TEN IRONWOOD DAItY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1965. Boxing World Is Buzzing With Talk Over Another Fiasco Clay Knocks Out Liston in Record 1-Minute Time By MURRAY ROSE Associated Press Sports Writer LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — Heavyweight champion Cassius Clay, knockout conqueror of Sonny Liston in the record time of one minute for a heavyweight title fight, hollered for "the rabbit — Floyd Patterson" today while the boxing world buzzed with talk over another fiasco. A short right hand to the jaw knocked out the aging, former champion for a "12 count" In ? confused and controversial finish that had many of the 4,280 fans in the heavily police-guard°d Central Maine Youth Center yelling "fake" and "fix." But the undefeated Clay, unperturbed over reported threats Dn his life, shouted, "That was my secret — it was a phantom punch. It was lightning and thunder — fast as lightning and booming as thunder from the heavens." "It was a good, right-hand punch," said the unmarked, 31- year-old Liston. "No, I didn't quit. The blow landed on my left cheekbone. I've never been knocked down before. It made me groggy. I got to my knees but fell the second time because r was off balance." "It was a good lick," said Patterson the two-time former heavyweight king and the rabbit Clay wants next in about four months. "He really hit him. I'm more anxious now than ever to meet him." "There was nothing suspicious about it as far as I'm concerned," said George Russo, chairman of the Maine State Boxing Commission. "The only thing is that it ended too soon. The people didn't get their money's worth." Nothing much had happened in the early moments as Clay, hands down, danced and circled from the plodding former champion, out to nail Clay with one punch. Then the 23-year-old Clay caught Liston with the right. The stocky, heavy-set Liston fell on his back in a delayed fall. Sonny rolled over, got to his right knee and then fell on his back again. In the meantime, referee Jersey Joe Walcott, the former heavyweight champion, never counted once. First he tried to steer Clay to a neutral corner. When he got back and peered to the knockdown timekeeper across the ring, Liston had fallen back on the canvas. When Liston arose, Walcott rubbed Liston's glove and looked towards the tlmekeepr again. Then he left the fighters, to go over to the timekeeper. With the referee gone, Clay and Liston started slugging away. By then Walcott had been informed by the timekeeper. Francis McDonough, that he had counted to 12 before Liston got up and that Clay had won on a knockout. Walcott rushed back, separated the fighters, and declared Clay the winner on a knockout. It was then the fans let loose with a chorus of boos. "It would have been different, no confusion if the timekeeper had a microphone so he could be heard," said Walcott. "Walcott was looking at the crowd, not at me," said McDonough. "What was wrong with him?" "Clay hit Liston a right hand," said Walcott. "I was trying to keep the fighter (Clay) away and move him into a neutral corner. I let the timekeeper start the count while I was busy. By the time I got the champion aside I couldn't hear the count. I could see someone trying to shout at me." "It was really a 12-count." said McDonough. "When it got to 12 I clicked the stop-watch. Walcott was supposed to pick up the count when I did. There is no question in my mind that Liston was knocked out." Russo verified that the knockout time was one minute. Thus Clay, now calling himself "king of the ring" as well as "the greatest" broke one of the oldest records in the book. By taking out Liston for the second straight time — this time in 60 seconds — he wiped out the record time of 1:28 for a heavyweight title fight set by Tommy Burns when he beat Jem Roche in Dublin, March 17, 1908. Clay's quick kayo was the Talk about only PROTECTION! '20 p«r 6 moi. buys you: m $25,00 liability * p.d. • $500 mtdlcal • $20,000 uninsured >, motorist HEUIMUETON *..«, 214 E. Aurcr.

