"--Maybe he's Worried-- Ch Bang Away of Sirrah Crest might not know it, but Kennel club experts are already comparing him with the top Boxers of the past. The worried looking champion rests in his Madison Square Garden kennel this morning after winning the best-in-breed award of the Westminster Kennel Club show here last night. Tonight Bang Away, who won't be three years old until Sunday, will seek best-in-show championship. The Boxer is owned by Dr. and Mrs. R.C. Harris of Santa Ana, Calif."
