Joe "Punchy" Cummings, third
seeded middle weight in the State
of Texas, lost* a close decision in
the state Golden Gloves quarter
finals at Will Rogers Memorial
Coliseum last Wednesday night to
Herbert May, state champion of
Cummings, who lost his first de-
cision here in forty bouts,' came
out fast in the first round and with
left jabs and rights to ttye mid-
section, out-pointed the Houston
boy decisively. Then with the bell
of the second, Punchy, who is a
defensive wizard, changed tactics.
He resorted to close-in fighting
and seemed to take this round al-

Tarleton netters are; working
out every afternoon that; the /wea-
ther permits in preparation for
competition with other schools in
this area. They are greatly hamp-
ered by the condition ,of the two
nets on the local court, but are
practicing hard to be in shape
for their first match. ,
Orchids from the Sports Staff
of the J-Tac this week go to Red
Johnson and Charles Gafford who
have kept the Tarleton Boxers in
tip vtop shape. Red Johnson is the
one and only trainer in the club
and so far has been to every Tarle-
ton bout helping the fighters in
and out of the ring. Charles Gaf-
ford is-the finance officer of the
American Legion *Post and sees
that the boys are fed and takes
care of transportation problems.

Bill Hicks, outstanding football
player for the Tarleton Plowboys,
is fast becoming one of the top
cagers. Hicks is always at the
right place at the right time and

game which will probably decide
