Miami of Florida, suffering Its first defeat at Aurburn's hands after six straight victories, fell from sixth place to llth. Purdue also disappeared irom the top 10 after taking a 25-14 licking from Iowa. Thai made room for Iowa, 12th last week, and Navy in the select group at the top.

Moore's One-Man 'Aerial' Show Is Porkers' 'Reliable' Cyclone Fullmer Gets 25th Win Utah Middleweight Makei Big Splash In Eastern Debut Frank Sedgman Blasts Kramer U.S. Net Star It Blamed for Decline In Amateur Tennis MELBOURNE W — Frank Sedgman, who almost slnglehandedly brought the Davis Cup back to Australia, today blamed Jack Kramer for what he termed "a definite decline in world amateur tennis standards." Writing in Ihe Melbourne Sun. Sedgman, the 1D52 Wimbledon champion who now is a touring professional, described Kramer as a "certain wily American gent." who caused amateur tennis to suffer because he was able to buy up the best amateurs. "After each contract has been signed, there always has been a lull among the amateurs until someone else hits the front." said Sedgnian, who currently is play- Ing with Kramer's troupe. "We are in one of those lulls at the moment and It is taking quite a while for the Amateurs to come out of it," he said. "Amateur tennis at the present time lacks that ne ro — a world hero who spurs on all other players to knock off his crown." Sedgman obviously was thinking of the past season when no one player stood out. The major cbijm- plonships of the world were divided among several players with Vic Seixas winning the United States title — the last big one. Mays Red Hot In Cuban League SAN JUAN (fi— Willie Mays, who led the National League in batting last season with a .345 average, is showing signs that he plans to do the same in the Puerto Rlcan Winter League, where he is playing with the Santurce club. The New York Giants' center- fielder sports a .640 average aftei 14. games. He didn't .get his firs' homer until yesterday off Brooklyn's Tom Lasorda. but he leads thf league in triples, 3; doubles 6; runs 18; and total hits, 26.

The Blocking Fool FORT WORTH, Tex. (.ft—Coach es around the Texas Christian Un versity campus are calling soplio more center Joe Williams "th blocking tool."

This year the New Yorkc won 13 of 21 games. In 1953 the took 11 out of 21.

(Courier News I'hoto) By MURRAY BOSE NEW YORK Wi — Undefeated Gene (Cyclone) Fullmer, a. good, tough and aggressive middleweight has an invitation to come back to New York any time as a result of his rousing Eastern and television debut against Jackie La Bua. The strong-legged, 23-year-old middleweight from West Jordan, Utah, made his perfect record 25-0 last night by drubbing the New York prospect at Eastern Parkway Arena for a lopsided 10-round decision. To Fight Castellan! As a result, matchmaker Teddy Brenner signed the Rocky Mountain copper miner for a Dec. 20 tilt with Rocky Castellan!, fourth-ranking 160-pound contender. The only thing the Korean War vet didn't do was floor or knock out the strong-jawed, 22-year-old New Yorker. Jackie, however, is a tough foe to down. He has .been stopped only once. Fullmer weighed 154'A, La Bua 158ft. In the other TV fight of the night at St. Nicholas Arena, Kenny Lane, nf Muskegon, Mich., scored a 10- ound uspet and disputed split de- ision over Orlando Zulueta, fifth- anking lightweight from Cuba. Alt Ix writers at the ringside thought he Cuban, a 1-5 favorite, won it landily. Zulueta weighed 136, Lane .37. Line-Leaping Fullback Got 85 Yards Against Rice Owls FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The undefeated Arkansai Razorbacks, wiry and wily, have changed their offense slightly for almost every game. But there's one play — a one-man aerial act — that always works for yardage.

