The Georgia oiti/.ens had their own idea of what kind of man •would hand down a der-ision against <he Kid. They Ju.-t didn't think it w:m a pnliti- tiling to do. Joe Jacobs was handling Me- Tiifuo.

Koth hoys pounded away lustily. With that last gong the boxers went to their corners. And .Referee ISrtle was in a corner himself. ISrtle saw It as an even tiffin. But how was he going to tell all those victory-hungry Georgians about,it" Finally Ertle gulped and loudly announced: The bout is a drew. McTlgue retains tRe title." Krtle decided there was a mistake all right. He had made it when he came clown to referee the bout In the first place. But suddenly the boos changed to chucrs— /Crtlu was holding Kid Stribling's hand in the air—the fans gave one loud cheer. t\v Ertle and the Kid, and went homo to rejoice. Mold. Mike McTigue and his disappointed manager left. .But about three hours later ICrtlu joined them, -fhey tnoved to a quiet spot and Krtle told them that the draw decision stood—Bold Mike still had his crown. Of course! this pleased them—but they wanted to know how come Strlblinji's hand went up in the rintf. And .Ertle explained that lie was shaking hands with Kid Striblin;,' in the rinK. And with another look at the door he said, "Just then some stranger comes alOK" and throws both our hands intu the air." Tommies Clash Brasscos Face N. Y.

This 'n' That JJy DtTlvK KAXl-AUSKAS (Sports Kdilor) Early photo Artist Ml<k«y Fightin' face of fighlin' man Actor Victor Jory says he v.-ould ike nothing better than to own n ood fighter. ISut the actor with the villainous cou ntenanco qualities his statement by saying that he would have to be sure the lighter would not worry him Into an early grave. Jory—who knows as much about lighting.and lighters -is the average boxing writer—says he once managed a good welterweight who nearly drove him crazy. It seems that every night Jory bad to put the kirl to bed and then stand guard all night to be sure i In; young fighter didn't bust nut and travel to the nearest bistro. .Many was the night that Jory had to haul his boxer back to the hotel ir. the wee small hours of rhe morning. And that wasn't especially fjood for Jory's other job of.' 1 working in :.i stock company. The actor says: "1 took far more punishment than he ever did in the ring." Currently Jory is starring in the Sunday radio show "Dangerously Yours" and he's scheduled to K° into rehearsal soon for the Broadway play "The Perfect Marriage." Jory says: "If you're once bit- (er. by the fl^'ht bug. you .never Lret it. out ol' your system. Yet that kifl in Minneapolis that T managed made me so disgusted with boxing —for a while—that I turned to race horses. I had a small string for several years. "M had some fairly KOOC! ones, but they proved oven more expensive than fighters. They almost ruined me financially, probably because I made the mistake of bet- tin^ on my own horses." Jory spent a short part of his early life in the ring and was a fair'.y good liuht hcavywcisrht, but he points out that he never got. beyond the preliminary stage. "They wouldn't, pay ir.c as much money for fighting as I could earn as a ham actor in stock companies. So I turned more and more to the stage. Later I turned simon pure as a member o£ the National Guard in California and won tho western states amateur light- heavyweight championship — most for fun."
