North, South, East and

over the country. Over 700
y o u n g, aspiring athletes,
from the ages of 10 to 17
converge on the little sleepy
college town of Ann Arbor
in the heart of the Huron
River Valley.- All of them
in search of victory in the
seventh annual AAU Junior
Olympics which begins to-

Age groups are exactly what
they imply; competition within a

Most of the attention in the
country is given to older, more
established athletes who are
veterans of national meets. Yet
few realize that they all came up
the same way, through the age
group program. And without the
age group program, they would
not be the big names that they
are today. Names like Spitz,

Ann Arbor will be heavily rep-
resented in the swimming com-
petition to be held at Fuller Pool,
on Fuller Road on the way to
North Campus. A strong Ann
Arbor Swim Club contingent, un-
der the tutelage of coach Johanna
High, stands a good chance of
taking some top honors. Danny
Stephenson leads the men's di-
vision swimming three gureling
freestyle events while Jenny
Ogle tackles both butterfly events
for the women.
Several aspiring divers will be-
gin competition at four today.

Dave Goltz emerged from the
Minnesota bullpen last night to
deal Detroit a 12-1 defeat.
The loss checked the Tigers'
winning streak at four games and
ended a losing skid by the Twins
Carew lifted his batting aver-
age to .360 with five hits in six
trips and reached 1,000 hits for
his ,career. The Twins ripped Joe

sparked the St. Louis Cardinals
to a 9-5 victory over the Houston

Newt Loken says the action over
at Crisler Arena will be out-
standing with 14 of the country's
finest gymnasts competing.
But the highlight seems to be
the track and field competition
at Ferry Field. There will be
some real fleet youngsters com-
peting in the two-day action.
Among them will be Alvin Cren-
shaw, from Dallas, Texas, who
is a double state champion in the
440 and 880. Crenshaw is con-
sidered the cream of a very good
crop this year. To challenge the
T e x a s Tornado will be Balti-
more's Clifford Wiley who runs
a fast 100, 9.6 to be exact, and
Illinois 880 champ Charlie White.
AND IF YOU like to see your-
self on television, you'll get your
chances as CBS Sports Spectacu-
lar is taping the proceedings for
an Aug. 19 telecast.
Tickets are $1 per event or a
fin for the whole ball of wax.
The best thing for these ath-
letes would be a large turnout
from the community to lend sup-
port to some fine young warriors.
Who knows maybe an Olympic
champion is among them?

since 1957, erupted for five runs
in the sixth and followed with a

on Kosco's hit. Pete Rose'; two-
out single added another run.

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee's
George Scott blasted a one-out,
ninth inning homer to lift the
Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-4 de-
cision over the Chicago White
Sox last night.
Scott's homer, his 17th of the
baseball season off reliever Cy
Acosta, 7-3, broke a 4-4 tie which
the White Sox had forged in their
half of the ninth on Pat Kelly's
single off reliever Eduardo Rod-

stiffened and preserved the .tie
