2 m-SAT.. sept, is, 1954 HYLAND FLING By DICK HYLAND With preseason football practice now behind us and the local season officially opened last evening with the Trojan-Cougar fracas, let us'peek into the crystal ball for a report on Pacific Coast football this fall. What are we going to do to pach other? Almost equally important, what are the other guys going to do to us? Year after year this sentence can be written: The California colleges will field strong teams arid one team appears to be strong in the Northwest. Not. more than once in a decade does that northern team prove to be strong. This season Oregon i hailed as the "dark horse" of the conference. This is quite a compliment to a squad that could score but six points against Stanford, UCLA, Washington State, Washington, California and Oregon State last season. On the other hand, the Ducks had a better record against California learns last season than any other Northwest team; they tied the Bears and beat the Trojans. Red Sanders, never one to underestimate an opponent, says that so far as be is concerned he does not care what the records show, ihaU Northwest learns are tough to play in the Northwest. We can leave Oregon with that thought. Because Stanford is Stanford and Chuck Taylor is coaching the Indians are tough to tag. They do not belong on the field with California, UCLA or SC this year but they cannot be counted out at this time of the season. We will have the measure of both Stanford and Oregon this coming week, when they tangle with each other at "Portland. Stanford an come back from a licking by the Ducks. Oregon is through for the season if ;the Taylor Tots take them. One of the puzzles ofjne preseason public prints lias been, to me, the lofty spot given the Golden Bears of Berkeley. What, makes them so feared? Paul Larson? Pappy's deep freeze? The Bear rooting section? Jim Sutherland's new offense? Larson, of course, is a couple of hand fulls on a foot BEARS, SOONERS Continued from First Page cut loose with a strong passing attack in their victory quest. Being a split-T team, Oklahoma uses the pass sparingly. Instead it depends on quick-opening plays for its light, fast backfield. The game also will shed some light on the question of how much the Bears will miss Ronnie Knox, sophomore quarterback .sensation whose father withdrew him from school and enrolled him at. UCLA after tiff with the California coaching staff. Bears, Sooners IV Line-ups Here are the squad rosters for today's nationally televised football game between Oklahoma and California at Berkeley.

True, the Bears hav Matt Hazeltine in front of Larson and he is a one-man gang. He, toOj however, puts his panties on one leg at a time and there are several ' other one-man gangs coming up across the scrimmage line - from the highly rated Golden. Bears. That brings us down to the Bruins arid Trojans .and as for the last several seasons they are the toughest pair in the conference. Guessing what will happen when they meet is a sure way of seeking trouble because a couple of injuries between now and Nov. 20 can upset any dope bucket. The Trojans, however, are going to have to come along almighty fast to rate evenly with the Bruins going into their game. ' Intersect ibnally Well, the local teams will do all right but the rest of the ronference appears to be facing foul weather the next few months. The Bruins should take Kansas and have a chance to beat Maryland despite the Terps laying off next week to prepare for the Bruins. The Trojans can take Pitt, Northwestern and TOU if they get up a head of steam and really want to play some footlStll. Notre Dame is always hard to handle. North of here the Bears face lickings from Oklahoma and Ohio State, that , last a maybe; Stanford is 'weaker than Illinois and no better than a standoff against Annapolis; Oregon State should drop a pair to Nebraska and Minnesota; Washington can win only via upsets over Michigan and Baylor, and the Cougars cannot be expected to take either Michigan State or Texas. Some doubt exists over, whether Oklahoma will have the services of its star split-T quarterback, Gene Calame. The 17.1-pound senior injured a rib in practice this week. California will field a fast backfield, led by Paul Larson, the nation's total yardage leader last year, behind a line that will average 210 pounds. This compares with the Sooner forwards who scale in at a 200-pound average. AVith Larson, the first-string T quarterback, will be Tommy Kramer at full; .lohnny Wilson fit left, half and Steve Dimeff at right half. It wouldn't surprise anyone if Larson, a great optional pass or run star, also saw action at left half with either Mike Casey or Sam Williams filling in at quarter. Probable Rackfielri If the Sooners' star quarterback fails to recover from his injuries sufficiently to play, Pat O'Neal, antoher veteran, will get the call The other probable starters in the Oklahoma back-field are Buddy Leake and Bob llerndon at the halfback spots and Robert Burris at full. All are veterans. With the exception of Kdmon Gray, 194-pound larkle, Oklahoma will field a veteran starting line. The team's starting ends, Carl Allison and Max Boydston, are considered to he two of the best in the school's history.

