WATERLOO, IOWA, SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 1931 MILE RELAY RECORD BROKEN AT DRAKE GAMES As the PORTS EDITOR Sees It Chicago Cubs Trounce Cardinals, 7-1 THE TITLE CONTENDER. Des the twenty- fifth running of the Drake relays brought hundreds of great and near great athletes to this community over the weekend, it remained for a professional and a fighter to give me the biggest thrill. I refer to none other than Max the young Jewish lad who, if plans go accord- ing to Hoyle, will become the heavy- weight champion of the world hi June when he takes on Primo Car- nera in New York in a bout pro- moted by the Madison Square Gar- den corporation. Max was here Thursday night to stage an exhibition with his brother, Buddy; a local boy by the name-of Fields and finally big Seal Harris, a. Negro of these parts who, for one reason or another, seems to be always willing to tackle the big fel- lows when they are out in the sticks on exhibition tours. It was this same Harris, I believe, who crum- pled in the second round of a three-round exhibition when Jack Dempsey came to Des Moines two or three years back when he was touring the country and leading tnt on with the feeling that It was a 'test' tour to determine if he had the stuff for another fling at the business of regaining his title. It later developed that Jack was hard pressed for ready money at the time and he hit upon the rather simple expedient of. playing before packed houses in the smaller communities and it was always good for from two to three thousand a night. And as a matter of fact, he had no more intention of seeking to regain his crown than you or I had of mix- ing with him. But that is getting away from Baer. BAER PLEASANT SURPRISE. Described as the "Livermore Butch- er Boy" and like phrases, I was pleasantly surprised with the boy who, for many reasons, is or will be a top-heavy favorite against Camera when they get together in June. His managers told me that he had had but little education but he Is -a pleasant conversationalist; is apparently anxious to fulfill all but the most unreasonable requests and goes out of his way to please those about him or who come in contact with him. I was invited to join Bacr's par- ty following the exhibition at one of these many so-called DCS Moines 'night clubs' and he 'sold' himself to the some 20 newspaper men pres- ent. And he left nothing undone to give ample evidence, if such needed, that he is the 'play boy' that has been advertised to the fight public. Ancil Hoffman, his manager, and Jim Cantwell, his trainer, sat on either side of him and watched his every move with eagle eyes. Baer 'kidded' them continuously and reminded them not less than three times every minute that 'serious business' wasn't to start until they hit New York sometime Monday. MAXIE WORRIES BOSSES. The challenger drank -several glasses of beer, smoked several clg- arets and generally conducted him- self like a young American business man who, for the moment, was for- getting his the office. But Hoffman and Cantwell, while ap- pearing to take their charge's love for fun as n joke, are, in reality, concerned about the matter and know how much work must done in some six weeks if their meal ticket is to be in proper con- dition for the New York fight. It was no secret Thursday' night that Max was breathing rather heavily after playing around in his five rounds with three opponents and most of the time was spent in clowning. Baer, however, is touchy about his personal rights and refuses to be told not to do this or that and Is stubborn to the point that when told not to, he does it just to show hi.s bosses that he is the fellow who is making the money Confronted with this situation, Hoff- man and Cantwell try only to make suggestions and do it in such away that Maxie feels that he is doing the leading. CONFIDENCE OF VETERAN. Max is confident that he will lift ,ho crown off the head of Camera' vhen they finally get together. It is not a confidence that seems to be bred Into most pugs but rather a confidence which comes with the yenrs of hard campaigning which are now behind the California boy who, incidentally, is 26 and not 25 ns his managers claim. He talks about the impending fight almost constantly and maps his program but stops at the tenth round. He earnestly feels that it will be all over at that point. After meeting him and talking with him for more than hour, I am more convinced than ever that Max will be successful in his cam- paign. He's big, hearty and Lougn, he can punch and, the record shows; he can take It. The fight game needs a fellow like Baer to lead It out of the wild- erness. He has color, he's clever' and, perhaps most important of all. he will be good for a column of newspaper copy every. day. E. R. M., Jr. NAVY CREW DOWNS COLUMBIA.
