TV FIGHT Vaughn in Draw With Beecham WASHINGTON, March 20 IP "I could have penalized him more," declared referee Marty Gallagher today in reply to middleweight Willie Vaughn's protests against last night's rough-tactics ruling that cost Vaughn victory by one point and gave him only a draw with Jimmy Beecham. Their TV 10-rounder at the new capitol arena was their third (and rubber) match within two months; for Vaughn of Los Angeles had outpointed Beecham of Miami Beach on Feb. 4 and Beecham had turned the tables on March 4. Gallagher penalized Vaughn one point for "a low blow and for pushing" in the fourth round, and he went to the two judges and asked them to do the same. As a result. Judge Michael Tardugno wound up with 95 points for each fighter, instead of having Vaughn ahead. That caused the draw, since Gal lagher favored Beecham, 94-92, whereas Judge Harry Volk-man, favored Vaughn, 99-93. Vaughn and his handlers protested that Gallagher had not warned him before inflicting the penalty. But the referee said, "I warned him in the third and I warned him in the fourth, and I told him at the end of the fourth I had penalized him. I could have penalized him more if I'd been real strict." Promoter Goldy Ahearn considered the possibility of a fourth match today; but Vaughn will be sidelined about six weeks while a gash on his left brow heals. It was opened in the second round last night. Vaughn weighed 160 and Beecham 1554. Robert DiGtorglo, executive vice president of the 1060 Olympic Winter Games Organizing Committee, today described yesterday's vote In tha House of Representatives aiainst Immediate considera tion of a bill to authorize the Secretary of Defense to provide federal support for the 1100 Olympic Winter Games as "a procedural setback which in no way affects the ultimata passage of the measure." "It would be unfortunate," DiGiorgio said, "if the House action is interpreted abroad as a repudiation of the Federal Government's overwhelming support of the Winter Garnet because this is not the case. The vote was on an authorization bill not on the appro priation itself It merely sought to determine whether the House desired to suspend its rules and take immediate action " "A two thirds vote was required. The vote was 254 to 137 just 6 votes short of the two third majority. This vote in itself is gratifying because when the measure comet up for action again, only a simple majority will be needed for passage." "The 231 affirmative vote cast would be more than enough to pass the authorization." Congressman Claire Engle in whose district Squaw Valley is located, advised DiGior gio from Washington that con gessional leaders all of whom are supporting a $4,000,000 aDDropriation request which originated with President Eis enhower are now planning to bring up the authorization bill possibly early next week under a special ruling. Favorable action by the House under this procedure would require only a simple majority vote to authorize the Defense Department to proceed. The Senate has already ap proved the authorization bill, as has the House Armed Services Committee. In a separate action the Senate recently approved the appropriation itself. The money would be used for the construction of the Ice Arena central theme building of the Games as a federal project and also provide funds for the assignment of Army and Navy personnel to the Games for communications, avalanche control and other assistance. m - - ' . . til wtomtm PREP OF THE WEEK Vara Croeee.

Dayton Is Favorite In NIT Semi-Final NEW YORK, March 20 Oft-Top ranked Dayton and third-seeded St. Bonaventure are favored to win semi-final games in the National Invitation Basketball Tournament tonight. But the coaches of the underdog teams think the odds are out of line. "I don't think my team will cool off. The momentum ahould keep us going, said Jim Mc-Cafferty of Xavier (Ohio) which takes on St Bonaventure in the second game in Madison Square Garden. And, said Joe Lapchick of St. John's (N.Y.), which goes against Dayton in the opener, The teams are evenly matched." The Flyers (24-3) are rated four point choices over St. John's (18-8) While St. Bonaventure (20-4) is figured three points better than Xavier (17-11). St Bonaventure coach Ed Donovan is worried about Xavier and he has a right to be. The Musketeers from Cincinnati dumped Niagara and then eliminated defending chamDion Bradley to reach the to all bowlers and their I semis. "We're going to have a tough game on our hands," said Donovan. "Xavier does everything and does it well. We're good Machen, Zora Ready to Box Rademacher Pete Rademacher's challenge to the National Boxing Association's No. 1 heavyweight contender was considered today by the No. 2 as well as the No. 1 man. Manager Sid Flaherty taid his No. 1 contender, Eddie Machen, would be willing to box Rademacher but "feels a substantial sum should be guaranteed, Machen having everything to lose and nothing to gain. Machen. who lives at Redding, Calif., fights Zora Folley, ranked No. 2, in San Francisco's Cow Palace April 9. Bill Swift, Folleys manager, thinks his fighter will be No. 1 April 10. "We'd be willing to box Rademacher after the Machen fight and there would be no need for him to put up any guarantee," Swift said from San Jose where his Chandler, Ariz, fighter shows in an exhibition tomorrow. "Rademacher is an interest ing fellow and good copy. He and Folley would probably sell out in San Francisco or Los Angeles. We'd even go to Seattle where he has lots of friends. The only demand Fd make is that we get the bigger percentage. It would be a good fight and interesting for a few rounds." Rademacher, who came from Grandview, Wash., issued the challenge in letters to sports writers throughout the country. He was knocked out in August by Champion Floyd Patterson in his only professional fight and would like to earn another shot at the title.
