    Pa ret clings to life;
ref Goldstein ripped
NEW YORK UPI Gov. Nelson
A. Rockefeller was promised a de-
tailed report today on the savage
world welterweight championship
fight in which Benny (Kid) Paret
was beaten so severely he now is
beyond medical aid.
The 23-year-old Cuban under
went delicate brain surgery early
Sunday at Roosevelt Hospita
where he was taken after being
knocked senseless under a bar-
rase of blows by Emile Griffith
in the 12lh round of their grudge
fight at Madison Square Garden
Saturday night.
Paret was still unconscious and
listed in "critical" condition early
today. At least one surgeon Indi
cated Paret now is beyond the aid
of medical science.
"It's now up to the Almighty,"
Dr. Howard Dunbar, a prominent
neurosurgeon, told Paret s mana
ger, Manuel Alfaro. Dunbar said
Paret now Is In "a critical 48
hour period" following which the
ex-champion will be living on
"borrowed time.
Rockefeller requested the report
on the bout "within 24 hours'
Sunday In a telegram to the New
York State Athletic commission.
A spokesman for Gen. Melvin
Krulewitch, the commission cnair
man, said the report was being
prepared for presentation to the
governor today.
In other developments surround
ing the tragedy-fraught, nationally
televised fight:
Referee Ruby Goldstein was
being criticized In numerous quar
ters for failing to stop the fight
sooner. (Goldstein halted Uie bout
at 2:09 of the 12th after Griffith
had boxed Paret into a neutral
corner and landed upwards of 25
sledge-hammer blows to the Cu
ban's face and head.)
Wanted Paret to Retire
A skcsman for Dist. Atty.
Frank S. Hogan's office said in
the event of Paret's death. Ho
gan's staff would conduct an in
quiry and then present Its findings
to a grand jury.
Paret's wife, who watched the
fight via television from their
Miami, Kla., home, said she had

Ben Hogan. the golfing jury
ruled, will never win that coveted

Hogan is back on the tourna

signed for that one big tourna

Ihe focal point of his lairuay life.

It isn't the field, as lug and as

Bob Toski, another of Uie

"They'd only toss it back at you."
Paret s trainer, Joe De Maria
was even more bitter in his attack
on Goldstein.
"The referee was very, very
careless." De Maria said, and I
don't believe he was quick enough
in stopping it. After all, Benny
was hit with 23 straight punches
and some of them happened when
his head was outside the ring.
This, in itself, is a violation of
the rules."
Mrs. Paret, who flew to New
York Sunday with her 2-year-old
Son, Benny Jr., said she "defin
itely" thought Goldstein should
have stopped the fight sooner.
"A man can get away with er
rors in oilier departments." Toski
analyzed. "You have room with
your woods and irons for a mar

on the greens, your margin of
error is gone. Make mistakes
there and you've had it."
There arc a few who think he
stiU can do it.
"You can't question his deter

another former Open champion.
"Hp has the shots and Uie incen

said Lionel Hebcrl. "I think he'll

Prep ramblings
tfi B cage tourney appears
headed for Bend once again
By Bill Thompson
Bulletin Staff Writer
Chances appear good Uiat Bend
will host Uie 1963 B basketball
tourney a classic it successful
ly supported in 1937, 1939 and
"The recent tourney at Baker
was a fine success," Oden Hawes,
secretary of Uie Oregon School
Activities Association, told us at
Uie A-l basketball meet in Eu
gene recently.
"But I don't think they want
Uie tourney every year," he add
ed. "They're afraid Uiey might
kill off some of the interest and
enthusiasm hosting It on a year
ly basis."
Baker, said Hawes, again
brought in more gross gate re
ceipts than Uie Bend tournaments
have. But, with increased travel
ing costs, expenses were also
higher as in past years.
The Baker gate was down a
bil, and this can probably be at
tributed to a slight economic de
cline with the closing of a mill.
But Uie Baker people went all
out on a "hospitality kick" and
over-all Iho tourney was a great
Bend has also gone all out to
mako the meet a success in past
years. I have the idea that Hawes
and the OSAA would prefer to al
ternate the B meet each year be

Speaking of high school basket
ball tournaments, it would ap
pear Uiat the A-2 tourney is firm
ly established in Coos Bay.
The A-2 meet grossed $12,438
this year, as compared to $11,737
last year.
Tournament costs are about $7,-
000 each year, meaning a profit
of almost $3300.
Hawes praised the Coos Bay
Lions Club for its work in getting
facilities ready and conducting
the operation.
Eugene also made another
great success of the A-l tournev
this year Ihe best single sports
event in Oregon.
Another attendance record was
set, with total attendance surpass
ing R3.000 a gain of around 2..
two over last year's record-breaking
Next year, however. Uie meet
will he held ono week later to
avoid a conflict with final exams
at the University of Oregon.
But, in avoiding Uiis conflict,
it's bound to put a strain on base
ball and track programs.
Speaking of 16-team A-I basket
ball tournaments. Washington
state school people are discussing
a plan to chuck the present tour-
iiamcnl I exactly like Oregon s
and substituting a new plan which
would confine Seattle's participa
tion to a four-school playoff.
The abbreviated, watered-down
competition may be inaugurated
next year: or in hum at the latest.
Under the new plan, regional
meels would be held in four sec
tions of the state. wiUi finals in
Instead of a four-day meet at

"Man, it's a swinging show."
Brougham lists several reasons
for Uie radical change.
These include costs to trans
port, house and feed a couple of
hundred aUiletcs, coaches, mana
gers. (It would seem to us that
tourney receipts would pay for all
costs of the tourney.)
Brougham also notes that
schools lost a considerable
amount of revenue from Uie state
when students are not in school.
(They could, however, work it
like Oregon and hold the tourney
during spring vacation.)
One of the big reasons for the
concern over the present set-up,
writes Brougham, is Uiat educa
tors say some of Uie unchapcron-
ea student rooters stray off Uie
reservation during Uie four-day
vacation in Seattle. (The Oregon
tourney would be faced with a
similar threat should Uie A-l meet
be moved from Uie campus com
munity of Eugene to PorUand's
