Smith Opponent Fails to Show For Fight Here Marvin Smith, one of the V. S. Navy's top heavyweights, won his scheduled fight here by default Thursday night when his opponent, Ted Eaves, of Kings Mountain, i C, failed to show up. Roy Turner, coach and man- man- juger of the Gaffney Boxing Team, of which Smith was a member several years ago, said Smith was "very disappointed" after traveling traveling from Norfolk. Va., for the bout. The Gaffney boxers topped Kings Mountain by winning seven of the eight matches. One bout ended in a draw. The event, staged at the National Guard armory, was for the benefit of the Cherokee County Boy's Club. About $100 was netted. Gaffney winners included Joe Sullivan, Woodrow Bridges, Billy Brown, Bumpy White, Thomas Medley, Roger Harris and Johnny Stephenson. The draw was fought by Mike McAbee.
