"By QUIN HALL
A NOTHEK foreign war will
l get under way at the
Yankee Stadium, New York
City, on the night of June 27th,
when Max. Schmeling, German
heavyweight, who resembles Jack
Dempey in looks, and Paulino Uz
cudun, Spanish tree whittler
from the Basque country, square
off in-the main 15-round event of
the show being sponsored by.
Gotham's big Milk Fund organixa
In view of the present heavy
weight situation, this Panlino
Schnteling attraction is by no
means a small time affair. In
fact, it is Just about as good a
bout as anything which could be
arranged at present. Dempsey's
future plans are still rather vagu?.
toharkey is being kept in the barn'tmay soon work bis way up to the
for a show later in the Summec
and Schmeling vs. Uzcudun should
draw enough fans to pack the ball
park, which is considerable in the
way of packing.
Max gathered a host of new
admirers when he polished off
Johnny Bisko, Cleveland. Baker
Boy, and the tough Basque,
though a rather .crude- boxer,
clicks with the fans.
Both these foreigners are con
sidered menaces in the ranks of
the heavyweights. Their New
York duel will eliminate one of
the pair. It should be a grand
battle as there is a lot at stake.
The winner will likely get another
engagement possibly against
Sharkey later rn the Summer
and will be in a spot where he
Paulino has a line of reasoning
to show why he expects to be the
next champ. He says that neither
Schmeling nor Sharkey can stand
swift gruelling for more than 10
rounds. Both these battlers have
been knocked stiff twice. Uzcu
dun has never been flattened. So
Paulino figures he will be the next
king of the roost. The Basque
may come through at that, espe
cially over a 16-round route.
The fans who are in the Yankee
Stadium, a week from Thursday
night, will see some terrific hitting
and then the fellows, who are wor
rying about Gene Tunney's suc
cessor, can mark another name
off their list after the tilt.

No deaths from heart failure
have been reported as results of
the 14-Inning ball game that Al
bany won from Salem on Olinger
iiem Sunday, but It's surnrisine
that there were none. There were
more thrills and anxious moments
in those 117 times at bat than in
any dozen ball games ever played
nere in tne past.
Winning a 14 inning game mav
be something for Albany to crow
