Stabilization Board that its new order governing baseball pay ceilings be relaxed to meet critical situations. Kieran, former sports columnist, served as a one-man panel at a hearing here yesterday when baseball's legal representatives branded the government's policy as "unworkable." The decree, issued January 17. stipulates that a club's overall payroll budget for 1952 can't exceed that of 1951. It also gives the club the privilege of fixing ' its salary scale on a formula based on any season's payroll between 1946 and 1950, plus ten per cent. in the past, 'the government's salary restrictions dealt with in.- clividuals, limiting players salaries to the highest pay received by a member of the club. "The new order is quite different and some of the clubs were caught off guard and will have to make adjustments," Kieran said after the two-hour hearing. "I am sympathetic with baseball's problems. I'll,, recommend special cases be taken care of." Louis F. Carroll,' attorney for the National League, said the latter order worked a hardship on such dubs as the Brooklyn Dodgers, who had about two-thirds of their players signed-when the formula was announced, and tile St. Louis Browns, who would like to Walcott's Next Opponent Still Undetermined Miami, Fla.-(/P)-The great dc' bate between promoter Jim Norris | and Jersey Joe Walcott's maanager continues today with the date, site arid opponent of-the heavyweight champ's next light still indefinite!.

"I think we have reached some m u t u a l grounds in our negotiations. "As far as I'm concerned a Walcott-Ezzard Charles match is the only possibility. And the Charles people feel the same way. After all we have a contract for a return bout." Bocchicchio wants permission to by-pass Charles and fight Rocky Marciano, the unbeaten slugger from Brockton, Mass. The Charles camp is holding firm to its demands fod fulfillment of the return bout contract signed last year before Charles was knocked out by Jersey Joe in Pittsburgh. .It was understood Bocchicchio's latest proposition amounted to a $100,000 guarantee to Charles from a proposed Marciano-Walcott gate. If Charles would agree to step aside, Bocchicchio's plan also would assure Charles of a 30-30 percentage split with the winner in June. However, Charles isn't buying, according to Norris. Wildcat Offense Rumbling Along At Record Pace New York-(/P)-If Kentucky, the nation's No. J college basketball team, continues its present scoring pace, the Wildcats will set a per game scoring record. The present mark is 82.5 set by Rhode Island State in 1047. Kentucky is going along at the rate of 83.5 points-pcr-game through las Saturday, according to statistic released today by the Nationa Collegiate Athletic Bureau. Even if the Wildcats don't brea Rhode Island State's standard they are practically assured of be coming the only other major tean in history to maintain an 80-point pcr-gamc record over an entir season. The Rhodics tunic* the tricV Lhrce times, but the next best i the 77 per game set by Cincinnat in 1950-51. A good indication of the way basketball has opened up this yea: can be scon by the points-pcr-gami records of the teams trailing Ken lucky. Duke is second with 79.£ and Holy Cross third with 78.8. Dcfensisve figures show Okla homa A. and M. ruling the roos. with a low average'yield of 44.5 points-per-gamc, followed closely by Oklahoma City with 45.9. During the '51 season, four National Leaguers took part in all their team's games--Gil Hodges, Carl Furillo, Earl Torgeson anc Richie Ashburn.

Something must have happenec in the past 1C years that nobody Lold us about, because it wouk have called for a saliva test if any of this nation's skiiers or skaters or distance jumpers had come up with a first place in what the Nazi's insisted upon calling "Oui Olympics." The best we had were a couple of fair gal figure skaters. The res' were along strictly for tiie ride and the picture postcard scenery Of the 277 players who participated in National League games in J95I' 231 took part in 10 01 ' more games. ALL --£r every drop! Extra Smooth! * Extra Satisfying! The only thing that kept our '30 team from being the most futile group ever gathered under the starry banner was the presence in Germany of a set of large, gusty individuals from up around Lake Placid who wrestled pet bears for exercise back home. They were Uncle Sam's bobsledders and they were trained to razor edge on steak, rich pastries and wildcat milk. They were, in every respect, a splendid body of men. They hadn't been out of the woods long and they might have been n trifle unpredictable under certain circumstances, but they could ride those big sleds down the mountain with any blamed Europeans ever born. The will to win flamed hotly in their broad chests and they trained and practiced with an admirable intensity. · As it hapened, this devotion to duty gained for this reporter what he likes to think was the finest scoop of a rather lengthy career. The groundwork was laid, during a training season' with Ivan Brown, who steered one of the American two-man sleds, and Bob Washbond, the cheerful fatalist who rode with him. "Do yon want a real story?" demanded Brown during a break in the training routine. "I mean something worth sending home-not stuff like you've been sending about these skaters. None of them t worth a damn." -We assured him such an item would be more than welcome. "Well," said Ivan, "you tell 'em that Bob and me are going to win the only gold medal for America in these whoLi Olympics. I guarantee we'll make it stand up for you." Cautiously, so as to offer no oossible affront, Ivan was asked how he could be so positive about "I'll tell you that, too," he replied. "It's 'because Bob, here, hai the broadest hips of any .bobber in the world. When he bobs, that sled of ours jumps obout.20 feet. All I've got to do is hold her on the track." Washbond only smiled modestly, but a casual examination, of his qualifications disclosed that Brown probably was dead right in at least one respect. That .was good enough for me. Within a matter of hours the wires were humming with the tremendous news that Brown and Washbond were going to save the U.S. from a shutout. Well, there was a certain amount of worrying done within the next week or so. Ivan was asked a number of times if he still was dead sure about winning and he always said "you just forget about it--you're in." Even so, there was a slight uneasiness right up to the moment they called out the final times. Ivan and Bob won it, of course, and that was the only thing the Americans did win. You can look it up.
