L—(AP)—A shifty ne gro warrior named Billy Jones from Philadelphia, a counterpart of Jack Johnson, minus the gold brldgework, ranked today as a major challenger to win the vacated light heavyweight championship, as a result of admin istering a pne-sided beatin£'to Larry Johnson, Chicr.go negro la the Chi cago stadium Wednesday night. They met in one of the two second round battles of ten rounds each in the tournament being conducted by the National Boxing Association. Jones, one of the best light Ipeavy i weights in the east, completely out- L>oxed Johnson and showed contempt for the Chicago negro’s vaunted right hand smash. He had right pye swollen and shut in the sixth round and at time toyed with him. He scored heavily in Infighting, drop ping Johnson with a left hook to the body for a count of eight in the sixth round. Jones ranks as the favorite because of his achievement in defeating Roeenbloom in a match over the light heavyweight limit, and failing there after to get a match with the cham pion at the 175 pound nutch.

During the winter months baseball has almost been forgotten ex cept for a few hopefuls who have been seeking away out of the present dcilmma for the ball chib here. No one knows just what will happen to the Gamecocks, or the Piedmont circuit. thlß season. Whether or not the club and league will operate in 1932 remaips to be seen. A meeting of the directors of the league has been called for January 15th in Dur ham and at that meeting it will be up to Judge W. G. Bramham, president of the Cigarette loop to keep his cir cuit moving along for another year. Unless this happens the judge may find himself in an embarrassing posi tion. He has been elected as chair man of the governing board of the minor leagues, end unless the Pied mont survives the depression, then he will find himself without affilia tion with a minor league club. This probably would ceuse htpi to give up his executive post, unless he was able to secure appointment as the head of some other minor league organiza tion. Judge £r&mh&ni was instrumental in securing the backing of the Nash ville club to keep the Asheville club of the Piedmont league above water and It is highly probable that he will begin negotiations with other clubs in an effort to secure backing for some of the other rapidly einking members of the circuit. Win ston-Salem High , Point, and Hen derson. are undonbtedly weaker than any of the other of the Cigarette loop members, and iffthey can secure the proper backing, It is probable that the old Piedmont will go through another season. Henderson is still holding on to the services o<Tth« pick of their team last season and hoping for the best In the way of securing backing for the Gamecocks. Officials of the club here today are unable to make any defi nite statement regarding baseball for 1932, but most of them are hope ful. expressing the belief that back ing from some major league organi zation may be secured. Pinal efforts to keep the league to gether are expected at the Durham meeting on the 15th and until that time nothing definite regarding the Gamecocks or the Piedmont can be announced.
