2 ortSATAUG.1019A3 21 STRAIGHT NOW Pimentel Eyes Knockout Mar . BY AL WOLF . At the pace he's traveling, almost unbelievable for a bantamweight, Jesus Pimentel could become boxing's: all-time consecutive knockout king, r The tiny Mexican has chloroformed 30 of 34 opponents and will be forking on a string of 21 straight when he squares off against fellow country-Man Jose Lopez in the annual "Fight for Lives" at the Olympic next Friday night. Lopez, by the way, isn't exactly a powder-puff . puncher, either. He has put the deep freeze to 17 opponents in winning 29 . of 30 starts. Pimentel ranks fourth in the .all-time listing of consecutive knockout pugilists, at least according to Nat Fleischer's record book, which is to boxing what -the -Sporting News Is -to baseball. K'. Utah Fighter ' v tn this - time,-a fellow named Lamar . Clark - is credited with 43. 'straight stiffeners. However,- this UiUih heavyweight is utterly disregarded by most folks associated with the , fistic dodge, for the simple reason that most of his victims aren't listed elsewhere in the record book and may have been inno- cent - bystanders or even figments . of some press, agent's imagination.1 ' ' ' -; tHark finally went on TV and" himself was flattened by-one Bart olo Soni. Pete Rademacher followed with another KO of Clark and thus ended another sports myth. Streak Snapped I.7-Blackjack Billy Fox : ranks next with 42. This light heavyweight's streak Jwas stopped by Gus Lesne- vich in a title go. Gus fin-"lshed him off in 10, then cut his course record to "one round in a rematch. The most legitimate v string 27 in a row was , compiled by Henry Arm--etrong, the onetime triple ( champion. Henry knocked - over such well-known guys ? as .Benny Bass, Peter Sar-iron, Chalky Wright, Eddie J Brink, Frank ie Klick and t Wally Hally. It finally took . the late Baby Arizmendi to ; halt Armstrong's, streak " right at the Olympic back in 1938. ' - , Pimentel also has 10 one- round " knockouts to his credit, which ties him with ' ex-heavyweight champ Joe 5 Louis. i ' Lopez would be wise to double" his insurance before next Friday night. Or i else wear an umpire's chest I protector on his back. The padding in that Olympic . ring is pretty thin. . Key to Cup Win : : -The ability to withstand pressure will be the key-i stone to victory in the Da-via Cup Zone meeting be tween Mexico and the ', United States . at the Los Angeles Tennis Club, Aug. .16-17-18.

Leader A fellow who should know what it's all about is Alex Olmedo. A .'"native., of Peru. O'medn led the lT.S. to its last Davis Cup triumph in 19")S. Then a student at USC, Olmedo was. allowed to represent this country because his native Peru didn't have a team.;, ,'" - j In the '33 showdown, Alex defeated Australia's Ashley Cooper and Mai Anderson in singes and teamed with Ham Richardson to capture the doubles over. Anderson and Fraser as America squeaked through, 3-2. Pressure Cited "Pressure is as much a part of tennis a3 hitting the ball," Olmedo maintains. "And in Davis Cup play the pressure is greatest, because you are representing a nation not just a club or yourself. . "You must learn to control yourself. Tennis is a game of power these days, but you can't overlook finesse. It's when things start going wrong that you can tell a great player from a good one. A great player will recovery a good one tends to fall apart." . : Denni3 Ralston and Rafael Osuria,1 who 'followed Olmedo at USC, will, clash in the forthcoming series ' and the outcome doubtlessly will tell the story: They not only were teammates at Troy, but campus buddies. ... . . Can't Predict "I've seen them "play many times and have prac-i ticed with them," says Olmedo, "but I honestly can not predict who'll win.. It will be a contest of power against speed; RalstOii possesses the big serve arid a very fine a 1 I t a r o u n d game. Osuna is quicker probably as quick as any amateur in the world to-, day and he's a fighter. He'll scramble for balls that most other - players wouldn't go after,, and many times he'll get them back. "I think condition may tell the story. They've both been bothered by bad knees, you know." offering. -pointers on their form.' "... ; . " x ' ' . . ;.'

JET r.4 a saVi" "'"V . Engineers know the correct answer is the diesel. Even today, in the jet age, because it delivers more power per pound of fuel it is still the world's most efficient engine. This motor is yours in the luxurious Mercedes-Benz 190D. Because it has no spark plugs, no carburetor and no ignition it seldom needs attention under 200,000 miles. LESS THAN (A PENNY A MILE v ; The 190D sedan recently proved that driving can be an economical pleasure,.
