The tickets are priced at $1.80. three defending champions, go after eight titles and a trip to the national tournament in tonight's semi-final and final rounds of the state AAU boxing meet. Tommy Gavin, Cascade 126-pounder; Johnny Cerky, Des Moines, 135 pounds, and Billy Mason, Des Moines, 112 pounds all titlists from a year ago were still very much in the running. The 30 were survivors of 22 fights, 15 of which ended in knockouts, during the first and quarterfinal rounds last night. Gavin had the toughest go, almost losing his crown to Ronnie Schnoebelen of Dubuque In the quarterfinals. The latter repeatedly stunned the champion, who was finally saved by his superior boxing ability. Gavin meets Ray Herrera of Davenport in the semi-finals tonight. The shortest victory was registered by Cerky, who swung a dynamite left and kayoed Clarence Taylor, Knoxville, in 30 seconds. It was the only punch thrown by Cerky, and moved him into the semi-finals opposite Ronald Haight of Oakville. A bye advanced Mason, national junior AAU flyweight champ, into the next-to-last round against Tomios Correa of Des Moines. The bulk of last night's activity was in the 126, 135, 14-7, 160 and 175 pound divisions. In the other weights, the entry list was thin and most contenders advanced on byes. Bob Rossie, three-time winner of the Cedar Rapids Golden Gloves, continued as the 147-pound favorite. He had an easy time in eliminating Merrill Edwards of Knoxville with a first round technical knockout. He meets Tommy Thompson, Des Moines, in tonight's semifinals. The latter knocked out Donald Jackson, Des Moines, in the first round. Gavin appeared to be facing the rockiest path in his title defense. In addition to Herrera, he has Russell Tague, Moline Golden Gloves champion, and Al Trumbo, Des Moines, as possible opponents tonight. Tague meets Trumbo in the lower bracket of the 126-pound division. . . . "TRADE IN n SPECIAL TIRE SALE! POPULAR BRANDS (Factory Seconds) This spring ride on good tires.

(AP) An unbeaten trio of defending champions led a field of 32 of the nation's top collegiate boxers into today's semi-finals of the NCAA boxing tournament. The three scored five decisive triumphs between them in opening and quarter-final matches before 21,000 fans in the University of Wisconsin fieldhouse yesterday. All are favored to repeat as NCAA titleholders and win berths in the U. S. Olympic trials at Boston in June. Middleweight Herb Carlson of Idaho, with two technical knockouts, and Heavyweight Art Saey of Miami (Fla.) with one in his only appearance, paced the threesome. But two-time Champion Charley Davey of Michigan State, a lightning-fast puncher, was almost as impressive in winning two unanimous lightweight decisions. Carlson put away both his opponents, Doug Fleming of Bucknell and Jim Surch of Superior (Wis.) Teachers, midway in the second round of their bouts to run his record to seven victories this year. Saey used only a bit over one minute to lace Gus Raitz of Colgate into submission for his eighth verdict of the year. Davey's decisions, his ninth and tenth this season, were over Al Bourgeois of Louisiana State and Jim Mirag-liotta of Virginia. Two other titlists, Middleweight John Lendenski of Wisconsin and Bantam Gerry Auclair of Syracuse, N. Y., also gained the semifinals. Lendenski had no trouble wtih Julian Le Vine of Syracuse and Auclair advanced on a bye.
