The only scheduled fizhj. of the • evening brought together Jack Benny, Oseeola flyweight and Kid .Kelly of Menphia, Kelly started out like the proverbial whirlwind but faded away bndly after the start .and .failed to answer the bell for 'the sixth round. "^ Benny had the fight his way af- •t«r -'the opening minute 1 of the first rVunH but failed to -put Kelly out ilUiough he.had several opportunities! .A,clip on the Jaw in the fourth: round sent Kelly down and : out but'the bell saved him and his : .second-in some manner got him , hi, shape'to answer the opening {bogi la.the fifth round. He was on the floor and out when the bell again saved him at the end of the fifth stanza and - despite the frantic efforts of his second Kelly, could not come up for the sixth. '• Kelly fought with his back almost to Benny and swung a backhand left frequently. He couldn't cos* : .with the Oseeola bittler'S' southpaw and clung like a bear in the pinches. The red head Mem- phlan proved game, staying with Benny alter he was all but out In the fourth. Tommy Fowlkes. the one time pride of Memphis, gave Buford Denton, Luxora lightweight a boxing course In four rounds and, Denton thoroughly winded failed to answer the bell for the fifth round. Denton substituted for Mandell at the last minute. Fowlkes made little effort to deal out punishment, being content to make Denton miss, and kept his right hand "tied" to his side while pummeling the Luxora youth with Football Flash Thvills Crowds In Fast Spvint i fJEW YORK-There was drama and color In a jport event In oM New York town the other night— nevent that packed almsot as many thrills at the Dempsey-Firx> spectacle, although (if an entire- y different nature.

Robertson's Perfect Victory Over Tigers Was Great Feat EDITOR'S NOTE: Thta b the •econd of a seriu of II article* b.r Billy Ev»ns, recalling great deeds be IUM wllnccMd on thr diamond. He calls Robertson's (UK the most •kUIMlly pitched one. | By BILLY EVANS I have 'umpired in, perhaps, a dozen no-hit games covering my career. While a uo-hlt game Is u secret ambition of. every major league pitcher, it Is my observation that such contests, are-not. rieces,-. sarlly -master 'feats. I have .worked no-hit games In which "the pitcher recording the feat showed just ordinary stuff, but .*a». favored by the oreaks. I have!often seen the opposing pitcher In such a g»mt demonstrate far more ability, only to be beaten. ' ';' , Fate plays » certain part In ev^ ery no-hit game. Fate can frown as well, as smile, for I have seen many a pitcher robbed, of a no-hit record "with two men down In the ninth; only to have a "ftuky" hit go safe. Yet, there is one no-hit game that is indelibly written .on my memory. It was a superb bit of pitching against one of the hardest hitting teams In the annals of baseball. Detroit was the victim, a recruit pitcher of the White Sox, and Charley Robertson, then just turned the trick, It was In the spring of 1933. Robrtson was comparatively unknown; he Detroit club was regarded as a pennant possibility. There cam: o the majors with Robertson umor that he "doctored" the ball < his left. In a three round affair, Kid Kramen, 85 pounder, and 'Young Young, another 85 pounder, toiled to' a draw that gave the crowd plenty of thrills. These youngsters *ell known to Oseeola ring worms fought from the opening gong staging a real exhibition. The Kramer youth displayed the fane lest footwork of the two but could n't manipulate his mittens as wel as his adversary. Young, who threw his bloirs monchalantly but with frequent effect. .:A pair of dusky 100 pounders kid Brown, who rumors declaret did his training in the chief's coa bin, and Kid Black, who wortec out in a cotton field, slammed and danced their way to a draw verdict. BUd Brown threw everything but the coal scuttle at Kid Black but the lanky youth was always just out of reach with plenty of respect for the swing that his opponent' always let go from somewhere to the vicinity of his right heel after a running start. Mr. Greene o! BlylherUle refer*ed. In the first four innings Detroit >luggers hit a half dozen balls hard tut always directly at some fielder. The Tigers were peeved. Unable to ;et the ball safe, they began to ook for an alibi. The contention was raised that Robertson was "do- Ing something funny" to the ball, "'rom the fourth Inning on the Tigers paid far more attention to :aklng Issue with the legality ol Robertson's pitching than trying to hit the .ball, ine White Sox re- :rult riierely smiled, tossing the ball to the umpire for Inspection every time the Detroit batters complained. ..-•_.' . . ; • • .•Realizing the',value of psychology and know-ing the Detroit club was . paying close attention to' his every, action,--Robertson decided to pl&y.on, th«lr' emotions. : ' Of ten,-before, delivering the ball, he would carefully .scan .the cover. Occasionally he wptUd hold the one.hand and pass the/other.'hand bver>tte cover, as if-, testing Its .weight. lie did any number of .other fool-things'further to e'x- clte the curiosity- of the Tigers. •: How well he-succeeded In his. efforts shown by the box score of that game. Detroit was blanked without a hit or run, not a man reaching first- base. The Tigers didn't hit. a ball hard after the fifth inning. That was a great exhibition of pitching, principally because U w»j a no-hit, no-iun game in which not a batUr reached first. However, the remarkable part of that game was the fact that Robertson's pitch- Ing Improved the more the Detroit club sought to harass htm. DID YOU KNOW THAT-.-.,:'.

