A Joe Jacobs whose priceless sole isms became the nations catchwords is dead at the age of 4 1 bemused he failed to heed the Good advice embodied in the most widely quoted one of them All. Stricken with a severe pain around his heart a few Days acc fun Loving Russel insisted upon making the rounds As usual and dropped dead in a doctor s office to which he had finally been forced to go for treatment he should of stood in 1 bed. You Gael s death stills the nimble St brain and of Breaks up the f. Most color f u i team in the fight Racket. Everything Tony Jal Ento is he owes to the Peculiar Genius of the shrewd Little hebrew boy whose native wit a sharpened by a hard boyhood jul the Tough Lri a. Neighb o r la o o d where he was reared by a pious orthodox father there never was a combination like Jacobs and Galenic in All the Anglia or pugilist until Zumel look hold of i him late in his was practically unknown. Jacobs i brought out the colourful Side of Tony that All his former managers had overlooked and made him a National character almost overnight providing America with More belly laughs than All the radio comics put together. The Saga of Russel the muscle As Joe was called started when a pious jewish tailor came Here from Russia and settled above All places Iii hell s Kitchen. Here. Among first generation Irish american families he reared his blood the youngest and most precious of whom was Joe. Small and delicate Little Joey could us to Hope to hold hts own with the Tough Young Irish kids but he was compensated for his Lack of brawn by a keen brain which grew Keener As he used it to outsmart the Irish. While still in knickers the kids in those Days did no to Start wearing Long trousers at the age of eight Russel managed the two neighbourhood fighters Dave and Willie Astey. Attending Commerce High he Learned stenography and also some English and got a Job As office boy for dumb Dan Morgan thou the leading fight manager in new York. It did t take Little Joey Long to learn All of Dan s tricks and soon he brandied out for himself. During the world War he was i boxing director at Camp Hancock 1 ga., for Hie knights of Columbus Aud in i ii Post got along with the priests like one of the Irish i lads from i neighbourhood. After i the War in accumulated a stable j if fighters and quickly became recognized As one of Hie most resourceful pilots in the business with a flair for Ballyhoo that almost amounted to Genius. Only Jacobs would think of Matching an irishman with a Blackamor la Dublin on St. Fal Eer Galen Toricka a Day for the Light heavyweight title. The irishman was Mike Mctigue w Hom he managed and. Naturally. Mike won the title from battling Siki. The african in the Case. On another occasion Russel Mike and referee Harry Ertle whom he imported for the occasion had to flee in a automobile from Columbus ga., after a fight Between Mctigue Aud Young striding in which the a flux klan did no to like the decision in Lavor of Mike and threatened to show its disapproval with a length of rope. Jacobs acquired the sobriquet of Russel the muscle when he a muscled in Quot on m a x Schmeling who came Here from Germany in egg charge of a Ber a in sports writer named Arthur Buelow. Jacobs is generally credited with winning the heavyweight title for m a x by commanding him to stay Down and claim foul when Tony Galento Jack Sharkey hit him a questionable blow in the fourth round of their bout in the Yankee stadium in 19 30. Two years later in the Garden bowl when Sharkey won tile title from Schmeling on a doge decision. Russel was asked to say a few words Over the radio and in a voice Seething with indignation lie cried a we Vuz this immediately became a byword in boxing. Attending Hie opening game of ill a w orld series Between Detroit and St. Louis in 1934, he ran into a premature Snow flurry and exclaimed a i should of stood in bed the expression became a National slogan in a few weeks. A it Russel once brought the bitter criticism of his own people Down on his head by giving the Nad Salute in Hie ring in Hamburg. When Max Schmeling fought Steve Hamas. Accepting the outraged comments of hts co religionists with his usual Calm Russel inquired mildly a i wonder what they would of done if they were in the same Tough spot a As one who has criticised j a i cobs unmercifully i can attest i that he could take it Hefter than j anyone in the business. There was i never a squawk out of Jacobs and i when we met there was never a sign of unpleasantness. Of All the fighters lie managed i Jacobs idolized Only one a Max ii Schmeling. And Maxie rewarded i him for All he had done for him by treating him like an office boy near the end of their association after Hitler had invented the aryan race. Jacobs Best Job As a Ballyhoo Man was done on Galento whom lie picked up As a discarded Clown and. In a few months built into the contender for Joe i Ouist title who came closer to winning it than anyone else Joe has fought for the championship. Measured by the ethics of More respectable professions Russel was no Angel. Yet he never believed in injuring anyone unless it was absolutely necessary to do so in order to achieve his cud As in the Case of Arthur Buelow. And there Wasny to a More generous soul Iii the entire boxing Racket. Proof of this is that although lie made several fortunes he died practically Iii Hock. Anyone could get Russel a a Money with a sad Story. Into his 44 years he packed several hilarious lifetimes. Yet. He was Only in his prime when death swiftly struck him Down.
