From the caption that ran with the image: "For the first time in the history of Oakland boxing, probably settig a national precedent, two deaf mutes will fight here tomorrow night--not each other. HArold Siegel (extreme left), local clothier and fight filbert, sponsors both. They are Silent Escobar (second from left) and Leroy Pate, listening to Pete Tripodes, their trainer, who though not a mute speaks the sign language fluently. Pate fights Bill McGee, a light-heavy." Images depicts Tripodes "speaking" to Escobar and Pate while Siegel watches. From the Oakland Tribune Collection
