To date, this corner has refrained from comment( ing upon two subjects which are in the public eye to-day and which are commandeering most of the sports ~ page headlines. ' ja~« The subjects are: _££ 1. The Bear Bryant-Wally Butts college football issue. ; ~S«« 2. The death of Darey Moore. · ~-~ · Which is the most important depends cpoa your par' itculir values. Certainly nothing transcends death (at least ; ^nothing should). · yfc Davey Moore win be in- Tvolved in no more head. ·£lines. Biyant and Butts cer- ; plainly win be in print for ' _£inany weeks. '«M?J Moore's memoiy will be .? respected for years to come. ^for he was indeed one of the ~ great champions of our era. i j However, he no longer will · · be interviewed nor be forced ' f to adhere to strict training i r routines. ; ' Davey Moore no longer · . Is -with us. ! f But back to our initial · * point: The restraint from · editorializing upon either ' issue. ; The reasons are four; '.'fold: I ·; _ · 1. We have spent the 'past month mostly in baseball camps (and therefore not very close to either the box ·Jztg or college football scenes). ·' i We previously had advocated the continuation of · boxing (months before Moore's death). t ". X We truthfully know very little about Bryant or ; Butts (so why blaspheme or defend either man?). · '· '·]" 4. We have sat back and digested the comments of ', columnists and politicians on both issues (and vomited at ' -tie bandwagon tactks of both camps).

This entire black-eye of college football is .; ;too confusing to comment upon at the moment. Anyone * ^outside the deep South who dares try to venture an obser- I 'yation is either an idiot or a prevaricator. I ',' The Davey Moore death Is closer to home. ; .»· Most people, including our good governor, have taken * it upon themsel-ves to try to outlaw boxing. This is not an " ^election year, but such a choice filet as a prize fighting fa- I'ttliiy is the backbone of public sentiment and politics. ft* Little doubt exists that Richard Nixon would have T_cjiarted the same course as Mr. Brown if the Whittier * "graduate had polled more votes in the last gubernatorial ·"ejection. *· What really, though, do men like Brown and Nixon honestly know about sports? One may substitute for the President in throwing out the first ban in an opening game at Washington. D. C, 'while the other win make an appearance at Dodger Stadium or Candlestick Park i! a particularly large crowd is 'anticipated. ^* But does a political position qualify a person as aa Imthority on any sport, whether it be boxing or table leonis? The answer here would have to be a very positive NO. i ·% THIS CORNER does not want to see the end of box- ·', big. If it did, it would similarly have to stump for the eon.;'elusion of into racing, football, baseball and even golf, \ which also have included death as a partner. ' j:_ In the shadow of three major tragedies in less than a j year, this writer realizes that support of boxing will meet I ,wjth less than popular opinion. Yet, despite the screaming t at do-gooders (who always seem to emerge from the wood- f jrork when they think it will be to their advantage), this ( department is against abolishment of the ring sport. ' ST. More effective safeguards certainly should be adopted. jA boy (even a world champion) who shows the slightest s!ga of filtering, or lack of stability or coordination, should be stopped from fighting cither before he gets into the Ting or when his faults are first noticed In a match. »* Equally as important, the crummy element m boxing ^should be eliminated ... and that's where a Brown or i f jfixon can step in. Every sport has its black shadows, but , Tjone has those more prevalent than boxing. J3 BOXKG BASICALLY is a fine sport Collegians and 'service personnel throughout the world have become men Hay so indulging. Properly trained boys, who otherwise I would have been relegated to janitors and latrine keepers Ibave discovered new lives through the medium of boxing. ; Don't kin boxing. Mr. Brown and yoa do-gooders. Reg ;tditt It properly, something which yoa haven't done before. J; Davey Moore's death was tragic, but it shouldn't sig ;nal the end of a sport. If it does, kiss me off on auto racing. J where death beckons at every tarn. · And on football, too, which (at last count) had S6 fa Ulities during the year of 1962!
