LOUIS KNOCKS SCHMEJJNG OUT Quickest Knockout Ever Known In Battle Of Heavyweights Joe Louis, the 24-year-old 'Colored boy from Alabama, made pugilistic history at the Yankee Stadium in New York Wednesday night, when he knocked out the German, Max Schmeling, in two minutes and four seconds, and kept the boxing champ ionship of the world in the United States. Joe Louis bested Jack Dempsey's record, made at the Polo grounds in New York in September, 1923, when Dempsey flattened Luis Angel Fir po in three minutes and fifty-stven seconds. Schmeling, a picture of confidence beforehand and favored by many to become the first ex-champibn in history to regain the heavyweight crown, never had a chance after the bell rang for the first round. The .champion took command on the first exchange, belted Schmel ing unmercifully about the head, and quickly had the German in dis tress. Max was on the verge of go ing down within the first minute, but covered and hung grimly to the ropes, near his own corner, as he tried desperately to save hirnself. Finally forced into the open, Schmeling went down on his side, with a rolling motion, after being clipped with a hard right to the head. He struggled to his feet, aft er only three seconds, only to meet another withering blast. On the second knockdown, Schmeling sprawled to all fours, after Louis fired both hands to his jaw. The German's eyes were glas sy, his mouth open, but his courage somehow pulled him back to his feet, after a count of only one. Hard Right Enda Bout Referee Arthur Donovan, rushing between the two as he waved Louis aside, grabbed Schmeling's gloves to wipe them on his shirt, then stepped aside. Panther-like, measur ing his man, Louis stepped in quick ly to deliver the finishing piyich. His right shot out, landed heavily on Schmeling's jaw, and the Ger man went down for the last time. Max rolled over on his side, in stinctively trying to regain his feet, but there wasn't a chance he could do so. At the count of eight, Mack Machon. Schmeling's trainer, tossed the towel into the ring and quickly followed it as he rushed to the aid of the beaten man. It was thus a technical knockout victory for the champion but it hardly could have been more dev astating or complete. G. L.
