HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE BOUT:

outs, took charge in the first'
round withhis left jab. It was{
just like the training camp at
Grossinger, N. Y. all over again.
All left, no right.
Suddenly late in the first he
flashed one right that landed on
top of the champ's head. This was
the type of punch that claimed
highly rated Eddie Machen as a
first round knockout victim last
September and won Ingemar the
title shot.
In the second ,round, Patter-
son was beginning to come on,
slamming to the body but with-
-out too much effectiveness. Inge-
mar's stinging jab still was keep-
ing him off but the Swede's right
still was missing fire.
Johansson Lands
Patterson came out for the
third, sticking with 'his left and
looking over the top of the left
as though sighting a gun. Boom
came the "thunder and lightning"
right that the Swedes have been
talking about and down went Pat-
Sterson on his back.
Then Patterson took his eerie
walk into never-never land with
his hands dangling at his side.
Johanson, sensing the big chance
his fists already had given him,
came dashing to the attack with
another right.
After each of the first two
knockdowns it looked as though
the champ was not going to get
up. But he kept on coming back
gamely, only to run into more of
this right, hand punch that no
longer is a mystery.

A hard left and right sent the
champ groveling into the resin
dust until Goldstein counted six.
Another right sent him down on
his back near the ropes. He pulled
himself up to one knee, pawing
weakly at the ropes to help him-
self get up at six.
Blood was streaming from Pat-
terson's mouth and nose as he
went sprawling from another
right. This time it took seven
seconds before he pulled himself
together. A left-right combination
made even the thickest skinned
fans wonder how much longer
they could let it go. Patterson took
nine this time and got up once
more.
The right hand did it once
more. Goldstein declared the
armistice.
Johansson Jubilant
The end of the bout touched off
an explosive scene in- the ring.
Ingemar's trainers, American and
Swedish, grabbed him in waltz
step. Edwin Ahlquist, the Swedish
promoter who is Ingemar's "ad-
viser," joined in the celebration
along with Dr. Gosta Karlsson,
his personal physician from Swe-
den, and all the Swedes who
could break through the heavy
cordon of police.
For several frantic minutes,
hundreds teetered on the edge of
the ring apron, rebuffed by police,
in a scene that recalled the tur-
moil in Philadelphia when Brock-
ton, Mass. fans burst into the ring
to cheer Rocky Marciano's knock-
out of Jersey Joe Walcott.
Johansson, who trained "fam-
ily style" with his mother, father,

sister, two brothers, and fiancee
in attendance, was the fifth man
born outside America to win the
heavy crown. The others were Bob
Fitzsimmons, Tommy Burns, Max
Schmeling and Primo Carnera.
Only three other men ever won
the big prize of boxing without
ever losing a fight. They were
John L. Sullivan, Jim Jeffries and
Rocky Marciano. Jeffries, how-
ever, had been held to two draws.
Johansson, a strapping 196-
pounder, towered over the 182-

pound Patterson. It looked like a
man against a boy although the
difference was only 14 pounds. At
least, the difference was only 14
pounds Wednesday when they
weighed in before the postpone-
ment because of threatening
weather.
Rain fell for two and one-halfj
hours last night, delaying the
start of the program for an hour,
and almost forcing promoter Bill
Rosensohn to postpone the show
until tonight or Monday.

Surprised Floyd Got Up,
Johansson Tells Writers

NEW YORK (P) - "I was sur-
prised when he got up - usually
when I hit a man like that he
stays down."
Ingemar Johansson of Sweden,
the new Heavyweight Champion
of the World, brandished his ex-
plosive right fist proudly in the
swelter and confusion of the Yan-
kee Stadium's catacombs and told
how he beat champion Floyd Pat-
terson into submission in 2:03 of
the third round last night.
"It was a straight right - and
flush on the chin," the dimpled,
smiling Viking added.
"It was my best shot, and I
thought the fight was over there.
But I had to hit him again and
again."
Johansson threw his vaunted
fist high in the air in a gesture of

