New Champ Comes From Behind To Win
Heavyweight Title Before Excited Crowd
PHILADELPHIA- (P) -Young
Rocky Marciano knocked out old
Jersey Joe Walcott with a spec-
tacular right hand shot to the jaw
in 43 seconds of the 13th round
last night to win the heavyweight
championship in a bloody brawl.
The unbeaten Brockton, Mass.,
blockbuster got off the deck from
the first knockdown of his 43-bout
career in the first round to touch
off a wild ringside scene.
MARCIANO supporters vaulted
the working press section todcrush
into the ring in a frantic demon-
stration for the first fighter ever
to win the heavyweight title with
a perfect record.
At least 150-wild-eyed Mar-
ciano fans resisted attempts of
the police to clear the ring for
several minutes after the sav-
age bout ended.
Just whenditseemed that the
title dreams of the 28-year-old kid
from the shoe mills was due to

and sturdy heart of the 38-year-
old champion, he let loose his
right hand bomb that changed
night to day.
The Rock's blockbuster right
crumpled Walcott with stunning
suddenness. Jersey Joe's eyes went
blank as he sunk slowly to the
canvas from the delayed action
effect of the punch.
IT SEEMED Walcott couldn't
miss his swarthy short-armed tar-
get with the Jarring left hook that
won the championship from Ez-
zard Charles in July of 1951.
The hook almost ended mat-
ters in the very first round of
this most exciting heavyweight
title battle since the younger
days of Louis.

THE HUGE crowd, estimated
at over 50,000, rose, expecting a
quick ending. But it sunk back
when Marciano came up swinging
only to run into another hook
that wobbled him at the bell.
Any doubt about Marciano's
ability to take it was removed
by this exhibition. OldJersey

"Where Smart Style Meets Moderate Price"
On Aerial Attack
The Michigan football squad
whipped through a brisk two hour
drill yesterday as Coach Bennie;
Oosterbaan and his aides intensi-
fied preparations for Saturday's
opener with Michigan State.
A high level of spirit and a low
level of performance featured the
practice, which was mostly con-
cerned with aerial work.
PASSERS TED Topor, Duncan
McDonald and Don ZanFagna
were on the throwing end with a
host of flankers in receiving roles.
Although there were fewer comple-
tions than the coaches would have
liked, the squad's excellent dis-
play of enthusiasm was hearten-
ing to the staff.
Perhaps the most welcome
news of the day was the return
of All-America candidate Low-
ell Perry to the lineup. A stub-
born leg injury has hampered
the Ypsilanti star since the
opening day of the drills.
The varsity showed a stout de-
fense which easily contained the
offense presented by a squad of
reserves. Big Gene Knutson of
Beliot, Wisconsin, winner of the
Meyer Morton trophy as the most
improved player of the Spring'
practice, appeared in top form at
defensive right end, Linebacker
Roger Zatkoff is still favoring a
pulled leg muscle, but is expected
to be in good condition for Satur-
day's intra-state blood-letting.

ker's roster down to 35, two over

EAST LANSING, (A)-Michigan
State's football defense is getting
a final testing this week prior to
the Michigan game.
Coaches were a little concerned
because touchdowns came too easy
in the last full-dress scrimmage.
* * *
MOVIES of the scrimmage have
been studied and the defense has
been under the microscope.
As one way of locating weak-
nesses, a skeleton defense was
sent against a complete offensive
team. One or two guards, tackles
or ends would be pulled out ev-
ery few plays and the under-
manned defense was still expect-
ed to stand its ground.
The pass defense also has been
getting a final polish.

He was in trouble in the early
innings but weathered the storm
as the Brooklyn bats boomed
and sent the Dodgers ahead in
the fifth. Duke Snider's two-
run double climaxed the Dodg-
ers game winning three-run
fifth inning rally.
The Dodgers nicked Karl Dreis,
who had beaten them, four times
this season, for a run in the first.
Rutherford protected that slen-
der margin until the third when
Gran Hamner accounted for all of
Philadelphia's runs with a grand
FIRST BASEMAN Gil Hodges
singled to ignite the Dodgers' pen-
nant clinching rally in the fifth.
Rutherford sacrificed and the
pitcher was safe on Ed Waitkus'
error at first. Pee Wee Reese sing-
led Rutherford home and Snider
followed with his $100,000 two-run
double to right.
Rutherford blanked the Phils on
three hits after Hamner's homer.
The Phils threatened in the eighth,
placing runners on first and sec-
ond with one out but Waitkus
grounded into a double play to
end the threat.
The Phils captured the anti-
climatic second game, 1-0, in 12
innings before 23,408.
PHILADELPHIA - (P) - T h e
Philadelphia Athletics tightened
their grip on fourth place in the
American League standings yes-

little Bobby Shantz for the re-

Shantz, well on his way to his
25th victory with the A's leading
3-0 in the secondhinning, was
clipped on the pitching wrist by
one of Walt Masterson's pitches.
