Feb. 18— (AP)—The wallop that flattened 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 de- . termine if possible who was responsible for such a farce." He said that he knew a "perfect dive" when he saw one.'He used, to bo 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." Senator Haluska'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 rest lution 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 not 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 thing I know the fight is over. Ni sir, I didn't feel a thing." Leon L. Rains, chairman of the Pennsylvania athletic commission said indignantly that the commission physician reported Dorazio "so completely knocked out that he had a hard tirne bringing him around." Joe Louis didn't say anything so far as was known here. Maybe he didn't know anybody had com plained. Leaving his manager to col loot his $18,730.70 last night, they said at Philadelphia—Joe went bac] to New York. SCRIBES DENY -DIVE' PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 18—(AP Philadelphia and New York sport writers differed today with Job J. Haluksa, state senator, who ac cused Gus Dorazio of taking a "per feet dive" in his fi^ht with Jo Louis last night. - "The knockout punch was so awe-inspiring it probably took SICO.OOO 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 investigation by Pennsylvania politicians." Comment from other writers wh we're at the ringside: Dan Parker, New York Mirror "I don't think Dorazio took a dive Joe hits too hard to need co-opera tion from the likes of Gustavus/' Joe Phelan, Philadelphia Record "All I can say is the knockou smack was the hardest punch I'v ever seen Louis toss—and I've seer all but a couple of his fights." Johnny Webster, Philadelphia Inquirer: "Louis, in that moment, was a savage as when he bombed Max Schmeling to crushing defeat in less than a round." Malt Ring, Philadelphia Bulle tin: "Better than some of the mor exalted challengers, Dorazio mad a sincere and courageous try." Lou Jaffe, Philadelphia Ledger: "It was a fearless Dorazio who vent headlong into the battle." Bill Dooly, Philadelphia Record: "AH I ask is that to prove his point Senator Haluska per- juit Lnuis to land the same punch." Ted Meier, Associated Press: "Louis put Dorazio to sleep so soundly that Gus didn't know he was counted out." Challedon Shows Speed In Turf Test; Whirlaway's Stock Drops OS ANGELES. Feb. 18— (AP)— 1 Challedon demonstrated today that he can still be ranked as a big ontender in the coming $100,000 anta Anita Handicap. The Maryland invader, running . a special "betless race" between egular races at Santa Anita Park, urned in.his hardest effort since oming off the shelf last fall and c-ierged from the stiff seven- urlong 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 the post with five other horses, ncluding Rough Pass, another andidate for the Santa Anita Handicap. The test was carried lut in regulation style with the xception that the public was not permitted to bet on the outcome. At the half-mile post Wisbech broke to serve as a fresh pace- elter for Challedon. Wisbech managed to cross the finish line a ength in front of Challedon, with Rough Pass trailing the Marylander. Challedon was clocked at one minute, 26 3/5 seconds flat for the seven furlongs. The track was slow. He carried 126 pounds, four less than he will carry in the March handicap. Jockey George Woolf was in the saddle. "Compared to the last time I rode him, 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, bul soon hit into a long stride. L. C Whitehill, his trainer, said he was satisfied and added, "the work wii do him a lot of good." Challedon, he said, would run in the $10,000 San Antonio Handicap Saturday, last big stake before the Santa Anita Handicap. VALJI1NA GKOOM WUSS ARCADIA, Calif., Feb. 18—(UP) Valdina Groom, backed down to less than even money, rewarded the form-players by whipping a not- too-classy field today in the seven furlong $2,500 San Bernardino Purse at Santa Anita Park. The Valdina farms chestnut colt racing wide throughout to avoic the heavy going on the rail, was shaken up at the far turn by Jockey Pariso and won easily by thre quarters of a length over Kantar Run. Valdina Groom packed his top impost of 114 pounds easily, am was timed in 1:27.1/5. Mutuels par $3.80, $3 and $2.60. L. B. Mayer's Painted Veil was given an ener getic ride by Ralph Neves and finished a neck behind Kantar Run tc save show. Kantar Run paid $4.20 and $3, am Painted Veil paid $3.60. : O Spring Training Begun By Giants MIAMI, Feb. 18—(AP)—Thi New York Giants held their firs training camp ball game today an( Carl Hubbell's team conquered Ha Schumacher's squad, 16-8, in i terrific eight-inning battle marke< by 37 hits.

