Joe Louis Knocks
Out Conn In 13th
The path of roses which Billy
Conn tred last night for 12 rounds
as he pounded and pelted Joe Louis
about the ring, became a briar
patch of defeat, as the Champion
came to his old fighting self and
sent home the punch and also the
60,000 customers and his crown
back on its pedestal.
Conn had his way for 12 rounds.
Joe took charge of things in the
13th, and brought them to a quick
end, as the highly rated, and pre
dicted champ hit the floor for the
first down of the fight.
Predictions were that Conn would
send the Detroit boxer to his Wa
terloo, charging he had lost his
incentive; had been eating too
much, didn't need the money and
for lack of opposition was not in
spired. The experts will likely explain
today, that the 12 rounds of ter
riific punching which Conn inflict
ed upon him, brought Joe to his
old self, as he waded in on the
13th round for the smashing blow
that sent Billy down like the tor
Conn was rated as a good boxer,
but lacked punch.
Louis had the winning punch, and
retained his title.

The first feminine Revolutionary
War tfasparty took place in Eden

Says BiH Tilden
CLINTON, S. C. Donald Budge,
united States professional cham
pion, is the greatest player the
courts have ever seen,
Such a statement comes from
none other that William (Big Bill)
Tilden, who should be something
of an authority on the subject of
tennis topnotchers. r
Big Bill has ruled a few courts
hirmnlf, but to his way of thinking
Don is "tops,"
Tilden believes that Budge pos
sesses more natural ability than
any player he has ever seen.
Perfect physical fitness and the
heritage of a perfect "tennis build
have aided Don Immeasurably in
his climb to the top of the net heap,
according to Tilden.
Big Bill said;
"Watch Budge in action. Despite
his 185 pounds, he is exceptionally
fast He is constantly moving his
feet when waiting for the play, thus
enabling him to make a quick
break for the ball when he has
diagnosed its direction. He is just
"Budge is the greatest tennis
player of all time," Big Bill be
lieves, and his attack for 365 days
in the year is the most devastating
the world has ever known.'
"Ellsworth Vines may have been
more brilliant on certain occasions,
but over the sweep of a season's
play, Don is the greatest, of them
aU," Tilden concluded.
Tree glory takes root and even
spreads; all false pretenses like
flowers, fall to the ground; nor
can any counterfeit .last long.
