Harry Markson was commenting about the ticket orders coming In lor the Rocky Marciano-Archie Moore heavyweight title bout at the Yankee Stadium. Sept 30. The usually worried looking Interna tional Boxing Club official even smiled for a moment "You know the ticket sal won't be officially opened until early In Auffuat and yet the orders are coming In," said Promoter Jim Norris' chief New York executive yesterday.

This will be the best of any IBC promotion (Louis-Walcott was promoted by Mike Jacob). "We're not filling any of the orders yet just accepting them. It's a nice feeling to have them come in." Marciano is a 13-5 favorite to beat Moore and there's a good bit of betting "action" already. nt get by the light hitting, fast moving "Clevelander, the dope Is that the Sugarman will quit If he wins, he'll probably get a title shot a Bobo Olson.

CAP) Roy Campanella. after a 13 day layoff, found his J335 batting average tops in the National League yesterday. While the Brooklyn catcher, sidelined with a knee injury, forged ahead of league leader Richie Ashburn of Philadelphia, who slipped 17 points last week to -227. Detroit's brilliant outfielder Al Kaline held a 45 point margin over runnerup Nellie Fox of Chicago. Kaline's average could not be budged despite a five point loss to .37L Fox dropped from .335 to .326. Ahbarn, mhe was panned up In the All-Star selections, h in his kls wont slump ef the season. He collected only 5 hits in St at bats to tumble from .352 to .377. Duke Snider's three home runs kepts him one behind Cincinnati's Ted KlU5zewski in the home run derby. He has 28 homers to Big Xlu's 2a The most rotable change in the American League was produced by the Yankees' Mickel Mantle who is swinging a hot bat. His 12 for 25 output moved him from a seventh place .303 mark to fourth with .318. only two points behind third place Harvey Xuenn of Detroit who raised his average three points to .320. Mantle's three borne runs also gave him the lead la that department with 21, two ahead of Kaline. Jim Komtaaty of New York was still tops in American league pitching percentage with a - record for 1.000. Cleveland's Herb Score added 11 strikeouts to hold his league leading mark at 137. Don Newcombe of Brooklyn, with another victory added to his record, reminded the pace-setter in the senior circuit with 14-1 and a .333 per rentage. Saa Jones of Chicago maintained his strikeout lead with 111. I It looks like an easy $15,000 at first glance but husky Bob Baker of Pittsburgh could blow the biggest opportunity of his career, July 18. That's when the second ranking heavyweight contender meets bulky Rex Layne of Utah on the tatter's home grounds of West Jordan. Utah, in a return 10-rounder. Baker has been guaranteed $15,000, the heftiest payday of his six years of pro battling. Winner of nine straight, including a decision over Layne in Brooklyn last Feb. 25, Baker is in line for a title shot in February if Marciano whips Archie Moore. Sept. 20. Layne. now ranked ninth, had an unbeaten string of eight snapped by Baker. Former Lightweight Champion Jimmy Carter is so "busted up" that he won't be able to fight his return bout with newly crowned Wallace (Bud) Smith until Octo ber, at least, says Manager Willie Metchum. "His face is all busted up," said Weeping Willie. "He needed 28; stitches on his eye cuts. He got 23 stitches for two cuts over his right eye and five for one over his left eye." j Smith took the title from Car-' ter in Boston. June 29. Christopher. Stair Traded To Glass A; By GEORGE RIDGE Earl Smith, slugging outfielder from last year's champion Stars, was returned to Phoenix yester day along with Howard Padgett a proven Class A mfielder. But it was no bargain basement deal for the Stars, who had to sell Outfielders Joe Christopher and Gene Stair to Lincoln, Neb of the Western League in order to complete the deal. The move yesterday left Phoe nix baseball fans with, several questions in their mmds: 1. Even though he did set a league record for runs-batted-in last year, will Smith's presence be enough to offset the loss of Christopher and Stair in the outfield? 