COURIER Sealed Bids Opened Today To Determine Future of Nashua NEW YORK (AP) — The future of Nashua, one of the greatest horses in American turf history, would well be decided today when sealed bids for the racing stock of the famous Belair Stud are opened. "We will make a definite announcement around 4 p.m. if at aH possible," said John W. Lude- wifl, one of the executors of the es- Big Klu Tops First Basemen NEW YORK (Si - Ted Kluszewski didn't figure to set any fielding records when he started his major league career with Cincinnati eight years ago. Today, however, big 'Klu' is the owner of a shiny new major league mark for first baseman, having led at his position for the fifth straight season. The official National League averages for 1955 disclosed yesterday that Kluszewski made only 8 errors while handling 1482 chances for a .985 slate. Ted has led every season since 1951. . Rounding out the "nil fielding" infield were Willie Jones of Philadelphia, Red Schoendienst of St. Louis and Ernie Banks of Chicago Jones headed the third baseman for the third straight year with .960. Schoendienst topped the second basemen for the fourth time with a .985 while Banks was the best fielding shortstop with .972. Eddie Miksis, a converted m- fielder, was the leading defensive outfielder with .9891. Andy Semnick of Philadelphia paced the catchers with .994. late of William Woodward 'Jr. | "Then again it might be. necessary 1 lo consider the bids at some length before we reach a decision."

Mrs. Titus Haffa of Chicago said she had made a bid for Nashua but declined to say for how much. Various syndicates, including one headed by John W.

Turner Outpoints Labua r But Latter Gains the Most SYRACUSE, N. Y., tf) — OH Turner outpointed Jackie Labua in ID-rounds last night. But it looks as if Labua gained the most from the scrap. For one thing, all the information that could be pieced together from assorted handlers indicated that Labua would meet Gene Fullmer in New York's Madison Square Garden on Jan. 6. Turner had been slated for that bout with Fullmer. But Labua's persistent flicking left jab opened a cut over Turner's right eye and it appeared the cut might keep Turner out ol action for at least a month. Labua stood up well under Turner's familiar Windmill slashing with both hands. But the youngster from East Meadow, N. Y., was unable to cope with Turner's superior ring experience. Turner was on the deck in the fifth round but Referee Joe Palmer ruled it a slip. Palmer scored the fight a draw 4-4-2 and even on points. Judge Ted Shiels had it 5-4-1 and Dick Albino 6-3-1, both in favor of Turner. The Associated Press card favored Turner 6-2-2. The victory made Turner's rec ord read 52 wins, 10 losses and one draw. Labua now stands at 25-8. Although the fight turned out to Woke Forest Talk Nixed by Sauer WACO. Tex., i.fl — "I have not been contacted and I am happy at Baylor," George Sauer, athletic director of Baylor University, said yesterday when questioned about rumors he would be considered for the head coaching job at Wake Forest university. Sauer last week was moved up to athletic director from head head coach. PRE-INVENTORY SALE We Have Reduced Prices On Hundreds Of Items In Our Large Inventory.

Main Street Phone 3-4585 Tatum Says Seniors Determined to Beat Oklahoma at Miami WASHINGTON (AP) — Maryland Football Coach Jim Tatum last night served notice that there are 10 seniors on the Maryland team who have made up their minds to beat Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl Jan. 2. "We are taking a third-rate team down there (Miami) to play a first- rate team, but we are coming back first rate," Tatum said. Big Jim tabbed hi§ undefeated Terrapins "third rate" only in reference to their standing In the final Associated Press poll. Oklahoma was voted the national championship in the poll. The seniors he referred to were beaten by Oklahoma in the 1954 Orange Bowl game 7-0. Looking to next year, Tatum said the 1956 squad'has the "greatest" potential despite the loss of 10 seniors. He predicted they would have "no trouble at all" with the teams they are scheduled to oppose. Attendance Poor Tatum acknowledged he has been accused of promoting each coming year's team in the nine seasons he has been at Maryland, be worthy of any fan's rapt atten^ tlon, only 1,300 braved a snowstorm to personally see the nationally televised scrap. They paid a gross of $3,035. but added, "I sincerely mean It." The unusual aspect of an optW mistlc football coach stems from Jim's desire to attract spectator! to Maryland's rattier poorly attended home games. Sen. Monroney (D-Olcla), a guest at last night's banquet In honor ol the undefeated football and Lacrosse teams, said he noted that one of the University of Maryland Board of Regents memberi had been introduced as "the represent tative of football on the board." "All of our regents at Oklahoma represent football," Monroney said.
