ente's two out 10th inning single
gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 2-1
victory over Milwaukee yesterday
and dropped the Braves a full
game behind the league-leading
Brooklyn Dodgers with only seven
games remaining in the drama-
packed National League race.
Righthander Bob Friend, the
Pittsburgh pitching ace, stopped
the pennant contenders with a
taut 4-hit masterpiece to bring his
season record to 16-16.
Clemente's single broke a 1-1
deadlock after the Braves knotted
the score in the ninth with the
aid of two errors by Pirate first
sacker Dale Long.
Bill Mazeroski led off the Pitts-
burgh tenth with his second hit of
the game, moved to second on a
sacrifice and tallied on Clemente's
solid smash to center.
Shepard Homers
Jack Shepard's seventh homer
of the season-a 370 foot poke over
the left field wall-put the Pirates
ahead in the seventh.
Chuck Tanner, batting for Mil-

to lead off the ninth and moved
to second on a sacrifice; Frank
Torre advanced him to third with
an infield roller.
With two out, Hank Aaron

Experts Foresee Close Race inNFL


Today I begin the third year of writing this col-
umn for Philip Morris Cigarettes, and I am merry in
my heart
I am merry for several reasons. First, because I am
being paid.
Not, let me hasten to state, that an emolument was
necessary. "Sirs," I said a few days ago to the makers
of Philip Morris, who underneath their dickeys are as.
frieridly as pups and twice as cute, "Sirs," I said to this
winsome assemblage, "there is no need to pay me for
writing this. column. If I can introduce America's college
men and women to Philip Morris's natural tobacco good-
ness, if I can inaugurate them into the vast sodality of
Philip Morris smokers and thus enhance their happiness,
heighten their zest, upgrade their gusto, magnify their
cheer, broaden their bliss, augment their glee, and in-
crease their PQ-"
PQ?" said the makers, looking at me askance.
"Pleasure Quotient," I explained.
'Ah!" said the makers, nodding their sweet, shaggy
"If," I continued, "I can do these splendid things foi
the college population of America, there is no need for
money, because I am more than amply repaid."
We wept then. I am not ashamed to say it. WE
WEPT! I wish the wiseacres who say big business is
cold and heartless could have been there that day. I wish
they could have witnessed the deep, croaking sobs that
racked the gathering, the great, shimmering tears that
splashed on the boardroom table. We wept, every man-
jack of us. The makers wept. The secretaries wept. I
wept. My agent, Clyde Greedy, wept. We wept all.
"No, no!" cried one of the makers, whose name is
Good Sam. "We insist on paying you."
"Oh, all right," I said.
Then we laughed. The gloom passed like a summer
shower. We all laughed and chose up sides and played
stoop-tag and had steaming mugs of cocoa and lit plump,
firm, white cigarettes, brimming full of natural tobacco
goodness. I mean Philip Morris,' of corris!

Refreshed and exalted, we returned to the busi-
ness at hand. "Now then," said one of the makers, whose
name is Merry Andrew, "what will you write about in
your column this year?"
"About students and teachers," I said. "About classes
and cutting. About eds and coeds. About Greeks and
independents. About the important issues that occupy
the supple young minds -of college America."
"Like what?" asked one of the makers, whose name
is Tol'able David.
"Like how to finance a full social life without a re-
volver," I replied. "Like how to wear Bermuda shorts
though your knees look like brain-coral. Like how to
double-date in an MC",
"And will you," asked one of the makers, whose name
is Peter-Sit-by-the-Fire, "from time to time say a pleas-
ant word about Philip Morris Cigarettes, which are now

Even in aviation's earliest years, it was axiomatic that "proof
must come in the air". Out of this, the flying test bed was born
....and slowly grew to its present-day stature as an indispen-
sable engineering tool, implemented by an extensive variety
of engineering skills.
The problems of observing and recording an engine's per-
formance in the air are legion. Most recently, a Boeing B-50
and a North American B-45 were readied as test beds for
Pratt & Whitney Aircraft's J-57 and J-75 turbojets. The
experimental power plant, contained in a retractable pod in
the bomb bay, can be flown to locations where atmospheric
conditions permit most efficient testing. The prototype is
then extended into the air stream for actual flight work with
the regular engines idled, and the job of observing and
recording in-flight performance begins..
From the first shakedown flight to the test engine's even-
tual acceptance, invaluable information is gathered. Perhaps
the most vital contribution made by P & W A's flying test-bed
program is the great reduction in time between initial devel-
opment and quantity production of engines. Important, too,
is the quality and diversity of engineering talent involved in
such a program, for it spells out remarkable opportunity for
today's engineering student.
