Robinson Is v A Big Puzzle ThatPunches By JIMMY BRESLIN NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK - (NEA) - As it was supposed to be, Ray Robinson, the middleweight champion of the world, would come out under the bright lights of the Yankee Stadium ring, Sept. 23, and fight Carmen Basilio. the welterweight champ, before the first million dollar gate in the television age. But Robinson decided to call the fight off unless some impossible business demands were met and while he was arguing in that high- pitched voice of his, the International Boxing Club found its ticket sale had stopped cold and they doubted whether they could get it going again the original scale. Boxing people counted up something like 42 fights from which Robinson had pulled out. But, in the Basilio case, he was in line for a half million dollar payday. Why, everybody asked, would the guy put a payday such as this in jeopardy? No Sensible Answer Anybody who knows Ray Robinson, fighter and self-styled businessman, realizes it is impossible to come up with a sensible answer. He is a puzzle that can punch. "You make something out of the guy," Ernie Braca, who managed him for a time, snorted one afternoon. "If you come up with an answer tell my lawyer. He's handling my business with Robinson now." Braca has ulcers and spends his evenings refusing drinks and eating farina. He was fine before WAITING IT OUT .... For a time, Carmen Basilio thought fishing was all he would be doing at. his- Alexandria Bay, N. Y„ training camp. Ray Robinson was busy messing up the works* he took over Robinson. Jim Norris doubled over in his office and wound up placed on a stretcher— with Sugar Ray at his side — and was carted to a hospital. As a fighter, he is a question mark,-too. Once, he could do everything. Do it so well even the hardest old-ti.ners had lo go for him all the way. But now, at a claimed age of 37, he is a mystery. He flattened Bobo Olson, but Olson then went down against anybody. He looked pathetic against Gene Fullmer in a losing 15-r6und fight, but nailed wide- open Gene with a left hook in May at Chicago. If he hadn't nailed Fullmer, would he. have been able to win over IB? Was it a lucky punch? Or is he still such a workman that he has everything needed to take Basilio, who is lighter but comes more heavily armed than Fullmer? There is a debate over this. Private Ideas? Many suspected his motions this time come from his private ideas on what he has left. "He doesn't want to fight Basilio," Braca said. "He knows he's shot and he does not want a licking," others said. Against Fullmer, he made most forget he ever looked bad. It seemed to be a confident, planned move. Suck in Fullmef, pound rights to the body, then hook. Robinson had tried to set up " a couple of times before Fullmer went for it. But it was only the sixth round and it could have been his one way to win. Outside the ring, Robinson is even more complicated. He Is good-looking, dapper and he talks quickly and convincingly. He loves people around him, but does not seem to have a close friend. When Braca wanted him to hang up his gloves after a poor fight with Johnny Lombardo in Cincinnati, he was a tearful guy, pleading for another chance. He'd never forget Braca, he said. Now they don't even talk. Spahn and Stanford Step Closer To Completing Pitching Projects LEAHY FAVORITE SHERIDAN, Wyo.

By ED WILKS The Asaociated Preaa, Warren Spahn, an old hand at 36, and Jack Sanford, a rookie at 28, are a step closer td completing a pair of proud pitching projects now that they've bagged the National League lead with 17 vie- tories apiece. Spahn, Milwaukee's steady southpaw who claimed the 220th success of a 13-year career with a 9-5 decision at Cincinnati Friday night, can become the second major league lefty ever to win 20 or more eight times. And Sanford, a righthander who spent seven years in the minors before coming up with Philadelphia, is within range of becoming the first rookie to win 20 in the NL since 1947 after beating Pittsburgh 4-3. Spahn won his seventh in a row, but needed relief help as the Braves retained their seven-game lead. Brooklyn held on with a 10-0 job on the New York Giants behind Don Drysdale's three-hitter. Third-place St. Louis stayed 714 back with a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs, who had won six straight from the Cards. Bat Race Tightens In the American League, the hitting race between leader ted Williams of Boston and New York's Mickey Mantle narrowed to one point. Williams, marking his 39th birthday, was l-for-5. losing two points for a .377 average as the Timet Herald, Carroll) Iowa Saturday, Aug. 31, 1957 Red Sox ripped Baltimore 8-1. Mantle, playing despite bum legs, was 3-for-4 and took the home run lead with his 34th while picking up three points and closing to .376 as the Yankees lost to last-place Washington 4-2. The Yankees retained their 6V4- game edge over second-place Chicago, however, as Kansas City tripped the White Sox and Bob (No-Hit) Keegan 3-1. Cleveland closed within four percentage points of fourth-place Detroit with a 6-5, 10-inning victory over the Tigers in the other AL game. Spahn, already the leading 20- game winner among NL southpaws, can match the modern (post 1900) high set by Lefty Grove in the American League with the old Philadelphia Athletics and Red Sox. Eddie Plank, another onetime A's great, is the only other lefthander to have won 20 in seven seasons. Spahn had the help of four