Come Over Wires
Indications now are that the
Sharkey-Stribling fight in Miami
Wednesday night will be broadcast
by radio, but if the radio does not
give the fight blow-by-blow a de
tailed report, similar to that given
by radio, will likely be secured here
by the Western Union. Plans now
are, if the fight is «ot broadcast, to
get the telegraph matinee in the
building occupied until recently by
the First National bank.
