At The Theat es
“Gang War* ’advertised as • 'part
talkie,” featuring Olive Borden and
Jack Pickford. an F B O special, is j
the stellar vehicle at the Princess
today. This is a tremendously Im

borate scale, revealing the life in
the big time gang world. Olive
Borden has never been seen in a

theme cf the piece is the love of a

bill. Dorothy Mackaill Is the star,
with three other notable players in
the cast—Ralph Forbes, Anna Q.1
Nilsson and Lowell Sherman. This*
Is described as a real old fashioned
melodrama in a modem setting.
This sort of play has lately become
very popular and this Is an espec
ially good one.

Terry Roberts Loses His Bout
To Georgian; Good Fight Card
Joe Singleton, Amateur Boxer, Goes
To Draw With Veteran
Ralph Hood.
Arthur Sides gave Shelby tire
best boxing program Saturday
night it can hope to see tor a long
time, and incidentally he uncov
ered a lithe, slashing young fellow
who gave the redoubtable Terry
Roberts all he was looking for. and
then some.
Roberts, a general favorite
throughout this section, lost the
decision in the 10-round main at
traction to Baxter Roper, of Col-1
umbus, Georgia. although It was
such a mlxup that the decision!
might have gone either way, or to'
no decision at all unless one had
been selected as the best wrestler.1
and Roper undoubtedly would have
wen then. j
A Slashing Fight.
The main bout, however, was
handicapped because the semi
final which preceded was far more
colorful than the average main
oout throughout this section. In
tne semi Big Joe Singleton. Shelby
high athlete, mixed It, roughly and
gladly, with Ralph Hood, veteran
Charlotte lighter, and at the end
of the six rounds Singleton’s husky
physique and nerve gave him a'
draw with the cagey ring experi
ence of Hood. The first half of the
slashing, toe-to-toe slugging un
doubtedly saw the lanky Shelby
boy with the ups, but In the final
rounds Hood seemed to have sited
Singleton up with the result that in
the final setto the Charlotte fighter
had 8tngleton In rather bad condi
tion when the gong sounded. As it
was the veteran fight critics about
the ringside saw enough In Single -
ton. who fought without pay to
hold his amateur athletic standing,
to realise that he has the proe
pecUT of a remarkable future. Had
Singleton possessed half the ring ex
perience of Hood the fight would
never have lasted the full six
rounds. Not more than once did
Big Joe use an uppercut and all
he used his left for was a jabbing
defense while he was fighting an
overhand game which Hood soon
learned *o cover up on. As It was a
few well timed upper cuts and a
little more work by the left might
have won the bout for the Shelby
lte. Nevertheless there Is no room
for complaint: the semi-final was
worth the entire price of the show.
What? Dynamite.
Sooner or later most of the fight
fans here shouts are going to get
the idea that this "Kayo” Foster,
from McAdenville. Is no other than
Joe Jemcs' Dynamite Dunn. In his
first fight here the long-limbed,
loose-jointed Foster stopped his
man In a hurry, and Saturday night
when J. D. McCullen, of the Ora
Mill, decided to mix it with Foster,
the bout ended In the third round
when Foster caught McCullen flush
on the chin, so flush that Mc
Cullen was still dreaming when the
referee raised up after counting
ten.
Logan "Babe” Carr, the pride of
the Cleveland Cloth village and a
local favorite, met just a bit too
much experience In hto bout with
Johnny Fisher, of Lowell. "Babe”
rushed and slugged with all of his
dare-devil nature, but Johnny just

they clinched they remained to-'

seemed to be a shade better, but
the decision of the judges met with
the approval of fans In awarding
the bout to Roper.