Charles admitted his mistake was to abandon the punching style he used against Marciano in their first encounter. '1 tried to do what he did to me I tried to knock him out." Had Senses At the knockout, Charles conceded he was groggy "but I still had my senses. My glove weren't "touching the floor. I could have gone on fighting. "If they had let me, I think in two more rounds I would have beat him. He was cut up pretty bad." Charles refused to criticize the champion for what some observers thought were low blows, or for" hitting after the bell. "Guess that's just the way he fights,'' said Kz. "He's strong. I made the mistake of stepping hack in the eighth round and 1 got hit with something I don't know what it wtis. Couldn't et Si "I hit him some good left hooks, though. I opened his nose with a left hook and I cut his eye with one.! don't, think he was as tough this time as he was the other time. "I just couldn't get mvself set." To the direct question as to whether he would continue fighting, Charles replied: "Yes, certainly. 1 think Ml rest for about two weeks and then go back into training." "Wasn't Hurt, "To many at the ringside It seemed as if Charles could easily have gotten to his feet in the eighth round before the count of 10 was reached, and he conceded he could have moved faster, "I was slow getting up, but T 'wasn't really hurt," he said. ".Toe Walcott really had me down for the count. I was out then." 'Bama Handed 7-2 Loss by Southern MONTGOMERY", Ala., Sept.: 17 (P) Mississippi Southern humbled the once-mighty Crimson Tide of Alabama again here tonight with a 7-2 victory and the second opening-game upset in two years. Southern scored on 'Bama early in the game and held Coach Red Drew's puzzled warriors scoreless until the final quarter. It was a year ago almos to the night when Southern, not even rated an outside chance, gave the Tide a 25-19 lacing. Drew vowed it wouldn't happen again, but the Southerners pulled it again the next time out. MLuiksloDt Southern .... 7 0 0 07 Alabama 0 0 (I 22 Mississippi Southern scoring: TD - Th-rla!

PITTSBURGH, Sept, 17 OP) Two California glamour girls, willowy Mickey Wright, of La .Italia and huttnn-cute Barbara Romack of Sacramento, launched a new youth movement in golf today when they crashed imo the finals of the Women's National Am a t e u r Championship without loss of a hole. Miss Wright, 19. Stanford University sophomore, smothered Defending Champion Mary Lena Faulk of Thomas-ville, Ga., 5 and 4. Miss Romack, 21, crushed Mrs. Marjorie Lindsay McMillen of Decalur, 111., five times Illinois champion, 7 and 6. One-sided Wins They were the most one-sided semifinal triumphs in the history of this 59-year-old event. The Pacific. Coast rivals, who have met twice before with Miss Romack the victor pach time, will clash in the ofi-hole title round tomorrow; at, the Allegheny Country Club. ESCOBAR FAVORED TO BEAT RAMPONI . BV CAL WHORTOX After three weeks of mediocre fistic, entertainment. Hollywood Legion Stadium bounces back tonight, with a standout card featuring in the 10-round main event Andy Ksco-bar, Redonrin Beach lightweight, and Art Ramponi of Oakland. Here's one that, figuies to make the turnstiles dick even in the face of television. The program, as usual, will bp aired over KABC i") starting at 8:30 p.m. Escobar is a product of local Golden Gloves who has dropped only one decision in IS starts. That one loss, to Don Jordan, was later reversed, Heavy Slngger Ramponi is the heavy slugger from up north who has won M out ef 17 matches. In his lone local start a few weeks ago at the Olympic Ramponi lost to .Ionian in a blazing exchange of lethal leather. Escobar, a truly smooth boxer who mixes science with a good punch, will he favored by at least. 2-1. It will behoove Handy Andy, however, to keep his chin covered at. all times. Ramponi is a tireless worker and he'll be shooting all the while. If Escobar has his firing equipment well lubricated he'll do well to aim for an early knockout.

CANADIAN PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL Printed by MURPHY MOTORS channel NIC TCKVISION 'fcA'' - '' V. r 'Ml UP) Wirephoia Most observers expected the two youngsters to succumb to pressure today and blow against the tourney-seasoned Miss Faulk. 27, and Mrs. McMillen, 29. By a strange quirk, it was just the other way around. Miss RornHck, steady as steel and chomping away on some chewing gum, was even par for the 12 holes, despite a double bogey 6 on the 111 h. Miss Wright, chain-smoking but perfectly calm, was 1 over par for 14 holes. Mickey Favored Par for the 6034-yard course is .16-3773. Miss Romack, fivp-feel-thter and blond, defeated Miss Wright, 4 and 3, en route to the California State Championship last year. She beat the La Jolla girl by the same margin when both were juniors in 19."0. Miss Wright, however, probably will be favored tomorrow. She is rated the most promising coiner in women's golf. he succeeds in this it will mark the first time in his pro career that. Ramponi was ever slopped.

