INCREDIBLE CREATURES, I was mopping up th
last suds of 1956 In Rolando's Hideaway the other day,
and wondering whether the 1957 brew would by any
better or any worse, what with the International Geo
pical Year, and no Olympic training necessary till
You'Jl see that the mfnd was roaming with a degree
of diligence hardly known since it became necessary to
realize that the clock in Union Station, Washington,
pays no heed to daylight saving time.
Come to think of it, nor does Red's Cantuta Cab.
You'll recall that daylight saving is clock-shuffling
sort of shell game whereby in the long summer twilights
north and south of the tropics, people can play tennis
practically till the pubs close.
Red's Cantuta Cab challenges this whole concept
Take a ride in it at the time when it is normally dusk,
and darkness falls promtly.
For that matter, take a ride in it at high noon.
Darkness again falls promptly. Likewise soot.

get the smuffler fixed, so that the exhaust fumes do not

He figures that with a mystic brew of .Scotch tape
and well-used chewing gun, he can regulate the affair
so that asphyxiation does not occur for at least half a
That is an examplary New Year resolution of Red's.
Which brings me to note that, because of the stereotyp stereotyped
ed stereotyped nature of communications channels down this way,
we know less than we should of the New Year resolu resolutions
tions resolutions which may impinged on us significantly in this
year ahead. v
First, I think some good resolution should be made
about the number of said year.
For most folks around these parts it is scheduled to
be commonly known- as 1957. But members of the Jew Jewish
ish Jewish faith have it tagged with some rather higher figure,
and Mohammedans with a number rather less. To add
to this confusion, there are people still sending me bills
dated 1952 and earlier.
I suggest clarification. Better by far that instead of
so much uncertainty, all hands agree that each year
bear the number of the first prize in the lottery drawn
on the first Sunday of that year.
..Apart from its simplicity, this practice would do
much to wipe the smug expression of the face of history
teachers. Taking the last three draws, for instance, the
year 3954 could come right after 0738 and right before
5402. Neither would it be anything out of the way for
one year to be numbered a couple of thousand less than
the year before.
Just to quell any unease among the representatives
of the various faiths which appear to have a strangle stranglehold
hold stranglehold on the present system of numbering (Come to think
of it, I wouldn't be surprised the Bhuddists were running
their own timetable too) the drawing could be under

You might hear some whispers of opposition to this

only from an insidious alliance of history teachers and
the influential calendar lobby, which has much capital
tied up in the proposition that come Tuesday we all
That then is my New Year resolution that th
year should not necessarily be 1957.
Having thus qualified as an expert on New Year re resolutions,
solutions, resolutions, I shall proceed to disclose some which have
reached me through channels so fantastic you would not
believe jne if I revealed them.

Panama Club course on Jan. 10.

steps up to tne tee. ceorge will al

which will take place on Jan.
Bayer is a member of the Pro Ad
visory and Technical Staff of the
MacGregor Golf Company and has
attracted tremendous atten t io n
through-out the United States.
It is said that someone may
someday shoot a golf ball farther
than George Bayer hit 'em, but
chances are that no one will ever
propel one for greater distance
consistently. A mighty statement,
but George is a Mighty Man, and
is generally regarded as the long longest
est longest hitter in the game.
There it a fascination about a
sports figure who can hit a ball
farther than his contemporaries contemporaries-thus
thus contemporaries-thus it is with Bayer, the Babe
Ruth of professional golf. Bayer
is a natural gallery favorite- hit
300 yard drives and peerless put putting

When Bayer really arrives, look
Major league baseball probably
missed a great pitching personali
ty when Bayer decided instead to
concentrate on a college education
football and golf. During high
school and afterwarc as a semi
pro, uayer pneneo lr.ore man a
dozen one or two hit games and
at that time baseball was his fa
vorite sport although he was one
of those "Natural! Athletes" who
was a standout in every sport he
played. George played four years
of varsity football at the Universi University
ty University of Washington where he was a
rugged ta'-kle in the Pacif it Coast
Conference. He was good enough
to be drafted by the Washington
Redskins in the National Football
Bayer, one of five children (all
boys), grew to love golf as a cad
dy at the Kitsap Golf and Country
club in Bremerton, Washington,
his home town. He played h i s
first round at age seven and was
a caddy in Bremerton for nine
seasons where he absorbed the
fundamentals of the game. In
h)gh school, he was a four sport
star gou, ftaieoau, footoau am
DafKetnau ana later played
pro basketball as well as basfeb
While he doesn't regret this vari
ed athletic career, Bayer says now
that if he had it to do over again
he would forget all other sports
and concentrate on golf. "A golf
ball can't hit back" says George.
It was Walter Keller, a golf pro professional

