A VYW EIGHTS

'Greatest', Bear
Set on Rematch

t

LOUISVILLE (P)-Brash young
avyweight champion Cassius
ay said yesterday he might train
Egypt, Algeria or Ghana for
s return match with Sonny Lis-
in,
"I got offers from all those
aces to train there," said the 22-
ar-old Louisville fighter who
ptured the title with a tech-
cal knockout of Liston five
onths ago.
The site and date must be work-
, out.
"Our target date actually is
onday, Sept. 28," said Clay's
anager, Bill Faversham.
"We hope to hold the bout be-
re the World Series, which be-
ns the first week in October."
Jack Nilon, who represented
ston at the signing, said Louis-
Ile, Las Vegas and Baltimore are
ssible sites.

CASSIUS CLAY
a i

"I'd love to have the fight here.
Las Vegas does not have enough
seating and Baltimore would
black out too many closed-circuit
areas of high population density,"
said Nilon.
Liston signed Monday night
in Philadelphia, a few hours after
Clay signed in Louisville.
When the champ signed, he
wrote "Muhammad Ali, AKA also
known as Cassius M. Clay' Jr."
Clay was given the name Muham-
mad Ali when he joined the Black
Muslims.
Intercontinental Promotions, Inc.,
which staged the first fight in
Miami Beach Feb. 25, also will
put on this one.
"Where it will be depends in
part on where we can get the best
guarantee. That will be settled
within the next 72 hours," said In-
tercontinental's secretary, Garlan
A. Cherry, at Chester, Pa., yes-
terday.
The rematch offers each fight-
er 30 per cent of the gross re-
ceipts. Clay got 221/2 per cent and
Liston 37/ InItheir first fight.
About half of Clay's purse had
been held in escrow as insurance
he would sign for a rematch.
Cherry said he gave Clay a cer-
tified check for that amount,
$258,378.
Bears Pay
Respects
'To Pals.
RENNSELAER, Ind. (P) - A
solemn group of 55 Chicago Bears
and their coaches attended fun-
eral services yesterday for half-
back Willie Galimore and end
John Farrington.
A sorrowful gathering of 150
paid last respects to the two star
players killed. in an auto crash
Sunday night on a country road
near their training camp at St.
Joseph's College.
Mrs. Willie Galimore came from
the family home in Tallahassee,
Fla. She was accompanied by her
brother, Josephus Abrams, and
his wife, of Chicago.
Mrs. Galimore, mother of three
small children, sat as if stunned
throughout the services, conduct-
ed by the Rev. W. E. Vannest of
the Church of the Nazarene.
Afterwards, she broke down in
hysterical sobs, fainted and had
to be carried into a waiting car.
The bodies of the two players
were to"be flown to their home
cities from Chicago.
Accompanying Farrington's body
on the plane to Houston was
teammate Charlie Bivins. Far-
rington's wife, married to the star
end last'March, was so shaken by
the tragedy that she was unable
to leave Houston.
Going with Mrs. Galimore and
Willie's body was teammate J. C.
Caroline. Burial will be in Talla-
hassee.
Funeral ceremonies were simple.
Requiem high mass was sung in
St. Joseph's chapel. Another was
sung in New York City by Father
Dudley, unofficial chaplain of the
New York Giants, whom the Bears
defeated last December for the
National Foobtall League cham-
pionship.
George Halas, owner-coach of
the Bears, called the team out for
a full-uniform afternoon practice.
"All this has been a mighty
blow," the saddened Halas said.
"But we will try to get hustling
again in practice."

MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. R)
-The two boats with the highest
indicaps apparently have taken
le two over-all top spots in the
3-mile Chicago to Mackinac
acht race.'
The 30-foot sloop Talisman,
wned by George A. Quandee of
hicago, crossed the line at 8:33
esterday morning and earned the
est corrected time yet calculated.
Because the Talisman has the
eatest handicap, it was impos-
bie for any boat which finished
hind her to post a better cor-
.cted time.
The apparent No. 2 .over-all
nisher was the 3,0-foot yawl Blue
harm, owned byj Don Witlenberg
Chicago. With the second best
rrected time as yet and the sec-
Ad highest handicap, its spot
hind the Talisman appeared
cure.
In terms of time elapsed since1
e race got underway Sunday, the
alisman finished well behind the
ack-leading Gypsy, which cross-
i the line here at 12:53 a.in.-
me 20 miles ahead of the No. 2
itena. Gypsy ran the length of
ake Michigan in 58 hours, 38
Minutes, 45 seconds.
When corrected times were cal-
lated, Gypsy earned only a
:56.08 clocking. It took Talisman
z an actual 67:33.08 to complete
.e course, but her corrected time
is 51:24.10.
Corrected time for Blue Charm
as 51:27.40. By noon yesterday
>out 25 yachts still had not yet
nished the race.

J.S.-Russia Meet Raises
luestion About Olympics

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (R) -- One
f America's top track experts
aid yesterday that "Maybe Father
'ime has run out on the Rus-
ans."* But he quickly cautioned
gainst over-optimism about Unit-
d States chances of a big team
ictory in the Tokyo Olympics.
In the U.S.-Russian meet in
,os Angeles last' weekend, the
rnited States won with a sur-
risingly strong showing.
"It is difficult to assess the
eal meaning of the Los Angeles
meet," Ed Temple of Tennessee
&I University said. Temple will
:oth the U.S. women's 'track
eam in the Olympics in October.
Peaking
Temple sail all countries which
'ill send teams to Tokyo are fac-
ig the same problems at this
me of year-preparing their ath-
tes to hit repeated peaks of per-
ormance at the proper moments.

139-97, and the-U.S. women made
a fiie showing, even in losing
59-48.
"Are the Russians just begin-
ning to hit their peaks? Are we
at our peak too soon? It's diffi-
cult to say, and we just won't
know until Tokyo. I like to think,
of course, that' we'll handle the
Russians over there. Nothing's cer-
tain," Temple said.
Older
Temple pointed out that the
Russian track teams in the past
years have had a higher average
age than American teams.
"They average about 26 or 27
and we only average about 19."
The Russians retain their ath-
letes from year to year, and they
begin to hit their peaks in the
middle or late 20's, Temple said.
The United States must keep
finding new talent for its teams
since many athletes discontinue
