The Oshkosh man got the verdict
solely on cleverness. Both men were
aggressive, but few effective blows
were struck. Klaus opened a cut
over McGoorty's eye and Eddie split
Frank's lip with one smash. That was
the extent of the damage done.
McGoorty tried to keep his man at
long range and was superior at that
style of milling. Whenever they came
to close quarters Klaus had the edge.
Klaus had to be warned or holding

It will take a much longefight to

Third basemen in the city series
and the world's title clash are the
subject for today's lesson, and the
class must listen attentively to each
pearl of wisdom dropped regarding
the celebrated athletes.
