Rocky Graziano, once the kayo
king of the middleweights, today
shrugged off a rusty perform
ance against George (Sonny)
Home and growled,
"You can't knock 'em all out.
Some nights you can't knock any.
Rocky meant his disgust, too.
He won his third straight 10
round decision over Horne last
night at the Cleveland News' 24th
annual Christmas fund show. But
he got socked pretty hard In the
last five rounds.
Graziano's trainer, Whltey Blra
stein, wasn't so pessimistic.
"You did all right, considering
It was only your second fight in
Just about a year," consoled Blnv
stein. "You needed that one un
der your belt"
Rocky's last fight was a kayo
over another hot title contender,
Charley Fusari, In ihe 10th
In the third round, Home's
face took on a silly expression
when Graziano slammed his Jaw
with a hard right. He started
sinking. Again In the fifth, the
same thing happened.
But In both cases the bell
clanged In time.

BALTIMORE, UP) Bill
Veeck, dynamic ex-president of
the Cleveland club is gone but
the Indians are still stealing the
show from the rest of the major
league clubs. :
While the others were feinting
and fencing but apparently ac
complishing nothing in their ef
forts to swing the first big trade
at the minor league convention,
the Indiana came up with one
of the finest pitching prizes in
the minors. .....
He Is Hal Saltzman, 24-year-old
righthander who won 23 and
lost 13 for the Portland club of
the Pacific Coast league. General
Manager Hank Greenberg of the
Indians, who announced the pur
chase Tuesday night, said Saltz
man cost Cleveland five players
besides an undisclosed amount of
cash. He estimated the deal re
presented a $100,000 purchase.
Saltzman, a University of Ore
gon product who had only a year
and a half of professional base
ball experience before Joining
the Beavers last year, Is general
ly regarded as the top pitching
prospect on the coast. He pitched
22 complete games last year and
fanned 120 In 276 innings.
To get the youngster, the In
dians had to top the offers of
three rival big league clubs.
Gneenberg said both New York
clubs and the Chicago White Sox
were after him. In addition to
about $30,000 In cash, the Indians
gave up outfielders Hal Peck and

liminary after Davidson lost on
a disqualification to ' George
Strickland in one of the bloodiest
bouts of the season.
Atlas, who defeated Dusette
here two weeks ago when the
Frenchman was unable to return
for the third and deciding fall,
demanded a fat guarantee to meet
Dusette again. '1 proved my abil
iv to defeat the Frenchie In a
feat of strength and what more
does he want," the muscular and
conceited matman said.
Actually, Dusette won the first
fall with a full-nelson and had
the same fall clamped on when
Atlas ran both men into- and
through the ropes. Both tumbled
into the ringside, but Atlas was
on top and Dusette crashed on
his head and shoulders. Dusette
was barely able to regain the
mat after a 19-second count and
was an easy victim with a full
nelson. Dusette says that he is certain
he can defeat Atlas "in a feat of
strength or in any other style of
wresllng and, I'll prove It," the
Frenchman said. Both men boast
amazing strength in their should
er and arms and for that reason
both specialize on full-nelsons.
Dusette, however, also employs a
headlock and in re-cent weeks has
developed and perfected an un
usual leg hold which he might use
against Atlas this week.
The match was a thriller here
two weeks ago and Douglas
county followers are expected to
pack the arena to near capacity.
For that reason fans are urged
to make early ringside reserva
tions at Powell's.