(Daily Globe Photo) Kaline Stars as Tigers Rally To Post 7-5 Win Over Chisox DETROIT (AP) — With two last-minute victories to bolster them, the Detroit Tigers returned to Tiger Stadium today for a night battle with the always dangerous New York Yankees. The Tigers collected another come-from-behind win Tuesday night as they clipped the Chicago White Sox 7-5 in a night contest. The win followed a Tiger victory the previous night in which the Detroit club eased past the White Sox 8-3. Al Kaline was the big gun in the Tuesday night Tiger attack. Kaline, back in the lineup after a series of injuries, hit two 12th first-round knockout in a heavyweight title fight. Ironically, it was Walcott who had been involved in a first- round knockout that caused a mighty stir in his fighting time. After he had lost the title to Rocky Marciano in the 13th round in Philadelphia, Sept. 23, 1952, he was knocked out in 2:25 of the first round of the return in Chicago May 15, 1953. Thus the return Clay-Liston fight, which was telecast to 258 outlets in the United States, Canada and Mexico and was beamed overseas by the Early Bird satellite, kicked up almost as much of a storm as their still hotly discussed first fight at Miami Beach 15 months ago. That was the strange fight in which Liston, a prohibitive 7-1 favorite, quit on his stool after the sixth round, claiming an injured left shoulder. Clay had tried to quit after the fourth, claiming he was blinded by liniment on Liston's gloves. This time Liston was only a 65 favorite over Clay, who was almost reserved at the weigh-in Tuesday compared to his hysterical outbursts in Miami. Clay weighed a surprisingly light 206 pounds and Liston 215V4 for the return. Clay who turned pro in 1960 after winning the Olympic light-heavyweight crown, now has a 21-0 record, including 17 knockouts. Liston, winner of 28 straight over a nine-year span until he ran into Clay, now has a 35-3 record, including the two knockout losses. The fight, kicked out of Boston because of the promotional setup, drew 4,280 customers and $201,000 according to Inter-Continental Promotions, Inc. With the television and other rights included, the fighters each probably earned about $600,000. As for the reported threats on his life by avengers of the slain Malcolm X, Clay said: "All that talk, about bombs and guns and people going to kill me, didn't bother me at all. But it had Sonny frozen stiff with fear." More than 200 police from state, county and city, guarded the high school hockey arena. First the building was searched for bombs and later the purses of women spectators were inspected at the one entrance in which the customers were permitted to enter the arena. Clay, as usual, got in the first and last words. Just before leaving the arena, he said, "I told everybody I had a secret but I couldn't reveal it. If I told the people what I was going to do, they wouldn't have come to the fight. "I knew I was going to knock out the Big Bear in the first round I'm just too fast for everyone. My punches just blur." Timber Cuttings Help Save Deer LANSING — Last wint e r 's tree cuttings in and ar o u n d deeryards of northern state forests have enabled these public lands to support an estimat e d 117,000 extra whitetails, the highest number since 1960, the Conservation Department reports. First to benefit from these operations, promoted under the department's system of timber sales, were some 39,000 deer which were rescued from possible starvation by the browse of felled trees. Regrowth of sprouts, seedlings, and other plants triggered by the cuttings are expected to produce enough new food to raise the carrying capacity of the harvested areas by 78,000 animals for the next few years. Based on the department's earlier deer-feeding studies, it is believed that the winter's logging operations produced early $2 million worth of immedi ate and future browse for whitetails. Dwarfing this figure is the estimated $14.4 million of new income which was generated in wages and other costs to harvest the state forest timber and convert it into finished wood products. Timber sale recei p ts added another $180,000 to underwrite future forestry, game, and fish programs on these pub 1 i c lands. In line with the department's program of encouraging a continued level of maxiumum timber and game production, last season's cuttings centered in merchantable stands of pole-size pulpwpod which were ready for harvesting but past their most useful stage for wildlife. Logging operations were carried out with 52,100 acres where appproximately 16 of every 40 acres were actually cut. Totals included 21,500 acres in the Upper Peninsula and 30,600 acres in the northern half of Lo w e r Michigan. triples to lead a 13-hlt Detroit assault. It looked bad for Detroit at the beginning when Chicago collected two runs in the opening inning as Tom McCraw scored on Floyd Robinson's single, and Don Buford tallied when Moose Skowron hit into a force play. But the Tigers surged back in the second inning when Kaline blasted his first triple and then scored as Bill Freehan grounded out. Chicago jumped into a 3-1 lead when Ron Hansen hit a homer, his fifth of the season, into the lower leftfield stands. It made it 4-1 when Pete Ward doubled to center and Skoworon walked. Dan Cater hit a single to score Ward and the Tigers yanked pitcher Dave Wickersham and replaced him with Jack Hamilton. Detroit tied the score at 4-4 by collecting three runs in the fifth on five singles by Don McAuliffe, Ray Oyler, Jake Wood, Don Demeter and Kaline. Then it made it 5-4 in the sixth on back-to-back doubles by Northrup and George Thomas. In the seventh inning, Kaline hit his second triple to score Norm Cash and then came home himself on Freehan's single to left and Detroit led 7-4. The White Sox got their final run in the seventh when Buford scored on a single and an error.

