I One Ion if, perfect. throw from

spelled he difference between
victory and a tie game with the
possibility of def eat, to Wednesday
night's game, when .the apostles of
Henry Ford downed the American
Legion team $ to 5. ' ,
, In the last half of the fourth,
the Legion, four runs behind, had
picked up. three of the runs need
ed to tie, and with GabVielson on
second. 'Leo "Frisco" Edwards
smacked out a single that caromed
off the' fence 'in right field. Ga
brlelson -was founding third when
Mort got possession of the ball,
but a long hard throw to Kelly
caught Gabrlelson at the plate.
If -Gabrielson had ' stayed on
third, the result might have been
.different; but it looked like a good
change to. tie the score, as a per
fect throw was necessary.
It needs hardly be said that It
was an exclthig game throughout,

V., July 13. (AP) Paulino
Uzcudun. the bounding Basque of
the Pyrenees, knocked out Harry
Wills, New Orleans negro in the
fourth round of their 16 round
bout here tonight. !
' Wills had) a big advantage in
weight, scaling 214 H to 195 for
the Basque woodchopper.
Wills was ; warned . aaainst hit
ting on the; break J in the first
round. The giant negro was tying
up his opponent at close quarters
and landing short choppy : hooks j
to head and body. ; The referen i
had trouble separating the fight
ers from a clinch, in the .second
round, following which Paulino
curled his left to the negro's ear.
They slugged bead to head for a
few seconds, and Paulino landed
an overhand right to Wills' head
as the bell rang.
In the third round Wills clubbed
Paulino in the ribs with his right.
Wills shot both hands to the head
after taking a snappy left hand.
The crowd yelled for action. Wills
pecked away with short hooks but
they seemed to hare little behind
Wills went down for the count
6f nine in the fourth, staggered
to his feet and went down again
to be, counted out. .. ,
-The finishing blows were
crushing right handers.
The final round began with a
continuation of ' the desultory

leaped In and landed a right hand

arose- after taking the count of

mauling came to a ; dramatic cli

Wills as if he had been hit by the
woodchopper's axe. .
It was the first time Wills had
taken the full count of ten since
he was stopped a dozen years ago
by Sam Langford, the famous Bos
ton "tar baby." To the assembled
experts it seemed to mark a defi

career of the negro whose decline
began last October in the same
ring when he lost, on a foul to
Jack Sharkey. ;

Larry boxed swiftly, shooting tell
