Odds On Robinson To
Beat Belloise Waver
NEW YORK, Aug. 22. P
Welterweight champion Ray Rob
inson was figured to step into
the Yankee Stadium ring a 2-1
favorite to beat Steve Belloise
when they clash Wednesday
night in a non-title 10-rounder.
But that was when the two
started training. Now the bet
ting gentry isn't so sure, and it
wouldn't surprise many experts
if Robinson was no more than
3-2 or 7-5 at ringtime.
Robinson is far from confi-
, dent, after being knocked down
in a sparring session.

Shed A Tear For Brooklyn, That
Bailiwick Of Eternal Sorrow
By ED CREAGH
NEW YORK, Aug. 20. UP) Poor old Brooklyn. Nobody loves
Except, of course, her 2,910,000 sons and daughters.
And sometimes you can't help wondering about them.
Does that chest-thumping local pride mean that they really
love Brooklyn? Or are they merely going through the motions
of cherishing a lost cause?
Everybody who doesn't live In
Brooklyn laughs at the old girl.
And nobody knows why. It's one
of those curious facts of life say
"Brooklyn" out loud and people
This, by darn, is iiot fair.
Brooklyn is not a funny place.

You can say many nice things
about Brooklyn. It's New York's
boomingest borough, population
wise. It s bigger (honest, it is)
than Philadelphia, Los Angeles

Brooklyn is still a sad place.

in Brooklyn. You can get a bath
tub, a vitamin pill, a wig or an
antique pool table straight from
the factory. You also can get

them with you. They're warm
hearted, witty, -inconquerable,
sentimental in the good sense
of the word and kind to stray
animals, including visiting New
But Brooklyn is still a
What I think I'm trying to say
is that Brooklyn gives 1U citizens
too hard a lime. It gives them
so much grief that they have to
unload it on each other.
