And for the third time in less*than four months, the boxing world has nad proof that Bob Chrlsten- berry wields a big stick. The soft-spoken but fast-movm" chairman of the State Athletic Commission threw the book at Manager-Second Tommy Ryan yesterday when he revoked his licenses for life and fined him $3.000 for his attack on Referee Ray Miller in Madison Square Garden eight days ago. It wes the-heaviest punishment ever meted out to an individual by the commission. Ryan, who managed Middleweight Rocky Castellan!,, was punished for punciiing Miller after the official had stopped the bout between Ernie Durando of Bayonne, N. J., and Castellan! in the seventh round. Durando was awarded a technical knockout. More Investigation After announcing the penalty ngalnst Ryan following a second hearing, Ciirislenberry said' "Certain other incidents that took place at Madison square Oar- den that riight are a matter of official investljitlori by the commission at this time." He Wouldn't elaborate but it was tbvlous that he was referring to the alleged attack on matchmaker Al VVelll in Castellani's dressing room Two witness?!' testified last Saturday at 'the edmmissioh's preliminary hearing that ftyan had assauited Wetll. The grand Jltry is investigating that incident as well. It has "heard 10 Witnesses. Welii, who t»ys he doesn't know who. hit him, has appeared Wfore the grand Jurjr. Neither he nor RVafi testiiied at either of the com- missiort's 1*6 hearings. Th* hearing; yesterday touched only oh Ryan's attack on Miller. Ryans' attorney, Arnold Cohen, said he did not call his client »E a witness before the cohilhlssioh because of the grand jury ihvesti- gation now going on. Cofieri said I that the procedure of the hearing! might involve Ryan's Constitutional I rights. j Mobley, Fields Are Booked on Legion's Card The popular wrestling team of Lee Fluids and Rex Mobley will be re-united here Monday night In the main event bout of the American Legion's wrestling matches at Memorial Auditorium. Fields and Mobley, both junior heavyweights, are scheduled to meet Red Roberts and Chlco Cortez, the mad Mexican, in the teg match feature. Several months ago Fields and Mobley joined forces here and ran up a long,victory string In the four or five consecutive weeks they appeared on the Legion's card. Since that time, however, they have not appeared here as a team Mobley nnd Fields use the same wrestling tactics, relying on their speed and know how. Roberts and Cortez, on the other hand, are both big bruisers and rely mainly on their strength and weight. Two one-fall preliminary bouts ate also on the card with Mobley meeting Cortcz in the first and Roberts taking on Fields in the second.
