PAGE TON BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1981 TALE OF THE TAPE Marciano, Cut by Jibes, Never Looked So Good By HARRY GRAYSON NBA Sports Editor NEW YORK — (NBA) — If Archie Moore attempts to take out Rocky Marciano early, you're going to see a cyclonic start at Yankee Stadium, Sept. 20. Moore figures to be far past his peak at an admitted 38, but is such an extraordinary character that anything the gypsy does will not surprise a lot of people.

Behind Brooklyn 95 Theoretically, the erosion is supposed to have set in on Marciano, too, at 31—physically, spiritually and men tally- degree. although not to any great Under normal circumstances, The Rock might have had to fight oft complacency in the sixth defense of the title, the second this year. Building the fight, in what, probably has been the finest one-man ballyhoo campaign in history, Moore took that problem off the champion's hands. It ie extremely difficult for the soft-spoken Marciano to put the rap on anybody, especially an opponent, he resects, but there isn't any question that he has been riled by Moore's jibes. "I'll be lookin* to hurt him," he remarked after a workout at Grossinger, in which he never looked so good. » » • It'i all right for MarciBiio to say that he hasn't minded all the things Moore has said about him—every-. thing up to disecting the Block Bus- ! ter. "What's the difference," lie tells, the ordinary interviewer, "as long I as it helps the gate?" But those closest to Marciano know he is seething inwardly. It was when his old pals of the Brockton street corner asked, "Yuh ain't ascared to fight this guy, are you, Rock?" that Marciano would have signed for the match even had another challenger been more acceptable to Al Weill. "I want this guy bad," The Rock tells intimates. Circling among those en lied into the room while Marciano is being rubbed—they, are the ones he likes to talk to—you hear other little remarks dropped by the doe-eyed Italian which give you a good idea of his frame of mind. Such as: "This guy is talking himself into the. waist, licking of his lite. People have to eat words. I'd like to catch him with his mouth open." When Tony Galehto remarked that Marciano should talk more for business purposes, The Rock observed, "Those who talk the most usually do the least. Galento didn't get very for. Moore is another Galento with less talent for words." Marciano makes no effort to disguise his bitter disappointment at not being accepted as a popular champion. This principally is due to incredibly stupid public relations which sees a heavyweight champion of the world, with every requisite for acclaim, carefully screened from newspapermen while in training and hidden away between fights. Moore, despite his ancientness, is the first challenger who has not had to be built up for Marciano. The old bloke behind the goatee is given an excellent chance by not a few, and this pleases The Rock no end. So Marciano sees Archie Moore as the medium through which he can accomplish two things—shut up a character who charge he was being avoided and gain belated recognition. Chatting with Rocky Marciano, you feel as though he would like to say: "I'll stick this old guy up into the cheaper seats and then maybe somebody will recognize me on the street." Ward Credits Nelson's Help By ROBERT MOORE RICHMOND, Va. (VPj— Handsome Harvie Ward lingered in the club- bouse shadows for one last glimpse of the James River course where he gained his "greatest victory in golf." Dusk had replaced the hot afternoon sunshine. The last of the gallery was thinning rapidly. Just an hour earlier, Ward had mauled William Hyndman m of Philadelphia 9 and 8 for the U.S. amateur championship. Ward, who now has won every major amateur title, was mumbling something about one of the old masters of golf, Byron Nelson. Byron Helped Him "Byron helped me improve my game so much," said Ward, Who had failed in eight previgus attempts to prove himself king of American amateurs. "Byron showed me the importance of holding onto the club with the left hand when playing- iron shots." The San Francisco automobile salesman said there has been no basic change in his sn me since he won the British Amateur crown in 1952 but that he's a vastly improved golfer now.

Kroll was four strokes behind Ford, the leader, as. yesterday's final round started but shot a one- under par 67 while Ford scrambled for, a 71 that left them knotted at 273 each for the 72 holes. Kroll, from Bethesda, Md., and Ford, who plays out of Kiamesha Lake, N. Y., took a .10 minute break and then teed off for the short sudden death match. Kroll's drive was 230 yards and Ford's was 215 yards. Their second shots left Kroll 10 feet closer and after Ford's 40 foot putt was three feet short of the cup, Kr^ll ended the match. Ford won $2,200.. Boxing Briefs Rocky Rides 3-1 Favorite in NY Yanks Capitalize On Indian Tailspin By ORLO ROBERTSON * The Associated Press The New York Yankees have the Cleveland Indians on the floor and like the Bronx Bombers of old they are moving in for the kill. For years the Yankees have had a reputation for taking a mile once they were given an inch. And that's the way Casey Stengel's 1955 edition has been performing the past week. