From the South China Morning Post this week in: 1962 In Chicago, Sonny Liston, the 'bad man' of American boxing, crashed his way to the world heavyweight title, with a sensational one-round knockout over Floyd Patterson. Three quick thrusts had Patterson dethroned and beaten in 2 minutes and six seconds. Booed into the ring by a crowd who obviously disliked him, Liston stayed long enough to be cheered out the new champion after a stunned silence. It was a slow start to what would be one of the shortest world heavyweight title fights on record. Liston firmly punched with all the venom of his powerful frame as Patterson grimaced. A left hook caught Patterson on the head and he lost balance. Liston reacted unusually quickly, flashing a right to the chin and, before Patterson slumped to the canvas, he managed a finishing left to the chin. Patterson was helped to his corner in tears after failing to get off the floor. The record for a world heavyweight title fight was set on March 17, 1908, when Tommy Burns took one minute 28 seconds to knock out Jem Roche. In Oxford, the state of Mississippi has again turned away James Meredith, a Negro student, at the campus gates - foiling his plans to enrol at the all-white University of Mississippi for the third time in less than a week. Lieutenant-Governor Paul Johnson, backed by state highway patrolmen, refused to accept the 29-year-old. Four times US Justice Department Attorney John Doar told Mr Johnson he wanted Meredith to enter the campus. Four times the lieutenant-governor turned him down. A British doctor in London described in a medical magazine the 'terrifying result' on himself of a pep pill called Amphetamine. Dr John Earle, of Middlesborough, wrote in Family Doctor, that on taking the drug he had 'a remarkable sensation'. 'I was driving the car when suddenly I knew with complete certainty that I need not keep it on the road. I knew I could drive on the wall or in the fields just as well.' He said he stopped driving and went into a cafe for something to eat. After a half an hour the sensation wore off. 'Amphetamine is a useful drug which is rightly and properly prescribed by many doctors for certain conditions,' he wrote, but added that to take such pills without medical supervision was 'crazy'. Hongkong has produced its first eight-transistor multiband radio receiving sets with imported Japanese and American components. The shortwave sets were being assembled for export markets in the US and UK, a director of the Atlas Electronics Corp said. The best period for the UK market was from May to July, the cricket season, the director said. He said Hongkong-assembled radio sets were about 30 cents cheaper than the US product. Macao operators have raised the price of smuggling an illegal immigrant into Hongkong to $900. This is the result of the tight patrol of entry routes by the Royal Navy, the Army, the Hongkong Police and other units since September 14. For the first time these 'snake smugglers' face difficulties, but they are unlikely to give up their lucrative business that has made many millions of dollars in the past 11 years. Macao informants say the racketeers are mainly Chinese from Shanghai and Fukien (Fujian), the most resourceful in the game. Hongkong Police are going to crack down on motorists who give vent to their bad temper by sounding their horn every time they are held up in traffic. This practice was becoming very common, particularly when there was congestion as children were coming out of school, a traffic officer said. 'Sitting in the car sounding the horn angrily doesn't help. It is an offence to sound the horn of a stationary vehicle ... we shall enforce the law ... and it is also an offence to sound the horn in a silent zone.'
