Liston sued for breach of contract DENVER (UPI) — Former world heavyweight boxing champion and ex-convict Sonny Liston, caught speeding down a Denver boulevard with a pistol in his pocket, today faced the possibility of a 10-year nris on. term under a Colorado law. Liston, who lost his heavyweight crown to Cassius Clay two weeks ago, also received more bad news Wednesday when he was sued for $1,150,000 for breach of contract. Last week, Liston's formeri publicity manager, Ben Bently, sued him in Chicago for back pay. Liston ser\'ed two terms on felony charges in Missouri in the 1950s, totaling more than three years. Denver police said they had asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington to forward Liston's police record to Denver. Determining Law Detective Harry Wolfer said officers were trying to determine whether a concealed weapon charge filed against Liston Tuesday constitutes felony under a Colorado 1 a w passed by the Colorado Legisla ture in 1963. The law provides felony charges may be filed against a convicted felon found to be carrying a weapon. Conviction carries a 2-10 year sentence. Liston served a term in the Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferjon City from May, 1950, to Oct., 1952, on first degree robbery charges, and a nine- month sentence in the Missouri County Workhouse after pleading guilty to assault to kill. Several hours after Liston freed himself from Denver- jail by posting $300 bond, he learned of the breach of con tract suit filed in New York Supreme Court by his former manager, George Katz. Attach Assets Katz alleged Liston owed him $150,000 as a share of Liston's earnings through October, 1963 The court allowed Katz to at tach up to $100,000 of any as sets LJston might have in New York. BenOey's suit alleged Lis ton owed him $116,000 in back pay. The Denver charges filed against Liston included careless and reckless driving, speedmg 76 miles an a 30-mile- pcr-hour 2one, driving without a valid operator's permit, and carrj'ing a loaded 22 - caUber pistol. By JULIUS BOROS DloPEN CHAMPION THE GRIP Most people don't realize it, but the primary difference be twcen a good golfer and a bad one lies in the grip — probably the most basic element of any player's game. Without a sound grip, your chances of ever becoming good golfer arc quite remote. There are several ways to hold a golf club. For instance, the 10-finger grip — also some times tagged the baseball grip —finds all fingers on the club with the thumb of the left hand snuggUng into the palm of the right. Until two weeks before the 1952 U.S. Open, I employed the overlapping grip. This grip finds the litUe finger of the right hand lapping over the forefinger of the left Then one day I hit a few shots using the interlocking grip which found the forefinger of my left hand lying over and locking with the little finger of my lower hand. This grip felt so good to me that I used it m the Open — which I won. I stayed with the interlocking grip until 1960. Then my THIS GRIP finds (he litUe finger of (he right hand lapping over the forefinger of the left. knuckles and fingers — especially those that interlocked — began to feel strained. I found also that this grip was causing me to fade the ball to the right. In 1960 I switched back to the overlapping grip which I now use and recommend. iFrom the book.

(UPD- Slugging outfielder Frank Howard of the Los Angeles Dodgers today announced his retirement from baseball in a letter to General Manager E. J. Buzzie Bavasi. "I have been quite serious about quitting smce last fall, Howard continued in his letter. "I'm sorry I waited so long but I wanted to be sure of my final decision. I know I won't make anywhere near as much money outside of baseball but money isn't the cure for all iUs." Howard and Bavasi had stated in negotiations in spring that the big outfielder's prolonged holdout was strictly a "personal matter." Club President Walter O'Malley said that he hoped Howard will change his mind. He conceded Howard's decision was a blow ta the team's hopes of winning the National League Pennant again but added, "Uiese things happen in base- baU." HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - A musical composition emphasizing the relationship of jazz to people provided a joyful exper ience Wednesday night on the season's final Leonard Bern stein television concert for youngsters. The series of four CBS-TV programs, which will return next season, had "Jazz in the Concert Hall" as the theme of its windup hour. And the program started right off with the composition that apoeared to delight musicians and audience as well, undoubtedly, as view ers: "Journey into Jazz," an introduction to the subject for youngsters, with a charming narrative accompanying the passages. The narrative was wTitten by jazz critic Nat Hentoff, and de livered by Bernstein, who turned the conducting over to the young American composer of the piece, Gunther Schuller. Bernstein, who has an enviable way of humanizing his programs, added a warm touch before the selection began. by introducing SchuUer's father, a member of the New York Philharmonic which then played the composition. It would have taken a hard man to resist the contagious fun of the occasion as expressed by the violinist who sat behind Bernstein and couldn't stop smiling as t h e piece and the story progressed. The second selection was yet another treat. Aaron Copland, the composer - conductor - pianist, was on hand to play his Concerto for Piano and Orch- estira," which he wrote in the 1920s and which reflected the theme of Wednesday night's program in its pioneering spirit of an earlier era. Bernstein finished off the evening by presenting work by another young man Larry Austin, an assistant pro fessor of music at the Univer sity of California. The composi don was called "Improvisations for Orchestra and Jazz Solo ists," and it culminated in furious, hair - raising finish that is best left to the music critics to describe. Some viewers and members of the young audience may have been be wildered and devastated by this piece, but never let it be said that Bernstein is afraid to expose listeners to the excitement of experiment and daring. He is a good m a n to trust Uie kids with.

