There was nothing of Die plowboy In Marquard, but the lag, Rube, was' fastmcd on him because lie was big and lefl-handed and coming in as the immorial Waddell was passing out.

The rlglnally was scheduled for 411), but was posl|xmcd. Fritnle will give away about six rounds. LaMolla will come into he ring at aboul 157 and Zivic at bout 151. This means lhat Jake will be a bit below his usuiil n«lit- ng weight, and ?,ivlc will be a tood deal above his best poundage. LaMotta has the distinction of )elng the only person ever to beat Sugar Ray Robinson — Ihe "uncrowned king of the welterweights" —who's now In the Army, lie reg- slered a decision over the Harlem flash several months ago. LaMotla will have everything in ils favor— age, speed, and endurance, In addition to weight. The Bronx buzz-saw lias been installed as a 7 to 5 favorite In —but the boys there would like nothing belter than lo ;:ce then own odds proved wrong. Zivic, at the nge of 29, will have lo rely on his experience and craftiness lo outwit the younger I.a- Molla. Fiitxie is a master ft in- flghling, and there are few— if an —Iricks of the trade that he does- 't know. He's taken part in c rylhlng from icapartles to pier s rawls during his ring travels, and I ic's ready for anything Jake has| o oiler. An upset victory would mean re-1 icwcd life for Zivic in the welter-1 veighl division.

Tex Hughson of the Huston Red Sox was one of the wonder kids of the 1D12 baseball season. It was his first full year in the niajor leagues, yet he won 22 games — more lhan Einy olhcr American League pitcher. So far this year, Hughspn's record doesn't stack up so well. Uc- forc yesterday, he'd won four games and lost three. Some days he was hot— nncl couldn't be stop- lied.' Other days he was no more than fair. Yesterday was one of Hnghson's "on" days. Kc notched a neat :i to 2 victory over Ihe Washington Senators.. He defcaled two of the Nals' first-line pitchers. Dutch Leonard and Alex Carrasquol. For tlie firs! six innings he was invincible. ... He weakened In the seventh -and allowed a run. In the eighth he allowed another, on a homer by Alex Kampouris. IJul two first-inning home runs by Tony Lupien and Jim Tabor of Ihc Red Sox staked him to enough of a lead. And a Boston tally in the seventh- gave him the winning margin. In another American League Eilmo, Bob Mimcrief of the st LojiU Browns fashioned a G to 0 two-hitter over the Cleveland Indians. Gccrge McQulnn hit a four bagger with two on base to put the game on Ifie. A twilight game at Detroit saw the Tigers absorb a 3 to 1 beating from the Chicago White Sax. Johnny.
