A chorus of 1500 enraged voices, raised in a discordant unison, greeted the announcement of a draw decision handed down by Referee Ray Smith at the conclusion of eight rounds of legal assault between Roxie Allen and Emory Cabana at Twelfth and Federal streets last night. The occasion was the star bout of the Camden City A. C. boxing show.

Joe Spearing, of East Camden, who meets Joey Michaels, Riverside slugger in the eight-round semi-final to the Roxie Allen-Emory Cabana bout at Public Service Park on Friday night, is rapidly fighting his way into the windup class.
Joe Spearing, star Camden lightweight who has been showing in Philadelphia a great deal lately, is anxious to fight in Camden again, and desires shots at Roxie Allen or any other leading 135-pounder hereabouts.
