Monday morning, on the eve of the Jack Dempsey-Bull Curry fracas,
Eddie Lewis, manager of Detroit's Arena Gardens, announced that if the
Manassa Mauler won he would match him with Arturo Godoy in the fall.
Well, Dempsey won his fight Monday night (in 1:05 of the second round)
and plans are already being formulated for a bout with the Chilean, one
of the leading contenders for the heavyweight crown.
It seems surprising that a fight like this is being planned. Dempsey
is 45 years old and, though Godoy is no "spring chicken" in boxing cir-
cles, he is considerably younger than the ex-heavyweight champ; and
considerably faster. If would be difficult to evaluate the relative punching
power of these men but this much is certain-even if Dempsey can hit
harder he will land fewer blows and those he does land will have little
effect upon Godoy.
Monday's battle was a far cry from the fights put on by the Dempsey
of old. In the other corner was Curry, a wrestler, and not the great Firpo
or Tunney. The gate was under five thousand dollars and Dempsey, it
may be remembered, fought in three fights which grossed more than on'g,
million. The Manassa Mauler himself is a far cry from the nation's hero
who lost four million dollars in the stock market crash of 1929.

Last month in Toledo Gene Sarazen challenged Walter Hagen to a
golfing match which was to have feastured the Red Cross Ryder Cup
matches that started yesterday. Now we learn that Sarazen has refused
to play Hagen because the latter is non-playing captain of the team and
the rules state that he can get into competition only in case of emergency.
However, as all concerned in the tourney, with the exception of Sarazen.
have been willing to waive a strict interpretation of the rules people have
been wondering just why Sarazen has backed out. We would like to know
very much whether or not Gene is getting afraid of losing what reputation
he has left. After all, the meet is being given for the Red Cross and without'
that match it is certain that much less money will be obtained for that
worthy cause. It's a case of pretty poor sportsmanship on Sarazen's part.

If the present European War ever lets up enough to send an American
force over there of tennis players, not soldiers, the U.S. should be able to
give a good account of itself. No. 1 male star, Bobby Riggs, took Welby
Van Horn, one of the country's coming young stars, in the Western Tennis
Tournament and Alice Marble defeated Virginia Wolfenden. Both Riggs
and Miss Marble showed good form in their matches as did Frank Parker
and Don McNeill, who won the Spring Lake tennis title and the New York
state clay courts title respectively last week.
There's no amateur woman player equal to Miss Marble now that both
Anita Lizana and Jadwiga Jederozowska (Mlle. Ja-Ja) have retired from
competition and, with the possible exception of Germany's Baron Von
Cram and Australia's Jack Bromich, neither of whom is active, Riggs is
the world's top male amateur tennis player.

Old Fat Freddy Fitzsimmons of the Brooklyn Dodgers made" baseball
history as he joined Lefty Grove, Red Ruffing, Ted Lyons and Carl Hubbell
in the 200-game winner class Sunday by shutting-out the Pittsburgh

300th sometime this season.

Detroit Loses
In Final Game
Chapman Hits Fourteenth
Home Run Of Season;
Tigers Out-Scored, 3-1
The Athletics dealt Detroit's pennant
hopes another blow today with a 3
to 1 victory that gave them the series,
three victories to one defeat. Sam
Chapman hit his 14th home run of
the season in the eighth for the
third Philadelp'hia run.
Freddy Hutchinson, making his
first start since the Tigers reclaimed
him from Buffalo, held the A's to six
hits but had the misfortune to pitch
against George Caster when the Phil-
adelphia hurler was in form. Caster
allowed Detroit six hits in winning
his third victory of the season.
Hutchinson struck out six and did
not walk a single batter. The A's
settled the issue in the third with two
runs, one of them unearned, on Pinky
YIiggins' errors and singles by Bran-
fato, Gantenbein and Miles.
The Tigers seemed on their way in
the sixth when Barney McCosky
opened with a triple, and Charles
Gehringer and Hank Greenberg
singled. Caster recovered, however,
to fan York 'and get Pete Fox on a
fly and Higgins on a force-out.
Hutchinson struck out Chapman
three times before the Philadelphia
centerfielder, with two strikes on him,
sent a long fly into the left field
stands in the eighth.
Humor's Role
Sanity Is Cited
(Continued from Page 1)
she has chosen to lie in. But we
need that humorist now!"
"I ask again, then, in this day of
two-bit American Hitlers, Lawso-
nomyites, Jehovah's Witnesses, Fath-
er Divines and Aimee McPhersons,
where are the Ward's, the Nye's, the
Mark Twain's to deliver those telling
blows of yesterday? We may sur-
vive without the humorous commen-
tator on the human comedy, but
survival would be infinitely more
pleasant with the humor than with-
out it."
Professor Williams distinguished
six phases of American humor, each
of which he said reflects an aspect of
our national existence and character.
These categories he listed as the
humor of the professional joke-crack-
ers, including banquet and vaude-
ville humor; the sardonic humor of
the cartoonist, such as Nast and
Bierce; the serio-comic reflections
of the columnists; the gentle humor
of the amateur observers of life,
sallies, puns and bon mots; the gro-
tesque humor of the professional
funny-men like Billings, Ward and
Nye; and the physical humor of the
frontier, the tall tales of Davy Crock-
ett and Paul Bunyan.
"Thus,?' Professor Williams assert-
ed, "America laughs, and nowhere in
all the world is the laughter so hon-
est, so true, so varied, yet so indica-
tive of a native spirit than here."
Professor Williams illustrated his
lecture by quoting liberally from the
works of various American humorists,
including Lowell, Artemus Ward,
Mark Twain and Will Rogers.

Dr. Odair Pedroso, recently ap-

University Hospital in Sao Paulo,
Brazil, is in Ann Arbor under the
auspices of the Rockefeller Founda-
tion to begin a summer-long study of
the workings of a large teaching hos-
The new hospital with which Dr.
Pedroso is associated is the first
teaching hospital ever built by the
state of Sao Paulo. The Rockefeller

Graduales To Hold
Symposium Today
Frst of three symposia on investi-
gations made by graduate students in
speech will be held at 4 p.m. today
in the Men's Lounge of the Rack-
ham Building.
Today's program will be devoted to
rhetoric and oratory, the second to
dramatics, oral interpretation, and
radio, and the third to problems in
speech science including phonetics
and speech correction.
Planned to give concrete studies
of opportunities for investigation,
graduate students will survey the
methods used by previous investiga-

est in the state medical school and
the plans for a new teaching hos-
Dr. Pedroso said that in 1925 the
foundation started its work by in-
viting a commission of Brazilian doc-
tors to come to the United States to
acquaint themselves with organzation
and construction problems of medical-
schools and teaching hospitals. The
new medical school was built in 1930
and construction on the hospital be-
gan in Oct. 1938.
A 1932 graduate of the Sao Paulo
school, Dr. Pedroso, was head of his
own laboratory until 1935. Since
then, he has been connected with
the Sao Paulo State Department of
Health. He was Physician Inspec-
tor of all the hospitals in the state
whether private or state owned.
Medical facilities in the state of
Sao Paulo as compared with those of
Michigan are shown by the following
statistics given by Dr. Pedroso. The,
Brazilian state has 5,000 doctors to
7,500,000 people while in Michigan
there are 6,362 registered doctors to
4,800,000 people. .
