Musson, a mere 5-7 and 155 pounds, powered Miss Bardahi around the three-mile Detroit River course at a sizzling average of 105.212 miles per hour to edge Bill Cantrell and Gale V for the $10,000 first prize and the coveted Gold Cup. Jiusson and Miss Bardahi had 1.500 points, to 1.400 for Gale V, which won the final heat Muncey and the famed Miss Thriftway, winners of the last two Gold Cup races, finished sbcth in the field of 12. Miss Bardahi won all three of her fweliminary heats to pick up 1,200 points going into the final heat. Gale V and Tahoe Miss each had 1,000 points and had a chance to win it all if Jliss Bar dahl faltered. Cantrell, a former Indianapolis "500" race driver, made his bid for victory by picking up 400 points as he made a farce out of the final heat. But Miss Bardahl picked up 300 points for finishing second and that was more than enough for victory in the overall point system. Jliss Bardahi, owned by Ole Bardahi of Seattle, set a Gold Cup lap record of 114.650 miles per hour in the second heat. More than 200,000 fans janmjed the course. Kearns, fight game's fabulous manager, dies Patterson bars spectators LAS VEGAS (UPD-FIoyd Patterson worked out in private today, but champion Sonny Listen continued public training sessions m preparation for their July 22 UUe bout. Patterson battered a new sparring mate, J.P. Spencer of Las Vegas, in the third round of workouts Sunday causing Dan Florio, Patterson's • trainer, to stop the session. The 214 - pound Spencer was forced to quit alter two minutes. Listen sparred two rounds with Howard King, who once briefly held the Nevada State heavyweight championship. MIAMI, Fla. (UPD-Through out the boxmg world today the bell was mournfully tolling "ten' for Jack (Doc) Keams, the fight game's most fabulous manager, who died here early Sunday in his sleep. Jack Dempsey and others among the eight world champions who had been managed by 80- year-old Doc phoned or messaged their condolences to members of the family. Dempsey, 68, who teamed with Keams and the late promoter, Tex Ricfcard, in the Roaring Twenties to produce the first million-dollar fi^t gate, assured over the phone from New York: "L'll fly into Miami Tuesday afternoon." Services were tentatively scheduled for the Philbrick Funeral Home in nearby Coral Gables, Fla., at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Doc was given the baptismal name John Leo McKeman shortly after his birth at Waterloo, Mich., Aug. 17, 1882. But later when he became a professional boxer in the Far West, he shortened the name to Jack Keams. And it was Dempsey who gave him the nickname of Doc because Keams knew so many prescriptions for blood-stoppers for cuts and for limbering oils used in rubdowns. Keams recently estimated that he had managed more than 500 professional boxers and that "since nearly all of my boys were good earners, I figure their total purses must have exceeded $40 million, and that my share was about $13 million." He paused then and added, "And you'd never believe a man could go through that much money." Keams, the real "golden boy of boxing, said heavywei^t champion Dempsey's purses and other earnings totalled about $19 million, and that the money registered by Mickey Walker, former welterweight and middleweight champion, approximated $6 million. Ill Sine* March Doc. spry and wiry in his 80th year but somewhat withered and stooped, was taken ill at Los Angeles in March but he returned to Miami, where he underwent a month's hospital check-up. Then he went to the home of his son, Jackie — a Miami fireman and one of the nation's foremost skin divers. It was at Jackie's home where he fell last week while trying to walk into the yard and broke his right nrist. Since that injury he had been confined to bed, where his son found him dead Sunday mommg.

California girl defeated in Wimbledon final WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) — Husky blonde Margaret Smith, a prohibitive favorite, became the first Australian to win the Wimbledon women's singles tennis title today when she scored a 6-3, 64 revenge victory over American "upset queen" Billie Jean Moffitt. 19. Miss Moffitt. a student from Los Angeles State College, had scored a stunning upset against Miss Smith in an early round of this tournament last year. But this time the hard-hitting Aussie girl was not to be denied, even though a crowd of 17,000 at the center court of the all England Club cheered for the unseeded American girl. The crowd even readied the point of cheering when Miss Smith made an error. Miss Smith, cinrently regarded as the world's top feminine net star, went into today's match such a heavy choice that British bookmakers refused to quote any odds against her. And she was looking to wipe out the memory of the fact that Miss Moffitt upset her last year, making her the first top-seeded player in Wimbledon history to lose in the first round. Today's match originally was scheduled for last Saturday, but was postponed until today because of rain. Doc Keams was looking ahead when gong sounded By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer CLEVELAND, Ohio (UPI) There's no way today to e.xplain or fill the vacuum. You know the lAone won't ring anymore in the middle of the night with a call form San Diego, or maybe Stockholm. No more will you hear that vibrant voice announcmg flippantly: "I'm wheelin' and dealin' here but I'll see you in a couple of days. Got somethmg big cookin" but just wanted to see how you were doin.'" For two years you sat with him, off and on, writing his life story and he led you by the hand through the raucous days of the West, up the Barbary Coast and on mto the Roaring '20s, the thirsty '30s, the furious '40s, and on through the years which seemed without endmg. But not any more. For Jack (Doc) Keams is dead just a month short of his 81st birthday. You saw him early last week and, while he was thin and had his right arm in a cast after breaking his wrist in a fall, he still spoke of the only thmg that actually concerned Mm, namely the future. The pale blue eyes and the crooked grin still gave hun the look of a larcenous lep- rediann. He had known them all through the years ... the prince of Wales and a young engtaeer in the Klondike named Herbert Hoover... Klondike Kate and Texas Guinan .,. Jack London and Ernest Hemingway .. .Diamwid Jim Brady and Toots Shore... AI Capone and Frankie Carbo . . . John McGraw and Joe DiMaggio: They'll remember him best as the man who made Jack Dempsey and the million-doUar gate. But he managed seven othw world champicms, including Mickey Walker and Ardue Moore, and threw away the millions he made faster than it came in. "The think I needed more than any of my fighters," he chuckled, "was a manager." Some of them called him the buccaneer of the boxing world. To others he was the all-time king of the con men. "Sure there were times I loaded the gloves," he said as he sat in that big four-posted bed last Wednesday. "^Vhat happened to those other fellows was their business. I looked out for me and my own." "Just like now," he added ve- hanently. "I gotta get out of this bed and get back out to Vegas for that Listen fight. In a year I expect to have my new boy, Jefferson Davis, in their fighting for the title." Ke had been everywhere and done everything, this spidery octogenarian who was the softest "touch" and quickest check-grabber to the world. He worked on whaling ships, as a cow puncher, smuggled Chinese ashore to Seattle, boxed and "worked a million angles." Yet, whatever he did, "Doc" managed it with flamboyant enjoyment. It wasn't the "score" that mattered; it was whether you could "con" somebody who was trytog to beat you. If you couldn't shoot an "angle" or beat a challenge there was no fun to trying.
