The charges grew out of the col- e g c basketball scandals w h i c h orokc in 1951 and involved seven players of the 1950 CCNY championship team in the "fixing" of ames. Holman, 56, who with his assistant Harry "Bobby" Sand, 36, has iccn suspended since Nov. 18, 1952, was cleared by a majority report of the three-man board which recommended dismissal of all charges. The trial committee, however, manimously found Sand guilty on .wo counts of conduct unbecoming i teacher. T h e committee recommended hat Holman be reinstated as an associate professor in the college's lygicne department. The committee recommended that Sand be suspended without pay for one year on a retroactive basis and that he be reinstated as an instructor as of Nov. 18, 1953. Gustave G. Rosenberg, chairman of the trial committee, said its re- icrt and recommendations, had Deen sent to the Board of Higher Education which will consider them at a special meeting March 3.

Mason City defeated Webster City 63-53 Wednesday night at Roosevelt Fieldhouse before a slim crowd to move one notch up the tournament ladder. The next question is where the Mohawks will pluy and who will they play? That probably won't be known until after Saturday because most of the AA games come up near the end of the week and the geographical location of the winners has a lot to do with the sub- stale'pattern. End Losing String Mason City's young club had dropped six straight games, three of them lost in the final minutes of play, since their last previous victory--that was over Webster City in an overtime. It look the Mohawks some time to get control of the Wednesday game against the Lynx but once they did the margin remained about the same as the final 10-point edge. Five straight points by Andy Yates gave Webster City an early G-3 lead in the game. Mason City got in front Y-6 when Jack Aeling made a follow shot but then the Mohawks slipped behind again. They finally knotted the count at 11-11 on a basket by Jon Bramhall and then Joe Mentink followed with another fielder to put the Mohawks in front 13-11. They weren't headed the remainder of the game. MerHink Hits 24 Mentink hit a season'-s high for the Mohawks in scoring by making 24 points, 10 of them coming on free throws. The winners pinned Webster City to only two fieldgoals and seven points in the second period and expanded their lead to seven points on a 26-19 halftime score. It was the third quarter which just abou put the clincher on the game. The Mohawks got 21 points in the thirc to finish the period with a 47-36 lead. Once in the last quarter Web ster Cily trimmed the Mason City margin to nine points but tha was as close as the Lynx came to shortening the count and near the end of the game they were trailing by 14. Charles Up Against Legend as Well as Rocky Ma reid no By MURRAY ROSE NEW YORK Wr-Ezzard Charles will make a second try to shatter the ancient boxing legend that "they don't come back" when he f a c e s heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano in a A5-round title fight at Yankee Stadium June 17. No former heavyweight ruler ever has been able to regain the crown and some of the best of them have tried. Jim Corbett was the only ex-champ to get two chances and he was flattened both times by burly Jim Jeffries. Then I guess it's up to Ezzard to break the record," said Tom Tannas, co-manager of the 32-year- old Cincinnati Negro, after the m'alch was closed Wednesday at the International Boxing Club. "We're happy now that Ezzard was passed up by Marciano last September and that Roland La- Starza got the match instead," said Tannas. "Ezzard is much better now than he was last September. "He didn't have confidence then. Those two knockouts over Coley Wallace arid Bob Salterfield have boosted his confidence?' Marciano will collect 40 per cent of all receipts while Charles will receive 20 per cent. | President Jim Norris of the IBC, said it has not been decided yet whether to show the fight on home television or to beam it to theaters.. .',/ · - . . - · .';'' The 29-year-old Marciano wiii put his crq.wn on the block nine months after stowing LaStarza away in li rounds. ; ; The jinx Charles faces is almost as old as the history of modern boxing. In addition to : Charles and Corbett, Jeffries, ;Bob Fitzsirh- mons, Jack Dempscy, Joe Louis and Jersey Joe Wakott all failed 50 Fouls Called There were 50 fouls called in the game, 28 of them on Mason City, and had it not been for the fat third quarter lead the Mohawk^ built up they might have been in trouble. Four Mason City player fouled out in the final period anc Mentink had four fouls. Fouling wasn't too costly fo the Mohawks, however, for whili Webster City made 21 free throw, the Lynx also muffed 24 chances Duane Merrill, 6-5 Webster City center, topped his team in scor ing with 16 points followed by dozen by Don Burton. Play was loose on the part o both clubs with tenseness clear ly evident as each team was try ing to make up for a losing season by copping the district crown Coming in for a strong contribu Lion for the Mohawk victory wa Bramhall, who did some good de fensive rebounding against th rangy Webster City team.

The desperation heave by Paul Scheer gave Wichita a 67-66 victory over Oklahoma- A M, threw the Missouri Valley Conference basketball race into a snarl and beclouded Wichita's status as an NIT entry. The Wheatshockers said when they accepted the NIT bid that they would be obliged to enter the National Collegiate Basketball Championships if they should win the Missouri Valley race. A M Was Ahead At the lime Oklahoma A M was comfortably ahead. Now Wichita has completed its Valley season with an 8-2 mark, while the Aggies are 7-1 and play Tulsa March 2 and St. Louis March 6. One Aggie defeat would force a playoff for the title, two would give the title to Wichita. The NIT tournament s t a r t s March 6. The NIT invited a' second St. Francis team. This time it's the Lorctto, Pa., team with an record. St. Francis of Brooklyn was invited earlier this week.

Bratton, His Purse Held Up, Thinks of Calling It Quits PHILADELPHIA (UP)--Johnn y Bratton of Chicago, his $10,00 purse held up and thinking of re tiring, went on the carpet Thurs day to explain a dismal showing against Johnny Saxton that brough down a shower of boos and pape on his head from an incensei Arena crowd. Pennsylvania Athletic Commissioner George Jones set a hearing for Bratton ^-after the former welterweight champion lost a lopsided 10-round decision to Saxton in a nationally televised bout Wednesday night. Bratton's dismal showing so infuriated the crowd that the 10th round was fought under a rain of newspapers and paper cups that virtually covered the ring floor. The demonstration prompted the 26-year-old Bratton to consider.re- tiring. "I feel like retiring because 1 have passed my heyday and I only like to fight when I'm the boss," Bratton said. "I am talking to.my manager and he might convince me that with proper rest I might continue." The victory for fifth-ranked Saxton of New York projected him to the welterweight title picture probably won him a match with top-ranking Carmen Basilio or Billy Graham.
