Herriman Saturday

Monday, April 20 1908 -- The idea that sailors from the Great White Fleet would be all that interested in watching a bunch of amateur boxing matches on their precious shore leave doesn't add up to me. Seems like one thing you'd have no shortage of on a long cruise is amateur fighting, right?

Well, anyway, Herriman is covering the exhibition matches put on by boxing legend Jim Jeffries for the jack tars on leave.
