Mil key Walker Is credited with
scoring a victory on points over
Georgia Ward in the great dash of
Elizabeth welterfc whieh was singed
in the Newark armory last night. A
record crowd turned out to witness
the twelve-round battle of former
pals, and Ward although a 7 to 5
fa.vorito before the fight, received
considerable punishment from the
younger boxer.
The result of t'he fight does not
alteet Ward's standing as welter
champion of tho state, inasmuch as
a knockout would only make a
change. Walker started tho bout
strong and in the second round sent
his opponent to the canvas for a
count of nine. Both men weakened
after the sixth round but the last
round was fought in whirlwind
Ward weighed in at 147% and his
opponent weighed 14$%, just one
quarter pound less tho weight men

probably bo rcmatched with .Tack
