These included R. C. Torrance, a Seattle printing company executive active In alumni affairs, and Jim Sutherland, backfield coach fir,ed by Cherberg last faJJ and since hired as head coach by Washington State CoUege. Cherberg sold, "I was fired because Torrance was faced with having to give up this so-called Jund that he operates." Morale Hurt The fund, Cherberg said, was used to pay for trips by football players, vacations for the players' wives, new cars and other purposes. "Team morale," he said, "was hurt considerably because some boys were receiving money from the fund and some were not."

Carolina State Sneaks Past Virginia, 77-76 By ED WILKS The Associated Press Chances are the handful of E a s t e'r n college basketball coaches who want to ax the zone defense could get North Carolina State's Ev Case to sign his name in a big, bold hand right at the top of the petition today. It 'was a tighl zone thrown up by Virginia that bothered N.C. State no end last night and left the nation's fourth-ranked club breathing hard with a scant 77-76 victory. Just a few weeks back, the Wolipack nad rjppea me Virginians 99-54. Other top-ranked clubs, paced by San Francisco's No. 1 Dons and Dayton's No. 2 Flyers, had much less difficulty retaining their prestige. The Dons belted College of the Pacific 77-60 to stretch their major college winning streak to 43 games. Dayton triumphed 86-73 over little Miami (Ohio) but had to c6me from behind to get its 17-1 record. Duke Gets Tough Duke, No. 8 in the rankings, took a firm hold on the Atlantic Coast Conference 'ead by banging Maryland 82-70, while runner-up North Carolina (No. 12) swamped William and Mary 115-63. Southern Methodist, ranked 15th and clamoring for more attention, was an impressive 109-96 winner over Texas as Jim Krebs canned 50 points for a Southwest Conference record. North Carolina State, 17-2 for the season and tied for third in the ACC, had a fit with Virginia's zone, but got the outside shooting it needed from Cliff Hafer, a 6-4 junior, who bagged 26 points. Twenty of them came in the second half when Virginia really put on the pressure. Down 41-37 at the half. Virginia cut N.C. State's lead to one point with 5 minutes remaining. San Francisco, again parlaying its combination of All America Bill Russell and K. C. Jones, barged to a 44-23 lead at the half and never was in trouble. Russell scored 24 points. Dayton, ticketed for the NIT, trailed Miami 38-34 at the half, then took charge quickly after the intermission. Bill Uhl, seven-foot Dayton center, was high with 22 points after just being discharged from the infirmary after a flu attack. Duke had to overcome an 11-0 Maryland lead. Ron Mayer was the big gun with 30. Len Rosenbluth hit 45 points for the second time 'his season to pace North Carolina's hot attack that set a one-game Tarhell record. Krebs hit 20 field goals for SMU while breaking the 49-point mark set by Texas' Slater Martin in 1949 and matched by Texas Christian's Dick O'Neal last season. Boycott of British Boxing Looms After Gavilian Fight By JOHN FAEEOW LONDON (AP) — An American boycott of British boxing loomed today as Kid Gavilan's manager bitterly denounced last night's decision against his fighter as "deplorable." "I am going to see the British Boxing, Board Control about this ridiculous decision," said manager Yamil Chade. "We shall ask them to reverse the referee's verdict. I thought Gavilan won nine rounds with one even." Eleven thousand fans in Har- ringay stadium roared their disapproval last night when young Peter Waterman's hand was lifted in triumph after 10 rounds of bruising action during which Gavilan apparently had livings his own way. The victory extended the Briton's unbeaten record to 32. He has fought one draw. Chade had to be restrained by the stewards when the decision was announced. He tried to get Into the ring to protest. Almost all the newsmen around ringside thought Gavilan had won. The Associated Press card had 6-2-2 for the former welterweight titlehold-t- er from Cuba. Lew Burston, a representative of the International Boxing Club, who regularly books foreign bouts for American lighters, said afterwards "If the British) commission don't do anything about this, no American fighters will come to England in the future." Gavilan himself took the defeat calmly. "I won eight of the 10 rounds," he said. "I was the most, surprised man in the stadium when the referee raised Waterman's hand. But I'm still going to get back my welterweight title." The scorecardof the lone official—Referee Ben Green—was not made public as is the practice in England. Kinda Tough To Eat DENTON, Tex. (If)— A North Texas State College professor went out alone on his first duck hunting trip On his return he called a friend and bragged: "Got my limit in no time. Could have killed 30 more easily." The friend went by to see the ducks and found the professor sitting in the garage plucking five seagulls. Pro Basketball New York 113, Boston 102 Philadelphia 128, Syracuse 95 Patterson's Title Chance By ED CORRIGAN NEW YORK (AP) — While his price goes up, up, up, Floyd Patterson's chances of getting a fight today were going down, down, down. And that means any kind of a figli^not just with heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano. Patterson's manager Cut D'Amato, who has been feuding with the International Boxing Club, announced that he wanted $50,080 to match his man against Tommy (Hurricane) Jackson. Countered Harry Markson, managing director of the IBC: "What promoter can guarantee even * Patterson (admittedly a hot drawing card) £50.000. That amounts to 30 per cent of a $150,000 net gats. Who is drawing that kind of money for a nontitle fight In these days of television?" D'Amato, if he is serious about leading Patterson to a title bout with Marciano, is getting himself more and more entangled on the ropes. Bucking IBC He is trying to buck the IBC, which has strings on virtually the entire heavyweight, division with the exception of Marciano. The champion's manager, Al Weill, broke with the IBC a couple of months back, but even he doesn't want D'Amato. "You've got to earn a heavyweight title fight," said Weill, "What has Patterson been doing? If he wants to get a heavyweight title fight, the public must want him. The only way for him to d9 that is to knock off some names. "Let him fight Jackson. That would prove something and help clear up the situation."
