feating Ralph Henderson lasit Sat

that failed' to last two full n^iunda.
In bjith fights Referee Bob O’Neil
had to call things to a bait and
award Joe a techniaal knocloout.
Fighting in the form of Max
Baer, Ji.e failed to let either of
his opponents land a solid blow,
and laughed each time his adver-
safry attempted to do any dlam-

lai'ael, who did a. fine job of Man

shout down from the riimg ait him
not to get exicited. Outside of
that, things moved al.flg smooth

ceived' any 3cars of battle.
So it’s hiats off to Joe, king of
