DOVER, England (A')-Leonore
Modell, 14-year-old Sacramento,
Calif., schoolgirl became the
youngest person ever to swim the
English Channel yesterday, bat-
tling adverse tides for 15 hours
and 40 minutes on the crossing
from France.
Hundreds of spectators lining
the cliffs of Dover gave her a
roaring welcome when she wear-
ily waded from the cold waters of
the Channel.
The girl and her coach, Paul
Herron of Sacramento who has
swum the Channel in both direc-
tions, said that Leonore swims
swims under self-hypnosis.
"This swim has proved my
theory," Herron said. ""Leonore
has'been a guinea pig to prove my
theories on physical development."
Leonore slipped into the sea at
5:30 Thursday morning at Cap
Gris Nez, France, after ,a break-
fast of six eggs. On the English
side she encountered dense fog,
then adverse tides. She finally,
reached land 20 ,yards east off

Fox Succeeds.
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-The new manager.
of the San Francisco Giants is
scheduled to be Charley Fox, who
is almost - completely unknown
outside the organization.t
The Giants' front office has not
officially announced that Al Dark
is through, and there- probably
will " be no announcement until
the Giants have lost all chance
at the National League pennant.
Owner Horace Stoneham and
Dark have not been friendly for
some time. Stoneham reportedly
feels that Dark has not consulted.
him on team matters.
Rumors have had Dark at Hous-
ton; with the New York Mets or
at St. Louis next year. "I don't
know where I'll be in 1965," was
Dark's comment.
The Giants have shroudied the
name of the man who will succeed
Dark as manager of the Giants in
complete secrecy.
Fox currently is managing the
Tacoma team in the Pacific Coast
League, the top farm club of the
Giants.

Dover Harbor and directly under
the famed, 350-feet white cliffs.
She required an hour to swim
the last mile, struggling in the
darkness along the outside of the
Dover Harbor breakwater. -When
she reached the end, the swirling
whirlpool created by concrete and
cliffs threatened to dash .her
against the breakwater.
The girl said she spent hours
in near freezing water and ac-
customed herself to swallowing
quantities of sea water in her
training program.
The youngest previous conquer-
ror of the Channel was 17-year-
old Claudia McPherson of Canada,
who required 17 hours 17 minutes
for the crossing last year.

Upsets Brumel
KIEV, Russia (I)-Robert Shav-
lakadze, the last Olympic cham-
pion but relegated to the ranks
of the also-rans for four years,
has burst out of obscurity and
strengthened the Russians' al-
ready strong Olympic high jump
field.
Shavlakadze shaded world rec-
ord holder Valery Brumel, the
world's best, at 7 feet 11 inches
in winning the title in the Russian
national track and field cham-
pionships Friday.
It was believed to be Brumel's
first loss to a Russian since both
he and John Thomas of Boston-
then the favorite-were beaten by
Shavlakadze in the 1960 Olympic
games at Rome.
And the upset prompted Tass,
the Soviet official news agency, to
comment that it "suggests that
Brumel, probably, got used to easy
victories over his compatriots."
Both he and Shavlakadze clear-
ed 7-11/2, but Shavlakadze took
the title on fewer misses.
