Vaides' Boss Wants Rule
To Force Champ to Fight
(For Gayle Talbol)
NEW YORK OH - Jack Demp
ey'$ suggestion that an elimina
tion tournament be held to w
cover a "real" challenger for
Rocky Marciano is a worthy Idea
but Bobby Gleason thinks he has
something better to offer.
"Make the champion fight the
No. 1 challenger within six months
or take away his title," says the
fiery little manager of Cuban
heavyweight champion Nino Vai
des. "That's the way they do it
in Europe. If the European cham
pion doesn't meet No. 1, he's
tossed out on his ear by the Euro-
Dean Boxing Federation.
"Otherwise, what good is it to
rank fighters? Or have a No. 1
contender? You can't eat a rank
Bobby, of course, is not entirely
unselfish in advocating the adop
tion of the European system. Fol
lowing a decision victory over Ez
zard Charles and a four-round
knockout over Heinz Ncuhaus, the
European king, Vaides was named
the No. 1 contender by Ring mag
azine. 1
The National Boxing Assn. In its
latest rankings a few weeks back
listed no logical contenders for
Marcinno among the big boys. Ez
zard Charles, the former champ,
headed the list of "outstanding
boxers," followed by Vaides, Dan
Bucceroni and Roland LaStarza.
Dcmpsey suggested that Charles,
Vaides, Buceroni and Nardico
fight it out in an elimination tour
Gleason is willing to have Vaides
fight Charles but he wants a pay'
day" this time. He's willing to
give Ole Ez a return fight but he
wants $30,000 if Vaides wins and
$40,000 if Charles evens the score.
Actually, the whole thing is acad'
emic. The heavyweight champion
rather his manager, in this case
Al Weill calls the tune.
And of the moment, Weill
doesn't look too kindly on any
eliminations among the contend
ers. His reasoning is that his Rocky
will taKe care ol all tne eliminating
himself in due course. If the con
tenders knock each other off, then
the champion is liable to run out
of opponents. And opponents are
Haddix St7
Sit on Pacts
The St. Louis Cardinals, in the
midst of a rebuilding program,
still have two big salary prob
lemsRed Schoendienst and Har
vey Haddix to tackle before they
can go full speed ahead with their
plans for 1954.
Schoendienst, runner-up to Na
tional League batting champion
Carl Kurillo last season and Had
dix, a 20-game winner, are far
from satisfied with the contracts
they've been tendered for the up
coming campaign.
Both Schoendienst and Haddix
are reportedly asking $10,000 more
than they received in 1953. Jled Is
season and Eaddix $8,000.
The Cardinals bagged their big
gest catch of the contract signing
season Thursday Stan Musiol. The
six-time National League batting
king put his signature on a pact
calling for a reported $80,000 tops
in the senior loop.
Eddie Mathews, another of the
National League's foremost slug
gers, also signed his contract
Best guess was that Eddie's sal
ary for next season will be around

George ought to know. He was
picked as the outstanding basket
ball player of the last half century
in The Associated Press poll.
He starred in College ball at De
Paul and has been the mainstay of
the Minneapolis Lakers, National
pro champions for seven seasons,
Thursday night Mikan was on
the losing team. The East
squeezed past the West 98 - 93 in
overtime at Madison Square Gar
den. Mikan personally extended
the game the extra five minutes.
With the East leading 84-82 and
the clock showing absolutely no
time left big George shot, missed
and drew a foul giving him two
free throws.
Mikan bounced the ball half a
dozen times, then sent it swishing
through the nets twice in a row.
Bob Cousy of Boston, whose one
hander had given the East the lead
with two seconds to play, stole the
show in the extra period, scoring
10 points for a game total of 20
and controlling the ball almost
constantly with his tremendous
dribbling. The display won him
the most valuable player award.
