The commission suspended many of the participants Fri- d a y, including Canadian h e a v y weight champion George Chuvalo; his man- ager- Irv Ungerman who also managed Gray; Ixtxer Jim Christopher of Delroit whom Chuvalo KOed in two rounds, and the promoter, Jack Keller of Re gin a. Following are excerpts from Canadian columns whose uTilcrs reacted to tlie I cieath of Gray, who was to be buried in his hometown of Three Plains, N.S., today, and Ihe ensuing allegations by Christopher who said he had received a death threat from while man dressed in a coal" if he didn't lake a dive in the second round of his fighl with Chuvalo: Milt Dnnnoll, Toronto Star: "Judge Ben Hewak should have no trouble in identifying that mysterious man who threatened fist fighlcr Jimmy Clirisiophcr. Since it was 15 below zero in that clny. a man wearing a coat certainly would he an oddity. That he also was while would make him stand out like a pygmy playing tight end for Ihe Blue Bombers. "Since Gray's death, the minister responsible for the boxing and wrestling commis- sion f Recrfi'ilion Minister Larry had a right Lo be embarrassed by the barbs which have been buried in the hides of the commis- sioners. "They have been accused of bungling, bumbling, ineptitude and ignorance of their duties. The discovery that Jimmy Christopher had been threat- ened with death on Ihe day of the fight was a most timely development that diverted some of the heat away from the commission. "E v e n Dcsjardins must have regarded Christopher's sloiT as something short of convincing. This intrepid white man wear- ing a into Christo- pher's hotel room oiiJ- numtwrttl two lo one because Christopher said his trainer, Lee Krantz, was there and said 'If you ain't in the tank in two, brother, you'll be goin1 home in a box.' Wilh that he walked is a terrible commentary on Chrh'fopher as a tiger" Maurice Smith, Winniprg Tree Press: "The trouble wilh boxing, particularly at the professional level, is that it is not well-governed or po- 1 i c e d. We think iLs grcaLst problem lies with many of the people associated with it. It is their greed and hunger for money. If box- ing should ever be banned be- of risks involved, then why not foot Charlie Stevens, Glas- gow News: would be so inclined lo absolve the medi- cal advisers of any wrong- doing. Tlie man working tlie corner is responsible for his man. He, and he alone- should bo ii things are not A-okay." Are Toloy, Halifax Chronl- cle-IJoralfl: "Preliminary re- porLs indicate that prc-fight examination of Lhc late Stu Gray was inadequate. These things arc usually rushed through too quickly, except in bouts which attract great crowds and big rcUirns." Nickcrson, Halifax Mail-Star: "It IwlutKtvos the Winnipeg boxing commission death moves eacli according lo his nature. The habitually hyslorieal raise the scream about and I'hi'ir number includes some who are equally quick lo re- vile any fighter who, unlike OUT OF TROUBLE Gone Liuler, from lajolla, Cal., lets his chip fly on his approach to the 18lh green here during the second round of play at the Jackie Gleoson Inverrary Classic, Friday.

(AP Wirepbolo) Trevino hoping to come back Gray, quits under pujii-sh- mcnL. "Boxing lo me is rough and dangerous the mosl basic and most natural and uncompli- cated of athletic competitions, its of tlio purest art forms. BuL Llicre is no quarrel wilh those who sincerely regard it as a vicious business that should have no place in a civilized society "The quarrel is with the part-time bleeding hearts, the professional sob sisters of press and politics and radio who seize Lhesc opportunilies to parade their own nobility. Some of the fakers now sobbing publicly over Gray have waxed ecstatic over the flashy footwork of an Ali, or the relentless plodding of a George Chuvalo. It must be comforting to have it both ways." Hal Walker, Calgary Her- ald: There will lie con- siderable lying about this whole easier, something which is in the tradition of the mud- dy-box fight world. But the first blame should rest with an obviou inexperienced Manitoba Boxing Commission. "An experienced commis- sion wouldn't allow the Irv Ungerman-Chuvalo touring road show into the province. Irv Ungerman has a habil of lining up these Bum- oMhc-MonLh shows Chris- topher has been described as a "mediocre" fighter by Chu- valo. What George means, really, is the guy was a set- up." Boh llughrs, Calgary Allier- lan: "It took someone named Stewart Gray loss titan 24 hours to lose a battle to live. He plodded along in a vacuum of obscurity until Al Sparks knocked him uncon- scious You wonder if the beginning of the end really began two months ago when he was injured in that inci- dent (truck accident) and refused to tell people there was something wrong with him There, has always Ijocn the lingering suspicion that professional boxing docs not police itself properly.
