SHELBY. Mont.. June 14.
(By the Associated Press.) The
big brown bag In Tommy Gibbons'
training ring received more pun
Ishment this ; afternoon : than did
his four sparring partners. t
. The challenger dropped Kid
Rocco. the light heavyweight with
a left that landed squarely on the
chin, but It was virtually the only
time Gibbons put on full steam
during the afternoon session. -
Gibbons used his left almost ex
clusively this afternoon and he
was not pushed hard enough to
compel him to display any exten
sive footwork. ; Bud Gorman, the
Racine heavy, in the absence of
Tillie (Kid) Herman, who ; was
not feeling well; today, gave the
challenger his stiffest wprkout. j
Lakey Morrow, a 133-pounder
from - Spokane, - provided several
hundred spectators who witnessed !
the training session with consid
erable merriment, but made few
dents : In Gibbons' defense, i He
mixed freely with the challenger
but his blows apparently did not
bother Gibbons. ; i f
Plans were completed late to
day lor a trip to Glacier National
park tomorrow for the challenger
and his wife and their two little
boys, i They will return1 later In
the day. - .
