FUIEND JONESBORO, Jan. 18,—Brylhe- vllle's amateur boxers pounded out a 3-1 victory over tli e Jonesboro team here last night tit the Community Center, in the first intercity mtitrh. Joe Craig's promising proteges scored a knockout, won two by decisions, earned a draw, and dropped one judges' verdict. Atlas James, clnmky 115 pounder, hung up the only kayo of the even- Ing by putting Joe Stewart away for the count In the first minute of , tiie first round of the first fight. But the crowning event of "the action-filled card was the slum- bang three rounder between James "Bab" Roberts, mid-south Golden Gloves light heavyweight champion. and Cecil Pemberton, giant 190 pound Golden Hurricane tackle, listed as the main attraction. Although Roberts failed to register a knockout, or even a knockdown.. he battered Pemberlon from pillow j to post and easily gained the unnn-! itnous decision of the judges ami' referee. !

According to oin- calculation, Lloyd took the second and third rounds by comparatively wi'.le margins, while Sevecr won the first. Lloyd's weaving anil bobbin* caused Seveer to miss badly.

Spin-lock, tired badly, spent a major part of the second and third cantos clinching. . Childs might have scored a third round knockout had he been more experienced. A short right caught Spurlock flush on the chin and caused his knees to buckle. He fell into a clinch and held on until the haze could clear. Tt'^ Tavlor-Byrd affair was a thrilling go between two evenly matched boys. Taylor, the more experienced battler, outfoxed t h e j willing Byrd, cleverly tying him up j whenever in danger. Byrd scored u; knock-down in the second round. I but Taylor was up without a count. Taylor scored at long range will) n i powerful right hand and kept Byrd I at bay with a straight left. Aaron ] kept boring In throughout and got in his share of the blows. Bothi were bleeding at the nose at the end.. : Thrilling Bout Billed as a grudge fight. Roberts and pemberton gave the fans something to stand up and cheer about. Vastly inexperienced but willing, Pemberton proved to be nothing more than a punching bag for "Bab", but took it standing up. After an exciting first round flurry in which pemberton hemme'd Roberts up in a neutral corner and flayed him with rights and letts. there was no question as to the supremacy. Once fathoming (he awkward southpaw stance, thanks to Joe Craig who seconded all the youngsters, Roberts methodically cut him to ribbons. He slashed boll) eves, battered his nose and cut Ills Up badly. One of the biggest thrills occurred In the second round when Roberts slipped and went to the floor, pemberton. excited and eager for the opportunity, landed several blows before the referee could separate them.

The contest will be played in the Missouri city. Ellorts are being made to book an opponent for February 8. Simultaneously, the cage coach said that .several changes may be made in the present schedule but was not ready to make them public now. Although victorious in tbelr first two starts, the Chicks failed to live up to expectations. In then- opener at Wilson they flashed good form occasionally but as ,1 whole they failed to click as the big chief and fans had hoped.

The defense has been adequate, but inability to crash the basket Is causing no little concern. It Is likely that he will experiment with new combinations dining the week In an effort to perk up the goal making department. There Is a possibility that Hueties may go to forward, replacing Charles "Peck" llardin. Homer "Bo" He.sharse, an experienced eager, may take the back guard post. In the second half against Sbawnee when Hughes went to forward Hugh Harbcrt was inserted at guard. Lanky Dan Warrington hi the scoring with 20 points for 'thi two games, but even at that he Is far behind his usual form. Hardln. Hie other forward, has tallied only four points. "Wild 1 Bill" Godwin lias tallied 13 points, a small amount for him, too. Russell Mos- Icy and Hughes, the guards, have been able to register but 10 points between them, the former making nine. A redeeming feature lias been in Hie free throw department. In eighteen Iries from the seventeen foot line, the chicks converted ten times. At Wilson they missed ))iit two of seven, and completed live out of eleven attempts, Friday.
