Both fighters started slluglnn gloves 'from the opening bell wltn FoivUtes, Apparently aroused by (he strength and socking ability ol tho •: heavier McDonald, punched harder than In any previous engagement here. Severn! times the Memphis lightweight appeared ready to slug it out with 'the Paragould boy but usually changed his ladles when his most punishing blows failed to hurt McDonald. Fowlkcs clearly outboxcd'McDonald but took 'a terrific body drubbing in Ihc clinches. .'The bout, was rough and furious all the way through with both ooys resorting to methods that kept Referee Danehower on the lun.

These youngsters threw cnu- ' tkm and skill aside to stand too to.toe, and slug Incessantly for the • full three rounds. They received n bis ovation when Referee Danehower declared the bout a draw. . Another pair of negroes, a Ions skinny, flat-faced boy and a short, dumpy brownsktn, gave the crowd plenty of laughs In another three rounder. Skinny started out like a house'afire but soon bogcn to back pedal and stayed on the bicycle the rest of the bout wllh Kid Brown slinging a looping overhand right that found Skinny's head with uncanny accuracy. Kid Brown won n popular verdict. Kid Young, midget son of Osceola's police chief, took his opponent from Marked Tree to the •cleaners In a three round fray. While Young's margin was not as great last night as the previous Monday night, he was easily front at the finish. in Where Are You, Girls? Women's Interest In the sport; pages Is likely to perk up shortly The reason Is Stepping Slelia Walsh, the 19-year-old Cleveland girl to whom no day is quite complete that doesn't see a new worW record in some sort of a sprint.

It's a very high-sounding handle, ir you ask us .iiifiybc even n little bit too lofty lor the cauliflower non-intclllgent- sla to handle. We asked the man who writes n occasional scientific article about these "Dolomites." He told us he though it referred to a sen area oil the coast of Africa where there were no winds. Another source was touglil and we were Informed that the "Dolomlles" were Ihose crystals they found hanging In eaves. The telephone operator said she though* the word means "the blues." As a last resort we conferred with N'oah's bevy of words. Mr. Webster tncw what ihe Dolomites were all right. They arc mountains In the Tyrol.
