(AP)-Apathy is hurting boxing and inactivity may do the same to heavyweight champion Sonny Liston, former heavy weight king Jack Sharkey says. Sharkey blames'the easy life of the times for the decline of the ring sport he loves. "It's easy to point out why bo* ing and the interest in it is fad ing," Sharkey said. "All the kids look for today is the easiest way out. When I was a kid it was nothing for me to walk two or three miles tor a loaf of bread, We were in shape in those days, we had. to be. "You can count on one hand today the number of real contenders in each division throughout the country. As a matter of fact, I bet you can't name three in each division that are strong contenders. At least I can't." How about the coming Listen- Floyd Patterson rematch in Las Vegas? "One thing stands out in my mind," Sharkey said. "This year 's layoff may have hurt Liston more than Patterson.

If you don't believe it, drop out to O. N. Custer Park tonight for "Scotty Nemeth Night." Scotty Nemeth is a Seven-year old victim of cerebral palsy. Tonight, he will be honored by the Galesburg Little League in general and Chances for Jack Nicklaus In British Open Improve LYTHAM-ST. ANNES, England (UPI)—The odds on Jack Nicklaus winning the British Open shortened from 7-1 to 5-1, today for two reasons. First, Nicklaus has been hitting the ball "out of sight" in practice rounds for the start of the 72-hole event Wednesday and, second, favored Arnold Palmer is battling a heavy cold. .Until Monday, Palmer, the popular muscle-man from Latrobe, Pa., looked like a shoo-in to win this classic for the third straight year. He still managed to shoot a one-under-par 71 in spite of the sniffles and remained the man to beat at 2-1 odds-. However, Nicklaus stole the show in Monday's practice round over the 6,757-yard Royal Latham and St. Annes Golf Club course. The Columbus, Ohio, "fat boy" was driving 360 yards at some long holes and turned in a sizzling five-under 67. Amazes Britisher Guy Wolstenholme, veteran British golfer who played in the same foursome with Palmer and Nicklaus, was amazed at big Jack's driving. "Ho left us high and dry," Wolstenholme said. "Jack must have been 100 yards ahead of me at times off the tee, He was hitting the ball out of sight." Nicklaus, oddly hasn't been too happy with his form although he has now shot 70-68-68-67 in practice rounds. "I still don't think the course suits me," he said. "I've been lucky with some of my putts, but I hate scoring 67's in practice." Crack* Priver Palmer cracked his driver in shooting a 69 in practice Saturday. He patched the club with a special cement before Monday's tuneup but refused to use this as an- excuse. "I didn't play very well but the driver was okay—only I was to blame," Arnie said- Regarding the head cold that left bis eyes watering and affected his breauyag, Palmer said: "I «eeffi to get one of these every time over here but it's not serious." In addition to Palmer and Nicklaus, other Americans who will tee off in the opening round Wednesday are Phil Rodgers, Doug Sanders, Bob Marshall, Jack Isaacs and Herman Barron, who won the World Seniors championship at the nearby Sf Annes old course Sunday.

