NEW YORK (AP)-Young Cassius Clay of Louisville stopped Billy Daniels of New York on cuts in the seventh round of a battle of unbeaten heavyweights at St. Nicholas Arena Saturday night. Referee Mark Conn halted the contest at 2 minutes 21 seconds of the seventh of the television fight because of a nasty cut over Daniels' left eye. "It hampered his vision," said (he referee. Daniels was gashed over the eye in the third round and bled freely the rest of the way. Dr. Sam Swetnick had visited Daniels' corner after the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds. Although the 5-1 favorite Clay had a good lead, he didn't ,show too well against the 25-year-old barber who twice hurt him with long rights to the jaw. The 20-year-old Clay had predicted "Daniels will fall in five" but he couldn't even floor his 6- foot-4 189 pound opponent. Clay weighed 196. It was Clay's 14th victory in an all-winning pro career and his llth knockout. Daniels suffered his first defeat after 16 victories. The officials had Clay ahead by the following scores: Beferee Mark Conn 5-1, and Judge Artie Aidala and Leo Birn, baum 4-2 each. The AP card had Clay in front 4-2. Clay piled up points with his stiff left jabs and straight rights to the head. He concentrated on the cuts over Daniels eye from the moment he opened it in the third. vious weekend, only two spots were left open in the 33-car starting field. Blistering heat kept the cars ofl (lire track for four and a half hours of the seven hour qualifying period. Hurlubise was the first out after t!he track surface temperature dropped from a record 141 grees to 107 late in the afternoon. He 'hit the wall twice coming 'out of the southwest turn after a first lap at 147.3 miles-an-hour. The 31 qualifying cars had averaged 147.254 m.pjh. compared with a record 145.094 for the first 31 last year. There was only one qualifier after the Hurlubise wreck. Lloyd Ruby, Houston, Texas, put the Anstead Thomison special into the field at 146.52. The intense - hea.t made the asphalt- surface slick in spots. There were seven mistmos r 1 '- geliher but only Hurtubise damaged his car. However, a Tropi- eana Special (formerly Novi) broke a crankshaft and sent Bill Cheesbourg, Tucson, Ariz., into a hair raising spin and slide down the backstreloh. Oheesebourg said the V8 engine seized when he was going an estimated 202 miles an hour on the long backstretch of the 2!^-mile track. The spin was so violent that both rear tires were burned off. The spin further dimmed hopes of getting any of the modified Novas into the race. The cars have been plagued with one trouble after another — fuel injector trouble .earlier and steering gear trouble Saturday. Other drivers who got out of control for one reason or another but escaped injury were- Leon Clum, Wapa'koneta, Ohio; Chuck Arnold, Stamford, Conn., Roy Graham, East Aurora, N. Y. and Cliff Griffith, Indianapolis. The engine blew in Bruce Jacobi's Froe'hde Special just after he completed a qualifying run at 144.939. However, the time probably won't be good enough to keep 'the Salem, Ind., driver in the lineup. Track technicians said the track registered 139 degrees during the blistering 1953 race, when driver Carl Soar-borough, died of heat exhaustion and several others were hospitalized. The air temperature was only 58 degrees at midaflernoon, but the'track heat had been accumulating through three hot days. Nine oars were qualified before the afternoon lull, bringing the total to 30, and leaving only lives' spaces in the tentative starting lineup. Eddie Sachs 1 of Coopersburg, Pa.,, who wrecked on the first weekend of the 10 - mile trials, came back and qualified his Dean Autolite Special at 146.431 miles an hour — a mile an hour" slower than the speed that' gave him the pole position last year.
