FullmerRingReign Smashed by Tiger By BOB MYERS ' Associated Press Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The long reign of Gene Fullmer as king of the World Boxing Association middleweight division was < over today, terminated by a mauler and brawler much in the san ; mold as the Utah strong boy. , The new ruler is Dick Tiger of i Nigeria, th e British Empire ! champion of the 160-pounders, i who won the title by unanimous : decision Tuesday night in 15 ( rough bruising rounds before a i crowd of 11,600 in Candlestick; Park. Tliere was blood, as is usual with a Fullmer fight, but no i knockdowns. There was drama,! as a host of Tiger's countrymen,; resplendent In the flowing robes! of their native land, swarmed into ! the ring and hoisted their idol to their shoulders. Fullmer, unbeaten in 17 straight ring engagements, met defeat in the eighth defense of the crown he had won in this same ri'cy by a 14-round knockout over Carmen Basilio Aug. 28, 1959. Fullmer fought the last 4V* rounds in a familiar Fullmer pattern. He 'was cut and bleeding from gashes over boti eyes, but he was still flailing away with both fists at the final bell. Fullmer will meet the 33-year- old Nigerian again Jan. 19 in either Bozeman, Mont., or Las Vegas, Nev. Does he think h e can whip Tiger in the rematch?

"Right now I don't feel I can't. "Now I'm the champion I think I'll stay the champion," was the response from Tiger. A modest fellow, Tiger had praise for Fullmer. "After three or four rounds I knew I was tangling with the champion." There wa s a disagreement in another area. Fullmer said he was accidentally butted in the ninth round. It slashed open a small cut inflicted in the second round. Tiger claimed the ninth-round gash, which brought blood pouring down to Fullmer's shiny white trunks, came from a solid smash with a right hand. Referee Frankie Carter had it 10-1, judge Jack Downey 9-5 and i judge Vern Bybee 7-5. Under the j California systeu of one or more | points to the winner of a round, none for the loser and zero for an even round.

Hawks Play Shorthanded CHICAGO (AP)—Reg Fleming of the Chicago Black Hawks was unhappy over the incidents marking Tuesday night's 4-4 tie with, the Montreal Canadians in a! fight-filled National Hockey! League game. j Fleming and Gilles Tremblay of i the Canadiens drew match penal- j ties after engaging in a stick ! fight. As a result the Hawks had i to play shorthanded for 10 min-! utes and the Canadiens for 5 minutes. Fleming received the extra 5' minutes for drawing blood when | he slashed open Tremblay's forehead- The severe cut required 35 stitches. Both players will have to go before league president Clarence Campbell and each will probably draw a fine of at least $100. "All I tried to do was defend i myself," moaned Fleming. "He checked me before the whistle! blew and I looked to Referee Frank Udvari for some sort of decision. Udvari didn't do a thing and Tremblay kept swinging so I had to come back at him in self defense. I don't think I should have been given an extra five minutes." Udvari later said he didn't see the start of the fight in the second period but gave Fleming the additional 5 minutes for drawing blood. The game was the only one in the NHL.

