THURSDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEH N. CState and TCU Cop Top Tournament Titles Andrews Stops Boardwalk Billy But Joe Louis Says He'i Not Rtady For Shot at Title By BEX FUNK MIAMI, Fla. WJ—Cold, methodical Paul Andrews earned a light heavyweight title fight with a spectacular sixth-round technical knockout of Boardwalk Billy Smith last night, but his new trainer. Joe Louis, says he isn't ready for it. "He's got to learn up here," the former heavyweight champion said, pointing to his head. "Paul needs a lot more work experience before he'll be ready for a champion like Archie Moore." Striae Broken It was a new Andrews who broke Smith's eight-fight winging streak with a smashing victory in 2:49 of the sixth round. The 24-year-old Buffalo, N. Y., fighter flattened Smith three times before Keferee Eddie Coachman halted the slaughter. Andrews gave full credit to Lou- Is. It was his 29th victory in 33 profession*! fight*. "He taught me how to deliver my punches," Andrews said. "He told me I was too timid and I had to get more vicious if I was going to get some place in the fight game." Foucbt Like Louie Andrews, fifth-ranking contender In the division, fought much like the old Louis as he shuffled and dead-panned, driving home punches so devastating that once Smith, daied by a left to th* jaw, turned and (led He was given an eight count as he oowered against the rop«s. The International Boxing Club had promised the winner a. Feb. 4 title fight with Moore In New York. Smith, the No. 1 title contender, said he had Andrews "analyzed wrong. I thought he was a meek and timid man and he turned out to be a tiger. I was mighty surprised."

After 25 Years Rupp Finds Secret By JIMMT BRESLIN NEA Stiff Correspondent LEXINGTON, Ky. — (NEA) — Adolph Rupp, now In his 25th year as Kentucky basketball coach, seems to have finally found the secret of winning basketball games with a, minimum wear and tear on the nervous system. Not that the Baron has been doing badly. His over-all record shows an 85.6 percentage and last year's outfit went undefeated throughout a 25-game schedule. It's just that this year's edition of the Wildcats seems to do things so much more simply. No less an authority than Ken Loeffler, coach of the defending NCAA champion, La Salle, concurs. "The Wildcats stack three guys who are 6-6 or better around the basket and take six of seven shots at i time," he notes. "One of then, goes In. They go back and give the other team one shot, grab the ball— and start all over again." In a three year supposed to be 1 rebuilding affair, Kentucky fans were presented with a club which, on any given night, is probably u fine a college team as ever has been assembled. • • • K took only five games for bas«- ketball people to begin rating this team with not only last season's Cliff Hagan-Frank Ramsey-Lou TsioropoulO! outfit, but also the once-Fabulous Five of the scandsl- smaihed Alex Orou-Rilph Be*rd tra. This year'i Kentucky outfit m»y be dumped here and there along the way, but you'll have to chalk that up to the normal hanrdi tt Playing a 24-game college schedule Rupy had, you see, a ready-made squad. All that was needed was one more big man. Lon Morris Junior College of Jacksonville, Tex., cam* to the rescue with 6-7 Bob Burrow, the "Bevo Francis of Junior College Basketball." Burrow got off to a slow itort • gainst Louisiana State, but scored with 12 of 30 ;hoU »nlr*t tough Temple and irtbbed 34 rebounds. Hi MSJUM IOM out-oMUUr on can be murderous if the defense backs off in an attempt to hold down the height problem Kentucky presents underneath. Evans is a familiar story, as far it Kentucky is concerned. This Is his fifth year in the school. He is Ineligible to compete in the NCAA tournament, as wer« Hagan and Company last year. This shouldn't bother Hupp too much. All he has to do is reach along the bench and pluck off somebody like Gayle Rose, a senior who would star at 300 other schools. Rupp, of course, Is the last guy to admit all this. "We have a long way to go," he says, then quickly goes into accolades about last season's team. The Baron maintains that was his greatest. This season is merely a rebuilding year, he professes to believe. . Nor does Adolph Rupp talk about the usual Kentucky freshman team Harry Lancaster is schooling. Five members of that outfit are 6-5 or better. But they of course, have » long way to go—four whole years before they graduate. TOWERING — Phil Grawemeyer, 6-T.4 southpaw, helps Kentucky hit the other side from •11 angles. (NEA) With Burrows, Rupp put veteran Jerry Bird, 6-6, underneath. Southpaw Phil Orawmeyer, 6-714, helps off the boards. Orasvmeyer has a fine outside shot to boot. • • « Mil Kvam and Llnvtlle Puckett koM tan ttM tack tourt Kvtnt East and West Teams Ready SAN FRANCISCO IIP)— With each coach Insisting his team U ready, East and West squads were scheduled for only sweat-suit sessions before the 30th renew*! of the Shrine charity football game here Saturday.

