Carpenter Joins The Army LITTLE ROCK Ml — One of the best fullbacks in the University of Arkansas' football history, Lew Carpenter, has called a recess in his gridiron career to serve a hitch in the Army. Carpenter was inducted into the Army here yesterday, and left immediately for Camp Chaffee, near Port Smith, to begin basic training. The 24-year-old back, whose exceptional ball carrying ability results from both speed and power, was a Razorback mainstay in 195051-52.

Stiff Workout Blytheville's Coach Jimmy Fisher put his boys through another stiff workout yesterday afternoon. All boys were on hand but Charles Abbott was not in uniform. He was sidelined with an upset stomach. Fisher said he'felt-the rugged starter would be O.K. for the same, however. "At least," he added, prayerfully, "I hope so." Abbott put on one of his best shows Tuesday night in the Marianna game as he accounted for 17 points. Blytheville won the contest 77-53. In that game Fred Kodges to- talled 24 points'and yesterday afternoon in practice he - was still ringing the bell in the .same fashion. .

Guild Will Not Dissolve When Boxing Shows Fold In NYC By JACK HAND NEW YORK (AP) — Big- time boxing in New York is dead. Final services will be held Jan. 16. The Boxing Guild of New York last night voted unanimously not to dissolve its membership as ordered by Julius Helfand, chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission, who set a Jan. IB deadline. The guile! .said it had the full support of the 16 other guild affiliates. "We've done nothing wrong, said Charlie Johnston, president of the International Boxing Guild, of which the local guild is an affiliate. "We're ready to fight in New York right now. But if he (Helfand) takes our licenses away, we have to go out of town. We'll go anywhere to get fights. None of us is resigning." Blasts TV Promoter! Helfand isn't backing down either, from the tone of his press conference yesterday aft"™™: He blasted the Monday night television' fight promoters who decided to move fc: Baltimore, .ttlKttn Jan. 23, and Jailed one of ihe Bam- more promoters with whom they will work "Frankie C.rbo'3 representative." C»rbo, according to Helfand, Is » notorious police character with * powerful influence to b °"i n stati from the most unimpeachable source that Benny Trot ta (who promotes in Baltimore with his son-in-law Angelo Munafo) Is Carbo's. representative in, the city of Baltimore," said Helfand. "In the last three weeks, previous to this deal (moving the'televised fights from St. Nicholas Arena in New York to Baltimore) Frankie Carbo and Benny Trotta, whose real name is Benny Magliano, met in the city of Baltimore to engineer the deal."' Criminal Association Helfand said he would hold a hearing to see if disciplinary action was necessary against Tex Sullivan and Willie oilzenberg, the St. Nick's promoters. Under New York law, a license can be revoked for persistent association with a known criminal. He said Trott* and Munafo have records of arrests. The two Baltimore promoters weren't available for comment but Nick Trotta, Benny's brother, denied any dealings between his brother and Carbo and added that harn Barber Trade Earn Mors Momy Inroll AW P«y-Twn» Elton Btibw Ctltoft in Msln, Linn "«*»• **•_ Munafo was a liquor licensee in Baltimore, saying, "In Maryland a criminal can't get a license.' Helfand obviously was upset by the fact 'that the Maryland Ath letic Commission, whose chairman J. Marshall Boone had promised to support his fight against thr guild, had let him down. In Mary land, Gov. Theodore R. McKeldin ordered a, "full, .and immediate' investigation of boxing in Marylanc and called on Boone for a "fu! and complete report" on.the Mbn day night transfer.

