Two lady bonecrushers will head the card at tonight’s Armory program: Juanita Coffman and Helen Hild.  The winner of the one-hour time limit, one-fall bout is scheduled to meet Mildred Burke, who is billed as “World’s Woman Champion,” at a later date.

Sponsored jointly by the American Legion and the Florida State Guard, the program will also include a semi-final between Lou Laird and Ali Pasha (sometimes known as the Terrible Turk), an opening bout between W. T. Hill and Swede Olson, a four-round boxing match and 10 pairs of nylons to be given away.
