When Earl Conners of Tacoma
meets Joe llarrahan of Seattle to
morrow night at Steele's gymnas
ium, the bout will mark Conners'
attempt to regain his former title
of Northwestern featherweight
This crown was taken from
Conners by Harrahan October 22.
Shortly afterwards the little Se
attle boxer lost it to Muff Bron
son of Portland. If Earl can de
feat llarrahan, he will be in line
to tackle Bronson, who ls report
ed to be one of the toughest box
ers In this neck of the woods.
It was in the Harrahan battle
that Conners' eye was cut badly.
This has healed well and should
give the boy no further trouble.

a good list of bouts for his card.
