TUESDAY, JUNE ft, 1MO ALTON KVlNtNQ TELEGRAM Experts Now Criticize Johansson's Training NEW YORK (AP) ~ Ingemar Johansson threatenedto revoh* tionize the tlnie>tiuiiuTeu > routini of fight training, hot thr revolution to over. When Floyd Patterson demolished the handsome Swrte in winning back the world heavy. reight title at the Polo Grounds Monday night it was a victory (or Spartan training over the plush country dub atmosphere. Johansson astounded the critics with his casual, playboy approach to the first fight a year ago. When he stopped Patterson in three rounds and won the championship, the general idea was that down through the yean fighters had been unnecessarily punishing themselves to get into condition. Ingemar made believers of the fans with his easy-does-it system, and when he followed the same routine preparing for his title defense there was no criticism. He would dance. He would Journey to New York from Grossinger, a trip of more than 100 miles, to appear on television. He would play golf, and ride horseback, and swim, and otherwise enjoy himself. He lived in the family circle, and it was one big holiday for his parents, his brother and his wife, and his comely fiancee. Patterson had been holed up hi a bleak, abandoned old road house hidden away on a byroad in Connecticut. He had been there since last fall, leading the rugged life with only his trainer and sparring partners as company. Until the fight was signed and sealed and the publicity guns began to boom, visitors were few. And in the long, lonely hours Floyd had plenty of time to figure out his errors of the first fight, and ponder his strategy for the return. Little Charley Goldman, who trained Rocky Mardano through' out his undefeated career as champion, thinks he has at least part of the answer to Johansson's crushing defeat Monday night. Mardano also trained at Grossinger's up in the Catskill Mountains. But he isolated himself in an old farmhouse high up on a hilltop. "Johansson was training as il he was going to do six rounds of sparring," Goldman said after watching Patterson take out the Swede in the fifth round. "Patterson trained for a fight Johansson trained for a light sparing session. That's all there was to it" Darlene Seeks Hypnotic State Could Have Beaten Ingo NEW YORK (AP) - A leading expert on hypnosis said today Ingemar Johansson "could very possibly have been In a hypnotic state" during Monday night's leavyweight title bout with Floyd 'atterson. 'Johansson's reactions seemed subnormal throughout. He appeared dazed in the ring and later when I saw him in the dressing rooms," said Dr. Ralph Slater, president of the International Academy of Hypnotism. Dr. Slater was at ringside at the invitation of Patterson's manager. Cos D'Amato. As Johansson came into the ring I noticed that he stumbled slightly," continued Dr. Slater. 'Then he smiled almost all the way through the fight. Sometimes Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England (AP)— Bouncy Darlene Hard, the Montebello, Calif., pre-medical student starts her quest for the Wimble don women's tennis title today — one of the big ones that has eluded her. Miss Hard had a hand in al three U.S. points in the Wightman Cup competition less than two weeks ago and appears to be a the top of her game. "I feel good and hope I can go all the way," said the Pomona (Calif.) coed before taking the court for her first round tes against Anne Shilcock of Britain Two of Darlene's top rivals for the title, top-seeded Maria Bueno of Brazil and Christine Truman o Britain, also have, "first rourx matches on tap. a person hi a, hypnotic state acts this way, like someone who's drunk. Certainly, the smiling was peculiar considering the seriousness of his task. Also, for one in Johansson's excellent condition, he was on trie canvas for an unusually long time after being knocked out (in the fifth round). This could have been the result of a post hypnotic suggestion." There have been rumors Ingo was hypnotized by his personal physician, Dr. Gusta Carlsson, be- 'ore knocking out Patterson in their first match last June. 'The form of hypnosis Johansson received last night could have been very mild," said Dr. Slater 'Maybe they underestimated Patterson this time. In their first fight, Johansson may have been put In a somnambulistic (very deep) state and this could have lad a violent reaction and made him a tiger in the ring. 'Hypnotism can do seveta things to a fighter. It can give him more confidence, make him Immune to pain and speed his senses considerably. It can work the other way too if given' in a milder form."

