EIGHTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker LAWTON CARVER International N*wt Servict KentuckyWildcats May Set Per-Game Scoring Mark 9r ----- '"" NEW YORK—(INS)—Your Uncle Samuel needs only to take a realistic view of the salaries of athletes | to be quickly convinced that putting i a ceiling on these wages is unjust) and the cause of unnecessary furore. The worker or professional man outside sports has nearly a lifetime in which to make his bundle, the athlete is limited to a few years. He thug should be able to get it while the getting is good, before In juries cut short hit career or he is halted by natural infirmities in nil mid-thirties. That's one side of the picture. Another is that with a ceiling on athletes the promoters enjoy full labors of their hired hands, with restrictions on the payrolls but with gate receipts at potential record- breaking peak. Beyond all that, the Government need not waste too much time worrying about possible inflation in sports salaries. Our promoters are not inflationists at heart. You read about Ted Williams and Joe DiMagglo coming off with something Hke $100,000 a year and Stan Musial collecting , $50,000 and being deprived of ft raise to $85,000 and these figures loom large. However, there was many a-Peon sweating for peanuts until the players themselves helped to correct a salary evil that had persisted for years. Some players still are not over-salaried when their actual drawing power is contrasted with their pay envelopes. At a New York hearing on these wages yesterday, it was pointed out that baseball payrolls increased in 1951 only 2.6 per cent over 1950 and 4.7 per cent over 1949. That does not keep up with the increased cost of surviving. Baseball players are particularly vulnerable-to quick oblivion through injuries and natural curtailment of their abilities after only a few years. They, like others, now face the military draft as another hazard to their earning powers. The draft angle is as it should be. There is no argument about that. But, looking at it money-wise, most other citizens come back from military service in position to pick up where they left off. The athlete has retarder if not ended his moneymaking chances by the years he loses away from the game. The Government might consider these things and let them get what they can while they are able to do so, realizing all the time that the athletes arc the builders of the gale receipts. By way of further explanation.. ii it sounds like a gratuitous Blap at the promoters, it is not meant that way. The average athlete could not make a quarter without the administrative ability of the men who are in the front office. This again brings up the point that the athlete still has so many years in which to make his. The promoter can go on as long as he lives simply by obtaining new athletes when the old ones wear out. RuppCagers Own Present MarkOf83i5 Seek To Eclipse Rhode Island Pace Of 82.5 In 1947 NEW YORK— (ff) — It Kentucky, the nation's No. 1 college basketball team, continues its present scoring jace, the Wildcats will set a per- ;ame scoring record. The present mark is 82.5 set by Rhode Island State in 1947. Kentucky is going along at the rate of 835 points-per-game through last Saturday, according to statistics re- eased today by the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau. Even if the Wildcats don't break Rhode Island state's standard, they are practically assured of becoming ;he only other major team in history to maintain an 80-point-per-game record over an entire season. Defensive figures show Oklahoma A, and M. ruling the roost with ft ,ow average yield of 44.5 points-per- game, followed closely by Oklahoma ity with 45.9. Purman leads in field goal percentages (40.8) and Drake in free throw accuracy (70.8), while Seton Hall has committed the fewest personals per game (17.1) and Indiana the most (29.4).

Walcott, IBC Reach No Decision On 'Next Title Bout Opponent MIAMI, Fla.—(/P)—The great debate between "Promoter Jim Norris and Jersey Joe Walcott's manager continues today" with the date, site and opponent of the heavyweight champ's next fight still indefinite. Norris, president of the Inter-* national Boxing Club which holds exclusive rights to Jersey Joe's services, reported progress last night after a fourth session with Felix Bocchicchio, Walcott's manager. We're certainly no further apart," said Norris. "I think we have reached some mutual grounds in our negotiations. "As far as I'm concerned a Walcott-Ezzard Charles match is the only possibility. And the Charles people feel the same way. After all we have a contract for a return bout. We didn't mention Rocky Marciano's name at all today. "I don't blame Felix for trying to get all the money he can get. We're still talking, taking up different propositions. Some time this week we have to reach a deadline. Mr. Christenberry (Bob Christenberry, State chairman Athletic of the New York Commission) is serious about the mid-February deadline he set for Walcott to sign." Bocchicchio wants permission to bypass Charles and fight Marciano, the unbeaten slugger from Brockton, Mass. The Charles camp is holding firm to its demands for fulfillment of the return bout contract signed last year before Charles was knocked out by Jersey Joe in Pittsburgh. It was understood Bocchicchio's latest proposition $100,000 guarantee amounted to a to Charles from Wilson's, Cabbies Cage Rec Wins Wilson's Hardware romped over Yoder's Plumbers in. the High School,.Division of the City Recreation Basketball League and 4050 Cabs nipped Beef's Big Five in the Men's Class B.

If Charles would agree to step aside, liocchicchio's plan also would assure Charles of a 30-30 percentage split with the winner in June. However, Charles isn't buying, according to Norris.

Neither side liked the draw de- | cision. But most of the shrieking crowd of 7,859 at Olympia Stadium didn't seem to mind the officials calling the ten-round scrap all even. Rarely had two fighters smashed each other so continually and viciously in a Detroit .ring.
