DALLAS fIGHT TONIGHT Title Gate Is Short i . DALLAS, Tex (AP) - A late fcurge in ticket sales may boost 'the world's welterweight title w'fight between champion Curtis j 1 '' Cokes and challenger Francois )' Pavilla of Paris into a paying proposition tonight. I But it's no worry to either J since they have guarantees, Cokes getting $35,000 and Pavilla $7,500 and expenses. • . *• *- r Kenneth Hayles, who Is promoting the fight for the Greater Dallas Spdrts Association, is quite interested though. He checked up at the close of busi- ...ness Thursday and found there _was.almost $40,000 in the till. "I believe about 60 per cent of the gate will come in sales today abbut and that $100,000," •would mean said Hayles. "That would be fine. We need $65,000 to pay expenses." It was a trim • down from Hayles'. previous forecast of 10,000 paying customers and $131,000 but still was much more than most experts were predicting-6,000 paying $70,000. Cokes defends his title for the second time in seven months and he is a solid favorite to take out the eager young man from France because of superior height and reach and adeptness at the counter punch, plus what even the enemy camp concedes to be the best uppercut in the business. * * * Pavilla, according to his manager, Jean Brettonel, will make the fight with a flurry of punches from start to finish, concentrating on the body. "No question in view of the style Cokes uses (counter-punching), we will have to make the fight or we will not win," said Pavilla. Chicago .... Detroit .... :an. City .. ew York . Cleveland .'.

Jr. Hi Optimists Nail Birds; Lange Girls Click In a game that was highly competitive for four innings,! Miss Newcomb's Optimists defeated Eisner's Blackbirds 17-7 yesterday afternoon in YMCA Junior High Girls Softball League. Blackbirds drew first blood on a two-run first frame, after holding Optimists scoreless in the upper half. Birds still held a 2-1 advantage going into the third, when Optimists slammed four hits for four runs, and were a- bead to stay. Two crucial miscues in the fifth, them which would have got out of the inning, cost the Birds, as Optimists took advantage to chase across nine markers. Next game in this league is Tuesday, Bolin's Blue Jays vs. the Optimists. Lange girls banked up a big safety margin in the early stages and went on to defeat Sudbury 17-11 in YMCA Grade School Girls Softball League yesterday afternoon at Sportsman's Park. Winners posted one run in the first, but hammered 11 in the second. Subs took over after they had wrapped it up with five in the third. Sudbury first found the scoring combination in the third, when five hits produced five runs; then had a six-run frame in the fifth on only one single.