Next appeared Wildermuth, the fastest man in eastern Intercollegiate circles. As in all dramatic spectacles, the leading character appeared last. When Elder :rotted Into view the scene resembled greatly the entrance into the tia of a world's champion fighter. There were a few preliminary starts, then the athletes doffed their oversuits. At last came "Get Set!"Though It seemed like an age, Ihe (rigger finally was pulled, the revolver chamber turnr-rl— but there was no sharp report. Five athletes flashed' away, pnlliiiK up gradually several yards down the track.

The Cardwell girls, champions of Dunklln county, defeated the girls from Arbyrd by a score of 37 to 6. Tlie CardweU "Indian" boys won over the cagers from Arbyrd, 30 to 11. This is the fifth consecutive game that the CardweU girls have won; while the boys have won four and lost two. The two uarnes were refereed by Mr. Pierce, Cochrum school principal.

The bel- owlng, we understand, hss been terrific, and natives along the New York Central right-of-way toward the east, have gathered in crowds :o Inspect the stock wherever Ihe trains have ben shunted onto the sidings. Since pachyderms ordinarily grunt and only bellow when hungry, your correspondent's attention was aroused and he sought the cause of this strange phenomenon. The answer is that Chicago, which will .stand for Big Bill Thompson, Al Capone, and almost any kind of gang you could think of, has seen the light at last and announced the indefinite suspension of wrestling. The high ath- ^etlc commissioners of the state of lllnois, finding that there are sev- •ral sets of wrestling champions here and there doing tine business with one-night stands, tried to brins hese various champions together Boy! Long trains of stock cars have petllnf wt of Chicago for the to see who would become champion of champions. Then, the /Exodus Perhaps this great honor was toe much for the modest wrestlers. They didn't want to be champion among champions. Mr. Q«s gen. nenberg deemed that, he should be exempt from participating in an elimination rounds. D'.ck shika who can speak 12 languages, coul not hear the commission's rcques that he wrestle with Mr. Sonnen berg. Tho commission decided was being given a touch of tl; merry old "bold" and bade th pachyderms De on their way. Thus the exodus. Th« wmtllng situation remains a tqngled skein. Mr. Cms Sonneii- berg remains the champion of Dan Koloff and a couple of states, and Mr. Shlkat the champion of Penn- 'Ivanla, New York and a couple of ;tups he has met here and (here. The stock trains wend eastward to- ard New York, where they will be nloaded at Jack Curley'a pachy- erm farm and other way points. Ir, Curley hss built several new los on his Long Island ranch, we ndersland, and many of the bi? cllows have been consigned to that joint. Billy Sandow will take Care f a few of them back in Chicago, where there may be one or two jootleg matches now and again. • " • • The Masked Maml Part of the eastern consignments will be handled by Ed White, who used to run the wrestling racket around Chicago.
