Villie Ketchum. who feel the LOS ANGELES 'sity of Southern California's rec ord of not having been defeated in a dual track and field meet in 13 years hangs in jeopardy this week end when the Trojans meet the Southern California Striders. Coach Jess Mortensen admitted he was preparing himself for a possible licking by the powerful AAU team barring a strong improvement by his men in every event. Mortensen told the Southern California Track and Field Writers and Coaches Association Monday that the Striders had too much class for such an early - season meet. Coach Joe Mangan of the club team admitted his squad was looking forward to the meet with the Trojans, but he refused to make a victory prediction and pointed out that in an AAU team there were chances men who should be counted on might not <UPI>—Univer-|get the chance to prepare as well as they might like. The Striders last Saturday ran up ldl'i points to UCLA's 42'« in the four-way meet in Redlands, and Bruin Coach Ducky Drake said UCLA was no match for the AAU team. Drake said he would do some experimenting this Saturday when his team meets Cal Poly and Santa Barbara in a triangular meet. The writers and coaches named Max Truex, former SC distance star, the track athlete of the week for running the two-mile event in 3:47.2 in the Milwaukee Journal Games, fastest time ever run by an American. Joe Wiley of Los Angeles State was named field performer of the week for broad jumping 24 feet, 10 inches. results in the Last night's Majors: Terrier TV over Pioneer Market 2-1.

The fast - punching, second- ranked Cuban was a 3-1 favorite against Charley Scott, a newcomer from Philadelphia, in th e i r :0-round bout at St. Nicholas Arena Monday night but when the votes were tallied Scott wound up with a split decision. Logarfs New York troubles actually started last March when he suffered a sixth round knockout at the hands of Virgil Akins in a welterweight contenders' elimination bout that set off a large- scale boxing probe that is still in progress. Akins went on to win the 147- pound crown, then lost it to Don Jordan. Logart, meanwhile, had l)cen biding his time—hoping for another crack at Akins or a possible title fight with Jordan. But all those plans apparently were ruined by his upset loss to Scott, an unranked battler with plenty of power but little finesse. Taking command midway in th? light. Scott willingly slugged i! out with Logart and earned the nod on his superior punching. Scott weighed 147 pounds to Lo gart's 146 3 4.

Games Rained Out Rumors Of Trades Rampant United Press International A rainy day in the Florida base- nall camps usually produces trades and-or rumors of trades. It was that kind of a day on the soggy citrus circuit .Monday. Four exhibition games were rained out so several possible player transactions were reportedly being discussed. The New York Yankees, con cerned over Don Larson's recurrent shoulder ailment, have turned again to the Washington Senators for pitching help. The world champions would like to pry ei ther Pedro Ramos or Dick Hyde- loose from the .Nats. They also are eyeing southpaw Billy Hoeft of the Detroit Tigers. The Senators, in turn, have indicated they are willing to peddle Roy Sievers to the White Sox. But Cal Griffith, the Nats' owner, insists "we're not going to give cream for skim milk." That pro- umably means the White Sox will have to offer center fielder Jim Landis as part of the deal. However, the Cleveland Indian 0 may wind up with both Ramos and Sievers. Frank Lane plans to confer with Griffith Wednesday at St. Petersburg, Fla. The Cleveland general manager is expected to offer outfielder Minnie Minoso pitcher Jim Grant and infielder Woody Held for the Nats' pair. Another possible trade involving the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Redlegs reportedly has advanced past the talking stage. This one would send outfielder Gus Bell to the Cardinals for southpaw Vinegar Bend Mizell. In the only two exhibition games played Monday, the Kansas City Athletics blanked the; Tigers. 6-0. and Ted Kluszewski's; first spring home run sparked the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-1 victory o\er the Cincinnati Redlegs.

SELL IT TOMORROW With an inexpensive Classified Ad Cincy, West Virginia Favored In NCAA Event LOUISVILLE. Ky. (UPH-The records and the ratings made Cincinnati and West Virginia the favorites today to meet in the finals of the NCAA basketball tournament here Saturday night, but Louisville's own comeback kids were getting plenty of support. As the vanguard of visitin, coaches and fans arrived, they discovered three things were difficult, perhaps impossible to locate in this basketball-hep city: A hotel room, a ticket to the tourna ment and a Louisvillian who doesn't think the hometown Cardinals can win it all on their own floor. Official tournament activity be_;an today when sports writers met at a lunch to hear Louisville Coach Peck Hickman engage in a telephone battle of words with his rivals, George Smith of Cincin nati.

