Sugar Ray Now Ready to Make a Deal By ED CORRIGAN NEW YORK UPl-While money man Jim Norris lay in a hospital bed. Sugar Ray Robinson hinted today that he was ready to go through with his middleweight championship defense against Carmen Basilio Sept. 23. "I have high hopes that we will come to some understanding," said Robinson, who has been feuding with Norris' International .Boxing Club over the question of theater TV. Truman Gibson, IBC secretary, confirmed that Robinson said he wanted to make a deal. "If he is sincere," said Gibson, "I think we can reach some agreement in a few days." The IBC signed with Theater Network Television. Robinson claimed he could make more money if the theater TV rights were awarded to Teleprompter, a rival of TNT. He maintained that, according to his contract with the IBC, no theater TV agreements were to be signed without his consent. He was not consulted hefore the IBC signed with TNT, he said. "But right now my main concern is for Jim's welfare," Sugar Ray added. "I'm sure everything will be all right. Perhaps we can combine the theaters of the two companies." Norris was stricken with food poisoning Monday just as he was about to go into conference with Robinson in an effort to reach an agreement. BIG BRAVES . . . Red.

Lined up, in any order, you have Pat McMurtry, Eddie Machen, Zora Folley, Roy Harris, Willie Pastrano, Alex Miteff and even Inge Johansson of Sweden. While matchmakers, managers and promoters tried to do something about the dead boxing business, it remained for Youth Unlimited, Inc.—and we still haven't even a hazy notion of what it is —to prove a point.

Surgery and Diseases of Bones and Joints Including Fractures JAMBS M. TifRNpY, M.D. - Internal Medicine DIAL' 3557 a pretty good job against the current heavyweight champion. This was shown by Pete Rademacher, of course. If Rademacher, a raw amateur of 28, could win three of the. first four rounds as I saw it (the referee gave him only one, but others went as high as three) and come out alive after seven knockdowns, four in one round, the fifth, then there is a grand chance for anybody who can fight. McMurtry, a 25-year-old heavyweight from Tacoma, Wash., feels that way. "I'm more convinced Floyd Patterson ALL IN THE EAR! Barely visible in this girl's ear is Sonotone's new hearing aid — complete. IT'S WORN ENTIRELY IN THE EAR—no cord, no "button" showing. Weighs only half an ounce. COME IN FOR FREE DEMONSTRATION AT HEARING CENTER BURKE HOTEL . Carroll, Iowa Friday, August 30 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. SONOTONE OF DES MOINES Fred Crota, Consultant 604 Grand Ave. — Dti Molnss, la. now than ever that I can lick Patterson," he says. ^ • We caught McMurtry in action for the first time when he KO'd Robo Olson in Portland, Ore. It proved nothing except he is a big, good-looking fellow. But McMurty, on seeing Patterson in the flesh for the first time, seemed to pick up a lot, for his purposes. "He has a lot of faults," Pat said. "He punches with both feet off the floor. He crosses his right foot behind his left when he steps to the left. He is easily hit. He's not any part of the finisher I was told he was. He doesn't follow up an advantage. Instead, he stays back with his hands up. From what I've seen of him on television — and particularly of his fight with Rademacher—I would say he lacks the killer instinct." McMurtry is a crew-cut Irishman with a stage, rather than a fighter's nose, and is totally unmarked after 102 amateur and 28 professipnal outings, plus a stretch of heavier duty as a Marine Air Branch sergeant in Korea. He wasn't talking for pleasure, either. Emil Lence, the little New York cloak and suiter who has the major promotional rights to Patterson, had a long talk with Clarence McMurtry, the father who manages his handsome and highly promising son. Lence wants McMurtry for a Yankee Stadium title shot next June. Patterson, who further made it perfectly clear that he needs experience, wants to fight three or four times a year. Lence is working to please him. He is seeking an opponent for a late November title match in New York's huge Kingsbridge Armory. D'Amato has made it clear Machen and Pastrano turned down chances to meet Patterson and he holds it against them. Before the Rademacher bout, Cus spoke of Zora Folley and Nino Valdes, the latter to be taken on in Cuba. But other heavyweights are thinking now and if Roy Harris of Cut and Shoot, Tex., can get over Pastrano in their rematch in Mi ami Beach, the pistol packing school teacher would be part of a Lence promotion in Houston or Miami in February. So Pete Rademacher did a