This kid is a professional and recently fought the world champion one of the hardest battles of his career. You never can tell how far these kids will go, and Ortega is a shining example of one who started in Golden Gloves com-petitifm and attained world prominence in his chosen profession. “Send Redus is * another who gave his life for his country and will always be remembered as one who fought courageously in the Golden Gloves. Rex Daniels nuide a comeback and won the wdterweight title again and Boy Belk from the little town of Kress drew praise because of bis punching ability. Roy Priolo eame back and won the heavyweight championship although still just a kid in years.

It took a good man to stand up with Robert, the Shamrock all-state football player. That boy had the spirit that makes champions.

The examinations close at 4 o’clock. Tournament officials have advised all district directors and contestants from out of Amarillo to come in early. Each boxer will be required to weigh within a pound of the weight at which he is qualified to box. Some of the name boxers of past tournaments have been forced to take off an extra pound or two.