(Daily Globe Photo) Drysdale Stops Cardinals' With Brilliant One-Hitter By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Like the March Hare in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," Don Drysdale was late for a very important date. Once he arrived, though, the St. Louis Cardinals knew it wasn't going to be any tea party. When Drysdale got through with the Cardinals, they hadn't been in a fairy tale but in a nightmare. He stymied them on one hit — a scratch single — and ignited the rally that gave Los Angeles a 2-0 victory Tuesday night. The loss knocked the Cardinals out of their wonderland Anglers Can Win Awards Anglers fishing the Upper Peninsula waters who wish to receive a Masters Angler Award for the fish they catch need only have their local conservation officer weigh the fish, accord i n g to the Marquette Regional Office of the Michigan Department of Conservation.

LOUIS (AP) — Ken Venturi didn't have any trouble with his hands as he shot a practice round at the 1965 U.S. Open site Tuesday but he had plenty of trouble with the Bellerive Country Club course. "I never saw anythijig like it," said the defending U.S. Open champion who has been out of competition for six weeks because of a circulatory ailment which limited the use of his hands. "It's the toughest course I ever played," he continued. Venturi, the San Francisco golfer who won the Open last year at the-Congressional Country Club in Washington, D.C., in a comeback bid, was satisfied with his game at this stage though. "This is the first round since the Masters Tournament at Augusta in April that I have tried to do something with the ball," he said. "My game is beginning to jell." The Bellerive course is the longest, at 7,200 yards, in U.S. Open history and its pocked with water, woods, doglegs, and sand traps. Venturi judged he would have shot 75 or 76 Tuesday if he had not taken several alternate practice shots. Par for the 18- hole course is 70. He said his hands were responding to treatment and he would be "ready to defend my title June 17-20." Jerry Pittman of Rye, N.Y., and Richard Cannon, an amateur from Columbus, Ga., topped Tuesday's qualifying at seven regional sites. Each shot a 139. A total of 71 players qualified Tuesday and joined Monday's 347 qualifiers in advancing to the qualifying second round June 7-8 that will determine the final field of 150 for the U.S. Open at St. Louis June 17-20. Pittman, a 28-year-old native of Oklahoma who became a club pro this spring, posted his 70-69139 at Eastchester, N.Y. Canon, a young infantry officer at Ft. Benning, had rounds of 71-68 at Atlanta. Al Smith of Danville, Ga., put together two 70 rounds for a 140 to lead the qualifying at Burlington, N.C.

They had won seven straight games and 11 of their last 12 and hadn't been shut out this season. The only hit off Drysdale came at the start of the game. Leadoff batter Curt Flood bounced a grounder off the big right-hander's bare hand and beat second-basetnan Jim Lefebvre's throw to first. Only one other Cardinal reached base the rest of the way. Explaining his tardiness for the adventure, Drysdale said: "I was so interested in listening to the Clay-Liston fight that I was two or three minutes late going out to warm up. I had to get ready in a hurry. I considered this an important game. We had to stop the Cards somewhere." St. Louis never got started. After Flood's hit, the 28-year- old veteran retired 14 consecutive batters. Then Dick Groat reached first in the fifth inning when shortstop Dick Tracewski let Groat's grounder go through his legs for an error. The final 13 Cardinals went down in order, In other National League games, Pittsburgh edged Chicago 7-6 in 12 innings, Cincinnati defeated Houston 7-4, Milwaukee trampled San Francisco 141 and Philadelphia whipped New York 10-3. Drysdale, winning his seventh game against three defeats, out- dueled Bob Gibson, who suffered his first setback after eight victories. Two of the six hits off Gibson came in the eighth. Drysdale started the inning with a single, and after Wes Parker walked, Ron Fairly doubled them home. Andre Rodgers singled across Donn Clendenon with the Pirates' winning run in the 12th. Clendenon led off the inning with his fourth single and was sacrificed to second. Don Landrum had given the Cubs a 6-5 lead in the ninth with a two-run double, but Gene Freese scored the tying run on Ted Abernathy's bases - loaded wild pitch. Cincinnati defeated Houston on Tony Perez' three-run homer off Jim Oowens in the ninth. Vada Pinson, who had four hits, slammed a three-run homer in the Reds' fifth. Sammy Ellis, now 7-1, stopped the Astros on five hits. Mack Jones drove in four runs with two homers and a single, backing .Wade Blasingame's five-hitter against the