Clever boxing featured the preliminaries of the University boxing tournament yesterday afternoon in the Hemenway Gymnasium. Only two of the eight matches were won by knockouts, and both were technical knockouts.

The best bout of the afternoon was in the 147-pound class between G. N. Burns '29 and R. W. Lewis 2L. The men were forced to go an extra round before the judges could come to a decision. Burns was finally awarded the decision. This bout was marked by excellent boxing and exceptionally good foot-work.

The only bout in the heavyweight class was between E. H. Bradford Jr. '26 and C. L. Gilmer 3L., who was runner-up in the 175-pound class last year.

Lewis 2L at the end of two rounds.
