(AP) — The Sonny Liston-Floyd Patterson-re- mismatch, if there is such a word, s now in the record books, possi- jly as an asterisk. Everything'' happened just as most people thought. It ended quickly. The champion made one miscalculation. Soon after he flattened Floyd in minutes, 6 seconds, in Chicago ast September, Sonny said Paterson could have the return go GOLFING NOTES GREATER ALTON The Greater Alton Women's Golf Association was the guest of ic Jerseyville Country Club uesday, and Mrs. -Helen Graham 'as the group medalist.

Oliver Honke won the'com- Ined first and second flight. but he wondered if anyone would be interested. "We could hold it in a telephone booth and, still have room," said Liston. _It turned out there were enough curiously crazy people to make it a $l-million venture. The closed- circuit television outlets may gross $1,250,000 and the gross gate here for the live "fight," was $286,180. Everything else Sonny said was true. He is not a boastful man. He deals in facts, facts as hard as his life has been. He said he would go. out swinging and Patterson would go out. After the fight Sonny ex- pressed disappointment to intimate friends, one of them his Las Vegas host, Ash Resnick. He said he was never able to hit Patterson with what he considered a really good punch. The fact that even an ineffective Liston punch, if there is such, did the job, was of no great consolation. Liston said the best one he landed was the finisher, a left hook that put Floyd flat on his back for the third and last time. Liston's plans are indefinite but Cassius Clay undoubtedly will be his next opponent. While a September date in Philadelphia has been forecast, the champion indicated he might not fight until next spring. U. S. Made Mistake Before Russ Scare WARSAW (AP) — Never again will the United States track team ;o to Moscow for the annual dual meet with the Soviet Union without slopping off for a warm-up meet first. That seemed certain today, after the coaches and officials had finished their analysis of the recent American invasion of Moscow that turned out only slightly better lhan Napoleon's, "I am making the very strong recommendation that we have at least one tune-up meet before the Russian meet in the future," coach Pay ton Jordan said here where the team is preparing for the meet with Poland Friday and Saturday. "I also think it is a good idea to get into Moscow only a day or two before the meet, and stay a few days afterward for sightseeing," Jordan said.

He won the Island PGA and that group's Open. But .in the first round of the 1963 Long Island Open Tom shot an 82 and was eliminated from he final two rounds, Those with 9 qualified. Tito Fnincona's homer in the 13th gave Cleveland and Jim (Mudcat) Grant a 3-2 victory over the Twins ending the Indians' losing string at nine games. The Orioles blanked Washington 4-0 behind left-hander Steve Barber. The Yankees? They won again, naturally, riding John Blanchard's home run slugging and the shutout pitching of Stan Williams and Steve Hamilton to a 7-0 romp over the Los Angeles Angels. Blanchard, the reserve outfielder filling in for the ailing Roger Marls, kept up his heavy hitting with a pair of homers for the Yanks, who clinched it with a six- run cluster in the fifth inning ngainsl the Angels. Hamilton, relieving Williams in the eighth with the bases filled, killed that threat by striking out three men in a row and com- pleted the shutout by getting out of another bases-loaded situation in the ninth. Paul Foytock was the losor. iSegui's breaking pilches and low fastballs checked the Red Sox and brought the right-hander his fifth victory in his last six decisions. In addition to his clinching grand slam in the opener, Cash bolted another homer in the second game as the Tigers swept the White Sox and finished the doubleheader with four hits.. His four- run homer came after Detroit had loaded the bases in the eighth with two out find gave the pitching victory to Hank Aguirrc, who scattered 11 hits. Al Kaline had three singles and three runs batted across in the second game, won by Bob Anderson over Dave DeBusschere. Maloney Registers 15th Victory, 1-0 By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)—Maturity and ability are two of the assets needed to become a winning major league pitcher and Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds has acquired both talents in one season. The 23-year-old right-hander, who in three previous seasons in the majors could amass only 17 victories, rang up his 15th of the year Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs with a magnificent one-hit, 1-0 triumph. Maloney, who has lost only three games this year in comparison to 20 in previous major league competition, considered his job against the Cubs the greatest of his career. Ellis Burton's single through the left side of the infield in the first inning was the only hit off Maloney who finished strong and struck out 13. Maloney is a product of Fresno, Calif., High School and played on the same prep team which had Dick Ellsworth of the Cubs as its star pitcher. "I played shortstop on the Listen Would Stack Up Well In Old Days •TORONTO (AP) — Take Jack Dempsey in his prime and match him with Sonny Listen and how would it come out? Take the word of an expert, there's just no telling. "It might have gone either way," said Dempsey. "This kind of a fighter is tough to fight. He's liable to lick anybody. "He's big and strong," the old heavyweight champion said of the latest titleholder. "And with today's crop of fighters, it may be some time before you'll be able to properly size him up." Dempsey, 68, in Canada to look over some, mining property in Quebec, said he had an invitation to watch the Sonny Liston-Floyd Patterson rematch on closed circuit television Monday night, but passed it up. Dempsey, who lost his title to one Tunney, then lost again in a rematch, said he quit the ring because "I didn't want to get hurt." Patterson, twice the victim of first-round knockouts, should do the same thing, he said.. For VACATION Money »•• ^PUBLIC FINANCE -^M*» - . . . Fast Service . . .

Alton— CL 4-3864 29 N, Wood River, Wood RIver-CL 4-4327 team," says Maloney, "and was used as a third pitcher when we got into tournaments. Dick and Len Rube were the team's regular pitchers." Ellsworth, who has a 13-7 record and will face Cincinnati today, signed a bonus contract the day after he graduated in 1958. Maloney went on to college for a semester and finally signed a bonus contract with the Reds in April 1959. He floundered until this season when he developed a sidearm fast ball and curve to go with his overhand fast ball and curve. "I finally got those other pitches to a point where I could control them and went from a loser to a winner," said Maloney. "This has to be the best game I've ever pitched. I had a good une in Milwaukee but this was better." Against Milwaukee on May 21 Maloney fanned 16 and had a two- hitter going when Manager Fred Hutchinson yanked him with one out in the ninth to preserve a 2-0 Cincinnati triumph. "He started to get wild in the ninth," said Hutchinson, "and I had to yank him. His fast ball was faster in that game but it was working better against the Cubs." Hutchinson says Maloney always had the arm to become a winner in .the majors. "He hit his stride now because he is mature. Talent isn't enough in the big leagues. You need experience and I think Jim's finally acquired enough maturity and experience to go along with his great arm." CLYDE AIMS HIGH ST.

(AP Wirephoto) All-Star Defense Much Better Than Last Year CHICAGO (AP)—Football is a balanced combination of offense and defense and that's what the College All-Stars hope to develop before meeting the Green Bay Packers in Soldier Field Aug. 2. The All-Stars are not too worried about their offense which will be led by some of the nation's top quarterbacks of 1962 to say nothing of a host of speedy backs. But the All-Stars suddenly find they might have a defense which can contain the National Football League champions. Head Coach Otto Graham and some expert observers watched the All-Star hold two drills Tuesday and all agreed the team appears to have a stronger defense than the 1962 squad which fell apart in the fourth quarter and lost to Green Bay, 42-20. Big linemen with speed to match their heftiness is the big reason that Graham and others believe the All-Stars might be able to contain the Packers and overcome the odds to win.
