If Jake doesn't sign up by Feb. 1, he'll declare the I tie vacated and set up a tournament among the four leading chal- engers. He didn't name the con- enders. That leaves the door open for Jake to be stripped of his New York .title but still retain it m the National Boxing Association states which do not always cooperate with the Nek York commission. Abe Greene of Paterson, N. J., commissioner of the NBA I* hold- ng his fire. He won't make any announcement of the NBA's-stind until all members have had a shance. to read : a letter stating ..a Motta's intentions. The letter, also read to the New rork Commission yesterday by fake, was written by La Motta'.s attorney, H. Jordan Lee &f, New Tork, in response to a query .from Greene, "He (La Motta) Intends to de- end his title in June, 1950," the etter read in part, "this would ?lve him an opportunity to. have wo or three warmup fights in or- ler to get back In condition, for le is now fully aware, after his most recent fistic encounter, that t is Imperative that he regain the orm and condition which he possessed when he acquired the itlo. La Motta feels that the inly way to do this is in the ring." La Motta, whose six-month per- od of grace expired Dec, IS, listed six men who have "good and logical reasons for being the number one contender," They were Robert Vlllemaln of France 1 , Dave Jands, of Australia, Ray Robinson, Steve Bellolse and Rocky Graiuiano of New York and Laurent Dauthuille of France. La Motta signed for a return >out with Marcel Cerdan, Dec. 2, mt the French ex-champ was tilled in a plane crash en route o New York. Later La Motta was beaten by Vlllemaln, Dec. 9, n an over • the -weight - jnatch. Sagan has expressed a desire that Villemaln be given a title shot but yesterday, .'he asked Jake to. sign for a bout with Vlllemalri or "another leading contender". The business of dual champions n the middleweight class started n 1931 when Mickey Walker quit he class, Gorilla Jones won the NBA tournament and Ben Jeby was accepted in New York., Jones went-to Europe and lost to Marcel Thll of France. It went on Jllte that for years with varying degrees of confusion until Billy 1 Soose, the New York champ, left the division In 1941 and Tony Zale, NBA champ, de- eated Georgle Abrams, the outstanding contender.

DETROIT, Dec. 31.— (&)— The auto industry, wound up Its biggest year today with an indicated output, In round figures, of 6,200,000 vehicles, - ' What it will do production-wise In 1950, of course, depends on the nation's buying, power. The auto makers know demand hasn't been satisfied. But they' know, .too, a more selective tendency has developed among car buyers. Knowing this, the car makers have been cutting price corners Whereever possible. None of the reductions so far announced have been of major proportions excepting as; they affected so-called luxury models, like station wagons and convertibles. Automotive circles hear considerable talk about 1950 production equalling that of 1949. However, every make of automobile is being given more promotion right now than at any time since the war. Some industry sources say the auto plants will build an average of 600,000 vehicles ,a month at least from January through April of the new ytar. That means a sizable „ stock of cars will be in dealers' hand? when the spring selling season gets under way in March.
