f BULL WOUNDS
! MATADOR AT ' BORDER FIGHT j Crowd Gets Thrills A-Pleniy as Seven Beasts Killed At Matamoros Approximately 4.000 citizen* of two republics comfortably filled the new Matamoros Bull Ring Thurs day afternoon to cheer the per formances of exponents of the na tions 1 pastime of Mexico. Amer icans celebrating the Fourth of July composed a large percent of the crowd. With three Xajay bulls and four from the Santo Domingo hacienda, the three matadors had ample op portunity to display their skill. A Conception of the chance that the fighters were taking was forceful ly brought to the eyes of the spec tators when Jose Salas "El Sirio”, in attempting to make the kill on the third bull, was gored high on his right thigh, the wound narrow ly missing a puncture of the ab domen. The fight continued with two remaining matadors in action. Fernando Lope* and Leopoldo Ra mos. Horse Knocked Down | A genuine thrill was furnished the spectators when the third bull, apparently having sunk to earth for the last time, leaped to his feet when the puntlllero appeared, and offered a few more minutes of k fighting. Probably one of the out I standing exhibition, especially for I those in the lower tiers of seats, i came with the fight waged by the » fifth bull, who seemed to have a k positive reluctance about staying in the arena. The best coaxing which matadors and banderilleros could offer had no great effect, a* the bull twice leaped the fence sur rounding the arena and made charging forays around the run way. Of great Interest to followers of the Southern Republic's national pastime was the appearance of a 1 grey-haired picador. Francisco Al \ varez ("Berrinches”). Alvarez has spent 30 years In bull rings and Is said to be the best picador in Mex ico In playing the sixth bull, his |g horse was viciously charged, knock “ ed down, and the picador thrown from the saddle. At that moment the bugle sounded the signal for the ring to be cleared and the scene prepared for the benderi I lien* Alvarez resumed his seat in the saddle, hurried to a position f in front of the stand of the referee. Alfonso Reyna, and made an ap peal for another play at the bull. I To tumultous cheering from the l spectators, special permission was granted to the veteran fighter by Referee Reyna. A human interest touch was in troduced during the afternoon with Chastened ‘Tiger Woman’ Is Free j » 1■— ■ Byes shining as she gazed again on a world she had not seen (or 12 years. Clara Phillips, once named in flaming headlines as the "tiger woman,” now mild and near middle age, is pic tured as she walked free from prison in Tehachapl, Calif. The woman who slew with a hammer a rival for her husband's love went to her mother's home in Mesa. Calif., to begin life anew. the appearance of the wife of Miguel Gutierrez, and children. Gutierrez was a well-known mata dor recently gored to death. Sliver coins were thrown into the a tna by spectators, while matadors and banderilleros gathered them in their capes and presented them to the widow. Ramos Most Popular Leopoldo Ramos, who came to Matamoros from bullfights in Tam pico. proved to be the more popular with the spectators. Popular ap plause determined that he was the choice of the spectators to make the final kill. Originally planned to open three weeks ago. the first fight in the new bullring was halted by rain. Thursday the fights were carrier on under sunny skies until a light shower drove many of those on the shady side to the top tier under a protecting roof, while Ramos was playing the last bull. It Is understood that a number of persons were booked by city police for throwing hats, bottles and oth er articles into the arena. It is against Mexican law to throw any article into the arena during the fight. Banderilleros for the fight were: Rafael Lopez. Roman Guzman. Manuel Gomez Blanco, Feliciano Villarreal, and Jesus Melendez. Picadores were Abraham Juarez. Francisco Olvera. Felipe San Vi cente, and Sabino Dominguez. The ••puntillero" was Antonio Jimenez. Public Sentiment Must Be Aroused, Governor Tells Bar HOUSTON. July 5. (&>—Pleas for law enforcement and for profes Kional consciousness designed to curb I activities of nondescript lawyers were before the Texas Bar Associa tion convention here Friday. Saying that crime already has cost tco much in Texas, Governor James V. Allred told the attorneys Thurs day that enforcement would be pos sible only when public sentiment L was aroused. Ife* Before the governor spoke. H C T Pipkin of Amarillo, president of the f bar association, said that his “appeal ' to the rank and file of the bar as \ sociation is that we shall, under the goad of professional consciousness. \ oreak the bonds ol lethargy and in difference and that with renewed I inspiration and determination we Shall set ourselves to the serious task of building up a great profes eional organization. Governor Allred, who recently us ed Texas Rangers to close gambling houses and saloons, said he consid ered it the constitutional duty of the chief executive to * cause the laws to be enforced." “Our self-respect, our need for preservation demand, in the immor tal words of James Stephen Hogg, that 'the law’ should be enforced',” ht said. “This can only be done when public sentiment is aroused and when they will demand it of local officers. After all. the state gov ernment is powerless finally to up hold the laws In any community un less the better element of our citi zenship will back it up." He expressed the opinion that the new state police organization, which he said would begin functioning next month, woul! prove an effective aid in the war against criminals. Regarding the legislature’s fail ure to enact laws recommended by the bar association. Pipkin sa.d the program merely had been delayed, not defeated. : TUST AMONTi US GIRLS ou can drive a bot| to college but uou cant make kirn THINK t $ HOME OWNED: ■ Get In the Swim! Yes!
