Floyd Floors Johansson in Sixth Round
MAN 'f" #tet 'With Left Hook-Right Cross Combination

McRae Seeks Win Over Jones
After ComingClose Last Week

Patterson fell down as he miss-
ed a right in the second and
slipped down again in the third
after scoring with some solid left
The champ's hooks piled up
points and began to wear down
Ingemar in the fourth and fifth
as he went to the attack with
both hands.
The Swede, heaviest of his ca-
reer at 20611 pounds, stepped up
the attack at the beginning of the
sixth. A series of rights made
Patterson grab. Excited by this
success, Johansson was chasing
patterson with long right hand
Suddenly Patterson struck back
with a hook. He followed with a
right uppercut that missed. Then
came the left hook, followed by
the chopping right that ended
Johansson's hopes.
Referee Regan, who counted out
the 28-year-old, said:
"I had just finished the count
of a full ten when he (Jdhansson)
tried to get up. He didn't make the
"When I took him to the cor-
ner, he didn't know where he was;
at. He was bleary-eyed and could-
n't have continued anyway."
Patterson, also heaviest of his
career at 194 pounds, was wild
and lacked the precision that he
showed last June in this fight. He
let Johansson back him up on
occasion and had plenty of trouble
getting out of the way of that
stiff right hand.
There was no debate about the
right hand hurting Patterson this
time. He was down twice and-stag-
gered at least, twice. Last June
much was made of Johansson's.

This time he kept pouring it on

Big Ten hurdles king Bennie
McRae will get another shot athis
nemisis, Hayes Jones, this Friday
night at the Knights of Columbus
meet in Cleveland.
But only a supreme effort by the
Michigan flash ,will beat the ex-
Eastern Michigan star, who has
already conquered him three times
this winter.

Jones," ventures track coach Don

Canham, "but he may not get too
many more chance to prove it."
After the Knights of Columbus
meet the Wolverine trackmen will
be idle until April 8, when they
will take part in the University
Relays at Athens, Ohio.
For McRae, the Cleveland meet
may be his last chance to beat
Jones. Already in this campaign
the swift 'Jones has whipped Mc-
Rae in the Los Angeles Invita-
tional, the Chicago Relays, and
Saturday night at the Milwaukee
Journal Games.
At Los Angeles in early February
McRae was hardly ready to chal-
lenge Jones after a hard campaign
on the gridiron, and he was beaten
quite handily.
Pushes Jones
At Chicago he actually led over
the first hurdle, but the flying
Jones caught him and won by a
yard in ;07.1 for, the 00-yards. In
an earlier heat the Wolverine star
had defeated Southern Califor-
nia's Don Styron with a :07.3
clocking to qualify for the finals.
Jones' winning time was only
one-tenth of a second off his own
world record.
Saturday night in ,Milwaukee
the high hurdle distance was
shortened to 50 yards,' and this
time McRae was nipped by a
stride arid a half but only after

he had pushed Jones to a world
indoor record-tying time of :05.9.
After being beaten three times
McRae might have reason to be
discouraged. But he can also take
heed from the fact that he has
already gained revenge once this
winter, in the Big Ten indoor
Last year in the same meet Mc-
Rae was beaten in the high hur-
dles by Minnesota's Dave Odegard.
This winter Odegard was unde-
feated when the two met in Cham-
paign, but that exclusive status
was quickly terminated when Mc-
Rae outsprinted him in both the
60-yd. high and low hurdles. The
Michigan star's time of :08.4 in
the highs tied the conference and
Illinois Armory record for the

However, McRae's performances
weren't the only encouraging ones
during the two-day jaunt last
weekend. The Wolverine two-mile
relay team of Charlie Aquino,
Wally Schafer, Dave Martin and
Ergas Leps won the event at Mil-
waukee with a time of 7:42.8.
Broadjumper Les Bird was third
to world record holder Ralph Bos-
ton at Chicago. Boston's winning
leap was 26'2" while Bird came
in at 23'94". Bird also had one
tremendous leap of 25'10" but he
fouled on the jump.
The Wolverine mile relay team
of Dick Cephas, Bryan Gibson,
Carter Reese, and Leps placed
third at Chicago behind Indiana
and Northwestern, who finished
one-two in the Big Ten indoor
meet also.
