Tiie local leather pushers directed by Joe Ciais; flashed plenty of class in competition with some of the front rank amateurs from Temies- „„„ . , „„,,„ . see, Mississippi and Arkansas. Fo,,r ) ™ d ±!S,.!'; . members of the local squad won their three round contests by Judges' decisions, while two won by technical knockouts when the referee stopped the fights to save their opponents unnecessary punishment. Sonny Lloyd, local ll»M\veig}it drew a bye In the pairings and was the only member of tlie team who did not appear on last night's pro- bo us spectacularly successful In Brooklyn as he was In Columbus mid Cincinnati.

MncPlmil played minor ball himself, and knows tv ball league gram. However. Lloyd Is scheduled (o sec Bctfon Wednesday afternoon or Wednesday night against one of the lightweights surviving last night's matches. Perhaps the most Interesting bout from the standpoint of fans from this section was the match won by James "Bab" Roberts, local boy who is defending the light heavyweight championship he won last year. Roberts scored with jolting rl'hts and lefts to pile up n bte lead over his opponent. James McLeinorc of Huntlngton. Tenn., before the referee stepped In and halted the light, awarding Roberts (lie bout on a technical knockout. The fight had entered the tlilrd round when the referee hoisted Roberts' hand. Roberts, who enrolled at the University of Alabama after winning' the Golden Gloves diminution series here recently, returned to Memphis from Tuscaloosa to participate as i\ member of the local team. In the novice class, hard hitting little Atlas James of Holland, Mo., scored the first victory for the locals by winning an easy decision over Jack Robinson of Memphis. Carthol Hyde, Blytheville featherweight, outpunched Loren Brings of Little Rock in a match that was fast and full of action. Blytheville's third win came when Aaron Byrd, local representative ii the welterweight division, mixed II up witl^.Willlam Seymour of Mc- Kenzle, Tenn., winning a unanimous yerdict.pver the Tennessee boy.. One of the neatest boxing exhibitions ot the entire program was furnished by Hugh Harbert. jr local middleweight, who gained i technical knockout over Nolan Tucker of McKenztc, TCIUI. Tucker barely laid a glove on Harbert during the entire three rounds while Harbert scored frequently with both hands, dancing away lo elude Tucker's wild swings. The straight punching of little Ttlchard Roberts. Blythevlllc paperweight, who was forced to fight In the open class because there were no other entries ot his weight In the novice division, won him a well deserved victory over Marlon Cook of Memphis. It was a stirring exhibition by Roberts in view of the fact that Cook was a more experienced fighter. Roberts' win means he will meet the highly touted Sammy Berzansky of Memphis In the finals Wednesday night. Berzansky won over Jack O'Callaghan 1 matter of unethical conduct, con- of Tupelo.

Not. tlml there was aiiyllilni; ac- liuilly secret about the FYml Foundation. It was Incorporated in a routine way in January. 193G, witli a nominal capital of $25,000, for the iisuii) "sclentIlia, educational ntid charitable purposes." It aroused almost no notice at that time,' lint when ,!hc story got out recently that Ford was about lo begin a giant 4000-unlt housing program at Dearborn, attention was drawn lo the Ford Foundation, because the 1300-acre tract hud been deeded lo It. Most of the land had bocn the personal property of the Fords. Some belonged to the Ford Motor Co. Expect Mousing Mayor John Carey of Dearborn, and other city officials, fully ex|)ec.l some sort of housing program to gel under way on the donated Ford by midsummer, available not only lo Ford employes but to others. But the tract Is not plaited, no plans have been received for approval. Installation ol utilities would take two months. Tlie wooded llalland of Hie tract adjoining the. great Rouge plant ami stretching almost across to tho "old" part of Dearborn, offers space for housing apparently far beyond llic current needs of Dearborn, where CM new houses were built in 1937 anyway. Tlie laud is worth between three- quarters of a million and a million dollars. The only possible way in which H could be of nny benefit to n charitable foundation would be for the Foundation to sell or rent It and add the proceeds to Its assets. At present the vacant land producing nothing, is a liability bc- Wins Rough and Tumble Battle; OJsen Disqualified In Preliminary Big Mike Nazerian lived up to expectations in his match with Roy Welch here last night at the American Legion iireim. staging a rough and tumble battle from tlie opening gong until he was finally subdued by Welch, who look the first and final falls to gain the decision.

Price was not hurt when the referee stopped the fight in the second round, but Dwyer had an unquestionable advantage and further fighting was unnecessary.

Only a Larry MacPhall could talk the recalcitrant Brooklyn owners into agreeing on anything. Experts had been trying to do that for 13 years, but MacPhall wound up In complete charge and with a three-year contract at $20,000 a year. MacPhall Is lo settle all disputes between the rival factions, and will do so with considerable authority, Inasmuch as he has the backing of both the National League and a bank which the club owes $350,000.

Ole Olsen lost the final fall to' Lou Miller in their preliminary match when he was disqualified for gouging his opponent's eyes. Tlie disqualification spelled defeat for the poker faced Swede, who had won the second fall with a crab hold, but who had lost the first to Miller with a flying finger lock.
