Terry Thomas had an easy- time
with Tim Hirsch in Grand Rapids,
Mich., putting the Benton Harbor
III man awav in eizht rounds. The
Chicago middleweight made a 'fine
impression by his aggressive tactics
and his manager, Jimmy Kilroy, is
besieged by offers of more battles
before the Grand Rapids club.
Thomas used his right to good ad
vantage throughout the bout the
final punch being a right cross that
sent Hirsh down for good! Kilroy
and Thomas plan a strenuous win
ter campaign in the west, with the
possibility of New York dates later.

Yesterday was a fine day for the
Boston Braves. Stallings. people
climbed but half a game on the Phils
and failed to advance on the Dodg

Johnston absolved Brown from all

of one game was blow enough, but
an injury to Bert Niehoff was the
lasting damage to the Morans.
