Throwing a shoulder block at O'Dea's Wayne Abrose (40) is Lion end Herb Duren (52). Belier- mine's center, Tim McCormick (81), is too far from the action to help Larkin. Other Irish in on the act are tackle Rick Dodd (background) and halfback John Honda (21). The Irish went on to win, 19-6, in the Northwest Catholic Association opener. Bellarmine also suffered another loss, though temporary, with Larkin finishing the game with a broken wrist. Progress Sports Photo by Charley Heib. F anything, the pre-fight scene, via closed circuit television at the World's Fair Arena, was more in- teresting than the actual world's heavyweight title "'bout" between friend Floyd Patterson and Charles (Sonny) Liston Tuesday at Comiskey Park in Chicago ., : The big brute of a man, Liston, entered the ring first. His enormous body was warmly bundled in a white robe and his determined head in a white towel. For insurance, a trainer threw a larger white towel over " Liston's head and shoulders. From all appearances, as he stared down at the smaller Patterson; Sonny looked like a: stern Dominican, wearing the .... hood... Making his usual hit during the introductions of the : greats, near-greats and greats of the fight business was Archie Moore. The Venerable Warrior climbed through the SONNY LISTEN ropes, bedecked with cape and Stern Dominican • cane. With Listen looking like a monk, Moore on the screen could have been mistaken for a Fourth Degree Knight of Co- : lumbus searching for his lost chapeaux in a gym . . • The priest in the news befriending Listen in recent years is Father Edward P. Murphy, SJ., pastor of St. Ignatius Loyola Parish in Denver. • Said Father Murphy about Listen: "Sonny isn't a Catholic. He doesn't belong to any church. He never had a chance as a boy. But, in bis own way, be's a very religious guy." • . . Patterson "didn't have a chance as a boy either. But the convert made good. • . . Floyd's success ran out two minutes and six seconds after the first-round bell. Listen didn't give Patterson a chance as a man . • . Other priests, who helped steer Listen toward rehabili- tation from a police character are Father John J. McGinn, pastor of St. John's Parish in Yuma, and Father Alois J. Stephens, :Missouri penitentiary chaplain and pastor of St. Lawrence's Parish, Monett, Mo. Father Stephens sported during the fight an "I Like Sonny" button.. • Question of the Week is "Where were all the other clerics, supporting Patterson, who is one of the fold and a good guy?" Could be that they fled from the impending "crucifixion." . . . We're waiting for the rematch. The majority of fans have been saying that Floyd would be out of his head to enter the same ring again with the new champ. We heard a similar version after Ingemar Johanssan's "tender and lightning" leveled Patterson in their first meeting. We guess we're just loyal to good frieads even though they may have glass jaws. e Seattle U's new faces of '62 FROM ALL points of Continental U.S.A, and Puerto Rico have come the New Faces of 1962, featuring Seattle University's current Basketball Production .... Top man is Tea Cruz, Puerto Rican Olympic Games basketball star who stretches tile tape to 6-9.

S. Merchant Marine Academy at King's Point, N. Y. They inelude plebes Steve Sander, Steve Koehler and Joe English, all from Seattle Prep, and third- year Don Moore from Bellarmine. Sander was the only plebe to make the varsity football team because of his speed at halfback but suffered a dislocated elbow prior to Saturday's Temple opener. He's on the mend now but the basketball coach is already anticipating his services on the court. Brought up from the plebe squad were Koehler, a halfback and The Progress' 1961 MVP, and English, a guard. Moore has been holding down the end position. Their coach is Harry (The Horse) Wright, former Notre Dame All-American and Port- land U football mentor . . . The seamen lost to Temple, 12-3, in a game that saw only field goals scored... Chieftain Ernie Dunston, 6-7 senior, is helping Saturdays at the Seattle Knights of Columbus youth activity sessions.

