NEW YORK, July 16 (AP)
Wlth a. world's light heavyweight
championship bout billed for
Thursday at the Yankee stadium
and a giant South American can
didate for heavyweight honors
making his debut tomorow night
at Ebbets Field, boxing followers
today found plenty of prospective
entertainment in sight and lots of
room for fistic speculation.
While the six foot, seven and
one half inch Victorio Campool,
Argentine slugger, wtl be watched
with considerable interest in his
tn-round encounter with Arthur
Dekuh of Italy, the battle of the
left jab and right hand sock be
tween Champion Tommy Lough
ran and ' "Jersey Jimmy" Brad
dock finds a wider diversion of
opion as to the vrobabe result.
Many astute followers of the
boxing game prefer to string along
with the champion's masterful
boxing ability in the IS round de
fense of his crown under the aus
pices of Madison Square Garden
but Bradd-ock's punching ability
as demonstrated against Pete Lat
o, Tuffy Griffith and Jimmy
Slatte-ry, has won a host of back
ers for the challengers.
Both wound up Bard training
today, Loughran working out at
his Hoosick Falls training camp
garbed in a heavy sweat shirt and
and long jeans.
From the Saratoga quarters of
Bradderk came a message from
Joe Gould, his manager, implying
a belief Loughran would have
trouble making the weight and
notifying the State Athletic com
mission that if such proved to be
the case the fight should lose its
championship status thereby, he
would demand more than the chal
lenger's 12Vi per cent of the
purse. Loughran's handlers, how
ever scoffed at the idea that he
would tip the scales at more than
the 175 pound limit when they
weigh in Thursday afternoon at
the Yonkeee stadium.
BERLIN, July 16 (AP)
With Germany meeting the United
States here this week-end for the
right to battle France la the
Davis cup challenge round, the
eager attention of all Germany is
focussed upon two young stars
who might has carried the father
land to new heights in the tennis
This c6untry never say such
white hot tennis enthusiasm as
has been evoked by the showing
of Daniel Prenn and Hans Molden
hauer, singles aces, in winning the
European sone final against Eng
land. In fact the German tennis
federation is in a quandary as to
what to do to accommodate the
thousands desiring to witness the
interzone finals against the Amer
ican team headed by Bill Tilden
on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The younger and perhaps more
promising of Germany's twin sen
, sations is Prenn. national title
holder since 1928 when he de
throned Otto Froitzheim, the un
disDuted chamnian for manv
ears. Bora in Leningrad, in 1904,
Prenn is Polish by extraction, Rus
sian by birth and German by
Prenn first claimed Internation
al attention in 1925 when he de
feated Baron Humbert de Mor
purgo, Italian star. Even then the
German tennis federation gave
him little chance internationally
but in 1928 he entered the Davis
cup games and played at Paris
Moldenhauer's victory over H.
V. Austin of ngland last Friday
Is said to be due largely to the
tactical advice given him through
out by Prenn who approaches him
after each change Of sides. In
doubles Prenn's success has been

"Pete" Reinhart have already passed the
world's refueling endurance record of 174
hours, 59 seconds and are still "going strong."
Fighting their way through fog and unfavor
able flying conditions which made contact
with their refueling ship, a Curtiss Carrier
Pigeon both difficult and dangerous many
times since their take-off from Culver City
Airport, Los Angeles, Tuesday July 2nd at
7:30 a. m., these sturdy fliers are proving their
own courage as well as the strength and en
durance of their ship and motor.
That after repeated tests, both Richfield gas
oline and Richlube motor oil were chosen
excliisively for this epochal flight that has sur
passed all others, is a tribute to their purity
and dependability; the same qual
ities that have made them the
choice of the worlds greatest
pilots and drivers; that make
Richfield and Richlube the ideal
