M, 1947 DREW PEARSON rx^ ON °lhe WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Admirals Are Like Women—They Change Their Minds; The Navy's Favorite Story On A Weil-Known Columnist; Senator Barkley's Popular New Moustache AViiwltingtcm—If Congress really wants to cut tho budget, the boys on Capitol Hill might scrutinize certain naval operations going on almost under their noses in Southern Maryland. Directly south of Washington near Solomon's Island, Mil., the Navy operated an important wartime ordnance development center. About 39,000 men were stationed there during th> war and some of the Navy's most important guns were tested out near Solomon's IsUmd. Just a. half mile on the other side of Solomon's, the Navy also operated another important establishment—a mine test base.

Ex-Congressman Charlie Dewey of Chicago was attending a social function the other day and accidentally stepped on somebody's instep.

Vigeant-Falco Fight Draw At Armory By TOM KGAN Referee Jiggers McCarthy of Now Haven probably surprised most of the paying customers when he raised the hands of both Frankle Vijjeant, 147, Thomaston. and Tony Falco, M<1, Mlddlctown, after ten rounds of slam bang fighting at the Watcrbury armorj' la-" 51 night. The crowd was sharply divided into two camps, each of which thought their favorite had won, received the decision in silence. One ringsidcr may have hit the nail on the head when he remarked, "Jiggers look the easy way out." Your observer thought Vigcant had a alight edge. He landed by far the greater number of punches, albeit many of them obviously lacked steam. On the other hand he also missed a greater number of times, Falco. despite the fact that he did most of the catching, seemed to be in better con3ition for most of the fight, a fact which may have influenced McCarthy's decision. Vigeant's appearance wasn't helped any by a profusely biecd- ing nose. This observer thought, as did many others at ringside, that McCarthy awarded the ninth to Vig- oanT because of a low punch by Falco. After Tony landed one which was obviously under the belt Jiggers suspended action for several seconds and talked with Vigcant before permitting the round to continue. During the remainder of the round Falco made his best srrow- ing of the evening scoring heavily in infighting. Your observer thought Falco had a very slight edge in the tenth. However up to the eighth Vigcant was well out in front. Billy Brown, 157, Manchester, gave Kenny James, 104, Watcr- bury. a boxing lesson in another ten rounder on the card. There was no question about Brown deserving the nod in this one, although James ended the bout in remarkably fine shape considering nil the catching he had done for ten rounds. A four rounder between Bobby Holt, 100, Danbury, and Al Donofrio, H5. Wnlcrbury was obviously no contest. Holt, was far too strong and experienced for the Waler- bury lad, nnd he dealt out terrific punishment at close quarters. Donofrio's efforts to connect with n round house haymaker had most of the customers in hilarious up- ronr. Howovcr, by the time he finished winding up to let one go. Holt was usually somewhere in I another county. ' Lou Jackson, 139, New Haven, scored a fifth 7-ound TKO over Johnny. Holmes, 136, New York, in a scheduled six round opener.