DOBB8, Mayor. 12/IO-l/t-lJ-JO Here's How Bowl Swag Is Split NEW ORLEANS-(AP) —, Ever wonder about what be- comes.of the .receipts taken in at a major New Year's football bowl game? The National Collegiate Athletic Assn. has a set of rules on how the money is divided and how the tickets are distributed If the bowl game Involves a member college. So let's take the expected figures for Saturday's Sugar Bowl game here, in which Navy and Mississippi will compete, as an example. Includes All Money The total cash receipts, which Includes money from ticket sales, programs, hot dogs, radio and TV rights, will approach the half- million mark. First come the taxes. Uncle Sam gets 51 cents for every $6 seat, the city of New Orleans 36 cents and the state of Louisiana 18 cents. Their aggregate will be about $41,000 to the United States, $21,000 to the city and $12,000 to the state. Of the remainder, the NCAA rules permit the sponsoring organ- will be roughtly sns.OOO and out(~ of this the Sugar Bowl fathers make a voluntary gift of $25.000 to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The rest goes for operating expenses. If the sponsoring group is. not involved In any stadium indebtedness, all the remaining 75 per cent must be distributed to the two competing colleges. However. If there is a stadium debt, the NCAA allows the sponsoring group to tnke another 20 per cent for payment on such debts with the remaining 55 per cent going to the two teams. Still In Debt The Sugar Bowl people still owe for enlarging Tulane Stadium to about 81.000 seats so another, estimated $100.000 Is taken out of the pot. That leaves 55 per cent, or about $320,000, to be split equally between Navy and Mississippi. Navy has said its. cut of the melon will go to the Navy athletic department. Mississippi Is committed by a Southeastern Conference rule to izatlon to keep 25 per cent. That I pay that circuit $25.000. Buckeyes, USC In Final Stage PASADENA. Calif. Ml — Ohio State and Southern California started the easy, downhill gild* today toward Saturday's 41st BOM Bowl game. Only tapering-off and loosening- up drills were on tap as the clubs wound up two weeks of intensive weight-shedding and precision priming workouts. Alter yesterday's sessions Coach Jess Hill of the Trojans and Woody Hayes of Ohio's Big Ten »nd na- . tlonal champs observed: "Well, that's it. We're as i»»47 as we'll ever be." Both coaches said they would field practically full-strength olubl. Bernle A. Shively.

This new gasoline contains TCP*, the Shell-developed additive which overcomes the greatest cause pf power loss in the majority of cars on the road today. A year ago TCP additive was introduced in Shell Premium Gasoline exclusively. Its acceptance has proved that TCP is indeed the greatest gasoline development since tile introduction of tetraethyl lead. New Shell Gasoline (regular grade)—now with TCP—benefits engine performance in two ways. First, by "fireproofing" combustion chamber deposits, it effectively controls pre-ignition. Second, by changing the deposits on the spark plugs to non-conductor* of electricity, TCP additive stops misfiring. Each plug fires as it should, preventing fuel waste. Gives performance never before possible with regular grade fuel By correcting these engine troubles, Shell Gasoline (regular grade) with TCP gives an increase in acceleration, in smoothness of engine operation and in mileage. Because engine deposits form constantly, continued use of Shell Gasoline (regular grade) with TCP is essential to retain its benefits.