George he ought to turn profes

Robinson Believes He Can
Knock Out Age, Too, And
How Will Fullmer Last?
By JIMMY BRESLIN
GREENWOOD LAKE, N. Y.
(NEA) Ray Robinson looks at
it the other way.
While everybody is busy pointing
out that at 36 he can't possibly go
more than eight or nine rounds a-
gainst Gene Fullmer at Madison
?uare Garden, Jan. 3. Ultt ugar
ay asks about something else.
'Do you have a- guarantee mm-
Bobo Olson has been made manager of a Vancouver night club.
This is heartening. It indicates, the defunct middleweight champion
has recovered from the strange sleeping sickness that plagued him
tht past year" or so.
Obviously a -light club manager can't retire early and help
the house. He must .stick around until the last emotional lush has
paid bis weepy respects to Mother Machrec. Olson, a dawn greeter,
by habit, will do all right if nothing occurs to agitate his aflergy.
It was only when the Hawaiian born San Franciscan climbed
into, a priz ring that he couldn't keep his eyes open. For not long,
anyway. This was something that had struck suddenly. In less than
three rounds against Archie Moore it was hard to distinguish Ol Olson's
son's Olson's shores from the tug boats toots in the Harlem river, and a a-gaijist,
gaijist, a-gaijist, Sugar Ray Robinson, a few morths later, he went beddy beddy-by
by beddy-by even faster.
i t has long been maintained in better delirium tremens circles
that nothing can be more therapeutically comforting to the victim
than a spot of hair off the dog that bit him. Either the theory doesn't
apply to prize fighting, or else the restorative in this instance was
inexpertly administered. A rematch with Robinson had the same
denouement. More Olson snores.
Statisticians claim more people have watched Olson sleep than
any other man in the history of civilization, and thanks to televi
sion, this is prooably true. Virtually overnight the 27-year-old
champion, whose skills if not exciting, were uncommonly effective,
became a modern, small size edition of Britain's Joe Beckett. One
punch to the potato and he was off for sleepy hollow.
A BELT TO THE HEAD
There had been no prior hint of structural weakness in the Ol Olson
son Olson mandible. Inadequately armed, both as to experience and e e-quipment,
quipment, e-quipment, and making his first feature fight In America, he had
been stopped earlier by Robinson. This was to remain bis first and
only knockout defeat until the tranquilizers began to come on bunch
es five years later. What is the explanation?
Jim Norris, who was always high on the fur bearing, body dig dig-ling
ling dig-ling baidy, believes Moore ruined him ... "The punch certainly
couldn't have done him any good," said the IBC chief. "It must
have been as hard a punch to the head as Moore ever threw."
It might very well have been, at that, for old Archie had tc win
this one. and win it big, if he was ever to get a shot at Marciano
and the heavyweight championship. He made sure he didn't miss.
Actually, It was no contest.
. Olson and his manager were maneuvered into the match by I
we adroit and ingenious Jack Kearns, who had become fractional
proprietor of Moore following the latter's victory over Joey Maxim
... for whom Kearns pulled the strings.
KEARNS LAID A TRAP
As light heavyweight champion Moore was small change at
the box office, so if Kearns was to get any important money out of
his. holdings, a Moore-Marciano match was imperative. By luck or
un ... yott name a ... nis ambition was greatly abetted by a
ps of remarkable coincidences.
This was the sequence in early '55. On April 13. Olson, a flatr-
rantly light hitter, had the heavier Maxim on the floor and beat
him handily. On May 12, Moore, apparently having serious trouble
Redding weight, was sluggish and unimpressive in winning over
Nino Valdes. On May 16, Marciano stopped the spectacular inept
Don Cockell in what was his worst fight as champion.
Now Olson and his manager couldn't wait to battle Moore at
175 pounds. (How could he possibly make the weight and be strong?)
Besides, Olson was growing bigger and stronger, (Look how he belt belted
ed belted Maxim around).
It all added up. There was no doubt in the manager's mind that
Olson would take Moore's light heavyweight championship. They'd
beat Moore, then fight Marciano. On second thought, they'd make
Marciano wait another year and fight Cockell instead. Two big
purses instead of one.
The next time we catch up with Doc Kearns we'll get him to de define
fine define the affinity between a pipe dream and a recurrent case of
sleeping sickness. Having created the cause, and prospered by the
effect, he ought to know.

In a thermonuclear (hydrogen)
reaction 2 light nuclei fuse into a
heavier one when a temperature
of about one million degrees is
produced. The more conventional
atomic reaction occurs when nuc nuclei
lei nuclei are bombarded with other nu nuclear
clear nuclear particles as in a cyclotron.
In the new discovery nuclei are
pulled together in such a way that
a proton and a nucleus of heavy
hydrogen, a deuteron, combine to
form helim-three, releasing, 5.4
million volts energy. The joining
occurs in a "mesic molecule."
As the scientists and Atomic
Energy Commission! explained it:
In a normal molecule the nuc

Ike May Ask Congressional Approval

the new Congress for standby au

would be used in the troubled area
only as a last resort and probably
only then as part of a concerted

But they said such a congres

fill the power vacuum created by
shrinking British influence in the
area. It also would post a "hands

Mr. Eisenhower and Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles are
expected to explore the question
during their New Year's day
meeting with Republican and
Democratic congressional leaders
at the White House.
The reaction of the lawmaker
probably will detern.ine whether
the chief executive actually lays
a formal request before the new

which convenes next Thursday.
Murray Snyder, acting White
House Press Secretary, said he
had no comment' on the reports.

House Republican Leader Jos

not know' how Congress would re
act. He said It would depend on
conditions at the time and the
time and the President's reasons

Martin emphasized he had no in information
formation information on such a request.
Sen. John J. Sparkman (D-Ala)
a member of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, said he
"would have to be shown the
need" before he would vote for
such a proposal.
Idas Nat New
The idea of seeking such author

considered calling a special ses

when Israel, Britain and France
first invaded Egypt. But it was
decided to work through tne una

The picture has changed eoTid
