The Braves racked up four Chi-'
cago pitchers for 15 hits, includ-
ing home runs by Hank Aaron and
pitcher Lew Burdette. It was Aar-
on's 30th of the season, tying him
with the Cubs' Ernie Banks for
the league lead. Burdette spaced
seven hits for his 12th victory.,
Bobby Shantz snuffed out a be-
lated ninth inning rally by Kan-
sas City to preserve the Yankee
victory for Art Ditmar. Trailing
4-1, the Athletics kayoed relievers
Luis Arrylo and Bob Turley with
two runs and had runners on first
and second when Shantz came in
and got Norm Siebern on a long
fly to Maris. It was Maris' two-run
homer in the third, his 33rd of the
season, that proved the difference.
Senators Explode
The Senators knocked out Buck
Shaw with a four-run explosion in
the first inning and went on to
inflict the fifth straight defeat
upon the defending champion
White Sox. Two walks and succes-
sive singles by Faye Throneberry,
Billy Gardner and Earl Beattey

agerial debut at Cleveland. Wilson
had opened with a double and ad-
vanced to third on a sacrifice bunt
by pitcher Jim Perry, who became
the first pitcher in the league to
win 13 games,
Fares Badly
Joe Gordon didn't fare as well
in his managerial debut at De-
troit. A four run Red Sox seventh,
highlighted by Don Buddin's two
run triplet, hung the defeat on
Frank Lary.
Gordon came to the Tigers in
an unprecedented m a n a g e r i a 1
trade with the Indians for Dykes
llajor League

Two other Michigan natators
were in the finals of the 1500
meter freestyle match, Junior Win
Pendleton and sophomore War-
ren Uhler. But they were no match
for the tremendous pair of Alan
Somers and George Breen who
both were timed for a new Ameri-
can record at 17:40.0. The Judges'
decision went to Somers but both
men earned a spot on the squad.
Pendleton and Uhler were fifth
and sixth respectively.
The men's 100 meter breast-
stroke, which was supposed to de-
termine the second contestant in
the 200-meter Olympic event and
the medley relay member, was
won' by Paul Hait in 1:13.5. Chet
Jastremski, who could have cin-
ched his berth by placing first or
second, finished fourth. He had
previously finished second to Bill
Mullikin in the 200-meter con-
test. This result threw the decision
into the committee's lap and at
midnight they had not made a
Women's Records
The women's events provided
the world records, however, as
Chris von Saltza added the 400-
meter freestyle win to her earlier

tralia's Ilse Konrads. Young Car-
olyn House was runner-up in
Lyn Burke also came through
with a new world mark of 1:09.2
in winning the 100-meter back-
stroke over Nina Harmar. Miss

winner at Melbourne in 1956 failed
to make it this year by finishing
Paul Jean Pope made it two
diving titles this year in captur-
ing the women's platform contest
with 90.48 points, and Juno Stover

record fourth time by placing sec-
Webster and Miss Pope are both
residents of Santa Ana, Cal., and
both pupils of Lee.
Double Winner
Ann Warner was another double
winner, bettering the American

breaststroke. She had earlier cap-
tured the 100 meter top berth.
Jackie Danielson was runner-up
in the 200.