Giants. Jones' second homer triggered a five-run sixth inning against Masanori Murakami. Listen Only 'Partly' Saw Blow; Clay Wants 'The Rabbit' Next By BOB HOOBING Associated Press Sports Writer LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — "Where did that right hand come from?" asked Sonny Liston of the knockout blow. "I only 'partly' saw it." "Where's Floyd Patterson?" screamed still heavyweight champion Cassius Clay. "Where's Floyd Patterson?" "Why did thousands of people work nine months and spend so much money for a fight which lasted only 60 seconds and stunk?," asked an onlooker. That was the night that was at the Central Maine Youth Center Tuesday. It produced a surprise finish to a rematch of a fight that ended with Liston on his 8 Teams Tied in Bessemer Loop STANDINGS W L Anvil i i Cramblit's 1 l Cossi's l i Fiori's 1 l Last East Old 1 1 Last East Young 1 1 Poor Joe's 1 1 White Birch 1 l WMU Defeats MSU by 3-7 KALAMAZOO (AP) — Sophomore left-hander Jim Johnson of Western Michigan beat Michigan State 3-1 Tuesday on a two-hitter for his sixth straight victory and a perfect season. The game concluded the season for both teams. Johnny Sluka, Bronco second baseman, drove in all Western's runs while getting three of his team's five hits off eight MSU pitchers. He singled home two runs and drove in a third on a sacrifice fly. Coach Danny Litwhiler used all his MSU batterymen in giving everybody a chance in the finale. His son, Dick, MSU's fifth pitcher, was the loser for allowing the winning run in the fifth. Western, runner-up in the Mid - American Conference at 9-1, finished the season with an over-all mark of 16-6. Ohio University, Mid - American champion with ll-l, suffered its only defeat from Western. MSU finished 28-11. Every team in the Bessemer Slow-Pitch Softball League sports the same 1-1 season record, thus splitting the top spot in the league standings into eight pieces. The Anvil Hilltoppers displayed some of their power as they bombed 11 home runs off of Cramblit's pitching and won by a 27-6 tally. Doug Syreini led the Anvil attack with five hits, including three home runs. D. Londo and R. Hyman had two home runs each for the winners and O'Donahue was the winning pitcher. The Last East Old Timers got on the winning trail by downing Cossi's 13-7. D. Gustafson was the big gun for the Old Timers with five hits and L. Holappa and B. Pallin added to the barrage with three hits apiece. For Cossie's it was R. Billie leading the losers with a pair of triples and a double. L. Holappa pitched the win and D. Mazanec was tagged with the loss. The White Birch V/ildcats displayed some of last year's championship form as they bombed four homers off Last East Young pitcher B. Evans to chalk up their first win of the season 16-10. Besides pitch ing and getting his first win, Al Saily led the attack with two homers. Rudy Massi had three for five at the plate for the losers. Poor Joe's Mets tagged Fiori's pitcher C. Negri for 11 runs early in the game and then played some fine defensive ball to win the affair 14-9. Fiori's threatened a final comeback in the ninth inning but a fine backhand stop by Ed Richards ended the game for the winning pitcher.

"It was a sneak punch — • right hand I only 'partly' saw," said an unruffled Liston. "I didn't want to jump right up. The referee never started the count. I didn't know when to get up. "When I did get up I thought the fight was still on. Didn't you see us start to fight again? When Walcott stepped in I thought the bell had rung. "No, I didn't quit," Liston said, barely audible. "The blow landed on my left cheekbone. Yes, it was a fair punch. . "It made me groggy. But I have been hit harder. "The lead right surprised me. "I've never been knocked down before. I got up to my knees but fell the second time because I was off balance. "I will fight again. I'm in a position now where I can't squawk. I have to fight anybody." Clay has been mentioning Patterson, two-time former champion, as his next opponent since the fight was rescheduled last winter. He shouted it all over the closed-circuit television circuit the night Patterson beat George Chuvalo. The moment the knockout was official Tuesday night Clay came to the ring apron and began to ask for Floyd, the man he calls "The Rabbit." Afterward in the dressing- room interview Clay said: "Just as soon as we sign the contracts I'll give The Rabbit a chance." Clay called the knockout blow his anchor punch, something he had worked out in secret with a camp follower, former movie comedian Step'n'Fetchit, who borrowed it from former champion Jack Johnson. Clay actually had brought up I the anchor punch in his pre! hernia rantings last October between workouts at the Boston | Arena. : "It's a punch you can't see," j Clay said.
