ALTON EVB^INO TELUORAPM At Finish THURSDAY, SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) Assn., itflddlfwBighi crown was •Ufl to Gate Fulimer's bands today after he stopped challenger Carmen Basilic in 2:54 of the 13th i a bruising battle Wednes- Puilnwr's manager, Marv Jen- 000, today dismissed Basilio as a contender and said he has a HOO, 000 offer for his battler to meet Jdey Giambra next |ensori said matctanSkef Benny Fotd made the big-money bid (or a Fullmer-Gtambra match in San Francisco and mat fights with Paul Pender or Ray Robinson wire possible. Basilio, enraged when the fight was stopped, pushed the referee, threatened to punch him and daimed he was the victim of home town decision. Fullmer, the 29-year-old West Jordan, Utah, mink rancher, was in charge from the beginning and was ahead on every card when the end came. Judge Del Mark- bam and Referee Pete Giacoma had Fullmer ahead 108402, Judge Bob Yocum saw it, 109-101' and The Associated Press 108-101. In winning the nationally-tele vised bout, Fullmer extended his record to 52 victories. He has lost three and had one draw. Basilio is 54-15-7. Basilio weighed 156%, the heav iest of his career, Fullmer 159)4 Basilio, both eyes cut, his face swollen and wicked^looking welts on his body, delivered himself o some angry blasts at everyone connected with the fight when i was over. He excepted Fullmer. "Gene and I are gouJ friends but this Utah Athletic Commission belongs to Jenson," he charged "And that referee. He never should have stopped it. He could see the handwriting on the wall.' Did he mean he would have won had the fight continued? "Sure," he snapped. Basilio might have been hare pressed to find many in the crowd of 10,500 who would agree. The battered ex-champion from Chittenango, N.Y., was obviously hurt by heavy Fullmer lefts to the body and right shots to the face. Bleeding, reeling around anc holding on in the 12th, it appeared the end was near, one way or an other. McDaniel Rescues Another for Team WILKS No one's calling the Si Lotus Cardinals cheap, you understand, but they set aside just one locker in the clubhouse for more than half of their pitching staff. It's the one with Lindy McDaniel's name on it. The lean right-hander has figured iri 17 of their 33 victories- saving 14 and winning three. And he's streaking along with an 0.64 earned run average, allowing just three runs in 42 1-3 innings of relief. The one-time $50,000 bonus kid hung up his seventh consecutive save Wednesday night, nailing rookie Ray SadecW's second ma jor league victory in a 5-2 decision over Cincinnati that put the Cards back in fourth place in the National League race. The second place Milwaukee Uraves, 2% games out of the ead, split a doubleheader with the last place Chicago Cubs. The Braves lost the opener 3-2 then won the second game 3-1. First place Pittsburgh and San Francisco were rained out. Los Angeles tied Cincinnati for fifth place by sweeping Philadelphia 6-3 and 5-2 in a twi-night doubleheader. Stan Musial, bouncing back from the bench after a long slump singled home the Cards' first two BASILIO MAD AT REF • SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. — An angry Carmen Basilio turns on referee Pete Giatttom for stopping the NBA middleweight title fight in the 12th round at wilt Lake City last night, and awarding it to champion Gene Fullmer on a technical knockout. Basilio put up his gloves and touched the referee as he backed away from the furious fighter, then yelled he wanted to continue fighting. The end came six seconds before the end of the round.

LOUIS (AP) — Stan Musial is nearlng 40 and has been riding the bench much of this season. But since returning to the starting lineup Saturday he's been acting like a youngster. Wednesday night, Musial singled home the first two St. Louis runs and stroked a double in a 2-4 evening during which the Cardinals downed the Cincinnati Reds 5-2 and moved back into fourth place in the National League. And in Tuesday's losing effort to the Reds, he slapped out two doubles and a single. I Musial, moved into the cleanup [spot as slumping Ken Boyer was about.

Wednesday's night's play raisec his batting average eight points to .264. Musial said he believes he can reach the .300 mark and Manager | Solly Hemus agreed. Hemus said, "Stan always has a chance for .300." Musial said, "It all depends on how much I play the rest of the year. I haven't been to bat too many times. If I can have a few good games I could easily jump to .300." The Cardinals, after apparently consigning him to an occasional pinch-hit appearance, are now talking about Musial with guarded optimism. General Manager Bing Devine remarked before Wednesday night's game mat the Musial hit which most impressed him was a single to the left off Jim O'Toole Tuesday. "He just stroked it," said Devine, "and when he's hitting like that he's the Musial of the semifinals of* either the men's or women's singles. "But why panic over mat?'.' said Fred Perry, three - times Wimbledon champion of the thhv ties who has coached •youngsters in the. United States. "No one can be on top all the time. But the Americans have thousands of young players who are capable of developing into top class. There's nothing wrong with American tennis that a little luck and hard work Won't cure." Adrian Quist, Australian team manager, also brushed aside the idea that American tennis is on the decline. The final of the men's singles Friday will be an all-Australian clash, rtod Laver, the red-haired left-hander who was defeated by Peruvian Alex Olmedo in last year's final, will tangle with Neale Fraser.
