K FRIEND Tlirtf: of lhe local amateur boxers who K'on novk'R cliamiiioiishlps In Die Mld-Soiilli Ooldeii Gloves tournament at Memphis will appear 011 a boxing card Jiere tonight nl tlie legion arena when the Chtck- asaw Athletic club team clashes witli a similar group represc-jilins the Stuttgart Boys Club. Aaron Byrd, hard hittlni; welterweight, will face Gerald Craig, one of the best boys on Billy Slscoe's team, and Atlas James, the Holland, Mo., mite mixes punches with Bob Hair in tlie flyweight division. Hugh Harbert, who copped the middleweight crown, has not sufficiently recovered from a rccenl illness lo coinpele, Dircclor Joe Craig was advised by his physician, but Craig hope.s lo have him avail- able'by March 4 when he takes his youngsters to North Little Hock for 11 team match. While the appearance of the champions—their first since winning their lilies—no tloubt will hold lite center ol attraction, there Is every possibility that the heavyweight match between Blylhcville's Starling young and Harry Williams will steal lhe action spotlight. Since lUs second round knockout by tlie jonesboro star, Kermlt uhea, young has developed rapidly under the careful lulclagc of Craig. In order to take advantage of his great height and because of n .natural Inclination, Joe is teaching Young lo fight, a la the late William Stribling. Standing well on his toes, Young keeps his left hand perfectly rigid and does his damage from Uiat pose. An adept pupil. Starling caught on quickly and Is handling hilli.wlT like a veteran. Yeslerdny ugainst a lighter opponent—a mld- dleweiglil^-atarllng rocked him with solid left jabs nm) hooks and terrific right hand punches until Craig called a halt. Finding someone to mix It with him is going^ lo tie Craig's biggest trouble from now on as he has no one \vho is capable of standing up under his power. The Chickasaw coach is seeking a big. negro to acl as a human punching bag. Another youngster who is developing fast is Henry Mucry. 126 iwiinder. Henry scored a knockoul In ;ihc Jonesboro match and It served ns a good. tonic. He Iras worked hard, and is fast becoming a. left hook artist. His greatest tendency is too much hooking ' with the left and not enough throwing of his right. Henry and John Prioi are staled for action. ' Horace Waller, the novice middleweight who was impressive with a knockout, in his first try with the gloves, is another boy -who is Improving and should take care ol himself. He Is a natural clouter. He Is booked with Jimmy Sclicrm. Sonny IJoyd, the team's hard hid fighter, has not been able to do any ring work because of basketball, bul Craig expects him to be all right for his match with Charles Appleby. Lloyd has fought three times but has been awarded but one decision. Capable ring observers were of the verdict in his encounter -with John Shelby of Memphis. Sonny is colorful. His weaving and bobbing style catches the fancy of the fans. Few gave George Pruilt, 155 pounder, much of a tumble when tile first call was issued six weeks ago. Quiet and unassuming, George went about his business with little (o say. He was beaten in the eliminations but continued to come out. Now he is classed as one of the most dependable members ol the team. He is a good defensive boxer and as soon as he learns to punch will give most amateurs some trouble. Carl Smilh Is scheduled with him. Opponents for two skeeterwelghts. Chester Newton and "Wild Bill" Newton will be secured to round out the program. . The first bout is scheduled for S p.m. The Dope Bucket Ky I'. Friend (ARK.)
