CAREFUL,' LOUIS WARNS SONNY INDEPENDENT-P«s« C-5 LW« (IKX un. nv. r«». n. tm JOE LOUIS Offer* Ring Strategy ORTIZ READY TOKYO Cf -- W o r l d lisiwelst champion Carlos Ortiz say* he is ready to defend his title "any time and any place" against KO. 1 contender Kenny By WOL CR1MSLEY '. MIAMI BEACH. Ha. Ml --Joe Louis said Thursday that if champion Sonny Lis- toa tries for a quick knockout he may be carried the fun 15 rounds by Cassrus Clay in their heavyweight title bout here next Tuesday. *I don't see how Sonny can lose--he is so rough and strong -- but I keep tefling him he better not lose his head against this boy," the Brown Bomber explained u he watched the champion train. "If he goes in there mad and trying to knock Clay's block off in record time, he may have a Tight on his hand. This boy is awfully fast--fast as any man I've ever seen." Louis added. Louis, one cf the game's heavyweight greats, is per- haps closer than tcy other person to the surly, perpetually frowning titleholder. whose last three victories have taken a little more than six minutes. . Joe and his trife live with Ustco in the latter*i temporary quarters--a iwank $200.000 beach home next door to one owned by New York Yankee owner Dan Topping. When the day*j training Is over, Louis and listen sit on a Louis XIV sofa in front of the television zet · and discuss tactics. ', "Sonny doesn't .talk much,'* Louis said, "and 1 don't try to ten him how to fight -- he already knows bow to do that. We just talk about strategy and I try to give him some hints on balance and stuff so he won't look so bad ia the ring. 1 want him Dot only to win but to look good." Louis regards liston as one of the best heavyweight champions of all time. "He may not be as clissy and smooth as some of them, but he's as rough and tough as they come, and strong as a buH" Louis said. "I ii"V he is as good as any champion we've ever had -- Detnpsey. Tunney. MorcUr-o. even myself. "Sometimes. I watch Liston and wonder how I might have fared against hixa at my peak. I think it would have been a jab-for- jab situation and the first one who connected with a right would win." Louis said day probably is faster than twp speedsters who gave him some trouble ia his heyday -- BiHy Conn and Bob Pastor. But he added: "He don't have the ex- perience and probably can't do the things those fellows could do." LISTON-vs-CL AY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT! vn inc.*"«r MAMMOTH T.V. SCREEN!

At Phoenix on February 9. in the AHRA (American Hot Rod Association) Championships, 1964 competition-equipped Dodge and Plymouth Super Stocks came up with top honors. Dodge as Top Stock Eliminator and Plymouth winning Mr. Stock Eliminator. And on February 16, in the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Winlernationals in Pomona, the story was the same. A1964 Plymouth Super Stock captured the Top Stock Eliminator crown before more than 50,000 fans. These are the top events in officially-sanctioned dragstrip national competition. Dragstrip r ad ng--America's latest million-fan sport--is a searching test of acceleration, smooth efficient transmission of power. As ataays, Chrysler engineering passed the test with flying colors. Competition in dragstrip races, stock car racing and road ralEes continues to confirm the excellence of Chrysler Corporation engineering. You'll find this excellence reflected in the new 1964's from Chrysler Corporation. Cars that handle easier, respond faster, and deliver ever safer, more dependable performance for you.
