But Jersey Joe, who probably will climb In the ring against Ez-' zard Charles, had one ally — Norrls. president of the I tlonal Boxing Club, which has contract with the champion. When Norrls heard that Bob Cnrlstenberry, the new chairman of-, the New York State Athletic Commission, had ordered Walcott to defend his title within 15 days or have It vacated In New York, the IBC president said: "I- had thought It was understood that Walcott was to be given the chance to make the most of the financial opportunities he has ns •hamplon before being required to defend." But Christ*nberry obviously did not see * that way. Originally, Wateott signed to defend his championship 90 days from July 18 and •gainst Charles. That went by the boards though, when Wnloctt began cashing In on the crown. Now Chri»tenberry apparently has derided ttw time has come to act.

We are hopefu of arranging the Walcott-Charle match for late March or earl April, which will leave time enoug: to prepare for » June bout betwee Marclano and the \vlnner."
