There was a time, and not too
very long ago either, when the
heavyweight championship was
more than just a resting place for
the best heavyweight of the time.
In fact, that glamorous posi-

scene of many of the greatest
battles in fighting annals. Ihe
champion often put his title at
stake, pitting himself against the
best available challengers of the
Defends Title.
It was not strange for Joe Louis,
for example, to defend his title
three or four times" a year against
top contenders. And in his prime,
in 1941, the Browi Bomber put
his crown at stake seven times.
More recently, Rocky Marciano
always defended his title twice a
year against the best available
talent which, although not always
spectacular, was usually formid-
But today the heavyweight title
scene is not the picture of activity
it used to be. Current champ Floyd
Patterson has defended his crown
only three times since he gained
it over two years ago by defeating
Archie Moore in a tournament to
fill the title Marciano vacated
upon retiring.
This year Patterson's only de-
fense has been his twelve round
knockout of Roy Harris in Los An-
geles last August. Although the
Elarris fight was not the insulting
mismatch the champ's previous
title fight with Pete Rademacher;
was, it was, nevertheless, a fight
lacking championship quality.
The immediate future does not
look much more active than the
past has been, although Patter-
son's manager, Cus D'Amato, haas
given the promise that the Champ
will see more action, if for no oth-
er reason than to prevent him
from becoming stableworn.
After the Harris fight, plans
were supposedly being made to ar-
range an indoor title fight with
Nino Valdes, not a particularly
great boxer, but one who would
be willing to mix it up with Pat-
terson. DAmato, however, could
not come to terms with Ned Irish,,
promoter for New York's Madison
Square Garden, nor anyone else
for that matter, and this fight,
along with the possibility of any
title fight this winter, fell by the
Many new title contenders have
now come into view, however, es-
pecially after the recent happen-
ings on the other side of the At-
lantic. England's Henry Cooper
decisioned Zora Folley, then thej
number one ranked heavyweight

contender, British champion Bri-
an London stopped fourth-ranked
Willie Pastrano in five, and Swe-'
den's Ingenjar Johansson knocked
out highly touted Eddie Machen
in the first round of their bout.
Confused Ratings
This threw the heavyweight
ratings into more confusion than
ever, but it did help, however, to
find a logical contender, originally
thought to be Folley, for Patter-
son's title.
" The man 'now thought and
hoped to be Patterson's next chal-
lenger is the 26-year-old Johans-
ion, European Heavyweight Cham-
pion, and the present first-ranked
contender for Patterson's crown.
'Outlook for this fight, which
could easily gross a million dol-
lars, is quite encouraging.
D'Amato chooses the fighters
for his boy as carefully as the
NCAA looks over a college sus-
pected of illegal recruiting. And
as hard as D'Amato wishes to
look, he will find no reason to pre.
vent Johansson from fighting
Patterson. Especially encouraging
is that Johansson is in no way
connected with the International
Boxing Club, the organization
with which D'Amato is waging
his personal war.
A finalist in the heavyweight
division of the 1952 Olympics,'Jo-
hansson jumped into stardom with
his furious assault of Machen.
The undefeated contender's vic-
tories over London and tough
Archie McBride, along with the
Machen bout, rank as highlights
of his fistic career.
The results of this fight would
be felt on the boxing world itself,
which is now on many fronts a
rapidly dying sport. Only a big
fight, the kind a Patterson-
Johansson match would be, could
snap it out of its doldrums.

The problem wad not that
Marty had fallen in love with
a shirt. After all, he was
a Philosophy major.
The trouble was ... Marty
was in love with two shirts.
With Shirt No. 1, the Van
Heusen Century, the serious
Marty spent hours in heaven-
ly bliss. He worshipped the
revolutionary soft collar that
won't wrinkle ever. It was
Century's one-piece construc-
tion that drove him wild.
(Other collars never did any-
thiug for our boy Marty, ex-
cept wrinkle madly. You see,
other collars are three pieces,
fused or sewn together.)
With Shirt No.2, the amaz-
ing Van Heusen "Vantage,"
the gay, frivolous Marty lived
the life of carefree abandon.He

could wear it and wear it--
wash it-drip-dry it, or have
it tumble-dried automatically
--and wear it again in a matter
of hours. It was the most mon-
ey-saving love he ever had.
But when Marty was with
one shirt, he missed the other.
It was terrible. Like so many
others with the same problem,
Marty wrote to us. And so
it came to pass that the Van
Heusen "Century-Vantage"
was born. This shirt combined
theadvantagesof eachintoone
great shirt-a wash and wear,
no-iron, all cotton broadcloth
shirt with the soft collar that
won't wrinkle ever! And just
$5! Have you a problem?
