Barney Ross Loses
Battle With Cancer;
Was Boxing Champ

BARNEY ROSS

Barney Ross, a former welter-
weight champion, one of the most
sensational figures in the boxing
world for a number of years, died
of throat cancer Wednsday at the
age of 57.
He had won battles against nar-
cotics, was a U.S. Marine hero
and had participated in many
philanthropic causes.
He had won and lost champion-
ships and he had become a legen-
dary figure in boxing.
* * *
A week before Ross' death, Jesse
Silver, JTA sports columnist wrote:
"Benefits held recently in New
York and Chicago for Barney Ross
have been so successful that Ross'
family have asked that no more
be considered. Other cities were
eager to hold similar benefits for
the former champion who has
cancer of the throat.

"The money, $32,000, will be
used to defray his medical ex-
penses. Ross is under treatment
at the Veteran's Administration
Research Hospital in Chicago.

"In New York, a boxing show
was held at Sunnyside Gardens
which was attended by many for-
mer boxing champions. Ross was
unable to attend, but talked to
the crowd by telephone over a
loundspeaker. In Chicago, films of
Ross' great fights were shown
at a Loop theater.
'The family now feels that all
of Barney's needs have been met
and that his friends have contrib-
uted enough,' said a brother, Ben
Rasof of Chicago. 'We are dis-
turbed by reports that other ben-
efits are being planned. If good-
hearted people want to donate
money, it should go to a cancer
fund or some other worthy cause."'
