Ralph (Tiger) Jones, the Yonkers, N. Y.. middleweight, will try to supply the answer tonight when he faces the 147-pound champion in a non-title 10-rounder in Madison Square Garden. The 8 p. m. (CST) bout will be telecast coast to const by CBS. Gavilan is a 2-1 favorite but the rugged 25-year-old Negro is good enough to make the kid, work for his money. Unbeaten in his last seven fights, Jones holds two wins over Danny (Ban Bang) Womber, who came up with the ring upset of the year May 2 when he defeated the overconfident Kid. Since that loss, Gavilan has scored decisions over Halo Scor- tichini and Ramon Fuentes. He wasn't any ball of fire in either bout. The Cuban Flash, now 27, generally doesn't like to go all out unless the big chips are on the line. He may consider Jones big enough and then there could be some fireworks. Unlike some of his critics, Oavllan doesn't think he's fading. He believes his added savvy and punching power makes up for the loss of some of his once-dazzling speed. The 154-pound Jones saw how Womber beat Gavilan by swarm- ng all over him. He plans to use j the same tactics against Gavilan, who will weigh about 152. This will be Gavilan's eighth 'Ignt this year. His record is 6-1 or 1953 and oyerall 93-13-4. Jones' record for the year is 6-1-1 and overall 30-8-3. Some Golf Girls Are Forgotten By HUGH FULI.EKTON JR PROVIDENCE, E. I. W—A few prominent feminine golfing natiu'K. which somehow had escaped ihoir usual amount of tUtt'iiUou dunnu Hie first few dnys, popped up ni>ain lodny as the 53rd U. S. Women's Amateur Golf .Championship sjol down to 32 players. In the early excitement over .such new stars as Mnrlene Stewart, Pat Lesser and Barbara Ro- inuck, the experts and galleryites alike seemed to forget about the 1951 champion Dorothy Klrby nmi such niRged contenders as Polly Riley and Mary Lena Fnulk. Possibly that Was because they haven't been playing frequently and the younger girls had more to win. " But as the girls went into the i fourth round today, with the lop[ sldod draw finally brought into bat- I ancc, the chances of this trio looked very good. Miss Riley, one of the few top- fllght stars who had to play right through from the first round, could show victories by margins of'/ and 5, B and 4, and 5 and 3. And the | two were against a pair of | very strong rivals, Edean nder- son and Pal Devnny. Miss Faulk, who compiled a fine winning record during the winter and spring, shot the best golf of the opening day—even par for 13 holes—in a 7 and 5 victory and followed it up yesterday with a 6 and 4 decision over Mary Sargent of Memphis, ft player of no little ability. And Miss Ktrby moved into the fourth round with an 8 and 7 decision over GlorU Arnutrcnf ef Alaineda. The three tournament • tested stars have one thing in common. besides lack of publicity. The combination of hot weather «nd hard work has kept them from pitying much this summer. Miss Kirby, who sells advertising for an Atlanta television utation. hadn't playsd seriously sine* the Western Women's Open in Jun« until she cam« here. Miss Hiley, * Fort Worth law offic« secretary, hadn't done any more, »nd Miss Baulk, who works In her father's auto agency In Thomasville, Oa., dropped out of the tournament picture after losing in the iwmUlnils of the British Women's Championship last spring.
