BOXERS DOING FINAL
TRAINING FOR BOUTS
OF EAGLES' SMOKER
Eddie Campl, the California
"flash," arrived In Tacoma Mon
day afternoon from California,
where he has been meeting a few
lightweights, and has started in
tensive training for his match
Thursday with Frankle Tucker.
Frankle is in Seattle, and is being
given last-minute tutoring by Dan
Salt, the veteran of the ring.
Campl and Tucker met once ie
fore in California, boxing to a
draw, and rlngslders never saw
such a slashing battle before. The
boys are evenly matched, and both
exceptionally clever. Either of
them would create a sensation in
the east, the critics assert.
When these two boxers step into
the Eagles' ring Thursday, fans
may expect one of the best bout n
ever seen In the Northwest.
Joe Gorman, who appears here
this week, defeated tough old
Frankle Sullivan at Seattle last
night. He put lt over Frankle In
every round, which ls a whole lot
more than most boxers in this part
of the country can do. Alex
Trambitas, a 16-year-old boy, gave
Chet Neff a great battle to a draw.
Joe Hill of Tacoma knocked out
