lyDONNEUCl'LPEFPEI LATINS FEATURED IN JAN. The first major national boat show of 1959 begins at 6 p. m. Friday at the Great Western exhibit area, 2120 S. Eastern Ave., just off the Santa Ana Freeway at the Atlantic Blvd. turnoff. The show will run daily through Sunday, Jan. 18, with hours of 1 to 10 p. m. This show, sponsored by the Southern California Marine Association, Inc., is definitely a manufacturers' exhibit. Practically every company producing even any part of a boat will be represented in the exhibits, which will cover 200,000 square feet, overflowing from the main buildings to tent annexes. The Los Angeles show differs from the Pacific Coast show, which had a successful run at Picrpoint Landing just a few weeks ago. That exhibition was strictly dealers' undertaking. It was a success -- far more than its sponsors had hoped. The SCMA show also will he a tremendous success because boating is growing so fast there is room for not one or two, but many shows. Proving that is the fact that San Diego recently pulled out of the SCMA group and decided to have its own annual show. It will be held from Jan. 23 through Feb. 1. There is one good reason why the SCMA boat spectac- lar will be so successful. That reason is spelled JOHN E. (JACK) BROWN, who is show chairman and past presiv dent of the SCMA. JACK BROWN Provides the Punch THE SCJIA WAS STRUGGLING along until Jack Brown became president. He had the drive, the ability to organize and he could please the crowd, even though members of that group were listed as rivals in business. Jack is director of sales for the Glasspar Boat Co. Until just recently he also was advertising director and public relations man for the same firm. His duties multiplied so fast that the company had to take part of the load off his back. Jack still remains a most capable public relations director for anything he undertakes. His energy now is .going into the SCJIA show. Jack was promotion manager of the Press-Telegram through the 1946-48 period. Prior to that he had been advertising manager of Dohrmann's. He also served in the USAF as a captain in the 1941-46 period. With Jack as chairman and H. Werner Buck as producer, the SCMA show should top anything attempted in this area. * * * FOR THOSE XOT FAMILIAR with boating, or on the "fringe area" (just wanting a boat), it might be well to explain what the SCMA means to the industry. It is a nonprofit organization pledged to devote its efforts and funds to the promotion of boating in Southern California. It acts as a voice of the boating industry in making known its opinions to governmental bodies charged with drafting new marine laws. Among its other purposes are the following: Promoting and assisting special cruises, races, meetings and events designed to increase general public interest in boating enjoyment. Preparation and distribution of literature on water safety, boating courtesy and other subjects. Werner Buck's connection with this year's show as producer is proof that the public will get more for its admission price than just a look at the boats and accessories. As the man behind the scenes at the annual Sportsmen's Show in Pan Pacific Auditorium, Buck is well versed in the presentation of stage spectacles. Such a feature is promised nightly at the boat show. * * * OUTDOOR PERSONALS-- California cattlemen, realizing that more and more people are seeking recreational areas in this state, have voted to form a committee to study such needs. The group's purpose will be to find what can be done to accommodate rccrcationists on private lands without interfering with the cattlemen's major goal, the raising of beef. This is one step in the right direction. Certainly the cattlemen should take a vigorous interest in the recreational facilities of California. A selfish approach to the subject could result in eventual disaster for them. The California Cattlemen's Association, meeting recently in Santa Rosa, also had these other suggestions for better relations with the public and the Department of Fish and Game: (1) Appointment of a cattleman to the Fish and Game Commission; (2) A continuation of the state's policy for wild- game management; (3) The number of wild burros should be reduced; (5) Trespass laws should be strengthened to afford better protection to posted and fenced private land, and (6) No more wild pigs should be released because of the damage By FRANK HARVEY As usual, Mexico Qty fight- rs dominate the picture at Los ngeles arenas during the lonth, with three top Latins ready signed for f e a t u r e cuts.