NEW YORK (AP)—Most of the college football coaches around, the country—with the possible exception of those in the Southern Conference—have gotten the message from the NCAA rules committee with the result that there is less violence on the field this year. ill, Warriors Swamp Pistons SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—There was no mistaking the star as the Warriors made their National Basketball Association debut in San Francisco a winning one Tuesday night with a 140-113 victory over the Detroit Pistons. For Wilt Chamberlain, a 7-foot 1-inch ace, who set league scoring records for the team in Philadelphia the past seasons, scored 56 points in the new uniform to pace the assault at the Cow Palace. Facing competition from the Gene Fullmer-Dick Tiger middleweight championship boxing match in nearby Candlestick Park the inaugural drew only 5,215. As new coach Bob Feerick started an all-veteran lineup, Ted Luckenbill took the honor of scoring the first points and went on to tally nine of the first 11. In the other NBA action Tuesday, the Cincinnati Royals rallied to edge the Los Angeles Lakers 116-115 and in another oe-point affair, St. Louis beat Chicago 110-109. Syracuse beat New York 123-119. Those results left Syracuse with a 2-0 record atop the Eastern Division and St. Louis with tine same leading mark in the Western. San Francisco opened later than the other teams and the Pistons made a determined bid early in the second half to win their first game in three tries. But after the count was closed to 71-67 for the Warriors, Chamberlain's jump shot began hitting and he sanik eight field goals in the quarter. On Nation's Grid irons An Associated Press survey showed today that the three- pronged campaign started last month by the NCAA Football Rules Committee, Coaches' Asso- : | ciation and Commissioners' Association has brought about a marked improvement in conduct j| on the field. ; In the Southern Conference, though, the league office was ; forced to start a campaign of its . own two weeks ago—fearing that there was too much violence on the field for the safety of the players. Since the anti-violence edict went into effect in the conference, officials have stepped off 1,052 yards in penalties in seven games —an average of 150.3 per game. Last Saturday, in three conference games, a total of 609 yards in penalties was assessed, an average of more than 200 a game. Said Executive Officer Tom Hamilton' of the Big Six on the West Coast: "Before the season started, we warned coaches, athletic directors and officials that strict penalties would be assessed for excessive roughness, especially piling on. "My observation is that there has been far less piling on, not so much because of the penalties inflicted, but because coaches took care of the situation." In the Big Ten, a spokesman said officials had been instructed to call personal fouls early in all games to set the pattern, and get the game under control. Jim Weaver, Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner, said his league has had no trouble for the past couple of years. He pointed out that AAC officials were instructed last August — even before the NCAA campaign—to call an automatic 15-yarA piling-on penalty in any case where a player is hit late- Howard Grulbbs, secretary of. the Southwest Conference, said strict calling of fouls for rough play has been emphasized to officials, coaches and players with the result that there have been fewer penalties called for rough play.

The Associated Press District 5 All-America Board noted the lis't of outstanding ends was unusually long this fall. The same was true last fall, when All-America end Jerry Hillehrand of Colorado top- I ped the list. , Hitchler, G-faot-3 and 217 pounds : has won praise from board mem- , hers, pro scouts and opposing coaches every week. He's 24-year- i old Marine veteran and hard to i fool. Three times he threw Minnesota backs for key losses. On of- fense, he's a swift downfield blocker and the team's best pass receiver, although the Tigers don't throw often. Simmons, 6-foot-3 and 200 plays no defense but may be the nation's best college pass receiver. Coach nienn Dobbs said "I've never setn a college end who could do what Simmons does. He i has great timing in his jumps. He catches 'em flat on his back, one-handed and with three men • covering him." Simmons has 41 catches in five games and may ! break the national record of 60 set two years ago by Washington State's Hugh Campbell. At his present pace, he'll have 82. Other top ends in the Midlands i are Ken Blair of Colorado, who , leads the Big Eight in pass re•• ceiviog, Ray Roberts ol Kansas, I Jim Huge of Nebraska and Cloyd Webb of Iowa. i Centers Wayne Lee of Oklahoma and Peter Quatrochi of Kansas are rated tops at this position by All-America board members. Lee, a senior, is a swift, ,,ower- ful blocker. He opened the hole for Joe Don Looney's 61-yard scoring burst against Kansas. His blocking is so good, Coach Bud 1 Wilkinson uses him as offensive center on both Oklahoma lines. He also can be a top defender, as he proved last year. Quatrochi, a junior, is a fit-ry, rcc'kk'.ss competitor, outstanding every game. ! on both offense and defense. Kenny Heed, a 220-|>ouiut senior from Tulsa, may be the top guard in the area.

Leon Cross, Oklahoma; Mickie ; Walker, Kansas; Dwain Carlson, ; Nebraska, and Dick Walton, Iowa ' State. ! Jerry Wallach of Missouri is j smart and fast and may b e the best of the tackles. Duane Cook and Dennis Ward both rate high at Oklahoma, with Ralph Neely, a swift 245-pound sophomore, the best potentional pro prospect. Other top tackles are Bob Howward, Oklahoma State; Tyrone Robertson, Nebraska, and Fred Kiseman and Marv Clothier, Kansas.
