Joey's Brother Will Watch His Boy Try for a Title Joey and Jimmy Archer By DAVE BURGIN Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK - (NEA)-Every little brother ought to have a big brother like Joey Archer's big brother Jimmy. Jimmy is 31. Joey is 28. Jimmy takes care of things, sees to it details don't get in the way. Joey relaxes, reads his business and finance books or tends to his nine head of Charlai's cattle en his small farm in New Jersey. Jimmy manages his brother's boxing career, and he's sometimes bouncer at Joey's smoky little Irish bar on Manhattan's upper East sjde. "This is the way it's got to be," said Jimmy. "There's go- Ing to be a champion in this family. It's going to be Joey." It can't be Jimmy. He gave up fighting five years ago because, he «ays the tissue over his eyes cut too easily, Which means his opponents, got to pounding that area too often. "Jimmy makes mistakes new | and then," Joey Archer said. "When that happens we talk things out and in the end things always seem to come out O.K. What the hell, we're here, aren't we." .. . In Madison Square Garden July 13, Joey Archer fights for the middleweight championship of the world. His quarry is Emile Griffith, holder of both the world welterweight and middleweight titles. Four months ago Jimmy made a goof and it seemed at me time to be a slip that would prolong or maybe even kill off Joey's chances of a title shot. And Joey and Jimmy had been waiting three years.. Then, Dick Tiger of Nigeria was the middleweight champ. Tiger was set to 'defend against Griffith on April 25, But the brothers Archer were tired of waiting, tired of hoping. Joey had a'46-2 record, including wins over Rubin Carter, Tiger, Denny Moyer, Ray Robinson and Holy Mima to bis last Emite Griffith 15 fights. But during those three years he could not get a fight with Joey Giardello, nor with Tiger, who beat Giardello to regain the title. The Archers were howling. And Griffith, who once complain ed himself that he wasn't getting his due in the welterweight division, was listening. "Call up Joey Archer and tell him I'll fight him," Griffith said. "If he beats me, he can have the fight with Tiger. If he loses, then he'll have to shut up." Jimmy said yes at the drop of the invitation and this brought Joey In from tending his cows for a brotherly conference. If they took it, they reasoned, and beat Griffith, what was to prevent Tiger from finding some other challenger? And what U they lost to Griffith? "We stood oh principle," Joey said. "I wasn't goin gto beg for It any more, and I wasn't going to fight for the sake of a pay Lee, Graham Return Title Bout "You .don't win wrestlitii e>Knp.i&njh.|p» with TOP? »n •(ring and stuff like that,' 1 on half of the world eh«mpi()BBhip tag ((Jim wrestling said this morning.

Through it all, Griffith Was mpressed and decided to give oey his chance after he beat iger. And everybody was ressed with the gate and tele- ision potential. The fight stands to be one of le best matches in recent box- g history. Archer Is a throw- ack to the sterotype of the Irish iddleweight of yesteryear, traight black hair. Flat broken ose. Good left. Sneaky right. lerce pride. Griffith is a rare physical lecimen. Perhaps the harder uncher of the two, he has great leed and he is likewise cagey. Jimmy, the manager, says Joey will fight as he usually does — no prefight plan. Griffith's earner is full of planners, his- comanagers Gil Clancy and Howard Albert. "We take each round as it comes," Jimmy said. "Having Jimmy -in the corner," Joey said, "Is like watching myself fight. We think alike. I can see what I'm doing wrong through his eyes." Like It was In any fight when the two brothers were growing up In the Bronx and later working on the docks, "Griffith will have to beat both of us."

Franks, whose Giants ran second to the Dodgers last year, is one of the coaches of the National League squad. Franks said Friday night that le had been in telephone coa act with Alston and "Walter old me that he would know def- nitely Sunday whether he'll be able to get to the game and told me to start thinking in terms of .tarting lineups, pitching rota- ion and strategy."

Harness Circuit Glamor Event WESTBURY, N.Y. (AP) <~ No mare ever has. won the $100,000 Roosevelt International Trot, one of harness racing's most glamorous events. Armbro Flight of Canada is expected to be the first of her sex to gain that distinction tonight at Roosevelt Raceway. A big rangy 4-year-old with a ground devouring stride, Arm- bro Flight has been beating the boys with regularity and she is favored to do it again in the eighth renewal of the race that j has gained worldwide attention since it was started in 1959. A crowd of close to 50,000 is expected to watch Armbro Flight, with Joe O'Brien in the sulky, try for her 50th victory in her 64th career start against Noble Victory, the U. S. standard bearer, and si* European trotters. The seven previous internationals have drawn an average attendance of 44,254, with a world record mark of 54,861 in 1960 and the second best turnou of 53,279 in 1962. Noble Victory, to be driven b; Stanley Dancer, is the seconc choice for the IVi mile classic due to his victory last week in the American Trotting Championship in 2:31 2-5, time that equalled the world record for the international distance. The 'anadian mare has beaten Noble Victory six times. Roquepine, a 5-year-old French mare who won the $100,000 Prix d'Amerique, is considered the best of the European entries and is the third choice in the morning line. purler ir*yi» ga,tcrf»y, By GEORGE M. PURVIS There's nothing new about duck bjndi being sent in to th| U. S. Fiih and Wildlife Service, by hunters, but when a tag from a dyck banded 12 years ago if sent in, !hat'» news, The mallard hen apparently fe)l for Arkansas, having been banded with No. 557-51173 |p Ar, kansa? County jn. J953 «nd havt ing mH her Waterloo, in the. same county last year-, Dave Donaldson, GtF biologist, banded die hen «n tha, Wrape plantation north of Reyt dell in Arkansas county. He sur. mised that the duck had flown at. least 3,000 miles per year for the last 12 years in its migra* lion between Canada and Ar, kansas. The hen was killed last year by J,.B. Rpgers, ef De» Witt, who returned the band. A mallard drake banded 11 years ago — January 2, 1955, to be exact *- near the same area was kiljed last November at Bay Port, Michigan. Another hunter from Missouri returned a band from a mallard drake banded near Reydel in 1956 and lulled last year. These Incidents are. very unusual, says Donaldson, since most ducks — banded and non- banded -=t seldom Jive more than two to four years because of natural and hunting mortality. In this state the'oldest band returned by a duck hunter was a 14-year-old fine. Arkansas hunters are reminded that 1966-67 licenses went on sale July 1. The license costs residents $3,50, while non-residents may buy. either a small- game license for WO or a big- game for $30. Deer and turkey :annqt be hunted by non-residents with small-game permits. Resident children under 16 are exempt from license requirements, but non-resident hunters of any age must hold a license.
