Stan- lcs.3 io\inc' ar- that »le•• l:isi counter at i sceola as to Hie rospcct- Ive merits of Hie Luxora I i B li I-1 heavy nnd Jack Carr, lately of Parsgould. The de- [ ctslve end to a dispute that started several weeks ago was hiKh- ly satisfactory to the fans—es(>cc- lally nftcr Carr all but ruined ihe show by opening u]i with a series .of low blows—and if the writer hn:> ever witnessed an intentional foul I at least tliree of the four were Intentional. Referee Danehower ordered Cair back to his corner nftcr he Imcl louled McRac a fourth lima In :i neutral corner—apparently u deliberately placed blow—and llic Lnx- . ara battler sank to Ills knees. McRae's liand was raised as lie was helped to his feet—and then bedlam broke loose. The fans begun yelling for n fight and Carr and his seconds began :i whirl of protests with Carr sound- Ing high "threats" of taking a protest to the state commission, After McRae rested he agreed to go on with the ftght nnd CoiMiilssoncr Jeff Roland rather tlun disappoint the audience allowed the fight to proceed. Blit it was to last only n few seconds longer. The two big boys thoroughly aroused began to tear In with punishing blows. Curr landed another low clow but it fell on Mc- Rne's hip and did not appear to be Intentional. With startling suddenness, McRae caught Carr with :i terrific blow forcing him on lite ropes in a neutral corner. Wide open, Carr lolled on the ropes and McRac socked home a devastating right, and the flght was over .Referee Danehower tolled off the count but, It wiis teally not acces- sary as Carr was out and out to stay... The flght should never have proceeded after it was first stopped but the fans were satisfied at the finish. Carr should consider himself extremely fortunate that his purse was not held back and a long time suspension meted oat. for the Vac- tics he'employed in the ring last night. In the serntsrindUBfrKld .Mack- Jin, dusky BJythevllle lightweight, disposed of .K. O. Dummy, negro battler for the U. S. government fleet, in easy fashion. Macklin sported probably ' the tightest pair ol boxing trunks ever displayed in a flght ring but they didn't" seem to handicap his style. .Macklln took the lead from the start and floored K. O. for the count of nine In the second round Dummy jumped up still in a daze to tie saved by the bell from further punishment. He. answered the fbcll -for the third round but went down from a punch, to the mldsectlon for the count. He had to be carried to his corner, Roger Mabin, 100 pound negro. staged a whirlwind finish to wi:i over Jack Calary, another youth of color. The pair fought through two • rounds on even terms, but MnVjln I began to find the range with an i overhand right in Uic third romirt i lor a slight advantage aiu-1 nil but I upset Calary with the same v.eapon n In the fourth and final .-;•' 'a. | Kid Curtis and K.
