THE TROY RECORD, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 19, 1956 31 -Points To Half Million Gate Plans Tournament To Find Rock's Foe New York (AP)--Promoter Jim Norris yesterday revealed plans for a series of heavyweight elimination bouts to provide a September challenger for Champion Rocky Marciano--or a new champ if Marciano retires. Norris, president of the International Boxing Club, patched up his differences with Al Weill, Marciano's manager, at a ''peace dinner" Tuesday night. He is awaiting a meeting between Wcill and Marciano scheduled for tomorrow at Macon, Ga., before taking any positive steps. ; ''There is a feeling around that ··· Kocky may retire," said Norris. t "I don't share that feeling. Our ^ position is this. If we can show Rocky where he can draw a $50,000 gate in September, we think he will fight. It is up to us to · come up with a good challenger. We expect a definite word from Rocky within 10 days." Norris mentioned a May 9 match at Miami between Johnny - Holman and Bob Baker as one in a series of eliminations. He t a id he would try to make a Floyd Patterson-Hurricane Jackson fight *s soon as he knows definitely ·what Marciano will do. He also said ATtWe Moore, the Maryland ^Scolds' Trainer Laurel, Md.

He seemed particularly high on Machen who · whipped Julio Mederos and Nino Valdcs among the contenders. "Fwant Al Weill to say to me 'look, I've been with Rocky and he definitely will defend in September if you come up with a real contender.' "Last night I had dinner with Weill and we discussed some of the matches I have been talking about. He said he thought the should produce a challenger i: Rocky decided to fight." Weill, preparing to leave toda for Macon where Marciano making an appearance tomorrow, said he was delaying everything until he talked with the champ. Plans Rocky Confab. "I want to talk to Rocky to sec what all this retirement stuff is about," said Weill. I don't know how he feels. Maybe he feels he don't want to fight any more. I'll go along with Rocky. If he wants to retire nobody could change him and I wouldn't try. "Jim and I had dinner last night, the first time we've talked 3n months. Nothing definite was 'decided. We've still got a few : things to discuss." : One of the "few things" could be an exclusive contract with the IBC. The exclusive on Rocky ran out Sept. 19 the day before Marciano's last defense against : Moore. Norris said his differences with · Weill had resulted from his decision to sell the Mobile Theater · Television rights for 75 cents a · head instead of $1. "Weill thought we shouldn't have sold for less than $1," said Norris. "Instead of talking it over after the fight, he went his way concluded any laxity was among own employes and not on the part of Laurel. Feltner reported April 6 that he horse One Throw had been njured intentionally during the night. He scratched the horse from a race that afternoon at nearby Bowie in which he was the early favorite. Feltner said someone had removed a bandage and protective leather boot from the horse's right foreleg and hit him with something like a hammer. Henry H. Hecht, Baltimore owner of the horse, insisted that the commission conduct a complete investigation. It held two hearings and was assisted in an investigation by the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. Rinehart said the commission found testimony of Feltner's em- ployes contradictory. He warned the trainer that "any charges like this will have to be well backed up" in the future. Rinehart said the commission couldn't locate Hccht to invite him to the meeting yesterday.

Heydler, 86, former president of the National Baseball League, died yesterday at a suburban rest home where he lived for the last several years as a virtual invalid. He had poor health and eyesight. He leaves his wife who was with him when he died. Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. tomorrow. Heydler was actively associated with professional baseball for 50 years and was president of the National League from 1918 to 1934. He was made honorary board chairman for life when he retired because of failing health. He was considered one of the most forceful leaders the league I h a s had. It was largely through his influence that Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis was made the first commissioner of the game to settle its difficulties and rule it with an iron-hand. He moved to Southern California in 1946 with Mrs. Heydler, whom he married in 1394. His health continued to fail but he was able to attend the 1951 baseball meeting in New York. Heydler applauded the switch of the Boston Braves to Milwau- othcr game is booked in the meantime. The Indian diamond squad lost its opener at RPI, 6-2.

The City P l a n n i n g Commission ppproved a -/.oning amendment yesterday which would permit conslruclion of race tracks in zoned areas. Previously this was allowed only in unrestricted districts. The Legislature this year approved a measure permitting the consolidation of flat racing tracks in the state u n d e r one ownership.

Dcfcnscman Don Uergmann has a hip i n j u r y and is expected to be out for about two weeks. Midfielder Doux Edwards, tabbed by his coach as "iniprov very fast" is also sidelined v i l h an i n j u r y , suffered in the lobari game. Harkncss had his squad brush- ig up on its passing and clear- tig d u r i n g yesterday's workout in the rain. He voiced some concern over "meeting all of these learns w i t h /one defenses." Not so much because the Engineers have trouble against a /one (they usually murder t h i s stagnant fur- mation) but they have no clvnncc lo employ their own f a s t - m o v i n g man for man in p met ices. " I ' v e been spending most of raont. The other tracks are Jamaica find Saratoga. our scrimmage time with our defense using a xonc, so the offense can work against it.

"That's just about $10,000 loss t h a n the actual net Kale of $1(10,728 shown in the State Athletic Commission's report." State boxing regulations, Cox said, provide t h a t the net on any £ n t o shall be figured on the bash of the gross less only state snd federal taxes.

"Without s t a t i n g thr source of his figures, Cox said Marciano was to receive 40 per cent of the net Kate, or $(57,801.20. "Actually," Cox continued, "all M a r c i a n o got was $03,720.64.

Heydler helped bring baseball through the notorious "Blade Sox" scandal of 1919, when gamblers' bribes to World Scries players placed the sport in peril of losing public confidence. The appointment of Landis as the first commissioner resulted from that scandal. Heydler favored Landis, a federal judge with a strong personality. Ban Johnson, American League president, wanted someone connected with the game. Heydler won only after the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees threatened to withdraw from Johnson's league and cast i their lot with the National. 1. FREE LAWN ROTO SPREADER with 10 or 25 Ib.