2. Who is going to play left field for Phoenix? It is assured that Padgett will take over second base, a problem for the Stars all year. Danny Coughlin, who started oit the season there, handled the glove capably but not the bat Ellis Burton, playing second now. will either shove fTharlev Piatt out of the shortstop position or take over btair s spot in leu field. Smith, who started the season with Pittsburgh, finds his trip back to Phoenix the terminal of a dis appointing journey through base ball. The slugging sparkplug of last year's Stars hit well in spring training for Pittsburgh and opened for the Bucs in centerfield. When his hitting failed in the Big Show,, however, he was shipped to New Orleans and then to Lincoln, Neb. Smith and Padgett join the Stars in Douglas tonight. Christo pher and Stair left yesterday, while the team enjoyed an open date. Stair, hitting .376 with 103 runs- batted-in for the second-place Stars, probably will move to third base with Lincoln. Speedster Christopher leads the A-M League in runs scored and leaves Phoenix (batting) .356. He has scored 113 times. Smith and Padgett arrive with the club at a time when it has won 11 of 13 games and stands eight games back of front-run-ningCananea. Manager Jerry Gardner, who okayed the deal that gave Christopher and Stair their big chance, apparently thinks Smith's bat and experience will be the difference between a return championship for Phoenix or a runnexup berth. Also promised to the Stars, ac cording to club officials, are an outfielder and pitcher. Gardner feels that if Smith hadn't been pushed into the big time so fast, he could have stuck with a Triple-A or Double-A club. "I'm hoping we can start him on the road back up there," said Gardner. "He has tremendous ability." Bruce Kennedy pitches for the Stars tonight against the Bisbee-Douglas Copper Kiags. Round-Trip Channel Try Chadwick Ready For Swim DOVER (AP) Florence Chadwick, California swimmer who has swum the English Channel three times, watched the rippling waves last night and wondered whether today niiglu be a good day to do it again. If weather is favorable Miss Chadwick planned to plunge into the water on an ambitious project to swim across, catch her breath on the French shore, and then swim back. She tried it in 1953 when she reached France without difficulty, but gave up after swimming 2 hours on the return journey. On that swim she set an England-to-France record, for me"n and women, of 14 hours 42 seconds. "I feel unusually fit," Miss Chadwick said before an early bedtime last night "We'll decide if weather is suitable tomorrow morning, and if conditions are right, set off on a night swim to France." There was a little thunder and a slight breeze last night to break a moderate heat wave. There were no storms in the offing, forecasters said, but Miss Chadwick, thinking about that long return trip, said she will wait for ideal conditions. The period of neap tides when tricky channel currents are their gentlest will last until July 16. There will be other neap periods begin ning July 27 and Aug. 11. The channel is about 21 miles wide at its narrowest point, but a swimmer crossing it is swept so far east and west by currents running in opposite directions it is necessary to cover almost twice the distance to reach France. Miss Chadwick swam from France to England in 1950 in 13 hours, 20 minutes, and in 1951 crossed from England to France in 16 hours, 20 minutes. Fan Fare By Walt Ditzen HIT TrtSSKSN ASP VAN A fcASECFBEER Dimpled Thompson Shows Confidence By WHITNEY MARTIN NEW YORK (AP) Peter Thomson again has won the British Open Golf Championships, and we are curious as to. his ac tivities between the third and final rounds of the event at St. Andrews last week. Last year he was tied for the lead with two other players at the end of the third round, and consequently was quite conservative. All he did was rush back to his hotel and get a clean shirt and a white jacket so he would be dressed properly for the presentation ceremony when they got around to handing him the cup. this YEAR HE naa a one- stroke lead at the end of the third round, so with nothing to worry about he probably went out and spent a good hunk of the money he was going to win, or let it be known he was ready to endorse various products for a modest fee. ' He's a supremely confident young fellow, is the dimpled Australian. He doesn't exactly tell his rivals they might as well give up and go home when he is even or ahead with only a round to play, but his activities get across the idea. LIKE A NASHUA or Native Dancer who is content to just poke his nose home in front, Thomson seems to shoot just well v enough to win. Last year when Dai Rees had come in with 284 i and Peter knew it would take 283 1 to beat him, he was asked what! would have happened if Rees had j had 283. "If he had got 283, I would have got a 282," he said simply. That the American entrants didn't fare too well over there this year is not too surprising. Our best players weren't entered, with the exception of Ed Furgol, our 1954 Open Champion whoj still is bothered by an injury to his one sound arm. Leave the chicken-feed to the pigeons!