Medel, a free-swinging young- ter, hardly figures against lonroe, who has been a con- istent winner the past year. Vasquez has- stopped 19 foes n winning all of his 23 profes- ibnal battles. In his last start t the Olympic Vasquez stopped veteran Armand Savoie D rior to that he flattened Jim- Moser, state featherweight hampion. * * * * IT IS SURPRISING t h a t /asquez wasn't given the cal ver Paulie Armstead to fight Len Mathews in the nationally tu irngiuiun uncnes ana aimira neitis. 'GREATEST PERFORMANCE 1 NBA Picks Moore 'Fighter of Year 1 MILWAUKEE (UPI) -- The National Boxing Association Saturday, named Archie Moore the boxer of the year in 1958 for his victory over Yvon Durelle, 'which it called "one of the greatest performances in ring generalship of the last decade." But while the NBA praised Moore's defense of the light- heavyweight title, it continued Coe, Boswell to Be Honored by N.Y.GolfWrifers NEW YORK (UPD- -Charles Coe, the Oklahoma City oil broker who won his second U.

The award, given annually to the person deemed to have done the most for the sport during the year, will be presented to Coe at a dinner Jan. 27.

Gutierrez, an explosive puncher, earned his non-title bout with Jordan by stopping Pat Man2i and dccisioning Tombstone Smith. Gutierrez defeated Jordan before the new champion became a topnotch attraction. If Gutierrez should repeat, there is a good chance that he will meet the Jordan-Virgj] Akins winner for the title. . * * * Jorgensen Set to Meet British Tourney Winner H O U S T O N UP)--Featherweight Paul Jorgensen wired English promoter Rex King Saturday his agreement to fight the survivor of "a British elim- jination series for the right to |meet champion Hogan (Kid) i Bassey. I Georges Biddle, Bassey's ]manager, last week gave the Nottingham fight promoter the green light on the British elimination series with a verbal agreement that Bassey would meet the winner. King told Ralph Smith, who is handling Jorgensen's bookings, that lie plans to put fom British featherweights in the eliminations, holding the first fight within a month and completing the series by early spring. Smith said earlier plans for Bassey to defend his title against Davey Moore in Los Angeles appeared to be at least temporarily sidetracked.

Cal center Frank Doretti's father viewed the Rose Bowl outcome with mixed emotions. Someone said DorettI, who owns a liquor establishment In Anaheim, offered to supply the Bears all the champagne they could drink IF they won. Doretti Sr., obviously a sly one, hud the safest offer of Ihe year. . . . Pre-game quotes often look ridiculous AFTER the battle. F'r instance, Cal tackle Bill Streshly had said ". . . we're gonna run those guys back to Iowa because we've got greater spirit!" Then, end Jerry Lundgren had declared, "Our Cal team will represent the coast in the Rose Bowl like the fans would want us to." (Ed. Note: Omigawd!) * * * ... HVVPY DAUGHERTV, who piloted the East team to a nifty 26-14 win over the West in S'Frisco's Shrine Came, called Dick Haley .(who scored on an 84-yard burst) by the name of 'Tom Dooley" throughout practice sessions. 'The boy always kept hanging down his head," explained Duffy. . . . Stanford's Jack Curtice, who also was the losing coach in the Shrine Game, told Rose Bowl Idckoff luncheon guests that, despite his bad season, ho had a perfect right to sit at tho head table. "Ves, sir," chuckled Cactus Jack, "I won the award as most courteous coach in the conference hands down. I bowed to all tho rest of them." . . . Cal's Pete Elliott, on why he insists using the split-T: "I don't use this system because of the available material- it happens to be the only one I can teach. If I'd try to teach any other system, I'd make myself look foolish in the eyes of the boys." (Hm-m-m!) . . . By the way, It" you had any pre-game worries about the "pore little" Air Force boys in the Cotton Bowl, I'm sure they've vanished by now. Yet, if you're still sorry for the Airmen, just remember that one of them, touted tackle Brock Strom, completed six seasons of college football! He "propped" at Indiana U. two years!

The 96-year-old Stagg, who won fame as football coach of the Maroons from 1892-1933, has sent in his annual $2 dues to the order of the "C" Club- varsity letter winners of th» University. Membership averages 1,200. The university said Saturday it also has received dues from Stagg's two sons, Amos Jr., who graduated in 1923, and Paul, class of '32. They won football and tennis letters. "Undoubtedly, Amos Alonzo Stagg is the oldest paid up member of any letterman's club in the nation," said Chicago's Athletic Director Walter L. Hass. "Any varsity letter winner automatically belongs to the club. Some pay dues and some don't. Those who do, show they still are interested in athletics at the university. They receive information throughout the year n happenings in the athletic apartment and progress being nade." HYDRA-MATIC AND FORDOMATIC I ng CHECK AID ADJUST ALL COMPLEU "OIL CHANB! A. E.