Aaron Wallops Duster Pitch MILWAUKEE (AP) — A tip to National League pitchers: Watch out if you use the duster against Hank Aaron. It only makes the Milwaukee slugger more determined at the plate. Aaron came out on top In a personal duel with Los Angeles right- hander Don Drysdale and snapped out of batting slump with a pair of homers Monday night in helping the Braves to a 4-1 victory over the Dodgers. Drysdale sent Aaron sprawling once and made him do a jig twice to avoid being hit and issued four straight balls just an inning aftei Hammerin' Hank connected with his 14th homer in the second. It didn't worry the 26-year-old outfielder a bit. He dug in as leadoff batter in the sixth anc lined his 15th homer on the first pitch The partisan crowd howled in delight. ~"He didn't bother me," Aaron said later. "I'm up there to nit and he isn't going to scare me anil Outdoors with Hiirold Brand Wtontal IMflMMg After no little meditation, at least five minutes, we have de- dded that a fellow needs three boats, one tor fishing, one for water aiding and fast riding, and one to live aboard as a second home. The fishing boat should be light, about 85 to 100 pounds, preferably made of material that would need little maintenance (we are catering to our lazy streak). The light boat could be carried on a car top and easily portaged by two when needed. About a five-horsepower motor would be sufficient power. With such a rig, a fellow could get Into many waters virtually Inaccessible to any larger craft. And we know from experience that the fish are where it is hardest and most inconvenient to reach. The second boat should be about 16-to-lS feet in length with at least a six foot beam. Any motor from a 60-to-80 horsepower would fill the bill. Such a boat could pull up to several skiers. And again when a fellow wants to get somewhere fast, such as to Cairo, Peoria or Quincy, less than a day's run would be recjuired. We are't going to stick our neck out and suggest the. type of material the boat should be made of but again we don't want material that needs much work to keep it looking nice. Fleet Owner The third boat should have ample sleeping and houskeeping facilities. A houseboat would also fill the bill. The boat should have a stove, ice box, sink, at least a 15-gallon water tank with a spigot at the sink, dual lighting for battery and plugging into dockside facilities, a head, plus clothes closet and other storage space. The boat could be powered by inboard or outboard motor with possible speeds of from 10 to 18 miles an hour. The window should be screened and the boat should have an ample sundeck either atop or aft. Again the boat should be made of material needing a minimum of main- ienance. According to federal Jaw, anyone who owns three or more boatfc is a fleet owner. Now doesn't that sound important to a fellow, especially if he hasn't any other claim to fame. We once heard of a cruiser for $50 but couldn't figure out how to raise it in 30 feet of water where it had been resting for some time Now in addition to the wishful thinking, ft would also take a selling Job to the better half. Somehow, 'and it never fails anytime we suggest more money for boating, the better half ways needs curtains, a new living room or bedroom suite or lately, an air conditioner. She also wants the porch enclosed into a room, more carpeting and so on and on. We are willing to wager that we never get any closer to being a fleet owner than we are righl now. We do have a fast runabout and are partners in a $15 fishing boat. The nice thing about being a dreamer is that It doesn't cost anything. Safe Boating Queen But we may have some claim to fame after all perhaps. We have been asked to be a judge to help choose Miss Safe Boating Queen Friday evening at a Coronation Dinner Dance in St. Louis. There are about eight or more candidates representing various Flotillas in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We have al ways contended that there are no ugly women. But we never have tried to pick the prettiest. We'll just lean on the saga clous advice of the other judges and act as if we have chosen lots of queens. Of course our bet ter half will also be present, so we must be careful in our selec tion so she won't think that we prefer the queen to her. Otherwise there may be an argumen all the way home. Other judges who may have to defend their choice with their spouses are Robert Hartley, exec utive secretary of the Natlona Orioles Visit Sox Tonight CHICAGO (AP) - Tne Chicago VhiteSox.a •urprHing fieappotofc ment, play hott fontght to the Baltimore Orioles, surprising contenders for the America* League pennant.

So when the horse won and paid $42, the clerk figured he had that much coming to him. So he just took it from the register.
