DECEMBER 8. 19515 Keys Klein Defends r stone State Boxing Stand PHILADELPHIA tfi — Although there has nol been a major boxing bout in Pennsylvania since last May. the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission does not think it has killed the fight game in the Keystone State. Alfred Klein, local member of the three man Pennsylvania commission, said the group hadn't aband- a r£ned hope that the International •loosing Club of New York would j ' decide to promote once again'in Pennsylvania. " •" ' No IBC Fights Kieln admitted, however, the"'IBC was not inclined to stage j its-/;.fights in the 'commonwealth] now.; Asked -'specif ically 'if he thought the commission killed ma- jbrjjboxing in Pennsylvania, Klein said: "Obviously these fights and fighters (major bouts and fighters) are controlled by the IBC and until the IBC decides it wants to come into Pennsylvania and operate under; the new code it isn't 'likely-we'll} have promotions of major size." Klein said that the IBC's chief objection to promoting in Pennsylvania involved the portion of the new state athletic code requiring an ou't-of-state promoter to take a permit' and to join with a local promoter licensed in Pennsylvania to put. on a boxing show. Could Run Afout Law "The IBC is .afraid that the local promoter may in some manner unknown to it run afoul of the Penn-, sylvania law and. be subjected toj suspension.. Then, so.the IBC feels, it would find itself under the same umbrella and be equally 'guilty," Klein said., The commissioner said his group had endeavored to assure the IBC THIRTY-ONE Wake Forest i Back Leading ~ Pass-Catcher Dull Baker-Valdes 'Fight 9 Boosts Archie Moore Stock •^ By JACK HAND CLEVELAND (fP)— Merry Christmas, Rocky Mar-GREENSBORO.

A touch of your toe gets response in a split second. But deposits that form in your car's engine during daily, short-trip driving soon rake the edge off this fine response. In a combustion chamber, for ex- ampie, these deposits fire the gasoline a split second before the piston reaches firing position. When this happens, you don't get a full-power stroke. On spark plugs, they cause short circuits. Your engine, "misses"—more power loss! And high c;ctane gasoline alone can't solve the problem. It takes both top octane and TCP*. TCP, a specially developed Shell additive blended into Shell Premium Gasoline, overcomes the deposits as they form. Because TCP stops pre- firing and spark plug "miss," it gives high octane split-second response. See your Shell Dealer. Get Shell Premium with TCP. It's the most powerful gasoline your car can use!