Sept. 17 frPl"It j was easier than I figured. He; never hurt me once. I should have knocked him out sooner but. I guess I was overeager." This was a surprising statement for the usually gallant Rocky Marciano to make after knocking out Ezsard Charles in eight rounds at Yankee Sta dium tonight to retain his world heavyweight championship. A cut, an ugly looking gash across the tip of his nose that was only partially concealed by a blook-soaked patch, failed io hide Rocky's good humor as he answered countless questions hurled at him by reporters. Right, Left, Right "Yeah, I fought him differently this time," he said. "In the first fight he hit me .with lots of short right hands. This time I was watching for them and booking away. No, 1 didn't think he was as strong this time as the last. "It was a combination that finished him a right, left, right. The same one that knocked him down in the second round. I should have finished him then but 1 was overanxious." Covered by a worn and tattered bathrobe from head to foot, Marciano was a picture of ease and confidence as he patently answered all questions. Cut by Nlbovv "The cut on the nose?" he repealed. l-lt came from Charles' elbow. 1 think it was in the sixth tound. It wasn't intentional though. Charles is a clean fighter. No, it didn't bother my breathing. It just made me fight a' little harder because it bled so much. I was afraid it might get worse. "The cut on the eye? That didn't come from a punch either. It was the result of a I head butt. That, too, was acci dental. "Yeah, I guess I did hit him a couple of times after the bell. Rut, honest, 1 didn't hear it. .lust once I heard it. That was after he hit me after the bell." Challenger Felled Marciano said he knew he had Charles after he felled the challenger with a right, left, right combination in the sec ond round. ! "He got away then," Rocky, said, "but 1 knew- then that Ij would get him again sooner or! later. He didn't appear to he as; strong and he couldn't seem to hurt me. "I got him with two right, left, right combinations in the eighth. The first, combination was what really dirt it. The second one was merely window dressing. He was out on his feet."

The AP card was 5-1-1. Kaxer to drop the man he had heen unahle to floor in 15 rounds in their first rnatch. Marciano hit Charles after the bell in the second, fifth and seventh. Charles traded punches -wiih him after the fifth. Referee Berl warned Rocky at the end of the fifth and seventh for the after-ihe-bell blows and cautioned him for a borderline low blow in the sixth. Charles did not. escape warnings from Berl who cautioned him for holding on in both the fourth and seventh. Time after time he had to pry Kzy.y away from Marciano.' At I921a pounds, heaviest of his caieer, Charles took charge of the 187-pound champ in the first round. He was. hooking with the left and driving home short right-hand punches to the head while tying up Rocky in close. The champ was missing. Charles Floored But Rocky did not, permit Charles to pile up the wide early lead he took in June. In the second the champ drove three solid right-hand punches to the body and then boomed home a right to the head that floored Ezzy. Charles bounced tip quickly as though he were ashamed to be down and took only a two-count. He lunged back at the champ in the final seconds of the round. In his anxiety to put over a finisher, Marciano drove home a ri?ht. after the bell ended the second. In the third Marciano caught Charles on the ropes for the first time. It took him 15 rounds to do that in June but this was a different, sharper champion. Kz.ard Staggered Although Charles was staggered three times in the third and again in the fourth, he managed to fight, on even terms in the fifth. Spinning Marciano with one hand around his neck, he drew a warning from Berl. Then Marciano launched another fierce attack lhat found both men swinging freely after the bell. Charles seemed stronger in the sixth but choe to hold instead of fight. Marciano was dancing away in his free-wheeling style when he ran flush into a right uppercut and left hook. Immediately, blood started spurting from a cut on his nose. It seemed the nose might have been split. There was an orange-colored ball of fuzz on the tip of ihe champ's nose as he came out for the seventh.

After drawing a warning for hitting with the back of an open glove, Marciano resumed his battering ram attack. Chases Challenger He was chasing Charles around the ring and apparently didn't hear the bell again for ha loo.-p(i a right-hand punch after it sounded. Marciano. a 5-to-l favorite, was winning the fight, big but there was concern in his corner about the cuts. In the eighth he came nut t end it. with no questions asked. A right-hand lead to the head made Charles shake and blink his eyes. A right to the jaw dropped Kzzy on his side under the ropes on the ring apron for the two-count. Charles Crumlile Room went the left. Rang went the right. Swish went.Hhe left and Charles crumpled to the floor. Although he got to his knee? he no longer had any fight left. There were some at the ringside who thought Charles might, have been able to get up the last time he went down. For a time it seemed he might, but he started too late. It was the third knockout for Charles in his 99-bout career and his first since he was flattened by Jersey Joe Wal-cott's left hook at Pittsburgh in 1951, the night he lost the title. This.was his third attempt to win it back, a new high in ring fmility.

Troy, a zz-year-oid JNegro from Washington, weighed 153. Cartier, a 30-year-old veteran from Brooklyn, was in at 161. It was a real slam-bang fight from the outset when Cartier stormed out of his corner and slid to one knee. Referee Har-rv Volkman forced ('artier to itake an eight count over the Brooklyn puncher's vigorous prote-t. Cartier forced the fight all the way, pushing, shoving and battling through Troy's defenses. Time and again, in the second and third round, he seemed to have Troy in trouble, but. Willie's iron chin saved him. Troy look command in th fourth when he caught Cartier racing in on him with a wicked left hook. fUlL PKCf UP TO $800