The 6-foot. 9-inch former All- America from Louisiana State polled 273 points in the first vot ing ever done on a national scale by sports writers, capturing 21 ofj the 24 possible first-place votes. Rookie Elgin Baylor of the Minneapolis Lakers finished second with 142 points and two first- place votes. Third place went tol backcourt veteran Bob Cousy of] the Boston Celtics. Cousy had 121 votes and the one remaining first- place vote.

Louisville faces West Virginia in one semi-final game Friday night for the Eastern championship with Cincinnati and California tangling in the other for the Western title. The winners then will meet Saturday night to determine who picks up he NCAA crown which Louisville unceremoniously tipped off Kentucky's brow in the mid - east regionals at Evanston, 111. Very few people, and least ofj all NCAA officials, thought that a Louisville team which entered the tournament as an at-large team with a mediocre 16-10 record would ever knock off Eastern Kentucky, Kentucky and Michigan State in a row to come back here and play for the national crown on its own floor. Cincinnati Highest Ranked In the final UPI national rankings. Cincinnati was No. 4, California No. 9. West Virginia No. 11. and Louisville was unranked. Cincinnati, the Missouri Valley Conference champion, comes in with a 25-3 record, the nation's top scorer in Osccr Robertson and a victory over Kansas State in the mid-west regional final at Lawrence, Kan. West Virginia. Southern Conference representative, boasts a 27-record and one of the nation's smoothest performers in Jerry West, who twice saved the Mountaineers from disaster with late- scoring hursts in tournament play. California, from the Pacific Coast Conference, has a 23-4 mark built on the nation's best defensive record. The Bears have allowed opponents only 51.5 points per game, and have won their last 14 games in a row. Louisville with only two seniors on its squad, had only a 9-9 record going into February, but the Cards suddenly turned into a driving, rebounding, hot-shooting ball club that won 10 of its last 11 games before scoring its three tournament victories, and now has a 19-10. overall record.

TELECAST TRIPLE CROWN NEW YORK (UPIi—The "triple crown" cf thoroughbred racing— the Kentucky Derby. Prcakness and Belmont—will be telecast and broadcast nationally this year by the Columbia Broadcasting Sys tern. Moore - Robinson Could Be Sugar Ray's Last Big Payoff By OSCAR FRALEY United Press International NEW YORK (UPP — Archie Moore and Ray Robinson are headed today for a one million dollar light heavyweight date which well could be Sugar Ray's last big payoff. Jack Dempsey summed it up once in analyzing what happens when a boxer reaches the end of the road. The old Manassa Mauler doubled up a fist which looked bigger than any grapefruit you ever saw and stared at it som­ brely. 'You never lose the punch," he insisted. "The legs go and you can't move, but you never lose the punch." But those two points — failing legs and surviving power — spell a frightening prophecy for Sugar Ray. His amazing, flashing speed of foot is gone and, even though he has won back the middleweight crown three times since his return from a two and one-half year retirement, he has been a shuffling, flat-footed caricature of the man once known as the dancing dynamiter. These will be two old men in action, whenever and wherever he fights Archie this summer or fall, as they surely will. Sugar Ray at 39 has lost that sleek, tigerish look which was his back in the days when nobody could lay a glove on him. He gets hit now; hard, solid and often. It is true that Archie is "only" 43 by his own claim but his mother fixes his age at 46. He doesn't look it. Archie, using his 'own secret reducing formula, can pare down from 200 pounds to 175 as quickly as somebody else can put up a lush guarantee for a title defense. Meanwhile, he get« fat thriving on the breed of heavyweights in operation today But he has—and according to the Dempsey estimate—will always have that lethal punch which knocked down Rocky Marciano and has sent more men into limbo than any other fighter in history- Even at 175 pounds he is a heavyweight puncher. Sugar Ray, too, was always a- heavy hitter. But there is a dif-j ference in. knocking out a 150 or a 160-pounder and a 175-poundcr. and of late the slowing Sugar Ray even has had trouble stowing away the former. Robinson's speed is gone and Archie at any age still has that fearsome punch. It could mark the end of the boxing tourney, at long last, for Bohinsan 82 Compete In Archery Shoot At Calimesa An archery shoot was held at the Redlands range in Calimesa Sunday under the auspices of the Redlands Field Archery Club.
