Dorazio Accused Of Taking 'Dive 1 Senator Calls For Probe Of "Bomber's Win Feb. that 18— flat- Challedon Shows Speed In Turf Test; Whirlaway's Stock Drops H ARRISBURG, Pa., (AP)—The wallop tened Gus Dorazio echoed in the Pennsylvania senate tonight amid a shrill accusation that Gus "took a perfect dive" for Joe Louis and a call for an inquiry by the senators themselves. - Cried Sen. John J. Haluska, back in legislative halls after a night out in which he saw the pride of South Philadelphia fold under the Louis gloves in the second round: * "We should investigate to determine if possible who was responsible for such a farce." He said that he knew a. "perfect dive" when he saw one. He used to ba a boxer. Joe Martino, manager of Dorazio, retorted: "The senator is either blind or crazy." He added that nothing would give him greater pleasure than to watch "one of those senators take a punch like the one Louis threw at Dorazio." jSenatorBaluska's demand for an inquiry and his cry of "Frame-up" came as no great surprise. He was among a delegation of senators who •watched the fight as guests of Sen. H. Jerome Jaspan. Senator Jaspan has pending a resolution to investigate the Pennsylvania athletic commission. The senate judiciary committee has referred the resolution to a subcommittee. Dorazio alone remained calm and, though somewhat out of shape, apparently in fair health. He was not one to shed much light, for he swore he "didn't , feel a thing." In fact, he could ; 3iot even join the class of past 'Louis victims now telling how hard the Brown Bomber hits. Said Gus, it was like this: ~"In the second round, I see an opening. I let go with my left. Next thinp; I know the fight is over. No sir, I didn't feel a thing." Leon L. Rains, chairman of the J'ennsyJvania athletic commission, Fsaid indignantly that the commission physician reported Dorazio "so completely knocked out that he had a hard time bringing him around." Joe Louis didn't say anything so far as was known here. Maybe he didn't know anybody had complained. Leaving his manager to collect his $18,730.70 last night, they said at Philadelphia—Joe went back to New York. T OS ANGELES, Feb. 18— (AP)— *-* Challedon demonstrated today that he can still be ranked as a big contender in the coming §100,000 Santa Anita Handicap. The Maryland invader, running in a special "betless race" between regular races at Santa Anita Park, turned in his hardest effort since coming off the shelf last fall and emerged from the stiff seven- furlong trial apparently sound as dollar. The special event was arranged by Challedon's owner. William L. Brann, to determine for himself and the public how his mighty champion was coming along In his training program for the big handicap March 1. The training schedule had been seriously interrupted by a hoof injury and bad weather. Challedon, under colors, went to he post with five other horses, ncluding Rough Pass, another andidate for the Santa Anita [andicap. The test was carried ut in regulation style with the xception that the public was not emitted to bet on the outcome. Snhoffpyiththe At the half-mile post Wisbech roke to serve as a fresh pace- etter for Challedon. Wisbech managed-to cross the finish line a ength in front of Challedon, with lough Pass trailing the Maryland- r. Challendon was clocked at one minute, 26 3/5 seconds flat for the even furlongs. The track was low. He carried 126 pounds, four less than he will carry in the March 1 landicap. Jockey George Woolf vas in the saddle. "Compared to the last time I rode htm, I'd say he ran easily and was at no time extended," Woolf said. "I thought he ran all right. I didn't think he was tiring. He was puffing a little at the finish, though." Challedon broke sluggishly, but oon hit into a long stride. L. C. Whitehall, his trainer, said he was >atisfied and added, "the work will do him a lot of good." Challedon, he said, would run in he $10,000 San Antonio Handicap Saturday, last big stake before the Santa Anita Handicap. PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 18—(AP Philadelphia and New York sport writers differed today with John J. Haluksa, state senator, who ac cused Gus Dorazio of taking a "per feet dive" in his fight with Joe Louis last night. "The knockout punch was so Rwe-inspiring it probably took $100,000 off the Conn gate," declared Jimmy Powers of the New York News. "It was one- sided, but it was honest. Joe could easily have carried his man a few additional rounds to ' forestall a threatened investi- "gation by Pennsylvania politicians." Comment from other writers who \vcre at the ringside: 'Dan Parker, New York Mirror: "I don't think Dorazio took a dive. Joe hits too hard to need co-operation from the likes of Gustavus." "•Joe Pbelan, Philadelphia Record: "All I can say is the knockout smack was the hardest punch I've ever seen Louis toss—and I've seen nil but a couple of his fights." ""• Johnny Webster, Philadelphia Inquirer: "Louis, in that moment, was a savage as when "Tie bombed Max Schmeling to crushing defeat in less than a round." Malt Ring, Philadelphia Bulle tin: "Better than some of the more exalted challengers, Dorazio made a-Csincere and courageous try." " Lou Jaffe, Philadelphia Ledger "It was a fearless Dorazio who \vent headlong into the battle." — Bill Dooly, Philadelphia Rec;• ord: "All I ask is that to prove ; his point Senator Haluska permit Louis to land the same » .punch." -Ted Meier, Associated Press •'Louis put Dorazio to sleep si soundly that Gus didn't know h< was counted out." o Warneke Signs Card Contract ..'ST.

