In the backfield Krainsr can muster three lettermcn at one time. They arc Bropddn, Beck and Fisher. Not one of the three has had . enough experience to point th= way ' for the others.

For most figh'.s tlicsei days, from the larger cities on down through the smaller communities, are a laugh. The question that the fans all 1 want answorcd is: ''Is ii in the I has!?" And very often it is. The .lighters try to "make it look good." But in the second round, when a fighter sinks to the -canvas in- s'llrccl by onlv a healthy shove, the cry of "Phony" rends the rineswh air. Following fights in certain cities vliere the local product gels the benefit of a questionable decision, (he question is asked by fans-and boxing writers alike: '"What do you have to do to beat the local champ in his home town?" It is a hard question to answer. Few local champs can be beaten in their li'ome towns—even with a hammer. • • • In many cities fighters uncomplainingly accept (he worst of it.
