J FIGHTS LAST NIGHT ~ By Associated Press * PHILADELPHIA — Gil Turner, f VA; Philadelphia, knocked out arley Fusari, 147, Irvington, J. (11). By Associated Press LONDON, July 10.—Sugar Ray Robinson puts his world middleweight title on the line tonight against the hardest puncher ever developed in Britain, 23-year-old Randolph Turpin. The chances are so strong that Robinson will keep the crown that if you back the champion you have to risk four bucks to win one. If you like Turpin—most folks seem to feel he's a nice young lad being tossed to a hungry tiger— you can gets odds of 3 to 1. Although the odds make it look like a one-sided battle, the match has attracted the paying public like mad. Promoter Jack Solomons sold out the 18,000-seat indoor Earl's Court Arena within 24 hours after the signing of the contracts. The gross will run around $224,000, with Robinson getting about $84,000—the biggest purse ever paid a fighter here—and Turpin getting about $28,000. The fight, which includes tout- supporting bouts in addition to seven noice heavyweight scraps, will start about 2:30 p. m. (CST). Turpin has the physical equipment to pull an upset. He's eight years younger than Robinson. He is fast, strong as an ox, a natural middleweight without poundage worries and carries a knickout punch in both hands. But by world standards lie is woefully inexperienced. America's National Boxing Association last week listed him first among the "outstanding boxers" in the middle division, but didn't class him good enough to be considered a logical contender for Robinson's , title. Nobody was. By JOE REICHLEK Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT, July 10—Manager Casey Stengel of the New York Yankees denied today that any animosity existed between him and Joe DiMaggio. his slipping outfield star and berated those "who are trying to embarras Joe through me.'' "If I didn't like the fellow why would I pick him for the All-Star team and bring him here?" Sten- gek demanded. "The fans didn't pick him. I did. "Certain sharpshooters have been trying to knock DiMaggio down for years," Casey continued. "They wait until he siipps a little then—Bang—they give him the works. Now why should they do that to a great hall player and a great guy like Joe? "He's been a great siar for years and a great credit to the Yankees and baseball. Why should I, of all people, have anything against they guy. Why, he made me a great manager. Do you think I would have been successful without him in the lineup. They called me >a lousy manager in Brooklyn and Boston." Rumors of strife between Stengel and DiMaggio first began last summer when Casey dropped Joe out of the cleanup spot and attempted to convert the great cen- terfielder into a first baseman. These rumors were revived over the weekend when Stengel removed DiMag from the lineup in Saturday's game at Boston. A reporter went to see DiMaggio in the clubhouse and asked why ne was taken out of the lineup. "Go see the manager," Joe replied. "Maybe he'll tell you." Stengel explained he removed DiMag, along with regulars Phil Rizzuto and Gerry Coleman in jrder to "rest" them for Sunday's ;ame with the Red Sox. "We were behind 6-0 and I wanted to win the next one bad. I wanted the fellow (DiMag) along with the other two to be well rested for that one. I even pulled out Allie Reynolds early so I coull use him in relief, if I needed him, the next day." Unfortunately, DiMaggio did not know he had been yanked until after he had trotted out to the outfield. Casey had to dispatch one of his players to inform Joe he was through for the day. A Yankee official, asked whether there was any truth of the report that Stengel and DiMaggio weren't on speaking terms, replied: "Tinker and Evers, that great Chicago Cubs' double play combination didn't speak to each other for years, yet both were so great they were voted into the hall of fame. When Joe is up at the plate or running after a fly ball, he does not take time out to think of his relations with his manager." ROUNDUP NEW YORK—A conservative morning journal, denying a yarn that there's a rift between Joe DiMaggio and Yankee Manager Casey Stengel, points out that Joe has become something of a "loner" lately. ... he eats alone, seldom talks to his teammates or his manager and is inclined to return short, surly answers to reporters . . . we've heard the same thing elsewhere, and the scribes who used to be Joe's friends are now letting him alone . , . you can't exactly blame a guy for feeling sour when he's on the downgrade after a great career . . . and