10 Monday, Aug. 12, 1963 AAU Swimmers Head For Japan Bruised Fullmer Undecided i On Retirement After TKO ! CHICAGO (if—A U.S. national swimming and diving contingent, having captured nearly all the titles in the national AAU championships which ended yesterday, heads for a tour of Japan this week. The squad of 16 swimmers and diver Larry Andreasen will arrive in Japan, scene of the 1964 Olympics, tomorrow to compete against a Japanese team for two weeks. With the exception of Tom Stock and Ted Stickles, both of the powerful Indianapolis Athletic Club, every sw-immcr winning an AAU title in Oak Park over the weekend is represented on the touring team coached by Ralph Casey of Southern Illionis University and managed by Ken Treadway of Bartlesville, Okla. TIME FOR STUDIES Stock, wanner of the 200- meter backstroke, and Stickles, the 400-meter individual medley champion, asked to be left off the team in order to devote the time to their studies at Indiana University. Andreasen. a 17-year-old diver from Anaheim, and winner of the three-meter springboard competition, was chosen over Lt. Tom Gompf, an Air Force jet fighter pilot who captured the 10-meter platform event and finished a narrow 10 points ahead of Andreasen. The team includes such record breakers as Don Schol- lander of Santa Clara, whose 4:17.7 in the 400-meter freestyle established an American citizen’s record; Carl Robie of the Vesper Boat Club of Philadelphia who bettered his own American and meet record in the 200-meter butterfly with 2:08.8; and Steve Clark of the Santa Clara Swim Club who surpassed his own American! medley champion from Santa j pher SC, Minn , winner of the and meet record in the 100-!

From what second-unit quarterback Tom Flores showed yesterday, Davis is absolutely right. After starter Cotton Davidson did a creditable job in leading the Raiders to a 14-6 halftime lead over Denver, Flores assumed the controls and finished carving out an impressive 35-19 victory—the second in two games for the rejuvenated Oaklanders. “He became a little too deliberate toward the end,” said Davis of Flores. “But he was okay. He really pinpointed his passes.” Flores pinpointed them so well he completed 13 of 16 for 193 yards and two touchdowns, and quickly gave the Raiders an insurmountable 28-6 lead Last year Oakland won only | twice during the entire exhibition and regular season. On the first play of a series midway through the third period, Flores spotted Bo Roberson at the Denver 10. Roberson fell as he caught the pass, but scrambled to his feet and scored on the 59-yard play A 20-yard pass from Flores to Art Powell and a 14-yarder to Roberson helped the Raiders move from their 35 to the Bronco 25 in five plays and then Powell shook loose in the end zone and grabbed a 25- i yarder for the touchdown. The former University of the Pacific quarterback’s pcrform- ! ancc was all the more lmprcs- i sive since it was his first ma' jcr test since 1961. Flores sat ! out last year with a lung ailment, then could play only briefly last week when Oakland beat Boston 24-17 because he lost a contact lens and had no spare. Davidson actually started the long-pass scoring in the second period when he Mrs. May Wins North Bay Golf Mrs. William May shot an 85 to take low gross honors yesterday at Indian Valley Golf | Club, where the North Bay j Women’s Golf Assn. held a tournament.

The former Olympic Games broad jumper took the pass at Denver’s 25 and easily outraccd converging defenders. Clem Daniels scored Oakland's first touchdown with a 34-yard sprint in the first period and Joe Krakoski tallied the last when, on the final play of the game, he intercepted a George Shaw pass and darted 12 yards. Gene Mingo kicked first period field goals of 12 and 48 yards for Denver. Al Frazier ran the kickoff back 99 yards after Flores' second touchdown throw and an Oakland fumble at the 16 led to a Denver six- pointer in the final quarter. Thus, the surprisingly stout Raider defense led by middle linebacker Arch Matsos has not. yet. permitted a lengthy touchdown drive by the opposition Said Davis: “What pleased me most, generally, was our continuity.

Winding up Sunday’s AAU competition, Roth upset Stickles in the 200-meter individual medley. Roth’s 2:16.0 was 1.9 seconds better than Stickles’ second-place finish and only one-tenth of a second off the meet and American record of 2:15.9, both held by Stickles. The Indianapolis AC won the team title for the seventh straight year with 106 12 points. The Santa Clara and Ivos Angeles clubs tied for second with 45 each.

Bos 108417 48 125 300 NEW YORK W — Gene Fullmer, mauled, bruised and badly beaten in his effort to regain the world middleweight boxing title, returned to the United States to mull over the pos* sibility of retirement. “I have no plans for retiring and no plans for going on.” Fullmer said last night en route to his home in West Jordan, Utah. “I’m going to talk it over with my family.” The 32-year-o!d fighting Mormon was cut and battered and drenched with his own blood 1 Saturday before suffering a seventh-round TKO at the bands of champion Dick Tiger in Ibadan. Nigeria. WIFE SAYS OUT His wife. Delores, said in West Jordan shortly after the fight that she hoped Gene, a (Tormer champion, would call it quits. Mrs. Fullmer, who has refused to watch her husband fight, repeated that he had promised to retire if he failed to beat the Nigerian champion. “He was a great champion, ’ Mrs. Fullmer said of her husband, “but we feel he should quit now.” The fight, the first title bout ever held in Nigeria, was scheduled for 15 rounds but Marv Jenson, Fullmer’s manager, asked that it be stopped at the end of the seventh when the bleeding Fullmer was virtually defenseless against Tiger’s two-handed attack. “I wanted to stop it in the fifth,” Jenson said, “But Gene insisted on going on.” i There were no knockdowns, but Fullmer was cut over the bridge of the nose and blinded in the latter rounds by a freely bleeding cut over the right eye, red welts and the bruises still showed on his face yesterday. Pitching To Dominate In S. A. Tourney Pitching is expected to dominate when play begins tomorrow night in the fourth annual San Anselmo Invitational Softball Tournament. Earl Lowe of Country Club 1 Bowl and Bob Wade of Old j Mill Tavern will duel in the 1 tournament opener at 6:30 p.m. at San Anselmo’s Memorial Park. ! Lowe and Wade are just two of the outstanding hurlers expected to see action in the tourney. Bob Brown (Fairchild), Jay Leatherwmod and Lou Perazzo (Sohner Tree Service), Denny Langford (Two-Rock Army) and Dick Johnson (North Bay Flag) are all rated among the top pitchers in the Bay Area. Bob Gajda of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., took only 29 putts w'hen he shot a 69 to lead the first round of the USGA Open this year. “I guess he caught me a couple of times in the early ;ounds which must h .\e knocked the sharpness out of me.” Fullmer said. “But right until the end I thought I had a chance.’’ EVERY ROUND The British referee, the onlv : official, declined to say how he had scored the fight but the Associated Press had Tiger winning every round. The Nigarian government underwrote the bout, pu’ting up $280.000 in guarantees. ¡Fullmer was guaranteed $50,. 000 and $10.000 in expenses and Tiger 8100,000. The fight was the third between Tiger and Fullmer. Tiger : lifted the title from Gene with a 15-round decision in San Francisco last year and they fought to a 15-round draw in Las Vegas earlier this year.