little more than turn an anticipated farce into a grand show with his courageous stand against Patterson. He threw the heavyweight championship wide open. The feeling here is that he also gave a lesson to the National Boxing Association and the various state commissions, particularly New York. The match was no disgrace to boxing, as they protested it would be. There have been a lot worse productions approved. This should teach commissions to mind their own business. Open Fences, Free (Coffee For Nimrods By DION HENDERSON Associated Press Staff Writer Landowners having their troubles with hunters—and let's face it, many of them do—might consider the novel approach of opening up the fences and welcoming the boys with open arms and free coffee. This proposal is not calculated to stir the anti-trespass society to shouts of acclamation but maybe it would work. Project Set Up At least it did in a carefully set up State of Washington project called the Operation Cooperative Hunter Experiment Control. A committee made up of representatives of Washington's game department, the Lewis County sheriff's office, the Lewis County Poggie club and the Weyerhaeuser Timber Co. sponsored the test on 70 square miles of the Vail Tree Farm near Chehalis during deer season a year ago. Stated objectives were to lower the landowner's hazards of damage by fire, theft, vandalism and the man-hours of repairs; to reduce game and civil law violations and obtain a maximum harvest of deer. The area was posted with 113 directional signs and special signs that asked hunters to stay out of certain areas and off specified roads. After receiving a permit from a checking station, he was given a map of the area, a cup of coffee and a book listing ground rules and hunting tips for the area. Free cabins and firewood were available on a first-come, first- served basis to hunters who wanted to stay overnight. Committee Report And here's the committee report: During the 21-day season, 3S7 hunters used the area. There were: No cases of hunting law violations. No lost hunters. No reported thefts • of equipment. No vandalism. No fires in the area. No firearms accidents. No failures to comply with local regulations. Maurice Stokes of Rochester led the National Baseball Assn. in re^ bounds last season with 1,256 in 72 games. MOVING Local and Nation Wide Storage — Crating — Packing Ph. Day 2540 Ph.

Cuban heavyweight Nino Valdes hoped to be a baseball player but turned to boxing. He played first base in Cuba. By JOE MOOSHIL CHICAGO iflv-Minnesota, boasting an all-veteran starting lineup headed by All American candidate Bobby Cox. is all set to challenge Iowa's defending champions in the upcoming Big Ten football race. Right along with the Gophers and Hawks will be Michigan State and Michigan while Ohio State and Northwestern loom as darkhorses. That seems to be the situation as the Western Conference prepares to launch another campaign with most of the teams scheduled to open drills Saturday, Last year Iowa was expected to be an also ran. Instead Coach Forrest Evashevski's crew won the title and went on to defeat Oregon State in the Rose Bowl. This year. Illinois, Purdue, Wisconsin and Indiana fall into the •'also ran" category. 21 Lettermen Iowa is the team to beat. The Hawks lost quarterback Ken Ploen and end Frank Gilliam but they have 21 lettermen returning. Back again is end Jim Gibbons, tackles Alex Karras and Dick Klein both ! of whom anchored Iowa's stout defense, halfbacks Collins Hagler and Bill Happel and fullbacks John Nocera and Fred Harris. . \ Ready to take'over at quarterback is Randy Duncan. Duncan is not the ball handler or runner Ploen was but"he is rated a much better passer. For this reason, Evashevski is expected to lean toward the standard T-formation rather than the winged—t. Murray Warmath has 27 lettermen returning at Minnesota and is better than two-deep at every position. Cox, rated one of the finest split-T quarterbacks in' the country, will be backed by Dick Larson, also a letter winner. Powerful Line • The Gophers have a powerful line headed by Frank Youso and flanked by Jon Jeracic and Perry Gehring. In the backfield are such veterans as Ken Bombardier, Bob Soltis. Bob Schultz. Dave Lindblom and fullback Dick Borstad. Michigan will rely on the> power plays of fullback John Herrnstein who scored 42 points last 1 season and the passing and run- I ning of quarterback Jim Van Pelf i and tailback Jim Pace. Lost are j pnds Ron Kramer and Tom j Maencz but Gary Prahst—consid- | ered another Kramer—and Chuck Teuscher are ready to step in. Michigan State could take all the marbles if the