Varsity triumphs in A Club benefit game It was a wild, whacky, weird basketball game at the senior high gym last flight, as the Port Angeles High varsity basketball playe'fs downed the coaches 41-36 in the annual A Club benefit basketball game. Some 200 fans showed up to witness the eVent and any similarity to basketball will be forgotten by those who were in attendance. The varisty "All-Stars" came out in the most colorful assortment of basketball uniforms ever seen on a local court. ONE PLAYER WAS dressed as a jet pilot, complete with helmet, goggles and life vest. There was the "calendar girl," complete with nylon stockings and garters, even! One varsity player wore purple trunks, red tights and blue socks! The game was secondary to fun, but the varsity players had more stamina at the end of three quarters and raced to a fast finish. It was 6-6 at the quarter and 16-14 at the half, with the varsity leading. They carried a 30-23 lead into the final period and won going away. BOB KLOCK and Marv Cross, the Roughrider cage coaches, led all scorers with 13 and 10 respectively, while Bob Jones and Toby Williams led the varsity with six each. PRELIMINARY GAME The "A" Club "pick-up" team 71,527 attend SEATTLE (AP) - Attendance at the 1963 state high school Class AA basketball tournament here, lastone in the 39 year history of the event, totalled 71,527 fans. The figure was the fifth largest on record of the 16-team tourney, 'Ivan Travis, University of Washington ticket manager, announced Friday. The record of 77,528 was set last year. In a last-day mixup on ticket sales, crowds of fans milled around outside the Washington pavilion unable to get in although there were hundreds of unused seats inside. .Next year the tourney will be a two-day affair limited to the four teams which survive regional playoffs.

California's Governor Edmund G Brown meanwhile called for abolishment of professional boxing in this state. A team of consulting physicians indicated little hope for Moore, who lost his 126-pound title Thursday night and lapsed into a coma an hour after losing by a knockout to Sugar Ramos of Mexico City. 'His prognosis is poor," the physicians reported Friday night after examining the unconscious boxer. "He still fails to respond to painful stimuli and is in a deep coma." SEVERE BRUISES Moore suffered severe bruises in the brain stem area at the lower base of his skull. Although the physicians did not estimate odds on recovery, a spokesman at White Memorial Hospital said a condition of "fair" would have given Davey only a 50-50 chance. In Sacramento, Brown declared: 'The Davey Moore fight is one more illustration that boxing is a brutal sport even under ideal conditions—if it can be called a sport." He said he would ask the legislature to submit a constitutional amendment to the voters in 1964 to outlaw boxing in California. The state constitution specifies a vote is required to abolish professional boxing and wrestling. Brown said he will meamwnile appoint an emergency committee .to survey boxing safety measures that now exist and recommend new provisions until the people act. The 29-year-old Moore, of Colubus, Ohio, father of five children ranging in age from 2 to 11, was knocked down twice in the 10th round by the 21-year-old Ramos in their scheduled 15-rounder at Dodger Stadium. HELPLESS ON ROPES As the round ended Davey was helpless over a rope and his manager, Willie Ketchum, called a halt despite Moore's protestations that he was all right. He talked with newsmen for 40 minutes, and then, after they left, he complained of a severe headache, fainted and slipped into the coma. Moore's tragedy came just two days less than a year after Benny (Kid) Paret was fatally injured in losing his welterweight title to Emile Griffith in New York, and six months ago to the day that Argentine heavyweight Alejandro Lavorante was knocked uncon- scious in a Los Angeles bout. Lavorante, who underwent brain operations, remains in a coma. Surgery was not contemplated n Moore's case because of the area of injury and because there was no hemorrhaging. Referee George Latka, a former lightweight boxer, said Moore had not appeared to be himself during the bout. LOOKED CLOSELY "I looked at him closely after the first knockdown in the 10th," Latka said. "Moore's eyes looked OK. His arms were moving, and his reflexes still seemed to be all right. But I'd been worried about Moore's legs from the start. "Frankly, J've never seen him flounder 'so much with his footwork. From the first round on, his legs weren't working right. He didn't move like he usually does." Three physicians from Loma Linda University School of Medicine examined Moore about 24 hours after the fight. His blood pressure was down and his temperature, at 96.5 degrees, was below normal, although it had gone as high as 102. Mrs. Geraldine Moore, the fighter's wife, who never watches him box, kept vigil at the hospital through the early hours—and then needed to be admitted herself, suffering from fatigue and shock. Later, after sleeping, she said: "Davey has done well during his career. This was God's will to make him stop fighting." The distraught Ramos canceled his plan to leave Los Angeles today to visit Mexico City, and the president of Mexico, Adolfo Lopez-Mateos. "I pray," the Cuban expatriate said sadly. "I'm happy to have won the championship, but I didn't want to hurt anybody doing it. I wouldn't want this to happen to any opponent, or anybody in the ,port." 2ARLY LEAD No one seemed to know which mnch or punches did the damage. VIoore took many hard blows to he head, both in the ninth and enth rounds, after building up an early lead. Ramos said, "It was a matter of destiny. Fighters go into the •ing to win, but we're all comrades. . . . We're not out to hurt each other. Moore was a gentleman. I liked him." Chairman Harry Falk of the alifornia Athletic Commission visited the hospital several times. Asked his opinion of the governor's declaration, Falk replied, 'Right now, our problem is Davey Moore. The other can wait until next week or next month."

