(AP WIrephoto). NBA Tells 3 Champs- Defend Your Crowns WASHINGTON, Dec. II. (API-Three world's champion boxers have been warned: the National Boxing Association wants only fighting cham . plons. and if titles aren't defended, they'll be forfeited. The Warnings were made In let- :ers sent out by the NBA yesterday. The bluntest warnins went to welterweight champion Kid Garilan of Cuba. Gavilan must sign a contract within 10 days to fight Charles Hume? of France, the NBA said, or his title will be taken away from him. Col. Harvey L. Miller, executive secretary for the NBA, said Oavilan had been given the title only on the condition that he would give Hume?;, the European champion, a crack at It. Heavyweight champion Jersey Joe Walcott and light heavyweight champion Joey Maxim were reminded that they have only three more mfnths In which to decide whom they will meet In title lights To help Walcott and Maxim with their homework, the NBA obligingly listed the fighters it thinks most entitled to the chance. For Walcott: Rocky Mardano of Massachusetts, Clarence Henry of California and Ezzird Charles of Ohio are "logical contenders." For Maxim: Archie Moore of Missouri and Harry Ma thews of Washintgon are the logical choices the NBA said. Yesterdays flurry of letter-writing is the result of an NBA convention in Chicago Sept. i 15. The NBA decided too many champions are doing too little fighting. It ruled that If a title has not been defended for six months and one day. "title recognition 'shall be withdrawn." Harness Racing King Announced COLUMBUS. Ohio, Dec. 11. tffi— John F.

Walnut & Broadway Phone 4555 Already embroiled in a bitter battle for patronage, the signing of the stormy, iwashbuckling Stanky is certain to Intensify the unconcealed hostility between trie city's two ball cluiw-the Cardinals and the Browns. With Stanky leading the Cards anrt the equally-colorful Rogers Ifornsby directing the Drowns, the baseball news emanating from St. Louis this summer should be hotter than Sportsman park's sunbaked Jnfie-ld. Both nre fiery, forceful characters, fierce competitors with a burning desire to win at any cost. Both are free-speakers, know the value of publicity and are not' Immune to "popping off." As If that weren't enough to arm the ears of an old two-fisted street brawler, he can find comfort in the fact, that Stanky and Hornsby will be managing teams originally meant for the other. It Is not generally known that Brownie boss Bill Veeck had tried to get Stanky to manage his American League team and that Fred Saigh. head of the Cards, had attempted to land Hornsby to ramrod the Red Birds. But that 'Is actually what happened. Veeck approached the Giants as far back as last August, requesting permission to offer Stanky the managerial Job with the Browns. Horace Stoneham, owner of the Giants, was reluctant to let, Stanky go since he felt his little second baseman was still a valuable member of the club. Stoneman, however, did not want, to stand in Eddie's way. He gave Stanky the choice of staying with the Giants In some' capacity "as long as I'm the boss" or taking the Brownie Job. Slanky preferred to remain with the Giants. Hornsby was a leading candidate for the Cardinal job. He held several conferences with Saigh during late September and early October but finally chose the position with the Browns when Saigh refused to match Veeck's offer of a three-year [contract. i Stanky intends to be a playing manager.

Fields, Welch Are Victors In Tag Bout Lee Fields and Roy Welch last night made quick work of Charlie Carr and Eddie Malone in the tag match feature of (he American Legion's wrestling bouts at Memorial Auditorium. The veteran heavyweights copped the tag match decision in straight falls needing only two of three falls affair in 14 minutes. Peilds beat Carr in 13 minutes with an Oklahoma jackknife and Welch beat Malone a minute later with ilams and a pin. Welch and Fields needed only 16 ninutes to take the second round. Welch beat Carr In nine minutes with an arm bar and Fields defeated Malone in seven minutes with body slams and a pin. In the preliminary bouts. Fields beat Carr In 11 minutes with a jack knife and Mulone was disqualified after 10 minutes for unnecessary roughness. Bad Boy Brown officiated all bouts. three years of big league ball left in him. Charles, Maxim Fight Tomorrow SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. II. I/P>— Ezzard Charles, an ex-heavyweight champ, and Joe Maxim, the light heavy titlcholder, tangle here tomorrow night ifi a 12-round fight that may determine who gets a shot at Jersey Joe Wolcoit's heavyweight ciown. Promoters Jimmy Murray and Lou Thomas expect the gross to exceed $100,000 from a near capacity crowd of about 15,000 fans. Charles will receive 35 per cent ' The Stanley and DIMaggto developments probably will overshadow the seven-player deal completed lasl night between, the Cincinnati Red« and Philadelphia Phils. In the only official iwap of th« winter meetings, Cincinnati *ent Pitcher Howie Pox (9-14), second baseman Connie Ryan (.334) »nd catcher Forrest Burgess (.251) to Phils for catcher Andy SeminlcX^, (233), outfielder Dick steler (.287)^ pitcher Niles Jordan (2-3) and in- Helder Eddie Pellagrini (.234). Stanky's switch to St. Louis for pitcher Max Lanier (11-9) and outfielder Chuck Diering (.269) hinges on an agreement between the peppery little second baseman a»id Fred Saigh. Card owner. That Is a foregone conclusion. Saigh and Stanky talked on tht telephone tat night and will compromise on a two-year contract at £37,500 when Eddie flys into St. Louis today to meet his new boss. Lanier and Diering Although the Giants and Cards didn't annoiince the players involved in the Stanky deal, it was learned Lanier and Diering are the men. There was a slight complication last night when Lanier said his St. Petersburg restaurant business might keep him out of baseball next year. Lanier, 36-year-old veteran lefty, would bolster the Giant staff and Diering, a good-field, no-hit center fielder, would provide center field Insurance In case Willie Mays Is drafted. Stanky, who played 145 games las* year, and hit .247 for the pennant-, winning Giants, expects to play stojf. ond base for his Cards. In that^' case, Hed Schoendienst might bo shifted to first base. As Giant leadoff man. Eddie walked 127 Ume« last season and hit 14 homers. The DIMaggio announcement will settle the future of the 37-year-old star with the $100.000 salary. Joe told reporters after the World Series that h» had played hl» last game, but held off positive retirement at the request of the YanJa owners.
