FDWSER DOES SOME
EB! FKLFIGHTIRE
Easily Gets Decision Over
Lefty Floyd, a Negro,
Juarez Arena.
After seven rounds of fast fight
ing, each being a repetition of the
pit-ceding oneFrank Fowser slipped
the knockout wallop to Lefty Floyd,
the negro lightweight, when the sev
enth round was about two minutes old
iunday afternoon at the Juarez arena.
Outpointed and outclassed from the
start, Floyd fought gamely, assimilat
ing' all the punishment which the
litavy punches of. the local welter
could give.
The boys mixed it fiercely for six
lounds, Fowser doing all the leading
and staggering the little negro several
times with straight lefts. The clever
footwork of Floyd saved him from
many a hard wallop, while the easy
boxing style of Fowser. coupled with
the extra 16 pounds la weight, handi
capped the negro to such an extent
that he was always on the defensive.
In the clinches Floyd used a light
left uppercut to advantage.
After a minute and a half of sparr
ing in the seventh, Floyd retreated to
the ropes before a fierce onslaught.
In a rally in a neutral corner, Fowser
swung a hard left to the Jaw, the
power behind the punch knocking
Kloyd against the ropes: he rebounded
onlv to receive a terrtflc right cross.
a replica of the blow which sent the
championship hopes of Joe Rivers
glimmering.
Floyd dropped flat, his neck and
.shoulders hanging over the level of
the platform, wrenching his back. Joe
Herrick, referee, grabbed bis arm and
pushed him back into the ring, as
Fowser was preparing for a farewell
wallop. Floyd was practically on his
feet, when Herrick stepped between
the boxers and raised Fowser's right
hand. Herrick used the best judgment
possible in stopping the bout, as the
game little negro was out for good.
Referee Ray Gambel handed down a
decision in the semi-winduD which was
not only unpopular with the principals.
but with the small crowd of tans wno
vi ltnessed the show. For eight rounds
Ppider Moffatt. the Oklahoma bantam,
jabbed and hooked Young: Gene, only
to receive a draw decision. The de
cision was probably based upon the
referee's way of thinking that one
glancing wallop such as Gene fre
quently landed offset the valuation
which was placed on the swift blows
o." Moftatt, who pounded Gene around
tut ris, for seven rounds, one being
a. draw. Moffatt was so incensed at
the decision that he attacked the ref
eree, as the latter was leaving the
ring. The fight was undoubtedly Mof
fatl's by a large margin, as the Okla
homa boy beat Gene up far worse than
the former bout, when he received the
! decision.
I A clever shift worked to per
fection by Bob York, sparring
partner at the Bristol camp.
j won the verdict for him against Wal
ter Gray, of San Antonio, after four
fast rounds. Herrick gave the verdict
to York, and was met with approval.
Kid Lee. of El Paso, and Kid Harri
son, of San Francisco, met in a six
round bout. The local veteran ex
hibited a great deal of foot work, and
alan worker! trooA at distance boxintr.
j Harrison did most of the forcing, with
his oppponent. Lee got in several
stinging wallops and the crowd con
ceded the advantage to him. Harrison
is a clever boxer, who has undoubtedly
bad experience with the top note hers.

he was crossed by Belote in a manner
which deprived him of all chance to

won a hard fought victory in the Na
tional Senior meet on Saturday.

the individual honors with first in the
100 yard and 200 yard dashes. Three

a scant margin.

Charles Corry. a high school boy,
furnished the greatest surprise, how
ever, by outrunning Kelly, the Olym
pic star, in the 220 yard hurdles. It
was a good distance for schoolboys,
for Drew still comes under that head,
and Stiles, of Culver, won the broad
jump from a man of such fame at
Piatt Adams.
Hannes Kolahmainen. the Finnish
long distance man, carried the colors
of the Irish-Americans to an easy vic
tory in the five mile run. He was

guage. For many years F. E. "Wright, the publisher of millions of dictionaries, em

his subordinates was: "Put spizzerinktum in it." Those about him know that this is
