Patterson Chills Decks Pete 7 Times, Downed Once Himself By JACK HIS WINS SEATTLE tfi-Floyd Patterson, the cool destroyer who hold* the world heavyweight championship, cut down powerful Pete Rademacher Thursday night and turned to dust the big guy's dream of stepping from the amateur peak to the pinnaele of the pros. Giving away IS pounds — the champion weighed 187 to Rade- maeher's 202 — Floyd decked the courageous challenger seven times before Pete took the full count at 2:57 of the sixth round. Su, to the consternation of thousands who regarded this as a mismatch, Patterson was the first man to hit the canvas. Midway in the second round Rademacher crossed a right to the champion's jaw. Floyd seemed to slip as he Sagged, but he went all the way down and the knockdown counter at ringside had reached the tally of four when he got back up. Ruled Out. Referee Tommy Loughran waved off the count, ruling it no knockdown but later In his dress tag room Floyd said he was bowled over by the punch. The professional began to show his superiority over the Olympic titlist in the third round, leaping from a crouch to spear Rade- maeher with a straight right that tent the big guy sprawling. He took a nine count and was back on his feet at the bell, but the.crowd of 16,961 had its tipoff an the outcome. It was delayed iq Round 4 while Floyd moved easily around big Pete, stalking him and looking for an opening for a payoff punch. He found the range in the fifth. Four t^mes Patterson blasted him down In that round, and four times the farm boy from Grand- View, Wash,, struggled up at the count of nine and tried valiantly to match blows. Tired, Hurt Loughran went to Rademacher's corner after the bell to ask Pete if he wee all right and got a smiling nod. But Pete appeared tired and hurt, and the few blows he landed in the sixth lacked sting. He clinched, and as Loughran poved in to separate them Patterson poured home a left and then a light. It was the next-to-last knockdown. Patterson threw a left and this t(me ae Rademacher struggled Wearily to his feet the referee waved Patterson away. Most ring- aiders thought Loughran was stop. S ag the fight, but the referee said e count had reached 10 and it was a knockout. Ajfter the battle Rademacher of* jered no alibis anj Patterson was I high in his praise for the challenger, who had dreamed up this fight and made it real. Rademacher is the first man ever to step from the amateur ranks directly into a heavyweight championship fight. "He has all the Qualifications of a future great fighter," Floyd said. "When somebody is chopping at you with an ax you have to go down eventually," grinned Rademacher, holding a chunk of ice to a slightly puffed eye. Asked if he felt fighting for nothing was worth the effort, he said, "Very definitely." $141,000 Gate The bout drew a. gross gate of 4243,030—far short of the anticipated -full-house, $400,000. Rademacher's backers—a group of Georgia businessmen — put up Patterson's guarantee of $250,000 and took both fighters' share of the gate— 60 per cent of the $209,556 net or just under $125,500. Patterson aaid this would be his last fight in 1957. Asked if he would fight again now that he has become a professional, Rademacher said that was something he would decide later. "He is," said Loughran of Rademacher, "the most courageous fighter I have ever seen." Loughran, who was sole judge, scored the first two rounds for Rademacher and gave the rest to Floyd. The Associated Press card agreed, except for calling the first round even. Bancroft Still In Legion Race HOB ART, Okie.

Floyd Gives Knockdown Credit to Pete By JACK STEVENSON SEATTLE l*» - Heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson, knocked down for only the second time in his pro career before stopping amateur king Pete Rademacher Thursday night, gave his foe full credit. "1 don't remember going down, go obviously it was' a knockdown," the 22-year-old Floyd said In his hot, crowded dressing room at Sicks Stadium. Didn't Underestimate "Most everybody underestimated him," Patterson said of the 28 - year - old Rademacher. "Fortunately, I didn't. "I underestimated his punching power, but not his ability. He's fresh from winning the Olympic heavyweight title, and eager. He has the qualifications of a future great fighter but he lacks experience." Patterson said he was surprised by the knockdown hut didn't feel he was in any trouble. He appeared unmarked as he. dropped his hands in a bucket of ice water, and talked calmly. "Rademacher was a much harder puncher than Hurricane Jackson but he doesn't have the stamina." Floyd said Rademacher stung him after the second round but didn't again connect with a really stiff punch. "I was catching him often but not catching him flush," ha said of the six knockdowns that preceded the finisher. Only- Once Before Patterson was knocked down only once before in his career on a sneak right hand by Jacquea Crecy-Royer early in his career while he still was a light heavyweight. Asked the reason Rademacher's good early showing didn't surprise him, Patterson replied: "He was an Olympic champion. I was an j Olympic champion once too and I know how tough they have to be." Patterson's manager, Cus D'Amato, remained noncoramital on future plans for the champion. "I can't say at this time," was his only comment. Earlier he stated he has a pair of $250,000 offers already. in 6th Round of Title Battle Washington 000 000 000—0 6 5 Bancroft 003 302 OOx—8 6 2 Kyaon and Wunderlich; Fenna­ ma and Schlitz.

