PAGE SIX LOSES LOCI Blyitieville Is Paced To •Victory By Harbor! Thursday Night • BY J. 1'. FRIKiVt) Hugh "Tex" Hubert, jr., crack rnlddleweight. last night bounded Into local limelight as a worftiy successor to James "Bab" Roberts ns Blythevillc's No. 1 hope In (he Mid-South Golden Gloves tournament In Memplils which opens Monday night, by lending the CMcknsaw Athletic Club amateur boxeis to n 4-2 victory over Jones- l)oro. Spotting more tlitvn twcntj pounds In weight and corres|»ti<i- Ing physical advantages, "Tex 1 easily outpointed Hufiis McD.aiiic 1 in the three round main event to make the team margin more secure. BIythevlIle was leading 3 to 2 until the finale. Hnrbert weighed 154 and McDanlel's weight mis unofficially given at 1TC pounds. Five Knockouts With the exception of the first and last bouts, all ended In knockouts. Henry Muery, 126. Blyttie- ville, substituting for Cartliol Hyde who Injured his left thumb during workout, knocked out Robert Strickland, 128, Jonesboro. In the first round. Roy Sellers, 175, JoiH's- boro, gained 11 technical knockout over Andrew Mayo, 161. Blytheville, in the first round. Alias James. 115, BIytiievlllc, was awarded a technical knockout over H»«Ji Reed, 118, Jonesboro, when Heed's seconds threw in the towel to start the third session. Horace Walters, 140, Blytbcvlllc, subbing lor Herb "Cue Ball" CliIMs ivho was unable to get otr from work, registered n surprise by scoring a technical knockout over Glenn Spurtoek, 145, Jonesboro, former National Guard champion, In the first round. Kcrmlt Rhen, 1!)0, Jonesboro, received credit for a two round knockout over Starling Young, 193, BIythevlIle. The scheduled match between Adrian Taylor, Jonesboro, mid Aaron Byrd, BIythevlIle, did not materialize due to sickness of Tnylor. Blllle Price was nimble to appear as -no opponent was available, ns usual. Tex Gives Lesson Hnrbert gave McDaniel a boxing lesson that will long be remembered. Moving swiftly, countering and leading alternately the situation demanded, Hugh fought perhaps his best fight. He cleverly evaded his (all opponent's powerful right, piling up an enormous point margin in nil three rounds. Only ouce was he In seri ous danger. Late in Hie second round McDaniel caught him on the chin coming out of a clinch. Momentarily stunned, HarbeM. failed to cover up. McDaniel slashed out rights nnd lefts to the head but did not have power enough to pound him l o the floor. Tex slipped away and boxed nt long range until the could brush away the cobwebs. He received the unanimous verdict of Judge.^ A. V. Smith Dick Potter and Herschel Bobo and a thunderous ovation from the good size crowd. Walters Surprises Horace Walters, n novice boxci if there ever was one, provided the most pleasant surprise of the program. Putting on the gloves in open competition for thq time after receiving some general instructions from jay Craig only u lew hours before, Walters swarmed all over menu Spiirlock in tin first round, floored him twice wild terrific right hand punches, nni punished him <,o .severely lha Spurtoek decided lie Md enoii"! and quit.