Spartans aren't I hit by another injury but. Considered a sure-bet last season, Michigan State finished the campaign with eight regulars sidelined by injuries. Coach Duffy Daugherty has 27 letter winners including halfbacks Walt Kowalczyk and Blanche Martin, center Times Herald, Carroll, Mows Tuesday, Aug. 27, 1957 Dan Currie, tackle Pat Burke, Kaiser—hero of the 1956 Rose Bowl champions—and fullback Dan Gilbert. Ohio State lost a lot through graduation but the Buckeyes, who always come up with a wealth of material, are optomistic. Guard Aurelius Thomas is back as is halfback Dan Clark and fullback Galen Cisco. However, Coach Woody Hayes must come up with a quarterback. Best bets are Frank Kremblas and Andy Okulo- vich, both fine passers. 7 Regulars Back Northwestern, last year's surprise, has seven regulars back in its list ( of 14 lettermen. Once again depth could be the big problem at Evanston. Coach Ara Parseghian will have a fine line with the likes of Al Viola, Andy Cvercko, Al Weyhrich and ends Ben Napolski and Cliff Peart. The Wildcats have Bob McKie- var and Wilmer Fowler at the halfback post and Ed Quinn at fullback but will have to develop a quarterback. Among the top candidates is Chip Holcomb, son of Stu Holcomb, the NU athletic director. There's an unexpected note of optimism at Illinois where Coach Ray Eliot usually has the crying towel, out. However, Bill Of fen- backer will have to play a more consistent game at quarterback if the Illini hope to improve their 5-2 record. Dale Smith and Bob Mitchell %ill carry the ground attack along with fullbacks Ray Nitschke and Jack Delveau. Purdue is without quarterback Len Dawson and ends Lamar Lundy and Bob Khoenle. The Boilermakers will have to rely on their ground game led by Mel Dillard, top rusher in the Big Ten and No. 6 nationally with 873 yards in 193 attempts for a fine 4:5 average. Wisconsin is rebuilding . and will bank on sophomores. Key returnee is Dan Lewis, the team's leading rusher. Side Williams has the potential at quarterback. Indiana, having lost newly-appointed coach Phil Dickens for one ' year because of recruiting irregul- I arities, will operate from the sin| gle wing. The Hoosiers have prob- '; lems galore and must face Mich- j igan State. Notre Dame. Iowa j and Ohio State in their first four j games.

Yanks Face Showdown Against Sox By ED WTLKS^ The Associated Press -Maybe there is going to be t race in the American League after all. The New, York Yankees look bad and Manager Casey Stengel looks nervous. Faced by a three-game showdown against the Chicago White Sox opening tonight in Comiskey Park, 01' Case played a hunch and came off second best in Detroit Monday as the Tigers cracked the Yankees 5-2 and whittled their lead to 3Vi games. It was New York's fifth defeat in seven games. Which means the second-place White Sox. who have won six straight, can edge within three percentage points of the champs —if they can sweep the three- game set. Only one other AL game was scheduled Monday and as far as the A's are concerned it shudda rained in Kansas City. Boston bopped, 'em 16-0. Braves Slip Jn the National, Milwaukee's Braves slipped to a seven-game edge over idle St. Louis and Brooklyn in a 4-3 defeat at Philadelphia. That gave the Phils sole possession of fourth place as the New York Giants clubbed Cincinnati to fifth 17-3. Stengel, with pitching worries aplenty, started southpaw Tommy Byrne against the Tigers. But when the veteran hit a batter, walked another, gave up a home run to slugging Al Kaline and walked the next man, Casey called it quits and called in young Johnny Kucks in the first. * Kucks did all right, giving up two runs on six hits the rest of the way, but it was too late. After Frank Lary gave up Mickey Mantle's two-run 33rd homer in the first, the Tiger right-hander blanked the Yanks on seven hits. Casey gambled in using Kucks, and not waiting out the usually wild Byrne, and lost a starter for the Chicago series. Kaline Homer 17th ' Kaline's homer was his nth- third in the two-game Detroit sweep—and helped push him to .300 for the first time since June. Mantle's^ average also went up, but at *377 he stayed two pointa back of Boston's Ted Williams, who was 2-for-4 for .379. The Phillies blew a 3-0 lead before beating, the Braves on Ron Northey's pinch bases-loaded single in the ninth. Ed Mathews' two-run single had tied it for Milwaukee in the eighth and when Wes Covington and Bob Hazle singled to open the ninth, 16-game winner Jack Sanford hit the showers. Dick Farrell relieved and retired the side for his sixth victory. Ernie Johnson lost it in relief. mm * 4 0 YES/.