O'Dea's teams since 1958 have been taking the lumps, ad- ministered by Bellarmine, with three of those games ending in a shut-out. But the tables were turned in this 1962 meeting through the inspired efforts of Gary Susak, Jim Hogan, Fred Worthing, John Honda, W a y n e Ambrose, Charles Greene, Steve Tarabochia, Dick Hill, Brian Leaky, Bill Droppleman and Company. The Lions escaped a shut- out on a short punt in the f o u r t h quarter. Bellarmine took the ball on the Irish 25 and tallied when Ralph Riden, a sophomore to watch, threw a five-yard pass to John Matz. But Bellarmine could also be proud of Joe (17 tackles) Lynn and Pat Larkin. The scoring quarter by quar- ter went this way: First -- L i o n quarterback Mel Mackay completed a 30. yard pass to Matz in the end zone. The TD w a s nullified because of illegal use of hands. Second--Susak, a halfback, ran over tackle from six yards out. The play was started on an interception by Honda on his 39. Honda ran for the extra point, Third--Tarabochia recovered a Lion fumble on the Bell 17. Six plays I a t e r Hill scored from the one. Fourth--Riden passed to Matz for the Bellarmine score. The Irish countered after Greene rook the kick-off from bis own 15 to the Lion 35. Ambrose, after two plays, went through the middle for eight yards and the final tally. O'Dea led Bellarmine in most of the statistics. The Lions made 59 to O'Dea's 44 in the passing yardage. O'Dea led, 188-132 in rushing, 21-19 in first downs, 39-36 in punting average, and, 72-40 on yards lost on penalties. The game also saw some CHAMBERLAIN THE ENIGMA: Battle of Century (2.1) . • Z 7-5 u, - ........... ' Cdi:, ! i',:!iiii!i,i,,,,i:iii!iiiiii  ............  Bob Feerick, who left i:::):;:::iiii among a 1 e a g u e of great N | scorers. He has been the point-mak- ing and rebounding champion all three years he's been in the league. The Warriors, a cellar team the year before Chamber- tin arrived, became a second place squad all three of his years. He raised their standing, but there were those Boston Celtics in front of them every year. THE PROBLEM of melding the talents of a fantastic super- star with the talents and pride of team-mates who may not be super-stars but who are still excellent athletes, has been a problem on many teams in many sports. But few sports require the absolute team-work of basket- ball. Over the years, the War- riors have always denied any friction between big Wilt and his team-mates. Says Guy Rodgers, a former All-American at Temple and now a star guard for the Warriors: "What were we before Wilt got here? Nothing. He made us a contender. How can we be mad at him." Now the specter of the Co!tics is gone, and the Warriors are in The Western Division with Baylor, West and a young, hus- tling band of Los Angeles Lakers. Are they destined to be second-place again? Bob Feerick, a personable ex-pro, who has handled col- lege kids for the last 12 years, the comparative security of a comfortable job coaching the "slow-break Bron- cos" of the University of Santa Clara to plunge himself into the maelstrom of major league pro basketball, has found himself in a spotlight of national interest as he begins coaching the San Francisco Warriors and their brilliant, but controversial star, Wilt (The Stilt)Chamberlain. When the Warriors shifted their franchise during the off- season from Philadelphia to San Francisco, Frank McGuire, their coach, declined to make the move with the squad for personal reasons, having to do with his family. Thus, the job devolved upon Feerick, a pro player of some distinction some 15 years ago, and known since as the men- tor of always-tough S a n t a Clara. The Broncos have always been noted for its deliberate offense and for leading the country in defense, mainly by not letting the opposition get the ball very often. The widely-heralded experi- ment with McGuire lasted one season, during which experts were unable to draw any con- crete conclusions as to the success of his handling of the Warrior squad. CHAMBERLAIN w o n the league's scoring title for the third year in a row with a truly startling average of 50 ':iiii!iiiiii!iiiiii;iii;!iiii!:iiiii:i!!i:i:::?i:i; i'!ii;!!i!iii[ifiiiii!i!ilili!!iii!i;!i!ii!i!ii!ii!!!!:::::::::; and the Los Angeles Lakers in association with the Century 21 Exposition. THE "BATTLE of the Cen- tury (21)" will bring a galaxy of pro basketball stars to Seat- tle including three members of the All-America pro team selected at the end of last sea- son by the National Sports- writers Association: Baylor, Chamberlain and Jerry West. The status of Chamberlain as a player has been one which has fascinated s p o r t s fans since the first season the bril- liant giant slipped on his play- ing jersey at Kansas Univer- sity, after being the object of one of the most frantic re- cruiting races in the history of college sports. Well, it was conclusively proved that basketball is still not a one-man game, no mat- ter how brilliant that man is. Kansas lost games while Wilt will be watched with consid- erable interest t h is coming season by cage buffs. How will he handle Chamberlain? What will be the results? Nobody ,can tell as of now, but it will be interesting when the Warriors clash with the points per game, but the club still finished second in t h e i r division to the Celtics. Now Feerick has inherited the job of working with Big Wilt, the greatest offensive star the game has ever known.

Johnson scored four touch- downs from runs of four, 15, 75 and 73 yards. The 75 fig- ure came on a kick-off re- turn and the 73 on a punt ran-back. He also snared an aerial for an extra point• Dave Dillon, the Braves' quarterback, scored the fifth TD on a 72-yard pass intercep- tion. Wenatchee's biggest gun was Bruce Keller who, himself, scored three TD's. Wenatchee iced the game in the final three minutes when Doug Rash scored from 19 yards out. The one-point margin was made possible by Tom Schro- ers, blocking the conver. sion kick attempt. The Braves had trailed at the end of the firs quarter, 12-6, and at halftime, 19-12 be- fore going ahead in the third quarter, 25-19.

But his efforts were not enough as the Canadians kept the pressure all afternoon for a 25-7 verdict. Hordyk scored the o n I y Ranger TD in the last quar- ter with the Ranger spark. plug smashing over from the four. The play was set up on a pass interception. Don Sny- der made it seven points for St. Martin's on a QB sneak. St. Martin's led in rushing, 276-189 but could only put to- gether 18 yards to the Irish's 75 in the air.
