Like a spark ' drifting Into a
curtain of black damp in some
coal mine, Joe Jacobs, spokesman
for the Teuton elouter, strolled In
the den of solons and the charged
atmosphere flashed lightning;.
"Mister Yokuos" wandered oat
dizzily a few. minutes later; faced

of the commission that Schmellng

James A.. Farley, chairman of
the commission, told Jacobs that
Schmellng must keep the promise

Sharker here last June. That
promise for an immediate return
bout with the Boston sailor was
not. kept d later was amended
to read "next June." .

ever, the Multnomah players have
