Beau Jack Starts Comeback on Victorious Note COLUMBIA, S. C., I/PI —Showing little of the whirlwind style of attack that brought him the World Lightweight championship (New York version) 12 years ago, Beau Jack opened his comeback paign here last night with round unanimous decision over Eddie Green. In contrast to his old swarming style, Jack, now 33. fought flatfooted most of the way. He won the nod from Referee Ray Moore 97-95. Judge Ben Harper scored .it 99-95 and Judge Dom Pusci 9893. The Beau weighed 159 to 141 for the 27-year-old Green. Neither was in trouble although in the latter rounds Beau landed several stinting left hooks. The little Negro, a former shoeshine boy and caddy from Augusta, Ga. Showed traces of his old style while infighting 1 , but Green, fighting out of Kannapolis. N. C., tied him up before Jack couid do any real damage. Jack's last fight in the big time was in May, 1951. when Gil Turner stopped him. Beau has had trouble with his left knee. He favored it some against Green, but otherwise appeared in good shape Basilio Fights Mueller Tonight The Chick Bees and Paps put on masterful second half rallies last night to overcome Dyess' B team and juniors in two of the best ?ames that have been played at the Haley Field Gym this year. In the first game, Coach Bill Stancil's fast breaking Papooses turned in their best performance of the year as they whipped the high flying junior Eagles 67-53. B Team Wins In the nightcap Blytheville's unbeaten B team had to rally in the last quarter In order to protect their perfect record by a 63-61 count. Both games were corkers. The juniors, led by the smooth shooting and general floor play of their piv- otman Bill Wyatt, were in front most of the way. Wyatt. who hit 29 points from the pivot hole, paced the Paps to a strong finish that saw them outclass the junior Eagles, a team that defeated them 40 points in a previous meeting. The Paps got off to an early lead with forward Charlie Coalter fast breaking two straight field goals. That lour points was Just about the margin throughout the first quarter and then the Paps started .dding to their lead steadily. Dyess rallied strongly in the third period but Blytheville's lead was too much to overtake. Then the Paps put on a fine finish to wrap up the victory. Rally Pays Off The Dyess team, which appeared dead on its feet, was led by Goodman with 13 points. Right behind was Denton with 10. Moore meshed 14 points for Paps to gain runner-up honors in the scoring department. The Chick Bees had to. come from behind in the fourth quarter to get their sixth straight win. Dyess took command of the game midway in the first quarter and built up a 30-25 halftime margin. The Eagle reserves came back strong in the- third period and increased their lead to eleven points before the Chicks finally caught fire. Billy Daniels, Blytheville's rangy forward, had trouble finding the backet in the first half but he made up for it in (lie second. Daniels scored 19 points in the last two quarters to pace Blytheville's victory surge. He had a total of 22 for the night for high point honors. Guard Tommy Slayton came in for a good sized share of the work, too. with 11 points before he fouled out in the fourth. For Dyess. James and B. Jewell were high with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

(NEA) VYes Santee to Try His Luck At Indoor Running Tonight PHILADELPHIA lift—Vies Santee takes to the boards for the first lime this season in the 1955 Philadelphia Inquirer Games at Convention Hall tonight and the world's ranking active mller thinks he'll do all right. "I think the winner of the race (although he didn't say he'd win) will run pretty close to the world (indoor) record and probably will, top it if conditions are right," he said. "Due for Good Night" '•This is my first time on the boards this season and I've never run on the boards here before," he continued. "But I'll see what happens. I think I'm due for a good ight one of these days." Gil Dodds' world indoor mark of 4:05.3, set in 1948, figures to get a good test from Santee, who in turn figures to have all he can handle in Denmark's Gunnar Neilsen and' Belfast's Vic Milligan. Neilsen wop the mile event in the Boston K of C games last Saturday night in 4:07.9 and has said he's confident he can set a new world's mark before the indoor season ends. Another in Danger Another world mark is endangered in the 600-yard dash with Villanova's Charley Jenkins figured the winner. Jenkins was a half second off the world's record in the Boston meet. Andy Standfield and Rod Perry will battle it out in the sprints and Harrison (Bones) Dillard and Charley Pratt go at it in the hurdles. Other outstanding entries include Olympic winner Horace Ashenfelter in the two-mile; Army Pvt. Herman Wyatt, who leaped 6-10 in the high jump at Boston: and the Rev. Bob Richards and Don Laz in the pole vault. During sprnig training the Milwaukee Braves will meet the Brooklyn Dodgers 11 times.

Dressen in Queer; Surroundings as Washington Pilot By JOE RKICHLER NEW YORK (AP) — During his three-year reign_* Brooklyn, Charlie Dressen was blessed with a club that h«4,, great power, brilliant defense but poor pitching. In Washing, ton, the little skipper finds the situation exactly the opposit*. The pre-season dope on the sen-* ators is that they are a good-pitch, no-hit, no-field club. The "no-hit, no-field" lag may be discarded, by the time the regular season 'gets under way since all but four of the 16 rookie* in the Senators training oamp next spring will be either infieldew or outfielders. One newcomer who will find * regular position waiting for him is Bobby Kline. The shortstop job is his if he can hold it. Dressen also has stated that Pete Runnels, last year's regular shortstop, will be switched to second base. Acquired in Draft Kline was acquired via the draft from Birmingham where he batted .319 and field well to earn the Southern League's All-Star berth. Carlos Paula, a 6-3, 200-pounder appears a fair bet to win an outfield berth. Amazingly fast for a big fellow, Paula .may become the first negro to make It as a regular On the Washington club. He Was in ' camp last spring and showed lots of power but he went after too many bad pitches. The returns with a ".309 bating average at Charlotte including 14 homers and 83 RBI. He is 26. i Another interesting newcomer is first baseman Jesse Levan. currently playing in the Colombian League where he is hitting around 330. A big lefthanded hitter, Levan is being counted on to stick as a pinch hitter. Counted On Levan is 26. He had a brief trial with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1947 and in two games hit .444. A- couple of Cubans—Julio Be cquer and Juan Delis—will vie for the shortstop and first base Jobs. Becquer, 22, Is a fancy fielding first baseman who batted .260 at Havana.