Details of telephone conversations were given Friday by Butts and Bryant for the first Hme since the Saturday Evening Post charged them with collusion in the Sept. 22 game which Alabama won. 35-0. Both have repeatedly denied the charges. They issued statements 'after disclosure that Dr. Frank 7 Rose, University of Alabama president, had written in a letter that Bryant .said he received information from Butts aliout Georgia plays. However, Rose said his letter— written March 6 to Dr. 0. C. Aderhold, University of. Georgia president—dealt hi layman's. langviage with discussions -.of : ;changes^ in techniques by Bryant.

The university official said he was confident Bryant "was not involved in any attempt to rig or fix the game with Georgia or any other universities." "And even more particularly, the implication that he bet on any ball games is wholly false and without any foundation in fact. "My letter to Dr. Aderhold was not intended to suggest from :oach Bryant's statement to me that he gained secret information from coach Butts." Rose said he regarded Butts' statement to Bryant only as warning against rules infractions "which would prevent injury to a player and another incident as in the Georgia Tech-Alabama game of 1961." In that game, an Alabama player struck an opponent in the face with his elbow, causing serious injury. The Alabama player said it was accidental. In his letter to Aderhold, Rose quoted Bryant Cas" saying ,Butts warned iu a.telephone conversation Of Sept. 14, that some Georgia plays; might. result in. penalties against Alabama's "defense; that Alabama .center Lee Roy Jordan might be-expelled from the game and that a Georgia player might be hurt seriously. Bryant, declined comment,on the letter, which Aderhold said had been subpoenaed. Several investigations are under way as a result of the Post charges. r By DON WEISSS Associated .Press Sports Wrftw LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - "I haven't even thought about Loyola," Cincinnati coach Ed Jucker said Friday night after his top- ranked Bearcats methodically put away Oregon State 80-46 to keep alive their chances for an unprecedented third straight National C ceclented third straight National Collegiate Basketball championship. Chances are Jucker will have done plenty of thinking by the time mighty Cincinnati faces race horse Chicago Loyola tonight in th nationally televised title game at 9:36 p.m., EST. The Ramblers of George Ireland are that good, and every one of the 19,153 fans who packed Freedom Hall for the semifinals knows it after watching them shatter the 20-game winning streak of Duke's second-ranked Blue Devils, 94-75. With remarkable balance, great jumpers and sharp shooters, third- ranked Loyola bolted into a 17- point lead before Duke knew what happened, and blazed away to safety in the last 3Vfe minutes after Art Heyman and Jeff Mullins had fired the desperate Blue Devils within three points, 74-71. The relentless pressure and remarkable poise that enabled Cincinnati to tako another step toward basketball history while de- fensing football ace Terry Baker into total frustration was anti- climatic to the crowd-pleasing show of the Ramblers. With Les Hunter and Vic Rouse, a pair of 6-foot-7 former high school teammates in Nashville, Tenn., and All-America Jerry Harkness doing the big job, the Ramblers looked like powerful threats to Cincinnati's basketball empire. "They're a real fine team," said Duke's crestfallen coach Vic Bubas. "They have tremendous runners and marvelous jumpers. The first half was probably our worst 20 minutes this year but I'm sure Loyola had something to do with it." Loyola takes the nation's top- ranking offfense, now at 92.9 point a game, against Cincinnati's best- in-the-nation defensive average. of 52.6. All five starters for the Ramblers once again hit double figures in the semifinals with Hunter getting 29 points, Harkness 20, Ron Miller 18, John Egan 14 and Rouse 13. It was more than enough to handle the twin terrors of Duke player of the year Art Heymatii who had 29 points, and Jeff Mullins, who added 21.

The annual cage showdown, held this year at Louisville, Ky., brings the four regional champions from over the country together. Washington has held the tourney twice.

Do you feel an outsidr in the iO-mile hike crowd? Do you think this is strictly a .vorld for bright young guys, who jvear sharp suits and wits to match? Well, here's good cheer for oldsters huddled in what seems a Custer's last stand against war- pathing youth. A roll call in the realm of sports eadership reveals the elders still are big pow-wow men.
