between;
the Reds, managed by L. Vredevoogd,
of Ann Arbor and the Yankees, man-
aged by A. Johnson, of Chelsea. The
playoff resulted in defeat for the
Johnsonmen, while the Reds kept
their undefeated record intact to win
the pennant.
Tennis, another of the more pop-
ular sports, was the runnerup as far
as the number competing was con-
cerned. Sixty-two men were entered
in the tournament this summer, an
increase of 22 over last summer's en-

The only sport to take a drop in
interest was swimming. Fourteen
contestants were entered this year as
compared with 18 competing last
summer. The all-around champion-
ship was won by L. Luoto, of Gardner
Mass., who took five of the 10 events
offered. Runner-up to him was R
Harrison, of Ann Arbor, who had tw
individual crowns to his credit. In
third place was John Edmonds, o
Ann Arbor, who also reached th
semi-final round in the tennis singles