Sat- rday. Warren Wright's, well-regarded olt, the nation's top money-earn; juvenile last year, ran a poor ird behind Agricole and C lium both owned- by Theodore Mueller's Shady Brook farm. Vhirlaway's defeat was the most gnominious of his brilliant career. Conn McCreary, riding his second winner of the day after graduating- from the apprentice ranks, guided Agricole to a length and a half victory over his stablemate.. Maemere farm's Maemante anc e'air stud's Boliver were distanl railers in the five-horse race. Whirlaway, ridden by the ac- omplished Basil James, who flew ere from California, had no ex- uses. The crowd had backed him own to 30 cents on the dollar. The Wright colorbearer broke ven faster than usual, but did nol ome through with his accustomed tretch rush, as he had done to win is recent winter debut. He made is move around the first turn ot no closer than two lengths to gricole, and then flattened out n the final drive. Whirlaway didn't show his occasional tendency to run wide at the last turn, although the winner did. Cadmium, cutting the corner, easily out- finished Whirlaway despite a .ew cracks of the whip by James. Agricole, decisively beaten in le Bahamas Handicap won by Dispute, ran the seven furlongs in :23 1/5, four-fifths of a seconc ver the track record.

Mesa came from behind to win yesterday's game, flashing a grea 'ourth-quarter rally to edge thi Colts in the last 30 seconds of play after trailing the entire game, lay-off came in the final half ninute when the Colts were stall ng behind a 32-to-31 lead. Bob -evy, forward, flashed out of tin sa defense, stole the ball, and raced down court for a setup to ;ew up the contest. The Colts started out very ho and went into a 12-4 lead the opening quarter when Bill Ham montree and Leo Voyles seemingly couldn't miss regardless of where the shot came from. North Phoe nix led at the intermission, 18-10 and still maintained about th same margin at the three-quarters vhen the score was 26-19. Pew was high man with mints, while Jamieson scored eigh "or the Colts. Coach R. V. Zegers Phoenix Pups played listlessly, but led St. Mary's, 8-6, at the quarter and 18-9 at the half after a defensive duel. The Pups slowly lengthened their lead and had a 25-19 margin at the three-quarters. Dave Goodwin paced the Pup: with 16 points.

