Rademacher Chaves,' Pate Moves Well, NEA Writer Says By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor ISSAQUAH, Wash. (NEA) Peter Rademacher maneuvered Johnny Jliggins into a corner and started to throw to the head. Riggins, a dusky 184-pounder from Detroit, sprayed punches, a bit too easily, perhaps, to the middle of Rademacherls strong-looking body. Then Riggins moved out 'of the corner and Rademacher, surprisingly agile, was after him. This was your first look at the Implausible young man who is to have ' his first professional bout as 'challenger for Floyd Patterson's heavyweight title on Aug. 22 Rademacher trains in a fire-house here in this small village 20 miles north of Seattle, Pete boxed two rounds with Riggins and it was enough to give a vague notion of how he fights. His idea, apparently, is to corner Patterson and go to the head. The fact that his body is wide open disturbs one used to seeing fights. V Rademacher's reddish - brown hair is losing a battle io suntanned skin on the top -of his head. He has the sloping shoulders of a puncher and his tanned body has freckles on it here and there. Those expecting a big, slow, muscle-bound guy are surprised. Rademacher moves loosely and well. Mark of Amateur But here and there, the mark of amateur shows in his movements. -But all this is forgotten when you walk donwstairs to the little basement dressing room he uses, sit down on an old couch and listen to Rademacher talk as an Army sergeant gives him a rub-down. As a talker, Pete is, roughly, an Archie Moore who shaves. , "Lindberg flew the Atlantic," Pete begins. "Gertrude Ederle swam the English Channel. They weren't accepted until they did It. I won the Olympic title, but when I came back I found I wasn't -accepted. I had to do something else. "I had two objectives. One was Archie Modre, who was old. One was Floyd Patterson, who was young. I was in' between. I was younger and stronger than Moore, more mature mentally and physically than Patterson. I wind up with Patterson. "That's fine with me. I'm taking this whole business in one swoop. No waiting. And I don't think Patterson can punch too well. As far as this first fight business, well, I've been working with pros for 10 years now. George here ,(he motioned to George Chemeres, the Seattle trainer) has handled me for that period. In fact, I boxed more against Harry Matthews than I ever did any amateurs," Pete went on. Master Merchant Like a door-to-door salesman who has the housewife ready to buy, Rademacher plunged on. The amateur is a master merchant and his basic attack with visitors is to underplay the whole business of his impending bout with Patterson. "There was," he smiles, "far more tension on me during the Olympics than now. This this is merely the fulfillment of something I , wanted to do. I'm not the least bit nervous about it. I'm ready right now, in fact. All we're doing here now is tamriny off, keeping sharp." Rademacher then, went into' a sermon about Youth Unlimited, the outfit which put up the money, and it is up all $250,000 of it to entice Patterson and Cus D'Amato into . a three-day train trip to this town. "Youth Unlimited," Pete said in hushed tones, "will give anybody who has the incentive a chance to do what , he wants to do" In some quarters; people hope it won't find too many amateurs who desire the heavyweight championship. "In my case," he smiled, "it is to put the lug on Patterson. Tl RES dpwidaM far 43 FleetRoadService W. S WILDE TIRE SERVICE 395 S. STATE FR 3-6035 Ah Harry Gray 16 SUNDAY, AUGUST 18, Utah County. ' Utah 1857 Pony Leag tie Quits, Levels Garth Seegmiller, charging f that Provo's Pony League program was being "prostituted into a political football for a cheap j politician's petty ambition," re-, signed Saturday as manager of t the Provo Phillies. Seegmiller, whose Provo "Phillies won the Timpanogds League championship during the past season, sent his letter of resignation to Ted McFadden, president of the league. Other copies of the letter have been sent to Joe Hoff, superintendent of the local plant of the Heckett Engineering firm, which sponsdrs the Phillies; Bob Thomas. Dresident bf. the Provo Junior Baseball Council, and Glen Berge, district director of Pony League. Correct Fundamentals Emphasizing that he has tried to instill within the boyS he has ! managed a spirit of sportsmanship, fair play, unselfishness and coordinated effort combined with the correct fundamentals of baseball, Seegmiller said in his letter of resignation, that he believes these things are "not only essentials of this American game, but sound principles of gpGijl citizenship, physically, morally,; and spiritually, in the America;! way of life." "If I have failed to do this, it is only because of my stubborn independence which cannot take unthinking dictation from a few petty and perennial moguls who have set themselves up as infallible judges in a, fine program for boys in which the moguls themselves have so little interest they pat themselves on the back for witnessing one or two Junior Baseball games again this season and thereby further enhance their judicious authority," he declared. Many Fine People Seegmiller said he didn't mean to infer that he was at logger heads with all league officials. On the contrary, he said he considered" many of the people with whom he was associated in the program as fine 'baseball men and citizens whose prime mo tives were the best interests of the boys. "I also have the deepest re- I can't wait to do it. I like to hit people," you know." One embarrassing question about the fact he won one of his Olympic qualifying bouts while on the floor after being fouled was quickly brushed aside by Rademacher. "Oh, that happened," he said, "but I beat the man, Johnny . Johnson, 'easily next time out." Outside the fire house, a vis itor tried to collect his thoughts after the. liberal brain-washing that had taken place. But all he could be certain of was that Mt. Rainier, which serves as a snow-tipped back-drop for this town, would wind up with a roof over it Pete Rademacher, salesman, wanted it that way. an HI COMPLETE LINE OF BLACK-HAWK ARCHERY EQUIPMENT ARCHERY SUPPLIES Quivers Gloves Arm Guards Brush Bottoms Nocking Points HUNTING BOWS. . . 23.95 up 5 Grades of hunting bows in stock ARROW MAKING EQUIPMENT Fletching Tools Feather Burners Papering Tool , Feathers, Points, Nocks mmu HUNTING SEASON SPORTING GOODS DEPT; 1030 So.

In his letter of resignation, the Phillies' manager didn't specifically name any particular individual or individuals in bis accusations. He also said "it is with deep regret that I must resign from my position as manager of the Provo Phillies Pony League baseball team." Seeks Reorganization The Phillies' pilot said he prob ably, would be called a quitter, by some, for "not having the intestinal fortitude to fights these few men who hold the reins and have so little interest in! baseball for boys." "If my being called a quitter will help reorganize our junior baseball program, particularly Pcny League, and such reorganization may retain the great majority of the loyal leaders who have devoted their time, energy and money to keep our boys off the streets in wholesale activity, then I don't mind being called a quitter," he said. "I hate to think of not being permitted to work with the wonderful young baseball players and the majority of capable coaches and managers of both Pony Leagues. Yet, you seem to leave me no alternative. "I cannot stand by with" my hands tied without speaking my mind while seeing this fine program of baseball become prostituted into a political football for a cheap politician's , petty ambition, nor a personal pawn for these several adults who masquerade behind their two-faced hypocrisy." 14-Year-Old Cops U.

Chess Title CLEVELAND, Ohio (UP) Robert Fischer, 14, of Brooklyn, N.Y., won the championship title of the 58th annual National Open Chess Tournament Friday night, besting any number of older players before tying tournament veteran Arthur Bisquierer of New York City. At first, young Bobby was declared the loser, and called nis mother in Brooklyn to make the sad admission that Y had not gained the international chess crown. He and Bisquirer, an IBM problemist, had tied at 10 points. Then, two mathematicians re-figured the highly complicated sys tem of computing honors. After consulting the Encyclopedia of chess, the experts named the teen age lad champion. That called for a second phone call to mother.
