JPAGE TEN BLYTHEVTTvLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THT7RSDAY, DEC. 18, 1952 Archie Moore Promises Action in Lightheavy Class Br RI> WII.KS ST LOUIS (AP) Able Archie Moore, wearing his new light heavyweight crowr at a jaunty tilt, now hurls a promise that carries a challenge to other hopefuls in his 175 pound class i "I'm going to put some life Into the division. Any contender who deserves a chance will get it from me." / That was one of the first statements made by the 36-year-old St. Louis Negro last night 'as the new world lightheavy king. Only minutes before he had won a unanimous decision over Joey Maxim— a thoroughly beaten but astoundingly game ex-champion. There wasn't much doubt about who would be wearing the crown at fight's end by the time the battering fists of Moore had mauled Joey for seven rounds. •Before the bout, Moore—who weighed 112V4 to Maxim's 174'/2— was an 8-5 favorite, with the odds shifting to 12-5 at light time. Judge Fred Connell gave it to Moore. 87-03, and Judge Howard Hess saw it 82-68. Referee Harry Kessler alone had it surprisingly close. Repeatedly warning Moore to keep his punches up, but penalizing him only once. Kessler scored the "fight 76-14. The Associated Press card had it 87-C3 for Moore. The crowd of 12,610 fans that flocked to the arena—nnd paid s gross gale of $89,487 for. a nev, 6t. Louis record—also shouted ap proval of the decision. After the seventh Moore just went through ihe formality of fighting the pre scribed 15 rounds. Particularly in the 10th did Moore assert his punching super iority. He leaped out of a crouch Bhd landed a smashing right thn sent the 30-year-old Maxim reeling into the ropes. Only Joey's ability to tie up his opponent kept hin from suffering the second knock out of his 12-year career. That was the big question throughout the fight. How muc' can Maxim iakc? He can take an amazing ainoun of punishment, He was hurt 1 every round after the seventh And even in ^he first he was stag tiered by a right and had to cllnc to clear his head. In the eighth Moore' opened cut under Maxim's left eye. In th ninth blood spilled from a dee gash on Maxim's left cheek, H finished the 10th with a malchtn cut on the right cheek. Time and again Moore u leashed ihe full fury of almost decade of frustration as the "un crowned champion." only., to fin Maxim still on-his feet. Mt shuffled Inlo clinches, took le Jibs and tried • unsuccessfully, ivold Moore's jarring, sneak right hand. f.U was only the third title d fense for Maxim since the Clev land Italian won the cro\vn fro Freddie Mills In 1950. Moore, contender for 10 years and No challenger for almost live, ha been Ignored until now »s l poi drawing card. Maxim got $100,000 for Ihe fig' .under a contract guarantee. Receipts from a nation-wide tel cast were not disclosed, but Hit more than the title was left Mooro. For Archie, that enough. in Great Rally To Tumble Whitehaven Junior High School's Papooses came roar- ng back in the tag-end of the third and in the final .quarter esterclay to overcome Whitchnven, Tcnn,, 44-41, at Whitc- aven. * Playing their MB logs Meet Ole Miss Game at Little Rock; Texas-Tennessee, Rice- Wave Games Also Up Ry The Associated Press Pour Southwest Conference bas Oial! quints take lo the maples onight in an effort to better the OOP'S non-conference, pre-sejison ecord of 13 wins and 6 defeats.

By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK (AP) —St. Louis owner Fred Saigh, slowly bxit surely, appears to b winning; his determined battle to get B share of the television receipts from Cardina games at other parks. The latest club about to accede to his demands are the Philadelphia Phillies. ' ' dodgers Is another matter. It Is Iheir .belief, that every home club -'As of the moment-, only the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds have enlcred Into video agreement with Saigh, whereby the Invadlnff team gets a piece of lhat money. But it is quile likely that the others will fall in line. "I don't always agree with the things that Mr. Wrigley (Phil Wricley, owner of the Cubs) proposes," said Bob Carpenter, owner of the Phils, "but I have discovered that he's invariably right. "Wrigley is way ahead of all of us in Ihe matter of radio, television and promotional ideas. He knows more about those items, and how to use them, than any oilier baseball man. So I shouldn't be surprised if I follow suit." Meaning that the Phils, loo, will share their video. Saigh has agreed to tak» "only" 30 per cent of the television receipts from Cardinal carries at Wrieley Field but is asking as high as 50 per cent from the New York Giants. Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Prrills because "Ihej get more out of their television rights than the Cubs." The Giants i and Dodgers have refused even to discuss, the matter with the Redbird president whose steady refrain has been, "No cut, no television." Chances are, however, that Ealgh will tone down his demands to about 40 per cent. Whether that will be agreeable to the Giants and Osceola Juniors To Missco A— The Osceola Junior girls basketball team will be seeking their fourth win in B TO\V and the Junior hoys will be making their fifth attempt to pet into the winner's circle tonight when the two tenms trrk to West Ridge to play Missco's junior t^ams. After n slow start, the Junior Seminolotles have racked up their last three opponents and their last win over Luxorn was one in which they proved they cannot be dls- counted in the future. The boys have been on the losing side of the ledger four times and are getting anxious (o win that first onr. Size has been their main drawback thus far. Starting lor the Junior Scmlnol- ettes will be Anna Beth Morrow. Betty Clare Bowles and Fonda Wcldon in the forward slots and Jennie Vec GiHentine, Melba Jonefi and either Carol Jones are Connie Kis^ell in the guard positions.

