Club owners met with baseball
Commissioner William Eckert for
more than two hours in a joint
meeting of the two leagues after

The project of two divisions
within each league was tabled as
the two-day meetings closed. Joe
Cronin, president of the American
League, said, "We had a great,
long discussion and covered many
facets of the plan.
"American League owners all
voted for divisional play," said
Cronin, who added the plan would
call for the winners of each of
the five-team divisions to meet in
a best 3-of-5 playoff for the right
to represent the American League
in the World Series.
Eckert said, "The National
'League did not want to move this
fast. The proposal did not come
to a vote and, therefore, I took no
action. We certainly will want to
study this plan."
Warren Giles, president of the
National League, said the main
objection to the plan was it was
not presented in time to give the
National League time to study it.
Fourth Plays First
"I don't think baseball should
be put in a position where it is
possible for a fourth place club
to play a first place club in a
What Giles meant was if the
American League did go into di-
visions, one divisional team with
a poor record might defeat their
divisional team and represent the
league in the championship.
In other action, Charles O. Fin-
ley, 'owner of the Kansas City
Athletics, issued the following

The Detroit Tigers whipped the
Baltimore Orioles 5-0 yesterday
night behind the three-hit pitch-
ing of Denny McLain in a game
called by rain with the Tigers at
bat in the eighth inning.
Detroit scored twice in the
eighth on a run-scoring single by
Norm Cash and a sacrifice fly by
Ray Oyler when rain began to fall
for the third time.
Bill Freehan knocked in two of
the Detroit runs with a fourth-
ining bloop single and a drive in
the sixth which caromed off the
foot of losing pitcher Bill Dillman.
Al Kaline launched two of the;
three Detroit rallies with doubles,
scoring on Jim Northrup's double
in the third and on the single byI
Cash in the eighth.
McLain, bringing his record to
13-12, hurled hitless ball until
Brooks Robinson singled with two
outs in the fourth.

trials of the Pan American
The victory on the Winnipeg
fieldway sent the Crimson colleg-

made them a heavy favorite for
the gold medal. The Canadian

repechage heats today for another
shots at the Yanks.
Stroked by Ian Gardiner of
Topsfield, Mass., the Harvards,
unbeaten since they lost to the
Vesper Boat crew in the 1964
Olympic trials, surged to the front
at the start and had a 112 length
lead at the halfway mark of the
2,000 meter course. They won by
that margin in 6:18 with Argen-
tina third, 25 lengths behind.
Four With Cox
Canada led all the way in win-
ning the first heat of the fours
with coxswain by about a length
over Cuba with Mexico third and
Peru fourth in the opening event
of the rowing program.
Canada thus qualifies for the
finals Saturday. The three losers
go into a repechage, second
chance for losers, Friday with the
two losers of the second heat.
The first three in the repe-
change today also qualify for the
final with the two heat winners.
Argentina's South American
champions came from behind to
beat the United States by 12
lengths with Paraguay a badly
trailing third in the second heat

Argentina led the United States
until nearly 200 meters from the
finish. Then the Yanks came on

over his oars and stopped rowing.

With swimming concluded and
track taking the day off, activities
at the Games dwindled to pre-
liminary heats in rowing and scat-
tered activity on the baseball,
boxing and basketball front.
The American victory over Can-
ada in women's basketball came
on a free throw by Lola Ham of
Laverne, Ikla. She got her chance
when Canada's Diane Doyle
charged her. Miss Ham converted
the second of her two free throws.
Action was close throughout the
game and particularly so in the
final minute. First, Lois Finley of
Claude, Tex., scored one of two
free throws to put the United
States ahead 42-41 with 45 sec-
onds to play.
Twenty seconds later, Mary
Coutts, a physical education
teacher from Victoria, converted
one of two free throws to tie 42-
all. Then came Miss Ham's deci-
ding free throw.
Mrs. Carole Phillips Aspedon,
captain of the United States team
from Hamburg, Iowa, scored 10
of her 18 points in the second half
to keep the United States in the
game. Miss Finley was second high
for the Americans with 12 points.
Mrs. Coutts paced Canada with 11.
The victory kept the United
States moving toward a silver
medal in the tournament behind
Brazil which is unbeaten in the
six team double round robin play.
The United States which will con-
clude competition in a game with
Cuba Friday has a 5-2 record.
The total was one short of the
major league record of eight,
shared by five clubs.
The loss was the second-place
Cubs' five in their last six games
and dropped them six full games

Like Ali, Ellis frequently drops
his left hand low and dances
around the ring.
"I've always done that, not just
because I worked several years
with Ali," Ellis said. "I drop the
left sometimes while trying to get
a man to commit himself. It's like
a fish. You put a worm on the
line and get a fish to bite at it."
"He's a fisherman," said An-
gelo Dundee manager of Ellis and
former trainer of Ali. "Ellis uses
