Cincinnati Continues To Drive for Flag

liever Dick Hall got Maris to hit
a towering fly to deep right center
that chased right fielder Earl:
Robinson back before he camped!
under it for the out, 20 feet short
of the wall.
In his final appearance, Maris
faced knuck eballingreliever Hoyt
Wilhelm. Manis fouled one back,
then started to check his swing on
the second pitch. But he couldn't
hold back and topped a soft roller
along the first base line. Wilhelm
picked it up, jogged over to first
and made the tag on Maris him-
Maris threw his batting helmet
away in disgust while the crowd
gave him a standing ovation.
That ended Maris' chances to tie
or surpass Ruth's record under the
official 154-decision limit imposed

Dodgers, still in contention al-
though far back, trailed Chicago
2-1 after 31/2 innings.
Wally Post's eighth inning hom-
er won it for the Reds and Joey
Jay (21-8) and was Cincinnati's
34th win by one run. They've lost
14 by a single tally.
Post's big blow that sailed into

BUFFALO, N.Y. OP) - Harry
Wismer, owner of the New York
Titans, has accused the Buffalo
Bills of "doctoring up" the films
of Sunday's' New York-Buffalo
game to omit a sideline fight.
The incident involved was a
sideline melee in which Wismer
claimed Buffalo Coach Buster
Ramsey slugged Al Dorow, the Ti-
tans' quarterback. Buffalo won

night. Leo Cardenas had four
hits for the Reds.
The Reds had a chance to
break the game wide open when
they scored their first run in the
second. With one out, Post, Car-.
denas and pick Gernert singled
in succession to load the bases.
Darrell Johnson's sacrifice fly
scored' Post and Gibbon then
walked Jay to load the bases again
before getting Elio Chacon on a
fly to Bill Virdon.
Jay allowed only three hits and
was in trouble only once before
the Pirates got to him for the
pair of runs in the eighth that
gave them the temporary lead.
Singles by Bill Mazeroski, Vir-
don and Dick Groat produced one
run and the other came in " on
Dick Stuart's single.
In the fourth the Pirates filled
the bases with two out on singles
by Stuart and Roberto Clemente
and a walk to Smoky Burgess.
Don Hoak, an evening-long target
of lusty boos from the crowd of
14,822, ended that threat by fly-
ing to Frank Robinson.

Coach Al Renfrew yesterday
disclosed the hockey schedule for
the 1961-62 season.
Two major changes from last
year's schedule will highlight the
season. The first is a December 8
meeting with Toronto at Detroit's
brand-new Cobo Hall. It will be
the first such meeting i the
arena. Renfrew said that Cobo
Hall had agreed to charge the
same one dollar admission nor-
mally charged students at the
The other addition is that Mich-
igan will this year participate in
the Rensselaer Polytechnic Insti-
tute Tournament during Christ-
mas vacation at Rensselaer, N.Y.
"They've been trying to get us
out there for three years now,"'
Renfrnew said. "It's good for the,
boys to play some different
teams," he added.
The other. teams in the tour-
nament will be McGill, Princetoe
and RPIL
There is lso a possibility that
Michigan will play the Czechoslo-
vakiarn team on February 28. The
only hitch is that the WCHA play-
offs will be held on March 1, 2,
and 3. This would really cramp
the schedule if Michigan makes
the playoffs. The game would be
played in Ann Arbor.

around a long time," Barack told
Earl Ruby, Sports Editor of the
Louisville Courier-Journal, in a
telephone interview. Barack is
from Columbus, Ohio.