Griffith, Duran escape barrage of l)ottles ROME (UPI) - Welterweight champion Eraile Griffith and Argentina's Juan Carlos Duran, lucky escapees from the barrage of botUes and other objects during their riotous "no-contest" fight, today awaited possible action by Italy's boxing federation. Whether their purses would be held up pending an investigation was not immediately known, following the "suspension" of their scheduled 10- round bout at 2:47 of the seventh round Wednesday night in Rome's Palace of Sport. Referee Fernando Pica suspended the bout when the barrages of bottles, tomatoes, eggs, potatoes and other mis siles from the booing 12,000 spectators threatened injury to the Ixixers and himself. He did not name a winner. Griffith of New York was not risking his 147-pound crown, for he and Duran scaled above that weight limit. Emile weighed l54Vi pounds; Duran, 154 =4. Griffith angrily blamed the referee for his many warnings against "butting and fighting witii my head low." The champion claimed the referee apparently forgot Uiat "I am a good sLx inches shorter than Duran." IN HOLLYWOOD Eddie's fracMed friend has a'p!

CUTTING NEW TOOTH ALCOY, Spain (UPI) - Mrs. Pilar Carbonell was very surprised when she opened her mouth, looked in the mirror and saw she was cutting a new tooUi. She is 92 years old. By United Press International Rookie goaltender Dave Kelly of the Portland Buckaroos had gone more than 120 minutes without giving up a score today. He turned in his second con secutive shutout Wednesday night to the delight of 5,687 Buckaroo fans as Portland shut out San Francisco, 4-0 in a Western Hockey League battle. Los Angeles meanwhile kept pace with Portland by handing Vancouver an 8-2 thumping. Both Portland and Los -Angeles seem likely to wind up in the playoffs now along with Denver. The Bucks and Blades are tied for second with 66 points apiece. San Francisco has 61 points and Seattie 60, but the Totems have played two fewer games than the Seals and would seem to have the upper hand in the struggle for the fourth playoff slot. The Seals are at Seattie Friday in a big batUe. In Wednesday's whitewash at Portland, Kelly had to block but 22 shots as the Seals had a hard time getting their offense going. Dick Van Impe and Dallas Smith scored first period Portland tallies and Doug Jlessier and -Archie Schmautz added two clinchers in the final stanza. Los Angeles built up a 4-1 lead over Vancouver after (he first period and coasted home. The Blades offense was a real juggernaut as Jtarcel Paille of tiie Canucks blocked 45 shots as well as letting eight get by. Norm Johnson and Stan Maxwell led the Los Angeles stam pede with a pair of goals each. Motiier nice crowd of 7,102 turned out at Los Angeles for that one. Howie Young, former "bad boy" of the National Hockey League, gave the crowd a laugb by turning up before the game wearing a Beatle \vig. Just before face off, he jerked the wig off and threw it into the stands, revealing a new Mohawk haircut. ACAPULCO, Mexico — (NEA) — Stefanic Powers' freckles are breaking out all over. " So are news items about the zippy miss who appears to be Eddie Fisher's new all-American girL But it. isn't the freckles on her face—and some of her freckles even have freckles — that remind you of Eddie's first love, Debbie Reynolds. What reminds you is Stefanie's chatter. It is sharp, fast and long playing, just like Debbie's. It is also witty, just like Debbie's. Like Stefanie is saying as she sits in a modest-miss-type sun dress (just like Debbie of yore) at a luncheon table overlooking Acapulco Bay: "You know what I told Ed die the oUier day? I said, 'It's funny, dad. When you first made a hit singing "Oh, My Pappa" I was riding a tricycle.' Imagine that?" "Eddie likes Uiem," Holly wood-bom and raised Miss Powers said about the freckles her make-up man is learning to hate. He has been ordered to keep most of them covered for her role in the locationing "Love Has Many Faces." But under the tropical sun of this resort the freckles pop out even while she's in a scene. The make-up lad may run out of make-up before Stefanie runs out of new freckles, it appears. But on her face they seem appropriate, matching her peppery Ulfc. It ranges from Eddie to what a girl should wear while fighting a bull. ... , She plays it a little coy about Eddie but she is high-spirited enough to quip: "Wouldn't it be funny if we rented THAT same villa in Puerto Vallarta?" A bullfight in the film had brought several Mexican matadors to Acapulco as technical experts. She had accompanied them to a nearby ranch- erio to wintess a "tienta," the testing of the young bulls. In her enthusiasm she had jomed in. To producer Jerry Bresler's horror, she had even faced a 600-ppund charger for a couple of passes. "It was exciting." she said. "The same bull once broke a girl's nose." Hugh O'Brian is slated for a "tienta" scene and "he's asked me to teach him a few passes," she laughs. A gal teaching Hugh passes will be quite a novelty. This Stefanie doll, it appears, is as good a press agent as she is an.actress. She's adaptable, at least. ^Vhen touch football came to the American scene she became addicited.
