A "grudge fight" bet wren a lightweight pugilist and a baseball plleli- er resulted in a decisive victory foe Uie boxer, Nolan Lambert. Making Ills ring debut, Spot ncicl, the fasl ball pitcher, was on the rc;elvlm end.all the way. Apparently R:ld would do well to stick to hasefonll. at least unlll he learns more aboul the leather pushing racket. Suspender Ctats Limit Abraham Norwood and Mose Williams, two negro youngsters, pitched cloves In a four rounder which was delayed for several minutes while Abe's badly frayed overall suspender was re-lntorcNl. A b e pushed the light to win Ihe decision bill most of the fans were watching Abe's suspender in dire suspense. The sus|>ender went the limit. Five boys about 10 years old put on a torrid balle royal in Ihe opener. Howard Massey and Clayton Pou'Ier finally succeeded in eliminating the others after plnely nf action. The pair fought for two rounds and ths referee gave tham .a draw. They got a good hand and a good shower ot silver from the audience. Burton . was easily the underdog when the main bout opened. The lightweight, who had gained Incal prestige here and at Memphis, wns hardly e.ipcctc-d to show well against the St. Louis boy. 1'acc Fast It was evident JOOM after the Initial round opened, however, that Burton was going to, hold ur> iiL< 'end of the argument. Terry felt Burton out with a couple of right crosses but found Ihe Blyllievilb boy willing and ready to mix. The pace • was swift from the start. Terry, evidently under orders from his manager. George Wilson switched to in-fighting after the first" two rounds and constontlj strove to stay in close the rest ot the way. He whaled Burton consistently about the body but failed to slow up the local boy. Burton's lef jab tossed Terry's head back frequently and as they came in closer the St. Louis boy was forced to Hit his guard as Burlbn shot both hands to his face. Terry's right found Burton's face several times for hard jolts but It was slipping by Burton's head most of the time. The UTiter's score card gave Bur-Son .three rounds, the third, fifth uid seventh. Terry was awarded jne round. Ihe sixth, and four rounds were recorded as even. It ras a well earned victory for Buron, who has been something of an iri-and-outer in the past. In by fa: the best shape of his career. Burton Is expected to offer some strenuous opposition for lightweights over Dixie this summer. The semT-windup was parked lull of action. After c'slow start in the first round Seaton and Cobb fxig 1 ' furiously the rest of the way. Cobb • "resorted to butting tactics that were . plainly visible and after gMng Cobb a warning Referee DanehoTcr filially stopped Ihe bout and awarded Uie decision to Eeatcn.