home runs, by Eddie Mathews, Carl Sawatski, Frank Torre and Wes Covington, in beating the Redlegs for the seventh straight time (six this year), but left in the seventh after giving up eight of Cincinnati's nine hits. Don McMahon, Bob Trowbridge and Taylor Phillips worked in relief before the Redlegs, now 2-15 against the Braves, finally gave In with the bases loaded in the ninth. Beats Pirates with 8 -Hitter Sanford, who has lost five while Spahn has lost eight, beat the Pirates with an eight-hitter in pursuit of a rookie-year 20 wlris, last achieved by Larry Jansen of the New York Giants. The Phils completed their scoring in three innings, with Gran Hamner driving in two runs, then left it to Sanford. Drysdale, the Dodgers' top winner, allowed only singler. and retired the last 13 in order while winning his 14th and fourth shutout. The Dodgers had i2 hits, including homers by Gil Hodges, Charlie Neal and Carl Furillo, Neal's three-run shot sealed an 11th defeat for Giant ace Ruben Gomel in the second. Southpaw Wilmer Mtzell won his sixth for the Cards, fanning 11 that sent the Cubs to a league strikeout record with 812. They had set the old mark with 806 in 1955. (The major league mark was set by Washington last year with 877). Rookie Moe Drabowsky struck out nine, but lost his 13th on two singles and Del Ennis' sacrifice fly in the ninth. Williams, moved to tears by a pre-game birthday party by fans in Baltimore, got his hit on his last at bat—an infield single on a close play. The Red Sox scored five in the sixth, two on Jackie Jensen's home run, as Bob Porterfield won his fourth with a six- hitter. Dupas Wins; Busso Wants Another Fight MIAMI BEACH, Fla. Mi-Ralph Dupas and Johnny Busso, two ranking lightweights, pounded each other savagely for ten rounds Friday night, and each said at the finish he wanted to fight again—Dupas for the championship and Busso to get revenge for losing a close decision. Dupas, native of New Orleans, ranks near the top among lightweights and wants a crack at the crown now worn by Joe Brown, a fellow townsman. Busso, a tough New Yorker, apparently was as strong at the finish as he was when he stepped into the ring. He stood dejectedly when the decision was announced, and his handlers immediately announced he wanted to fight Dupas again—in Madison Square Garden. Dupas scored with solid body blows but Busso took everything the stocky 21-year-old boxer sent his way and kept wading in, firing lefts and rights to the head. There were no knockdowns but each rocked the other with lightning blasts to the jaw. Busso was a 5 to 2 underdog at fight time but only one or two points separated them on three scorecards at the finish. One judge saw it for Dupas, 99-92, under Florida's system which gives the winner of a round 10 points and the loser nine points or less. Dupas, speaking through his co- manager Angelo Dundee, said he wanted to fight Joe Brown of New Orleans for the title. JENSEN ELIMINATED HUNTINGTON, N.Y. m — Erling Jensen of Ames, Iowa, was eliminated from the Eastern Senior Grass Court tennis tournament Friday by third seeded Alex Wellford of Memphis, Tenn., 6-3, 6-3. Wellford meets W. E. Hester Jr., of Jackson, Minn., in Saturday's finals. GRIM WINS AT FAIR DES MOINES (JV— Bobby Grim of Indianapolis won his second main event big car race at the Iowa State Fair Friday night. Grim won in 13 minutes, 21.49 seconds in the 30-lap race. Don Carr of Detroit was second. Bob Cleberg of Rio, Wis., leader for the first nine laps, lost a tire and had to drop out of the race. FASTEST QUALIFIER DARLINGTON, s!c..<#l - Tiny Lund of Harlan, Iowa, Saturday held the fastest qualifying time for Monday's running of the $53,000 Souther 500-mile stock car race. Lund turned in a 117.920 mile an hour performance in Friday's qualifying. - - Lopez Holds On to Slim Hope By FRANK CRAWFORD KANSAS CITY (ff> — "Don't let anyone tell you we are out of it," said Al Lopez, manager of the lagging Chicago White Sox. "We have been a comeback club all season." Lopez, whose club had just lost three straight to the league leading New York Yankees, watched his charges in hitting practice before Friday night's game with the seventh-place Kansas City Athletics. Three hours later his players had shown more eloquently than anyone would speak that the White Sox won't overhaul the Yankees—barring a miracle. They couldn't fathom the southpaw pitching repertoire of the A's Alex Kellner and collapsed whenever they had a chance to knock in runs. Eight of them struck out. Minnie Minoso, their leading run producer, whiffed three times. The Sox left nine men stranded on the bases and lost, 3-1, In the afternoon, the Yankees had lost to Washington, and their lead over the Sox was cut to six games. If the Chicagoans could take the Athletics, Lopez explained, they would trail by only five games. "It wasn't too long ago we were trailing by seven," he said, "and we cut it down to three on the lost side of the standings. Then we lost three tough ones in Chicago. But we could have won any of the three games with a little more hitting." The hits didn't come Friday night, either, and Lopez, for all his optimism, must have seen his chances glimmering. His club has only 27 more games to play. Picking up a 6Vi game margin in that stretch is not impossible but Lopez didn't care to hazard how it could be done. "We are just going to keep on giving it our best, I've said it before and I'll say it again, 'this club won't fold up.'"

