Two Hundred Fight Fans SeeCampus Boxing Titles D


No Knockouts
In First Meet

Held Since


Only Knockdown Scored
By Dexter Rosen Over
Featherweight Foe
Consineau Is Winner
Pedigo-DeBonis Fight Is
Fastest On Card; One
Bout Is Defaulted
Fighting before an enthusiastic
crowd of more than 200 students and
townspeople, 11 young boxers were
crowned campus champions last night
in the all-campus boxing show held
in the main gymnasium of the Intra-
mural Building. It was the fist such
meet staged since 1932.
There was only one knock down
during the fights, Dexter Rosen, '39,
flooring Dick Perry, '39, in the third
round of their featherweight battle
but losing the decision to the faster
Perry. The latter took the first two
rounds but weakened considerably in
the third and took considerable pun-
ishment before the end of the fight.
Bouts were held in both the novice
and open divisions, the entrants in
the former being less experienced
than those in the open. Coach John
Johnstone refereed the fights with
Ray Fisher and Earl Riskey acting
as judges.
Too Experienced
The two feature fights of the card
were the Cousineau-Schwartz and
Pedigo-DeBonis battles. Cousineau,
'38, won the open middleweight
championship by outpointing his op-
ponent with a furious third round.
Schwartz, '38, opened fast and was
the aggressor throughout the open-
ing round. In the second Cousineau
moved in and took a slight edge and
when Schwartz showed plainly that
he was fatigued in the last stanza the
experienced Golden Gloves battler
sent over a number of hard rights
and lefts to insure a victory.
Livio De Bonis, '39, proved too good
on the in fighting for Jack Pedigo, '38,
in the open lightweight division and
in the fastest fight of the evening
earned the decision. De Bonis jar-
red Pedigo at the opening of the sec-
ond round when he left his corner in
a hurry and sank a right into Pedigo's
body while the latter was still in his
corner. The bout was hard fought
all the way.
Marks Downs Whitmore
Glen Whitmore, '36E, lost the
novice lightweight title to Mack
Marks, '39, in the first bout on the
card. Marks piled up his advantage
with a long hard left hand punch
that found its mark repeatedly.
Dick Siewers, '39, defeated Dick
Weldemeyers, '39, for the flyweight
crown when he finished fast in the
third round after losing the second
due to his opponent's hard body
blows. Van Wolf, '39, took the de-
cision from Hugh McCormick, '39, in
the open featherweight fight in what
was probably the slowest bout on the
card. ,
In the most objected to decision of
the evening Mike Bowler, Grad., was
given the edge over Elmer Service,
'37, in an open bantamweight fight
while Howard Friedman, '39, beat
James Richardson, '39, for the novice
welterweight title. In the open fight
of that division Bob Hutchins, '37,
beat Ben Leopold, '39. Art Downing,
'38, took the light heavy crown by
defeating Phillip Finkelstein, '38. Jim
Harper, '39E, won on default from
Norman Scheir, '39, in a scheduled
novice middleweight bout.

is enormous

In city after city, statistics prove that when highway lighting is improved, accidents de-
crease enormously. And experts have estima',ed that we probably spend close to a billion
dollars a year for accidents that could have been prevented with better seeing conditions.
Suppose you drive an automobile for fifty miles on a bright, sunny day over a straight
piece of road. At the end of the ride you notice no particular exhaustion. Then take the
same automobile, the same road, and make the same drive
at night - in a fog. After fifty miles of this you know
you have been doing some work. But the only difference
has been the lighting. You have gripped that wheel,
tensed your muscles, strained your whole body, not doing
any particular work, but using up a terrific amount of

Many people suffer from nervous heada ches, extreme fatigue and digestive disturbances
due primarily to eyestrain.
You, yourself, probably know of some children in your school who lagged in their
studies and had to repeat the work of a whole grade because of faulty seeing. Science now
tells us that the number of children who do this is very
large. We also know from actual tests made in classrooms
that when good lighting replaces inadequate light and'.0
improper lighting, the rate of failures decreases a great
deal. In fact, the cost of improved lighting is very much
less than the cost of having a school boy or girl repeat a
A great deal of valuable time is lost in big factories and offices because people working in
those places don't see well, or because they don't have enough light. Often valuable goods
and manufactured products are spoiled when they are made in poor light. And often, too,
the workers in factories and offices lose their jobs because they work in poor light and can't
see what they are doing as well as they should. Good lighting, and a yearly eye examination,
will preserve precious eyesight.

you get adequate light in your home. Telephone The Detroit Edison Company and ask us
