' ii • • ., •: CLEVELAND (/P) —Declaring he did not want '\ cloud on Ohio boding," Coroner Samuel J. Gerber today promised a complete investigation of the death of Jimmy Doyle, 22-year-old californian who never regained consciousness after being knocked out by welter-weight champion Ray (Sugar) Robinson in the eighth round of a title fight at the arena here Tuesday night. "A great deal of unholy pressure has been put on me to divert this Investigation," said Dr. Gerber. "I am going to make a complete investigation, I will talk to anyone who had anything to do with this." Dr. Gerber. did not elaborate on \vhat he meant by pressure. The coroner opened his probe last night by questioning Robinson, his manager^ George Gainford, and tv;o ether handlers of the champion. Robinson was accused ..during question by Dr. Gerber of being "evasive," so was Gainford, later. "This is an unfortunate incident, .and you are not to blame," the coroner said to Robinson. "But I want to know Doyle's condition as observed by. laymen. And I want to arrive at a conclusion without pressure from any body. I don't want a cloud on Ohio boxing." His questioning led along three major lines: ."Was Doyle really fit and the right opponent for the welterweight champion of the world?" "Was Doyle's earlier brain injury shown in paralysis of one eyelid or parts of his body?" "Was the floor of the ring properly padded?" Robinson.denied he thought Dcyle an unworthy opponent, He .denied having a votod in picking Doyle. He denied taking Doyle's. Injury last year, into his fighting strategy, Robinson said he would come in to sign, the stenographer's typed transcript of his testimony today and would remain here lor further questioning. He was not put under charges nor was bond . fixed. Doyle was knocked out when he stepped.into a stiff left hook and died of fc, brain injury 17 hoars later in Charity Hospital.: :The old wounds in his brain tissue .were inflicted March 11, 1946, when middleweight Artie Lcvinc's blows.sent.-tlm phicky Los Angeles boxer to the same hospital, Dr. Gerber reported "Doyle died from a cerebral hemmorhage, there was general hermorrhage in the brain, considerable in the pack of the brain. There was .concussion also. "His head striking the ring floor may have added to the damage. But the blow to the jaw or (ace vas the cause of the injury to the brain. The evidence of the old brain injuries are tnere."

One of them, Dan Dworsky, likely will be converted into a center, which should make the Wolverines very tough o'.i defense—still they're not looking for- svard with any great flee to the Minnesota game, for the reports are that Bernie Bierman will have plenty of the stuff that breaks the scales — Oklahoma's basketballer won't appear in Madison.

Calif.—i^—This i« an anniversary for Sammy Bradford, who lost his legs on Okinawa before he was old enough to voto. Two years ago today he entered the -Navy Amputee Rehabilitation Hospital here to learn how to walk (again. He's still in thn hospital, and he's still trying to learn how to get around on his new "store legs." Veterans who lost both legs below the knee can't graduate from the amputee training center until they can stroll away on their artificial underpinning without using a cane. "I guess I won't, bo quite able to do that," said Sammy. He's .what, the doctors call "a bilateral A. K. CMC." That's medical shorthand for a man who-has lost both-legs above the knee. He has a rougher problem. Sammy doesn't know for sure just what happened to him. He was t3 yearr, old when he joined the Marines at Smyrna, Ga. He was 19 when he landed on Okinawa, where he fought as a rifleman for 45 days. "I was going up Sugar Loaf Hill one morning," he said. "You remember Sugar Loaf Hill? I guess everybody remembers thnt one. All of a .sudden I went down. I don't, know whether I stepped on a mine or a mortar got me. Everything wss I These Low Prices Good Friday and Saturday hazy and I hurt all over. I guess 111 never know." But his right Ipg was gone, anfl six days later Navy doctors had to fake off the spattered left, limb. The bones became infected. He had to undergo four move operation.-. When Uir bon-j infection clfarcd up, Sammy had only four-inch stumps left. "They were so short they came right out of the buckets when I tried to walk," hts aid. The "buckets" arc the aperuires of artificial legs into which the stumps fit. But the amputee center 'later developed a suction type "'bucket" and Sammy has had bettor luck with artificial legs equipped with it. "I've been practising with the new suction buckets .since last March." he said. I can drive a car and I'm talking a lot better. I practice an hour every morning and an hour and a, half in the evening. "I can walk ten feet, between the parallel bars without holding on. The longest I've had my legs on lately is three hours. I have to be able to keep them on eight hours before I leave." Both the Netherlands Indies and the Philippine number more than 7,000 islands. Pampa News, Thursday, June 26, 1947 PAGE 11 Ccnnally 'Lilile Leary' Of New Oil Agreement WASHINGTON—(/P)—Sen. Tom Connnlly (D-Tex) told a foreign relations committee meeting licrc yesterday that the Anglo-Arnnrican oil agreement awaiting Senate ratification contains language, "so flexible and elastic and nebulous that I'm a little leary of it." The Texan said "you get a bunch of smart Britishers around a table and they say a clause means one thing and we say it means another, and you've got a row." IT'S AN OAT BAG The haversack in which soldiers carry their food rations while on the march really means a bag for carrying oats. The name comes from the French "havre sac." or oat sack.
