Olympic
Briefs
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, July 27-The Olym-
pic torch, borne by relays of run-
ners, neared the finish of its long
trip from Mt. Olympic in Greece.
The fiery symbol was scheduled to
reach Brussels tonight. It will be
brought across the channel from
Calais to Dover on a British de-
stroyer tomorrow.
By meticulous timing, it is
planned that the last runner,
whose identity has been care-
fully hidden, shall trot into
Wembley Stadium at precisely
4:07 on Thursday afternoon-
seven minutes after the king
has opened the games - and
touch the flame to the great
torch which will blaze through
the nights and days of the
games, which end August 14.

On the Front Burner?
LONDON, The Olympic flame
will burn at Wembley Stadium
throughout the games on the same
kind of gas that some farmers use
in their kitchen stoves.
Two hundred cylinders of the
gas were supplied today to the
Olympic officials by a British
company.
* * *
Achin' Backs Relieved
WILBLEDON-Another Olym-
pic crisis was selved today.
U. S. women athletes, housed at
Soutbelands College, complained
of the hard mattresses. British
Olympic officials, being careful to
avoid chargeson ,international fa-
voritism, decided to re-equip all
the beds.

Ice Cream
UXBRIDGE, England - U. S.
Olympic athletes have cancelled
their order for American ice
cream which was being flown to
them from their homeland.
Instead, they're eating 400
ggallons a week of British "ice"
-and say there isn't enough
difference to make it worthwhile
to fly the stuff from home.
Oui, Oui, Monsieur !
LONDON - America's Olympic
women swimmers are shocked at
the scanty costumes worn by Eu-
ropean swimmers. And they mean
the men as well as the women.
"Why they hardly cover any-
thing," gasped Nancy Merki
Lees, 400 meter free styler from
Asheville, N.C. "The men's suits
are even worse than the wom-]
en's."
"They're making me self con-
scious," said Mary Patricia Healy
of Newark, N.J., of the relay
squad.

LONDON, July 27-(P)-Uncle
Sam's Olympic athletes dug into
their training today with renewed
intensity. None was permitted to
forget that American sports pres-
tige suffered a severe jolt when
Gus Lesnevich got his lumps last
night from Freddie Mills.
The lesson taught by the lightly
rated Briton might have come at
a very handy time three days
before the games begin. The
American athletes have not been
known for their lack of confidence
since their arrival in England.
Drills Continue Hard
Driven hard by their coaches,
they all put in strenuous practice
sessions today in mid-summer
heat. They revelled in, the strong
sunlight. Even the men swimmers'
had about shaken the last of the
colds they contracted upon their
frigid arrival.
Mel Patton, the great Southern
CalIfornia sprinter, took a brief
run on a practice track outside the
Stadium and said it felt lightning
fast. It is of the same crushed
tile and red clay composition as
the championship track.
Women Take A.M. Work
The women track and fielders
worked at a recreation field near
Padding ton Station in the morn-
ing, while their male counterparts
ran and jumped and sweated
throughiut the day at outlying
Uxbridge. The swimmers and
divers shared beautiful Wembly
Pool with the stars of dozens of
other nations.
Meanwhile, in a downtown of-
fice and basketball draw was
made with the favored United
States aggregation paired with
Switzerland in the first round.
Action for the 23 teams starts Fri-
day morning and 94 games will
have been played before a cham-
pion is decided on.
Whitfield Eases Up
Mal Whitfield, America's best
bet at both 400 and 800 meters,
practically concluded his training
with several sprints at shorter
distances. He runs in the 800 on
the opening day of competition.
He reeled off 220 yards in 21.6
seconds,, and then did successive
quarter-miles in .50 and :52.6.
Bourland Heads McKenley
Cliff Bourland of Los Angeles,
led a fast 200-meter trial in which
runners of several nations took
part. He finished two yards ahead
of Herb McKenley of Jamaica, in
20.8 seconds.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

BROOKLYN, July 27 - (A') -A
misjudged fly by Terry Moore and
Pee Wee Reese's run producing fly
enabled the Brooklyn Dodgers to
score twice in the ninth inning
and nip the St. Louis Cardinals,
3-2, today.
The Dodgers were trailing, 2-1,
going into the last frame. Gene
Hermanski singled to start the in-
ning, the fifth hit off Howie
Pollet. Hermanski moved to sec-
ond on a sacrifice and romped
home with the tying run when
Moore misjudged Bruce Edwards'
drive, the blow falling for a
double.
Pollet intentionally passed
Tommy Brown. A wild pitch
moved the runners up a base
and after Gil Hodges was pur-
posely walked to load the sacks,
Reese sent a long fly to Moore,
Edwards scoring after the catch
with the winning run.
The Cards broke a scoreless tie
in the fifth inning when Nippy
Jones doubled and Ralph LaPointe

singled. The Dodgers tied the
count in their half on singles by
Hodges, Reese and a force out.
In the sixth, the Cards moved
ahead again when Stan Musial
doubled and Enos Slaughter
singled. Musial collected three hits
in four tvips to boost his league-
leading batting average to .390.
Joe Hatten started for the
Dodgers and yielded all the
Cardinal runs and hits. Ile left
for a pinch-hitter in the eighth
and rookie Carl Erskine pitched
the ninth and held the Cards
hitless.
For Erskine, it is his second
victory for only two hitless in-
nings of work.
