THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1933 SPORTS SULLIVAN OUTPOINTS PAT VARNER IN BOUT By JIM DAY I N A close fight here last night Charlie Sullivan outpointed Pat Varner, another Home product. Pat, a clover boxer himself, forced Sullivan all the way, and the former Bak- ersfleld boxer was forced to employ his tnlented left overtime 'to build up a small but perceptible margin In points. It was a clever boxing exhibition, but the fight which Btolo the show last night, as often occurs, was the special event between Richie Franklin and Kid McFadden, a negro. Beat of Evening McFadden substituted for Sailor Waller and no one ever missed the Bailor after the negro got Into action against Franklin. These two boys swapped everything they had, and how they could take It! This scrap, a four-rounder, furnished the highlights of the evening, The decision was given as a draw, but In my opinion Franklin had the edgo In two rounds and the others were even. Gene Jons and Ernest Del Casal fought a cautious fight, after the hit n,nd clinch technique so popular In the big time among scrappers If not the fans. After two good preliminary events and the Franklln-McFatlclcn classic the fight seemed slow. The match was given ns a draw. A Rip-Snorter Joe Fernandez and Eddie Nolden fought through another rip-snorter with Joe taking the decision by a slight margin. There was plenty of slugging In this scrap and It was one of the best bouts of the evening. In the opener Stafford McCoy out- pointed Bobby Bnrr In a good scrap. Incidentally the first three bouts on the card outclassed the feature matches. The next card will bring together Qeorglo Akcs and Oeorgle Simpson In the main event. This has the earmarks of a fine bout.

The Instruction that your first hip action, in the down swing, Is to move tho left hip dlrectlonally toward a point somewhat In * r <? v front of the ball, ! jV BALL TO with the body ac- < ,\ RIGHT tion ceasing mo-| mentarlly right there, contemplates of course that you have, withdrawn your i right hip directly back, not out, In the back swing. Hence, at the top of the back swing, you find yourself looking along what might be contem- MOWEMENT ime extending from your right foot to the ball, as shown In the sketch. It Is parallel to this line, generally, that your hips move Initially In the down swing. I mention moving the left hip forward along this line, though of course both hips move , together, and what really happens Is ' that your whole body moves, this ! being merely the return to the left foot, Th* direction of this movement, however, as between being toward tho ball or being straight to tho left, has tho difference between good and bad , In the swing action.
