A" -packed grandstand and hundreds of fans standing witnessed the second evening's show Friday evening and en- thusmstically cheered and booed the various pugilists. One bout, the last on the schedule, ended in a disagreement which nearly drew the audience into a general fracas. There~were eight bouts on Friday Might's schedule. One of these, however, was merely an exhibition match not counting in thai race toward fair titles and and the final disputed bout ended in 1 a draw. Thus only six fighters were eliminated. Maxwell vs. Bud Smith The? fifst bout of the evening, featuring t'Butch" Maxwell, Bitely negro and Bud Smith, Ludington, fighting at 127 pounds, was ; a short affair. Maxwell bored? in .during the first round of the scrap, holding a slight ad- vantage*;6ver the local boy. At the efidtflf the first round, however, ^Mth conceded himself j beaten^-and gave the scrap to Maxwell*;without further contest. -;;..-:'/..• , • Wood vs. Fox Earl Wood, of Stronach, 125 pounds, won a decision from JohngOrf. Fox, of Wellston, also . 125 pounds. The scrap was a I close;; one throughout but Wood i displayed slightly better boxing to cop the nod. The bout was slow .with' considerable tumbling about by both fighters. £•' Wells vs. Arrington The third bout of the evening was_an all-colored battle, Johnny Wells of Muskegon, weighing 158 pounds, meeting Willis Ar- ringtorr ;of Bitely, 156 pounds. The first round was a slow one with Infills holding the margin over Arririgton until, in the last few seconds, he downed the Bitely ne'gro; Arrington remained on trjte^floor while the referee counfftdi^to seven at which time Arrington was,sa_ved i>y .the...,bell. Upon reaching his corner, however, he decided he had had enough for one night and notified Jkhe referee he Was quitting. (Cy GAYLE TALBOT) PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 16.(/P) —Tony Galento was back on rounds next time," he said earnestly as he peered out of his one pood e«e.

Regarded by a majority of critics as easy prey for the powerful California!!, round Tony came back to give Nova a fearful punching, knock him down four times and forced Referee George Blake to stop it in 2:44 of the 14th.

G. Rader started on the mound for Carrs and Rich for Scottville. Both moundsmen went the distance. The second and third innings were enough to give the Merchants a victory. With the hitters knocking out base hits with regularity the Champions rolled over six runs in the second frame and five in the third. That made the score 11-0. Carr being unable to anything with By JTJDSON BAILEY, (Associated Press Sports Writer) The American league flag fuss was down to brass tacks today and the 'New York Yankees all set to use them to nail the precious pennant to the mast. With arrangements already approved for the World series to open in the mammoth Yankee stadium Oct. 4, the club needed only to win from the Detroit Tigers today, or the Boston Red Sox to lose, to clinch New York's fourth consecutive championship. The Bombers dropped Detroit 10-3 Friday and the Cleveland Indians massacred Boston 7-1 to increase the margin between the two teams to 16 games with exactly that number left to play. Race Tightens The National league adventure tightened slightly again as the Cincinnati Reds divided a doubleheader with the New York Giants and the St. Louis no defeats. He spaced six hits effectively as well as bringing in one run with a double and hitting a single with the bases loaded for two others. , Red Sox Lose The Red Sox were victims of seven-hit pitching toy Willis Hudlin and a 15-hit offensive. The Philadelphia Athletics edged out the Chicago White Sox 3-2 with all their runs coming on Bob Johnson's 22nd homer with two on in the first inning. The St. Louis Browns bowled over Washington 9-5 with the help of six errors by the Senators. Cincinnati continued its recent terrific hitting in taking the first game of the doubleheader from the Giants 10-6 and running t a sudden winning streak to six games. Led by Ernie Lombard! and Frank McCormick the Reds got 18 hits. But in the nightcap errors and some ineffectual pitching let New York take a lead that was good enough to win 4-3 when AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L.

A large number of hard punches were seen in the scrap as the two negroes battled desperately for the victory; • Williams vs. Washington An .exhibition "oout between two • Bitely negroes furnished three rounds of let-up as the sixth item on the program.

Several' others awaited a let up in the weather. Still others, including Illinois i and Minnesota, got theirs in Friday. [ At Illinois a field goal from 20 yards out by Johnny White, a reserve back, was the extent of the scoring although Don Elting, j Junior halfback, reeled off runs I of 30 and 50 yards. I The Minnesota workout, a dummy scrimmage, cost Coach Bernie Bierman the services of three athletes for at least a week. Bruce Smith, Sophomore back, sprained his ankle, Jimmy Shearer, Senior quarterback, received a broken nose and Gordon Paschka, Senior guard, suffered a bruised hip. Ohio State prepared for its scrimmage today with a "tap" scrimmage which almost became the real thing as the "veterans" | put up a determined goal line stand against an all-Sophomore backiield. Kicking, passing and blocking drills were the order of the day Friday at Northwestern, Chicago, Wiscoasin, Purdue, Indiana and Iowa, the latter concentrating on pass defense. The Indiana session brought more woe to Coach Bo McMillin. Cobb Lewis, Junior halfback and rated the best passer on the squad, was ordered to the sidelines because of an appendicitis attack. Earlier in the week the Hoosier's ace pass receiver, Clee Maddox, was forced out with a dislocated shoulder. Michigan settled its tackle problem in a brief scrimmage in which the 217 pound Bill Smith and the 206 pound Eolan Bavilla demonstrated they would be difficult to move from the No 1 j positions. the first chapter dealing with women of China.
