NEW YORK () - Joe Frazier
chopped up a game Jerry Quarry
with a merciless two-fisted attack,
opening a gash under the chal-
lenger's right eye, to successfully
defend his piece of the world
heavyweight title last night on a
technical knockout at the end of
the seventh round.
Dr. Harry Kleiman ordered re-
feree Arthur Mercante to stop the
battle after examining Quarry in
his corner after the seventh
Referee Mercante said Quarry
admitted to him that he could not
see out of his right eye. He wept
when the bout was stopped.
Quarry, a blue-eyed blond from
Bellflower, Calif., came out burn-
ing like he said he would and met
the champion head on for a wild
first round in which neither would
Frazier took over in the second
round, refusing to give Quarry
punching room as he began to
work over Quarry with both
hands. It was Frazier all the way
after the 'first, especially after
Quarry's right eye opened in the
first seconds of the fourth round.,
fIt was obvious that, Quarry,
counting desperatelyton catching
Frazier early, had run out of
steam and was bothered increas-
ingly, by the cut eye.
While he still had all his
strength, Quarry was a rough,
tough opponent for the champ but
he simply could not carry on a
consistent attack against the
After the fight, there was an
exchange in mid-ring for the
benefit of the television cameras
between Frazer and Jimmy El-
lis, the World Boxing Associa-
tion's champion. At one stage, El-
lis shook his fist at Frazier who
responded in kind, straining to
get away from his handlers.
Frazier, a 2-1 favorite, w a s
making the fourth defense of his
six-state title within a year. He
is recognized as world champ by
New York, Massachusetts, Illin-
ois, Maine, Pennsylvania and
Texas. A match with Ellis is a
likely next step.
There were no knockdowns in
the scheduled 15-round match
between the unbeaten former
Olympic champ and the man who
lost to Ellis in the WBA finals.
Quarry was the picture of self
confidence as he climbed into the
right in his pink trunks with a
blue, lucky golf hat perched on
his head. He bowed to the crowd
as he doffed his hat to an ovation.
The challenger was the people's
Thoice but the champ proved to be
definitely the better fighter.
The slope-shouldered challeng-
er outmuscled Frazier in the first
round, banging his right to the
chin two or three times. A few of
his blows strayed below the belt
line as did some of Frazier's later
in the fight.
It was Frazier, however, w h o
drew the only warning from ref-
eree Mercante who said "keep
them up Joe" in the sixth.
Frazier was way out front on
all three official cards when the
bout ended. Referee Mercante and
judge Tony Castellano had it 6-1
and judge Bill Rec had it 5-1-1, all
for Frazier. The AP card was 6-1
Frazier, winning his 24th
straight and scoring his 21st
knockout, came at Quarry with
both hands and refused to g i v e
the challenger any punching
room. It seemed to be just a mat-
ter of time after the cut opened
under the right eye.
There was a mouse under
Quarry's eye as he came out for
the fourth, and it immediately
started to bleed heavily. T h e
doctor went to his corner after
the fourth, and Quarry pleaded
with him, "Don't stop it.",

The Texas Wedge
'The Lackey and the Novice'
By DREW BOGEMA
Golf is a sordid business, almost the equivalent of pushilg
heroin or selling used cars; this much is clear.. Not that the
average Joe who likes to spend his leisure blasting from gravel
sand-traps, slicing brand-new Titlists, or digging up fairways
engages in a squalid, venal act whenever he pays his green fees.
No, he, unfortunately is only a'dupe of the international
clique that conspires to swindle his industrious labor and exotic
dreams for the vast and enticing allures, treasures, and tempta-
tions that the golf industry daily spits forth as merchandise.
The reactionary side of one's character holds forth the vision
of returning to the bonny highlands of distant Scotland where
golf was golf and men were men. When socialism comes to the
States, one cannot help but conclude, the golf industry should
be the first to go.
Imagine the number of obstacles that are placed in the path
of an enthusiastic novice who seeks to learn the nitty-gritty of
the game. First, one nust become equipped and fitted, an ex-
pensive venture, one that ranges in cost from five-hundred to
a thousand tomatoes.
"I'd like to learn how to play the game of golf," says our
brash and arrogant novice who has skipped the 5:13 from West-
chester to visit one of the City's finest public courses. "I've seen
the game played on the telly and I've decided to give it a go."
"YOU'LL NEED CLUBS," says the lackey behind the coun-
ter in the pro shop. -
"I had thought it possible to rent them," muttered our
somewhat confident novice.
"Ye Gods, my man! This is 1969!" cried the lackey. "Those
things simply aren't done any more! What would the other boys
say? What if word got out?" The lackey stared at the novice
like he was a leper from Ben-Hur, then, vigorously shook his
head in disgust.
Flustered by his ignorance, the novice toured the display
of clubs that lined the far wall of the pro shop. Minutes passed.
Finally, he spoke.
"How much does this run," he anxiously asked, pointing
to the latest brand of Extra-Super Haig Ultra's, with stainless
steel shafts, black-and-yellow speckled grips, and multi-colored
"Two-hundred and seventy-five," replied the lackey, his
eyes not moving from the racing form that he was filling with
scribblings, "and that's twenty below Lankshie Country Club
across the street."
"Two-hundred and seventy-five dollars for nine irons and
four woods?" asked the novice incredulously. "Why that's ri-
"Indeed it is," countered the lackey. "Thats two-hundred
and seventy-five dollars for nine irons. The four woods will set
you back another two hundred. And that, my dear sir, is the
cheapest we have," he proudly asserted.
"I'LL TAKE THEM," stammered the novice after a heavy
"Now about a bag," came the voice 'from behind the count-
er, "we have over fifty different varieties on stock, all made
of the most exquisite and precious leather. Or, if you wish to
wait a week, one can choose from among the thousand that
can be ordered."
"The green one,"- muttered the novice, pointing to the
small Sunday bag that had been leaned against the glass case
of the counter.
"Ah, yes," cried the lackey, "an excellent choice. Only fifty
"That should do it, shouldn't it?" asked the novice. "Why
don't you give me an instruction book, and I'll be ready for
my first round sometime next week. It won't take long for me
to learn the ropes," he arrogantly boasted.
"My dear fellow! You're not through yet! What do you ex-
pect to walk the course in - tennis shoes? As for learning the
ropes, the pro will help you do that. And what about balls, grips,
tees, caddy carts, a shag bag, shag balls, towels, and the infin-
ite variety of accessories we have in stock that promises to whip
your drive in shape in a week, and give you a sound rap when-
ever you face a long snake of a putt? What about the necessary
attire if you're to dress for the course?"
"The pro? Is he free?" asked the novice, a hopeful grin
lighting his face.
"Free? Free? Heavens no! How do you expect him to make
a living? By selling lost golf balls?" boomed the lackey. "No,
he charges twenty dollars a lesson, which is thirty cheaper than
the private pro across the street. YOU'LL probably need ten
lessons before you're ready to take on that tough darling of
a course we have here."
"Can I put this on layaway?" asked the novice, "I just
remembered that I won't have all the time I thought I might
have had to learn the game." The novice was lying through his
teeth. He had lots of time. He had just remembered what his
wife would say when he brought home five hundred dollars
worth of golf equipment, and told her that three-hundred more
for accessories was in the offing. She would butcher him

JOE FRAZIER lands a hard left hook and sends Jerry Quarry
reeling into a corner in action early in last night's heavyweight