At the same time he said heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson could become as great as Jack Dempsey. Of Rademacher, the 1956 Olympic king whose first bout out of the amateur ranks was Thursday night's sixth round knockout to Patterson, Tommy said: "The fellow needs experience the same as any amateur does on turning pro. He hits hard and has the heart of a lion. He could do well with the contenders. But he is 21 and at his age it would be foolish to start." Tommy, who acted as referee and sole official this first time he had such a job in a heavyweight title bout, said, "Patterson is a great fighter. He could go down in history as another Jack Dempsey. He hits fast and hard." Chopped at With an Axe, Says Pete By WARD T. SIMS 8EATTLE <* - "When somebody's chopping at you with an axe, it's bound to get you." Pete Rademacher, the Olympic heavyweight champion, thus explained his knockout at the hands of the professional champion of the world, Floyd Patterson, in their title match Thursday. Peter, his bruised hands soaking in a bucket of ice. was unmarked despite the seven times he hit the canvas, the last time for the count. Rademacher, his dreams of capturing the heavyweight pro title on his first outing vanished, said he hadn't decided what would be next on his schedule. ' "I would like to fight Patterson again," Pete said, "but that's a decision that I won't make for a couple of weeks. Of course, I'll have to work up to it the next time, if there is a next time." Rademacher. who decked the champion in the second round, said the puneh had a lot of beef behind it. "The knockdown didn't surprise me as much as it did Floyd." Rademacher said. "I saw the opening and poured it home. It was a right to the side of the head." Rademacher said Patterson's strongest punch is a short right to the head. Those were the shots that got me over the long haul. Each one took a little more out of me. "His body punches didn't seem te phase me at all. "I've fought amateurs who hit as hard as Floyd. One of those was Zora Folley (now the No. 2 heavyweight)." TODAY'S BASEBALL By The Associated Presa NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet. G.B.

ALL CHANNfl ANTINNAI $9,95 » $34.95 Let Todd TV jfir Rqdio Strvict Buhl, Musial Are Sidelined By Injuries By EP WILKS The Associated Press Injuries moved smack dab into the middle of the National League pennant picture today with right­ hander Bob Buhl, a 16-game winner for first-place Milwaukee, and Stan Musial, the batting ace for second-place St; Louis, hit by shoulder miseries. Adding to the Braves' woes, outfielder Wes Covington has been sidelined for four or five days because of a pulled heel tendon. Shortstop Johnny Logan, outfield, er Billy Bruton and first baseman Joe Adcock are already on the injured list. Braves Win Buhl, who has won seven straight in Milwaukee's climb to the top although bothered by an inflamed shoulder for a month, returned to Milwaukee for treatment Thursday night as the Braves, playing like champions, plunked third-place Brooklyn 7H games behind with a 6-1 victory at Ebbats Field. Musial, the bat leader at .340, gave way with what a preliminary examination revealed as a torn muscle suffered while batting in Thursday night's 6-5 victory at Philadelphia which kept the Cards within 6to games of first. Team trainers said Musial, who holds a league record for consecutive games played, may be out several days—"perhaps weeks." In the other NL games, Pittsburgh beat Cincinnati 8-3. the Redlegs' 10th successive defeat and the longest slump of the year in the league. The New York Giants defeated Chicago's Cubs 6-2 with. Willie Mays 3-for-4, including his 28th home run. for a runner-lip bat average of .332. The New York Yankees reverted to form and banged Kansas City 11-4, regaining a 6Vi-game edge over the idle second-place Chicago White Sox in the American League. Boston whipped Cleveland 11-3 and Detroit trimmed Baltimore 4-0 on the four-hit pitching of Frank Lary. Ted's Mark .386 Boston's Ted Williams, hitless for two days, had two singles in four trips, putting his leading average at .386. Yankee Mickey Mantle, who also had been without a hit for two days, was l-for-4, but lost another point for a .377 mark. It was a breeze for the Braves, with Hank Aaron's 35th home run a three-run first-inning shot that was all Lew Burdette needed for his 12th victory..He tossed a seven-hitter. Sal Maglie lost it for a 6-6 record, giving up five hits and four runs in his five frames. The Braves had 11 hits in all—three each from Red Schoendienst, who hit his 14th home run, Ed Mathews and Bob Hade. Ken Boyer drove in two runs for the Cards, walloping a 14th home run that cleared the left field stands at Philly, and bringing in the clincher with a sacrifice fly.