victory and then planted a wet
kiss on the gnarled fingers.
"You see I fool you," he told
gathreed newsmen in his dressing
room. "You thought my right
hand was just a fantasy. I show
you - and I also show Patterson."
Rocky Marciano, former king of
the heavyweights now plump and
jowly from too much rich Italian
cooking, was one of the first to
reach Johansson's- side and shake
his hands.
"It was fantastic," said the re-
tired undefeated heavyweight
champion.,"I never saw anything
like it - never in my life. It was
so quick and so deadly."
Outside in the dank corridor,
clustered close around the police-
protected door, were members of
Johansson's family.
Papa, Jens Johansson, a Gote-
borg stonecutter was pale and
shaking but showing complete de-
light. Sister Eva was crying her
eyes out.
Mama Ebba Johansson was un-
emotional. She chewed gum gin-
gerly and stared oddly at the
closed door behind which her son
was being examined by doctors
and interviewed.
Floyd Patterson leaned sadly
a g a i n s t the wall of Mickey
Mantle's dressing room and said.
"I couldn't see the punch com-
ing.
"The first one hit flush on the
forehead.
"When I got up the first time
I didn't know where I was.
"I didn't feel the second punch
but after that I think I started to
come out of it.
"But I couldn't criticize the ref-
eree for stopping the fight."
Patterson whispered all this to
his manager, Cus D'Amato, who
in turn shouted it to the perspir-
ing, milling crowd of newspaper-
men that had been kept out of
the dressing room for a full 40
minutes after the end of the fight.

CHAMPION AND FORMER CHAMPION-This was the scene
at the weigh-in for the Patterson-Johansson fight which was
fought last night. Johansson's third round TKO was a surprise
to the oddsmakers who had picked Patterson 5-1.
BATTLE IT OUT:
Crawford, Lucetti Lead
In NCAA Golf Finals

WIMBLEDON, England () -
Perpetually youthful Gardnar
Mulloy yesterday defeated Earl
(Butch) Buchholz, a powerful
teenager young enough to be his
son, in the third round of the
Wimbledon Tennis Champion-'
ships.
The 45-year-old Mulloy took
this center court struggle in
straight sets 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, by
Ban Koreans,
Russians Say
MOSCOW -) - K. Andrianov,
president of the Russian Olympic
Committee, declared today that
South Koreans must be banned
from the 1960 Rome Olympics if
they refuse to compete in a uni-
fled Korean team.
South Korea competed at the
Melbourne Games as a separate
team and is going ahead with
plans for the Rome Olympics.
Andrianov, writing in the News-
paper of Soviet Sports, also urged
that "international sports associ-
ations purge the Chaing Kai-
Shekists from their ranks." This
was in reference to the recent
action of the International Olym-
pic Committee in 'withdrawing
recognition of Nationalist China
because it claimed jurisdiction
over the Chinese Mainland.
As matters now stand, both
Nationalist China and the Red
Chinese are outside the Olympic
movement, the Communists be-
cause their claim to jurisdiction
over sports on Formosa was re-
jected.
In the first installment of a
plc Problems," Andianov said "it
series of articles entitled "Olym-
is obvious that if South Korean
sportsmen oppose an agreement
on the creation of a unified Olym-
pic team (for all Korea), the
International Olympic Committee
at its next session in February
of 1960 must take a decision to
ban South Korea sportsmen from
the Rope Olympics."

working the corners and the side-
lines and chopping soft shots that
hardly bounced at all.
The victory sent Mulloy into the
round of 16 in men's singles--a
bracket attained by seeded players
Alex Olmedo, Neale Fraser, Barry
MacKay and Roy Emerson and by
fourth-seeded Bobby Wilson and
seventh-seeded Luis Ayala yester-
day.
Never Found Balance
Buchholz, an 18-year-old high
school boy from St. Louis and
one of America's brightest tennis
prospects, never found his bal-
ance.
In every set the pattern was the
same. It was set by the crafty
Miami veteran who first hit the
U.S. ranking list in 1939-the year
before Buchholz was born. First
Mulloy worked for an early serv-
ice break. Then the trim grey
haired man clug to his advantage
like ivy on a wall.
"I deliberately soft-balled the
kid," Mulloy said afterward. "I
wanted to dra whim up to the
net and force him into errors.
Toward the end I was getting
tired and so was the kid. He was
making me run too much with his
shots from the baseline.
"When you have been around
as, long as I have, you are glad
to win one like this."
Frost Beaten
One American besides Buch-
holz was eliminated from the
men's singles yesterday. Jack
Frost of Monterey, Calif., dropped
a straight-set decision to 22-
year-old Joergen Ulrich of Den-
mark 9-7, 7-5, 6-1.
In Women's singles the United
States has four survivors among
the last 16. Two Americans won
yesterday, two lost and one had
to default. The winners were
third-seeded Mrs. Beverly Baker
Fleitz of Long Beach, Calif., and
Janet Hopps of Seattle. Darlene
Hard of Montebello, Calif., seeded
fourth, and Sally Moore of Ba-
kersfield, Calif., last years Wim--
bledon Junior Champion, ad-

