THURSDAY, JANUARY K BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.> COURIER NEWS VAGE FIVE Charles to Get Heavy Title Go June Date Mentioned After Satterfield KO By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (AP) — A revitalized Ezzard Charles dropper, a bomb on Bob Satterfieid in Chicago Stadium last nigh to touch off a gigantic buildup for a heavyweight title bou with champion Rocky Marciano. Charles, who gets a chance to* . who _ become the first fighter In history to regain the heavyweight crown, pole-axed Satterfield in the first minute of the second round with one of the hardest left hooks he ever has thrown. On Bottom Satterfield, outweighed 180 to 189 and a 7-2 underdog, was set up for the mighty finishing blow by absorbing a right to the midsection. As he started to bend forward, C h a r 1 e s' pistonlike left caught him flush on the chin. He went over backwards and hit the canvas so hard resin dust flew. He lay lifelessly until Referee Frank Gilmer tolled out seven. Then he raised his head feebly, but he couldn't get up, and he tooi the full count flat on his back. Thirty minutes later, he was still dazed and unable to remember clearly what happened. The fight was scheduled for 10 rounds. A national television audience, and 4,921 ringside customers who contributed to a net gate of $13,949.24, saw one of the cleanest, and most brutal, knockouts in years. Way Is Cleared The International Boxing Club waste'd no time in clearing the way for the 32-year-old Charles, who lost the title to Jersey Joe Walcott July 18, 1951, to try to recapture it from Maricano. The bout is being planned for June in a New York ball park. "Charles has earned the chance," said Truman Gibson, IBC secretary. "It will not be necessary for him further to prove his right as the No. 1 contender." "All I want is a title shot," said Charles. "I'll fight anybody to get it — (Nino) Valdes, (Dan) Bucceroni, (Eoland) Lastarza. You name him, I'll fight him."

No Change In Rules On Subs 'Unethical 1 Practices Are Branded By BEN FUNK SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) College football must keep its one-platoon system and must get rid of such practices as the faked injury and the sucker shift. This verdict was handed down yesterday by the Football Rules Committee of the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. The committee turned down all efforts to liberalize the limited substitution rule which went into effect last season and proved immensely popular with football .ns. Practice Condemned The most surprising development of the meeting was the strong condemnation of such "nonethical" ^radices as injury faking to stop :he clock and false starts intended to pull the opposition offside. In what appeared to be mainly slap at Notre Dame, the committee unanimously approved resolution declaring that injury Inking is '"dishonest, unsportsman- ike and contrary to the rules." Notre Dame players were accused last season of feigning in- uries in the Iowa game to Etop .he clock and gain time for touchdowns in the closing seconds of each half. These scores enabled the Irish to escape with a 14-14 tie. New Rules Loom During the 1952 season Notre Dame figured most prominently in several sucker shift incidents. Last season, there were reports of such incidents in the Southeastern and Missouri Valley conferences. The Rules Committee said that, for the present, it \vould "rely on the integrity of the coaches and players rather than upon further legislation" to wipe out these unethical procedures. If this doesn't succeed, Committee Chairman H. L. (Fritz) Crisler of the University of Michigan said, the rule book will be rewritten. Committee Secretary E.E. Wieman of the University of Denver said minor revisions may be made in the substitution rule in future, but "two-platoon football is dead as a duck."

William GlQssford has made it plain, "I'm still football coach at the University of Nebraska." But even Bill Olnssford was not saying how long he expects to keep his $12,500 a year job.