Only 32 Teams On Unbeaten List NEW YORK (If]— The list of the nation's unbeaten, untied college football teams was down to 32 today after five dropped out of the coveted group over the weekend. Five of the 32 are major schools pnd include the tirst four ranked teams—UCLA. Ohio State. Oklahoma and Arkansas—plus Cincinnati The shrinking group lost one member last Saturday when Miami of I Florida bowed to Auburn 14-13. Big Joe Welch proved last night that he is still quite capable of Handling most any situation in the wrestling ring as he beat out a .decision over rough, tough Eddie Malone one of the two main event bouts at Memorial Auditorium- Welch made quick work of Malone who tried just about every trick in the book to subdue his hated enemy. Welch won the deci slon by capturing the first and third falls and it took him only 18 minutes to do it. In the other half of the double : main, event program. Kathleen i Wimberly took two straight falls j from newcomer Clara Horton in a i bout between two Negro women. 1 The victor copped the first round ' In 12 minutes with a body slam and , a pin and then came back to take the second in 10 minutes with a reverse crab. In the second bout. Welch battled Malone for 11 minutes before capturing the first fall. He did It with body checks and a pin. Malone came back strong to take the second round In five minutes with a body pin but Welch proved too much and wound up the affair by pinning Malone in just two mill' utes of the third and deciding fall ; Joe McCarthy, a professional referee from Nashville, Term., worked both matches and he climaxed the last one by swapping a few blows with Malone. guided muscle named Henry Moore Fullback Moore takes the ball, leaps over the massed linemen, slides down the other side and lands on his head. This hard-headed junior from Little Roclc, made 85 yards—mostly through the air—against Eice last Saturday. Despite that impressive total, Moore had to yield the spotlight to two other stars—Dicky Moegle, Rice's all-America candidate and teammate Ooerge Walker. Not New Play Moore's line-leaping is not new —he's been doing It for seven straight games. Rice players praised Moore as "a better fullback" than Wisconsin's heralded Alan Ameche. "Moore's not as powerful, but he's faster," one Rice player said. Arkansas Coach Bowden Wyatt, an outstanding candidate for coach of the year, uses Moore chiefly on fullback "delay" or "draw" play that is designed to spring Hammerin' Henry loose up the middle. It seldom does. But it is such a constant threat that Porker foes have to keep in close to guard against him. In the meantime, teammate Walker can pass, quick-kick over their heads. Tailback. Walker also has a pet off-tackle slant that works well. Walker, though not exceptionally fast, is Arkansas' "s-nartest" runner. On the off-tackle play, Moore blocking back Preston Carpenter and guard Bud Brooks leads the way. Brooks, an all-America candidate led Walker, to a 38-yard touchdown that clinched the win over Rice A newspaper photo clearly shows Brooks knocking down the last lan—Dicky Moegle. Texas relaxed Us defense agains Moore's up-the-middle smashes anc he got away on an 82-yard touch down jaunt. Switched Offense In Arkansas' 21-20 victory over Baylor, sophomore tailback Buddy Benson of the No. 1 team ra.n with the ball nine times on end sweeps In an H-play drive that carried the porkers to within easy ield goal distance—and Carpenter kicked the three-pointer that won the game. Against Mississippi, the clutch- playing Hogs tried only one leiig )ass—a 66-yard Benson-Carpenter maneuver for the victory tally. Unfortunately, there are no statistics to show how many of Moore's 534 yards rushing—second only to Moegle in the Southwest Conference — have been made through the air. Wyatt switched his single-wing offense slightly against Texas A&M sending Moore off tackle on r handoff instead of through center It worked for "Moore" yardage- 134, to be exact. Stinkers Win Again in Touch League Stanley's Stinkers continued to roll over all opposition with a .48-6 decision over Shelton's Slayers In "Y" high school touch league play at Little Park yesterday afternoon. With Captain Kenneth Stanley doing most of the hurling, Sam Lum, Clarence Cummings and Larry Campbell took turns catching touchdown passes to amass the one- sided score. Also, the Stinkers proved adept at picking off Slayer passes to stymie all scoring efforts by the Shelton cohorts, intercepting a total of six. The only Slayer tally came on th« last play of the game, which was a kick-off following Stanley's last 6 pointer. Herbert Loveless took the kick and breezed 75 yards behind good blocking. But it was too little and too late. The Stinkers puea up a 30-0 lead in the first half and coasted la with their third win In league pliy- Coleman's Cats and Poster's PowU are tied in the league standings wittl a win and a, loss each, while Shelton brings' up the rear with two losses against no wins.
