FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1040 Lunsfoi-d, Harbevt, Price, Cheno\veth, Thompson lurn In Wins By J: l>. FRIEND Jimmy Lumf-ttl, Blylheville's newest heavyweight .sensation, received his first important 1-1113 test last night ard passed u, with flying colors. Tho 200-poiind giant ami protege of Joe Craig easily gained Ilic decision over Joe "Biul" O'Stcen In four rounds to lead Ihe local amateur boxers to a 5-1 victory over (lie Ripley, Ten;:., learn.' Although vastly inferior in experience, Limsford nevertheless was the complete master. He not only won every round by wide margins, but scored a knockdown in the third, dislodging a. front bridge in O'Sleen's mouth. At the finish Bud's left, eye was almost closed from Jimmy's —powerhouse right hand swashes, his left was slightly discolored and his body a crimson red. Lumfuid Unnmkcd Lunsfovd escaped without a mark, although he stepped one of O'Stcen's punches In the second round that brought a trickle of blood from lib, nose. Only experience saved O'.Stcen from a possible knockout on two diffcrert occasions. Lunsford clip- lied him- on the chin with a right cross and appeared to have him out i on his feet. But he fell into a clinch ' and held on until the cobwebs cleared his brain. Again in. the third the visitor was in bad shape after taking a nine count. But lie wisely climbed aboard his bicycle and pcdnlcd out, of danger until he could recover. After the fight O'Stcen, who has participated in two Golden Gloves tournaments and in the A. A. u.. praised Craig's pupil. He said he was too strong for him and predicted that he would "go great" in the Golden Gloves. Harvert Wins Again Hugh Harbert, Blytheville high school star athlete and former Golden Gloves champion, turned killer ami battered Tubby Taylor into submission in a couple of round,';. Weaving and bobbing like a cork on turbulent waters, "Tex" was never belter. He wc.-.t right loj work on Taylor after a brief -reeling out" and wasted few punches. He knocked Hie Ripley youth down three times in the first round and had him sitting on tile floor in his own corner as the gong sounded' for the end of the first round. Taylor made n desperate rally at the start of the next round and it probably hastened his downfall. After eluding Taylor's wild rushing or a few seconds, Hugh came up with a vicious left tliat landed flush in tho middle of Tubby's kisser and ho landed flat on his face and ivas counted out by Referee Don Burton. Another for Price Billy price, Manila's representative, also won a two round knock-out, over Van Montegue.

Jenkins has the belter punch—one clean shot with Ills right fist and Ihc curtains come down-bnl a right Is a sucker and Ambers is no sucker. A guess on tonighi's fight is that the champion will finish off the challenger around the tenth round after havir.g weathered a few rough sessions near the start, of Die fight. Afton Clienoweth and Ed Drumwright staged a three-round slugfest that proved lo be Ihe aclion highlight with Clienoweth winning , the decision.

Not just two ordinarily lough guys lint a pair of men who came up" the hard, hungry, sordid way, whose souls have felt too much hurt to fear what fists can do to their bodies. Jenkins is a biller cuss from Swcetwater, a. lowii that sprawls midst, tho tumbleweed ar.d sage brush between El Paso and Port Worth. Every dime he ever had he got the hard way. He's ridden the. rods, busted broncs, hustled for his food, and fought in grubby halls for the price of a bowl of ;oun. All this hns left its mark, Inside and outside. There's no warmth to tire man, not even to his manager or his trainer. He talks tough, lives lough, and is lough. Those who are weary of nightclub fijhters who rhiimba, play a musical instrument and read docks will like Jenkins. His SI Hubbarcl Beats Coca Cola; Y-8's Win Over Ark-Mo "»'»<»"•"* .
