Patterson knocked the Swede out in (he--sixth round.".. •Timrit'y, 61 and a former heavy- seisin champion himself, icld the L".S.

Johansson tnld a reporter: "I was properly ; checked and 1 know better about . mv condition than Tunney tU'tcs." Tur.ney had testified, that Jo- hansson'lacked the energy to-box. but that "the monopoly" wouldn't ; allow- an electronic examination because it .\vould have showed Johansson unfit for the bout phys- icaiJy. Tunney did nol say who he meant by "the monopoly." After .Tvumey's testimony in Washington, the general manager of the corporation that promoted ;he Miami Beach. F!a.. title fight between Johansson and Patterson said in New York thai Johansson had h?d a complete physical checkup in Florida with nothing omitted. strong support from both Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred enthusiasts and this one should prove, to be no exception. Topped by Vance Marshals. Flying Tom, winner of :a like event al Sunland in May, this should prove to be one of the most interesting races of the day. I This Pima, Arizona .speedster is i seldom beaten at this distance and i has long been recognized as one ] of the"fastest half mile horses in 1 the world. However, here he will j linu his work well cut'out.-for him. {He must turn back Clover Leaf, 1 owned by Ruidoso Downs, Dub (Phillips , . .

'H." Thompson. May High, .a six-year-old son of Hyno-Miss Gaines, was^ beaien less than a half a length in his Sunland Out- inj; and must be considered here. The unknown factor here coula be Roulade, from the stable of H. Mecom, Laredo, Texas. This : bay four-year-old Thoroughbred raced well at Sunland Park and found his winning ways in his only outing here as he romped home in front of a good field of top allowance sprinters including Ma Jones, Ak-Sissy. Exciting Eyes and a host of others. "I watched with somewhat mixed emotions. I wa& a little proud and a little horiified." Elsie' IvIcGraw was telling us abcut the 255 game which Jimrna Pwrce rolled the other morning. It is the highest gaiViei which has been relied at Highland Hills by a woman. Elsie was proud because Jimma was one of her students'and-; .apparently'has learned her lessons pretty well. She was a little : horrified because of the competition which the future'appears to hold. We'll be the pride outweighed the horror about 100 10 1. We don't, know if:that fine sjame by Jimma had anything to do with it, but Elsie came througli with a dazzling 223 herself-Friday''night in league "play. She did it throwing a -backup'-'.bail'., and not the hook which she teacher her students. Like the mp.n says, "They don't ask how-you knocked tfiem down. They" just ask if you did knock them down. v Don Ellis At LAFB Don Ellis, one of the mere successful professional bowlers, was at Laughlin Friday to helo with the formal opening of the base bowling lanes. He bowled a four game match against Jack Farris and ffot himself beat ^ Jack told 'us ..Friday -..'-nighf that Ellis suggested he «ra.ngc his approach just slightly and it would probably help.-Jack took the suggestion and hammered home five'consecutive strikes. That's what you get from trying to:help people. We had the privilege" of trying out the new lanes at Laughlin the day the • hour* 5 uas opened. They must be pretty good because we couldn't ~ bowl any better there than anywhere else. That was the day they had free bowling and it took about 12 hours or better to get a lane. For What It's Worth Conference Slaps Limits On Scholarship Numbers By Harold V. Ratliff Associated Press Sports Writer The Southwest Conference has placed a slightly flexible limit of 100 football and 20 basketball scholarships on its athletes. This figure will be arrived at through a two-year average and it isn't likely anybodv wil! howl if a school 5003 one or two over the mark. The conference, like . most athletic organizations, always puts in some exceptions when if passes a rule. This is because all angles of ihe situation are "studied and there is no desire to penalize in cases of hardship. The limit has two reasons: economic and equalization of competition. It cost from S800 10 SI.-100 a year 10 house, feed and educate (he athlete '.van denominational schools higher than state .schools because- of more tuition. If a scntx)! gives out 520 schoiar- snips it is sp.cndine about SI50,- 000. Adding in the scholarships in oth<:r sports—which are.not being .limited—and lh« totai would run around S200.000. That"? about aii a college ca'n sfford to spt-nd-on the athletes since there are other expcnse5. like paying the coaches, maintaining stadiums, operating the non-paying sports, etc. The limit will prevent one school hogging al! the aihleic-s if it was i penalties, such as probation •' for a certain time, expulsion 1 or fine but any penalty thought ' just can be assessed. | It isn't likely that the rule will shave any effect on the way the conference members have been limiting scholarships to 100 for football and 20 for basketball on the average anyway. That's why \ those figures were selected. But i anyway, it won't bring a repeti- tion of the story that went ;he rounds during the two-platoon days: The coach asked Ihe college president for more football players. "How many do you have?"' inquired the president. "We have 88," said the coach. '"\Vell. that's eight teams, isn't it?" shot back the president- "But," wailed the coach, "we need a few substitutes." I- ' There was one change in the final results of the | men's bowling tournament ... Joe Matthews moved into | eighth place in the handicap ail events standing when I a final check was made ... Sam Wmtten said he thought i we should get his name in here somewhere, but couldn't | think why . . .- O. K. Sam., you're a eelebnty—now .
