His father-in-law died of a heart attack suffered at ringside when Tiger won the World Boxing Association title with a unanimous 15-round decision Tuesday night in San Francisco. When Gene returned home he was battered, bruised, grief stricken. He said he had serious doubts if he would ever fight again. "Is it worth it?" he asked. "My father-in-law dies, perhaps from the excitement. My mother carries on so every fight and my wife has been having pains in her arm like a stroke. "Is it worth all this to keep on fighting? Maybe I'm over the hill as a fighter and should quit."But Gene said later, "It's too early to say right now that I'm retiring. Plenty of thoughts come to one's mind at a time like this." Gene and Tiger are tentatively scheduled to- fight for the title again Jan. 19 either in Bozeman, Mont., or Las Vegas, Nev. early stages of 'your roao, wonderfully smoothed.

Nelson A Rockefeller bears a fan.ous name, but until recently—say, in the last quarter of a century—a name so synonymous with riches would have been looked up on as a liability. Democrats, hoping to get in a few blows at whatever presidential ambitions Rockefeller has, have chosen Robert M. Morgen- thau to oppose him. Morgenfihau is relatively unknown, but he has a fine political name. His father, Henry Jr., was Franklin D.
