imedo Wants To Go Pro,
ut Only on His Terms


Forced Out of Job -Rosensohn

Alex Olmedo is ready to join the
professional tennis circuit this
fall but only on his own terms -
namely, a personal series with pro
king Panecho Gonzales.
Promoter Jack Kramer insists
he isn't buying. "No more two-
man tours," says the Los Angeles
court impresario. "That's the dark
ages. If Olmedo joins my troupe
he will play for prize money like
the others."
At the Orange Tennis Club here
where he is competing in the
Eastern Grass Courts Champion-
ships, Olmedo acknowledged yes-
terday that Kramer had ap-
proached him and that he was
Interested in playing for money.
Wants To Play Gonzales
"But I want to play Pancho,"
the U. S. Davis Cup star from
Peru said. "Amateur champion
against pro champion.'That's the
best way. It makes big money.
This other deal of Jack's, well, I
don't like."
Kramer last year installed a
new professional format-a four-
man tour with players competing
for a $1,500 purse per night. Un'-
der this plan the winner of the
feature match collected $600 and
the loser $300 with the ratio in
the preliminary $400 and $200.
The tour was a modified round
robin with the two winners of
each night's matcles clashing on
the next night. Gonzales beat out
Lew Hoad for the 1959 crown.
Won't Pay for Reputation
"The day is past that the public
will pay to see a man just because
of his reputation," Kramer said.
Duck Shoot
To Be Poor,
U.S. Reports
WASHINGTON () - The Fish
and Wildlife Service yesterday
forecast marked reductions in the
fall flights of ducks in the cen-
tral and Mississippi flyways and
moderate decreases in the Pacific
and Atlantic flyways.
The committee and officials of
the Bureau of Sports Fisheries
and Wildlife then started a series
of closed meetings to consider
proposed waterfowl regulations
for 1959-60.
Recommendations of the bu-
reau will be presented Secretary
of Interior Fred A. Seaton for his
action either late .this week or
early next week.
' The consensus as the meeting
started was that there would be
drastic curtailment, p r o b a b l y
thrPugh reductions in shooting
days, in at least the Central, Mis-
sissippi and Atlantic flyways.
The report said a drastic re-
duction is expected in the fall
flight of Canvas Back and Red-
head ducks and of Coot in all four
In summary, based on surveys
of breeding areas and wintering
populations, the report said of the
individual flyways:
Pacific flyways - a sharp re-
duction is indicated in the num-
ber of young duck produced this
year. An average fall flight is
made up of more young than
Central flyway - There will be
a marked reduction in the fall
flight of ducks. For east, a small
decrease is forecast in Snow
Geese and Whitefronts, and little
change is foreseen for White-
checked Geese.
Mississippi flyway - There will
be a marked decrease in duck. A
small decrease is expected in Blue
Geese but no change is anticipat-
ed in numbers of Canada Geese.
Atlantic flyway - There will be

at least a moderate decrease in
ducks from'the already low pop-
ulation level of last year. The
flight of Canada Geese is expect-
ed to be about the same as last
year but there has been a gradual
decrease annually for four years.
A small increase may be seen in
American Brant..

