.. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MARCH. Iti, 1932 Boston Depends On These Players Toinmy Larkin 1 Turns Out .To Be Albert Thornton; Bald Eagle Trims Elliott Hcniy "Cyclone" Burke \v<n\ an. oilier match at Die armory hero last night by tossing ati opponent appearing as Tommy larkln of Cincinnati, Ohio, wlx> boxed here last sumrher'as Albert Thornton of the government fleet stationed near Cn- riithersynie at, llw limp. Burke won the 'first' fall In about 21 uilimles with a.body pin. following a scries o/rflyiog males and .repealed In uir.e minutes. .. . • . In tlie scmi-wincliip John "Sunar" Elliott, local' wrestler, lilemllj 1 knocked himseU out and Bald Eagle-of-Memphis won the clcciOlne fnll of tlielr mfltch with apparent -'ease; EUSoU put himself In shape for the Memphis wrestler to win without, trouble by a series of hc.id- long'dives, supposed-to he Ilylrrg i sickles, which left Elliott grogsy and an easy victim; . In a preliminary bout Blf Boy Blanc-hard and A. S. Angelton, two local boys,-novices - at (he game, squirmed v-Iori'-lO;minutes before Blanchard flnally-^won ailh a too hold and leg lock. Assumed N»mrs Larkin. or Thornton, as the case . might bo, put up us e 0011 a match . ashe probably could against Biirte but was In no wny a match for the , experienced -west const middleweight! The writer believes Burke could have tossed the cx-gpvern- nient fleet worker at nny tune during the matin. Furthermore, re- "gardless o! the fact that Thornton or Larkin probably did the best he • -could, two appearances in the same town under different names creates suspicion. And If the writer recalls correctly Burke wrestled an opponent by the name of Thornton In a Tennessee town a week or so-ago.'The writer is not Inclined to'"open this sport page to boxers ., or .wrestlers appearing under assumed names. And In the.future It'wlil take some substantial proof of identity. Elliott "Threw*-- Sett Before'Elliott submerged for ths final fall in the ECinl-wmdup the local Wrestler was giving the Bald Eagle a good tussle. The Memphis • boy won the- first fall In ilx minutes with a body scissors and Elliott camo back to take the second '•• «1th a'body scissors nnd arm lock '• Jn'Six minutes. Bald Eagle dldnlt ) hesitate''to admit the second fail ' :»'hen Elliott applied the pressure. The final fall had gone about four . minutes when Elliott opened up with a:series of dives that was to prove his undoing. The local wrcsl- . ler apparently was trying to butt "., the Memphis matman. His butts or .'flyirijj tackles were more in the nature of a dive at some swimming pool, however, and even when Bald Eagle'failed to sidestep, Elliott hit him around the-shoe tops.'.And when he did sidestep Elliott hit the ; canvas almost head flrst.VStuniicd . by four or five .of these mistakes Elfott was easy picking for the. fin. al fall. The Bald Eagle gave Elliott, who' was' practically' helpless, a few neck wrings and tosseii him o'oi-ri, straddling him lor the fall. What appeared to be the smallest house since wrestling programs were opened here three weeks ago attended the third show last night. Town Gymnaunm 300 Feet Below Ground BRUSHING.

The batting: weakness extends to he catching department. Charley Berry hit -2&3 last year, but Ed Connolly, the youngster from Brooklyn, amassed an average of .075 and Howard Storie crashed the apple for a not very robust .118. Nineteen of the 29 men in camp here now are dyed-in-the-wool Red i Sox. Ten still have ihc possibility of that harrowing experience ahead of them. Of these ten, perhaps a half do?£n will find themselves by mid-June doing another season in the minor league*. « • Collins unquestionably has performed a wonderful job with Ihe material at hand. His ball team hit .262 lust year, but-he managed to beat out the Tigers- and White Sox, for sixth place. Given a team ate in other ways in the effort, to that would hit 15 percentage points higher, he would be sure to give trouble to teams In. the'first .division. With one .more .300 hitter, the Red Sox would have a chance. But with tr.e recruits at hand, Boston seems to be due for another second division year.
