Bolden Goes Out In Second Round By SID FEDER PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 12— (IP)— Light-heavyweight champion Gus Lesenevich was considering seriously today a fancy financial offer to defend' his crown against belting Billy Fox,, while the Pennsylvania state athletic commission accused Billy's 37th—and latest-straight knockout victim of "quitting cold-" to the young kayo specialist. •'The' offer of a flat $30,000 for Gus if. he turns back Fox's challenge and $60,000 if Billy should take the bauble away from him was made last illght after Billy flattened the vet$ran Nate Bolden in 49 seconds of the second' round of what started oil* as a ten-round bout. 'Meantime* state commission chairman Leon Rains levelled the "quitting" charge at Bolden for the manner in which he climbed on his bicycle through the first round last liight, although bloodying Billy's nose with flicking jabs, and bowed out in the second after being hit with a right on the head a considerable distance from the usually vulnerable areas around the chin.

Shortage of Gas Evident in Greco, Jack Friday Bout By WHITNEY MARTIN NEW YORK, Feb. 11— (/P)— The gas shortage seemed to be acute at Madison Square Garden the other night, feoth Beau Jack and Johnny Greco ran out of it about half way along their 10-round route with the result that what had been, until then, a ro:k 'em and sock 'em affair developed into a' fame of tag. which would have been all right except that nobody got tagged. One thing about the fight fans. They'll whoop it up during a round that seems 10 knockdowns then boo lustily if the rival warriors are too exhausted in the next round to do anything but go through the motions. When the Beau and Greco began to slow up after five or six rounds the crowd Quickly lorgot the earlier action. There were booes of all descriptions, ranging from the deep, anguished $20 booes of the ringsiders to the shrill, ;>lnintieve booes rippling down from up near the rafters. Frankly, it wasn't a $20 fight, as for $20 a man might expect to see two fighters able to go 10 rounds no matter what the pace. What he saw the last three or four rounds last Friday night, as far as action went, he could see for two-bits in a wax museum. Beau Jack was little like the animated little bundle of ring ferocity \vho carne out of Georgia a few yeai s ago to captivate the fans with his bouncing, perpetual motion style, and many a spectator went home Friday night with the idea the willing youngster's fights wqrc behind him. The spirit was there, but you just can't pile up points with a good, ytout spirit to the chin. It is granted ''.hat Greco's tactics might have had something to do with Beau's showing in the later rounds. The Canadian fighter left his corner at the opening bell and walked over to Beau and boffed him one, and threreafter kept pretty well on top of him with short, heavy body blows which leave no outward mark taut are very discouraging. Greco is a strong, rugged lad, and he at times handled Jack in close with ease, a favorite tries being to shove the Beau briskly into the ropes and paste him as he bounced back, mu:h as a man would boff a handball springing back from a wall. Jack used his pet blow, a sort of swirling right uppercut throvrtn much as a man would swing a rock on the end of a string, effectively early in the fight. It is a sharp, stinging blow rather than deadening, and until Greco figured out a defense for it his head was kept bobbins like a yes man's. On their showing last week we doubt very much that Marty Servo will have much trouble with either Ja:k of Greco, unless Servo also runs out of fuel about the fifth round He didn't have to go that far in winning the welter title from Hed Cochrane, It has been suggested that Beau Jack left his fight in the gymnasium, as the sturdy little guy in renowned for his ambitious workouts. He takes a double helping of just about everything from sparring to the medicine ball routine. If that's true they .were charging $20 at the wrong place. It should have been, at Stillman's. Aubrey Sanders Signs With Dallas Rebels DAI-LAS, Feb. 12—(/P)—Aubrey Sunders, first baseman, has signed a contract as a free agent with the Dallas Rebels of the Texas league, George Schepps, club president, announced.

YOUU FRIENDLY STATION We make a^/specially of grousing your car with extreme care. McWilliams Service Station 424 S. Cuyler Phone 37 , Amarillo To Cash Here Tonight Whether it's football, basketball,, track, tennis or ping-pong, a Pampa-Amarillo game is going to draw a cheerinlg throng of delirious fans from both sides and tonight's basketball game will be no exception. The two teams, battling it out in a Northern division, District 1-AA game, meet tonight at 8 o'clock at the Junior high gymnasium. A win for Amarillo—and it's all over for the Harvesters. A win for Pampa—and the Harvesters will be right back in the thick of the battle. Here's the situation. Air.'irillo holds two conference wins—19-14 over Pampa and 36-26 over Borger. Pampa and Borger split their games, leaving both with one win and two losses in conference play. Therefore, if Pampa is to have a shot at the Northern division crown, the Harvesters must beat Amarillo, and, Borger will also have to win from the Sandies Friday night at Borger. In that case, all three teams will have two wins and an equal number of losses, which will leave everybody right back where they started. She tie will probably be played off like this. One of the three teams will draw a bye, the other two will play one game and the winner will meet the team that drew a bye for the title Simple, isn't it? The importance of tonight's game clearly means that Mr. and Mrs. Joe Fan should get to gym by at least 7 o'clock, one hour before game time, if they expect to get a seat. The Junior high gym is small— too small to accomodate the number of fans whom the school officials; would like to see at the game. Looking over the line-ups, Coach Otis Coffey of Pampa will probablj start the five that has carried thr Harvesters through 19 games— \'t of them victories. At forwards will be Randall Olaj and Leon Gooch. Both are si> feet tall and arc' the two leading scorers for the season. Clay, playing his second year as a 'regular has scored 223 points. Gooch, r first year man, has rapidly developed into a fine forward and has 116 points to his credit. Lanky Bill Speer, who measure: 6'2", will be at his regular centei position. Speer, who played reserve last year, is one of the best center prospects ever'to take to the loca' hardwoods. He has scored 8( points this year and is expected to more than double that figure nexl year. Bernie Brown, shortest man or the starting five, and Leon Crump who beats Clay and Gooch by one inch, will be <at their regular guarc positions. Although their position.? don't favor scoring, Brown has marked up 66 points and Leon has 56. The "sixth" man on the Harvester cage team is little Charlie Laf- 'oon, shortest player on the team jaffoon, whose field goal saved tht fame for Pampa Friday night, if playing his first year on the Harvesters. A natural athlete, Laffoon also played in 90 per cenl of the "B" team's games, besides his first-string duties. Coach T. G. Hull of Amarillo whose cagers have won 14 out of 18 games, will probably start Guards Boone Pickens and Paul Carroll Forwards Jack Seale and Jimmy Carter and Center Pat Sasser. Admission for tonight's game will be 75 cents for adults and 25 cents for students and children. VALENTINE'S DANCE at SOUTHERN CLUB Thursday Night Feb. I4ih and His Orchestra Dancing 9 Til?

C. Larry Weldon, substitute quarter- ack of the Washington Redskins ho N lias been named backfield oach next year for the Eastern Dis- rict National League pro champs, ells this story about Blanchard: When Weldon was coaching the Bishopville high school team sev- ral years back, he dropped into the novies one afternoon and was shown o his seat by a husky kid. The coach's eye sized up the lad. "What's your name?" asked Welon. "Felix Blanchard" was the reply. "How old?" • "Fourteen, sir." "How much you weigh?" "About 160." Weldon let the matter: rest there, ut when, he returned home that vening he made inquiries and f-in- lly called on the boy's father, Dr. 'elix Blanchard, to get his per- nission for Junior to come out for he school team .