By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editdr • SAN- FRANCISCO - (NEA) Contractor Charles L. Harney is tucking the grandstand of the Giants' new baseball park back into a 190-foot hill which will act as a break,against the cold wind and San Francisco's.famous fog, ..... Experts on the subject contend that the new plant at Candlestick Point in the city's Bay View district will be much better protect* ed against the elements than the present Seals Stadium. A lot of outsiders contend that summer nights in the Golden City are too windy and cold for baseball. Bill Veeck, making a survey for major league ball in California, suggested that a new-San Francisco layout be heated.. So many customers were frozen out in 1955 that the new owners, the. Boston Red Sox, had the ' Seals play only in the afternoon in '56 but that didn't work either. Object to Weather Walter Malls, who is in a position to know best, says that visitors and Johnny Come Latelys object to the San Francisco baseball weather, which has been unusually favorable this season, by the way. Mails, the celebrated duster who helped the Cleveland Indians to the world championship in 1920, points to the minor league record of 670,546 paid admissions at Seals Stadium in 1946. He says, and we agree, the weather business is over-worked. "It was the large segments of people brought to San Francisco by World War II who put the rap on our baseball weather," contend? Mails, who pitched for the Seals for 10 years and has been their ptiblic relations director for 20. "Like any story, it got bigger with each retelling until they had clubs playing here in snow up to their knees. "The people embellishing this yarn, don't know what fog is. Listen to them, you'd think we need a fog horn at the plate and a lantern at each base." Unlike most San Franciscans, Mails doesn't wear a topcoat oa July and August evenings. Summer Resort "The people here enjoy the good weather. San Francisco is a top summer resort," he stresses. "The weather won't keep them away from the Giants' games. Give them a show and they'll come out. I don't contend that San Francisco will be another Milwaukee, but I'm certain the Giants will play to 1,250,000 in each of the first three years. After that, when the newness wears off. the Giants will be on their own. But attendance will never drop as low as it has at the Polo Grounds." Outside of baseball, San Fran< cisco long has been a big league town used to the best. It will go along with a second division club, but not one that's down in the dumps too long. It's like any other city in that respect. The Giants are going to be sorely handicapped by lack of seating accommodations well into next season, for Contractor Harney says he cannot hope to complete the new park before July 1. This means a capacity of no more than 18,075 at the present Seals Stadium until then. The Dodgers have to play at Los Angeles Wrigley Field, where there are only a little more than 23,000 seats, all next season. That is, if they come — and out here' it's taken for granted. . These historic franchise switches remain inconceivable. No one can understand why the American League, after having a foot* hold in San Francisco, is turning California, over to the National. . More Unbelievable Even more incredulous is the National League abandoning the New York metropolitan area and its 14 million people to the American. Perhaps the most implausible of all is the Giants and Dodgers rushing to the Golden West before suitable parks have been built. At any rate, the San Francisco Giants are a reality. Wow on to Los Angeles and Dodger, doings. Lonesboro's Protest Against D.C. Upheld MANNING - Softball tournament officials here Friday upheld a protest by Lanesboro and ruled that the Lanesboro team was 7-0 winner against Dow City Wednesday night. • , Lanesboro had protested a 10-2 loss to Dow City, contending that team had used an ineligible player.
