90-Hole pectacular Begins EXPECT 15,000 FROM MEXICO Fighters End Workouts By FRANK HARVEY Only Raymundo (Battling) Torres of the four principals on T h u r s d a y night's double world championship f i g h t program boxed Tuesday as the boxers began tapering off for their bouts. Torres held a surprise two-round drill against Dick Kirby at the Alexandria Hotel' gym and concentrated on a body attack. The 18-year-old boxer had asked to hold / the final workout because he felt he needed a little more boxing prior to meeting j u n i o r welterweight champion Carlos Ortiz. Bantamweight champion Jose Becerra of Mexico was in the gym but worked on the bags and shadow boxed for a few rounds merely to loosen up. He also took a brief run in the morning and then retired to his room to rest. Ortiz worked out on the bags at the main street gym for a few rounds and said he felt fit for the 15-rounder. Ex-bantamweight champion Alphonse Halimi of France went to Kenny LaSalle's gym in nearby Santa Monica late in the afternoon for a limbering up session. He took a short run Long Beach, Calif., Wed., Feb. J, I960 --Page C-l BILL SKOWRON 'Kov lo Yankees' !y DAVE LEWIS Sports Edilor Ingo-Arch Scrap May Be a Reality HITTIN' THE HIGH SPOTS: Presence of Jack Kearns, Archie Moore's manager, and Jim Morris in the clubhouse at the recent golf match between Ingemar Johansson and Rocky Marciano in Florida has led to the belief that ancient Arch may get a crack at the Swede this spring. . . . Kearns expressed confidence that the match could be made, declaring "the other one--Johansson's fight with Patterson--is dead. What a mess they made of that promotion" . . . Morris remarked that a Johansson-Moore fight "is a three-million dollar attraction f i g u r i n g t h e gate, radio, theater television and the films. It might e v e n come close to four" ... Inc i d e n t a 1! y, Kearns claims that Moore will be "51 on his next birthday. 1 just found out from a guy that grew up w i t h him" . . . W i t h the addition of Dallas, the I960 NFL season will last 13 weeks. It will begin on its usual starting date, though, the last Sunday in September (25th) . . . However, there will be no open Sunday before the league championship game in December as before. Each team, of course, will have one off date . . . Dallas will receive 36 proven players--three from each club--in a special draft to be held at the next league meet ing in March . . . * * * INCIDENTALLY, THE VOTE to admit Dallas was 11-0 with Walter Wolfner, managing director of (lie Chicago Cardinals, abstaining . . . Reason was that Wolfner did not want expansion u n t i l he could move the Cardinals League rivals have been urging him for several years to make the move when he had a clear field, but he steadfastly refused. Now he may be stuck in Chicago where the Cards perennially are the losingest club in pro football . . . NFL expansion plans call for a 16-team league within three years--Dallas this season, Minneapolis in '61 and Miami and St. Louis in '62 ... The Detroit Lions hiivc refused to give the veteran Jim Martin his release so he can join the L. A. Chargers. They reveal they would be unable to waive him out of the league even if they didn't need him . . . The PGA, which is getting more dictatorial all the time, told sponsors of this week's Palm Springs links classic that the -cs of electric carts used by members of the exclusive os where the event is staged could not be used to follow the players . . . The sponsors' answer: "No carts, no $100.000 tournament" . . . Result: the members will continue using the carts . , . * * * THIS YEAR'S RECORD-BREAKING attendance in the NBA is running 23 per cent over the previous high mark . . . Bulk of the increased fan interest is credited to Wilt (The Stilt) Chamberlain since normal gains in previous seasons have averaged only seven per cent per year . . . Billy Pierce's opinion of the Yankees: "Maris should help them in the outfield, but New York isn't very deep in pitching. But I'd say Bill Skowron is the key man. He has to come back s t r o n g to make them real tough again"... If Leo. Durocher had taken the job of "managing the Cleveland Indians, he had it all set to take Chuck Dressen along as coach. But when Leo muffed the post, Dressen was free to grab the Milwaukee job . . . Mickey Mantle, who already has motel, restaurant and howling alley businesses, has added the presidency of an outboard motorboat firm to his off-season activities . . . * * * MANY READERS WONDER WHY little known golfers often take the lead in PGA tournaments in the first round or two and then fade badly . . . The pros will tell you that these early leaders crack when the big galleries start following them. Touring veterans are used to the big crowds and not bothered as much by them . . . Galleries play a vital part in" all the PGA tourneys. Many golfers play well in the early rounds when there are no galleries following them, but. when the crowds build up they have to be more careful about controlling their shots and the pressure finally gets to them . . . The family of Lamar H u n t , who is backing the Dallas club of the new AFL, is worth over two billion (repeat, billion) dollars. The Hunt oil, natural gas and real estate holdings reportedly turn over $365 million a year. That's a million dollars a day! BABE RUTH AWARD TO SHERRY Larry Sherry of theiworld champion Dodgers w a s named winner of the Babe Ruth Award Tuesday as the "outstanding player of the World Series." The award is made by the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers Assn. of America. The young righthander will receive the award in New York June 27 before the Dodgers' charity game with the Yankees. · Sherry was a unanimous choice. He won two of the four games in which he appeared in the series, and saved the other two. In 12% innings, he allowed only four hits and one run.

