MOSCOW O--The Soviet Summer Daily
Union swept to five more
gold medals, three of them
in the blue ribbon track and
field, and the United States
had to be content with a
single bronze in a one-sided
battle of the giants yester-
day in the World University
Games. out of Fort Worth, Texas., Given a default by Senegal,
It was a disappointing day who tied Russia's Juri Isa- they carry their unbeaten

Henry Homers
MONTREAL ( ) - Henry Aa-
ron hit the 703rd home run of
his career in the sixth inning of
the Braves' game against the
Montreal Expos.
After striking out his first
time up in the second inning,
and fouling to the catcher in
the third, Aaron lined a one-
ball, two-strike pitch over the
left-center field fence for his
30th home run of the season.
It left Aaron just 15 home
runs behind Bahe Ruth'shall-
time baseball record of 714
home runs.
The hit, off right - hander
Steve Renko, was the 1377th ex-
tra - base hit of his career, ty-
ing him with Stan Musial, for-
mer St. Louis Cardinals' star
for the all-time lead in that de-
partment.
where track and field be-
gan in bright sunshine and
ended with the men's pole
vault after dark with the
lights of the Gothic univer-

from the hill.
The pole vault provided
the United States its con-

cause of more misses. The
event was taken by France's
Francois Tracanelli, who
cleared the bar at 17-912.
The Americans could still
take some pride in their bas-
ketball team, however. The
teenage charges of Coach
Ed Badger scored their sec-
ond straight crushing vic-
tory, beating Sweden 120-31,
and gained the semifinals.
They are quick and con-
fident. They think they're
going to beat the favored
Russians. David Thompson,
the North Carolina State
sophomore, a n d Marvin
Barnes of Providence Col-
lege again were the stand-
outs.
The U.S. women's basket-
ball team, beaten by the
Russians in the opening
game, kept their medal
hopes alive by beating
France 54-23. The women
are playing in a preliminary
group of four round robbins:
The men's team now has
scored 243 points in two
games and have shown tre-
mendous speed and poise.

playoff is scheduled leading
to the finals.
Badger substituted freely
against the Swedes and for
the second straight game
the 7-foot-3 Tom Burleson
of North Carolina State led
the scoring. He rang in 24
points while Thompson and
Barnes, playing only parts
of the first two halves, had
20 and 18, respectively. U.S.
Greco-Roman wrestlers and
tennis players continue to
look good in early elimina-
tions.
A first-round victory was
turned in by Michigan's Bill
Davids.
The Soviet Union pro-
duced the women's penta-
thlon champion, Nadezhda
Tkatchenko, the women's
discus winner, Faina Melnik,
and the men's 100-meter
king, Yuri Silov.
The Russian men won the
optional exercises gymnas-
tics followed by Japan and
Romania, with the United
States sixth.
Paola Pigni won the al-
ways exciting women's 1,500-
meters and a Nordic runner
with the intriguing name of
Mona-Lisa Pursianen, of
Finland, scored in the wom-
en's 100-meter dash.
After two days of com-
petition, the Soviet Union,
had amassed a total of nine
gold medals, two silver and
two bronze while the United
States had only a silver and
a bronze-no gold.
However, the Americans
are expected to pick up
ground when swimming and
diving begin next Tuesday.
In 1970 at Turin, the wom-
en swimmers accounted for
19 of the Americans' 22 gold
medals. The Russians led in
overall gold with 26.
