Vincent took a terrific beating throughout the first two rounds, and with anything less than an elephant heart, would have stayed out in the opening round.

The fight, originally slated to go eight rounds, came very near ending in the first, when after a momentary period of sparring for an opening, Benefield clipped Vincent on the jaw with a hard right hook. The Barksdale boy went down but came up almost simultaneously, and started throwing punches from all directions in-an efofrt to recoup the loss. The bell saved him from going down again as Benefield came wading in. In the second, Benefield, using his right to punish Vincent, and his left to keep him straightened up, poured hook after hook, each if which landed flush on the head and jaw, sending the Barkedale fighter to the canvas at least half a dozen times. Vincent, refusing to take the count, came up Immediately, although he was unable to stand straight when he did reach his feet, and came back battling. In the third, he walked, or staggered into a right that Benefield started from the floor, and was unable to rise, although he did make a couple of attempts to do so.

KELLEY Boston's Blaek Vole Without attempting to comment, since we believe the following letter, received today from one of our negro friends, is self-explanatory to the nth degree, we hand you the notice of organization of the Black Volunteers. We wish them the best of luck, rtot only because we know and like a few of the boys who are playing on their ball club, 'but because we believe that baseball, aa other athletic sports, are some of the most effective ways to increase good citizenship among negroes, aa well as decreasing the likelihood of criminal activities. "The Huston Colored Baseball Club, who have 'been respectfully named the Huston Black Volunteers, will play their first night game of the yeai:, Saturday, July 24, at Rowland Field, El Dorado, meeting the El Dorado Black Lions. Game called 8 o'clock. "Huston has one of the best negro teams in the state. Hard- hitting and fast fielding are their main points. The boys will play this game in their new suits, with the words Huston Black Vols lettered on them. "Don't worry, good people, we will strive to protect this name".
