COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, DEC. 13, 1952 A sharp-shooting Milan, Teu'n., team'got the range last night and grabbed n racehorse 73-54 decision from Blytheville in the Chickasaws' first game of the season.

Armorel held n 28-16 rmlftlme margin and led 35-27 at the end cf the third quarter. But .thanks mainly to the rebounding and shooting elforts of Sophomore Danny Cobb. the Bees pulled up to within six points of Armorel with 4:30 left In the final period wlun the scoro stood at 38-32.

Saxton Fight Draws Protest Commission to Ask Matchmaker of IBC To Explain' By JACK NEW YORK Ml _ The boxing director of the International Box- Ing Club was asked to appear at Ihe New York State Athletic Commission Monday to discuss future matchmaking policy after last night's one-round knockout win by Johnny Saxton at Madison Square Garden. Harry Markson, IBC official, was is-kcd to come down to the com- 7iission by Chairman Bob Chrlst- cnbcrry, who watched at ringside when Cuban Rao! Perez was counted out In 2:54 of Ihe first round illcr taking a rlght-,left combination to the body.

Christenberry saitl he had been assured by Dr. Ira McCown and Dr. Alexander Schitf thnt Saxton's blows caused sufficient pain to nusc a knockout. The 20-year-old Cuban crumpled unexpectedly and collapsed near [he ropes -without warning. Saxton had thrown a right to the body and then followed with a left hook. Dr. McCown, who examined Perez IB the dressing room, sale! the left was a solar plexus punch that caused a "mild abdominal trauma." The fighter quickly recovered. Can't Find Opponent Saxton, winner of 34 straight pro fights, just can't seem to make a big hit in his home town. He wa? involved In two unsatisfactory fights with Livio Minelli and Lester Felton last winter, winning both. Perez, n 5-1 underdog, simply collapsed^ completely before Sax ton hardly got warmed up In his latest outing. The small gathering of 3,GB6, paying $11.264 nnd the much larger network television audience, saw very little action until Ihe sudden ending. Dr. Vincent Nardielln of the commission examined the stricken Pereziin the ring and said he was "sort of paralyzed."

MAIN ST. Inquiry Made At Daiias Meet By HAROLD V. RATLIFF DALLAS l» — Oklahoma, In a onference that bans bowl games nd in an association of schools nat frowns on athletic subsldlza- lon. Is seeking a return to th» Southwest Conference of which it vas a charter member. Walter Kraft, Oltlahoma'i faculty epresentative, visited the Southwest Conference faculty commlt- ee meeting here yesterday and nade a preliminary Investigation f the possibility of rejoining the ioutlnvest Conference "sometlm* n the future."
