Split Decision
Against Pep
Brings Howls
Calif., Mar. 31 UP).—' Two judges
gave Gil Cadilli a split decision
over Willie Pep last night, but
the referee, writers and uncount
ed TV watchers figured the aging
former world featherweight
Champion was the winner.
Young Cadilli, 22, of San Jose.
Calif., started Pep’s right eye
bleeding in the fourth round of
their 10-round fight before 3,000
airmen and a national television
Before the bleeding eye slowed
him, Pep, 32. had been building
, a good point margin over Cadilli,
' a mate of Middleweight Cham
pion Bobo Olson in Manager Sid
Flaherty’s stable.
Many airmen booed the ver
dict. but there were some cheers
In San Francisco, indignant
TV fans grabbed their telephones
Sports desks of both the Exam
iner and Chronicle reported a
flood of protesting calls.
“As Bad as Wrestling”
One fan said the decision was
so bad “even my children com
plained.” Another said, “Boxing
is getting as bad as wrestling.”
Judges Eddie James and Tom
my Bosnick each gave Cadilli a
56-54 point margin. Referee
Jack Downey called it 58-52 for
Before the fight. Bill Gore,
Pep’s trainer, had protested the
selection of Bosnick as a judge.
Gore told the California State
Athletic Commission ttAt Bos
nick would not be a proper offi
cial because he once fought as a
heavyweight for Flaherty.
• Gore said Willie Ritchie, chief
inspector for the commission told
him: "Don’t worry. Bill. These
guys have to be on their toes.
It’s on TV.”
Survives Knockout Threat
The fourth was a big one for
Cadilli. He opened Pep’s eye cut j
with a hard right late in the
round. Cadilli pressed for a
knockout. |Pep staggered against
the ropes but survived the round.!
A doctor checked Pep’s cut be- |
tween rounds. In the fifth Cadil
h reopened the cut, which bled 1
heavily again.
Pep kept out of Cadilli’s reach
until an all-out effort for a final
round knockout. Judge Bosnick
and Referee Downey both gave
this to Pep, but Judge James
rated the round even.
The win was the 24th in 29
fights for Cadilli, who was un
marked at the finish. Cadilli
weighed 127, Pep 128. The loss
was Pep’s seventh in 197 bouts.
Pep was taken to the base hos
pital after the fight for stitches
in the cut eye.

Saucer May Meet Hurricane
Again if He Beats Whitehurst |
A return match with Hurricane
| Jackson may be the prize for
Chuck Saucer if the Washington
heavyweight beats Bert White
hurst of Baltimore in their eight- j
round match next Tuesday night 1
’ at Turner’s Arena.
Saucer’s manager, Dick O’Con

t: his man can whip Jackson, the
heavyweight from Rockaway \
: Beach. N. Y„ even though he
1 j failed by a considerable margin
i three weeks ago. Jackson!
knocked out Saucer in the third
■ | round.
“I still think Saucer can beat ;

Eastern title boxing for New
England last year.
Horne is facing double jeopar
dyr He will battle either Orville
Pitts, recent winner of the Pan
American 175-pound title, or Ed- ,
die Jenkins of Detroit, a good
boxer with long arms. The West- j
, ern coaches are planning some
strategy by shifting Pitts or Jen
kins into the middleweight divi
sion in an effort to strengthen
their position. They would like
to use both men.
The two Washington perform
ers have been saying ajl week
, that they will do their best to
: uphold Washington’s position in
intersectional Golden Gloves.
: established many years ago and
upheld brightly last year by
Heavyweight Len Kanthal and
. Lightweight “Sonny Boy” Wil
With the help of and
I Kanthal, the East managed to
beat its Western rivals last year
j for the first time in a decade.
Now that the Eastern coaches
j have tasted victory, they openly
admit maintaining a greedy po-
I sition by taking any and all
edges in an attempt to repeat.
“They gave it to us for years,”
James O’Donnell, one of the New
I York coaches, said today. “I
; think we re on top now and we
; might as well stay there.”
Western Lineup Mystery
! The Eastern squad probably
j will line up in the following po
j sitions: Joe Belleau, New’ York,
! 112; Robert St. John. New York,
i 118: Taylor, 126: Gene Tippett,
Pittsburgh, 135: Jimmy Archer,
New York, 147: Rudy Corney,
New York. 160: Horne, 175, and
Roy Bullock, New York, heavy
The Western lineup was a
complete mystery as the teams
prepared to face the weighing
| ceremonies. Not even the coaches
themselves were in a position to
name a possible starting lineup.
However, the Western aggre
gation has a row of good boys,
including Smith, the feather
weight: Light-heavyweights Pitts
and Jenkins; Lightweight Willie
Morton of Kansas City and
Heavyweight Eddie Catoe.
hurst, we’ll go after another,
match with Jackson.”
Whitehurst poses a serious
problem in O’Connell’s plans.
| The knockout artist has beaten
both Saucer and Jackson.
The Smith brothers, Gene and j
Harold, Washington feather- j
weights, will be more or less co-;
featured on a program which (
\ lists three eight-rounders.
Gene, the veteran, will meet
; Willie Alexander of Philadelphia,
j and Harold, the undefeated 19-
year-old, will take on Filberto
Osario, rugged Puerto Rican.
Promoter Vince McMahon is'
busy , trying to line up a strong
! supporting card.