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano is a 3-1 favorite to whip light heavyweight boss Archie Moore in a 15-round title fight at Yankee Stadium tomorrow night. Home television fans seldom get a chance to see the undefeated Marciano in title action and this one won't be telecast to the homes either. It will be shown over a closed circuit to 128 theaters in 92 cities coast to coast. The fight will be radio broadcast, (ABC) however. There will be the usual three network fight telecasts during the week for home fans. Tonight, Jimmy Slade, who holds victories over Don Cockell and Hurricane Jackson, meets Archie McBride of Trenton, N. J., in a heavyweight 10-rounder at New York's St. Nicholas Arena. On Wednesday middleweight contender Bobby Dykes of Miami, pla., seeks his eighth straight van of the year at the expense of George Johnston, Trenton, N. J., in a 10- rounder at Miami Beach, Fla. Ralph (Tiger) Jones, Yonkers, N. Y., faces Denmark's Chris Christensen in a middleweight 10-rounder at Cleveland Friday night. A week ago the Yanks trailed the Indians by 1& games and apparently had all the worst or the scheduled. Today 'they are roaring along two games in front. The Schedule favors them with the Tribe in the most disastrous trailspin of the year. They have seven to play to only five for Cleveland. Both teams are on the road until the campaign ends Sunday. Yesterday the Yankees thumped the Ked Sox 3-2 for their fifth straight victory. Thee Indians bowed to the Detroit Tigers 10.3, their fourth straight loss. The Chicago White Sox all but slid out of the picture, losing 8-1 to sixth-place Kansas City. The Sox need four victories in their remaining five games to tie for the flag even if the Yanks win only one. Mitchell Praises Porks' High Spirits By ADKEN COOPER FAYETTEV1LLE, Ark. (AP) — University of Arkansas Coach Jack Mitchell believes his Razorbacks got the kind of mental conditioning that they needed in their 21-to-6 triumph Saturday over a vastly improved Tulsa team. No player on the New York Giants roster was bora in New York City. Only one, Hank Thompson, now makes his home there. Lone Eagle Is Booked For Mat Show Chief Lone Eagle, the wrestling Cherokee, and his wife. Princess Juanita, return to the American Le- >ioirs wrestling program tonight to \ take part in the tag match main 1 event. 1 Lone Eagle has been booked to j •eplace Charley Laye in the fca-1 ture bout. He will team with Ted | Lafell against Prince Omar and John Silvers. Chief Lone Eagle is one of the most popular wrestlers to appear here in several years. He and his wife have toured the main circuits of the nation and are regular performers in televised bouts originating in Chicago and St. Louis. Princess Juanita assists her husband in a rather unofficial way. She sits at his corner constantly and spurs him on with frequent beats on the Indian drums. • Tonight's bout is expected to be a wild affair. The mere appearance of Silvers almost guarantees that. Silvers, a relatively newcomer to Blytheville, has appeared here for three straight weeks and in each bout he has proved to be n tough competitor. Two one-fall preliminary bouts are also on the card. In the first Lafell will take on Amar and in the second Chief Lone Eagle will meet Silvers. The Porkers gained confidence in the. split-T attack — even though they elected to play conservative, play-for-the-break style that won them the Southwest . Conference championship in 1954. Spirit Great Mitchell was happy with the spirit of the Hogs —- a factor that apparently had worried him before the first game. The Razorback Stadium crowd — largest for an opening game at 18.000 — watched each side get a touchdown primarily because of weak, wind-shortened punts. The Porkers got their other two TD's in two spectacular maneuvers that were typical of 1954: a 64-yard run by fullback Henry Moore and a 34- yard pass play immediately following a Tuisa fumble.» Quarterback George Walker showed as much confidence in running the split-T as he did last year in operating the single wing, although Arkansas didn't try much of the T tricks that were used so ef- fectively by Tulsa in the first half. Moore's touchdown in the second period that put Arkansas ahead to stay and the clinching 34-yard TD pass from Walker to halfback Ronnie Underwood in the fourth quarter both were made .-possible by Walker's sleight-of-hand. Defense Adjusted Mitchell made some minor adjustments in his defense after a halfUme talk and the Razorbacks stopped the Tulsnns in the last hall. The major change was moving the ends in closer to help stop the inside plays. The new Arkansas coach was pleased with the spirit of the Porkers. He indicated that the Razorbacks had more fire than he had expected. "Our boys were bug-eyed," he said. "Nobody wanted to sit down. We could barely keep them off the field. You'd have thought they were pjaying Notre Dame. Man how I liked that." Bob Grim was the big man in the Yanks' triumph. He replaced fireballer Bob Turlcy in the third with the score tied 2-2, two runners on base and nobbed out. He promptly shut the door in the faces of the Red Sox and pitched hitless ball the remainder of the way. Only two got on base, Billy Klaus via Billy Martin's error and Ted Williams, who walked. The defeat of the Indians was ironic in that it came at the hands of 20-year-old Bob Miller, beaten by the Yar'*s last week. At that time there was considerable coin- Bucky Harris used an , untested youngster in a game involving the pennant. Bob Miller hurled six-hit ball for the Indians before he tired after seven innings and was relieved by Dick Hurlowe. Pinch hitter Hank only damaging blow off Miller. By that time the Tigers were out in front, chiefly because of a six-run j sixth inning at the expense of Mike Garcia and Ray Narleski. Braves Clinch Second Gus Zernial's bases-loaded homer off Chicago's Dick Donovan spiked I the White Sox early in the game and tly;y never were able to do anything with the offerings of Art Ditmar. , The Baltimore Orioles pulled out of the cellar into a seventh-place tie with the Senators as they beat Washington 9-0 behind Jim Wilson. The Milwaukee Braves clinched second place in the National League with an n-inning 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. But the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies remained in a battle for third place. The Giants droped a 7-5 decision to the Dodgers while the Phillies split with the Pittsburgh Pirates, losing the first 5-2 and winning the nightcap 2-1. That left the Giants a game In front of the Phils. The Cincinnati Redlegs downed the Chicago Cubs 12-5. The Senior National AAU Men's Outdoor Water Polo championship will be held in Chicago Aug. 24-27.
