For a short time, Bratton held the National Boxing Assn. version of the welter title. Now that Saxton has taken over, Bratton again has championship ambitions. It has been proved quite convincingly in Chicago last year that he had no chance of ever beating Oavilari. Bratton takes a career record of 59-22-3 into the St. Nick's bout, to be televised by Du Mont in some parts of the country. Varona has a 5S-16 record. Carmelo Costa, unbeaten Brooklyn featherweight, tops the card at Brooklyn's Eastern Parkway tonight against Rudy Garcia of Los Angeles. Costa answered some of the questions that had been asked about him when he shook off Gene Smith's solid punches and came on to win in his last start. In 26 pro bouts, Costa has 23 victories and 3 draws. Garcie won the California feather crown in his last start, beating Al Cruz.

D.C. * 10/18-36-11/1-8 Water is a commodity so precious that no tyrant has ever dared deny The earliest records of our civilization are linked to the spring and the walerhole, the river and the well. The Children of Israel faltered in the wasteland and were ready to revolt until Moses struck the rock and brought forth a spring. Wars have been fought over water rights and once mighty nations have vanished because their water resources failed. Men have battled to the death over the last few drops in a canteen. Formidable fortresses, impregnable in other respects, have fallen because of an insufficient water supply. Ships' masters have had to risk the destruction of their vessels and the slaughter of their crews because water shortages forced landings on Families have given up their homes and deserted their properties because of failing wells and dried-up water courses. London was virtually destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century and Chicago reduced to ashes in 1871 because sufficient water could not be delivered to the right place at the right time. What is water worth? Water is beyond price—so far beyond price that water is free of all Blytheville Water Co.
