Louis Denies All
Charges; Claims
Gifts Lavished
Chicago — Adolf Hitler and
Joatph Stalin will probably kiss
and make up before Joe and
Mnrvn Louis take such action, it
appears today.
The heavyweight championpion
filed an answer Wednesday to
l»er divorce suit, which he denied
virtually all of his wife’s allega-
tiotiis and intrwluced some of hia
own own, among them the con
tention that she had not been a
“true and virtuous wife.” At the
same time he told how he had
lavished thousands of dollars up
on her,' and enrl«^d Ijy asking that
her plea be lenied.
The Rrown Bomber, who had
been reported coming to town for
a conference almost daily sinee
Mrs. Louis started action, finally
did arrive last Thursday and
spent a few hours here prior to
leaving for Minneapolis and a
boxing exhibition Friday night-
Joe spent most of the day jday-
ing golf, hut he is understood to
have called Marva- on the tele
phone. However, what they said to
eacK other is thus far a ssecret.
It was also lenrned from Atty
William Temple, the champion’s
counsel, that any talk of a .t2.')0,
000 out of court settlement for
Mrs. Louis was a pipe dream.
Thus far> he said, nothing along
that line had been suggested.
Sources close to the titlehold-
er are inclined to laugh at
Marva’s contention that Joe is
worth .15400,000 in real estate
and other $400,000 in annuities,
stocks and bonds and checking
accounts. Although he has gross
ed around $2,000,000 in his seven
years of professional fighting,

he has had to j)ay his luanagern,
Julian Black and John Koxbor-
ough, bus trainer, Jack Blackburn
as well as other training cnmp
exj>enses. This in itself knocked a
big hole in his earnings.
In adiniion. Uncle Sam has
taken hts cut through income
taxes and this alone amounted- to
several' hundred thousand dollars.
It is estimated that a heavy
weight champion ordinarily
spends .$1,K)0 weekly for living
expenses" becaiwe >€ his promin
ence in the world of sjrorts and
his nfFiliation with the niany tfbo
live iu the sjiorting world of
^‘,easy come, easy go.” An^vthing
less brands a titleholder as a
piker and many react unt'avor-
ablj' at fhe boxoflice iu future
The champion has also spent
considerable sums caring for his
mother and family, both in De
troit and Alabama. His interest
in pedigreed horses, of which he
owns several, also is expensive,
and' extensive. He is umlerstood
to have taken a loss on his soft
ball team of a tew years ago.
According to his answer Wed
nesday, he has spent more than
$125,000 on Marva in the nearly
6 years of their marriage. H-* has
given her everything financially
to make her happy, including an
automobile or two eacti year, a »
allowance of * $.100 weekly pin
other gifts ranging from“Tl»5tXt-'tt
$5,000. But Mrs. Louis has been
such an expensive item, the peti
tion .says, that he has been coiu-
l)elled to pay her other bills and
obligations amountin'" to another
$4i000 to .$6,000 anmally.

Jefferson City, Mo. — The
Missouri supreme court Tuesday
upheld the decision of a lower
courtj which denied Lucile Blu-
ford, managing editor of the
Kansas City Call, the right to en
ter the University of Missouri
school of journalism. The court’s
decision was based on the conten
tion that Miss Bluford was not en
titled to enter the white univer
sity “because of the l»ck of jvre-
vious demand on Lincoln univer
sity. ’ ’
However, the court held that
the University of Missouri must
accept Miss Bluford “if upon
proper demand and after u rea
sonable time the desired eoprne is
not available at Lincoln univer
sity.” The decision pointed out
that the state is making an at
tempt to establish a school of
journalism at the Ni*gro univer
sity. f'
In a unanimous ofinnion the
court said it was the “duty of
tiiis court to maintain Missouri’s
policy of segiTgation so long as
it does not come in conflict with
the federal constitution.”
According to Atty. Sidney Red
ond, NAACP lawyer who with
Atty. Charles Houston is repre
senting Miss Bluford, a motion
for rehearing has been filed. They
contend that the state is not
providing etjual opportunities for
Negi'oes if they must wait for
tacilities desired.