Ameche Is Only On AP's Alt-Pro Squad - By JOE REICHLER •NEW YORK (AP) — Alan (The Horse) Ameche, bulldriving fullback of the Baltimore 'olts was the only rookie named to the Associated Press 1955 all-pro team,which inclulded hree members each from the National Football League champion Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles, Western Division titleholders. by rolling up 961 yards in his first season, 194 of them in his first game. Although they finished *. half game behind the Rams for divisional honors, the Chicago Bears placed four piayers on the 22-man common practices of fellow AIC contenders. Spokesmen for both Southern | leges and Secondary Schools State of Magnolia and Arkansas Tech of Russellville said their po- ent athletic teams were built in he same manner as those of their iccusers, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks," snapped Tech Athletic Director John Tucker. No Extra Inducements Dr. Dolph Camp, president of Southern State, said his school had not offered extra inducements to athletes, and that the AIC had reused to give him a list of specific ,'iolations allegedly made, by Southern. "They just told me that they )elieve we are violating the rules," said Camp. "We have no ntention o" closing our stadium. If necessary we will find new schools to play." In an official statement, Tech's Board of .Trustees said the Wonder Boys "will continue to schedule Arkansas teams desiring to play Tech" but would line up athletic events with other colleges for the next two years.

"The athletic said program at Tech is being conducted on a level which is comparable to that as practiced by other AIC members." Presidents Signed Statements The action against Tech anc Southern was taken by other AIC members last month, but it didn't come to light untU the Conway Log Cabin Democrat uncovered it yesterday. Presidents of four member colleges, Arkansas State Teachers, Arkansas A&M, Henderson State Teachers and Ouachita, signed a statement charging the other two schools with "not abiding by the rules of the conference." No specific charges were listed in the complaint. The statement announced ttfat all four schools would suspend athletic relations with Tech and Southern effective next July 1. This means that there will be no disruption of the current basketball campaign, in which Southern State is leading. The other schools, The College of the Ozarks and Hendrix College didn't sign the statement, but they joined the four complainants in dropping Tech and Southern from their 1956 football schedules. The AIC's ninth member, Arkansas College of Batesvllle, doesn't compete In football. : Bad Gamble The conference commissioner, Brig. Gen. H. L.'McAlister of Conway,' said he doesn't plan any Im- mediate'action in the controversy, and added: "I'll do what the college presidents want done." Members of the AIC have attempted to operate competitive athletic programs without benefit of subsidization, mainly because most members are too small to gamble their funds on the possibility of good spectator support. McAlister said member schools are forbidden to help athletes except through "work scholarships." There's no limit on the amount of these scholarships a school can offer, he said, but campus jobs assigned to athletes can't pay more than the tasks of other working students. Alumni and other supporters of the .colleges also are barred from aiding players, said McAlister. two platoon squad.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The mythical year the Yankees lost the pennant had nothing -on 1955 when it came to surprising sports experts. .Last year was the year Ben Hogan, Notre Dame, the Yankees and the Bears all were beaten. Those four events were the upsets singled out by 179 sports writ ers in the Associated Press yearend poll with Jack Fleck's triumph over Hogan in the playoff for the National Open golf, championship getting the nod as the "upset of the year." He was unknown to most of th» spectators and sportswriters when he shot a birdie on the 72nd hole at Olympic to tie Hogan, who already was receiving congratulations for .winning. But they knew Fleck the next day when he beat Hogan by three tsrokes in the 18- hole playoff for the title. Irish I/oss A SocKer Fleck's victory was picked as the "upset of the year" by 41 of the writers and broadcasters and Southern California's football victory over Notre Dame by 37. That was a shocker, too. Notre Dariie rffld won eight out of nine games and was regarded as one of the nation's topmost college teams going into that final contest of the season. Southern Calif- : ornia had lost four — three in a row to Minnesota, Stanford and UCLA. But the Trojans Just took command and rolled to a decisive 42-20 victory. The Brooklyn Dodgers' triumph over the Yankees — after losing the first two games — took third place in the upset balloting."Then came the Chicago Cardinals 54-14 shellacking o'f the Bears, a setback that cost the Bears a chance for the National Football League's Western Division title. Sugar Ray Robinson's second round knockout of Bobo Olson to regain the middleweight championship was next in line. Jim Tatum Dye At N. Carolina For Talk Today CHAPEL HILL, N.C.
