DETROIT, June 30.-G')-If Pro-
moter Mike Jacobs wants to stage a
heavyweight title fight in Detroit
between Champion Joe Louis, a
hometown boy, and Bob Pastor of
New York, he can obtain Briggs Sta-
dium as the site provided he is will-
ing to pay the same rental he would.
have to shell out for the use of a
ball park in New York.
That was the word today from
Owner Walter O. Briggs of the De-
troit Tigers, who disclosed that his
representatives would confer with
Jacobs in New York on July 10.
"We are doing this," Briggs said
"because of the demand of the people
of Detroit and vicinity to see Louis
in action in a world's championship
encounter. I am making this state-
ment at this time because in pre-
vious discussions there was too much
ballyhoo about a proposed fight."
Louis, who graduated from the
Detroit amateur ranks, has never
fought here since winning the title.
The "too much ballyhoo" refered to
by the multi-millionaire owner of
the Tigers was the publicity that ac-
companied a visit here by Jacobs
prior to the selection of New York
as the scene of the second Louis-
Max Schmeling fight. At that time
Jacobs visited Briggs Stadium and
called it "The finest ball park for a
fight in tie United States." The
stadium would have a seating ca-
pacity of 80,000 for a fight.
When Briggs revamped the sta-
dium, he announced it would be
available for "outstanding" fights.
However, no fistic battle has ever
taken place within its walls.

that "there is no more chance of the

ing back to an outmoded form of
organization than there is of turning
back the tides of time."
Brophy was a principal speaker at
the first annual convention of the
Michigan State Industrial Union

Lead Fight For H alting Foreign Silver PurchesE

I'm OK, Mamma'

After taking too many on the
chin from the fists of Joe Louis,
Tony Galento got consolation and a
kiss from "the Mrs."-Mary Gal-
ento-in his Yankee Stadium dress-
ing room. Tony mumbled "Joe's a
good fighter. But he don't hit so
hard. I couldn't see; that's all."

These three.Senators, left to right, Elmer Thomas (Oklahoma), Key Pittman (Nevada), and Pat McCarran
(Nevada) led the fight in the Senate that led to passage of- a bill to discontinue purchases of foreign silver
after July 1. Later the Treasury department slashed its price for the foreign silver from 43 to 40 cents an oun
