Hidden manipulators Senator says time is running out on boxing WASHINGTON (UPI)-Senate investigators were told today that Sonny Liston signed over $100,000 worth of the profits from his losing heavyweight title bout with Cassius Clay to Sara Margolis, a Philadelphia vending machine operator. Garland D. Cherry, a young Chester, Pa., lawyer, said Liston directed that Margolis be given more than half his shares in Inter-Continental Promotions, Inc., which promoted the February bout Cherry, secretary of Intercontinental, was the lead - off witness as the Senate anti-trust subcommittee began an investigation of the contract arrangements involved in the fight. A key factor was the payment of $50,000 to Clay by Inter-Continental for the exclusive rights to promote his next bout. Both Chairman Phillip A. Hart, D-Mich., and Sen. Kenneth B. Keating, R-N.Y., castigated the present boxing situation. Hart declared that the sport has become "the object of general public disrespect and distrust." He added that public confidence is clearly on the decrease and "time is running out for bo.xing." Principals in the syndicate surrounding and managing Lis­ ten were the first ^heduled wit- .nesses. Hart said the subcom- {mittee chiefly was interested in reports that the group, in which Liston also is a partner, had a contract before the Miami Beach bout to control Clay's next fight if he wrested the crown from Liston. Called to testify were Lisfon's manager. Jack NUon; Garland D. Cherry, also of Chester. Pa. and secretary of Inter-Continen- !tal Promotions. Inc., and Delaware Advertising and Management Agency, Inc.; Nilon's brother, Robert, executive vice president of Inter-continental; Salvatore Avena of Camden, N.J., and Sam Margolis of Phil- .adelphia, two other principals I of Inter-Continental. Neither Clay nor Liston will be called. Hart said he did not think either the inarticulate Lis ton nor the talkative Clay could say anything belpfuL But the subcommittee Monday added Edward Lassman of Mi ami Beach, president of the World Boxing Association, to its witness list. He is expected to testify Thursday. The WBA is threatening to revoke Clay's title because of his public con duct since the Liston fight. The subcommittee also will hear—probably Wednesday — from Gordon B. Da\-idson, attorney for the Louisville group 'financing Clay.

Fielder scored 17 goals and added a league-leading 83 assists to total 102 points, fourth time in his Western Hockey League career he has surpassed 100 points. Portland bad boy Mike Don aldson, who likes to stand up and slug it out with other players, spent 226 minutes—almost four full games—sitting in the sin bin. He thus surpassed the former mark of 210 minutes held by Frank Amett, who set the mark I with SeatUe in 1958-59 but now plays for Los Angeles. Donaldson had 78 mmor pen allies, six major, three mis I conducts and one game misconduct. Portland centerman Art Jones edged Norm Johnson of Los [Angeles for second place to Fielder in the scoring, 87 - 86, with Denver's Lous Jankowski fourth at 85 and Phil Maloney lof Vancouver fifth at 81. Jankowski's 41 goals topped second-place Buddy Boone of Seattle by three. Denver's Al Millar chalked up four shutouts on the way to leading the goalies with a 2.83 average. Portland rookie Dave Kelly took second with a 3.10 average. In one final disciplinary note the league fined Mike Corbett of Denver SlOO for his actions in the Invaders' final regular season game Sunday at Portland. Corbett was accused of instigating a fight with Donaldson and showing complete dis regard and disrespect for offi Icials attempting to restrain him.

The next spring Alston brought in another so-called busher, Becker, as pitching coach and the Dodgers' pitching started to hum. Becker, now 51, is a quiet, but hard-bitten man who knows how to handle men, particularly those who throw hard. "Joe is a wonderful instructor and a driver who works as hard getting and keeping the pitchers in shape as they do," says Alston. "When Joe warms up a pitcher and tells me he's ready, you can bet he is." Ask any Dodgers pitcher what makes Becker a fine coach and he'll tell you: "He makes you work.
