nLYTIIEVILLEJARK,) COURIER NEWS , Big Joke' Graziano Insists • Boxer Must Convince Probers He Did Not Consider Bribe Offer NEW YORK.'Feb 6 " (UP)— Boxer RorXy Grazlano was ready to con- ! vlnre .ihe New York Athletic Com- j mission that he thought the effort to bribe • him tor $100,000 .was "all j a Wg |X>ke." . | Graziano, who has freely admit- i ted-. that; he was approached wit hi a proposition to throw his scheduled pec, 27 light with Ruben Shank of Denver, realizes that it will tie no .laughing' matter for him if he can't get the joke idea arross to the commission. Failing: to convince Eddie Eagnn, chairman ol the commission, and Dr. Clilaii' Powell, Its other member, -Graziano is virtually certain to be suspended ..... perhaps barred from 'the ring for life. Also scheduled to testify with Graziano at the hoaring "in the State Building, are Ills manager, Irving Cohen, his trainer. \Vhlti-y Bimstein, and Dr. Sym Nelson, the commission physician, '.vho reported that the fighter had a "sacro- illac ; condltion" when the bout with Shank was cnlleti off — presumably for that reason. The district attorney's office, . which has presented .the case against Graziano at the hearing, contends he got out of the figlit because lie didn't want to go through with the tome deal ami not -because of a lame -back. Dr. Nelson is expected to testify that GrazlanVs illness was not feigned. Graziano K not under arrest and the only , interest of the district attorney's- office is in tracking down the men who tried to bribe him 'for prosecution under null-fix li'.WS- , , StMl Catching Files THURSDAY, FEBRUARY G, 1947 Ted Williams shows pretty him Jury Refuses Overtime to AQP Workers LI'm.K ROCK; Ark., Feb. ti'_ (UP) — Efforts of ia former employee* at the Arkansas Ordnance Plant to (jhlain overtime pay railed yesterday wlicii a U.
