Louis Prompts Patterson To Squawk Over Referee BY OSCAR FRALEY NEW YORK. May 23.—iliPP—Floyd Patterson will object to Ruby Goldstein as the third man in the ring in his rematch with heavyweight champion Ingemar Johansson. Joe Louis said today, because the referee "lost control" of their first bout. "Patterson won't allow Goldstein to be the referee," Louis asserted, because he did such a bad job the first time." The former champion, who has been working with Patterson, said that Goldstein made Johansson go to a neutral corner only once during the seven times Patterson was knocked d o wn before the ref- e r e e stopped their bout last American Golfers Make Small Splash In British Amateur The victory enabled the Dodg- PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland, May 23.—W—Only four waterlogged Americans, headed by Tim Holland of Rockville Centre, N. Y., staggered off the rain and wind-swept Portrush Links today \vith first round victories in the British amateur golf- championship. Ten of their fellow countrymen, feeling even colder, wetter and more miserable in defeat, were eliminated by weather-hardened players from the British Isles. Most of the Americans beaten today and those who advanced with byes are stationed in Europe. The United States contingent made its worst start in this tournament since World War II. But there were excuses for Uncle Sam's linksmen. Some of them had never even seen rain as hard 1 as this Irish soaker before. COUNTING players who received first round byes, the Americans had 15 shooters still left in the tournament. None of them, however, is in the class of Deane Beman, the collegian from Silver Spring.

He won a split decision over Japan's Kenji Yonekura in a 15-round bout. It was his twenty-first straight victory, 15 of them by knockouts. Patches under right eye cover cut suffered in the bout. (A.

Johansson; was in so quickly that he struck Patterson behind the ear even before Patterson could turn around. He asserted it was "a foul punch." "If Johansson had been in a neutral corner," Louis charged, "this wouldn't have happened. Floyd would have had a couple more seconds to gather himself' together." The Brown Bomber made a point, in criticizing Goldstein, of the famed "long count" bout between Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney in 1927.

All but one Cincinnati run came on homers, including Gus Bell's two-run poke in the bottom of the twelfth that gave the Reds a life—and another tie, 6 to 6. THE CUBS, who hadn't scored since the first inning, finally cut through reliever Joe Nuxhall's control in the twelfth inning with four hits and two runs, taking a 6 to 4 edge. Nuxhall. who took over in the eighth, had allowed only one Cub to reach base before the troublesome twelfth. It had taken the Reds three homers and eight innings to catch up the first time.

Becerra Manages Split Verdict Over Japan's Yonekura BY JAMES CARY TOKYO. May 23. — -.?— World bantamweight champion Jose Becerra of Mexico retained his title tonight by gaining a narrow, split decision over Japan's Kenji Yonekura in a 15-round bout telecast throughout Japan. A crowd of about 25.000 in the 40.000-seat Korakucn Baseball Stadium saw the hard-hitting Mexican champion chnse the retreating challenger throughout the fight. But the 24-year-old Bc-ccrra. winner of 40 fights by knockouts, never could pin his fleet- footed opponent and set him up> for a knockout. He didn't even score a knockdown. It was Becerra's twenty-first straight victory. 13 of them by knockouts.

Cal., May 23.—wi—It was made clear today that California isn't through paying for the multimillion-dollar Olympic Winter games. How much more it will pay was a matter of- conjecture. Estimates given the joint legislative audit committee ranged from S60.000 to S250.- 000 more needed to pay bills incurred in staging the games at Squaw Valley in February. The Legislature appropriated $9,000.000 for th\e nine- day event, including an emergency $1.000,000 appropriation in January which Olympic officials then said would meet all possisble debts. But H. D. Thoreau. chairman of the games organizing committee, said he expected a deficit of $60,000. That could be taken care of, he said, by selling 560,000 worth of equipment at the games site, or by turning the equipment over to the state beaches and parks division for $60,000 in credit. The state auditor general's staff said the deficit would be more like $97,000. formal protest over the decisi with the Japanese Boxing Commission.

He boarded a plane for 1 home shortly after the fight, i "I can't understand why Yone- j kura's second let him run iround the ring when he has a good left hand." said Maceroni. "Yonekura was the challenger and he should have gone in to get the title if he wanted it." Yonekura lost his chances with his full scale retreating in the last couple of rounds. The Japanese, a 3-2 underdog, lei! through the first three rounds hut from the fourth round on Bccer-a took over. He shook , Yonekura with a solid left hool: | to the chin in the fourth and scored enough with other hard punches to the body and head thereafter to earn the decision. Yonekura gained most of his points with long lefts to the head. Yonekura suffered a slight cut over his right eye. Becerra also had a cut over his right eye. The champion also bled from the nose. Ingo Ready to Go GROSSINGER, N. Y., May 23. _ifi_"I can go 15 rounds right now," said confident Ingemar Johansson today. The world heavyweight chain- pion made the remark from an easy chair. He took the day off from training for his return bout with Floyd Patterson at the Polo Grounds, June 20. He said he felt in shape Most of the talk in the garage area centered around rookie Jim Hurtubise and his record-smashing performance during the final | day of time trials Sunday. The 27-year-old ; otshot from Lennox. Cal., was the first man on the track when qualifications opened at noon Sunday. Hurtu- bisc. who began his lucky day by finding S5 in the parking lot. thrilled a crowd of about 70.000 persons when he drove his lavender-colored roadster around the track at a record - smashing 148.002 miles an hour. THAT RECORD stood for barely a minute as Hurtubise circled the track again, this time at a speed tubise a standing ovation as he roared through the stretch and he responded by taking his third lap at 149.601, just .16 of a second away from the magic 150 m. p. h. lap. His final lap of the 10-mile time trial was 149.402 m. p. h. and his four-lap average was 149.046. Twenty-three of the drivers who made the field last year also made the race, 17 of them at speeds higher than they came up with in 1959. But 20 cars, including the famed Novis, were left sitting in the rain as time ran out. Top drivers who failed to make the race included Paul .Russo, Jack Turner.
