The forecast for tomorrow is
not promising. Another warm,
humid day is predicted with a
possibility of late afternoon and
evening thundershowers.
Promoter Bill Rosensonh, whose
production has been plagued by
aw suits, feuds with the cham-
pion's manager and uninspired
workouts by the Swedish challen-
ger, tried his best to take the
postponement in stride.
Rain Might Help
"Who" knows?" he said. "It
miight even help. I certainly would
:ave sold very few seats today in
the rain. If tomorrow comes up
nice we might do a tremendous
business. If I had to go today I
would have been lucky to do

still were buying tickets at the
downtown office in mid-afternoon.
No refund requests had been re-
ported at that time.
In case of bad weather again
tomorrow, it is not definite whe-
ther the fight would be set back
again to Saturday or to Monday.
"Both dates are clear at Yankee
stadium," said Rosensohn. "Let's
not talk about more trouble until
we come to it."
Television Problem
A Saturday bout would mean
serious trouble for the closed cir-
cuit television people for Saturday
is a big night for regular movies
in the theatres they expect to use.
Irving Kahn, president of Tele-
PrompTer, said he would lose only
one theater (California) on Fri-
day night. That would mean the

fight would be shown in 169 loca-
tions in 135 cities. There will be
no free home television, of course,
but there will be a radio broad-
cast of the 15-round match,
scheduled for 9:30 pm.
The fight will be in conflict with
the usual Friday TV fight, origi-
nating in Madison Square Gar-
den. Tiger Jones and Victor Zala-
zar, an Argentine import, will be
appearing for free on the nation's
TV screens.
Called Press Conference
Rosensohn announced at the
morning weigh-in that the fight
definitely was on but scheduled a
1 p.m. press conference to discuss
later developments. After several
phone calls, the promoter moved
up his decision and announced the
postponement just as a heavy
shower broke over the downtown
area. The rain and the soggy con-
dition of the infield at Yankee
Stadium were given as the reasons
for the earlier announcement.
The last heavyweight title post-
ponement was Sept. 20, 1955,
when Rocky Marciano defended
against Archie Moore at Yankee
Jim Thomson, Yankee Stadium
superintendent, said the field was
"quite muddy." Under the con-
tract, Rosnsohn is obligated to

kees as he found it. If the infield
should be churned up so badly
that new turf would be needed, it
could be a $20,000 job.
Weigh-In Yesterday
The weigh-in almost got lost in
the shuffle with the weather.
Johansson, smiling confidently,
scaled 196 pounds and Patterson,
who appeared to be a little bored
by the whole thing, weighed 182.
It was Patterson's lightest weight
as champion, a quarter of a

pound less than the night he
flattened Archie Moore to win
the crown in 1956. He also
weighed 182% when he stopped
Brian London, May 1 at Indian-
apolis, his most recent fight.
Johansson had not been as light
as 196 since he won the European
title in 1956. When he knocked
out Eddit Machen in one round
last Sept. 14, he weighed 198. If
the bout is held tomorrow night,
4 there will be no second weigh-in.


Tigers Break Streak, Trounce Boston

CHICAGO (P) - John Pott, a
bridegroom of 20 days, celebrated
his best golf round yesterday -
a 7-under-par 63 that shattered
the course record and gave him
the first round lead in the $57,000
Chicago Open.
The husky former Louisiana
State links star, who has failed
to win a tourney since turning
pro in 1957, rocketed 300-yard
plus drives over the sun scorched
6,350-yard Gleneagles course in
fashioning a 34-29. It broke the
competitive course record of 64
set last year by Bill Casper and
matched earlier yesterday by de-
fending champion Ken Venturi.
The closing 29, lowest back nine
ever shot at Gleneagles, which
carries a 35-35-70 par, included
7 birdies, 1 bogey and 1 par. In
all, the 23-year old Pott, who
registers from Shreveport, La.,
had 9 one-putt greens and total
of 27 putts.
Twice he came out of traps on
the last nine to within three feet
of the pin to get birdies.

DETROIT-Little Rocky Bridges
hit the first grand slam home run
of his major league career yester-
day and paced the Detroit Tigers
to a 10-5 victory over the Boston
Red Sox.
A Ladies' Day turnout of nearly
13,000 swelled the attendance to
nearly 23,000' as the Tigers snap-
ped a four-game losing streak
with their best hitting in almost
a week. A
Al Kaline slugged his 13th home
run as relief pitcher Tom Morgan,
who saved Jim Bunning's fourth
straight triumph over Boston, hit
one in the eighth. It was Mor-
gan's second.
Dick Gernert and Marty Ke-
ough hammered roundtrippers in
the eighth and routed Bunning,
who tired in the heat.
Bunning hit a batter, walked
another and yielded two hits in
the first inning as the Red Sox
grabbed a 2-0 advantage. Kaline's
leadoff homer got one back in the
second and the Tigers broke the
game open in the third.' Bridges
capped a five-run flurry with his
grand slam blast.
Boston starter Tom Brewer,
working with two batters retired,
gave the slumping Gail Harris an.

Indians 3, Orioles 2
CLEVELAND - Tito Francona
kept Cleveland in first place yes-
terday by slamming a pair of
home runs, including an eighth
inning blast that broke a 2-2 tie;
and gave the Indians a 3-2 victory
over the Baltimore Orioles.
The Orioles, who could have
taken over first place with a
triumph, dropped into third place,
a half-game behind the Chicago
White Sox, who defeated Wash-
ington 4-1. Cleveland leads the
White Sox by one game.
Francona, whoh also had two
singles, hit his initial homer into
the right field seats and his
game-winner into the left field
stands. It was his third round-
tripper in the last two games and
only his sixth of the season.
Francona's second homer came
off Jack Fisher who relieved start-
er Hoyt Wilhelm. The knuckle-
ball ace had hurled the first six
innings in a duel with Cleveland
rookie Bobby Locke.
White Sox 4, Senators 1
CHICAGO-The Chicago White
Sox yesterday regained secnd
place in the tight American
League race, defeating the Wash-
ington Senators 4-1 on the five-
hit pitching of young Barry Lat-
It was the 23-year-old Latman 's
first victory of the season. The
victory, coupled with Baltimore's
loss to Cleveland, put the White
Sox a half-game ahead of the
Orioles an, left them one game
behind the first-place Indians.
Latman, who earned his first
start since May 9 by pitching 18
consecutive scoreless innings in
relief, held the Senators to five
hits. The only run off him came
in the fourth when Bob Allison
tripled and Roy Sievers singled.
Pirates 3, Giants 1
SAN FRANCISCO - Outfielder
Roman Mejias smashed a two-
run homer in the 12th inning
yesterday, giving the Pittsburgh
Pirates a 3-1 victory over San
Francisco as Elroy Face notched
his 12th pitching triumph.
The hit by Majias, who had
three previous homers this season
and was batting a puny .227.
came with Dick' Shoffield on first.
Victim of the 390-foot blast over
the left field fence was young
righthander Eddie Fisher. He
beat the Pirates in the opener of
the four-game series but found
rough going in relief today.

Cardinals 3, Braves 2
MILWAUKEE. (WP)-The St. Louis
Cardinals pushed across three un-
earned runs to edge Milwaukee
3-2 yesterday as the Braves' de-
fense collapsed to ruin Lew Bur-
dette's bid for his 12th victory.
The Cardinals scored two un-
earned runs in the sixth inning
after some sloppy fielding by
second baseman Felix Mantilla,
then tallied the winning marker
following an error by rightfielder
Hank Aaron.
