Listen was reported as being the recipient of more than one and one half million dollars. The re sult of what wfll be done with his share of the money will come later. No one wants to believe that the fight was “fixed.’* There is no doubt about Liston have been refused service at places that were listed as desegregated. Some Negroes, though qualified for jobs, have been given the “run-a round" by firms that have outward ly posed as favoring integration.

He was nixed apparently in the fir* round and was pgaer abjp to show the killer Instinct and the ring poise that he has shown in his other fights. He was not the ring master that fistl ana has pictured him to be and even though Clay back-pedaled and did exactly what the experts said he would do Liston was nev er able to cope with the situation. The alleged blindness that Clay is said to have encountered in the fifth round was another conjec ture that gives cause for concern. (CONTINUED ON PAGE t) public schools, he stated.