"It would be murder to throw Ol-
medo against a guy like Gonzales.
I learned a long time ago these
one-sided tours don't pay.
"I think Alex wants to be pro-
tected so he can lose only to Gon-
zales. I can't afford it, and I can't
wait. I am already making my
1960 plans without Olmedo."
Kramer told the Associated
Press from Los Angeles that he
had withdrawn his original $100,-
000 offer -to Olmedo based on the
latter's adding the U. S. National
to his Wimbledon crown.
"Alex has waited too long," the
promoter said. "I am still inter-
ested in Olmedo's potential, but
he isn't big enough or good
enough to get the kind of con-
tract he wants."
Stars Down
Pro Team
Ia Practice
RENSSELAER, Ind. (A) - The
College All Stars had their first
taste of professional football and
defeated the Chicago Bears 7-6
in an exhibition scrimmage at St.
Joseph's College yesterday.
Lee Grosscup, making a bid for
the starting quarterback job
against the Baltimore Colts in
Chicago's Soldier Field Aug. 14,
directed a ,99-yard drive which
ended with the game-winning
touchdown in the fourth quarter.
The Utah passing wizard cul-
minated the thrust with a 33-
yard aerial to Rice's Buddy Dial
for, the payoff and Michigan
State's Sammy Williams booted
the decisive point.
The 'game was played in 15-
minute quarters. There were no
kickoffs and the fair catch rule
was applied' in all punting situa-
The Bears controlled play dur-
the first quarter. They moved 56
yards in 14 plays but the drive
bogged on the All Star 25.
Punt Blocked
Early in the second quarter,
Boyd Dowler of Colorado went
back to punt for the All Stars on
his own 16. The Bears Eric Barnes
blocked it. The ball was picked up
by Bill George who ran 24 yards
fro the touchdown.'
The attempted conversion failed
when holder Ed Brown fumbled
the ball from center.
The Bears threatened again
late in the first half. They drilled
from their own 25 to the All Star
3, but the clock ran out.
Bear Pass Intercepted
Late in the third quarter, Dave
Baker of Oklahoma intercepted a
Bear pass on the All Star 1. After
one running play, Grosscup hit
Dowler with an 8-yard pass. Joe.
Morrison of Cincinnati ran for 8
before Grosscup tossed a screen
pass to Larry Hickman of Baylor
good for 35 yards as the third
quarter ended. '
Grosscup then completed three
successive passes to move the ball
to the Bear 32. A running play
lost one yard before Grosscup, ap-
parently bottled up, broke away
and fired his touchdown pass.

KID TAKES THE PLAY-Something attracts the attention of
Bob Rosburg, Jr., as his father Is presented with the cup em-
blematic of the Professional Golfers Association tournament
championship at Minneapolis, Minn., Sunday. Rosburg, entering
the final round "six strokes behind the leader, came from behind
to win the PGA title.

Quit Decision,
Jensen States
BOSTON' (A) -- Boston 'Red
Sox outfielder Jackie Jensen will
not decide his baseball future:.un-
til after the 1959 season, he told
General Manager Bucky Harris
last night.
Jensen and Harris held a. brief
closed-door meeting prior to a
Boston-Kansas City. twi-night
doubleheader at Fenway Park.
Both agreed that Jackiehad
not definitely decided on quitting
the game though he has given it
serious consideration. Jensen and
his wife, the former Zoe Ann Ol-
son, contacted in their Lake Ta-
hoe,' Nev., home admit he has
talked of quitting during pre-
vious seasons.
'Jackie told me he would give
me a definite answer after the
season is over," Harris said.
"I don't see how I possibly can
give Mr. Harris an answer before
the season is over," Jensen said
between turns in the batting cage.
"I can'ttell anybody because I
don't know myself. I'm thinking
about it and when I've made my
decision I'll let him know."
Harris called the conference
because he said he wanted to
know as soon as possible what
Jensen actually intended to do..
The Sox right fielder, who
played for New York and Wash-
ington before coming to Boston,
was the American League's most
valuable player last year. 'Only
once since he joined the Red Sox
has he failed to bat in at least
100 runs per season.
Jensen owns two restaurants in
Oakland, Calif., and some prop-
erty in Lake Tahoe.
Chicago Completes
New Hockey Rink
CHICAGO M-P-A new $175,000
hockey rink has been completed
in Chicago Stadium, home of the
Black Hawks.
Ten miles of 1 /-inch pipe were
laid under five inches of concrete
to form the freezing unit.
The rink was the major item in
a $300,000 refurbishing bill for the
entire stadium.
"The new rink will give the
players a much better surface to
skate on," said the Black Hawks-
director of publicity, Johnny Gott-
Selig. "The old complaint of visit-
ing teams about 'slow ice' should
now be gone."

NEW YORK (y)-More fuel was
added to the already blazing fire

terson-Ingemar Johansson heavy-
weight title fight yesterday as Bill

signed away control of Rosensohn
Enterprises, Inc., so that the first
fight could be held.