He coir lected $3,550 for his recent victory in the world's championship three- cushion billiards tournament. The month-long tournament produced a net "gate" of $21,075'with the total attendance above 35,000. - Hoppe's record in Tetaining-' . the title was 16 victories in 17 matches.

Y., $550; Clarence Jackson, Detroit. $550; Joe Moriarty, Chi$550; Len Kenney, Chicago, Herb Peterson, St -Louis, Fla., Feb. 18—(AP)— Whirlavvay's Kentucky Derby stock tumbled today as he was beaten by 4W lengths in a final tuneup for the $20,000 added Flamingo Stakes at Hialeah Park Saturday. * Warren Wright's well-regarded colt, the nation's top money-earning juvenile last year, ran a poor third behind Agricole and Cadmium, both owned by Theodore Mueller's Shady Brook farm. Whirlaway's defeat was the most ignominious 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 ant Be'air stud's Boliver were distant trailers in the five-horse race. Whirlaway, ridden by the accomplished Basil James, who flew here from California, had no excuses. The crowd had backed him down to 30 cents on- the dollar. The Wright colorbearer broke even faster than usual, but did nol come through with his accustomec stretch rush, as he had done to win his recent winter debut. He made his move around the , first turn got no closer than two lengths tt Agricole, and then flattened out In the final drive. ..Whirlaway didn't show his occasional tendency to rim 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 the Bahamas Handicap won b; Dispute, ran the seven furlongs ii 1:23 1/5, four-fifths of a second over the track record. The Shad; Brook farm entry paid $9.70 for $2 to win and $5.40 to place, with no show mutuels sold. McCreary, who bruised an arm yesterday when his mount ran into the quarter pole during the pos parade, won the first race today aboard a first starter, the two year-old Bezique. The winner, "field" horse, paid $6.60 straight Jockey Wendell Eads, the track's leading apprentice who was suspended for the rest of the meeting for careless riding yesterday, took advantage of his last day in the saddle to boot home Lady Lyonors, a $5.30 favorite, in the fourth -raee. Eads' suspension begins tomorrow. Grid Staff Is Named By YateMentor VTEW iHAVEN,; Conn, Feb. 18— iN (AP)^-Emerson. W. (Spike) cago, $550; $550.

Acceptance of a post as swimming instructor at Sue Bennett Junior College here hastened her decision. Although the job pays no money, Miss Moorman, 16 years old, will get board and room from the school. The Kentucky Amateur Athletic Union opposed her taking the job because it said accepting board and room would cause Miss Moorman to lose her amateur standing. She said she already had made up her mind to turn professional, but that for the present she would continue her high school studies in addition to teaching swimming. Miss Moorman came here recently from Louisville, Ky., when her mother, who holds a Work Proj- £cts Administration administrative job, was transferred. The Kentucky mermaid established new marks for the quarter- mile, half-mile and mile free-style events at Portland,'Ore., last summer. o Chi$ox Complete Player Roster CHICAGO, Feb. 18— (INS)—The Chicago White Sox of the American League became the first major baseball team to report all players signed for the 1941 campaign today when Pete Appleton, relief pitcher, announced that -he was dropping his contract In the mail. game.

Miss Marble, however, is the big attraction and, to date, she hasn't disappointed her audiences. She is one of the game's most colorful performers and without doubt to 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 spot- Ing Budge 22 years, pinned the Dakland 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 he is often called the greatest racket-wielder of all time. He haa 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.

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, U' inches. Today Earle Meadows de-. clared 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 of studying the theory of vaulting Meadows, winner of the last Olympic title and set to defend his national indoor championship here next Saturday, 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. Dtcus Named ToA-TPost B ISBEE, Feb.

"The Wild Horse of the Osage," as he was known daring 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. "I 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.
