"Matinee Ladies," according to
Byron Haskins who directed the
production, designates a circle of
society ma'de'up of indolent, pleasure-mad
women, wives of wealthy

Jack Sharkey came down within
three pounds of his fighting
weight today under the combina
tion of a hot sun and a hard work
Tipping the scales at 199, as he
stripped fer action, Sharkey drop
ped four pounds in the next 45
minutes, and Johnny Buckley
called a halt after four rounds of
sparring and the equivalent of six
more in rope jumping, shadow
boxing and bag punching.
Sharkey is scheduled to weigh
192 pounds in the ring with Jack
Dempsey July 21. Losing- more
than that would weaken him.
Buckley and the fighter's two
trainers believe. The work will
be lighter from now on to ease
the husky sailor to the peak for
the greatest fight of his career.
Tamed by Buckley's "take it
easy. Jack." Sharkey gave his
sparring mates an easier afternoon
of it and for the first time in
three days Johnny Urban, the
Pittsburgh youngster, was able to
walk straight going out of the
ring. Sharkey boxed two rounds
with Urban, one with the Mohawk
Indian. Leo Cans, and the usual
light comedy round with the
clumsy Rocky Stone.
The hottest sun of the year per
suaded Sharkey to omit his usual
four miles of road work, in Cen
tral Park. The afternoon heat
brought an irritated scowl to
Sharkey's fighting face and cov
ered his bronzed shoulders with a
sheen of perspiration.