Twvo Ready
For 'Fight
In Chicago
CHICAGO () - Two of the
biggest heavyweights in the busi-
ness, Sonny Liston of Philadel-
phia and Cuban Nino Valdes, will
try to bomb each other into sub-
mission tonight.
Liston, ranked the No. 3 con-
tender by both the National Box-
ing Assn. and Ring Magazine, is a
solid favorite to extend his win-
ning streak through 18 bouts in
the televised 10 rounder at Chi-
cago Stadium.
It will be scored under the five-
point system.
Valdes, who like Liston, is in
the 212-220 pound category,
peaked his 19 years of pro cam-
pagining by once being rated a
No. 1 contender. But of late he
has slipped out of the rankings.
Last April he scored an eight-
round knockout overDanhHodge
in Witchita, but a month later
lost a.decision to Alonzo Johnson
in Madison Square Garden.
The 34-year-old Cuban, who
first made his mark nationally by
upsetting Ezzard Charles in 1953,
has knocked out35 Hfoes in win-
ning- 48 of 67 starts. He has been
kayoed four times.
Valdes' best weapon is his left
hook and he carries KO power in
it. The 27-year-old Liston is prone
to be vulnerable to a left hook,
esepecially to the body, but he
never has been knocked out.
In his last fight, April 15, Lis-
ton flattened Cleveland Williams
in three rounds at Miami Beach.
Williams tried to bomb him out
early, but Liston went into a
gloved defense much like that
employed by Archie Moore and
waited for his shot. Last February
he took care of Mike DeJohn in
six rounds.,
Liston, who has kayoed 15 op-
ponents, has lost only once in 25
bouts. That was an eight round
split decision to Marty Marshall
on Sept. 7, 1954, in Detroit. Later
he' knocked out Marshall in six
and then defeated him again in

in the issue of Sports Illustrated
due today in which he indicated
Patterson's manager, Cus D'Ama-
to, would have called off the first.
fight had his terms not been met.
Rosensohn's article was the
second bombshell dropped amid
the strife-ridden Rosensohn En-
terprises in 24 hours. Monday Ro-
sensohn resigned as president and
said he was attempting to sell his
one-third interest for $75,000.
Black Mentioned
His Sports Illustrated article
brings in the vague figure of one
Charley Black, as well as detailing
his version of his dealings with
D'Amato, Vincent J. Velella and
Irving Kahn.
Velella, an attorney who holds
two-thirds of the organization's
stock, named Kahn as a director
last Friday over Rosensohn's-
strenuous objection. Kahn is pres-
ident of Teleprompter, Inc., which
had the TV, radio and movie rights
to the first fight, and has them
for the rematch.
Rosensohn writes that Black,
whom he described as close to
D'Amato, was promised participa-
tion in the profits of the first fight
at D'Amato's insistence, and be-

cause he, Rosensohn, desired to
curry favor with the manager.
"D'Amato had pointed out that
his previous promoter, Emil Lence,
had always taken care of Charley,"
Rosensohn writes, "and D'Amato
said Charley would have to partici-
pate in the profits of all Patterson
fights.... Black was supposed to
receive 50 per cent of the profits
from the (Roy) Harris fight pro-
motion." (Patterson knocked out
Harris in Los Angeles, Aug. 18,
Velella was brought into the pic-
ture by 'Black, Rosensohn says.
Velella offered unlimited backing
for the promotions but he wanted
to be equal partners with his
friend Charley and Rosensohn.
Black had been given a one-third
profit sharing interest.
When Rosensohn accepted an
offer of financial backing from the
William Zeckendorfs in return for
half of the profits of the promo-
tion,. D'Amato was furious, Rosen-
sohn relates.
D'Amato turned over the promo-
tion of the Patterson-Brian Lon-
don fight to another promoter,
Cecil Rhodes, although Rosensohn
was called in at the last minute.

The episode undermined Zecken-
dorf's confidence and his interest
died completely when an unfavor-
able radio-TV deal was made, Ro-
sensohn said.
Owned Part of Group
The magazine theorized that
since Black seems to have owned
a third of Rosensohn Enterprises
before Velella assumed a full two-
thirds and thus absolute control,
Velella could not have done so
without Black's acquiescence --
and therefore D'Amato's.
The second fight has been tenta-
tively scheduled for Sept. 22, wifh
the site not yet announced. Jo-
hansson knocked out Patterson in
the third round of the first en-
counter here last June.
In Sweden Johansson's advisor,
Edwin Ahlquist, said "We very
much regret the resignation of Bill
Rosensohn and we are going to
demand a full investigation into
the whole business before any deci-
sion on the return match is
A spokesman for the New York
State Athletic Commission said
yesterday he had not seen Rosen-
sohn's article and consequently
could not comment on it.