Waner, who already has brough lis weight up to 142 pounds, hi :he longest drive of the workout •Je's concentrating on pull hittin; with the idea of bombarding th short right field wall at Ebbet Field. Fred Fitzsimmons missed th drill because of a sprained righ ankle and a bruised heel sufferei yesterday. o Dwight Sloan, a player with th Detroit Lions of pro football, has gone into the lieutenant. army as a secom An all-Chinese basketball team the San Francisco Hong Wall Hues, is touring the country. and the legendary Bill Tilden. The Valley of the Sun Is one of the 60 spots scheduled by the,quar- et of net notables and, If the tense, rilliant tennis the four have play- d thus far In their first swing through the country together is an accurate indication, the matches ere won't be a mere, parade * ot gilt-edged names. From the opening matches January « in New York'* Madison Square Garden—the pro- f essional debuts of MiM Marble and Miss Hardwicke—the tour has been featured by hard- fought it* best. . . When Miss Marble set out down he gold trail early in the year after- a long reign as queen of the amateur courts, the experts were almost unanimous in agreeing that she would find the opposition no ougher. But Miss Hardwicke, the "ormer British Wightman Cup star vho wintered in Phoenix last year, has offered her brilliant competition. She is more than just a foil 'or Miss Marble's power and cunning. She has lost most of her awe—al- hough none of her respect for California's Golden Girl — and is gaining confidence with each natch. Miss Marble, however, is the big attraction and, to date, she hasn't disappointed her audiences. She is one of the Itame's most colorful performers and without doubt is one of the greatest feminine performers tennis has known. The old adage "youth must be served" means practically nothing to Tilden. In a recent match, he stepped out of character as the jrandpappy of tennis, and spotting Budge -22 years, pinned the Oakland redhead's ears to the back of his youthful head. During the match, the "Old Master" blasted 11 service aces past his bewildered rival's head. 'Don't count me out of the picture yet," the aging Tilden said after the match. "My legs may not be as spry as they used to be, but can still show the boys a few tricks." During the tour, Tilden has given ample proof of why h« is often called the greatest racket-wielder of all time. He has displayed more than fleeting revivals of his fading talent in facing Budge's devastating game. Miss Marble and, the Oakland dynamiter have dominated the tour. Somewhere along the safari. Tilden and the British girl are likely to turn in a double'upset. And Phoenix may be the spot. N etu Vault 'Ceiling' Set YORK. Feb.' 18—(AP)—A year or two ago Brutus Hamilton, University of. California track coach, drew up a list of times, heights and distances which he felt represented the ultimate in track and field achievement. In the pole vault his "absolute ceiling" was 15 feet. Then Cornelius Warmerdam came along last summer and -boosted the world record to 15 feet, IV inches. Today Earle Meadows declared he felt vaulters would be able to clear 16 feet and perhaps—shades of the pioneers!—even 17, with the aid of a new takeoff box he has designed after two years ot studying the theory of vaulting. Meadows, winner of the las! Olympic title and set to defend his national indoor championship here next Saturdav. explained the present slot doesn't, enable the vaulter to take full advantage of the speed he generates on the runway. His design, which involves such gadgets as ball-bearings and a slot that moves up as pole and vaulter go up, still is on paper, but he was given permission yesterday by Dan Ferris of the -Amateur Athletic Union to proceed with construction. Ferris explained that, provided the Meadows invention did not give the vaulter any extra mechanical aid, he saw no reason why it should not be perfectly legal.

"The. Wild: Horse of the Osage," a» he was known during his- hey-day with the St. Louis Cardinals, drove out from Oklahoma- City after finishing his spring plowing. Despite a blow-out on his car and trailer en route, the Solons' new manager was all smiles. "I am starting a new career," he said. ','1 was in. the big leagues as a player and had considerable success. Now I want'to go back to. the majors as a manager. I think I can do it and I know I will hustle hard to make good in Sacramento. "I think we have the makings of a winning outfit. I know Don Gutteridge, Jack Sturdy, Buster Adams, Lynn King and Boots Hollingsworth are fine boys. I think we can fire them all up and maybe do all right in the pennant chase." Sacramento dropped to fifth place in the coast league last year after winning the 1939 play offs. The squad will report March 3 at Fullerton, Calif., and Martin will supervise the rookie school there beginning a week from tomorrow. But what scares the new manager most is the round ^of public appearances Phil Bartelme, president, has lined. He vows he won't make speeches but Bartelme thinks he will. "In the second place, yon-,, dealing with a couple of dot- en men who are matureenongt to be earning from KJ09 fe $30,000 a year, and if prate*. tion of their income tart . stronge enough motive fe keeping out of trouble, theft* not going to be stopped brk book of regulations."