Fight fans from Mexico continued to stream into Southern California Tuesday and, based on advance ticket sales, at least 15,000 of the expected crowd will be from Mexico. ·Mexican t o u r agencies have worked up package deals that include transportation, hotel facilities and tickets. Many of the agencies have purchased tickets in blocks of 100 or MEXICO'S TOP entertainers and celebrities, including Cantiflas, Katy Juardo and Maria Felix have reserved seats for the fights. Becerra and Torres nat- ually will be sentimental ' favorites. It is doubtful if Halimi or Ortiz will have much backing when they enter the ring. However, a majority of the experts believes the Latins may be doomed to disappointment in at least one of the title scraps. Although Torres has an impressive knockout record. Ortiz is the favorite at 6-5. Becerra is a 10-7 choice over Halimi. The Becerra-Halimi fight will begin at 8:30, followed by the Torres-Ortiz bout at 10:30. There will be no radio or television coverage. Tickets remain on sale at the Olympic and Coliseum box offices.

Big Purse Could Be 'Littler' By JERRY WYNN PALM SPRINGS--Spectacular, fabulous, colossal--put all these Hollywood adjectives together and you have the $100,000 Palm Springs Desert Golf Classic today through Sunday. Five reasons are: 1. Its purse is equal to the largest amount ever played for in golf history. 2. Its 90-hole, five-round format is the first of its kind in a major PGA event. ,'!. Its $50,000 bonus for a hole-in-one is an unprecedented attraction. 4. Its field of professionals includes every top active player and such infrequent ones as Gary Middlecoff, Jimmy Demaret, Stan Leonard and Syron- Nelson. 5. Its field of amateurs includes such famous personal- ties as Bob Hope, Bing Cros- Wviin's Top Ten 1. Gene Littler 6. Mike Souchdk 2. Art wall 7. Gary A'iddlecoff 3. Ken Venturi 8. Jackie Burke 4.

Well, if you're still not convinced, let's go into a little more detail.

ACTION WILL be over four classy courses in the Palm Springs area, Thunderbird, Tamarisk, Indian Wells and Bermuda Dunes. After switching among them the first four rounds, pro leaders' alone will play the final round at Thunderbird. The $, r )0,000 hole-in-pne prize has been the center! of pre-tournament t a l k , And probably will remain in the spotlight until that brand-of lightning strikes. Since there have been five aces made in four tourneys thus far this year, why not this week? One man who should -be conspicuous in pursuit of the special jackpot as well' as tourney honors is Art Wall, golf's foremost acing artist who boasts an almost unbelievable bag of 35 previous holes-in-one. \ * * * * . · , LAST YEAR'S Mr. Moneybags, Wall showed he is shprp now by finishing third in the San Diego Open last week-. While it's difficult to separate the 10-to-15 top players, three names besides Wall come to mind in analyzing this tournament -- Gene Littler. Ken Venturi, Jimmy De- ' Littler has done exceptionally well playing on desert courses as his three. : Las Vegas and two Phoenix t r i - umphs will attest.
