Writer Is Asked to Prove His Charges Against Boxing Sooners' Lines Proving Claims Oklahoma's Two Big Walls Have Checked All Running Stars NORMAN. Okln.. W) — Oklahoma's two big, fast and rugged football linos have been popping rival backfieJd claims by the dozen so far this season. When the Sooner forwards point for an opposition running star he ha.s turned up a dead duck every game. Take Colorado, for instance. Oklahoma beat the Buffaloes 13-6 largely their four star Ij:;<:kfi were held to a total of 92 yards in 3ti dimes, a paltry average of 2.5 yards per try. Hull Hun Wild Until Saturday's game with the Sooners, however, John Bayuk, Prank Bernard!, Carroll Hardy and Homer Jenkins had piled up an impressive 1,177 net yards for 7.8 average over earlier Colorado opponents. Bayuk was second in the nation with 651 yards, Bernard! 10th wiih 448 and Jenkins 11th with 442. Against the Sooners, however, Jenkins rushed two times for 11 yards, Hardy 14 for 12, Bayuk 9 for 30 and Bernard! 11 for 39. Taylor Hopped Corky Taylor, Kansas State's ihifty halfback, carried five times Oklahoma and wound up with a minus three yards. Ronald Chnkscale of Texas Christiai lugged the ball six times for f minus 15. And Paul Larson of California carried 11 times for a minims one, As one admiring Colorado fan put it Saturday, "these guys jusl keeping coming after you in wave: and waves and waves, and eventually you go under to stay."

Chicago Scribe Says Crime Syndicate Controls Sport CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois Athletic Commission haj asked sports writer Jack Mabley of the Chicago News to prove his charges that boxing is controlled by "syndicate criminals.* Rupp Hot Gloomy Over Cage Outlook Livingston Osborne, commission chairman, said he would like Mabley to appear at a special meeting which he plans to call next week. Mabley began a series of articles on boxing yesterday and stated in his first story that "the czar of boxing is Prank Carbo, thug who found managing fighters was more profitable and less hazardous than being triggerman for Murder Inc." IBC Demands Proof "Carbo controls boxing from New York- But Chicago has a vital concern in the racket." Mabley said. The charges brought a demand Irom Truman Gibson, secretary oi the international Boxing Club, that Mabley prove his charges before the Illinois Athletic Commission. Gibson, In a letter to the commission, said Mabley's conclusion that boxing is "a racket" and that "the ezar of boxing is brankie Carbo" are serious allegiations. FBI to Be Present Osborne said he will have representatives from the state's attorney's office .the attorney general's office and from the FBI for the meeting. "Tne reporter will be asked to present information he has pertaining to any crookedness connected with boxing in Illinois," Osborne added, Mabley did not comment immediately on either Gibson or Osborne's remarks. LEXINGTON, Ky. (/R—Kentucky, which long has monopolized Dixie basektball and three times recently carried off the National Collegiate title is embarking on another campaign without its bier guns. Veteran Coach Adolph Rupp observed as practice opened yesterday that "pre-season polls don't figure us to do anything this year but we don't see things quite that gloomy." There was a bit of optimism as he set out to rebuild with two seniors, seven juniors and six sophomores. j Rupp, who has molded many i championship teams since he came ' to Kentucky 24 years ago, feels "we.won't be as strong this winter as we were last year .We never will be that good again and probably nobody else will be either." He called his club last year, that went undefeated in 25 games, "my idea of an ideal team in every respect.".
