Genis meets

Special To The Daily
The ying and yang of the box-
ing world go at it together in a
scheduled twelve rounder in New
Britain, Conn., today. The match
should provide boxing fans every-
ere with more data to judge
the boxer-slugger controversy.
Both fighters seemed tense,
yet alert at the weight-in. Sandra
Genis was a petite 104 and Wee
Whamin' Cusamano was a ro-
tund 212, his usual drinking
Genis, the ying, will attempt
to discover whether or not crisp
jabs and light feet can determine
the course of the match. Genis
feels that the key to her success
will be her abiilty to control
the tempo, to feint and dance
yet powder when necessary.

right cross, we can be in grave

Botanical Gardens in . Tampa,
Fla., in an attempt to find the
Missing Link. In the course of
his effort, Cusamano managed
to bowl over the Elks Club of
Waskeda, Md., and three girl
scouts selling Australian charm
Cusamano was penalized fif-
teen yards and a can opener.
The girl scouts were hospitalized
and given an all-expenses paid
trip to Waskeda.
Genis views the upcoming

"Marriage is okay, but the Rat
. . . well, you've read The Idiot
haven't you . . .
Cusamano, for his part, looks
for the quick openers. Genis has
the ability for off-tackle work,
that slow steady jabs that can
break into big gains.
Cusamano has been mulling
over his game plan for eighteen
months now and feels supremely
confident. "Ain't no tender foot
gonna git me."
The affair will be a quiet, but
serene affair. Only the best, most
refined elements will be present.
"We decided to combine the
flashiness of Goodbye Columbus
with the subltety of the Feast

groundskeeper Charles Manson.
Attendance is expected to .be
in the thousands and the small
stadium in New Britain has al-
ready informed the Daily that
all standing room tickets were
gone by late Friday night.
President Nixon, avid sports
fan that he is, has cabled his
regrets to both players from
Moscow. "If only it wasn't col-
lect," moaned Genis.
Joe Frazer, reached in Omaha,
said that his fight with Muhamed
Ali would depend upon the out-
come of the matchup between
Genis and Cusamano
All of New England has been
blacked out for the match, but
the Daily has managed to get
the rights to exclusive interviews
with the participants after the
big match.

Cardinals, Wise halt rising Mets

By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS - St Louis capitalized on Tom
Seaver's first-inning wildness for three runs, two
on a single by Luis Melendez, and Joe Torre and
Ted Simmons homered off the New York ace as
the Cardinals downed the Mets 6-2 Friday night.

batters in the first and two came around to score
as the Cards beat him for the first time since

added to a 3-2 margin with Torre's fourth home
run in the fifth inning and scored its final two
runs on Ted Simmons' two-run homer in the
seventh following a double by Torre.

the first. Matty Alou's single chased Sizemore to
third and Torre drove in the first run on a force-
out. Seaver then walked Simmons and Bernie

on Beckert. Although the call was ball four,
catcher John Boccabella threw to second baseman
Ron Hunt and umpire Billy Williams called Kes-

grounded out.
