He handled imiself well. tl 10UBh llot pavtlcn- nrly. pressed, and indicated that lie way go places in the game. H took Jimmy just slightly more IJian n minute to convince Downing,,also a novice, thai he should have remained al home. For during the 07 seconds lhat the fight lasted Downing hit tiie deck once after being clipped on the chin with a chopping short, right smash and was on the receiving end of countless left jobs lhat popped back and forth like t\ well oiled Irip hammer. Had not "Wild Bill" decided he had eiiough when he did it is quite likely that he would nave been officially counted out. Ho was draped over the ropes when lie indicated to Referee Don Burton timt he was through. Despite the fact that the first lira matches ended in one round technical knockouts, due (o un|(- avoidable mismatching, it v-as an r excellent show; one that should pack 'cm in through the gate If Promoter Craig i.s fortunate lo secure more like il.

That baby here 0:1 out. lie's JILSI a lonely sort of cuss with a Garbocsquc penchant for aloofness. The fiiiihcr he can slay away from other horses the better lie likes il, and ho likes it best out In front. But If some trim-legged little number comes winging down thai straightaway al Jamaica tomorrow and llien keeps right on going until lie feels the caress of Mall Winn's rose horse-shoe around his neck on May 4— well, It wouldn't be liic- time. Johnstown, for instance did it Jasl year. Gallant Fox did it' back in 1932. Otrmlm didn't win the Wood, but if he had had about the same distance as there Is between the ordinary living room and kitchen left to run, he would have won it. When I mention distance let me state ' ' ' rain hero thai, his condition for Ills Inaugural was not loo good.

Only .sonietliliij- smashing can alter Blmclech's slums now. and when I say smashing I mean new track or world record time. STANDINGS Soulhfrn here that tomorrow's Wood will be the most Important, ever run. In past years this fixture has been held over a course that measured a mile and 70 yards. This year, however, it has been stretched to a full mile and a sixteenth, so it will take a bit more horse with a btl more run lo win it. JusL what horse that will Iw I frankly don't know. There arc at least two dozen horses eligible, and galore in the other three that sent, the small but enthusiastic bunch of fans away singing praises of Hie willing youngsters. All but one ended via the lech-! i meal knockout route. Hugh Harbert, local high school star athlete, and MidSotitli Golden Gloves nov/ce middleweight, champion iti 1038, gave Harmon Hatcher such a lacing for three rounds lhal the Manila middleweight failed lo come out lor the fourth and last. , in the past performance chart of the rat-ing form they all look us spotty as the Dionnc quintuplets with simultaneous cases of straw- Billy price, Manila ace, gained revenge over a previous defeat by whipping Alton ChcnowiUi, Blytheville. in four fast ami furious rounds. Kid Hoskins, a southpaw from DclI.-i.quUi in. the first,. rouiul lo Johnny Culleiis." Manila, us did Bud Farmer,' Blytheville, to Duttc Tipton, Manila. Mullens and Tip- Ion were much too large. Making his first ring appearance in more than a year, Harbert displayed the same sharp shooting 'qualities that brought him Golden Gloves fame. He easily outboxed and outslugged Hatcher and was never in danger. The first, time he let go with his lethal right, it landed true to its mark on Hatcher's jaw and he slid to the floor. Ht? was up at the count of four. Later in the round "Tex" racked him with lefts nnd rights. Hugh floored his larger opponent again in the second. From an action standpoint the Chenowilh-Pricc go was the highlight. From Ihe Opening bell the two lightweights began throwing leather and didn't- let up until it- was all over. From this comer, it- appeared that Price held the edge throughout. The first round was fairly even, but in the second Billy cracked Afton on the nose and the beak bled profusely throughout. Price had wide margins in the:third and fourth and was entitled to the decision. berry rash and the measles.
