TUESDAY, APRIL 8,1985 BLYTMEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KEW1 PAQB NINF They Can't Stop Old Doc Kearns While Moore, Maxim Walk By JIMMY BRESLIN N'EA Staff Corretpondent NEW YORK — (NBA) — This was back in January and Charley Johnston and Jack Kearns were sitting at a table in a Broadway restaurant. At the bar a fellow moaned. "They are not," he shuddered, "cooking up another Moore-Maxim match, are they? Truman Gibson, the International Boxing Club's Chicago bigwig, looked at the two managers and laughed. "Whenever you see those two sitting down, anything can happen, gentlemen. Right now, I'd say. they are busy cutting up close to a million dollars." The first development out of this meeting takes place in San Francisco, Apv. 12, when Bobo Olson, middleweight champion, steps into the ring to try his luck against Joey Maxim, the former light- heavyweight champion who is Reams' only visible means of support. That is, unless you look closely. Then you see a calendar for the next set of big middleweight and light-heavyweight bouts—and they all come out as nothing more or less than a benefit for Kearns. And they could realize that million Gibson talked about. To begin with, Olson, the home town hero, and Maxim figure to draw handsomely. An appealing pairing, it should serve as a good line on Olson's chance to lift the 175-pound title from venerable Archie Moore, With Joey Giardello doing his road work in courtroom corridors, there isn't a middleweight .around who can make money for Sid Flaherty's 160-pound king. So, Flaherty has his sights set on a shot at Moore, probably in a New York ball park in June. That Field and Stream One Way to Be Sure Of Having Worms — Raise '£ m. Yourself By AL MoCLANE Fishing Editor This is the time of year when fresh-water addicts who plan a campaign of worm dunking in the months ahead might start thinking about building a supply of bait in the back yard. As we all learn from experience, it's foolish to depend on worms , being available the night before opening day. It may be too cold; maybe there'll be too much rain. So when the first warm day.1 come along, you might consider building your own worm farm. All you need is a large, tight wooden box. The Department of Agriculture, which also takes an Interest in such things (Farm Bulletin 1569) suggests one at least 18 Inches deep by 36 by 60 Inches, which will serve very well lor several hundred large worms. If the outside of the box is well tarred it will last much longer ni the soil than if untreated. Creosote is not recommended because ol its possible effect on the worms. The inside of the box may be waterproofed by painting with hot paraffin wax. The box should have a well- fitting lid, which should project sufficiently over Its edges to prevent Hooding during heavy rains. It should be set into the soil with the upper two or three inches projecting above the surface in a fairly well-drained place, and should be shaded to prevent the temperature of the interior from j rising too high in midsummer. A temperature of 75 degrees or i higher is quickly fatal to earth- i worms under most conditions. j The box should be nearly filled with good soil which is damp but not wet. The richer this soil is in humus, the better, as the, worms require less artificial feeding in rich soil than in poor .A loamy soil is preferable; very For Ihe third consecutive year Al Ferrari was named the most valuable player on the Michigan State basketball team. one would draw a fortune. First. Flaherty hns to find cut- in a way where his, man cannot get hurt badly—if Bobo can handle the bigger puys. Thus, Kearns' tiger, whose punches never accomplished anything more than blackening his wife's eye. An Olson victory would put him in Hne for Uie Moore shot. Archie, supposedly paired with Nino Valdes in a match to be promoted by Kenrns at Las Vegas in May, would be ready for Olson in June or July if nothing happens to him with Vnldes. AtMardano shot for the ancient and honorable St. Lous man is as probable as Kearns forgetting: an tingle. Kearns, you see—and the more that is seen of this fantastic old guy, the more you believe anything is possible—has his hand In everybody's pocket. At that New York meeting with Johnston, Moore's manager, he represented Flaherty. How'd he get there? Simple. It was Kearns who dug up Al Naiinan of Cleveland and his $125,000 for ft Rocky Cnstellanl-Olson title match which was the Hawaiian - Portuguese Swede's easiest touch since becoming champ. Endeared by Flaherty because ol it—and always considered a part ner of sorts in Moore's manage inent-—Kearns .is the perfect agen ( to arrange a Moore-Olson tiff. For his trouble in lining up this attractive engagement — in which .both sides would pay nim — Jack undoubtedly would require a part of the promotional profits, too. Still the master maneuverer in his 70's, the mnn who made Jack Deinpsey is a little too quick for the average bloke in boxing 1 today. What do you think will happen if Maxim beats Olson? Batten down your town, men! It would mean, .believe it or not, another Moore-Maxim fight for the light-heavyweight title, For, as Jack Kearns says, "after all, we didn't fight in Seattle yet. Or Argentina, neither." Golf's Shooting Stors Giant George Bayer Hits Bail Out of Sight (Seventh In » series on the sroal new names In professional golt — the successors to' the acini Hoj;an», Sne.ins and Demareis.) By NEA Service George Bayer, who at 29 stands 6-5 and weighs 240 pounds, started playing golf in Los Angeles at 7, lost interest at 16 and did not resume hitting a long ball until ho matriculated at Washington in the spring of J946. sandy soil Is not suitable. After the box has been stocked with worms, a very excellent covering consists of well-decayed leaves, which form a considerable part of the natural food of earthworms. ;In dry weather it will be necessary to moisten the soil in the bo occasionally, but too much water Is injurious la the worms. Freezing kills them. He played football in the East- West Shrine Game and seriously considered a baseball career as a pitcher. He returned to golf in Seattle and concentrated on it in west coast tournaments. The young man's terrific power — he is considered golf's longest hitter — caught the eye of Toney Penna. veteran clubmaker and play- InB professional, who arranged a deal for him with a club at Olenhead. Long Island. During the recent St. Petersburg Open. Bayer closed with a golf equipment manufacturing firm for full-time subsidization on tour, switched from Glenhead to Cincinnati. Bayer, a pleasant chap, has a full and oval face and a torso in accord with his gigantic frame. Because of his power, Bayer always packs n gallery. Ho is noted most for tremendous length, always 300 yards off the tee, but he still lacks the touch with the short Irons and putter. Bayer has never lost a driving contest. His longest measured drive was made in the Tucson Open the past winter—420 yards on a dried-out fairway. He won a driving contest at Las Vegas with 348 y'ards on the fly. In a practice round before the SJ,. Petersburg Open, he drove the ninth green—300 yards. The ball hit two yards short, kicked on and he two-putted for ti birdie. That came after George Bayer had driven the 358-yard eighth hole for another birdie. NEXT: Bob TCoslnirjr.