-Rookie Bill Muffett, retiring the side in a three-run sixth and blanking the Phils on three hits the rest of the way, was given the victory by the official scorer, although starter Larry Jackson had pitched the minimum five innings required for a victory. Jack Sanford lost his fifth. Nail Redlegs * The Pirates smacked IS hits and scored five in the fourth that nailed#th« Redlegs for Bob Friend's ninth victory against 16 defeats. Don Gross lost it. Hank Sauer also homered for the Giants as Ray Crone gained a 6-7 record, although needing relief help after shutting out the Cubs on five hits for seven. Harry Simpson hit a grand- slammer in a six-run third for the Yankees. Johnny Kucks won in re- life. Yogi Berra also homered for the Yanks, off bonus left Dave Hill, making his first appearance. Williams, 0-for-6 at Cleveland, had two singles as the Red Sox rapped 14 hits, one Jackie Jensen's 15th home run. Mike Fornieles won it, blanking the Tribe on five hits for his eighth victory. Early Wynn lost his fifth in a row for a 15-15 record—his worse since 1948. "Lary, who led the AL with 21 victories last year, picked up e 7-15 record with his third consecutive victory. He faced only 25 batters and walked none in the first Detroit shutout since May 14. it >» SPECIALISTS IN CLOUT . . . Boston's Ted Williams, left, and Mickey Mantle, the Yankee Bomber, are in a fight for the American League batting title with the pitchers the real losers. Both seem likely to wind up close to the .400 mark. Finally Rate Ted on His Smooth Swing, Hitting By JIMMY BRESLIN NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK - (NEA> — Somewhere, somehow — if he keeps going — Ted Williams is going to get the only thing his wanted out of baseball this season: acceptance as a hitter. Since he walked into the Red Sox oamp at Sarasota, Fla., in 1939 he has wanted this and nothing else, but he found people were more concerned with the wilder side of Williams than they were with his smooth swing. Through the years, Williams has chopped apart American League pitching staffs, but all people seemed willing to talk of was his personal life. It enraged the big guy and he showed it in a violent series of obscene gestures and spitting at crowds. Legends cropped up quickly, too. You were told <a> he never hit when it counted, <b> he cared about nothing but his batting average, ruining Red Sox morale while at it and (c) he never won pennants, In Middle of Duel But noav, a 30-year-old man, he is in the middle of a hit-filled duel with Mickey Mantle for the triple crown of American League batting. He also is saying nothing to anybody. So if people are going to talk about Williams, they wind up with his showing at bat and nothing else./ For Williams, it probably is the best season,- irritation • wise, he's ever had. Once he stumbled past his big spring blast at the politicians he feels were responsible for his being called back to service during the Korean War, Ted let his bat talk. . He always maintained he Is a great hitter for a couple of basic reasons. One, he'd tell you, is that he was born with the ability. And the other is that he dedicated himself to improving his talents. This theory is borne out probably more this year than ever be* fore. Around him, ball players three and four years younger are starting to slide. But Ted is battling 25-year-old Mantle for the chipsv How he does it 's simple. Condirion, for one thing. He is a bug on taking Vitamin A for his eyesight and his ideas of a diet are strict. He never, for example, eats a big meal after two in the afternoon If a night game is scheduled. And Williams off the field ii a guy who either can be found doing sit- ups or squeezing muscle < building gadgets. . In the middle of the season.' s statistician went to work and came up with a table that showed Williams, the hitter over the years, had been a bit more than a handicap to the Red Sox. In some quarters, this came as a surprise. Particularly one statistic that brought out Williams' totals as a home run hitter in the clutch. This one made him to be another Ruth. Needles, 1956 Kentucky Derby winner, first gaired acclaim by winning the 1955 Sapling Stakes at Monmouth Park an a 2-year-old. No. 2 Rank With Byors By DAVE DILEf DETROIT Uf) Cuban welterweight Isaac Logart risks his No. 2 ranking tonight against up-and- coming Walter Byars of Boston in a 10-round bout at Detroit's Olympia Stadium. "I reesk nothing," said Ug4rt. "I ween thees one beeg and then \ ween champeenship—then I have beeg money/' Logart, who says he is two year's younger than the 24 years the record books indicate, has a wide edge in experience over the light-punching easterner. In 61 professional fights, Logart has won 50, lost 6 and fought two draws. He is a solid 11-5 favorite to defeat the 25-year-old Byars, the ex-Marine who has had only 21 pro bouts. Byars has been brought along rapidly and has won 16 of his 21 fights. He will be out to break a two-fight losing streak, haveing dropped decisions recently to Tony DeMarco, the No. 1 challenger to Carmen Basilio's title, and Virgil Akins.