Joe, with a 261 batting average and frequent periods of enforced idleness, must realize he's near the end of the string . . . DiMaggio is a guy who made a bad start and then learned to accept fame gracefully. You couldn't find a more pleasant companion than Joe when he was at his peak ... if he'd learn the same graceful acceptance of the end of his playing career he could go right on as one of the great personalities in spoils . . . maybe it would be harder tn come by $100,000 a year, but ttvre isn't' anybody who could have better opportunities as an ex-ball player. V * * * Whaddya Want? In the same vein, l-'i-rd Corcoran tells this one about Ted Williams, whose relations with the press haven't always lieen the best . . . Ted came to hat in a recent game where a long hit was needed to put the Red Sox in front ... he was intentionally passed and Vern Stephens' followed with a double . . . Williams took off with the sound of the bat, raced all the around and slid under the throw to home for an LITTLE SPORT Guessing Goes On as to New Commissioner By Associated Press DETROIT. July 10.—Baseball's big mystery continues to be: Who will succeed A. B. Chandler as commissioner? There was much informal discussion of the job as baseball men met here for the All-Star game, but a big league owner who declined use of his name said neither the American nor National League meeting took up the problem. Chandler steps out July 15 following which the executive council will run the game. This is composed of Ford Frick, National League president; Will Harridge, American League president.; Tom Yawkey, president of the Boston Red Sox, and Warren Giles, president of the Cincinnati Reds. Although there have been no positive indications of sentiment yet, straws in the wind seem to indicate growing support for picking a baseball man rather than a national figure to head up the game. The names most frequently heard in this connection are Frick, Giles, and George Trautman, head of the minor leagues. American League owners might oppose Frick and Giles because of the old jealousy between the leagues. The public figures who have been at one time or another the object of speculation in connection with the $65,000 job include James Farley, former Pastmaster General and now chairman of the board of Coca Cola; Gen. Douglas MacArthur; J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Erie Cooke, Jr., head of the American Legion, and Frank Lausche, governor of Ohio. all-important run . . just as he crossed the plate in a cloud of dust, a Boston writer pointed dramatically from the press box and snouted: "See that bum. He doesn't hit in the clutch; Stephens does." TIME TO BUY LIQUOR IS NOW from the only Liquor Store in Mt. Vernon East Side Square - FREE DELIVERY. PHONE 100 or 708 Free Parking In Rear Major League Players Favor Reserve Clause By Associated Press DETROIT, July 10. — Major league ball players were formally on record today in favor of *the reserve clause, the legal gimmick that has been called everything from a "slavemaker" to "baseball's lifesaver." The 16 player representatives from each team in the majors, meeting here on. the eve of the All—Star game, voted last night in favor of a resolution giving club owners a vote of confidence in their retention of the reserve clause. Freddie Hutchinson of the Detroit Tigers and Ralph Kiner of the Pittsburgh Pirates said players felt the clause was "necessary to the 1 solidarity of baseball." Hutchinson represents the American League players and Kiner the Natoinal League. The clause, recently under attack by several players in the courts, binds a player to the club with which he first signs a contract. Egyptian Kennel Club to Stage 1st Puppy Show The B^gyptian Kennel Club is mailing out entry blanks for an all-Kreed puppy match to be held next Sunday, Mrs. Alice E.

Young Gil Turner Kayoes Fusari By Associated Press PHILADELPHIA, July 10 — Young Gil Turner converted a legion of doubters into a legion of fervent backers last night when he handed veteran Charley Fusari the first defeat of his career. The classy Philadelphia negro welterweight proved beyond doubt he's no flash - in - the - pan. He smashed Fusari in bloody submission with as rugged a two- fisted attack as 14,627 cheering Shibe Park patrons could have asked. They got their $60,262 worth. Turner spotted 26-year-old Fusari all the physical advantages —weight, height, reach —and additionally seven years of often much needed experience. But 20- year old Gil had the youthful pnuching strength and the ambitious heart of a comer.
