Tom Flake-an uncrowned cham-
A sophomore on this campus, Tom
holds the unique distinction of hav-
ing won a Golden Gloves title with-
out stepping into the ring.
A month ago he entered this year's
Golden Gloves tournament in Jack-
son, after having won the Ann Arbor
novice 175-pound title last year.
Shortly before his first two sched-
uled fights his adversaries contracted
sudden cases of chilblains and house-
maid's knee, respectively; and on the
night of the finals the examining
physician refused to permit his op-
ponent to fight. Thus Tommy Flake,
untouched by human hands, was
crowned light-heavyweight Golden
Gloves champion of Jackson,
Tom Was Worried.
By the time he got to Grand Rapids
to compete in the statet.tournament,
Tom was actually worried lest he
be soft through lack of practice, un-
able to last three fast rounds. Hence
he felt cheered no end when he de-
cisioned his first man without draw-
ing a deep breath.
In the semi-finals the next night
they matched him against a very
rough, bull-like Mexican lad named
Tores, who was the prohibitive fa-
vorite to take the 175-pound title.
And when Torres got Tommy against
the ropes early in the initial stanza
his stock went even higher with the
fans. In fact he remained the peo-
ple's choice until that precise mo-

ment toward the end of the round
when Flake drilled a left hook smack
onto his button. At the count of nine
Torres the Bull came up from smell-
ing the flowers long enough for Tom-
my to dynamite him with one more
left smash and down he went for
keeps. It took his handlers ten full
minutes to recall him to this world.

fAnd then, having stunned the spec-
tators with his one-round homicide

again that night, this time for the
The first two rounds he took in

he outclass his opponent. But then,
with only two short minutes sep-
arating him and official recognition
t as the best amateur light-heavy-
weight in the state of Michigan, he
walked square into a right hand: shot
that dumped him on the canvas. He
took a full nine count to rest up-
no need to get overanxious with two
out of three rounds already salted
away. And then he roared back into
his foe so savagely that he all but
won that round too, despite the

mistake in three bouts was to walk
into one right hand punch, returned
quietly to Ann Arbor-a champion in
all but name.
