Good TV Bout Tonight: Boyd Meets Lausse CHICAGO (fl — Eduardo Lausse powerful left-hook specialist from South America, is a 2-1 favorite to defeat rangy Bobby Boyd, former Chicago butcher apprentice, tonight in his climb to a middleweight title shot. Lausse, 28-year-old mechanic's son, will put an undefeated string of 32 bouts on the line in the nationally televised 10 rounder at Chicago stadium (9 p.m.CST.ABC) The scrap may not go the distance, for each has impressive knockout records. Lausse. world's third-ranked 160-pound contender, has scored 49 kayoes. A victory over Boyd would put him at the head of the line for a crack at the Bobo Olson - Sugar Ray Robinson winner probably in a summer outdoor show at New York. His overall record Is 61-63-3. Boyd, 22, like Lausse, is predicting a knockout which would give the No. 8 middleweight contender 22 knockouts in a record of 37-6-2.

US, Canada Talk About Pro Players PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Two ends get together today to talk about the middle, in an effort to settle a U. S.-Canadian hassle over pro football players. • The ends are Commissioner Bert Bell of the National Football League and Ralph Cooper, representing our northern neighbor's two big pro loops. The middle consists of U. S. college players, who for some time have been in the enviable position of being able to play off ends against each other for the highest salary. Both leagues accuse each other of persuading players to break contracts and options held by the other. Several of the disputes have wound up in the courts and many have been marked by bot words. Bell suggested the meeting, to be held in a downtown hotel with newspapermen on hand to record the proceedings. Cooper agreed willingly to talt things over.
