THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1953 BLYTHEVTIXE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS' Redleg Revolt Against Hornsby Is Denied CINCINNATI (AP) — The general manager, the manager, players and even the trainer insisted today there is no revolt brewing among members of the Cincinnati Recl- legs against Manager Rogers Hornsby. PAGE SEVEN The flood of statements came after the Milwaukee Journal published a story saying Milwaukee Braves' players had been told by some of the Redlegs that Hornsby "may not last two more weeks." The story also declared a Cincinnati baseball writer had said he had heard of a petition being circulated by a player to have Blue Devil Captains DURHAM, N.C. (IP)— Fred Campbell, a junior heavyweight from Swarthmore, Pa., and Richard Dixon, senior from Norfolk, Va., will captain Duke University's'-wrestling and cross-country teams respectively. Campbell, <ilso a member of the varsity football teum, \vas the most consistent winner for,the grappling squad for the past two seasons. Dixon, a distance man with the Blue Devil tracksters, competed with the Harriers for the first time this past winter. Nsw Record Set NEW YORK (fl—When the Yankees and the Browns tangled in their recent "player marathon," 41 men were used by both sides—23 by the New Yorkers. Every man on the Yankee roster except four pitchers— Bill Miller, Johnny -Sain, EWell Blackwell and Vic Raschi—saw service. The old mark of 40 players was .established by the Braves and Pi- Vates in 1940. Hornsby dismissed. General Manager Gabe Paul said, "I do not believe the story" and he added the front office judge- ment would not be influenced by any such petition. Hornsby said, "If the Reds are in" revolt it's news to me." Grady Hatton, the club's player representative, called the story "ridiculous." Third baseman Bobby , Adams termed it "a lot of bunk." Pitcher Howie Judson said "such a report is untrue." First Baseman Ted Kluszewski said he was sure no one was trying to start a Hornsby dismissal movement. Pitcher Denies Report One part of the Journal's story said Hornsby and relief pitcher frank Smith had words on the mound last Monday when Smith threw too late to catch an advancing runner. "That's a lot of baloney," was Smith's statement, Wayne Anderson, the Redleg trainer, also got into the act by asserting, "I positively and truthfully have not heard of any anti- Hornsby movement." One Cincinnati baseball writer said he made no statement about a Hornsby dismissal petition and that he did not believe any of the others had done so. The gruff and outspoken Hornsby said he had taken only" one player to task this season. That was Pitcher Bubba Church who was fined because, Hornsby said, he did not heed a bunt signal. The Redl^gs have been having their troubles all season and have been in last place most of the time for several weeks.

(NEA) Marciano Touted as Greatest One-Punch Fighter in History By MURRAY OLDEKMAN NEA Staff Correspondent CHICAGO — (NEA) — If a guy comes out for a fight, and he's scared, the first good punch is going to knock him down. And in the case of Jersey Joe Walcott, out. Jittery Joe came into the ring like a Pay- chek and went out like Levinsky. - - -- — * KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKY ftABLY TIMES OUTSELLS ALL STRAIGHT WHISKIES AT OR A8OVI ITS PRIM EARLY TIMES DISTILLERY COMPANY • LOUISVILLE 1; KENTUCKY . 86 PROOF Its an axiom in boxing, if you hit the right nerve on the chin with a square sox, the man's going to crumble. Jack Dempsey was once flattened by a 16-ounce glove in sparring when he walked into a flush right. A puff-ball puncher like Bat Battalino floored rugged Billy Petrolle because he located and dissected the nerve. The chances of being knocked out by one punch, like Rocky Marciano kayoed 'Yalcott, are enhanced when the victim suffers from a case of rigor tremis. The resulting rigidity makes him a sucker for a knock- ou t Joe Louis had half of his opponents beaten before they entered ry - Tll!lt m ltself is enigmatic. k and hcav y hitters of boxing have The fact remains that LaStarza and Charles, the only logical contenders in sight, are not exactly noted for reckless bravdo in the ring. It was Charles' timidly,, after being nailed by Walcott in Pittsburgh, that cost him a chance to regain the title in the return The pain was ended, but the memory lingered on. the ring — to wit. Paycheck Levinsky. Now it looks like Marciano is going to go through the same cycle. Harry Matthews, who'd never been hit a solid blow in 10 years, crumbled with the first solid lick the Rock landed. "He was awed by It all," freely admits Manager Jack Hurley, "and maybe licked before he entered the ring. The Idea of fighting in Yankee Stadium scared him." Certainly, Roland LaStarza and Ezzard Charles, sitting practically elbow to elbow 10 rows from ringside at Chicago Stadium, suffered dire thoughts as they saw Rocky wrap up the ancient one with that short right-hand^upercut. "Rocky's thrown harder punches." admits Trainer Charley Goldman. Now, of course, the lerigend's going to grow in proportion to the number of time it's repeated, and Marctano's short uppercut will assume triple dimensions.

There's another thing about Rocky, un- li':e most fellows Ills build — stocky and strong — he's not muscle-bound. His arms are smooth and almost kind of flabby. The muscles don't ripple.

Outfielder Schult sees only occasional service as a pinch runner. Until recently, Casey Stengel did not even bother to take him on road trips. Schult is with the Yankees against the express wishes of Stengel $nd George M. Weiss. Art was asked to accept a release to the minors, but stood on his rights as a service returnee and refused. As a consequence, the Bombers have to carry him through this season. Schult's refusal to go back to the minors does not huvt the Yankees, except in so far as his virtual layoff from competition for a year may impede his development. As a service returnee, he's not included in the 25-playcr limit. Whitey Ford, back from the Army, also is in that cat- j egory. Lefthander Bobby Wieslpr, who recently came back to the Yanks from the Army, consented to join Kansas City. Schult will be 25 on June 20, believes if he ever is going to ;be a big leaguer, it has to be in 1953. He has been offered to other major clubs, as yet with no taker. Before he went into service, he battec .303 for Binghamton of the Eustcn League. Art's insistence on remaining \vitl the Yankees conceivably stems, in part, with his expectancy ol a lift! consecutive World Series and hi eligibility for a full share, eomethin like $5000.

Red Grapplerr Gain Control Of Old Sport By TAMES M. LONG AP Newsfea lures NAPLES — Greco-Roman wrestling has gone off and left the Greeks and Romans behind. The ancient, styled grappling sport of old Olympic days has moved over into the camp of the Swedes and the Russians. They are the muscled huskies who went home from the Helsfnk Olympics, and now from the Naples 1953 world championships, with the laurel leaves. Won Five Titles And most of these—five out of eight world titles-—went to the red lad wrestlers from Russia. The -jther three were taken to Sweden. Hungary, which won two (Greco- /toman championships at Olympics, lad to be content in Naples with iwo second places. Turkey, usually ;t strong contender, got one second place. The Italians and Greeks, once t.rong men of the sport, hardly had » look-in for the major medals Italy ciime off with one second nd a couple of thirds. Greece was inable to get her graplers into the finals. Sweden carried the banner of the west against the rising challenge of the new school of Russian Greco- Roman wrestling. The Swedes hold close to the classic style. But in the powerful .squads from the Soviet Union, Hungary and Romania, there has begun to emerge a new type of coaching. Common Influence All three show common influence, probably from Russian instructors. The rules are the same. They have to be in this classic sport where legs can't be used and all types or punishing he&dlocks and armlocks are ruled out. But the Russian and Hungarian school minimizes defense. The eastern grapplers show a clear pattern of common training in relentless attack. It is wider open, risking more tor the chance of getting throwing holds.