EUGENE, Ore. ()-- Houston's
Dick Crawford and San Jose
State's Jack Luceti moved into
today's NCAA golf finals with
semi-final victories today.
Crawford, No. 4 man on four-
time-team-champion Houston
University, whipped Yale's Ted
Weiss 8 and 7. Luceti edged
Georgia's Bob Moser 2 and 1.
Crawford, a sophomore, meets
Luceti in the 36-hole finals of
this 62nd annual tournament at
the Eugene Country Club.
Luceti overcame a two-hole
deficit to win on the 17th hole.!
Moser went 2 up on the 23rd and
24th holes but Luceti won the
25th when his iron shot dropped
18 inches from the cup, and he
went even on the 27th when
Moser missed a 4-footer.
Luceti went 1 up on the 29th
with a birdie, and he won the
match on the 35th when he put-
ted within five feet of the pin'
on a 50-footer, and then dropped
the winning putt.
Crawford held a 3 up edge
after the first 18 holes, and closed
out the match on the 29th hole
when Weiss struck a tree and had
to settle for a bogey.
Crawford went 4 up on the 19th,
when Weiss missed a 10-footer,
and 5 up with a 2-footer on the
20th hole.

Weiss trimmed the lead to four,
holes on the 21st, when Crawford
missed a 5-footer, but the Hous-
ton sophomore won the 23rd.
Crawford extended his lead to
six strokes on the 27th when
Weiss double-bogeyed a par 5.
hole, and he won the 28th when
Weiss hit his chip shot 15 yards
beyond the pin.
Moser never led in the morning
round, but Luceti was unable to
take more than a 1 up lead and
he frequently lost that.
Crawford won the first two
holes against Weiss, the first when
Weiss hit into a sand trap and the
second when Weiss' tee shot went
into the trees.
Weiss pulled even on the 6th
and went one down again when
he chipped 20 feet past the pin
on the 7th hole and was 2 down
on missing a 6-foot putt on the
9th.

DETROIT -- The Baltimoret
Orioles rode to a 12-7 triumphr
over the Detroit Tigers last night,
Bob Nieman driving home five{
runs, and the Tigers kicking in
seven unearned tallies. It was the
first -game of a twi-night double-
header witnessed by more than
50,000 spectators in BriggsSta-a
dium.
The Tigers were guilty of four
errors, one of them a disastrousr
miscue by starting pitching Raya
Narleskibthat opened the gates for
eight Baltimore runs in the fiftht
inning.
Nieman, a former Tiger, hit his
eighth homer, a double and two
singles and reached base the oth-i
er trip on the first of two errorsc

man doubled in the Orioles' big
inning, in which 13 men went toe

bat against Narleski and his er-
ratic successor, Pete Burnside.
Six of the runs were unearned
because Narleski failed to field
Gene Woodling's high bounder to
the mound.
The Tigers, dropping their sev-
enth decision in their last 10
games, excited the huge gathering
with a ninth inning flurry that
produce d five runs. Johnny
Groth's pinch triple scored two
runs, Harvey Kuenn tripled home
another, and Charlie Maxwell's
15th home run pulled in the final
two.
Senators 8, Athletics 4
KANSAS CITY - The Wash-
ington Senators blasted their way
out of last place with four home
runs, three of them in theeighth
inning last night as they smoth-
ered the Kansas City Athletics 8-4.
The defeat droppe dthe A's into
the cellar, a half-game behind the
Senators.' Washington got strong
pitching for eight innings from
Camilio Pascual who inscribed his
sixth victory of the year against
seven defeats. Pascual had a 6-
hitter until the ninth when he was
removed after the A's had scored
one run on three hits.
Harmon Killebrew hit his 25th
home run in the eighth over the
centerfield fence into the Kansas
City bullpen. This duplicated a
wallop by Faye Throneberry in
the seventh.
Bob Allison also hit his 20th cir-
cuit shot in the eighth along with
Jim Lemon's 18th. Lemon's homer
came with the walking Roy Siev-
ers on first. The other two were
solo smashes.
Reds 7, Cardinals 6
CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati
Reds scroed four runs in the