(AP) - Jack (Doc) Kearns would approve of the commotion surrounding his death. The famed manager of ex- champion Jack Dempsey died Sunday at the age of 80. His funeral will be held at a funeral home at 3 p.m. Wednesday. Dempsey was expected to arrive in Miami today to servdd as a pallbearer. The ex-heavyweight king still called Kearns "the greatest" despite a feud that separated them. "We had a lot of laughs together and we made a lot of money," Dempsey once said. "He made me champion." Kearns helped Tex Rickard promote the fight between Dempsey and Georges Carpentier at Boyles's 30 acres in New Jersey on July 2, 1921. It turned out to be boxing's first million dollar gate. NEW YORK (UPI) — Rosey Grier, for eight years a rock of granite on the New York Giants' defensive platoon, heads west to Orange, Calif., later this week to begin pre-season training with the Los Angeles Rams. Grier, at 6-5 and 300 pounds one of the biggest players in the National Football League, was traded Monday to the Rams in exchange for another big defensive tackle, John Lovetere, plus a future draft choice. "At 31, Grier is about four years older than Lovetere," said coach Al Sherman of the Giants, although he insisted that was not the primary reason why the Eastern Division champs traded Grier to Los Angeles. Coach Harland Svare of the Rams, a former teammate of Grier's at New York, greeted the news with enthusiasm, "I think Rosey is one of the lop tackles in the league," he said. "All of his training and playing has been under the type of defense we will be teaching." Svare played linebacker behind Grier with the Giants and later McDaniel Will Try Again By JERRY gCARBROUGH OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)-About halfway through the 1957 National League baseball race, a young Oklahoma farm boy began mowing down all comers as a 17-year- old pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. Von McDaniel, less than a month out of high school, signed a |50,000 bonus contract with the Cards, and they seat him straight to the majors. In his first three appearances, VOH threw 17 straight shutout innings, including a sparkling two- hit shutout of the Dodgers. There were predictions of great things for the youngster, but misfortune lay ia the way. He 's now ai4 infielder for the Oklahoma City 89ers, the Houston Colt farm qlub in the Pacific Coast League. Von fjiushed bis rookie year with a 7-5 record and a 3.21 earned run average. Then, as he put it,. "I went to college and- studied hard. I just didn't have time to keep in shape." When spring training opened in 1958, the Cards had high hopes for Von. But he says be tried to do too much too soon. "I just needed longer to get in shape because of going to summer school. But being young, I worried about it and wound up trying to throw harder than I was capable of doing," he said. "That hurt my arm a little. But the really bad effect was a hitch it developed in my delivery. "I had a good fast ball that moved around, but-my best pitch was a curve, and I had good control and kept the ball low." Destruction of his smooth delivery ruined all that, and Von wound up in the lower minor leagues. Finally he became a third baseman, and has now worked himself back to within one step of the majors with the Treple-A 39ers. He's determined to be a pitcher again. "I've always wanted to go back to pitching," he said. "Besides, my hitting just isn't coming along good enough to make it as an infielder." He's just 24, and Von figures that's young enough to make a comeback. Grady Hatton, 89er manager, agrees. "We're working with him now," said Hatton, a 12-year veteran of the major leagues. "I plan to spot him in some relief to see how he does and give him a chance to work at it. "He's throwing harder now than he was when he hurt his arm. Von has a lot of ability, even as an infielder. It was his decision to give pitching another try and he has a great arm. He might make it." A native of Hollis, Okla., Von comes from an athletic clan. His brothers, Lindy and Kerry Don, also signed bonus contracts with the Cardinals. Lindy is pitching in relief for the Chicago Cubs, and Kerry Don, four years younger than Von, is in the minors. Houston manager Harry Craft "talked to me last winter about pitching again," Von said. "I've been hoping to pitch again all along and I'll stay with it as long as I can keep improving. I'd like to make it back up there next year." was-defensive coach before getting the job with the Rams. Los Angeles opens its training camp at Orange next Monday and. Grier, who makes his home in' New Jersey, sajd he will be ready to leave for the West Coast ip a few days. Lovetere is an inch shorter than Grier and weighs 15 pounds less. He did not see regular duty with the Rams last year, thus leading to speculation that the Giants were more interested in the draft choice they pick up from Los Angeles than in Lovetere. The Giants traded for draft choices in each of their other three deals since the end of the 1962 campaign. They are primarily interested in picking up a running back to complement their strong passing game, thus the activity in draft choices. Billie Jean Still Tops At Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) —Billie Jean Moffitt, the fireman's daughter from Long Beach, Calif., remained the darling of the staid Wimbledon tennis crowds right down to the last shot in the 1963 women's singles final, but Margaret Smith, the top-seeded Australian, went home with the crown. Miss Moffitt, the unseeded upstart who had banged her way into the final with a series of upset victories over seeded players, finally bowed to Miss Smith in the final Monday, 6-3, ; 6-4. Billie Jean had beaten Miss Smith ih the second round df the women's singles a year agoi and crowd of more than 17,000 crowded into the famed ivy-covered Center Court at Wimbledon in anticipation of a similar upset. , They cheered the bespectacled 19-year-old, even when she made errors, but a 48-hour delay because of rain apparently.. to.urt Billie Jean more thart^tilL^Mar- garet, a 5-10 strawberry blonde generally recognized as the world's top woman player. ..It wasn't a total loss for the United States, because Dariene Hard, Billie Jean's neighbor from Long Beach, teamed with Maria Bueno of Brazil to win the doubles title.
