Pritchard •knocked out (he awkward young Memphlan in the fifth round mid Was In front all thc wny but the bout at least carried plenty of action. •Nolan Lambert, local lightweight lasted through four rounds with Toni Rye Sei'.lou 'of Luxora, but £i?aton was ahead by ti decisive margin at the finish. To Lambert's credit, however he diet stage a fair finish after belni! shaken up rather thoroughly In a couple of 'rounds. Battling Davis. Sleele Mo. i'Clter, defeated Mike Roberts ol Blytherille hi the third round of a .scheduled four round bout, when Roberts. twice saved by the bell, tool; the count after Davis Itinck'tl .a couple . of solid blows. Two 1W> pound youths, James T'orsylhe and Howard Massey started the show >'ith a two round draw. The writer's score card, for Hie pmm bout gave I31anchard three, rounds with live rounds oven. Mc' Kinney\v;a.$ iiol disposed to make, much of a fight nnd Hi.: inoxiKrl- ] .eiicert Blylhevllle liny Imtl u prob-' lein; .that was perplexing. The Jans were out lor a battle but ilie punches' were few nnd far bc- "tifeen.. Blanchard did pretty well »t' Ions distance fighting but in ''close! he .was at a loss in handling McKinney. Wants Another Fight At the close of the, fight tlw deaf mute had the referee. Chester Danehower. announce that ho ifas not nt'.)iL<i test because of a fboil on his face and that he would like a rcttirn bout. Ills desire for utother bout here evidently was not enthusiastically received. Dummy did start the fight with a slightly swol'flii face and a bandaged cheek. When the fight ended 'the bandage had been .lost and the swelllnc was Increasing. So much for the main go. Kid Pritchard won the iirl :of headlining the next card by his fight -last night. Announcer Clarence Wilson told the tans otter the young Missouri bantam kayoccl Sato. Apparently It. wns all .the writer's 'mistake that Joe Saia was nounced as - the. opponent for Pritchard in -these columns. But really the only Saia we ever hear of in Memphis was the veteran llgntweight, Joe Sain. Jce. it swrns. has - a - younger brother named Ffa'nkie and Frankio it was who stepped Into the ring with Prltch- 'ard. . •" Frankic' is a southpaw with more than the usual awkward fashion and was an easy victim for the last moving Pritchard. But Frankie: was game and in exceedingly good . condition which accounted for- the fact that the bout went five rounds. Hext week's card will be announced soon. • .

Mr. niiK.=ell <Th!7?.l Arlelt, late of Oakland, Calif., has opened a slautl here, iirllit\^ considerable profit to himself and the Phils and whit-li, added to the thriving oil- j ernlions of Al Simmons, Jimmy Foxx. Mickey Cochrane and Chuck K'ein. makes this city of hrotherjy love the Icadlni; dispenser of the four-hasp nuneh. Mr. Arlctl has done so well that lie currently marches ahead of the field in th? annual parade of major league home run hitters. He also has been active 'at driving in runs and of laic his batting avcr- has been flaunted in bold i'f;- urcs with tho?.? of Ruth, Simmons. Cochraue, Ifornsby, Herman and others. • .* * For a time last winter, the slue- ddicicd natives here bemoaned (lie passing lr> other fields of Frank J. O'Doul. a favorite for two years. Tile pain of bereavement was eased somewhat with Mnnnacr Dnrt Shotton's . announ'ce'iuent (lint one cf the Oak'ind Ariel K nusjcll hv naiiip. would transfer his business to Plillly. Evon the most skeptical at that i-fnif ar« now convinced tint the Arletl homer has a decided kick. JThe 230-pound ' Oaklander has be- VAine mor--' pmiular in six weeks than O'Doul w'as in t,wo years. He has tisurned- much of the applause Phllly fan 1 ; vrn'ro wont to bestow upon Chuck Klein. The Buz/, was not always an outfielder and hitter of home runs. 'As a youth. Just reaching his ma- foritv. ho assumed a position on the Oakland nitehine staff and put frr ibe nrohibitivo orice put on him bv the Osks would have graduated in no time to the big leagues as a mound artist. " Record books do not reveal, and feu'z?, himself has forgotten, the number of games he won for the Oaks before 1920. However, in the seasons nf 1020. 1921 and 1922.

Since Buzz took up outlielding he has doliverert in excess of 225 home runs. Not sine? 1924 has he I hit below .328. and the years fol- 'owihg that saw him establish bat- ling 1 marks of .334 in 1025, .382 in 102C, 351 in 1927, .365 in 1 1928, .374 in 1920 and .361 in 1330. His richest harvest of home runs came In 1929 when he collected 33. • • • There was a time when the Buzz was regarded ns the perfect ball playor by critics on the coast. They said he combined the hittiiig force of Ruth, the fielding skill of Speaker, the leg speed of Cobb, and the arm power of Bob Meusel.

The Atlanta Vots beat the Nashville Vols 5 to 1 at Nashville. Gregory let the Vols down with four hits while his males hit Willis' offerings for 14, including Itomcrs by Carlyle and Eyon.