"I think 50 per cent Is nn equi able figure," said Saigh. "but am willing to listen to reasonabl arguments for a lesser cut. Whn I'm really nfter Is an equal balanc of strength in our league. Prcce rtent is a great,*thing in basebal I'm trying to establish one In th case. The amount Is secondary. Hew Phil Secretary AAA leaders hope to gain the-f- nnderstanding aqd enlist the aid i of fans in Its work. . i Johnie Burnett, executive secre- j tary of the Association, has written an open letter to civic clubs/ PTA groups, sports writers and sports announcers. The letter carries Ihe theme "Let's keep junior and senior high school sports amateur." "We feel we have come a long way with pupils, coaches and game officials in working toward our goal of sound athletic programs," Burnett explained. "But some of the people downtown don't understand our program and we're ytng to enlighten them." Pre tentative Measures It isn't that any distasteful situa- has developed in Arkansas gh school sports. "We're trying to prevent rather ian cure," said Burnett. In his open ' letter, the AAA sec- etary declares that "puring the ast year, the college -athletic pro- ram has been plagued with sen- Unnnl outbreaks involving ques- onable practices by plnyers, oubtful solicitation policies anci ^sportsmanlike nets by teams heir followers." Then he explains that strict pol- cles and regulations of the AAA. overning body of high school ports, are designed to prevent imilar situations on the prep evel. Regulations Listed These regulations include age Emits, n ban ngainst a higi chool athlete participating in in .ependent contests, bans again: nyone except the schools making \wards to high school athletes nm irohlbition of postseason a 11-stn games or other "extravaganzas' which promoters might . us athletes. Burnett says there is "a decide: effort on the part of promoter • sponsor pee wee sports." He adds that the AAA is try In i discourage this because: "The boys who's been feted i aee wee sports are a blase bunc oy the time high school coachc get hold of them. They've^ hn longer trips than they'll get nigh school athletes. They've ha banquets end awards."

This is the day the team's stock- lolders—the people who own the earn—choose up sides on the quar- el between President Ellis Ryan nd his other officers over how to un the baseball club. Most of the club's stockholders were to meet in Municipal Stadium, to get a first hond look at Ryan's three-year record. Show-Down The special meeting was called by opponents of Ryan in the hope that showdown vote would result in a w board of directors strong enough to fire him from his Job. Donald W. Hornbeck, the club's secretary and a director. Is the spokesman for this group. He thinks this can be done. Ryan and Ihe five directors supporting him believe they wield enough support for a vote of confidence. On the other hand, a number of people on both sides said the vote may be so close that nothing will be decided finally today. That would leave the board as it is—six directors for Ryan, six against him In that, the first might continue until the regular annual stockholders meeting Sept. 12. Rep. Paul Van Dalsem of Perry who proposed abolishment of the posilion last Monday, yesterday moved that the motion be rescinded and the council promptly approved. The original recommendation would have gone to the 1053 legislature, in the form of a-rider on the university's proposed .biennial appropriation bill, A threat on the part of other council members to rescind the recommendation apparently caused Van Dalsem's action. Van Dalsem said he 'had heard that the university.faculty committee on athletics Tuesday, had '"refused" to hire Paul (Bear) Bryant of the University of Kentucky as head football coach. Bryant has been a prominent applicant for the position vacated by Otis Douglas, who resigned after the team won only two games and losing eight. Rep. Clifton Wade of Washington County said that "it isn't true" that the faculty committee had turned down Bryant, who has not applied for the job. Monday. Van Dalsem blamed Barnhill for "strife within the tth- etic department," which the legls- ator said led to a losing football earn and the resignation of Douglas.
